Fisheating Creek Outpost, Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area, Palmdale, Florida.
April, 2015 to present
The Fisheating Creek Outpost is located in rural Glades County along the banks of the Fisheating Creek, one of only two navigable natural waterways flowing unimpeded into Lake Okeechobee. The river’s tannin-stained waters wind through ranch lands and wetlands shaded by towering stands of cypress trees, evoking for many a bygone era. The Florida Wildlife Management Area attracts campers, hikers, paddlers, hunters and fisherman from all over Florida and beyond.
At Fisheating Creek Outpost, Cape Leisure operates a campground, a camp store, and provides canoe and kayak rentals under a concession contract with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The campground offers 120 campsites, including 48 full-hookup RV sites offering water, sewer and electric. The Outpost camp store provides camping, fishing and picnic supplies, groceries, snacks and drinks, as well as souvenirs, gifts, sundries, books and field guides.
Our fleet of 50 canoes and kayaks is available for rental by the hour at the boat ramp within the campground. Cape Leisure also provides exclusive daily livery service to upstream boat ramps at Burnt Bridge and Ingram Crossing, providing paddles back to the Outpost of 8 and 15 miles, respectively. Guided, interpretive tours also are offered.
