Oscar Scherer State Park Campground will be closed May 1st 2019 through November 22nd, 2019
To improve access to the campground and for added camper safety Oscar Scherer State Park are replacing the existing campground bridge, which is the only way for campers and RVs to access the campground.
Bridge work may be completed early so please check Reserve America periodically for reservation opportunities.
Please note: The Park will remain open for day use at regular hours – 8:00 am to sunset
Please call the Ranger Station – 941.483.5956 – if you have any questions.
Thank You, Tony Clements, Park Manager
Friends of Oscar Scherer Park
The FOSP is a non-profit organization; officially designated a CSO – Citizen Support Organization – by the DEP. We operate under usual non-profit guidelines but have state oversight, due to our affiliation to a state park.
Our purpose is to raise funds from events and appropriate grants that can be used by Oscar Scherer State Park for projects and equipment purchases. Basically the “Friends” make up the shortfall in state funding and also plan more ambitious projects that we consider beneficial to the park.
