Northwest Florida Water Management District Adds 58 Campsites to Its Online Reservation System

HAVANA – The Northwest Florida Water Management District has added 58 campsites to its online camping reservation system. These campsites are located along the Apalachicola, Escambia, and Choctawhatchee rivers. With these new additions, there are now 88 campsites within 28 areas available to reserve online for free.

“One of the District’s priorities is making the use of public lands easier and more convenient for our visitors, whether they’re from across town or across the country,” District Executive Director Brett Cyphers said. “By providing potential visitors the ability to reserve more campsites online, we can better ensure a more predictable and positive experience. And that’s what we want in the end, more people getting outside and enjoying the natural places they pay to support and protect.”

To make a campsite reservation, visitors must first register for a free online account. Once this is done, visitors can then reserve a site up to 11 months in advance for up to seven days. Two non-consecutive reservations are allowed at one time for each account.

New signs designating, “Camping By Reservation Only” have been placed at the newly-added campsites. Day-use is still available at those recreation areas where signs are posted and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
