Wright Lake Campground


Wright Lake is located approximately 25 miles from the Gulf of Mexico in an area known as the Forgotten Coast. Wright Lake and nearby Hickory Landing provide easy access to the Apalachicola River, known for its sport fishing, boating and paddling. You will never run out of things to do!


Facilities

The campground includes 1 electric and 18 nonelectric campsites with picnic tables, grills, tent pads and fire rings. The recreation area is fairly level and easily accessible. The comfort station has flush toilets and warm showers.

Nearby attractions

The Apalachee Savannahs Scenic Byway is part of a nationwide program to provide viewing opportunities of well-managed and pleasing forest landscapes. This scenic drive is an excellent way to see the forest, as it showcases grassy, open savannahs sporting the most diverse collection of wildflowers in Florida's Panhandle. Nearby, historic Fort Gadsden played an important role in Florida history. Located along the Apalachicola River, this interpretive area offers detailed information about the site and its history along with trails, river access, and a picnic area. Detailed interpretive information in the form of kiosks and signage lead you through the site of both forts and the cemetery where the victims from 1816 are buried.

Natural feaures

You will find peace and quiet on a ridge in the Apalachicola Savannahs. The longleaf pine dominates this open landscape where wiregrass, or sometimes palmetto, covers the forest floor. Swamps and savannahs are commonly interspersed with the longleaf community.

Recreation

Wright Lake is a quiet scenic lakefront recreation area that offers a host of amenities and activities for campers and day-trippers. The area around the clear, spring-fed lake offers both a day-use area for swimming, picnicking, and hiking, and a campground in a beautiful forest setting along one portion of the lakeshore. It is perfect for fishing and boating. The campground bathhouse includes flush toilets and hot showers. Picnic tables and grills are scattered among trees with views of the lake. Hikers can enjoy a 4.6-mile trail that winds through several different ecosystems in the area, and there is a short 0.2 mile loop that circles the lake. Nearby Hickory Landing offers boating access to Owl Creek and the Apalachicola River.

A formal-sounding name for camper van, but just as photogenic.

Class A

Drivers should be comfortable driving bus-sized vehicles and dealing with parking limitations. Great for delivery.

Truck Camper

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
