Camp Mack’s River Resort 

Camp Mack’s River Resort is a recreation event venue in Lake WalesFlorida with water access on the Kissimmee River that leads into both Lake Kissimmee and Lake Hatchineha. Many large fishing tournaments are launched at the boat ramp and the weigh-ins held at the stage at Camp Mack. Other large events held here have included the annual Rockin’ on the River Autism charity concert event, numerous airboating launch events and year-end fishing league awards banquets. Camp Mack’s River Resort has been a ‘fish camp’ for well over 100 years [1] and on a geological map from 1836, this area was described as Tyson’s Camp.[2] In the 1980s RV sites were added[3]and in 2006, 65 additional RV sites were added (215 total sites now) as well as a 40 unit fishing themed motel (called Liar’s Lodge Motel]) and an indoor storage facility. The facility has 85 boat docks, boat ramps, a general store that has been there for over 80 years,[1] 10 cabins, a clubhouse, swimming pool, a walk up restaurant and a full-service indoor bar called Liar’s Lair. The Lake Kissimmee State Park, containing 5,930 acres of land, is located near the end of Camp Mack Road across from the Camp Mack property. The State Park has frontage on the Kissimmee River with over 13 miles of hiking/biking trails, 6 miles of equestrian trails and is also on the Great Florida Birding & Wildlife trail.  

FROM Sarah  : Actually LKSP doesn’t  have frontage on the Kissimmee  River.  Camp Mack does. 

The Kissimmee  River . 

The park is surrounded  by Lake Kissimmee, Tiger Lake  and Lake Rosalie. Zipprer Canal runs through LKSP directly connecting Lake Kissimmee And Lake Rosalie. 

Camp Mack  sits between  Lake Kissimmee  And Lake Hatchineha with part of the Kissimmee  River at the lands edge. 

It’s a beautiful  place and where Danny And I first lived in the RV. 

Then we lived at Lake Kissimmee  State Park .

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
