'a short walk'... no. Ft Desoto is 'within' biking or driving since it has beaches within the park, but not AT the campground. The campground IS on water, but it is the brackish interior waters of the area, good only for fishing. The beaches nearby, though, are beautiful, and worth the bike ride or quick drive to. Once you've paid your entrance fee for the park, you have use of any of them the whole time you are there, and several of the beach areas have their own bath houses, picnic areas, rentals, and food/clothing/swim wear convenience shops. Very nice.

There are several RV parks in the Clearwater area, Clearwater Travel RV Park, to name a good one, and is within a fairly quick drive to either Clearwater beach, where all the folks and traffic is, or you can make a quick drive over the Clearwater bridge to Sand Key park - $5 all day parking, beautiful wide and long beach, jetty, watch the boats come and go, fishing, and bath houses, beach food, and rentals.

Not too far from the area you are looking is Holiday Cove RV Resort. We love the resort and the area, and are weekenders over the summer coming from the Orlando area.

It's just a short bicycle ride over the Cortez bridge to Anna Maria Island. Beautiful beaches, free trolley, great restaurants and live music on weekends, family atmosphere. If you're a boater, it's heaven.

It's an ownership park but lots can be rented through the Condominium Owners Assoc.

You mentioned Tampa, but if you want close to a beach, you have a lot more options on the East coast. That may or may not be an option for you.

You'll pay big time to have a walk to the beach campground. If you have a car, or rent one, you should have no trouble finding something within a short drive.
