Highland Park Fish Camp in Deland, Florida is proudly frozen in time – it’s the way “old Florida” used to be, before theme parks arrived on the landscape. In 2012, we are celebrating our 50th anniversary of the family owned fish camp, where the largemouth bass are biting year round. This rustic destination has updated conveniences over the years, but nature has been preserved. Highland Park Fish Camp is an authentic haven carved out of the wilderness and the perfect place for the fisherman, the family that loves camping and the nature lover

Highland Park Fish Camp on the beautiful St Johns River near DeLand has been there for about forever. Funky and fun - a great place to buy bait and tackle and rent a boat for the day.
