          Yes, Most State Parks have both water and electric. No sewer hook up but has a dump station.

          Do you still have to make reservation in person and be a Pinellas County resident?

          No. Pinellas county residents get to reserve 7 months ahead. While non residents must wait until 6 months ahead. Even their hold back sites are available on line now.

          Does the site rental at the campground include the fee for entrances to and from Fort de Soto park swimming areas and fishing piers for the same length of time as the campsite rental?

          Yes. The camping fee includes entrance fees. They will stop you to check. But no problem.
