About the Masonic Park:
Founded in 1969, the Masonic Park and Youth Camp is 204 pristine acres of wilderness property located in Wimauma. The property is bordered by three quarter miles of the Little Manatee River, has over 125 acres of hiking trails, and a lake that is home to various aquatic life, including bass, sunfish, catfish, and soft shell turtles. Throughout the park, you'll find some of the most beautiful wildlife that Florida has to offer.
The Masonic Park and Youth Camp was designed to encourage and empower kids to participate in traditional outdoor recreational activities.

Important Notice about Fishing:
Fishing is catch and release ONLY.
Youth may fish.
Adults may fish ONLY IF they have a fishing license.
What to Bring:
Your children will need to bring thier own fishing poles, equipment & bait. None will be provided. Also, if any families have any additional baseball supplies, like bats, balls, and helmets, please bring those along so we are adequately supplied. As with every campout, it is very important to bring flashlights and/or lanterns for your family. It gets dark early, and setting up camp and be able to see your whereabouts will be close to impossible without adequate lighting. We must teach our cubscouts to "Be Prepared!"
