The scenery is quiet, clean, and shady, sitting on the serene Dog River. Speaking of dogs, your pupper is surely welcome at Shady Acre, with plenty of greenery for them to prance around on, as well as do their business. Shady Acres offers numerous amenities including access to free WiFi, cable and TV, and a library work-space with a free book exchange. There are showers and bathroom facilities, as well as laundry facilities.
Take advantage of the Dog River and provided boat ramp during your camping adventure, by taking a boat out onto the water. Go for a pretty boat ride or maybe try your hand at fishing any of the various fish that call Dog River home. Some of these include Striped Bass, Bream, Catfish, Redfish, Gar, and Speckled Trout. The campground is also just minutes away from the open water of the Gulf of Mexico, where you can sail and open-sea fish year round. Another activity that visitors often engage in is bird watching, especially during the Spring and Fall when birds migrate down to the Gulf of Mexico from their northern dwellings.
