Pics from around the camp

To experience the REAL Florida, visit Middleton's Fish Camp at Blue Cypress Lake, 800-258-5002 or 772-258-0150

As the only camp on beautiful Blue Cypress Lake, only Middleton's Fish Camp and Jeanne and Joe Middleton can show you the Real Florida in this part of the state. Featuring full bait & tackle , boat ramp, primitive camping, free showers, lodging, fishing guides, boat rentals, pontoon boat eco-tours and photography tours.

Florida's best kept secret is located 22 miles west of Vero Beach and 6 miles east of Yeehaw Junction off Route 60, the Real Florida at Blue Cypress Lake teems with fish such as Large Mouth Bass, Speckled Perch (Crappie), Bluegills, Shellcrackers and some of the best tasting catfish anywhere.

Ospreys abound, and are especially prevalent around nesting time. You can also see owls, hawks, ducks, herons, cranes and more! 

You can rent a boat (boat & motors or pontoon boats) and take your own tour, or you can hire one of our guides to take you. 

Middleton's Fish Camp is a full service Bait & Tackle Shop with gas and oil for boaters, plus ice, sodas and snacks are available. We also have fresh Blue Cypress Catfish, whole or fillets, as supplies allow.

We have a nice boat ramp, and water levels are adequate, most of the time. 

We also have cabins and trailers. Some of our units are adjacent to docks at the back doors. Just imagine this view at your back door!


If you have questions about what's biting (did you see Jeanne's Fishing Reports?) or water levels, or whatever, please call the shop at 800-258-5002 or 772 778-0150.

About Blue Cypress Lake

Blue Cypress Lake is one of the most beautiful natural lakes in Florida.

The average depth of Blue Cypress Lake is 8 feet and it has some of the cleanest water found in any Florida lake. Blue Cypress Lake is approximately 6,555 acres and is the headwaters to the St. Johns River.

The majority of Blue Cypress Lake's edges are lined with cypress trees. There are small bayous with lily pads, sawgrass and submerged logs around the edges. Fish attractors have been placed around Blue Cypress Lake in the more open areas of the lake.

Blue Cypress Lake is best known for Large Mouth Bass, Speckled Perch (Crappie), Bluegills, Shellcrackers and Catfish.

Yes, there are alligators! So we don't recommend swimming for people or pets.


Blue Cypress Lake and Middleton's Fish Camp are located at the end of a rustic 5-mile graded road (sometimes graded "F"!), off SR 60, that winds through fields, wetlands, pastures and farmlands. Please be sure to wave when you pass anyone along the way, as is customary in these here parts.

"Primitive camping" (i.e.; no hookups) is available for tent campers and RVs, however space is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis.

As beautiful as things are here, we do have to share our World with bugs, snakes and other creatures. Please come prepared.
