The Sertoma Youth Ranch is an 80 acre wooded campground which was organized in 1974. Experience camping like in the old days, but with the convenience of hot showers and indoor facilities. Set up your tent in our primitive area or bring a camper and hook up with water and electric service. We also have a propane refilling tank and dump station for your convenience. Campfires are allowed in proper receptacles. We welcome well behaved, domestic pets on a leash.

Sertoma Youth Ranch is a non-profit organization founded by Sertoma Clubs in the Tampa Bay Area, that provides youth groups from all over the state of Florida the opportunity to enjoy rustic outdoors, free of charge.. It is run by a Board of Directors, elected from Sertoman's and Ranch members.

OUR MISSION: We believe that our children should inherit this small haven of Florida in it's natural state, with programs to encourage their national heritage and culture. The Ranch will always be available to all groups of children, including the physically and mentally challenged at no charge.

Sertoma Youth Ranch is home to many music festivals that help provide us with necessary funding so we can maintain this beautife haven for the children of today and generations to come. The Annual Thanksgiving Bluegrass Festival, of which 100% of the proceeds go to the Ranch, is our main fundraiser. Come join us for dinner and enjoy our brand new 8,000 aq. foot pavillion and the best Bluegrass in the country! 

We strive to keep the land clean and the wildlife safe so that future generations may enjoy this outdoor recreational area. Sertoma Youth Ranch will always be available to all supervised groups of children, including the physically and mentally challenged, at no charge.

As a concerned individual, you care. The challenges faced by today's communities draw your attention. They are overwhelming to the individual. Yet caring, committed people, banded together, can and do make a difference.

It's called the Sertoma difference...........
