Pioneer Park is located in Zolfo Springs, Florida. This park, owned and operated by Hardee County, Florida, is at the northwest corner of US 17 and Florida Highway 64. It is bounded by those two highways and on the north and west by Peace River. Roughly the northern half of the park is wooded.

Pioneer Park has many features. Hurricane Charley caused much damage to the park on August 13, 2004, and not all the damaged structures were repaired. On the west is Pioneer Park Lake, a manmade 8.5 acre body of water. On the lake and along Peace River fishing is allowed. Also, people canoe on Peace River. Areas in the park are set aside for campers.

  • Non electric sites for 15 a nite. Boat ramp on the peace river. Restrooms and showers. Very well shaded. Patrolled by law enforcement. Museum and small zoo on premises. I've never seen this campground with no vacancy. You can always find some type of site. Very nice caretaker and manager, but sometimes hard to reach by phone. Sites first come, first served. Just pick a site and they will find you to settle up. Surrounding area is authentic Old Florida.
  • Great campsite and museum. The park closes at dusk, but you can put your boat in and leave your vehicle if you want to camp on the river.
