Under the Big (or Small) Tent!

Aerial view of the Great Clermont Campout in previous years.

It’s time for the third annual Great Clermont Campout at Waterfront Park, 330 3rd St. Enjoy a night under the stars on beautiful Lake Minneola beginning Feb. 2, at 11am and continuing through Sunday.

Campsites go quickly so reservations need to be made soon. If you have questions, email Maritza Rivera at or call her at 352.708.5975.

“This popular event is a wonderful way for families to enjoy Clermont’s great outdoors overnight in a safe environment,” City Manager Darren Gray said.


It’s sure to be a weekend of family fun for all ages. Make special memories you’ll never forget as you cozy up by the bonfire with s’mores and campfire songs, watch movies under the stars (“Cars 3” and “Goonies”). Like games? Play backyard games and enjoy activities like camping bingo, trivia, and neon soccer. You or your family will definitely want to enter the contest for best tent poster.

Dinner and breakfast are provided and everyone gets a free T-shirt while each family gets a bag with towel!


This great family event, presented by the city of Clermont, is sponsored by South Lake Hospital/Orlando Health, Giant Recreation World, Insight Credit Union, Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute, and McDonald’s of Clermont.
