Enjoy your Camden community

Spring is the perfect time to enjoy all the amenities in your community! The pool temperatures are warming, and the lounge chairs are calling your name. Lay back poolside or hang out in our beautiful cabanas while soaking up that Vitamin D. Invite your friends and family over to throw some burgers on our outdoor grills while you catch up. Have a four-legged best friend? Many of our communities have a bark park for your pup to stretch its legs. This is a perfect place for you to meet your fellow pet-loving neighbors.

Enjoy the water

Paddle boarding and kayaking are perfect activities to do this spring! If you are lucky enough to live at Camden Preserve or Camden Bay – you have quick and easy access to the water!

  • Camden Bay is surrounded by a 1,000-acre nature preserve and is located on a canal that leads into Tampa Bay. With a boat and kayak launch inside the community, you will be enjoying the water and scenery in no time.

  • Camden Preserve is in the heart of South Tampa, with direct access to the water of Tampa Bay. Take a stroll through the mangroves on our new boardwalk leading to our kayak launch. You can even paddle over to Picnic Island and lay on the sandy white beaches!
