The Whitey’s Fish Camp website says, “It’s the place to be since 1963.”

For just over 60 years, what started as a simple fish camp halfway between the communities of Fleming Island and Doctors Inlet on Swimming Pen Creek in Florida has survived and thrived as it expanded, according to JAX TDY.

But the family-owned landmark — a combination waterfront restaurant, boat marina and RV campground on County Road 220 — is now for sale. Co-owner Billy Ham said it’s time to sell the oldest restaurant in Clay County because he, sister Elaine Cassala and brother Luke Lawley just want to retire.

The Colliers real estate listing on the property does not list a price for the sale. The assessed value of the site, according to Clay County Property Appraiser’s Office records, is $1.067 million.

The real estate listing that the almost five-acre site is zoned for “intermediate business/single-family residential. And it says the site would offer the buyer “many revenue sources.” Those include the 9,476-square-foot restaurant with another 7,760 square feet of outdoor seating — room for about 650 patrons.

There’s also a 21-slip docking facility with a boat ramp and bait shop. The RV campground has 40 spaces, along with several ancillary buildings including restrooms, showers and other amenities.
