Heads Up!
An two-day investigation and undercover sting operation here at the end of February, 2017 resulted in the arrest of six men for indecent exposure or lewd behavior. Names, photos, and home towns were published.

Heads Up!
Caspersen Beach has become a place for the police to harass innocent people trying to enjoy the beach.

I was sitting on one of the benches on the boardwalk when a cop tried to pick me up to entrap me. He asked, "Dude, do you like to party?". I told him I knew he was a cop, and to move on and leave me alone! He got very defensive. I told him to shut his mouth, and he left. He was driving a gray Chevy Impala unmarked cop car.

So men, use your good judgement. Cops will lie to you to arrest youft instead of doing the job the hard working tax paying citizens of Sarasota County pay them for.

Thanks so much for posting this! I'm adding a "Heads Up" for this because I found news stories about a sting operation and arrests here and at Jelks Preserve back in April:

5 arrested for exposure in undercover sting at beach, park

5 Caspersen Beach, Jelks Preserve Flashers Arrested

Their names and photos were published, ages too. One of them was 84, three were in their 70s. Such a shame the police are entrapping the elderly instead of arresting violent criminals and preventing violent crimes. I've added a page for Jelk's Preserve because guys have been going there and the sting has happened. ~ Editor

I love Caspersen. It is so beautiful there and clean, let's keep it that way.

Be careful because cops are so envious of a normally endowed man, they always tend to try to entrap us normally endowed men. Be wary of your surroundings, especially during the day.

This is still a great place to at least meet men, but we aware that the cops will bait you into making an entrapment move. If it seems too good, it's probably a cop.

Lots of recent arrests by undercover police. Not safe for cruising.

This is a pristine beach, please keep it clean. Excellent place for a walk through the trails, or just sitting on a bench. You can meet a few good men there, so just chat up a conversation. If you hit pay dirt and make a good buddy, then head for the trails. Just be careful.

I was here last week, Tuesday. I met an older man in his 60s there. He was dressed in some shorts and t-shirt, and was very hairy on the legs and arms. Long story short, he was packing a hefty long skin covered pecker. Just be careful, and take it slow.

Casperson Beach is a great place to meet men, but dress appropriately. I mean, wear at least a pair of gym shorts, because they will bust you for nudity. Parking lot is good, trails are good, but be careful because they have been arresting for lewd behavior. Remember, no grabbing the other guy unless you know for sure it's cool.

I couldn't agree more. I even caught a young guy jacking off in the woods along the trail. There's always fun to watch from the boardwalk but the last time I was there the restrooms were closed and they had port-a-johns.

I was in the parking lot a couple weeks ago. One of the surfer boys went in and I followed him. He started changing in there. I think he noticed I as watching him and he started getting hard. I walked towards him and simply said hello and he asked if I wanted to suck him. Did him right there. Nobody came in.


Posted Nov 17 2007:
I agree. I would love to hookup with one of those surfer boys but it's rare. They do change sometimes in the restroom next to the parking lot.


Posted Oct 22 2007:
Still a good place to pick up and meet although the average age is in the fifties. Rarely do you find younger. I only found one this summer. The best part is watching the hot surfer boys from the boardwalk adjust and scratch and kid around with each other!


Posted Aug 19 2005:
I come here several times a week. In the last month I've been sucked three times and have sucked two other guys. It can be a lot of fun at night, too.

I've been here on several occasions, and have seen the police on ATV's.

The beach is patrolled by police.

Plain clothes as well as uniformed police are cruising the wooded areas all along the beach. My roommate was caught and jailed, then received fifty hours of community service.

Undercover cops are driving a gold Pontiac Grand Prix with tinted windows!

Be aware that Casperson Beach, a popular gay cruising area is
being closely watched by local police. Some individuals have begun a campaign to
make some part of Casperson a legal nude beach and are actively forcing arrest upon
themselves in order to push their agenda. Unfortunately, the unadvised are being
caught in some of these arrests as well.
