For the ultimate in flexibility, there is nothing to beat camping; either with a tent or with an RV (recreational vehicle). These days more and more sites also offer cabins.

There are hundreds of campsites (campgrounds) across Florida including many within the various [Florida State Parks].


Most Florida State Parks provide camping/RV sites and cabins. They sometimes have what are described as “Primitive Campsites” where is very much “back to nature” and typically there are no bathroom facilities or at best portable toilets.

The State Parks give you access to hiking, biking, canoeing, horse riding and fishing amongst beautiful surroundings.

When checking the price of campgrounds, note that unlike hotels and motels, they typically charge based on two people. You will often have to pay extra if there are more than two adults though children usually go free. Prices also can vary depending upon the length of the RV and whether it has slideouts.

Facilities will vary between campgrounds but most will offer 20/30/50 Amp service, water, electricity and sewerage, paved parking, picnic areas and some even offer cable TV, wireless internet access and swimming pools.

Some sites will also have firepits, BBQ grills and patio furniture.

If you do hire an RV, make sure you understand how everything works and remember that you will typically get around 8–10 mpg so though you will not have to unpack every evening, you will need to fill up more often!
