The state of Florida is a favorite among RV travelers, and it isn’t hard to understand why. Snowbirds flock to The Sunshine State in the winter months, and many full-time RVers choose Florida as their domicile state because of the legal perks like no income tax. Regardless of what brings you to Florida, there are plenty of RV parks to choose from for your stay. We’ve narrowed down the list to a few of our favorites that will give you a true Sunshine State experience.
Disney and Florida are synonymous with each other. But did you know the world-famous theme park welcomes RV travelers? Disney’s many resorts each follow a certain theme, so it’s fitting that its Fort Wilderness Resort, themed around the American frontier, accommodates those who want to be as close to the outdoors as possible with RV campsites. There are 4 different types of campsites that each have water, cable and electrical hookups, along with a picnic table and a charcoal grill. You can also find sites that provide a sewer hook-up and allow pets. The resort boasts 750 acres of pine and cypress forest along with a community pool and waterslide, as well as recreational activities like horseback riding and canoeing. Whether you’re camping with the kids or a lifelong Disney fanatic, there’s no better place to RV and enjoy all that Mickey Mouse has to offer.
Have you ever dreamed of an entire island made specifically for RVers? That’s what you’ll find at Fiesta Key RV Resort in the Florida Keys. This spot made our list of the 7 Best RV Parks for Your Next RVing Vacation, so of course, it makes our list of the top RV parks in Florida. There are plenty of waterfront sites on this 28-acre resort, plus a marina, a swimming pool, and a tiki bar-restaurant. In case you get bored of soaking up the sun, the resort provides plenty of activities as well, including snorkeling, fishing, basketball and volleyball courts, and scheduled entertainment.
Sticking with the Florida Keys, if you drive around 30 miles south of Fiesta Key, you’ll find Bahia Honda State Park. This park is home to arguably one of the best beaches in the Florida Keys. It’s known for the iconic abandoned railway bridge to the island built by Henry Flagler. Enjoy the historic views on Bahia Honda State Park’s pristine beach while you stay at one of their 80 campsites. Take a kayak tour of the island, go snorkeling, or rent beach equipment so you can relax all day. There’s also a gift shop and a snack bar on site. Be sure to plan ahead though as spots at Bahia Honda fill up fast.
You knew about the theme parks and the beaches, but did you know Florida is home to hundreds of beautiful freshwater springs? Juniper Springs is among the best of them, with its crystal clear blue waters that stay cool year-round in the Florida heat. There are 78 sites in the campground here, and while you won’t find full hookups, you will find hot showers and toilets on-site, as well as supreme views and plenty of water activities. Rent canoes or kayaks to paddle the 7-mile Juniper Run, or go for a swim in the community swimming area. You’re stationed right along the famous Florida Trail and about an hour from Ormond Beach.
When it comes to RV parks with unique attractions, it doesn’t get much more unique than Lion Country Safari KOA in West Palm Beach. This KOA campground is right next to a local theme park that houses over 1000 animals from monkeys to flamingoes to giraffes. If you’re lucky, you may even wake up to the sound of lions roaring! Spend the night at one of the RV sites complete with wifi, a community pool, and a dog park, and then spend your days exploring Lion Country Safari’s drive-through wildlife preserves or its walkthrough safari. It’s fun the whole family can enjoy!
