Best Florida RV Camping
These RV camping destinations will give you the opportunity to snorkel among schools of yellowtail snapper in the Keys, walk among a 17th century fortress, fall asleep to the sound of roaring lions, or just chill out on the sand at one of America’s top beaches.
Anastasia State Park, St. Augustine
For Florida RV campers that want to hike or hit the beach, but still have plenty of options for fine dining and shopping nearby, Anastasia State Park in St. Augustine is a good choice. You simply won’t find a better place to set up base camp if you’ve never been to St. Augustine since downtown is just 10 minutes away from the park. You can hit the beach, explore the hiking trails, visit the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States (Castillo de San Marcos), or venture downtown to check out the shops, restaurants, and historical sites.
Bahia Honda State Park, Big Pine Key
If you are looking for some of the best beachside camping in Florida, just head down to mile marker 37 in the Florida Keys. Three camping areas within Bahia Honda State Park offer a total of 80 sites for both tent and RV campers who enjoy outdoor activities like snorkeling, fishing, kayaking or biking. Restrooms and hot showers are easily accessible. Be sure to call (800) 326-3521 to make reservations because the park tends to fill up quickly, particularly during the winter and spring months.
