The RV parks in Florida are by far the most popular in the nation for folks looking to make camp in the wintertime. Snowbirds, or folks who RV full-time or year-round make their way to America’s warmer spots when autumn falls across the rest of the U.S. Some will head for Arizona, others to South Texas, but most will choose the white sand beaches and warm tropical breezes of the Sunshine State when winter rolls around. There are thousands of well-regarded RV resorts scattered around the state, many are located within Florida’s major cities, and there are dozens of remote RV sites to choose from as well if you fancy a bit more privacy. Some of Florida’s best RV parks are located right on the beach! Imagine drifting off to sleep each night to the tune of the gently lapping waves rolling into shore. Can’t beat that, can you?
Beginning at the southern end of the state, Miami RV parks and campgrounds are great for folks interested in visiting a true tropical climate area. This metro area and the neighboring Everglades to the west of town are squarely located in a tropical climate region where annual temperatures are tempered by the prominence of the ocean. Rarely does it get above 95 degrees in summer, and rarely does it ever freeze in Southern Florida. For folks who prefer a more urban setting, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and Key Largo all have RV resorts that are open year-round and plenty to see and do for urban enthusiasts. If you’re looking to explore this part of Florida’s naturalism, make your way to Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, or to Biscayne National Park. Ever been camping on an island? Florida can make that happen for you and yours, as the Florida Keys have some of the state’s best-loved RV parks.
Florida’s midsection is home to major metro areas like Fort Myers, Cape Coral, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa on the west coast, and of course Orlando in the middle of the state. There are a wide range of RV parks in Central Florida to choose from. Some of the country’s most luxurious RV resorts are in the region, and the many state parks have simple spots for no-frills adventure in the swamps and grasslands of the area. Myakka River State Park and Charlotte Harbor Preserve Park are popular day and weekend trips from Florida’s west coast, while Daytona Beach, Ocala National Forest, and the City of Kissimmee offer folks adventure closer to Orlando.
Northern Florida and the panhandle area are populated by cities like Jacksonville and St. Augustine near the border with Georgia, the Capital city of Tallahassee, and the Emerald Coast resort destinations of Pensacola, Destin, and Panama City out west near Alabama. These areas are also popular with snowbirds but truly comes to life in the summertime, when folks from throughout the country hitch up and haul down to grip their toes in these pristine sand beaches. And there’s plenty to do once you’ve arrived. If you love the outdoors as much as the next camper, make your way to Apalachicola National Forest, Tate’s Hell State Forest, Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve, or to Osceola National Forest.
