4 Amazing Campsites in Florida For You And Your Family; Kampgrounds of America (KOA) and More

People get restless no matter where they’re from, and the best cure is to rent an RV for a week-long getaway with your family. If Florida is where you’re headed, learn about the best campsites in Florida.

  1. Petersburg/ Madeira Beach KOA

KOA campgrounds have over 500 locations nationwide, but this campsite in St. Petersburg is extra special. They offer cabins for families who travel without RV’s, but their sprawling site offers accommodations for campers and RV drivers alike. There are three types of KOA campgrounds to choose from, each servicing a different type of traveler: KOA Journey, KOA Holiday, and KOA Resort. Their campgrounds are anything but traditional—they offer hiking, fishing, swimming pools, climbing walls, mini golf, jumping pillows, and movie nights! It’s endless fun with incredible amenities; it’s the perfect place to spend your family vacation.

  1. Boca Chita Key

As part of the Biscayne National Park, this campsite gets a lot of visitors. Only accessible by boat, the national park boasts coral reefs, mangrove trees, dolphins, and turtles. Sadly, that makes this island not RV friendly, but better for campers traveling light. You can explore the wondrous ecosystem via boat, kayak, or take a guided eco-adventure through the mangroves. However, we will warn you that this campsite is popular amongst young people looking to have a good time. But the view is certainly worth it!

  1. Juniper Springs Recreation area

Juniper Springs resembles a subtropical paradise and has long served as one of the most beloved recreational areas on the East Coast. This complex provides campground sites, picnic areas, swimming pools, and a bathhouse for overnight guests. During the day you can canoe, bird watch, paddle, hike, swim, and snorkel; come the end of the day, you can rest at your campsite in the heart of the forest. There are 78 campsites spread out through the forest complete with grills, campfire rings, hot showers, and flush toilets.

  1. Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

The magic of Disney meets the great outdoors at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Disney World can be overwhelming, so head over to this campsite to experience the most magical place in the world in a more reserved location. With a name like Disney, you can be sure there will be plenty to do and see. They offer onsite recreation, such as archery, horseback riding, canoeing, campfire sing-alongs, horse-drawn carriage rides, and 2 swimming pools—one with a 67-foot long corkscrew waterslide. They also offer restaurants at the site for your convenience and a shuttle service to whisk you away to other Disney restaurants in the area.
