Product and Locations Mentions



Florida State parks – You can never go wrong in Florida State Parks.  You can find every type of terrain and adventure from forests to beaches. You should plan to attend a festival or immerse yourself in history at a reenactment.  There is always a state park loaded with hiking, biking, camping (including primitive camping), and paddling. Camping spots with fire rings to complete your perfect camping adventure. There are plenty of picnic tables and spaces.

Bahia Honda State Park in Big Pine Key located in the FLorida Keys. As we know, Florida is loaded with beautiful beaches. But the southernmost tip of Florida is the cream of the crop. Thanks to Henry Flagler’s bold effort to build a railroad to Key West in the early 1900s turned the remote island of Bahia Honda Key into a tropical destination. Here you will find amazing beachside camping, geocaching, star gazing, snorkeling, and even history.

Manatee Springs State Park – Manatee Springs is perfect for tent camping in Northern Florida’s hardwood wetlands. Enjoy the park’s millions of gallons of clear water for boating, scuba diving, miles of nature trails for hiling, and fishing.

Florida Caverns State Park in Marianna you’ll find the only guided tour of dry caves in the state. These spectacular marvels are the main draw to the park but the camping paddling hiking biking and golf (yep there’s even a golf course!) can’t be beat. Bring your own horse – equestrian campsites and stables are available.

Cabana Club Resort Known affectionately as a cruise on land, Cabana Club, offers resort-style camping with tons of amenities for kids and adults alike. This private campground with tins of amenities and one of the best RV parks we have seen.

Hideaway Camping Resort offers old Florida-style camping at Navarre Beach in the panhandle.  The Hideaway Retreat creates an old fashioned experience, how camping used to be.  The Hideaway Retreat is nestled on the beautiful and natural setting of the Santa Rosa Sound. Find the private beach with 371 feet of unspoiled beachfront property for you to relax and explore, as well as kayaks and paddleboards available for you to spend time on the water.

Fort Pickens Campground (talked about national seashore in national park episode) offers an historic area camping. I love dynamic camping. Not all camping has to be beaches and boating, right? HOMESCHOOL MOMENT: There are only 2 campgrounds on the National Seashore, one of which is in Mississippi. Although it does offer the unique historical aspect of camping, you can still explore the beach and dunes. Visit historic Fort Pickens, a military fort that stayed in operation through World War II, but now offers tours and a massive canon.
