Florida is one of the most diverse states when it comes to RV owner destinations. Whether you prefer the tropical beauty of Gulf Coast beaches or you’d like to get back to nature near marshes and caves, Florida can accommodate you, your family, and your RV.

1. Florida Caverns State Park in Marianna, FL

For a truly unique inland experience, the Florida Caverns State Park is the only park in Florida that features dry caves and offers tours of these subterranean chambers to the public. If touring the dark spaces under the earth’s surface isn’t your thing, explore some of the park’s open-air activities. The river that winds through the park creates a popular retreat for fishing, canoeing, and boating, while the spring provides the opportunity to take a cool dip. Other activities available at the park include horseback riding (for campers with their own horses), golfing, and hiking. RV travelers can make reservations at one of the park’s 30 sites throughout the year.

2. The Great Outdoors RV Resort in Titusville, FL

This riverside RV resort creates a secluded home for nature on the east coast of Florida. Bring your pole and a generous supply of lures if you enjoy saltwater and freshwater fishing. Spend a long morning hiking nature trails, then devote the afternoon to sports like golf and tennis. There are also interior spaces for lounging, exercising, and getting creative with arts and crafts. The resort is open daily and reduces their rates during the off-season (May through October).

3. Myakka River State Park in Sarasota, FL

Three camping areas at this RV campground contain nearly 100 campsites, each of which provide a fire ring, electricity service, and water. Explore the campground’s primitive marshland on foot or by bicycle or take a kayak out onto the lake. Check-in for camping starts at 3 p.m. and the park closes at sunset.

4. Bluewater Key RV Resort in Key West, FL

Key West is known for year-round beauty. Staying at Bluewater Key is a unique experience because it’s one of the few non-profit RV parks. The privately-owned RV sites sit directly on one of three bodies of water: the ocean, canal, or pool. You’ll feel like you’ve stumbled into an island paradise with your RV parked by your own personal tiki hut, which includes tables and benches. The resort’s website keeps visitors updated on pricing and availability.

5. Cedar Key RV Resort in Cedar Key, FL

This resort is known for providing luxurious surroundings in a quiet, isolated spot on Florida’s west coast. It boasts high-end amenities like a pool, a clubhouse with a kitchen, and a dog park just for campers. You’ll also be within a few minutes’ drive if the island of Cedar Key, which is surrounded by beaches and stippled with palm trees, making it the perfect spot for a saltwater fisherman.

Plan your next trip with your family to any one of these Florida RV hotspots and you won’t be disappointed. There is something for everyone, young and old, whether you prefer nature or luxury or a hodgepodge of both.
