Summer is not the best season for camping in Florida — but if you do, there are a few things you should consider to make you camping experience a little more comfortable.
DAYTONA BEACH — Tiger Bay State Forest is a vast wilderness quite close to Daytona Beach International Speedway, and it’s a great destination for camping, fishing, off-road bike riding, hiking and horseback riding.
Faver-Dykes State Park offers excellent access to the Pellicer Creek Paddling Trail, productive fishing and woodsy camping for small RV’s and tent campers. Just 15 miles from St. Augustine, the park is a gateway to history.
Over the past year, Florida Rambler has taken you to a great many authentic Florida destinations. Our favorites are Apopka, Everglades City, the Lower Keys, Punta Gorda and the back roads near Daytona Beach — all offering outdoor recreation opportunities of the first degree.
A seemingly endless hike deep into the Everglades awaits you along the levee on the southern boundary of the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge..
Exploring Florida sometimes requires more than just a sense of adventure and the time to travel. These guides are essential tools to help you find paddling and hiking trails, campgrounds and where to experience the authentic Florida.
EVERGLADES CITY — One of my favorite Florida getaways is to boat out to the outer islands and camp for a weekend on a remote, pristine beach fronting the Gulf of Mexico.
After crossing the state line, you likely have many miles to your RV’s winter haven. Take a breather and lay over a night or two in one of these scenic state parks along the I-95 and I-75 corridors.
Here’s an interesting stop far off the beaten path: The Jacaranda Hotel opened in 1926 and has been providing comfy rooms and good food ever since. It’s located in the historic district of Avon Park, a little town in the middle of the state’s cattle and orange-grove country.
