Camping next to the Spring

Devil’s Den Spring is a one of a kind spring with diving and snorkeling offered. We camped here and were the only two in the campground since it was summer and their slow season. The bathrooms were clean and showers were available. The store also rented out snorkeling and diving equipment.

Relaxing Camping

The bathrooms and showers were clean. There wasn’t a lot to do in this area, we did try fishing in the lake adjacent to the campground, but didn’t catch anything. The campsites are surrounded by trees and large.

Great Forest/Spring getaway

This campground is in Ocala National Forest, which is always beautiful. The campsites are large, we fit 3 4+ person tents. This was one of the busier places I have camped in Florida. The facilities were clean and provided showers.

Set up for RV camping

Not a bad campground. The sites are gravel driveways that are set up great for RVs but not so great for tents. There are picnic tables and fire pits at the sites.

My Favorite Keys Campground

Long Key campground is positioned right next to US 1 so you can hear traffic throughout the night. This campground offers waterfront campsites that you can paddle from. The views are amazing. This campground was damaged by Irma and hasn’t been open for the last couple years.

Wooded sites

I stayed here for 2 nights in October, during that time it was very cold in the Grand Canyon. This campground didn’t have many people staying in it, so it was very quiet. The bathrooms were close by and there was a laundry facility. There were large deer everywhere.

Wake up to a view

This campground was beautiful, we arrived in the dark and woke up to the best view. Watchman is positioned near the information center. The bathrooms were near by and we were able to easily drive into town for groceries.

Worth the walk

This campground is placed between several waterfalls and along a river in the bottom of the Grand Canyon. The 10 mile hike makes this a campsite that you should stay at for a few days.

Camping in the Middle Keys

Camping on the Bayside in Bahia Honda can get buggy at night, especially if there isn’t a breeze. The sites are a bit small but fit a 4 person tent. The facilities are clean.

Camp near Rock Springs

I was here during the winter so the park was quiet, I’ve heard it can be very busy in the summer. The campsites are big, with tree cover and provide fire rings. Rock Springs is in Kelly Park so you can walk there. We did an 8 mile paddle down to Wekiva Island, which was really relaxing.

Quiet place to stay near the springs

This campground is very close to major Springs such as weeki watchi, three sisters, and homosassa. There is a boat ramp in the campground where you are able to take a short paddle to a spring head. The campsites themselves are large and shaded by nature trees. This campground is also pet friendly.

Always a fun stay

Boyd’s is located on Stock Island which is just 5 miles from Duval Street in Key West. I really enjoy the water front campsites that are offered at Boyds. This campsite also has a pool.

Johnathan Dickinson State Park has it all

There is water access for boating and paddling, mountain bike trails, a nature center, and miles of hiking trail to explore. They are also pet friendly.
