Due to its pleasant weather, Florida is an obvious destination of choice for our RV Lifestyle Fellow Travelers (and us).
Not only does it offer the pleasant weather, it also has some of the best RV parks in the country.
Here are 10 of the best RV parks and campgrounds in the state to check out on your next trip south, per the folks at TripSavvy.com.
10005 Emerald Coast Pkwy W, Miramar Beach, FL 32550
It’s one thing to stay along the spectacular beaches of the Florida Panhandle’s Emerald Coast. It’s another to camp on the beach.
So that’s why we bit the bullet and spent over $200 a night to stay in one of the choice beach spots on Camp Gulf, a very popular private campground in Destin, Florida. I know, I know, that’s a ridiculous amount of money. You can book a beachfront condo or hotel room for the same price. Or less.
But for the money, you get to open your front door every morning to sugar sand beaches and the emerald waters of the gulf coast. Destin is a paradise for those looking to kick back, relax, have a cocktail, or settle in with a good book with their toes in the sand. Relax all day on the beach, or venture into Destin for some fabulous shopping and delicious seafood. Camp Gulf is outfitted with all the amenities you will need, plus two heated pools, a spa, golf cart rental, and even soft serve ice cream.

But Jetty Park offers more than views of rockets launching — you’ll spot cruise ships, submarines, and a host of different marine life along the Atlantic coast. You also get all your creature comforts as well with full amenities, large pavilions, fire pits, and 24-hour gated security.
10359 W Halls River Rd, Homosassa, FL 34448
On-site amenities include food, 30- and 50-amp hookups, laundry, clean showers, basketball, and volleyball courts. Nature’s Resort also has bingo, dances, and potlucks so you can meet your fellow campers.
2644 Happy Camper Pl, Kissimmee, FL 34746
The park has many of the amenities that you would expect from a KOA, such as full hookups, 24-hour laundry, WiFi, sauna, and even a private pool that’s open year-round. This KOA is an excellent stop on the way to Disney and if you’re looking to cut costs on your Disney trip.
12451 SW 184th St, Miami, FL 33177
If you grow tired of exploring the heart of Miami or nearby Everglades National Park, there is plenty to do right at the 270-acre park including fishing or swimming in their pond, jogging or biking along the trails, or taking in a sunset. Leashed pets are OK in the RV camping area.
650 Pecan Park Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32218
Asphalt isn’t Pecan’s only feature, as visitors can pull through the spacious full hook-up sites to enjoy your stay in Jacksonville and enjoy a lunch at your picnic table. There are gas refills, full laundry facilities, and on-site storage. Other features include a pool, clubhouse, outdoor games, planned activities, and even on-site fishing.
12316 Cortez Rd W, Cortez, FL 34215
Take advantage of all the warm weather the gulf has to offer at Buttonwood with kayaking, fresh and saltwater fishing, or taking in the views with a pleasant stroll. If you’re feeling lazy, the resort has horseshoes, a picnic area, and even a library in the clubhouse. Buttonwood also has amenities, such as WiFi, digital TV, full hookups, and is pet-friendly.
6130 Lazy Days Blvd, Seffner, FL 33584
They also take care of you with complimentary WiFi, cable, coffee, and access to the amenities. There are laundry facilities, hot-shower bathrooms, and a long list of activities from basketball to doggie obstacle courses hosted by a full-time activities coordinator. There’s a lot to see in the Tampa Bay area, but you may not be able to leave the park when you stay at Lazydays.
2950 Overseas Hwy, Key West, FL 33040
If you’re ready to take your RV trip as far south as possible, you can stay at welcoming Bluewater Key RV Resort. This is one of the most beautiful resorts on our list, as you’ll be stationed right on the deep blue water of the Keys. Every site is privately owned and landscaped with verdant tropical plants and other shading plants. The sites are large, outfitted with full hookups, and you can choose a spot on the Bay or a canal spot with its private dock.
The resort also comes with a pool, activities park, dog park, bright and clean laundry facilities, propane exchange, on-site trash collection, and much more. If you want to be pampered and genuinely enjoy your time in Key West, head straight to Bluewater Key RV Resort.
1900 E Gulf Beach Dr, St George Island, FL 32328
St. George is a State Park, so there’s plenty of great outdoor amenities including hiking and biking trails, exhibits, and all the on-the-water fun of the St. George Sound. You can’t technically call it a park amenity, but expect a nighttime sky ablaze with stars at this beautiful park.
