How to RV Camp in Florida State Parks
RV camping in state parks is permitted throughout Florida. With over 160 state parks from which to choose, Florida offers RV sites from Pensacola to Key West. Pack your RV and head to a Florida state park to enjoy camping and other outdoor recreational activities. Be sure to check individual district maps for specific park locations and information before heading out.


Difficulty: Easy

Step 1
Choose a Florida state park that permits RV camping such as the Saint Andrews State Park, located 3 miles east of Panama City Beach. The Florida State Parks website offers a comprehensive list of Florida state parks. Check the maximum RV length allowed.
Step 2
Inquire if the park you choose comes complete with connections to water, sewer and electricity. Electricity hook-ups offer a way to recharge RV generator batteries, which can deplete over time.
Step 3
Inquire about other camping facilities and outdoor activities. For example, Blackwater River State Park in Tallahassee provides opportunities for swimming, fishing and paddling. Wekiva Springs State Park in Apopka features 13 miles of trails, which provide opportunities for hiking, cycling and horseback riding.
Step 4
Obtain an outline of the state park so you know in advance where the campsites are located. For example, the campsites in Blackwater River State Park are just a short walk from the river and nature trails. The camp sites in St Andrews State park are on the bay side of the park.
Step 5
Pay the RV camping fee, which can vary considerably depending on the Florida state park you choose.
