Tallahassee, Florida Campgrounds

Tallahassee, Florida Campgrounds
Football games and politics aren't the only reason to visit Tallahassee, the capital of Florida. Natural, cultural and historic attractions dot the city landscape, and the surrounding countryside has been extensively protected by local, state and federal authorities. Tallahassee's hilly and wooded terrain separates it from most of the rest of the state.

Apalachicola National Forest

The largest national forest in Florida stretches southwest from Tallahassee where more than a half-million acres of rivers, sinkholes, wetlands and savannas wait to be explored. Hikers can spend days wandering the 67 miles of the Florida National Scenic Trail that traverses the Apalachicola National Forest. In addition to hiking and camping, the forest offers opportunities for boaters, cyclists, anglers and kayakers. There are even areas for horseback riding and 56 miles of all-terrain vehicle trails in these woodlands. Back-country camping is permitted throughout the forest, in addition to a number of developed campgrounds along the creeks and rivers suitable for RV and tent use. The developed campgrounds range from no hookups to water and electric hookups with hot showers and restrooms.

Maclay Gardens State Park and Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological State Park. To the west of the park, the conservation areas surrounding Lake Talquin allow hiking, fishing, biking and kayaking while the nearby Apalachicola National Forest increases the outdoor opportunities. On-site amenities at Big Oak RV Park include restrooms, showers and laundry facilities.

Tallahassee RV Park

East of Tallahassee near Interstate 10, Tallahassee RV Park offers pull-thru, full-hookup sites. Outside the park, guests can venture to the many county and state parks in the Tallahassee area, such as J.R. Alford Greenway, a Leon County park, where 800 acres of open land is available for mountain bikers, hikers and equestrians. Civil War enthusiasts may venture south to Natural Bridge Historic State Park, where in March 1865, volunteers from Tallahassee repelled the Union's attempt to capture the state capital. Park amenities include a pool, Wi-Fi, horseshoe pits, showers, recreation roo, and laundry facilities. Pets are permitted with restrictions.
