Florida Primitive Camping Clubs

Florida Primitive Camping Clubs
With its miles of coastline, diverse ecosystems, abundance of state parks and forests, and nearly year-round temperate weather, Florida is a popular spot for campers. You can pitch a tent in the Everglades, stay at a campground near Disney World in Orlando or explore the natural beauty of the Keys and camp on the beach. In case you're in the Sunshine State and enjoy primitive camping, several clubs throughout the state plan events and trips.
