Chokoloksee Island Park
Just north of Everglades National Park, Chokoloksee Island's 19 tree-shaded RV sites just a couple minutes' walk from Chokoloksee Bay, within its larger trailer rental community. All sites come with electrical, water, sewage and cable TV hook-ups. Pets are permitted in the park but must be kept leashed, and fires are banned outside of the charcoal grills. The park has its own marina and boat ramp, and fishing is a major area activity, with the local catch including tarpon, catfish, snapper, bass blacktip sharks and a variety of other freshwater and saltwater fish. For more outdoor adventure, across the street from the park entrance is a shop renting kayaks and canoes.
Turtle Beach Campground
Operated by Sarasota County, this 14-acre campground has 2,600 feet of beach frontage. The beach derives its name from its role as a turtle nesting area. The campground's 40 sites are arranged in lanes, surrounded by panel fencing, shrubs and trees on three sides for privacy, and open to both tents and RVs. Hook-ups for electricity and cable TV are available, and free Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the campground. Reservations are available for out-of-county residents up to six months in advance. No pets are permitted, no campfires are allowed outside of the charcoal grills, and only one vehicle is permitted per site. The campground has a boat ramp with access to the Turtle Beach Lagoon, piers for both small boat tie-up and fishing, and is only a few minutes walk to the sea.
Ho-Hum RV Park
Set between Tallahassee and Panama City, the Ho-Hum RV Park is a Good Sam RV Club member. The park offers two types of sandy campsites, all with full hook-ups. The former have plenty of tree shade and are just a few minutes' walk from the beach, while the latter have no shade but are set right by the beach. The RV park is serviced by its own fishing pier, free Wi-Fi internet and a coin laundry.
Navarre Beach Campground
Each of the 185 campsites at Navarre Beach Campground has full hook-ups with free cable TV, and some have their own patios and picnic tables. The campground has its own beach and fishing pier on Santa Rosa Sound, and comes equipped with an outdoor swimming pool, a hot tub, a playground, sporting courts, a game room, coin laundries and bathhouses. Located 24 miles east of Pensacola, the campground was a 2009 winner of Good Sam RV Club's Award of Excellence. In addition to its own outdoor activities and other beaches on nearby barrier islands, Navarre's proximity to Pensacola makes it a good base for scuba diving the artificial reef-wreck of the aircraft carrier USS Oriskany, the biggest artificial reef-wreck in the world.
