With trying times upon us, and each state is unique in terms of open campgrounds, here are five of the best campgrounds in Florida for social distancing.
Best campgrounds in northwest Florida for social distancing
Charm, beaches, and warm hospitality await your arrival in Northwest Florida. Navarre Beach Camping Resort in Navarre has full hookup sites, and many of these sites are located on the waterfront or close to a view of the water. The sites, since they are surrounded by water, will help you maintain safe social distance from other campground guests.
Pick up some groceries, souvenirs, or supplies for your RV at the camp store or take Fluffy for a walk at the dog walk. The beach area may not be open because of the coronavirus restrictions; however, Navarre Beach Camping Resort is open and ready to assist you with social distancing, all while providing fantastic views as you enjoy a relaxing camping adventure.
Are you looking for beaches with sandy shorelines that look and feel like sugar while you practice your social distancing? Then look no further than Camp Gulf in Destin. Grab up a beachfront site and tell your friends that you will be living by the ocean for a while. While these lovely sites offer that splendid view for all hours of the day, be aware that there are no sewer hookups, and your dog can’t be with you on the beach because of county health codes.
Do not worry, though. With three additional site sections to pick from, you and Fido will have a fantastic time enjoying social distancing in the Florida sunshine! Pick up some ice cream, individually wrapped, and then head off for a stroll around the casting lake. If you still crave sunshine, rent a paddleboard for a solitary cruise on the ocean. Camp Gulf commits to your safety and provides a safe and sanitary RV resort located in one of Destin’s best campgrounds.
Best campgrounds in north Florida perfect for social distancing
Don’t forget to pack your binoculars in your RV as you head off to social distance at Lake City Campground, as bird watching is a favorite pastime here. Birdwatching requires silence and an element of hiding. It’s the perfect time to start a new wildlife hobby!
If birding isn’t for you, throw on your hiking boots and hit the trail behind the back pond. Along your hike, you might catch a glimpse of a turtle just hanging out on a log catching some rays.
All of the RV sites at Lake City Campground offer full hookups, and you will have the option to choose 30-or 50-amp services. Each campsite provides RV guests with a picnic table and a fire pit, so you can stay close to your rig and maintain an adequate social distance from your neighbor. This park accepts walk-in registration, or you may call ahead for reservations.
Best campgrounds in central Florida perfect for social distancing
With 300 full-hookup sites offering 50-amp electrical service, your Tampa social distancing outdoor adventure will have you feeling right at home as you enjoy the comforts of your RV. Lazydays RV Resort has campsites that can accommodate rigs between 38-feet up to 45-feet long. For those campers with a motorhome, the park has on-site propane delivery brought directly to your campsite. Avoiding a propane fill up at the station is a great way to add social distance to your routine. Ask the campground about the current cost of propane and the fill-up fee.
LazyDays RV Resorts wants you to bring your pet along! Fluffy will enjoy being able to run off his leash at this beautiful resort. Should your pooch need more fun in the sun, check out the obstacle course for dogs. A playground and park also await the kiddos. As always, keep a safe distance away from all park guests, and bring the kids to the playground when fewer than five people are playing.
Do you want more time away from others? After a day of travel, why not hit up one of the restaurants for some to-go food and retreat to your RV while you enjoy a Florida sunset with your meal.
Should you need any supplies or work completed on your RV during your social distance camp out, schedule an appointment at one of the Nation’s Largest RV Service Centers, Lazydays RV.
Best campgrounds in south Florida Camping perfect for social distancing
With a 120-foot max length RV limit, cable TV, Wi-Fi, 50-amp electrical hookups, a dog park, gorgeous Florida sunrises, and fresh smelling ocean air, Fort Pierce Downtown KOA Journey is a dreamer’s paradise.
This campground is billed as the smallest KOA in the country. A small KOA means fewer guests. Fewer guests means more distance from people. Fort Pierce Downtown KOA Journey is about a mile away from the Fort Pierce downtown area, should you need to venture out for a to-go dinner to enjoy back at your rig. The park is also minutes away from the Atlantic Ocean, so that solitary stroll along the boardwalk that you are craving is within reach.
These five best campgrounds in Florida offer social distancing amenities for everyone. From a large RV resort to a small cozy campground, the sky’s the limit, so bring your Airstream, Winnebago Mini, or even your rented Class A, and have a great time getting back to your favorite pastime while implementing a new social norm.
