The Great Outdoors

Camp in a travel trailer near Orlando and make the short drive southwest to the Hilochee Wildlife Management Area where you can hike, cycle, horseback ride, or fish. It encompasses a diversity of habitats that range from upland to wetland environments, supporting both rare and common species such as gopher tortoises, white-tailed deer, and wild turkeys. Follow one of the trails that wind through the Osprey unit of the Hilochee Wildlife Management Area, such as the eight-mile-long route to the Green Swamp or the egret rookery on the shores of Lake Angelina.Or, head southeast to the Lake Marion Creek Wildlife Management Area, which encompasses more than 8,000 acres of hardwood swamp. Hiking trails are accessible from Snell Creek, Horse Creek, and Huckleberry Island, with bicycling permitted on the Huckleberry Island Road. If you’re an angler, you can see what’s biting in Snell Creek while keeping your eyes peeled for white-tailed deer, gopher tortoises, and Florida scrub jays.Orlando campers can also easily access Lake Kissimmee State Park, which sprawls across almost 6,000 acres to the east of Lake Wales. It encompasses floodplain, forest, prairie, and hammock habitats, as well as flatwoods and the waters of Kissimmee, Tiger, and Rosalie lakes. It’s a hub for recreation, including kayaking, fishing, and horseback riding, as well as bird watching to glimpse some of the more than 200 species that have been recorded here. If you want to stretch your legs, there are around 13 miles of hiking trails to explore and a living history site that depicts a cattle camp dating from 1876.

Exploring the Area

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
