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.

Admire the early-20th-century buildings that line the streets and hunt for treasures in the antique stores. You can browse the diverse collection of artifacts and artworks at the Polk Museum of Art or witness the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright on the campus of the Florida Southern University. Lakeland is aptly named for the numerous lakes that dot the city, offering plenty of recreational pursuits within the city limits.
