One of the advantages of an RV vacation is having everything at your fingertips, such as a place to stay, somewhere to eat, and plenty of activities to occupy your time. St. George Island Campground offers all of these and much more. This RV campground is part of the larger St. George Island State Park; it offers restrooms with showers and large sites with water and electric hookups, picnic tables, and grills. The park has a dump station where you can empty your tanks, and you can make reservations several months in advance to guarantee your spot will be there when it's time. Once you're settled in, there are lots of attractions and activities within the park to occupy your time, such as swimming and sunbathing, canoeing and kayaking, and stargazing, just to name a few.Farther out from the RV park, there are adventure tour companies that offer fishing expeditions and have canoes and kayaks for rent. The island has a lighthouse that was built in 1833 and has been reconstructed several times; it has a gift shop, and you can climb the stairs to enjoy the view from the top. The lighthouse is open year-round on weekdays from early morning or noon until dinnertime (you should check ahead to confirm the days and times). Apalachicola Bay has an aquatic preserve comprised of seagrass beds and mollusk reefs; the preserve hosts a variety of sea life such as blue crab and gray snapper and migratory birds that rest and forage here. Remember to take some photos of your rental RV while you're in the area, using this idyllic setting as a backdrop.

RV rentals in Franklin County are your best choice for securing the RV rental that perfectly suits your needs. Start your vacation by pointing it towards Tate's Hell State Forest, a huge and singular tract of land that was formerly intended to be used for pine timber production. During its transformation to pine forest, numerous roads were built along with other constructions allowing increased public access. Today the park consists of wet prairie, swamp, wet flatwoods, and bottomland forest, just to name a few ecosystems. The park is home to a number of rare plant and wildlife species such as the bald eagle, gopher tortoise, and Florida black bear. During your visit, you can enjoy boating and canoeing the many miles of rivers and streams in the park, fishing (a license is required), and picnicking at one of the many day-use areas.Box-R Wildlife Management Area was once a private hunting ground that has been restructured into a multi-use environment that still offers hunting opportunities. It is comprised of tidal marshes, floodplain swamps, hammocks, and pine uplands, with the Apalachicola and Jackson rivers flowing through and emptying into Apalachicola Bay. Timber management (thinning and reforestation) is conducted, and the forest is home to deer, turkey, quail, and other wildlife species. You can come here to hike and mountain bike the extensive network of roads, canoe or kayak in the rivers, or enjoy fishing on the river or from the riverbanks. Park your campervan rental nearby, and you can use it as a nature or photography blind while enjoying a hot meal and a beverage.Apalachicola River Wildlife and Environmental Area is a multi-use area where you can enjoy fishing, hunting, and other activities. The park has several different habitats; marshes and floodplain forests are connected to the river, providing an environment for sport and commercial fish populations, while food plots are managed to provide for the deer and small game that populate the area.

On your way back to St. George Island Campground from your day's activities, you should take some time to stop and see some of the urban attractions on hand.

Eastpoint has a varied selection of restaurants with Mexican and Italian cuisines on hand, but the area is famous for its oysters. One of the seafood restaurants has outdoor seating and a menu that includes fish and shrimp as well as oysters; if you dine here, ask about the seafood platter.Port St. Joe has attractions that are both historical as well as aesthetic and pleasing to the eye.
