Florida State Parks
State parks often provide the best scenic views, and opportunities for outdoor activities are usually within a short walk or bike ride from your campsite. Many of the State Parks are near bodies of water and provide kayak or canoe rentals for your convenience, and some have bicycle rentals as well. They are sometimes, too, the best value. Here are some details on the State Park campgrounds we have visited with links to our post on the State Park itself. Florida state park campsites book up way in advance, so keep that in mind when planning your travels. Book reservations early.
We will be adding to this list often as we make our way around the state, so check back often.

Johnathan Dickinson State Park – Hobe Sound/Jupiter
Definitely a state park with a ton of outdoor activities available. Great programs for families with young children. Suitable for all-size RV’s with full amenities. Two campsites are available in this huge park. The only downside for me was the openness of the campsite in the front area of the park, meaning not real wooded or shady. The back campsite by the river had more shade trees. However, with all the activities available at this park, the pros outweigh the one con, in my opinion.
Suwannee River State Park Live Oak
Sites with all hookups, water, electricity, and sewer with shower facilities nearby. On the scenic Suwannee River. The rural area of the state and very quiet.
