Top 5 Things To Ask At North Florida Campgrounds

By Cathy Mercer

Grab your tent, load up the RV and head out to the great and wild outdoors. Sounds like a wonderful idea until you realize there is no dry ground to pitch your tent, no hook ups for your RV and worse of all no bathrooms or running water. Here are 5 tips on what to look for at North Florida Campgrounds to help you plan the vacation you want.

The type of camping you plan on doing is going to help determine where you stay. For the back to nature experience, National Parks and Indian Reservations have sites available. Often there are basic cabins available for rent or traditional tent sites.

Find out before pitching your tent if there is a maximum number of people allowed and if pets are permitted. Ask if there is a picnic table, running water, and fire ring at your site. Will you be give an easily accessible, level, and cleared spot or will you be off a footpath. Find out if there are showers and bathrooms or if you will be using a porta potty or digging a trench.

Another option when choosing a campground is one close to a theme park or points of interest such as fishing, boating, water skiing, or great hiking trails. Many of these facilities will have activities planned for visitors such as tours and games. A person can also expect to find bicycles and boats for rent, a swimming pool to cool off during the day and a hot tub to warm up in at night.

Housing will vary from simple tents you bring and set up yourself, to deluxe cabins with separate bedrooms, bath, kitchen, and climate control. Also being offered at most sites and growing in popularity are tepees, yurts, tree houses, and even a train caboose for your stay. If you prefer, there will also be simple one or two room cabins with no kitchen or bath.

If planning to stay in your RV, you will need to know if the spots are pull through or back in and make certain the space is large enough for your rig. Also important is finding out if they have sewer and water hookups. You will also want to know about the amp hook ups and what size the patio space is.

A couple of other important things to find out about is if there is a general store on site and if so do they offer fishing licenses, bait, tackle, first aid supplies and groceries. Find out if reservations are required and if there is a requirement for the length of your stay. Certainly, you want to know what the cost is going to be but you also need to know what is included in the fee and what is additional. If you have pets and want to bring them along, make sure the grounds will allow it.

Many people are choosing to spend their vacation getting back to nature. The options vary from a Spartan and basic experience all the way to a lavish stay in a tree house, yurt, wall tent, or train caboose. It is important to research first before making reservations. Use these 5 tips on what to look for at North Florida Campgrounds as a starting point for planning your next vacation.
