Florida theme parks plus convenient, affordable RV camping equals a vacation for the record books! Let’s look at how savvy RV campers can find accommodations close to Florida’s theme park action.
- Silver Springs Nature Park – Silver Springs, FL
Take a ride in a glass bottom boat, hike the nature trails or ride the thrilling Lighthouse at this 350-acre nature park near Ocala. Millions of gallons of artesian spring water pump through the park, creating a marvelous wildlife habitat that also features historic sites and plenty of outdoor adventure. RV parks close by include: The Springs RV Resort and Lake Waldena Resort.
- Busch Gardens – Tampa, FL
An African safari themed park set in sunny Tampa, this Busch Gardens location includes a large zoo, heart-stopping rides and plenty of family centered fun. Plan to camp at Tampa area RV parks like Spanish Main RV Resort to keep your lodging comfortable and convenient.
- Weeki Wachee Springs – Spring Hill, FL
Hoping for an “Old Florida” experience this vacation? Weeki Wachee Springs, 45 minutes north of Tampa, has delighted visitors for more than sixty years. Live ‘mermaids’ perform as you sit in a theater built within the spring itself. There’s also a water park, animal shows and riverboat cruises to keep your RV camping crew entertained. Area RV campgrounds include Belle Parc RV Resort in Brooksville, FL.
- Marineland – St. Augustine, FL
Created in the 1930s as an authentic undersea environment for filming movies, Marineland Dolphin Adventures has grown to be a world class marine education facility. Swimming with the dolphins is just one of the adventures your family can experience while you’re there. Beverly Beach RV Camptown just down the coast features oceanside RV campsites.
- Disney Orlando Theme Parks
We can’t talk about RV camping to Florida theme parks without mentioning Orlando’s Disney attractions. The Disney World umbrella actually covers four theme parks and two waterparks. Play at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom, then cool off at Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon. Check their website for admittance pass packages for even more value. Disney’s Fort Wilderness RV Resort lets you camp on-site in your recreational vehicle.
- Universal Studios Theme Parks – Orlando
Another wildly popular option in Orlando is the Universal Studios trifecta of Universal Studios-Florida, Islands of Adventure and Wet ‘n Wild Waterpark. Park-to-park passes allow you to experience all the TV and movie themed thrill rides, and camping couldn’t be more convenient at Orange Blossom KOA in Apopka, Florida.
- SeaWorld – Orlando
One more place RVers love to visit is Orlando’s SeaWorld, where animal shows, exhibits and rides can fill many happy hours. You might also enjoy a dip with the dolphins at Orlando’s Discovery Dove and a splashing good time at Aquatica Waterpark. Come playwith the porpoises and go home to comfortable camping at parks like Orlando Southeast/Lake Whippoorwill KOA.
RV travelers from all over America come to Florida’s theme parks each year. The convenience and comfort of RV camping and the built-in fun of our theme parks can be the start of your best RV vacation ever.
