How To Choose The Best Central Florida Campgrounds For Your Family
by Christine OKelly

If you've ever been camping, you know it is an exciting activity for the entire family to enjoy. No matter if you're going with just a sibling or if you're traveling with a large group of family members, camping is a great way to socialize as a family. Central Florida campgrounds are definitely some of the best that you'll ever have the opportunity to visit. There are hundreds of campgrounds in the state, so it may be hard to select just one place to hitch your tent, build a fire, and maybe even try out fishing in Central Florida. To choose the campground best for your family, make note of a few things.


When it comes to Central Florida campgrounds, it is always a good idea to find one that is close to exciting attractions, especially if you have young children. To make your trip even more enjoyable and family-friendly, many campers choose premier campgrounds only a few minutes away from Orlando. Some of the best campgrounds you will find in this area are Deer Creek RV Golf & Tennis Resort, Fort Summit KOA and Three World's Properties. By staying at a Central Florida campground close to some of the area's best attractions, you can easily spend a day outside of the camping area enjoying everything the sunshine state has to offer.

If you choose a camping area that isn't near any major attractions, you may find that after a few days younger children will get restless. Although most campgrounds offer outdoor activities, venturing out and touring cities like Orlando is definitely a great way to spend family time.

Outdoor Activities

Of course campgrounds are outdoors, but no one wants to stay at a campground only providing a place to camp at and perhaps a wide-open area to play games. In order to select the best of many area campgrounds, find one that offers a wide variety of outdoor activities like Sanlan RV Park in Lakeland. Family-friendly activities to look for include a pool, hiking trails, and of course, Florida fishing.

Fishing in Central Florida is one of the most enjoyable and family-friendly activities that any campground offers. Not only is it a great pastime, but it's also sure to entertain everyone in your group. One of the most popular campgrounds offering premier Florida fishing opportunities is Grape Hammock Fish Camp in Lake Wales, FL. Most of the fishing areas will require the fish to be put back into the water, so it's important to ask what the campground rules and policies are in advance. In any case, fishing is a great way to relax with the family while still being able to catch some rays, as well as a few fish.


Additionally, you will want one of the Central Florida campgrounds you choose to have daily necessities such as laundry, indoor bathrooms, and maybe even an outdoor grill. These are all important conveniences because even though you will be outside for most of the day, everyone will eventually want to be able to take a comfortable shower and wash their clothing from previous days.

Camping is definitely one of the most memorable vacations you and your family members will ever experience. By finding the perfect campground, you're sure to have a stay packed with fun and excitement.
