Camping at Forever Florida!

Posted by: Forever Florida on 02 May, 2019

Let’s face it, Florida isn’t typically known as an ideal camping destination. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get nostalgic and recreate your best childhood memories of summer camp. Forever Florida has a few camping options that everyone can enjoy, all year round!

Camping for Every Audience

Outdoor camping adventures aren’t just for thrill-seekers. For many people, the best part is the wildlife. Spotting native horses and cracker cattle is just one of the thrills you can experience at Forever Florida. If you decide to go camping at night, it’s a good idea to ride a Trail Buggy Tour throughout the day. This way, you’ll be able to see and hear Florida’s natural wildlife before it gets dark out. Our camping grounds also welcome group and corporate retreats, for those looking to go camping on a larger scale.

If your kids are looking for a camping adventure this summer, then Forever Florida is your answer! Our Camp Illahaw is for children aged nine to 15. Aside from teaching your children valuable life lessons on how to solve problems and be resourceful, campers will also be able to participate in archery, kayaking, arts & crafts, drama, dance, sport, and more.

Different Kinds of Camping

There are as many camping options available these days as there are personal tastes and interests. Whether you prefer roughing it in a tent, a climate-controlled cabin, or bedding down in a bunkhouse, it’s all possible at Forever Florida. Feel like roughing it like a cowboy for a night under the stars? That’s an option at Forever Florida! Do you prefer a luxury camping experience? Forever Florida also has you covered. Campers can enjoy the night in a cabin and relax during their stay. If you have a larger party, maybe a bunkhouse is the right call for you! They can house up to 30 guests.

Packing List for Camping

Like any great adventurer, it’s crucial to keep supplies and resources readily available to you during your camping experience. Here is a packing list of some camping gear you should bring along with you:

  • A few pairs of long pants and some long-sleeved shirts for added protection while horseback riding
  • Comfortable socks and underclothes
  • Close-toed shoes or boots for walking off the beaten path
  • Shorts, t-shirts, a swimsuit, and flip-flops for soaking up the sun
  • Towels for drying off
  • A hat for shade
  • A flashlight
  • Sunscreen and lip balm
  • Insect repellent
  • Toiletries
  • A warm sleeping bag and your favorite pillow
  • Lots of food and water to give you energy and keep you hydrated

It’s not easy planning a camping trip that will accommodate the individual preferences of a large group of people. Even then, making sure you have everything prepared is another hassle in itself. Spend the time to go through all the details of your camping trip to ensure you’ve packed all the right gear.

Best Camping Spot in Florida

There are very few places that can accommodate the different types of camping preferences. However, Forever Florida is one of them. In addition to camping at night, you can wake up and get right back on an adventure, if you so chose to. Ziplining and trail buggy tours are also available at sunset, so you and your loved ones can enjoy the views before beginning your camping experience (call ahead to arrange). So if you’re looking for your next camping spot in Florida that has a little something for everyone, consider Forever Florida and reserve your adventure today!
