Discover Glamping at Florida State Parks
Summer is here, and it’s time for that annual family camping trip. But this year, why not opt for an upgrade?
Instead of settling for a run-of-the-mill trek to the woods with your tent, you can elevate your summer outing to a glamping experience in the Florida State Parks system. “Glamping” is slang for glamorous camping. Trust us—it’s a whole thing!
Because let’s face it, some of us need and love our creature comforts. Prefer charming table lamps to flashlights? We get it. Need a coffee maker and charging station within arm’s reach? Of course you do! Prefer a queen bed to a sleeping bag? We got you.
And then there’s the fact that glamping = air conditioning. Need we say more?
Glamping is a great way to truly relax in the outdoors without sacrificing luxury. You and your family can revel in the fresh air, bird songs and beautiful night skies while enjoying the comforts of home. We even did the research for you—check out these Florida State Parks that offer a range of glamping opportunities:
- Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. Within walking distance of the Gulf of Mexico, this park offers packages that include roomy bell tents, queen beds with fine linens, area rugs, string lights, firewood, kid gear and even a custom charcuterie board.
- Lake Louisa State Park. A 200-square-foot bell tent on the shores of Hammond Lake feels just like home with bath linens, a chandelier, an interior sitting area and room for up to four people. Located in Clermont, Lake Louisa also offers a variety of glamping activities, including guided horseback trail rides and guided Segway tours.
- Hillsborough River State Park. Enjoy a deluxe safari tent with a king bed, two bunk beds, a ceiling fan, mini-fridge and stylish area rugs at this park just minutes from downtown Tampa.
There are many great things about Florida living, and our state parks are one of them! Have fun exploring them this summer and beyond!
