The ultimate camping selection
Camping is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and connect with nature. There are different styles of camping to suit different preferences and needs. In South Florida, you can find a variety of camping options, from beach camping to forest camping, from RV camping to tent camping.
No matter what style of camping you choose, you will need some general gear to prepare and have a successful camping trip.
Beach camping is ideal for those who love the sun, sand and surf. You can pitch your tent on the shore, enjoy the breeze and the sound of the waves, and explore the marine life. Some of the best places for beach camping in South Florida are Bahia Honda State Park, Long Key State Park and John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park
Forest camping is perfect for those who want to immerse themselves in the greenery and wildlife of South Florida. You can set up your camp in the shade of the trees, hike or bike on the trails, and spot birds, deer, alligators and more. Some of the best places for forest camping in South Florida are Ocala National Forest, Faver-Dykes State Park and Jonathan Dickinson State Park
Tent camping is classic for those who want to have a simple and authentic camping experience. You can bring your own tent or rent one at some campgrounds, and sleep under the stars with a sleeping bag and a mat.

Gather firewood. You will need three types of wood: tinder, kindling and firewood. Tinder is any very dry, small material that will catch fire quickly, such as dry leaves, needles or paper. Kindling is small sticks or branches that will burn easily and help ignite the firewood. Firewood is larger pieces of wood that will keep your fire going for a long time. Use only local firewood or dead wood that you find on the ground
Lay your fire. There are different ways to arrange your wood, but one common method is to lay larger pieces of firewood in a cross-hatch pattern, making a small tower. Then, place plenty of tinder and kindling in the gaps between the firewood. You can also add some firestarter, such as paraffin-soaked cotton balls or shredded paper, to help the fire catch
Light the fire. Use a lighter or matches to ignite the tinder and kindling in several places. Blow gently on the flames to help them spread to the firewood. Add more tinder and kindling as needed until the firewood catches fire
Extinguish the campfire. When you are done with your fire, put it out completely by pouring water over it and stirring the ashes with a stick. Make sure there are no glowing embers or hot spots left. If you don’t have water, you can use dirt or sand to smother the fire, but this is less effective and may leave hot coals buried
Clean up the mess. If you built your own fire pit, dismantle it and scatter the rocks and ashes. If you used a designated fire ring, clean out any trash or leftover wood from it. Leave no trace of your fire and restore the site to its natural condition as much as possible
