Boondocking is what we do best! This is our preferred way to camp, and we have found some amazing, epic places we want to share with you! But we are also members of Boondockers Welcome, Escapees and Thousand Trails. So we’re here to share our tips on all the locations we stay in Florida. We are full-time RV travelers, so we will be updating this blog often! Come back often!
Boondocking / Free Camping
Florida has some pretty epic free camping areas! Yes, I know! Boondocking in Florida is challenging. Reserving your free sites on the WMA websites can be tedious and hard. But Florida has hundreds of amazing boondocking places. They are really scenic, beautiful places! Be patient, and you could land in some of Florida’s most scenic RV spots – FREE!
- Potts Preserve – We stayed about eight days here. Loved it. Quiet, good cell service, and plenty of space for a big rig. GPS location on the photo below.
- Lake Panasoffkee – Another great place. Hint: Reserve the Equestrian area if you’re a big rig. You know you’ll fit if horse trailers can fit. GPS on photo below.
- Dead River Landing – Cell service is limited here, but wow! We ended up reserving this just for the weekend because I work, so I need cell service during the week. Here you are just steps away from a beautiful little river/lake where you can put your kayak in. See more pictures below!
- Bayside – waterfront small beach, amazing sunsets, and great cell service. We were able to stay here for five days. Loved the little beach right behind the RV. GPS on the picture below.
- Goose Pasture Campground – GPS: 30.202837, -83.967889 – Good cell service, and plenty of room.
Since we are very new to Thousand Trails, we have not stayed at any of the Thousand Trails parks yet. Stand by! Our top pics based on recommendations from friends are:
- Space Coast
- Crystal Isles
- Tropical Palms

Thank you for sharing with us! We just moved into a new farmhouse in Florida and one of my dreams now is to go on a road trip with a mobile home, so I saved the article for the future =)
That sounds like heaven!! Enjoy your new farmhouse and touch base with us when you’re ready to explore in your rolling home on wheels. 🙂 We are in year #5 living in our RV and exploring the country. It’s amazing whether you do it part-time or full-time. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Have a wonderful summer!
