Camping Cabins. Staying at some of Florida’s State Parks could be as easy as packing a few clothes, some food and your toothbrush. Some camping cabins come equipped with everything else you’ll need down to the linens. However, if you’re traveling with your pet, you’ll want to make other arrangements. Pets are not allowed in the camping cabins. Cabins vary in style from fully-equipped modern cabins to hand-hewn lumber or palm-log retreats, and usually accommodate up to six people. Cabin rentals vary in price from about $30 upwards to $160 per night.
Florida State Parks offer three levels of discounts on annual passes based upon military service. These include:

Full-Facility Camping. Tent, trailer and RV camping is available with a variety of campsite amenities, including electric hook ups, fire rings, picnic tables and water. In addition, comfort stations are provided. Most include flush toilets, hot showers and laundry facilities. Dump stations are provided. Campsites usually allow up to eight people, two tents or one trailer or RV and two vehicles. Campsites range from $18 to $50 per night.
Primitive camping is available in some of Florida’s State Parks. It is usually inaccessible by car, so camping equipment must be carried from a parking area to the campsites. Primitive campsites may include a fire ring and picnic table, but most likely will not include water and electric. These sites are usually very inexpensive — about $4 per person, per night.
