Any of the State Parks, if you can get a site, are reasonable. So is Ft. DeSoto Park in St. Petersburg. But you might want to define what reasonable and interesting means to you.

Most of FL state parks charge about $20-25 per day. This includes electricity, water and dump station use. Wifi is usually available. As in all US state parks the length of stay is limited to 2 weeks.

Thanks for the suggestions. I now I have to reserve ahead for the State Parks and I have already picked up book from the Florida Welcome Center.

Also there are many county parks and state forests that have camping, (usually for less cost than at the state parks). Here in the Panhandle is the Blackwater River State Forest that has several wonderful campgrounds - they don't take reservations and there is usually no problem getting a place during the week.

If you are military or DOD (retired or active), there is the Blue Angel Recreation Area, located right on Perdido Bay. It's beautiful, has very nice facilities, and is very reasonably priced.

Try St. George Island State Park near to Apalachicola. Best oysters in the world and the best sea shell collecting. Also great boondocking sites in the Apalachicola National forest. Bring kayaks or canoe. Great birding, gators, and other wildlife. Nearby Tate's Hell is great too. Great shops and restaurants in Apalachicola too. Have fun and great trip. Joe

The Highlands Hammock State Park, near Sebring is where the annual ScampCamp is held each February. They do a fun tram tour of the park with wildlife viewing including 'gaters

If I were going to Florida, I'd spend a couple of nights (at least) at the Long Pine Key national forest CG in the Everglades. (FGRV member Hidalga is CG host there on weekends.) $16 per night, plus a $10 entrance fee good for 7 days in the Everglades. From there, you could take a day trip toward Key West.

Any of the NF CGs will have lower camping fees than the state parks, along with less amenities of course.
