Pull-through and back-in RV campgrounds with communal areas, wifi connections, electrical hookups, and dump stations are abundant in the area, while tent camping is also available with amenities like fire rings.

Where to go

Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park

Only a 15-minute drive from New Port Richey’s city center, Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park offers 8,300 acres of multi-use trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Spend the day fishing in the Anclote and Pithlachascotee Rivers, or head to the Starkey Environmental Education Center to learn about the area’s natural habitats. Stay right in the park, and rent a cabin or pitch a tent at a primitive campsite equipped with picnic tables and firepits.

Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve

Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve encompasses 110,000 acres of wetlands that are home to native carnivorous plants. It’s a popular spot for viewing local wildlife like armadillos and black bears, as well. Campers flock to Green Swamp for hiking, horseback riding, non-motorized boating, and hunting. RV campsites with dump stations and electrical hookups are available at Colt Creek State Park within the preserve. There are also primitive campsites and equestrian campsites with spaces for horse trailers.

Tampa

For urban activities and traditional Cuban sandwiches, head south to the area surrounding the city of Tampa. In town, campers can feel the energy while shopping, sipping cocktails at a rooftop bar, or laughing at a comedy club, but for a bit of nature, snag a spot at one of the many pet-friendly RV campgrounds nearby with pools, wifi connections, and full-service hookups. Then, head to Fort De Soto Beach for some more dog-friendly fun in the sun. (Clearwater Beach’s sandy shores are dog-free if that’s preferred.) Drive-in equestrian campgrounds are also popular and come equipped with picnic tables and fire rings.
