Camping cabins do not always come to mind as a viable alternative to staying in a motel or hotel.
But they should, because many Florida State Parks have very nice cabin facilities for your camping enjoyment.
They may not be as fancy as most chain motels or hotels, but you can dine in style at local restauants on the money you save.
Twenty Florida State Parks have comping cabins, and they range from rustic to modern.
Enjoy a cabin nestled in the hills of Central Florida where you can lounge by the fireplace.
Kick back and relax on your cabin’s deck in the Florida Keys.
No matter what the destination, staying in a cabin will provide endless opportunities for recreation and relaxation.
Some of these cabins are as well equipped as the average motel room in the outside world. Others are a bit more rustic and primitive.
