Oceanfront RV Resorts in North Florida
From Fernandina Beach across the Georgia border in the east to Destin in the west, North Florida is a large land mass. Visitors traveling to the area by RV will have a difficult time deciding which oceanfront or Gulf beach RV park to choose, with white sandy beaches off the Emerald Coast and the relaxing waves of the First Coast. The activities throughout North Florida's beaches are also plentiful, with everything from surfing and bodyboarding to scuba diving and deep-sea fishing. Miami RV has narrowed down a few favorites which we hope you enjoy. Fernandina Beach/Amelia Island In Fernandina Beach, just across the Georgia border, you will find Fort Clinch State Park providing the only camping grounds in the area. Fort Clinch has two campgrounds, one of which provides oceanfront camping on 21 full-hookup sites. While there, you can take part in a number of outdoor activities to keep you moving and active.
