This sprawling city in Northeast Florida rarely catches the tourist eye, having Miami and Orlando overshadow the natural paradise that is Jacksonville. Jacksonville, perfectly positioned along the Atlantic Ocean in northeast Florida, is a natural paradise for visitors looking for an affordable yet luxurious destination. Whether you are looking to discover the undiscovered, ignite romance, reconnect with family, or be inspired by the city’s cultural offerings or vivid sunrises, anything is possible in Jacksonville. The "River City by the Sea" boasts more than 20 miles of wide and uncrowded beaches, close to 40 miles of the tranquil Intracoastal Waterway canal, and the longest stretch of the beautiful St. Johns River. On land, Jacksonville is home to the largest urban park system in the nation, with 10 state and national parks. Its authentic cuisine, thriving craft-beer scene and fun and cosmopolitan nightlife make this city a unique destination.

We at Miami RV Rentals scoped out three RV parks that help make your vacation as laid back and fun-filled as possible. Each is in a different location of the city, and each offers something different for each distinctive tourist visiting. Flamingo Lake RV Resort Flamingo Lake RV Resort is the premier RV camping spot for North Florida and Southern Georgia. Covering the entire Flamingo Lake, the resort offers full hook-up sites, yurts and cabins as well as innumerable opportunities for swimming, boating, and other forms of recreation. Flamingo Lake RV Resort opened in 1988 purely as a campground. Over the last 27 years, the Flamingo Resort has expanded to encompass nearly the entire circumference of Flamingo Lake. Gone are the days when a person can camp in a tent. Today Flamingo Lake RV Resort offers more than 250 full hook-up sites for luxurious RV camping, and a handful of yurts and cabins for a more primitive experience. All accompanied by a huge variety of recreation spaces. Guests camp around a 17 acres, spring-fed lake with a lovely beach, access to a pool, and nice walking spaces. They even open the park up to non-resident visitors during the days, giving the park an unusual community feeling.
