With nothing but blue skies and pleasant temperatures in our forecast, it is prime time to step outside and take advantage of the supreme parks and campgrounds Florida has to offer. You don’t have to stray too far from home to find yourself camping on palm tree-lined sites alongside the Gulf of Mexico, where sun, sand and evenings under the stars are closer than you might think.
Turtle Beach Campground, located on the southern end of Siesta Key, offers visitors a tropical camping experience that is unlike any other campground in the area. Here, campers enjoy the world-famous white sands of Siesta Key and natural tranquil beauty of this quieter end of the island. Superior sunsets captivate and perform a ballad of spectacular color and timing as appreciative onlookers say farewell to the day in awe. Nature’s melodic tones made by the surf and gently swaying palm trees provide nice background music for your camping experience.
And that’s just the beginning of the many perks you’ll find while camping at Turtle Beach Campground. The park offers 40 RV and tent sites adorning either side of a lane that leads to the beach and to the Gulf of Mexico. You are immediately struck by the close proximity that the campsites have to the beach. Palm trees and shrubbery provide privacy and shade, and each site is supplied with electric hookups. The park offers Wi-Fi, laundry facilities, clean restrooms and showers, picnic area with grills, horseshoe pits and some of the finest beachfront in the world. The park is attended during the day and they sell a small selection of t-shirts and park memorabilia in the office. A playground, volleyball court, and a canoe and kayak launch can be found next door at the Turtle Beach Park, along with adequate parking.
After an easy check-in to camp paradise, the sky is the limit on how you might spend your day! Rest assured, you can spend the most exciting day of your life on Siesta Key or just rest your feet on soft pillows of shimmering sands just seconds from your campsite, it’s up to you. Nearby Siesta Key Village offers a great mix of restaurants and nightlife options, along with quirky souvenir shops that provide a great afternoon of window shopping and sightseeing. If you’re in the mood for some water therapy, just about every water sport you might want is available including, boating, jet skiing, paddleboarding, canoeing and kayaking. And don’t forget to spend at least part of the day frolicking in the clear blue-green waters in front of Turtle Beach Campground, where a day at the beach leads to a night spent at one of the most tropical campgrounds in Florida.
