Free Camping in Florida – The Ultimate Guide -National Parks Service – Part 4

Everglades NP Camping at Flamingo

The National Parks Service (NPS) needs no introduction! With over 130 camping areas to choose from nationwide, families can spend a lifetime exploring the great American outdoors in the NPS.

Unfortunately, there are only a handful of NPS camping opportunities available in Florida.

In this article I cover National Park Service camping in Florida. Please note – NPS camping is NOT FREE. In fact, it is NOT CHEAP either with rates up to $42 (electricity) per site! But National Parks campgrounds are very popular and for this reason I decided to include them in this camping series.

As described in the first article of this series and in the org chart above, there are three National Parks in Florida with drive-up camping facilities.

Dispersed drive-up camping is NOT ALLOWED. You must camp in developed campgrounds as listed below:

The 10 Most Gorgeous Waterfalls in Virginia – Trail Maps and Photos

10 Most Gorgeous Waterfalls in Virginia

A reader bought my book and suggested I compile a list of the 10 most gorgeous waterfalls in Virginia! I should be qualified because over the last few years I hiked to 95+ publicly accessible waterfalls in the Commonwealth of Virginia; I’ve seen most of them if not all!

If you are unfamiliar with VIrginia waterfalls, here is a relaxing video showing about a dozen waterfalls for your inspiration to get out and explore!

The Task

At first, it sounded like an easy task. I sat down, looked at my photos and videos and wrote down my favorites. Unfortunately, I ended up with not 10, but 26 gorgeous waterfalls and unsure about a few more! I was in trouble! It became a much tougher project because there are so many stunning waterfalls to choose from.

Now, several weeks later after some serious internal turmoil, doubts and many changes, I am finally ready to reveal my Top 10 list! But first, let me start with a few disclaimers.

Waterfall Selection Criteria

Any compilation of “best” waterfalls should be read with some scepticism. I’ve see very popular but totally ridiculous lists. Were those written by writers in armchairs depending on Google Searches for their information?

You may disagree with my list, but rest assured I physically hiked to every qualified waterfall shown in my book and on this website! My selection is based on personal experience and not on Photoshopped images of waterfalls from the internet! Let me explain my selection process.

  • Publicly accessible – Virginia has a handful of beautiful waterfalls located on private properties. A few owners allow access when contacted but I decided to exclude those from my research for safety and privacy reasons.
  • Drop Falls versus Cascades – The geography of the Commonwealth (basically the lack of high mountains) is more suited for cascading waterfalls. Think of these as a series of giant steps with water crashing over it. Many are impossible to photograph in whole due to the rough terrain, thick vegetation and sheer height of the cascade. For this reason I prefer waterfalls with larger drop zones -think of these as water tumbling over a cliff.
  • Seasons matter – I compared the waterfalls based on their impact when in full flow. For example, in early Fall most waterfalls in Virginia run almost dry with very weak flow. I suggest you explore my selection in late Winter/early Spring or after sustained periods of heavy rain.
  • Access trails – A few of the waterfalls on my list require serious bushwhacking. Others can be seen from your car as you drive by! I did not consider ease of access as a selection criteria!

Words of Caution

Virginia is a large State with long distances between waterfalls, often requiring driving over curvy backroads in mountainous terrain. It is challenging to photograph every waterfall in full flow especially after or during heavy rain. Do not rush and please drive safe!

When venturing off-trail to visit some of the waterfalls on my list, please prepare yourself using my “Bushwhacking Guide“. It’s rough out there!

Use My Book to Guide You

My book covers all the waterfalls on my list and many more – it is a basically the complete guide to waterfalls in Virginia! You will find photos, maps, directions and profile information of each trail.

The 10 Most Gorgeous Waterfalls in Virginia

Here is my list IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER! It is nearly impossible to rank them!

Just click on each to read more about the location, directions, trail, profile, etc.

NOTE – Some of the articles below describe a series of waterfalls along a creek. I use the number system that’s common in Shenandoah National Park – #1 is closest to the main road, then #2 then #3 and so on.

My particular choices along each creek are:

  • Falls of Big Creek #3
  • Falls of Naked Creek #2
  • Falls of Doyles River #1

The Best Shared Shuttles from Orlando Airport to Port Canaveral – A Comparison

Cortrans Shuttle Van at Orlando Airport

You can join the crowds in large cruiseline buses to the cruise terminal and pay $35 per person or more one-way, or share a shuttle van (8 to 14 passengers) for as little as $14 per person!

In this article I compare a dozen or so companies who offer shared transportation to Port Canaveral. Most use smaller vans, but a few have standard buses thanks to their popularity (eg. GoPort).

If you prefer private transportation, please know most of these companies will happily accommodate you. Just call.

NOTE – The comparison is for a one-way trip for 2 adults between Orlando International Airport (MCO) and the cruise terminals at Port Canaveral. Other itineraries are available (eg. between airport hotels and the Port) but I will cover those in a different article.

Shared Shuttles versus Private Shuttles

A private shuttle is booked for your party ONLY at your convenience in terms of date and time. You will have the while van for yourself. Generally, expect to pay $120 upwards for a private one-way transfer. If you want to pay less, consider a rideshare such as Uber or Lyft.

A shared shuttle to/from Port Canaveral operates on a timetable (perhaps hourly as shown below) on CRUISE DAYS ONLY. If you arrive a day before your cruise just call the company and ask if they have a shared shuttle available to your hotel. They may say yes if there are othedr passengers! Shared shuttles accommodate 8-14 passengers per van. Sometimes more, sometimes less. It depends!

Shared shuttles offer no or little flexibility. For example, if you want to stop somewhere to buy wine you are out of luck unless all others in the van want to do the same! Do not expect special treatment!

Departure Locations

The out-of-town vans and buses depart from MCO parking areas A15 or B15 – generally when the vans are full. Always ask about wait-times before booking so you do not wait a long time. “Generally” loading begins at 9am or later with hourly departures until the last transfer at 1:30pm.

The Shuttle Companies

There are many transportation companies in Orlando and they come and go. The companies listed below are not immune to changes in the cruise industry and the current COVID situation may change the landscape once cruising return in late 2020.

NOTE – Some of these companies may not survive until September 2020 or whenever some normality return. Rates may change too. Please do your own research before booking.

TIP – I suggest to wait until the last moment to book a shuttle in case of cruise delays. The world is upside down right now and you may have a hard time with refunds from these smaller companies in the event of cruise changes.

I have seen all the companies listed below at Port Canaveral myself, so I know they are legit. Reviews are good and I know they try to deliver good service but as always – please do your own research!

Please know a 20% tip is expected for shuttle drivers; budget accordingly and have change available.

If you prefer to save this information, just “save as” the image below, or use the Links to each company’s website in the 2nd table below!

Free Camping in Florida – The Ultimate Guide -US Army Corps of Engineers – Part 3

Ortana South Campground - Source Recreation.gov

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is a large federal provider of outdoor recreation with more than 400 lake and river projects in 43 states! Their campgrounds are extremely popular with campers. Unfortunately, there are only 3 recreation areas in Florida.

In this article I cover Army Corps of Engineers camping in Florida. Please note – USACE camping is NOT FREE. In fact, it is NOT CHEAP either with sites costing $30 and more for electricity and water. But as stated above these campgrounds are beautiful and much loved by campers nationwide. For this reason I decided to include them in this camping series.

Information and Booking

I will soon post a video review of each campground. In the meantime, here are the three best sources of information:

  • USACE Lake Okeechobee – informative website describing the USACE Recreation opportunities at Lake Okeechobee. Here you will find directions and information about facilities and amenities.
  • USACE Lake Okeechobee – The USACE Lake Okeechobee Mission Pages. Detailed background information about the area.
  • Recreation.gov – excellent website with detailed information about the campgrounds including maps and photos. Official booking site for USACE campgrounds.

Port Canaveral Hotels with Park and Cruise Packages

Port Canaveral Hotels Comparison

If you book a cruise from Port Canaveral it is best to fly in at least one day early and overnight near the Port. Fortunately, there are many Port Canaveral hotels with park and cruise packages to consider. You can choose from hotels in Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach and further out in Titusville, Cocoa or Merritt Island. Hotels near Orlando airport are also popular.

In this article I provide an easy-to-use snooze-and-cruise comparison table for local hotels near Port Canaveral. I also provide a link to a local travel agency with excellent cruise packages.

Most cruisers look for one or more of the following when booking a hotel:

  • Breakfast
  • Free and/or safe parking
  • Shuttles to/from the cruise terminals
  • Airport transportation to/from Orlando, Melbourne or Sanford

It is a time-consuming process to contact each hotel and ask about these requirements because their websites are confusing and often inaccurate. I hope the comparison table below will simplify your search!

How to use the Hotel Comparison Table

The table represents hotels in Cape Canaveral (home of Port Canaveral) and Cocoa Beach (next door).

  • Column 1 – Port Shuttle Service – Cost per person in a shared van, one way from hotel to port or back
  • Column 2 – Airport Shuttle – If available, cost per person in a shared van, one way from or to Orlando Airport
  • Column 3 – Hotel parking cost per vehicle per night during your hotel stay (not while cruising)
  • Column 4 – Hotel parking cost per vehicle per day while cruising (if available)
  • Column 5 – Breakfast cost per person (if available)

Blank entries – information is not provided (perhaps the hotel is new or the service is under review). Call the hotel direct to check!

NOTE – Due to Covid-19, hotel services are constantly changing. These tables show normal services. Please call the hotel to check!

Hotel and Transfer Packages offer by a Travel Agency

If you prefer to have someone else take care of your pre-cruise snooze-and-cruise arrangements, look no further than GoPort! Go here to read more about GoPort.

TIP – I think GoPort offers good value for money and will review this company in an upcoming post. However, not all their packages are necessarily cheaper than booking direct with hotels and arranging your own transport. If you are looking to pay the least for your pre-cruise stay, I recommend you do some price research!

PortMiami and Miami Beach Webcams

The Best Webcams near PortMiami

Downtown Miami (and Miami Beach) are wonderful places to visit before or after a cruise.

Fortunately there are several webcams near PortMiami and overlooking Miami Beach for us to enjoy a year-round view of this vibrant city. If you know of other webcams to review please email me!

NOTE – Some webcams do not display on phones. They may require a subscription. This happens because some ads are blocked on phones and the webcam owners are losing revenue. Desktop views are fine.

My PortMiami Webcam Map

Please open my PortMiami map to see the location of each webcam – marked with a green or purple camera icon.

PortMiami Webcams

These are by far the most popular webcams because of the ship interest. My favorite webcams are mounted on top of the Intercontinental Hotel.

Every cruise day you can watch the cruise ships arrive before sunrise and depart between 4pm and 5pm.

Bushnell Shield Series Instant Cabin Tent Set Up

Bushnell Shield Series Tent

In this video I demonstrate how to set or pitch my current camping tent – The Bushnell Instant Cabin Shield Series Tent. I chose this tent for several reasons:

  • Easy set up and take down
  • Light weight
  • Compact packing for easy storage
  • Tall enough (6″ plus) so I can stand inside
  • Large enough for two people and plenty of camping gear
  • Large vestibule (veranda) to enjoy the outdoors
  • Openings for electric cables
  • Opening for a portable air conditioner
  • Affordable

In a future video I will show the take down and packing – often the most challenging part of camping!

A few things to consider

The tent is not perfect! Before setting out to camp, do consider the following:

  • Waterproofing! My tent leaked quite a bit at the seams. I sealed all the seams and sprayed the fly sheet with water-repellant.
  • Close the windows when it rains. The design allows for plenty of airflow and great views but zip the windows closed or you will take in water!
  • A good ground sheet to protect the tent floor which is quite thin.
  • It has little hanging space inside and the design does not allow for hanging heavy items from the center hooks.

Where to Buy

You can order the tent from Amazon.

Planning Tip!

The Port Authority at Port Canaveral publishes a ship schedule valid for about 6 months. The PDF file shows all cruise ships visiting the Port with information such as date, docking terminal, arrival time, departure time, etc.
