Camping on the Intra Coastal in Florida


Camping on the east coast of the intra coastal in Central Florida is a lot of fun. You can camp for free at different islands on the intra coastal. It is easy to get to them whether you have a boat or a kayak. There are plenty of rental places for both. There are places called spoil islands and some you have to pay a fee at. I believe it is $15 per night. The camp sites are kept up by the state. There are numbers on the islands and you find the number of the island you want and pay the state. It is a great time. I have pictures on here of when I went out the other day (11-16 to 11-17). This island isn’t an island you have to pay for. It is first come, first serve. During the week there are hardly anyone ever on the islands camping.


You camp right on the water. It is breezy over on the coast in the winter time. I camped here in November and the daytime temperature was mid 80s and at night it was low 70s. Winds were about 15 MPH which are pretty fast. It is hard to fish in that wind and also a bumpy boat ride because of the waves.

This is the 2nd time I have camped on the intra coastal and I hope to camp many more times. If you live in Florida or visit and have a boat or a kayak I would say give it a try. Make sure you bring plenty of water and sunscreen. You can always have too much water but if you run out you are in trouble. Now I leave you with a nice intra coastal sunrise….



About Nick

I am currently a fireman in Central Florida on the east coast. I have a lot of time off due to my work schedule and I fish every chance I get. I own a Gheenoe boat and fish Mosquito Lagoon area. I do not have a fishing business yet but that is my goal sometime in the near future. I hope to upgrade my boat to a flats boat soon. For now I just share my knowledge of fishing and pictures of the Intra Coastal in Florida. Thanks for checking out my site.
