The Top Spots to Set Up Camp

From hiking, biking, and kayaking to flying through the air in hot air balloons, Kissimmee is a treasure trove of outdoor adventures. And if you’re an outdoor enthusiast who likes to venture a little further into the wild to spend time under starry skies, then pack your camping gear as we’re also home to many picture-perfect campgrounds. Let’s take a closer look at a few of our favorite spots to set up camp in our own backyard.

Boggy Creek Resort and RV Park

Located along 100 acres of Lake Tohopekaliga (also known as Lake Toho), Boggy Creek Resort and RV Park is the perfect destination for big bass fishing in the beauty of old Florida. With lake-access boat slips and an impressive marina, it’s easy to get out on the water and start reeling in the catch of the day. Or, if you’d prefer not to work for your dinner—you’re on vacation, after all—make your way to the resort restaurant and bar, where a delicious meal and delightful entertainment is waiting for you.

Are you hearing the call of the wild? Boggy Creek Resort and RV Park is a gateway to exciting airboat rides across the water. If it’s more of a “call of the mild” you’re after, there are numerous walking trails shaded by towering oak trees.

This location offers basic, pull-through, and waterfront RV campsites, as well as comfy cabins if you prefer to sleep indoors. And if you love your creature comforts, they also have special VIP accommodations, complete with beautiful views and lots of space to relax.

Lake Toho RV Resort

Calling all bass masters! On the west side of Lake Toho, you’ll find the Lake Toho RV Resort—as well as some of the biggest bass in the world. In fact, there are more bass over 10 pounds in the Kissimmee chain of lakes (including Lake Toho) than any other lake on Earth. Bring your fishing rod, make your way to the bait-and-tackle shop to get the inside scoop on the best spots to cast your line, and pick up the bait you need to land the big one.

The campsites at Lake Toho RV Resort all feature full RV hookups, so you can stay fully charged while on your outdoor adventure. There are also cabins if you’re more of a glamper than a camper. Best of all, the resort is close to all sorts of exciting local attractions, making it a breeze to experience everything we have to offer here in Kissimmee.

Tropical Palms Resort

The Tropical Palms Resort considers itself a home base for experiencing all things Kissimmee, but we think of it more like a home run! Cute and colorful, the resort offers mini-golf, shuffleboard, bocce ball, swimming, fishing, horseshoes, and more—all set across 69 secluded acres. Plus, you’re only a short walk from attractions like Old Town Kissimmee and Fun Spot, and four miles from Walt Disney World® Resort. You can even purchase theme park tickets directly on-site, so it’s easy to get up and go.

You can stay at the Tropical Palms Resort for a weekend, a month, a season, or beyond, and you’ll always have plenty to do. There are family movie nights, live music, a craft center, and even a volleyball court. The resort is also pet friendly, so if you’re bringing your four-legged friend along for the fun, they’ll be welcomed with open arms (and wagging tails).

Orlando/Kissimmee KOA

Orlando/Kissimmee KOA is the ideal spot to kick back and truly relax on your Kissimmee vacation. Minutes from the major attractions while offering the peace and quiet you want in a camping getaway, this piece of paradise is sure to make you a happy camper.

Enjoy a refreshing dip in the heated pool, or unwind in the relaxing spa. Hit the playground or jump pad for some serious fun, or try a game of basketball or horseshoes.

Are you a biker? Rent a set of wheels and explore the area. Traveling with a furry companion? They’ll make a bee-line for Kamp K9™ Dog Park (there’s also a dog-cleaning station if they have a little too much fun). And when the sun goes down, gather around the fire to roast marshmallows and enjoy the star-filled skies above, as you make memories to last a lifetime.
