Campgrounds of Florida from Miami to Georgia

March 2, 2011

“Where are you going to sleep?” is the most common question I get from people who learn about my project. It’s a very good question. There are many sections where I just don’t know where I’ll be sleeping. Here, I’ve collected the coordinates of the campgrounds I know I can access on my way to Georgia.

These coordinates come from the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail charts provided by the Florida Department of Environmental protection ( or for a download of all the charts in pdf form and from the Florida Paddling trail association website (

  1. Zut alors, nous nous sommes manqué de peu. J’étais en Floride (Chocoloskee to Flamingo, Boca Chita, etc.) l’hiver dernier. Par contre j’étais en voile-camping. Il est possible que j’y retourne en mars cette année avec le même voilier et j’aimerais bien vous posez qq questions, si vous êtes disponible.

    Si la voile camping et/ou la construction de voilier vous intéresse, visitez :

    Au plaisir et merci

    • Salut, je vais prochainement écrire 4 articles pour Small Craft Advisor. Alors je lis pas mal d’affaires sur les petits voiliers. Je pense de plus en plus à faire un voyage sur un open deck de moins de 20 pieds. Partir de Floride pour aller à Panama par exemple.
