There is a wild world waiting to be explored beyond Orlando's city limits. The Orlando area is home to some of the most fascinating and diverse species in the world, as well as some of the most breathtaking natural scenery you are ever likely to lay eyes on.
 
 
 
 A great way to experience the natural wonders of Central Florida is to spend a few days camping. Beyond the campgrounds in the urban areas surrounding Orlando's major attractions, there are many more rustic venues to explore. Central Florida is home to many state parks, all of which offer camping opportunities in a natural setting that is otherwise untouched. Additionally, a large number of independent campgrounds dot the landscape of the more rural regions surrounding Orlando. A short trip to any of these sites will take you away from the hectic schedules and long lines and bring you to a more peaceful place. Most of these campsites do not have to deal with the availability issues that those closer to the heart of Orlando must face, but it is still a good idea to check in advance. Additionally, be sure that you have all of the supplies you need to spend a few days in the wilds, as most of these areas are not as close to stores as the sites in the Orlando resort area.

Ready to rough it for a few days? Take a look at this list of campsites outside of the Orlando attractions area to pick the perfect place for your trip.
