10 Pet-Friendly RV Parks In Florida
Florida is a haven for RVers and their furry friends. While not all parks in the Sunshine State welcome pets, there’s a growing number of spots that not only allow but cater to animal companions. These parks understand that for many, pets are a part of the family.
As such, they’ve adapted to include a range of pet-friendly features, from secure fencing to recreational spaces just for dogs. Some even offer luxury amenities like dog spas. Let’s dive into ten of the best pet-friendly RV parks that Florida has to offer.
1. Orlando Southwest KOA Holiday
This popular KOA resort is a paradise for pet owners, with specialized amenities such as Paw Pens—shaded enclosures where pets can enjoy the outdoors safely—and an off-leash area designed for dogs to exercise and socialize.
The human-friendly facilities are just as thoughtful, with full hook-up sites that feature a personal brick patio and comfy Adirondack chairs. The park’s location also means guests are never far from a refreshing dip in the pool.
“Highly recommend! Our experience with this KOA was great from reservation to checkout. EVERYTHING was clean, the staff was polite and helpful, and the site was monitored constantly. We felt very safe. I wish all KOAs were this nice. Now for the technicalities. We stayed at a site next to the pool. We have a 40′ 5th wheel and fit easily with room to spare on all sides The electric, water, and cable tv are located in the center of the site while the sewer was near the back. Our site was well covered with gravel, had a picnic table that looked practically brand new, and was situated on a paved pad with a fire pit. The trees are well-trimmed (no low-hanging limbs) and the grounds are well-maintained. All of which made it easy to get in and out. We camped at Orlando Southwest KOA Holiday in a Fifth Wheel.”– via Bruce70 on RV LIFE Campgrounds
2. St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA Holiday
St. Petersburg/Madeira Beach KOA Holiday is designed for both pet and owner enjoyment. The park provides dedicated spaces for pets, including Paw Pens and access to scenic walks.

3. Stagecoach RV Park, St. Augustine
Stagecoach RV Park in St. Augustine prides itself on spacious sites set amongst mature trees, offering a serene camping experience. The RV park may lack a pool, but it compensates with a variety of other leisure options.

“We stayed at this campground years ago, and I had forgotten what it even looked like! Very easy to make reservations, and at check-in their staff was friendly and efficient. Everything was well maintained.– via Vicki K on RV LIFE Campgrounds
The hook ups are at the very rear end of the pull through site. Everything, worked well, even used their cable, as with all the trees we had no satellite signal. Good water pressure.
We didn’t use their wifi. Speed reflects mobile internet speeds.
The wonderful lady in the office, helped me get in touch with an RV tech, who also happened to be in the park at the time repairing someone else’s RV. We would stay here again, without hesitation.
We camped at Stagecoach RV Park in a Motorhome.”
