With so many amazing bucket list-worthy places in Florida, it's hard to pick which spots you want to hit first! We've got another one to add to your list now with one of the most amazing camping experiences in an incredible Amazon rainforest-like getaway. After a day of paddling through lush, vibrant forests on the King's Landing River Run, you can camp for just $24 at the Wekiwa Springs State Park.
The river run adventure is the ultimate connection with nature, with several different ways to enjoy the water. For four hours, you can rent a two- or three-seater canoe for $59, a one-person kayak for $49 or a two-person kayak for $69.
There's no telling what you could end up seeing on your adventure, so keep an eye out for deer, otters, bears and plenty of turtles!
There are several different routes to take, including Emerald Cut, which is around a 2-mile paddle upstream, and the 8.5-mile trip down the Rock Springs Run, which has a return shuttle back to King's Landing.
You can also partake in a three-hour guided kayak tour down a natural lazy river to explore the sights of central Florida for $69.
Although King's Landing doesn't currently offer camping, there are tons of gorgeous campsites at three different sites in the area for only $24.
These campsites are run by the Wekiwa Springs State Park, so you can book your reservation online with them.
Thankfully, King's Landing does offer overnight canoe rentals for $79, plus your shuttle return for the following day.
