There are a lot of great nature spots in Florida where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of big city life. One Florida campground, Camp Chowenwaw Park near Jacksonville, offers a respite from the daily grind. What you'll find hidden in this park is a collection of huge "birdhouse" like treehouses that you can actually camp in.

Called Treehouse Point, this is an area of Camp Chowenwaw that is home to nine treehouses that can sleep up to four people in each house, originally built for The Girl Scout Council Of Duval County.

Eventually, the campground turned into a public park, and Treehouse Point became open for guests to rent overnight.

The nine birdhouse-like treehouses are all screened in and are equipped with four built-in bunk beds.

You won't have anywhere to charge your cellphone within the houses, however, as they don't have electricity.

However, the shared bathhouse on the grounds does have electrical outlets to give your devices a quick charge.

There is also a shared kitchen where you and your squad can eat together, complete with a stove and refrigerator.

Outside of the cabins, there are outdoor grills and picnic tables if you want to get the full experience of eating outside with nature.

There are other camping areas within Camp Chowenwaw Park, some that even have electricity within their cabins.

Treehouse Point is unique in that it'll give you the quintessential experience of sleeping in a huge birdhouse-like treehouse among the forest.
