Daytona Beach, Florida, Area RV Parks

Picture of RVs in Daytona Beach, Florida

Florida has long been a favorite destination for RVers. Daytona Beach is specially prized for its long, white sand beaches, wonderful weather, NASCAR and the Daytona International Speedway, and big motorcycle events like Bikeweek.

RFT editor Bobbie Hasselbring talked with a number of RVers, including fulltimers, part-timers, and weekenders, and this is what they had to say about why they come to the Daytona Beach area:

  • John and Becky Johnson, fulltimers for 12 years, from Jupiter, FL, drive a 43’ Monaco Executive: “We’re New Age gypsies who love the RV lifestyle. We really like the restaurant and shopping here in Daytona.”
  • Tom Bartholomew is an aspiring fulltimer (house is for sale) from San Dusky, OH, who drives a 40’ Winn Tour: “We like Daytona in the wintertime. We’re big into NASCAR and motorcycles. Daytona has all the things a big city has without the traffic and it’s more economical than more southern parts of Florida.”
  • Elise Robichaud and her husband, who drive a 35’ Coachman, are six-month snowbirds from New Brunswick, Canada: “To me, Daytona Beach is almost a perfect place. The traffic is light, it’s easy to get around, and the beach is wonderful.”
  • Mark Zdunek, a fulltimer for the past 6 years, drives a 38’ Gulfstream Pusher: “I like NASCAR and I come for the races. I really like Daytona because it’s quieter than most coastal cities.”
  • Diane and Dave Buker, are aspiring fulltimers (their house is also for sale) from Massachusetts: “I love the warmth, the sunshine, the palm trees, and the quiet here.”

Many RV parks in the Daytona area feature swimming pools.

In the Daytona Beach area, there is only one oceanside RV park, Seaside Park Campground. However, many RV parks are close to the beach and feature plenty of shade from the tropical sun.
