Campers Displaced by Hurricane Irma

For those visitors that are seeking refuge at our campsites due to evacuation orders or storm impacts to their home, we will be honoring FREE camping on a day-by-day basis at specific parks. We will be constantly reassessing the situation and will continue to accommodate those as long as possible. The following parks are available for camping, if space allows:

Additional Resources

While we are unable to extend the free camping to private campgrounds, however visitors may be interested in finding a location close to state parks that offer recreational opportunities. We have identified some sites that are helping in finding open campground facilities:

Long-Term Campers – Displaced by Hurricane Irma

For those campers that are in need of long-term campsites, Missouri State Parks has graciously extended their campgrounds to Floridians that have been displaced by Hurricane Irma.  If visitors choose to camp at a Missouri State Park, they will be asked to show their driver’s license to park staff, indicating they are Florida residents, and let staff know they have been impacted by Hurricane Irma. At that time, normal camping fees will be waived or a refund will be given if the campers have arrived after booking an advanced reservation. Florida residents will be allowed to stay up to 30 days in their campgrounds; longer stays will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. For more information, such as advanced reservations, click here.
