How to Do Florida: Take Your Teenager Backpack Camping

    By How to Do Florida

    Come along with How to Do Florida host Chad Crawford as he takes his teenage daughter Casey on an Ocala National Forest adventure and pick up some tips for backpack camping in the Florida wilds. This is something you and your family can do year-round — although be prepared for the heat in the summers — in park areas across the state. Once you get your equipment (a tent, sleeping bags, food, water, hiking gear, etc.), don't expect to pay much in out-of-pocket costs. This visit to Ocala National Forest was free; some parks may offer activities for a fee.
