I have been to your lovely BC a while back visiting Banff and Jasper National Parks or are those in Alberta?
Anyway, we have been camping with our kids since they could crawl and boondocking it many nights along the way. Well we went to a family reunion on my wife's side in southern Ohio and our daughter was 4 months old when we camped in the Monongahelia National Forest at Seneca Rocks in West Virginia in our 4 person Eureka tent. It rained alot, but we had the time of our lives, kind of miss those simple days of camping, new parents and all but I digress.
Florida, well that is my birthplace and spent 38 years there camping throughout the state. Florida's state parks are awesome to say the least and boondocking there is not an issue unless you want to. Florida has Everglades National Park, the Ocala National Forest, the Osceola National Forest and the Appalachicola National Forest, all offer great boondocking camping. I have seen the campgrounds in the Osceola but not stayed there. Perhaps the nicest are in the Ocala with Juniper Springs and Alexander Springs being really great. It is very pretty there with the crystal clear 72 degree spring fed swimming areas. It is also a great place to rent a canoe or bring your own sea kayak to paddle. The rivers are spectacular with their crystal clear waters and the wildlife including alligators.
i dont know of any blogs to send your way, but I can pass on this. Kids are natural explorers of the outdoors and love them. My kids are now almost 10, 12 (he is disabled and blind) and 15 year old daughter going on 25! They all love to camp and my daughter seems to come back to reality when she is outside away from the computer, FB and here social network of friends
. We are a go go and go some more family be it hiking, biking, paddling a kayak or spending the day on our boat. If you have some specific questions about boondocking with the kids I will be happy to give you some tips. If we can boondock with our special needs son, then almost certianly anybody can. If you have more questions about camping in the Sunshine State, PM me and I will share what I can. We head to Florida here in 4 weeks for the kids spring break...camping in our Roo at Blue Spring State Park near Deland and outside of the Orlando area on the mighty St. Johns River...
