Duval County

Duval County can be found in the upper corner of northeastern Florida, whose largest city is Jacksonville. While glamping in Duval County, discover the area’s Timucuan Ecological and Historical Preserve, comprised of over 46,000 acres and housing natural and historic sites, such as the Fort Caroline National Memorial and the Kingsley Plantation. Fort Caroline was the first French colony in the U.S., while the Kingsley Plantation was a former plantation set up in 1765 and whose namesake comes from an early owner of said property. Making your way to Jacksonville, get ready for fun in the sun at Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, and Atlantic Beach—you can go paddle boarding, surfing, fishing, kayaking, and surfing. While luxury camping in Duval County, you’ll find that Jacksonville also has a variety of city, state, and national parks to explore, as well as The Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens, Cattyshack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary, and The Great Florida Birding Trail. Hikers will especially love the Theodore Roosevelt Area’s tranquil trails and the Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park that combines woods and beach together for a varied hiking—or biking—experience.
