Most people don’t even realize that you can stay inside Kings Landing. And, by inside, I mean behind the closed gates of this oasis. You can, and you don’t have to tent it unless your heart is set on camping. Kings Landing has five cabins inside that can be rented. Here are the ten reasons to stay at Kings Landing, Florida.

Stay At Kings Landing

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure and privacy policy for more information.

1. Kayaks and Canoes Are Included in Your Stay

Renting a kayak from Kings Landing costs $59 a day for a single-person kayak. When you rent a cabin, kayaks and canoes are included. Assuming you are not traveling solo, this along is a reason to rent.

Cabin rentals though the week starts at $135 a night! Close enough to the cost of renting kayaks.

2. Avoid The Crowds

Once you are onsite, you don’t have to launch from the central entry canal. You can take off morning or night and have the entire place to yourself.

3. One Day At Kings Landing Is Not Enough

If you want to see it all and do the north and south runs, you need more than one day. Why drive back and forth when you can stay onsite.

4. The Wildlife Comes Out To Play

Once the park is closed, the river slows down. With virtually no kayakers and only locals, you see the wildlife come to life. We got to watch the gators right off of our dock. Look closely, you’ll see him (or her) towards the lily pads.

5. The Cabins Are Adorable

Each cabin is newly renovated, and they are packed with modern amenities. Each cabin has its separate blue glass fireplace and its grill.

6. Fish From The Shore Or Dock

Here’s your chance if you want to fish but not from a kayak. When you stay inside Kings Landing, you have full access to the river so that you can fish all day and night. There’s even a fish feeder to ensure that the fish are there!

7. Invite Your Friends Over

There are restrictions on how many people stay in each cabin, and you have to disclose this when you book. However, you are free to invite your friends, assuming you adhere to the rules and don’t cause a ruckus.

We invited friends over and had dinner on the deck. And we invited the family to kayak with us.

8. You Don’t Need to Pack Coolers

When you stay onsite, you can skip all the cooler packing. Come back and have lunch at the cabin.

9. You Can Hike In The Park

Forget about taking a tour. If you stay onsite, you can hike at will.

10. RV and Trailer Parking Is Allowed On-site

It doesn’t really get any better than this. Suppose you’ve been on the road in your RV for a week or two, and you need a place to stay. Finding a place that has parking for RVs is very difficult. 

About The Cabins At Kings Landing

When you stay at Kings Landing, you have two choices in cabin rentals or tents. The Cabins are inside Kings Landing, and the campground is outside across the street.

Bear Cabin

This is the cabin we stayed in, and boy did we might make the right choice.

Bear Cabin, Turtle Cabin, and Otter Cabin are connected and share the walkways and deck. This is not explained on the website. Fortunately, we were the only guests, so we had the entire place to ourselves. However, it could be a challenge if different groups book all three. You would be sharing an outdoor space.

If you score Bear Cabin, you’ve got the one at the front with the view. Bear cabin sleeps four comfortably.

Turtle Cabin & Otter Cabins

Both are set up and designed the same as Bear Cabin, but they face onto the garden. Vs. the water.

Both Turtle and Otter cabins sleep four people comfortably.

Studio Waterfront Bungalow & Two Bedroom Waterfront Bungalows

Like Bear, Otter, and Turtle, these bungalows share common spaces like the deck and walkways.

The studio sleeps four, and the two-bedroom sleeps six.

Pro Tip: All the cabins are almost $100 per night more on the weekend. If at all possible, stay on weekdays.
