Brighton RV Resort

South Florida in July leaves visitors with just one thing on their minds — water play. Whether you want to beat the heat with a refreshing swim, a trip to the beach or casting a line to catch a whopper, there is no shortage of options for splashing around at either Brighton RV Resort or in the surrounding area.

Take Brighton’s recently renovated and expanded swimming pool area. Visitors can cool off with a swim and lounge in the South Florida sunshine, or they can relax with an ice cold beverage under the pool area’s chickee hut. Looking for a little sport while cooling off in the freshwater? Brighton RV Resort sits on the peaceful shores of Lake Okeechobee — the center of freshwater fishing in Glades, Okeechobee, Martin, Palm Beach and Hendry counties — so grab your rod and reel and walk to the end of the resort’s fishing dock or check out the Harney Pond locks for a day of exploration and hunting down a world-class large-mouth, black crappie, bluegill or catfish.

Want to dig your toes in the sand, go wave jumping and enjoy the salty goodness of the Atlantic Ocean instead? Then head over to the East Coast beaches on Florida’s Treasure Coast or even a little further south to Fort Lauderdale and Miami. From St. Lucie County in the north to Dade County in the south, there are five East Coast counties filled with beaches and parks ready and waiting for your day trip from Brighton RV Resort.

Want a chance to tangle with a deep sea monster? Head east or west from Brighton RV Resort, and fishing charters abound with captains more than happy to bend the rod on the Atlantic Ocean’s bounty. The landscape is peppered with a number of boat ramps and marinas for a chance to catch land some of the world’s most sought-after saltwater sport fish. From nearshore fishing on the reefs to bottom-fishing for grouper to hunting down monster marlin, sailfish, dolphinfish and other pelagic species off shore, visitors to Brighton RV Resort will net more than enough filets for the grill while enjoying the tropical breezes and cool sea spray.

South Florida’s natural wonders offer plenty of opportunities to keep cool as well. A trip from Brighton RV Resort to the Everglades National Park — which includes Biscayne National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park on Key Largo, Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge and Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary — opens up visitors to boat rides, tours and backwater fishing.

Don’t forget to pack your bathing suit, hat, umbrella, towel and sunscreen!
