8 Great Reasons to Stay at Camp Margaritaville Auburndale • McCool Travel


Camp Margaritaville Auburndale is a fun, family-friendly, luxury RV resort and cabin oasis located in Central Florida next to Lake Myrtle. Formerly called Cabana Club RV Resort, the 66-acre property was rebranded Camp Margaritaville Auburndale RV Resort and Cabana Cabins in January 2022.

Here are eight great reasons to reawaken your inner Parrothead and stay at Camp Margaritaville Auburndale RV Resort.

Parrothead Vibes at Camp Margaritaville Auburndale

Just imagine tailgating before a Jimmy Buffett concert and re-create that License to Chill vibe at Camp Margaritaville RV Resort in Auburndale, Florida. More than just a space for RVs, this resort property has a large tiki bar, fire pits, waterpark, mini golf course, and much more. But the overall theme is definitely Margaritaville and it is always 5 O’Clock Somewhere when you are here.

Luxury RV Park

Camp Margaritaville RV Resort Auburndale has almost 200 RV sites. That means a whole lot of parrothead funness. Each oversized RV pad offers plenty of space for hookups and slide outs, and features a charcoal grill, picnic table, fire pit, full hookups (including wifi and cable TV), and 50/30/20 amp breakers. There are pull through and back in spaces so reserve the best one for your rig.

Premium Motorhome Suites

Eleven super premium RV sites are perfect for motorhome owners wanting to kick up their Margaritaville experience a notch. These elevated sites are lakeside and each provides a dedicated private tiki hut (fun!) with upscale Kamado Joe grill and outside kitchen, outdoor television (greta for the big game or streaming a Jimmy Buffett concert), a spacious hammock, Adirondack chairs, picnic tables, fun hookups (electric, water, sewer, tv, internet), and more.

These Camp Margaritaville Auburndale premium suite sites have 100/50/30 amp service and do not allow 5th wheel, towable campers, or travel trailers.

Cabana Cabins at Camp Margaritaville Auburndale

There are 60 cozy cabins at Camp Margaritaville Auburndale. Each Cabana Cabin has their own stone patio, picnic table, charcoal grill, patio deck (with overhead ceiling fan and two Adirondack chairs).

Each Cabana Cabin is equipped with a full kitchen with plenty of cookware, dishes, glasses, and silverware—and a blender, of course! All cabins include all linens, all you need is your toothbrush! Each Camp Margaritaville cabin has a king bed and queen sofa bed. Configurations vary—some include bunk beds, others have one small bed—and can accommodate four to six persons. Some Cabana Cabins are no pets and some are pet friendly.

The Cabana Cabins line the outside of the current developed portion of the property. Bring friends and rent two or more cabins in a row. Or rent a cabin and meet friends staying in their motorhome. We saw both of these setups during our visit.

Camp Margaritaville can even be convenient for a larger group. We saw a visiting sports team staying in several of the cabins then meeting in the morning and departing in several large vans.

Convenient Central Florida Location

Camp Margaritaville RV Resort in Auburndale is close to major theme parks and other Central Florida attractions. It is less than 10 miles to I-4 about an hour drive from Orlando and Tampa. Just outside the front entrance is the TECO trail, which extends 6.5 miles north to Polk City. There you can connect to the 26-mile Van Fleet State Trail for a longer bicycle ride.
