See a small cabin at the New Florida RV Resort in Margaritaville

If you don’t own an RV but dream of vacationing at an RV resort, now is your chance.

Camp Margaritaville’s newest RV resort location in Auburndale, Florida — about an hour from Orlando — has a collection of 60 on-site cabins to accommodate vacationers who don’t have an RV …

…and they’re the perfect combination for families of a tiny house, an extended-stay hotel, and Airbnb.

Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville currently operates three “casual luxury” Camp Margaritaville locations in Tennessee, Georgia and Florida.

But that could soon change: the hospitality empire wants to open 30 to 50 more RV parks across the United States over the next five years.

The Margaritaville-branded chain is obviously targeting the growing RV market…

…but that doesn’t mean you have to be an RV traveler to experience the Parrothead RV lifestyle.

All three locations have accommodations designed for visitors who do not own a tiny house on wheels.

While the Georgia location has mountain-like cabins and the Tennessee resort has an equally cozy lodge…

…Camp Margaritaville in Auburndale, Florida has tiny tropical homes suited to its warm lakeside location.

If you’ve dreamed of sipping a tropical cocktail while lounging by a lake…

…Camp Margaritaville RV Resort and Cabana Cabins has the amenities you are looking for.

Palm trees around a lawn, deck chairs.

Cabins start at nearly $195 a night. This price includes access to the park’s amenities, including its two swimming pools, dog park, and children’s water play area.

It’s a resort full of activity, but the “cabins” feel like a personal, quiet reprieve from the rest of the property.

The units make up the perimeter of the RV camp, which began welcoming guests in January.

Small palm trees, shrubs, and pebbled parking spots separate the seemingly endless row of 60 neutral-colored cabins.

Each unit comes with a parking space and a picnic table.

Think of cabins as a scaled-down but cozy Airbnb for up to six people.

The living room has large windows, a wall-mounted television, a sofa bed and a narrow table with several seats.

It’s the perfect place to catch up on some reading or enjoy your morning cup of Margaritaville coffee.

Like all mini-houses, the cabins are open plan: the living room opens directly onto the kitchen.

But unlike most small cabins, it’s surprisingly spacious.

A kitchen with cupboards, sink, microwave, stove, oven.


Brittany Chang / Insider


It has all the amenities of a typical home kitchen and is larger than those I’ve seen in NYC apartments.

A kitchen with a coffee machine, cups on a rack, knives and a blender.

There is a microwave, an oven, a hob, a sink, a dishwasher…

… blender, toaster, refrigerator, coffee maker, and all the utensils and cookware needed to cook and serve a full meal.

And we can’t forget the margarita reference in kitchen decor.

It wouldn’t be a vacation cabin without kitschy Marshalls-esque decorations.

A sign that reads "I dream of summers that last forever." above a door.

The cabin does not have a dining table apart from the kitchen island seating.

So, if you’re looking to do some home-cooked meals, you’ll have to enjoy al fresco dining on the outside picnic table.

Back inside, the fridge is located across from the kitchen towards the start of the hallway.
