A Florida campground has posted a “Camping Tent” ad on Craigslist, hoping to attract campers looking to rent a cabin for the weekend.
A Craigslist ad on the site says that if you want to rent or buy a cabin in Florida for the week, you’ll need to show up in person at the campground and “put your best foot forward.”
The ad’s description reads, “Camp on a campfire and be surrounded by your best friends.”
The Florida campgrounds have been posting camping adverts on Craigslist in recent months.
In 2016, a popular Florida resort in Florida posted an ad on its website for campers to rent out tents in the campsite.
The resort told The Sun Sentinel that the ad was an effort to attract guests to campgrounds.
A few months ago, a Florida camp site posted a camping ad on their Facebook page for camp guests to rent tents in their campsites.
“We have always been the campgrounds that bring the best of the outdoor experience and the best in hospitality to people in the Sunshine State,” the Facebook post read.
“It’s a great way to give back to our community.
This year, we have seen a huge increase in our camper count, so we wanted to help spread the word and show people that we still have lots of fun in our campsites.”
Campgrounds across Florida have posted camping ad ads on Craigslist as part of a push to attract and attract guests.
In August, a group of campers at the popular Lake Isabella resort in Tampa posted a tent rental ad on Facebook, hoping for some visitors to come along for the ride.
The Tampa Bay Times reported that one of the campers who was offered a rental tent, named “Kenny” posted the ad on Twitter on August 5.
The tweet has since been deleted.
The Lake Isanna campground told the Times that “this was just a misunderstanding and we apologize to all those that felt that way,” and added that the camper has since received positive feedback from other campers.
“Everyone was so happy and was surprised to see it,” campground manager Lisa Hays told the Tampa Bay Post.
“I don’t know what to say other than it’s nice to see people come out here and enjoy it.
We really are the best, and we’ve had some really nice camper days here.”
Hays told ABC News that campers are always welcome at the Lake Isella resort.
“There are no rules on what you can and can’t bring into the resort,” she said.
“But we want everyone to feel safe, that we’re all about family, that everybody’s treated well and that we respect the people that come to our campsite.”
The Lake Isellas website for reservations is now down.
