There's camping under the stars -- and then there is camping under the stars on one of the most beautiful beaches along the gulf coast of Florida. Sarasota County's Turtle Beach Campground on Siesta Key is one of only a handful of spots in Florida where campers can pitch their tents or park their recreational vehicles (RVs) only a few short steps away from the Gulf of Mexico.

"Turtle Beach Campground is incredibly popular with visitors and frequently sold out," said Tricia Wisner of Sarasota County Parks and Recreation. "We wanted to offer Sarasota County residents a special incentive so they can experience this hidden jewel of our parks system."

Now through Aug. 12, Sarasota County residents can stay two consecutive nights for the price of one at Turtle Beach Campground on Siesta Key. In order to be eligible for the buy one, get one free ("BOGO") special, guests must show proof of residency and stay two consecutive nights on the same site.

Turtle Beach Campground can accommodate RVs with full hookups and tent campers, and offers amenities like Wi-Fi, laundry and shower facilities.
