Florida

Hi guys,
Any tips/suggestions on a nice place to stay for two weeks to a month in Florida?

My father loves Gulf Coast Camping RV Resort in Bonita Spring FL. It's just south of Fort Meyers and below the "tropic line" so you generally have mild weather all winter.

Thank you Mets721 I'll check it out. I've vacationed in Florida many times but never in an RV.

Big Cypress RV close to lake O near Clewiston. Stayed there about 6 years ago in a truck camper. How far south do you want to go and what time of the year. We moved from Florida in June. Lots of great campsites in the Panhandle

Hey Ron,
Good question. We live in upstate NY where the winters suck the life out of you. The plan is to do a month in Jan or Feb to get out of the cold. I hear the further south the better so I'm open to all suggestions.
Thanks.
Terry

There's a KOA near Kennedy Space center that has lots of family oriented things to do. West Palm Beach KOA is close to Lion country safarai. Any of the state parks in the Keys are great, they book up fast. On the gulf close to Ft. Myers KOA has a campgound on Pine Island. Good luck I know you will enjoy Florida in Jan or Feb...

Thanks again Ron!
Are reservations a must? We would like to just head out with nothing planned and see where we end up. On the other hand don't want to be stranded with no place to stay.

Anywhere on the Gulf is beautiful. My suggestion would be to start in the panhandle near Pensacola and stay for a week, then head down closer to Tallahassee area and stay a week, then head down towards Tampa for a week, then Naples.


The water is beautiful and warm year round (especially the further south you get. There is a lot of unique culture and foods in each of those areas.

Spoon059 nailed it about Pensacola. Several campgrounds to choose from. Fort Pickens campground borders the Pensacola Pass and has great fishing from the bank. Gulf Pines campground is right off I-10 in Milton. Navarre Beach campground is very nice. If you decide to stay close to Disney around Orlando, you will probably need reservations. Lots of great places to camp in Florida..Good luck and post lots of pictures. Ron
