I just made three weeks of reservations at some FL State Parks.
TJ Stone near Port St Joe
Collier Seminole
Rainbow Springs
The parks are all quite full and only have scattered available dates if you have a larger unit.
Juniper Run has no hookups but is a lovely NF Recreation area campground. It has quite a few vacancies for Feb.

We needed blocks of three to four days and I think tomorrow reserving would have been too late

Both well used. Now up to 250 nights camping and 70,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

Personally I prefer being near the water when I'm in Florida. Those are the areas that tend to fill up first. We prefer the Gulf to the Atlantic. Some years its quite warm (80's) and we can actually head into the water, other years its cooler (upper 60's and 70's) and we just lounge in the sand. Anywhere in Florida in the winter is better than being in Maryland, in my opinion. I imagine you feel the same being from Minneapolis!


Obviously the further south you go, the warmer it gets, but even the panhandle is relatively warm in the winter. Of course don't forget the Keys, Miami, Daytona, St Augustine and everything else on the Atlantic side. Lots of places to enjoy.



You're probably too late for this winter, unless you want to call and hope for cancellations. The place we stay at is SUPER busy. We lost our spot when our son was born almost 4 years ago and finally made it to the top of the list again for this winter. We hope not to lose our spot again!!!

There are county campgrounds. Like Shell Mound near Cedar Key.
I don’t know of a statewide database of county campgrounds

Paradise Oaks Bushnell FL

We spent 2 winters in Paradise Oaks RV Resort. It is a very nice park - clean, plenty activities, close to fun places, easy access, friendly owners and campers. There is not much for kids to do there, so I would classify it as an adult (50+) destination. Highly recommended.

Being a year round resident of Florida, I can tell you that for us it seems like everything is filled during the winter months! Very hard for us to find places to camp in our own state, especially State Parks, unless you find cancellations right when they cancel!

We checked around too and most places are already booked. Especially near the coast. This will be our 4 th trip and stay more north but even those places are getting full. We book ahead of time

You might consider checking in the so. central area of Florida. We managed to get a site in a nice park in Wauchula, FL for the month of February 2018 while just driving through the area last December. Saw it, liked it, snagged it and it was about 1 1/2 hours drive to either coast. Cost wasn't bad either.

If you have a Senior National Park Pass, camping is 50% off. Most folks think it's only good at National Parks.

Senior Pass is good at any Federally funded campground.. COE or NPS or National Forest. 50 percent off.

But not for FL State parks alas
