Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Orlando/Kissimmee Workamping October through January

If you have workamped in the Orlando/Lissimee area this message is for you.

Where did you workamp?

How was the experience?

Would you go back and do it again?

I am open to comments and suggestions anyone may have for us regarding workamping in this area. Our kids are wanting to spend Thanksgiving or Christmas at Disney. We just want to be near by where they are.

Some like to work at Disney; MGM Studios; and you could also go to RV Park reviews and do some cold calling. Pieere

Do you already have leads on a workamping position in the area?

There aren't that many campgrounds in the area, and they tend to be booked up for the winter well in advance. And I would imagine the few workamping positions available are highly coveted by returning seasonal folks.

As far as the area itself... not amongst my favorites. We've been bouncing around the area since November due to my father's health, and the traffic here is just miserable. But hey, if its where you want to be.. cool. The weather over the winter is pretty awesome, and there are some cool things here. Just my blood pressure goes up every time I need to run errands dealing with the traffic.

Hi There...We have done some workamping in that area.  We workamped at Lake Louisa State Park in Clermont, FL.  This park is only about 8 yrs old and has very nice facilities.  We were camp hosts. We worked in exchange for a FHU site.  There are several state parks in the Central Florida area. Lake Louisa isn't too far from Disney World, stores, Celebration Hospital.  There is info on the Florida State Park website. Click on volunteer, then scroll down to campground hosts.
