Florida 2021-22


I'm thinking ahead as I know the FL sites are hard to get. We plan to start FT early summer 2021. We would like to be in So. Florida next winter for 3-4 months. We will (hopefully) have a 43' 5er. I'd be very interested in your recommendations for favorite RV parks!

If you ask me for my recommendation i will say "Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, Santa Rosa Beach"

 I don't know anything about their state parks.  Do they allow long term stays?  That might be something that jcordar2 needs to know.

We will have a 43' unit - I doubt a state park would have room for us. We would be looking at a 4-5 month stay.

Topsail is excellent... it is a state park and has a 14 day limit I think. If you want a site for next winter for 3-4 months south of Tampa and anywhere close to the shore...you are already behind the curve on getting a reservation. Most parks down here look for 6 month reservations now and put anything less on a waiting list...we stayed at Seminole CG in North Fort Myers 8 Winters but it is almost all 5 or 6 monthers as I recall. There will be plenty of spots up near Ocala or in Acadia if you want more south as Ocala doesn’t stay as warm...but then you will be more out in the country where it is an hour drive to get anywhere.

Like everything it depends on your budget.  We've stayed at Cyprus Trail in Fort Myers.  Would winter there if we wanted South Florida.

IMO, forget about the South Florida east coast and we grew up there.  

Neil and Connie's suggestion is good, but limited as to say time allowed.  If you get on it getting something in central Florida is doable and will be less expensive then "true" South Florida.

Cedar Key is really nice is your looking for "old" Florida, close to the Gulf, but not much else.  Really enjoy Cedar Key RV Resort VERY laid back.  Nice and not as expensive.

It will take a couple of years to find your niche in FL.  But as Neil said, warmer and or water = $$$.  Simple as that.

Jane and Frank, it's not going to be any good for long term but as a back up/fill in just in case you manage to get two or three locations for a month here and there, if you can boondock comfortably for a bit, keep the WMA (5 Water Management areas) in your arsenal. They have some really neat free camping for up to 14 days at a time I believe.

Also check out the Wildlife Management Areas as well = free and paid ones.

Just saying as a stop gap fill in maybe for you if needed.

 Many Florida State Parks can accommodate a 43' RV, but most or all do limit stays to 14 days.

I can agree with Cypress Trails in Fort Myers, all sites can handle a 43' unit.
