Campgrounds in Fla

I went to Fla to see some relatives who took me to several RV camp ground locations. One wasn’t fit for a dog, let alone an RV. One was awesome and another was really nice. There’s still campgrounds that haven’t rebuilt from the hurricanes last year. Charlie did the most damage but Jean was also devastating to a lot of them in the middle of the state. We checked what kinds of RV’s plus what pulls them. I didn’t see anything really big except one Teton and one Challenger. One campground was down a mile and half bumpy road. It wasn't worth it, all rundown and some RV's had been there a long time. I wouldn't feel safe.

Places visited:

*Lake Toho West Lake, nice park on lake, also has quite a few RV’s that were permanent. Has a huge lake with air boat rentals and a restrauant. Long way in to get there but nice once there.

*Canoe Creek – New Creek Rd. Very few 5th wheels, run down with several RV’s broken down. More for those that don’t travel, a permanent campground.

*Boggy Creek, Awesome, has trees with the flowing dropping moss, with a lake

*Wekiwa Springs a state park, $20 a night to stay but I couldn’t check without paying $5

*Wekiva Springs state park, Apopka, run down, huge place lots of sites. wouldn’t want to stay but one or two nights.

Most of the 5th wheels were being pulled with Ford or Chevy 2500, one Teton was with the 3500 Ford. I didn’t see too many vehicles because no one seemed at home at any of the parks.

On the trip back home we stopped at 2 sales places. One had Excel the other had Hitchhiker II. The Hitchhiker was about what we liked, they had the layout that we’ve been looking for on the lot, but it seemed little and not quite the one we would live in for fulltime. The Excel was also on the lot that we liked. It’s perfect, or as close as you can get to being perfect. The under storage was smaller then we hoped and the bedroom doesn’t have a lot of drawers, but maybe we can live with it.
