Florida Airstreamers weekday camping vs. weekends

Would like to see a place for Florida Airstreamers to be able to post, similar to the Ohio Airstreamers, but for weekdays rather than weekends as cg are usually booked Friday and Sat. Posting camping destinations on shorter notice without planning a formal rally and its requirements. Reserveamerica makes it easy to see availability up to a couple days before deciding to go. Here in Central Florida many state, county, private parks to choose from and if you like boondocking we even have many places that are free but the first come basis might be a problem once snowbirds arrive.

Really - booked on weekends? Thankfully I didn't encounter that last year - but then again, I didn't stray too far from home. I'd like to consider camping ANY-DAY. Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to get away during the week very often. But I'll check out any future posts to see what's up!

Does everybody do long term planning or with the ease of hooking up can they just decide to go?
What percent of those camping are retired? We do have a higher percent of retirees than most of the north.
I do know our road congestion shows when the snowbirds are back.
My trip north showed cg's filled on weekends while empty on weekdays, verifying Reserveamerica's calendar.

Both!!! We've been planning our Thanksgiving campout for a couple months now - but mostly because it includes coordinating several families who are not necessarily "campers". But if my weekend calendar is still open in a couple weeks, I'll take off for a local campground. It'll be a working weekend (i.e. fixing some stuff on the trailer) but I'd rather do it while at a river-side campground than in my driveway!!!

I haven't noticed any particular types of campers at the parks around here - seems like a good mix of age groups.
