We stayed at South Tampa RV Resort in Ruskin last month. It is ultra-clean with newly renovated bathhouse and pool. The lots are small and nothing special (except for the few overlooking the Little Manatee River) but it is a safe, central location with full hookups.

Best spots on FL left coast?

Kayaking? On the Peace River is nice. Wildlife was plentiful in March when we went- moccasins and gators. We put in just north of Arcadia to follow the current down to the Campsite launch area. We stayed at the peace river campground. Not on the coast but could be a stop. There is a pool laundry and lots of activities there for local events. It is part of that Thousand Trails RV club if you belong. I don't but stayed there anyway. The Myakka River park is one of the highest rated in FL Koreshan is nice but reserve early.

Lewster already mentioned it but Lover's Key is a very popular place to Kayak. There are all kinds of winding water ways and the sound and then of course the Gulf itself all right there. Your camping would have to be elsewhere and I do not care for the beach itself but kayaking there is great. Shelling is popular in the mud flats at the bridge too. You could set up camp off US 41 at several campgrounds- Koreshan is one and then drive to the kayaking adventure about 20-30 min. Lover's Key boat ramp does not require entry to the beach or park. It is on the left of the road heading south. That is an option. Another option would be venturing around Sanibel Island, the area between Fort Myers Beach and all that in distance from Red Coconut or the place on Sanibel. Pine Island Sound is wide open and the barrier islands would be interesting toward the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River.

1st post here. I'm trying to upload pic of my barn find AS. We live in Marshall, MI and heading to South Haven for a week on the beach at Kal-Haven campground. We also have plans to camp in South Florida. Does anybody know if there are any places in Ft. Lauderdale? Looking to walk to the beach but doubtful.

Jazgrass - If you're thinking of heading south after Christmas, you better check for open sites NOW, It may be too late. State Parks open reservations 12 months out, and many fill in first several days. Most Winter-Spring sites are long gone.

My favorite place in FL right now is my driveway and front yard here in Largo FL. It comes with a full hook up and the camp hosts are pretty nice people as well as very reasonable rates.

Thanks to you all for the awesome replies!! Lot's of options to choose from - sounds like we'll just have to start working our way through the list Will report back after our August trip. This coming weekend is Beverly Beach just north of Flagler, an excellent beach front spot and also a dog friendly beach. Appreciate all of the ideas!

What happened? We had everything prepared for you including the fire ring. I hope you realize there is a no notice cancellation fee.
