Fort clinch state park in Fernanda beach. Sebastian inlet state park south of Melbourne. Jonathan Dickinson state park north of Jupiter. Bahia Honda State park in the upper keys. As you can tell I am a fan of state parks. ��

There is lots to see. Sometimes the areas you just drive by have some hidden treasures.

Oleno State Park in the north is nice too. There is also a park in Collier Co Seminole if Koreshan is booked. If they are full and you are desperate Woodsmoke is a private one and very nice but $$. There is also Turtle Beach county park but hide the dogs. People get by with little dogs there.

That's right. I was just there but not at the campground. Thanks for that.

Stop 3: Fort Desoto County Campground- hard to get but try
http://www.pinellascounty.org/park/camping.htm
Stop 4: Oscar Shearer State Park Sarasota 4 days - Nokomis Beach, Ringling Museum, Casey Key Fish House
Stop 5 Koreshan State Park Fort Myers- shop some, Bonita Beach, Naples, etc.
Stop 6 Everglades a few days.
Stop 7 Keys area.
Some good recommendations there! You'll probably do better at private and county campgrounds than State Parks, they fill up fast.

If you can't get a spot in Stephen Foster, try Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. That place rarely fills up, unless there's a music festival going on.

We just got back from Chassahowitzka River Campground (near Crystal River), very nice, lots of room there.

Koreshan has been closed since April for renovations.

Reserve America is worth checking. In our area of Florida (Indian River County) I would recommend Sebastian Inlet State Park. It's on the island and although the campsites are not ocean view, it's a short walk from them to the boardwalk.

There are also some county parks such as Brevard County's Long Point and Jetty Park campgrounds. Worth checking. Most county parks are not listed in Reserve America. Many are in AllStays.

Comment on one earlier suggestion... I believe Koreshan State Park's campground is closed for renovation until spring. Again, Reserve America would be the source to consult.

Good luck, seriously. I just spent the better part of this AM scouring Reserve America & FL camp books & still not able to reserve some of the places we'd like to camp at down here in Oct/Nov. Many Halloween events & things like Food & Wine festivals going on since the weather isn't so hot & humidity is slightly better now. Just don't get discouraged.

I am at Gamble Rogers right now, site 23 Oceanside. Everything is up and running except the beach is closed -- allegedly opening tomorrow. Lots of empty sites last night...

By all means, get the AllStays app - the best $10 you will ever spend.

We like Tokoma State Park in Ormond Beach. Try Blue Springs State Park by Deland.

The Ocala National Forest campgrounds never seem crowded and are a bargain.

Use Allstays to check out the county parks. These fly under the radar.

When you get near the Fort Lauderdale area, location is the key!! Its not fancy up front but in the rear, you can park waterside with an 80' yacht directly on the New River and canals. YachtHaven RV Park and Marina is just off I-95 at the Marina Mile exit just north of the Ft. Lauderdale airport. They have short term stay spots for now but will fill up in November with Canadians.

As of tonight, there are 3 Airstreams in the park. 2 motorhomes and 1 new Classic trailer.

Well after a couple of overnight Walmart stays in OH and SC on Fri/Sat night, we finally made it to Florida.

Thanks for the recommendation.....I tied Anastasia State Park one last time after they were previously booked and what do you know they had a site come open. We are here until Wed night and will then be moving to the Melbourne area.

Try Hanna Park near Jacksonville. We enjoyed there last winter.

Another vote for the Allstays app.
