South Florida has plenty of CG's I don't know about this year with the economy but you used to have reservations well in advance.

South Texas has plenty of CG's and is a LOT less expensive than FL.

If distance is no problem you could go to AZ, Phoenix area will be in the 90's by March.

Google "weather in Charleston, SC". Looks pretty nice there...

South FL (can't vouch for the north part of the state) is still rediculously hot this time of the year in my personal experience only. Google Miami, FL to see what's happening there.

Annette, I've spent a lot of time at Fort Desoto Park in St. Petersburg Florida - lovely peninsula of land projecting into the Gulf. It's typically not so hot and humid in Feb - usual highs in the mid-70s. (I used to travel to St. Pete for work every winter - tough life.)

They have a rather nice looking campground with lots of waterfront sites; never camped there, but will someday.

Tom

I can vouch for central FL and it is 50 50 for spring or winter here in Feb but our winters are mild compared to anywhere above the penninsula, including the panhandle.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Come to the Florida Panhandle. The weather is good in February. The beaches are much better than the Peninsular. The campgrounds are not slammed with snowbirds.

There are some really great campgrounds in the Panhandle, both State Park and private. Many of the Florida State Parks in the Panhandle have recently added sewer drops at the campsites.

Several of these State Parks are directly on the ocean.

Oh jeez, my apologies, I missed reading the "in Feb." part of your post.

Yes, Feb and March are the Best times in about anywhere in Florida. No small coincidence that a zillion families head there in March every year!

We rented a beach cottage on Dauphin Island, AL, a few years ago in February, and had a wonderful mild week, enjoying Bellingrath Gardens, taking a river tour with dinner and dancing, days and days of sand and sun, seafood and gumbo in Bayou la Batre, trips to Mobile and Ocean Springs...great fun. However, since then, the island has suffered hurricane damage, especially the west end where many cottages are found. Might be worth some investigation though. The island does have a campground with easy path access to the Fort, water front-beaches, Audubon sanctuary, and Marine Center so staying with the Airstream is logical. Lots of biking all over the island can be done. When we go back, we'll camp instead of doing the beach house. ~G

Here's a site that's worth consulting for annual weather patterns of US cities:

IDcide - Local Information Data Server

Click on "weather" and enter your city...

If beaches are appealing to you

I would recommend boondocking on the sand at Padre Island National Seashore. There is plenty of info about doing this in a number of threads.
