I totally agree with OBX - it will be about a 4 hour detour off of 95 but well worth it if you have the time. We have been going down there one or two weeks a year for over 20 years and LOVE it.

Also if you do head down 95 from NJ and want to do the DC thing Pohick Bay Regional Park in Lorton, VA is a very nice park to stop and stay a few days at. It is near us

Medoc Mountain State Park

N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation: - Welcome to Medoc Mountain State Park

About 15-20 min off I95, its a great stop. Not too crowed, clean and cheap.

Thanks to whoever posted this one before on this forum, that's where I heard of it.

Thanks all. We were able to secure a handful of nights in Anastasia, and tybee island as well.

We wanted to hit the keys but all those state parks were completely booked up! Not a single day anywhere!

We have to visit family in Boca, but have almost two full weeks on the road.

Any have recommendations as to "must" stay campgrounds or state parks along the way?

We're ok with going out of the way a bit too...
There's a lot to choose from. In order to make recommendations we need to know if you are going to make a dash down I-95 or are you going inland a bit?
In December there could be anything in between freezing and warm weather. Will you need hookups or is boondocking ok?

I'll mention a few of my favorite campgrounds that I have used when traveling to Florida. You could be passing nearby. All have electric & water onsite with a dump station on exit.
Skidaway Island State Park GA
Edisto Beach State Park SC
Huntington Beach State Park SC
Hunting Island State Park SC
Anastasia State Park FL

I've not stayed here, but Medoc Mountain State Park NC is about 10 minutes off of I-95 in central NC

Florida allows one to book a campsite 11 months to the day in advance. Registration window opens at 8:00 AM

Any available sites in the Keys in Snowbird season are all taken within a second or two after the window opens.

Let me rephrase.

On any given day, one can book a campsite to arrive up to 11 months in the future for a maximum of 14 days. You have to wait until 8:00 EST for the booking window to open for any date exactly 11 months in the future.

So on February 15, you can book a site for arrival no farther into the future than January 15 of the following year. If there is availability for January 15, you can book that date and up to 13 additional days immediately following your arrival date. But you have to wait until the booking window opens for that date, 8:00 AM

People come to know how competitive it is to book these sites so they find the site they want , bring up the booking page and are poised to hit the "Book this site" button at exactly the stroke of 8:00

I've been lucky a few times and beat the competition but have also been beat out many times, as well.

As I mentioned earlier, the farther south and the closer to the Ocean/Gulf you are, the more competitive it is

This also happens for popular national parks, such as Yosemite as well as popular California parks

If you are still interested in the Keys try this Bluewater Bay RV park. It sits down at mile marker 25 (I think) at south end of keys. It is pricey$$$ and somewhat exclusive (nothing under 24 feet) but each site has a tiki hut with other amenities and most are on the water. Just a thought.
