Title: Florida campground
Post by: Johnnycrab on September 25, 2012, 03:11:05 pm
Well we are a couple of months out from getting our 2910T. Can't wait.  Our first trip will be to Florida around the second week of January.  Does anyone know of a campground with cabins ( for friends ) on the west coast  central area?  I'm sure the different resorts fill up fast so I better get moving on this.  Thanks

   While I cannot recommend a specific park if you look at you will get an idea of what parks are in the particular area you want to be, how people rate them, and what they have to offer.  It even allows you to click on the website of the park and check out the rates, rental cabins, amenities etc...

I find this site very useful when looking for a campground.  You get a pretty good idea of what type of place it is.  I used this site for our last trip out east and found all the information that I wanted.  We were not disappointed in any of the campgrounds we stayed at and averaged $29 a night for the 22 nights that we camped.  That included using a few Passport America parks that were recommended on this site.

I'll echo Sue's recommendation for   It's a fantastic site, and we use it virtually every time we leave the house to set out on a trip.  There are no sponsored links or other commercial things to cloud the information - it's simply reviews from regular folks and it's proven to be a great tool for us to use.

We live in Florida and actually just came back from a State Park in Ocala.  Silver River State Park .... what a really, really nice place !!!!!!
It is super clean ... the sites are private with water, electric, picnic tables, firepit, and barbecue pit at each site.  Clean white crushed stone for camp sites.  Facilities are spotless.  They have a museum of Florida history ... hiking trails .... canoe rentals down the beautiful clear silver springs .... and ... they have cabins.  The campsites are $25.00 a night and the cabins have wrap around screen porches and they accommodate several people and "I THINK" they were $110.00 a night.
We went over Father's Day weekend for the first time and we had had such a nice time we stayed an extra night. 

Pets are allowed.
You are right next to "Silver Springs Park" also a neat place to spend a day and you are minutes away from the  Ocala National Forrest.
Hope that was a help   :)
