greatlakes, Indiana has the 14 day stay rule in state parks but does not regulate privately owned parks. I don't know about Florida state parks but I checked on several private parks in Florida; some offer monthly, quarterly, semi yearly and yearly rates. Of course the yearly rates end up being the least expensive per month.

RVnerd, come on down to FL. There are no limitations as to length of stay at private CG. The Clearwater, Bradenton, Sarasota are pretty pricey, so research well. Lots of full timers and huge numbers of part time "snowbirds". AC is a must, most communities have good mosquito control, no seeum's are commonly coastal and come out in the sunset hours. I wish so very badly at your age I would of made such a decision! Congratulations, life is short go and have lots of fun!! PS. FL. Native.

It is not completely true that there are no restrictions on year-round occupation. There are some local municipalities that have restrictions (Sarasota area comes to mind). Most do not though and I can't imagine that you would just show up at a campground and set down with the intent to stay permanent without calling first.

The Tampa Bay area is great and there are nice parks all over the place that look to be rather popular with snowbirds and locals as well. You could book some vacation time at a nice state park or "Resort" style campground for a week or so and spend some of that time looking around for a permanent place to put the levelers down. That would be one benefit of having a mobile house.

Living in a motorhome with children has some unique challenges, but it certainly can be done. Here is a link to a family living with 6 children in a motorhome. their videos have lots of good information on how they are solving the problems that come with children in a motorhome.
