Best Kid Friendly Oceanfront CG in Florida?

I'm aware of everything from Delaware to S.C. We plan to go to Fort wilderness in the next few years. But What are some top notch waterfront resort type places that don't cater to mainly snowbird 55+ types?

I've long wanted to do a trip to the keys but we've started to rethink that from some of what we've heard it being an adult type atmosphere. I'm looking for something that compares more to Ocean lakes in S.C. but with a more tropical intercoastal water way feel. I want to take my family somewhere one October/November and not be out of place.

Any suggestions?

One of our favorite places is near Saint Augustine, FL. This time of the year is perfect for there. North Beach Campground - just north of the town on the bay side of the A1A. You can walk across it to public beach access.

Go experience the Keys. The "adult type atmosphere," as in some activities are of an adult nature, will only be found in Key West, and then only at certain times.

The rest of the keys are kid friendly.

Jetty Park in Port Canaveral. Right on the beach. Fishing pier. Watch cruise ships come and go, take a biplane ride, watch rocket launches, visit the Kennedy Space Center and occasionally you will get to see a 560' long Ohio class Trident ballistic missile sub come right past the pier.

We liked Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in Jacksonville. Not directly on the beach but within a short walk.

In the panhandle there is Topsail SP. A walk to the most beautiful beach and the State Park is the only one with a pool. If you can use 30 Amp service look up Wekiva State Park for a spring fed lazy river atmosphere. I find the biggest problem with the keys is you can't get into them. Most places require long reservation waits. On the west coast there is Red Coconuts on Fort Myers Beach. Some of the sites look out on the gulf but they are more expensive than Fort Wilderness and they are so close together you can't use your awning. On Flagler Beach there is a place called Beverly Beach RV Campground that looks nice but it also is very pricey. I drove by but didn't stay. The State Park at Sabastien Inlet has a beach you can walk to but at certain times of the year the no-seeums will chew your legs off. In Florida the State Parks tend to be a good deal and family friendly. The places with gulf or ocean views are more expensive than Fort Wilderness so I just go to the Fort every few months when its not crowded and the rates are less.

St. Andrews

Another possibility is St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach.

Topsail Hill has a great beach, with shallow pools along the shore, great for smaller kids. The beach is about 1/2 mile from campground with free shuttle, and as mentioned, there is a pool.

St. Andrews is nice and here 2 beaches to swim from. If it's too windy and wavy at one, the other is behind a jetty and is calm.

As mentioned, Jetty park at Port Canaveral is good, big wide beach, Kennedy Space Center, cruse ships passing on weekends, etc.




Bahia Honda State Park in the Keys has 3 great beaches. If a beach on one side of the Key is too wavy, walk to one on the other side for calm water. Reserve well ahead here.
