The best way to check out campsites, on any trip, is to Google "RVPark Reviews". Check out what others have said about them and what ammenities they provide. We live in the Tampa area and go the I-75 route and stay in Valdosta, Ga., at the Lake Park Campgrounds. It is a good camp and can accommodate you. There also, is a KOA, in Lake Park, if you like KOA's. It mostly depends on how long you want to drive, during one day.

there is a great campground a little father south in Jasper Florida we just stayed at a few weeks ago. I can not remember the name but it has all sorts of ammenities it even has a vip covered sites with a hot tub and bbq grills for your use. Everyone is very friendly there too. Check it out!

I agree with Gripper, check RV park reviews. If you drive up to Valdosta area, you have a trip of about 400 miles+-. I have never stayed at the KOA or Eagles Roost campgrounds here, but have visited them and they can handle your 45 footer. There is several CG's from about Lake City to Valdosta, including State Parks. A good many in this general area can be found rated on RVParkReviews.

Eagles Roost, Lake Park GA, just N of the FL border, is a pleasant overnight stop. I believe about 8 hr from Naples.

Usually my first day return is the one that I like to drive the farthest as possible.
I was wondering for a place farther north.
May be I should do boondocking instead.
Thanks in advance for those that spent their time to give me those great advises.
Norm

My suggestion, would be to estimate on a map, just how far you would like to drive on your first day. Then check the towns in the area on RV Park Reviews, for available parks. Or, you could just Google Walmart locations in the area. If you make to Perry, GA, there are several good parks, there.

We do a central Fl to Indianapolis trip a couple times every year. Our overnight spots include.

Oak and Pines, Lake City, FL
Eagles Roost, Lake Park, GA
Twin Oaks, Elko, GA [one of our all time favorites]
KOA, Cartersville, GA [not really a favorite, but really convenient]
KOA, Sweetwater, TN
KOA, Corbin, KY
Whispering Hills, Georgetown, KY

Except for Twin Oaks (we sometimes stay there longer just because we like it), these are not necessarily great campgrounds for longer stays, but, for us, good overnight stops on the route you talk about. They are all easy off/easy on the highway with pull thrus and full hook ups.

Maybe if you gave us an idea of just how far north you're looking to travel (City/State), our members could zero in on CG's for you to overnight.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Just a little north of Valdosta is Reed Bingham State Park. They just put in some full hook up sites with 50 amp. We could even get our roof top satellite locked in. Nice place. There is a seafood restaurant that is open on the weekends right outside the park.
