Camping in February-March

Hello,

Looking for suggestions on inexpensive campgrounds in the southern states by the ocean. Staying a month or so, first big trip with our MH. Looking for relaxation, walking the beach,etc. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Rose

Nothing by the beach is cheap. In florida now $1000-$2000 a month. Ga, Sc, Al, maybe be cheaper. This will be my last winter in Fl.

I can't help you on this one. I think that is prime time of the year for snow birds. Call ahead and get a reservation made for sure. Jim

On the world news this morning: Florida has move into the 3rd most populated state in the USA , California 1st, Texas 2nd.
I am not sure of the sq. miles of these states but Florida is jammed packed with snow-birds this time of year. The way our weather is going this year it looks like you are going to have to go to south Florida to get to warm weather if that is what you are seeking.

Thank you. May I ask which campground you are using and if you like it. Thanks.

Holiday Cove in Cortez Florida between Tampa and Sarasota. Great area but this park is over priced, small, tight and Very cliquish tight knit regulars all for $1800 a month with no activities.

There are several parks nearby Ft Myers. I am using UpRiver. The area is nearby the beach and has a everything you are asking about. If you want cheaper prices you move inland. Going online will find most of the parks that are available and the prices.

Smile deep south camping...

Try Gulf Shores State Park - best bang for the camping buck! They typically have 450 or more spots....but may be full - worth your time to contact them!

The further south in Florida, the higher price for the most part. The warmer it is too. We have been in the Keys for two months so far and have not had to wear socks

That same rule applies to the closer you are to the water, especially the ocean.

State parks are reasonable from around $25 to $40 a night but there is a 14 day max at most and the popular ones need to be reserved way in advance.

If you don't mind wearing a jacket, S.C. state parks have a great snowbird deal Snowbird COASTAL 30-Day Camping - 50% OFF - Park Deals

Forget about it. Winter in Florida brings Snowbird rates. Florida state parks usually have 12 to 14 day max stay and sites can be reserved 6 months in advanced. if you join RPI, C-2-C or 1000 trails you have some deals, but many restrictions. Warmer it is, the nearer the Gulf or the Atlantic Ocean the more expensive. Passport America has many listings but most discounts do not apply during :Peak" time periods. safe travels... ed

If you are looking toward GA, check out Jekyll Island. Cannot recall their winter rates but should be on the website

In the Fl panhandle in Mexico Beach, look at Rustic Sands. Not fancy but nice. Passport park. A mile from beach. Dog friendly. Close to grocery & other shopping.

Hi Rp1955,
Depending on where you are coming from, Myrtle Beach, SC may be something to consider. Also, any of the shore cities south of Myrtle Beach. Charleston, SC
Savannah, GA
St. Augustine, Florida

These are all great places to visit. There are many CGs and many things to do.

TopSail State Park in Destin. Great beach and walking/nature paths.

Destin West RV Resort, if you can get in. Nice park right across the street from beach and bars and restaurants.
