central Florida RV parks

We are heading down to Florida between Christmas and new year and need some advise.
We want to do Universal parks and some beach time. We are having some problems locating a few good parks. We will be traveling with our Dogs......
Any information word be great, but we know for sure want nicer parks.....

Atlantic or Gulf beaches? Do you want to be on the beach or near the beach?

You are going when the snow birds will have a lot of the parks outside of Orlando booked up. However, there is a KOA (I believe) on the West side of Universal where Highway 27 exits from I 4 going towards Haines City that usually has sites. And it is less expensive than those near Universal/Disney.

I recommend staying at Fort wilderness at Disney. It's an awesome experience and worth the little extra money. We were down there in October and went to Universal from the Fort. Piece of cake! Back roads, very little traffic and only about 15mins or so. Plus you drive by grocery stores so if you need anything it's easy to grab on the way home. Fort wilderness is very pet friendly as well.

As far as beach, well we ended up driving up to the pan handle. I never did find a good place near the ocean on either the gulf side or ocean side.
I do know there are a couple state parks on the ocean side closer to Jacksonville, but they were booked at the time. You may want to check the FLA state parks.

Enjoy your trip!

1st. choice by far is Fort Wilderness (20 mins to Universal) If you try every day , you may get a cancellation
2nd choice is Tropical Palms, a really decent campground to stay.

The KOA tho OP mentioned is Fort Summit and on I-4 about 40 mins depending on traffic, Parking garage at Universal is about $14 then a looooong walk.

4 dogs may be a problem, Thousand Trails, Clermont is allowing the public in and usually allows more than 2 well behaved dogs. Good Luck
