Looking for suggestions!

Could anyone please recommend a nice RV park or campground within 12 to 17 hours from the Detroit area the first week of April that would be warm?? We'll need to escape the cold Michigan weather, but will be traveling with family who own an older Class C motorhome that they don't want to take too far.

We're looking for someplace that offers concrete pads, full hookup - and maybe allows golf carts? A pool or beach would be awsome for our granddaughter. We thought of Myrtle Beach (have stayed at Ocean Lakes and LOVED all the activity!) - but worry about our daughter and son-in-law's older motorhome in the mountains.

Thank you!

Go straight south to south Alabama and you won't have any mountains just some bigger hills. Get on I-65 and go south till you can't go no more. Stop in TN and get some grits for breakfast, Get some black-eyed peas and fried chicken in AL. and before you know it you can put your feet in the Gulf.

You could try the Kings Island area in Ohio, but I'd head for farther south.

12 hours translates to about 600 miles.. Just take I-75 South and .. Start looking when you get that far south. I'm about 20 hours south just now,, Nice and warm.

Or, as we rewrite the song down here

I'm dreaming of a GREEN Christmas
With no cars sliding in the ditch
Where the weather is warmer
And not so stormier
And going outside is not a witch.

I'm dreaming of a GREEN Christmas
With heavy coats locked away
Where the sun is shining
And I'm not pining
For roads cleared by the break of day.

Others can feel free to expand on the verses.
Home is where I park it!
