Ocala Nat'l Forest

Am thinking of heading out of the Keys for the month of Feb. I know, you think I must be nuts. Lived here 20 years and house just sold and need a change for a little time. I know that there are cost free and some pay sites. How hard is it at this time to get something there? The web site talks about 'pull-offs'??? Is that just a wide spot in the road. I am not a small rig and I tow. Can I fit?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

From another site: "We are at the Sunshine Key just north of Big Pine. There are plenty of sites here." You might want to look them up.

Don't remember any pulloffs where you could overnight, but its been a couple of years since we was down.

We stayed at Jolly Roger on Marathon last time and loved it.

My point was that I want to depart the Keys, as crazy as it might sound. Woods and no water. That is why I thought about the Nat'l Forest. Sunshine Key is WAY over priced and should it rain you need a boat to get out of your M/H.

My bad, I thought it read, heading to the keys. Have a safe and wonderful trip.

We spent some time at Wilderness RV Resort near Silver Springs and loved it, though a little pricey.

Pretty sure if you call and ask, Wilderness will offer a free two or three nite stay in their new "Preserve" section.

Hi WeBeGone2,
Consider sending a private message to "Gary RVRoamer". He lives in that area.

I recommend the National Park Campground at Salt Springs. Really nice campground. We were just out in the woods near there yesterday in the Jeep doing some Geocaching. It was a beautiful day for weather also. They give you the discount if you have the national park access pass.

I'd go with the Salt Springs Recreation area as well. It's a beautiful campground with full hookups and the price is right. You can make reservations at Federal recreation, camping and tour reservation information - Recreation.gov or just call ahead and show up. They have a lot of sites that are for walkups and can't be reserved. I drove by there last week on business and saw a lot of open sites.
