Which Florida Motorhome RV Park?

Hi All,

Next year I will be relocating to Florida for 6 months out of the year and am looking for a real good Motorhome park that would make a nice community. Right now I am thinking that I would want to reside in Central Florida from Cocoa Beach down along Rt 4 to somewhere near Bradenton on the West Coast. One resort that looks very good so far that I have seen on the web is the Great Outdoors in Titusville but I haven't seen it in person yet. I don't want to be in a real crowded area and I would like RV spaces that are a bit larger so that we aren't right on top of each other.

Does anyone have any suggestions? What do you recommend that I consider?

Thanks.
Mark

Mark,
My father in law lives in the Great Outdoors. My wife and I see him 2 to 3 times a year. The lot spacing is dependent upon what section you going to but the average is about 25' between sites.
This is an ownership park and renting a lot can be anywhere from $500 to $1500 a month. To buy a lot they start at $100k and go up to $500k depending what kind of lot it is.
I will say it is one of the nicest RV parks in the area.
Bob

Thanks Bob,
I know they have some expensive lots but I saw one as low as $39K. I wouldn't pay $100K for a lot but I would pay $50K for an RV Pad. I'm glad to hear your opinion of the park.

take a look at

Bay Lake Motor Coach Resort. right on I4, 30-45 minutes to either coast, 15 minutes east of Lakeland, large pads and casitas, gated, and low-key. Great community. if you are looking for night life this aint it, but for a nice, quiet, central Fla. location, and reasonably priced, cant be beat in my book. Just south of Mt. Olive Shores North, which is nice, but really big!

We have a lot for sale in Outdoor Resorts in Melbourne Beach.
It's a large lot with many features, and a spectacular panoramic view of the river.
Room for 2 car parking.
Because of the features and view, priced at 99k. Recently reduced. If you're interested, pm me.

Thanks, that resort is on my list to check out in the spring. Prices look good and it is close to the highway with a fair amount of room between lots.

Thanks, that price is still too steep for me now but I will keep it in mind.

Check out the website for Florida Grand Motor Coach Resort located in central Florida (Webster). It is gated, beautiful landscape, large concrete pads, really nice club house and pool. It is restricted to class A motor homes. All the things you would expect in a first class rv resort. Lots can be purchased with or without a "key west" style building. You can rent or own. Prices are around $50,000 and up. You can rent by the day if you want. We are heading there next week for the winter.

Hi GreyGoose57,
Consider these choices:
1. About Mt. Olive Shores North - Florida RV Community
2. Home | Luxury RV Resort & RV Lots | Myakka River Motorcoach Resort
3. Location - Thornton Creek Motorcoach Resort

The area mentioned in the OP has hundreds of very nice motor coach resorts. Consider taking your time and renting for the first year or two. A place to stay 1/2 time is a very personal decision. I advise coach owners to look at, in the order of importance:
1. The area, what is there to do outside the resort. Variety is the spice of life.
2. The resort, how large (there is an economies of scale for activities). Resort management, developer managed or HOA managed. Get a copy of the resort documents all must obey before you buy. What activities are offered in season? Who owns what, lots, roads, common areas, pools, WIFI, etc.
3. The lot, location, view(s), restrictions on improvements.

The above needs to fit your vision of the next time in your life. Sometimes, it takes a while to figure this out.

Very nice....a bit more north than I wanted but still within reason. I will check it out. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for the inputs. I will very likely just rent the first year so I can get a feel for the area first. I've got time and there is no sense to jump to a place that I may later regret. Good advice. By the way, Mt Olive was one place already on my list so it was good to see it on yours as well.
