Winter, Florida / South

I am new to the idea of spending some time in the South during the Winter, so please excuse my lack of understanding.

I'm just looking for someplace where I can escape the New England weather for some period of time during the winter months. Nothing special. It needn't have lots of amenities or activities. When I look through the campground/resort directories the great majority of the places I see are huge...300, 400, 600 spaces all tighly packed [satellite views] with 80% to 90% permanent [park model] units. They are also, to my mind] pretty expensive...$350+ per week, $1100+ per month.

Am I being unrealistic in looking for a clean campground where you can smile without your teeth hitting your neighbor's coach, in a considerably lower price range? Should I be looking somewhere other than Florida?

Appreciate all input be it for specific campgrounds or general comments.

Theres lots of places in FL that come to mind…Rock Crusher Canyon, Anastasia Park in St Augustine, Top Sail State Park in the Panhandle, Jetty Park in Cape Canaveral, Long Point Park in Sebastian, Wickham Park in Melbourne (City Park, very nice). Theres a bunch on west coast (Rock Crusher is west coast)…just to name a few.

Southern Fl has many nice places. Also its a lot warmer than the northern areas. Check this web site for campgrounds also rvpark reviews.com, but don't wait until the last minute make reservations as soon as possilble.

We found that the majority of FL state parks are very nice. All of the ones we stayed at had electric and water, some had full hookups. Then there are some resorts like The Great Outdoors in Titusville. The spaces are fairly close but the amenities ate great, especially if you are a golfer.
Also Wilderness RV in Silver Springs FL. Nice wide spaces, particularly those that border the Florida Trail.
Lots of choice but you do need to plan a little in advance. During the high season the weekends fill up at the state parks.

There's lots of reasonable places in Florida. Look from northern central Florida to South Bay on the southern side of Lake Okeechobee, and well inland from the coast on both sides. See my blog FugaWeTribe | Where in the……? for a few of them.
