We are thinking of trying the gulf coast this winter, rather than FL. In trying to research the weather I am seeing average daily temp of around 50. I take that to mean 60's in the day time and getting cooler at night. True? What kind of temps can I expect?

I am assuming that the Katrina-affected areas have been mostly put back together by now and we should be fine if we avoid New Orleans itself. True?

thanks,
John

It can get pretty cold occasionnally. I very seldom stays below freezing all day. My camper stays hooked up except when it goes below freezing and I just disc the wh and run the propane heater on its lowest setting at nite.

GULF COAST!!! That is a big area!!!
The Winter Texans go to the Valley, not as humid as FL., and they come back year after year, so they must like it. Happy Trails, Penny

Where are you talking about on the gulf coast???
Here in the Valley, a cool day is about 72 or so.
We sometimes get to 50-52 at night. Depends on where you are. When I wintered in Louisiana, it got a lot cooler. 30-40 nights and 50-60 days.

Do you think it is also fair to say that those CG which are re-opened are pretty much filled with folks living there full time? When we last passed through on I-10, the ones we saw from the road looked pretty full. ED

You can find vacancies, but most parks still have lots of FEMA trailers in them.

I know Mississippi can be cold during the winter. I was stationed at Keesler AFB in Biloxi in 1964 and I dont think I have ever felt as cold (but then again, I am from so cal)

The best thing to do, to really know, is to call the different campgrounds a few days before you travel. Some areas (read CGs) have set dates for opening up more sites for casual travelers. This mainly pertains to the Louisiana-Mississippi gulf coast areas.
The Alabama Gulf Shores area is more prepared at present than most other areas.
Southern wintertime can get pretty chili, too.

Good luck and happy campin'.
