Your Favorite Class A Florida RV resort

We are trying to get ahead of the curve for next winter. New class a owners, we want to spend a month at a time in several RV resorts in Florida. Trying to work through all the hype on the internet (usually self serving) about who is best continues to be a work in progress.

Important things are: 1) Things to do (both on site and close by) 2) Exercise options 3) Warm weather (further south the better) 4) class A restrictive
Just want to know where you would go back to.

The Great Outdoors in Titusville, Florida is a great rv resort with plenty to do on site and near by.

Well everyone has an opinion. We've spent 7 winters in central Fl. The last 3 has been at Wekiva Falls Resort and don't think we'll find anything better for our needs. Which are huge lots (100x50 minimum), trees, pool, stores, very pet friendly,propane (delivered), club house (continuous activities), Tiki Bar, boat/kyack rentals, fishing, beach on a huge artision well pool. All the shopping you'll ever need is only 6 miles away, yet it's well off a highway and very quite. Problems are, they let locals in on day passes. But this is only a noise problem between May and September.

I'll be looking forward to what others have to say.

Sun n fun in Sarasota is an awesome resort based on your criteria but their "customer focus" is apathetic. This only applies to the reservation process. Once your on your site (subject to change upon arrival without notice) the other employees are fine.

We still stay there because the amenities are superb but not as often as we would if their customer focus was above a D.

We stay in N. Fort Myers as the weather is warmer this far south. Stay at Raintree RV Resort but space is hard to get.

We live in Central Florida, Tampa to be exact. There are many options depending on your hobbies. Tropical Palms RV Resort in Kissimmee is a nice park, friendly staff, good size pool, café, volleyball, etc. If you enjoy car shows and/or Disney this is the spot for you. Every Friday and Saturday night at Old Town, walking distance from your RV, there is a car show with a cruise by at the end of the night. Friday nights are newer cars and rice rockets, Saturday night is the Street Rods of all kinds.

If you enjoy hiking. kayaking and outdoor stuff there are many options, Myakka River State Park, Lake Kissimmee State Park, Little Manatee River State Park, Highlands Hammock State Park. All of the State Parks are on Reserve America with many site pictures. IF you want $$$$ Key West is an option. It is very pricey, small sites, etc, But only 5 miles, biking distance, to downtown Key West.

We have spent 5 seasons at Sun-N-Fun.
We have found their customer focus to be quite good.
Lots to do on and off site.

Ask for Elaine Feather when/if you reserve.

We have spent the last two winters bumping around Florida in our new Class A Ellipse. Always started in January way down south - the Keys! Sunshine Key is probably our favorite spot in Florida. Always warm, nice campground, great people. Also, try Bluewater Key RV Park. Very upscale, a little clickish! Beautiful sites, all with private Tiki Bars! Road Runner in Fort Lauderdale. Very nice park and people. Ramblers Rest near Venice Beach. Nice park, a little tight for Class A's. Rock Crusher Canyon in Crystal River. Great park, great location. And, last but not least, Camp Gulf in Destin (on the panhandle). Do yourself a favor and book the gulf front lots. Not cheap, but what a view! I like Florida, but consider Gulf Shores State Park in Alabama, just across the state line. Don't think that being a State Park it won't be nice. One of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed in. Huge sites, bike to the beach and miles of bike or hiking trails. Google any of these for details. Enjoy your winter. I think I will try the southwest US for next winter.

I think clyon51 said it best and a lot of people like different things.

Personally, I didn't like a few of the resorts mentioned (Wekiva Falls and Tropical Palms). I would consider Sun n Fun. Our favorites are Gulf Waters in Fort Myers Beach, Outdoor Resorts in Orlando or Melbourne or North Beach Campground in St. Augustine (although they're all pretty different).

Hi ezridermd,
It seems many of the members responding to your OP do not read very well. The qualification of "class A restrictive" seems to have been ignored or overlooked. Consider the following:

1. River Bend, RiverBend Motorcoach Resort
2. Everglades Isle, Motorcoach Resorts South West Florida - Everglades Isle™ is a Florida premier luxury Class A motorcoach retreat and resort with Gulf of Mexico access located in Everglades City, Florida.
3. Outdoor Resorts, Chokoloskee Island Resort & Marina Outdoor Resorts of America (3 Florida choices)
4. Pelican Lake, Pelican Lake Motorcoach RV Resort – Naples, Florida
This is just a sample. There are many more to choose from. Consider Big Rig Resorts - Making your RV Travels Easier as a directory for what you are looking for.
