Minnesota to Florida Overnights Late Jan.

G'morning:

Say,....my cousin and his wife would like to spend a month in Florida departing Northern Minnesota in late January 2013 but they're having a heck of a time trying to plan overnight stops providing electrical hook up they need especially until they get down to warmer country.

They're traveling in a motor home from near Duluth, MN, and were planning to run South through Minn. or most likely Wisconsin down through Illinois and on through Kentucky, Tenn., into Georgia, etc. They'd like to run around 300 miles (maybe 400) a day.

Can ANYBODY offer suggestions for overnights w. electrical power along their general route. Route doesn't really matter, just so they can escape the cold. Thanks.

Steve & Lynette

I would say being where they live they will need to plan now. Many campgrounds up north shut down during winter.

I would recommend checking casino's. Usually open year around and cheaper since they hope you spend money inside!.

We come out of Wisconsin every year .we come down route 65out of Gary Indiana and stay in parks along the way ,but they will be closed.dont you have a generator on your mh? That way you can stay in way sides over night .we do that once and awhile when traveling.take hy 65all the way down to hy 10 in Florida then go east. To where ever you want to go.that way you don't have to go down Mt Eagle in Tenn.i like this route because you get to see a lot of things.alos if you don't know your way around Alanta your gona get lost. Enjoy your trip &stay safe.

I have stayed at this RV park in January ... it is just a few miles west of Champagne/Urbana

==> tincuprvpark.com

Not fancy but it has electricity and water ... even in the winter ... self service ... pay by check

There are also two RV parks just outside of Des Moines IA that are open year round ...

1) Griffs Valley View RV Park this is near Altoona, IA ... I have stayed here several times in January ... nice place .... nice people

2) Cutty's - Des Moines Camping Club this is near Urbandale, Ia... I have never stayed here but the information says they are open year around

have ya left yet? new ulm has a campground. and also mankato has a few along 169 near the falls, if you explain your plan. im sure they would let you stay the night.
otherwise i think they are closed for camping till it thaws..but if new ulm isnt out of your way, you can park in my driveway..i have a hookup for electric out there as well, and i have well water, but your free to use as much as you need. hope i can be any help,,if you havent left yet that is..just send me a privite mess so i dont miss it, if your interested.
