We don't stop there at WalMart...BUT the guy (CG owner) who complained has a DUMP! We used to stay there, but no longer do. Lake City has grown a lot since the 80's!

PS.. I did send the Mayor a link to the thread running on the other board, when ths first atarted. Thought he needed to know what one of his local business owners was costing him in bad publicity. Maybe he drove through the CG as I suggested...maybe the guy will even clean it up??

I know of only one RV park at the main exit to Lake City - it's called In and Out. And it is a dump!!!! The entire front part of the park is inhabited by old, rundown units and multiple families living in each one. If this was the only option, I'd opt to travel on.

Don't know if ya'll are aware of it or not but there are a couple of national forest campgrounds just to the east of Lake City at Olustee that charge only about $10 per night if you want a campground with facilities in the area. If you don't mind boondocking it, then you can park anywhere in the Osceola National Forest for up to 2 weeks free of charge. They have no requirements on the specific type of camper you have, only that you keep your campsite clean and leave no trace when you leave. The Osceola National Forest is only about 15 miles east of Lake City. Hope this helps some of ya'll travelling in that area. I take my tent and teardrop camper out there all the time and camp.

Not the experience I had staying at Oaks N' Pines in Lake City, FL. Stayed Nov 18, 2011

We arrived and paid additional to have our daughter and grandkids spend the night. When our daughter arrived in a separate vehicle she was instructed to park in the storage area, which wasent a big deal, and it's understandable to only have 1 car on a lot. When she asked if she could drive to our motorhome to drop of pillows, bankets and backpacks, and then go back and park, she was asked if she had a problem with walking!

She was led to the storage area to park and she and my grandkids walked and carried pillows, blankets and backpacks out to our lot. not a huge distance, probably 200ft, but they sure were not flexible or understanding.

The next morning my daughter pulled her car up to the empty lot next to us to load up. Let me just say that the area we were in wasn't crowded. Maybe 4 or 5 units in a area with about 30 or more lots. A man in a 4 wheeler walked up to me and began demanding that the car be moved immediately! Since my daughter was in the motorhome gathering their things I told him she would be out in a minute and she would move it. He then screamed "I said Immediately" then jumped back into his 4 wheeler and must have gone back to the office to turn of our electricity.

At this point I decided to leave and go to another campground.

I did have to break a campground rule and run my generator to stow my satellite dish.

I have no idea weather I was dealing with the owner, manager or employee, however whoever these folks were they were not friendly and I really thought the shutting off of electricity was a childish move!

The problem is not the towns or cities, it's the campground owners Assn. They petittion the government for laws of this type and unless a cadre of RVers find out in time to show up at the proper time to argue against it.. The law is passed.. This is how our government works after all.. Then once it is passed the same assn pushes for enforcement.

The solution is to show the campground owners, and the city, how much we appreciate their passing such a lay by PARKING and SHOPPING... Elsewhere.

And let the stores (Not the campgrounds) know why we are shopping elsewhere.

(Sorry, would love tho shop your ______ store but alas, i can't park my RV and I do not have a car Thus I'm going to have to shop your competitor's store over in _____ where I can legally park still)

AFAIK, Lake City reversed their restrictions on RV overnight parking and has welcomed RV'ers back into their warm embraces, long ago...Feb. '11.

Here ya go. Bob

That's correct, and it's noted in one of the earlier notes in this thread, dated some time in February 2011.
