Where to go?

My husband and I are trying to figure out where to spend the winter. We are in Texas panhandle now and don't want to stay here. We want a safe park with lots of activities, but not too expensive-$400-$500 per month or so. Any suggestions? Thank you!
p.s. we are open to anywhere, not just Texas.

Hi Jolene! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

Little Charlie Creek RV Park in Wachula, FL, was recommended to us. It is $465 per month plus electricity.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Southern California?

San Bernardino county has several parks with hookups that you might find interesting.

For example, Park Moabi has monthly rates for RV sites on the Colorado River at $500 per month. They don't offer campsite RV dumps, but a honey wagon comes around weekly to do the work for you. Can be windy anywhere along the river.

Here is the county website... San Bernardino County Park Camping

Get on I-10 west to Benson, AZ. Give the Saguaro Escapees RV Park a try for $50/week - full hookup. If you like it, and I'm sure you will, you'd have to join the Escapees Club for $40/year, and you could do it right at that park. Then you could stay monthly for $330/m - full hookup.

It is an extremely friendly park with lots of activities, concerts, meals, etc. and if you're lucky to be there the month of December it's a wonderful place to spend your holidays including your holiday meals with your new friends.

Look over the site. It has photos, too. The sites are large and lots of lovely landscaping.

For the most part $500 per month will place you in the East-West center of FL. The CG will be away from the larger urban areas. Above Lake Okeechobee you'll be in cattle and orange grove farmland. Below Okeechobee, you'll be mostly in sugar cane farmland, where they burn the crops before harvest (all winter long).

South Texas has some great places to spend the winter!

http://viplaferia.com/ for 440/mo plus electric. This will give you an idea of the options in the Rio Grande Valley.

I'd be getting on the phone right away if you're thinking of FL. An awful lot of snowbirds spend the winter there every year. Reservations in the better places could be hard to find. We usually make our res. 8-10mos. before hand.
