Florida boondocking

Heading to FL today and would like to do 70/30 boon/CG. I understand there may not be too much there for isolated no hook-up places, so looking towards Nat/State parks.

Going with no others plans but have plenty of camping apps. Looks like will concentrate in the Ocala to Leesburg area.... And perhaps down towards Tampa.

My one concern is my rig and trailer is 50ft. Looks like that may restrict us a bit, but not opposed to disconnecting in a nice spot to stay a week or so, also traveling with 2 dogs.

We're looking at 2-3 months and would appreciate any helpful tips.

John & Clare....

How about the panhandle?

There is a lot of wildernes in the panhandle. We just spent 8 nights in the Mack Landing CG in the Apalachicola n.f. For 6 of those nights we were all alone. The CG has a water tap and vault toilets.

You would have no trouble with your rig. The CG has no real pads. Rather, there is a large central area with 10 tables and fire rings. A few large trees to dodge, but no real problem.

There is a boat ramp, so there might be some occasional traffic, but not much.

Agree. I stayed at Williams Landing. There is a lot of camping in the Apalachicola National Forest. Mack Landing sounds interesting.
