Well I was hoping folks would make suggestions and tell me why it's the best based on their experience.

Ok, we are staying our second 3 month winter stay in Miami Everglades Resort. Were are planning on staying again next winter. May stay 4 months.

Big pool, the only hot tub I can find this far south, mini golf and real friendly people.

Its about as far south as one can go, without paying Keys prices.

Anything above Ft Myers starts to get about 10 colder then here. It was 80 today.

Its an easy day trip to the middle Keys. Downtown Miami, or the Everglades.

Don't expect all high end Motor Coach's, huge sites or no kids. Its a goid mix of folks here and the rental cabins often house short stay teens from Europe.

You can reserve online for next winter, now. 90 day minimum booming on line, but many folks call and get weeks or single months. Prices are listed.

"best" is very subjective.

Ok, I'm asking for your "favorite" and why. I'm looking for a resort that we would be able to spend 3+ months, not an overnight along the interstate.

Bluewater Key RV Resort at mile 14 from Key West. $200+ per night off the water. A little more on the water. Most sites come with a furnished tiki hut. The waterfront sites have their own dock. And.. it's only 14 miles from Key West.

We stayed there for a week over Christmas. https://www.bluewaterkey.com/

Try the Hogfish bar and grill on Stock Island for fantastic name sake fish. Home - Hogfish Bar

Sun RV has several locations in and around Naples. It's our favorite part of Florida.

Thousand Trails/Encore

My money is on Thousand Trails with the Trails Collection. (I have over 40 parks in Florida alone that I can stay in). Not sure where I would pick if I had to park in one for 3 months...I like to move around every 2-3 weeks.

Nobody has mentioned Disney's Fort Wilderness!!! It has about everything and then has connections to everything else.
It's a bit spendy.
