Busch Gardens, Tampa

My wife and I are interested in visiting Busch Gardens at Tampa, FL. We live in St. Augustine. Are there any good nearby campgrounds? We have a Pleasure Way so we will probably not be towing but we can if suggested. We also want to see other interesting things in the area if we can get some advice. We visited Selby Gardens which is in the area in Oct. 2018 and found it to be fantastic. So, I'm looking for advice on:
Thanks so much for any help you can give.

Busch Gardens is a neat place to spend the day. It has been there for years and years and Tampa has grown out around it. When we stay in the Tampa area, we stay off hiway 41 on a little CG/RV park on Dead River Rd. Lot of snow birds stay there in the winter, but we have always had luck staying there for a few days at the Tampa RV show. The place has been sold or redone a time or two so I don't know what the name is at present. I think it is Palm River RV resort 14910 Dead River Rd, Thonotosassa, FL 33592
As an ole N Georgia boy, I found the orange trees growing wild along 41 sort of interesting.

Visited Busch Gardens a few months ago and stayed at Lazydays. Easy to drive to the park and not get back on the interstate.
