Smile Florida resort with long pull throughs

I am looking for a couple of Florida RV resorts with long pull throughs. I am 72 ft (tight) long with my trailer. I am really hoping to not have to unhook from the trailer, as we plan to use it as a garage (e-bikes and from time to time maybe car, etc.)

After hours of research I am finding it tough to determine which resorts actually have long pull throughs.

This is our first trip to Florida with the coach. Any recommendations are much appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.

The only one I can think of is Casey Jones RV Park in Lake City, FL just off I-75, although it's more of a stopover place. It's inexpensive and full hookup. Their parking area is a giant field with the pedestals and such laid out in lines, but it's all grass and there are no defined sites you need to stay within.

They normally park two Class A's towing cars inline but facing the opposite direction so each can just pull out.

If nothing else it can get you an overnight or two without having to disconnect.

Those folks are really informal with reservations. Call them on the phone, give them your last name and the dates and that's it. No email confirmation, no paying in advance. https://caseyjonesrvpark.com/

Their web site is also informal. The pictures and a lot of the text are generic and not about the park. But only $29 a night.

Margaritaville near Auberndale (Central FL). We've stayed there a few times, and had a rally there. Long pull-throughs. It's not cheap, however....

This Allstays map may or may not help you with your search as it gives you places with pull throughs. If you click/tap on each icon, it will take you to a summary where among other things, it will list the number of pull throughs and as a further option, you can then go to a page where it will give more details

Allstays - Florida Campgrounds with Pull Thrus

If you put the address in Google Maps and use the satellite view, you can get an idea of the layout of the facility so you can see where the pull throughs are located on the site and possibly how long they might be.

Here's an example that I just kind of picked at random:

Lake Marian Paradise ---> go HERE for a brief description from Allstays

...read the one review at the bottom of the page as they used a pull through

Here is the satellite view: go HERE (you can zoom in and out, plus pan around to see the surrounding area

Allstays also gives other options too ...to the the "Maps Menu" at the top right corner to find a list of other features you can filter using a search for RV parks

Would be helpful if we knew the general area you are trying to go and for how long. One night, few days, etc. know a bunch of places but if you’re not headed this way, moot point.

What's your travel time frame? Winter may already be booked for the snowbirds.

We are new snowbirds, first trip for us, mid October to Mid April.

We are looking to be in Florida from Feb 8 to April 8, hoping for 1 month at each location.

At this stage we are not particularly fussy on location, central Florida sounds good, but the big appeal for us is a long pull through at nicer "resort" type facilities.

There's a book called 'Big Rigs Best Bets' that may help you.

Twogypsies,

This is a big help. After all the time I spent on the Internet I don't know why I didn't run across this !

I have purchased the online and print version.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated !
