What type of site are you looking for?

Last winter, we were in Florida from mid-Jan to mid-March, and didn't begin making reservations until December.

First, we spent two weeks in Big Cypress National Preserve. Four days were at Midway C.G. with electric hookups. The rest of the time we were in Monument Lake C.G. with no hookups.

Next, were four weeks in Everglades National park. We had ten days at Flamingo C.G. with electric hookups, and the rest at Long Pine Key with no hookups.

Our next stop was two weeks in Ocala National Forest, followed by two weeks in Apalachicola National Forest. Neither of them had any hookups, but we also had no trouble getting sites with no reservations.

If you don't mind running a generator for a few hours a day to keep your batteries charged, it can be done, even with late planning. IAs usual, I heven't yet started to make plans for our late summer / early fall trip to S. Dakota, Montanna, and wyoming.

Not wanting to stay in one place will make finding a spot more difficult. I own a lot in Fort Myers, close to Sanibel. I and most owners that I know require at least a 3 month minimum stay, paid in full prior to occupying. December and April should be reasonably easy to find. Jan 1st to April 1st are the months in demand.

Good luck.

My plans haven't firmed up enough to even pick dates, let alone decide on where to try this winter. Might just end up in QZ for a while.

As Florida residents, we understand the pressure to find RV sites for the winter season.
As a suggestion, Rice Creek RV park in Riverview, Fl is an older park, but very comfortable and reasonable as to cost. Have stayed there in the past and enjoyed the pool, dances, and full service site.
Take care, come to Florida. Enjoy our state with it's many attractions. Also help pay our taxes.
