NOTHING.. TT does not have anything to do with the National Parks or State parks.. SP and NP are quite nice along with the COE,, corp of engineers, as a great non TT way to camp, sometime, away for the crowds and run down facilities at some TT parks.

The NPs I listed were close to the TT/Encore parks I stayed at for "free".

I've been to the Florida Keys, wintered in Florida 3 years straight, the Everglades NP, Mammoth Cave NP, Sedona, Lake Tahoe, stayed with a view of the Pacific Ocean, Yosemite NP all with my TT membership and included in the $8/night I quoted above.
Can't be beat! But hey some people it is not for them...
With 3 winters in FL you must know the secret. I would like to know how you did it. Send me a private message.

No secret. My membership allows me to book 120 days out and I do. Most people complain because they wait too long. As they say the early bird catches the worm. I leave Florida in a few weeks. I am already booking my June reservations in the Pacific Northwest.

We are just starting on our journey. I have not wintered in FL yet. I have the 120 day out reservation too. Do you use TT exclusively? Trails Collections? Encore? Do you move every two weeks since these are high use parks? Thanks for the help. Any other tips?

Yes to all (TC IS Encore). As I said previously no secrets. Book at the farthest out window allowed by your membership otherwise you will almost definitely have problems and not get reservations you want.
