Gilbert, Without a doubt Rainbow Springs SP, just north of Tampa. It was once a private CG and is one of the few State Parks with on site sewage. Has plenty of kid stuff to do, plenty to see. Fishing, swimming and rafting. Free for campers! A natural spring with 40 million gallons a day. At 72 degrees! If you can, the best spot is #43, right up front, yet no headlights coming at you from any angle. One of our favorite FL SPs. Reserve on line as early as you can. You can see what your reserving on google earth.

Gil, We specialize in FL state parks. East coast, just north of Orland has Blue Springs SP much the same as Rainbow. Where in FL are you? I keep records of the sites we've been to and enter comments about the campground. Even state where we'd stay if we return. Tons of state parks here and all sites can be reserved on line. FL state park booklet tells you which have campgrounds.

Tree, I'm in Gainesville fl. And I this is all new for me. I looked in Internet and find a place in Salt Springs, Ocala. And will be my first time using the RV that's why I'm looking for a place closer to my to try the unit.

Gil, What we think is a good idea when checking out a new place is go to the website you think you'd like, look at the map, choose a spot. Don't reserve yet. Google the physical address, look at the address on google maps or google earth, then you'll see whatr your site really looks like in regards to shade, dumpsters, comfort stations and dump station, etc. If you still like it, book the site. We also check out the location of the nearest wally word, and other points of interest.
We always keep food in the camper, but we generally set up camp then go to walmart for fresh produce and the foodstuff for our stay. This also allows us to check out the neighborhood. Then we proceed with our stay. We like to know about the destination before we get there- the to do things. Sure we like to fish for example, but what to do during the rain!!
