We live very near the
Tampa-St. Pete-Clearwater
area. We own a real home
and consider it our
Home Base.
We like RVing in Florida
and hiking in Florida
a lot...

Not a FL State Park but we saw pics and had to visit the waterfront sites in person! We were not disappointed! Extremely pleasant.

We went back, huge mistake. We got ripped off. Booked and paid a premium for a waterFRONT site, and we were assigned an obstructed-view water view site. Completely unacceptable. This RV Park is managed by incompentent crooks. Do yourself a big favor and take your RV to any other RV Park.

Little Manatee River State Park, FL. Beautiful. Very nice, private sites. Great hiking. Very quiet. We dodged tornados to get here!

Highlands Hammock State Park, FL. Very beautiful. Great hiking. Lots of children but still quiet. Speed bumps on entry were very annoying. My pull-through site was marked on the inside but not visible from the road, the water spigot was 6" off the ground... We're glad we went but aren't likely to return.

Day Trip
Sunset Beach Park, FL. Cute little park. No dogs allowed. We didn't hang around too long because we didn't want to spend Christmas in jail!

Alafia River State Park! Incredibly beautiful! It wasn't a warm weekend but you felt cozy with nature. We saw deer. We were visited repeatedly by a bright red cardinal!

This is a County Park, not a State Park, in Dade City, FL. The actual camp sites are nice, kinda "old Florida," quaint. Sites are roomy, nice shade. Pretty much everything else is not very remarkable. Worst trail markings of all time. No printed maps or guides. Dirt roads, both ways, in and out. Sort of glad we visited, most certainly won't be back.

This is a privately-owned campground in Homosassa, FL. It's an hour drive from our home. We spent 2 hours and 15 minutes on this trashy little place.

What an amazingly beautiful place! Three gator sightings in 2 days! Wild deer running around! This County Park is absolutely fantastic. (Very narrow 2-lane approaching the Park.) We will return often!

Our 2004 Winnebago Adventurer 33V broke down for the last time. We said "Goodbye," and now we're moving on... Bought a brand new truck (Ford, F-150, V8, Max Tow Package) and a brand new travel trailer (Grand Design Imagine 2970RL).

Video
.
Our brand new Grand Design Imagine 2970RL Travel Trailer arrived at LazyDays! We checked it out, spent the night there, learned lots of new stuff, and then drove her home!

Video
.
Absolutely shocked! This 2020 Grand Design Imagine 2970RL is so much better than the 2004 Winnebago Adventurer 33V we had! We spent some time getting outfitted, getting organized, personalizing the trailer. Still need to add some curtains, otherwise she's ready. What's next? Maiden voyage, SHAKEDOWN. I figured close to home base would be sorta smart (and getting Florida State Park reservations during the Snowbird invasion is close to impossible, big thanks to you folks because I'll be visiting new places while not paying State Income Tax).

Video
.
We couldn't get reservations at CCSP so we stayed at a nearby RV Resort. ("Resort" is not exactly accurate. Half of the place is an RV Graveyard. It's also directly alongside a railroad and trains pass every few hours and always blow their whistle, even at 3:30am.) But it was clean enough, full hookups, very friendly staff.
