Recent Storm Damage was not Ubiquitous
The two massive storms (Ian and Nicole) that recently ravaged Florida left a trail of destruction in isolated regions of the state, in Fort Myers where Ian made landfall, and St. Johns County where Nicole caused over $500 million in damages. But the damage from these storms was concentrated in only a few isolated areas of the state, and won’t keep the snowbirds away.
There are over 1100 RV parks and campgrounds in Florida. Listed below are 19 RV resorts, from the Florida Keys to the Magic Kingdom, that are eager to book your reservations for either long term or short term stays. You may not be able to make reservations in Fort Myers or St. John County, but there are ample camping opportunities throughout the state.
If you want to visit the Everglades, you’ll find camping nearby at Miami Everglade RV Resort. If you want to spend time with your family at the Disney Parks you’ll find close accommodations at Winter Garden, Tropical Palms, Lake Magic, or Sherwood Forest RV Resorts. You’ll find camping opportunities in the Florida Keys or the panhandle and all locations in between. So, make your plans and then make your reservations.
Many of these RV resorts are not only conveniently located close to must-see tourist attractions, but many of them are also destinations in themselves, and offer a wide assortment of amenities from pools, spas, playgrounds, pickleball courts, miniature golf, horse shoes, organized activities, game rooms, fishing, beach access, dog parks, and much more.
Florida is a Snowbird Destination
Florida is an excellent snowbird destination, and you shouldn’t be deterred by the recent storms because the vast majority of the state’s campgrounds and RV resorts are open for business and eager to book your reservation. You can discover the Florida Keys, or camp along the Gulf or Atlantic coasts, or stay at more than a dozen inland RV resorts which will keep you close to the abundant tourist attractions which makes Florida one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations.
But don’t wait to make your reservations because Canadian RVers are finally able to get back across the border and they too are eager to join the flock of snowbirds heading south to winter in the Sunshine State.
