At the last minute, we are wanting to try Florida for a snowbird experience. I know that good parks book full months ahead of time. But anyway,

-Would prefer gulf side but not essential. Central FL is fine, doesn't have to be south.
-Does not have to be near water.
-Has to have a golfing group and nearby courses.
-Not trying to cut corners, we would rather pay up and enjoy some luxury.
-Prefer it has fewer park models, or at least a big RV contingent.

We have an 11 year old fiver, it's excellent cosmetically but still, it might exclude some of the parks.

Suggestions??? (stop laughing!) [emoticon]

It may seem like a simple answer but go to RVParkReviews.com and find a park you might like. They will list the perks at the park and you can decide how much is available. Then call them and ask. Cancellations happen all the time and you may be surprised and get just what you want. All it will cost you is the phone calls. One park may even suggest another in the area as they sometimes help each other stay full.

Let us know how you make out.

We have Orange City for Feb and Mar.

Try Grand Lake RV resort in Citra. Near Ocala. Has a golf course.

Wekiva Falls Resort near Sanford has 700 plus sites.

Rockcrusher at Crystal River probably booked.

Do what I did, got on the phone and internet. Find parks that meet your expectations and contact them.

I just called Sanlan RV Park in Lakeland FL yesterday. We are moving back to Lakeland from Winter Haven and will need to live in our MH until we can find a house in Lakeland. I thought there was no way there would be a site, but alas, there was. They aren't cheap during the season, but you might give them a try.

Sanlan has a golf course, but I have no idea how nice (or not) it is.

Clerbrook Golf and RV Resort in Clermont. A little advice. If you hit the ball into the water leave it for the alligators.

Best to just call, as others have suggested. I called 'Sun n Fun' in Sarasota Fl in mid Nov, for a slot from 27 Dec to 2 Jan, and had no real problem. It is a resort, and not a state park (we prefer state parks), but this time of year, you take what you can get. I'll be with family more than I will be in the RV.

I've never had a problem finding a space for a short while, but long-term is problematic. All you can do, unless you luck into a cancellation, is call around till you find something. Don't ignore the county and state parks, either.

Williston Crossings RV Resort in Williston, Fl, about 15 miles SW of Gainesville. I stayed there one winter. It's a big place (535 sites) so they might have sites available. Top rated. About 30 miles from Cedar Key.

Read their reviews on RVPARKREVIEWS.COM

I don't golf so can't comment to that. But in Florida you are never too far from a golf course or 10. If you call them, ask about a golfing group.
