Florida RV Resorts

Cross Creek RV Resort in Arcadia has been great for us. More center of the state. 1 hr from the beaches. We have no real traffic. 4 mile to town. Lots of activities, friendly people, great pool. Probably agree with Phil that South Florida is the best chance for great Weather.

Rated Good Sams 10-10-10. The sites are 38' to 48' wide. 75' to 80' deep. No worry about touching awnings here. 12' X 36' concrete patios also concrete area for two autos. All paved streets.

Well, this gives me a couple more to check next year but very happy where we are. Went to Ft Meyers & Bonita Springs last winter and viewed 8 ~~ not one I would move to, only 1 was marginally acceptable. Sites of those we viewed were very tight. With slides on both sides of my 5er it was not going to work. One actually said I'd have to drop the 5er and they would maneuver it in / out with a tractor.
During winter months northern FL is not nearly as expensive as southern FL. The weather at the panhandle is no different than the weather at home.

Shady Acres in Fort Myers was great. It is about 75% RV's and 25% permanents. A word of caution to you, in that a majority of snowbird season campsites are booked year after year. Canadians generally book October to April or May and thereby lock up a lot of sites before the later US crowd arrives.
No offense intended; only stating the facts.

We just left Upriver Campground RV Resort in North Fort Myers, FL. We were there for 2 months and we looked all over and didn't find anything we liked better and we are going back next year for 3 months. There was another campground we looked at that we would consider as a backup. I think it was called Orange Grove RV resort.

Upriver gives priority to returning guests and guests that want to stay at least 3 months over ones that want to stay less than three months. We were on a standard site with concrete patio. Next year we are going on a premium site which your coach will sit on concrete and have a concrete patio. I'm not sure the exact rate but I think for 3 months it is $1,035 for standard and $1,060 for premium site. You need to start reserving wherever you decide now.

Is that rate per month when you stay for three months? i.e. $1,035 per month
