I really like Kathyrn Abbey Hanna Park but it's not a resort. It's a city park. You can walk to a really nice beach and it is gated at night. I am not sure if there are monthly rates though and it is on the East side in Jacksonville.

If you like small towns, the small town of High Springs (or Ft. White) is adorable. It's not ocean front- but is in an area with several river front campgrounds and the natural clear springs. These towns are off of 75 just north of Gainesville.
Thank you. The weather at the panhandle seems to work it's way here and there is little difference. We live at the beach so like it close but 30 -45 minutes is fine. Actually, the beach is not even required ~ I like small towns and big sites (pull thrus are preferred). Will be checking your suggestions, thank you.

The Great Outdoors RV Resort in Titusville is awesome. Stayed there a few days last month with friends of mine.

We have a place in Clermont Florida which is 10 minutes from Disney World. The resort is called Citrus Valley. It's a pull thru paved site with beautiful landscaping. We are still working full time and can't use as much as we would like. Will be glad to rent at a great rate. Just let me know.

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.

We are currently at Upriver in No. Ft. Myers. I wouldn't exactly call this place a resort. The dust flies around this place like a haboob. The facilities are older and need updating. There is virtually no grass, green weeds that are not maintained. There is an area where the folks play some form of golf totally foreign to me. There is one tennis court that doubles for pickle ball, bocce, horse shoe pits and shuffle board. We've never seen so many three wheel tricycles or blue jean shorts on folks anywhere. Go figure. Nope, not a resort!
No thanks, they won't be seeing us again anytime soon!
