FL for 2 weeks in Jan, suggestions requested

Looking to spend 2 weeks in FL in January. That time of year I think we need to be Orlando or south, but north of Fort Myers so it would be a 2 day trip down from TN. We are into glamping not camping so I think state parks are probably out. Access to water within campground a plus. Liked The Great Outdoors in Titusville prefer some water access. Stayed at wekiva falls rv resort last year and that was too close to camping and didn't care for the sulfur smell. Thanks in advance, everyone has always been great here!

In Clermont, I stay at Thousand Trails Orlando but mostly because the price is right ("free"). Otherwise, I've heard that Lake Louisa SP is nice (has hookups). I've also heard good things about Turkey Lake in Orlando (also has hookups).

Turkey Lake is an Orlando city park and over looks the Turnpike. You can hear that at night. Plus it is located in a neighbor hood and kinda tricky to get to.

Ft. Desoto state park is beautiful and a short walk or drive to the gulf. Miles of beach almost all to youdelf. Hookups and water but no sewer. Gorgeous that time of year.

Florida Suggestions

A really nice place to stay is in Kissimmee, FL. It is the KOA Campground on Seven Dwarfs Blvd. If you like glamping, then this is the place. I've been there a couple of times. You wouldn't believe that you are in a metropolitan area. Close to everything. Target, Sam's Club, etc. have fun.

Moss Park

Look at Moss Park southeast of Orlando. It is a great county park, long sites, level. No pets however. Electric and water, maybe sewer, I forget. Good water access for small boat and fishing. Lots of sandhill cranes and herds of deer (thus no pet rule). One of our favorites!

What ever you decide, decide quickly and make your reservations. Winter is when the snowbirds come down and it is harder to find available sites.
