FL Gulf Coast and Key Campgrounds-Need Help

My DW and I are planning our first big trip in our new rig. We are planning to drive down to FL from OH and camp along the Gulf Coast and FL Keys. We are overwhelmed looking at potential sites on line. We want your suggestions on places to stay and enjoy. We will be doing biking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and snorkeling.

Thanks

In the Panhandle area, east of Apalchacola, is the Ho Hum RV park. Right on the beach. West of Apalachacola is Indian Pass Camp Ground. Fishing was good to me ar Indian Pass. The restaurant at the 4 way stop in Apalachacola has, without a doubt, the best Oyster Po Boy I have ever had. There is also St. George's Island State Park. Have not stayed there but have heard good things. Fishing and kayaking..

There are several great state parks along the panhandle area, Henderson S.P. on the beach in Destin, Grayton Beach S.P. close to Seaside, Topsail S.P. on beach, and St. Andrews S.P. on the beach in Panama City Beach.

We stayed at Camping On the Gulf in Destin Feb 2011 with friends, she wouldn't stay in a state park, changed her mind when we got down there and did a drive thru. http://www.campgulf.com/
Absolutely Beautiful we were on the 3rd row, the first 2 are on the beach which meant we had an unobstructed view over their roofs.
Friend didn't catch a fish (did catch a bad cold) the teenage girl standing next to him did .
Make you reservations now!

We stayed at St. Andrews in Panama City this June.

Really really NICE and the price is right,
Again reserve early.

Traffic was not bad at all in Feb, really wasn't too bad in June.

You say your coming from Ohio, why the Florida panhandle? Isn't that kind of out of the way? How long is your trip? Are you looking for overnight stops or are you in no hurry? How far down in the Keys?

I wouldn't wait to long, It's hard to get reservations that time of year. Forget Key West by now they are all booked already. I read one place was like $125.00 per night. Prime time for that area in the winter months. That's not saying you may get 1 or 2 nights but long term is booked at some places a year ahead. Not many choices in the keys that are worth anything. I remember we pulled in one and pulled right out. Did not look like the web site at all.
