I don't mind no shade. We actually deal with that pretty well. I'll take a look at these, Papa GLS.

BBC

They cancelled their group rally and moved to a new site. Thats 30 units times $100 per night times three nights!!!
BBC has been one of our favorite CG over the years, but when prices get over $100 per night, we just can't cut it anymore. I hate it but we will have to find some other CG near Flagler Beach.
Absolutely, in addition, we made a reservation there (no credit card, which is good and bad- I mean what if we got there and they lost our reservation) AND the "confirmation" states the prices are subject to change. I talked with the manager and she honored the initial quote but then I got an e-mail and was told I would have to talk with the owner, Sid. The woman I spoke with said they are being slammed by angry customers who show up and find their bill $400 more than they expected. Probably won't go there but the beach is beautiful. Last year we stayed at Flagler by the Sea. It is functional - we stayed on the beach but the area across the street, which is also theirs, has a biker bar (no offense to bikers) and is run down, which is why we were going somewhere else but really if you are self contained then why not? PS the beach is on lease for dogs

I remember jumping down that sea wall, so it's definitely not 12' tall. We just dropped all of our stuff from our site off the edge of the wall, then walked it to the beach. It's a huge beach that you have pretty much all to yourself. But I can understand the fear with the 2 year old. I had the same fear with my dogs, but at least I can leash them without getting strange looks.

I uploaded some pictures for you. Let me know if you can see... Forest River Forums - dkb74's Album: Beverly Beach Camptown, Flagler Beach

Note that this was in July, when you'd expect the beach to be packed. And yes, these are pre- travel trailer. Our first camping trip in our then new-to-us popup.

Thanks Darlene!

We're at a loss now for where to go. My wife decided that she wants to spend more time at Disney's Fort Wilderness so now my big money spend will be there and now I need to find somewhere beach accessible. Looks like I'll be re-reading the replies so far!

Don't you just love it when you do all the research and finally get a good plan together, and then they change their mind?

I know you've had some Fort De Soto pics already. I have some in this album: Forest River Forums - dkb74's Album: 2013 Camping in our 2014 Rockwood Mini-Lite 2306

But we stay in the pet friendly loop. Little water access. Affordable, but HARD to get into! You have to book 6 months in advance to have a chance... and Pinellas Co residents get a 1 month jump on top of that.

We love Fort Wilderness! But yes, $$$$. Worth it with the Disney-fied add-ons, in my opinion. But it depends on what experience you're looking for.

I guess I didn't post any pictures from our 2014 camping. We spent a week on Myrtle Beach.

Or you could just say to heck with her plans, and stay at Curry Hammock SP (pics in that album) or Long Key SP - both in the Keys. We are staying in Long Key for a week in July for lobster mini-season. Right on the water!

LOL, it was a mutual decision. But yeah- nothing like figuring it all out and then having it change!

LOL- unfortunately, I'm looking for something between MD and Orlando as we're on our way to Clermont, FL for a spell this summer. The beach/Fort stay is an "on the way" kind of thing.

Maybe we'll go down later in the summer. I'd like to take a week off in August and spend it in the water somewhere. I'd have to check how those state parks are for big rigs, though.

ReserveAmerica.com is where most state park reservations are made. They will tell you what size they accomodate, and usually have pictures of each site.
