We are crazy about Destin West Resort! It is on the Bay side if the peninsula but right across the street from the Gulf. Beautiful resort, well manicured and of course the beach is amazing. Destin has some fabulous restaurants and tons of shopping. Always something OR nothing to do.

I have never been, but friends of mine in Ohio make the trek every so often to spend spring break at Henderson Beach State Park: https://www.floridastateparks.org/park/Henderson-Beach

First be aware that in February, the Panhandle can still be chilly , especially at night. Are you looking for full services or willing to dry camp?

I loved Appalachicola National Forest but most if not all camping areas are primitive and you are pretty far from the nearest grocery or gas station. By Primitive , i mean o electric or water at sites

Lake Seminole on the Florida/GA border is really nice. Corp of engineer campgrounds and 1/2 price for seniors.

Pine log state forest, near intersection of routes 20 & 79 offers sights with water and electric and its in close proximity to Panama city beach. A little rustic but the price is right.

I'm not a beach guy (prefer shade) so I'll let others comment on those

If you are seeking warmer weather, you need to come farther south. The Panhandle is still chilly/cold in Feb. Check out the Ortona South, Corp of Engineer park in LaBelle, Fl east of Ft. Myers. The campground is located at the Ortona Lock along the Okeechobee Waterway.

I spent two weeks at Ortona in January and enjoyed it. I had too make reservations 6 months in advance though. You might be able to get a walk up site but if you can't then not a lot of other choices.

This is my third winter down here and I've learned that if you want a site, especially a "good site" then it pays to reserve far in advance. Especially the further south you go

In Okeechobee is a fantastic high end new resort, Silver Palms RV Resort. Excellent specials for first time visitors. We stayed there 6 weeks dead of winter last year. Beautiful gates, pavers, pool, clubhouse, library etc. something going all the time. Worth a shot! You will not regret it! They sell sites but no pressure on sales.
Little pricy after your special runs out!

For those traveling north or south thru southern Georgia stop over recommendation. Exit 5 off of I-75. Camping World, huge new store. 1/4 mile, next door, level pull thru sites, full hook up for $26 a night. Trees, pavement and concrete pads. Good family diner just on opposite side of 75 via the crossover. At exit 2, RV Island Pilot or Flying J ( forgot name). They have plenty of room, no reservations taken. It has become our new stop over going to FL out of N Atlanta. You might want to add them to your lists.

All the state parks mentioned are great! I would add Grayton Beach we also really like, hard to get in though. 30-A is a great place to visit, lots of places to bicycle. Fort Pickens is also really good, part of National Sea Shore. 2003. Sunseeker 2800
