Is that your pontoon boat on the lake

Fdw took a drive out to the cg yesterday. She said it was amazing how good things look now. The roads were repaired, the campsites dry and could hardly tell there was a flood.

We are mid-way through our first year as seasonal campers and as I was done trimming yesterday I thought I'd snap a few pics and share them here. Still some work to be done on the shed but its getting there!

Enjoying it so far and it has really allowed us to get out more with my kids sports schedules - especially since I am a coach....

Wait, after 20 yrs of traveling to camp, I cannot say how nice it is to now have a great area and site to go to.
No issues finding spot, booking 3 months in advance. No issue with noise or neighbours. No loading and unloading. No trying to figure out how to get boat out to lake as well. Love it!

Having a seasonal still provides options and perhaps gives the owner the most economical vacation home around. How many one bedroom condos in Florida, on the water can you buy for less than $75,000? Yearly comprehensive maintenance & management fees of $2,400, which covers everything but electric? Answer - None. Condominiums can be well over $1,000 a month plus. Insurance on a fifth wheel $500 compared to thousands for a condo.
Options? Nothing from preventing most from hooking up and traveling elsewhere, we do. Best investment we ever made.


One additional benefit, taxes. Property tax on FL lot, about $700. Property tax on fifth wheel in SC, about $2,000, now have FL title and tags instead of SC. Net cost to own approximately $1,000 a year less what we would pay to camp elsewhere...

We've finally decided to switch CG. We've been camping at our current one for 10+ years and have been seasonal for 4 years.

I don't have the room to explain everything that has gone on at the CG but suffice to say that we decided to move before it was too late. There are quite a few other campers leaving or that have already left within the past 12 months. A lot of people are unhappy and we can see the writing on the wall.

So we are going from 30 amp service with weekly pump-out (no sewer) to 50 amp service with full sewer. I also get to be neighbors with Platokidd!

Pictures will follow sometime in October once we get settled in.

We will be looking for a RV Resort/Park around the Titusville cocoa area in Florida. Would like to have any suggestions?
