I also recommend Silver Palms. We have stayed there to years before moving to Cypress Trail in Fort Myers I like Cypress Trail better only because it's in Fort Myers. Lots more to do in FM than Okeechobee.

We stay at The Glades RV Resort in Moore Haven Florida. It's actually a ways from Moore Haven at the south end of Lake Okeechobee in the middle of nowhere. We really like it. It has a 9 hole golf course on the property.

People who like beaches or towns wouldn't like it since it's in the middle of the state.

They cater to "snowbirds" exclusively from Nov-Apr. and has only a handful of year round residents. It's a gated park, right on the river with a boat launch, reasonable rates, NO metered electric, daily trash pickup, and numerous other "perks". Another BIG plus was that it was privately owned until this year when Encore bought it. We will see if it remains our favorite once the "corporate" mentality takes hold.
I heard they have just sold the resort to a large corporate company that is looking to put in Condo's. Better research so no surprises.

Henderson Beach in Destin FL is a fantastic state park.

A county park that also is fantastic is Fort Desoto in Pinellas County.

For both in season reservations are best.

Henderson "season" is actually late spring and summer (not winter as it serves as part of the "Redneck Riveria".

Its not as hot on the Gulf Coast as it is inland in the rest of the south.

The OP asked for suggestions about RV places from north to central Florida, but most of the ones mentioned here are in south Florida. I hope you can find a place for one month at this late date. Most places book up by fall, and many by the summer. State parks are also difficult to get in to. I love Williston Crossings RV Resort, as was suggested above. Suwannee River Rendezvous is decent, but very rural. Anastasia State Park in St. Augustine is very nice and on the Atlantic Ocean. There are no planned activities there, however. We are Florida residents working full time and get frustrated that we can't find places to camp when our weather is more pleasant in the winter. Good luck with finding a spot!

Where you can find a site available might be the deciding factor and figure on high prices.

I agree with CG, Williston Crossing is very very nice. Its close enough to Gainesville with lots to do. Suwannee River Rendezous is also okay, but might be too rural for some. I'm not sure you can get to a mall in 25 minutes in one piece from there.

I do agree with Decon Blue and bend302, 3 Lakes would be a good choice further south.

I hate to tell you a secret place of mine, but Sunset Isle RV Park and Motel in Cedar Key is one of my all time favorite Florida places, bar none. There is something about Cedar Key that is hard to describe, it might be the community and the people there. I love it. Cedar Key is not in the keys, its a hour or so west of Gainesville on the Gulf of Mexico; the park is on an island just before you get to Cedar Key proper. The recent hurricane blew down lots of the mangroves that used to restrict your view of the bay, but now its clear, or clearer depending on the site. The sites are tight, but its not a problem for me. Sunsets are fabulous.

State parks only allow 2 week stays and you have to move and there is even a restrictive yearly limit. I would try to swing into one of the panhandle state parks, on the way.... Henderson, Topsail Hill, Grayton Beach is three in the Destin area (beautiful white sand beaches) and worth the stop over. There is also a newer resort between Fort Walton and Destin, but not my cup of tea, as they say.

Most palaces are already booked as I found out planing my 2 wk 5 stop trip from the west coast of central Fl back around the east coast of central Fl. Our last stop will be at Compass RV park formally known as Indian River RV Par, in St. Augustine. Spoke to the new owners who took it over in Dec of 2015 and he said he's made a lot of improvements since my last visit a year and a half ago. Sounds like he's open for business, give it a shot, 10 minutes outside of downtown St Augustine and the beaches.
