The RV park I stayed at over Memorial Day did the power bill for the long terms.

Rates for electricity charged by the park(s) here in Florida are the same as what Florida Power & Light charges. They can't charge more than that because they would have to be licensed as a utility. That is codified in this state. Figure $75 a month for a non HE unit in the far south.

Site rates vary based in time of year (seasonal), location, amenities and other perks. Short stays in season are the highest rate by far and yes, the price always includes FHU. There is a small break for weekly stays. When you get into months the rates drop. The biggest drop is when you get to 6 months as you no longer have to pay the Florida Resort Tax.
Parks that are 55+ also bring a premium price.

So if you want northern FL you can find much cheaper rates than along either coast or Southern FL. If you want endless summer way down by me you're going to be chasing all the moths out of your wallet for sure.

If you're on a 50-amp site, does TT charge $3 or $5/day? Or does Orlando not do that?

ependydad,

Some parks do charge for "premium" spots. They define that term in many ways. On the water. Paved patio. 50amp etc. You can go to RV Camp Sites in the U.S. | American RV Camping Grounds | RVontheGO which is the Encore/Thousand Trails website and pick whichever park you want to see the details on.

Actually, as a Thousand Trails member, the charging if things is different than the "public" is charged. In TT parks- TT members don't charge for "premium" sites, but some do charge for 50-amp service. Since TT Orlando has both 30 and 50 amp sites, I wasn't sure if they charged for their 50-amp sites. More just curious as it'll be a little while until we make it back down there.

Not for sure on Orlando TT, but I don't think so, they've never ask and most of the sites we stay on have both, we always stay in the E, F or G section and all of G is 50a. We've never been charged.

Cool. I know each park is different - if they do or don't charge. For parks that charge, you get charged if the site simply has 50 amps available (not that you use it).
