When I look at camping in the winter in Texas, I think it is better to be here. If you are here in July, August and September, we live with pure humid heat it is hot. I now have 2 AC units and will see how much better it is.
We still have 3 more trips for this year plus Christmas week.

Here's out site in Key West.

My vacation is almost done. I will be in Greenville in November for 3 days at a model glider contest, and come January, my sons and I will be in Oklahoma trout fishing. Probably in late February, too... It's much nicer down here in winter. The parks are open but no one's there. Camping down here in summer is too hot and too many people.

We are also heading to MB, specifically OL between Christmas and and New Years. Do you normally go that time of year. What is typical weather like. Guess the heated indoor pool is a good option for the kiddies.

We go nearly every February to MB Travel Park. Some years it's warm, some years below freezing. One year we had snow. Never a problem, and we love the fact that most of the crowds are gone. Oh, and it's ALWAYS windy.

Wow that Key West site looks awesome. My wife and I were married there 15 yrs ago. Never thought of going there with the toyhauler but after seeing your pic it is going to be a must! Maybe an anniversary trip will be in order.

As for our season it ended last weekend as the door to the storage building closed. It was a sad moment. Fortunately we snowmobile in the winter so we're still able to enjoy the outdoors. We'll be ready for spring I'm sure.

In north Louisiana we camp year round. Fall and winter are best. Easier to stay warm than cool. Good campfire weather too.

We go to OL every year around the end of December. Weather is usually not to bad as long as the sun is out. One year our hose froze over night. Kids spend a lot of time at the indoor pool, arcade, skate park and basketball courts. They have even gone into the ocean a few times but not for long due to water temps. I just like taking walks on the beach when there aren't a million people there.
