Florida Campers - Favorite camp spots?

Last winter we tent camped at Lake Manatee State Park and Fort DeSoto. Over the summer we purchased our Flagstaff HW. This past July, we camped in SC, WV, and Pennsylvania.

Next weekend we will return to Lake Manatee for a four day outing with our grandchildren. Looking forward to experiencing the park in our Aframe!

For this winter, we plan to camp one or two weekends a month. During the school year, we take care of our toddler age grandson, but, during the school breaks we plan to take a couple 4-5 day camping trips. We prefer state parks and quiet private campgrounds.

What are your favorite spots?

Topsail Hill in Destin is our favorite spot of all time.

Being in Seminole, you have Hillsborough River SP east of Tampa. Up to Dunnellon to Rainbow Springs SP with full hookups tubing from Memorial Day - Labor Day. salt Springs Recreation Area, full hookup but hit and miss cell coverage.

We have booked several SP for this winter. The trick is to book 11 months in advance. We provide day care for our grandson during the school year. So, we try to reserve campsites during school breaks or at least one weekend a month.

We love St. Andrews SP on the panhandle in Panama City Beach. This December will be our first winter trip there but have always loved April. Beaches are beautiful, some nice walking trails, a nice fishing pier on the gulf and another on the bay. We have always used our small tent camper but this year we are looking forward to our Flagstaff HW AFrame.

It's one of the most visited SP in Florida and the most neglected by the state. The campground has a series of under ground drainage pipes that have been Clogged for years. A few years back, they were running pumps 24-7 just to keep sites available. ( remember, that's a lagoon right there) The pot holes that are in the washed out campground road have been that way to over 7 years only to be filled with limestone when we complained. The 30 amp sites along the lagoon suffer from low voltage when summer temps require everyone's air on. We moved west to Grayton Beach SP and will leave St Andrews to those that like our states neglect.

Manatee springs is nice. There is a concessionaire that rents canoes and kayaks, has pontoon rides, including sunset and after dark on the Suwannee river, and food service. There are also several trails and a swimming area in the springs. Last week there was a herd of deer in the amp that was active in both the mornings and evenings. There were also armadillos rambling through the campground. It is a nice, wooded pretty place.
