I love the state parks in Florida, from my limited experience (last winter), they are beautiful, clean, and reasonably priced. ...and you can check them all out , and even pick out your site and reserve it, at Welcome to Florida State Parks

What area are you looking for?

Have you gone to the FL state parks web site and put in the dates you want to camp? It lets you put in dates and will show what parks have openings. A little late to get into the most popular parks.

The two wires to the brakes are blue and white, and seen intact.
On my camper there are a heavy green wire and a thinner white wire attached to the frame just as you say. I agree with using a good stainless screw (or machine screw and nut) so you don't have to worry about it again.

Yes, same wires, good, attached them back to the frame, pretty sure I got it right, but, will check that all is working in the camper, brakes included. Thanks!

Smile about key west

Allow a full day travel to travel to and from Key West. It's slow driving and patrolled heavily. Also, they take hitting Key deer very seriously, so keep alert for them. Well worth the time to drive it though. There is a toll bridge onto Highway 1 at the beginning of the keys.

I've heard some folks stay on the more northern keys and drive down to Key West. Parking is limited on Key West, so do searches on public lots. It is very walkable with the main area on the southern part around the warf and along Duval. A bus runs around the key for transportation, but parts of the route are suspended after a certain hour in the evening, so you'll want to plan the bus stops to your parked vehicle accordingly.

We took the catamaran trip to Fort Jefferson Dry Tortuga's National Park. Expensive but a nice day trip tour.

For a terrific breakfast Blue Heaven is great. The best blueberry pancakes! It's very popular, so you may have to stand in line...just sayin'

Have fun planning your trip. I have no experience camping along there, we stayed in a motel the times I went to Key West. I think you'll find most of the state parks in FL are quite nice.

Curry Hammock State Park on Marathon Key is very nice. Bahia Honda is nice also. Although, the campsites are nicer at Curry Hammock. Bahia Honda's sites are nice on the ocean side, but they have a limit on the height of campers so for the most part; only tenters are allowed on ocean front.

We too will be heading south for January and February. Last year we did northern Florida in November and we loved it. A little cool but no bugs. If you see us down by the alligators my husband will be the one with the big smile. (newly retired)

Hey, sorry, haven't been on the site for a while , been busy. Kinda think i will be goin to florida without many reservations.........i know it will be harder to get into the popular cg's, particularily if i head to the southern part of the state......but, not sure how far how south i will make it, and i kinda like what i did last year....making reservations on the road,,,,,,,,will probably start in the panhandle again, i loved it last year.......have a reservation at grayton beach sp, and will probably hit some of the other parks there again.

Taking my 12ft aluminum boat this year, on top of the truck bed on Thule racks, so I can fish. Most of the parks I stay at are either on the ocean, a lake or river!

Still might make it down to the Keys.....we'll see, maybe even take that high speed boat from ft. meyers for a day or two.

All I know is I am leaving right after christmas and don't have to be home til early March ! I am super psyched.
