RV Camping Suggestions for West Palm Beach, FL

Anyone have some suggestions of good RV campgrounds in the West Palm Beach, FL area? We’re planning to spend a little time there over the winter. Thanks!

If you can get into John Prince Park Campground, it's great.

Avoid Highland Woods and Breezy Hell in Pompano Beach, FL.

Can you expand on why to avoid those?

A little farther west of West Palm by just a few miles is Royal Palm Beach (we used to live there) and Lion Country Safari (now called West Palm KOA) was always a well kept campground.

We have reservations at the Lion Country KOA for a few days after Christmas and New Year. If you don't have reservations yet it may be a challenge. Later in Jan of 2022 we will be making a loop around Florida including Key West. These reservations were made MONTHS ago. We have never been down there before so I will know more in a few months!

The back-in sites are all "flag pole" lots. Meaning, take a typical rectangular spot. Now cut off the front corner and make that someone else's site. You then share the "pole" part of the spot for parking trucks and park your rig behind diagonally from the cut off corner:

Results in this hell of a layout:

For longer rigs, it makes it a PITA to get into your spot because right where your tail would swing is a light pole. The roads in front aren't very spacious for having to maneuver around a rig.

The pull-thrus are the worst. Here's the good one, on the end, all black top and facing the road:

The bad ones aren't even glorified parking spots:

Electric + water are often on the wrong side and sometimes for extra fun, significantly behind the camper.

Sewer is immediately under the camper about where my trailer axles are.

The only good about these places is Reggie, the maintenance man. He's been fantastic each time we've had to call him. Which is regularly- first when our spot was occupied by someone else and later when my electric didn't work because the previous tenant in the site behind me had rewired the pedestal to avoid his (annual) meter!
