Florida/Georgia RV Parks that are open or plan to open

Is there anywhere in Florida/Georgia that has any parks open yet? Public or Private.My driveway is just not cutting it anymore.

Georgia RV park

We are at Enota Family Campground right now and only a handful of rv's here. Plenty of room and beautiful waterfalls.

Just got back from Unicoi State Park in N Georgia. We were there a week and the weather was nice. It appeared that most of the state parks in Georgia were open for camping. The camp store however was closed.

All Georgia parks are open. Never closed.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

NOT in the Keys. Monroe County still has a total ban on leisure travel into the Keys. We are camp working in Marathon and we MAY be able to take guests in June. Just last week RV parks were allowed to take reservations that can be honored WHEN they open up the Keys. The roadblock at MM 112.5 is still there.

A lot of people do. Bummer. We're going to get slammed here when they open the Keys back up. We're fully booked through September, that is, if they lift the order.

Springerdad, have there been any indications that the checkpoints will open in June? I know I've heard that May is totally off the table. We are one of those that are trying to head down ASAP.

They are not even hinting at a date yet. Your best way to know what's happening in Monroe County is to visit this link daily:

https://www.monroecounty-fl.gov/1169...19-Coronavirus

I check it every morning. I want to be prepared for the 'onslaught'

Hey Frank what park were you at when asked the Park Ranger? We have reservations starting on Saturday the 16th at Grayton Beach State Park and would be interested in any new information. We have the spot until Memorial Day!
Our Friday the 15th was cancelled due to Governor Order.
