Almost Camping Season

My northern friends will laugh at this, but it's almost camping season for us in the deep southern US. Maybe 4 to 6 weeks to go. Good news is that what I consider camping season lasts about 8 months here.

Can't wait to get out there, once the summer heat wanes and the evenings are cooler. Now, to find the time to go!

Not quite the same, the season for us starts in Sept and runs thru about June. Of course we have to head down your way for the winter.

Most of the folks up this way stop for the year in about Oct and resume in late May.

Sorry, Robert, but I am laughing. The 8 months to which you refer I consider short-term "do other activities season," which may include an occasional short RV trip. It's the other 4 months I consider "camping season." That is when I hook up and venture on extended trips to the more northern lattitudes where I can continue doing the outdoor activities I have been doing for the previous 8 months and my T-shirt, as during those 8 months, does not get sopping wet with perspiration.

Well yeah, if you're going long distance to camp Carl, all bets are off. I was just talking local. Camping in November, December and January in south Texas is downright pleasant.

I totally agree with Carl .Summers are for camping and getting away from Florida's inferno . We usually do a few camping trips in winter weekends etc .We can't wait to pick up our new 21 Going to Goshen Indiana for pickup. Next Summer exploring Maine and Eastern Canada .

BTW there is room for 2 more trailers on that load Tammy I'm doing my part to fill up those loads . Jim

When would you camp locally in Florida? I think my point was missed.

Au contraire, Robert. With the one unusual exception of heading out with my son and family this week, my camping begins with Labor Day and ends with Memorial Day, December being the only month with no camping for me. An old saying: There's no such thing as bad weather, only bad gear.

Camp on!

camping Florida

There are so many State Parks and RV Parks in Florida
Example in the Keys= Bahia Honda at the end of 7 mile Bridge, Boyds in Key West

Google : State Parks in Florida We usually get to a few within a 5 hour drive of Naples in the winter . Jim

Yes, but HEAT can change that. Believe me. I like it cool or cold when camping. 100 degrees and relatively high humidity means spending way more time inside the trailer, and that means hookups. Not really my idea of camping.

You're making my point for me. Plenty of local places to camp in Florida- it's just that the ideal time to do so is the opposite of our northern friends.
