We're nine months or so into fulltime and have to say we love it. Spent last summer in the Adirondacks in NY workamping and are headed to West Yellowstone this summer to work out there. For this year we trav led during the winter. Currently in New Orleans at a great park call d Pontchartrain Landing. Highly recommend staying here if you come to New Orleans.

For next year we want to find a nice place along the Gulf Coast, maybe between New Orleans and upper Florida to stay from January to March. $$$ are a factor so looking for somewhere nice but also reasonable. Don't have to be beachfront but would like to be near.

Any suggestions from you all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance !

Vaughn,
Four years ago, on our first trip to Florida, we stayed at Live Oak Landing in the panhandle near Freeport, FL. We enjoyed our stay there. We had church friends in the Fort Walton Beach area, so, we thought we would start out near there. It is a beautiful location, although very secluded off the northeast end of Choctawatchee Bay. The campground facilities and sites at that time were very, very nice.............large concrete pads and patios. Many pull-through sites and some back in sites. Many, many live oak trees and access to water leading to the bay.

The campground is about 25 miles northeast of Destin, FL where there are lots of restaurants and other activities. It is about 12 miles from Grayton Beach State Park which has a beautiful white sand and emerald water area about a mile long. The nice thing is there were almost no people there at the beach until Spring Break time so we enjoyed going frequently. If you enjoy visiting state parks like we do, you can buy an annual Florida State Parks Pass for $125. and visit any or all state parks as often as you like. If you are veteran, you get a 25% discount provided you have veteran ID.

A big upside is that when we stayed there 4 years ago (winter of 2013/2014) the 3 month rate was around $680./month. Much more attractive than $1800./month (or higher) down on the beaches in the Destin, FL area.

The down side of the location is that it can get rather cool at times in late January and early February. Although I did not mind the weather, my wife and I were discussing it later in the spring in Indiana and she said, "If we are going to go to Florida in the winter, let's go were it's warmer." So, the past 3 winters we have stayed near Palmetto, FL. You know the saying, "Happy wife, happy life"!

Good luck in your search. Remember to make reservations early as most place in Florida get reserved a year in advance.

Hope this helps.
