I’m tired of seeing all of your wilderness – woodsy – backcountry pictures. Here’s what TC camping is really all about. The down and dirty, every man for himself kind of camping. You better “love thy neighbor” at this place (Red Coconut RV Resort) because you’re gonna meet them. At least I didn't have to disconnect my trailer and have them park it for me (like they made everyone else do). Enough kidding aside, I did have a great time. The beach was awesome! Very fine white sand. Here's my trip if anyone’s interested. Dave.

Pranksters from our group had a little fun with the TP!

Yikes! As a new RVer to be, how common is this in places like Florida? Do most CGs have more space between sites than this one? Would it help if we camp 30-50 miles or so inland, and then drive the tow vehicle to the beach?

I'm not sure. I've heard this is one of only a few campgrounds in FL that is right on the beach. I would assume that this place is in a league of it's own as far as the "sardine" factor. Dave.

There are many beachfront campgrounds in Florida, and almost every one is similarly crowded. State and county parks have the largest camping spaces.

Fort Desoto in Pinelas County, Near St Petesburg, you are right on the water ,it is clean with lots of trees and does not resemble your pictures at all. It is probably the best near water campground that I have found in Florida and I recomend it to anyone and here is an online link for reservations and info.
