Check the Trailer Life campground directory. If the campground advertises that staff speak French, they cater to folks from Quebec. There are at least 2 campgrounds in Port Charlotte/Arcadia Florida that solicit French-speaking people.

And there is another one not far from there that we stayed at about 8 years ago. I'll have to dig through our old pictures to find it but it was predominantly french language and I believe the owners were able to converse in french as well (although the office staff were latino.) I'll try and dig it up in a couple of days. We are on the road tomorrow. I didn't speak spanish at the time but it was a great work out for my french.

On edit, Angela says it was north of Orlando.

My best friend is French/Canadian. He's retired military and a veteran of Iraq & Afganistan, so it's difficult to impress him.
The only time I saw him have a true look of suprise was when I took him on a bicycle tour thru "Little Haiti" in Ft. Myers. He nearly fell off of his bike when he heard French being spoken by a big black woman on her front porch.
