My wife and I are looking to bring our class A motorhome to Florida and leave it at a nice park that has reasonable yearly rates, preferably near Gulf side or central Florida. We'd then drive down from Ohio to spend a couple months during the winter. Ideally we'd like a park with lots of activities. Any suggestions? Thanks.
In the past I would have suggested the Recreation Plantation near the Villages, but that doesn't seem to work, as each time it happens they end up buying a place at the Villages. It is a really nice 55+ park with lots of activities.

I started with nothing and I still have most of it left
I never fail, I just succeed in finding out what doesn't work
It all in what you want to spend. Seems like there are four zones of pricing during the Winter months. A few miles North of Orlando is lower pricing, but colder weather, Orlando to both coasts is higher but a little warmer. South of Orlando, say Winter Haven and coast to coast more money but warm. Then Bradenton, coast to coast all the way down, lots more money. I've seen places in that section of Florida that charge a high price but are not fancy, but it is the location. Key West is in the $2,000 and up a month.
Search the web, find a place, search the reviews, see if they have what your looking for then go for it. When your there, if satisfied, good, if not, drive around and find a place for next Winter.
A place North of Orlando that I have been, really has a lot to offer but when a cold snap hits it is about 10 degrees colder than below Orlando is the Wilderness Rv Resort in Silver Springs (Ocala area), check it out. Another place in Winter Haven, Fl is the Cypress Gardens Rv Resort, smaller the the above mentioned place but nice and next door to a Super Wal-Mart, very handy, but it is more money and they just raised the price for this coming Winter.
In my opinion you can not beat WILDERNESS RV PARK near ocala and silver springs. look it up and the rates are great and its right on the clearest river you will ever see (just a couple miles downstream from silversprings). check it out on the web
If you're only going to be there a couple of months you could put your coach in storage and only pay resort rates while you're there.
