I was in Panama City Beach last year and stayed at the Panama City Beach Resort. They had very little damage at the resort. Panama City isn't too bad. Surrounding areas are devastated But as you drive there you will still see the damage. It will be years before that area recovers. Destin and points west did not have damage.

St Andrews park in Panama City Beach about 200 sites had 30 open last march.

Good luck on your travels! Nice thing about an rv if you don't like where you're at you just move.

We are leaving Orlando on the 31st and headed to Gulf Shores State Park for a week and then the Escapee park in nearby Summerdale for another week before moving West. Fell in love with this Gulf Shores area last year when we visited in November. Jan-Mar are the busiest months for the snowbird parks. I make some reservations but also fill in with spontaneous stops along the way. You've always got your RV, so not finding an official campsite for a night or two isn't the end of the world, might even save a few $ in the process.

The Mrs. made reservations for us at an RV park called "Bee's RV Resort" in Clermont Florida. She feels better having a reservation. Will keep the board informed how our travels go, nothing is written in stone.

Why would you go to Clermont if your intent is to head west? Or have you changed your mind on that?

Yes, we did change our plans.

Left home (suburb of Detroit area) Thursday morning, spent that night in a Cracker Barrel parking lot near Nashville. Next day drove through very heavy rain and spent the night in a rest area near Greenville AL. Drove on to Robertsdale AL, spending six days in a campground here, then it's on to Clermont FL for two weeks, possibly longer. Having a good time.

Sounds good. You might be able to get in at Cypress CG at Winter Haven https://www.cypresscampground.com/ for a month or more. Decent area, next door to Walmart, all other services nearby and warm in winter.

This may be a little off topic but here goes...
Almost every campground I try to find anything about in Florida has affiliated itself with Sun Resorts and no longer handle their own reservations. That's been a problem for me. Has anyone else had this experience and if so, how do find anything out about a park you nothing about before making reservations?
