I do not travel or camp to be an hour from Disney.

I camp in areas of interest and beauty such as National Parks or nearby. There are plenty of others who just want to avoid Winter weather and park for months at a time. Most of them seem to want to congregate.

I would but not at that price. I might pay $20/night or so if there is lots of separation between the other campers.

I would say a definite maybe... Only two or three sites, how's security? One of the benefits of having many people around is, there are people around. If someone sees a couple individuals kicking in or prying open a door to the neighbors camper it will likely be stopped before the contents disappear. Only two campers sitting alone in the woods and nobody around things are gone and damage is done.

And ok. What if the private spot was much closer to the attractions? Closer than the KOA?
By all means location location location. I would even pay extra for being able to have a small fenced area for the Collies and a small yard.

In fact I've been looking at RV parks in/near Valdosta GA for a Seasonal spot. If I go to a area in Georgia/Florida area I plan on at least a month at a time. RV parks I've looked at were 450 to 475 a month. If they did not offer a monthly rate it wouldn't be as attractive.

Same thought, too expensive. There is a brand new rv park close by our family hideaway in NW Arkansas with only gravel sites , no sewer hu, & no tress. They want twice the SP nearby that is concrete & FHU. No brainer.

The price would be too high for me.

*Quiet, Private land holding only one or 2 other RVs, if any. You might have the whole thing to yourself.

*Full Hookups, but absolutely no facilities. Just your campsite.

*Within an hour (or even much less) of major destinations like the beach, Disney, a big city, or other attractions. Grocery stores close by too.

*Same price as a big, crowded campground with pools and neighbors packed in next to you. $50-$80 a night depending on location.

Basically, very private, relaxing camping instead of being in a small village of RVs with all the commotion and neighbors.



Please tell me why you would or wouldn't like this. If you'd use it or not.

Thank you!


An hour or so from Disney and you're getting comparable prices from the Fort Myers KOA. So that makes me think you're inland in Florida. Florida gets pretty rural pretty quick once you get off the coasts.

Rightly or wrongly... I couldn't justify $50-80/night for someone's private lot. If I'm staying on private property, I'm mentally expecting it to be a deal. The $25-30/night is more realistic.

I'd also want to know how cellular service is. Wifi or not, I still want my phone and personal hotspots to work.

If I were in the market for this type of camping location I would choose to use Harvest Host
