Ho-Hum RV Park, Carrabelle, FL

Date of Stay:  Tuesday April 2 - Saturday April 6, 2013 (4 nights)

Rate:  $33/night

Website:  Ho-Hum RV Park
   2132 Highway 98 East
   Carrabelle, FL 32322

Description:  On the Gulf of the “Forgotten Coast”.  Pea gravel throughout this small park, all FHU 50A with some sites overlooking the water.  We were on site 4 and lucky that no one parked beside us on the patio side so that we had a good view of the water (a very small Toyota Class C did but we could easily see around them).  Tall mature pine trees in our half of the park.  A hurricane had taken out the trees in the other half.  Verizon internet spotty here although phone reception was ok.  Close sites.  Nice place to walk on the beach.  Fairly close to Apalachicola and St George Island.

Activities:  We stopped here on our way to Pensacola and glad we did.  We had made plans to stay on I-10 but decided to surprise Vel and Maggie who were staying here after leaving Cedar Key to visit family in Nebraska and their summer job in Iowa.  We all went to Apalachicola and St George Island for day trips.  I really enjoyed walking their dogs with them on the beach at this park.  One day, Sherry, David and their daughter Carrie came to visit since they were in a nearby state park.  Also one morning during my jog in a nearby neighborhood, I saw a big Black Bear trot across the road about a block and a half in front of me.  I slowed down.

Trash and Recycle:  No recycle.  Dumpster at corner of park has teeth/claw marks from area bears.

Rate:  $32/night (weekly rate, PPA and Good Sam helped)

Website:  Cedar Key RV Resort

   Cedar Key, FL 32625

Description:  Initially reviewed here.

Activities:  We stayed on site 74 in the back corner.  Dan and Tricia were on their lot but T left to go help her mom in NC since she had surgery. Gin was still under the weather during the first half of our stay here so I enjoyed a Rails-to-Trails bike ride with several of the regulars here.  We enjoyed a spaghetti dinner and several card games at the clubhouse.  Vel and Maggie (work campers) visited and Vel enjoyed Gin’s video games.
