Cedar Key RV Resort, Cedar Key, FL

Date of Stay:  Thursday September 20 - Sunday September 30, 2012 (10 nights)

Rate:  $28/night (weekly rate then Good Sam and PPA)

Website:  Cedar Key RV Resort
   11980 SW Shiloh Road
   Cedar Key, FL 32625

Description:  About 85 FHU sites all with concrete pads and patios.  Paved roads.  Some sites have shade trees and some don’t.  Average lot size is 45’x80’.  We stayed on site 55 which is a pull-thru.  Nice clubhouse with full kitchen and laundry facilities.  Informal varied activities such as weekly pot luck dinners and card games.  Nice swimming pool will be heated starting in Fall 2013.  About 6 miles from the fishing village of Cedar Key.  Very laid back atmosphere.

Activities:  Our good friends Dan and Tricia bought a lot here last year and had come down to do some landscaping.  Since it was Dan’s 50th birthday, we wanted to surprise him and make sure he took a break.  We enjoyed the pool and getting to know Cliff and Connie, the park managers.  The town of Cedar Key has no fast food joints or major stores.  Dollar General is real close to the park and a small produce stand and small grocery is in town.  Chiefland is about 19 miles away as far as restocking the cupboards go.

Trash and Recycle:  Leave your trash bag at your site and it will be picked up or you can drop it in the dumpster on your way out.  No recycling in the park but Levy county has a recycle bin that accepts everything conveniently located on the right side of the road about half way to Cedar Key (corner of Hwy 24 and 347).

Walkabout Camp and RV Park, Woodbine, GA

Date of Stay:  Wednesday September 19, 2012 (1 night)

Rate:  $18/night (PPA discount)

Website:  Walkabout Camp and RV Park
   742 Old Still Road
   Woodbine, GA 31569

Description:  Close to the Florida state line and I-95, it’s a great stopover on our way south.  Gravel roads and parking pads with FHU.  Laundry in the clubhouse and propane sales on property..  Owners have been here since Spring of 2011 and are a young Australian family that lives in the house on the property.  Pet duck, goose and chickens walkabout the camp.  We were on site A14.  They are all pull-thrus and kinda close together but fine for an overnight.  No traffic noise.

Activities:  It was hot so we enjoyed a swim in the pool.  Also played pool in the clubhouse.  I saw 4-5 wild turkeys on my morning walk.  There is an abandoned housing development (just roads, no houses) next door so it’s a good place to jog. 

Trash and Recycle:  A couple of dumpsters and a recycle can at the dumpster.

Rate: $500/month (includes electricity)

Description:  Reviewed earlier here.  We stayed on site P32 which is on the end of the row for about 3 weeks and then moved to site P24 which is on the end of a row and has a gazebo.  We enjoyed the shade.

Activities: This RV Park is all about location.  It is close to our family so this will always be our home base when we visit.  We enjoyed the pool some this time.  Gin had an appointment to get some new glasses but that didn’t pan out.  We stayed a few extra days to visit with Bill, Nancy and her Mom as they stopped here for the night on their way to Philadelphia.
