Floridian peoples interested in camping at somewhere other than the Fort on a holiday

I am calling tomorrow to make reservations at Jetty Park for Memorial Day to see how the park is and to try to save money this year. I love Fort Wilderness, but I need to save some money with not having my coaching money this summer and medical bills from last year, so we are going to try some state parks. I just can't afford over $100 a night at the Fort on holiday weekends. I would love to meet up with some DIS Florida people if you would like to go. According to the website, it is $37 a night plus a $2 reservation fee.

(Thanks Pete for the web info, I have been working on my website)

I know that I have talked to some of you on chat already about this, so I promised I would get the information together.

I spoke to you when I met you over Halloween weekend (it was q quick hi) I would be interested. We usually go to Crystal River but again for the weekend it will run $300 - 400. Do you know if there is a place to put a 26ft deck boat in for the weekend, we could try and bring it. We have put it in the water with the MH but I would perfer not to, so if someone was coming with a truck they could put it in, we can fit about 13 people on it.

I wouldn't put your motorhome in the water, they don't float so well. Where do you camp at Crystal River?

If we go swimming in the ocean, will sharks bite us?

That's what I am afraid of, I have a vision of putting the boat in the water with the MH and both floating down the river. We have done it but I am not happy, my DH says there is nothing to worry about!!
We go to Crystal Isles, we had our MH there all last summer, We love the river, but the CG only has 37 sites with boat docks, so if you don't have a dock you have to pull the boat out every time you come in, there is no room to leave it in the water even for 1 hr.
Last year the asst manager let us rent one of the CG docks for the time we were there, but she is no longer there.

You can borrow my truck, however I suck at driving it.

Before Jen posted this I was also looking at Jetty Park. I know it's a good central location but wondered if anybody was interested in this as well.

www.musicliveshere.com

I've gone to this place quite a few times. It's cart friendly. gas and electric but the gas ones can't go over 15 I think it is. We had about 30 adults/kids on 4 sites. One site had tents only. It's located near the I-75/I-10 intersection. I'm not trying to change things up, just wanted to put another option on the board.

The park is the same size as the fort and is on the Suwannee River. You can canoe, kayak and ride carts. Jen, I'll tow you lol. There's a few hills that slow the carts down and you will have a hard time on them.

Hopefully if my website picks up, I can rewire the thing...

I am going to call and see what they have available at Jetty Park tomorrow...if they are full, I am all for going up there...hell, it is halfway to Auburn and my nephew!

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, no carts at Jetty Park. That stinks. I don't see any trees either for shade. I love all you guys but I may be at Spirit of the Suwannee MDW. This place is pretty close to the fort except there's not a theme park across the lake. Let me know what ya'll decide.
