    We are traveling on September 29 for an arrival at Fort Wilderness on September 30. Does anyone have suggestions on where to stay traveling from NC to FL?

    What time of day are you leaving NC, HodgesMom3?

    It makes a difference if you have 4 hours driving time that first day or 8 hours. Let us know and that will give us an idea where you will be when it's time to stop for the night.

    We will hopefully be leaving early that morning with at least 8 hours driving if not more. We were debating on staying close to Savannah or if we need to go further.

    We travel from SC and stay at a KOA in Kingsland Ga. It is right off I 95 but far away enough to be quiet. Fuel and food not too far away. Easy on to I 95 and about 3 1/2 hours from FWCG.

    I have stayed at Jacksonville North KOA twice now (less than 1 mile from FL border just off I-95)… St. Mary's KOA I think they call it....easy pull through without having to unhook for the night...

    Here's another vote for St. Mary's KOA. They even throw in free breakfast to boot!

    Anyone stay at the Jacksonville North KOA in the last year? The reviews all look good up until 2017 seems like the campground is going downhill

    We stayed there last September on our ill fated, tossed from FWCG by Irene trip. Looked fine to me but we pulled in, had dinner, crashed and left the next morning so amenities didn't mean much to us. It is very easy to get in and out of and has large sites.

    I stayed last month, but it was literally pull in at 8 PM, hook up water/electric, and go to sleep...get up next morning and out by 8....was very good as a stop over for the night....as a place to stay for more than that, I cannot comment...both my times there were quick overnights....

    We sayed there last October (and will again tomorrow). They had experienced quite a bt of damage from the hurricane in the form of downed trees/brances, and some surface water. But they were working very hard to clean up. Same nice people, good pull-throughs, clean facilities; your basic KOA.

    Ours will be just an overnight stay as well. Just really want a nice campground to stay at on the long trip down cause it’s a tiring drive with 3 kids who can’t get along on a 20 minute trip much less one over 10 hours.

    We have stayed at St. Mary's before and it is nice. We will stay there again when we can make it to FL again.

    Do you normally make reservations or do you just drop in?

    we always make a reservation, online. In our case it is the end of a 13 hr drive, would not want to have a spot. Just me.
