I'm looking for recommendations for RV parks in central Florida, near either the gulf or Atlantic coasts, for the winter of 2020. We've escaped the midwest winters in the Panhandle the last few years and have been lucky with the weather, but looking to go further south next year to be sure to get some warm weather. We're used to the Florida State Park difficult reservation routine and haven't been able to get any state park reservations yet. So we're looking at private parks, but most seem to be full of permanent park models, or asking for commitments of 1 to 3 months. We'd like to stay 2 weeks on each coast to check them out. Our preferences are as follows: within about 45 minutes of a public beach, with water and electric hookups at least, and good AT&T cell reception. I have a liberal definition of central Florida: north of Naples & Miami, and south of Ocala. We have a 34' fifth wheel. We know we will pay a hefty price, but are willing to do so to get out of the snow! Thanks!

Slim to none. There very few campgrounds on the water.

The state parks have two week limit and are hard to book.

Beverly Beach Camptown, North Beach don’t do monthly.

Manatee Hammock in Titusville, a county Park is nice, on the ICW, and do monthly’s if they have openings.

St Augustine has Bryan Mawr on the ocean. Tight and pricey. St. Aug has many RV parks.

Jonh Prince in West Palm Beach is on a lake and does monthly’s.

Florida is getting tough for RVs in the winter.

Blueberry Hill in Bushnell but don't stay there when we want to go because they can fill up. Red Oak is just across the street.

You can get on the waiting list here at Olde Mill Stream RV Resort in Umatilla or hope there is a cancellation. Things change for people all the time so you might get lucky.

Thanks everyone for the great suggestions. I am very impressed. They are consistently good parks: when I checked them on the campgroundreviews website, they all have very good to excellent rating. I will be phoning them to see what options we have.

I'll second Rock Crusher in Crystal River. It's a bit inland so the noseeums aren't a big problem closer to the water. They don't question the length of your stay. There are several folks currently in the park that don't plan to return for various reasons. You might check now because it's only going to get more crowded by waiting.

Thanks! Rock Crusher does look like an interesting option. Lots of public lands in the area to enjoy nature. We made a reservation at Timberlane for part of our time, but I will check out Rock Crusher for part of our stay.

We love Royal Coachman RV Resort in Nokomis, FL (Gulf side). Love the park and love the area it's in. We spent 2 weeks in December 2017 and then 1 month in December 2018.
