It's a good time to go, if you have somewhere to go that is not crowded and open.
It's probably a excellent time to boondock.

With so many places being closed it is hard to say whether a trip would be fun or not. Other than that, it is fairly easy to maintain your distance away from other people as you travel, especially if you plan to camp in an isolated area and remain self sufficient. Some National and State Parks are closed and some are partially closed. In Florida the State Parks are open but not for overnight stays. I guess it depends on what you plan to do during a trip. As mentioned the roads may not be crowded(probably will be more trucks than normal) and fuel is less expensive. Check to make sure you will have a place to park and go for it.

If the trip includes touristy things it's probably not a good idea .
On the other hand if you just like going and can be happy sitting
outside reading , napping or walking yeah I think it is a great time .
We have been thinking about it too .

All state parks in Florida are closed and Jetty Park campground in Cape Canaveral is closed until April 30th. You might have trouble finding a place to stay. I am assuming private RV parks will still be open.

I did all of my tripping when I was young.
Now I just travel around.

I would not plan on any government operated park to remain open; local, state, federal, or COE. Just got an email that my reservation at a COE has been canceled as they are closed until further notice.

It would not be recommended to travel among others if from a state with high coronavirus contamination such as WA, CA, NY, et. al. areas; regardless the low prices to travel. We already have a patient in out area that travel from WA where they contacted the virus. The purpose of limiting travel, gatherings and social distancing is to stop the spread of the virus until there is someway to medically treat it.

Our area is closed to all outsiders except property owners and necessary employees and insiders are limited in travel also.

Those who would risk spreading a serious and deadly virus among the population for the love of pleasure and travel need to rethink their priorities.
