The one at Carrabelle Beach is "Carrabelle Beach RV Resort" and their web site is http://rvcoutdoors.com/carrabelle-beach/. It is relatively expensive and stays full most of the time.

I've stayed at Ho Hum dozens of times, but I no longer recommend it.
Good to see you guys...

I've stayed at Ho Hum dozens of times. I no longer recommend it, and here are the reasons:
1. Our very dear friends, Wade & Ginger Horne (as well as several others who preceded them), are no longer hosts at this park.
2. The park is not child-friendly, as stated above.

Good to see you guys...

Well, there it is from the horse's mouth. I knew you stayed there with your family.

The place was packed this weekend, but I sure would not want to stay there knowing this.

Looks like children aren't supposed to be banned. Interesting.

Now we can understand why people don't need to start new businesses. You will stay in laws suite hell until you lose your business. I stayed at Ho hum for 2 months last year and it was GREAT A+ in my book. There are other privately own RV parks in the area that cater to Families. Now Ho hum has one sorry low life that is going to stick these people in law suite hell. Homer Reid

It's a shame me that a person can't run his business the way he wants it. If he doesn't want kids he should be able to have no kids. What about adult only resorts?

Agree. From the article, the guy apparently does this for a living maybe. A "Fair Housing Act Tester". Had no intention of staying at the campground.
Why would you target an RV campground?

I have stayed at Ho Hum for a number of years now. It is sad when Camp Host you have known for years move on, but I have learned that they ALL move on eventually. The owner Mike runs the place like a business not like a club. He has lots of rules and charges more every year. One of his rules is no kids under 16.

It's my choice to stay there. The good far outweighs the bad for me, right now. That would change if I was to have a Grandkid that wanted to come and stay with me. Hoping for that one day. There are 2 other semi-waterfront RV parks in C-belle that I can choose from, and even more down the road a bit.

The dude in the article is just a professional rabble-rouser. He gets his jollies putting people thru the legal ringer. :smt011

Back to the OP's question. I did a similar thing on the coast a few years back and found its a lot simpler to stay as close as possible to where your camper is stored, assuming that is an area you feel good about fishing. SGI SP is a nice park but not very convenient
for fishing. St Joe State Park, on the other hand, has a great beach access and excellent boating facilities. I did pick up that it is a little further than you want to go. Hey, that's the advantage of having your camper. You are mobile and can determine your own location until you find what you like. I did that for several years and eventually bought a lot. Best decision I ever made.
People that catch a lot of fish fish a lot!
