Roadrunner Campsites in March 2016

In March, we covered some territory.  We had a couple of goals during the winter -- see a lot of Florida (particularly on the lower east coast and also spent time with friends near Fort Myers.

 A - Macon Area Habitat for Humanity
The beginning of the month found as in Macon, Georgia participating in a Habitat for Humanity build along with other RVers who are part of the Care-A-Vanner program.  Macon HFH has a very nice set up for RVers.
 B - Starke, FL KOA
We looked for a place in Florida near Green Cove Springs to camp.  Most State parks were full since it was still in the peak time of the snowbird season.  We decided on Starke Florida which turned out to be a nice place for a few days.  It was only about 30 miles away from the mail service center in Green Cove Springs that we wanted to check out.
Here is another campsite I thought I had a picture of.  I wonder which camera I took this one with?  Hm...

C - Word of Life Camp, Hudson, FL
We heard of the Word of Life Camp from our friends Bob and Patty.  They stayed there and like it alot.  While we were at the Tampa RV show in January, we went by a booth where we picked up more information.  We stayed there for an entire week.
First timers get a great no-cost deal but the regular rate is $59/night which we is more that we would have paid.  
I thought I got a picture of our campsite.  It might be somewhere but I was not able to locate it..

D - Savannas Recreation Area Campground, Port St. Lucie, FL
This place was a gem.  It was our first time in a county campground in Florida and we liked what we saw!  It had full hookups as opposed to the state parks that usually only have a dump station.
The folks were friendly and we met a nice young couple from Quebec that we will remember.  They drove a Westfalia camper van similar to the one we had years ago.  But they significantly modified theirs.

E - John Prince Campground, Palm Beach County, FL
While in Hudson FL, we were told about this campground and decided to rearrange some plans in order to stay here.  It was very nice with a large and well developed area.  The county park was very active and had lots of winter visitors.
It was near lots of rivers and canals and great bike paths.  We would definitely stay here again.  We took a number of day trips up and down highway A1A.  We saw Vero Beach and Ft. Lauderdale and North Palm Beach and Jupiter and drove by a lot of posh neighborhoods of the rich and famous.

Habitat for Humanity, North Fort Myers, FL
This campground can only accommodate 4 rigs well.  We had five in there for a while which worked out OK.  One Care-A-Vanner decided he needed to move to a spot for a clear shot on his satellite TV dish.   For the smaller rigs it was fine, the larger ones took a little bit of maneuvering to get into place.
We loved seeing the different places during the month and especially seeing our friends in Fort Myers and getting to join them on a Habitat build.

Thanks for checking in with us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
