Hey snowbirds! Don’t you just love the warm, tropical Florida air compared to the blowing snow and freezing temps of Michigan? We are envious of your yearly pilgrimages to sunnier weather, but it is quite a drive! Why not make an adventure out of your trip south and stop along the way to camp out? Check out these RV parks that are found midway to Florida on I-75! Unlike Waffle Houses that you’ll find at every exit along the way, there are a few campgrounds that we think you’ll enjoy!
