2017 Florida RV Trip, Days 20-21, Time To Move Again

After a pretty busy week, Saturday was devoted to relaxing, nursing colds and getting ready to move about 200 miles north to the East Point, FL area – I know, we’re going in the wrong direction for winter but at least the temps are getting warmer since the dip of cold moved out.  With a 1pm checkout time and only a four hour drive, we were able to take our time and got on the road about 10:30 on Sun.

From Dunnellen, we took FL-40 and county 336 to get on US-98 which took us to the RV Resort just east East Point, FL.  The roads started out good but became just okay as US-98 is getting a little rough beginning in Chiefland and will need resurfacing soon.  Otherwise it was a pleasant drive, especially the last few miles along the water, and much less stressful than the interstate.
We pulled into Coastline RV Resort on Florida’s Forgotten Coast about 2:30 and I was very pleased with what we found.  Coastline is a 12 year old park with 31 sites with the first row being just across the road from the water.  The utilities all worked well and I was especially pleased with the 90 channel cable TV and their pretty good WiFi.  They also provided a comprehensive list of what to do, where to eat, where to buy fresh seafood, etc.  Here is our site and some shots around the park - entrance, office, clubhouse, and pool - right behind us.

This is the morning view from our patio and it was even better until someone occupied the site in front of us but still pretty nice.

I found this to be a very good park and would definitely stay here again, especially if you're looking for a piece of coastal Florida to just relax.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.


12/16-12/17/17 Event Dates


  1. Looks like a wonderful spot to camp on the coast I am sure you will enjoy your time there

  2. Larry, While Eastpoint isn't along the 'happening' portions of Florida's coasts, it's pretty and it's is a great place to get away from it all and relax a bit. The proximity to Apalachicola doesn't hurt any either. It is one of our favorite small out of the way towns in the USA. Merry Christmas to Ya'll! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave and Laurie

  3. Really nice place - but it sure doesn't look very Christmas-y. You could at least put a wreath on the Coach door, or reindeer ears on the doors - or one of these big inflatable Santas on the picnic pad. The clubhouse doesn't even have lights or anything. With that said, Merry Christmas to the Traveling Doolittles. :)

  4. Just stopping by to say MERRY CHRISTMAS. Hope you have a wonderful day today and always...

    I certainly am enjoying reading about your trip....
