Oh yes, the mud season, our fifth season of the year. I'll miss it too. We are in the middle of the state, between Killington and WRJ. The first and last days of our trips are usually long, so I am pretty sure we'll find a campground open somewhere in northern Virginia, along I81. We'll try to stay west of the big urban areas. Maybe even swing as far west as Bennington,NY.

There are some open near Winchester and stauton Va. On I81, and some on 66 or 64 which ever goes over to Fredericksburg.

Ft. Pickes campground is it - just made reservation for March 18-25, site A5. The rest of the time we'll go without reservations and visit places on the way down and back up.
Thank you all!

Don't miss visiting the Naval Air Museum at NAS Pensacola. Best in America plus you might catch the BlueAngels at home. March can be cold and windy here so dress accordingly. Plenty of surfishing, and the old Fort Pickens to explore. Downtown Pensacola has a terrific historical district (Old Seville) with some buildings from the 1700s. Plus an excellent restaurant, brew pub scene. Joe Patti seafood is a good stop for fresh gulf shrimp.

Pegleg Petes on the beach is a great eatery. Flounders a bit touristy but still good. If theweather and seas cooperate take a Dolphin cruise.

It matters not. It was still warmer than Newfoundland at the time. I will return in early December. SD

The Panhandle can be tricky in the shoulder seasons, it was twenty-seven degrees here in Pensacola two nights ago, but highs in the 70s are expected this weekend. You've already been given some excellent advice, but here are some reviews I did a while back for some Panhandle campgrounds:
Blue Angel Park - Perdido Bay, Florida
What A Difference A Month Makes (Gulf State Park, Alabama)
Blackwater River State Park and State Forest
Topsail and Grayton Beach State Parks - in Florida Panhandle

Thanks, Ray, great reviews. I definitely want to visit the Blackwater River S.F. There is a lot to see in the area.

We've tent-camped with our Boy Scout troop at Blackwater and at Topsail, both beautiful spots. They enjoyed canoeing the Blackwater River through the woods, and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico at Topsail.
We have reservations to take our ParkLiner to Topsail after Christmas, but we won't be doing any swimming in December.
