Probably Spring Break for some colleges too ?
I was told the SKP (Escapee) park in Wachula never turns anyone away. Was told their overflow has water & 20 amp service and a boondocks area if overflow is full. Also think they will allow non members for a short time. Norm & Ginny may be there now to help. There's lots of RV parks in Florida, finding one with space and no size, age, or minimum time stay can take some research.

Little Manatee River State Park is 16 miles from St. Pete and shows two open sites for tomorrow night.

Charles, certainly sorry to hear of this happening. If you were in SoCal you could park them here for what ever time needed, I've got plenty of room. Sure hope one of our members in your area can step up and help out.

If all else fails you could try and talk with the Social Worker at the hospital they may be able to pull some strings for you.

Most hospitals have local clergy that visit patients. Most clergy have a house of worship that's got open parking most of the week. Doesn't hurt to ask. Raz

There really is a lot of space available in FL this month. Many people have headed home for Easter (early this year). You should be able to find a place to stay. As was suggested we have space in our Escapee Park but it's a fair ride from St. Pete.

I'm personally not familiar with St. Pete Campgrounds but I'm sure St. Pete has a visitor's center. Go there and ask them to suggest a couple of local campgrounds.

There's a Moose Lodge about 5 blocks from me. They also allow overnight RVs. If they Elks can't help, perhaps the Moose can if there's a lodge close by to your needs.

If you haven't found a solution yet, take a look at towns a little north of you - Hudson for example.

There were always empty spaces at some of the older campgrounds in that area and the rates were a whole lot less than St. Petes.

Hudson is about an hours drive north of St. Petes so it's a whole lot closer than something inland where you have to come through Tampa.

Just an FYI, next weekend is race weekend in Sebring Florida and this is also March break for Ontario Canada schools. You may have to try further south or north of St Pete. or just try a very cheap motel and sleep in your RV, just use the shower/toilet in the motel.

Let us know sometime what you located. And our sympathies to all your family members in this difficult time, especially to the wife of the afflicted gentleman.

If you're willing to drive as far north as Hudson, try Seven Oaks..an older park, nice folks and a very good swimming pool.
