Many RV parks and campgrounds along northern Florida’s Gulf Coast are closing before Hurricane Michael hits the state.
“RV parks and campgrounds along the Coastal Region, from Destin to Cedar Key or from Santa Rosa County to Levy County, are having to heed emergency evacuation orders and are closing their parks until the hurricane passes,” said Bobby Cornwell, executive director of the Florida Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds. “Some RV Parks farther inland in the panhandle region may still be open. However, RVers and campers are advised to travel west of Pensacola or east of Madison to stay away from the storm’s path.”
Inland RV parks and campgrounds may be used to accommodate visitors and hurricane evacuees, however.
“Those seeking campground accommodations should have no trouble finding RV sites in Florida as the campgrounds in the northeast region, the center, and the southern parts of the state are far away from the storm path and are open for visitors and evacuees,” Cornwell said.
