FLORIDA TRIP - Homeward Bound – Townsend, GA -- Saturday, January 22, 2011

We decided yesterday that neither one of us was up for a 400 miles plus drive day, so we decided to come about half way today. Nancy mapped out a very scenic drive for at least half the journey. The rest of the drive was interstate – YUK!

We left Silver River State Park about 8:30 this morning. We drove Rt 314 and Rt 19 through The Ocala National Forest.
Pretty drive through The Ocala National Forrest

We made a quick stop at The Salt Springs Recreational Area and checked out the campground for future reference. It is one of the few state campgrounds with full hook-ups. The sites are close together, not really our cup of tea, but the location and recreation opportunities make it very attractive, not to mention the really reasonable rates.

After a stop for a bowl a cereal at the always welcome Wal-Mart parking lot (we can’t seem to find any little roadside rests or picnic areas on the roads down here), we drove the rest of the way to a little campground named Lake Harmony RV Park.

It is just ¼ mile off of I-95 about 40 miles south of Savannah, GA. The campground is nothing to rave about (a 5 on a 1-10 scale) but it does have full hook-ups so I can clean out and drain our holding tanks before we head home tomorrow. They do have free wifi so Nancy can get the blogs up-to-date on somebody else’s minutes!!

Well, tomorrow it is back to Murrells Inlet, SC – Home – for now!!


  1. Always the worst part of camping...the trip home. We always bum all the way home. But not forever!

    You had a great trip, loved the pictures. Springs coming and that brings house buyers! Keeping our fingers crossed for you and us! ;c)
