Mill Creek RV Resort
We enjoyed a restful night at the Florida rest area on Interstate 75, mile-marker 346, near Ocala, Florida. Now we will head to Kissimmee, Florida to spend the weekend while we visit with two of my cousins that I haven’t seen for about 20 years.
But first, we have to find a place to stay! Staying true to our traveling lifestyle, we do not reserve campsites in advance. We prefer not to be constrained to be at a certain place by a certain time. In our 25 years of enjoying the RV lifestyle, we have always been successful in securing a campsite without a reservation.
While in route to Kissimmee, Florida, "Navigator Sharon" consulted our Allstays Camp and RV app on my Android LG G4 smartphone. The app provided numerous private campgrounds within the Kissimmee area. Further research showed the Mill Creek RV Resort offered a special daily rate of $19.00 through December 21st. Their regular rate is $36.00 per day. Upon our arrival at the Mill Creek RV Resort, they honored the $19.00 daily rate. This will be our home for the weekend.
Mill Creek RV Resort offers accommodations for all ages. It is a mix of permanent trailer structures, travel trailers and motorhomes for permanent residents. The remaining campsites are available for Snow Birds. The resort is typical of private campgrounds; closely spaced campsites that offer minimal privacy. As much as we dislike private campgrounds, the price is right while we use this as our base camp while we visit my cousins in the area.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
