Camping Next To Snowbirds
Never had I seen a trend in a campground, but this trip to southern Florida was our first time to rub elbows with what is affectionately called the ”Snow Birds”. We found it humorous since our plan was not to stay but a few days here at the Okeechobee KOA.
We quickly realized most of the sites in this KOA campground were full of campers that come down yearly to the nice warm climate verses snowy cold weather.
It is a good thing we like to talk to each other because it was the most unfriendly campground we have ever stayed in our fifteen years of camping in parks. Even though there were street signs, other signs on tree gave you a hint of where they were migrating.
By driving up to our camp site it was very clear we were in the short term area. The street our camp site was on was the most uneven and tightest compared to all the other streets. But that was ok, we understood, those that have paid for months verses days should have the level sites. There were defiantly communities and we were not one of ”them”. Maybe it was like being at the new school and not being in the click. How ever you describe being a snowbird, I was glad we were just passing through.
