Florida Road Trip! The Journey... Day Three
Posted on August 29, 2011

Day three was a nose to the grindstone, pedal to the metal kind of day. We drove... and drove... and drove through the rest of Tennessee and Georgia and we finally stopped for the night in northern Florida.
We spent the night at the Florida Gateway Resort in Jasper, FL. This campground has a lot of potential, but it looks like it is a victim of bad timing and a bad economy. It is only about a year old and was designed to be a membership RV park. They do have plenty of RV spots available and the facilities are very nice. The common areas are well designed and they have a pool as well as a nice swimming pond with a beach and an outdoor kitchen area for the guests to use.
The RV sites are grass, but they are level and have full hookups. There are no trees in that area, so you will have no problem getting a satellite signal. If you don't have satellite, they do have several dishes set up and they have receiver boxes available. The plans in the brochure showed that premium sites like these would be available in the future:
They also have plans for a bigger pool and activity center, putt-putt golf and a go-kart track. The plans for the resort look awesome. I hope that once the economy takes off, the owners are able to turn their dream into a reality. If you are passing through Jasper and need a place to spend the night, Florida Gateway Resort is a nice campground to stay at.
We will be arriving at our destination shortly. We will catch up with you on that once our vacation is complete. Until then we will be back to our regularly scheduled programming.
