TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds has identified campgrounds and RV parks with space available for Hurricane Florence evacuees.
“Most of Florida’s campgrounds and RV parks have availability at this time of year and are ready to accept evacuees,” said Bobby Cornwell, executive director of the Florida Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.
