We arrived at Water’s Edge Motorcoach and RV Resort outside Okeechobee, Florida on Monday, December 1st.
We have been so lucky picking parks lately, and this one is no exception. Water’s Edge Motorcoach and RV Resort is situated right on the Rim Canal that encircles Lake Okeechobee, Florida’s largest lake. Lake Okeechobee (pronounced just like it’s spelled) means “Big Water” and is the 9th largest fresh water lake in the country behind the Great Lakes, Lake of the Woods (MN), Lliamna Lake (AK), and Lake Oahe (ND, SD). It comes in just ahead of #10 Lake Champlain (NY, VT).
The fishing should be decent and because that’s what Rick likes to do with his winter, it’s what I like too :) (more shopping time for me :))
It’s no secret that we froze last winter in the Crystal River area. It seemed the entire winter was chilly and rainy. I think there were a few nice days in there but not too many :)
Everyone told us that we had to be south of Tampa to stay warm, so that became my mission, long before last winter was complete :) I reserved our space at Water’s Edge 11 months ago!
We spent our first 2 winters as full-timers in Texas. Last winter and this, will be in Florida. The “master plan” is to spend the next 2 in the Southwest :) So to get a good comparison, we really needed to find a nice, warm place to call home this winter! That meant south of Tampa :)
We couldn’t be happier with our choice. This is a small park with only 30 sites which is exactly what we prefer. So far, everyone we’ve met has been very friendly.
We are 10 miles from the city of Okeechobee. Some might consider that a drawback. For us, it’s a plus. We prefer to be “out of town” so to speak. I think we found another “gem”!
We shall see how warm we stay this winter, but I have great expectations. It’s been around 80 +/- since we arrived. I think I can live with that :)
Thanks for stopping by.
