Where I stayed
Yogi Bear's Jellystone park Madison
Bit of a major with the truck this morning - Fred took it to the Dodge dealer in Tampa and it needed new brake callipers...US$700 later...not fun. After the truck was done we pretty much drove straight through to Madison, FL to a Yogi Bear Jellystone Park http://www.jellystoneflorida.com/. This was a pretty cool campground, with a 60 ft waterslide - which was unfortunately closed, but Josh & Kate said they didn't want to go on anyway. There was a mini golf course and we got a site right by the lake - though Fred had to do some manoeuvring to get the 5th Wheel between some big trees & someone's car! Lots of ants & bugs would be our biggest complaint and these ants aren't like New Zealand ants - they bite! I took the kids for a swim in the swimming lake, and they really enjoyed sliding down a little slide already in the lake - so it saved us $8 per kid to go on the big slide anyway!
