Eagles Roost RV Resort in Lake Park, Georgia

Eagles Roost RV Resort is a short distance off exit 5 at 5465 Mill Store Road in Lake Park, Georgia. It’s only 134 miles from our last stop but we like it so well it’s worth the extra miles to the next stop.

Camping under the Spanish moss covered tall oaks

Located just 5 miles from the Florida – Georgia Line it is a great jumping off point for any destination in Florida.

Why Eagles Roost? We like the tall old oaks that literally drip Spanish moss. Each site has a concrete pad that’s level and each is FHU – 30/50A, water and sewer connections. There is some distance between the sites and the Park is very easy to navigate.

Our “office” is all set up

There is a weekend Flea Market next door, a few outlet shops nearby and a Camper’s World just across the bridge over the Interstate.

Another reason we like the place is its nearness to good food at two places we really like. First is The Farmhouse Restaurant which offers some really good Southern food and their peach cobbler rates a quick 4 stars on our scoreboard.

If you enjoy Mexican food then you are in for a treat at the Rodeo Mexican Restaurant less than a half mile away. In addition to daily lunch (and Margarita!) specials, their menu offers some great combination plates that will make you think you have crossed the border.

Our next and last post of this 1,800+ mile RV Snowbird route will be after we settle into our New Port Richey Winter home to summarize the trip, tally our costs and add some thoughts about this route – but until then ….
