Mt Dora Florida

Yes, we made it to Mount Dora last Tuesday.  We are staying at the Woods-n-Water Rv Park.....well sort of.....we are actually staying on the owner of the park's property.  He has two sites available for short term stays.  It is very nice here, but the set up is a little tricky.  We had some tight turns and a couple of low branches to get by and then we found that the fifty amp box was at the front of the site instead of the back.  Our cord would not we just used the 30 amp which is at the back of the site.  We also had water and sewer.  The actual park is located right next door which their daughter manages.  There are very few sites available to rent...most of the park is full time residences. sure and call ahead if you think you might want to check this place out.  The folks here are super nice and will make every effort to accommodate your needs.
 Here we are tucked back against the trees with the lake to the right.  We did get our direct tv up and running without a problem and our verizon card had 4g service available.  There is no cable or internet service available through the park.
 The "Cranes" also came by to welcome us.....LOL!

Yesterday we took an evening stroll through downtown Mt Dora.  If you have never been to this quaint little town, I encourage you to put it on your list.....especially at Christmas time.  They go all out lighting up the town is beautiful......carriage shops and nice restaurants....plenty of unique little shops to visit too!  I'm sorry I didn't bring my camera last night.  
Today we are heading over to Tampa.....looking forward to seeing more family and friends. 


  1. Quite a unique parking spot. And I love small towns like that. Have fun visiting.

  2. We are just North of you at Georgetown! If you are in the area for any amount of time, you may want to consider this area, you're on the lake and peace and quiet abound!

    We love this area because we are only 30 miles from Palatka, (Big Stores Town) and 50 from St. Augustine beaches...(notorious shell pickers and historians).

    Have fun in Tampa, a great place to visit, but a bit crazy for traffic!

  3. We loved Mount Dora too... Glad your enjoying yourselves.
    Have fun & Travel safe

  4. How long are you going to be in FL? We're hoping to host a lunch in Lakeland sometime in Jan. It would be great to meet finally!!

  5. We used to live in Minneola, FL off HWY 27 and close to the Busy Bee RV park. yes, Mt Dora is a hidden gem. A wonderful town with fabulous shops!
