This morning was good. We got out of the RV park early and drove right over to Lazy Days for the water filter we'd ordered from Texas. It was there waiting for us just as they had promised. Bruce took it out and installed it right away to make sure it was the correct one. It was...it worked...end of problem. Well, we never really thought of this as much of a problem, just a small bump in the road. Squawmama, Donna, reminded us that we could have stayed and dry camped last night at the Camping World. We thought about it but it was just too hot. We wanted A/C even if it meant juggling things around because the park's electric was so overloaded the 50 amp breaker wouldn't hold. We used 30 amp. It was Ok.....it worked....end of problem.
We arrived here in Cocoa, Florida just before noon. We took the toll road over from Orlando because it was the fastest and easiest route. I think the tolls were about $11.00 for 47 miles. The RV park we selected was the Sonrise Palms Christian RV & Rally Park. We found it in the Trailer Life Directory. It is a Good Sam Park and a Passport America. It was the most reasonably priced park in the area that is the closest to the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral. (that we could find) We were met by a friendly and helpful woman in the office who handled our registration quickly.
Sonrise Palms is located a short distance off of I-95 (exit 201). It has 83 full hook-ups sites with 30 or 50 amp service. From our previous experiences in the area, this park is typical for an average RV park in Florida. It has nice grassy sites with small patios. There is plenty of room to extend slides on both side of your rig.
It also has a swimming pool and laundry room which were very nice and clean.
Our Good Sam rate here was $46.31 per night. We try not to spend that much on RV parks normally, but when you are in certain areas and want to see certain things....it is what it is! You either pay the rate or you move on. The Passport America program is only accepted from May to October. That is also typical for RV parks in Florida. You never get the deep discounts during the Snow Bird high season.
We will only be here for 2 nights. Then we head back toward the Orlando area to stay for a few nights at another membership park. I'll post a review on that after we get there. We have no plans to ever return to this part of Florida, but if we did, we would stay at Sonrise Palms again. It works.
