We store our camper at Sugar Mill Ruins Travel Park in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. We absolutely LOVE this park. Their sites are all tree-covered, spacious, and clean. The campground offers a private fishing lake, a nice pool, tiki bar, and daily events like aerobics or family-movies by the pool. The bathrooms are clean, and there are multiple showers.
Their drink prices are $1.25 for wine or draft beer at the tiki bar, which is unbeatable. They also have ice cream for $1.25 a cone, or $1.50 for double-scoop. The general store is affordable, so we usually buy our ice there on the way to the beach 🙂
The roads are not paved, which makes it much cooler to sit outside, and the staff is beyond helpful. Overall, we love this campground, and plan on making this our home-base at some point.
The beach in New Smyrna is unique because you can actually drive on it. We can load our car full of beach chairs, umbrellas, a grill, towels, and cooler. This removes the need to lug our stuff for a half mile through the sand, and it allows you to easily cook on the beach. The parking fee for the beach is $10 per day or $100 per year, which is very reasonable. Don’t forget to carpool!
Overall, I would highly recommend staying in this campground. They allow tent-camping as well, and we have seen some really awesome pop-ups. They also provide storage for your camper on-site for $38 per month.
