RVing is exciting and full of adventure - including finding unexpected wildlife - see the large iguana and alligator below, plus more great photos

Markham Park, Sunrise/Weston, Florida is a nice size county park, and the people in the office were very helpful and friendly. However, it is not just a campground, so when the park holds a special event, everyone entering the park, including RVers, wait in line to get into the park for an hour or more because so many locals participate in these special events. During those times, the two RV Gypsies do not leave the park unless they leave early morning and return late evening. Also since it is not just a campground, there are no activity buildings. The pool is open to the public but only open certain times of the year, and it costs on a daily basis to everyone, including RVers who are paying to camp or park at Markham Park. There is a nice dog park there, a target range (which can be heard in most motorhomes), a model airplane flying field, and a berm to hike on.

Iguana at Markham Park

family
On April 25, 2008, the two RV Gypsies left Markham Park and the extremely difficult task of saying "see you later' to their beloved children and grandchildren in order to travel full-time in their motorhome. However, Broward County Florida will be the winter destination for a few months each year so Karen & Lee can visit their family. Travel logs, history, and tons of pictures will be posted of their RV adventures under the "USA" - "Canada" - "Alaska" and "Photos" buttons above, so check back often. Remember that you can control the size of the photos on this website; to make the photos fit your monitor screen properly, see the instructions listed under the "Photos" button above. Thank you for visiting, and please keep returning.
