It is always nice when a RV park’s name fits what it offers. Nature’s Resort RV Park in Homosassa, Fla., is a perfect example of that, as any park that is renowned for its waterfront, complete with daily manatee and dolphin sightings, doesn’t need to overthink it. Customers know it is a place where fun abounds on the Gulf Coast and you can escape the hustle and bustle of central Florida.
Time is running out to register for the virtual 2020 Outdoor Hospitality Conference and Expo (OHCE) hosted by the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds’ (ARVC). The deadline to register is October 28.
