Bobby Cornwell

Bobby Cornwell, president and CEO of the Florida Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (Florida ARVC), released a list late Wednesday (Oct. 17) of their member parks that are open after Hurricane Michael passed through the area last week.

He mentioned to WOODALLSCM.com that the Florida ARVC offices just saw power come back on Wednesday afternoon.

“We were without power for a whole week,” he said in an email. “I have been trying to gather data from parks hit by the hurricane. It’s not easy. I do know all the parks west of Panama City and all the RV parks east of Tallahassee, including those in Tallahassee, are open, but availability is very limited. I’m trying to get updates from our members in the hard hit areas of Panama City, Mexico Beach and Marianna. It’s not looking good in those areas.”
