Fewer Snowbirds May Be Flocking to Florida

SEBRING - Reservations for seasonal rentals are lagging behind last year, which indicates the strong possibility that fewer snowbirds might come to Highlands County this winter.

Warren Wolfe, five-year owner of Woody's RV Resort, needs almost all his fingers and toes to count the number of prospective vacancies.

Most campers at the 110-site RV park reserve a spot a year in advance. At this time last year, almost every camp site was reserved for the upcoming winter season, which at Woody's, runs from November through the end of April.

Wolfe pointed to a map hanging in the community's office, with about 30 vacant spaces marked in red.

Celia Falk, of RV Park Adelaide Shores RV Resort, told a different story. She said early reservations are the best ever, while June Castellon, manager at Grove RV Park, mentioned another change.

The park can host up to 115 campers, and most sites are already reserved for the season at Sebring Grove. After considering gas costs and the mileage of RVs, several more snowbirds in Sebring left their campers this summer at Grove RV Park, said Falk.
