For many, fall in Franklin county is the Best season.  Most fall (and winter) days are plenty warm enough for outdoor activities, and the evenings cool enough to require a fleece or sweatshirt.  Clear skies rule the forecast, and the humidity is lower than the steamy summer.   You can enjoy everything outside this fall without the cold weather gear!

#2: Campgrounds

Franklin County has beautiful campgrounds ranging from traditional to resort-style.  You won’t have to go far from your “RV home” to enjoy the best of the Forgotten Coast.  Our five private campgrounds embrace Gulf views and Gulf breezes while accommodating your furry pet friends.  And many feature docks, boat slips, pools, beach paths, and substantial amenities.
