We camped in our van for ten days at Williams Landing, east of Tallahassee, Florida, on Lake Talquin. It's a beautiful place, with hot showers. Our cost? Zero, and you can stay up to two weeks. There are free campgrounds scattered around country. Ask an RVer about this, or buy a Woodall's directory from any large RV dealer.
Note: Wal-mart seems to encourage campers, except in coastal areas where too many RVer's want to live in a parking lot. Don't roll out carpet and put out lawn furniture like one traveler we heard about, or you may ruin it for all. Some stay for a week at a time, going out all day to see sights (and so they don't wear out their welcome). Wal-mart gets business from campers, but they'll only continue their policy if they don't have problems, so keep it low-key.
To find a Wal-Mart in area you're traveling to, visit Walmart.com. Scroll down to "store finder" link to search. Thank you for camping at Wal-Mart!
