Welcome to the FL SKP website dedicated to sharing information and caring for our members, perspective members and visitors.
We are doing some exciting things at the Florida SKP Co-op! We have a beautiful park with lots of amenities that we truly wish to share. Our park is relatively small with 127 sites, plus overflow and boon docking. It is a wonderfully green park with open grassy common areas, lots of palm trees and spacious RV sites. Our park is in the town of Wauchula, which has been designated a “Main Street Community”. Wauchula was settled as far back as 1840. The town was developed around the Florida Southern Railway track built in 1886. The town has thrived over the years. The name “Wauchula”, is a derivation of the Miccosukee Indian word, (wa-tu-la-ha-kee), meaning “call of the Sand Hill Crane”. For the past two (2) years we have had Sand Hill Cranes nesting in our retention pond; so when you’re in the park, listen for the call of the cranes.
The Waiting List posted on the "Waiting List" tab is now current. Anyone wishing to have their name added to The Resort's Waiting List will find the necessary application document on the "Wait List application download" tab. You can download this doc, fill it out completely and return to the address at the top of the page with the two necessary checks and a copy of your Escapees Membership Card.
This is a co-op park and therefore everything we do is done by VOLUNTEERS. Members and guests alike are encouraged to contribute their talents and efforts to the development of "our little piece of paradise".
