Hi Steve how are you? A couple of months back I helped someone who was requesting very similar information. Here is what I posted back then...

"I don't know if these are still active but check it out...

Stargazers of the Villages

Central Florida Astro Society

Greater Ocala Astronomy Club

Alachua Astronomy Club

MARS in Tampa

Winter Haven Astronomy Club

And lastly but not leastly...

Chiefland Astronomy Village

I personally have not visited any of these except for Chiefland Astronomy Village and I highly recommend a trip over there on a new moon weekend. Another place that a friend of mine likes to go to is Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park. He says the skies there are really good but I have never had a chance to visit. Hope this info helps.

Hi Steve, send me a PM. I live in New Hampshire but I visit my kids and grandkids in Davenport often. I would be happy to get together with you when I'm down there.

Look into CFAS and their dark sky sites in Harmony, Ocala, etc.
