Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort is a beautiful resort, with many amenities. However, waking up our first morning there, all was not what it seemed. Even though there is a sign posted stating clearly that there is night time security, we soon learned from nearby RVers that during the night various vehicles had been broken into. Golf cart enclosures & motorcycle covers had been unzipped and several cargo trailers had been rifled through. Golf cart(s) were stolen, and even a car was stolen! They have a security gate at the entrance which is not being used for whatever reason. I also counted numerous golf carts parked at various sites with big signs that say 'Security' on them, but I haven't seen any of these security people riding around at night. I'm not sure if they are not doing their job, or if maybe the resort owners / managers don't pay them to patrol at night. I was also told that this is the third time in 12 months that this has happened, the last 2 times several RV's were broken into, some while the owners were inside, sleeping! As nice as Grand Lake is, I will not be staying here again unless I know that some security measures are being implemented. This is a very rural & somewhat isolated resort, and for it to have no security measures in force, as well as scarce street lighting is just asking for trouble. We camped at Grand Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I like this place. It feels like camping in the 'real Florida'. The jacuzzi is wonderful as are the shady sites. They need more golf cart rentals, though. I think they only have 3 or 4. We also stayed here in previous years, when they have the concerts. Trace Adkins, Travis Tritt. Will definitely stay again. We camped at Rock Crusher Canyon RV Resort in a Motorhome.
