As others have commented, the sites are a bit close together. However, the park is clean and well mintained. There are a few, but only a few, junky full time residents. Most of the full time residents take pride in their piece of the property. The big advantage is that it is close to Disney and to the fun of Old Town Kissimmee. Wifi is available for free for Brighthouse customers; there is a charge for others. Or use your Verizon data card. There is good cellular service. The laundry is nice and there are plenty of recreation activities here on the grounds. We will be back the next time we are in this area.

As the park website notes, the restrooms and pool are closed for major renovation. Not a problem for me, but anyone stopping here needs to be fairly self-contained. That caveat, this is a good, basic place for a stop over. The sites are grass and fairly level. We had good wifi, good power, and good water pressure. The owner was very helpful and friendly. One more caution - if you use Passport America, it is cash only. For other types of transactions you can use credit card. As often as we travel I-10, it is good to have a safe place to stop. We will be back.

The office team was friendly during check in. We did have a problem with our water hookup, but the maintenance team responded very quickly and soon had the problem resolved. What they could not do anything about was the very low water pressure. The grounds were attractive, even after all the rain they had recently had. The biggest drawback was the sites were so tight. I literally could not open my awnings because they would have touched the RV next to me. I could not even walk around my motorhome without going onto my neighbor's site because the vegetation separating sites was jammed up against the side of my motorhome. It was a place to park. An expensive place to park. I am not sure I will be back, even with the friendly folks on staff.

Yes, as others have noted, the noise of the trains and I-95 is a bit of an annoyance if you are outside. We didn't really notice the noise that much inside our motorhome. The narrow roads were more of a problem. I was scraping bushes going to my site and leaving. Unlike what others said, there was wifi at our site that was actually pretty good. Overall, this was a pleasant place to stay. The grounds were well maintained and very attractive. I would stay here again.

Park staff was very friendly, and the more permanent residents were also friendly and welcoming. Nice level sites, and they parked us to give us as much room as possible between rigs. The campground as a whole was very clean and well cared for. We do not have young children, so no problem for us, but there did not appear to be a kids playground. On the downside, the wifi was very slow. And the morning of our departure (admittedly a cold morning), we had power problems that tripped our inverter low voltage protection. Power could be an issue on very hot or very cold days when everyone is using a lot of current. Still, for us the pluses outweighed the minuses. We would stay here again.

The park was formerly a KOA and it shows. It also shows that the park was closed for 2 years. However, the new owner is working hard to upgrade things. The camp hosts were very friendly and helpful. I have seen the positive changes in this park in just the month between my first visit and this one (my second). It is currently a good overnight stop, very convenient to I-10, and soon it will also be a good destination. Good wifi. My first site was a bit more level than this one, but neither was particularly bad. I will be staying here again - and I look forward to watching this place blossom.

Like some others, I originally tried to stay at Oakes and Pines (the old name) but they never returned my call. I came here as a second choice this time, but it won't be second next time. Very friendly staff. They insist on using boards under your leveling jacks, but they even provide the boards for you to use. Fair enough. We got here in between rain showers, and although everything was wet (of course), it wasn't soggy. Wifi was slow but adequate. Overall, a good one night stay. We will stay here again the next time we are traveling on this part of I-10.

     

I-35 RV Park

The park is well cared for. Sites are gravel and some are shaded. The staff was very friendly.

Date of Stay:

Very friendly staff. Several times while I was walking my dog I observed security driving through the park. That is good. Site are a little close together but still nice.

Date of Stay:

You are literally in a cornfield on the river. All sites are grass. However, you have full hookups, and the wifi is pretty fair considering what you find at most RV parks. The owners are very friendly and helpful and they do try to keep the placing looking nice. There are actually 2 areas. One up on the hill has more resort type amenities. We stayed in the lower area on the river so we could watch barges on the Ohio River. Both are nice. It's a great place to get away from it all.

Date of Stay:

This was our third stay at the park. Each time, the owners have gone out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. The sites are all grass/gravel, and the roads are only okay. But the recreational facilities are fine. They obviously work to make this a family-friendly park. Even though we don't have small children, we did not feel out of place. Still, for us, it is the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners that really sells the place. The only real downside, and this has been the case in our two previous trips as well, is the Wi-Fi is very weak and frequently unavailable. For reliable Internet connection, I had to depend on my MiFi. Fortunately, there is very good cellular coverage so close to the Interstate.

We have stayed here several times. First the good. It is very convenient to i-75 and to restaurants and shopping. That is why we stop here so often. However, we have seen it go steadily downhill and I think this may have been our last stop. Sites are getting more and more run down. There are lots of people who live here full time and they are not very welcoming of visitors. The 50 amp service did not work properly in our site. I had to let the water run at least 30 seconds before the rust cleared enough that I could hook up my water line. We were right next to the wifi antenna, but the wifi connection was so very slow that SpeedTest could not even get a reading. Needless to say, text based email was glacially slow, and anything with a lot of graphics was impossible. The grass was cut and the sites are level, but generally everything is in need of repair. That is a shame, too, because with the location this could be a very nice place to stay on your way to or from South or Central Florida.

Date of Stay:

Nice, heavily wooded park. The campground owners were very friendly and helpful. For those of you with satellite, most of the big rig sites are open enough for good reception. If you are like us and rely on over-the-air TV, there are only 2 channels. As some one else said, the roads through the park are very narrow, so if you are towing, you might want to unhook your car at the check-in. It is easy enough to get to Halifax from here. If I ever return to this area, I'd stay here again.

It's hard to believe this gem is so close to the city of Boston. Very wooded. It has been raining a lot lately, so the dirt roads are pretty muddy. That's one down side. All of the sites are dirt. Again, with the rain that's a down side, though when we were here last year and it was hot and dry, that wasn't a problem at all. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi works great. Plenty of room for our 2 slides and our 38 foot rig, even with the tow car still hooked up. We like this place.

Date of Stay:

This was an excellent park. Well cared for and very appealing. Very easy access off I-81. About the only thing I didn't care for was the charge for Wi-Fi. I didn't try it, so I can't say how well it worked. But the paved sites were pretty level, the grounds and the staff were nice, and they did everything they could to accommodate us. I'll stay here again the next time I am in the area.
