Date of Stay: November, 2012
When we arrived, we were subjected to the most welcoming experience. The staff were expecting us and they really made us feel welcome and went out of their way to make sure our stay will be full of fun. The facilities are great. We played miniature golf and utilized the playground. Our giant schnauzer is afflicted with wobblers syndrome, but is living a wonderful life. The staff came to visit him, just to bring a little more happiness in his life. When the kids are having fun , the pooch is happy, the facilities are great and the experience is full of fun, the staff must be commended for the great job they do. Yes, Legoland was fabulous, Lake Wales tourist sites were great, but it sure felt good coming back to the campground every night. we will definitely be coming back.

Driving up from the south, it was a sure pleasure to enter this fantastic State Park. After checking in at the ranger station (very friendly) it was a 3 mile drive to the campsites. A beautiful drive overlooking 3 lakes, through some orange groves and then into the three loops of campsites. Some sites have sewer. Ours did not, however dump station was close. Rest rooms and showers immaculate and well maintained. Our two grand daughters, 4 and 5 had a blast along with our Giant Schnauzer. Lots of running and biking trails and an abundance of nature in a real tranquil setting.

Once again, River Ranch meets and exceed our expectations. Our site in Phase III was magnificent. Plenty of space and plenty of shade. Picnic tables and fire pits (yep two sets one on each side of the motor home.) The activities were endless. Skeet shooting, golf, air boat ride, a round of golf, the rodeo. Didn't want it to end. On Sunday evening, when most everyone was gone, we drove the golf cart to the airport. Along the way were a few horses in the pasture. We stopped as they came to us and we petted them. It renewed our faith that life is good and gets one back to basics and away from the everyday hustle and bustle. We will come again and more often if we can.

Wonderful long weekend. Campsites were clean and ready when we arrive. Plenty to do with the beach nearby, a dog park and a dog beach. Plenty of restaurants nearby and lots to see in St Pete Beach. Campground was full over Mother's Day weekend, but all families having lots of fun.

Beautiful campground with plenty to do. Sites are large and fairly easy to navigate in and out. Plenty of shade with plenty of privacy. Dog park and Dog beach next to each other. Great views, especially of the Skyway Bridge. Clean restrooms and great trash control. Great family getaway. Will be back again in May. Book early, as the sites fill up quickly.

Magnificent state park with so much to do. Deep sites many for big rigs. We stayed at sand dollar 66. Directv dish just point straight out towards road. Ocean and pure white sandy beach are the best in the state. Will be back again.

A real pleasant surprise. The staff is extremely friendly and go out of their way to make sure your stay will be fun. We stayed on a pull through site with a concrete patio. Two large trees provided plenty of shade as most pull through sites were also treed. Hook ups couldn't be easier, all utilities had up to date hook-ups and in great shape. We stayed three nights and enjoyed all the area has to offer, including Tarpon Springs and Honeymoon Island State park which is just down the road. Bring the dog and enjoy the dog beach the state park offers. We will definitely come back to this this RV Resort.

It has been over 8 years since we stayed at this fantastic campground and what a pleasant surprise we experienced. The grounds have been manicured, and all of the buildings were upgraded. The Rodeo was better than ever, and the folks we ran into were very friendly. The security guard on his golf cart was not only friendly, but extremely helpful and watchful. We'll be coming back here again and again as the activities from boating, horseback riding, skeet shooting and so much more are so much fun for everyone in our family.

We stayed here for three nights with our 4 grand children, daughter and 90lb Giant Schnauzer. Our site was across from the dog park which was a true delight. All of the kids had a blast and our dog was in heaven. Disney truly has the magic and this stay was truly magical. We are looking forward to many more stays at this park.
