What a find!! I was thrilled to discover this park. We have annual passes to Universal Studios so we needed to find a place close. I would say at most it was a 10 minute drive from the campground to Universal's parking lot! And that's through Orlando traffic. This park is nice. It's one of those where you're driving along through businesses and neighborhoods thinking that there is no way there would be a park/campground, and then all of a sudden there it is! There is a disc golf course that I found unique, a children's zoo (didn't go in), a nice pool, boat rentals, trails and bike paths. And there seemed to be a lot of locals utilizing the park which is nice to see. The only 'con' was the sites are horribly unlevel. We made it work though and had read other reviews so were ready for that. We just added a step stool so we could easily get to the first step.

My favorite campground. Sites 130, 132, 134, 136 the best (pull-throughs for larger campers). Building a new bathhouse right behind them and you're close to the horseshoes, shuffleboard and playground. Excellent walking trails, an interesting museum, tram ride through the park, and a restaurant with GREAT desserts (wild orange pie and warm blackberry cobbler).

Beautiful park with large, private, level sites. Lots of trails to ride bikes or hike. Springs were nice although too cold to swim in November. Saw deer every evening around dusk. Close to stores and shopping if need to pick up some things. Canoe rentals at the concession stand. Strange driving here though. Went through lots of neighborhoods, thought we'd missed the sign for the park and then all of a sudden we were here! This is definitely a park we want to return to.
