This was a return visit because it is fairly comfortable and a good rate with PA. Wi-fi with Tengo worked really well this time. Safe park, gated in a pleasant rural setting. The ladies in the office are wonderful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well the residents and staff make this park what it is. Very friendly. Old campground that seems to be in some kind of transition. Lots of older park models for sale or rent. Have about 15 transient sites. Wi-Fi is through Tengointernet...really bad. Hookups are fine. Sites are adequate. Some have a cement pad. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean. Quiet. Level. Those are the most outstanding points of this campground. On the other hand, no one could proclaim this place to have any shade or be generous on space between sites. Overall, pleasant but no beauty spot. If you come, be sure to visit the Giraffe Ranch a few miles to the north. It is a very rewarding experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price is three month rate but does not include electric of about $2 a day. We have been here since November of 2012 and thoroughly enjoy this park. Many park models here but plenty of spaces left for transients. Our site is very level and faces a row of pleasant park models. Palm tree lined streets add a tropical feel. All roads are paved. All sites are grass and a few offer concrete pads for your picnic table. Services are excellent although some sites require long connections for water and electric. Cable and phone are available thru BrightHouse and WiFi thru either BrightHouse or TengoNet. Very quiet at night except for a train which passes about a mile away. Park is located in rural area with orange groves on one side of park and pine trees on the other. Pleasant town of Dade City about 2 miles away and close to Zephyrville with its excellent Super Walmart for shopping. Extremely friendly people. We are planning to stay here again next winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a Carefree RV Resort that participates with Passport America; therefore we were able to stay for half price for two weeks! This park is about three miles from Dade City, is well maintained with very friendly and competent management. There are many full time park models in the park (mainly from Michigan and Wisconsin) and all the residents were very friendly and helpful to those in RVs. The laundry facilities were clean and modern as was the pool. There were many activities available to us but we were in Dade City to work with Habitat for Humanity, so we were not able to participate. Cable is not available to short timers so we used our satellite system. Internet is available. Dade City is about one hour west of Orlando and 45 minutes NE of Tampa. We would definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed for a couple of months so the nightly rate was much lower. Campground is nice. Onsite managers are fantastic. Always around and always willing to help in any way they can. Sites are fair sized. They do run activities in the winter that are nice but a lot of them are held outside in a pavilion.......fine if the weather is nice. They do have a small hall for some things like bingo, small groups. There is no rec. hall to speak of. The one pool table in the pavilion is in pretty tough shape. The biggest deterrent for us was the constant trains. They all blow there whistle at the numerous crossroads and many stop and back up to unhook cars as necessary.....again blowing the horns constantly. With that being said, if your the type of person that can tone out the trains this could be an enjoyable place to stay. For us it was not and we will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is very nice. It is a 55+ but welcoming to a little younger. Check-in was quick and the staff was friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site. The restrooms were clean. Wi-Fi is free, but you need to take your device to the computer office in town so the service provider can enter your mac address into their computer. Browsing is slow. There is not really a place to ride a bicycle except throughout the park. You are located between Zephyrhills and Dade City. Dade City has antique shopping and little bistros. The location of the train tracks in close proximity to the park makes for a sleepless night. The trains seemed to come regularly through the night and because the park is close to an intersection, the train has to blow it's horn. We planned to stay for three nights, but had to leave after one. The noise was the only deal killer for us. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects PA discount. The park was clean enough. Lots of winter snowbirds here. We were told nothing about any activities and were parked close to the railroad tracks. Trains running ALL night and blowing their whistles: horrible night's sleep every night. We were in an end spot and the hookups were on the wrong side. In order to reach them we were backed up almost touching the RV behind us and it gave us no yard. Would never stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park. Very clean. Great location, in the country but close to shopping and medical facilities. Yes, the park is very close to the railroad but it didn't bother us. Better than highway noise. Has great activities and very friendly. Owner managed, the owners live right at the park, and they are very involved in all the park activities. Had a great time and they accept Passport America and Camp Club USA all year long. I had read a review that said that transients were placed by the railroad but that wasn't true for us. A lot of permanents are along the railroad tracks. We were located right across from the laundry room. Good size lot. We were very happy with our stay even though we were a little leery about the railroad track. No, it doesn't go all night long and it didn't bother us. We strongly recommend the park. Was very clean, had great management, and was very friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Train noise prevent us from getting any sleep. There is a track crossing to get to the park and trains blow their whistle at this crossing every hour, 24 hours a day. Not a peaceful canground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My reservation was in the "new-comer" lane which was 20-30 feet from a very busy railroad track. The main road to the CG was overthe tracks and trains approaching this road will blow their whistle.
This anoyance continued well into the night resulting in sleepless nights. Trains will pass this CG at leat once and hour. We were so close to the track that I could feel the motorhome vibrate as the trains approached. Even though each site has it own electric meter, only every other meter is activated therefore sites must share electric meters with only (1)30 and (1) 50 Amp plug at each electric pole. If your neighbor is plugged into the 50 Amp, you automatically get the 30 Amp even if 50 amps were promised. The end result is that you must negotiate with your neighbor for the power you need. This is so that the CG doesn't have to spend $40 to activate the alternate power meters. I will not recommend this site because of this policy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very pretty park. Even though we were given sites on "the hill," our site was almost perfectly level. The only drawback is that you have to park on the grass, so in the morning walking results in web shoes and grass cuttings being dragged back into the RV. The staff is very, very friendly. They do all they can to make your stay an enjoyable one. Cable TV was OK even though the number of available channels was limited. The Wi-Fi worked fine Thursday and Friday, but when the park became more filled on Saturday, it was impossible to hold an internet connection. Travelers Rest is like a small village: it has its own Fire Department. EMT's are nearby a able to respond quickly. There are tons of clubs for those staying long-term. The public building was huge. We had to share facilities with another club, but it all worked out. The nicest feature TR has is its golf course. It's only nine holes, but it appears to be well-kept. Maybe next year when we come back for our December rally, I'll bring my clubs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you enjoy being away from it all, golf, tennis, a clean park with lots of clubs and activities then this could be the park for you. The only downside for short term campers is the camping area is more like an overflow area than an actual campground site. Camping is in a large mowed grassy field commonly referred to as the "hill". The roads are grass, there are no trees or shrubbery at all - nothing but posts with the hookups, which worked as expected. Everyone was very friendly,, but the campsites are disappointing - the place does grow on you though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects Passport America discount, which was better than the weekly rate. Park was enormous. We camped here during the off-season, so we didn't have access to all the amenities available during the fall and winter months, like the restaurant and activities. The sites were grass and not very level. This is the only park where we have had to use blocks. The cable also didn't work, and because of large trees, we were unable to use our portable dish. There is no store onsite, and everything is a few miles away, but it was a decent place, and I felt safe there. As usual, we arrived after dark, and it was difficult to identify where the sites were. We parked by the maintenance building, which was a hub of activity each day, so I would recommend parking in the other lot, which I've been told was also more level. They have sirens when 911 is called, so you may hear those go off. The staff and residents couldn't be nicer. There is a golf course onsite if you're into that, and a nice little park area by the restaurant. We saw several deer, large birds, and other wildlife there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Travelers Rest Resort is a lovely place to stay. It is like a mini-town with many amenities. The only drawback is the area where the sites are located. It is like a large field, with no trees and the site slopes. The sites are large with hook-ups. We plan to stay there again when we visit that area of Florida. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a good destination campground for golfers. There is a 9 hole golf course on the resort grounds. If you don't golf there isn't too much to do. Campground is located 10 miles from the nearest city. The Resort is well maintained and the staff are friendly. Lots of organized activities for those that like them. The free cable TV is limited to about 19 channels. Thank goodness FOX News was one of them. The free wifi signal is close to the Golf View section of the park and worked great. The 70 sites in the Golf View section do not require reservations and are on a first come first served basis. Other sections of the resort are reservable for a week or longer term stay. If there were more things to do close to the park, it would rate a 9. We would stay here again for a overnight or short stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. They have a dynamite screened in pool and hot tub that we immediately used. It rained while we were there so other than using the pool, we ran around the rest of the time in Tarpon Springs. I guess if you stay longer, there seems to be a lot of activities which I assume we could have participated in. The area where we parked was an open grassy lot which was well mowed and next to the golf course. There were no trees on it and no picnic tables or fire rings like most campgrounds. We stayed here since we had a couple days to kill before we checked into Disney and we wanted to check out the former Airstream park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a gorgeous place with huge grounds. It's about 15 miles outside of Dade City, but close to the interstate.The utilities are awkward for me and may be set up for an Airstream. The sewer is in the rear/middle of the site and the water/electric at every other site. A golf course surrounds most of the sites. Very nice screened pool and limited cable. Large room for internet access. I suggest a number 12 site, but watch out for golf balls. The staff was great. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were impressed with the helpfulness of the staff. They attempted to fill our every request promptly and politely. They offer a wide range of activities for those planning on a longer stay. The pool is screened in which proved very helpful at reducing bug bites while swimming. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a nice campground and a good place to stay for a couple of days or longer. They
have a nice little golf course and have a lot of regulars that stay here for long periods of time. It had been raining and our site was very muddy and had tire ruts where the previous camper had torn up the ground getting out. They should gravel the sites or pave them. The people were very nice, but the campground is not near many conveniences such as grocery stores or restaurants. They have a sort of overflow area called "golf view" sites. We looked at them and are glad we did not have to stay there. They were on dirt and a little rough. We camped here in a Motorhome.
