We had site #13 and have been here multiple times. Really like the woodsy feel and closeness of the camping area to the tubing area. Campground had noisy people next to us this time. People using loud voices until very early in the morning, not drunk (no alcohol allowed in park, they WILL check) just noisy. It rained at the start of our stay and there was some standing water in a few sites which breeds mosquitos here. Park was very crowded on weekend but quiet during week. Tube run is great and cold. Lots of lifeguards for safety, if you are not acting in a family friendly way you WILL be asked to leave. Park closes from 10a-3p on weekends because of crowding, so get here early or come late. Campers checking in must be IN sites before park closes for night. No late arrivals. - FL Camper
We were in site #13.This is our 4th visit check out reviews on 8/08, 6/09, and 9/10 for full info. We love this park even though the campground is older. It is a short walk to the springs to cool off and there is peace and quiet here. No alcohol or rude behavior is tolerated. I even saw some loud mouthed kids at the springs get their entire family ejected for loud cursing. This is a very family friendly park where they don't put up with rule breakers! The newest thing they have added is the bear proof trash cans in the campground. We saw a young bear checking every trash can in the picnic area this visit. Park is patrolled often by sheriff deputies. The tubing is great and as a camper you can walk the spring trail after the park closes and see lots of wildlife come out. Our site was HUGE and next to the walkway. Lots of shade and they also sell firewood for campers now. Apopka is close by with many stores if you forget anything. Best value in Central FL in our book. - FL Camper
We camped in site #8. Very shady with w/e, fire ring/grill combo, picnic table on a concrete slab. Sites are long enough for the longest RV's. We did have a problem with the power going out, but it was rectified quickly with the ranger. This our 3rd time camping here and we still really like this campground. It is quiet, but close to the river where the tubing is. Park is not crowded during the week but does get full on weekends. We saw deer on a hike, turkeys, raccoons, and a bear was sighted in the campground. - FL Camper
This is our 3rd time staying at this park. It's a secure place with locked gates in the evening, and peacocks roam freely during the day. Most sites are spacious with some foliage between so you may not notice your neighbor as much. The trees can make navigating a little tight if your unit is larger than 32 ft. The bathhouses are the only thing that might disappoint - they are extremely basic without any bench to place your things except outside the curtain stall, and there's only enough hot water for one person, so plan accordingly. We enjoy staying here as it feels more secluded and private. The staff are friendly and we met the park supervisor who is very nice and can tell you when the next rocket launch will be at Kennedy Space Center. Each site has a paved patio with picnic table and fire ring - firewood is provided for a great deal, though they ran out this visit due to their wood splitter needing maintenance. We got perfect Verizon 4G-LTE data signal here, but cell service was spotty with 1-2 bars, possibly due to the heavier tree cover at our site. We plan to come back next year. - Sara C.
The staff are very friendly and they routinely clean up sites and do security checks. The gate is locked after park hours, but campers receive an access code. There is a 14-day max limit and you can only reserve 45 days in advance, although there is no deposit required. Sites are spaced nicely apart with some separated by foliage, making them feel private. Sites are concrete pads with a picnic table & firepit provided. Firewood is provided here as well for a great deal. There are 2 bath houses but located in the same general area, so only southeast sites are close-by without much hiking. It was pretty quiet during our stay, maybe half or less of the sites were filled on weekends. I was eaten up by mosquitoes my first night, ants are abundant but didn't bother us, and a few peacocks roam freely around the park, which is a nice site. Watch out for the huge orbital spiders here, we saw 3. The one-way road through the campground is narrow and windy, so I wouldn't recommend big-rigs here. We could tell that the owner has great attention to detail, like adding an extended concrete pad to the road when exiting the dump station because of a tree making the turn difficult. No sites have sewer. I work online, so Verizon coverage is important to me - had reliable cell coverage and LTE data here. No wifi is available. - Sara C.
Nice campground. Most of the sites are well spaced apart except #9. It is very close to #10. My only complaint about this park is with the bath house. The dressing area floods while taking a shower and there are no electric plugs, however, it was clean and well stocked during our stay. The amenity we enjoyed most about this park is that one of the trail heads to the Lake Apopka Loop Trail is right across the street. We biked about eight miles of the trail. The trail consists of hard packed gravel/marrow. We saw a variety of birds, several alligators, and one Water Moccasin(beware!). A great bike ride! Several restaurants are nearby in Apopka. - judeebug
Paved streets, gravel sites, with concrete pad with picnic table. Some pull through, we are 69 feet with our trailer and fit nicely. Friendly staff, pool shuffleboard. There are three permanent dwellings. Clean neat, and I would return. - GlennLever
Stayed in one of their new pullthru sites - 100 feet long and lots of space between sites! Leveling wasn't an issue. Brand new owners here just took over and staff says they plan to continue the upgrades of previous owners. Some sites are shady, ours was open so we could get rooftop satellite. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, escort to your site, and always out and about working or maintaining the grounds. Shopping nearby, and if you haven't been to Mt Dora you're in for a real treat: beautiful town with unusual shops and festivals. We'll definitely stay here when in the area! - marral
The park is nice but the new owners are not nice and not friendly! The owners go to the pool and get into your face, and it makes you feel uncomfortable. They say it is a family friendly park, but they charge for your children! The older couple were very hateful to us! The other workkampers were very nice to us. Beware of this campground. They say they have internet, but it does not work! The campground is noisy, but the young workkampers kept the campground clean and neat. - decalsforever
Tried to call and reserve a spot and the phone is disconnected. - esta34950
Description of RV park on website is overly-exaggerated. Park does have a security gate - being that it does have a lot of permanent residents. It has about 30 sites that are reserved for temporary visitors. You have to check in at the convenience store located on the campground. Staff is friendly. Store is somewhat rundown. Our site was grassy, and after the rains got very muddy. Cable did not work. The cap on the sewer line was covered in tree and grass debris which leads me to believe that not too many temporary visitors come this way. The comfort station located close to our site was located in a very old building and not very clean. We stayed for 3 days during the 4th of July weekend. The park does have a nice large pool and offered activities for the kids. - JoelRamirez
Wow, this place is something else. We arrived here looking for a place to stay for the winter. After looking at their website, we thought it would be a nice place to stay. We pulled in and were greeted by a guard at the entrance. We told him we were here to look around and he just let us in. Don't seem very secure. We went to the office and talked to the attendant. She gave us a map of some sites available to look at. We were informed that all of the sites were for sale and if we decided to camp on one, it may get sold and we would have to move. We walked around and started checking out the sites. We quickly noticed that this place is not a campground and is miles away from being a "resort". Every trailer in here looked as if it had been parked there and lived in by permanent residents for many years. They were very cluttered and trashy looking. When we arrived at one of the vacant sites, the neighbor came out to talk to us. He said that the police patrol the area quite heavily (I assume its because of the crime that happens in this place). We were told to watch our belongings very carefully and if we are to leave that it would be best to take our valuables with us in our vehicle. We decided to walk around a bit more and see if we were just on the bad side of the tracks or something. After about 10 minutes of walking around, we didn't feel safe anymore and just decided to get out of there. All of the facilities were old and in desperate need of repair and updating. The showers and restrooms were gross and smelled like a sewer. There are many many other places to stay in Florida. Look them over before staying here. - Jusber15
Campground is nice. Location is great near Orlando Bathrooms were clean with plenty of room. Some sites have full hookups the springs are about a mile from the camp ground Overall is a great place to stay but need to make reservations well in advance in the winter or the week ends. Road and sites can be a little tight for big rigs but doable. We will return. - bunni
Beautiful park but showing signs of weak management and overuse. Camped during the high season so Shuffled from site to site during my two week stay. Florida State Parks allow you to reserve specific sites instead of non-specific site reservations, therefore, you have situations where a tent is on a 50+ foot long site and there are no sites available for larger motor homes. The entire time we were at the park, only one of our sites was cleaned by the camp host. Found trash in the fire rings, deep tire grooves in another, and trash littered around one loop. All day, people not suppose to be in the campground driving in and looking around. One day, some children threw wooden poles in the middle of the main road as a joke. Park rangers did nothing about it and the poles were still lying next to the road two weeks later as I was exiting the park. Both the campground and the spring are ALWAYS terribly crowded. Bathrooms were clean but dated and musty. Tight getting around corners in the loops. The area around the park is heavy built up and the traffic can be very heavy. Only 30 amp service, so you're only running one air conditioner. In March, this was proving almost inadequate, so you'd be roasting come Summer time. - LeoRunner
This park would rate a 10 if they had 50 amp service. We are a 'big rig' and 30 amps is just not enough. Since it was winter, we were able to manage; however, I think A/C would be a problem in the summer. Sites are large enough for a 42 ft. Motorcoach and the setting is lovely. There are also quite a few services in the area, so getting food, etc. is very easy. A good place to camp! - 600 Day Travelers
