19 Parks near Arcadia, Florida

This is a little jewel of a park if you are into quiet camping, kayaking, or canoeing. It is a county park 6 miles north of Arcadia on Brownville St right on river. Boat ramp, hiking trails, and a little play ground for the kids. I guess you could fit a 40 footer in a couple of the spots, but it is for smaller rigs class B or C. I have been riding my bike through it last couple of weeks (I am staying in large RV park nearby) It is one of the canoe stopover points for people going down the Peace River. They say $20 a night with firewood. I would have loved to stay in this park when I had my class B. - what next

Excellent, quiet place. We came for three days. It was early fall and the place was deserted as the snowbirds had not yet arrived. Excellent value with Passport America. Very clean. New dog run which we used and was very nice. Did not use the pool or other amenities but they looked good.
The office is closed on weekends. We lost power on Sunday (just us) and called the emergency number on the door which was forwarded to the office where we left a voicemail. There was no callback but to be fair we figured out the problem and called back to cancel. First thing Monday the maintenance guy was knocking at our door.
I really liked this park. - RMD3819

Weekly rate. This is a nice older park and the residents are very friendly and very active in the park. This park is well maintained and well managed except for reservations. The sites are a little tight but not terrible. The pool is heated and very nice. The bonfire area next to the pool is excellent for get togethers and the fishing pond is large and well stocked. Catch and release only. The hot tub, I was told, is the old pool and somehow the jets were rerouted and only on in one small section of the tub. Nice though. Shopping, restaurants, produce, and grocers are all within walking distance. There is a short walking and biking path in front of the park. WiFi is accessible only in the club house but TV antenna reception is very good. The only problem we had was; their brochure said that you cannot pick a site, but you can pick the type of site you want. We reserved FHU 8 months before arrival but upon arrival we were put in the overflow with no sewer. I really would not have minded except there is only 2 showers and hot water is very hit or miss, there is only 2 toilets, 1 male, 1 female and their blue waste tank is worn out and the top won't stay on, causing several sewage spills. Not enough facilities for 20+ units in the overflow area. Arcadia is a small town about 40 minutes from anywhere and not much to do here. I would stay here again if in the area. - digger2280

Nice park. Geared to snow birds. Clean and functional. Gravel sites, most with patios. Many planned events. Campers are friendly, so is the staff. Full hookups. Some sites are close but most are roomy. - Dano849

Like the campground and the people. Next to Peace River for kayaking (bring your own). Not far from Walmart, Cracker Barrel & Nav-a-gator. Water has a lot to be desired (sulfur) (dogs got the runs). Rain all day one day and run off was good, but soggy. Lots of fire ants but that's Florida. Will return again. - HOMEBODYFL1948

This is a good park if you are on a very very tight budget. My site was muddy, the potable water is worse than horrible, and management is agreeable to anything: the park looks it! There's very small, tight parking areas. The staff keeps the park very neat and they do perform some services. This was my second park to stay at and I guess the first one spoiled me. I know a lot more now about picking a place to stay. - OPEPPER

Sites need picnic tables. Office person was very nice, but could be more friendly. People who live in the park very friendly. Nice club house. Free wifi in club house. Small concrete patio. - consmith

Stay was for 2 1/2 weeks. Dog park was closed. Was told it had something to do with electrical wire needed fixed. When we left it still was not fixed. People in the park were nice, but male office personnel was unpleasant. Visited 8 parks while I was in Florida this year, all office personnel were pleasant except this one. Was told we could upgrade to 50amp on website with no extra charge, well that didn't happen. Park was clean with level site. Nothing the park can do about it, but there was constant shooting during day from a blueberry farm. Was annoying and scared the dog all day. No picnic tables. - Beverly McConnell

Nice park with close sites. Doesn't offer Passport America discount in February. Stayed three nights. - Landyachty

Amenities list high speed internet which is handled by Camp Link. Our site was 2 sites from an antenna, but internet wouldn't work. I phoned Camp Link and they told me it was their worst park because of the electrical noise from the Walmart Distribution Centre across the street. The Camp Link person on the phone gave me a full refund but also told me that the camp management knew about the internet problem. I had to buy an internet plan at Walmart that worked fine but Live Oak indicates it is included. The other problem we had is the pool temperature is only 78* which is quite cool. Except for the above two problems, this was a very nice well kept park with large lots. I told them about these two problems at the store and they made it sound like I was the first to ever mention it; however, many people I talked to at the pool told me they had voiced the same concerns and got the same response. - Jacknel

Nice older RV park with many permanent sites. Short term RVs are parked at what they call the dog park, on grass with concrete patio's. The patios stick out of the ground a couple of inches causing a tripping hazard. The water is from a well and is strong with chlorine, dark clothing changes color when washed. There are two nice laundries. The pool and hot tub are old but well kept. There are a number of activities, but short term folks (those staying less than 6 months) are not really encouraged to attend. The golf course is 9 holes and very nice. The Peace River is close by, as is Punta Gorda. Beaches are 35 miles or more. Ft. Myers is 35 miles south and Sarasota is about 4o miles north. Arcadia is 20 miles north. There is a Wal Mart Distribution center across Hwy 17 from the park and at night you can hear the truck back up horns and hear the trucks being loaded making it difficult to sleep. The office staff and park residents are friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable and the owners do not increase the prices often. We would stay here again but probably not for three months. - linfrog

The most amazing find in the entire State of Florida. We stayed from November to April. We found this beautiful, down home park about three years ago and fell in love. It is very well kept, has been updated but still has the old time campground feel. Without a doubt the most friendly park we have ever stayed in and we would still be there had we not bought a home down the road. Oak Haven has full hookups, paved streets, a country setting next to the Peace River yet close to Wal Mart, downtown Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte. The Management Team is exceptional and will go the extra mile to make your stay perfect. The rates are outstanding considering the area and for long term/winter folks you pay your own electric which is very reasonable and they have city water, not well water which was a plus for us. There are tons of activities if you like becoming involved, they have dinners, dances and pool parties that are awesome. I would hope nothing other than the weather ever changes in this park because it is the best we have ever found..It is home! Thank You Oak Haven for just being you. - linfrog

Stayed here one night and it seemed like they were not prepared for us coming. Drove through trees that scratched our new motorhome. No electric we got there in the dark and had to call them to turn it on. Our motorhome was on unlevel grass and the down riggers sunk into the ground. Lots of bugs and mosquito's. We thought we were going to be on a level gravel pad. Live and learn it cost us our $200.00 deposit and we did have a reservation. Not happy at all. They were kind enough to trim the trees in the morning and offered to put gravel down. Too little too late. - Keally

This is a 55 plus camp and consists mainly of undeveloped sites that do have full hookups. The park is cut up by private land and an area of RVs that a different business man owns. I made the mistake of turning around in his open lot and was tracked down by him to see what I was up to (getting our laundry detergent). We enjoyed our stay at the park otherwise considering the $18 per night we paid with our Passport America membership. - bandirector

Great place for families. Able to ride ATVs safely. Rules strictly enforced. Dogs welcome. - mary m

We're new to camping but was very impressed with the site. The site is huge but it is built for 3 RV's or tents. It was perfect for us because our kids were there in tents and they took the other spots. If it was strangers it might have been a problem.
There is a mixture of long term tenants, short term and primitive camping. The buildings and grounds are shabby chic. ATV and off road vehicle use is actually encouraged. We had a very good time even though it rained the whole weekend. - sflabrkr

First time we stayed and love it. We stayed in the lake area. Lots were spacious and very clean. Fishing dock well maintained. Pool activities for the kids. Staff friendly. Kids didn't want to leave, neither did we. We will become regular visitors here. - L Jacques

A really nice park and very large. It looks like a couple of parks in one with the older section being smaller and closer lots. We chose the Lakes section which is a few years old and has much larger sites but also costs more.
The park has all the activities you could want. It is mostly a snowbird haven during the winter months with lots of things to do. We hit the tail end when everything is winding down.
They just updated the WiFi and are still working on getting it to work in the Lakes area. We had trouble but would still come back to this park. - John Borajkiewicz

The rate shown is based on the monthly rate plus the up charge for 50 amp service.
This is our third winter for a monthly stay in the Lakes section of the park. The Lakes addition was opened three winter seasons ago and offers wider open spaces than the older part of the park, albeit the sites are gravel with an adjacent concrete pad and picnic table. Roads throughout the park are paved. The Lakes also had previously offered very good Camplink provided internet service delivered to each site via cable and park provided modems. However for reasons that completely escape us, the Park switched to Tengonet wi-fi. Either they don't care, or hadn't researched Tengonet's dismal history of service at other parks that use them. The result has been almost no internet connectivity so far for the 12 days that we have been here this year. To make matters even worse, many in the park have started using Verizon and AT&T cellular data services, for which neither providers were prepared for, with resulting slow service on their networks as well. The park now says that the problems will be fixed by mid-January, but in December they were saying the issues would be resolved by the end of 2015.
On the positive side the park has a lot of residents that have returned year after year, and on the whole are very friendly. The park also supports many activities on a daily basis for those that are interested. The Park cable has a full complement of channels, however all are old analog signals. Over the air TV is very good with all the major networks accessible in HD. The Lakes section of the park had good satellite access throughout, however in much of the older sections of the park this will not be the case.
Our primary criteria for an overnight RV park is security, relative quiet and easy in and out access. For an extended stay location, we need decent internet access which Riverside unfortunately no longer has. - Johnson's

This is a ownership property with 99 sites by the very small town of Ft Ogden. Punta Gorda is 20 miles west and Port Charlotte another 5 miles or so away. They began building here in 2015 and about 1/3 of the lots are sold. There are 6 ponds with fountains and a total of 58 acres. There's a beautiful clubhouse and heated pool. The developers offer a 4 day/3 night free stay to look at their property. They graciously allowed us to stay on site 2 a pull in with a view of one of the ponds. All sites have pavers and many sites are building casitas and screened rooms. Definitely a high end community. - cincychic

This is a new and still being built out motorcoach-only park. You will be renting sites from owners in the rental pool. Sites are spacious and well landscaped. Near to Punta Gorda and there is a gold course next door. They at present have a "3-day stay and see free" program, which I am not sure how long will be there. This is a very nice park. - peddy dick

Our reservation was made by phone. There isn't anyone in the office when we arrived on the weekend. Our paperwork was in a box by the office. This park has mostly full-timers with an area by the entrance for overnighters. We felt the roads to turn into the spots are too narrow and there are drop-offs on each side of the road. The back tire of our rig partially landed in a gully when we turned. The original site given, was a grassy spot that would get muddy in the rain. We have a 42' 5th wheel and needed a harder surface. I called to request a different spot and was told there was an additional charge for a premium (concrete) spot ($4.00, I believe). We changed to the new spot. The park was nice with a small, but clean pool. The bathrooms and clubhouse could use some updating. Laundry room was nice and right next to the pool (which was convenient). No wi-fi free or paid. Convenient location. Close to Peace River and Wal-Mart. We had cows for neighbors in the pasture behind our site. - ThisIsHowWeRoll

Many long term people we spoke with like this park. Lots of activities, clean lots, mix of permanent and RV spots. We found no wifi at site, can buy it but we couldn't even get that done. Wifi good at clubhouse if no one is streaming video! Rainy and therefore very muddy sites with ruts everywhere. No cable available. Satellite available only if you get a site with no trees. only 3 showers available for the entire park (big rig friendly) hot water ran out halfway thru shower! No picnick table. - NHNOMAD
