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. We camped at Big Tree RV Park in a Motorhome.

Across the street from Walmart and restaurants. More stores and shopping just down the street. There is an excellent farmers market down the road same side of the street.

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. We camped at Big Tree RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Two things. See the Lippizzan Stallions about 30 minutes away. The meat market and produce stand inside the chain link fence, turn right about a 1/4 mile out of the park, is amazing. Very good meat and produce at really good prices. Very busy place but worth standing in line for.

Rate reflects a monthly rate. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Big Tree. This park is mostly park models that are occupied by snow birds. There is room for about 70 or so RVs, mostly on front street. We had a site near the office. Satellite reception was good. Streets are narrow so it can be tough backing into your site. We had two people to help us with the back in, so it was pretty easy. Our site was soft sand and about 3" off level. We did have a concrete drive for our truck and a brick patio for the RV. There was also a brick patio under the shade trees in back. Most streets are paved, but narrow. Lots of golf carts and bicyclist. Our site had lots of leaves on the ground which we raked up and the grass was not mowed during our stay. Warning: If you approach this park from the west on FL 70, you must make a u-turn at the stoplight in order to enter the park. For a long bed dually and 40' fifth wheel it is impossible to do. We wound up in a community next door that has narrow streets that we had to negotiate in order to get turned around. According to residents of the park, you need to turn right into Walmart so you can get turned around and come out at the stoplight. If we are in this area, we would stay here again. We camped at Big Tree RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this park for four months, from December 2014 through March 2015, on an early registration special. We have been very happy here, with friendly and helpful staff, great community culture, good activities, etc. There is a nice, salt-water, heated pool and a hot tub available for guests, and the park has many park models and a few full-time residents. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Big Tree RV Park in a Motorhome.

Arcadia is a full small town with nice restaurants and lots of antique shops. There is a Winn-Dixie, a Walmart, some shops, restaurants and produce stands within walking/biking distance of the campground. There is a sizable sidewalk that follows Hwy 70 from Toby's RV Park almost in to Arcadia that will accommodate bikes, walkers and golf carts--nice!

Walmart right across the street. Joshua's Citrus has great fruit and the best orange ice crean I ever had. Home made from their own oranges.

By far the best church is Calvery Baptist Church on hwy 70. Pastor Scott is gifted in his preaching and the congregation very welcoming. Slims is a great dinner place and Mary Margarets tea room is a must for lunch.

We originally were planning to stay for two weeks, but decided to spend the month. Great monthly rate in the overflow section, only draw back is no sewer hookup, so you need to be prepared. Lots of activities and very close to Punta Gorda & Fort Meyers with out the crowds. Mixed age groups here, but everyone was friendly and there are daily activities for everyone. Already made reservations for next year. We camped at Big Tree RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our lengthy stay here last winter and will do so again this year. Beautiful campground near Super Walmart (across the street!), downtown and lots of eating places! Main problem is internet access is very difficult - one computer with dial-up (too outdated for most!), that you have to share in a small room with 400 other sites - no wi-fi that we could tell. Lots of activities (music, bingo, cards) for all - mostly snowbirds here for the winter - very friendly, home-like atmosphere. Sites are on nice-sized lots - privacy and space from neighboring sites. We camped at Big Tree RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
