We've been camping here off and on, since 2016. This is not your typical run of the mill campground. This is more of an off road or ATV Campground with over 100 acres to explore, having said that, it's the safest and most responsible place to go. I have children and grandchildren and they love it! It can get crazy (But under control) during holiday weekends. They do nickel and dime you for everything; however, you get what you pay for. The staff is polite, helpful and professional. Overall this is a great place to go out doors to be in Florida's natrual beauty and still do some, "Glamping" camping or be off grid yet have all the convenance near by. I highly recommend it, IF you're into ATVing if you Peace and quite go durin the week not the weekend. We camp in 44' 5th Toy Hauler... Enjoy and Godspeed. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a great time but we stayed here during the week and I can see how things could.get a little crazy over the weekend. There are lots of ATV trails along the river. The property is huge and staff were friendly. Canoe rentals, game room, pool. Close to town, good fossil hunting. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Peace River Campground is a very cozy and shaded campground. It was a long walk to the river from the main camping area but worth the walk. We found many fossils and sharks teeth and the owners/staff were all very friendly. The price seems a bit high for a campground like this, the rates were similar to Disney or a beach front campground. Otherwise, it is a fine place to stay. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Motorhome.

I really don't know where to begin but I'll try to give as accurate account as possible. Having just spent 2 miserable and way overpriced days there I can truthfully say that I will never return again. This is a real, 100% "Red Neck" campground. Upon arriving I was informed that my rate was $56.00 a day, NOT the $48.00 that I was told when I made our reservations PLUS $4.00 per day for electric. When I tried to find my site, I finally figured out that we were "sardine" in between 2 other campers. Our awning was almost touching the other camper and the camper on the other side was darn near up against ours. So much for any privacy. We left out window shades down all weekend. If you love inhaling dust and dirt all weekend, this is your place. Not a single paved road and ATV's, golf carts, dirt bikes and any conceivable type of conveyance all run amok from 8:00 AM until 10:00 PM with all of them being operated by kids as young a 3 years old. This is no lie!!! Who assumes responsibility for the consequences of any type of accident? The campground asks if you have any of the above and if you do, you are charged $15.00 for a plastic "hospital type" of wristband to wear at all times. If you are observed not following what few rules they have that are enforced by the retired cops who act as security, your wristband is cut off. It claims to have a sand beach, which it does barely, but again, all the vehicles have access to the beach including running into the water. I was sitting in my chair, taking a break from the only fun there - fossil hunting - when a 4 wheel drive redneck pick up truck drove right next to me, about a foot away , and partially into the river, and out jumped about 10 more rednecks, beers in hand, running into the water to rinse off the mud from the mud hole they were in. When we finally left this hellhole, I had to stop and completely wash down my motorhome and the water flowed off like mud. No exaggeration!! Take the advice of an experienced camper, rather than camp here, stay home and camp in your driveway, back yard or even an empty lot. You'll be safer and have much more fun!! We camped at Peace River Campground in a Motorhome.

Main reason for low rating is the price. No discounts for anything and on top of this, they charge $5.00 daily for Wi-Fi. It is an older park that is being upgraded. I guess to be able to drive your ATVs, folks will pay the price. We were visiting friends close by and have no reason to ever stay here again, and wouldn't. Restrooms, showers and laundry were clean, sites real hard to figure out. At $25-30 this is a good place, but not $56. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Motorhome.

Still an "active" campground for younger active ATV and fossil digger in the river people. Added 100 acre primitive camping area and upgrading the electric in the full hook up area with better and more 50 amp service. This is not a place to sit back as I cannot say active country enough but a ton of fun for us. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Motorhome.

If you are looking for a campground where your first grader can operate -- unhampered by a pesky helmet -- an adult-sized ATV without your having to supervise; where the sound of internal combustion engines predominates, interrupted only by blaring country music; and where ATVs, motorbikes and golf carts have unrestricted access to what remains of the wilderness adjacent to the campground, this is the place for you. Restrooms and showers are unisex, individual units accessible from the outside only. Not heated (we were there when the nights were in the thirties). Shower water was hot, but pressure varied widely as others used showers; showers had limited hangers and many had no bench or seat of any kind. Campground sells itself on its website as family-friendly (especially to kids and dogs), and it is that. It also says that it is not primarily an ATV park, but whatever they started out as, they are one now. There were more ATVs than RV's and tents, and there were plenty of those. Family-owned and operated, the place has a friendly staff with an obviously great sense of humor. There is an enclosure with goats, a tortoise and other animals. Hiking would have been great except for having to leap out of the way of ATVs coming around sharp turns. Forget bicycling in camp if you value your life, but a nice ride can be had on the access road running alongside Route 70, over the Peace River, and into Arcadia. We left a day early because of the noise, much of it from our immediate neighbors revving up their ATVs. We will never go again, but again, there is an audience for this sort of thing, and if it's you, have at it. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Motorhome.

This was our first trip to an RV park in our new rv and we loved it. Staff was friendly. If you have an ATV or dirt bike this is the place for you. Several trails out in the wilderness where the tents are located. Good size lots, semi private. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Motorhome.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Sites OK but tight. It's the wild west. Little kids driving golf carts and ATV's everywhere, unsupervised. Open high proof bottles at many campsites. Stars and bars were flying. Dogs galore. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I camped here with my husband and three teens, and all of us gave this two huge thumbs up. It is rare to find such untouched beauty today. The staff is down to earth, professional and friendly. There are a variety of events for the young and the old. Fossil hunting and riding ATV's, along with the rope swing over the river, are more than enough to keep my active teens busy all day long. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second visit to this campground. Our first was in a tent, and the site was a little further back in the park. The second was in a pop up in a site with electric and water hook up. The park is very pretty, but it is more like a zoo than a campground. ATV's and golf carts driven by children all waking hours made it a very stressful experience, especially when we were hoping to 'get away from it all'. We do not plan on returning. We camped at Peace River Campground in a Travel Trailer.
