36 RV Parks near Bartow, Florida
Jan 2014 - $21.00
Price reflects monthly stay of $475 plus $50 deposit for electric. This park is a 55+ age restricted park, but the folks here are a very nice and pleasant crowd. The sites are a mixture of permanent park models and pads for short/long timers. We stayed for 1 month, but most folks stay for 3 to 4 months in the winter time. Utilities are fine, but the water does have a faint smell to it, water and electric connections are in the back while the sewer is mid-ship. The pads are a good 20 feet wide and you park your camper in the grass, so you have the entire pad for you truck and chairs, but no picnic table or fire ring. My only complaint about the place is its right on Rt. 60 and the orange trucks run all day & night, if you are in the back, its not bad, but we were on the 2nd road in road the highway. Oh, and its 7 miles east of Bartow, Fl, but 1.5 hours from either coast. And watch out for the fire ants!!!! Wi-Fi is available through a 3rd party vendor for $35 a month. We didn’t try it. We will probably return since we made lots of friends here. Oh, and they don't seem to have a web site; at least I couldn't find one. - oldelmer1

Nice park in central part of the state of state road 60. We stayed 6 weeks and enjoyed ourselves very much. Lots of activities scheduled daily, friendly staff and campers, lots of return snowbirds and full-time residents. We plan to return. - donbar

We parked here most of 2004 and all of 2005 and have friends there now (2008). It's a small park, with several mobile homes and some 'permanent' RVs. It's not an over night place. Rate is $325 plus metered electricity for the first 6 months. Nice yards, cement patios. Located next to a large mobile home retirement community in a pretty quiet area. - Working Full timer

First time here, visiting friends in the area. Nice, clean, spacious park, friendly and helpful staff. No on-site restaurant or supply store. On-site golf cart rental at reasonable rates. Golf course needs a lot of work. Not a bad place, but I've been at better. Pretty much have to go off site to find anything, but the park itself is well kept and pleasant. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. - Orchard Park RVer

We have stayed here previously and can tell they have put a lot of time and money into improvements. The have Nice large concrete sites for even the biggest rigs. The staff is attentive and friendly. Wifi is great. It is easily accessed with little trouble navigating the roads with our fifth wheel. With that said, the roads are narrow and impossible for two rigs to pass each other. The sites are also on the narrow side, but not really an issue. They keep the place very clean which is immensely appreciated. They have a great grassy area that would be perfect for a fenced in dog park. We will definitely stay here again. - jnlo

This is a great park. Large lots with concrete patios. The staff was always helpful even when they were busy. Pool was great and golf was nearby. Great park to bike around. - travelbag

Roadways and spaces are really small, impossible to get in/out without tree limbs brushing tops and sides of our 33' class C motor home. Appears to cater more toward senior citizen snow birds, definitely did not seem kid friendly (and lady who checked us in jacked up rate $12/night when she found out we had kids), odd since they advertise their proximity to legoland. Even one of the full timers there that was nice to us told us to ignore the checkin lady, they knew exactly attitude we encountered without us saying a word. - Erica LR

Small, family-run park. Very friendly, helpful people. Moderate traffic noise if you are parked right along the street. Lovely lake shore waterfront lots at the rear of the park but they are not very long. Streets inside the park are very tight. They have a laundry, did not use. They have 2 50-amp sites along the street. Wi-Fi worked well, only somewhat slow in the early evening, like everywhere. The published rate was the Passport rate for 50 amp service. There was cable installed at our 50-amp site, but it did not work. Water pressure was very low, especially in the morning and early evening. Because of the traffic noise and the very low water pressure, we would not stay here again. - SusanRon

We knew nothing about this park before coming here, except it was cheap (rate quoted is Passport). We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival, given a choice between a full hook-up site or a lovely waterfront w/e site. We chose the site on the lake where we could watch the birds and the sunset. They helped us into the site (some spaces looked small, but ours was fine). One evening, they had live music in the lakeside porch, place felt like a friendly neighborhood. Some would complain about tight turns to get in but for the money, we thought this place was great. We stayed for five nights and would definitely return. - joenan

Hammondell is mainly for permanent and snowbirds with about 40 spots for short term stays. We stayed for a month so the daily rate was very low, but had an electric bill of about $40 at the end of the month. - WNC Traveler

This is definitely a retirement park and the vast majority of the permanent units are old and in need of upkeep. There are a few overnight sites and all of these are tight, really tight for a rig over 30 feet long to get in and out of. Hook ups were typical and the price per night included cable TV. The best thing I can say about this park is that it is quiet. We paid for 10 nights and ended up staying only 5 nights. - the Fishers

We stayed for 4 months at the monthly rate of $475 plus electric. WiFi was limited as we were in the rear of the park but not a major problem as we opted for the extended TV and WiFi thru the local provider. While the sites are somewhat narrow and some of the paved streets are not the widest this is more than offset by management and the people that reside in the park.
We have stayed in different parks and in different cities within FL and this is by far the friendliest park we have had the pleasure of staying at. The manager, is the greatest. Plenty of planned activities to keep everyone busy or lounge around the pool...your choice.
Made a lot of friends that we now stay in contact with. Can't wait to go bad next winter. - BlueBoy

Negatives - Mostly permanent residents, not many children, very little shade, lacking an adequate playground area, extremely quiet. Positives - Walmart within walking distance, close to LEGOLAND, clean area, friendly office staff. Overall - We went with our three kids. The staff were friendly but the park was mostly older individuals and there were almost no children. We felt out of place with our active children. If you're looking for a quiet retreat this would be it. But I wouldn't recommend if you have small kids that want to play. - Brunette8610
Jun 2016 - $35.00
The managers were very friendly and helpful. Large park, with a number of permanent residents, but very well kept. We stayed here for 4 nights mid June 2016. Cost was $35.00 a night with Good Sam discount. Site was a little wider than normal, and long enough for our 37-foot RV and tow-dolly. There are at least 3 bathhouse buildings, so you are close no matter where you are in the park. The one I went into was very clean. Pool was nice and clean, and they also offer shuffleboard, bocce balls, basketball, mini-golf and a playground area, plus a fenced dog park. WiFi was good, we don't use cable or satellite so can't comment. Laundry on site but didn't use it. - BarrettsHappyTrails

Manager gave us a shady spot which helped keep our RV cooler during a very hot August in Florida. A Walmart Supercenter right behind (in walking distance) came in handy to finish off stocking up our trailer before a 2 week trip. We liked this campground a lot. Would definitely stay again if in the area. - sandybeachcomber

Of all the questions I answered above they do offer, but it is not big rig friendly The way they advertised it sounded so great and it looks like a dump with many pernament people here. We are on a corner lot and very close to the road and people come very close to our RV and car. We had to ask one of the host to move their golfcart so we could put our slides out. I would never stay here again. - vella

We stayed 2 nights. Being there at high season and their overnight sites were full, they let us stay in one of the longer term sites that was very large. The site we were on was well covered with grass and fairly level. The park manager was very friendly and helped us get situated. We enjoyed the heated pool which was clean and well maintained. This park has about 1/3 park model sites and the rest are for RVs. We would stay here again. - Steve77

This an older park that is well maintained. Site were a bit close, we were unable to put our awning out, but we were in the overnight sites and the other sites look larger. Be careful some of the turns are tight put if you watch what you're doing not a problem. Power was good, water was 42psi, Wi-Fi was good. No cable but we got 88 air channels. The real positive thing is the owner goes out of his way to give you a warm friendly welcome. I marked this campground up one just because of him. - Traveler II

Excellent park. Owners treat you like family. Small park which I like more personal service and you get to know everyone. Very friendly. - Caref
Feb 2017 - $25.00
This is an older park that advertises a heated indoor pool, which is very musty and cold. It has a large number of permanents who think they own the park, cut through your lot like you have a sidewalk. The owners are not willing to do anything about it.
The sites are smallest I have ever seen. The roads are cramped and difficult to maneuver. I had to get my neighbor to move his truck so I could get out.
Suppose to stay 6 months left after 3. Washrooms are clean but very old and in need of work. I would not recommend this park - janel323

We had been staying at an RV park a little further from Lake Wales and didn't like it. We had one week here and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The people in the park were very friendly. I loved the catch and release pond, you might see a gator! Friendly ducks that live in the park as well as squirrels/chipmunks, new to this country, not sure of the difference. Didn't use the indoor pool or shuffleboard, but they were there. The amenities were fine, washing facilities were very cheap compared to the laundromat and air conditioned.
We could get internet from our site and it was certainly sufficient for our needs. We stayed here whilst waiting on our house, I wish I could have stayed longer, great feeling staying here.
Thoroughly recommend it. - Bevo25039
Jan 2012 - $13.00
Rate reflects a 3 month commitment. This was our first time staying and we spent the winter (Jan-Mar). This is a 'community' park in the sense that everybody is family. Sites are spacious, activities are age appropriate, new-comers are welcome--we didn't want to leave when the time came and we've already reserved our space for Jan - Apr 2013. - Lonnie Clark
Sep 2010 - $29.00
It is one of the parks with the cleanest restrooms and showers we've been in. We're full-timers for 5 years now. This is the 2nd time we've stayed here. Highly recommend it. - Marybeth5613

Good value for the money. The restroom, shower and laundry room are five star. Good location and a nice pool. Would stay here again. - DanMain
