Past reviews are pretty accurate. Strange utility hookups - you better have long power cord and water hoses. Lots of trees but we got Dishnet, no wifi but verizon jetpack worked ok. If they have Chicken ala Orange on the dinner menu - don't go. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

The rate shown is based on a one month stay at the member rate, and does not include electric. Everyone from the front desk staff to the maintenance folks have been as nice as could be. The park is well maintained, with the maintenance folks regularly filling in low spots on the roads and sites as needed. Escapees are overall a friendly group, and the long term residents and temporary guests here are no exception. Our level tree shaded site is right next to a run off pond where we can sit on the concrete patio under our awning and watch the sandhill crane that visits the pond daily. Our portable satellite dish works fine here as well as our Verizon cell phones and data service. We will definitely be back again. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A Super Walmart and other stores, restaurants, etc., are just 5 miles north on I-75.

We made our reservations for this park fairly late in the "season", so had to make do with a less-than-optimal 30 amp space instead of the 50 amp we prefer. After a few anxious moments maneuvering nose-in with our big rig (as required by the utility placement), we grew to enjoy the place. There are quite a few Escapee members (as are we) in residence, so the typical friendly attitude and activities that group sponsors were in evidence. Sumter Oaks features quite a few large trees and an adjacent marsh. Sandhill cranes, ibis and other water-loving birds were frequently feeding in the area. Apparently the pool has been out of commission for several years, but the clubhouse boasts a pretty large library, arts and crafts room, lots of jigsaw puzzles, and even a somewhat playable upright piano. During our week there we were invited to participate in a New Year's Eve party and a delicious potluck dinner. We understand there is also regular bingo, cards and musical jam sessions. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The nearby Withlacoochee River and adjacent (really long and fully paved) Withlacoochee Trail are favorites with us for great running, biking and kayaking.

Campground layout is unusual (sites alternate directions; roadways are 2-way but only 12 ft wide. I was told that it had been a mobile home park. There are lots of shade trees in some parts of the campground. We were assigned a 30-amp site in full sun that is supposed to be a pull-through but was blocked on one end. Manager argued that we could pull through and then husband came over and agreed no way. Took several hours for coach to cool off due only 30 amp power. Not sure why we were assigned this crappy site when there were plenty others that were much shadier and had 50 amp power. Would stay here again, but now know to ask for shade and 50 amp. Shame that the manager couldn't figure that out on her own and take better care of us. Price reflects SKP member rate. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an Escapees Rainbow park and like some, have rather grumpy and standoffish staff manning the front desks. Fortunately, though, also like most Rainbow parks, the residents are the best around! Escapees tend to be a rather friendly bunch when taken as a whole, and Sumter Oaks is no exception.

Our site was level although dirt, the power was clean, and the water reasonably tasty for Florida, so overall, really no complaints during our stay other than the front desk staff. We will definitely stay again in the future. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We paid before pulling through, which was foolish on our part. Once we started driving around, the park looked like it is falling into disrepair. Buildings needed repairs, grass was high, weeds growing around some of the long term tenant vehicles, signs old and faded. We had asked for 50 amp, but were given a site with only 30 amp. Went back to get the correct site, and asked how to get into the indoor pool. The pool is closed and the person said it would not be reopened again. No WiFi, apparently no cable, either. Since we had just barely paid, we were able to get our money back and go somewhere else. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Low price for Escapees members includes 30 amp, water & sewer hookups. Located 1.3 miles from I-75 and traffic noise can be heard, but OK for overnight. Helpful staff. Mostly open sites. Planned activities for seniors but apparently the snowbirds have mostly departed by April. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park was nearly empty, but it appears in the w,inter it is full of snowbirds. It is convenient to the National Cemetery a few miles away which is why we were here! Park was a little run down and needed some updating, but staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Escapees park, but others also welcome. Large sites, lots of live oak trees, but branches trimmed so no low overhangs. Some sites have 50 amp. The first one we tried the 50 amp did not work, so always a good idea to check if this is important to you. Some sites good for satellite, but the tradeoff is that they're mainly unshaded. A cypress swamp in the rear of the property harbors mosquitoes, but county sprays, so not too bad. Very quiet in the summer. Facilities older, but very friendly staff. Convenient to I-75.

Typical of most Escapees parks, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed here for a week, and saw a few old friends and met some terrific new ones. The park is clean and well maintained. The hookups were well placed, and our site had a concrete patio, although not all sites do. The lack of cable TV and Wi-Fi were negatives for us, but our Verizon cell phones and data service worked very well. Our over-the-air antenna received 6 channels plus their sub channels, but the programming was limited with only ABC of the 3 major networks receivable. We will return here in the future.

This feels like one of the oldest parks in the Escapees club system and it's looking and feeling older every year. It is the only Rainbow park that doesn't offer Wi-Fi and the nearest hotspot is at least 8 miles away. However, it does offer a phone line hookup in the club house for anyone who can still use dial up to go online. The indoor pool is closed because the heater is broken. There is no cable TV and we were unable to pick up any of the networks with our aerial. After we were set up we discovered that less than 10 feet from our door was an unsealed sewer manhole cover. We were only staying for one night so with threw a big mat over it to stem the stink. There were many other sites available and we couldn't help wonder why they would park us in that site. Having said all that, the people are very friendly. We've stayed here before but we'll check to see if anything has changed before we return. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an older park. Yes, but not run down. We spent two months here, and loved the park and people. The mangers were top notch, and the help were also. The pool heater was down for a couple days, but repaired when the part came in. The sites are level and roomy. We will be back again. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate is the Escapee rate without factoring in electric and propane that one uses. No Wi-Fi is an issue for me so likely would only go back to this park if I had a Mi-Fi. No cell phone service was also an issue. The park is very tired looking and needs some updating. The managers were very friendly and we had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner there.
