8 Parks near Clermont, Florida
Mar 2016 - $10.00
The last two reviews summarize a lot of valid points. This park is hit or miss for transients (we visited on Coast to Coast) as far as a doable big rig site. We got pretty lucky to get a site not too bad for maneuvering. Other points not mentioned by others are the electric is strong, water pressure varies but even at low times is usable. Trees (pines and/or live oak) can drop a lot of stuff on your rig. The park is very well maintained and most permanent setups are nice. Nice pool. Good laundry. Almost daily activities if you are into that. We've stayed here before and saw good improvements since the last time. - cwier

Our primary concern is the narrow roads making it very difficult to negotiate a 40 ft motorhome. The many trees made satellite reception impossible. The sites are very narrow. We were lucky to get a site we could negotiate into. Our site was narrow dirt with two large trees and large tree roots to stumble over. We had no picnic table but if we did there would have been no room for it. We would not return even though it is at no charge under C2C Premier. - RalphA

A crowded mix of old and new 'park models' and transient RVers. Small tight sites for big rigs. Restrooms/showers not the cleanest, but o.k.. Constant 'road noise' from Rt 27 on one side and Fla Turnpike on the other. Park staff friendly and helpful folks who reside in park. "Bee Hive" meals reasonable and good !! - Our Mini

The resort is mostly snowbirds hence our May visit. There are over 1000 sites, three club houses with pools. The transient area is located close to the main clubhouse hot tub and pool. Pool is huge! Our site was back in and grassy. No patio and very little shade if any. No free WiFi except at the office area but you can purchase reasonable daily and weekly rates for even streaming video. Bring pads for your jacks as its sandy. Great area to walk your pet or pets. Garbage has to be transported by you to very front of the property. Easy to do but you'll need a car or mobile device it's not walking distance. We mainly came in the off season to play golf and avoid the crowds. The 18 hole course is immaculate and very challenging but not too bad for the average hacker as its fairly short. Water pressure good, sewer good, I would definitely recommend a surge protection system like Progressive industries as the voltage is marginal at least in our area. - Claymb

Older gated Florida park but kept up. Golf course meanders through. Roads are narrow but adequate. Lots of big oak trees with hanging moss in our area. Provides nice shade but need to watch branches. We had to cut down some very low branches and moss to feel comfortable. Some areas open. Workers pleasant and helpful. Wifi ...use your own. No cable but some channels on antenna. Lots of activities during season. Would stay here again. - Jmh510

Watch for trees for your dish to work or not. They need someone to escort you to the site due to the size of the park. Took us about 20 minutes to find ours. Sites not well marked. All grass areas needed mowing. Mostly park models and RV's that are permanent. That is OK but they don't seem to have requirements on upkeep. Some are nice while others are very dumpy looking. People are nice. Looks like they have a lot of things to do beginning in October. Would stay again for a few nights, not the entire winter season. - dfw

The park itself is beautiful. Landscaping is nice, although a lot of it is a result of the owners rather than the park itself. The sales staff are there to sell - don't ask them questions about the park in general as they'll give you a blank stare. What makes this park are the people. They are so friendly. The site was comfortable and we ended up staying longer than we expected. The location is great - close to everything but away from the busy road and civilization. The big negatives were: the wireless, the massive amounts of ants and the constant workers careening through on trucks at 7 am. The thing is, we never could figure out what they were working on. We figure they are to prep sites to sell, but even then, buyers tend to do this themselves. That said, I wouldn't think of buying here unless they completely ripped up their shoddy job on the pavers and have the electrical inspected. They seem to have a ton of problems with that on both fronts. Overall, though, this is a great park and we wouldn't hesitate to come back. - Kamnel

We camped in a 36' motorhome with trailer and had a pull thru site that had more than enough room. As previously posted this park has more owner sites than transient, but we found everyone to more than friendly. Our neighbors offered us their golf cart to run to the store and we barely knew them. The site was level and had all pavers with nice shrubbery. The pool was heated and all the facilities were spotless. The staff was more than friendly and willing to lend a hand. Although you need to secure a cable box from the office, the picture was crisp with 60+ channels. The wifi was so so and could use some upgrading. We had a relaxing and enjoyable time and would camp here again. - Jgrif72

There isnt much "Elite" about this rv park except the price. It's very clean and well maintained and every site is paved, but other than that..... No picnic tables, no fire ring, no grill, and a free WIFI that is the absolute worst!! The staff at the office is extremely nice but they have these CAMP NAZIS, that I guess might be work campers or maybe just snobby neighbors who don't like visitors, they walk around and tell you what you're doing wrong. Mind you it's nothing against the posted rules, they just don't like it apparently. Real downer on a stay to have someone constantly coming to your site and bothering you. - Chicopiloto

Loved this RV Resort. We stumbled upon it while looking for a place to leave our RV while renting a villa at Windsor Hills Vacation rentals as we live in it full time. Some shaded sites, lots of open sites, narrow but long sites, lots of long term people, many nicely cared for pre-fab small homes, area was neat and clean, prices were reasonable, it was quiet, our site was level, our hot spot WiFi worked great, full hook-ups all worked, our first site was cement but our second was gravel. People were friendly, the staff was friendly, the facilities are clean, lots to do and many activities if you are so inclined. My only complaint was the careless golf cart driving of their guests. While in our towed, I almost got run off the road twice by elder patrons driving the wrong way, completely ignoring the large arrow directional signs and speeding by me to cut in front of me and turn. Other than that, we both enjoyed our stay. - PERRELLAS

Booked for a month-would have left sooner if they'd given refund of any kind. Overrated, no maintenance performed, no customer service-they don't want to interact with customers. Fire ants everywhere. Activities-no direction. If you're not over 70+ yrs old you don't even get to know anyone. RV guides like Trailer Life have overrated this place. Would be great for few days at Disney but not month(s). - RV Traveler 2014

My husband and I stayed at Lake Magic from December 01 to March 31 and really enjoyed the resort. Prior to our arrival at Lake Magic, we stayed at another RV resort further north and decided to drive down toward Kissimmee to see what we could find closer, as we had purchased annual Walt Disney passes We visited numerous RV campgrounds and so-called "resorts" in the area (Winter Haven, Clermont, Orlando) and were quite taken aback by them. We stumbled upon Lake Magic by accident and decided to book the rest of our stay there.
Lake Magic has large, paved sites and the hook-ups are easy to connect to and where they should be (i.e., not way in the back of the site). There is minimal shade in the resort near the sites, but we prefer that as we have a satellite dish. Cable TV is offered at the park, for an additional fee; however, we did not utilize it. I have heard though that the cable reception is wonderful at the individual sites.
There are laundry facilities onsite that are managed by an outside vendor and, although the machines are older, they work perfectly fine. Washing machine is $2 per load and the dryers are $2 per load as well. There is a laundry facility directly across the road near Publix, however, it is quite pricey.
There are two pools located on the property, one next to the clubhouse, and the other one next to the laundry facility. Both are good sized pools and have plenty of lounge seating. The resort also offers pickle ball courts, shuffleboard, and tennis courts, as well as a playground for kids and a basketball hoop. There are a LOT of activities to be had at this RV resort if one so chooses to participate, such as Bingo, Poker, various crafts, movie nights, pool parties, etc.
We will be returning in the fall. - The Diesel Gypsies

Beautiful campground. Spacious site with a place to hang our hammock. There was a picnic table and fire pit. Campground was very quiet most of the time. This is snowbird season, so most people were of retirement age, which likely kept the noise level down. We don't watch a lot of tv, but did notice that we picked up many channels with our antennae. As with most state parks, most sites do not have sewer hook ups, but there is a dump station. - harvmoon

Stayed here for ten days. This was a nice campground. We would stay here again. Closed to the Disney parks. (30-40 minutes with traffic) Well worth the drive for the inexpensive cost of the park as compared to parks closer to Disney. - JulieDR

This was a beautiful park. Most sites were very private. Our's was extremely private. Bathrooms were well maintained and water pressure was fantastic. Lots of exploring available. We even saw a baby alligator crossing the road. - MacFam

We have just purchased our motor home which came with a one-year membership and this was our first opportunity to utilize it. One of the first lessons we've learned about Thousand Trails is that they DO NOT assign spots. It's first come, first serve. While there are many spacious sites in the park, we were not fortunate to get any of those spaces. Unfortunately our spot put us nose-to-nose with neighbors and pull-outs were inches away from each other. We learned later in the week that you can relocate once during your stay when a "better" spot becomes available. Ahh, next time...There were no picnic tables in this area. The narrow interior streets were two-way and little room for two vehicles to pass. All of the residents around us were friendly and helpful. The laundry and shower facilities were clean and modern. - McRV

Second time at this park. Has a few upgrades but still could use more level sites. Had to take an unleveled site the 1st night and could not use slides. Moved to a nice level pull through full hookup 50 amp site the next morning. Arrive early if you are coming. While there are 900 sites, they stay full all the time. Nice people and facilities. Lots to do and entertainment. - teepee51

Wifi is supposed to be available, for a huge fee! None was available at our site. Free Wifi at the community building is very poor!
Construction noise started at 7 am! Glad that is over!
Electrical and water issues regularly.
Few picnic tables. If you ask for one, they will "put you on the list" but none ever arrived.
Snack bar is closed.
Several bathrooms/laundry rooms are under renovation and closed.
This park is busy in the winter...why didnt the construction work on the campsites and the buildings occur during the summer when they have very few campers?
The fenced dog park is welcome.
The childrens game room is gone.
The "store" has very few items, mostly Thousand Trails promotion merchandise.
The registration is a nightmare...having to drive around to find an available campsite. The most desired ones are not available, with signs and/or bags on the posts.
The front-desk young lady was very kind, professional and friendly. - Umbrella

We stayed here while going to and from Disneyworld which was only 15 minutes away. The staff were very friendly especially the guard house staff. It's mainly snowbirds who arrive in October so it was very quiet when we were there. Almost 1000 sites but only 40 of them are RVs, the rest are fulltime trailers. 8 bath houses, 2 pools and a large club house where you can get good free wifi. You can't get it from your site. Mini golf and other activities for free. Everything was very clean and tidy. You can not come in after 10pm in an RV so remember that if you only have the RV to travel in and plan a late night. Happily stay here again. - kiwitravelers

This is definitely not a big rig friendly place. With over 900 sites, most of them are permanent trailer homes and the campground is designed like a gated community, with very narrow, winding streets. We were fortunate to get a site with a street perpendicular to our site so we could back in straight, but I don't see how one would get into a site otherwise as there is no room to back up from the street and there are no pull-throughs. Our site had a little bit of grass in the back, and a canal running behind it. Unfortunately, the water appeared very filthy - dark brown and sludgy looking. There was a nice picnic bench on the site, but I really wasn't motivated to sit and work out there overlooking the dirty water. I have not had a chance to check out the rec center or pools. From the outside, it looked very nice. In order to use any of the games like shuffleboard or tennis or anything requiring equipment, you have to give a refundable deposit. It would be nice if where you do this (at the guard house) wasn't located at the total other end of the park where the games are! We could walk to the center from our site, but not easily to the guard house. Would I stay there again? NO, because of the layout of the roads within the park. Too difficult for a big rig to get around in. Also not too many other RVers - 99% are homes. - cherylbrv

The water is fine, first time with MH much better this year. Stayed here last two years with friends in park model. People are friendly, no problem with sites, ref size. On site 371. Only complaint is this site is noisy with diesel pick ups going by. Picking lemons off the tree on site. Does not get better than this. Pool clean, warm, and close to all sites. - Tin man

We have friends in this park so our rate may be different for others. This park is owned by the people staying here and it is very nice. Being off of I-27 I expected lot of noise, not so. Landscaped nicely, clean pool and the people we have met are very friendly but being the off season, July, not too many here. Lots of golf in the area and cheap. We will come back again if we do not wear out our friendship. - rvngolfer

Very neat, clean park. Most lots are paved and landscaped. Very active, friendly park. The lots in this park are individually owned. There are lots for rent and for sale by owner. - User1095

Clean, but a bit barren. Just stopped here for overnight. It is easy on/off from turnpike, and not expensive. However, it is NOT near any restaurants, etc., so plan to bring your own dinner or head out. Quite a ways to have some choices. About 8 miles to restaurants and grocery stores. Again, good for a pull off the turnpike spot. - zeldazabar
