There are two transient sections, Pines and Palms. We stayed in the Palms in a site that is three times a normal RV park size. The rate shown is based on our staying for 5 months. There are very few pull-throughs, but back-ins have plenty of room. Utilities were fine and hookups nicely placed. There is no cable TV, so we requested and got a site with good satellite access and local stations can be obtained with an antenna. While there are a few concrete pad sites, most are all grass. If you like mud, you'll love this place. When it rains all that grass is mud, which at least runs the ants off for a while. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you need RV products or services there are two RV dealerships and a Camping World. For everything else, Plant City and Brandon are five to ten miles away.

The front desk staff was rude and not helpful. Fortunately our surge protector unit responded to the low voltage at the pole. It took a while to convince them there was a problem, they found burnt connections inside the pole. The roads are tight and the spaces are tight as well. Only a few sites are paved. The rest are all grass. There is insufficient drainage and the sites are soggy. The showers had mold in the tile grout. WiFi was weak. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Huge park associated with Sun Resorts. Sites for large rigs are squeezed between tall trees or park model homes. Wifi was great. Many French Canadians in our area that were not very friendly. We stayed here to be close to family. We would stay again if we needed to be close to the family again. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is easy to get to from Hwy 4. The sites are large, the roads are kind of narrow, but we had no trouble with our 40 ft motorome. The utilities were excellent. The only drawback to our stay was we were assigned a site with a overhanging branch from a very large oak tree. It scraped along the top of the coach. I informed the staff and the maintenance man and they seemed indifferent to the problem. The price reflects the Passport America discount. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for six days and the lady in the office was pleasant and the grounds were large, with gas and food nearby. My complaints were a few different things such as two of the bathrooms we used were not clean and the shower had low water pressure and cold water. My next complaint was right after we set up our trailer they mowed right next to me on both sides pounding chunks of debris at my truck and trailer as well as stirring up a bunch of bugs. We were under a tree and ants got all over my rig, and my final is we paid 16 dollars for Internet service and it went down almost everyday and had no service half or more of our stay. Overall It wasn't a bad park for a few days. No problems with neighbors. I would stay here again if I was passing through and couldn't find a nicer park. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Another tough one to rate. We were there for the Tampa RV show and the park was packed. We stayed in a "premium" site in the Palms section (primarily English speaking). That, for us meant a back in grass site with no patio and not particularly level. In our case, we had to back up over a small hump in the ground to get to the site. So called "super sites" (paved sites), of which there seem to be a total of 9, are reserved months in advance. The coach next to ours damaged its rock guard backing into their site. This was the bad. The good included very nice, helpful people at the front desk and an efficient check in process. It needed to be because there wasn't much room at the entrance for multiple coaches to pull up. Friendly and helpful neighbors, both seasonal and transient, great walking/biking throughout the park, and a nice swimming pool in our section. Camping World was down the street, LazyDays was within a few miles, and it's convenient to the Tampa Show. A fun evening of bingo in the French speaking part of the park (The Oaks) but conducted in English. The front desk referred me to an excellent walk-in clinic a short distance away that I used to treat fire ant bites that I received at another park. The good definitely overcame the bad. We would return, but would reserve a Super Site if at all possible, or would reserve a specific site, now that we are familiar with the park. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park. We had a "super" site which is cement pad with patio. The campground is really 3 campgrounds in one. Most sites are grass but it appears all have full hook ups. The workout room is nice. If you are interested in the work out room, I recommend staying in the Oaks park. The highway is close so we did notice some noise but not a significant concern. Lots of activities if you're interested. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Many sites are grass and under pines & oaks. Some low hanging moss can snag on roof components. Room to maneuver big rigs in most areas. Staff is friendly but not outgoing. Most questions answered as 'we don't know', don't do that' or basically that's the way it is. CG was full due to RV show and snowbirds. No need to come back here. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Motorhome.

My husband and I stayed here for a week with the special for SunRvResorts. There are three sections in this park. The front seemed to have the nicer, bigger spots. Because of our special price we were put in the back section which had very tight and close sites. The park had a lot of sewer smells. The laundry room was dirty and had broken machines. I checked out the bathroom and showers to see how they were. They are old, dirty and nasty. There is no WiFi and we didn't use any cable. It was also the most unfriendly park I have ever stayed at. It seemed to be about 90% full of Canadians from Quebec: and they did not want to have anything to do with us. Not even a "hello". Even for the price I would never go back to this campground. It left a bad taste for any older SunRV resorts and sadly also for parks that have a lot of Canadians from Quebec. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park was like going to a mini resort. Tengo internet is the downside. We were parked near McDonald's so I was able to pick up there WiFi. Pool was great people were friendly and it is a walkable park and large enough to get good exercise. We stayed here prior to flying out for Christmas and then came back after Christmas for another 2 days. Above rate is PA which is honored until Dec 31. Which was super. Easy access to all kinds of amenities and sites to visit. Also right next to Bates RV and about 5 miles from Lazy Days and Camping World is moving to just down the road on the other side of I-4. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a long level W/E pull through in The Oaks; perfect for a couple of nights. Our spot has a low limb, but the site is huge and roads are large enough that we can maneuver to avoid with our mid profile fifth wheel. Staff and other campers are friendly. Free Wi-Fi at the activity center. We were glad to find this spot in February by calling in the AM (and glad to not be just down the road). There is a great farm market just down the street. Would have rated higher if it had a dog park and Wi-Fi at site. Would return here. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for the Tampa RV Show, so we did not pay much attention to the activities in the Park. There are two sections to this campground, The Palms and The Oaks. The published address is for the Palms, the Oaks is around the corner. Both parks were full during the week we stayed. Sites are grass, plenty wide and long; roads are paved and a little tight but everything is well maintained. Back in sites are staggered so you can pull-thru if you have a cooperative neighbor. Seemed to me, most of the sites had trees that blocked satellite signals. Cell signal was good (Nextel/Sprint). The pool is heated! No problems with the Canadians. Employees are excellent. Both parks were absolutely full, but they found us a site with sewer and moved us to it on the second night. I will stay here again. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a nice campground with friendly staff and most amenities. It was crowded: sites too close together. There was no cable or Wi-Fi. For the price I would have expected more. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed for a month on a first time special of $279 for the month. We stayed here because of the good rate and we had a good experience at a sister park in Naples. We stayed in the Palms which is much more suitable for a larger rig. The sites are large and water, sewer, and electric are adequate. The rest of the park is old mobile homes, fixed 5th wheels with rooms attached, and by the looks of it, very French Canadian in the busy season. Not my cup of tea. They are very unfriendly and rude!! Off season the park is open and roomy. Grass grows fast and parking is mostly on grassy sites with no concrete pad. If you want that, they have a few but at the usual $38/night. The closest Publix, Wal-Mart, etc is 6-8 miles away in either Valrico or Plant City. The park is easy in and easy out as it is right off I-4, just 4 miles east of I-75. If we needed to be in the area again we would stay, if offered the special rate. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
