Does not have a playground. Park is split in 3 sections. We stayed in the Sun section. This is not a fenced part of the park. We were put right by a very busy road. There is laundry and really nice showers. The laundry is the cheapest I've found yet. Kids loved their rec hall. This is not a park for kids though as there is nothing for them to do. If you can adventure out that is best. There was a farmers market and flea market that we went to right across the street at the fairgrounds. It had a lot of fresh produce but also typical flea market items. Bring cash. Many of the vendors do not take cards. We found this out when we went to buy apples. Our side did no have a pool,it was across the busy road. As there is no fence around the park, I felt unsafe and did not let the kids play outside as I normally would. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Very large resort with sites on both sides of the road. Majority were very well kept. Huge sites. We were in a parallel site. Some trees in some parts. We will return here. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Price reflects TT discount at Encore parks for monthly rate. We booked this stay so we could leave our rig in a safe place while we flew away for Christmas. We were in a parallel site across the street from the office, and because there was no one else around we were able to pull into it without too much jockeying. There was plenty of room for us to park our HDT at the nose of our 5th wheel, and while our front yard faced the campground road, we had a good amount of grass. Bathrooms were very clean. Close to several small towns, easy access to gas, food, restaurants, and fun things to do. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Restaurants in Eustis, Tavaris, gals in the office had good suggestions. Check out clear water Rock Springs not too far away - gorgeous, worth the trip! Also recommend Stavros & Sons (Italian, pizza) across the intersection, good food and decent prices.

Good paved interior roads, some of the sites are parallel to the road and a lot of sites do not have 50 amp. Our site was one of the parallel sites, and there was plenty of room to park car next to or in front of the rig. We did have to disconnect in order to jockey around to try and get level. The employees were very helpful in helping us and went to get boards to use under the tires and jacks. The clubhouse was large enough for our rally and also had a large kitchen and a couple of pool tables. Cable hook-up included in the price. No issues with electric or water. This is a huge park and part of it is across the street from where you check in. Lots of traffic on that road and noisy at times. Wifi available with extra cost. It is also across the street from Lake County Fairgrounds. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

At arrival, we were greeted by polite staff. After waiting for an escort to our site for about 20 minutes, we decided to use the map to find our site on our own (the escort was driving an RV to storage across the street, and was prohibited from returning by heavy cross traffic) We selected a different site than assigned. When the escort finally made it, he registered the new site with the front office. Like most of the sites we saw there, it was made of grass. We had to use our levelers for the first time because the ground was quite uneven. There is no cement patio, nor do they have picnic tables (a first for us) nor fire rings. There was dog poop near the power box and the water connection. Bring water pressure regulator because the shore pressure is extremely high. We got free cable TV connection that showed about 8 channels (CNN, Fox Cable, MTV, VH1, Food Channel...). We could not get any over-the-air channels at all. The showers were very clean. They have two large dog parks. The campground is very quiet. We came to this site, because all Thousand Trails parks nearby were booked solid. So I can't say that we will never return to Southern Palms RV Resort, but, if we do, we will make sure to choose a better site. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a large park (over 600 sites) divided into sections in a popular area. All sites are grass and gravel back ins with rear hookups (bring extra hoses). Reservations are made thru corporate center, so be sure to specify 30 or 50 amps. Our nightly rate reflects five nights of camping, taxes, resort fee, and Good Sam discount. Sites are not uniformly level but are manageable with some effort. Excellent response from staff to repair our electrical hookup. WiFi hotspots are available around park. The campground is convenient to good restaurants, shopping and lakes recreation. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The stay was fine but the mens showers NEVER had hot water. My wife claims her side was fine.

The grass needed to be mowed. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Surprised when we arrived at what we saw. All grass with a cement patio. The cable had to be repaired before we could hookup, good thing I carry a very long cable because it was about 40 ft away. There was no wifi as they were changing providers. Lots of permanent residents in trailers of various conditions. No dog park as advertised. Cut our stay here short. They were nice about issuing a refund. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here after a failed stay at a much smaller and claims to be more personal park. Not true, Southern Palms was one of the friendliest parks. They are very big but they treated us like we were their only guest. Their pool is great, the grounds were kept up, and the facilities were clean and very nice. I would recommend staying here if in the Orlando Apopka Eustis area. The extra drive is worth it. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We arrived on a Sunday, the office was closed but reservations were left in the registration box. Maps were included but the print is so small, it's difficult to read. A bystander offered help, pointed us in the general direction. The sites are very tight, short and not well marked off. Water pressure and electric were good. The entrance is along a high volume traffic road and difficult to get in and out of at times, especially with a RV. Not sure we would stay here again. Lots of permanents and the park was apparently created before long RV's came along, consequently no place to park toads or towing vehicles. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very disappointing. Upon our arrival, they attempted to charge us more than what our confirmation email had quoted when we made our reservation. The grass was six to eight inches long and we were told it would not be cut until the end of our week. Neither of the coin-operated dryers in the "updated laundry facilities" worked so we lost our money which could not be refunded. They said they could only give us a laundry card (which we would have to do laundry again to use). The high speed internet service was so slow that the web pages would not load. We were never able to use it. We left a message for the company that provided the service and it took them four days to return our call. They were still not able to do anything to correct the slow service. To call this a "resort" is a big stretch. Our "elite" site was really just an overpriced campsite. Keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very clean, well-maintained park. The staff was very friendly and went well above and beyond what one might expect (helped me unload toad and move tow dolly). We stayed here with a club (The Challengers) and were given use of the clubhouse for cooking and other functions. The only reason I rated this park a 9 instead of a 10 was the highway noise (not terrible but definitely audible) and the not-so-level sites. We would camp here again with no hesitation.

Stayed here 3 weeks, off season, very nice park. Used pool and hot tub. Staff very friendly and helpful. Was extremely helpful and recommended way to decrease cost of stay. Provided information anytime we asked. Will definitely stay again. Only issue was unavoidable as grass was sprayed on tires when lots were mowed, but able to wash off before we left.

We stayed here as our second choice, the first one turned us down because of our 3 dogs. If you like nice wide open spaces with natural growth boarders, quiet surroundings, and friendly people, then this place is not for you. The first site they wanted us to squeeze into was across from the office. It was next to a permanent trailer and only about 25' long. I said no way, so I had the "guy" ride me around for about 20 minutes and found one across the highway. Their place is on both sides of a busy, noisy road 44A. Ambulances running 24/7. We should have left, but we were waiting for our reservations at Disney. It does have 900 sites, but half are permanent trailers. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
