6 Parks near Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Sep 2014 - $60.00
Drove in to have a look. We were interested in staying for a few months. We drive in, towards the back, and then straight back out. First, it's already packed like a sardine can and it's only Sept. Second, it's in a bad part of town. Third, it's outright scary in there. I'd rather stay in a Walmart parking lot. We never even bothered to talk to anyone at the from office, we just left. - Camp time

We were on a pull-through site for three nights. All rental sites seemed to be sand/gravel(?) pads and were very narrow, with no patio. (Our next-door neighbor commented he was amazed we had enough room to extend our awning--he didn't, nor did others). Sites had very little vegetation, so bring your shoe scrapers and mats (and dog owners take note, too, because there is not much vegetation for a dog to use and no real dog walk). Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi (free) connection was spotty; though we used it every day, it was not available all the time. The best thing about this park (and, I'm sure, what you pay for) is location. It is right near the FL Turnpike, and within walking distance to a few small restaurants, drugstores, and Publix (if you are a decent walker). The park was quiet. We would probably look elsewhere when next in the Fort Lauderdale area. Our rate was after Good Sam discount. - floridapip

We had reservations for one month for myself and another friend. We found it was so dirty that I moved to a Texas state park and my friend to another park. I have been traveling all over United State for the last 5 years, and this park is the worst. They charge $925/month, but it is way too expensive having no activities, no pool, or billiard table. The only thing they had is bingo once a week. Very bad campground. The owner should invest some money to clean up this place. I will never go to this park again. - gaetan santerre

Although not a lot of facilities, it is a very spacious park with marina access. Sites are large and well maintained. Tri-Rail and interstates are close to the facility. Just a half mile from Bass Pro Shop. Good drainage for Florida's downpours. Small, but very comfortable park for those who don't need a lot of entertainment on site. - Wally & Margaret

Good location for wanting to be close to Fort Lauderdale. Not too far off interstate 95, so that was convenient. Unfortunately, it is also directly under the flight path of the small planes that land at the Fort Lauderdale airport. When they are landing they are only 100-200' off the ground and are VERY loud. Mostly big rigs and 5th wheels. - Mike.US

I am only reviewing the campground just to clarify the information previously posted. We had spent some considerable time searching for a campground in the area to stay for about one month and because of the previous review, we did look at this one. It is certainly very nice and small. It is mostly for people who are camping with a boat. It does NOT have any public restrooms or showers for the RV area. No cable, no Wi-Fi. For us it was definitely overpriced for what they did offer. This is not a campground for those who want some typical RV facilities. It is a nice area for a large, self contained motorhome that has no need for any facilities. - laringrp

This is the worst park I have ever stayed in. The section we were in was next to Walgreen's and the highway. The neighbors in the next site (horrible broken down camper) partied until 2 AM. The street noise was horrible. We complained and ask to be moved but management refused. They would not refund our money either. There were ants everywhere and got into our camper. The sites were very small and very difficult to get in and out of. The park is in a very bad neighborhood. No cable TV and Wi-Fi did not work. Info on their web site is very misleading. - PeachEtta

Sites are very small. Not big rig friendly at all. We barely fit. Location is next to a Walgreens & across from the main post office. Not really pet friendly since the grass area was a strip of grass next to the medium. Lots of toads& carriers parked there. There was a small patch of grass next to one of the community rooms. I don't know why it says it's kid friendly it is not. A lot of residents aren't friendly to passers through. Pros the staff is very friendly. Wouldn't come back. - jcpjane

First, it's in Ft Lauderdale, which in itself is an urban area. The campground is located between a Walgreens and a strip shopping. Across the the street is one of the main post offices. You turn into the campground, which is not a private road. The road is shared with an assisted living facility. This campground was not crowded it was overcrowded. Most of the spots were barely big enough to accommodate the RV. Tow vehicles, trailers and toad vehicles were parked along fences and grass areas. In order to walk our dogs, we had to use the median strip of the public road. So, I wouldn't call it pet friendly but they do accept them. The residents weren't very friendly. They kept to their own groups (which 80% French Canadians). The staff was very friendly. The roads were paved but maneuvering was difficult due to the cars, etc. parked on the side of the road. The spots were level. There were a lot of activities even though they were gearing down for the season. The pool was clean. I wouldn't camp here again. I gave it a 5 because of the staff and the activities. - c+j p 5rvers

We came here to visit a relative in the hospital. Only campground with a vacancy.
The sites barely allow for the extension of slideouts. Little if any green space. Gated access due to neighborhood concerns.
We had to walk our dogs outside the park because seasonal campers were less than receptive. Difficult to communicate with others unless you speak French.
So little space that we were guided into our site head on and had to run our utilities under our RV. Fortunately we had an extra hose extension for the sewer. - DJanis

We stayed in the summer and the park was pretty empty with the exception of three RV, all other were permanent residents. We stayed for seven days. We were told to take two of the side by side pull through sites which gave us plenty of room. When the park is full in the winter these sites are on top of each other. The park is pretty run down and little maintenance was preformed during our stay. There is no nightly security and the only emergency number is to an onsite maintenance person. A very noisy party at the pool ran until 2:00 am in the morning one night. Lots of bugs and rodents were seen around the park. - Nevadadon

I camped in the winter when southern parks are full. They assigned two rigs per pad. Each faced the opposite way and you have to run your hook-ups under the rig. Being sandwiched in like that I had to have a person on each corner to help me get in and out of a pull through! When our slides were open you could not walk squarely in between the two. I had to do major tree trimming. The limbs that rested on top of my trailer (literally) were infested with ants that moved right on into my home. No one at the park assisted me in any way, other than to run my credit card. I'll have to say that the campers were beyond friendly and helpful though! As a last resort I'd stay here only in the summer if I got my own pad. - WanderingSolo

This is a large park, with many permanent sites. Very small sites, all paved. It is located in a highly industrialized area of Ft. Lauderdale, surrounded by scrap metal yards, lift rentals, etc. Most of the traffic on the road to the park is dump trucks and it is surrounded by highways. It is also located directly under the runway approach for landing aircraft to Ft. Lauderdale airport. On the good side, it was fairly friendly, the Wi-Fi was mostly OK, although it was intermittent at times. It is centrally located, so you can get to wherever you want to go fairly well. What I found most interesting is that English is the minority language. It is overwhelmingly French Canadian. - gsgroff

This is the worst RV park we have ever stayed in, from the staff on site to the facilities to the reservation keeping. We were one of three rigs traveling together, two Class As and one 41' fifth wheel. We made reservations 9 months in advance and asked for the three rigs to be together. We called to confirm sites a week in advance. When we arrived, they had us spread all over the park because people that were in the sites reserved for us wanted to stay longer, so the staff let them. Then when we arrived in the fifth wheel, the staff sent us to the end of a cul de sac to a site that was meant for Class As as a pull in site. There was nowhere to turn around so we had to back a fifth wheel all the way out. As far as facilities goes, the only way to access the wifi was at the Rec center, so there was no wifi signal to connect to at your sites. The pool was nasty so there was no place to swim. At the sites, there were no picnic tables.
The staff at check out was slow and unorganized, resulting in a line of rigs trying to get out of the park with only one lane open because they allowed cars to park in the second lane. That left everyone waiting hot-tempered as those in the front were trying to check out with a slow staff.
The park sites are tighter that a tick. RVs are so tight in the sites, there is no where to park cars, resulting in cars and trucks being parked in the road. This makes it very difficult to tow through and park at site.
Stay away from this place, there is absolutely nothing good to say about it! - Bill and Jeanne

Stayed here for its location. The marina/yachts were the ONLY thing it has going for it. Staggered sites make it crowded and on top of each other. Campground NOT kept up. Needs major site, WiFi, cable improvements. Site expense not turned back for site, campground improvement. Staff was rude and un-concerning. Never stay here again! - NJ-Montana

My husband and I think this park is wonderful. Some of the less than optimal things being described in previous reviews are true, like sites being close together(this is to be expected when you are in a populated beach town), part of it floods(normal experience after rainstorms in the South), can't turn around at end of culdesac(most parks have little challenges like this). We feel the good outweighs any small inconveniences you may have when camping, like beautiful flora and fauna(tropical trees, flowers and lots of wildlife to watch in the middle of a city - birds of all shapes and sizes, iguanas and manatee), nice and helpful neighbors and let's not forget, you can be on the water or at least right by it with beautiful yachts surrounding you. It really feels like a haven. We stayed there for a month and I literally smiled every time I pulled through my gated community. - Cappy Jack
