37 RV Parks near Fort McCoy, Florida
Mar 2017 - $29.00
Too many ATV riders and too many folks who refuse to abide by park rules. Most of the ATV riders watched their speed while in the park but some drove way too fast. Others had radios/music players that were way too loud. There were several non-ATV campers who let their dogs run loose, which is c9ncern for those of us with small dogs...which we keep leashed as we're supposed to. The 50 A campsites range from somewhat unlevel to impossibly uneven. The 30 A sites are somewhat better . Since the weather was cool during our stay we were able to get by with less current but in hot weather this would have been a real problem. The clubhouse is very roomy and recently renovated. - dhaney1944

First off - this is now a KOA Park so the listing title is a little bit off. We visit KOA's often when we travel. This location is definitely different. The sites are much larger than normal for a KOA. However, this location is in the Ocala National Forest and the nearest town (Silver Springs/ Ocala) is over 20 miles away - so come fully stocked with supplies. This KOA easily supports big rig RV's. This appears to be a 'go-to' destination for ATV enthusiasts since it joins into well over 100 miles of ATV trails in the National Forest. The only downside is the location of the water, sewer and power hookups. Whom ever originally laid out this park clearly had some weird ideas. Nearly all the sites have sewer on one side and power and water on the other side. Most modern RV's have all hook ups on the 'drivers' side. Therefore, make sure you have sewer and water hose extension with you. Other than that - this is a really nice park and worth the drive. - rv time

This is a large park on the edge of the Ocala National Forest & very close to Lake Oklawaha. Not sure if the park has access to the lake shoreline. This park does attract many ATV owners to ride the trails in the national forest. Sites are grass/sand covered. Some sites are shady & some sites are sunny. There are also some privately owned sites that usually have some improvements on them (pavers/patios) that are not available. There are some sites that are reasonably level, but many sites that are unlevel to varying degrees. The power pedestals/water connections are at the back of the sites. The sewer connection on many lots are an unusually long distance from the pad site. Electric worked well, but water pressure was very low. Cable tv is only available in the clubhouse. We turned our OTA antenna to 210* & were able to receive the 4 major networks in HD. Wifi worked well in the mornings, but was very slow in the evenings. Baths & showers were very clean. Laundry room appears to have been recently remodeled, but only has 4 washers & 2 dryers. The clubhouse is a large building that contains a pool table, cornhole boards, & a nice looking pool outside. It's 21 miles to Walmart in Palatka. This trip includes a 3 mile stretch of unpaved road. Inquire at the office for directions. The roads in the park are all paved. The staff was very friendly & helpful. - c lewis

This is our second time camping at Salt Springs Recreation Area. This year I was able to use my Senior Pass, which gave a good discount on camping fees. Our rig was 40' long + a long bed dually truck and we barely fit in Site 15 even with the back end of our fifth wheel hanging way off the concrete pad. We parked the truck sideways and one wheel was a little on the grass, which is not allowed, but no one came by and fussed at us. We love this campground, but wish that AT&T got service here. We were here for a total of two weeks and we had to drive quite a way down the road to get any signal at all. The campground is working on getting wifi installed. It worked one afternoon for about half an hour, then never came back up. I imagine it will take awhile to work all the bugs out, but will be so much nicer than having to drag the computer up to the office to get wifi. The staff were always very nice and friendly, especially one lady!
We were here for a geocaching event and stayed for the huge numbers of geocaches available in the forest that kept us busy for the whole time. We did drive over to the springs, but it was chilly and we didn't swim. We wanted to extend our stay, but our site was reserved, so we moved to site 98 in the walk-up section. Really like this area better, site was bigger and there is a huge grassy area between the backs of your camper and the ones across from you. The only downside to this site was that you had to back your rig up an incline. There are a lot of limbs hanging over the roads. Wish the crew would cut some of them to prevent scraping the taller rigs. We will be back again soon! - LZee11

The staff was friendly and helpful from the moment we drove in. You can walk into the office where there is a sitting area usually used for anyone needing the free WiFi access because it's rare you get any signal once you pass that point, you will however get a ton of TV stations. They also have ice and a few things you might need for the camper. The spaces are very nice and clean when you arrive, they're concrete with "FULL HOOKUP" (Yay!!!). It was quiet both day and at night but there's nothing that divides you from the neighbors it's completely open but we didn't have a problem with it. If you have overnight quests that are unable to park in your area there's an overflow parking area within walking distance of the sites. The springs are really nice (drive there though), there is a roped off area for swimming that doesn't allow alcohol although if you go to the other side of the rope there are usually boats and people hanging out in tubes, canoes and kayaks playing music and socializing..that's where you can drink if you so desire. If you come out of the park and turn left about a 1/4 of a mile (maybe not even that far) on the left there's boat, kayak and canoe rentals and you can get to the springs from there to. You can also launch your boat from there with access to Lake George. There's a gas station, a small grocery store and a large ice machine nearby. Not a lot of shopping or restaurants but that's a good thing sometimes. Enjoy your time there, we did! - 2Austins

Spacious sites, quiet, very nice campers. Full hook ups, the only con would be poor wi-fi. The springs were nice. - Lyn Hirons

This park is part of the Ocala National Forest through recreation.gov. It's rustic and quiet and each site is quite private with heavy vegetation between sites. The restrooms are clean and showers are hot. Water spigots are conveniently placed between each campsite at the road. Nice dish washing pantry at the bath house. Camp hosts are extremely nice, stopping to chat or answer questions. Bear/raccoon proof trash containers are everywhere. Dirt sites and interior roads however that didn't deter our group on Touring motorcycles. Great riding in the area and stores are up the road. A firewood vendor up the road delivered firewood to our site for a couple bucks. We had a great time with 18 people and 12 bikes all tenting. There was a beach and a lake, very clean and nice. Sites all had lantern hangers, metal lattice picnic tables, fire rings and shade trees. We'd stay again, it's quiet and back to nature. - Full-timers

This is rustic camping at it's finest! This is a first come, first serve national forest park. Two great hosts greeted us at the gate. There are security codes for the gate after hours, and security codes for the nice neat clean bathrooms too. Well-spaced out sites with plenty of palmetto bushes, tall live oaks, dripping Spanish moss and quiet surroundings make this quite a tranquil experience. Each site has a huge picnic table of a plastic coated grid mesh that we have never seen before. Each site also has a built in charcoal grill, fire ring, and tall lantern hook. We are still camped here as I write this. Air card internet via Sprint allows me to access the net from this remote location. We were only going to stay the weekend, but we decided to stay 2 or 3 more days! Our folks are camping in the next site for only $6 a night, with Golden Age passport. There is a dump station and also water spigots placed all over the park, usually within hose distance to most sites to fill your camper up again if needed (don't leave your hose hooked up all the while, that is not fair to the other campers) Some sites are pull through, others are short and better for tents. We are here with 2 big diesel rigs 40-footers. The two friendly hosts are busy all the time, cleaning, picking up stuff, chatting with folks and answering questions. Nice beach with fenced off swimming area for gator protection. Bear-proof trash containers spaced all through the park at convenient places, not just at the entrance. Our friends are coming to join us tomorrow on the next site, and we might just stay a few more days. - kareninthewoods

very good. nice sites, quite a few are reservable, we drove in early and got an open one. have a part of the lake for swimming in warm water and at the same time swim with the manatees. they were there every day, rented a kayak, paddled out and let them swim to you! good gator watching, fishing and a lot of different birding. - yosemitesam

We have camped here many times before. We came across a private owner on craigslist renting their lot cheaper than the official resort was. I was a little worried that the park had gone down hill because of some negative reviews on here but we had no problems. There was $5 fee for our car and golf cart at the gate but we were told up front so no problem. They have added a large dog park since we were here last. We normally spend one full day at the springs, but once you have done that the state parks have nothing else to offer. Love staying here because we have constant access to the lake and pools. We dropped our boat in the lake on Sunday and didn't put it back on the trailer until we left on Friday. Stayed anchored on the beach and were able to jump in and go whenever we wanted. The bathrooms are not fancy but they were very clean. We used them every night instead of bothering with our tiny camper shower. At first I was disappointed the site was not closer to the water, but our site in the back of the park was very shady and quiet and we didn't have to worry about through-traffic while the kids were out playing. Plus the lot was long enough that we were able to leave the truck hooked up to our 30 ft trailer and still park the bikes and golf cart in the back. We plan to book same site next year. - FloridaRVfamily

This older park is considered a private, condominium community, that is open to the public. It has many owners and long-term renters. A $5 cash fee for non-owners is charged at the gate. We rented a site through the Elite Resort Management company by phone. They do have an office just outside the park. The sales person was very helpful and made sure we knew there would be no cable television due to the cable company digital conversion process. We use a Verizon MiFi and had okay service for the cell phone and internet. Internet was available in the Lodge. Everyone we met was very friendly. The family pool was closed, but the other pool and hot tub were being used quite a bit. A book and puzzle exchange is located in the Lodge. Our pull-through site (#3) was long and wide enough so the Jeep could be parked next to the coach. We did have to position the car and the picnic table to stop golf carts and people from walking through the site. Have to admit, it didn't stop all the walkers! Electricity, water, and sewer were all in good condition. - DiplomatTraveler

This CG seems to be transitioning to full-timers and several sections are dedicated to them. Nevertheless, we were greeted with a smile and found the facility to be just fine. Our site had a lake view and was relatively level. Others had to use plenty of blocks to get level. There is a beach and a play area for kids, as well as fenced area for dogs. Lots of shade. The restrooms and showers were clean, but getting old. WiFi, cable TV and cell service satisfactory. - Rusty Tailpipe

Good swimming, lots of tourist. Nice staff. Silver Springs is a great place to see. About 20 minutes to Palatka and also very close to the Ocala National Forest. About 2 hours to Orlando. Wi-Fi spotty and a few tv channels but that was fine as we were there for Silver Springs. - EACreech

Overall this was a nice park. We wanted someplace wooded and secluded but was disappointed when we arrived. The sites are small and mostly taken up by snowbirds.
Staff was friendly and site was clean. - Senora Frog
Apr 2016 - $9.00
Stayed Feb 2016 to April 22 2016 Clean park. Management and staff were friendly. Sites sand-grass, sunny/open to some shade, nearby to spacious lot spacing, and included a picnic table. There were several activities in the park; the park has been underrated by people that formerly resided in the park and gave it a bad rating due to their behavior in the park. Its a nice park. Good value. - E Hayward

Would never recommend this park to anyone. Dirty bathrooms, no toilet paper, pool not open most days, manager and others in park get visits from sheriff too often, says credit cards taken but manager made us pay cash for two months in advance. Rain makes it a swampland, had to go barefoot to get to vehicle or wade in water and mud and ruin shoes. Could be great park but poor management and too much drama. - Traveler2440

Short bumpy hard dirt road entrance from highway. Excellent Wi-Fi. Sites are all on dirt or mud, when it rains. We were there when there was mud. 10+ sites were too muddy to use. No cement pads/patios or site picnic table. Very close to the Ocala National Forest. Takes PA but only for stays of 3+ days. Friendly management escorted us to site. Didn't see any showers nor were there any indicated on the map. Suggest staying here if you like a rustic setting, and then only during dry times. Not a great value. - LeeCA

This park is one of those mobile home/rv park hybrids. It is kept very clean, and all units are well-kept. However, for a bigger rig like our, the interior roads are VERY narrow ad the sites are also smallish. You can only access their WI-FI if you are in one certain building or very close to it. Cable TV quality was simply horrible. We went to OTA because most cable channels were unwatchable. They were kind enough to let us use their clubhouse, but to enter it we had to walk by a grease recycling thingie that just REEKED like methane. There is a nice little cafe just outside the gate that had pretty decent at reasonable prices. - dhaney1944

Stayed a week here and would have been happy to stay much longer. Lovely park. It was full. Majority of lots owner occupied by snowbirds. Areas with park models and class A's only. On site is restaurant, candy shop, fitness center, laundry facilities, propane filling, walking trails, dog parks and 3 pools. Only negative was no wifi and few snowy cable channels. - jackiej

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days in our new 5th wheel camper. It was our 1st time ever camping rv style so we stayed close to home. Nice place to learn the ups and downs of our new found favorite adventure. Everything was convenient and easy for first time campers. Be prepared for no internet, tv, and/or spotty cell service. All-in-all, nice place! - Sleek

Very clean campground and facilities! Phase one loop is grass and gravel sites with a bath house and boat ramp for the lake. Also has pavilions for lunch or just relaxing. Tent area also in its own area......We stayed in the second phase which consists of two sides with a huge hill between. The bath house and 2 washers and dryers are on the front side, along with the handicap concrete sites. Electric 30 & 50 amp and water only sites. Dump station is onsite near the exit to campground. Lots of hiking and bike trails to check out. About 10 miles to Palatka and the St Johns river. - LaMonte

This was our second time staying in the park. Everything was clean and the staff was friendly. They are cost cutting so no soap in the women's bathroom (men's bathroom had soap) and no fans running (unless they are cleaning). Bring your kayak, bring your fishing poles and/or boat, bring your bikes, and bring your hiking shoes. There are many places in and out of the park to enjoy outdoor recreation. The town of Palatka is about 10 miles away and has everything you forgot to bring. St. John's River is not far. No Internet or tv reception (unless you have a satellite, which we don't). Sites are roomy and shaded. They also offer tent camping, but watch out for the rattlesnake. We only saw him once and he was a beauty. - bicyclecampers

Very nice owners who live on site. The grass was well kept. The sites are grass, level, with a picnic table and well spaced. The neighbors were friendly and it was a quiet campground. There was a communal fire Saturday night that was well attended by permanent and temporary campers. The only downside is the rough roads. - esta34950

We stayed in Spot 14, The owners are on site. The park is clean. The owners are real friendly people. We really enjoyed our stay. The location is quiet and out of the way, and an hour or two from the amusement parks or the beaches. I highly recommend this campground if Quiet and Serene is what your looking for.
Oh, and the Cable TV worked awesome for our entire stay. The bathrooms and laundry facilities are clean and well kept. The water pressure in the showers is awesome: "like getting a massage every morning." We will stay here again. - Jack Mac Innes

Don't waste your time. Have stayed several times since 2012. Has gone downhill drastically. Owners should sell or shut down. Yes, that bad. She was constantly complaining about being broke, and was bad mouthing full time tenants. He is just plain nasty & miserable. Bad interior roads, very unkept grass, & some pets were loose. There was even a skinny lady walking around asking for us for pot. No wifi, poor cable, wash machines still broke from last time we were there, dryer took 3x to dry...you get the idea. Felt unsafe. Neighborhood is trashy. The good, restrooms clean. We will not return. Traveling in a fifth wheel. - Lunchy

Just a warning to others....... Their website is VERY misleading. We needed a place to stay for a month in Central Florida. We called from the previous campground that we'd been staying at to see if they had availability. The lady on the phone said "we only have one left". Since the campground that was our first choice was already full we went ahead and booked it. She wanted our credit card over the phone. I know better than paying for a site before seen but she said it was the last one! So I gave her the credit card number which she said would be charged that day. (Absolutely no refunds)
This could be a very long story but I will cut to the chase and comment on discrepancies with their website.
Concrete pads - I don't see any. We are parked on grass that sinks when it rains.
Restaurant- There is no restaurant on site much less that delivers. There is a mini mart at the entrance. Don't expect to get your milk and bread there, but if it's beer and soda you are after you are in luck!
Beach/Swimming footsteps from your site - There is no beach on the property. There is no water that you can swim in on property unless you don't mind swimming with alligators! There is a beach that you can see from the property but you need a vehicle to get there. It is part of the National Forest system so you have to pay fees to get in.
Laundry - Yes, there is a laundry "onsite" but it sits facing State Highway 40 and has a big sign with the hours written on it (the hours on the sign are incorrect) so it is open to the public. There is only COLD water wash available.
Boats and jet ski rental (As described on the Passport America site under 'highlights') - None.
Don't bother sending an email inquiry as their website suggests. I never did get a response. I also would caution you to NOT get anything of importance sent to you here via mail. We never did get the FedEx "overnight" envelope that was sent to us. Everybody that we met that was staying here was very nice. - RunAroundSue
