This is a nice park at a reasonable price. This is our third time staying and we like it here. We will be back again. Nice, relaxing, and quiet. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

The sites are tight as described by other reviews but with guidance from park was able to enter and exit just fine with a 28ft class C. No cable television but plenty of local stations from antenna. WiFi was fine, a little slow at times. Many snow birds packing to leave as we stayed near the end of March. Very friendly folks with a lot of activities scheduled during the winter months. Pool was a little cloudy the last day, unsure why that happened but the park is schedule to replace the pool beginning in April with a greatly enlarged area - 2 pools, hot tub, etc. Have to watch for the campground sign on US41; park is behind a boat storage and repair shop off US 41. Quiet area, no noise. Would stay here again. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping, etc. up and down US41. Campground access is better heading south on US41 toward the RV park. If traveling north you will have to make a U turn; one is there. Not good for long rig.

Second stay here during season. Come here to meet friends in area. Last year site was very tight and in a section too close to dump and trash. Decided to try once more and we had a better site in a different section. Sites still tight and was told that previously site had been under 6 inches of water. Fortunately no rain this time. This CG almost all returning seasonals. So all know each other and can be quite clannish. Very dog friendly, with lots of dog bag stations. Hookups very convenient, no trouble leveling. Except for shopping and eating out, not so much in area to do. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

We absolutely love the park! Staff and guest are the most welcoming we've yet to come across. The sites are spacious and shaded. They have many ongoing activities throughout the week. Many campers have been coming back for years. We would definitely stay here again and recommend Shady Acres to friends and family! We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

We spent from December 2016 to April 2017 at this RV park. We had a great time! The park was very well maintained while we resided here. The staff was very polite and very helpful with any concerns that we had! The residents of the park are very friendly and there is so much to do and enjoy with others if you want to meet new friends! We especially loved the Saturday night at campfire ring that has a band made up of local campers! I loved all the crafts, bingo, all the extra sports-game activities that you can involve yourself to meet others! How fun is this!!! The park is very close to shopping and beaches as well. We have already booked our site for next season and cannot wait to return. :) The weather has been great this winter and if you are looking for a place to have fun with fun people give this place a try! We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

I like the park. There are things to do, they have an activity calendar which is awesome & it's cheap. I love the cafe, however the restrooms are usually dirty & the showers don't have hot water; it's either lukewarm or cold, especially if there are two people using the same shower. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Cabin.

The management and staff have really outdone themselves. The overall appearance of the park is clean, tidy and well organized. Management and staff are friendly and helpful. The events are well planned and very reasonably priced. The food and entertainment has been outstanding. Kudos to Shady Acres RV Park. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Travel Trailer.

After reading previous reviews we were skeptical about this park, but on a whim decided to give it a try. We stayed from December until first week in April. It was a wonderful decision; we made so many great friends, joined in some of the many activities offered at the park and were just so happy it was everything we were looking for. If you just want to stay in the park and relax, there is something for everyone, from cards, bingo, horseshoe tournaments, dinner/dances, crafts, pool parties - just to name a few. The park is well maintained and any problems or questions you have are immediately addressed by the staff. It is dog friendly and other dog owners do their part to clean up after their pets. The women's showers and restrooms were very clean; the men's showers were not as well maintained. The deck areas (which there are quite a few) offered tables and chairs - some cushioned. The Tiki bar is a neat place to hang out..they open it and serve beverages a few nights a week - soon to be rebuilt offering more seating and more service. The pool is clean - and also scheduled to be expanded to a 2-pool area with hot tub. The majority of people we met are planning to return next season and we are all looking forward to the updates! Overall, a great place to spend the winter season, lots to do, our favorite is the great music at the Saturday night fire ring where everyone can join in!! We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

The park was well kept, restrooms and hangout areas were clean. I love that they have a fire pit area with hammocks to relax and a pool to cool off. The other residents and staff are very polite and friendly. The only issue I came across was the signal of the WiFi wasn't strong and kept disconnecting.

The bathrooms are disgusting, the same bulk of black hair stayed in the shower stall for the time I was there, which was a week. One weekend I could not access the bathroom because of the door code had locked. Well yes there is a manager on site but you can't ask her for anything after her hours she works which are 9am-3 pm. But she does spend lots of time at the pool drinking and talking about others along with other residents. Agreed very unprofessional but that is what Shady Acres likes. Maintenance is very good if you should need anything. Residents are very friendly and eager to help with whatever you might need. Laundry is new. Trash area has lots of wild life around it. There is also a rat infestation in the resort beware. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

This was my first stay in Florida and it rained 13" in January. I was here till the end of March and weather improved. The park staff were stretched thin trying to deal with all the water and mud, but did an excellent job overall. Many people here have been coming here for years and all are very friendly. The pool is too small, but next year a larger one will be ready. I enjoyed my stay immensely and will be coming back next year. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Initial impression on the phone an hour away was that they didn't want us to come in. We arrived at 5:00 pm on the nose (office closing time) and they acted like it was midnight...they were very put out. The first quarter mile of driveway was horrendously bad and we really thought we were going to a dump. Then we make the final turn into the park and the "curb appeal" was amazingly beautiful. Then we meet the clueless and rude office staff only to be handed off to a very personable site escort. Talk about extreme conflicting first impressions...

After we settled, we walked the grounds. Occupancy rate at the moment is maybe 30% so it feels roomy. When the place fills up in a couple of months, it will be extremely crowded in here. I think we have the only pull-through site out of 300 sites. The sites are grassy and level and utilities are good, but it will be sloppy when wet. Landscaping is pretty especially in the front part of the park with the pool, pond, main facilities, etc. Facilities all look new and extremely clean.

$24/night is the "PA" rate. Not a true 50% rate because we had to pay $3.00 for electric and additional $ for WiFi (both are included at regular $42/nightly rate). This gives us a feeling of being nickeled and dimed to death.

We would stay again if we knew management had a better handle on customer service and the rate policies were cleaned up. We stayed at a bargain rate, but would have felt better paying more and not feeling like they pulled a fast one on us. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

The road into park was much worse than many dirt roads I have used while hunting. Have used park for 3 years, and it has gotten worse annually. Placed on inadequate location in old section with required 50a mp hookups. Sewer hookup higher than outlet on motorhome. Location tight for 42'. After a one-hour wait and 3 trips to office found manager making a personal call.

She arrived and in 15 seconds said space next to us would not be used. Upon arrival stayed for 30 days. Power not only on our spot but also on whole street kept going out. Park employee tried to identify problem without success. Did get electrical contractor for repairs; did fix some issues but we still had disruptions. Inexperienced manager kept saying it was our unit.

Manager very condescending to guests much older. She had no idea what was happening in her park. We along with others will not return next year. I would not recommend this park to anyone.

The newer section didn't seem to have problems. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.

Washing machines and dryers out of order more than working, always waiting for parts(since November). Barking dogs are a big problem and no one enforces rules about anything. Tenters have been thrown out after 3 or 4 incidents only, some get to stay regardless! People are friendly and many long term visitors. Management is absent and local manager is very inexperienced.

Generally a very nice RV park. Our site was not adequate for the size of our RV. The showers and restrooms were clean and well maintained. WiFi service was good, but you pay for it. Area around the lake deck was was trashy and the pool area is way to small for the number of people that use it. Get there at 8:00 am to get a lounge chair. Lots of organized activities.
