56 Parks near Fruitland Park, Florida
Jan 2017 - $18.00
We stayed here for a week on one of the few full hookup sites. The utilities were well placed for easy connections. The sites are a little narrow and close for a state park, but not as bad as some private parks. There is some vegetation between sites. Our Verizon and AT&T cell services worked well, and while satellite aiming for our portable dish was difficult through the trees, it was doable. There is a small network of hiking trails, including one to the second oldest live oak tree in Florida. The park is located in an urban area near The Villages, so stores and restaurants are plentiful within a few miles in either direction. All in all, our stay at Lake Griffin was pleasant and we will return in the future. - NYDutch

Small campground that was very dusty during our stay. Access to Griffin Lake via the "Dead River". Canoe & kayak rentals for fishing or wildlife viewing. Guided tour on pontoon boat out into lake on weekends. Sites are not large but abundant vegetation makes them semi-private. Most sites are heavily shaded which makes satellite reception difficult. Conveniently close to Leesburg and The Villages for shopping & entertainment. - Appleknocker

We stayed 7 nights in two different sites. Both sites were well groomed. Site 13 has full hook ups, level, shady, table, sandy, good tv reception. Site 22, no sewer, shady, sandy, table, no level spot for the trailer, barb write fence (?), shady, good tv, road drains through it. Park staff were friendly and helpful. If you are not off by 1pm they are there to help you. They have you sure cleaned and ready by 3pm. - Beas

NACC should be ashamed to list this park in their directory. We had reservations and when we arrived they said we could pick from either of two waterfront sites. One site had no water and the other had a broken 30 amp electrical plug. There were several large boat hulls rotting in their cradles next to the sites. The majority of the trailers in the park were permanent units in desperate need of repair. We elected not to stay in this park and recommend you do the same. - Dave and Joan

This place is unreal. I won't sit here and run this place down, but don't take your family in there, please! - Jimmy LaFoe

We were given a site with sewer hookup buried in sand which WE had to dig out. The night manager was down with shoulder surgery with no one to cover for him. Our lot was on a hill with sewage hookup so far away at the upper end we had to find a store to purchase more septic hose. Since we arrived late on a Friday afternoon, we were on our own. Cable was NOT provided as advertised. As we left the check-in office at 3:45, the office ladies said "Oh, by the way, you'll have to contact Comcast and arrange for your own cable." No internet, no cable, digging out our own sewage connection buried in sand. The laid up night manager explained that "it's too bad you got that site, but I can't help you, I just had surgery ...... You'll have to wait until Monday. We have an old TV set. Comcast - total runaround which was because this park couldn't negotiate the contract so left all residents & transients to fend for themselves. Luckily the resident living next to our lot left the key in his golf cart!! No one was home until late evening. If we hadn't been able to move that cart and 3 old picnic tables off the lot, we could not have parked at all! We stayed here last year for the month of January. Loved it. This year, disaster. We are hunting for alternative RV parks for next winter. We are DONE here. - Merithew

Nice older park with clean facilities and a large recreation center. My one and only complaint is short stay RVers park on dirt with no patio. - Grouper

This was our first time staying, so the free day reduced our weekly rate to $222.45. Normal rate would be closer to $37 a day. You can never be bored here! They have eight pickleball courts divided into four for intermediate and four for advanced. We didn't use the pool or hot tub but it looked lovely. Tons to do in the area as it's next to The Villages. You do need to pay for the Wifi separately, but at least it was available. They provide cable hookups which we skipped since we have a tailgater and had a nice open clear sky. Many of the sites in the park are shaded.
Lot spacing was spacious with sunny/open exposure. Site surface was grass and featured a picnic table. - Da Keeffes

Mostly a winter over Senior park in a great location near The Villages and Leesburg, and a short drive to the attractions of the Mt Dora area. The park is very pet friendly and has a small fenced dog park. There are also a number of art/crafts, games, dinners, and other social activities available at the clubhouse. Apparently there is new management here and the place is undergoing some improvements. The manager and employees here are extremely accommodating. Overall, a nice reasonably priced place to spend the winter. - dewbon1

Sandy lots for RVs with small yappy dogs all around you.
Wifi only in or near the office.
Received an electric bill for previous tenants, not managed well.
Couldn't get a dish TV connection. Considered buying a MH that was for sale but after several unanswered questions from the office I was approved but wasn't allowed because I have a Labrador that doesn't bark. Such a waste of time for us and the owner. Was then informed by the owner that the office play's favorites. Best to drive past this place and go to another park on 466. - Reenie

Laundry machines were all rusty. Mostly older park models. They put daily and weekly right by road and dumpsters with no screening and a noisy pump that runs most of the time. Office and computer room so small there is not room for more than 2 people at a time. WiFi does not even work in computer room. People walking and driving through sights instead of taking the road, all the time. - mountainfan

This is mostly a retirement park with about 400 permanent sites. There are less than 30 sites set aside for overnight stays, some shaded. The staff is friendly, and we would stay there again as it's very close to who we visit. It's an old park. They will give you the Good Sam discount if you ask for it, but they're not a member. The bathrooms are old and not in good shape. Out of five showers, only two worked. Out of five sinks, two had no water. The water pressure was poor in the bathrooms and at our RV site. The sites were quite level and the power posts in good shape with consistent 50 amp service for the four days we stayed there. Free coffee and donuts in the morning. - grizzz

Pay with cash or check only. This is mainly a snowbird destination with mostly older, but very well maintained, manufactured homes. We stayed here while visiting relatives in The Villages. Access roads a bit tight, but other sites available for even the largest rigs with multiple slides. Only downside is that some pet owners do not clean up their pat's messes, so watch where you step! We will stay here again. - thetravelkids

With tax we ended up at $50/night. Be sure to navigate to the Griffin Avenue entrance. The back roads are narrow and curvy but do-able. Once inside, it wasn't abundantly clear where to stop, check-in and unhook our toad. There is a sign that says to call so we did. A friendly lady answered our call and quickly appeared in a golf cart to escort us to our site. Our site was a back in which gave us a wonderful view of the grounds through our big windshield. We enjoyed seeing horses with carriages going by from time to time. The office recd packages for us and delivered them to our site.
Now for the not-so-good. As beautiful as the grounds are, the design of the RV area is a little quirky. Our back-in site was grass for parking the motorhome (not great when putting down jacks) while the front part of the site was gravel for the tow car. We had a poured concrete patio with a picnic table. We found ourselves wondering why didn't they put more gravel or pour more concrete for the motorhome. It was kind of odd. The other odd thing is the sprinklers. With all that lovely green grass, you know they have to water it. Their sprinkler system is industrial strength and runs every night - specifically 3:47am for 30 minutes. Did I mention it runs every night? The sprinklers spray highly pressurized water at anything and everything. We could hear the water hit our motorhome starting at the back and then working it's way forward along the side. The first night we jumped out of bed to be sure all of our windows were tightly closed. After the second 3:47am awakening, we called the office to see what could be done. They dropped off half-circle pieces of plastic to stick in the grass near the sprinkler heads. They told us to find the sprinkler heads ourselves and did not offer to help. The last quirk was that the park had a significant drop in water pressure for about six hours one morning. Bottom line - we wanted to try something different. We're glad we did but don't think we'd return. - GottaGoNow

We have stayed here multiple times. Beautiful RV park, set up to support equine events, therefore lots of open space for horses and events. Also now have dog events. Our site was a concrete pull thru site with patio and picnic table. Our site was level with easy in and out for big rigs. Most sites don't have shade, however sites 1 - 12 at entrance of park have some shade and are back ins. Grounds are clean! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Good size dog park back by site 45, two areas one for small, one large, just needs a bench for us dog owners. There is also lots of green area to walk dogs. The laundry room is small, but efficient. There is a museum and cafe on property but haven't visited. There is no pool or playground, however the lodge has a pool table. There is also a fishing pond. No highway noise since the park is located a distance off I-75, and the back roads are narrow to the RV entrance. We had no issues with a 40' motor home and tow, just took it slow around corners. Would highly recommend if staying in the area more then a night! We stay here a few times a year when coming in and out of Florida. - KKColorado

This is not a "normal" campground, you rent a side on a huge horse ranch, where mostly nothing is walkable.
You can rent rent a golf cart but only for a whole week ($150) not per day, if you didn't have a towable, scooter or golf cart behind your motorhome you may have a problem to reach the showers or restrooms without having a wet shirt wen you arrive.
The view at of work window is very nice (especially because we were alone on the whole campground).
The wifi doesn't work so we have to use our smart phone as a hotspot, AT&T provides us 3 bars LTE.
They have a huge fenced dog park, separate for small and bigger dogs, the sides are pretty level, long enough for each kind of motorhome and towable and very spacious to each side.
They didn't provide cable TV on the sides but we received 24 HD channels over antenna. - Columbus

We had asked about a future stay and were told we didn't need to make a reservation this time of year. When we arrived they had sold the last site but arranged things for us to stay for three nights, we had planned to stay a week. I tried to talk to the office three times the following morning but even though the sign said they were open at 9:00, there was still nobody there at 9:30, so I arranged for another stay after our three days were up. The manager came by the next day to let us know we could stay after all, but it was too late. It's a no frills park, older but nice. A one week stay was about $185, which is very reasonable...much better value than the $30 a night for a facility with not much to offer. We did manage to pull in the wifi since we were close to the office, even though they said we would probably have to come down to facilitate it.
Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface was a concrete pad with grass. - Da Keeffes

We stayed here for three months. Since we were last here in '99 the park has many more permanent residents and lots of park models. The residents are warm, courteous and exceedingly friendly. The park has a clubhouse, boat launch and 600 ft. fishing dock. Mail is accepted and the park is in an area with lots of lakes, restaurants and medical facilities. For long stays you can arrange cable and WiFi services through Comcast. If you have Comcast where you live you know what that's like. - Mr. Camper

Stayed here 5 nights in November. Approximately a third of the park are permanent residents, mix of RV's and park models. Very tidy and nicely kept. Park is on Haines Creek with a boat ramp and very long dock. The creek is part of the Harris Chain of Lakes and we were able to put our boat in and spend the whole day on the water. Even found a place to eat lunch where we could dock. Liked that this was a small park near the water. Really enjoyed our stay, everyone was very friendly, even invited us to "happy hour" at 4. Will stay again. - CaptDave

We have stayed here for 4-7 days on three trips to the area. The park is old but very well maintained. Many permanent residents, and the open sites are older but very well maintained. People are some of the nicest we have ever met. Very welcoming and glad to see visitors. If you enjoy tennis, pickleball, volleyball, etc. this park is for you. Indoor and outdoor pool very nice. We will stay here anytime we are in the area. Love it. - 4950

During the "season" September to April, the park is hopping. Dances, events, all kinds of sports, and other activities abound. We have been six times in a few months. We are weekend campers. The people in the park are super friendly. Plenty of space for bicycle riding and walking. If you want to do it, it's there. We have enjoyed visiting this campground and will continue to go often. - bicyclecampers

This is a small campground that was once a fishcamp. There are rental cottages and boat slips with a boat ramp and fish cleaning station. The camp hosts are friendly as well as the older seasonal guests that have been coming there for many years. There are coin operated laundry machines and a old public bathhouse. No pool or club house but a nice place to relax and enjoy the wildlife that is off the beaten track but close to Malls and restaurants. Sites are fairly level, mostly grass with a few concrete patios. - Steve St. Michaels

Old fishing cabins. Not really accessible for motor home. Couldn't hook up both water/electric and sewer because of location of outlets. Clean, but definitely not a place you could spend time enjoying yourself. - ajwimp
