I agree with prior reviews. Its not likely you will just be in the neighborhood and stop for a while at this location. You have to be headed here, as it's out in the country.
Got pull-through site in partial shade. Plenty of room. 115 volts with a/c running. No cable but got 56 channels on antenna at 350 deg. magnetic. Got satellite easily, but could be a problem on some sites. Fishing pier.
Its all about fishing and quite. If you need it, you better bring it with you. Passport America member. Nice location. - Libby

Nice no frills RV Park. Boating and fishing is the theme at this park. The park is clean and has a friendly staff along with guests. Located off the main path, not many stores close by so stock- up before you arrive. The park has many big trees, weeping willow type and the grounds are natural. The park is pet friendly and wide open space. Free WIFI is a bit spotty, we have our own so it switched back and forth. We did use our Dish for TV so that was not a problem even with all the trees. We were able to get 40 something local channels off the antenna. No cable. There is a little store with some snacks and such. The park has many park models, but most must be snowbirds as the park was extremely quiet in August. Our plan was to stay 1 night and we stayed 3. Picnic table was brought to our site shortly after we registered without even asking. We would stay here again. - rdmike

We stayed here for an overnight stop on the way to Ft. Lauderdale. It's about a 20 minute drive from the Turnpike but relatively easy to get to. There are limited pull through spots for overnight/short term stays. We couldn't get satellite reception due to the trees and there is no cable connection even though there is a cable wire at the hookup. No antennae TV available either. It's a very pretty and well kept park but there is nothing to do unless you fish and nothing close by. It was nice and quiet for an overnight stay. We would stay here again if traveling to South Florida. - dickens

River Ranch offers you good recreation for children. They have a zip line, rock wall, archery, fishing, etc. There is a restaurant on site that is okay. We take our granddaughters there and they enjoy all that is offered in the way of recreation. However, almost all the activities come with a cost, so it can be pricey to stay here. - har-fl

Love the "old Florida setting" of this camping ground. Our children enjoyed horseback riding as well as the activities. There are nice biking trails for the family to enjoy along with our picnics. Great place to stay. - SanAntonTravelers

I rated this campground a 9, I would have rated it a 10 if the camp store wasn't so expensive. We bought a quart of milk at $5.00 and 2 pastries at $4.50 each. The biggest problem was that the pastries were old and we couldn't even eat them.
Now for the park.
We were on the water in space 448. The reason they gave us that spot is because they said it had shade. It did not. 449 had the shade. The grounds are immaculate. All RV spots are individually owned, so each spot can and will have different amenities. The RVs share the property with Westgate timeshares. They can't use the RV amenities and we can't use theirs. Everything that Westgate offers has a cost such as the rodeo, the entertainment areas; miniature golf and so forth. They have a petting zoo which is free. The workers at the petting zoo really take pride in the animals. When I talked to the 2 guys that were working it you could tell that they really wanted to be there. The pony ride was $5.00 per child and it was a really long ride. 3 of my kids did archery and that was $8.00. The rodeo was $17 per adult and $9 per child. We enjoyed ourselves very much. There had to be 500 people there. The performers were very talented. They had barrel races, bull riding, and horse skills. The kids participated in the calf scramble, which was hysterical.
The sites on the water have a pier at each spot. we had a porch swing. There is a separation from each space by foliage. You don't feel like you're on top of each other.
The RV spots that were not on the water seemed like you were in a forest. The trees were so old and there was Spanish moss hanging from them.
The 2 pools and hot tubs that are available to us seemed to be adequate, however the park wasn't very crowded.
The bathrooms and 3 laundry rooms were very clean.
The closest town is almost an hour away, so make sure you have everything you need before getting there.
Most of the people there are owners and everyone was friendly. - sflabrkr

The campground is great, trees and a wide area to maneuver through. It is a very remote campground. Excellent for star gazing. From the entrance it is 4 miles down a shell rock road through the prairie to the family campground. Go slow and enjoy the view. There is a small sundry store about 7 miles from the Entrance on 700A, but it is a good idea to bring all your supplies in with you. It is a shell rock from the entrance which gets your vehicle covered in dust on dry days. Mud on wet days. Firewood is available for $5. Pay the Iron Ranger. The bathroom/shower facility is excellent. I used the very clean and spacious single bath. There were several tent campers. I did have to make a u-turn for the dump station but plenty of room. Trash dumpster and recycle bins are also located at the campground exit. - Big Gator

I read many of the previous reviews and they are all accurate. This is a small, nice, quiet, remote campground. Make sure you bring all your food and other needs in with you because it's a long way back out. It was a gravel road from the entrance (which is small and not clearly marked for entrance fees, on the honour system, so bring exact amount), which gets your RV all covered in dust. The site is great with trees and a wide area to manoeuvre into as well as picnic table and fire pit. You can buy firewood too (on the honour system). The bathroom/shower facility is great; very clean and spacious. There were a variety of size RV's there as well as tent campers. We saw deer and birds. At night the star gazing is awesome but the best for us were all the fireflies! I love fireflies and we don't have them where we live so that was a treat! The dump station and trash were convenient and they even had recycle bins. Yay for them! - new FL camper

If you like quite, dark nights, and remoteness, this is the park for you. Wildlife viewing is abundant. Sites are dirt/gravel, close together compared to most state parks, and most are wooded. This is a dark skies sight. A resident volunteer provides sky gazing opportunities twice daily. Weekends buggy rides are made out into the prairie. Buy groceries and fuel before heading to the park because it is miles and miles to either of those. Park staff and volunteers are very helpful. I'd return here. - SunStar203

Older park in quiet area, designed for older travel trailers but accommodates newer RV's. Immaculately clean, manicured and maintained. Good spacing between sites. Sites have separate driveway for tow vehicles placed beside RV. - Scenic Cruiser

We DID NOT stay here. This review is to explain 2 things about this facility. 1. The website shown on RVPR is incorrect. It should be www.lyhairstream.com, and 2. They cater to Airstream trailers. The lady I talked to said they have 2 sites that will accommodate up to 40 foot regular RVs. When I called, they did not have space in those 2 sites. - therealSimpsons

This is a gem of a campground. Shopping, restaurants, and excellent medical facilities close to this campground. Best kept secret on the East coast of Florida. Would recommend this campground to our camping friends. Each lot has a shed and concrete pad for your rv unit plus patio. I give this park a five star rating. - User3547

This is our fifth trip to this park. Very quiet, close to the beaches and shopping in Melbourne. - melvingregory

Nice adult campground. Had a lot of rain (3" day before) so sites were a little muddy. Very friendly/helpful staff. Great community room with WiFi (available in park for $) Had 50+ channels on antenna (but a lot in Spanish). Camped here for 4 nights in a Fiver. - Bubblehead651

A family member in the area turned ill, and this was the only location in the area we could get a monthly spot in last minute during the high winter season. We are grateful for that. First.. the good: - Quiet, friendly community - Awesome management - extremely helpful, friendly and attentive - Beautiful and well maintained pool - Lovely lake in the front, very peaceful feeling when arriving - Community organized activities going on all the time - swap meets, potlucks, game night, water aerobics, meals, etc. - Easy access to nearby Malabar Scrub conservation area with 500 acres of hiking - Well kept, and easy to use hook-ups. - While they are advertised as a 55+ park, they are lenient on the age - but still remain adult only keeping kids out. Now.. the less than good: Our cost for our spot greatly influences our expectations, and at $825/mo for the winter rate - this place did not merit the price tag. It is at least $100+ more than any surrounding RV park, and about $300/mo more than what we found to be the 'going rate' in the area. But this was the only place that could take us when we needed it last minute. Here are things that had the price tag been lower, we might not be as critical about: - Wi-Fi is not included. If you want access to the park wide Wi-Fi, you purchase it extra from another resident providing it at $20/mo. - Cable is run to your site, but you have to pay extra for it - it's not included. - The sites are rather close together, all in a row down the street. Beyond the lake in the front, this place is actually kind drab looking. All sites are grass with a concrete patio, and mostly level. Some have shade and a little landscaping. The plus is, they are extra long and you have a lot of wiggle room to position yourself front to back. Plenty of room for your rig, a vehicle and anything else. - Feral animals running around. Our supervised leashed cat was attacked while we were there by a stray cat. - No recycling. Only a single dumpster for the entire park is available. - Laundry center is way too small for the size of the park. The long term residents boasted about how they will take all four washers, so that others can't work their loads in. We would return here if needed, especially in the summer when the price is significantly lower. - Technomadia
