5 Parks near Kenansville, Florida

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

We've been coming to this site since the 1960's and it will always be a fish camp to us. It has been well maintained with each new owner but not without progress and higher prices. 10:00 a.m. check out seemed a bit early too. There are now many permanent residents in newer modular homes being built thus pushing out the long time seasonal visitors. I missed them hanging out in the bait house with their great stories to tell and poking fun at each other. As the bait house was empty I guess all that experience is passed on now. Fishing is the main stay here and it's a friendly fishing spot to launch your boat and clean your catch. But the cost to camp here is the same whether you have a boat to launch or fish from the bank. Hmmmm. Oh there's a few grand kids here that come to visit Grandma's house and have fun but I think it's more for a ride in Grandpa's boat and not for the shuffle board. Since it's one of the few spots to access Lake Marian I'll be back I'm sure. - harborcityscrambler

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

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

Nice small park. Sites good. Many trails but many too wet to hike. Gravel road into the park soft after the rain. Lots of wildlife. Would stay again. - K Willie
