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

Level, wide, sand/shell sites. Friendly, informative staff. Clean facilities and park. Quiet, quiet park, with miles of hiking/biking trails. Trails are mostly in the open prairie (wet and dry prairies) and a couple in a hammock. Good wildlife viewing: deer, caracara and turkies in campground. Birds, gators, wild pigs along trails and in sloughs. If you like night skies with no light polution this is the place to be. Florida's first Dark Sky park. There are 3 camping areas: family (standard site setup), equestrian (corral), astronomy (no trees). Excellent park, well maintained. We've been here several times in various months. Like late October, early November best. - GDoug

We really enjoyed this state park. We stayed in two sites during our stay; both were level and had electric and water. FYI, if you have a satellite dish, sites 16-20 look like they would work. There is also an equestrian campground down the road. Road into the park was gravel but the dust was not bad, well worth the drive back. Make sure if you want to do the weekend buggy ride that you reserve ahead of time. There are miles and miles of bike trails but many are sandy, so you need fatter tires to navigate them. Verizon signal was good here. - Pinkflamingo71

This was a great park in the middle of a large prairie. Shell and sand base surrounded by palms and live oaks. If here just a few days, bring your supplies. You're a long ways from town. We had water and electricity. Dump nearby. Verizon LTE worked well. We had good satellite reception. - smitty12

A very clean maintained park. All campers backed in at the same distance making the rows look nice. Parking for your car is right beside your camper. RV and car is parked on cement. Lots of nice grass. It is a Air Stream park, but will take other campers. NO shower house. But a nice big club house with restrooms. Some activities. Everything is close by at Melbourne. They do not except mail at the office, but have their own post office, if you know your address/street number. Will stay here again. No picnic tables provided. Sewer connection is under the RV when you back in. No pull throughs. This park is now for the big rigs, as the sites were shorter. Our motor home is 35 foot and had no trouble, but bigger RV's would. Call first to check. - consmith

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

The water is often cut off. So if you don't fill your fresh water tank, your out of luck. When they do a water treatment, they often use too much chlorine. One day they did it and I had a full blown asthma attack while taking a shower. Luckily there's a hospital nearby. I confronted the manager and she apologized, but did nothing about it. I ended up using my fresh water tank for showers until the chlorine smell went away (which was about a day or so). The maintenance crew consists of two men well into their 70's. The lawns looks terrible, it has big brown blotchy spots everywhere. Plus tons of ants. The rules that we were given were not enforced. There are a few blind corners, in which I've almost had accidents at. They have dangerous picnic tables (rotted and falling apart).
The residents are pretty nice and helpful, they've mentioned that this park owner isn't very attentive to the park (They've had a few owners). They have said since the new owners have had it, that they've raised the rent, but don't upgrade the park.
The spots are close together, so if you and your neighbor have your windows open, you're going to hear each other's conversations. It's a very quiet place though.
They use to have WiFi for $20/mo, but the person taking care of it said that the park owner no longer wanted to deal with it. So it was removed. The pool is not heated. Their bathrooms aren't very clean. Also there is a gentleman who is always at the public bathroom area. Whenever my wife went to use the bathroom, a man would constantly hit on her. I told the manager about this and she said she would talk to him, but that didn't stop him. The park easily floods. If you don't own a car that is high off the ground, you run a serious chance of your car flooding. I've heard (from the residents) that when the owner comes to visit, she's very short with them and has been known to insult some of them. - Mike Thomas

This is not a 55+ RV park, though the mobile home section of the park is. [Admin Note: Called the park and was told that those under 55 were welcome "for a night or two".] The park grounds are beautiful, but the electric, cable connections, bathrooms and laundry are not maintained and are in need of updating. The water here is HORRIBLE. My trailer's sinks, shower, and dishes are heavily coated with limescale deposits. My sewer pipe was full of iron deposit. The electric breakers constantly blew, the water was shut off often without notice due to leaks on the property and sewer back-ups and leaks were common. The residents are very cliquish, and management does nothing to foster good neighboring. Park rules are discriminately applied and most people ignore them all together, unless their neighbor is breaking a rule, which gets promptly reported to management. Most of the trailers here are older models and the sites are close together. There are no pull-through sites and the newer, bigger rigs have trouble backing into sites. There is no park-wide Wi-Fi; it's only available at the clubhouse, which is closed in summer. No picnic table at the site. The park was quite noisy, dirty, and run-down. - CoachCouple

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