This was my first experience in any RV park so I don't have a point of reference, but what stood out was the helpfulness of Ray, the park owner. He took us to our spot to examine it prior to escorting us down and even helping us set up.
The spot itself had some exposed tree roots but that didn't pose a problem. The spots are pretty small for a large class A such as our Outlaw, but we managed to get in and out without any trouble.
Neighbors are very friendly. We enjoyed our 3 night stay. Tremendous value with our Passport America 50% off. - Outlaw Pilots

Older park built before today's big rigs. Very tight backing into my spot. Many older trailers and permanent residents. - MikeMayNaama

We used this park as a base to go to Disney World and Universal studios. It is an older park with most guests being permanent, but all were very friendly. The spaces are very tight but the owner did an excellent job of guiding us in. The bathhouse only has one shower in each of the men's and women's, so timing is everything. - Oldbillm

Rate reflects monthly stay. Electric is extra charge. This is an old Florida fish camp RV Park with lots of big oaks and larger than normal lots. It's low cost for the area. Downside is noisy air boat concession on the property and it's in the flight path for Orlando airport. Management not so great but workers are nice and very helpful. - User3435

The rate I am quoting is the monthly rate of $425, electric not included. I am enjoying my stay at this park. It is an older park that is under new management this last year, and they are fixing up the park and making it a lot nicer. If you are making a reservation, call after 2 PM. Nice size lots, old but well up-kept facilities, free cable, mail box available through local post office (on site boxes). The only drawback is it is two miles from Orlando International, and Boggy Creek air boat rides are here. So a little noisy, but still the best campground in the area. LOTS of bird life, and a very nice staff. My tire actually fell off (broke lug nuts), and the staff helped me get it fixed well enough to get it in to my spot. I can see how folks could come here and never leave. - Dave from Florida

Although this is a beautiful park and the snowbirds we met here were wonderful, we will NEVER go back. We stayed 2 weeks so we met a lot of people. Right from the start, the people in the office were surly and acted as if they didn't care if we were here or not. The park is poorly lit (many, too many, lights are burned out). It is dangerous to walk after dark as much of the asphalt is broken. It was dark by the time we were done in the office. They handed us a map and told us to go find our site, no offer to show us to it. This park is laid out like a maze, so just finding it was difficult, but parking a 40 foot rig alone appeared impossible. We asked if we could just sit overnight in their large parking lot and they said, "Sure, that will cost you $10.00". Mind you, we had already paid our entire fee for the stay up front and this was additional. That was not going to happen! We went ahead and drove in and with the aid of the folks (snowbirds) already there, got parked. The shower houses and bathrooms are filthy and the paint is peeling. The pool is NOT heated and padlocked so you couldn't even go sunbathe beside it. The dumpster is usually overflowing and smells horribly. One couple whom we made friends with, had to leave while we were here to attend her father's funeral. When they got back, their rent was 2 days late. When they explained this to the manager and apologized, he said, "My wife is in the hospital, but I still have to pay my bills. That will be a $50.00 late fee, it is good business." Even my mortgage company gives me a 10 day grace period. We also found out that many people who come every year and had sent a deposit for their lot, arrived to find it occupied and had to wait while other people moved.Most told us they only come back to see each other and also hate the management. They also said that for the last couple of years, most everyone who used to work here has been fired and now most everyone is related. Hmmmmm. The service at the restaurant was ridiculously slow and the food wasn't that good and was a little pricey for what it was, although there was a lot of it. They have a petting zoo, but charge $5.00 per person to go in, therefore a family with 2 small children would have to pay $20.00 to pet a couple of goats, ponies and pigs. Come on!!! Another couple told us about the 24 cabins in the park. Apparently with tax they cost just under a $100.00 per night. They are pretty basic, with a microwave and a small fridge. They offer NO DISCOUNTS. No senior discounts, no AARP, no nothing. Apparently this couple had two elderly relatives coming down to visit a sister. He was going to rent two cabins for them for two nights, he thought it would be convenient to have them close and they could eat a couple of times at the restaurant. When he found he couldn't get any kind of a discount he took them to the Travelodge, which is only 4 miles away for $52.95 per night including a hot breakfast. I didn't blame him. Well, I have gone on long enough, just be aware that this could be a wonderful place to stay, but it is not and it is all because management apparently just doesn't give a hoot about guests. They could learn a little, something from Disney, huh? - minnsnowbird

Fair warning: if you want your RV to be infested with ants, including fire ants, this is the place. We paid up front for a week but could not stay the entire time because this place is infested with ants. The owners do not take proper care to keep this problem under control. We had to spend $50 in pesticides to get rid of the 3 species of ants that overran our RV and it took an extra couple of days AFTER we left to finish killing off the ants that invaded our home because of this park. Place looked ok on the surface when we arrived. Further looks showed that the bathrooms floors were not cleaned the entire time we were here. There is no AC in the bathrooms, which has two tiny windows that were no adequate to cool the area. There are bugs in the bathrooms. The laundry room doors are left open 24 hours a day with no AC, so it's hot, muggy and full of flying, biting bugs. Laundry room, bathrooms and the "Fellowship Hall" all part of the same building but only the "Fellowship" area had air conditioning. We were not invited to use this area at all. I was lied to by the staff. When we complained about the ant problem, I was told by a staff member that, "Everyone in the park has this problem every time it rains." When we left the park early, I was told by the owner that no-one else had this problem and the owner suggested that perhaps we brought the ants with us? (Not the case and I was offended at the suggestion and by the owner's uncaring attitude.) We were refunded the amount of time we did not stay with them (1 night). Overpriced compared to other parks in the area and our cost in pesticides to fix Merry D's ant problem made this place even more expensive. I cannot recommend this place at all. If I could give a negative star rating I would. - conniecc

This is a very old campsite with many permanent and older residents/units. There is little if any apparent control over clutter - many old units have junk under/around. Nevertheless, it is quiet (seniors sleep!) and the sites are large. If you are looking for a cheap place to hang your hat while you visit Disney then consider this place - less then 30 minutes away and no Orlando traffic. Do not expect good Wi-Fi service if you cannot see the laundry area - like many RV sites the owners advertise Wi-Fi on site but that is nonsense. A $75 router is not Wi-Fi on-site! Our cable TV did not work and the owners could have cared less. We don't watch much so that was not a problem but if you do, then take care because you too might get stung. Would we return? No - I think we would try to find an other place that is equally inexpensive - this cannot be the only one. - Aftica

Nice place for a stop over to visit Disney World. Turning left out of the park and right at the second light takes you 14 miles to the entrance of Disney World. The spaces were wide with cement patios. Parked on sandy dirt. Entrance is very narrow. Water has very high sulfur content and stunk up our water heater. Lowe's and Autozone across the street, and four blocks down to a super-market. - tsetsaf

After reading several negative reviews from others. I was hesitant to book this place. However, the close proximity to area attractions was the key. I am here to tell you that I was pleasantly surprised. The park changed management 2 years ago. They have evicted all of the trailer trash and have strict rules. Each site has gravel with cement pads. We were treated like royalty. Pool is clean at 85 degrees. We'll be back. - Raymarco1

The manager was very nice and a lots of help. I checked in at night and the night man was extra nice, and he helped me set up my trailer. I would stay there again.
The pads were on the small side, the park seemed to be well maintaned, and was very clean. - tom riner

This place is definitely more of a trailer park catering to permanent residents, with spots for campers dispersed throughout. Poor signage at the entrance indicating where to go. Park models, permanent residents, and short term sites are scattered haphazardly. Sites are not numbered well, and with park models having an actual address number (eg a house numbered "3924" next to a site numbered "24"), the whole system is incredibly disorienting. The look of the park is very run down - people leaving their belongings outside covered in tattered tarps, working on their cars, etc.
Found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. If you just need a day or two to rest, this place is sufficient. As an upshot, if you needed to perform maintenance on your RV or trailer, this is probably the place to do it and not get in trouble. - LanderWust

Not the friendliest people, and after a really long day driving had problems due to site not being level. No shade but had a patio with a picnic table. Only stayed 2 nights and would probably stay somewhere else if I am ever near Orlando again. - Regina w

Stayed here 16 days and very pleasantly surprised by this park. It was suggested we take site 6, which was a site off by itself but very large with a tree on it. Very easily handled our 37 ft toy hauler with lots of room for bike and truck. The park is primarily permanents, but they are very friendly. Limited activities but there is a take out twice a week to give you a break from cooking. Pool was stained so did not use it. Laundry was clean and efficient. There are all types of trailers here: pop ups, temps, motor homes, truck campers, and they seem to get weekend transient traffic. We did see a number of children here, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We would stay here again with no hesitation. - campergal

I like this park in a retro kind of way. It suited my purpose. Not what I'd call a "resort." However, by the time I got here I was "resorted out" and simply looking for a safe place to hook up and spend the night without being ripped off while I prepared for a 3.5k roadtrip. I'm glad I found this place. - Oregon Ms

We had a very long pull-thru site. The sites are not very wide and are close together but because of the length and with them alternating pull in direction there is nothing next to you on either side. The park is very clean and has little road noise even with its location across from Sam's club and near a busy highway. The edges of the patios next to the pad were cracked in all the sites we saw but still level and usable. The turn into the park comes quick and is narrow and sharp and the roads in the park are OK. The sites are not angled and turning into them, even with an escort, required us to drive on the lawn with our 34 foot 5th wheel. Our stay would have been perfect if it were not for loud noise coming from the cabin near us at 4:30 am on our last night. - BandPS

I guess the price reflects the tourist area. Significantly higher than Ft Wilderness in the same season. But they had availability.
Tight turn entering park. Had a couple of tight turns inside the campground. Big, open sites.
Very convenient to shopping. - MissingLinc

This park, while in an urban setting, is beautifully laid out and landscaped. We stayed on a deluxe patio site which included a gas grill, Adirondack chair style swing, and a wrought iron patio set--table and 4 chairs. All this was located on a concrete pad with a separate colored concrete patio. There is a nice dog park. Check in was quick and easy. There was an escort to our site...always appreciated. Sorry we're only staying 2 nights! - Momtotwo

I agree with previous comments. Interior roads are good but narrow. Didn't use bath house or laundry facilities.
In addition, their published and posted rate in their office is $40.00/day. We were charged $75.00/day because of activity going on at Oceola Heritage Park. When our reservations were made we weren't told of this special upcharge. Nor were we advised at check in. Only when we paid our bill the next day.
I agree that they can charge whatever they want to for a site but advise the customer when reservations are being discussed and let the customer decide if the price is in their comfort zone. - racer0624

The park itself was clean and tidy but very tightly packed fulltime, long term and campers. The pool was large and heated. The laundry room was a good size but very busy constantly. The sites are very narrow, gravel and concrete. The staff was average, not that friendly and the wifi wasn't free. The restrooms were clean and the showers were nice. The road traffic was very loud. Don't think I'd stay here again. - kiwitravelers

Spaces were a little tight but not overly. Helpful staff. Level sites but we were in the row next to the highway and it was quite noisy at times. Amenities were clean and functional. We stayed for a fortnight and will probably stay again. - Peter McK

We stayed on an "elite" site which seemed to earn its status by virtue of having a concrete pad. Very sandy off the concrete...you will track sand into your rv. Park roads excellent. Sites pretty large. Excellent cable TV. Convenient driving distance to Disney and other Orlando attractions. Wide variety of restaurants nearby. Directions on web site lacking and poor signage on W. Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy (US 192). You MUST turn south off Irlo Bronson Hwy onto Scott Boulevard and travel .2 miles to reach the actual entrance to Sherwood Forest RV resort. - Norchan

As others have commented, the sites are a bit close together. However, the park is clean and well mintained. There are a few, but only a few, junky full time residents. Most of the full time residents take pride in their piece of the property. The big advantage is that it is close to Disney and to the fun of Old Town Kissimmee. Wifi is available for free for Brighthouse customers; there is a charge for others. Or use your Verizon data card. There is good cellular service. The laundry is nice and there are plenty of recreation activities here on the grounds. We will be back the next time we are in this area. - MFTDoc

Only 15 minutes from The Mouse attractions. Strong signals for both Verizon and ATT voice and data. Some sections of this park are very clean. Most of the residents and guests are very friendly. Our site was grass. We could maneuver the trailer far enough forward that we didn't have to stare at the trailer beside us. Bathrooms and showers very clean but a bit dated. Front office personnel very friendly and helpful. Laundry is paid with special reloadable cards. If you put too much on the card, and you don't use it, you loose it. No refunds. Most areas of campground is clean and neat. However, they have allowed a couple of trailers to become a bit trashy in violation of their published rules. - moderate camper

The cost is with AAA Auto Discount. This is a nice park with lots of wildlife. Office staff is busy at times with processing the boat rides and tend to be short with customers at times. Some of the long term people at times tend to think they need to tell us short term visitors what to do, which can be irritating. The guys driving the airboats were great. I went with my 16 year old, and he enjoyed it. Nice to be away from the city hub bub. We traveled in a motor home from the Kansas City area and were here for 5 days. We would definitely return. - sergei3234

We stayed at this park for one week in lot number 37 which is a lake-front full-hookup lot. All spots had vertical cement fixtures which contained older electrical hookup panels and water spigots, with sewer hookups mounted in the ground nearby. About 2/3 of the spots were vacant and the remainder were filled with seasonal trailers that appeared to be in storage and rarely used. We only saw 3 other active campers during our stay so it was very private. The best part was the beautiful natural setting. Every spot had lots of mature shade trees with Spanish moss hanging from the branches. Wildlife was visible everywhere including cranes, herons, eagles, hawks, squirrels, turkeys, frogs, and many other critters. Several families of heron visited our site each day often walking right up to us and waiting around for a handout, and making a pleasant sound in the morning to wake us up gently. We loved being in a remote wilderness location but only 10 minutes away from main stores and 25 minutes away from major attractions. We would have given this park a 10 but there was a slight noise problem caused by the airboat tours which are launched daily from the small parking lot which doubles as a tiny lake marina. The boat tours are popular on the weekends so you hear the boats leaving every 30 minutes from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm, and then by appointment from 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm. The boats are pretty loud but further away, so they sound about the same as a lawn tractor cutting the grass next door. The noise is still audible with the windows closed and the AC on but it wasn't too bad and we got used to it after the first day. Thankfully the boat tours were less popular during the week so we did have some quiet peaceful time as well. The laundry room is older but clean and functional with each load costing $1.00 and they keep it locked when the office is closed so you have to finish laundry by 5:30 pm each day. The restroom building looked newer and well lit but we never used it. We enjoyed this park enough that we will return again some day. The boat noise is a drawback but it still beats the noise of crowded parks and lots of kids and traffic at all hours of the night which is a problem at many other parks in this area. - WileECoyote

Decent park not too far from Disney. A combo of park models and pull-through sites. Staff directed us to our site and offered to help hook up.
Sites were closely spaced, but the park was nicely landscaped, clean, and quiet.
Bathrooms were acceptable. Park is within walking distance of restaurants and shops. - Acornalley

A nice campground close to Orlando attractions. Road into the campground goes through a seedy stretch of houses and hotels but the park is nice and well kept.
Lots are very close together with gravel, dirt, sand and grass pads. There is some shade and a patio with a picnic table. - The VA Gent

This is our second stay at this park. The sites in the section we stayed at this time are tighter with not much room between sites. They do have level concrete pads. The site was plenty long for our 40ft motorhome and toad. The roads are narrow and difficult for big rigs. The park is clean but busy as you would expect in this area. We got a 1/2 price discount for being Passport America members which was great. - Fire344
