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

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

I have been here many since the 80's. Last year I was here for 9 months while wife was in hospital. Since I checked out in Feb 2016, there has been a rate increase of $15 a night. Website stated $55 which was acceptable. However rate was $65 and take it or leave is new office rule. They run your credit card, then have you write all your CC info on a separate form. I refused at 1st and was told we couldn't rent site if we didn't. This was also done to our friends who rented cabins. Check with your bank before giving out CC info as they keep if written down. I guess TOO many people were canceling their charges. Mostly full time residents. Ever since they changed the name, they charge more for less. Some roads were closed. most bath houses were closed. Used to be East Lake fish camp. now is Boggy Creek RV Resort (Bwa Haaaaaa.) What a joke.
There is NO Cable and NO wifi, although they will give you a password that doesn't work. This is closer to a $30 a night park. They had a water inspection from the county one day and all water was turned off. No bathrooms open in park or restaurant. They padlocked the pool the 2nd day of our stay. Same water issues. We received a notice the next morning about ILLEGAL activities going on in park. We were told to call Sheriff's Dept. if we saw anything suspicious. Time to find another park. I won't pay resort price for simple fish camp amenities. I would look for a site closer to Kissimmee and take toll roads to Orlando rather than OVERpay for this place again. - phnz1

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

Nice RV park with paved roads and wide, long and level pull thru and back in sites with grass and concrete patio. A few trees but mostly open. Most sites can get satellite signals. Good Utilities, cable tv, good antenna tv, good password protected wi-fi, good cell signal. Nice pool. Roads a little tight for big rigs, but OK. Park clean and staff friendly and helpful. Will stay there again. - Pepper Dan

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 campground is very old with a lot of deferred maintenance. The front area is literally a junk yard with machinery, parts and a variety of old rusted out equipment. The north part has some wide open sites large enough for a big rig, the others are very small. Initially we had planned on staying a few weeks, but quickly changed our plans due to the conditions. Do not let their website fool you. And their rates are pretty high for a park with nothing. - The DnD Adventure

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

We generally avoid KOA's, but this one is very nice, clean, and well kept. They keep the 'rif-raf' in the back of the park behind the office. The front 2/3 or so is mostly comprised of fifth wheels and larger motor homes. I found a couple of things odd about this park: (1) the office is toward the back, so you have to drive through the park to even check in and get your site assignment; (2) the 'big rig' sites aren't very big rig friendly. The lady escorting me seemed to be in a hurry and didn't want to wait for me to check mirrors and avoid trees. I came within about 2 inches of one tree while pulling into the site. The asphalt is new, and they don't mind you putting your jacks down without pads. If we return, I'll be sure to ask for a site closer to the front so I don't have to drive all the way through the park making tight turns. Avoid sites 202-216, as they are narrow and the approach is difficult for big rigs. - dad2aprincess

Beautiful KOA with a very nice staff. Our yard was perfect. We reported some fire ants and the staff took care of it immediately! Very long pull-thru. We were able to hitch up in the space. Great place to stay for Disney if you don't want to stay on property. They offer a 20% discount for military, police, or fire. That's better than th3e 10% for the KOA card. My only complaint is that it was not gated and people sometimes walked through the park who didn't belong there. - The Griffins

I understand why this park got such high reviews. It is very clean, well-maintained and the staff is fantastic. That said, it is not at all off-the-beaten-path and you'll get the glare from the shopping centers all around you (great firepit...but it's never ever "dark"!). The internet was horrible which seemed bizarre considering the location.
The turns are very tight but the escort was great. They definitely pack a lot of people in the little park. Not much privacy but all paved and tons of grass around.
Our site was great - very large, had a patio, swing, terrific fire pit. I'd call it one of the best spots in the campground...if not for the lights of the shopping center across the pond! It was give and take I guess.
The biggest negatives were the price, how the shopping center lights shone into the park and the internet. For such a high price and such a busy area you'd think they'd invest in some decent internet. - Kamnel

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

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

Nice place close to Disney. Not a fancy place, few concrete sites,mostly grass sites. Nice pool and clubhouse !! Plenty space to ride bike or walk . - User2886

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

We stayed here for the weekend in a Motorhome along with our Daughter's family in a site next to us in their pop-up. We had one of the grassy sites near the back of the park. Some reviewers have complained about the narrow roads but we are in a 35 foot motorhome towing a jeep and the roads are fine. You do have to find your own site. We stayed after some heavy rains and were moved off our original reserved site when we arrived but the new sites were fine. They do have better premium sites that we will try next time. Park was clean. The person who helped us with our reservations was superb and even came out of the back to welcome us. The sites we had were somewhat close together which is why I rated it less. Good place to stay if you need to be close to the amusement parks. We have already made another reservation for Sept 2016. - MIke-Sunstar35F

Loved Tropical Palms. Very quiet, could hardly tell you were so close to an attraction. Pool activities, mini golf, no fishing but a beautiful peaceful covered dock. Basket ball, exercise room. We will be making this a repeat get away. - L Jacques

We stayed here twice over the last 4 weeks. Both times we had a great time. Staff was very helpful and most campers were very nice. Nice pool with a DJ on the weekends and things for the kids to do. All different types of sites, grassy, gravel, asphalt, concrete, back-in, pull-thru, etc. If you don't like a lot of folks and are use to peace and quiet, only stay here during the week. You are close to Disney so it can get pretty hectic. - jimnina
