Description of RV park on website is overly-exaggerated. Park does have a security gate - being that it does have a lot of permanent residents. It has about 30 sites that are reserved for temporary visitors. You have to check in at the convenience store located on the campground. Staff is friendly. Store is somewhat rundown. Our site was grassy, and after the rains got very muddy. Cable did not work. The cap on the sewer line was covered in tree and grass debris which leads me to believe that not too many temporary visitors come this way. The comfort station located close to our site was located in a very old building and not very clean. We stayed for 3 days during the 4th of July weekend. The park does have a nice large pool and offered activities for the kids. - JoelRamirez

We have been staying at this park for years since 1974. The park does need some improvements and the management is trying to shape it up. The front gate people do a good job of security. We have not had any problems with theft of anything. Its a nice place to stay for the winter and very reasonable. - LarryD

The resort is mostly snowbirds hence our May visit. There are over 1000 sites, three club houses with pools. The transient area is located close to the main clubhouse hot tub and pool. Pool is huge! Our site was back in and grassy. No patio and very little shade if any. No free WiFi except at the office area but you can purchase reasonable daily and weekly rates for even streaming video. Bring pads for your jacks as its sandy. Great area to walk your pet or pets. Garbage has to be transported by you to very front of the property. Easy to do but you'll need a car or mobile device it's not walking distance. We mainly came in the off season to play golf and avoid the crowds. The 18 hole course is immaculate and very challenging but not too bad for the average hacker as its fairly short. Water pressure good, sewer good, I would definitely recommend a surge protection system like Progressive industries as the voltage is marginal at least in our area. - Claymb

A busy golf course in the park is part of the attraction. As a whole, the park is well run. It needs a few things attended to: such a site cleanup and general maintenance.
Overall it's a good park with lots of activities and many attractions nearby. - richemme

Older gated Florida park but kept up. Golf course meanders through. Roads are narrow but adequate. Lots of big oak trees with hanging moss in our area. Provides nice shade but need to watch branches. We had to cut down some very low branches and moss to feel comfortable. Some areas open. Workers pleasant and helpful. Wifi ...use your own. No cable but some channels on antenna. Lots of activities during season. Would stay here again. - Jmh510

Loved this RV Resort. We stumbled upon it while looking for a place to leave our RV while renting a villa at Windsor Hills Vacation rentals as we live in it full time. Some shaded sites, lots of open sites, narrow but long sites, lots of long term people, many nicely cared for pre-fab small homes, area was neat and clean, prices were reasonable, it was quiet, our site was level, our hot spot WiFi worked great, full hook-ups all worked, our first site was cement but our second was gravel. People were friendly, the staff was friendly, the facilities are clean, lots to do and many activities if you are so inclined. My only complaint was the careless golf cart driving of their guests. While in our towed, I almost got run off the road twice by elder patrons driving the wrong way, completely ignoring the large arrow directional signs and speeding by me to cut in front of me and turn. Other than that, we both enjoyed our stay. - PERRELLAS

Booked for a month-would have left sooner if they'd given refund of any kind. Overrated, no maintenance performed, no customer service-they don't want to interact with customers. Fire ants everywhere. Activities-no direction. If you're not over 70+ yrs old you don't even get to know anyone. RV guides like Trailer Life have overrated this place. Would be great for few days at Disney but not month(s). - RV Traveler 2014

My husband and I stayed at Lake Magic from December 01 to March 31 and really enjoyed the resort. Prior to our arrival at Lake Magic, we stayed at another RV resort further north and decided to drive down toward Kissimmee to see what we could find closer, as we had purchased annual Walt Disney passes We visited numerous RV campgrounds and so-called "resorts" in the area (Winter Haven, Clermont, Orlando) and were quite taken aback by them. We stumbled upon Lake Magic by accident and decided to book the rest of our stay there.
Lake Magic has large, paved sites and the hook-ups are easy to connect to and where they should be (i.e., not way in the back of the site). There is minimal shade in the resort near the sites, but we prefer that as we have a satellite dish. Cable TV is offered at the park, for an additional fee; however, we did not utilize it. I have heard though that the cable reception is wonderful at the individual sites.
There are laundry facilities onsite that are managed by an outside vendor and, although the machines are older, they work perfectly fine. Washing machine is $2 per load and the dryers are $2 per load as well. There is a laundry facility directly across the road near Publix, however, it is quite pricey.
There are two pools located on the property, one next to the clubhouse, and the other one next to the laundry facility. Both are good sized pools and have plenty of lounge seating. The resort also offers pickle ball courts, shuffleboard, and tennis courts, as well as a playground for kids and a basketball hoop. There are a LOT of activities to be had at this RV resort if one so chooses to participate, such as Bingo, Poker, various crafts, movie nights, pool parties, etc.
We will be returning in the fall. - The Diesel Gypsies

We stayed here while going to and from Disneyworld which was only 15 minutes away. The staff were very friendly especially the guard house staff. It's mainly snowbirds who arrive in October so it was very quiet when we were there. Almost 1000 sites but only 40 of them are RVs, the rest are fulltime trailers. 8 bath houses, 2 pools and a large club house where you can get good free wifi. You can't get it from your site. Mini golf and other activities for free. Everything was very clean and tidy. You can not come in after 10pm in an RV so remember that if you only have the RV to travel in and plan a late night. Happily stay here again. - kiwitravelers

This is definitely not a big rig friendly place. With over 900 sites, most of them are permanent trailer homes and the campground is designed like a gated community, with very narrow, winding streets. We were fortunate to get a site with a street perpendicular to our site so we could back in straight, but I don't see how one would get into a site otherwise as there is no room to back up from the street and there are no pull-throughs. Our site had a little bit of grass in the back, and a canal running behind it. Unfortunately, the water appeared very filthy - dark brown and sludgy looking. There was a nice picnic bench on the site, but I really wasn't motivated to sit and work out there overlooking the dirty water. I have not had a chance to check out the rec center or pools. From the outside, it looked very nice. In order to use any of the games like shuffleboard or tennis or anything requiring equipment, you have to give a refundable deposit. It would be nice if where you do this (at the guard house) wasn't located at the total other end of the park where the games are! We could walk to the center from our site, but not easily to the guard house. Would I stay there again? NO, because of the layout of the roads within the park. Too difficult for a big rig to get around in. Also not too many other RVers - 99% are homes. - cherylbrv

The water is fine, first time with MH much better this year. Stayed here last two years with friends in park model. People are friendly, no problem with sites, ref size. On site 371. Only complaint is this site is noisy with diesel pick ups going by. Picking lemons off the tree on site. Does not get better than this. Pool clean, warm, and close to all sites. - Tin man

The last two reviews summarize a lot of valid points. This park is hit or miss for transients (we visited on Coast to Coast) as far as a doable big rig site. We got pretty lucky to get a site not too bad for maneuvering. Other points not mentioned by others are the electric is strong, water pressure varies but even at low times is usable. Trees (pines and/or live oak) can drop a lot of stuff on your rig. The park is very well maintained and most permanent setups are nice. Nice pool. Good laundry. Almost daily activities if you are into that. We've stayed here before and saw good improvements since the last time. - cwier

Our primary concern is the narrow roads making it very difficult to negotiate a 40 ft motorhome. The many trees made satellite reception impossible. The sites are very narrow. We were lucky to get a site we could negotiate into. Our site was narrow dirt with two large trees and large tree roots to stumble over. We had no picnic table but if we did there would have been no room for it. We would not return even though it is at no charge under C2C Premier. - RalphA

A crowded mix of old and new 'park models' and transient RVers. Small tight sites for big rigs. Restrooms/showers not the cleanest, but o.k.. Constant 'road noise' from Rt 27 on one side and Fla Turnpike on the other. Park staff friendly and helpful folks who reside in park. "Bee Hive" meals reasonable and good !! - Our Mini

Not really sure what to say about this park other than it looked real tired! It was one of those places that back in its day, it was a really nice park. Case in point, some sites had concrete pads, but ours was busted up concrete covered in gravel. The store looks like it probably was nice at one time, but it was stocked with minimal items and we couldn't find the help in there when we went. Bathrooms were dated, but were clean. The resort was landscaped nicely. Our patio table wobbled pretty bad and we decided it was not safe to sit on. For what the website looked like and what the park looked like, it was a tale of two cities. - Prairie Bayou

We have just purchased our motor home which came with a one-year membership and this was our first opportunity to utilize it. One of the first lessons we've learned about Thousand Trails is that they DO NOT assign spots. It's first come, first serve. While there are many spacious sites in the park, we were not fortunate to get any of those spaces. Unfortunately our spot put us nose-to-nose with neighbors and pull-outs were inches away from each other. We learned later in the week that you can relocate once during your stay when a "better" spot becomes available. Ahh, next time...There were no picnic tables in this area. The narrow interior streets were two-way and little room for two vehicles to pass. All of the residents around us were friendly and helpful. The laundry and shower facilities were clean and modern. - McRV

Second time at this park. Has a few upgrades but still could use more level sites. Had to take an unleveled site the 1st night and could not use slides. Moved to a nice level pull through full hookup 50 amp site the next morning. Arrive early if you are coming. While there are 900 sites, they stay full all the time. Nice people and facilities. Lots to do and entertainment. - teepee51

This park is primarily filled with snow birds who either own or rent park models, some of which are well worn. Folks there were friendly and there were plenty of planned activities, but definitely an older crowd. It was a safe environment and the few spaces that were rented out for rv's were grass/sand with a small but adequate slab and a picnic table. We were placed into slot 39 and all was well until we got ready to leave. After receiving some heavy rain during our stay, when we tried to leave the truck tires sank quickly into the sand. One of the neighbors came to help and stated that site 39 is particularly notorious for getting people stuck. No problem, the office send a front end loader and chained to our truck to pull us out. All in all not a bad experience and we could and would stay there again. The place just needs a little TLC to make it a great place to stay. - the Fishers

We stayed here one month, thus the rate is a monthly rate and included utilities. We were pleasantly surprised at how well kept this park was. It is mostly permanent residents with very old trailers, but there are a few RV sites. There were lots of activities and the residents were very friendly. Many permanent sites are for sale as they have just been purchased by a company who is almost doubling their rent. We also found out the site we were in will only be available on a weekly basis next year and the prices were double what we paid. We were visiting friends in the Kissimmee area and this was a perfect location that was away from Orlando/Kissimmee traffic. There is still a lot of traffic and there also is an Amtrak train that runs through in the night. All utilities worked really well including the WIFI. Roads are narrow and take a lot of maneuvering to get into. Ours just happened to be a straight pull in site as you come in the park so wonderful location. - jacknpeg

Great experience. Easy to find. Didn't pre-book. Lovely friendly helpful staff. Gave us the Summer rate, 24hr free Wi Fi, bit slow but adequate. Very quiet. Almost empty in June as Snow Birds have gone home. We stayed 2 nights and would stay here again. Sites are long and level. - Kings USA Travels

Booked a last minute site with some friends for the Independence Day weekend, and to our surprise, there were sites available. The gentlemen who helped us on the phone was very courteous and did his best to locate us as close as possible to our friends. When we arrived check-in was quick and smooth, however when we arrived at our site it was flooded from the previous evening's showers. We went back to the front office and they gave us several other sites to choose from, then remembering that we were traveling with another group, they told us that they did have a site available right next to the rest of our party, and they put us there! I honestly couldn't ask for better service from a campground staff! The campground itself is clean, fairly well maintained, and the campers in it are generally courteous towards each other. One member in our party did have issues with the 30 amp breaker tripping, but as I have noticed with other campgrounds, this is a common problem. They went and purchased a 50 amp adapter and all was well after that. Pool can get overcrowded, but that is expected during a holiday weekend in the middle of a very hot Florida summer. I will gladly camp here again! - Clgordon

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

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

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 is our second visit to Disney in 3 years. This is Disney and everything was in tip top shape. Clean bathrooms, well stocked and maintained laundry area, well stocked and maintained outposts. Our site was surrounded by tall pines, which afforded NO mid-day shade. All utilites worked fine and were well located. Site was long, wide, level and paved. Staff is VERY friendly and go out their way to help. - ANDYO1

Stayed for 4 nights (Mon-Thurs)not our first time. Sites are paved, large, shaded. If you book online, there is nowhere to enter rig size but you can enter this in the note section. We have a big rig, so when we arrived we asked the attendant if the site was easy to get into and she said "no, it says difficult back-in" so we asked for an easy back-in site and she was accommodating. The park had many empty sites when we arrived and during our stay. All sites are back-in, some are difficult if your rig is big. The sites and facilities are clean with bike trails, laundry, pool, dog park, plenty of garbage containers. We had good wifi and tv reception. You do not need to bring a vehicle if you stay on Disney property as the transportation is excellent. Golf cart rental is also available. In fact if you get tired of going to the parks, you can find plenty to do at the campground with horseback riding, campfire programs, Segway tours, swimming, boating, etc. Love staying here! - mohocamper

I am combining 2 visits to the campground separated by the 4 day Disney cruise.
We stayed in Ft Wilderness for 5 days before going on the Disney cruise. The park is typically what you would expect from Disney. They try to do a good job but I think that they are getting to big to provide the premium service you would expect to get for the money paid and associate with the Disney name.
We stayed here to prep for a follow up visit with our kids after the cruise. We booked 3 sites a year in advance to ensure that we would have 3 sites together. We were very disappointed with the answers we were getting about site assignment since the campground told us they do not assign a site until the day of arrival and we were worried that we would end up in 3 different loops plus we were renting 2 campers from an outside company and they needed the site numbers to deliver our kids campers. We had to fight tooth and nail to get the 3 sites together and the numbers of those sites. We ended up getting them late and the campers were not set up until around 3 pm.
Other than this problem everything in the campground was great and convienent to the other Disney parks. - John Borajkiewicz
