Very good, level camp sites, new limestone/shell surface. Good privacy and shade at most sites. Power was steady. Experienced no surges/loss. Dump Station on exit road. Since the hurricane, they did a great job of clean-up. The park is in good shape. Trails are good (6.7, 6, 2.8 and 1/4 mile). Biking is good. Good equestrian trails and camping. The staff are friendly and helpful. Campground bath houses are clean and maintained, as is the day park facility. Spacious day visitor area/playground. Good marina & small camp store. Saw plenty of deer and birds. This is a great day or overnight park. - GDoug

Stayed one night in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car in site 26. This park is a long way out of the way for a one night stay but I like staying at state parks. Beautiful campground in middle of a shady hammock. Looked out on open forest. Totally dark and quiet at night. Huge site. This is a place to come to and stay a while preferably with a boat! Down the road is a camp store, a boat ramp, a marina and a day use area. Only problem I had was the trails. I travel with my dog and we like hiking preferably on a loop trail. There were no short -- as in a few miles -- trails. Just mega ones. - SoloRed

We stayed 2 nights at Lake Kissimmee State Park and will definitely do it again as we live fairly close.
We found it to be quite enjoyable; it's off the beaten path, very large (the park itself) and has nice private camp sites with plenty of room. Most sites are compacted crushed shell and sand, very level with plenty of room for a screen room or tent plus chairs and whatever else you bring. They each have a fire ring and picnic table. Some sites (maybe 15 %) have concrete pads (I guess for Handicap access or large rigs). The bathroom/shower facilities are very close no matter what site you have and very clean.
We are bike riders and absolutely loved the hiking trails. There are 2 trails that are each 6+ mile loops with many connector trails. These loops are very well marked and they provide a nice accurate map. The Trails are mostly wide pine forest with few roots and some sandy places but very few places that might require you to get off your bike and walk it. We loved riding them! We saw many deer while out. Also, do check out the Cow Camp, it's a slice of FL history.
On weekends, the lake is awash with Airboats, so you can pretty much constantly hear them roaring in the background, but we found it to be pretty benign, kind of like having a railroad track nearby.
There is no wifi except at the "general store" and cell coverage is very spotty, but for a weekend getaway, that's perfect. - ToddAndMarge

My wife and I came to stay for one week but stayed for a month, plus made reservation for next year for 4 months. The rest rooms were very clean and well supplied, the laundry room was clean and prices very good. My wife used the pool daily doing aqua aerobics with a group of people which helped her exercise her knee after an operation. The indoor pool was heated to a nice temperature, clean and nice to use. Many events going on while we were staying and made to feel very welcome. The owners run and operate the campground. They were so helpful and nice to deal with. Looking forward to our visit this season. - damonred

Excellent park. Owners treat you like family. Small park which I like more personal service and you get to know everyone. Very friendly. - Caref

This is an older park that advertises a heated indoor pool, which is very musty and cold. It has a large number of permanents who think they own the park, cut through your lot like you have a sidewalk. The owners are not willing to do anything about it.
The sites are smallest I have ever seen. The roads are cramped and difficult to maneuver. I had to get my neighbor to move his truck so I could get out.
Suppose to stay 6 months left after 3. Washrooms are clean but very old and in need of work. I would not recommend this park - janel323

River Ranch is a very very nice location. We got a rental in phase 3 - the shaded/landscaped section. There is also water front/no shade phase 5. Phase 1 & 2 are older park models with the signs of the past. I got the impression some people live here year round or just come on vacations. Office staff very outgoing and helpful. Check in parking is kind of confusing as you park in the middle of the road. Its a walk back to the office. Best to call ahead. Site had a beautiful lush landscape with paving, seating and trees. Huge cable, wifi extra cost and no att cell. Pool open with repairs going on. Long horn cattle and buffalo to be seen. Some things closed except on weekend this time of year. Bring a book. - Libby

We love, love River Ranch. The sites are individually owned, and some are in the rental pool. They range from no shade all the way up to lots of shade. However, there is lush landscaping between most sites. The place is very clean and well kept. There's tons to do...pool, airboat rides, swamp buggy rides, mini golf, golf, petting farm, horseback rides, zip line, Saturday night rodeo with street dance, Friday night line dancing in the saloon...some free and some cost $. There's a little "town" with a western motiff that has a general store, post office, laundromat, etc. The prices in the general store are a little high. It also has ice cream, sandwiches, etc. There's a restaurant, and the food was excellent. Walmart is a straight drive up Hwy 60 and is 30 minutes away, so is doable if staying a longer time and need groceries. The rate reflects a weekly rate. We only live 45 minutes away and have been here many times. We'll definitely be back. - Gayle E.

This place is amazing! So much to do and the lots are the best I have ever seen! We stayed in phase 3 Lot 349 under the Oak trees, the lot is awesome! Sites are very large and private,have stuff like HD TV,lights, swings,fire pits and nice seating. Countless amenities on site including two bars , restaurant and marina I would highly recommend this place. - OEM

Park is mostly full time occupied old trailers and park models. Even though we had reservations for our 32 foot motorhome, the sites they showed us were next to the trash and would never fit our rig. In fact we couldn't even drive on the street that lead to the office. This is not an RV Park it is more a trailer park. - LMur

We were welcomed by all the people that not only worked here but other campers. Very nice and clean, love the oak trees. Nice place to stay and relax, and the fishing was great as well - tennup60

What a lovely campground. The staff was very helpful and nice. Just a beautiful setting. - smileyann45
Jan 2012 - $13.00
Rate reflects a 3 month commitment. This was our first time staying and we spent the winter (Jan-Mar). This is a 'community' park in the sense that everybody is family. Sites are spacious, activities are age appropriate, new-comers are welcome--we didn't want to leave when the time came and we've already reserved our space for Jan - Apr 2013. - Lonnie Clark

It is one of the parks with the cleanest restrooms and showers we've been in. We're full-timers for 5 years now. This is the 2nd time we've stayed here. Highly recommend it. - Marybeth5613

Good value for the money. The restroom, shower and laundry room are five star. Good location and a nice pool. Would stay here again. - DanMain

We brought our boys for their first camping trip. Brought our boat as well. Paid $10 a day to leave our boat at the dock. The park staff was very nice and the park was clean and maintained well. 30 and 50 amp available at the spot, water, add well as, septic hookup which was very convenient. They have a store that carries a little bit of everything, a bait shop, beer and burger shack, and a shack for cleaning your daily catches. Would definitely stay there again. - Mitchellfamily

We have stayed at this campsite a few times with multiple families and though it is a nice clean location I would give it a good rating.
The sites a fairly sized and it has two sections, one area is shaded and one is an open parking lot.
The staff are always friendly and accommodating but we prefer more wooded areas.
The pool is nice and clean and it's quite at night minus the airboats that go down river.
They hold fishing tournaments here and they are always interesting to see. - Senora Frog

10 miles in off Rt 60 on a paved road. Very nice office staff. Got a paver site with lots of shade. Cable is $5 extra so I used the sat. The pool is there as advertised and not impressive [not a bit of shade]. The grounds are huge and well taken care of. The lounge was fun. State park entrance close by. Pricy for summer rates. May stop again. - Libby

Older Park, most occupants appear to be permanent or long term clients. Conveniently located to LEGO Land and WalMart. Weather conditions forced us to depart a day early. Even though we gave them heads-up the day before, Management would not refund us the cost of the for the day. We reserved a "Deluxe pull-thru concrete" site. There was nothing deluxe about it. Doubt if we will stay here again. - Joe-n-Doe

Negatives - Mostly permanent residents, not many children, very little shade, lacking an adequate playground area, extremely quiet. Positives - Walmart within walking distance, close to LEGOLAND, clean area, friendly office staff. Overall - We went with our three kids. The staff were friendly but the park was mostly older individuals and there were almost no children. We felt out of place with our active children. If you're looking for a quiet retreat this would be it. But I wouldn't recommend if you have small kids that want to play. - Brunette8610

The managers were very friendly and helpful. Large park, with a number of permanent residents, but very well kept. We stayed here for 4 nights mid June 2016. Cost was $35.00 a night with Good Sam discount. Site was a little wider than normal, and long enough for our 37-foot RV and tow-dolly. There are at least 3 bathhouse buildings, so you are close no matter where you are in the park. The one I went into was very clean. Pool was nice and clean, and they also offer shuffleboard, bocce balls, basketball, mini-golf and a playground area, plus a fenced dog park. WiFi was good, we don't use cable or satellite so can't comment. Laundry on site but didn't use it. - BarrettsHappyTrails

Of all the questions I answered above they do offer, but it is not big rig friendly The way they advertised it sounded so great and it looks like a dump with many pernament people here. We are on a corner lot and very close to the road and people come very close to our RV and car. We had to ask one of the host to move their golfcart so we could put our slides out. I would never stay here again. - vella

We stayed here for one month in a full hook-up site. We paid $525, which included 50 amp service and 30 days worth of Wi-Fi. The site we had (R-28) was a wide, corner site having some palm trees. It took some maneuvering to get our 40+' fifth wheel in, but, we managed. This park is 90% manufactured homes and/or trailers converted into homes (i.e. carports; sheds; residential AC units; etc). Some lots are kept up better than others. The transient sites are scattered throughout the park; the bulk of them being in front near the entrance. They have two pools (one which was heated to 80+ degrees). The laundry facilities were dated; but, adequate. The interior roads are level and paved (everyone uses golf carts to get around). We encountered many friendly people (most of whom were over 60). Would stay here again. - Shin

Hammondell is mainly for permanent and snowbirds with about 40 spots for short term stays. We stayed for a month so the daily rate was very low, but had an electric bill of about $40 at the end of the month. - WNC Traveler
Mar 2016 - $24.00
This is definitely a retirement park and the vast majority of the permanent units are old and in need of upkeep. There are a few overnight sites and all of these are tight, really tight for a rig over 30 feet long to get in and out of. Hook ups were typical and the price per night included cable TV. The best thing I can say about this park is that it is quiet. We paid for 10 nights and ended up staying only 5 nights. - the Fishers
Mar 2015 - $16.00
We stayed for 4 months at the monthly rate of $475 plus electric. WiFi was limited as we were in the rear of the park but not a major problem as we opted for the extended TV and WiFi thru the local provider. While the sites are somewhat narrow and some of the paved streets are not the widest this is more than offset by management and the people that reside in the park.
We have stayed in different parks and in different cities within FL and this is by far the friendliest park we have had the pleasure of staying at. The manager, is the greatest. Plenty of planned activities to keep everyone busy or lounge around the pool...your choice.
Made a lot of friends that we now stay in contact with. Can't wait to go bad next winter. - BlueBoy
