37 Parks near Lake Wales, Florida
Mar 2016 - $21.00
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

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

Great place! We visit Camp Mack several times a year. It is both a Summer and Winter campground. We camp with 3-5 families each time. Staff is very accommodating and nice. Highly recommend! - elbar21

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 stayed 2 nights. This park is very isolated and has a nice boat ramp and hiking trails. We hiked one trail that was a little over 2 miles long and climbed up the observation tower for a wonderful view of the lake and park! You can fish in the boat ramp area and around the day use pavilions. You should have a Florida fresh water fishing licence. They have canoes and boats for rent. Make sure you bring everything with you and gas up before you get to the park. We had wild turkeys and 2 deer visit us right behind our trailer both mornings. The sites are all under big oak trees with lots of shade. The loops are not too tight. There were some big rigs parked there. I had no trouble backing our 25 ft travel trailer in. We could not put our awning out which was fine, we didn't need it as the weather was perfect! The air boats are loud but background noise for a few minutes does not bother us. - RV Dreamer

I can't say enough good things about this park. Each campsite was private, spacious, and beautiful. The showers and bath houses were clean and in beautiful shape. The rangers were nice and helpful. Next time I will plan to stay longer. - BobW

Very pretty campground surrounded by cows and oranges. It's off the beaten path so make sure to bring what you need. Sites are level and covered with shells and dense vegetation. Restrooms are huge, modern and clean. Saw a single washer/dryer outside the restroom. No Verizon 4G but you can access Internet near the camp store. - LeeBob

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

This an older park that is well maintained. Site were a bit close, we were unable to put our awning out, but we were in the overnight sites and the other sites look larger. Be careful some of the turns are tight put if you watch what you're doing not a problem. Power was good, water was 42psi, Wi-Fi was good. No cable but we got 88 air channels. The real positive thing is the owner goes out of his way to give you a warm friendly welcome. I marked this campground up one just because of him. - Traveler II

Very clean and quiet. People are friendly. Lots of planned activities, shuffleboard, pickle ball, pool, horseshoes. Hookups are in a good location. Don't let the number of park models dissuade you. Roads are all paved as are most of the sites. Some of the are not double concrete and the unit is parked on the grass with a nice concrete patio/driveway. The sites are some of the most spacious we've seen. Will return in a heartbeat. - User3025

This is such a nice park, every one made us feel right at home, both residence and staff. Convenient to town, very quiet, paved streets, concrete pads. There is a pool, a lake with a gazebo, and many activities. Many ride bikes and walk their dogs. We will certainly go back. - esta34950

Rate reflects a one-month stay. We stayed in the Regal Pointe section which is the more recent development. Lovely resort, with paved roads and large sites, executive golf course, nice pool and clubhouse, and very well maintained. Our site backed onto the ninth green. Very nice, but for some reason however, the RV pads were built with a significant slope, and getting level meant having my front wheels off the ground. Many permanent residents, but very most people were friendly and welcoming. Organized activities galore with breakfasts, cards, Wii, Wii, crafts, dances, etc. WiFi was good, but only available in the clubhouse. Located close to I-4 and Hwy 27, and traffic is horrendous. Getting in and out of the resort was a challenge. Overall, a great place to stay. - Voyageurs

We stayed for 1 week visiting friends. We did not get a confirmation and had to rely on our friends to keep us informed. We were bounced around 3 times before we arrived. We were told that they only guarantee that an acceptable site will be provided, not a particular site. The site we were given was not acceptable, in that 2 days after we arrived, the electric company knocked on our door and stated that the electricity was going to be shut off because of non-payment. When we explained that we were renting from the owners for a week, they said we had 1 hour to settle the issue. We called park management and we assume that they were able to contact the owners since we did not have the power shut off. But...what if they couldn't contact the owners...or worse, what if we hadn't been home and had returned at night to find the power off and couldn't resolve the issue until the next day? In fairness, the site owners bought out the owner of the park last month and things have been in upheaval since...but I think that the park should not rent out owners' sites without knowing if all of their utilities are paid...especially at the outrageous prices that are being charged. We paid $403 for one week (including tax) and this did not include cable. We will not return to this park and will instead stay at the KOA down the road. - rena

We spent one week here. This is really not an "overnight" park and you could have a wonderful stay..but.. There are two worlds here. (1)This is an older RV park that they are selling lots off in for park models or owner sights $29,000 each. There were only 7 rental sights available and they were all located between park models and to small for our 45' bus. (2) There is a A class motor home only section that lot owners rent lots from when they are absent. These lots are wonderful, double wide, 90 ft. well landscaped and many on the water (sell for $69,000). We paid $150. for 1 week electricity included. Park is as advertised, golf course and all. If you call ask for the head park ranger who works from 6AM until 2PM she knows which owner lots are available for rent. Otherwise you will have the sales office who will try to sell you a lot. - fulltimer 2

This is a very large, clean park. Our site was easily accessed but our view was the 2 dumpsters across the street, and the nearby hotels and their bright night lights. We were only here for 2 days so those things were not a big concern for us. The laundry facility that I used was in the middle of the park and was very small and unkempt. I had to clean the lint traps prior to using the dryers. Even after pre-treatment of a few fresh food stains, the stains remained after the wash. The cost of using them is about average for an rv park. The staff in the office was friendly and accommodating but the staff out on the grounds in their golf carts, never acknowledged anyone, not even a smile. Access to the interstate is great, especially if you are going to Disney. Pets are welcome on leashes and they have a small dog park. They even provide dog bags and small trash containers for the doggie-do. Overall, we would stay again when traveling this way. - Lovingretirement16

Park was very well kept and staff was very accomodating. All of the facilities were clean, and if you have a dog, convenient drop sites with bags. Our site was on a extreme slope, so it took several blocks to get us level. Most of the monthly sites have some degree of slope. If you are here weekly, the sites are more level. Great location for easy on/off rt. 4. Disney only 20min. away. - ceil

This park's location is great for visiting the Orlando and Tampa area attractions, and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. It is a very large campground with a lot of sites, but unless you stay in the back of the property, you would never know it as it is quiet even though it is near the interstate. There are a lot of palm trees so our site had considerable shade, but it did make it a little tight in some spots for getting our 35-ft RV in and out of the site. The price was right for the location, and we will stay here again the next time we visit the area. - goobs

We were backed up against a fence that was covering up a dried up pond and one space away was a sewage processing area that made noise on and off all night while doing it's thing...a few days it created a nasty smell....our concrete pad was very old, covered in black spots from age, and shorter (our RV is 40ft) making the front end of the RV stick out in the grass area...we tracked in lots of sand even with rugs down. The site did have a new small picnic table on it. The overall of the campground is good though. The roads are paved, it was very pet friendly and the folks that reside there and visit there are wonderful....the office staff were also superb. There are a lot of activities going on through the week and some are posted on a sign as you enter the park. The location of the park is good and away from the road. We would go back.... - Lovingretirement16

Older park but a lot of upgrades and improvements going on. Lots of nature, birds, gators and turtles. Our site was large and had a nice view of a pond. 40' RV fit fine. Office was very pleasant. - Racer1

We have camped here several times and have always enjoyed the friendly campers and nice heated pool. We thought that the rest of the park would improve with the new ownership, but it has not happened. Still old park models, little grass, dead plants, buildings in marginal repair. Ponds have dried up, concrete cracked and crumbling on roads. Picnic table was unusable. Things seemed to be happening at the rec. hall, but we were never given a calendar of events, nor was one evident anywhere. Prices have increased, with no extra services. Office staff not very friendly. Probably will not be returning. - Vernadene
