38 Parks near Lake Wales, Florida
Feb 2017 - $25.00
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

Owners very hospitable. Got a pull-through up front and it was barely long enough to fit our rig. It was OK as I did not need to unhook. The laundry was very nice and inexpensive. They even had an outside clothes line for drying. The indoor pool was dark and damp. Not what I expect in sunny Florida, so we did not use it. I never did see anyone use it. Nice library. - Libby

We've been staying here for a little while now and it is really a nice place to stay. The owners are wonderful and really cater to the RV'ers needs. Power supplied is good, Water pressure is ok and hook ups seem to all be conveniently located. Oak trees throughout the campgrounds, which are great. Overall, I'm pleased with our stay here and plan to continue to stay. This is a nice, quiet campground! - Jesse & Patricia

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

We stayed 3 nights at this wonderfully isolated park. You will need to bring everything with you as not much is available close by. There are many hiking trails. We hiked a couple trails along with some exploring other areas. The observation tower has a great view of the lake. Fishing is allowed on the porch of the General Store. There are canoe and kayak rentals available. Check out the old Cow Camp on Saturday. We had a bobcat with 2 kittens and deer visit our campsite in the evening. Our site was under a couple big oak trees with lots of shade. We had no trouble backing our 22 ft trailer. The was some noise from air boats in the background. - Big Gator

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

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
Sep 2010 - $29.00
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
Jun 2015 - $40.00
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
Jun 2016 - $35.00
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

Manager gave us a shady spot which helped keep our RV cooler during a very hot August in Florida. A Walmart Supercenter right behind (in walking distance) came in handy to finish off stocking up our trailer before a 2 week trip. We liked this campground a lot. Would definitely stay again if in the area. - sandybeachcomber

We stayed for two weeks while visiting friends in the area. Sites were level and gravel. All services worked well and cable TV and wifi was included. While the pool was not large and there was only one activity building the residents were friendly and helpful even though we were only there for a short stay. We had no problem getting a site in late November/December they were heavily booked for the first three months in 2015. We celebrated Thanksgiving while there, the park provided turkey and ham while the attendees supplied the sides. It was an excellent meal and a very enjoyable thanksgiving. - Billb1

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
Mar 2016 - $42.00
Very nice place with very large sites. Lots of friendly seasonal people that lease their lots and really keep them nice with grass and plantings etc. The RV area was very quiet. Lots of place for the dogs to run in 3 fenced areas.
Mix of 5th wheels and MH's in the RV area. Park models and mfg. houses in the other. Good WIFI.
The campground owned sites and areas could use a few $ spent to spruce it up a little but otherwise no complaints. - az99
Feb 2016 - $30.00
Not overly friendly, a lot of regulars here year after year. The sites are set up for lease. Most all the sites are on lease. There are some monthly and because of 2 year lease you don't find you are invited. They do have activities that are nice. The big problem is that you are 15 to 20 miles to the nearest food store. Walmart is 16 miles away. If you have pets they have a nice dog area, but you can only do it there. No street walking. WiFi is free, but very weak. Could not even check emails at times. One other thing, if you get a site have it sprayed for Fire Ants. It costs 30.00 dollars. Worth every penny, good for 3 months. - Puppy2901
Dec 2014 - $27.00
The $27 nightly is because of a months stay. Very nice park, lots of activities, and everything very well taken care of. One of the better fitness centers I've used. Everyone very friendly. My only negative is that it should have WiFi (I used my Verizon) & cable TV included in rent instead of having to contact an outside provider. Although a small thing, it would also be nice to have a concrete parking pad. There are so many park choices in FL, that we would probably try another before returning. - Mariner
