Everything SeaLandSky said was pretty spot on, except if your staying at the west end of the park where the airport is located. There is now a helicopter training school located on the airport grounds. Monday through Fridays the helicopters are doing maneuvers and hovering which at times can be extremely loud and annoying (no it's not because I'm getting older). So just be aware if your looking for some quiet you'll be disappointed. Come on the weekend or stay on the east side of the park it might be quieter there. Other than that it's a great park as others have alluded to. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed four nights in a lakeside site on the east side of the park. It was one of the nicest sites we've ever had. Lots of room with wildlife just a few feet away. The interior sites are much more crowded. Did not see any pull-thrus. Naturally some sites were easier to back into than others. There's enough room to back over the grass to get into a site rather than trying to make a 90 degree turn. There was occasional noise from the airport but not bad. On only one morning there was a lot of noise from I-95 which disappeared after rush hour. Verizon phone and hotspot worked well as did OTA TV. Would love to return but only to a lakeside site, not in one of the crowded interior sites. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice county park. The spaces are paved and level. They are spaced nicely and most have picnic tables, ours did not. All the spots seem to be back in, some for short rigs, some for longer ones. The gal in the office was really nice about finding one to suit us the best. The park is very quiet and large enough to walk around for exercise. Several people were riding bikes. There is a lake for fishing. There are a lot of other activities also. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Everything was perfect about my one night stay at John Prince Park.

The office staff was efficient and friendly. It was the first time in 9+ years however that anyone asked for my actual vehicle registration slip and photocopied it with my drivers license. Apparently they had a problem in past and started doing this.

I did not explore the park since I was visiting family in the area but it looks very nice and very centrally located. Nice quiet night, perfect.

The showers are a little unusual, located near but outside the toilets and washroom. Showers are labelled Women and men and are lockable from inside. No trash containers in either showers or washroom. Showers do not have shelf for soap, etc but do have bench seats and hooks. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice campground located within a large urban park surrounding a couple of small lakes. Given it's urban location the noise level was pretty low - just a low hum from I-95 and the general aviation traffic from the adjacent airport. The campground itself was very quiet even on the weekends. Winding relatively narrow asphalt access roads (probably a lane and a half in most cases). Sites are concrete pads surrounded by grass and a good number of trees (but by no means "wooded"). Short term sites (not more than 14 days) along the water are relatively spacious with generally good views. Long term sites are away from the water and look to be very close quarters. Big rig access to a given site is entirely dependent upon your neighbors (may necessitate moving of a vehicle or two). Access roads are generally too narrow for a big rig and a car to pass. Some of the turns at the intersections can be tight and sight limited. Some of the sites need to have trees trimmed higher. Power ok (although we did have an intermittent ground problem), water ok (50psi), sewer ok. Wifi pretty much unusable - sluggish at best and very annoying with frequent logins required. Verizon and TMobile LTE good signal strength and speed. Satellite access is site dependent, but most sites appeared to be open enough. Full, two stream (paper and cardboard in one bin; everything else in the other bin) recycling on site. Lots of road bike riding opportunities in the surrounding park. We will stay here again at least in a short term site, but we're not sure about a stay in the long term sites. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very large, gated county campground. The park is clean, but some long term coaches are in bad shape. The roads are narrow but passable. The hookups were good and we got 50+ channels using the antenna. The campground is full of geese and ducks so watch where you are stepping. The lake front sites are few so make your reservations early. We've stayed here before and will stay here again when we are in the area. I gave them an extra point because they recycle. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

stayed in one of the lakeside sites, which have a 2 week occupancy limit. Campground had plenty of sites available, which is typical for this time of year. Winter months will have the campground full, so if you want to camp there in Dec-Mar, you better plan on trying to make a reservation. Had a great time kayaking, and had plenty of "campground visitors"...iguanas, ducks, raccoons, egrets. This is a great county-run campground, and one that we will visit again. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to enter campground from Congress Avenue. There is an entrance to the park on Lake Worth Road, but if you take this entrance, you will encounter a "Low Clearance" overpass with only 11 ft clearance. There is no prior warning until you get to the overpass.

Stayed here 3 nights and got a site that backs right up to the water. The site map they have online is a bit misleading as to size and amount of space between campsites. We stayed in #53 and it was very nice. It is a quiet area too. All the sites are asphalt and ours was perfectly level and fairly wide. I noticed there were other sites that were even wider. All have a large picnic table. We had full hook-ups; some sites don't have sewer so be sure to review their site map or ask when calling for a reservation. We were well spaced apart from other campers. There's trees and vegetation all around as well as tame ducks and squirrels that have obviously been fed and are not afraid. Also saw bunnies, ducklings and even an alligator in the lake early in the morning. I would give it a higher rating but was dissappointed in the restrooms and landscaping. The restrooms were minimal at best. No A/C, ceiling fans, or even exhaust fans so it was very hot and stuffy in there. I didn't even want to try a hot shower. The toilets were clean enough but the sinks had not been cleaned the entire time we were there. Also, many of the sites had grass around them that needed to be mowed. They did have security that drove around occasionally which was good. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Bring your bikes! There's lots of biking trails all around this large county-owned park. Also, try to get up to the Palm Beach area to a wonderful state park called John D. MacArthur Beach. It's about a 30 min drive north and totally worth it. Plan to stay the day. There's a boardwalk to the beach which is like having your own private area. There's kayaking, a nature center, gift shop, etc. Not to be missed!

Loved this park and location. Not on the water but very close. Great location to visit the area and take day trips. Full hookups and well laid out campground. Long bike path that connects to the park was very nice and went around Lake Worth. Loved this place and would be glad to come back for another visit.

Stayed 12 nights in waterfront site (limited to 14 days). Much of RV park is closed for summer renovations. Sites are large, lots of green grass. Location is wonderful for visits to surrounding areas of Lake Worth, West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Site 266 is part of a temporarily shut section that will remain closed until November 2016 for repair/upgrades to the Park's electrical system but fortunately for us was re-opened for the Memorial Day crowd. Although this Park is a favourite of ours, we won't want this site next time due to light pole cables on one side and service post on other side being so close that parking had to be absolutely centered in order to open slides with only a few inches clearance. Will return to Park. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park in Lake Worth. Most of the sites are full service except for having cable. The roads are narrow but did not hinder backing onto a site. Lots a nice areas to walk or bike within the park. This park is well maintained and the staff were very friendly. We would stay here again. Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface was pavers and features a picnic table. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We called and got a waterfront site for the next day at this spacious, county-run campground. Near the freeway, this campground is convenient to the entire Palm Beach area - we were visiting relatives in Boca Raton and visiting FAU, both less than 30 minutes away. Our site was waterfront and full service. The utilities were convenient and easy to reach. The campsites were clean. The road was wide enough for our rig, and the campground was quiet while we were there. The lake was lovely to camp by, with a nice breeze. We were directed to John Prince by another campground that only takes dogs less than 20 pounds (we couldn't get our Lab on a diet fast enough). We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a good, though not great park, but considering the fact that it's a park owned by a county and run by the government agency responsible for the facility, its certainly a good place to stay. We have been concerned that the security during the day seemingly doesn't exist, as traffic just comes and goes at will, but after 9:30PM there is a guard at the gate, and ID is required, so at least they are addressing the problem. In addition, we saw no reason to feel insecure at any time in the park. All of our hookups work fine, and although our site was not level, we were able to level our 40' motorhome, and had Wi-Fi most of the time, along with good access for our roof-mounted satellite dish in site 097 along the Lake. We have now stayed here twice, and would do so again. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Great place to stay while in the Palm Beach area. Well secured park with a airport on one side, lake on the other. Just small planes, nothing too loud at all and helicopters. Very clean and well cared for. Sites are not very large. If possible, try to get a site on the lake. Really nice although hard to book as they are desirable. My friend who has lived in the area for 26 years, did not know the campground existed. She knew the park was there but not the camping portion. Which says a lot about it being very private and secure. Lots of shopping nearby for supplies and such. Lot spacing is nearby with sunny/open exposure. Site Surface is asphalt and features a picnic table. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

If you like seafood, be sure to visit "Captain Frank's Seafood Market" on Boynton Beach Blvd and I-95, one block east on Boynton on the north side of the street. Freshest seafood in the area!!!
