BOGO offer for Florida residents!

We found it odd that only one section of the campground is open...but it's the waterfront area, so we were OK with that! The staff at the office was a little rude, but otherwise it was an enjoyable stay.

I will warn to watch out for sand-spurs. But other than that, the landscape is great. We utilized the bathrooms, showers, and laundry and they were all great. We did notice SEVERAL feral cats that live along the airport property line. They could cause worry for some folks.

If you can, you should make the trip to Blowing Rock Preserve! It's only about 45 minutes away and WELL worth the trip!

Wi-Fi and TV signals were great here, as was the local access to shopping, restaurants etc! We hope to come back with friends for a group camping weekend! We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Our 2nd time here, and it remains one of the best values in campgrounds. Rate reflects weekly stay. Wi-Fi weak, all else great. Stayed lakeside with full hookups. Saw lots of wildlife, including lizards, birds, and an alligator cruising by about 25' off the shore. Highly recommend this park. Convenient to everything, and centrally located in Palm Beach County. If you bring a fire pit, it must be at least six inches off the ground. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

When I arrived, I didn't have a reservation. The office worker gave me a great site, and even told me to call the office if I didn't like the site I was on so I wouldn't have to drive back up there. Nice looking campground. Close to lots of things in West Palm and beaches. I'll be back! We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent, very clean county park close to shopping/restaurants and easy access off I-95. Site was a full HU, level, asphalt site on the lake. There's plenty of room to bike and walk. The entry is gated with an entry code. There's a dog walk, playgrounds, pavillion, boat launch, and picnic areas.

If we had not had reservations elsewhere, we would've stayed longer. We will definitely go back. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This has to be the best value in the state of Florida, perhaps in the U.S.A. Spotless campground set on a beautiful lake. Close to everything with the ocean only a few miles to the east. We arrived were checked into our spot in a couple of minutes. Office staff is friendly and very helpful. The office stays open until 9 every night. Our spot, #68, was right on the lake. We had a few ducks come to visit every day looking for food. Park rules forbid feeding any wildlife so the ducks left disappointed. All the hookups worked. Many snowbirds here because of the very low monthly rate, about $750 including electricity. The laundry room has eight washers and eight dryers. The machines work on tokens purchased at the office. Ten tokens cost $10. A load of wash is $2 and $1 for a long (an hour?) dryer. Everything was spotless. This was our second time here and we will come back again. Easy in and out. There is every type of restaurant or shopping one would need here. Our favorite park. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Hesitated staying here in the past after reading a couple of mostly negative reviews but our recent 2 week stay was all positive. All utilities worked as expected and the WiFi signal was generally good. Our site was level, shaded, and roomy. Staff was helpful and pleasant with them pointing out good areas to see a couple of Great Horned Owls living in the campground. Although the nearby small plane airport seemed busy we seldom noticed associated noise during the day with activity ceasing at sundown. The park outside the campground is pleasant with a fitness path, walking/biking trails, and athletic fields. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Excellent location. The park is large and effectively isolated from the surrounding neighborhoods. Great for walking, biking, etc. plus water boating activities, though we are not quite sure what "use common sense when dealing with alligators" means. Slight premium for water front lots on the large lake. Lots are paved, though not necessarily level. A few pull-throughs, but mostly back-in. It is adjacent to a private airport, which other reviewers found noisy, but we cannot say we particularly noticed. Helpful staff. Several kids' play areas, but no pool or water activities. We look forward to staying here again. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here in the past and enjoyed our visits. It is owned by the county and very well run. It is a little tight with a big rig motorhome on some of the narrow roads in the campground. We were only here for two weeks so are in the short term sites by the lake. The sites are close to each other and there is not much landscaping. There is a nice canine fitness area in the campground. There is also plenty of room for walking/biking in the campground and the adjacent county park. It is convenient to shopping and restaurants. We will definitely return when in the area again.

The shower stalls at the bathhouse are outdoors, with an accordion grate that anyone could stoop down and look up at you. They weren't very clean either. However, the water pressure and temp was amazing, so I still liked to use them. I got a "waterfront" site in the 14-day restricted section, no sewer, in Executive Circle. We couldn't see any water from where we were, we were too far back. I will have to make my reservation much earlier to get one of the nicer waterfront sites. I think the long-term campsites are bunched too close together. But there are so many snowbirders staying together, I guess it doesn't bother them. Some of the site looked very unlevel, and it was scary to see what set-ups the snowbirders had devised. I think the park is a bit expensive for the lack of service and cleanliness it offers. However, the area itself is a nice place, very convenient to shopping, food, and the beaches. There is an airport next-door, but I rarely noticed the plane noise. We do intend to return here next winter, but will be sure to reserve a nicer waterfront site sooner. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Chinese take-out restaurant nearby was quite good.

This was the first park we ever stayed at, and it has gotten better and better over the years. Although some sites are small, others are quite roomy. The lakefront sites, available for a maximum of two weeks, have a beautiful view. There is a small airport next door, but it's a minor nuisance. The park offers trails for walking and bike riding, golf, boating and birding. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Surprise! A government run park that looks private. This beautiful place is hidden in the middle of a city, but next to a lake. Paved, wide roads and large level sites. The power posts are well maintained and utilities worked well. Lots of dog walking areas at edges and at back of park. Slow Internet during the day (not enough bandwidth), but good antenna TV. It is next to a civil aviation airport, but the plane noise was occasional and not obtrusive. Although it lacked resort amenities, its well maintained facilities and location made it a good base for sightseeing in the Palm Beach area. We would stay again.

This is a large, urban, well run campground, just full of snowbirds, the large majority from Quebec. Consequently, there are many signs in French and English. Since the park allows folks to stay in many sites for 5 months in any year, it's not a surprise to see people here for the winter. The roads and each site are paved and most looked level. Most sites are somewhat close to adjacent sites, but not objectionably so. Some pull-throughs, some back-ins. The park is neat and clean. Security is strong, with incoming and outgoing gates down much of the time. The park has nice recreational activities, including a paved multi-use path and a wood bark walking path with fitness stations. Lake Osborne is available for boating and fishing. We especially enjoyed the paved path on our bikes, since going out and back was 13 miles without having to ride on the sidewalk next to a very noisy, busy road. Many path users were from the local community and everyone was friendly. The only drawback to staying in this area (and not the fault of the park) is the sheer amount of traffic madness and red lights that abound. For those into equestrian events, the park is about 15 miles from Wellington. Costco is a couple of miles away, Walmart a little further. Great over-the-air TV reception. The county airport is next to the park and fun for armchair pilots to watch the activity. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay again. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

The park was excellent in every aspect. It was very clean, prime location to city, beach etc. The bike and hiking trails were paved and the park was gated and had roving security. Lake sights are very nice and are available for up to 15 days and the other sights are up to 5 months. Sights are paved. Fishing and boating are available, but due to alligators there is no swimming. We saw one gator while we were there. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground, most sites are very large and level. Dog walk was fun. Very well maintained. Some of the side loops are a little narrow but there are plenty of loops with room. We will definitely return. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Large campground with picturesque two week limit sites along Lake Osborne. Seasonal sites are grouped together in several loops. Large park with fishing, boating, and miles of paved hiking/bicycle trails. Convenient stores and bus stop are walkable, downtown Lake Worth, grocery stores, churches, dollar store, Harbor Freight, Costco, drugstores, fast food, and Tri-Rail station are bikeable. Security gate active 24 hours and security attendant at night. Well patrolled by rangers and security personnel. Large French-Canadian sunbird contingent with activities scheduled, friendly campers. Shower rooms can run out of hot water in the afternoon. Laundry facilities require tokens which must be purchased in $10. increments - $2/wash, $1/dry. Honey wagon service can be reasonably purchased M-W-F for water and electric only sites. Dump site also available at rear of campground. Allegro Drive is main drive in and out, sites close to the entrance on that drive get a lot of traffic, sometimes fast. Families with children may wish to stay further away from the entrance. Park personnel are helpful. Free WiFi is available and very good. Campground is located next to a county general aviation airport which gets much helicopter and small plane traffic, especially on the weekends when it appears that lessons and maneuvers are practiced all day. Several bus routes run outside the park. Playgrounds but no pool. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.
