19 Parks near Margate, Florida
Jul 2016 - $100.00
Stayed here for two months earlier in 2016. The park has excellent services; very clean; very nice lots with all hookups. The park has the best security I have seen at any resort. Lots of activities for all, and close to the beaches and shopping. We plan to stay here again next year. - Smitty H2016

Beautiful, well landscaped and spacious sites. Our site had a large Tiki hut and was brick paved. Full hook ups but no cable. Antenna reception was excellent with over 40 channels. The park caters to Canadians and everything was bilingual. Majority seemed to be from Quebec and spoke French. Two pools available, adult only and family. The entrance is gated and has security guard. - NanciRV

WOW, is what we both said upon driving into the resort. The entrance, avenues and landscaping are all gorgeous. It is a gated comunity with a guard posted and key card required to access. All making us feel very secure. The lots are all large with pavers for coach parking and the patio.
Our issue is with the fellow "campers". This is a "lot for sale" resort. Most buyers have improved their lots with Cabanas, outdoor kitchens and shelter for their Ferraris, Bentleys and Very High dollar Coaches. The property has been developed and marketed by a firm in Quebec, Canada. As such, 85% of the residents speak French. One of the key desires my wife and I have in RVing is to meet people and make new friends. Neither happened here. Folks were hesitant to speak or even make eye contact. All the events and the activity are announced in French. We felt totally excluded. Too bad. Beautiful park, but we will not be back... - McRV

Management was very helpful and friendly. Our site was level w/shade and room to park our 2 trucks. I did not use the restroom/showers but the laundry was always clean and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again. - dakotabean

We pulled in and pulled right back out. Trailers were very close together, the lot and camp sites were unlevel, nothing was like their web sight suggested. Very unsafe feel to the place. We would rather stay in a Walmart mart parking lot than to spend a night in this camp ground. Best advise we can share is not to go there. - k64 -_k

Drove in to have a look. We were interested in staying for a few months. We drive in, towards the back, and then straight back out. First, it's already packed like a sardine can and it's only Sept. Second, it's in a bad part of town. Third, it's outright scary in there. I'd rather stay in a Walmart parking lot. We never even bothered to talk to anyone at the from office, we just left. - Camp time

We came here to visit a relative in the hospital. Only campground with a vacancy.
The sites barely allow for the extension of slideouts. Little if any green space. Gated access due to neighborhood concerns.
We had to walk our dogs outside the park because seasonal campers were less than receptive. Difficult to communicate with others unless you speak French.
So little space that we were guided into our site head on and had to run our utilities under our RV. Fortunately we had an extra hose extension for the sewer. - DJanis

We stayed in the summer and the park was pretty empty with the exception of three RV, all other were permanent residents. We stayed for seven days. We were told to take two of the side by side pull through sites which gave us plenty of room. When the park is full in the winter these sites are on top of each other. The park is pretty run down and little maintenance was preformed during our stay. There is no nightly security and the only emergency number is to an onsite maintenance person. A very noisy party at the pool ran until 2:00 am in the morning one night. Lots of bugs and rodents were seen around the park. - Nevadadon

I camped in the winter when southern parks are full. They assigned two rigs per pad. Each faced the opposite way and you have to run your hook-ups under the rig. Being sandwiched in like that I had to have a person on each corner to help me get in and out of a pull through! When our slides were open you could not walk squarely in between the two. I had to do major tree trimming. The limbs that rested on top of my trailer (literally) were infested with ants that moved right on into my home. No one at the park assisted me in any way, other than to run my credit card. I'll have to say that the campers were beyond friendly and helpful though! As a last resort I'd stay here only in the summer if I got my own pad. - WanderingSolo

The entire staff was very helpful, friendly, and nice. But the park itself has much to be desired. It is in a bad neighborhood, and it sits next to a very busy street. We heard sirens constantly; as well as cars honking, tires screeching, boom boxes shaking the walls of our camper, and just overall loud noises and ruckus. The campground is old, and is in need of updating and overall repair. There was no security gate, and a sign posted in the office told the patrons to lock up their bicycles, as many bicycles had recently been stolen. We definitely did not feel safe staying here. It is sad that I have to write such a poor review about the park, because as I stated previously, the staff was very nice. - Mable Irene

This is the worst park I have ever stayed in. The section we were in was next to Walgreen's and the highway. The neighbors in the next site (horrible broken down camper) partied until 2 AM. The street noise was horrible. We complained and ask to be moved but management refused. They would not refund our money either. There were ants everywhere and got into our camper. The sites were very small and very difficult to get in and out of. The park is in a very bad neighborhood. No cable TV and Wi-Fi did not work. Info on their web site is very misleading. - PeachEtta

Very small sites, very noisy, dangerous with bike. If you what more than a pool, you have to take your car for everything, but it's in the city of Fort Lauderdale, good for visiting. - Bacaisse

I spent my first few weeks of motorhome ownership here, and it was excellent for my needs, being located close to the city. It's a well-kept park with helpful staff. The roads are tight, but I was able to navigate them in a 33 ft Class A on my first day driving it.
The higher-numbered spaces are closer to the railroad tracks, and mine was perhaps the closest of all. I generally enjoy being around the trains, but some would blast the horn right nearby. I slept with the window open one night and was awakened by the first commuter train in grand fashion.
The office received packages and called me when they arrived.
WiFi was a little spotty when I arrived, but as the park emptied through April, it became very good.
The discount for tri-county residents is being discontinued, so the new price ($40) is rather high for a public park. But it's an urban location in Florida. After May 1st, I believe the rate is lower. The winter dates fill up early.
It appears that a card access system is being installed, but I didn't ask. No charge for day visitors except on weekend daytimes, and then only $1.50. - bobk3d

Pros: Beautiful park, nice level and landscaped. Great location, near many beaches
Cons: Some sites hard to maneuver into. Narrow tree lined streets, arrive in daytime. Adjacent to very noisy I-95. Frequent loud trains can at times create a rumble to be felt
A great base camp park for motor homes, fifth wheels and travel trailers with some sound proofing. Not so great for sitting around outside although I will say I got used to the trains during my 2 week stay. I slept fine, trains were much less frequent at night. I would go back. - Bill & Karen Smith
Jan 2016 - $35.00
Yes, as others have noted, the noise of the trains and I-95 is a bit of an annoyance if you are outside. We didn't really notice the noise that much inside our motorhome. The narrow roads were more of a problem. I was scraping bushes going to my site and leaving. Unlike what others said, there was wifi at our site that was actually pretty good. Overall, this was a pleasant place to stay. The grounds were well maintained and very attractive. I would stay here again. - MFTDoc
Jun 2014 - $50.00
This is one of the worst parks we have visited and the most expensive. The sites are cramped, unlevel, full of weeds and ants. When we put out our slide out we almost hit the trailer next to us. The front office person did not seem happy about answering any questions we had. There is also a train nearby which makes sleeping difficult. Overall it was an unpleasant experience and I would strongly advise people to look elsewhere to stay. - fontina

Despite the bad reviews, we needed a place to hook-up and stay nearby, while visiting family for the holiday. This is definitely not a place for kids. Don't even bother to come with kids, because you will get the stare down look from the nearby neighbors. The other reviews are true, but if you are just looking to hook-up and not planning to stick around the park that much, it's probably fine. Apparently, the summer is pretty dead here, but we are here just before the holiday and there are a ton of snow birds from Canada; mostly over 55 community. We arrived after 8PM on a Sunday and made it to our campsite OK. A lot of permanent or long term residents. When my kids jumped out the RV to greet their grandfather, that met us at the park, the neighbors came outside a little disgruntle at the noise (which wasn't that loud), but since they obviously are not use to kids here, we seemed to be disrupting their quiet kid less park. Since we are not Canadian and in our 30's, we definitely seem to be the topic of conversation in the park. It's actually pretty funny that as plain as we are, that we can be that much entertainment. We dropped the kids off with their grandparents and my husband & I are enjoying a little senior RV living and quiet time in the hot South Florida sun. - CasillasCampers

This is a very poorly maintained campground; many sites are in very bad repair and lots of extended stay. The folks here are not very friendly or helpful. I feel it is way overrated, and wanted others to be aware. - jfitterman
Jul 2016 - $4.00
This park was a mobile home park, converted to RVs. The water and electric hook-ups are on the wrong side of every site. The sewer connection is in the middle of the site, under the RV! You have to crawl under the rig to connect. The roads are narrow, making it difficult to maneuver a big rig. We had to drive through two other sites to get out of our spot. Luckily the park was almost empty, so it wasn't a problem.
We booked 10 days through Coast to Coast, but only stayed one night. There is no security, the gates open for anyone who pulls up. The park is in a rough part of town, and we didn't feel comfortable staying there. - The Sauntering Sampsons

This is a bare bones park for sure. But, the grounds and campsite were clean and didn't look bad. And we felt very safe in the neighborhood. Funny thing was I still have absolutely no idea where the office is. We never saw anyone walking around. We didn't need the restrooms but the folks next to us said they were recently remodeled and were very nice. We stayed one night and are not looking for area activities or night life. Since we couldn't find an office we just found a site with a 50 amp plug. We would stay here again. - User529
Feb 2012 - $57.00
RUDEST staff, very disorganized, and even though it's in a good location for shopping, etc., there's not much for the kids to do, and there is no gate upon entrance. I would not recommend this park for families. Also, I found the managers were arrogant and unorganized. - SparkyTonk
Nov 2015 - $65.00
We were schedule to stay there for 3 days. The space we were put in was a paved parking lot with sewer, water and electric. (6 places in a row with lines. We were put in between two other large RV's. The space was so tight that we could not put out our sides without hitting the other RV's. We called the office to see if we could get another site but the office was closed. We called the maintenance phone number and had the man come over to see the issue. After moving back and forth for almost an hour we finally got it to fit with the sides out. You could walk down our stairs and walk directly up our neighbors stairs. No cable was available, so we left the next morning. Fortunately our next location could take us earlier then planned so we went on. The electric, water and sewer hookups were placed well, but after looking at other sites, they would not have worked well either so we went on. Staff was great and understanding. They did have a good laundry room, pool area and everything looked clean. I wish the site we had was set up better, but other sites I saw looked tight also. They have one slab near the front and another slab in the back on the opposite side. I guess smaller RV's would be OK. Sorry but I would not stay there again, but others may find it acceptable. - al alvarez

We came during peak season so the place was packed. This campground really milks every square inch of space. Standard sites are barely wide enough to open the slides. We took a tape measure and the space between our neighbor's door and our slide was 4 inches!!! (I am not exaggerating - I'm happy to provide a photo). I don't know the history but I suspect this place was founded by Canadians, as there is a huge French Canadian population (snowbirds) here that they cater to. Even the live music they had playing by the pool was mostly in French, as were almost all of the notices on the bulletin board, and very few people here speak English. There isn't anything pretty to look at either. It is like one enormous parking lot. Even if it wasn't filled to the brim, there wouldn't be much to see. This place is way too overpriced for the lack of space and landscaping. - cherylbrv

This park has the Worst sewer hookups I've ever seen - they are under the RV clear in the middle. It also has the worst stickers in the grass of anywhere we've been. The park would have gotten a rating of 1 if it weren't that the office staff were so helpful at check-in time. We will not revisit this Park - Kent Savage

If you enjoy sitting at the departure end of a major airport and hearing screaming jets fly over every few minutes, then this place is for you! In addition, we were given site S4, which is one of the sites right up against busy Burris Road. Let me out of here! Thankfully, it was only a 3-night stay, and I have no idea how the hundreds of Canadian folks can live here for weeks or months. The woman who "greeted" us at the front gate was not at all friendly, and I'm sure she won't mind that we'll never be back. Sites for RV's were very tight, although the concrete pad was nice and level. Water pressure was extremely high - don't forget your regulator. 50-amp power was adequate. Verizon reception was great, and a strong picnic table was available at most sites. Bathrooms were very nice, and clean, but the showers did not provide shelves or benches for items I would want to take with me. The laundry machines required that you purchase a $5.00 card and charge it at their machine - no thanks, I'll wait for the next stop! There was a nice walking/biking path along nearby Orange Drive that we enjoyed. Good grocery stores and other services were fairly close by. I'm sorry, but I fail to find anything about this park that warrants $65 per day. Oh, here comes another jet - gotta go! - LowesTravels

Sites are small, close together. Most are permanent or semi-permanent. The location is convenient to the highways, in an industrial area. It is also directly under the landing path for Ft. Lauderdale airport, so there is a continuous stream of jets overhead. At our site, the WIFI was mostly OK. Water was good. Staff was friendly. It is a very popular place for Quebecois, so many of the guests here are French speaking. Kind of a culture shock, but interesting! This is not necessarily a negative, just an observation. - gsgroff

Staff are very helpful and can provide lots of info for the area even if they don't appear to love their jobs. The website and site brochure are a bit misleading as the 8 laundry locations have been reduced to 3 and some other facilities have changed. The park is on the flight path for the airport which can be very busy. They park is generally well maintained especially in the large area occupied by the seasonal Quebec population. Most signs in the park are only in French. Wi-Fi is okay and they offer RV storage. We would stay again if in the area for a short time. - lrp374
Jan 2014 - $65.00
This is a large park, with many permanent sites. Very small sites, all paved. It is located in a highly industrialized area of Ft. Lauderdale, surrounded by scrap metal yards, lift rentals, etc. Most of the traffic on the road to the park is dump trucks and it is surrounded by highways. It is also located directly under the runway approach for landing aircraft to Ft. Lauderdale airport. On the good side, it was fairly friendly, the Wi-Fi was mostly OK, although it was intermittent at times. It is centrally located, so you can get to wherever you want to go fairly well. What I found most interesting is that English is the minority language. It is overwhelmingly French Canadian. - gsgroff
