As stated in the pre ious reviews, the lots must be rented from the owners, not the office. We stayed for 2 months this winter. We found the park to be very quiet, and full of very friendly residences. There are a lot of activities that go on. You are close to town for shopping. The street we were on was a bit narrow and it took a bit of wiggling to get in and out, but not impossible. We enjoyed our stay and will return next year. - esta34950

Currently spending the winter season of 2014-2015 here. Park is mostly permanent sites. Office does not rent sites. Sites must be rented direct from a owner. Office will provide list of site renters. Very neat and all sites paved. Many activities. - User3629

This is not a campground or an RV park. It is a 55+ retirement community that consists of about 700 individually owned sites. Most of these sites contain modular homes, park models, or RVs that are permanently parked with attached screened rooms or other additions. I estimate that less than 100 sites are vacant and only 45 of these are listed as available for rent. Each available site is rented by its owner and the price is negotiated through them. All sites have electric meters and electricity may be paid by either the landlord or the renter. I paid $500 a month and electricity was included. Information about the available sites on the park’s website (http://aoaks.net/id17.html) contains the site number, owner’s name, phone number, and maybe an email address. No other information is given. This makes shopping around for the best price difficult as each owner must be contacted about the price and whether electricity is included. The park is well-maintained with nicely manicured lawns. The streets are paved with concrete or asphalt and in good condition. Each empty site has cable TV and a large concrete pad which is angled for easier access, although some of the streets are one-way single lane and a carport across the street can make it difficult to maneuver a large RV into a site. The park is gated which provides some security, and access through the gate is provided via a magnetic card that is issued at the office after a $25 refundable deposit. There is nice pool and a large clubhouse that hosts various activities. Wi-Fi is available at the clubhouse. Verizon cell phone service is very poor – the signal fades in and out. I am able to use an external antenna with my air card so I had a decent Internet connection. There are about 5 bath houses throughout the park and each one contains a small laundry (2 washers, 2 dryers) and there are two larger laundries at the clubhouse and the office building. Children are allowed but this is a retirement community - average age is in the 70s - and there isn't much for children to do. - Comdac

Lovely park. Recently renovated top to bottom. Has fuel, 'trading post' and Subway on site. Other than the campground amenities (pool, shuffleboard, day spa) the only entertainment around is the casino, 3 miles north. Okeechobee is +\- 30 miles. - Jules Simon

This is a relatively new park run by the Seminole Indian Tribe. Park seems to be almost brand new. Each concrete pad had full service 30/50 amp, water, with good pressure, and sewer. WIFI only at the club house and no cable. Over the air channels were good, we did get about 20.
Located about three miles from the Seminole Tribe Casino. Nearest town was Okeechobee, Florida about 30 miles. - Dixster

This park should be closed by the health department. Permanent campers drain waste water right on the ground. The laundry backs up the water pipes and over flows if too many people try to wash clothes. The old fashioned septic tank is not able to handle all the waste water that this park makes. Waste water goes on the ground and overflows. This place is just nasty. At least you can just walk across the street to get booze and gas. - campground survey

This was our first visit to the park. My first thought after we left the black top roads to travel on the dirt road into the park was that we made a terrible mistake. The road surface was washboard, we had to slow to 5 MPH so as not to destroy the motor home. Any faster was unbearable. However once in the park, our outlook changed for the better. The park is wonderful, quiet and relaxing. There are lots of hiking trails and plenty of nature to view. It is wide open country. The prairie has plenty of wet lands, even in the dry winter months. I would suspect the summer months would be untenable with thunder storms and rain. Our site was grass in open sun, but most sites are tree covered. The sites in our loop had just 20 and 30 amp service. The bath house and showers were new and clean. Dump station was near by. While we were there the staff scraped the road to remove the wash board. We departed three days later and the washboard was returning. We slowed to 5 MPH and was now used to the speed. The distance at this speed was about two miles. We enjoyed our time here and will definitely return. - Nautilus

You really need to enjoy nature at Kissimmee Prairie Preserve, because that's all there is to do here. Extremely quiet, peaceful, and isolated. We saw deer, gators, feral pigs, a thousand different bird species, and more. Heard coyotes at night - uncomfortably closely while stargazing away from camp in the early morning! Took the buggy tour, with an excellent tour guide, not to be missed if you're here that time of year... and I would recommend considering carefully when you do come. The prairie is to a great extent seasonal wetlands, and in the summer/fall many trails would be underwater; I imagine the bugs would be quite something then too. The stargazing can be hit-and-miss, as we found; the full moon is beautiful but it blots out the sky pretty thoroughly. You don't just walk in and see the Milky Way anytime, despite the dark sky designation. Beyond the nature spotting & stargazing, activities- even in the vicinity outside the park - are sparse. We had fun with the family, but at times couldn't shake the feeling that we were disturbing everyone else from their tranquility with our noisy three kids. All in all, it's a beautiful place, as are most Florida state parks, but it'll probably be a little while down the road until we return. - Spiffe

Level, wide, sand/shell sites. Friendly, informative staff. Clean facilities and park. Quiet, quiet park, with miles of hiking/biking trails. Trails are mostly in the open prairie (wet and dry prairies) and a couple in a hammock. Good wildlife viewing: deer, caracara and turkies in campground. Birds, gators, wild pigs along trails and in sloughs. If you like night skies with no light polution this is the place to be. Florida's first Dark Sky park. There are 3 camping areas: family (standard site setup), equestrian (corral), astronomy (no trees). Excellent park, well maintained. We've been here several times in various months. Like late October, early November best. - GDoug

Always enjoy a stop here. In town and close to everything. But far enough out to not be congested. Easy in and out off the highway. The site had been repaved, but the power stand appeared not new. Power worked fine but only 1 50amp and 1 30 amp. Cool weather and power stable at 115volts. Large library. Wifi is useless so went across the street to Mcdonalds and got it done--very fast. - Libby

As others have noted, this park is large and in need of renovation. They are doing some work on it. Parking is tight, sites are close but not as bad as most KOAs. Electricity is the biggest problem. The park was close to full capacity while we were there and the power fluctuated often. Our emergency gen-start kicked on repeatedly on one hot day, and we had several "brown outs." Getting 50-amp service depends on getting to your utility post first, as there is one 50 and one 30 per post. The staff are great, they work to keep the place clean, but I think they have trouble keeping up with such a large park. My dog kept finding chicken bones everywhere. There is an unfenced grassy run for dogs at the front of the park and the usual small K-9 area with agility equipment. We were parked mid way back, so it wasn't a problem to walk there, but people further back would have a long walk to get there. Out site was great, we had two shade trees which made it very pleasant. - pbrodie

This is a huge park with many permanent residents, a golf course, rental equipment such as bikes and golf carts. It is pretty old park and has not been updated or highly maintained. Our oncrete pad was broken up and not quite level. Ok for a 5th wheel, but tough on class A motor homes. Some coaches have to back up onto the grass to get level. Not all sites have 50 amp and it is very hot in south Florida. Electric service is low voltage and trips the pedestal circuit breaker sometimes. Be careful, if you go off and leave your pet inside the coach. Most sites point north and south so try to get one that points north so your patio will be in the shade in the afternoon. - pcmike

They gave us the Passport America rate. Not fancy but the people are friendly. Over-55 park with a nice clean laundry room. Not many amenities but very peaceful. We have been there twice and will go back again. - esta34950

This is an ownership type resort, but with rental sites available. Mostly fifth wheels and class A motorhomes. Some sites are fully improved by their owners, others just a small paved patio area and otherwise unimproved ... our rental was fully paved and faced the shuffleboard area. Has to be one of the cleanest/well maintained park we have visited. Lots of dog waste receptacles around the grounds and everyone uses them. Outside the park there is not a lot to do and dining options are pretty limited, but we used Okeechobee as a home base to explore both west and east coasts with our towed vehicle. Port Saint Lucie, and even WPB, are only about an hour drive away ... we even ventured there for foodie dinners a few times. - NCrog

This is a great owner's resort but they let people come in for a preview stay. They have every amenity you could think of plus dinner dances every Saturday night and live bands by the saltwater pool twice a week. Five days a week they have a bar and grill at the pool with great and reasonably-priced food. They have pickle ball champions that live here and give lessons. They have a library, a gym, a card/activity/craft room, a billiards room, an activities director, petanque, volleyball, basketball, shuffleboard, horse shoes, a hot tub, fire pits, beautiful landscaping, and a great community! - Yggm

Resort is beautiful but management leaves much to be desired. When you leave the resort it's still Okeechobee. A long drive to anywhere decent for shopping or restaurants etc. $1200 per month is a bit pricey and not worth the money. No patio or table. If you are looking to buy in this resort buyer BEWARE! - Robbi

A family owned park on the north side of town; most parks in Okeechobee are on the crowded south side. But still we were only about 5 miles from all stores and grocery. We just stayed for 3 days, park was empty this time of year. Large site with 50 amp electric; ours had a pad, but most do not. No showers or restrooms either. Access to Taylor creek with a fish cleaning station. Owner says it fills up in the winter, but price is same year round 20 per night in January for full hook up. I will be coming back - travlnman

If coming from the north be very aware of their sign. I missed it and drove 5 miles before a turn around. Very well kept location. Office staff very nice and helpful. Passport only accepted for 3 days or would have stayed longer.
$66.00 a night in Okeechobee in the summer is really over the top. Large site with pavers and fishing in the rim ditch. WPB on the antenna and clear for a satellite. Large open area for the dog. Mostly quite even with the highway so close. An enjoyable location. - Libby

We were at this very quaint campground for several days. We understood that a bank has taken over this campground and is not putting any money into it so it could change relatively quickly. It was not in bad shape while we were there. The river at the back of the campground has a beautiful tiki hut large enough for the whole campground.
We really didn't see the staff other than check in even though she lives on site.
There is no cable here and the local channels hardly work at all so you will need satellite. We had ATT service which didn't work except in some very specific spots in the campground.
The WiFi also was spotty.
Not much in the area unless you fish.
Probably wouldn't stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

Because this is our 1st year snow birding, our early and prior reserving where we originally wanted to be was unsuccessful. So for the month of February, we started calling around the state desperately seeking a place to stay so we wouldn't have to go back to the awful cold and snow.
We happened on this rv park via the 2016 RV Travel & Savings Guide. I called and was greeted by a very friendly manager that was accommodating. The park is security gated and we were given a remote to get back in when we left the community. The park itself is small but beautiful. Our site was quite roomy with beautiful pavers and palm trees and shrubs between us and our neighbors. Pets are welcome and need to be on leashes. The sounds of traffic on the highway right next to the park are loud but only certain times of the day. Every day there was a social hour right before sunset in the large and beautiful Chickee hut...everyone was welcome. While we were there we celebrated Super Bowl Sunday in the Clubhouse/office with the others at the park. We also had a campfire wiener roast that everyone attended. They were both enjoyable with food pitch-ins by the residents and the managers provided the meats. Our rent did not include electricity but the average daily rate even with the additional electric was only $27.50. The water was a light rusty color but didn't seem to have an odor. We drank and used bottled water. There is no laundry facility and the closest and best one was about 6 miles away. Grocery stores are 10-12 miles away. The pool is clean and beautiful but not heated. However, we did sun ourselves there. The clubhouse is roomy and very nicely decorated. We were given a pass code to get in to use it if we wanted. We had no service with our telephones 99% of the time with AT&T and Wifi was sparse. The overall experience was enjoyable. If you love fishing this is the park to be in. It sits on the canal surrounding Lake Okeechobee and has a boat launch for the residents. - Lovingretirement16

Convenient money saving location 4 miles from Publix Grocery. Friendly staff and friendly neighbors. Older park with mostly seasonals, some in rough shape. Grounds and roads very clean and good condition. Wifi free weak at site, better at pool. Their friendly people and liberal POA discount available even now during peak season are 2 big pluses. - Todd Fogelberg

We stayed for three months - our fifth year here for the winter season. Yes it is an old facility with narrow paved roads and some sites very close but others quite spacious. Disconnect toad at office and just follow guide to your site. Most of the best and quietest sites are north of the office. Major waterfront renovation currently in progress with new docks along the 1/2 mile park waterfront. New owners commitment to upgrading facilities very evident. Wifi typically slow during peak times (early AM and PM) but works quite well at other times. Power and water good with a couple failures lasting just a few minutes. Ants - but just tell office and maintenance usually responds same day. Winter monthly rates $695 inside and $795 waterfront INCLUDE electric. 10% discount for AAA, CAA, AARP, Good Sam and veterans. Plus Passport America! Really good price for something this far south in Florida. Car and RV washing permitted. Walmart, Home Depot, Tractor Supply and Harbor Freight just minutes away. Great cycling and hiking on the LOST - Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail. - ctpres

We booked for 1 month in a 50amp full hook-up. We have a new fifth wheel and the pedestal was much older and unable to support our RV. Our surge protector kept kicking off power because it got below 104 which is very dangerous for your appliances. We were forced to leave after 2 weeks and manager handled the whole situation very poorly. Overall, bad customer service and very old electrical system. Go to KOA. - averyhp
