12 RV Parks near Okeechobee, Florida
Feb 2018 - $17.00
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

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

Park starting to clear out this time of year. But still charging in SEASON prices. Nice sized site and all grounds well kept. Staff all very pleasant. Drive to the casino and no shuttle. Pool looked fine, but the weather was cool and did not use it. Clear view for satellite. If you need it, its best to bring it with you. Some food available at the store or its off to the casino. Would stay again but not at in season prices. - Libby

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

A wonderful small campground in the middle of a huge preserve. Good separation between sites. For more seclusion stay in the Equestrian loop. You do not need to have a horse to stay in this loop and it was deserted while the Family loop was about 70% full. Very quiet area, lots of wildlife. A real gem, I will definitely return. Note: the campground is about 5 miles into the park down a rough gravel road; just take it slow to minimize the bumps. - kentr

We really enjoyed our stay here in mid-February 2018 - once we got to the campground. The major drawback that we found with the park is the road back to the campground, which has washboarded pretty badly. We drove it at 5MPH and did a lot of weaving. Our campsite was level and tree-shaded, with plenty of room to put out the slide and awning. The comfort station was very nice and clean, with a separate accessible shower/toilet room on each side. A single washer and dryer are available, with a bonus donated library. The major attraction for us was that the park is recognized as Florida's first Dark Sky Park by the International Dark Sky Association - so of course it was cloudy the whole time. AT&T reception was good, with 2-3 bars. Overall, we loved the place and definitely will return. - Indybear

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

The site was nice, on the water across from the golf course. Shaded but still had satellite access. Concrete pad that was sloped quite a bit, had difficult time getting level, without front wheels being off the ground. This is a very nice, family friendly campground. Good paved interior roads but a bit narrow. Site was long enough for coach and toad. Wifi extremely slow. Used my phone as a hotspot instead. Small concrete patio with picnic table. No issues with electric, water or sewer. When park is full, some rigs had problems parking with other cars parked across the road in their own lot, making maneuvering difficult. A bit on the pricey side, but expect that from KOA's. They have a small putt-putt course and pool was nice. - Vicki K

Not a good time of year to visit. In season price of $90. a nite is Way over the top. Park was about half full and appeared to be emptying out. Weather was cool so did not use the pool-- but it looked fine. Wifi was useless. The Shanty was a reasonable oasis. Good ice cream at the general store. You share the electric box and there is only one 50 amp receptacle. Used my satellite, so don't know about the cable. W Palm Beach should be pretty easy to get on the antenna. - Libby

Stay away! And expect to pay 100% of your balance upon arrival. In our case, it was over $6,000 5 months). The location is good! In 5 months, we NEVER had wi-fi! They should not be allowed to advertise certain admintities, if they don't work or they are closed. You MUST pay 100% of your balance at check in. In our case, it was over $6,000. Beware!! - Yetisride

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

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

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
