Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort is about 5-miles east of I-75 north of Ocala in Orange, so you have no Interstate traffic noise. We overnighted here and had a long pull-through site. The resort roads are paved asphalt, but very narrow. The sites are paved with concrete pads and asphalt drives to the pad. Previous reviewers mentioned low hanging tree branches, but we didn't have any problems. However, we did have a problem with the 50-amp power. One leg only had 108-volts and our portable energy management box prevented low-voltage damage to our RV. It was going to take time to fix the problem so the office moved us to another site. Picnic tables need updating. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice RV resort. Paved pull-through sites with nice length. Not much space between pull-through sites. Good hookups placed well for convenient hookup. Washing of RVs and vehicles is permitted, which is a plus for cleaning off the winter grit from drive south. Nice on-site eatery with nightly specials. Nice long driveway entrance. Park is well maintained. Only downside is distance to any real grocery store (approx. 17 miles). Pet friendly. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

This park was huge and in a very secluded area. The closest grocery store was 14 miles away. It felt safe and there were a lot of activities going on, but seemed mostly geared toward the full time residents than the transient travelers. We stayed for 3 days. People on their personal golf carts were buzzing around and maybe half of them were actually playing golf at the onsite 9-hole course. The landscaping seemed very overgrown. We actually had to move sites as the trees were scraping our 40ft RV. I saw many people maintaining their own sites, so not sure how this works with the spots that are not owned. Never saw any onsite maintenance going on. WiFi was an additional fee which we didn't do. By some miracle, we were able to get satellite as there were many large trees throughout the park. Weight/exercise room was very nice and plenty of machines in the laundry ($2 load for both wash/dry - seemed a bit high). Some of the interior roads were a bit tight and again overgrown trees scraping the V. We would probably look for another park if we ever came to this area again.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Trees need trimming very badly, as many branches hit our air conditioners while traveling on their roads. Pool is nice and it is a great spot for rallies with a very nice facility for events. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

The park staff is very rude and not at all cooperative. Don't ask questions and don't complain. This just makes it worse. The amenities are ok. The 3 mile hiking trail is a joke and non-existent. The rate initially quoted for a week as a new person was much less when I called than when we showed up. Not very professional. I will not stay at this park again.

This park has a beautiful, long, paved entrance with nice landscaping. We had a very nice paved pull-through that was very level. The park has several nice amenities from fitness room to clubhouses to on-site restaurant. Excellent Wi-Fi but poor cable TV. A potential negative is the relatively long distances to get to good shopping. However, the people at this park are first rate. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Paid group rate for a FHU, somewhat level, grass site. Site was very large and mostly level, but the sites do have uneven spots. But we had no problem leveling. Very nice Rally facilities. It is a common area so you get folks walking in on your group. Cable lineup is 11 channels. WiFi is $5 a day, $10 for 3 days, $15 per week, etc. We did not use it as our Verizon broadband was very good. The big downside here is the full time people in the park models that line this part of the park. To them, the grass sites is the dog walk and they walk (and drive golf carts) right thru occupied sites. Food was fair at best at the on site Eagles Nest. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

The site are extremely large and long. If you like golfing then this is a great RV location for you. I don't golf but still enjoyed the beautiful weather. A few activities provided by the park, it needs to develop more. If you like restaurants the one on site is more than adequate but most others are 20 miles away in Ocala or Gainesville. I don't like their mail service - they collect it and put in open pigeon holes, often in the WRONG box. So I switched to GD at the local P.O.

We have been seasonal campers at Grand Lake Golf and RV Resort for 12 years. This resort is coming back to once again be a prime destination. The new owners are demonstrating commitment to bringing the park back to life. The previous owner let the park slide by lack of maintenance. There is now an extensive paving program going on. The decking on the clubhouse and store has been replaced. New shuffleboard courts have been added. There are new bocce ball courts. The tennis courts are being refinished. Attractive new fencing encloses the pump house, dumpster sites, and the sewage disposal plant. New pool tables have been purchased. Management is building a new kitchen for the restaurant which is due to open in November. Proper sand has been added to the bunkers on the golf course. The greens are being reseeded by professional caretakers. The swimming pool has a complete new tiled surround with all new furniture. We had been ready to seek another destination before the new owners took over. Impressed by the new owners commitment, we are ready for another 12 years here. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Big park 3 miles off I-75. They advertise Passport America, BUT, will not honor rates, however off season rate is reasonable. Long pull-through, but narrow, and very little room between sites, very little shade. Lots of permanent RV's and park models. The park needs some TLC and to either drop PA or honor rates. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed 3 nights on our way back from Florida. A sink hole opened up and swallowed the "Grand Lake" a few years ago, so don't expect to see any water. Nice 9 hole course next door, I don't golf. Most sites were paved and level. Ours was on the end of a row and very quiet. We saw some eagles and lots of nesting cranes. Not much else to do here, but very peaceful.

Arrived after the registration office closed. Campground was very empty. Selected a grass site anticipating Passport America discount. Next morning went to office. Office people very friendly, but did not honor the PA discount. Park was quiet and easy to get in and out of. Paved interior roads with many paved sites as well many grass sites in an open field with no shade. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

We were traveling to South Florida and picked this campground as a overnight stay. It is about 3 miles east of Interstate 75 on Highway 318. The campground entrance is well marked. I mention this because my map programs did not locate it correctly. I would recommend this location for anyone wanting an quiet friendly location to spend some time. The pull through site that I had was about 100 feet long. We will certainly use this location for future travels. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here many times in the last 10 years and we feel that the park is showing its age. The trees need to be trimmed along the entrance road. The lots are not groomed and weeded very well. The cement pads are cracked. There are a lot of full timers here. The park is large so you really don't notice that. The Wi-Fi is not very good. It times out and won't let you back on even though you haven't used up your 2 hours of free time which it allots you each day. For this nightly rate, we've stayed in a lot of other parks that have free Wi-Fi for as long as you want to use it. The cell phone service is also questionable. Our Tracfones could pick up a signal, but the signal wasn't strong enough to complete a call. We've also had that problem with Nextel and Altel, when we used those providers and stayed at this park. Also, the park corporate office has issued a memorandum for this summer that they were not going to accept any membership discounts. That meant that our Camp Club USA which we've used here before was no good and neither was the Good Sam discount which almost all parks give. We are rethinking whether or not we'll stop again. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Passport America not accepted anymore. Very,very limited cable choices. WiFi was non existant for me and the old dialup location did not work either. Pool was great. Very pricey for Florida in July. We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
