Used this park as a base camp to visit Universal Studios. As per previous reviews, roads are narrow and a bit twisty. We saw many BIG motorhomes and 5th wheels in camp and they appeared to get into their sites without any trouble. Sites at the lower end of the campground, away from the showers & restrooms are as noted, not level. Saw a few Motorhomes with their front wheels up off the pavement.
While the showers and restrooms are satisfactory, the daily cleaning could be a bit better. The shower curtains while we were there were in dire need of replacement.
Great signage to get to the park. - thetravelkids
This city park is extremely convenient to the city and tourist attractions. $19 rate is for water/electric only. The sites are open and not private, though pretty well shaded. They have a lot of rules to follow here, though the campground itself seems to be an oversight of the park and not so well maintained. Many of the concrete pads are very unlevel and not quite long enough. We saw a lot of people had to park their trucks and toads in the grass next to the pads. The one-way road through the campground is narrow, windy, and the edges at the corners are falling apart and desperately need to be repaved. There is no sidewalk to lead you into the bath house, which is annoying after a shower when you have to walk through the soft dirt with wet sandals back to your site. The bath house seems to be maintained, but at a minimal level - I see a lot of hair or dirt on the walls, floor, and ceilings even right after they serviced it. It reeks of chlorine like you're walking into a pool. There are no fire rings as campfires of any sort are not allowed here. Those are the cons. Good things are the amenities this park has to offer such as fishing, Frisbee golf, etc. They give you a gate code for the evening so the park is secured. There were 4 washers and 4 dryers in the laundry house, and a change machine to help stock up on quarters which is nice. Washes cost $1.25 and drying is $1.00. No Wi-Fi, but I got excellent Verizon cell signal and LTE data. - Sara C.
Full hookup sites and beautiful park right in the city of Orlando. It's only about 5 miles away from Universal Parks with tons of shopping centers nearby. The park is quiet with a pool (closed when we were there), fishing pier, picnic areas, Frisbee golf, and nature trails. It is very dog friendly. All picnic areas are off-limits for pets but there are so many other areas that it isn't an issue. The sites are very shady with a fair bit of space between neighbors. The length of the sites are a bit short, we have a 37' MH and we had to park our car partly in the camping area so we didn't stick out in the road. The park does not have Wi-Fi but we had good signal with AT&T and Verizon. The roads in the park are fine but the road in the RV area is a bit narrow and winding so you do need to take it pretty slow. With all the trees and water nearby, there were a fair share of mosquitoes so we did need bug repellent. Otherwise it's a fantastic place to stay. We would stay here again if we were in the area. - katfisch
This is a very nice campground, most sites are large and have trees/brush in between. Most have some shade especially the ones on numbers on the outside loop (sites 26, 28, 29 & 31). You can reserve a spot, but not a specific site. Nice picnic tables. Hard packed sand is the only drawback; it gets the RV sandy. Restrooms are modern, kept clean. There are 3 large showers in the bathrooms. It is quiet during the week, but lots of kids on the weekend. Some sites had more than their allotment of people camping on the same site. Sandhill cranes wander into campsites. We brought our canoe, but the lakes are fairly large; not the best for canoeing. Several motorboats and jetskis on the lakes. I wish the canal connecting the two lakes was longer as that was nice to canoe. Excellent boat ramps including a separate one for kayaks/canoes and another area for motorboats. Lots of people fishing - we didn't catch anything. - On the Road again 11
We thoroughly enjoyed this park. Lovely clean restrooms and external areas. Very long sites and plenty wide enough for slides. Fire rings and picnic tables for each site. And also very quiet at night. We were here during the week so it would be interesting to compare weekends. Easy commute to all the attractions of Disney, shops and other activities. We had two seniors and another adult and the cost was $17.00 per night which was the senior rate with no additional cost for the extra person. We will definitely be back in the near future. - Pegbag
We camped in site #23. You pick your site when you get there.Sites fit even the largest RVs. Rules aren't followed though about how many people or vehicles can be on a site. We saw 8 tents and about 40 people on one site right next to the park host. They probably rented the right amount of sites but all set up on the same one.Sites have fire ring and grill with picnic table and all packed limestone with poles ringing the site. Bathhouses are clean and large in center of loop. There are 4 family sites that will hold 3 families with 18 people. We swam in the lake which was still cold in April. The water is tea colored due to the cypress trees in the lake. Lots of boaters here but you cannot rent a canoe or kayak. Lifeguards only in summer time. We did the FL Orienteering Club's event on this weekend. Was quite warm but had a good time hiking in the Split Oak Forest. The park host has put together a film about the wildlife in the park and he shows it on Saturday nights in the Fall and Winter seasons. stores are pretty close. A Publix grocery is 7 miles away as well as restaurants. Was able to get many local TV stations and phones worked fine here. - FL Camper
This park was a bit pricey, but that is typical of KOA's. The spots were a bit tight and interior roads were as well. Construction currently going on was quite noisy, starting out at 7am every morning. Otherwise, the service was great and location worked well to access the sights of the area. Pool was a bonus and sites on the water were excellent. We had some branches hanging over into our site, touching our rig and the staff were there promptly to trim them for us. There didn't seem to be many options in the area, so we would recommend this park and would stay here again. - tmiller505
Have stayed here several times because it is the closest campground to Central Florida R&P. It has all the amenities you would expect KOA to have including an escort to your site 24 hours a day. Employees are friendly and helpful. Roads are paved, grass between sites, sites are either concrete, gravel or grass. We were able to wiggle back and forth a bit to get a satellite signal between the palm trees, electric was a little low but not enough to trip our surge protector. Water pressure a little low and they were working on the sewer system. It is big rig friendly, just a hair tight. We arrived after hours, the employee that escorted us to our site changed it because he wanted us to have more room. Pool and dog park are great and there is stuff for kids. Will stay here again. - Born2RV
We concluded a 7 night stay and were very happy with our experience in this campground. It is centrally located to all of the attractions. 25 minutes to Disney. 20 to Universal. 15 to International Drive. There is a Publix grocery store within 15 minutes. That shopping center also has an Outback available. The campground was amazingly clean and well maintained. Each day the employees show up in force to work on landscaping, picking up trash at your site, and maintaining the grounds. Their hard work shows. The store is well stocked with all necessary camping supplies, but also has a nice selection of gifts and accessories that are made by, and benefit, third world countries. This is a Christian campground. Keep your alcohol in your site and not out in the open. In 7 nights during the busy July season, it was always quiet by 9 PM. This campground is right on the lake, but not very large. Our site was B17, which is a new "Super Site", recently renovated. The pad was perfectly level, allowed for our truck to be parked next to the camper. The site was neatly maintained, with a hanging swing (for 2), grill box, fire ring, and table and chairs already in place for you. Plenty of space between sites with more than enough room for awnings and slideouts. These Super Sites can accommodate very large rigs with ease. Although we didn't use it, there is a very nice pool in the park, a boat ramp and a small pier. Loved the dog play park. We were very pleased with this campground. If we're in the area again, we'll be staying here. - ripwild
