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. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Travel Trailer.
Close to Universal Studios and Orlando shopping malls.

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. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Fifth Wheel.
Universal Studios (with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter) is only 4 miles away!! There is a Publix less than a mile from the entrance, and Walmart Supercenter is close too. Also good proximity to Disney, International Drive, downtown Orlando - the location is obviously the best reason for booking a stay here.

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.

This is a fairly nice campground. Rates are less than private ones around. Most sites are shaded. Level sites are nearer to the campground entrance. Sites in the upper 30's across from the restrooms, are shaded and level. The ones heading down hill are slanted as previously mentioned. Parking is on concrete pads. The sites are large but open, therefore you can see your neighbors. You can see the lake from most campsites; but, there is a fence between the campground and the lake. Some sites including ours lacked a picnic table. They could use a paved walkway from the road to the restrooms - it must be hard on handicapped people. Restrooms could use some updating. They are cleaned daily from 7:30-9 am by a service. Park & swimming pool are heavily used on weekends. There is no swimming in the lake. We did see a couple of alligators.

This was our 3rd visit to this park this year. Very convenient to anything in Orlando. Clean, quiet. Not all sites have sewer hookup. Some pads are quite slanted, either side to side or front to back. Rate is for non-sewer site. Reserve early as this park is popular, especially during busy times for the theme parks.

Very pretty county park with an RV park that looks like it was an afterthought. Roads are really narrow and windy, spots are short and the layout of the RV area makes for a very open, unprivate environment. We could only get water/electric hookup so had to shower in the bathrooms. Good water pressure but if more than one person was showering then the hot water ran out quick! Spiders and cobwebs up above made for a quick shower as well! Overall, an average park but the good rates made it worthwhile. Good proximity to Universal Studios and Epcot.

We stayed here for two and a half weeks. This is a nice park. The RV area is at the end of interior road of the park. The road inside the RV area is a little tight in some areas and had some sharp potholes making it a bit tricky to get around. The park got very busy on a couple of weekends that we were here - a dog show one weekend and a regatta another which made the park a little hard to get in and out of. Bathrooms are older and in OK shape. Sites are a bit unlevel but workable. Grounds are well maintained. Laundry was adequate but one dryer was broken so competition for machines was a bit high. Security gate locks at night but they give you a code to get in. Ours did not work the first night but the after hours person was reachable via phone and we got back into the park after about a 10 minute wait. Staff seem very nice and helpful. Verizon 4G service was decent to good here. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Travel Trailer.Undo

What a nice park. The City of Orlando should be commended. The park is well laid out and easy to navigate with big rigs. The park has many activities in a very spacious setting. The CG is easy to maneuver and sites are easy to back into. Many of the sites were full hookup. The bath houses were clean, but in need of some fixing-up. The CG had an openness about it with a lot of grass. Different from many other CG's we have been to. The location is perfect for anyone wanting visiting the area or simply just wanting to get away for a few days. Only a couple of down sides; the park does not allow any camp fires and the dump station is on the main route out of the CG with no room to pass around. But for the price, activities in the park and a great setting, these can be over looked. Will stay here again. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This is a great park and a spectacular value! Beautiful setting, gated and secure, and reasonably priced. Not 10 minutes to Universal Studios! Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed walking around the park's nature trails and the lake. One of our favorite parks. Clean and attractive sites and park grounds. We would definitely return.

Fantastic park, although quite small. Great location, we cycled to Universal which took 30 mins. Staff were friendly enough and the park bins were emptied regularly. Only downsides were the restrooms and showers look a bit tired and need a bit of TLC, the sites were not level, and the park is too small if you enjoy cycling. Would definitely stay here again though; for the price it is unbeatable in the area. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.Undo

Great park! We normally stay at Fort Wilderness but since we tried to book at the last minute we couldn't get a site at Disney FW. Glad we didn't! This park is only 15 minutes from Disney and has much larger sites than Disney. Turkey lake has concrete slabs and they are just as long as in Disney but they are not as wide as the premium Disney sites. We had full hookups, the people and staff were very nice. The bathrooms/showers were clean although not as grand as Disney. This park is in a great and family safe location near great restaurants, shopping, fuel, groceries, and theme parks but yet hidden and away from all the surroundings. Fishing, Bicycle paths, small farm, kids play areas, pool, dock gives you plenty of things to do. Will be staying here instead of Disney Fort Wilderness from now on. Gave it a 9 /10 because the concrete slabs weren't level. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Travel Trailer.Undo

A gem of a park and an unbelievable value for the money. The road through the campground requires concentration on the part of big rig drivers, but is passable. A good number of the sites are not level and I noted a few rigs with wheels in the air. The sites are spacious and reminiscent of state parks I camped in as a child. The city of Orlando does a really nice job caring for this facility. Our site had an issue with the 50 amp service on the pedestal and it was corrected less than 24 hr after I reported it. Should I return to Orlando I will stay here again. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.Undo

Very nice city park close to everything. I-4 is around 4 miles from here. Our site had 30/50 amps, water, sewer, and table. You have 14 sites with sewer drops. The sites are cement, set at 45 degrees to the road, not level side to side or front to back but was not hard to correct. No burning of wood here, a good thing to me. Lots of nice shade trees in park. Road on RV loop is on the small side but not a problem to travel on. You have 36 RV sites, 5 cabins, and open field for tent sites. Park is super size (170 acres) and sets next to Turkey Lake. The pool is super size. We have never been in a city park this nice before. You have a lot of things to play with in this park. Views down on the lake are great. TV over the air will pick up all the local stations. Verizon cell and 3G air card worked well here. Checked bathhouse and found it great as well, all water systems are on automatic (turning water on and off), very clean, showers have a dresses place and a place to hang up your stuff, and wheelchair friendly. Did not find a wheelchair walkway in and out of bathhouses. Staff was helpful at check in. Anyone should be happy here. You will pick up a small amount of road noise down in tent and cabin zone, RV camping very little. Gates are locked at night but you have a code to get in. What a find this place is!

Wow! This is the deal of a lifetime, right in Orlando. We were less than 10 minutes from Universal. Nice park with gated entrance (requires entering a code after hours to enter) in really nice upscale area. We were surprised that only 2/3 of the sites were full. $23 for a full hookup (water, electric, 30/50 Amp, and sewer) is insane this close to the theme parks. The only reason I didn't give them a 10 was the showers were pretty darn clean, just not squeaky clean. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This is a wonderful campground in a great location in Orlando: just 5 miles or so from Sea World. A variety of options are available from dry camping in a field for $15, electric and water for $18, and FHU for $23. There is a lot to do within the park from bike riding to disc golf to a children's farm. There are plenty of trees and a a large lake. The sites are roomy. Some are level, but others have a fairly significant slope. Cell service was good and TV signal with antenna was good. It was quiet and didn't feel at all like you were right in Orlando. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.Undo
