Very good. In the middle of the city but would not know it. Woods, lake, close to everything. 20 min to downtown. $15 a night. Some sites do not have sewer. Did not use baths. Will stay next year. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean and well maintained park and campground. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Sites were not extremely long but we were able to park a 40 foot fifth wheel and truck at the site. Some of the sites are full hook-up and some only have water and electricity. Very clean laundry facilities. The road in the campground was fairly tight but going slowly made it driveable. The one downside was driving this road in the dark as there were no other lights. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

What a GEM! Who would have thought that in downtown Orlando there would be a small lake with 36 RV sites? We stayed here while visiting Universal Studios - only 10 minutes away!! Half are full hookups, the remainder only water and electricity, but also has a dump station. No cable, but several on air stations available if you don't have satellite. Some sites fully shaded, most partial. Sites are concrete, but NOT level. In fact, our site had a foot of fall making leveling the coach a challenge. But, that's the only issue - and a small issue when valuing the benefit of the location. Highly recommend this park surrounded by city. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.

This park has a lot to offer: Mature oak trees and pines, windy roads, a walking trail along the lake, multiple playgrounds for the kids. We were able to park our 38' motorhome and be fully hooked up and leveled within just a few minutes. Driving out was harder as the road is very windy, but we made it out just fine! Making a reservation could've been easier if we were able to do it online, but the phone call was easy enough. Overall, we had a very peaceful, enjoyable stay and would park here again! We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.

Prior reviewers captured the essence of this Campground. It's situated in a large, we'll maintained Orlando City park. There are several amenities within the park itself, including about 2-mile radius of biking/walking trails. There is also some nature trails. Even though the campground is heavily shades, there are no shrubs. So you can see every part of the camping area from each site. There are only 36 RV sites here and not 41. The restrooms are cleans but the colors of the floor tiles cloud that. The one thing I wish the park authorities need to consider is installing some street lights with the campground. It is dark at night. I don't see much negatives at this park. Yes, there are no shrubs, therefore, little privacy. But many of the sites back into the fence, and have reasonable distances from other sites. I will definitely use this campground on my next trip to Orlando. The proximity to everything and reasonable rates is a huge plus. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.

This is a nice city park & campground in Orlando, which is very convenient to shopping and attractions. We did not have sewer, but some sites did have it. Tent/cabin sites are at a different area, but a nice feature. Campground road is too twisty & narrow & need widening, so be very careful. Clean laundry room -$1 wash & $1 dry. No fires allowed. No grill at the site. Each site paved enough only for your unit & not enough room for provided picnic table. We were allowed to park our truck on the grass. Severe ant infestation, so bring treatment. Lots of shade & many over the air TV stations. Park gate is locked at night with keypad entry. Nice bike/walking paths. We liked it there. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Nice Publix grocery store is a very short drive away in a strip mall with other services. Turn right when you leave the park, and watch on the right.

Clean, gated park. Lots of shade, with trails all around you. Less than 30 minutes from all of the attractions. Close to shops and restaurants. Level sites with good hook ups. A real steal for the Orlando area. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

There are a limited number of sites with full hook-up facilities, so make a reservation if you need a sewer. The sites are long enough for a 42 foot motorhome if you park your tow vehicle on the ground (which is allowed at this park). The sites are spacious and the trees are very nice. As one reviewer stated, some sites are less level than others. All are concrete pads, which is nice during rainy days.

We will stay here again in the future. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.

As stated in previous reviews a lot of the sites are very sloped. We also saw a lot of units with wheels off the ground. Our site was better, it was #7. All the pads are concrete, roads are paved, but narrow and twisty. The bath facility was new and very clean. Very quiet place to stay. We will be back. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Fifth Wheel.
