We stayed here in a 21ft travel trailer. The site was mostly quiet and the people were very friendly. They have full hook ups available, but we didn't have sewer on our site. There is a good amount of space between sites. You can't beat the price for Orlando! We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in site 4, plenty large with close access to bath house. Lake and two docks within walking distance. Handled everything by phone (including payment), came in after the office was closed so I never talked to anyone at the office. Only negatives relate to departing. The road is not big enough to get around someone hooking up if they are sticking out. We were leaving at 11 so several others were leaving at the same time. If anyone has to stop at the dump station, the traffic behind has to wait, you cannot pass. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Loved this park! It is close to the entertainment area of Orlando and yet so peaceful and quiet. The lake is pretty - even though a little busy on weekends especially during regatta season. The disc golf courses and hiking trails were great. We were in two different sites because we couldn't book the same one for our entire stay. Both were nice. Not extremely level, but we were able to get our trailer leveled without too many problems. The roads are a little tight so drive slowly. The restrooms and laundry room were clean. Verizon and T-mobile signal were good. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed the stay. The sites were back-in and pitched (we had to lift the front in quite a bit) and just long enough for the TT. The park is small and the drive through is very narrow. Big rigs would have a harder time. The spots on the inside of the circle (full hook ups) are crowded with not much room around any side. There is a dump at the exit but you block all traffic when you stop. It was a clean park but several of the washers/dryers weren't functioning. I loved the lake and there is a lot to do but the main attraction is that this is a really nice park close to Disney. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.
