19 Parks near Palmdale, Florida
Feb 2014 - $32.00
The park is in a beautiful natural area of Florida. It is set on a narrow river that is filled with gators and fish. They offer canoeing, kayaking, and nature trails. The price of rentals is reasonable. The service is another matter. If you go on the weekends you'll wait for service and the staff is less than kind. The canoe/kayak staff didn't say hello, can I help you or anything. They were extremely rude to everyone I saw come up for service. FYI, the park is in the middle of nowhere so you should ensure that you arrive prepared. There are no restaurants, markets or convenience stores within 25 miles plus. Dirt pads and when it rains, you'll get muddy. As many of my reviews in the past have stated, this is another park that has spent next to nothing on the park in the way of maintenance or updating the tables, sites, swing sets, or anything else. Concrete picnic tables that have been there for decades are crumbling. The only upgrades have been up to the Camp Store and boat ramp. But, if you're looking for a way to see the "old Florida", the place is worth a few days. Try and stay here during the week. - wmrkl

This is one of the most beautiful areas for canoeing, but creek was very low this time of year. Most of the campsites are very roomy and well spaced apart. The RV loops are further from the creek and boat launch. If you want RV hookups, Loop A is the shadiest, but furthest from the bathhouse. For a creek side tent site, #62 is one of the best. If only they had electric hookups in the tent area. They used to many years ago with previous owners. Bathhouse in the RV section is much nicer. Tent area bathhouse is very old. Due to a rain shower, floor was extremely muddy and had no TP. Some of the tent people drove up in their trucks with lots of kids and used the RV bathhouse: making it very noisy and crowded. Campground is busy on weekends, but quiet during the week (typical). - On the Road again 11

This campground is on a huge wildlife management area. There are three different parts to the campground. Two parts are primitive camp sites only. One of those is on the creek and the other is on a lake. The RV part is in an area between the primitive parts. There are shady RV spots, but not many. Most are very sunny. When the train came through it was kind of neat and it only happened one time while we were there. The store is well stocked with food and other supplies and the people who run it are very nice. The bathrooms were as clean as campground bathrooms can be expected to be. They were relatively close to all the RV sites, but pretty far from the primitive sites. They have a laundry facilities. Wood was directly delivered to your campsite when you bought it. It was a friendly place in a nice setting. It wasn't one of those huge KOA sites that has everything, but depending on what you like, this place may be just for you. It is in the middle of no where, so be prepared to travel if you have to run to the grocery store or want to eat out somewhere. This is a very nice CG to stay at. - MichaelW

The only downfall is a 15 mile trip to the nearest stores. A small convenience store within 1/2 mile is due to open, so that should help. It would be wise to stock up on groceries.
They have the standard RV park rules, but the unique thing is they enforce them! Absolutely great staff.
Our AT&T worked well for both voice and data. Typical Wi-Fi is available, not great, but adequate.
The best testimony I can give is : Are we returning again this winter and spending our money there?? YES-YES-YES.
After living in South Florida for 35 years I can attest that this is the best park for the buck in the area. - Dog Folks

Hard to find but once you are there, it is nice. secluded, reasonably quite and very well maintained. Palmdale may be just a Post Office and a memory of Florida's early years, but the managers of Sabal Palm RV Resort are Very friendly and most helpful. The drives are sand but the RV Pads are concrete and we loved it. Can't wait for next winter but remember it is "20 miles to anywhere". Check your map. Rates are reasonable and everyone is friendly. From bingo to music there is entertainment all the time. - jimdave

We stayed here 2 months mid January to mid March, 2014. This is a terrific park and the only reason I am rating an 8 instead of a 9 is because you park on grass and the roads are dirt. Otherwise, I would have given it a 9. The other reason is because you are 18 miles to the closest grocery store. I just planned the menu for the week and we shopped once a week. Spaces are flat and it was very easy to level your unit. The place has a miniature golf course but they were putting down new outdoor carpet so we didn't play the course. 3 small lakes are on the property and a couple of 'local' small gators and turtles call this place home. Laundry has 4 washers - 2 cost $1.50 and 2 cost $1.75. Not sure why they don't have all 4 the same cost. Dryers are the nice type that you can just feed with quarters until your clothes are dry. Cost is $0.25 per 8 minutes. They have a pool table, dart board 'man cave'. Also have a nice size rec room with kitchen area. Free library of VHS videos, books and games. You can request a space under trees with shade or be in the sun. Very large cyclone fenced dog park. Concrete patio with picnic table. Plenty of parking. Small store at the office with milk, beer, candy, ice cream, personal items, and a few RV repair items. Lots of places to ride your bikes. 2 shuffleboard courts, 2 Patagne (botche ball) courts, horseshoe pits, and swimming pool. - FullTimeRVers

We are snowbirds and spent three month in this park. Yes, it is in the middle of nowhere, but this is exactly the beauty of it. No traffic, inexpensive restaurants, easy one hour drive to either coast or Miami. And best of all, there are ample thins to do if you look for it: kayaking, target shooting, wilderness exploration, etc.
The park is well maintained and offers a great activity program. They even have a little restaurant on site that offers fast food almost at cost! There is a good size pool and the camp sites are very spacious. Needless to say, the people in this park are very friendly, and because the large majority of them are RV'ers, you are not look at as a nuisance like in parks where there are a lot of 'park model people'.
The crazy thing about this park is how inexpensive it is! We have for many years stayed at other parks in this area and never seen anything like this. - dswiss

This park is in the middle of nowhere, but has great services. They have a snack bar, many activities, and the people are very friendly. The wifi is purchased through an outside company and is sporadic which is frustrating. Would still recommend this campground for seasonal and short term visitors. - chillyvt

Pulled in at 3:05 pm just as the office was being closed up for the day...they made us come in the next day to settle our account...grrrr. Our site escort was an extremely kind gentleman who started to squeeze us in between two RVs while there was 30-40 empty sites just a few feet away. He had to call back to the office lady for permission to allow us one of the sites with a little breathing room...permission was begrudgingly granted.
This is a large, pretty park in a country setting. The grounds and facilities are very well maintained and clean. It's predominately a snowbird park, but it's evident they stay on top of the guests to ensure nobody starts to look trashy.
Good value at PA rate, but Wifi is not included. I don't understand them not having a single pull-through with all the land available...hint, hint. - Full-Time Roamers

This park is really nice, with long paved sites. There aren't as many trees as I would have liked to see for shade but you either will get the morning sun or afternoon sun depending on your site you select. We opted to be on Site 22 initially, which is on the water and changed as the afternoon sun was unbearable in the afternoon on patio side. We switched to Site 18 and we're glad we did as we could barbecue in the late afternoon for dinner and watch TV outside in the shade provided by motor home and awning. The campground itself is really clean, well maintained, and host was very nice and friendly. It was fun to watch the big yachts and fishing boats wait to go through the lock. This place does not have sewer hookups, but for us it was not a problem, but there is a dump station.There isn't a lot to do here, but if you just want to chill, this is a great place. We drove to Naples and Fort Myers for day trips. All in all, I would come back here to just relax and not do anything. Great park! - etp

Nice campground on the waterway connecting Lake Okeechobee to the Gulf. Sites are level and well laid out and nicely spaced. You can fish in the waterway but otherwise no access such as swimming! - ournextstop

Very clean, well kept COE park. The campground is located right at a lock & dam on the Okeechobee Waterway. Water/electric utilities worked great. You can walk down and view the boats going through the locks. There are lots of fishing docks available. We stayed here 6 nights. - jacknpeg

The park is very open with spacious sites, all back-in. Mostly seasonal snowbird residents, but all very friendly. There is not much to do in the area except fishing but this is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The only downside is lack of a pool. Good Wi-Fi, but no AT&T service, others might have better reception. - Oldbillm

Nice park, mostly permanent sites. Stayed for five nights, owners were very nice and they took Passport America during the winter!! Not much nearby, but we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Very friendly campers here. - Landyachty

If you're looking for a nice, quiet campground, this is it. It's out in the country, and you hear cows and roosters! Unfortunately, its also a drive to do any shopping, Clewiston having the closest WalMart, or Okeechobee for more shopping selection. There is an Indian casino about 10 minutes up the road that has great penny slot machines! Wi-fi was free but kept disconnecting and couldn't get re-connected. About half are permanent trailers. We used PA for 1 week, regular rate for 2nd week. - pandcallen

Checkin was smooth, fast and friendly. Our site was level and fully serviced e/w/s. Cell and Sat reception was very good. Their campground wifi was iffy - it is being replaced by new provider? Pool was heated but could use a good powerwash cleaning. Many full-time winter snowbirds. Lots of activities. Overall friendly atmosphere. Only negative was dealing with their new Harbormaster(?). Totally lacks personal skills when dealing with customers. Didn't see that side when he was around staff/ management, just when not in their presence. Rumor was he is going to run their new riverside bar? That should be interesting! Will return and recommend to others. - Snowbird22

This park is not a resort unless you are a golf lover. Even then that is pushing it. Shower areas are filthy and scary to shower in. Laundry is very small both areas have only 4 washers. Power goes off all the time here without warning. Not very good for electronics in the unit. When water is working the pressure is very poor. Park is over 15 miles to the nearest grocery store so laying in supplies is a must. Office staff makes up rules as they go. Policies change constantly without notice to anyone. I would not stay in this joke of a park again. - cowboysailor

Are you kidding; run from this place if you want your sanity. This park is said to be in Moore Haven, but that is the furthest town from the park. You are 20 minutes from any town. The people who run the park have no clue what they are doing. The office is only open Monday - Friday from 10 am - 5 pm. They do not carry any RV supplies of any kind. They have an overpriced restaurant, golf course and the campers plan the activities not the employees. Things break down and they do not fix it. Our electric meter was broken and instead of fixing it, they decided on a flat rate to just charge us. The staff is more than clueless on how to bill and what they are doing. While we were here, the power and water went out together with no notice and no one was informed as to why, but the entire park was out. The spaces are nice, but no one obeys the rules. Dogs run without leashes. People who have camped here every winter for the past 10 years are not going to be returning to this park. I would avoid this park at all costs. No one even knows who the owners are. - dkjellander

We stayed in The Glenns area of this park which comprises of large grass sites with full service. The campground host and staff were very friendly and accommodating. There are a number of long term residences here but they are all very well kept and the residents are friendly and speak highly of their experiences staying here. A very nice park and we will be stopping here again. - Irish2

We enjoyed a complimentary 4 day stay by attending the Fort Myers RV Show. We had a wonderful stay with time spent in the pool, playing bingo and watching the multitude of activities that were taking place as a result of a week long celebration of the park and its residents! The restrooms and showers were beautifully redone and very up-to-date. There was a problem with the water that you were not informed about until you drove out the entrance. Because of the rain, many of the sites were muddy grass because of the soft dirt. The staff and the residents were friendly and welcoming. It was a joy to stay here. - Summer Minnesotan

This is one of the nicest places we have stayed & have already booked for Jan. 2017. The staff was warm & friendly helping you get set up both coming & departing, lots to do here with daily activities. The comfort stations are second to none as far as being clean & fairly new, the sites are clean & well laid out for big rigs in the Glen area of the park. Pool was great also with a very nice activity center. You will meet a lot of nice people here. There is a new Walmart coming in nearby with several good restaurants nearby; traffic is not a problem in Labelle. - 1972 camaro

We kind of enjoyed this park for 2 nights. Inspite of the fact that it is out in the middle of nowhere, rundown and needs upgrading, we had a nice view of the estuary and enjoyed slamming the fish-cleaning house door to attract the large alligators to the dock. Also, a great wetlands bird-watching place. Some of the seasonal people were still there who were very friendly and told us that the park is almost full during season. They have a great clubhouse where they had an ice cream social and a resident bluegrass jam session. We would return for a few nights again if we are ever in the area. - Desertqueensb

Park appears to be For Sale, Very rundown, low voltage power. Laundry all but defunct. Would not step foot in restrooms, let alone use them. No windbreaks makes a very windy park. Could barely see bottom of 4 ft swimming pool. Many, old, rundown RV's in this park. Only hard stand sites are in the parking lot, the rest is sand and gravel. There is no security gate so anyone can drive in. Water pressure is good. Club house but no activities that we could see. Fish cleaning house and boat docks. Park is very isolated with nothing around for several miles. We would not stay here again. It was a reduced rate park through RPI. - retditto
Dec 2015 - $50.00
We didn't do the daily rate, stayed a month for $700.
Beautiful, clean, friendly park but waaaaay overpriced.
Mostly permanent mobiles and "florida homes" with about 15% RV's.
Right on the river (from Lake O all the way to the Gulf at Ft. Meyers), with its own launch ramp and docks.
Joined some friends during our winter in "the south", just to check it out.
The entire place revolves around their "activities".....ain't my thing.
Management is stiff, formal, and unyielding, but "inmates" are very nice.
If you have the money and get excited over shuffleboard, this is the place. - MajorOz
Feb 2016 - $25.00
This older campground seems to be slowly deteriorating. Sites can be close or very spaced. Landscaping is neglected. The best part of this campground are the wonderful residents. There was no activity in the Chiki-Hut and few other activities. The Shuffleboard court is in sad shape with cracks and weeds growing through the court. The hot tub was a nice 102 degrees, but had lots of leaves in it. The pool was never above 72 degrees and usually empty. The was a problem with the water, and we had to find out from the neighbor not to drink it. We should have been informed by management The roads in the park are deteriorating and in need of repairs. Our site had a shared access with two other sites. The monthly rate was $730. We will not return. - Summer Minnesotan

This is an older campground that boasts mature pine and palm trees and "grass" between sites. Quite a variation in site dimensions but mostly comfortable for spacing. Grass is not watered any more so is rather brown and sparse in the winter months. Nice paved streets and concrete parking slabs with side extension for table and chairs. Picnic tables provided. Perhaps 50% Permanent sites. Very friendly residents. Morning breakfast in Chiki-Hut by volunteers. Some activities. Shuffleboard, Horseshoe pits seldom used but in nice shape. Hot tub at 102, Pool at 80. Monthly rate about $650. Walking distance to Groceries. Closest spots a block from street making for rather quiet surroundings. - easydoesit
