20 RV Parks near Palmdale, Florida
Mar 2017 - $30.00
This park is ideal for a country setting, no hustle or bustle as in the cities, quiet and you have plenty of space (elbow room) between campers. The pool is beautiful and well maintained. Activities are great during the winter season with bingo, crafts, exercises, pot luck dinners and music with the park musicians doing jam sessions, normally on Friday evenings. Dances and parties on special occasions during the season. This is our second year here and we love it. Everyone here is friendly and you can relax in solitude or mingle with your fellow campers, your choice. The owner seems to bend over backwards to accommodate their guests. Even building a 9 hole golf course which I certainly will enjoy. No place is perfect but this seems to come pretty close to our expectation and needs. The only disadvantage is the nearest food store is about 17 miles away. Our little store close by burnt down the summer of 2016. It was very convenient and miss it but we love being out in the middle of nowhere. The dogs will love their small and large dog parks. It is fun just to watch them romp and play here, very spacious... Love it, love it, and we love it. - Clark Haynam

IF you love a quiet, country setting, this is an amazing place. Beautiful heated pool, wifi hot-spots, security gate and some pet cows, horses, ponies and goats away from the sites to feed in the morning. Groceries and gas are 15 miles away so planning is a must. THEY ARE WORKING ON A 9HOLE GOLF COURSE FOR THIS WINTER.... great managers and an awesome place to stay. - Frankie dee

Absolutely love this park, 2016/2017 was our second winter season to stay and it has become our second home. Can't say enough how wonderful it is with all the animals and large trees. - Ajnobbe

This is "old FL" section of the State. Campground is on Fish Eating Creek, which is a great fishing destination. Kayaking is good but low water level in the Winter limits it. Sites were level and grassy and nicely spaced out. Pack your supplies before coming as no convenient shopping near by. We enjoyed our stay and will be back! - ournextstop

Great hiking & beautiful creek views. Very much a weekend haven - but by Sunday afternoon the park is yours! Great wildlife - bring your binoculars! No much else to do without a long drive. Great getaway to just chill. - kettlebelle

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

We stayed here 3 months, it takes a little "getting used to" due to the remoteness. The people are friendly and the price is great! We had a concrete drive and patio which was very convenient. Decent OTA TV from both coasts, since you in the middle. Lots of activities if you are so inclined. Verizon service was very good. There is a new Love's gas station with an Arby's that should be open by March 2017 and will be about 4 miles away. If we winter in South Florida again, we would stay here. - jtl2

Very friendly people staying here. Every night: cards or games are played, if you wish to play. No trees to worry about the droppings on your rig. They are going thru some changes but this didn't impact our stay. Worth while to check into.
NO, camp fires are allowed in this area of Florida. Storage area for extra towed rigs for no charge. - LindaCourt

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

Our rate was America the Senior Pass. We like the sites 21-30 toward the back of the park as they have an awesome view of the river and the locks. Recommend surge protection on your electric as power has tripped on us & did seriously impact another RV. We saw bald eagles and an otter family. Not much for kids to do. Beautiful paved road, concrete pads with crushed stone sites & each site has covered picnic table, a grill & a fire pit. A wonderful spot to unwind, read, maybe fish. We love it here! It would be a 10 if the sites had sewer. - R&S

Typical of the Corps of Engineer parks we've stayed at, this is a very nice campground with paved roads and pads, two restrooms and a dump station. It is situated on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River which flows from Lake Okeechobee. Together with the St. Lucie River/Canal which connects Lake Okeechobee with the Atlantic Ocean, this waterway stretches 154 miles across Florida from coast to coast. Sites in the western portion of this campground generally have more space between sites and has more pull throughs. All sites have 30 and 50 amp service and the water quality and pressure was good. Power did go off at least twice during a 7 day stay but came back on quickly. The restrooms are roomy but aren't being cleaned thoroughly. Most/all sites have a covered picnic table, fire pit, and BBQ within a gravel area and most sites have at least a little shade. Those camped on the north side of the east-west park road have a nicer view of the river, which has boat/yacht traffic and good fishing opportunities from the several access points within the park. La Belle is considerably closer and larger than Moore Haven. - Camera Buff

As a writer this was the perfect campground for me to sit outside on the picnic table and enjoy the warm weather of Florida. The owner is the best and she truly caters to the needs of everyone on the grounds. Completely spotless restrooms, enclosed laundry room, great Wi-Fi and lots of open space for your pets. I stayed 6 weeks in my pop-up camper. For me the Dollar General Store 11 miles away was good enough for all my weekly needs and those of Puggie my dog! - Nypoet

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

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

We "camped" at Whisper Creek from Mid December 2016 thru mid March 2017. We had site 451 in the "The Glenn", which is a grass site with a concrete patio. The park is well maintained by a great work-camper crew. The office staff is a work-camper/paid staff combination and are friendly and helpful. The shower houses are spotless and there is a full size laundromat on site. Whisper Creek has a very active resident committee, fully supported by management offering many activities and entertainment options. The residents who own their park models are friendly and welcome shorter stay residents. There is an inviting heated pool under a Lānaʻi (screened area). Many of the activities are very active and well attended. There are Shuffle Board and Pétanque (look it up) sessions and tournaments along with dances, karaoke, bingo, craft classes, Red Hat Women, bowling, lunches, dinners, etc. There is a end of season Festival Week that celebrates the residents with special activities, games, contests, and meals. In 2017 the week coincided with Mardi Gras with a Mardi Gras theme, which also included a Golf Cart Parade. The park also offers golf cart rentals. One note, the park was sold in 2016 and the new owners were in process of taking over the management of the park while we were there. - Indy Glenn

We came here based on reviews. Big mistake. The maintenance crew was excellent. The office manager was rude, arrogant, and probably a lot of other terms. The season was rainy, very rainy. CG can't be blamed for that, but we found that the office manager was so bad that we couldn't get any help with mud ruts and just plain mud. We talked with a great many of the residents who maybe were afraid to complain for fear of retribution from this manager. The entertainment was great, but most of it had already been sold during the previous seasons to to residents who had permanent units. The term "resort" means to me a "mobile home" park with non-permanent residents who lived there full time. We had problems with mail, water being shut off with no notice, and sign tied to a pole advising to boil water until further notice. Without any personal notice to residents, quite a few times the electric was off. WiFi was poor at the best. We were told most places charged for WiFi- not so in my experience. - capemaal

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 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

"Wow" is all we can say. This is a beautiful RV park. Not complete yet, but it's going to be an amazing first class park. Looking forward to next season returning to our paved site, gorgeous pool, organic produce mart, beauty salon and exciting activities right here on site. Brand new everything. Welcoming and spotless! Super friendly and family owned and operated. Feeling blessed to have our spot reserved. - HavingFunFromWisconsin

This is a new park under construction with an opening date in the Spring 2017. I have not actually stayed there yet, but I have already made reservations for next winter season, 2017/2018. I am generally there about twice per week to check on the progress, and I have spent quite a bit of time with the owner/developer and his daughter who will manage the park once complete. It is a privately owned park, and the owners are making every effort to create a well maintained, landscaped, and pleasant park with wide interior roads. All sites will be paver bricks with patio. There is a large bathhouse with private showers and laundry facility. At the back of the laundry/bathhouse, which faces the pond, there is a small patio that will be screened in and house a small coffee bar. The park will have a heated pool and clubhouse along with an activities director to keep everyone as busy as they want. The Rec Center, which houses the office, exercise equipment room, and meeting room will also house a warming kitchen with refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher to be used by resident groups in the park. The back of the Rec Center will lead to the swimming pool and a screened in porch. There is a beauty shop on site, and a restaurant and fresh vegetable store are planned. There will be a fishing pier on the pond and a walking path around it. Currently all the pads around the east of the pond are in. Today they were spreading top soil for the sod. There is an irrigation system for the grass. The shower/laundry facility is just about finished along with the clubhouse. The pool opens the 1st of March. Speaking with the manager she said they already have reservations for this coming March, and next year's winter season is starting to fill up. As we were making our reservations, our neighbors from our current park, came in and made reservations for next year as well. My intent with this review is to inform people, who may want to stay off the beaten SW Florida Snowbird path, that there is a new park for them to research. Rate given in review is for a 4 month daily rate. - Indy Glenn
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
