We stayed here for 9 months developing our RV inspection business. It was cheaper than most for winter rates, but you get what you pay for. For a full time RVer my impression is this is an old park model park for snowbirds. This makes it tough for the bigger RVs to get into. If management is there, they will help you get in.

In the busy season there are vehicles everywhere. With the tight roads navigating the park can be a challenge.

The sites have minimal asphalt and it is mostly old and deteriorating. Most sites slope from back to front with sewer located in the back. The grass is mostly weeds and there are lots of ants. Sitting out most times of the year is difficult due to mosquitoes and no-see-ums.

Water pressure is good and the free Wi-Fi, outside of the busy season, is adequate.

You are at least 30 minutes from the beach depending on traffic. The closest grocery store is 7 miles away. There is a Dollar General about a half mile away.

The park is located right next to train tracks. I counted anywhere from two to ten trains a day with excessive whistle blowing as the train crosses Bayshore Rd. If you are hard of hearing the vibrations will alert you to their presence. LOL

Rates: Yearly $344/mo plus electric, monthly in the busy season is $772, $399 out of the busy season. Nightly is $39/nt in season, $30 out of season. We camped at Fiesta Grove in a Motorhome.

Recently new managers have done a great job of improving this park. Very clean, well kept, and friendly, helpful staff. Wifi worked excellent.

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Fiesta Grove in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Midway between St. Perersburg, Tampa, and Sarasota. Good location to visit those areas.

Park is about 2/3 permanent park models and 1/3 RV's. Some of the permanents are older, but all are exceptionally well kept. Residents are friendly, and there are many scheduled activities (as well as many informal groups throughout the park). Many RV's are seasonal and have been coming back for years.

Hook ups were convenient. Wi-Fi connection was excellent. No cable TV, but Dish reception was great, and antenna brought in major network channels.

We did need leveling blocks at Site 151, but most of the sites looked better. We camped at Fiesta Grove in a Motorhome.

Friendly 55+ park with excellent office staff. Most residents are annuals who live in permanently affixed mobile homes, but there are a few RV spaces available. We stayed at site 204 which is a paved, full hookup, back-in site. It was large enough for our 42' RV and there was room to park our SUV in front crossways. This site was fairly easy to get into as site 63 across the road was empty at the time we arrived. Site 205 is even easier to get into since it is on the end where the road curves. The roads around the outside (Fiesta Loop North and South) are wide enough to negotiate in a large RV, but the inner streets are a bit narrow. Amenities include a swimming pool and club house where movie nights and other planned activities are held. There is also men's bike riding group and a car washing area. This park has one unique feature I'd like to see more places: Community clothes lines. They were used frequently by the park's residents instead of the electric dryers in the laundry room. The adjoining property has a "bark park" which some of the residents of Fiesta Grove also utilized. Price noted reflects the pro-rated cost of a multi night stay which included a Good Sam Discount plus a free night coupon we got at the Tampa RV show. We camped at Fiesta Grove in a Motorhome.

Friendly staff and residents. Narrow streets that could cause back-in problems. Plenty of fire ants but this is Florida. Excellent wi-fi. $ reflects Passport America. We camped at Fiesta Grove in a Travel Trailer.

We would come back here again. The only down side to the park, is the narrow streets. We didn't have any problems backing into our site, but you might want to check ahead. We paid by the week. Pancake breakfast was outstanding for $3. This is a older,well maintained, and very clean park. They only reason I gave it an 8 is the narrow streets. We camped at Fiesta Grove in a Motorhome.

Friendliest park in Florida. Most residents are long-term/seasonal in park models with rooms added. The heated pool (88*) was wonderful. Lots of "activities" on tap. Spaces are cut into old orange grove; ancient trees bear little more than Spanish moss at this point. Immediately adjacent to the "Frog Creek Park" but more space and more sunshine. We camped at Fiesta Grove in a Travel Trailer.
