37 RV Parks near Pierson, Florida

Very few RV spots and they could be difficult to get into as road is narrow. Seemed to be a lot of either full timers or people that keep their sites for weekends/summer. We were there for 3 nights during the week. It was quiet and all of the residents were nice. Friday afternoon lots of people came in for the weekend. Pool was great! They also had boat docks and boats for rent. Restrooms were clean and showers appeared to be new. Office did have some supplies like ice, beer and maybe wine and a few t-shirts/hats, etc. The only complaint we would have is that we were very close to the entrance road and people would come through and stir up dust. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will probably be back. But, if you are coming for lots to do, this isn't the place unless you fish, kayak or just want to relax, which is what we like. - Lindaosm

This place is an enigma. When we arrived on Saturday, the office was closed. We had reservations, so we found our site, the only empty one here. It was a bit rough and unlevel, but it worked. None of the help was around until we got settled. They were surprised that ANY site was open... the owner included. It's very quiet with a nice pool. It's about an hour's drive into St. Augustine, the reason we were here. Folks, as in Florida in general, are very friendly. Not much to see in the town and no hiking trails nearby, but we liked it. - Red Wolf Deux

Spent the weekend about an hour a little south of Jacksonville in a town named Welaka. It has 1 stop light and 1 gas station with a few places to eat. It looks like it is a town of about 500 or so folks. I went there for some fishing in and around the St Johns River. I stayed a little campground lodge by the name of Welaka Lodge and Resort. There are 4 nice looking cabins for rent, there are about 5 RV sites that do not have RV’s parked in them, some are work campers, there is a nice small swimming pool, and on Sundays they have a big party at the dock. Friday and Saturday evening most folks head to a place called “Shrimp R Us” that has live bands and some good food and drink. It is an easy walk from the campground. The owners of the campground are friendly and stay busy keeping the place up. There is no cable or TV reception so plan ahead if you go there. There is no late night parting that I seen as everyone disappeared at about 730PM each night and were not seen again until mid-morning. There are 2 cons about staying there besides the cable; the first is the “BLIND BUGS” 500 millions of them per square yard and they land on everything, get into everything and are a real pain to even walk through. They get side the camper faster than you can open and close the door and you spend along time killing them, really nasty tiny bugs. The second is you cannot launch your boat or kayak for the lodge; yes, they have a nice dock, but no boat ramps. Next door is a fishing camp that has a ramp but ….also has 100 million of the “BLIND BUGS” that make it impossible to even put the boat/kayak in the water as they get in your ears, eyes and mouth and all over everything including you and anything you have, to include getting in your vehicle. There is a public boat ramp down the street about 2 blocks (they only have about 5 million bugs there) that is one of the steepest I have ever seen about 60 degrees and 150 yards long. Then you have to find a place to park up on top the hill. There was 1 bait shop in town but it has gone under so bring your own bait or use artificial lures. The shrimp was running in that part of the river so the fishing was really slow I talked to no one that had caught anything the whole week. The fish were so full of free shrimp that they couldn’t move. In the evening the wind comes blowing through with such force that even using a 3 spike anchor you still drift. Would I go to Welaka for a weekend or fishing again? I cannot think of any reason to return. - jaxfl

This was our second time staying at Holiday Daytona. We enjoy the ambiance of this campground. The staff is VERY friendly. The camp store is very well stocked. We stayed in a Premium pull-through both times. There turns were very tight. There was no way I could turn without going through grass. Either the truck was going to have to go through the neighbors yard or, the trailer had to go through our yard. I picked they later of the 2 only to find that it had been raining a lot before we arrived and the trailer made some good size ruts in the lawn. Sadly, the weather wasn't cooperative with us the week we were there and with the exception of one day, it rained most of the time and the flooding was terrible. We had a grate next to our sight and it didn't help. You couldn't walk between sites on the grass or you would be in 2-3" of water. We were on the inner most circle. We did notice the sites on the next circle did not have that problem. Breaking don was an issue because the area around the hookups had little grass so I was in mud walking back and forth. Our spirits weren't dampened though nicer weather would have been nice. Certainly not the fault of the property. Just Mother Nature giving some water back! We would stay here (and will) without hesitation. - VBCampnfools

We stayed in a premium pull through site. The original site they assigned us had a concrete patio that was totally cracked with tree roots. After complaining, they assigned us another site that was not that much better. Sites are very close to each other. The bocce court was all weeds and hasn't been used in ages. This campground is over priced. We will not return here. - Roger & Mag

I can think of nothing bad to say about the large, well kept, park. It consists of two circles of sites, grass accentuated by well-spaced trees. There are amenities to match most any interest. Swimming pool. horseshoes, tennis, putt-putt golf, a children's playground, shuffleboard, volleyball, laundry, LP grass, a dump station, and Funbrellas. Our site was right next to the sewer treatment. Though there was no smell, the motor runs all of the time. If you think of it as white noise, it's not bothersome. The manager is hospitable, efficient, and concerned that you enjoy your stay. - The Penguin

Checked in to the park on recommendations from others, upon arriving there was nobody in the front office to check in. Proceeded to find an empty site and set up. On Sat morning went back up to the office to check in, woman was in the office and said she was the park manager, she proceeded to tell me I should have checked in when we arrived in case the spot was reserved, informed her we did stop in at the office but nobody was there. Paid for the site for a week, originally was told one price, then the price was raised. Very very rude so called park manager. Bathrooms were filthy and had a sewer smell to them, showers were also in bad shape and looked like they had not been cleaned in a while. Spoke to a couple of the permanent residents and was told that the sewer system backed up on a regular basis. Also noticed that the water pressure during our stay was way below par, almost non-existent at times. Also lots of electric surges and dimming of my lights and AC unit a lot. Lots of kids running around unattended at all times of the day and after dark, lots and lots of feral cats running around. Also a few dogs running around the park with and without owners and with no leashes. Roads are also definitely in need of major work, the main drive was littered with big open potholes, and the same with the drives in the parks. Lots of standing water after a few days of rain. Would recommend to stay away from this campground all together. If I could give a rating below a 1 I would. Not worth the money they charge with no amenities at all. - Biker911

Was referred here by a friend, will never stay at this park again.
Checked in on a Friday afternoon, nobody in the office for check in, and it was only noon. Found a nice somewhat level spot and set my trailer up. Neighbors are mostly permanent and living there full time, everybody was friendly, waved as we pulled in.
Park amenities,bathrooms were sub par and dirty, showers were dirty and you could see through the doors, lots of tents in the front of the roads, disheveled looking campsites, lots of tarps and junk at those sites.
Kids as young as 5 running around unsupervised.
On Sat went to the office to see about paying and find out what there was to do in the area.
The lady in the office was very rude as she spoke to me and my wife, told us the price for us to stay for a week, was more then I was quoted over the phone(almost like a bait and switch at the last minute). Asked about the difference in what I was quoted,and was told I was wrong. Proceeded to ask about what there was to to in he area, and she kind of brushed us off, an with a slight attitude was told about the beach and not much more,
There was a bar/restaurant called the Black Cloud, heard the food was really good but was told that it was not open.
The campsite was good, dry, it rained a little but no standing water. The roads are very narrow,uneven but no mud at least.
Had a nice stay in the area.
I won't go back there due to the so called management,asked who the owner was and was told he was away on vacation and could not be reached.
The woman was very rude,very nosy as well (would ride around on a golf cart and just looked at campsites with a angry look on her face).
I feel the owner needs to take more of a hands on approach,and possibly replace some of the management staff with some more friendlier people.
If you plan on staying here,get used to the sound of motorcycles on the weekend nonstop due to the track that's behind the campground. - Longrider

This is a large muddy field with mostly permanent residents, and many noisy motorcycles. I didn't feel very safe at this campground which is unusual for me. Florida had a rainy winter and ground was soft and muddy everywhere. It didn't rain while we were here. Very tight spaces on 3 sides. Zero privacy. Little rowdy at night, but it was a weekend. - IowaGirl

Park is clean but has very tight roads in spots. Mostly seasonal or year-round rigs. Adjoins a full time park and has joint activities. Most sites are treed. We had no problem with the turns or roads. - dalenoel

No welcoming personnel after five, no camp host, You're on your own. A box at reception outdoor contains your site number no other information about wifi or services, niet! The whole campground is rundown, with what seems like permanent resident in old mobile homes and old run down dirty units. Loud motorcycles, strong stench from dog poop. WiFi very poor, I am using my own. Narrow spot on grass, not level at all. I sure do not understand the attraction in this campground, the worst I have experienced in my year on the road. Lesson learned, do not let others make choices on my behalf. - Sire

Staff very friendly, nice pool, shuffleboard and pantaque/bocce ball courts not so good. Good laundry facilities. Lots of full timers with old run down dirty units with lots of clutter around and under units. Lots were full of pine cones, needles and leaves. Very tight roads and sites for large long rigs although I was lucky to get a roomy one(rare) for my 45' MH. Large number of noisey inconsiderate motorcycles coming and going constantly. One small garbage dumpster always full. Good location, good rates, stayed a month but would not return. - Jimbo1973

This is a co-op and most of the lots are owned. They have some spaces for temporaries. This was a last minute choice due to our original choice being under water from recent rains. The first night they only had room in "the back forty". It was on grass with electric and water only. It was a nice spot with good spacing between units. The roads were gravel. The next couple of nights we were moved into the non owner section. It also had gravel roads, gravel spaces, but very close to neighbors. So close you have to be careful with your slides that you don't hit your neighbor. These were more level than the back forty. If the back forty had sewer, I would have preferred there. - esta34950

No one in office, self registered. First site we picked electric didn't work, second site had to get 30 amps out of the 50 amp plug. Would not stay here again. - Cruiser31

Just a warning to others....... Their website is VERY misleading. We needed a place to stay for a month in Central Florida. We called from the previous campground that we'd been staying at to see if they had availability. The lady on the phone said "we only have one left". Since the campground that was our first choice was already full we went ahead and booked it. She wanted our credit card over the phone. I know better than paying for a site before seen but she said it was the last one! So I gave her the credit card number which she said would be charged that day. (Absolutely no refunds)
This could be a very long story but I will cut to the chase and comment on discrepancies with their website.
Concrete pads - I don't see any. We are parked on grass that sinks when it rains.
Restaurant- There is no restaurant on site much less that delivers. There is a mini mart at the entrance. Don't expect to get your milk and bread there, but if it's beer and soda you are after you are in luck!
Beach/Swimming footsteps from your site - There is no beach on the property. There is no water that you can swim in on property unless you don't mind swimming with alligators! There is a beach that you can see from the property but you need a vehicle to get there. It is part of the National Forest system so you have to pay fees to get in.
Laundry - Yes, there is a laundry "onsite" but it sits facing State Highway 40 and has a big sign with the hours written on it (the hours on the sign are incorrect) so it is open to the public. There is only COLD water wash available.
Boats and jet ski rental (As described on the Passport America site under 'highlights') - None.
Don't bother sending an email inquiry as their website suggests. I never did get a response. I also would caution you to NOT get anything of importance sent to you here via mail. We never did get the FedEx "overnight" envelope that was sent to us. Everybody that we met that was staying here was very nice. - RunAroundSue

Convenient RV park just minutes from the racetrack and a few more minutes from the beach. Good wifi and other amenities as you would expect. The park is large, but the feel is small. We stayed in a pull through site that is made to handle two RVs that are under ~40 feet. We were unfortunately charged $85/night to take up the entire site where it is $45/night if you are a couple of feet shorter. We will be back to this area, but will stay at a different park due to the cost. See our full review and pictures at our blog at thegilliamsisland. - Gary Gilliam

A large RV park right at the edge of the city on International Speedway Blvd. in Daytona and about 2 miles from the race track. It was Daytona Bike week and so they didn't have any vacancy so we opted for their overflow boondocking area. It's a large grassy field on the back side of the lake at the back of the RV Park. It is $22 a night, per person for boondocking during Bike Week. We really enjoyed it...even thow there were approx. 30-40 other people out there in small groups it was so spread out that there was a lot of space and privacy with nice views of the lake. There weren't any hours for the generators but due to the really large area, that wasn't an issue. We stayed there a week. It was at the back of their RV park but very easy to navigate through their park with my 42' 5th wheel and long bed crew cab truck. - JCZ

Good location and close to all the restaurant chains. Bahama Breeze had good specials. Had nice pull thru and little shade. Pool could sure use a shady spot. Not much going on in town so it was very quite. Wifi was useless and would drop me after 5 minutes. - Libby

We were here for two months at $730 a month. Sites are level and plenty of space for our 42' 5th wheel with our truck and my motorcycle beside our patio. Plenty of room in each site. 55+ park so it's quiet and when it's posted 10 mph, they mean 10 mph....they have a guy patrolling at night with a radar gun in his golf cart. Each site has a concrete slab, picnic table and a tree (our tree was very small). Asphalt driveways are in very good condition. Most are snow birds from the north that are there throughout the winter and then go back home in the spring and have known each other for years. Many activities but we didn't participate in those.....we were to busy exploring the surrounding areas. You are very near the Ocalla National Forest as well as being in Lake County there are many, many lakes so it's very scenic around there. An hour from Daytona Beach. - JCZ

Stayed here for 2 nights. Very nice park and will come back again. Attendant didn't know how to park us and brought us to the site backwards. Had to back in from the passenger side, to a slanted driver's side site. Not a problem for my husband who is a truck driver and there was enough room on the street to make adjustments. Used back and forth adjustments so we would not be backing over the patio. The attendant also turned on the breaker for us, telling us the breaker was on. I turned it off, as we had not hooked our power line up yet. Other than the attendant, we enjoyed our stay. They have many activities in the club house and a big library for books. Nice park with lots of friendly people and in the office. - consmith

The park is mostly one where snowbirds either own park models or have set up "camp" for the winter in their towables or motorhomes. But the park is well laid out, neat and convenient. It is not in the midst of the heavy commercialized areas. The fact that it is gated is a plus. There are many activities if you choose to participate. And it is on a beautiful lake. We liked the quietness due to it being a 55+ park. It is definitely a park we would go back to. - DGayle
Mar 2017 - $58.00
Very few sites have shade. Most are grass, some gravel. Our picnic table was on the hook-up side of the unit. Some sites had broken-up concrete patios. Campground is old and has not been kept up. WiFi was weak, even though we were next to the tower. Way overpriced for what you get. - ta96silver
Feb 2017 - $44.00
Staff was friendly and helpful. The sites are very oddly laid out and many rigs are parked at different angles to each other but at least they help you to your site or you wouldn't know how to park. They even had us drive through other sites to get to our site. The concrete pads are in bad shape and not where they should be to be useful. The premium sites have fresh gravel and are decent. The regular sites are dirt/sand/grass. Wifi worked sometimes but not dependable. Verizon hotspot worked fine. Good cable TV. Decent laundry room. Didn't use the restrooms. Some grass for dog walking. The biggest downside is the traffic. It is loud and lots of it. But it is close to the Speedway and Flea Market. Ok for a couple of days but we probably wouldn't stay here again. - thekites

Stayed on one of their large pull throughs. Staff very efficient and friendly. Wi-fi good. Cable very good. Many long-term campers with sites less than well kept. Maneuvering difficult with large coach and a tow vehicle. Bathroom small, but clean. Very convenient to I-95. Good for overnight stay. Site large gravel composition. - EdGuru
