This has the potential to be a fantastic RV resort. Awesome new casitas and all sites are well developed with wide pavers. Sites are beautifully landscaped. Next to interstate but no road noise. The only disappointment was that site maintenance seemed to be dragging a bit and the landscape (shrubs and lawned areas) were in need of some attention. The "on site"garbage containers on our site had not been collected in a while. Mosquitoes were wicked and we were not sure if they were spraying for them or not. But in all fairness, it is central Florida and some mosquitoes are to be expected. All that said this is a wonderful facility and anyone who visits here will likely be pleased. - americanrascal

We stayed on a private site at Bay Lake. The park is nicely situated between Orlando and Lakeland and there are other nice towns nearby. The entrance is off the road enough that it is fairly quiet, and it is nicely landscaped. The clubhouse is very nice, with a beautiful games room (nice pool table), big screen tv, gorgeous pool/patio/barbecues, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge, card tables and a great laundry. The clubhouse was very well kept and clean, and there are various activities for those so inclined. There are friendly sales/rentals agents on site from Monday to Friday for your convenience. There is private access to a small lake from the dock on the property. The lots that have been sold are extremely well developed with brick pavers, beautiful landscaping, casitas (small residences) and lighting. There still remain quite a few lots for sale, but this is to the buyer's advantage as good prices can be negotiated. Overall, we really enjoyed the resort and would recommend it to anyone travelling through the area with a motor coach. We KNOW we will definitely stay there again with the wonderful folks who we rented from. The lot owners were very friendly and the setting was serene. Try Bay Lake, you won't be disappointed! - J Reimer

We randomly choose Bay Lake Motorcoach Resort, after a stay in Orlando. It must have been fate, since after we stayed for a week, we loved the area and the resort so much that we purchased land to park our RV and eventually build a small casita on the spacious lot. There were many reasons that we choose to do so. It is 20 minutes from Walt Disney World, so it is ideal for family to come visit and to be able to visit the park, the resort has a lovely, clean clubhouse with swimming pool, hot tub, game room, exercise room, etc., the other residents are very friendly and the resort is managed by a great team, who go above and beyond in terms of service and friendliness. After travelling with our RV for over 5 years, we have never come across a place that was as ideal as this place is. We have also met many people who rent a space and come back year after year. We wish we had found it sooner. - Helena150

This park is just off I-4 and very convenient. It is a Snowbird park and almost all residents are seasonal. Everyone we met was very nice and friendly and the park is clean and well maintained.
The park is very old and showing its age. There is little investment in new infrastructure so the concrete pads are cracking, the picnic tables need to be replaced, the water volume/pressure is very limited and our power suffered from undervoltage and breakers tripping at the post. We lost power for short periods on 5 out of the 10 days we were there.
I really like this park, its location and its view of the pond but it needs a serious reinvestment in utilities and upgrades. - Miss Adventure

We made reservations there but when we arrived, there was no one to greet us (not after hours), just a note on the door. The site we reserved was on the water (think swamp) and was surrounded by cluttered seasonal sites with a lot of junk on them. The picnic table was falling apart and the fire ring was nearly submersed in water. The other campers did not seem friendly. We are reasonable, tolerant people, but we did not see the value in staying there at all. We left and went to Bay Lake Motorcoach Resort across the highway. That resort is SO MUCH BETTER!! - J Reimer

Great place to stop over for the night. The lady in the office was extremely nice. No Wi-Fi. - stlmp

This is a private class a motorhome park. Lots are rented by current owners. I have been here 7 months with no issues. Clean, secure, beautiful landscape, and pleasant neighbors.
Many park models, and casitas with large paved parking spaces. - sballey

We spent a month here so we observed a lot. Easy in and out. Roads are paved. Excellent office staff. Very nice, newly redone facilities. Most sites are level but grass or dirt (or mud if rains). Most sites are pretty long. Very high percent of sites have live oak trees for shade but in spring were VERY messy. We had a lot of rain and some sites were very muddy. Some sites have patio slabs which would help with mud. Road noise from I-4 ranges from very bad to just annoying depending on how far away you are (and how good your hearing is I suppose). - cwier

The front desk employees were super nice, had everything ready for us when we got there. The escort to our site was very helpful. The permanent homes were very well kept. The pool and deck were clean and nice size. Although it is close to a main road it was not noisey. The bathrooms were very clean..do need updates on some of the showers. If in that area again we will stay here. We stayed in a pull through site. - T-Ster

Stayed for a week, campsite very unkempt, un-level, between two seasonal sites that were pretty rough looking and just 40 feet from I-4 freeway. One neighbors site was very littered and disgusting. Campground in overall good location for activities in Lakeland area, and had nice pool and clubhouse area, small dog park which was very dirty. Mostly seasonal sites, mainly friendly people. You have to pay for wifi, and cable. Many rules there, but witnessed that most were being broken. Would look for another campground next time. - 13wapiti

A slightly upgraded fish camp and trailer park. Grass and weeds not cut routinely during this time of year obviously; not many people here so management doesn't care. Repairs are very slow - if at all; leaking water spigot never did get fixed. Walked around park, and there was a major water leak between cabins flowing out of ground. Office is not manned at all. Dog area is over grown and can't be used unless you have a Great Dane. Looks like more help needed in maintaining this park. Some pads were recently pressure washed looked great; others haven't been cleaned in years. A table is provided, also. Need some kind of management and TLC. - UsnRet

Very disappointing. All other reviews are misleading. View is great at entrance but park is tired. If you have dogs, avoid this park. Residents have a very stringent pet policy. Dog must either relieve themselves on your site or you can take them by car to the dog walk at campground entrance. You can walk your dog in some other places but it is against policy for the dogs to relieve themselves. Yeah, right!!! If reserving site, do NOT provide credit card information. They do not accept credit cards. Also, bring your red ant treatments. People are friendly here but this is not a park for short timers. - ljs2114

Our third visit: time for a review. An extremely quiet, very peaceful place. Staying 2 months instead of 2 weeks this time. Our monthly rate is $475 (cash or check, no credit cards I think). The monthly rate divided by 30 days, explains the $16 nightly rate listed above. Good easy roads coming in, good tree clearance, had some large 90degrees curves but no problems even with a 37ft MH plus Jeep toad. Great security gate closes after hours, has buzzers to staff for visitors and individual codes for entry. Did have to back in to our space, but no problem. Nice level sites, good power, water, and sewer hookup. Picnic table and concrete patio with most. Decent looking and very clean showerhouse / laundry too. Both our phones (Verizon and ATT) work very well here. Satellite TV works well, we have an 'open' site with no obstructions and using fixed dish atop coach, no problems. Due to location (between Orlando and Tampa), we get dozens of channels via digital antenna in addition to DirectTV. I think they have Wi-Fi now, we have our own Mi-Fi so not sure. VERY friendly people, close-knit golf-cart community! Lots of social activities in the two clubhouses (pool tables, games, dinners, dances, even a live music show this week). Most here are 1/2 year, senior snowbirds, no kids except for a few visitors. Long-term residents association, is a plus for all. Has a good working relationship with the owners, no problems here. 1100 acre Lake Lowery is wonderful. Beautiful to view and great to fish! Has a sheltered canal, keep your boat in the water 24/7, for free!!! Only thing that could be considered missing is a pool (but we're snowbirds, so, so what) and an exercise / workout room. But this place is a senior park so neither is really needed I guess. So it's not on the ocean, but it's on a real pretty lake you can fish and keep a boat plus dozens of golf courses nearby. A real Florida jewel, great spot to winter and not outrageously expensive. - TheGrandMan

Very reasonably-priced RV/mobile home park with management on site. Well maintained with more upgrades to come. Paved interior roads with speed bumps. Grassy lots mowed short and sprayed for insert control. Centrally located clean laundry and restrooms; trash dumpster emptied often. Dump station. Keyed mail boxes available. Propane sales tank just added. Mixture of residents: parents with some children/retired persons; short and long stays. Leashed pets allowed. Extremely convenient location in north Lakeland with Sweet Bay grocery store across the street; Publix, CVS, and Walgreens very near, as well as Wal-mart about a block away. Major shopping center and Orange Bowl Lanes just south. Several golf courses nearby. Our first choice for this area. - kctylers
Jan 2016 - $27.00
Rate is for W/E/S, 30-amp, pull-thru.
Blacktop sites a bit uneven and very close to your neighbor. Parking for your toad or tow vehicle is at a premium as some sites are short.
However, office staff great, trying to accommodate your needs. Close to Orlando and theme parks. Shopping close by.
Owners are converting many sites to manufactured homes as vacation rentals or for sale as snowbird homes.
We would stay here again.
Good over the air TV reception. - thetravelkids

Older park that is well maintained and clean with up to date sites. Nice people work there and its handy being close to everything. - EdNorm

This park is right off Interstate 4 so there is some road noise but it not bad. If you’re a big rig like us, 40 ft class A with toad, know that this is an older park with narrow paved roads that can get a little tight around the turns but is doable. The longer you are the harder it will be to level because the paved pull-through sites are all nose up. Each site has a small concrete slab with a picnic table on it that is located toward the back of each campsite, not ideal for a class A, next to your neighbor's sewer hookup, so your picnic table sits only a few feet away from it. No fire rings. Most pull-throughs are wide enough for a big rig with 4 slides and awning but may not be long enough if you’re 40 ft+ with a toad. There are a few large trees in the park but plenty of open sky for your satellite. We did notice a problem with dogs off lead and cats being let out to roam around, so lookout for dog poo and cats spraying your tires. Bathrooms and laundry were clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. - Road Train

Very clean Rv park with just what we require as fulltimers. Well kept up, but has been sold to a commercial developer, could be it's last year in business. - Teacher's Pet
Mar 2016 - $66.00
This is a very large, clean park. Our site was easily accessed but our view was the 2 dumpsters across the street, and the nearby hotels and their bright night lights. We were only here for 2 days so those things were not a big concern for us. The laundry facility that I used was in the middle of the park and was very small and unkempt. I had to clean the lint traps prior to using the dryers. Even after pre-treatment of a few fresh food stains, the stains remained after the wash. The cost of using them is about average for an rv park. The staff in the office was friendly and accommodating but the staff out on the grounds in their golf carts, never acknowledged anyone, not even a smile. Access to the interstate is great, especially if you are going to Disney. Pets are welcome on leashes and they have a small dog park. They even provide dog bags and small trash containers for the doggie-do. Overall, we would stay again when traveling this way. - Lovingretirement16

Park was very well kept and staff was very accomodating. All of the facilities were clean, and if you have a dog, convenient drop sites with bags. Our site was on a extreme slope, so it took several blocks to get us level. Most of the monthly sites have some degree of slope. If you are here weekly, the sites are more level. Great location for easy on/off rt. 4. Disney only 20min. away. - ceil

This park's location is great for visiting the Orlando and Tampa area attractions, and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. It is a very large campground with a lot of sites, but unless you stay in the back of the property, you would never know it as it is quiet even though it is near the interstate. There are a lot of palm trees so our site had considerable shade, but it did make it a little tight in some spots for getting our 35-ft RV in and out of the site. The price was right for the location, and we will stay here again the next time we visit the area. - goobs
Mar 2014 - $30.00
Rate reflects a one-month stay. We stayed in the Regal Pointe section which is the more recent development. Lovely resort, with paved roads and large sites, executive golf course, nice pool and clubhouse, and very well maintained. Our site backed onto the ninth green. Very nice, but for some reason however, the RV pads were built with a significant slope, and getting level meant having my front wheels off the ground. Many permanent residents, but very most people were friendly and welcoming. Organized activities galore with breakfasts, cards, Wii, Wii, crafts, dances, etc. WiFi was good, but only available in the clubhouse. Located close to I-4 and Hwy 27, and traffic is horrendous. Getting in and out of the resort was a challenge. Overall, a great place to stay. - Voyageurs

We stayed for 1 week visiting friends. We did not get a confirmation and had to rely on our friends to keep us informed. We were bounced around 3 times before we arrived. We were told that they only guarantee that an acceptable site will be provided, not a particular site. The site we were given was not acceptable, in that 2 days after we arrived, the electric company knocked on our door and stated that the electricity was going to be shut off because of non-payment. When we explained that we were renting from the owners for a week, they said we had 1 hour to settle the issue. We called park management and we assume that they were able to contact the owners since we did not have the power shut off. But...what if they couldn't contact the owners...or worse, what if we hadn't been home and had returned at night to find the power off and couldn't resolve the issue until the next day? In fairness, the site owners bought out the owner of the park last month and things have been in upheaval since...but I think that the park should not rent out owners' sites without knowing if all of their utilities are paid...especially at the outrageous prices that are being charged. We paid $403 for one week (including tax) and this did not include cable. We will not return to this park and will instead stay at the KOA down the road. - rena

We spent one week here. This is really not an "overnight" park and you could have a wonderful stay..but.. There are two worlds here. (1)This is an older RV park that they are selling lots off in for park models or owner sights $29,000 each. There were only 7 rental sights available and they were all located between park models and to small for our 45' bus. (2) There is a A class motor home only section that lot owners rent lots from when they are absent. These lots are wonderful, double wide, 90 ft. well landscaped and many on the water (sell for $69,000). We paid $150. for 1 week electricity included. Park is as advertised, golf course and all. If you call ask for the head park ranger who works from 6AM until 2PM she knows which owner lots are available for rent. Otherwise you will have the sales office who will try to sell you a lot. - fulltimer 2
