This is an extremely well maintained class A Resort. Staff was helpful and friendly at check in, and escorted us to our site. The interior roads are paved and wide, so big rig access is good. Our pull in site was very spacious, plenty of space for our towed, but there was little privacy between sites, and no shade trees. Patio furniture was the absolute bare minimum, which we found surprising at a Resort of this caliber. Our level pad was lovely brick pavers, and it was very quiet and peaceful both day and night. We had a river front site, well worth the extra money, as we had a truly wonderful view of the lovely Myakka River through our front windshield. The spotless bathrooms and laundry are located in the clubhouse, along with a fitness center. A pool, spa, pickle ball and tennis courts are located behind the clubhouse. There is a security gate 24/7 which we appreciated. Very pet friendly with a fenced dog run and plenty of pick up bags and disposal stations located around the Resort. Wifi and AT&T were both good. We would stay here again. - tobyjug

Price reflects monthly rate for December 2015 for a front-in site facing out towards the river walk and river. We additionally paid $248 for electricity for the month. Class A only resort with superb amenities and activities. Owners live on site and are very hands on and cordial. There is a security gate and large dog run. Streets are paved with concrete sidewalks and brick sites. Some sites are privately owned with casitas. Park is fairly convenient to shopping and restaurants. We would definitely return. - BigRigTravelerUSA

This is first class Class A resort. This was our second visit and we stayed for a week in early September. The resort has a feeling of seclusion along the beautiful Myakka River but is convenient to the amenities and beaches of the Port Charlotte area.
The resort is well laid out and immaculately cared for. The pool and club house has almost anything you would need; sunset patio bar with BBQ, pool table, laundry, fitness center, washrooms and showers, spa, etc. We especially enjoyed the boardwalk along the river and the large dog park.
We are already planning our next trip. - User1230

First up, would I stay here again.. absolutely. The rate reflects the price for a week long stay. Convenient to the training sports park for the Tampa bay Rays and local amenities. 50 amp service, pet friendly, good WIFI coverage from both Verizon and the paid provider. We had just purchased our motor home and this was our first RV park location. We lived in the area and picked this park based on location and the ability to get set up in our new home. The park has excellent WIFI coverage from Verizon and 5 meg download speeds from the JABBA wifi provider which is a little pricey. No free WIFI is available at the site but free WIFI is available in the club house. The very professional & friendly staff is excellent and the park is well maintained with the streets in pretty good shape for the most part. Nice and wide for large rigs and few, if any, bad spots. The site is considered grass but most of the grass has worn away from heavy use which leaves mostly sand and dirt that is easily tracked into the coach even with an outdoor rug to mitigate for the lack of a pad. However, the site is very spacious and very well maintained with rock solid 50 amp electric and the water pressures were very good. There are a lot of permanent modular homes in this park but it is still a quiet and very safe location. No garbage pick up at the site, you have to take your garbage to a central location near the entrance. The garbage drop off site is large and it's not difficult to use with plenty of space to turn around in. Overall, this is a great park for the most part and would have received 5 stars in every category if the site had a concrete pad and garbage pick up had been provided. The price was a little high for being in April and charged as peak season which should have ended at the end of March when most snowbirds head North but that seems to be standard for Florida's west coast parks. We stayed 2 weeks. - Denny C

This was an acceptable park, especially since our choices were limited in the Fort Meyers area due to availability in the peak season. We had a standard back in site, dirt with concrete picnic table pad. Getting in was somewhat tricky due to the narrow distance between the power pole and keeping the door side wheels off the concrete pad to assure being level, as well as a caution not to back the trailer wheels over the buried water lines near the rear of the site. Mostly park models in our area of the park. The staff was friendly and professional. There seemed to be plenty of activities for long term residents, mainly snowbirds. The pool always seemed crowded and there were pickle ball and tennis games played at courts across from us each night. This area is not as flashy as the resort areas further south on both the Gulf and Atlantic Florida coasts, but not bad. There are plenty of eating and shopping options not far away. - one_strange_texan

This is an Encore park with 500+ sitrs but most are park models. There are standard, elite and preier sites for RVs. The premier are very large but all in open grassy field. We had standard site with a concrete pad for picnic table and sand parking area. Many of these sites are large. We were able to have shade most of the time and get satellite from our roof mount dish. The pool is adequate. Hot tub nice but small for the size of park. There are about 50 fulltime residents who are friendly. Staff very nice. Summer months and mosquitos make sitting side mostly uncomfortable. The roads are very good, drain good during summer storms. The park is quiet and convienent to all shopping in Port Charlotte. - venice

Amenities list high speed internet which is handled by Camp Link. Our site was 2 sites from an antenna, but internet wouldn't work. I phoned Camp Link and they told me it was their worst park because of the electrical noise from the Walmart Distribution Centre across the street. The Camp Link person on the phone gave me a full refund but also told me that the camp management knew about the internet problem. I had to buy an internet plan at Walmart that worked fine but Live Oak indicates it is included. The other problem we had is the pool temperature is only 78* which is quite cool. Except for the above two problems, this was a very nice well kept park with large lots. I told them about these two problems at the store and they made it sound like I was the first to ever mention it; however, many people I talked to at the pool told me they had voiced the same concerns and got the same response. - Jacknel

We stayed for two months and were so impressed with Live Oak we returning in 2014 for 4 months. People were so friendly, went to the Monday morning meeting to find out what is going on for the week. All kinds of community functions never a dull moment if you want to attend. Well run and well cared for, made use of propane filling at resort, reasonable and convenient. Stayed in monthly sites near dog walk, they were large with the cement pad and we liked them but will have a site within the resort in 2014. - Westwind

Nice older RV park with many permanent sites. Short term RVs are parked at what they call the dog park, on grass with concrete patio's. The patios stick out of the ground a couple of inches causing a tripping hazard. The water is from a well and is strong with chlorine, dark clothing changes color when washed. There are two nice laundries. The pool and hot tub are old but well kept. There are a number of activities, but short term folks (those staying less than 6 months) are not really encouraged to attend. The golf course is 9 holes and very nice. The Peace River is close by, as is Punta Gorda. Beaches are 35 miles or more. Ft. Myers is 35 miles south and Sarasota is about 4o miles north. Arcadia is 20 miles north. There is a Wal Mart Distribution center across Hwy 17 from the park and at night you can hear the truck back up horns and hear the trucks being loaded making it difficult to sleep. The office staff and park residents are friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable and the owners do not increase the prices often. We would stay here again but probably not for three months. - linfrog

This is a beautiful motorcoach resort. The lots are much larger than at most other such developments. The developer is still offering a free 3 night stay to tour the property and it appears about 2/3 of the lots are now sold. The owners have installed pavers, beautiful landscaping and many lots now have nice casitas. Any rentals would be from the individual owners. They had a wine and cheese party at the clubhouse while we were there and every owner we met was very friendly. If there is a downside to this resort it would be the location, 10 miles outside of Punta Gorda on a rather remote road. No stores/restaurants nearby. The resort does own a small area on the Thornton Creek/Peace River where you can launch a boat or fish which is just a short golf cart ride away. The hospitality we experienced here was over the top. Quite a place. - Nautical Wheelers

This is a ownership property with 99 sites by the very small town of Ft Ogden. Punta Gorda is 20 miles west and Port Charlotte another 5 miles or so away. They began building here in 2015 and about 1/3 of the lots are sold. There are 6 ponds with fountains and a total of 58 acres. There's a beautiful clubhouse and heated pool. The developers offer a 4 day/3 night free stay to look at their property. They graciously allowed us to stay on site 2 a pull in with a view of one of the ponds. All sites have pavers and many sites are building casitas and screened rooms. Definitely a high end community. - cincychic

This is a new and still being built out motorcoach-only park. You will be renting sites from owners in the rental pool. Sites are spacious and well landscaped. Near to Punta Gorda and there is a gold course next door. They at present have a "3-day stay and see free" program, which I am not sure how long will be there. This is a very nice park. - peddy dick

Well maintained co-op park with friendly, helpful residents, good water pressure and electricity. Convenient to most of Punta Gorda. Sites are level and sandy; we used jack pads. Close to the Punta Gorda airport, but we only heard planes on Saturday morning. This is our third visit to Waters Edge and we will return. - Mom_of_Two

Very friendly, helpful residents, accommodating, widest space between between rigs we have ever had! The only downside is that there is no one in the office on weekends. Board members stepped in to cover though. Utilities are excellent. No cable but lots of channels in the air. Wifi booster helped the signal in our rig. Propane and garbage pickup at your site! - GailMOH

We just stayed one night, but found the RV resort to be nice. Most of the park is filled with owned sites that are a mix of park models/trailers and RVs, but there's room for short-term visitors like us too. The permanent sites are generally nicely kept up with landscaping, decorations, etc. The north area of the park was very crowded/cramped, with narrow roads, small sites, and lots of golf carts driving around. Our grass site in the "S" section (east side) was much nicer, and even though it had no sewer, we greatly preferred that location (except for having to drive through the north section to get there) as it felt much more spacious. Since our site was grass, when we put down own motorhome's leveling jacks, they sunk right into the ground instead of lifting us. Fortunately we had some wood blocks we could put under them for support. Strangely, the 50 amp pedestal was at the extreme front of the back-in site, while the water hookup was 40' back into the site. Although the site was 60+ feet long, we had to park our rig right up against the road for our power cord to reach the pedestal. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, a pleasure to work with. Dogs aren't supposed to be walked on any site but your own, however there's a very large grassy area on the east end of the park that's fine for walks, and a surprisingly large fenced dog park. Cell service was good, and although it's near the airport, we didn't notice much noise. We'd stay here again for a longer stay when visiting family in the area. - LifeRebooted

This was the second time I stayed here for a week in February. Most of the people here in February are "seasonal" campers who stay from December or January through March or April. The campground is like a small, friendly city. The staff is excellent. If I had any complaint it would be that, for the number of campers, there are only three shower stalls in each of the restroom facilities, but there are several restrooms throughout the park.
There is an old section and a new section in the park. In the old section, the sites are very close together. In the new section, they are a good distance apart.
If you are a seasonal member, there are dawn to dusk activities. If you are just passing through, as I am each year, there are still things to do, like shuffleboard, tennis, etc. While I was there, a vendor set up a seafood stand with fish, clams, lobster, and scallops. I bought scallops, which were excellent when I cooked them. - NC Gypsy

NOTE: Our rate posted is based on an extended 6 month stay. Call the park to get the current daily/weekly/monthly rate which varies depending on length of stay. Park is clean, well kept, and all sites/areas offer wide, paved roads, full hookups on all sites (some with only 30 amp in the historic section), crushed stone/shell parking with varying sized cement patio surfaces. There is WiFi by Tengo park wide but some report great signal while others, not so much. 2 Swimming Pools with varying depth, 3 Laundry/comfort stations, and 2 fenced dog parks. Pet friendly but frown on retractable leashes. 3 differing sections in the park offer slightly different amenities. The "historic" section is the original part of the park. Does NOT have cable TV available. OTA is available via antenna and most sites can accomodate portable satellite where others are tree covered. Some snowbirds who stay for months also sign up for Centurylink DSL (up to 20MB) since this area has "landline" hookups on sites. The "Ponds" section is newer with wider sites, grassy areas but fewer trees. Cable TV (park ran) is offered in this section as is WiFi by Tengo and Centurylink DSL. Being a newer section, this area also offers little to no shade on most sites and because of this, can be more windy than the historic section. The "Lakes" is the newest section of the park. It is the most expensive of the areas, offers the largest sites in the park, has cable TV and Wi-Fi but no DSL for internet. Again, due to the lack of trees and overgrowth, shade and windbreaks are at a minimum or non existent in this area. But if you desire room to stretch out and value privacy, the Lakes may be the area for you. - J Moon

Exceptionally clean and well maintained. The RV lots are kind of tight but no worse than other RV parks. Staff was helpful and friendly. Many different activities are offered and people are very welcoming to travelers. - Mimi-Papa

If you manage your expectations properly, you'll enjoy your stay here as we did. Nov 2017 - Mar 2018 we paid $510/month plus electric. WalMart, WinnDixie, Publix, Walgreens between 15-20 minutes away in Port Charlotte. Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda is 40 minutes. The husband/wife who ran the place while we were there (retiring just after we left March 2018) were so friendly and helpful, they help set the tone for the property. The majority of this RV park is not actually RVs, but a combination of newer manufactured and some old, old, old trailers - like if they were powerwashed they'd probably fall over. This can create an "us vs them" mentality in parks like this, where the fulltimers don't really like the seasonal or transient people coming through. That wasn't our experience here at all, though, as fulltimer neighbors made a point of waving, chatting, even sharing some local apples! Everybody waves as you come and go, it was a very nice feeling. Some sections of the park have large shade trees and there are varying levels of landscaping. The section we were in had no trees, but that was good for our solar. The roads/turns were easy to navigate in our motorhome and the streets are paved. There were about five new upgraded pads with fresh landscaping for RVs, they're very spacious and they charge a little more. The only negative thing we experienced was the fire ants and the sandy/grassy spot. It was a pain sweeping sand out of everything, but small price to pay for all the pluses. We had a concrete patio, plus room on the grass to set up our 12' Clam (bring your own picnic table!), and still had plenty of space between that and our neighbors. There were tons of activities at the clubhouse - something for everyone, day and night. The pool was well attended and there was at least one block party. We definitely recommend staying here. - Roaming Together

The most amazing find in the entire State of Florida. We stayed from November to April. We found this beautiful, down home park about three years ago and fell in love. It is very well kept, has been updated but still has the old time campground feel. Without a doubt the most friendly park we have ever stayed in and we would still be there had we not bought a home down the road. Oak Haven has full hookups, paved streets, a country setting next to the Peace River yet close to Wal Mart, downtown Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte. The Management Team is exceptional and will go the extra mile to make your stay perfect. The rates are outstanding considering the area and for long term/winter folks you pay your own electric which is very reasonable and they have city water, not well water which was a plus for us. There are tons of activities if you like becoming involved, they have dinners, dances and pool parties that are awesome. I would hope nothing other than the weather ever changes in this park because it is the best we have ever found..It is home! Thank You Oak Haven for just being you. - linfrog

Stayed here one night and it seemed like they were not prepared for us coming. Drove through trees that scratched our new motorhome. No electric we got there in the dark and had to call them to turn it on. Our motorhome was on unlevel grass and the down riggers sunk into the ground. Lots of bugs and mosquito's. We thought we were going to be on a level gravel pad. Live and learn it cost us our $200.00 deposit and we did have a reservation. Not happy at all. They were kind enough to trim the trees in the morning and offered to put gravel down. Too little too late. - Keally

Nice park. Geared to snow birds. Clean and functional. Gravel sites, most with patios. Many planned events. Campers are friendly, so is the staff. Full hookups. Some sites are close but most are roomy. - Dano849

Like the campground and the people. Next to Peace River for kayaking (bring your own). Not far from Walmart, Cracker Barrel & Nav-a-gator. Water has a lot to be desired (sulfur) (dogs got the runs). Rain all day one day and run off was good, but soggy. Lots of fire ants but that's Florida. Will return again. - HOMEBODYFL1948

This is a good park if you are on a very very tight budget. My site was muddy, the potable water is worse than horrible, and management is agreeable to anything: the park looks it! There's very small, tight parking areas. The staff keeps the park very neat and they do perform some services. This was my second park to stay at and I guess the first one spoiled me. I know a lot more now about picking a place to stay. - OPEPPER

It's really a manufactured home park with a few RV spots and we stayed here eight nights. The homes are well maintained, not the decrepit mildew stained structures you see in some parks. It's a good location, and the price is in accordance with the location. You do here noise from 41, and we would not consider this for an option for an entire winter - especially at this price. Our site was actually just outside the park entrance, one of three sites jammed together next to the maintenance building. We couldn't locate our sewer hookup at first and realized it was about 10 inches from our neighbor's picnic table. That's close! When we pulled our slides out we were less than two feet from his screened awning. Some of the people in the office were friendly, one in particular seems to run the place and snaps at the others who work there. Unfortunate for them. Pool/hot tub/clubhouse are well maintained, along with the rest of the property. - Roaming Together

Called ahead and asked about accommodations for our 40 foot RV. Told we could be accommodated. We drove there and were greeted less than kindly. The woman at the counter looked out the window at our coach maybe not realizing I was already at the desk and said "So this is it huh?!" I waited a while before she came around to ask what I needed. She then proceeded to tell me they couldn't put us on this park. I asked why they didn't tell me this when I called. She didn't have a good answer. There was inadequate space to turn around once we had pulled in. This should NOT be listed as an overnight accommodation in any of the RV listings!! - RNRVtravler

A couple of areas that weren't perfect but the service and helpfulness more than made up for it. Stayed for over 3 months due to medical issues and we were treated very well.
Power wasn't very good. Meter showed a consistent 108 volts so we were careful with what appliances we were running. Needed three 10' lengths of sewer hose, slightly up hill at our site (G28).
Mostly seasonal sites. Expect winter time would be hard to book.
A couple of pull throughs.
Would definitely stay again. - MissingLinc
