29 Parks near River Ranch, Florida
Mar 2016 - $21.00
This park is primarily filled with snow birds who either own or rent park models, some of which are well worn. Folks there were friendly and there were plenty of planned activities, but definitely an older crowd. It was a safe environment and the few spaces that were rented out for rv's were grass/sand with a small but adequate slab and a picnic table. We were placed into slot 39 and all was well until we got ready to leave. After receiving some heavy rain during our stay, when we tried to leave the truck tires sank quickly into the sand. One of the neighbors came to help and stated that site 39 is particularly notorious for getting people stuck. No problem, the office send a front end loader and chained to our truck to pull us out. All in all not a bad experience and we could and would stay there again. The place just needs a little TLC to make it a great place to stay. - the Fishers

We stayed here one month, thus the rate is a monthly rate and included utilities. We were pleasantly surprised at how well kept this park was. It is mostly permanent residents with very old trailers, but there are a few RV sites. There were lots of activities and the residents were very friendly. Many permanent sites are for sale as they have just been purchased by a company who is almost doubling their rent. We also found out the site we were in will only be available on a weekly basis next year and the prices were double what we paid. We were visiting friends in the Kissimmee area and this was a perfect location that was away from Orlando/Kissimmee traffic. There is still a lot of traffic and there also is an Amtrak train that runs through in the night. All utilities worked really well including the WIFI. Roads are narrow and take a lot of maneuvering to get into. Ours just happened to be a straight pull in site as you come in the park so wonderful location. - jacknpeg

Great experience. Easy to find. Didn't pre-book. Lovely friendly helpful staff. Gave us the Summer rate, 24hr free Wi Fi, bit slow but adequate. Very quiet. Almost empty in June as Snow Birds have gone home. We stayed 2 nights and would stay here again. Sites are long and level. - Kings USA Travels

We have stayed at this campsite a few times with multiple families and though it is a nice clean location I would give it a good rating.
The sites a fairly sized and it has two sections, one area is shaded and one is an open parking lot.
The staff are always friendly and accommodating but we prefer more wooded areas.
The pool is nice and clean and it's quite at night minus the airboats that go down river.
They hold fishing tournaments here and they are always interesting to see. - Senora Frog

10 miles in off Rt 60 on a paved road. Very nice office staff. Got a paver site with lots of shade. Cable is $5 extra so I used the sat. The pool is there as advertised and not impressive [not a bit of shade]. The grounds are huge and well taken care of. The lounge was fun. State park entrance close by. Pricy for summer rates. May stop again. - Libby

Great place! We visit Camp Mack several times a year. It is both a Summer and Winter campground. We camp with 3-5 families each time. Staff is very accommodating and nice. Highly recommend! - elbar21

Rate reflects a 3 month commitment. This was our first time staying and we spent the winter (Jan-Mar). This is a 'community' park in the sense that everybody is family. Sites are spacious, activities are age appropriate, new-comers are welcome--we didn't want to leave when the time came and we've already reserved our space for Jan - Apr 2013. - Lonnie Clark

It is one of the parks with the cleanest restrooms and showers we've been in. We're full-timers for 5 years now. This is the 2nd time we've stayed here. Highly recommend it. - Marybeth5613

Good value for the money. The restroom, shower and laundry room are five star. Good location and a nice pool. Would stay here again. - DanMain

We stayed 2 nights. This park is very isolated and has a nice boat ramp and hiking trails. We hiked one trail that was a little over 2 miles long and climbed up the observation tower for a wonderful view of the lake and park! You can fish in the boat ramp area and around the day use pavilions. You should have a Florida fresh water fishing licence. They have canoes and boats for rent. Make sure you bring everything with you and gas up before you get to the park. We had wild turkeys and 2 deer visit us right behind our trailer both mornings. The sites are all under big oak trees with lots of shade. The loops are not too tight. There were some big rigs parked there. I had no trouble backing our 25 ft travel trailer in. We could not put our awning out which was fine, we didn't need it as the weather was perfect! The air boats are loud but background noise for a few minutes does not bother us. - RV Dreamer

I can't say enough good things about this park. Each campsite was private, spacious, and beautiful. The showers and bath houses were clean and in beautiful shape. The rangers were nice and helpful. Next time I will plan to stay longer. - BobW

Very pretty campground surrounded by cows and oranges. It's off the beaten path so make sure to bring what you need. Sites are level and covered with shells and dense vegetation. Restrooms are huge, modern and clean. Saw a single washer/dryer outside the restroom. No Verizon 4G but you can access Internet near the camp store. - LeeBob

River Ranch offers you good recreation for children. They have a zip line, rock wall, archery, fishing, etc. There is a restaurant on site that is okay. We take our granddaughters there and they enjoy all that is offered in the way of recreation. However, almost all the activities come with a cost, so it can be pricey to stay here. - har-fl

Love the "old Florida setting" of this camping ground. Our children enjoyed horseback riding as well as the activities. There are nice biking trails for the family to enjoy along with our picnics. Great place to stay. - SanAntonTravelers

I rated this campground a 9, I would have rated it a 10 if the camp store wasn't so expensive. We bought a quart of milk at $5.00 and 2 pastries at $4.50 each. The biggest problem was that the pastries were old and we couldn't even eat them.
Now for the park.
We were on the water in space 448. The reason they gave us that spot is because they said it had shade. It did not. 449 had the shade. The grounds are immaculate. All RV spots are individually owned, so each spot can and will have different amenities. The RVs share the property with Westgate timeshares. They can't use the RV amenities and we can't use theirs. Everything that Westgate offers has a cost such as the rodeo, the entertainment areas; miniature golf and so forth. They have a petting zoo which is free. The workers at the petting zoo really take pride in the animals. When I talked to the 2 guys that were working it you could tell that they really wanted to be there. The pony ride was $5.00 per child and it was a really long ride. 3 of my kids did archery and that was $8.00. The rodeo was $17 per adult and $9 per child. We enjoyed ourselves very much. There had to be 500 people there. The performers were very talented. They had barrel races, bull riding, and horse skills. The kids participated in the calf scramble, which was hysterical.
The sites on the water have a pier at each spot. we had a porch swing. There is a separation from each space by foliage. You don't feel like you're on top of each other.
The RV spots that were not on the water seemed like you were in a forest. The trees were so old and there was Spanish moss hanging from them.
The 2 pools and hot tubs that are available to us seemed to be adequate, however the park wasn't very crowded.
The bathrooms and 3 laundry rooms were very clean.
The closest town is almost an hour away, so make sure you have everything you need before getting there.
Most of the people there are owners and everyone was friendly. - sflabrkr

This an older park that is well maintained. Site were a bit close, we were unable to put our awning out, but we were in the overnight sites and the other sites look larger. Be careful some of the turns are tight put if you watch what you're doing not a problem. Power was good, water was 42psi, Wi-Fi was good. No cable but we got 88 air channels. The real positive thing is the owner goes out of his way to give you a warm friendly welcome. I marked this campground up one just because of him. - Traveler II

Very clean and quiet. People are friendly. Lots of planned activities, shuffleboard, pickle ball, pool, horseshoes. Hookups are in a good location. Don't let the number of park models dissuade you. Roads are all paved as are most of the sites. Some of the are not double concrete and the unit is parked on the grass with a nice concrete patio/driveway. The sites are some of the most spacious we've seen. Will return in a heartbeat. - User3025

This is such a nice park, every one made us feel right at home, both residence and staff. Convenient to town, very quiet, paved streets, concrete pads. There is a pool, a lake with a gazebo, and many activities. Many ride bikes and walk their dogs. We will certainly go back. - esta34950

We were backed up against a fence that was covering up a dried up pond and one space away was a sewage processing area that made noise on and off all night while doing it's thing...a few days it created a nasty smell....our concrete pad was very old, covered in black spots from age, and shorter (our RV is 40ft) making the front end of the RV stick out in the grass area...we tracked in lots of sand even with rugs down. The site did have a new small picnic table on it. The overall of the campground is good though. The roads are paved, it was very pet friendly and the folks that reside there and visit there are wonderful....the office staff were also superb. There are a lot of activities going on through the week and some are posted on a sign as you enter the park. The location of the park is good and away from the road. We would go back.... - Lovingretirement16

Older park but a lot of upgrades and improvements going on. Lots of nature, birds, gators and turtles. Our site was large and had a nice view of a pond. 40' RV fit fine. Office was very pleasant. - Racer1
Feb 2012 - $32.00
We have camped here several times and have always enjoyed the friendly campers and nice heated pool. We thought that the rest of the park would improve with the new ownership, but it has not happened. Still old park models, little grass, dead plants, buildings in marginal repair. Ponds have dried up, concrete cracked and crumbling on roads. Picnic table was unusable. Things seemed to be happening at the rec. hall, but we were never given a calendar of events, nor was one evident anywhere. Prices have increased, with no extra services. Office staff not very friendly. Probably will not be returning. - Vernadene

This campground is very old with a lot of deferred maintenance. The front area is literally a junk yard with machinery, parts and a variety of old rusted out equipment. The north part has some wide open sites large enough for a big rig, the others are very small. Initially we had planned on staying a few weeks, but quickly changed our plans due to the conditions. Do not let their website fool you. And their rates are pretty high for a park with nothing. - The DnD Adventure

Fair warning: if you want your RV to be infested with ants, including fire ants, this is the place. We paid up front for a week but could not stay the entire time because this place is infested with ants. The owners do not take proper care to keep this problem under control. We had to spend $50 in pesticides to get rid of the 3 species of ants that overran our RV and it took an extra couple of days AFTER we left to finish killing off the ants that invaded our home because of this park. Place looked ok on the surface when we arrived. Further looks showed that the bathrooms floors were not cleaned the entire time we were here. There is no AC in the bathrooms, which has two tiny windows that were no adequate to cool the area. There are bugs in the bathrooms. The laundry room doors are left open 24 hours a day with no AC, so it's hot, muggy and full of flying, biting bugs. Laundry room, bathrooms and the "Fellowship Hall" all part of the same building but only the "Fellowship" area had air conditioning. We were not invited to use this area at all. I was lied to by the staff. When we complained about the ant problem, I was told by a staff member that, "Everyone in the park has this problem every time it rains." When we left the park early, I was told by the owner that no-one else had this problem and the owner suggested that perhaps we brought the ants with us? (Not the case and I was offended at the suggestion and by the owner's uncaring attitude.) We were refunded the amount of time we did not stay with them (1 night). Overpriced compared to other parks in the area and our cost in pesticides to fix Merry D's ant problem made this place even more expensive. I cannot recommend this place at all. If I could give a negative star rating I would. - conniecc

This is a very old campsite with many permanent and older residents/units. There is little if any apparent control over clutter - many old units have junk under/around. Nevertheless, it is quiet (seniors sleep!) and the sites are large. If you are looking for a cheap place to hang your hat while you visit Disney then consider this place - less then 30 minutes away and no Orlando traffic. Do not expect good Wi-Fi service if you cannot see the laundry area - like many RV sites the owners advertise Wi-Fi on site but that is nonsense. A $75 router is not Wi-Fi on-site! Our cable TV did not work and the owners could have cared less. We don't watch much so that was not a problem but if you do, then take care because you too might get stung. Would we return? No - I think we would try to find an other place that is equally inexpensive - this cannot be the only one. - Aftica

Our rate is based on a monthly stay. We were in the area checking out wintering locations. This park is tops in the area. Pool is excellent size and the whole place is paved except the actual lot you park on is gravel. There is a paved patio and driveway to each site though. Mangers were very nice and accommodating. They have a pot luck monthly that the campground supplies Hamburgers and Hotdogs for. Laundry room is the largest we have seen. 10 Miles either direction you are in a major area with lots of stores and restaurants. Campground is 50% full time residents but there sites are beautiful and kept up. They also made us feel right at home and were not standoffish at all. We will definitely be returning as we made winter reservation for next year. - Lifetraveler

I stayed here for a week while visiting family in the area. All of the facilities were neat & clean and were obviously well-maintained. The pool was a refreshing retreat for some exercising and cooling off after a long, hot day. My space was large and level, with a clean concrete patio and full hook-ups (50-amp). There was plenty of space between my site and my neighbor. Everyone I met was friendly and happy. I had such a nice time here that I am considering spending a few months here this winter. I recommend this park. - bcbounders

We have stayed in the park for the last few years and in my opinion there have been improvements made constantly. The new clubhouse is excellent which includes an exercise room, new restrooms and showers which are very clean. We stayed in a motorhome and will return again. My only concern was the cold pool but and I think it has finally been repaired. A very clean park and I would recommend it for a long or short stay. - Donbren
