Came for 4, stayed for 6 nights at this tranquil, well maintained park. Most sites are long term but the residents are quiet and friendly. The gals in the office could not have been nicer! The area is beautiful, I got some gorgeous sunset photos! WiFi was okay, kind of petered out in the weekends. Bathhouse needs an update, but wasn't scary!! May go back for long term!! - Sunneee

This campground is mainly for snowbirds who have permanent sites. They do have a few sites available for overnight campers but the sites are at the entrance to the park. The sites are not level and we could not get our rig as level as we wanted it to be. The sites are grass with a concrete slab but no table. However, this park is on Lake Tohopekaliga and the views are gorgeous. It has a boat ramp, boat rentals and air boat rides for a fee. The overnight sites do not face the lake but they do face a pond which has two alligators to keep you company. Pets are more than welcome but keep them leashed because of the alligators. We would stay here again. - Skittlez

I only stayed two days although paid two weeks in advance. It is definitely not a resort. It is a trailer/RV park. I started to stay in the electric water area because supposed to meet a camping club there the following week. Bathrooms were broken and overflowing and the ground was so soft the RV was sinking in ground. Permanent people there that have RVs just started building structures around them. Very trashy. The only other two RVs in that area that were temporary like me had owners tell me one had wood stolen from the side of the RV and the other had their chairs taken and found teenagers that lived at the RV park took them to a campfire for a loud drinking party nearby. Moved to paved site with sewer at other side of campground for the next night. I asked a neighbor if safe there after I had already set up and she told me about a ton of bad stuff that just happened in last two weeks. They rent RVs out there and have several evictions and break-ins. She said money, food, golf cart, clothes, etc. stolen. Decided to stay the night since it was late and already set up. The next morning the lock was picked to my kayak. It was only still there because I had another double lock. I packed up within an hour and headed to another campground. My son and I were scared to stay there any longer. Campground did give a refund for the rest of the time. The neighbor who told me all the bad stuff said management was angry with her for telling me all that as I was packing up. Oh, and someone followed my truck in one day. Took 5 turns and going around in circles through RV park to get rid of them. They followed us in through the exit since there is no gate there. Only a security gate on entrance side. Freaked my son and me out. Worse place I ever stayed at. - Gia H

The cost is with AAA Auto Discount. This is a nice park with lots of wildlife. Office staff is busy at times with processing the boat rides and tend to be short with customers at times. Some of the long term people at times tend to think they need to tell us short term visitors what to do, which can be irritating. The guys driving the airboats were great. I went with my 16 year old, and he enjoyed it. Nice to be away from the city hub bub. We traveled in a motor home from the Kansas City area and were here for 5 days. We would definitely return. - sergei3234

We stayed at this park for one week in lot number 37 which is a lake-front full-hookup lot. All spots had vertical cement fixtures which contained older electrical hookup panels and water spigots, with sewer hookups mounted in the ground nearby. About 2/3 of the spots were vacant and the remainder were filled with seasonal trailers that appeared to be in storage and rarely used. We only saw 3 other active campers during our stay so it was very private. The best part was the beautiful natural setting. Every spot had lots of mature shade trees with Spanish moss hanging from the branches. Wildlife was visible everywhere including cranes, herons, eagles, hawks, squirrels, turkeys, frogs, and many other critters. Several families of heron visited our site each day often walking right up to us and waiting around for a handout, and making a pleasant sound in the morning to wake us up gently. We loved being in a remote wilderness location but only 10 minutes away from main stores and 25 minutes away from major attractions. We would have given this park a 10 but there was a slight noise problem caused by the airboat tours which are launched daily from the small parking lot which doubles as a tiny lake marina. The boat tours are popular on the weekends so you hear the boats leaving every 30 minutes from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm, and then by appointment from 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm. The boats are pretty loud but further away, so they sound about the same as a lawn tractor cutting the grass next door. The noise is still audible with the windows closed and the AC on but it wasn't too bad and we got used to it after the first day. Thankfully the boat tours were less popular during the week so we did have some quiet peaceful time as well. The laundry room is older but clean and functional with each load costing $1.00 and they keep it locked when the office is closed so you have to finish laundry by 5:30 pm each day. The restroom building looked newer and well lit but we never used it. We enjoyed this park enough that we will return again some day. The boat noise is a drawback but it still beats the noise of crowded parks and lots of kids and traffic at all hours of the night which is a problem at many other parks in this area. - WileECoyote

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

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

We stayed 2 nights at Lake Kissimmee State Park and will definitely do it again as we live fairly close.
We found it to be quite enjoyable; it's off the beaten path, very large (the park itself) and has nice private camp sites with plenty of room. Most sites are compacted crushed shell and sand, very level with plenty of room for a screen room or tent plus chairs and whatever else you bring. They each have a fire ring and picnic table. Some sites (maybe 15 %) have concrete pads (I guess for Handicap access or large rigs). The bathroom/shower facilities are very close no matter what site you have and very clean.
We are bike riders and absolutely loved the hiking trails. There are 2 trails that are each 6+ mile loops with many connector trails. These loops are very well marked and they provide a nice accurate map. The Trails are mostly wide pine forest with few roots and some sandy places but very few places that might require you to get off your bike and walk it. We loved riding them! We saw many deer while out. Also, do check out the Cow Camp, it's a slice of FL history.
On weekends, the lake is awash with Airboats, so you can pretty much constantly hear them roaring in the background, but we found it to be pretty benign, kind of like having a railroad track nearby.
There is no wifi except at the "general store" and cell coverage is very spotty, but for a weekend getaway, that's perfect. - ToddAndMarge

We stayed 3 nights at this wonderfully isolated park. You will need to bring everything with you as not much is available close by. There are many hiking trails. We hiked a couple trails along with some exploring other areas. The observation tower has a great view of the lake. Fishing is allowed on the porch of the General Store. There are canoe and kayak rentals available. Check out the old Cow Camp on Saturday. We had a bobcat with 2 kittens and deer visit our campsite in the evening. Our site was under a couple big oak trees with lots of shade. We had no trouble backing our 22 ft trailer. The was some noise from air boats in the background. - Big Gator

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
Jan 2016 - $75.00
I agree with previous comments. Interior roads are good but narrow. Didn't use bath house or laundry facilities.
In addition, their published and posted rate in their office is $40.00/day. We were charged $75.00/day because of activity going on at Oceola Heritage Park. When our reservations were made we weren't told of this special upcharge. Nor were we advised at check in. Only when we paid our bill the next day.
I agree that they can charge whatever they want to for a site but advise the customer when reservations are being discussed and let the customer decide if the price is in their comfort zone. - racer0624

The park itself was clean and tidy but very tightly packed fulltime, long term and campers. The pool was large and heated. The laundry room was a good size but very busy constantly. The sites are very narrow, gravel and concrete. The staff was average, not that friendly and the wifi wasn't free. The restrooms were clean and the showers were nice. The road traffic was very loud. Don't think I'd stay here again. - kiwitravelers

Spaces were a little tight but not overly. Helpful staff. Level sites but we were in the row next to the highway and it was quite noisy at times. Amenities were clean and functional. We stayed for a fortnight and will probably stay again. - Peter McK

I have been here many since the 80's. Last year I was here for 9 months while wife was in hospital. Since I checked out in Feb 2016, there has been a rate increase of $15 a night. Website stated $55 which was acceptable. However rate was $65 and take it or leave is new office rule. They run your credit card, then have you write all your CC info on a separate form. I refused at 1st and was told we couldn't rent site if we didn't. This was also done to our friends who rented cabins. Check with your bank before giving out CC info as they keep if written down. I guess TOO many people were canceling their charges. Mostly full time residents. Ever since they changed the name, they charge more for less. Some roads were closed. most bath houses were closed. Used to be East Lake fish camp. now is Boggy Creek RV Resort (Bwa Haaaaaa.) What a joke.
There is NO Cable and NO wifi, although they will give you a password that doesn't work. This is closer to a $30 a night park. They had a water inspection from the county one day and all water was turned off. No bathrooms open in park or restaurant. They padlocked the pool the 2nd day of our stay. Same water issues. We received a notice the next morning about ILLEGAL activities going on in park. We were told to call Sheriff's Dept. if we saw anything suspicious. Time to find another park. I won't pay resort price for simple fish camp amenities. I would look for a site closer to Kissimmee and take toll roads to Orlando rather than OVERpay for this place again. - phnz1

Rate reflects monthly stay. Electric is extra charge. This is an old Florida fish camp RV Park with lots of big oaks and larger than normal lots. It's low cost for the area. Downside is noisy air boat concession on the property and it's in the flight path for Orlando airport. Management not so great but workers are nice and very helpful. - User3435
Jan 2014 - $15.00
The rate I am quoting is the monthly rate of $425, electric not included. I am enjoying my stay at this park. It is an older park that is under new management this last year, and they are fixing up the park and making it a lot nicer. If you are making a reservation, call after 2 PM. Nice size lots, old but well up-kept facilities, free cable, mail box available through local post office (on site boxes). The only drawback is it is two miles from Orlando International, and Boggy Creek air boat rides are here. So a little noisy, but still the best campground in the area. LOTS of bird life, and a very nice staff. My tire actually fell off (broke lug nuts), and the staff helped me get it fixed well enough to get it in to my spot. I can see how folks could come here and never leave. - Dave from Florida

This was my first experience in any RV park so I don't have a point of reference, but what stood out was the helpfulness of Ray, the park owner. He took us to our spot to examine it prior to escorting us down and even helping us set up.
The spot itself had some exposed tree roots but that didn't pose a problem. The spots are pretty small for a large class A such as our Outlaw, but we managed to get in and out without any trouble.
Neighbors are very friendly. We enjoyed our 3 night stay. Tremendous value with our Passport America 50% off. - Outlaw Pilots

Older park built before today's big rigs. Very tight backing into my spot. Many older trailers and permanent residents. - MikeMayNaama

We used this park as a base to go to Disney World and Universal studios. It is an older park with most guests being permanent, but all were very friendly. The spaces are very tight but the owner did an excellent job of guiding us in. The bathhouse only has one shower in each of the men's and women's, so timing is everything. - Oldbillm

Park staff extremely friendly and helpful. Didn't have a picnic table in the site we chose. Asked park staff if I could move a table from across the road. Was told no, we'll move it for you. Sewage treatment plant was behind a solid fence behind our rig but not a big deal. Lots of noise coming from the plant but has the a/c on the whole time. Could be a problem if cool weather. Lots of seasonal occupied sites. It's also a mobile home park. Not the best neighborhood but had no problems. Their was not a security gate. Roads were paved but very very narrow. 24' travel trailer and had to unhitch and move as I was blocking road. Parked next to rig. Concrete pad for patio outside of the camper. No fires allowed. - Camper Rich

Nice RV park with paved roads and wide, long and level pull thru and back in sites with grass and concrete patio. A few trees but mostly open. Most sites can get satellite signals. Good Utilities, cable tv, good antenna tv, good password protected wi-fi, good cell signal. Nice pool. Roads a little tight for big rigs, but OK. Park clean and staff friendly and helpful. Will stay there again. - Pepper Dan

After reading several negative reviews from others. I was hesitant to book this place. However, the close proximity to area attractions was the key. I am here to tell you that I was pleasantly surprised. The park changed management 2 years ago. They have evicted all of the trailer trash and have strict rules. Each site has gravel with cement pads. We were treated like royalty. Pool is clean at 85 degrees. We'll be back. - Raymarco1
