Description of RV park on website is overly-exaggerated. Park does have a security gate - being that it does have a lot of permanent residents. It has about 30 sites that are reserved for temporary visitors. You have to check in at the convenience store located on the campground. Staff is friendly. Store is somewhat rundown. Our site was grassy, and after the rains got very muddy. Cable did not work. The cap on the sewer line was covered in tree and grass debris which leads me to believe that not too many temporary visitors come this way. The comfort station located close to our site was located in a very old building and not very clean. We stayed for 3 days during the 4th of July weekend. The park does have a nice large pool and offered activities for the kids. - JoelRamirez

We have been staying at this park for years since 1974. The park does need some improvements and the management is trying to shape it up. The front gate people do a good job of security. We have not had any problems with theft of anything. Its a nice place to stay for the winter and very reasonable. - LarryD

Beautiful park with shady campsites, mature oaks, and lots of wildlife. The park seems to be well maintained and the spring was awesome! Not having a sewer hookup was a minor downfall, but the difficult nature of their check-in process is my biggest complaint. Because of the long line to get into the park, they make RVers pull into a parking lot that does not have a good turning radius especially with a toad. Despite this, we can't wait for our next stay here! - TinyLivingRVer

Beautiful, heavily wooded park with springs approximately 1/2 mile away. Located in and upscale suburban setting away from heavy traffic and noise. Beautiful and heavily wooded. Great retreat from civilization, but close enough for commuting. - Scenic Cruiser

One of the few state parks we found that could accommodate our 42' 5th wheel, and had full hook-ups. We had a back in site but were able to maneuver in with enough room for our truck to fit. Park and site was nice and wooded. Site was shaded with trees. The firepit also was used as a BBQ. Tubing within the park. Bring your own tubes and save on renting. Bring chairs/blanket to sit after tubing and a cooler for food/drinks. They also had a snack bar. We were able to put our own kayak in for free. They also rent kayaks and paddleboards. Nice park. I would definitely stay here again. - ThisIsHowWeRoll

We paid extra for a river site because we were told we could fish from the bank. The river sites are not in the front section, which appears to be for more short term RVers. The roads in the section to which we were led were narrow and a bit difficult to maneuver. Maintenance men had to trim some trees so that we could get to our spot and came back the next day to trim trees along the exit road. After setting up, we discovered that the gate leading to the dock was locked with a no fishing sign attached. I suppose we could have walked down to the river bank, but fishing from there would not have been possible because of the trees and mucky bank. We asked in the office about fishing and were told that we would have to go to other parts of the campground to fish. On the day we left, I had to walk in front of the motorhome so that I could be sure my husband could get past the cars and trucks parked along the road. The office staff and the full-timers were all very nice and the restaurant was good but we will not return. - dickens

We were here for 5 months and have a very mixed feeling about this park. Many good things such as friendly staff, night and weekend security, large trees, paved roads and very level sites. Also the cable TV was great and way more than basic. The people were friendly except did not welcome snowbirds to participate in activities. Most all park is full time residents,so everything is set up for them. Other RV'ers only stay a short time and not the whole season like we did. The Wi-Fi is good but must pay to use.The rate is the monthly rate then you must add eletric usage.To give you the overall attitude of the park they even charge you 50 cents for a parking sticker. This you're told after you have checked in and they want that in cash. It's not the money; it's the idea of it! The restrooms and showers were cleaned daily, however way overdue for a makeover. - gpafrog

This is a nice location. The park is on the St. Johns River. It has boats to rent , a launch ramp, and a pretty decent restaurant on the premises. The pool is the largest I've ever seen. It is fully enclosed and nicely maintained. It is an old park, pretty well maintained. It is popular with "snowbirds who return year after year. Most everyone knows everyone else, and they are a friendly bunch. The sites are very tight. They have used every available inch of space, and sites a very close together. There are "super" sites which is what I took on this visit. About the only thing "super" is the price - $650.00 per month. A three month stay gets you a $100.00 discount. The "super" sites are wedged in all over the park. They take a $200.00 "deposit" for electricity which is absurd! This is a gimmick to hold your money for a month or longer and collect the interest. The staff are helpful and friendly. If I do stay here again, I won't take a "super" site. Not worth it! - hankster36

Very nice well maintained park and friendly staff. Currently has workout area, well stocked library and clean pool. Many full time resident so I'd recommend reservations especially during busy winter season. Close to shopping, movies and restaurants. - amimjs

A lot of full-timers in this park. And, many of them need to clean up their places! Many are very, very old and in disrepair.
The office person was very friendly and professional.
We had no problems. Our site was convenient, although not very big.
Most have nice concrete patios.
It is not exactly pet friendly. They allow dogs, but do not have a fenced dog park. And, they expect you to go out in the dirt and mud in the front of the park near the highway to walk your dog!!
Most dog owners are responsible...perhaps the poop that is found sometimes...is from the bears!
Bears appear often at night in this park, although no one mentioned any issues other than they get into garbage sometimes.
I personally enjoy walking my dog on the paved roads throughout a campground.
It has a laundry room and a swimming pool and community room. I discovered a nice building hidden in a storage area that has work-out equipment...don't know who gets to use it. - Umbrella

Needed to find something near Orlando area without paying some big dollars during high season. This was adequate. Not the prettiest place, had lots of long term residents. Nice staff and office help. Might stay here again if we need to see our friends in the area. - rwarner22

The nicest and most helpful staff I have ever met! Very clean sites and pool area. The dog park us very spacious. Lots of planned activities. spacious grass sites with picnic table. the campground is open to the public until 5, but there is a lot of supervision - Dawlhouse

We are here for Dec & Jan for our 1st visit. Took advantage of the monthly rates which saved us about 50% over the discounted nightly rate above. This family owned and operated facility is well maintained and improving. The pool, grounds, clubhouses, store, and especially laundry facilities are immaculately kept. Love the large modern machines that offer the convenience of plastic money if you have no quarters! ~ There are scheduled activities: games, dances, craft classes, toy car races, and fabulous food events including dinners, potluck, and ice cream social events. The sites are large, level, and most have new concrete patio slabs. The swimming lagoon and fountain are lovely. Not crazy about the sulfur spring aroma, but it won't keep us from coming back. - Jane and Bob Fulltimer

Very nice park. We stayed in a space in the quiet section of the resort. Friendly helpful staff. Other RV's, some transient and others permanent. Restrooms, showers and laundry were clean. One restroom and shower facility appeared to be fairly new. The Roads are paved however they are narrow. - cudntherd

Very nice people. Needed a place to stay before I went to Disney, and I called after hours. The owner told me to come on and told me where to park. I have a 31 footer with jeep being flat towed. Site would have been level except I didn't want to unhook. Clean restrooms and owners even woke up early so that we could get an early start. - Tomwillis

Quiet, family owned park with plenty of shade. Interior roads are narrow with tight turns and low hanging tree limbs. The park is a maze of roadways with some roads as sites and some sites as roads. Be sure to get an escort to your site. Hosts are friendly and accommodating . Utilities are in good working order but are in inconvenient locations. They have a restaurant on location for daily breakfasts that was decent. The pool was nice but needs to be cleaned. Bathrooms were old but clean. The park is not big rig friendly or multiple slide friendly. The park has a lot of potential. We would come here again. - Mamaluca

Rate reflects Passport America rate. Cons:roads in the campground are narrow and tight, the pool was not cleaned and the wifi was erratic. However, folks were friendly, the sites are reasonably level and shady. We spent a week, went to a couple of ice cream socials and had interesting conversations with the owner, Lewis. Clean up the leaves and clean the pool and I would give it an 8. It is a campground, not an RV resort. - kcook

At the Southeastern edge of the Ocala National Forest, just outside the community of Paisley, Florida this is a well run campground. The camp host is friendly and informative. Delivery of firewood bundles to your site upon purchase, and ice is available for sale at the gatehouse. The hot showers are clean occasionally has some sand from people coming from the beach at the lake and can't rinse the floor after themselves. Very nice dish washing sink and counter between bathrooms. Water throughout the park between most sites. A few sites have water/electric. for RV'ers. The sites are spacious and shady with a large high canopy of oaks and pines. We even had an orange tree on our site with fruit. Roads are paved as are driveways to site to parking bumper. We came in on motorcycles, 2 tents 3 adults and 1 child and had a nice weekend. Quite a few other motorcycles here also tent camping. Easy ride to Daytona for end of bike week or ride through the forest rural roads. One family group adjacent was rather loud and obnoxious the first night, however 2nd night was on close watch to keep it down which they did. Voices carry easily in the quiet of the night through the trees. Beautiful park, everyone was pretty friendly and lots of families with kids. Nice beach and lake, not huge but nice. I would recommend keeping to the high side of the park as you get closer to the lake there is a definite down hill and if one of our Florida thundershowers comes through, could see how those would be in the path of the runoff. We were on site #5. We'll definitely go here again. - Full-timers

As Florida residents living in overpopulated South Florida, we love to get out of town and get back to nature. Clearwater Lake is by far our favorite place to go. Every site is shaded and private. The campground in quiet and the camp hosts are nice. There is a lovely 1/2 mile walk around the lake. It is also close to other great local natural attractions. - JamieCamper

This is a NFS campground with no hook-ups but it does have flush toilets and some open air showers. We were told that some of the showers have hot water but we did not try them. The sites were plenty deep enough for our 30 ft class A and very roomy overall although the paved parking pad is fairly narrow (Trailer Life called the sites 8 x 55 and that's pretty close if you just consider the paved part). Most of the sites are somewhat sloped front to back (or back to front). A few are pretty close to the water with nice views but you can't necessarily get to the water from the site. Staff friendly and organized at check-in, they do a great job of keeping the park and the sites raked and tidy. We stayed over President's Day weekend and the campground was full but did not feel too cramped. Many, many, many families with children enjoyed the small but nice lake and beach area. Nice campground, easy to get to from Hwy 42 with decent roads throughout. Only real negative is that the dump station was very awkward to get to if you happen to be camping in the loop closest to the day use area (sites 1-23); many fresh water spigots were available throughout the campground. - mahaffee

Very secluded wooded sites. Had a pretty level gravel base. Sites were not very large but plenty of privacy bEcause of the trees between sites. There was plenty is seperate parking adjacent to the sites. Convenient to Publix and restaurants within 5 he Breakfast Club is particularly good. Showers were clean and spacious although the there was no private changing area. There were about 6 peacocks roaming the grounds, pretty cool. Had good cell service, acceptable satellite and about 60 OTA channels. - Crottys

This is our 3rd time staying at this park. It's a secure place with locked gates in the evening, and peacocks roam freely during the day. Most sites are spacious with some foliage between so you may not notice your neighbor as much. The trees can make navigating a little tight if your unit is larger than 32 ft. The bathhouses are the only thing that might disappoint - they are extremely basic without any bench to place your things except outside the curtain stall, and there's only enough hot water for one person, so plan accordingly. We enjoy staying here as it feels more secluded and private. The staff are friendly and we met the park supervisor who is very nice and can tell you when the next rocket launch will be at Kennedy Space Center. Each site has a paved patio with picnic table and fire ring - firewood is provided for a great deal, though they ran out this visit due to their wood splitter needing maintenance. We got perfect Verizon 4G-LTE data signal here, but cell service was spotty with 1-2 bars, possibly due to the heavier tree cover at our site. We plan to come back next year. - Sara C.

The staff are very friendly and they routinely clean up sites and do security checks. The gate is locked after park hours, but campers receive an access code. There is a 14-day max limit and you can only reserve 45 days in advance, although there is no deposit required. Sites are spaced nicely apart with some separated by foliage, making them feel private. Sites are concrete pads with a picnic table & firepit provided. Firewood is provided here as well for a great deal. There are 2 bath houses but located in the same general area, so only southeast sites are close-by without much hiking. It was pretty quiet during our stay, maybe half or less of the sites were filled on weekends. I was eaten up by mosquitoes my first night, ants are abundant but didn't bother us, and a few peacocks roam freely around the park, which is a nice site. Watch out for the huge orbital spiders here, we saw 3. The one-way road through the campground is narrow and windy, so I wouldn't recommend big-rigs here. We could tell that the owner has great attention to detail, like adding an extended concrete pad to the road when exiting the dump station because of a tree making the turn difficult. No sites have sewer. I work online, so Verizon coverage is important to me - had reliable cell coverage and LTE data here. No wifi is available. - Sara C.

Very clean park, well maintained. Very narrow road but spacious sites for RV's. Park attendant was superb. - Scenic Cruiser
Jun 2016 - $23.00
This park has a lot to offer: Mature oak trees and pines, windy roads, a walking trail along the lake, multiple playgrounds for the kids. We were able to park our 38' motorhome and be fully hooked up and leveled within just a few minutes. Driving out was harder as the road is very windy, but we made it out just fine! Making a reservation could've been easier if we were able to do it online, but the phone call was easy enough. Overall, we had a very peaceful, enjoyable stay and would park here again! - TinyLivingRVer

What a GEM! Who would have thought that in downtown Orlando there would be a small lake with 36 RV sites? We stayed here while visiting Universal Studios - only 10 minutes away!! Half are full hookups, the remainder only water and electricity, but also has a dump station. No cable, but several on air stations available if you don't have satellite. Some sites fully shaded, most partial. Sites are concrete, but NOT level. In fact, our site had a foot of fall making leveling the coach a challenge. But, that's the only issue - and a small issue when valuing the benefit of the location. Highly recommend this park surrounded by city. - GlobeTrotterRV3

This campground is no longer here. It is now a subdivision and needs to be removed from this list. - Starfire5

This park is in the process of being sold to a developer and will be closed in the next few weeks. Although a review is probably not necessary, I'll include some of the major issues. Maintenance was pretty much non-existent due to the sale. Water pressure was very low, we had to run our pump to keep the pressure up to an acceptable level. The 50-amp electrical service was running at about 109 volts, too low for RVs like ours. Bathrooms were old and not maintained, not cleaned regularly either. The people here were very nice, but since they were being forced to move there was a depressed mood as the moving trucks came in every day. Do not plan to stay here during the next month or so if you want to relax or have a good experience. We reserved many months ago before the sale went through and did not know what we were getting into. - LowesTravels

We have stayed in this park on several occasions and found the staff very friendly and helpful. There have been no issues with theft as mentioned in previous reviews and we felt perfectly safe here. The pool area is very nice. The laundry facility is very neat and clean. The spaces are about 30 feet wide, which we felt was adequate. The park does have a lot of permanent residents in it and it is not close to Disney, but is great for a few days relaxation when passing through the area. We would recommend this park and will stay here again. - DeeRon
