Typical rv park with long term residents and rv lots mixed in. Very friendly. Office person excellent at check in. Pools nice, laundry clean. Came back a 2nd time. Lots a decent size...not crammed in. Wifi not at site. - K Willie
This is not a park that is set up for transient campers. The roads are narrow and sites very small. it must be a problem backing into a site in season. Half the park - are very nice permanents. The pool was great this time of year. Large library. Very large laundry and reasonable. No cable or wifi that I could pick up. Garbage p/u twice a week and no dumpsters. No shade. - Libby
We stayed here for a week and think it would be a great place to winter in Florida. It is a 55+ community, so really not a family camping stop. There were so many activities - bocce ball, pickle ball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, tennis, a pool, and a nature trail for riding or walking around the park. Note that this is a large "manufactured home" park with RV sites interspersed. Site spacing was fairly good, with room to park the car next to the RV with space left over. Folks were very friendly and the place was surprisingly quiet. Interior roads were paved, sites gravel and level with concrete patios and strong 50 amp power and water. Sewer, a table, and cable TV were included, but we did not use the cable. Our Verizon phones and amplified Wi-Fi data unit worked flawlessly. The park had Internet available for a fee; we did not try it. The laundry room was huge with many machines - more like a commercial facility. The bathrooms and showers were nice and clean, with benches and hooks available at the showers. Grocery stores were less than 10 minutes away, with other services only minutes further. We enjoyed this park very much and recommend it to anyone staying in the area. Our daily rate was based on a one-week stay. - LowesTravels
You camp here for the park, not the campground. This is a park where it is nice to have a bike. There is a bike path along the loop road & bike racks at the trail heads. Most trails are approx 1/2 mile long. If you only have time for a couple of trails, I recommend the ones with boardwalks like the Cypress Swamp & Fern.
All sites are not created equal and it is hard to choose from the photos on ReserveAmerica. As others have said, there is no privacy between sites. Most are partially shaded under pines, but there are some sites in full sun.
There is a new modern shower house across from sites 129-130. The sites across from this bathhouse are large, paved, ADA accessible but not limited to handicapped, but most of the RV parking area is in full sun. Many sites are pull thru, as you have to watch for all the trees. Some hookups are right next to site, others are a distance - check the notes on ReserveAmerica before booking.
This park is best in the dry cooler seasons. There were no bugs in the campground, but deer flies on the Wild Orange Grove trail where it was damp. I can see where in rainy season, there may be mosquitoes & flies. - On the Road again 11
Best part about the park is the walking trails and biking areas. The sites are extremely close and some are difficult to park in with bigger rig. Busy on the weekend. Hook ups were on the wrong side of trailer. Would not return. Supposed to have wifi, didn't work all week. - K Willie
Park has slipped a little from two years ago. WIFI no longer works and park did not seem as well maintained as it was last trip here. It may be that it was the time of year and they have had some bad weather. Also think they were short some camp host. There was nothing that would keep me from camping here again. Still a nice park for biking, hiking, and seeing the real Florida. Any store you may need with in ten miles but does not feel like it when camping here. - Wink

Nothing fancy! The photos on their website show the park several years ago. There are many travel trailers from the 1960's that have been set up permanently with rooms added on. Also there are mobile homes. Some trailers are inhabited year round rentals, some are seasonal rentals. Many trailers are left year round, but inhabited by out of state owners seasonally. There are transient trailers that come and go, but not many.
There is only one female and one male toilet/shower room which serves the pool, the club house, and any camper without facilities. The toilets are not adequate for the quantity of people using them. EVERY concrete pad on each site is broken and uneven. Some are unsafe! I recommend camping here only if you have toilet and bath facilities inside your RV. - R V Camper
Highlands Wheel Estates is a old classic, Florida mobile home park/RV park. The management team are excellent hosts with a great knowledge of the Sebring area. Although old, the park is very clean, the pool is great, and the sites are fairly big. Some sites have shade. There are lots of activities for residents. Laundry room is clean and prices are very reasonable. There is a roomy clubhouse with kitchen. Many sites are occupied year round and the park is full during the winter season. Our rate was based on Passport America. Sebring has every type of store you can ask for, including 2 RV/camping stores a little north of town on U.S. 27. We are here for 2 weeks and will be back for even longer next time - thmakin
Stayed a week here in 2009 with Passport America discount, but this time decided to stay a whole month. Wrong move! People are friendly, but the management leaves a lot to be desired! Lost our names to get propane for our coach, almost ran out of gas because of it, and then made it out like it was our fault. They tried to charge us more for our electric than we were supposed to pay. They tried to make us pay for the people that were parked there before us. Make sure to write down your numbers for your electric use. The management is not very customer friendly at all! We also were put up front along the wall, and the traffic all day and night was pretty loud. Will not stay there again, will find another park. We came with friends, and they will not be back next year either, neither will the people that parked next to us. We heard a lot of bad reviews. Hope they get new management soon! - GMP
This is a Passport America campground and our stated rate reflects that. Although the campground has 180 sites, only about 10 are for short term rentals. Many of the sites have broken facilities. We had to have water/sewer from one site and electrical from another. Many of the permanent sites are pretty ratty looking. It is on a large lake, but the permanent people have this locked up. Pool and rec room are nice. WiFi (free) was very weak, but I was able to use it as I had an antenna. I got no service without it. There were no showers that we could find. There was a dog barking and loud talking and music well into the night. We go this way on a regular basis, but will not be stopping here again. - Florida Native
Friendly park close to all interests. Spent a month. The sites were level, the amenities such as the pool and shuffleboard area were in good condition. Laundry, bath and shower rooms were well maintained. The park has many activities such as shuffleboard, Bingo and cards. Field trips, potlucks and other activities are well organized. This park is located near Highland Hammock State park which is a wonderful CCC park. Sebring has everything you would need other than Club stores. Sebring is amongst citrus groves. Plenty of Fresh water lakes for great fishing. Shooting ranges in nearby towns. - Dave's Wife
The kids loved the hiking trails. One day was spent in The Gulfat Venice Beach, worth the 2+ hour trip. The gate is locked at night and the rangers run a tight ship. We just showed up and they allowed us to drive around an pick a spot. Many spots are tight for larger campers. Bring bug spray. - Crop Guy
It's mostly a senior citizen park, beautifully kept...and everyone was real friendly. They
have a few sites for travelers and they honor the Good Sam discount. - Motorhome Madness
Once upon a time this park was at the top of the game. Now you find brown dried up grass, no shade, little vegetation and the long term sites have uneven and frequently rutted sites. Park maintenance seems to have never used any device to make sure sites are level length to length and side to side. Short term sites have these silly narrow concrete strips on which to park your tires but then your jacks slide into soft ground. The impression is that owners are milking this cash cow and not doing a whole lot to upgrade the park to what customers now expect. No Wi-Fi, no basic cable. On a positive note people are friendly, RV club is super, and clubhouse is very nice. So much potential so little effort. - j&k
The Park is rated by Woodall's as a 5 star resort, which I believe is outdated. The resort is resting on it's laurels! The sites are not as portrayed on their web site- landscaped with privacy, only the super sites which are rented for 6 month periods are this way. The others are large sites out in the open on dried up crunchy brown grass. The utilities are at best 12" off the ground which is not conducive to the age group the park caters too. Not to mention many are in shoddy condition. Other then being large the sites are nothing special. Many have only a concrete patio. The Outback laundry facilities are dated. The resorts laundry room is better tho the A/C units need reinstalled & the room needs cleaned daily instead of weekly. The pool lounge chairs need cleaned. The resort has many activities to enjoy. The people (residents) are the biggest asset of the resort. Everyone is very nice & welcoming & encourage you to enjoy yourself & join in. The resort grounds are beautiful & green while the Outback section seems to have little attention paid to it aesthetically. Large dogs seem to be discriminated against. Nice place but not living up entirely to 5 stars! - madeforcomfort
This is our second time here. They have a really huge and beautiful location. Office staff very helpful. Large sites and concrete patio's. They have no dial up location and no wireless. To get on the net you must join the computer club at $15 a month and use there connection. That's a bit steep for overnight folks. There were many empty sites even though it was the SEASON. - Libby
Rate is based on three month stay. This park is in a great quiet location just far enough from US 27. Shopping is close, and four of the several golf courses in the area are close by. The wonderful bike path and state park are just down the street. The management is very good and the residents are friendly. Many activities are available for an enjoyable stay. Each RV spot has good utilities and a concrete pad. Electric rates seem reasonable and propane is available on site. Aesthetically, the permanent trailers are very nice. The RV section could be better looking, but they do the job. For that reason I did not give this park a 10. We will stay again as the price was right. - exceltraveler
Cost is based on a 2 month stay. We were there January and February. We had planned to be there 3 months. People were very friendly, water and electric were good. HOWEVER, wifi is so bad we were frequently able to even download our email and we were right next to the booster antenna. We finally paid Comcast for a hookup. Be aware that the 3 month discount rate will not be given up front. You pay the full rate the first 2 months and the pay the difference the last month. If you elect to leave early, as we did, you won't get the 2 month discount and they won't want to apply the $100 deposit you originally sent. The sites are NOT spacious as advertised and while level, your tires will sink in the sand on one side. Access to the sites are narrow and there is little room to park your tow vehicle/toad. We won't stay there again. - kcook
Stayed here for 3 days on a tour of different FL RV parks to see where we might want to stay for a longer period in the future. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites were pretty tight, but sites we saw had cement pads with sand/grass RV parking. We had some difficulty getting into our site due to the tightness and vehicles parked nearby. There are a good number of mobile homes in the park, but the RV area is separate from them, although they do share the clubhouse activites (which there were plenty of). The park residents we interacted with were very friendly to us even though we were there for such a short time. We did not see any children anywhere within the park and there weren't any playground areas. They had a great lending library, an area where puzzles were being worked on, a movie night, and other activies one could take part in. We would stay here again, but only for a stopover rather than weeks or months. - Parrothead Mike
