This CG seems to be transitioning to full-timers and several sections are dedicated to them. Nevertheless, we were greeted with a smile and found the facility to be just fine. Our site had a lake view and was relatively level. Others had to use plenty of blocks to get level. There is a beach and a play area for kids, as well as fenced area for dogs. Lots of shade. The restrooms and showers were clean, but getting old. WiFi, cable TV and cell service satisfactory. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Good swimming, lots of tourist. Nice staff. Silver Springs is a great place to see. About 20 minutes to Palatka and also very close to the Ocala National Forest. About 2 hours to Orlando. Wi-Fi spotty and a few tv channels but that was fine as we were there for Silver Springs. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful view of the lake and a great swim dock. Paved road and large playground for kids. They have a large pavilion for cookouts and family gatherings. Lots have level paved pads and grass. Friendly campers and staff. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Overall this was a nice park. We wanted someplace wooded and secluded but was disappointed when we arrived. The sites are small and mostly taken up by snowbirds.

Staff was friendly and site was clean. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Waldena is a large park on the far outskirts of town. The CG is a trailer park and RV park with more permanent trailers than RV sites. The trailer park is mainly occupied by snowbirds.

My site was along the main road into the park, therefore there was a lot of traffic. Sites 82 to 104 are on the main road. Due to the heavy rain the previous week the ground was soaked and I had to wash all the levelers and chocks due to the mud encased in them when I was prepping to leave.

Pros - all utilities worked fine. Wi-fi was adequate. Cable TV was all analog.

Cons - road noise from FL 40. Office is closed on Sundays. I have to assume that mosquitos are a problem most of the year due the swampy area behind the sites (the Nature Preserve on their map).

I would stay here again in a pinch. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Enjoyed our stay at Lake Waldena, we plan on returning there when we head back in to Florida after November. Hook-ups were perfect, bath house and common areas kept very clean and in good working order. Several of the long stay campers were very nice, invited my wife and I down for coffee in the club house every am. Our site was at lakeside, WiFi connection/signal was great, TV stations through campground cable was only 12 channels but we were out and about mostly visiting local Springs and kayaking. Park is close to several popular springs including Juniper, Glenn Springs and Silver Springs is just up the road. Park is nested in a nice wooded area with plenty of shade, easy to get to and not far from the city, local Walmart and places to get provisions. If your looking for a taste of old Florida Lake Waldenda is the perfect place for you. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Overall, the campground was nice. Our site was grass with a concrete patio and a tight squeeze between the patio and the sewer pipe. It rained a lot and the water permeated quickly into the ground. It has a swimming area for the lake but we didn't use it. The bathrooms were older but clean. It had a nice clubhouse with a reading room and lending library as well as a game room including two pool tables and card tables. The wifi worked fine for us. There is an outdoor pavilion with picnic tables and an out door community fire pit We stayed with a rally and used Passport America for the rate listed. There are a lot of permanent mobile homes within one section of the park, but not a problem. The staff was very helpful. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 1 month (so $408). Most staff helpful, lots uneven. No public phone access and hours for check-in not friendly for all day travelers. Office closed at 4:00 and emergency #'s listed no-one answered. Campers too close together. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I would stay here again. The park is quiet. No pool to those who find that necessary. I don't use pools so that was okay for me. I found the staff in the office to be helpful. I wouldn't miss Silver Springs Park which is close to this campground. It is a lovely park. Enjoyed the community campground. The Wi-Fi worked fine for me. TV was adequate.

I would not refer to this park as a resort. It has a ratty looking pond and swamp attached to it, and ratty looking beach. If you use Wi-Fi, this is not the place to stay. There is a note in the parks literature telling you that it is poor, but you won't know that till AFTER you check in. It is sporadic at best, Also, there should be an asterisk beside their cable TV. They only have 9 stations, all of which you could likely get from your antenna. I would not stay at this park again. You get what you pay for. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Great campgrounds. Yes, if you are staying for an extended period you might want to us a dish as they only have 12 channels and the wi-fi is weak but did work. The lake is nice, there is part of the shore that is shallow and has plants but the wild life is abundant and fun to watch. There are lots of activities and wonderful people. We will be back again next year for another month or two. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Motorhome.

Campground is very pretty, well maintained, and staff was very helpful and friendly. The lake is beautiful, however the only thing this park is lacking is a pool. If they installed a pool at this park it would rate above a "10" We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Campground was very clean and well kept. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had a fairly level back in site. The hook-ups were at the back of the site and were shared with another site directly behind ours. I had a little trouble reaching the hook-ups. The interior roads are paved as is the large parking lot at the office. We stayed for three days and did some lake fishing in the very pretty lake on which the park is situated. Be forewarned to take some cash with you for any item that you may want to purchase in the camp store. They only accept credit cards for the site rental! You must pay in cash for anything else. We observed that some of the sites closer to the lake were very un-level with one coach sitting with their front tires almost a foot off the ground! That observation and the positioning of the hook-ups were our only complaint and are the reason for the 8 instead of a 10. We would definitely stay here again as long as we got one of the sites on top of the hill where they are fairly level. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Motorhome.

This is not a bad park, but it is mostly a mobile home park with the campground being just a small part of the property. There are numerous seasonal campers parked permanently in the RV portion that are obvious winter residents. The lake is very small, (large pond actually), and it is overgrown with vegetation along the shoreline. There are also houses just across the water. The place is nice, clean, etc. It is just not a lakefront "resort" for vacationing or weekend camping. It is, however, very close to Silver Springs and shopping. We camped at Lake Waldena Resort in a Motorhome.
