40 Parks near Sorrento, Florida
Jul 2016 - $40.00
We stayed here for 4 nights while having service done at La Mesa which is about 15 minute drive.
The resort is huge. Looks like 800 spots. Quite a few full time residents. It is located on a small residential road that is quite narrow. Fortunately, traffic is light but passing another RV on this road can be tense. Spots were back in only, although it appeared that pull-throughs were available but booked. Sites are very wide and all grass. Our site was sloped but we were able to level without blocks. Too short to park our Jeep easily, but wide enough we pulled in parallel to the road and as close to the front of our RV as we could get.
The swimming pond and aquifer is impressive! Other resort amenities were decent. We had permanent neighbors on both sides of us but never saw either one. I think many people leave campers here and use them on the weekends. No trees so we were able to use our dish without issue.
There are interesting walking paths, canoes and kayaks for rent, and of course the huge swimming area. Plenty to keep a family occupied. Which is a plus since there are no other services near the resort (restaurants, shopping, fuel).
WiFi was essentially non-existent. There were a few free hotspots but we couldn't get them to work and the resort is quick to point out the availability of paid WiFi. AT&T signal is almost zero here. Verizon works fine.
We would stay here again. - Bryanmsi

Attended a rally. Catering was great food. Concrete pads for picnic table a little high above the grass site for the RV. Sulfur smell from the natural water spring was strong.
Staff very helpful. - Gesmone1

We had site #13 and have been here multiple times. Really like the woodsy feel and closeness of the camping area to the tubing area. Campground had noisy people next to us this time. People using loud voices until very early in the morning, not drunk (no alcohol allowed in park, they WILL check) just noisy. It rained at the start of our stay and there was some standing water in a few sites which breeds mosquitos here. Park was very crowded on weekend but quiet during week. Tube run is great and cold. Lots of lifeguards for safety, if you are not acting in a family friendly way you WILL be asked to leave. Park closes from 10a-3p on weekends because of crowding, so get here early or come late. Campers checking in must be IN sites before park closes for night. No late arrivals. - FL Camper

We were in site #13.This is our 4th visit check out reviews on 8/08, 6/09, and 9/10 for full info. We love this park even though the campground is older. It is a short walk to the springs to cool off and there is peace and quiet here. No alcohol or rude behavior is tolerated. I even saw some loud mouthed kids at the springs get their entire family ejected for loud cursing. This is a very family friendly park where they don't put up with rule breakers! The newest thing they have added is the bear proof trash cans in the campground. We saw a young bear checking every trash can in the picnic area this visit. Park is patrolled often by sheriff deputies. The tubing is great and as a camper you can walk the spring trail after the park closes and see lots of wildlife come out. Our site was HUGE and next to the walkway. Lots of shade and they also sell firewood for campers now. Apopka is close by with many stores if you forget anything. Best value in Central FL in our book. - FL Camper

We camped in site #8. Very shady with w/e, fire ring/grill combo, picnic table on a concrete slab. Sites are long enough for the longest RV's. We did have a problem with the power going out, but it was rectified quickly with the ranger. This our 3rd time camping here and we still really like this campground. It is quiet, but close to the river where the tubing is. Park is not crowded during the week but does get full on weekends. We saw deer on a hike, turkeys, raccoons, and a bear was sighted in the campground. - FL Camper

This Pseudo-RV campground is located at the Mt. Dora Renninger's Antique Market. They have 3 antique extravaganzas during the year as well as other special events. I am not sure if they offer RV sites during other events, but they do during the extravaganzas. The have electric hook-up and "Shared" water, which means you need to bring a splitter, but they do have some if you need or your neighbor might already have one in use. They have a campground manager who is not too bad at making sure that everyone finds their way to their site and fixes problems should they arise. Some of the sites are close, but they seem to have plenty of room in some of the other areas in the back. Most of the sites are shaded with large oak trees. There are no regular bathrooms in the RV area, but they did have trash cans and porta-potties. There is no sewage hook-ups but they do have a free dump station. The sites are close walking distance to the event grounds and was very nice to stay and go all three days to the antique extravaganza. When I made reservations they said that it was a three night minimum and since it was about $60 for Thursday, Friday & Saturday night and could stay in place until Sunday evening, I didn't mind the 3 day min..it is a good deal even if you only needed 2 nights. Again I don't know what other times of the year that they allow camping, but you can call the main office to find out. - MPD334

We stayed during Easter weekend. This was our second trip. We have a 40ft DP with a car. The pull through site offered plenty of space. Our site had a table, bbq, chairs etc. We didn't have a noise issue as we were in the middle of the park. There is an airport next to the campsite. Planes came in and out but noise was very minimal.
What impressed me the most was the staff. The woman at the front went out of her way to juggle sites so our last minute booking could met and we could get a pull through. The workers cruise around all day in the golf carts cleaning and picking up trash.
This is one of our favorite locations when we are in the area. It is close to Mt. Dora, Home Depot, Camping World and only a half hour to Disney. - sjrmathis

Nice park outside Orlando. We been two weeks here while visiting Orlando. Really close to Florida toll roads which gave us quick access to attractions in Orlando without being packed into rv spaces.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Great laundry facilties, close to grocery stores.
Rates were much cheaper than those close to Orlando. - Tumblewood

We camped in a motorhome while visiting Mt. Dora. The campground was nice in that with a big rig we could basically make the turns and the pull thru site was ample to accommodate our tow vehicle. Concrete patio and nice swing/glider and grill. The pad for the rv was gravel. They had a nice dog park fenced in. We didn't use the pool or showers but they really keep the areas nicely cleaned up and maintained. My real complaint was that we were right on a very busy highway which was extremely noisy. You could hear a clickety clack sound for every car. Of course this was not the fault of the campground but it was disturbing and there was an airport close by. I guess I will check these concerns next time I pick a campground. There was also a funny chemical smell for part of the time as this is in an industrial area. Too bad they can't pick it up and move it to one of the pretty lakes in the area. I guess these two factors would prevent me from staying here again. Nice people though. - slj

A really special experience. Great walking trails, very much a nature park. Arrived without reservations but lucked out...a space.
Really nice trails for walking, wooden walkways through the park.....great place. Space was ample for even large motor homes, strictly back-in though; no pull through that I could see. Water and electric at site, dump station on the way out.
A rural small park that may not suit all, but was a nice change for us. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. - Moose42

Very small 15 site county park campground. Sites are all under dense tree cover and the park is very lush and beautiful. Many sites are right on the water, but none of them are far from the water. First come, first served site reservation. Water and 50 amp electric hookups with an on-site dump station. Site was level and well maintained. It's a county park, so you're dealing with park rangers, not RV park owners. I would definitely go back again, but I'll take more mosquito defense. - Tri14Multisport

This is a small county park, but located between two lakes. We had to pay the no-discount price of $23 for not being seniors or county residents. It is a secure area with the park staff making rounds every hour, and coded keypad gates after hours. You can get 25 pieces of firewood for $10, a great deal. Most of the campsites have a waterfront view. The pads are concrete and flat. All sites have a patio with picnic table, BBQ grill, and fire pit with benches. The sites themselves have guardrails with reflective dots on the ends so you could even park at night. The bathhouse was clean and they even put up a rack of magazines and book exchange station. The shower stalls were clean. Pets are allowed here on a leash. The tall trees provide a lot of shade. We had no problem receiving Verizon LTE data coverage, which is a must for us to work online. This is a well-taken care of park and we loved it. The reservation system is to book your date of stay only, then it's first-come first-serve when you arrive, whatever site is available. We were able to take our pick arriving on Sunday after the weekend campers left. Check-out is comfortably at 2pm. We will definitely come back. - Sara C.

Campground is clean and not very packed with campers. Spaces seem to be spread out. Weekends during the summer are very, very busy at the springs. They do close the gate to day people when the spring in considered full. Be mindful of wild life, especially bears. Walking or biking to the springs from the site is about 2 miles, would recommend driving, if you can find a spot to park. - Florida360

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

Very tidy and well maintained RV park in Belen Eustis and the lovely Mount Dora. Extremely welcoming and friendly manager and owners too - who dropped off local newspapers daily to me (unasked) as they knew I was a 'Brit' looking to buy a home/business in the US. The only tiny criticisms I have are that the Wi-Fi is very weak even in the recreation room and camp office - and the access was never on in the recreation room although I expect it is during the snowbird season when the campground is close to full occupancy by travelers and snowbirds. Would definitely stay here again! - Leo Millward
May 2013 - $30.00
We have already said in January that we will come back. Now we are here-and it is even better than in January. Many snowbirds have left the area and it's wonderfully quiet here. What remains is the friendliness of the managers to us - have received a friendly welcome - as before. Finally, we have forgotten to mention that the entire campground is very clean and well maintained, as well as the the pool and shower rooms -and access to the lake. We will definitely come back in the winter. There is no beautiful and better place where everything is all around: nature, peace, shopping and the price. - usa

In this RV park there are 95% of permanent residents, half are full timer. Very nice people. It's quiet. Trees provide shade. There is access to the lake. Canoe free. In the club house, there are various activities: bingo, card games, sometimes with live music, dance, and other entertainment. There are two computers with internet access. You can borrow books and videos. Wi-Fi on the plots without problems and free. Heated pool. Full hook up with other words, it is all there. Walmart and other big stores 2 miles. We have for a week paid the weekly rate of $ 30. The owner is very nice and totally helpful. One should inquire prior to arrival by phone, whether sites are available. We have already booked May again. - usa

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

Appreciated a pull-through. It was across from office and showers and laundry. Nothing fancy, gravel mostly, but that was fine. There are other campsites with grass, and many that are way away from activities. Many seem to be permanent or annual. Far enough from Orlando to be out of the traffic. Sanford has a mall nearby. Not far from Mt. Dora. Has tennis court and horse shoes. Has a recreation room that sometimes has scheduled activites. Has a pool.
Noted a silly rule about walking dogs. People seem to think they own their campsites? Anyway, I walked my dog around on the streets, and always clean up after her. I enjoy seeing all the campers and just enjoying the walk.
Reserve early. - Umbrella

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

Surprised when we arrived at what we saw. All grass with a cement patio. The cable had to be repaired before we could hookup, good thing I carry a very long cable because it was about 40 ft away. There was no wifi as they were changing providers. Lots of permanent residents in trailers of various conditions. No dog park as advertised. Cut our stay here short. They were nice about issuing a refund. - ChiefET

We stayed here after a failed stay at a much smaller and claims to be more personal park. Not true, Southern Palms was one of the friendliest parks. They are very big but they treated us like we were their only guest. Their pool is great, the grounds were kept up, and the facilities were clean and very nice. I would recommend staying here if in the Orlando Apopka Eustis area. The extra drive is worth it. - Deliacocacola

We arrived on a Sunday, the office was closed but reservations were left in the registration box. Maps were included but the print is so small, it's difficult to read. A bystander offered help, pointed us in the general direction. The sites are very tight, short and not well marked off. Water pressure and electric were good. The entrance is along a high volume traffic road and difficult to get in and out of at times, especially with a RV. Not sure we would stay here again. Lots of permanents and the park was apparently created before long RV's came along, consequently no place to park toads or towing vehicles. - Sewmom
