We stayed here three nights while visiting friends in The Villages. Staff was nice. Sites were almost entirely sand and the patio was in a weird position if you lined up for ease in hookup connections. Cable required a deposit for a cable box so we didn't use. Except for full timers, the landscaping at the sites was nil. Very barren. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Campers World is right next door which was helpful.

This was the second time to stay here. Arrived on a Sunday and the office was closed although a site was assigned for my reservation. All the hookups were on the wrong side at site 97 plus a light pole at the street made the back in a little more difficult. Called the phone number provided and they said they plan to change that this summer, that was no help for my stay. I found another site (50) that was not assigned. WIFI is very good and the campgrounds well maintained. It appears there is a low voltage problem though. The voltage at my site (30A) was what I call weak and varied from 113 to 115 volts. Could be a problem for a/c and microwave at the same time. Pads would be suggested for under the levelers as the soil is soft sand. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Camping World was next to the campgrounds for supply or service needs.

They use pull-throughs for short time stays. Full timers had back-ins. They had new concrete patio aprons on every site but was too far forward for a travel trailer to use, works fine for motor homes. Site was not level and the hookups were at the far rear of the site, again convenient for MHs but not TTs. Sewer hookup was on the up hill side of the site and useless for me, in this case S*** will not flow uphill. Soft sandy soil didn't work well with levelers. Excellent Wi-Fi throughout the entire park. Good location for stores and restaurants within 5 miles in Summerfield. Camping World next to the park if supplies are needed, not far to go. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Next to Camping World, The Villages nearby. Cable requires a cable box which they will loan to you for a $50 deposit. Fairly good OTA TV reception pointed south/SE.

Very nice! They have grass sites with a concrete patio. The pool and clubhouse are very nice too. The lots are nice sized. The dog area is the only down side. It's basically a retention pond area with 8" high grass. This is the only area where dogs can run free. It would help a little if they mowed the grass. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very tight sights. We had 6 feet between our door and the neighbors car. The back wheels were off the ground to level. The hook ups were on the wrong side so sitting outside by the septic was not real nice. No shade. Friendly staff, fair Wi-Fi. It is right next door to Camping World which is why we stayed here. We would not stay here again. The rate is for Passport America. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The best part about this place was the price. When I made my reservation one month in advance for two nights, they said they had a pull through available. When we arrived, instead we were put on a back-in end site that was spacious but had backwards utilities. We backed in perpendicularly and never used the sewer. Our hose and electic were stretched to the max. They have a pool but the cover was always on even though it was mid-80's. About all that's available but I guess we were lucky to have it. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We arrived in Florida on New Years Day and found out the day before that our planned CG was closed due to the holiday. By coincidence we discovered this park in the Passport America directory and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed - staff were most friendly and sites, although basic, were large. We had a lot with grass and sand but sand was not a problem. Wi-Fi worked very well. It is a good location for visiting The Villages. We stayed 6 nights at the P.A. rate and would not hesitate to return. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Just by chance we drove into Southern Oaks to check on camping. (The information we got from the big camping business next door was not what we wanted to hear.) We needed somewhere to stay. We found out they had a repair man at Southern Oaks. Decided to have our work done there. What a positive experience. The park is nicely laid out with grass lots of good size. Everyone was very friendly. The manager’s husband was able to install a new refrigerator for us, and his wife worked with our insurance company for payment. He is a RV repair person. They treated us with respect and were able to get us on the road again. I will stay here again if in the area. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate was PA, with tax. The grounds are sort of basic, but for an overnight it was just fine. There is a nice clubhouse and pool. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice and clean park. People were friendly. Surprised that a campground would not have picnic tables on the sites. Would return. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The location and proximity to The Villages is what made us stay here. Once here, it was a decent CG. Great WiFi that didn't skip a beat. The site were somewhat level. Yes, it could use concrete pads and maybe a picnic table but the rate was good with PA. The clubhouse, pool and bathrooms were great. The other residents are nice. The only complaint was the sand being tracked in the camper. I would definitely stay here again. It is an over 50+ CG but allow others to stay for 2 weeks or less.

Location, Location, Location. The park is within a few miles of The Villages. It is close to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. The office staff and the pavilion were great. The roads and general maintenance were good. The sites were fairly large. There were no pads, no picnic tables, etc. Just grass and sand with the normal pedestal connections. We will stay here again only because of the proximity to The Villages. Our rate reflected a Passport America discount. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed two nights to visit the Villages. Pool and rec room were nice. Site was sized OK but sandy, with leaves and some grass. Road noise was very loud. I have normal hearing and had trouble sleeping. Roads were paved. We probably will stay here again. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We spent the winter here and we had stayed here for one week in 2009. The park has all grass lots with no concrete pads. There are ants everywhere and the park does not spray. The park is laid out backwards, the laundry is on the opposite side of the building as the parking lot. Makes it really bad for us who need the laundry. The Wi-Fi was the worst we have seen in a park that advertises free Wi-Fi. Most of the residents are either working in the area or visiting someone in The Villages so the activities are really limited. Most of the annual residents are very friendly though. If you are just looking for a park with grass lots while seeing the area, this park is great. I would not spend the winter here again. Our rate is based on the monthly rate. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground layout, easy access to sites and the location is great. Lots of sand, very muddy when it rains. Easy access to I-75 and 2.5 miles from the Villages. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.
