PA rate only applies to the high season rate. If you come during the low season, you get half off the high season rate, not the much cheaper low season rate. PA is still cheaper than the low season rate. Confusing signage at the entrance. Why can't they just have a sign that says "Park here to register"??? That would make things EASILY understood. Whatever. Permanent residents apparently don't have to obey the one-way street signs. At least 3 of the residents don't obey them. Maybe they figure rules don't apply early in the morning. Zero shade in the pull thru area. Road noise when outside your coach may be bothersome. Utilities worked fine. Saving grace for me was the fenced retention pond that doubles as an off-leash dog park. Dry conditions in the area meant there was no water in the pond, so my young dog got to run around. Saw several people walking their dogs in the streets and everyone appeared to pick up after them. Good!! Second time here but not sure I'd stay here again. Would depend on offerings of other parks in the area and what I needed to do. This time the parks's central location to the activities I wanted made the decision easy. Getting here from the Fla Turnpike/I-75 is easy. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Paved roads. Sites are grass/sand, level, some with paved patio and table. No shade. Staff was friendly and helpful. We did not use the pool. The WiFi actually worked! As all of you know most RV parks advertise WiFi but do not deliver; we were very pleased with this park's WiFi. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed one night on way to South Florida. Park was clean and well kept. Electric was good as was water and cable tv. We had a pull thru site that easily handled us and our tow. Site was crushed lime rock, but was level and easy to get in and out . Plenty of width for the site. There was limited shaded sites available but since we were only overnighting, we were happy with what we had been assigned. Interior roads were paved. Staff that we dealt with were friendly and very helpful. There is a Camping World next door if needed. Restaurants are nearby. Park was very quiet and peaceful. We would stay here again when in area. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground. Sites way better than average, but the patio was in a funny place for our Fiver (should be moved back farther from road so where the door opens.) Great activity center. Staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend when in the area. WiFi very slow so used phone hotspot. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed a week here because of the parks proximity to the Villages. This is a very clean, well maintained park. We were on a site that had new concrete pads. There is a nice new pool, but it is a bit small if you like to swim (I think max dephth is under 5 ft).

The park is located right besides Camping World and 10 min from the Villages. We would have liked to stay one more day, but they would not prorate that day to the weekly rate, and so we took our business elsewhere. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

There is a large grass field between the park and Camping World. This is a much better place to run your dog than the 'sewer pit' provided by the park.

We are very new to the RV camping world. This resort is right next door to Camping World which is where we purchased our new travel trailer so we thought we'd try it close by in case there were issues with our unit (or we didn't know how to hook something up). The staff is very nice; We came in after the office staff had gone but she left me a note as to which sites were available. The site we used was a pull through which made it easy for us first-timers. The sites were wide, clean, and the hook-ups worked great. The bathrooms in the facility were spotless! The pool was also spotless and nice. Although we didn't have time to participate, we noticed there were activities available at the clubhouse (Wii bowling, Zumba class, Texas Hold 'em). We also didn't use the laundry but it looked nice as well. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is the road noise from Hwy 441 but that's not really their fault; just a location issue. We could only stay 2 nights. One evening, we drove to The Villages for dinner. What a delight that was! I would return again. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park is really great. Friendly staff & easy into sites. Would recommend this park to anyone. We have friends that live in the villages & we were only 5 minutes away. We camped at Southern Oaks RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.
