Maintenance of the camp sites is seriously lacking. During rainy times, like 90% of the time considering Florida's new rainy weather pattern, sites flood immediately and it gets very muddy, the kind of black muck that sticks to your shoes, pet's feet, and wrecks your coach floors. Drainage and fill is needed everywhere. Trees at the RV sites are not trimmed so your roof equipment gets damaged when you back into your site. Its as if Broward County Parks & Rec built this park many years ago but never seriously considered a maintenance budget for the RV sites. That's a real shame because once you're here in the muddy slop you're not likely to find another park to where you can escape because without having reservations, you can't just find another park and leave. So in the muddy soup you sit. Not fun.
The staff is polite, courteous, and appear busy doing their jobs, but their scope of work appears not to include maintenance tasks to address very rainy conditions. If you book a stay here, be prepared for muddy sloppy conditions. - User2594

If you want to stay in an urban area, Markham is a decent choice. Sites vary a lot; fortunately ours had good screening for some privacy between sites. Noisy all the time because it's near I-75 & I-595, adjacent to a canal favored by jet ski users, and has a popular target shooting area. Our site D5 had solid Wi-Fi. - BigPa

Restrooms needed a good cleaning. Walls and ceilings were full of bugs. Drain in shower was clogged with hair. Dogs were taken into bathroom. Noisy from road traffic and shooting range. Too many large barking dogs even some that were left to roam. Site was located a grass that needed to be cut. Trash around site and fire ring was full of cigarette butts. Site flooded during rain. - sk0624

I spent my first few weeks of motorhome ownership here, and it was excellent for my needs, being located close to the city. It's a well-kept park with helpful staff. The roads are tight, but I was able to navigate them in a 33 ft Class A on my first day driving it.
The higher-numbered spaces are closer to the railroad tracks, and mine was perhaps the closest of all. I generally enjoy being around the trains, but some would blast the horn right nearby. I slept with the window open one night and was awakened by the first commuter train in grand fashion.
The office received packages and called me when they arrived.
WiFi was a little spotty when I arrived, but as the park emptied through April, it became very good.
The discount for tri-county residents is being discontinued, so the new price ($40) is rather high for a public park. But it's an urban location in Florida. After May 1st, I believe the rate is lower. The winter dates fill up early.
It appears that a card access system is being installed, but I didn't ask. No charge for day visitors except on weekend daytimes, and then only $1.50. - bobk3d

Pros: Beautiful park, nice level and landscaped. Great location, near many beaches
Cons: Some sites hard to maneuver into. Narrow tree lined streets, arrive in daytime. Adjacent to very noisy I-95. Frequent loud trains can at times create a rumble to be felt
A great base camp park for motor homes, fifth wheels and travel trailers with some sound proofing. Not so great for sitting around outside although I will say I got used to the trains during my 2 week stay. I slept fine, trains were much less frequent at night. I would go back. - Bill & Karen Smith

Yes, as others have noted, the noise of the trains and I-95 is a bit of an annoyance if you are outside. We didn't really notice the noise that much inside our motorhome. The narrow roads were more of a problem. I was scraping bushes going to my site and leaving. Unlike what others said, there was wifi at our site that was actually pretty good. Overall, this was a pleasant place to stay. The grounds were well maintained and very attractive. I would stay here again. - MFTDoc

Very crowded, narrow roads. Noisy with sirens, motorcycles, loud music on weekends. Changed price on us after we reserved a site. Not in a very safe area. Left early even though no refund allowed . - IowaGirl

The entire staff was very helpful, friendly, and nice. But the park itself has much to be desired. It is in a bad neighborhood, and it sits next to a very busy street. We heard sirens constantly; as well as cars honking, tires screeching, boom boxes shaking the walls of our camper, and just overall loud noises and ruckus. The campground is old, and is in need of updating and overall repair. There was no security gate, and a sign posted in the office told the patrons to lock up their bicycles, as many bicycles had recently been stolen. We definitely did not feel safe staying here. It is sad that I have to write such a poor review about the park, because as I stated previously, the staff was very nice. - Mable Irene

This is the worst park I have ever stayed in. The section we were in was next to Walgreen's and the highway. The neighbors in the next site (horrible broken down camper) partied until 2 AM. The street noise was horrible. We complained and ask to be moved but management refused. They would not refund our money either. There were ants everywhere and got into our camper. The sites were very small and very difficult to get in and out of. The park is in a very bad neighborhood. No cable TV and Wi-Fi did not work. Info on their web site is very misleading. - PeachEtta

This campground is ok to stay at if you're purpose of staying in the area is to visit the surrounding areas. Ft. Lauderdale beaches are about a 10 minute drive and Miami is about a 30 minute drive. Basically the ground is a place to store your unit and lay your head at night. There's no real "camping spirit" here. Most of the units during our stay were permanent and we barely saw any neighbors. There are no fire rings provided and the grass could use some manicuring.
However, the ground is quiet, gated and very fairly priced. - On_my_whey

We came here to visit a relative in the hospital. Only campground with a vacancy.
The sites barely allow for the extension of slideouts. Little if any green space. Gated access due to neighborhood concerns.
We had to walk our dogs outside the park because seasonal campers were less than receptive. Difficult to communicate with others unless you speak French.
So little space that we were guided into our site head on and had to run our utilities under our RV. Fortunately we had an extra hose extension for the sewer. - DJanis

We stayed in the summer and the park was pretty empty with the exception of three RV, all other were permanent residents. We stayed for seven days. We were told to take two of the side by side pull through sites which gave us plenty of room. When the park is full in the winter these sites are on top of each other. The park is pretty run down and little maintenance was preformed during our stay. There is no nightly security and the only emergency number is to an onsite maintenance person. A very noisy party at the pool ran until 2:00 am in the morning one night. Lots of bugs and rodents were seen around the park. - Nevadadon

Check in was rather tedious with requests for insurance and registration for the trailer and a copy of driver's license. Never had this request before. I suspect because of it being a marina for large yachts, the facility has to be secure per US Coast Guard regulations. Of course the reason given was corporate requirements. Camp sites are extremely crowded, right on top of other campers with little room to park the tow vehicle. FHUs at each site but no picnic table, fire pits or grills. We had a water front spot which was laughable because we were so crowded we couldn't even see the docks. This is the one and only time we will ever stay here. - Nautilus

Staff was challenged in speaking broken English,or at least staff working the day we were there. There is deposit for gate key 20.00 cash,deposit for shower key 3.00 cash. you have to leave during the office hours or you dont get the deposit back. Showers,pool,laundry are all very dated. Sites are on top of each other,park is in need of alot of improvements they stay full because of their location. I would only recommend for a overnight stays I will not stay there again, I will hit a parking lot before i stay there. It is hard for me to write a review like this but it needs to be said to let rv ers know. - fosterjoel

Biggest attraction to this RV Park Marina is the location. Its just off I-95, near the airport, and located on Marina Mile which is heart of the marine industry in Fort Lauderdale. I am a full timer working in the area and they offer monthly rates that include power, water, sewer, and WiFi in places.
Some sites, especially for smaller RV's are close together. Most suprising is that the waterfront sites, are larger and offer the most amazing views next to 80-100' yachts tied up along the canals.
They have 2 bath areas but most here are in larger rigs and do not use them. A large laundry room is near the office and a recreation building with pool, is in the center of the whole marina. Its a good value for the money and somewhat hidden. Its not really a vacation spot unless you want to live cheap and stay in Ft. Lauderdale. Overall good value and its clean. - Airstreamer Mike

Management was very helpful and friendly. Our site was level w/shade and room to park our 2 trucks. I did not use the restroom/showers but the laundry was always clean and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again. - dakotabean

We pulled in and pulled right back out. Trailers were very close together, the lot and camp sites were unlevel, nothing was like their web sight suggested. Very unsafe feel to the place. We would rather stay in a Walmart mart parking lot than to spend a night in this camp ground. Best advise we can share is not to go there. - k64 -_k

Drove in to have a look. We were interested in staying for a few months. We drive in, towards the back, and then straight back out. First, it's already packed like a sardine can and it's only Sept. Second, it's in a bad part of town. Third, it's outright scary in there. I'd rather stay in a Walmart parking lot. We never even bothered to talk to anyone at the from office, we just left. - Camp time

The site is very well kept but the noise level from the plane, train, and highway is unbearable. Within two days of arriving I contacted the owner and asked for a reasonable refund of our $2000 deposit. She was very rude saying there was no refund of deposits, insisting that we should pay the full season amount, and telling us to leave if we were not happy with the site. There is no pool, no place to walk, no laundry, no front desk staff, no security, and people drive around at all hours. There is a charge for pets, company, cars, and for washing your car or motorhome. Therefore, I would not recommend this site. - daniel bergeron

No self-respecting big rig should spend a single night here. The deal breaker is airport noise. It's extreme, as in ear-splitting extreme. Heavy commercial and business jets fly within a couple hundred feet of the ground, often at 2 minute intervals, and at all hours of the night! A truly degrading experience. The park itself has no amenities, but is clean, with paved sites and some landscaping. Just to look at it, you might score it a 5. But given the noise issue, it's a 3 at best, even for a well-insulated RV with windows closed. The land should be re-purposed for industrial use. - 2fortheroad

Website says park has laundry facilities as well as security, which is completely untrue. Is right next to airport & is so loud, it is at times impossible to sleep. Park management will make you pay months in advance & after taking your money, brings you a multi-page contract to sign. Charges $10 for car, $20 for RV, which is actually illegal. Will not allow you to use the mailboxes on south end of park, nor will you be provided any paper work stating you pay rent there, so you cannot get a P.O. Box. Management will advise you that the mail is delivered to the "main", uninhabited house on the premises if you elect to receive mail there. Unfortunately, "management" leaves town for weeks at a time, to you could be literally waiting for weeks to get any mail. Power pedestals are in terrible shape. Ours was arcing @ sparks shooting out of it when we first arrived. When we contacted management, they were apparently intoxicated & on vacation. Luckily, our neighbor was an electrician & got us safely squared away. Charges for an "extra" vehicle- any vehicle that is not actually used to tow the RV. You set up an account with FPL for electricity. We left about a month ago & FPL accidentally sent our deposit ($300.00) to the abandoned house on premises is, since it's the only structure at that address. Management has neglected to contact us about it, though they had no problem calling at 9:00pm, asking me to go look for a credit card that was supposed to have been delivered to said house. It is nothing more than an overpriced parking spot. Grass is cut there at the most every 6 weeks, so it's always shabby looking. Tiki huts in front of the parking spots are all in disrepair. Pic Nic tables too I sturdy to sit at & are unsafe. Pool filled in with dirt years ago, & former laundry facility gutted & left empty. The pictures of the park bear no resemblance to what it looks like at the present time. - Camp time

If you enjoy sitting at the departure end of a major airport and hearing screaming jets fly over every few minutes, then this place is for you! In addition, we were given site S4, which is one of the sites right up against busy Burris Road. Let me out of here! Thankfully, it was only a 3-night stay, and I have no idea how the hundreds of Canadian folks can live here for weeks or months. The woman who "greeted" us at the front gate was not at all friendly, and I'm sure she won't mind that we'll never be back. Sites for RV's were very tight, although the concrete pad was nice and level. Water pressure was extremely high - don't forget your regulator. 50-amp power was adequate. Verizon reception was great, and a strong picnic table was available at most sites. Bathrooms were very nice, and clean, but the showers did not provide shelves or benches for items I would want to take with me. The laundry machines required that you purchase a $5.00 card and charge it at their machine - no thanks, I'll wait for the next stop! There was a nice walking/biking path along nearby Orange Drive that we enjoyed. Good grocery stores and other services were fairly close by. I'm sorry, but I fail to find anything about this park that warrants $65 per day. Oh, here comes another jet - gotta go! - LowesTravels

Sites are small, close together. Most are permanent or semi-permanent. The location is convenient to the highways, in an industrial area. It is also directly under the landing path for Ft. Lauderdale airport, so there is a continuous stream of jets overhead. At our site, the WIFI was mostly OK. Water was good. Staff was friendly. It is a very popular place for Quebecois, so many of the guests here are French speaking. Kind of a culture shock, but interesting! This is not necessarily a negative, just an observation. - gsgroff

Staff are very helpful and can provide lots of info for the area even if they don't appear to love their jobs. The website and site brochure are a bit misleading as the 8 laundry locations have been reduced to 3 and some other facilities have changed. The park is on the flight path for the airport which can be very busy. They park is generally well maintained especially in the large area occupied by the seasonal Quebec population. Most signs in the park are only in French. Wi-Fi is okay and they offer RV storage. We would stay again if in the area for a short time. - lrp374

This is a large park, with many permanent sites. Very small sites, all paved. It is located in a highly industrialized area of Ft. Lauderdale, surrounded by scrap metal yards, lift rentals, etc. Most of the traffic on the road to the park is dump trucks and it is surrounded by highways. It is also located directly under the runway approach for landing aircraft to Ft. Lauderdale airport. On the good side, it was fairly friendly, the Wi-Fi was mostly OK, although it was intermittent at times. It is centrally located, so you can get to wherever you want to go fairly well. What I found most interesting is that English is the minority language. It is overwhelmingly French Canadian. - gsgroff

This is a large resort well laid out. Landscaping is excellent. My reason for not giving a higher rating is based on the resort's lack of wi-fi and no cable. A resort whose normal daily rates in the winter are $125, is expected to have those amenities. Sites are quite large. There are many activities, but most of them have a charge associated with them. Check-in was poor. Only one person in front of me at check-in and it took almost 20 minutes. There are no tables or chairs on rental sites. We likely would not return or recommend it. - EdGuru

Beware if you are planning a stay here this winter. We are here for a few months. No doubt a beautiful place. Security is almost non existent. There have been several high end bikes stolen recently. One security guard from early evening until early morning. They have been caught sleeping on the job during the night.it is 70/30 French Canadian vs Americans.very nice tennis courts and shuffleboard.very clean and well kept. Two large pools.
Management will tell you they are really in the market to sell. Renting is secondary. - Jenne23
