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. We camped at Markham Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Markham Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Markham Park in a Travel Trailer.

I live about 20 minutes from the park and use it ask a frequent "escape." Sites closer to the entrance (loops A-D) are rather noisy with the other park facilities nearby and highway 595. Sites further in are much nicer. Wifi works very well on most sites (and is free). Office staff are very accommodating to early and late arrivals. I will be back - very affordable park for the south Florida area. We camped at Markham Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for four days while testing out the RV before going on a 6 month adventure. Since this park is full during the winter season, we stayed at one site (A-5) for 3 nights and at another site (E-9) for the fourth night. The first site was only an estimated 1400' from a busy elevated interstate and was very noisy. The further back in the park you go, the quieter it becomes. E loop was quite nice.

This is a municipal park and offers a great dog park, boating access, a target range and lots of space for picnicking. The loops were each in a tight circle with some pads but mostly dirt and grass. The sewer hookups are located close to the road unfortunately, so you have to keep your rig close, too. There are a few trees and bushes for privacy. We would come here again but would definitely want to stay in the back part of the park. We camped at Markham Park in a Motorhome.

This park is in a convenient location if visiting the Fort Lauderdale area. The price is high for what you get, if you are not a resident. Most of the people staying here are local residents. They do not enforce any regulations, people have cars, trailers and boats parked all over the place. The sites vary a lot from one site to another. Some are paved, some are not, some are wide, some are narrow, and a few pull thru in F loop. The wifi worked marginal, suppose it depends on your location. This is very active park, there is a lot of activities available here aimed at the local residents, for this is a county park. Great bike riding around the park, due to its size. We camped at Markham Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park. Lots of activities. Kids had a blast. Was on site c10. Camped with many families. Very quiet at night. Security going around if you need anything. Shooting / archery range at the end of the park. Bike trails, fire pits at each site, good electric, and good water pressure. My only issue was on 50 amp plug was not grounded correctly. Had to use 30 amp adapter plug. Will stay here again. We camped at Markham Park in a Travel Trailer.

We picked this park to visit family nearby. No discounts are offered if you live out of the tri-county area and the price was high for what the sites offered. Water/sewer/50 amp service was good. Road was paved, but sites were grass and sand. Sites were level. There is a dog park near the campground. We prepaid and never saw a camp host, anyone at the gate, or anyone patrolling the campground on a Friday night. It was quiet. Restrooms/showers were OK. Antenna TV came in very well. We could see the interstate, but did not hear traffic noise. We would stay here again, but think the price should be lower. We camped at Markham Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park was a one day layover in route to CB Smith Park. I was assigned a Pull thru site in section F. The first issue I had with section was signage, like other places I have gone, a consultant should be hire to make sure the signage is correct, the entry sign for section F should be placed at the entry of the section, not the exit. This correction would prevent unnecessary trips around the section to get into your assigned site correctly i.e. with the utilities on the correct side of your RV. More attention to trimming the trees in order to prevent damage to our expensive gel coated body paint jobs, don't ask how I know. This appears to be a good job for a volunteer to handle at no expense to the park or county. We camped at Markham Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Generally positive experience. Fenced off-leash dog park. Sound of firearms from the target range in the park. Weekends, if there, is an event you have to wait in a sometimes long line at the gate to drive back in to the park. Park office said to make reservations which can be cancelled. That means that even if they have reservations the people may not show up so you never really know about availability. Make reservations and just cancel what you end up not wanting. Secluded, which is both good and bad. Long drive to beaches or Ft. Lauderdale. Pretty good part of town. Right outside the gate is a very affluent area. Still had a rash of car break-ins at the dog park when we were there. Carnies flood the place once a year in winter. We camped at Markham Park in a Motorhome.

We chose this park due to its proximity to our son's home while visiting for 5 days over the Christmas holidays. It wasn't bad, but there really is not much to do if you aren't there visiting friends or family. The sites are arranged in a circle (5 per ring) and are large, some shady. The biggest problem we had was that the utilities hook ups are spread very far apart from each other. It was a stretch to reach the sewer when the water is hooked up as it was quite distant from the power/water pole. Very awkward set up. The park itself is clean and nice although except for the dog park and the shooting range, nothing else was open. Security is virtually non existent as anyone can come and go as they please through the campground at all hours of the day and night (and camp out) except on the weekends when there are security personnel at the gates. Found this to be odd for the area. There really is no camp store. The registration office only carries ice and firewood and nothing else, so you need adequate transportation to get to groceries and restaurants. Not an unpleasant stay, but we will not be staying there again. We camped at Markham Park in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful campground within a wonderful park. There is lots of shopping just outside of the gate. They now have a campground host in the winter. We camped at Markham Park in a Motorhome.

Found this park not to be really good for anything except for the people of Sunrise using it as a dog park, bike riding or shooting their guns. Pool was not open because the city didn't want to pay for a life guard. The camp sites were not cleaned of excess tree branches etc. Should be used only for scouts maybe, as long as they don't want to swim. We only stayed 2 nights and really wanted to stay in this area for 2 weeks. But for the cost of the site, there was nothing worth staying for, so we moved on farther south. Would not recommend this camp to anyone. We camped at Markham Park in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent park for snowbirds. Just outside the main gate is anything and everything you could want. The campground arrangement is a bit unusual. 9 circles each consisting of 8 - 10 campsites each are arranged along the campground road. Each circle has one paved campsite, the rest are grass. All roads are paved and there are no low hanging tree branches to look out for. Three full service restroom/shower houses are arranged along the campground road. This park is better arranged for RVs but tents are accommodated well. A very friendly campground host is present during the snowbird season to arrange various activities for the campground. Security service patrols the entire park throughout the night. We would return again. We camped at Markham Park in a Motorhome.

Nice campground with older facilities, but recommend people avoid sites E-6 and E-7 due to the overwhelming quantity of bird droppings. At the moment E-7 looks to have a long term resident. If you choose E-6, try to position your rig as close to the front of the site so that you minimize the number of limbs your rig is under. The earlier warnings of tight turns and unusual entry should be heeded, but they are manageable. Strong air card & cell phone signal here. You can hear the firing range, but it's not bothersome. Great entertainment watching the radio controlled aircraft. We camped at Markham Park in a Fifth Wheel.
