2 Parks near Tampa, Florida
Jan 2016 - $60.00
Most sites are on level gravel with cement patios. Some are on level grass. Ours was on grass, but it was good, with more space than the gravel sites. (We were told the grass sites are being redone this year.) WIFI is very good most of the time. Staff is nice; most are very helpful. Most sites have cable; ours didn't but there are a lot of local stations so television was no problem. Water is on two sides of the park; there are lovely docks for wine sipping but keep bug spray handy. Sites at the far end of the park are across the water from a busy road. That would be noisy, so if quiet is important, request something away from the far end of the park. If traveling during "snow bird" season, book ahead, although we saw various openings for possible short stays. Laundry is good; pool is heated. No hot tub. No pull-throughs. Really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.
They have work campers who have mechanical, plumbing, etc. expertise who are available to assist with problems (for a price). We were so grateful to have this, as we had a plumbing problem and the person was wonderful at helping us resolve it!
Price listed is daily rate. Monthly rate is less; that's what we paid. - DrM Traveler

Nice Park. Sites are gravel and level. Site size is above average. Most or all sites are among trees. Satellite usage is not possible but they have good cable. WIFI was excellent for a park of this size. Very friendly staff. They have a very active social community. I would stay here again. - wgh52

Lovely RV park near downtown Tampa. Very park-like setting: many shade trees, roads well paved, sites are paved and roomy, grass, some gravel, and nice patio areas. This was mostly seasonals, and majority of 5th wheel homes, no doublewides. Easy to maneuver big rigs through the park itself. The thing that impressed us the most was the way every seasonal sites were so well kept with beautiful decks and patios, tasteful decorations, and an all around sense of home pride. There are 2 small ponds on the property with fountains so the water is clean. Bocce, horseshoes, nice pool area and a large clubhouse. We only have 1 negative: The entrance is very poor. They located the garbage dumpster right at the narrow roundabout that you must navigate to check-in. We could not make the turn as someone had parked there to dump trash. Because we are 40' AND towing, we had to disconnect to maneuver the curve. Very poorly laid out! Park is gated, staff are very friendly and accomdating. Unfortunately we were here for only 4 nights as a stopover. Would definitely come back. - KSAM14

I Do Not Recommend this RV park to anyone. First of all it's located in a really sketchy part of Tampa. We were there for 3 months. Our first month, during the daylight hours, we caught 3 local kids stealing one of our bikes, got it back that time, but a week later, they came back and cut the locks off both our bikes and took both of them. These kids continued to come back over and over. Also managing to steal other RVers bikes.
When it first happen, the acting manager said and I quote, "I can't be outside 24/7." Excuse me? Im sorry, but that is the wrong answer to tell your customers who pay quite a bit to stay in your not very attractive RV park. The people who run this place really don't care if anyone steals your stuff. I didn't even get an I'm sorry that happened to you.
This place is not your typical RV park. There are long term residents, its across the street from a family dollar. Its near Busch Gardens and a lot of businesses. Thats about the only thing it has going for it. The bathrooms are ok, however the stall doors are right in your face when you sit down. The laundry room is located in between the bathrooms. 2 out of 4 washers don't work and 2 of 3 dryers do work. There's no pool either. They also charge for electric.
I will never ever stay here again. If you decide to stay, its def going to be at your own risk and don't have any expectations. - Ellie Q

This park was scary. Its in a really old, bad part of town. I wasn't comfortable walking around in the park, and absolutely wasn't comfortable in the neighborhood. The park is the closest to Busch Gardens, but I would rather stay somewhere farther away that is nicer. Most of the residents are full-time permanent, in trailers that are no longer mobile. The park was noisy at night, with some pretty loud late parties, and a fight. The owner is hard of hearing, so this doesn't bother him. I wouldn't stay there again. The lots are level, and of good size. - Becky Jones

This is the "closest" park to Busch Gardens. It is on Nebraska Ave, hence the name. Stayed here for one month. Campground is mostly permanent residents, living in barely mobile units. The hosts were extremely rude on the few times I had to deal with them. The Manager is only there a few times a week, and albeit a nice guy had no intentions of improvements. The park is actually behind the "old" entrance and set off Bougainvillea Ave. The "cool" old part is listed as for sale. The neighborhood this park is in is NOT good. We were afraid to walk around even in the daytime. There is no enforcement of a speed limit in the park, and the perms think they run the place. overall this is the last place in Tampa I would ever stay again. - John Moder
