1 Park near Tavares, Florida
Jul 2015 - $41.00
We have a 40ft RV with four slides. We use our RV on the weekends. We do not bring a car, we use our bicycles and carry a Vespa scooter. We do not travel with pets or children. We use our own hotspot for Wi-Fi and have DirecTV so we do not need cable. What is important to us is a park that is in a safe area and quiet with working hookups.
Fisherman's Cove is in a beautiful area about 20min away from Mt. Dora. There is a great park right across the street for biking, jogging etc. The park is close to grocery stores, and Walgreens. The area is surrounded by lakes.
The site they gave us was a double paved on a hill with a view of the lake in the distance. We backed to a main road and a church but we didn't have issues with traffic noise. They had us away from other RVs, which is perfect for us. The roads are wide so we had no problems backing in or getting out. The staff is extremely friendly. There were four different men who work at the front area and every one of them was helpful and pleasant. We were invited to their fourth of July picnic which we attended. The staff and full timers were there and everyone was so nice.
Some of the negatives that didn't bother us but may bother others.
The grounds were a bit unkempt, with some weeds. We were there in July so that could be why. The map they hand out doesn't match the street names so that was a fun adventure trying to find our site. Some of the RVs were very old and not in the best shape. The bathrooms were better than a gas station but they have seen better days. The area is very hilly so be prepared for that. The site was level so it wasn't an issue for us. - sjrmathis

The premium sites are HUGE! Nice cement. Probably the largest sites we've ever seen. True, this park has a lot of permanents and a lot of RVs that are older but everyone was friendly and we felt safe. We walked the entire park everyday. A good portion of people who are here are interested in fishing. It was quiet at night and the premium sites are open to allow good satellite reception. It's located just far enough out of town to be quiet but close enough to be convenient to whatever you need. - DGayle

This was our second stay at this park. First, 1 1/2 years ago was pleasant. In the first hour we were given 3 different sites. No. 104 to narrow (between lightpost & row of shrubs) to fit our 41 ft. class A. Also not a level spot on it. Site 106 we backed into, tried to level but even with boards could not level (front wheels were off the ground). Opened slides and started doing our home routine. Hubby comes back inside to say we don't have 50 amp. Site 79 had a concrete pad & patio so we went through routine again. Last thing we do is hook up cable tv. Guess what? No cable on this site. Since we had paid $80.00 deposit they came out and strung a cable three sites down to hook us up. When we arrived I told them we would be unable to stay the 7 days we'd planned. She said she would issue a credit for the remainder but she hadn't had a credit sale that day and she would have to wait until she had a sale to credit our account. This seemed very strange to me but I told her I would check back the next day. On the 4th day of our stay they had a sale and I received our credit. Still think this is strange. Used the laundry and was not happy with the condition of the washers. The rim around all 4 openings hadn't been cleaned in a very long time. There is no sink in laundry so couldn't clean myself. What we have discovered is they have sold most of the park to a developer and I think that is the area they are not doing any maintenance on. The park was 3/4 empty and we could have been assigned a site that is used in the winter for long term use. They are level, full concrete, look like newer electric boxes and probably have cable. We stay here because it is very close to relatives. If we stay again we will drive around, find a site and request that one. I advise you to do the same. - Pennylee
