This is one of the nicer Thousand Trails parks we've stayed in. It's old, as they all are, but fairly well-maintained. The sites are grass, and we could see big gouges in some where people had had trouble getting out after a big rain because the ground was so soft. Only about half the sites have sewer, so they offer a "honey wagon" service for people who have sites without. We chose a site near the river that didn't have sewer and they offered us a free pump-out during our 6-night stay, which was very nice. Their electric service is subject to brownouts. We were unable to use our microwave during our stay because there wasn't enough power to run it. Our electric space heater and my hair tools worked fine. They have excellent wifi in the clubhouse. Also lots of activities. People here were very friendly, helpful. It's a nice setting, with a walking path along the river. Not much to do but there are restaurants and shops in nearby Wauchula for basics. We would stay here again. We camped at Peace River RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Great park. Friendly staff. Enjoyed potluck twice in 2 wks. Plenty of activities. Concrete patios are great! Verizon 4 of 5 bars. Showers: 3.5 of 5. Recycling: disappointing - aluminum cans only, reciprocals were not labeled so no one knows what/where they are and what should be included. Also, nothing in printed material. When are RV parks going to become part of "the solution" instead of "the problem?" We camped at Peace River RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.
Enjoyed the South Florida Museum in Bradenton. About an hour drive, but REALLY worth it!

We are Thousand Trails members and thus get a discount on rentals. Nice campground with many shaded sites and many open sites. Half of the sites are W/E only and these also are prone to getting very wet and muddy when it rains. The W/E/S sites are on higher ground and are thus more desirable. They have a lottery system to get into the W/E/S sites at 1:00 every day. We were lucky and, even though we arrived at the campground at 12:30, we got a W/E/S site right away. Since it was a shaded site, it was a bit hard to maneuver in but we liked the site. Picnic table, fire pit, pool, shuffleboard and other activities. 30 miles to Sarasota and the Ringling Museum - don't miss this. Would definitely stay here again. There are trails around the park which go near the river and you can go kayaking. We camped at Peace River RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.Undo

Have stayed here many times with good experiences until now. I know it is "off season" but the grass looked as though it hadn't been mowed for at least three weeks; it was over my ankles. A good crowd for this time of year, but little care being given to appearances. The lower section by the river was blocked off and closed. Still a great place to stay, but a shame to let things go. Rate is Thousand Trails. We camped at Peace River RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Travel Trailer.Undo

As members of Thousand Trails/Outdoor World, we are not charged a nightly rate. This campground is very nice. All sites are back-in, and most have more than enough room for a big rig. Some sites are easier to get into than others. Watch out for trees and tree stumps. My wife loves the heated pool. There are many activities, and Wachula is a nice little town with some good restaurants. We always make it a point to stop here when visiting Florida.

Stayed at this park as a Thousand Trails member. We got a beautiful site on the river (P86) but left the park early due to the electrical problems. We knew the site was a non sewer, 30amp site, but were not prepared for voltage fluctuating as low as 98 volts. Maintenance came to the site but said it was a problem when a lot of people were using power. We came back after a shopping trip to find our power off due to low voltage. We have a pet parrot and were worried about leaving and coming back to find him overheated or worse. We turned off the air, hot water heater, and refrigeration but the incoming volt still dropped below 100 volts. I finally turned the box off and used our inverter for power. I spoke with the park manager about the problem and asked what was being done about it. I was told she would not discuss the problem with the members. I think it is irresponsibly for this park not to warn people of the possible damaging low power and not do anything about it. As others report this has been a problem for many years. The park has the potential of being very nice but is getting run down instead. We found the trash bins overflowing for days at a time and smelling very bad. We value our RV and electrical equipment too much to come back until the problems a fixed and advise others to do the same. When you are paying good money for a membership members deserve better than this. We camped at Peace River RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.Undo

Rate reflects TT membership. This campground offers two choices. The first is by the road; noisy but sewer and good electrical. The second is towards the river; quieter , no sewer and poor electrical. Unknowingly, we chose near the river. The electrical varied from 112 to below 108 volts even though the majority of people were not using air conditioners. In between the two extremes is a low area which floods and is very soft. There were numerous ruts. They do accommodate campers with dogs by providing dog poop drop off containers throughout the park. However, there are only two sets of dumpsters and they are both near the front of the park. Sites are large and a good mixture of shaded and open spots. Staff is friendly. The walking trails are interesting. We camped at Peace River RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.Undo

The sewer lottery is hysterical. Only about 1/2 the sites have sewer. I rolled in right at noon. They asked if I wanted a sewer site. I replied "yes." The worker then attempted to explain the lottery to me, but then handed me a paper and said to read it. I asked what the chances of getting a site were, everyone in the office agreed that I would not get one today. 1 - There is no "random" factor in the lottery. They read the names off a list, based on the date and time that you checked in. 2 - Must be present to win 3 - If your name is called, 3 things can happen: 1. "not here" - your name gets recycled on the list for tomorrow, keeping your original check-in time. 2. "Here and Choose site" - you are present and choose from the available sites 3. "Here, but Pass" - your name gets recycled on tomorrows list. 4 - Your name can only be recycled 4 times and then it is taken off the list. 5 - If you have lost your place, then you can requested that it be added, but it will be added at the bottom I was about 50th on the list, but got a site the first day (of about 15). They actually got to the end and had 3 sites left over because about 10 people had "passed" and the rest where not here. That was great, except that I had just settled in 20 min prior because they assured me that I would not get a site today, so I had to hitch up again. Everyone plays the game hoping to get a "prime" site. Evidently, this means no trees blocking satellite signal. Whatever. The rest of the facilities are nice. Free Wi-Fi in the lodge. New bathrooms and a very warm pool. Dryers take debit cards! The playground is small, but lots of other options. Lots of activities and entertainment scheduled. The roads are narrow. Some sites are grass, and the trees can make them very unlevel, so pay attention when choosing your site. Campers are grumpy, but I guess the staff can't help that!

This park is looking rundown. They need to do a lot of maintenance and TLC. There are very few sites with tables. One man requested a table, and they refused to move one to his site. There were several in a pile in one corner of the park. They had swept debris into a pile in the office, and it was there 2 days running. I did not look on the 3rd day, so I don't know how long it stayed there. Showers are very tiny, and they need additional ones, as well as more laundry facilities. This is our first time with Thousand Trails and now wonder if it was worth it. We camped at Peace River RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This was our first 1000 trails we stayed in and our stay was good. No WiFi at site and honey wagon was bit expensive. Dump station was 30 feet from fellow camper. Enjoyed our stay there in Feb and March 2013 . We camped at Peace River RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We have stayed in this park many times. The rate reflects our Thousand Trails membership. The last reviewer was wrong on some facts. There are 200 full hook up with 50 amp. There are also 200 water and sewer only which are only 30 amp. There is no boondocking as they stated. There are a few sites in the lower water and sewer only sites that were damaged by a flood last year, but all the FHU 50 amp sites are fine. They remodeled the bathrooms last year, and also resurfaced the pool and the pool area and there is a new jacuzzi. They also remodeled the clubhouse. Another reviewer said there a 70% permanent residents. There is probably only about 30% at this time. All around, it is a nice park with some improvements being made, and it's on the beautiful Peace River. They have free WI-Fi in the clubhouse . We will definitely stay here again.

Our rate is based on being a TT member. However, the cg is open to the public. About 1/2 of the sites have no sewer and all have only 30 amp. This is a difficult place to camp, unless you like boon docking. The only Wi-Fi is in the lounge area. There are only two washers and two showers in the men bathroom. The trail and scenery is nice.

Good Verizon voice and data. Good over the air TV. Per regional manager, TTN (ELS) goal is 70% permanent residents, so facilities for transients are in decline. Like most TTN parks, promises of improvements are high, but actual improvements are low. Managers change often, so there is very little follow through. Price quoted is for members. Very few site tables. Free (good) Wi-Fi in lodge. Very many sites out of order due to bad electricity. We camped at Peace River RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.Undo

Like the campground but they say it floods when raining. You have to be on high ground. Lots of huge Oak trees and lots of squirles for my dogs. Next to Peace River for kayaking (bring your own) water was shallow but great. Its a Thousand Trails campground that is open to the public. It also has cabins to rent. As Arnold says "I'll be back".

What a pleasant experience (discount the Love Bugs). ELS has made a commitment to putting their RV parks in order and they have begun to follow through. While we were in camp, the restrooms/showers were remodeled and some of the interior roads were resurfaced and/or patched with asphalt. During our 10 day stay the staff mowed the grass throughout the park twice and fixed the pool in a day when maintenance was needed. The sites are grass and some have concrete patio pads, lots of room on each site. Staff was always busy with maintenance and helpful at all times. Trails are groomed, but watch for wild pigs in the woods and gators in the river (Stumpy and her baby). The Peace River is a fossil hunter paradise. Though this park is adjacent to a major state highway the traffic noise is tolerable, even with the citrus trucks hauling oranges 24/7. Love Bugs are a way of life this time of year but they are harmless, just lots of them. Keeping your rigs clean of the goo after a drive, or when you arrive in this part of Florida, is crucial. The acidic content of these bugs is pretty hard on painted surfaces if not cleaned off right away. You can chose a site open and sunny, or one which is treed and shady. H2O, 30/50, septic in most sites. I rated this park an 8 because there is still work to be done and the exit road is still in need of repair.
