What a beautiful place. Big rig friendly with much room to maneuver. Spacious paved lots, huge clubhouse with separate library, wifi/media room, poker room, large pool and spa, horseshoes and shuffleboard areas as well. Very clean park and owners are welcoming. Not sure why others have stated they were not welcomed as renters. We went to pot luck last night and people actually moved over to make room for us at their table, would not let us sit alone. People next to us invited us over the 2nd day we were here. Have met many of the owners and they were just as nice as can be. You can feel the love for Florida Grande from the owners and listening to their stories of neighbors helping neighbors. There is a closeness here that is amazing. RVer's in general are very welcoming people but here it is even more than that. They are just a big family. Yes, there have been past issues but the new owners are trying to make things right. I wish them nothing but the best. If you want to have peace and quiet while camping, maybe you need to be here. We camped at Florida Grande Motor Coach Resort in a Motorhome.
Come and enjoy!

Rate reflects pay for one week second week free so over all very reasonable price. The roads are lovely paved, wide as are the sites many of which have attached guest sheds/pods. This resort is limited to Class A motor homes, so no tents or trashy looking trailers. Sewer, 50 amp, good water pressure, It really is lovely...that's the good news. But the rest of the story, we arrived during transition where the long time site manger left a few days after our arrival. This is a resident owned RV resort which is currently under its 3rd "developer" and the residents who originally bought in are unfriendly, they socialize with themselves and "transients" as they called us might as well be invisible. They resent non owners. We were given no information about anything nearby and really there is nothing. We went to another RV resort up the road to inquire and were welcomed and given information packets, had we not paid we would have moved. For those who want remote quiet amidst cows in pasture, this is the place; for me it was far too remote and too isolated. Driving away every day to shop and be with people even on country roads with limited traffic gets tiresome. There is no wifi at the sites, one must go to the building to connect. No cable TV, although we were told local channels came in, not so, fortunately we used our DISH. The pool & spa were not working nor heated our two weeks there. There are only 4 washers and driers and all do not work at the same time, although I was told only about 6 residents use them, I found that not to be true. The mail is just put out onto a table so no security unless you own a site and have a mailbox. There is a gate at the entrance and we were given that code to enter when we would return, but there is no security around at all which wasn't needed as it's so remote, but one wonders what would happen if security were needed . Many of the residents live there since founded so they know each other. As one admitted to me, "this is not a good place if you are traveling alone, because we ignore visitors." It proves that price and quality are not to be presumed by spacious sites alone. I would not be interested in returning. We visited with intentions of possibly buying but after our stay,and being ignored to insulted, it is not an option. Site management is badly needed. We camped at Florida Grande Motor Coach Resort in a Motorhome.
Closest shopping facility, Walmart is in Bushnell, 12 miles on back country roads. It is 30 to 40 miles from everything including restaurants in Clermont, Leesburg, Ocala, Orlando, the Villages. Webster has a very tiny grocery store with quality fresh meat and a Dollar store. On Mondays there is a huge flea market in town. Russel Stovers candy warehouse is in Wildwood as is the closest Camping World.

Stayed at park from Nov. 2013 to end of Mar. 2014. Nightly rate is based on five month stay. Florida Grande is a beautiful park. Sites are very large and well landscaped. Park is management is very helpful. Owners association has many activities planned and renters are welcomed. My wife and I were treated just like we were one of the owners. I would give this park a 10 except for one reason. JUST TOO FAR from things we liked to do. 16 miles to closes fishing lake. 15 miles to nearest GOOD Golf Course. 25 miles to restaurants. Stayed in a motorhome. This is a Class A only park. We camped at Florida Grande Motor Coach Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Cost was based on monthly rate + electricity. Should be a 10 but so many things wrong. This is an owner park with many developer lots unsold. Webster is a windy place so we could not leave our patio awning out. Lakes are dry so it looks like giant sink holes. The water at the sites is poor quality with low pressure. Need a softener, and with 4 filters it can still be an ugly yellow color. Lots of activities at clubhouse but owners associate mostly with their friends so it feels unfriendly. A lot of the activities encourage alcohol consumption. The low rate is lost on the extra cost for gasoline to get anywhere. Most places you want to go to are at least a 30 minute drive. Non-owner mail is left on tabletop at the clubhouse, so it is unsecured. We used the Webster Post Office general delivery to receive our mail. Bankruptcy and fraud prosecution by the original developer left park owners with big losses. New owner does not receive substantial revenue so improvement projects are not being accomplished. The choices for a nice park in this area are not very good. The Office Manager and Activities Director are really great people. They work hard and are always helpful. Be careful if you want service or wash and wax. Recommend using non-owners. We had an unsatisfactory coach detailing from an owner. This park is beautiful but poorly managed. We will not return to Florida Grande. We camped at Florida Grande Motor Coach Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Rate reflects rally price. This park is beautiful, although it is huge and walking to clubhouse is a very, very long walk, from all sites. If you don't have a toad, golf cart or bike, be prepare to hike! The sites are huge and the entire park is very well maintained. The wi-fi is only available in the clubhouse and no cable hook ups either. This is the only reason I didn't rate as a 10. You would think a park this nice would have both of these.

Very remote location. 30 minutes to any good restaurant and 1 hour for shopping. Great RV pads with excellent power. Water pressure low and frequently turns yellow, even with extra filtration. Nice clubhouse. Great staff - friendly and helpful. Lakes have been drained so views are ugly. Marginal WiFi @ clubhouse only. Very good AT&T LTE and Verizon LTE. Suggest renting from the office. We rented from the owner that tried to extort additional money from us after we departed then threatened to have us blacklisted. Our experience ended badly. Will not return because of this experience. We camped at Florida Grande Motor Coach Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Stayed at this park four nights. Spent a week in Florida searching for a park for Winter Season. This is an owners park, but sites available to rent. Webster is a small town, but a short drive to larger towns. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent facilities with many activities in season. Very friendly site owners. A beautiful park. I will rent a site for 5 months next season from a site owner. Best park for the money I found during a week of looking. A true RV Resort.

Lovely park with excellent facilities. Sites are extra wide and long with attractive landscaping. New owner just took over. Very, very friendly campers. Wi-Fi at clubhouse only. Although the grounds are very luxurious, the location of the park is in a very unattractive, rural town with almost no services. If you don't mind driving 25 miles for stuff, you'll be okay. Rate reflects a weekly stay. We camped at Florida Grande Motor Coach Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Friendliest, warmest "neighborhood" feel motorcoach only RV park we have ever seen. People stop by and introduce themselves all the time. Classes offered in all kinds of stuff-crafts, line dancing, jewelry making, model airplane building, tons more. There is no line between "owner" and "renter" here. Terrific entertainment and planned dinners, we have never met such wonderful people! Volunteers keep this park running smoothly. Beautiful pool, 20,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, top notch fitness equipment. Even though it's in the middle of the state, in the little town of Webster, there is PLENTY to do.There is golf near by. Big cities are an hour's drive away if you need major culture and shopping. We love this place and will be back again next winter! We camped at Florida Grande Motor Coach Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed on a 3 night special with a low key sales pitch. If I were to buy in Florida, this would be my choice. Lots are a good size and the allowed carriage houses are nice and standardized, so overall it looks good. The only draw back is Webster is not really close to anything, except its flea market.

First, yes they are still in bankruptcy or Chapter 11. Resort is up for auction on December 15. Very sterile. To start, lakefront sites - No water in lakes as hand dug and dug out all clay so will not hold water, view is tall grass. Laundry room - yes - but no washers or dryers installed. No tennis courts, shuffle board, or pool in back - space is dumpsters and piles of debris. Lots are landscaped nicely if owned but resort owned lots are not maintained - weeds and vines taking over plants. Pool by clubhouse but has not been heated as stated and no tiki hut by pool as in brochure. In other words, you pay for a concrete slab in the middle of a cow pasture. Lot owners friendly but renters not included a lot. Have kitty out every time you go to happy hour, etc. Always want donations for something. Directions to resort on internet and in brochure incorrect. Definitely do not expect what you see on internet or in brochure. Not too much to do unless you like to drive. We rented this site on a monthly basis. We camped at Florida Grande Motor Coach Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a new class "A" only resort. The park sits on 250 acres of land, two miles east of Webster, FL. Everything is new. The resort has 215 sites now ready to rent or buy. The total site count will be 499 when finished. The resort has back in and pull in sites. All sites are level and are 32 feet wide and 78 feet deep. All sites are six inch deep cement and have 50 amp power, water and sewer. No cable TV or telephone on sites. I could not find any channels over the air here. Sat. dish will work on all sites. Verizon cell and air card worked well here. All roads in resort are very wide as are the turns. Gates are locked 24/7 but you have a code to get in. You have free Wi-Fi at the clubhouse and we could pick up Wi-Fi a good ways from this point. Club house is 20,000 Sq. feet and has a swimming pool, spa, exercise room, kitchen, billiards room, library, craft room, laundry/post office and game room. The resort has a dog run. More features will be added in future. Anyone who has a class A motorhome needs to check this place out. A noise free place to spend sometime. Staff was great. GPS is 28.61004 -82.023670.
