Friendly, efficient check-in. Owners extremely accommodating. Site was clean, quiet and dark. Many services available. Park is a little remote but well worth the drive. Campground was full with many, happy campers. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Would have to say quite unique, very friendly and interesting.

Some tight areas but, the spaces are large and nice, with good hookups.

No cable but some local ant. channels.

A very fun place.

Would be great for kids too! We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a small out of the way park, loaded with charm. The staff went out of their way to make you comfortable. Roads are gravel but in good shape. Some sites are just grass but some have asphalt and paver patio. There are a lot of full time residents. Small lake for catch and release fishing only.

Very happy to be back at our winter home, off the beaten path. Owner is approachable and makes sure that guests have what they need for an enjoyable stay and is open to suggestions for improvements. There is a real sense of community here with monthly activities during the snow bird months. New projects this year include making a kitchen in the recreation pavilion, designing unique decor around the castle, and new wilderness tenting spots. What is great is that IF you are a craft-builder-type person and you want to join in on some of the projects, you are always welcome to take part in the community improvements and/or the greenhouse to grow your own veggies. However; if you'd rather sit and relax by the pond and just read a book, or enjoy one of the many gorgeous sunsets; it is peaceful and quiet enough to do so. A great place to visit for a short stay or long stay, but make reservations by calling during the winter months if you want to ensure a spot. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have been going to Cody's for 3 years. Love the location and peacefulness of the pond. Every year there have been improvements to sites. This year we are happy to see that improvements are ongoing for the good of the park community. Owner and manager very helpful in trying to accommodate the needs of campers as well as the full-time residents. A relaxed environment with friendly neighbors-- a real PLUS that is hard to find. Wi-Fi is free at the Pavilion as well as a pool table, big screen tv, and Wii game for all. Canoes and kayaks are available free of charge to paddle around the pond that has coy fish, turtles, and other fish. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nicely located off the beaten path and has a country atmosphere with pond, ducks and fish. Many are fulltime residents. Manager and owner only enforce the "rules" that were handed out when they feel like it. Building materials and junk are strewn about the campground from unfinished projects. Bathrooms are clean; laundry services are old and don't work very well. Very laid back and friendly; however, it has turned into a party park. The staff are always driving around in golf carts. The services are adequate, but noisy parties are frequent. If you are looking for a park to raise some hell at, as long as you invite the owner, this would be your park. Wi-Fi is available at the pavilion, but hit or miss at your campsite. Office is not manned so you have to locate the manager if needed. After 3 years, not returning. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects one night Passport America and then weekly rate. We came back to Cody's to visit friends who are staying here. There have been several improvements made to the park since our last visit four years ago. One of them that we really like is the stone paver patio's that have been installed in some of the sites. The bathrooms in the office building have also been renovated and the other one's near the pavilion are a project in progress. Yes, there are several permanent residents here but in today's economy, this is not unusual. Everyone here is friendly. Some of the folks don't keep their area clean and free of junk as they should. Management goes "above and beyond" to make your stay at Cody's a pleasant experience. WiFi is free and fast during most of the day. We hope to get back to Cody's sometime soon. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

My wife and I took our 6 year old grandson here in a 30’ motor home for 3 days. Both staff and the park manager were very polite and helpful. We were guided to a full hook-up site. We used the 50amp service, water and sewer hookups. We were able to get 14 local TV channels (no cable hookup) on our onboard antenna. They offered free Wi-Fi but did not use it. The very large “catch and release” pond has all sorts of easily caught bream, bass and sun fish. We never caught any catfish, but did see very large ones. Several people there said they had caught them. We were also offered free kayak and canoe use on the lake. We built a campfire in the site provided fire ring both nights. My grandson made several friends who gave him food for the catfish (and other fish) which could be fed from the floating dock and elsewhere on the lake. Since the park is about 2 miles off the main highway, there was no traffic noise and the park itself was very quiet all night. The unpaved, but well maintained road was quite dusty. The park appears to be a very old one which shows wear and tear from its age. However everything appeared to be in working order and was kept clean. There are many permanent resident sites, some occupied and some closed up. I suppose the low monthly rate encourages some to park here and visit when they want to. The residents and the guests all were friendly toward us. We will return when we get the opportunity. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We reserved a spot at this place last minute, mostly selected this place based on reviews on this site. Although the manager was very friendly and professional, guided us into our drive through location and assisted in our getting hooked up I wasn't real comfortable in this RV park. My experience was a bit different then those who have reviewed here. I need to qualify myself as an inexperienced camper so perhaps my expectations are unrealistic. My overall view on this place was it appeared to me a trailer park, most every site was filled with what appeared to be a permanent resident. Many of the trailers and motorhomes looked like they had not, nor could not be moved. It didn't look to be snowbirds staying there it looked like people who had become homeless and now lived in trailers in an RV park. One trailer looked to be about 15' long, tires were flat on one side so the trailer was leaning and someone lived in it. To me the place looked unsafe, although we were only there 2 days and had no issues it wasn't the weekend getaway camping trip I had planned. If you currently live in a mobile home park with dirt roads and broken down cars you will feel right at home. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We used this campground for an overnight stay only, and fortunately, was given the best site in the campground. We had a very nice view of the pond, cement pad with picnic table and foliage offering some good privacy. Other sites seemed fairly close to each other. It was quiet at night. The gentlemen was nice, informative and escorted us to our site. The campground is mostly "rough around the edges". Most seem to be permanent residences, lawn ornaments all around and unkept. No one was friendly, no one was rude. The dumpster was loaded with beer bottles. This campground served our purpose but glad we did not stay anymore than one night. Hookups were fine. We will not return. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Although Cody's caters to RV campers, this campground also allows tent camping and is a great place for it. Your tent site is right beside the pond with a great view and you are allowed a campfire, they even deliver the fire wood right to your site! Clean restrooms and showers. We met the owner who was very nice and made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The Manager escorted us to our site and give us a quick run down of where everything was located and insured we had his telephone number in case we needed more help. I was really impressed with the personal touch a tent camper receives at this campground and look forward to our next return trip. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Tent.

We had friends come with us in a tent and was able to get a tent site right next to our tag along trailer camper. That was a real plus, even when we showed up without a reservation, the manager insured we would be close together. The campground is a quite place but close to Weeki Wachee State Park, which the kids (and myself and the wife) enjoyed. Planning a return weekend get away trip back and looking forward to it! Rates are the best we have found and they give you discounts if you show up in a group. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at Cody's for a few nights, it was a very pleasant campground, out of the way. A really, back to nature campground, not like the other paved road types. This campground has real character. Plenty of things to do in the area and the campground has boats available for use, fishing, a rec hall with pool table and a castle! We met the mermaid of the park. The park manager told us this was the brain child of the owner. He created it and I must say he did a fine job. There is a real working lighthouse too. Everyone is really friendly and we meet people from Canada and Germany staying here. If you don't want the main stream type of campground, I would recommend Cody's for a truly relaxing and quiet camping experience. We camped at Cody's Catfish Pond and RV Park in a Motorhome.
