2 Parks near Winter Garden, Florida
Apr 2015 - $48.00
Old Florida campground with lots of pine trees and also open spaces. Pine sap a problem so we chose the open spaces. Snowbirds had departed so lots of room but when everyone in...crowded and cramped. Lots of park models...some needing attention. Need to check sites; leveling can be a problem. Hookups also can be a problem; some sewers end up under RV and power can be a problem I am told by residents. Pools could be cleaned more frequently as debris blows in and makes a mess. Does not seem like much is reinvested in park. Daily rates way high.....monthly makes the park very reasonable for the area since it is near Disney. We stay here because it is close to family. - Jmh510

This is a really old, somewhat neglected park. Will not return though staff is extremely friendly, helpful and available. It is an okay park and the warm yet older pool in the back was very nice but we prefer something nicer. Closest we could get to attraction we were attending. Considered Stage Stop across the street and uncertain which to say is better. Sometimes very noisy traffic where we were. ALDI right across the side street is a huge plus but noisy on the street-side sites. We were gone most of the time so not a huge deal. Children's play area okay not great. Would never stay here for a season in winter. Easy drive to attractions in the area, however. 20 minutes. Restrooms were clean but showers were so so. However that's probably from usage. Picnic tables on many but not all sites. Grass sites, pretty level on ours. We are older RVers, not campers, and really prefer nicer surroundings. A little TLC would go along way here. Water main break fixed quickly. A note to staff, please do not smoke right by the doorway of the office for the sake of those of us who have lung issues, thank you. You were wonderful, kind and helpful but why anyone would smoke right by a doorway anywhere is always beyond me. - ditq

This park is NOT big rig friendly. We were placed into a lot that was covered in black dirt. it was supposed to be a pull through but we couldn't get our toad to fit in the lot. the sewer connection was uphill. the water connection was just a little over a foot above ground so it was impossible to connect any hose with a pressure regulator. When leaving we were unable to drive forward due to cars parked along the narrow road and had to back out of the lot. We barely managed to negotiate the tight turns to get out of the park. JFYI the dirt tracked into the coach. - jmlsrpc

This is an older park with primarily 30 amp sites. When you make reservations, you must request a 50 amp site. Friends had stayed in this park and forewarned us. If you are approaching this campground from the East on FL 50, iPhone Maps will tell you that you must make a u-turn. This is not accurate as there is a small crossover at the entrance to the campground and a U-turn is not required. If you approach the entrance from the west the turn is tight for a 40' fifth wheel. So, make a wide turn if you are a big rig. Also, be careful as you pass a building on the left as you enter where the camp sites are located. The road is narrow and the corner of the roof juts out. We narrowly missed it. Almost all sites are back in on soft grass. Our front levelers sunk into the ground. After mowing, there will be lots of grass clippings to track in. The person who checked us in was definitely not a people person as he did not seem to care if we stayed there or not. We stayed 3 nights. We would stay here again as an overnight visit. - Charlie C

We have a 41ft DP. We chose this park based on availability. Spring Break around Orlando means most sites were booked. Stage Stop had availability and a really low price compared to what we normally pay around this area.
We have our own bathroom, satellite and Wi-Fi so review does not include info on these things.
Overall I thought this park was great and would stay again. Nice and clean, friendly staff with long office hours, and it was blissfully quiet at this site. Best we have stayed at for the noise factor. The surrounding area is safe with good shopping, stores and a cool little town. It's very easy to get to Disney and a beautiful drive as well. A few turns, the Turnpike and the exit takes you right to the gates. There is a large field in front where we enjoyed playing Frisbee.
Our negatives were:
There were only a few spots available for 50amp. Plenty of open 30amp sites. We were able to find one but it wasn't in a location we would normally pick. Because you cannot reserve a site, it is a tossup if you will get the 50amp site.
We could not level. It was raining when we arrived. The sites are grass and dirt with no filler. No matter what we tried from wood to metal braces under the pads, everything sunk a few feet into the ground. The front wheels came off the ground, the back kept sinking. We finally gave up. I was afraid a sink hole would start. We tried again the next day and still couldn't level.
We were glad we didn't bring our daughter. There are swings, a pool etc but I think kids will be bored fast and it is more of a park for quiet adults. - sjrmathis

Available sites were back in only. They were soft grass where the motorhome left impressions in the grass. You were allowed to pick your own site. We toured in the car to select our site. Roads are narrow but big rig accessible. A nice friendly park. - jmlsrpc
