We came to Gator Park to see the Gator show. It was convenient to stay here, as Gator Park was located halfway between our two stops. We stayed for a night and while the campground is not luxurious, we did not have any issues. There was no laundry room or central bathrooms. Our spot, #20, only had electric and water but we did see some sites with sewer. After the park closed at 5:00 PM, the area calmed down considerably and overnight we were not disturbed. I think $30 a night for what is offered is a bit high. $25 would be more appropriate. Would I recommend this park? For a single night. Would we come back? Not likely. We will explore another campground next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First, let me say the area is beautiful. Just a few miles west are some great air boat rides and Shark Valley is the place to go to see abundant wildlife. However, this RV park is by far the worst I have ever seen. The staff was rude and indifferent. The road was in poor condition and the grass at the campsites was tall. The water constantly looked and smelled rusty. It was so bad it even stained our shower and commode. Some full time residents were dumping waste water on the ground and a strong odor emanated from that. The power was unreliable as well. As we were leaving we discovered there was no water available at the dump station to clean our hose or the area. If you must stay here be sure to bring your own water and don't even try to bathe in that stuff. If you can at all, skip this place entirely. I sure do wish we had. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Terrible! Stayed because we took the gator tour and airboat ride (which were very good). Park itself was horrible: dirty, rusty water, too rough with mainly full time tenants. Not comfortable. Full timers had run of things and did not leash pets. Not returning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The people were very rude and after their cursing they told us they make their money from the Europeans taking the airboat rides and don't need campers. Also they get their camping money from the Europeans staying with them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park has lots of full time residents. We stayd here because of the Air boat ride. Nothing to do at the park, but if you just want a place to park, its OK. Grass parking and not too level. Hwy 41 which runs in front of the CG is very dangerous. We were in the CG for a week and their was 3 very bad wrecks within 2 miles of the entrance to the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
