The park is located only a short distance from I-75. There is 1 section that is reserved for short term visitors and the much larger area for snowbirds. This park is very neat and attractive. Even though we arrived around 4 PM, the office was closed for the day. Very detailed instructions were provided to select the appropriate site for the evening -- pay in the morning. The park is located in a small city environment, but many restaurants, WalMart, and other services are within walking distance. The exercise room, laundry, and activity center were very neat and attractive. We were truly impressed with the entire park. The rate reflects Passport America and was a BARGAIN. The monthly and seasonal rates are significantly lower than those in the SW Florida area. The only reason that I checked a 9 instead of 10 is that the transient lots are very near your neighbor. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects Passport rate. We stopped here for a night, this is before all the snowbirds come back, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The office was closed for the weekend. There were envelopes supplied to deposit your payment. If you ever need a place for the winter with lots of activities, this looks like the place to be. It has a nice dog park, They have Wi-Fi, but you have to pay for it. A Walmart, that we walked to. We would stay here again, off season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here a few years ago in the full price section and it was great! Yesterday, we used Passport America for 1/2 price and were parked in back of the lot. The ground was too soft for jacks even with plates underneath. Cable TV required about 50 ft of cable because it was available only at the furthest next door site. It was adequate for our purpose because we stayed only 1 night to visit kin nearby. Many snowbirds which makes sense. April 4 is not quite out of season for them. Park honors Passport American from April 1 thru the start of their winter season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Talk about a friendly park...this is it. Bill and I are from California but are traveling the country. We've been full-time RVers for two years. If we weren't already 'done' with Florida and we didn't have grandkids in CA and we were of a mind to settle down for a time at one park, Blueberry Hill RV Resort would be the one. It's pristine and active. We really enjoyed our week there. If you are in the Bushnell area to try it out. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Fabulous park. We stayed for about a month and a half. The park was super easy to get in and out of. We stayed in the long term back in sites in the back, which were very spacious. The short term pull throughs were also very nice. Super friendly staff and campers. Super clean and lots of activities. If you get bored it is your own fault. Very accommodating. We had no problems with our 40' rig. Pet friendly!! Cable was great. WiFi was average. Could be slow at times, but no biggie. Tons to do in the area and the location is perfect to Tampa and Orlando for day trips. We highly recommend this park for short or long term stays!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My husband and I have camped at this campground on and off for years to go to Webster Flea Market. There are large grass sires in the back and long paved pull throughs on the front side. Since Sun RV Resorts bought it there have been a lot of improvements. There is a new floor in the billiards room (which is great) and the library. There is a new large fenced pet run area, a new bocce ball court, a new pickle ball court, a brand new exercise room with all new equipment, fresh paint on the clubhouse and the park benches, a new putting green, and a new pool fence and furniture, nice new locked mail boxes for longer term stays, a TV and couches in the clubhouse, and a new activities director. We prefer the paved sites because they are clean...just try to get a spot close to the clubhouse otherwise you will feel like you are camping in a parking lot. You can walk to Walmart, Wendy's, Subway, KFC, McDonald's, Dunkin Donuts, a Chinese restaurant and a pizza place. This park is super clean, convenient and very easy to get into. The only improvement they could make would be to add another bathhouse for the grass section. There is only one bathhouse for the whole park although they are great. You have a locked separate toilet, sink and shower in each one. We will definitely stay here again although we won't be eligible for the super rate we got. Sun RV Resorts is offering an $89.00 a week special plus a resort fee which worked out for us in December to be $15.00 per night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was extremely disappointed in this campground. The restroom were a mess, the cleaning people didn't show up until well after 12 noon. Must have been partying all night from all the music we heard into the wee hours of the morning. Not really a nice pleasant campground. We had originally paid for 2 nights, but after the first night we decided to leave cutting our weekend get away trip short. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Location; on C.R.609, about a half mile off I-75, exit 314. Here for Carriage Club Rally Staff. Friendly staff. Cost for the rally it was $25 per night. Regular rate is $35 per night, $210 weekly. Don't know if they honor any club discount. Great monthly rates, a limit time special was $375/month. That, I believe expired. The park is under new ownership as of mid February. The long term section of the park has double wide sites. All sites in the short term section were narrow and paved pull-throughs with full hookups. 50 amp electric. Paved roads. Some small trees with no privacy between sites. Sites are very close. The long term section has much larger sites. Sites there are on grass with a gravel pad and paved roads. Sites are big rig friendly, but a little tight turning into the narrow sites if someone on both sides. Heated pool, big Clubhouse, scheduled activities and usual park amenities. The restrooms here are about the best we ever seem in a RV Resort. They are private and all tile, super clean. I believe they are very new. Also, all the buildings were in very good condition. There is a nice separate billiards and game room. There is also a large pavilion. They sell LP gas. Very nice clean laundry with about 8-10 machines, and parking in front. Good Verizon signal. Wi-Fi in clubhouse. Over the air TV, about 12 channels. Dog friendly. A lot of room to walk a dog, as this is a big park. There is no fenced dog run. Good night lighting, quiet. There is a small book exchange. A very well kept and clean park. All buildings are super clean and well kept. Probably several miles of paved roads in the park for walking or bike riding. A shopping center with a Walmart in walking distance. Several good restaurants near by. Close to the huge Webster flea Market. Easy access from I75. There is no "Wow and It" factor, but it is a nice park. The transient sections is tight and good for a few nights. If we would stay here long time, the long term area in nice, but no privacy between sites. If passing through the area we would have no problem staying here for a few nights, but doubt we would stay here long term. Just not enough in the area for our taste. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I've stayed several times at this park in the past 7 or so years, it is still a very nice park but I didn't really feel very welcome here this time. Some of the staff have an overall bad attitude and I didn't feel that short or sharp answers to questions was a good way to interact with the public. I think I'm going to have to find a different park in the area to stay at my next time in the area because there are several parks and maybe I'll find more congenial folks to deal with. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We originally stayed here because we were attending a rally, but we stayed on for an extra week. The park has wide paved roads and sites. It's clean and very well kept. The pool was being cleaned as we arrived here and was available two days later. We had a problem with the cable TV service and it corrected within minutes. Plenty of dog walking areas. The weekly rate was $228.00. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Planned on staying here a week, but after 3 days enough was enough. Yes it is a pet friendly park. Pet owners let their dogs run free in the park, crap on your campsite, and people just walk through your site! I like to sit outside of the morning and have my coffee while watching the sun rise while it is quiet, but we have two small dogs come running each morning over to our site, do their business and then start barking at us. After informing the camp hosts, nothing was resolved. After 3 days of this we left to continue our travel to the West Coast. I thought it was a unwritten rule that you don't walk through someone's campsite, and campgrounds made everyone keep their pets on a leash and had them clean up after them. Guess I was wrong about this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had our annual Eastern MILWIT Rally Mar 6-9, 2011 here. 17 motor homes in total. Campsites are all pull-thru. There are no large shade trees but the sites are landscaped and each has a little patch of grass. Nice pavilion for meetings. Commercial kitchen available for groups. Staff friendly but got our group and another group's use of the facilities mixed up several times where we had to relocate. They did not have us parked together very well, even though they had advance notice of our event. Convenient to Webster Flea Market on Mondays and Beasley Manufacturing in Center Hill is close by for sunscreen/outdoor rug material. We had a group rate. Regular rates are higher. Several good restaurants nearby. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate shown reflected the fact that I stayed at this park for a month. Everything the other reviewers have said is correct, including the fact that the management company that owns the park are real jerks. Most of the long term tenants have left for other parks. It seems everyone pays a different rate, depending on what you can negotiate. In the summer they do not reduce the rate, so the place is a ghost town. Last year, I paid $275 for November and December, and this year, they wanted $600 for each month. Fortunately, I told them to get real, and they finally, after two weeks, gave me a better rate. The park hosts are wonderful, sweet, and very helpful. It is such a shame what they have to deal with in the management home office. The ownership obviously does not know what they are doing. The new NASCAR theme is a real joke. They play the races, very loudly, and no one watches. I doubt if it brought in any additional business. If they wake up, and come up with some competitive rates, it is a great park and everyone there is wonderful. Until they do, they will continue to lose business, cut activities, and eventually die. If the park was sold, it would be the best thing that ever happened to it. Since their revenues have decreased so much, the book value of the property has to be devastated. From being 95% full two years ago to 25% full now. You figure it out. Since most campers do not have to deal with home office management, if you can get a decent rate, stay here! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park name is in the process of being changed to Nascar. Very nice campground with paved streets and sites in the short term area and wider grass sites for longer term folks. The paved sites are narrow. I felt it was a little expensive but very convenient to I-75. We got good Verizon and satellite signal. I disliked the manner in which they charge the full amount on your credit card upon reservation. We saw alligators near the wet areas around the periphery of the park, and one very near the pet walk - so beware! We would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for the 2008-2009 winter season and enjoyed it . The staff was great: very helpful this being our first year. That being said the Morgan Resorts company was not great. The internet was terrible. We finally canceled our monthly membership because we could not get them to fix the problem (not enough capacity for all who wanted to use it). Overall a nice park: very clean with all the amenities and a nice helpful staff. They were all great. The management company stunk! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Park is nice but the free internet is only for 2 hours and a one time log in that they don't tell you about during check in.If you log off the 2 hours are gone.They charge 7.95 for 24 hour internet which is very expensive compared to other parks. No cable at this park so unless you have a dish,no TV or bad reception. We paid passport rates but the regular rate of 40.00 is not worth it.Next time we will check out other parks before returning here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park. Just wish the pull throughs had been a little wider. Felt like I was on top of the camper in front of us. At least the sewer connect wasn't directly under our awning. Enjoyed the heated pool and billards room. Not a whole lot for kids to do except run to Wal-mart every day! Our teenage son enjoyed the billards and my niece enjoyed the pool. Mainly stayed here to visit family and have a concrete pad. Would go back if in the area. Fellow campers very friendly too. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nicely maintained park. We stayed in the pull through area because we wanted a paved pad. The Park is located right across the street from a Wal-Mart which was both good and bad. We found it convenient for groceries and bottled water, but the car/truck noise was a bit of a distraction at times. The pool, recreation hall and showers were top rate. There were plenty of things to do in the Park but other than the flea market in Webster, the surrounding area was a little dull. Internet access was provided by "WiFiFee" and you need to contact them to discontinue service when you leave the area or they will continue to bill your credit card. A previous post commented on the lack of TV reception. When using our regular antenna and a digital converter box we received at least four networks. The staff and snowbirds were all friendly during the week we were here and we would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a wonderful campground. Previous reviewers have detailed the highlights of the campground - level paved sites, lovely pool, proximity to Wal-Mart and Interstate, friendly staff. We stayed here a week and enjoyed the planned entertainment. The rec hall has a stage and the regulars like to have jam sessions and outside musical entertainers. Worst things about the CG are no cable service and only one channel available through antenna, and the sites are close together in the paved area. We will return for a longer stay if they resolve the cable situation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this park many times and have noticed the loss of park amenities. The pool is out of service and has not been working for over a month. Some of the chairs around the pool are broken or damaged. The big screen TV is not working and telephone access is becoming very limited. The park cleanliness is well above average and while this is still a great campground it is sad to a decline in maintenance. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the elite of the elite. The pool is great the private bathrooms with private showers are the greatest, 4 pool tables and a library with tons of books and puzzles. The club house with a full kitchen for you to use; comes complete with 3 stoves, slicing machine, and all you need for 1 to 1000 to prepare food. This is the spot! These hosts really make this place complete. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Out of 10 parks, this was the best we've stayed at in terms of amenities. The bath house is extremely beautiful and clean. The pool is big, as is the clubhouse, where you can play pool on one of four tables, check out books in the large library, or relax in front of big TV screen. The one thing that makes this a 9 and not a 10 is the relatively small space on the sides of the RV, where usually you find a picnic table. Nevertheless this gets a big recommendation for an overnight stay! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped in 45 foot motor home. Easy access off Interstate 75. Across the street from Wal-Mart. Paved interior roads and sites in older section. All the buildings including the club house were very neat and clean. Swimming pool, basketball, horseshoes, and shuffleboard are all available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a month, hence the rate shown. Exceptionally clean campground, showers, and bathrooms. Great activities. Super clean pool. Walk less than a block to Super Walmart. Only 8 miles to Webster, FL, the site of a huge flea market on Mondays. Convenient to I-75 but far enough away so as not to hear it. Pull-thru spaces are relatively narrow, but angled so you won't feel packed in. Back-in spaces are very wide but require a 3 month minimum stay. Staff is very, very nice and clubhouse, billiard room, card room, and puzzle room are all immaculate. I would definitely return to this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with paved roads and sites. Beautifully kept grounds and a sparkling pool. Staff always with a smile. The Walmart within walking distance was a help. Passport accepted. This would have been a 10 but the sites are a bit narrow, no tables and no cable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is very under-rated in Trailer Life. We booked for 2 weeks, and stayed 2 months. Immaculate grounds, excellent activities, best pool area we've seen, plus great entertainment. You can walk across road to Super-Walmart. Easy day-trips for sightseeing. Very easy on and off I-75. Kind of hate giving such a good review because it is a well-kept secret. Will definitely return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed at this park 3 years in a row for 2 to 3 months at a time. It's a very, very nice park, exceptionally clean, people are friendly. However, it is probably the last time we will stay as the rates are going up. Last we paid $350 per month and I believe next winter it will be $450. I think this is excessive, and also they want to have all the money in advance. One of the reasons you have a mobile unit is for flexibility and that's important to us. However, if you want a good park, next to Walmart it's a good spot to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground is very nice and very well kept. The staff are very nice and have a lot of things to do. The sites are a little close but nice the area is not so nice but Wal-Mart is next door. I saw a man picking up dog waste and I was not happy that some campers with dogs are so lazy that they can't pick up after their own dogs. This is why some parks do not allow any dogs. (I have 2 dogs so don't think I am not a dog lover.) We will be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
AWESOME. One of the nicest parks we've been in. WOW bathrooms, great activities, well maintained. Just learned (June 2005) the park has been sold. I sure hope the new owners live up to the old owners standards, because I'd sure like to come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location, next to Wally World and one block from I-75. Newer park that is very well maintained. The overnight/short term spots are all pull throughs but a little close together IMHO. All RV spots are blacktoped. Long term spaces are huge but not paved. The roads are all wide, paved and gently lit. Dislikes: no picnic tables anywhere. One trash collection location in this big park. The area is a little bit boring. Bottom line: A very nice place. We'll come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have been to quite a few campgrounds but I must say none of them meet the standard of
this park. I would have to say it is the most pristine campground I have been to.This campground has been put together with a lot of thought and ingenuity.I can't wait to go back and they are still expanding. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice new park. On the surface it appears to be all right. However, the rules for children are not enforced and the kids "run wild". Rules of the park are strictly enforced for the snowbirds, but the overnighters can ignore them and the owners just ignore it, i.e., no washing of vehicles is very strictly enforced, but not for the overnighters. Some snowbirds try to intimidate others into their rules and the owners do not want any confrontation so ignore the complaints. Rates are to go up after this season, will not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
New park, owners on site and doing it the "right" way! Park accepts children but puts limits on length of stay. Monthly rate is much cheaper than daily and six month rate is even better. Phones are not instant on but can be arranged through the telephone company. Many activities in the winter. Close to everything. New Super WalMart is across the street, walkable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
This is a brand new park. All amenities are brand new. All sites are paved and pull through. Staff/Owners are friendly and helpful. Easy access from I-75, near Dade Battlefield State Park and world famous Webster Flea Market (open every Monday and livestock auction on Tuesday). Only 45 minutes from Tampa, 60 minutes from Orlando, 30 minutes to Gulf of Mexico, 30 minutes to Ocala. Great base camp New Wal-Mart Supercenter under
constuction in area. Good fishing in Lake Panasoffkee. We stayed here in late 2000 when they first opened and again in 2001. We camped here in a camper.
WiFi didn't work well, never could get on, but they're working on replacing with a better provider according to the manager. We stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed the pool and bath house. Pool, bath house, and laundry were very clean. Not many people were there at the time. There were some fire ant hills. They treated with pesticide, and I don't really like having to walk around with pesticides on the grass (this is more a problem with the south, rather than with this particular park). Manager was a little gruff at first, but warmed up and was very nice and actually became chatty. Would return in the winter to see how active it is then. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very disappointed in this park. Management hates their job and doesn't make you feel welcome. The grounds are very pretty. On the web site it states that the pool is heated - not! There is no Convenience store, as their web site states. The men's restroom was "out of order". The Wi-Fi did not work, and there is no cable. It seems that a lot of the people in the park are bickering among themselves. They must be full time residents. Can't wait to leave. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites are very close together, you don't feel like sitting outside with the neighbors so close, at least we didn't. Some of the RV sites are right at the side of I-75 so there is a LOT of traffic noise. If you are on the other side of the park, you don't hear the road noise. The laundry is new, the park is situated on 20 acres of scenic state forest. There is a nice pool but wide open to everybody parked around it. Nice staff, very friendly and welcoming. Five miles from Florida's biggest flea market in Webster. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located right off I-75, we stopped here on our way south. The park is very serene and the managers were extremely helpful. We enjoyed their weekly music jam, clean bathrooms, and heated pool. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here on the advice of some Canadian friends. It's a very nice park with nice facilities and has a big pool although we didn't swim in it. We would recommend it to anyone going through Bushnell. There is lots of space in the park but some of the sites we saw were a bit tight for our 45' motorhome. We will stop here again on our way north. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is horrible. The sites have no concrete just dirt. When it rains the sites flood and you are in the mud. The staff are very rude and the people that come there are clicky. The only thing that was nice is the pool. I would not recommend this park to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was actually rather nice and it was quiet. We would stay there again if our site hadn't been heavily infested with fire ants. There are no concrete pads. Anywhere sparse in grass had lots of ant nests. Since I will go into anaphylaxis shock from fire ant bites, we carry ant killer and sprinkled it around so I could get out of the RV. We saw another site with white powder all over, so we must not be the only ones to do this. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is easy to get to off of I-75. Close to the interstate but the noise was not bad at all. Actually after the first night did not even notice it. Everyone at the park was very friendly and helpful. Our A/C did not work and they have a ice machine that helped out immensely. They had someone in the park look at it for us but we had to order a part. We had to leave before the part came and they forwarded it to us. The park is very clean and well kept. They have a heated pool but we did not use it. Would stay there again if we ever have the opportunity to be in that area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park with friendly staff. The site was unpaved without any concrete slab. The spaces are a little close and only the main roads are paved. There is some traffic noise from I-75 which runs right next to the park. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There is easy access from I-75, very friendly owners, and full service sites makes this RV park a gem. They even showed me to the site that was perfectly level. Our back window faces onto a pond, and the internet was free and fast along with free cable TV. They are Passport America so the price was great value. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This seems to be a "value" campground for snowbirds. All grass sites with no particular markings. Pull-throughs are made by pulling through another site. Passport America rate and closeness to I-75 got us to stop for a night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are daily activities, weekly dinners, day trips, bikes rides, weekly bowling, occasional golf trips, daily coffees and "Happy Hours", plus dances on special occasions. There is a large fenced dog park. This place books up early for the Snowbird season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean and neat park. Very well maintained. The sites are long enough for coach and toad. No tables, but level sites. Some of the pull through sites can be a bit close. Our neighbors awning was less than a foot from our window. But I didn't notice anyone else with that issue. There is no "golf course", no putting greens. Just a chipping course. The trains run day and night. By the third night you get kind of used to it, the 3:30 AM train woke me up every night, but the husband slept through it. We were with a rally, and they were very good about keeping us parked as a group in nearby sites. The kitchen was very nice and clean, as were the restrooms. The do sell propane, but no other supplies. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Trains, trains, trains all day and night. If you play golf do not come here. The golf course does not have real greens. This campground needs some landscaping between sites for privacy purposes. This should not be classified as a resort. They advertise Wi-Fi but it is nonexistent. You can't even connect at most public buildings. Pluses are the buildings and grounds are kept very well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park. Paved roads, large cement pads on the site. Friendly people. However they advertise it as a golf and RV resort. Simply put there is no golf course. This is disappointing as that is why we go to Florida. They do have a spot that goes around the park that they call a golf course, however there are no greens,just flags stuck in the ground. We ended up leaving a week early to go to a park with a golf course. It wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't called a few times to ask about the golf and was told it was a small chip and putt course. All in all not a very good experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean and level park with cement patios, a nice pool and clubhouse and free Wi-Fi. That being said, we will never stay here again because it is almost on top of busy train tracks. The trains ran both north and south as frequently as every 45 minutes including all night long. As each train approached, they blasted the horns until they were well past the campground. Non-stop, disruptive noise. It is also odd that there is free Wi-Fi, but no cable. The "golf course" has no greens, just regular grass and runs along the edge the campground. Don't pick a site in that location if there are golfers around. The "golf course" doesn't look anything like the one pictured on their brochures. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate shown reflects a rally rate we received while we were here. . We really enjoyed this park. The staff is friendly and helpful, and everything was neat and clean. It's true that the train tracks are very close to the park, but you get used to the noise after a day or so! Would definitely stay here again if in the area......highly recommend! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were here with a motor home group rally and we got a reduced rate. This is a very nice park, and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. Immaculate landscaping and well kept. Wife used the heated pool and spa and said it was "thoroughly refreshing". Sites are very large, we had a pull through over 55 feet long. Great clubhouse and planned activities. Yes, a train runs through Bushnell and its route is only about 1/4 mile from the park. It is not unusual for parks to be next to railroads or under the airway for jetliners. We definitely will return to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My husband and I met up with friends at this park and stayed for three nights. With Good Sam the rate was $44.73 per night which is way too expensive for this park. I never got the WI-FI to work and there is no cable. The park is very clean but Busnell's only attractions is Webster Flea Market. The golf course at the park is "very" narrow and runs on the perimeter of the park around and too close to the RVs. My husband and I enjoy playing pool and when we arrived the park had Rally People there. They took over the clubhouse and the pool table, they had a banquet table up against the pool table so no guests could use it. The showers were clean but if you plan on taking a sower at night bring a flashlight. The main bathroom light is on a timer and goes out while you are in the shower. And the biggest drawback of all is the train tracks. Each train that goes by blows their horn at each crossing. You will hear that horn multiple times and also through the middle of the night. My husband and I will not stay her again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First and foremost, upon check-in, the manager, a woman, was making inappropriate comments to my husband, which made him uncomfortable. She found this funny, even after we tried to clearly show we did not. Their prices for longer stays are confusing, and generally higher than those of other parks in the area. And others all mention the train as being "not so bad", but for us, it sounded as if it was going to go through the RV. The freight trains run every 20 minutes sometimes and they blow their horn from 200 feet before the park, to 200 feet after the park and all the way in between. So if other can sleep, good on them, but we absolutely got woken up every night we were there. On our first visit last summer, the wifi was great, but we were told this visit by the manager and the wifi guy that pretty much they will not upgrade the routers and that they have Slow DSL, and are trying to get Cable. Wifi was down a lot. People get hit by golf balls, RVs get hit by golf balls. This park is something of a nightmare. Obviously we will *never* be staying here again. Terrible experience, and not a good value. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Level sites, lush grass, wide paved streets, clean, well managed, easy hook-ups, well-lit at night. Everything is nice and spotless. Train traffic is frequent and nearby but did not keep us awake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, clean and well maintained. Our only disappointment was they did not have cable and the TV antenna did not pick up any stations. Wi-Fi was intermittent, especially at night. We were in the first row and the trains did not bother us, but I sleep through lightning and thunder storms, so I'm sure it would bother others. We held rally dinners and meetings at the clubhouse and they were meticulous. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice park. Some of the nicest and cleanest bathrooms I have seen in some time. Also has a couple of very nice meeting rooms available for groups. Didn't have enough time to take advantage of all the amenities, but while walking around the property noticed a nice swimming pool and hot tub, horseshoe pits, shuffleboard courts, and what appears to be an outdoor movie theater screen. Staff was extremely pleasant and professional. While I was here the park was almost totally full and they had some issues with people that decided to extend their stay without telling anyone. But the staff was unflappable and managed to move folks around and find nice sites for everyone that needed one. Personally, the trains were a non-issue. Yes, you could hear them coming through, but the noise wasn't that bad, and I had a site near the front of the park closest to the tracks. Grocery store next door is within walking distance and just about any other store needed is less than a 10 minute drive from the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park except for the trains. Every train blows the horn four times for every cross street, and there are a lot of cross streets! Some days there are dozens of trains and there are always at least 2 after midnight. A lot of the spots at the back of the park have no grass, only sand. I didn't see anyone golfing in the whole month I was here. Everything is brand new and very very clean. If you are not a light sleeper, you will love this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great new park. We liked everything except for the train traffic 24/7. They start blowing the horn at one end of town and don't stop until they reach the other. It was very hard for us to get a good nights sleep. I finally resorted to wearing ear plugs. This is the only reason I wouldn't come back. Our price reflected a first time camper one month special rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here with a rally and were the host for our group. This park is a pleasure to stay at. The rec hall is spotless and the kitchen was the nicest we have every used at any park. We are going back next November with our group for another rally and can't wait. The employees of the park were all very helpful and pleasant. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a clean and friendly place to stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As the other reviews correctly state, this is a new campground. They are currently expanding it for the upcoming season. We stayed here for two nights on the way home. The grounds are extremely well kept, but it really needs greenery. Being new, I am sure it will come with time. The pull throughs were plenty long, but could stand to be 5' wider. They were paved with a a slab for the outside. No table. Wi-Fi very strong. No cable TV, but clear view of the sky. I have seen hospitals that aren't as clean as the restrooms and showers. I suspect in 5 years (maybe less) this will be a premier resort. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paradise Oaks is a wonderful RV resort and has all the amenities anyone could want. I gave this park a 9 only because it is still in the building stage, but they are constantly working on making this one of the nicest resorts around. We camped for a week and paid the weekly rate for summer which was very reasonable. The pool and hot tub were perfect. There are many areas where you can play cards, do crafts, play pool, or sit and talk and there is a beautiful huge clubhouse, workout room, and kitchens. There was no area that was not perfectly clean. Bathrooms and showers were very nice and spotless. The campground is across the street from railroad tracks, but they did not bother us at all and we were fairly close to them. I highly rate this campground as one of the best and would look forward to staying there anytime. The small par 3 golf course surrounding the park still needs a lot of work before you can really play golf there, but from the looks of it they will make sure it is done right. Looks like a great place to spend the winter season. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very new park. The restrooms and laundry are the nicest and cleanest we've encountered in six years of full-timing. When completed this park will probably earn a 10 rating. The WiFi worked great and it was free. They have an exercise room, library, large pool and hot tub and are conveniently located near shopping and good places to eat. The park employees were all very pleasant and helpful. As mentioned in a prior post, the resort is close to train tracks and the trains can get loud: something most full-timers have to get used to. We are looking forward to a return visit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a brand new RV park that opened in like October of last year (2009), and they were still working on completing their plans during our visit. Since the pool is set back away from sites we truly were able to enjoy the late pool hours. It sure was nice to be able to get some exercise and take a dip in the hot tub right before bed. We totally enjoyed the nice clear free wireless internet (Wi-Fi) signal that was available at our site. The park was dog friendly with restrictions on barking and leash length and such. I noticed on their website they have a dog run, but I didn’t notice it during our stay. There are nine holes of golf that will surround the perimeter of the park. Supposedly, there is a stocked fishing pond. Due to the park’s sophistication, I’m not sure if this is meant to be considered a “family campground” or not, but there was a changing table available in the washroom by the pool, so at least children are at least welcome to visit. I would call and check if I had young ones along. There are some huge trees surrounding the property, so there is some shade available. Personally, however, I would have liked to have seen more trees scattered throughout the park. And those campers who are bothered by trains may not like the proximity to the tracks. We don’t notice trains too much after like two days. Everything was brand-spanking new and we are truly excited to go back to see the final touches on the sites, golf course, the rec hall and exercise room. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I wish I could rate this park higher than 7 but it could be so much better. We stayed here 2 winter(snowbirds) so far and have great friends here from all over so we return here. WiFi is available but not free. You must sign up with separate WiFi vendor and WiFi signal strength is poor even right next to the towers. We used our cell phone data plan as well as the near-by McDonalds free WiFi. I thought the office staff was not well informed and bordered on being rude at times. Some sites are close to I-75 and have lots of traffic noise. Bushnell is a small town in a rural area so sometimes you must drive a good way for some things. On the plus side there are many activities and music jams going on at this park and most other area parks. Overall this park offers a reasonable compromise between monthly price, warmth (in winter), and activities. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here 8 days with Passport America discount. Large RV Resort with well kept facilities. Sites were large and well kept. Restaurants, ice cream shop, Wal Mart Super Store in walking distance. Many permanent campers and homes here. Easy access off of I-75. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Can't complain about a long, level, pull through on grass for the Passport America rate of $18 in February. We didn't pay extra for Wi-fi. Large dog park and lots of places to walk the dog. Very friendly folks. Clean bathrooms. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not a bad campground. Spent 1 night, arrived after hours, but there is a phone number and someone came down right away to put us on a site that was close to the hot tub as I can't walk very well. Hot tub was probably the smallest I have ever seen, and it could have been hotter. We did not find the comfort station's as we did not have a map of the campground until we left the next day. We were on our way home or we might have stayed longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were surprised that an RV park this size could be so nice. At check-in staff were pleasant, and we were escorted to our site. The site was a pull-through and very spacious with 20/30/50 electric, water, sewer, and cable TV. Everyone in the park was very friendly. The park has a mixture of permanent, long term, and transient campers. Carefree Resorts has done a nice job with this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nightly rate reflect the Passport America discount. This park is huge with a majority of it dedicated to permanent residents. The park has many big trees which make for nice shady dog walks. We had a nice long pull thru site situated with other travelers. All people we encountered were friendly and kind. The bathrooms and laundry were clean. I was able to take the dogs for an hour long walk and never leave the park or retrace my steps. There are loads of daily activities to keep you social and busy. It is easy to access the park from the freeway. A downside is that the Wi-Fi is only available for a fee from a vendor. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is now called Red Oak. Red Oak is the combination of two parks, the Red Barn and The Oaks. It is a large park that caters to day campers and snow birds. The staff was friendly. The roads are blacktop and the pads were grass. There were many activities offered during the day and evening. Cable television was included in the rates. Wireless was offered at an additional fee. We would have rated the park higher, but our site was next to the interstate. It is a Passport America park. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I believe the name has been changed to Red Oaks, combining Red Barn and The Oaks as one park. Also see the reviews for The Oaks RV Resort. This is a Carefree RV Resort park and a snowbird haven! The park was crowded during our stay. Some but not all of the sites are close but not too tight in comparison to many Florida winter destination parks. Quiet except for the traffic noise from I-75. Depending on where you are in the park, the traffic noise may not be an issue. Grass/sand sites. Cable TV available. Many activities during the winter season. Extremely nice and accommodating management. Sites vary with full shade, partial shade, and no shade. Many seasonal/permanent homes. Pleasant and friendly residents. The utility connections at some sites are a little awkward and farther away from the rig than most parks. Very narrow interior roads. Good, inexpensive, Mexican restaurant close by, Coyote Rojo. Strong signal with AT&T. Wi-Fi available through Tengo Internet. Rate reflects Tampa RV Show special, required reservations to be made at show. We would stay here again and will give this park consideration for a longer stay during the winter season next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found them to be friendly and the park was clean. People in the office were more then helpful. The only drawback was that they did not have paved sites. I will be returning next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 1 / 10 ]
This is an old rundown campground. There is no 50 amps notwithstanding the writeup in Trailer Life. The 30 amps are very poor and you frequently get readings of 90-93. The toaster or coffee pot often blows a breaker. The water connections frequently leak and the Owner refuses to correct any problems with the electric, water or any other problem. In addition, the water supply is so bad that any time you use the laundromat it turns all your clothes yellow. The office and grounds staff are rude and unfriendly as is the owner who is also very arrogant. This is an unfriendly park for kids and adults as well. Avoid this park. We camped here in a camper.
Rate reflects Escapees discount. Nice park. Sites level. Shade trees, nice roads and very friendly people. Indoor pool not open while here. Very quite and restful. Will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We paid before pulling through, which was foolish on our part. Once we started driving around, the park looked like it is falling into disrepair. Buildings needed repairs, grass was high, weeds growing around some of the long term tenant vehicles, signs old and faded. We had asked for 50 amp, but were given a site with only 30 amp. Went back to get the correct site, and asked how to get into the indoor pool. The pool is closed and the person said it would not be reopened again. No WiFi, apparently no cable, either. Since we had just barely paid, we were able to get our money back and go somewhere else. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Low price for Escapees members includes 30 amp, water & sewer hookups. Located 1.3 miles from I-75 and traffic noise can be heard, but OK for overnight. Helpful staff. Mostly open sites. Planned activities for seniors but apparently the snowbirds have mostly departed by April. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park was nearly empty, but it appears in the w,inter it is full of snowbirds. It is convenient to the National Cemetery a few miles away which is why we were here! Park was a little run down and needed some updating, but staff was friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Escapees park, but others also welcome. Large sites, lots of live oak trees, but branches trimmed so no low overhangs. Some sites have 50 amp. The first one we tried the 50 amp did not work, so always a good idea to check if this is important to you. Some sites good for satellite, but the tradeoff is that they're mainly unshaded. A cypress swamp in the rear of the property harbors mosquitoes, but county sprays, so not too bad. Very quiet in the summer. Facilities older, but very friendly staff. Convenient to I-75. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Typical of most Escapees parks, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed here for a week, and saw a few old friends and met some terrific new ones. The park is clean and well maintained. The hookups were well placed, and our site had a concrete patio, although not all sites do. The lack of cable TV and Wi-Fi were negatives for us, but our Verizon cell phones and data service worked very well. Our over-the-air antenna received 6 channels plus their sub channels, but the programming was limited with only ABC of the 3 major networks receivable. We will return here in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older park. Yes, but not run down. We spent two months here, and loved the park and people. The mangers were top notch, and the help were also. The pool heater was down for a couple days, but repaired when the part came in. The sites are level and roomy. We will be back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This feels like one of the oldest parks in the Escapees club system and it's looking and feeling older every year. It is the only Rainbow park that doesn't offer Wi-Fi and the nearest hotspot is at least 8 miles away. However, it does offer a phone line hookup in the club house for anyone who can still use dial up to go online. The indoor pool is closed because the heater is broken. There is no cable TV and we were unable to pick up any of the networks with our aerial. After we were set up we discovered that less than 10 feet from our door was an unsealed sewer manhole cover. We were only staying for one night so with threw a big mat over it to stem the stink. There were many other sites available and we couldn't help wonder why they would park us in that site. Having said all that, the people are very friendly. We've stayed here before but we'll check to see if anything has changed before we return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate is the Escapee rate without factoring in electric and propane that one uses. No Wi-Fi is an issue for me so likely would only go back to this park if I had a Mi-Fi. No cell phone service was also an issue. The park is very tired looking and needs some updating. The managers were very friendly and we had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very enjoyable park to stay in. The park is very friendly and it is always nice to visit with neighbors with similar interest in RVing. There a a good social program with games at night, and several dining opportunities during the week. The RV sites are generally well spaced. The park is in a rural setting and there is some wild-life to be seen: sand hill cranes, and an occasional owl or deer. That said, the park is still not perfect. Many of the sites have only 30 amp service. There is no cable TV, and one has to pick his site carefully, to have a clear view for TV satellite. Parking big rigs can be problematic in many of the campsites. The caveat is to scout out the campsite you are assigned, to be sure it will meet your needs. In spite of my negative comments, we enjoy our stays at this Escapee park. Have stayed here many times in the past, and will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really like this older campground. As an Escapees member, we look for parks around the US. This is similar, only larger. It has more sites and a larger clubhouse. The roads are gravel but will maintained. The grass is cut and the clubhouse and office are in good condition. The people at the front office are friendly and helpful and the neighbors at the campsite are like wise friendly. I think it comes with the territory --most Escapees folks are friendly. We can wash our rig here. The scenery is pleasant, the hook ups are fine, and the site is level. The grass is mowed and the place is tidy. Very nice way to spend a few days and enjoy this lifestyle! We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park had some of the nicest, friendliest people we have ever encountered. Even though the facilities are older, the community spirit here made this park a great place to stay. We also enjoyed all of the wildlife - there are three resident Sand Hill cranes that visit the CG. Our pull-through site was slightly unlevel; grass with packed soil. More permanent sites had a concrete pad and were back-in. Electrical was very good (124V) and water and sewer were fine. Most sites have oaks trees for shade. Bathroom was clean. Laundry room was affordable ($1.25/load) and clean. We did not participate but they have lots of daily events and activities. This is a great quiet CG and we really enjoyed our visit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here as Escapee members so we were given the lower rate plus electricity. We arrived after the main office closed and were helped by a few of the nearby RVers. Nice park but we just over night. Will return for a longer stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a wonderful older park with mature trees and many shady sites. We camped here as Escapees. There are lots of activities for adults; it doesn't seem oriented towards families and kids. Not that children wouldn't be welcome but the only activity for them would be the pool. Site sizes vary a lot; ours was a large one on a corner. All sites have paved patio areas and some have paved parking for cars. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park. We were here as Escapee Members for a month and a half. It is very homey. Some sites are not huge and rather tight, but have nice concrete patios. Some have full concrete slabs to park on. People are very nice and park workers are always busy. Does not have paved roads, but they are well maintained. Nice laundry facilities with 6 washers and 4 huge dryers. Very clean. We hated to leave. LP available. There is a charge for electricity. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely setting with lots of oak trees and grass. Very quiet. Clubhouse great with lots of planned and informal activities. Great swapmeet nearby in Webster on Mondays. EVERYBODY friendly here. Called in a water leak and they fixed it immediately. Roads old, narrow and in need of repair. Propane very reasonable. Good launch place within an hour of lots of attractions. Lots of Geocaches around. Sprint aircard worked great here at full broadband speed for Internet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Current Escapee rate is $14.50 plus electricity, a fair rate.But this is a pretty basic, rather rustic, quiet place in the country. Hard to believe I-75 is nearby. Front office guys were super nice, and friendly park residents & travelers were having food events. Grounds were lovely, with live oak, pine trees, palmetto, fruit trees, hibiscus. Too bad the mosquitoes and ants were plentiful, bad enough to make us glad to leave after 2 days. Nothing much to do here anyway, and the pool was pretty bad. No cable tv, no WiFi. Nice Library plus a modem connection. don't expect too much and you'll be okay! We camped here in a Motorhome.
An old campground with roads and sites in disrepair. Large sites with nice library ,computer area and rec room. The indoor pool was dreary and cold. Staff helpful. No tables or cable and you have to pay for your electric. For $18.00 I can stay at a first class local campground and I don't have to join escapees. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Escapee park, members get discount. Park very friendly. Park needs some work done to sites and roads. Indoor pool is great as is activity center. Quite a few sites are used as seasonal rentals. We stay here whenever in area for a few nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spotlessly clean Escapee Park. Big sites, grassy and surprisingly level. Lots of trees. A beautiful, well maintained park that we thoroughly enjoyed! Will be back here for sure! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
No WIFI, TV reception poor and no cable. Lots of trees, tight entrance and interior roads, check out site first if you need satellite access. Very friendly staff. Lots of in park activities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Older park now owned by SKPs. Great staff! Used this park as an overnight before going WDW Ft. Wilderness. Wide grassy site - indoor pool - clubhouse w/evening activities. Many snowbirds; but, always space for SKP members. Even though this park caters to FT RVers, our family felt VERY welcome. Propane fill was quick and elec was fair metered price. Will use this CG for all future launches to WDW. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an Escapee park with warm and friendly service. Sites are mostly gravel and a gravel road. Gets pretty dusty when it doesn't rain. It has a small indoor pool. Not much going on around Bushnell. Major city, Ocala, is one hour away. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for just one night while traveling around the state but would love to return here for a couple of months in the winter. The staff was friendly and we were escorted to our site. The bathrooms were clean and large, the grounds were lovely, and the entire place was very clean. The only negative was some distant road noise from the interstate - not really much of problem but you could hear the big trucks using their Jake brakes. There is a Wal-Mart just across the street. Access is easy for big rigs. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This park was large and had a variety of sites, many of which were seasonal. There were a lot of activities available including day trips arranged through the office (extra $). There were also park hosted music events (scheduled and impromptu), exercise classes, bingo, cards, quilt shows, dancing, church services. The majority of the people who stay here are retired, so there were few children around. Those who were there were likely visitors for short stays. There are 2 parks side by side, The Oaks and Red Barn RV Resort which was recently acquired by the owners of The Oaks. The Red Barn is much closer to I-75 and not as nice but is improving. The pools (3) are nice, heated, and there is a whirlpool at the one by the office. The jets were not working while we were here but the water was very warm and took the chill off. The down side to this park is that the Wi-Fi was horrible, not owned by the park, and not reliable. There was a $4 per day fee for little to no access. I guess you could go to the library at the park to get web access if you wanted to, we didn't. There is a super Wal-Mart across from the park so you can get groceries and miscellaneous other necessities without going far. Everything else is a drive to get to. We enjoyed ourselves here, would have liked a nicer site but it was OK. If I were going to stay longer than a few days, I would have liked to have more options for what site I stayed on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here a few times in the past 5 years. Always very clean and friendly. Lots of activities and they have a dinner at least once a month. Most of the campground is seasonal or long term rentals. Tends to be more retirees than younger families. Shopping is very close and there are a couple of local restaurants. Would definitely recommend a winter stay in this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Older park very well maintained. Nice park for a short stay. The park is clean, friendly
staff. The water is heavily chlorinated. The park is under powered, running electrical appliances was a challenge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
