This is an older State Park as the roads in the campground are narrow. We reserved a handicap site #7! It was OK, not paved and short to get a 40' Rv backed into. Bath houses were clean. There are no sewer hookups but a dump station is available. The spring is nice and lots of things to do : canoes, kayaks, boat tour , tubing and swimming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older Florida State Park, and it shows it. Although sites are well separated, they are also eroded and it is difficult to find level parking within the site. Our friends who volunteer here say they are going to remove or renovate shower houses, which are poorly located and old, but clean. Handicap sites are to be added. TV and MiFi perform well since we are very near a cosmopolitan area. The springs part of the park has been modernized, since many people day trip to see the manatees. Boardwalks and viewing platforms are numerous. Many manatees enter the park in winter for the consistent 72* clear water. Ranger programs and river cruises are available for information. We might return after improvements are made. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paved roads around the campground. Very easy to park and setup. We purposely went in January, so that we could see the Manatee. We were not disappoint. One morning, during our 5 night stay, we were able to see over 300. There is a great paved trail from the campground to the springhead. Also, we took the boat ride and the ranger was fantastic in his explanations. The only reason I gave this park a 9 is because the Ladies Shower House and no hot water. This wouldn't be a problem in the summer. During the Winter, be prepared to wait about 30 minutes to get into the park, because of the line of folks wanting to get in to see the manatee. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is clean, but there isn't much wow factor for being a state park. There is a spring which flows into the river, and manatees do spend the winters there, we're told. You can float in the upper part of the spring run. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay at Blue Spring. Many of the sites are very shallow, and big rigs would have a problem fitting, but we did okay with our trailer. Swimming in the spring is fun and very refreshing during the hot summer. Some sort of flotation device is highly recommended. We had noodles, and they were perfect to use during snorkeling. During the weekend the spring area is very crowded, but not too bad during the weekday. Tip: they let campers stay in later than non-campers. There is a great paved bike trail right outside the entrance of the park. We saw deer and turkey while on our ride. It's about 5 miles one way if you do the loop at the end. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First impression was not very good due to an unfriendly person conducting guest check-in. He did not seem to have the right personality to meet/greet guests and it was obvious he did not like this particular job. The RV sites are at an angle to road therefore are much easier to back into. All sites are in sandy soil. We were in site #38. Sites can be tight and affect your ability to use awnings and slideouts. Very private with lots of overhead cover. Depending on the site, you may have great satellite reception or none at all. Bathrooms/showers were older but very clean. Train tracks close by and the train comes through day and night. Phone reception was good but signal was not constant. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in order to see the manatees - they were wonderful and being able to walk down in the morning to see them was great. Our site was a little too exposed but others had more trees and privacy. Utilities and dump station were fine. Bathrooms were older and needed fixing but were clean. Lots and lots of mosquito's here - come prepared. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Not for big rigs-camped in a 40' 5th wheel and could not get in 1st site due to turning radius. This campground needs grooming in the worst way. Won't be back. Great park for watching manatee and boat tour great. Angelina's for pizza and Bellini's for a great Italian of any kind. Right turn from Hwy 17 abysmally bad-ran over curb with RV once and dually truck another time. Potential of campground is immense-to bad its not utilized. Site not wide and sandy or is it level. They could do so much better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Senior resident rate shown. Double for normal rate. Our 3rd visit to a great park. Not as many manatees as last year and no bear sighted this time, but still very nice visit. There were about 8 to 10 manatees including one mama and calf while we were there. We were in site 27 and were able to comfortably push my mother in a wheelchair on the sidewalk thru the woods near site 18 and up and down the boardwalk from the spring to the St. Johns River. All sites looked good. Restrooms and showers were clean and in good repair. Have fun and enjoy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet, uncrowded campground, beautifully secluded sites. Short walk to spring and day use area. Free kayak launch on St. John river about 1 mile away: manatees abound. New bike trail runs along nearby rail line. Almost heaven! We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great park if you like wildlife and natural settings. The major attraction is the spring of course. The water is 72 degrees F all year round, and very clear, so it is popular for snorkeling, diving, and swimming. Fish, turtles, and occasionally manatees can be seen. There are boardwalks and aluminum docks along the riverfront, for easy access. The campsites are all sandy, and well separated with dense natural growth. It's a beautiful place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park.Terrific staff and volunteers. Park is crowded with day folks when Manatee here but well worth it. Really nice and quiet at night after the crowds leave. Plan on an extra day to see everything. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
One of the best parks for water wildlife. I would rate this park a 10 if there was not a train track beside the park. Every time the train goes by it blows it's horn. There is a paved bike trail beside the park. Great place to take a canoe ride in the St Johns River: many gators, birds and manatee eating in the river. The spring had over 200 manatee in it so it is closed to swimmers and canoes. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first visit to Blue Spring S.P. This is a typical state park offering the normal facility with limited campground amenities. Sites are private and the park was quiet day and night, except for the train that comes past, and it really is not that noisy. Bicycles are recommended since the swimming and boat cruise area a bit of a walk from the campground. We did have the opportunity to see the manatees, but they were on the other side of the viewing area and hard to see. The springs were actually close, and you could not rent a boat to get any closer. Bath houses are unheated and open on the top, so if the weather is cool then you are cold, if hot you will sweat. The funny part of the bath house is that it was closed for cleaning at 7 am on Saturday morning…. But none of the campers paid any attention, and the cleaning guy had to work around about 12 guys taking showers and shaving. The sites are not full hookup so almost everyone uses the bath house. Except to see the Manatees I see no reason to return to this park. The town of Orange City does not have anything to offer, and TV receptions is really bad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Blue Spring State Park is a beautiful spot but needs renovation. The sites were not very clean and really tight. The bathhouse was dirty and smelly! The train will keep you up at night! We did have the opportunity to see the manatees so that was a big plus. I am not sure that we will camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first visit to Blue Spring S.P. This was a typical state park facility with limited campground amenities. Sites range from very small to just large enough for a 30-35' camper to fit in, and have adequate room outside. Though we saw one large rig jammed in a spot, I would not recommend anything larger than 30'. Sites were very private and the park was quiet day and night. Bicycles are recommended since the swimming and boat cruise area are a little bit of a walk from the campground. There is a nice paved bike trail just outside the gates, too. The spring was absolutely beautiful and a mask and snorkel will allow you to look at all of the fish swimming below. The park gets crowded quickly with day use visitors on hot days, so weekday camping may be best. Overall, it was a pleasant stay. If you will need the bath /restroom facilities, then I would suggest choosing a site near one of the two in the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Manatees! Where else can you wake up, take a short stroll and watch Manatees in shallow clear water? Yes, many sites are unlevel. Yes, the Bath houses are unheated with open ends so when it is 26DegF outside a shower is not in the picture. The new Bike Path is paved and very nice as it goes out through the Woods. The passing Trains are no louder than passing Diesel pickups are in the CG and the Locomotive Whistles are in the distance. We will definitely stay here again. Did I mention Manatees? We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has a lot going for it. There is now, just outside the park entrance, a paved bike trail that goes to a lake. Take your bicycles. Of course there are the manatees and the opportunity to canoe and kayak. The less than desirable qualities: the habitat is scrub oak, there is little to no shade. Most of the sites are not level, be sure to take plenty of boards. The main problem we and 3 other camping units had was the noise from the trains. They run during the night and blow their whistles next to the camp. Each night we were disturbed at least 7 times, the latest at 2:20 AM. Try to camp on the West side of the campground. I don't know if this is just a seasonal problem but it is a discouraging factor for what is otherwise a nice camping experience. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park was clean, and staff was very friendly. The down side was restrooms and showers could be updated. Also they were not heated, and with open ends when the weather is cold it can be a little nippy taking a shower. Some camp sights are tight to get a big rig in and are uneven ground side to side, which a few 2x8`s will fix. Also dump station is on a hill so depending on how your tanks are built that is good or bad. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The main draw of this park is the natural springs which you can swim in, scuba dive, go tubing. Our family had a wonderful time here. Our site was very private with huge trees and a lot of shade. We also had a large tent pad which we put the picnic table on. At the time we went, there was a drought, so no ground fires were allowed. The Blue Springs was a short bike ride or walk away from the campground. There is a snack bar and rental store that sells or rents tubes, inflatable boats, snorkles, kayaks. The Springs were very busy with people who come to the park to spend the day, but the springs is so large and spread out, you did not feel crowded. The ranger told us that during the summer, they close it off to the public around 10:00 am because it gets so busy! While we were there we were lucky enough to see two manatees that were swimming around in the springs. The ranger follows them from the boardwalk to make sure people do not touch them or get within 10 feet of them. What an experience to swim with such docile creatures! Overall this campground was very clean and offered many activities for people of all ages. Our 3 young children loved it here. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground for one night the first weekend in May on our way to the Keys. It was hot and crowded. The campsite was full and the day area was packed on the Saturday. We definitely were the only ones speaking English. The day area has hiking areas and boardwalks that go to the spring. At the spring you can tube, snorkel, boat down the river to the swimming area bring your own equipment or rent it there. It is beautiful and I enjoyed snorkeling in the springs but it was over crowded. During the winter months the Manatees swim here and it is off limits for swimming, it must be very nice to see them and being cooler much more enjoyable. I believe this river runs north and the current is deceiving when you are trying to go up stream – very strong. The spring per day releases over 110 million gallons of water. The water stays at 72 degrees and being from New England the water felt warm to me but the Floridians were all complaining about how cold it is. It is not as cold as Alexander Springs where we have camped quite a few times because when you swim there you stay cold all day and it takes some time to get into the springs. One local swimmer was telling us that the springs at Blue Springs State Park are being destroyed because they don’t have showers for people to rinse off before they go in and the chemicals on the bodies are causing pollution and they let too many people use the park everyday. One girl on a raft was even smoking and you know where that butt was going to go when she finished it- could not believe it. Glad we camped here for one night but don’t know if I would return on a weekend during the hot months. I don’t think the State of Florida had enough help to manage this state park the way it needs to be done. This was our first camping in a Florida State Park in over ten years so maybe things have changed and they are directing their funds out of the parks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved Blue Springs. Clean park, friendly staff and wildlife everywhere. Only two manatees left (Rocket & Anna) in the spring, but we were glad of that. Restrooms could use a little work. We will go back soon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites are usual type Florida sites, scrub jay for trees and some shade. The entrance is a little right for larger rigs, ours was okay to get into. We were in site #13. Our rig was 25 ft in length. Springs are great. We also canoed here, they have rentals. Grocery store in park is minimal in size but has some necessities. Other grocery shopping is probably 2 miles down the road. We would stay here again to go in the springs. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park was very well maintained and the perfect place to "get away" yet still be near grocery stores and shopping. We stayed in site #3 which had partial shade and was just far enough into the loop to be away from the dumpster yet not too far in to be affected by family noise coming from the larger sites. The staff was professional and very friendly. The walk to the springs was fun, and the kids loved swimming in the springs. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our second time here. The campground is lush and natural. The entry to each site is a little tight because of the vegetation. The park is gorgeous, and interesting. We recommend the boat tour up the St. John's River as well. Will definitely be back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. When I went, the fireflies were in abundance at dusk. They even seemed to flicker in unison! I just missed the manatees, but plenty of other life to see in the crystal clear water. Note to tenters: Railroad nearby was pretty noisy all night long. We camped here in a Tent.
This was a beautiful park. The sites are very private. Each site had a picnic table and a fixed fire ring. The trees and palms were all around giving it a very wild feel. We were there when the Manatees were there so it was very exciting to see them. There are raised boardwalks that take you along the Blue Springs. You are walking through the forest and the water is so clear that you can see the fish swimming in it. Very peaceful and relaxing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here during Daytona Speedweeks, which happens to be in the middle of manatee season. The park is very nice and we saw plenty of manatees. We camped in site #15 and I think it was the largest site in the campground. Some of the sites seem very small and un-level. None of the sites are paved. Access to the St. John's River is available outside the park utilizing a sand boat ramp. While fishing on the St. John's we saw tons of wildlife, manatees included. We will definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a nice, clean, "no frills" campground. Typical of a State Park. The price is great for what you get. We stayed in site #13 which was a little sloped, but easy enough to work around. The sites are 100% sand so if you are a neat freak: be prepared for the sand. The restroom/showers are a short walk away. They are not air conditioned or heated and they have a screened opening at the top. So in the winter they can be very chilly. Too chilly to actually use! They benefits are great though. There is a beautiful spring that was loaded with manatees when we came. This is their winter home, so the spring is closed to all swimming activities from the end of October to March. There is a nice concession stand to get an ice cream and a souvenir at the park, as well as canoe rentals which were very affordable at $10 for the first hour and $5 for every 1/2 hour there after for a maximum charge of $25.00. I found this to be very reasonable, especially since you get to see tons of manatee, gators, turtles and fish. There is a huge playground, a beautiful grassy area, the Thursby House: a historical site and a few covered picnic areas here. Plenty for the kids to do. The only reason I gave this place an 8 is because the bath house was too cold to use and there is a train track running right outside of the park where trains do come by all through the night. It isn't super loud, but I did wake up every time they came by. I would camp here again though. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We had sites 49 & 50 in tents. All sites have picnic tables, fire ring/grill and water/elec. Centralized trash bins and 1 dump station in front of bathhouse. 2 old bathhouses in loops. Sites are very sandy and when we were there very dirty. I took my GS troop camping and we collected in our 2 sites 10 grocery bags of trash and my girls were still pulling stuff off the ground. We walked to the spring area and we collected 3 more bags on the trail to get there. I also own a motorhome that is 35 feet and there is NO WAY this is suitable for big rigs. In fact the website says 30 or less. I would say 25 ft or less or you won't have anyplace to park your vehicle. There is lots of underbrush between sites and the picnic area is very nice with a cold spring that the manatees come to in the winter. We were there for the manatee festival which is held in Valentine Park down the road. They have shuttle buses that transport you back and forth. The park has canoe rentals and a boat tour, cabins and a park store. There are trains that run right outside of the park about every 45 minutes all night long and the farms and houses nearby have enough poultry and dogs to keep you awake if the trains won't. I live in the area so luckily I can visit for the day but I would not ever camp here again. We camped here in a Tent.
This is a really nice place. The sites are separated with thick vegetation. The park is also gated to keep the local traffic out. We enjoyed a moonlighht hike to the spring. This is a great destination! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice back-in sites spaced far apart. Bath houses were clean and well maintained. The day use area is along the spring and stream that connects to the St. Johns River. We spent hours on the boardwalk watching the manatees, who come up the stream when the river water gets too cold. There is also a swimming area, and you can swim up to the spring. Nice picnic areas among the trees in the day use area. Lots of stores, restaurants, fast food, and a WalMart nearby. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects Passport America rate. Cons:roads in the campground are narrow and tight, the pool was not cleaned and the wifi was erratic. However, folks were friendly, the sites are reasonably level and shady. We spent a week, went to a couple of ice cream socials and had interesting conversations with the owner, Lewis. Clean up the leaves and clean the pool and I would give it an 8. It is a campground, not an RV resort. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
OK access for a 40 foot, could be better. I had to replace my transfer switch after plugging in; I don't know if it was the park or me. 30amp worked fine and so did the generator, so it was only when I was plugged into the 50amp outlet. I would look for another location when in this area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Cleanest restrooms we have seen at any campground! They had great activities planned that were family orientated and quiet. Only down side was the pool needed cleaning and the year round (rental?) occupants lodging (house/campers). They were dirty, overgrown shrubs/trees/plants and unsightly. Thankfully they are on the outskirts of the campground, up on the hill away from the general camping area. I would highly recommend staying here! Sight 8 for E&W, no Sewer, was the perfect spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Older campground with winding, narrow, dirt roads and grass, heavily treed sites. Pool is not heated and the Wi-Fi is spotty. That said, the place has a very nice feel and the owner is very friendly. Price is with Good Sam discount on Bike Week upcharge. We would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Really a nice park. The bathrooms were very clean as were the showers. They have a game room that has a pinball machine, Ms Packman, and several "For Fun Slots," a pool table, and an internet connected juke box. They have a store on site, and the prices are extremely reasonable; they do not gouge you, and they have a fair selection. Another thing that I liked about the sites is they have a cement patio on just about every site. Makes it a nice place to sit. The staff here is very friendly and helpful; they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They have an on site restaurant that serves food, just not sure what the hours are. On Monday night they have Bingo. They have a very large dog park that is fenced, and they provide a waste scooper and bags. Very well kept. If you are in the area and looking for a nice campground, I highly recommend Clark Family Campground. We will be coming back anytime we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here overnight and the facilities and staff couldn't have been better. Room to maneuver our 5th wheel into the site, wide gravelly roads, full hookups. Campground is well maintained and quiet as it is in a semi-rural area. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this park while visiting friends in Daytona Beach during the week of Daytona 500. Campgrounds in Daytona beach were charging double the normal rate, with a minimum stay. Very nice "country" campground. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our campsite was next to their pet goat pasture and the goats were good neighbors! Restrooms and showers were spotlessly clean, and everything worked. The pool was closed at the time we were there (February). They serve breakfast in the activities building on weekday mornings and it's an outstanding value for the money, in terms of both quality and quantity. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice shady park on the outskirts of the Orlando metropolitan area. Louis was on duty and provided friendly check in and even walked us and guided us into our site. Roads and site are very rustic (dirt), and some of the turns are pretty tight for a larger rig but we managed to get through in our 40' coach. Pool was closed for the winter, but the other facilities were acceptable for an affordable "rustic" campground. Lots of long term residents, but it didn't have the trailer park feel you get in some of these Florida CG's. We had a 30 amp/water only site, but since we only stayed one night that was fine. We'd stay again if in that area. Downtown Sanford is a nice waterfront town on Lake Monroe, lots of fishing and boating nearby on the St. Johns river and associated lakes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Many activities for this time of year. My only complaint is the pull thru site had a beautiful view of the dumpster and was across from the waste water treatment plant for the campground. This meant no open windows on warm days or the odor was just too much. This was only for one night that it was really bad but still keeps me from giving a better rating. The roads were not too bad considering we had about 2" of rain the night we arrived. Try to get a sight away from main office and you should have no problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the third year we have stayed here for the race and they are trying to grade the roads, but they are still very sandy and uneven. Nice friendly people that are trying very hard to make the campground as nice as they can. We will keep coming back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here last year for the race. Roads are currently being filled with old ground up asphault, which they were in desperate need of repair. Cement slabs are getting very old and many need to be replaced. Very friendly staff and they had lot's of activities during the stay (BBQ, scavenger hunt, ice cream social, etc.). I think they are trying to do what they can to freshen up the campground but they still have a lot to do. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for the Daytona Pepsi 400. Didn't expect all the sandy roads and sites on a hill. The roads are not packed down, so your wheels do sink into the sand. They have a few sites behind the office for big rigs that are on flat terrain. Everything is fairly old but clean and they leave some toys by the pool for the kids, which is nice. A note in our welcome package informed us that they are no longer going to be a KOA. Not sure if that was their choice or KOA's. I did not see any security and there is no security gate, although we felt safe. We will probably be coming back next year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground has easy access for big rigs and pull through sites. It is wooded with sandy dirt roads. The trees are cut back and do not pose problems for larger rigs. We had a concrete patio, which was nice, but we had to use the mobile satellite receiver because of trees. There is no cable t.v., and there is a small charge ($10 per week) for WI-FI. The campground is adequate for our purposes, which were to use it as a home base while we visited the many state parks in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was friendly but like the doctor, they want their money upfront. Sites are closer than I prefer but acceptable. During our week long stay, only had one RV next to us and only for one night. Most sites had adequate shade even in the winter months. I could only pull in one satellite on the dish due to the trees in this CG. The sites with the most shade are all occupied by full time "renters/snow birds" and most were new or in good condition. My biggest pet peeves were the cost and sand. I mean SAND-SAND-SAND. The sites were sand, the roads were sand. I almost got stuck going to my site. There are also tree roots running across some of the roads. They grade the roads with a tractor about every 2 days or so. They have to after it rains as the water washes out troughs in the road beds. If you do get stuck, the tractor will pull you out. For now it is the best park in the area. It is close to Deland, Deltona and Daytona Beach. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree with most all of the negative comments left by other reviewers. The water pressure was awful!! I spoke to the manager and she acted surprised to hear about it. That was obviously insincere as other reviewers had complained prior to me. There were permanent MH sites which looked rundown mixed in with us RVers. We only stayed one night on a long trip back home. We would only stay again if we had no other choice in the area. As PA members we paid half price which was the upside to our stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here during our International Rally. Site was a back in and was taken to the site from the wrong direction. It's hard to back 39 footer in, water pressure terrible, and WiFi even worst. Had to use my pump to take showers and wash dishes. Complained twice but just excuses. Site next to me the same and others throughout complained. Place overloaded with park models. Campers squeezed between these units. Residents there were rude. Will not stay there again. Need to drop the "Resort" off their logo. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Suited our purpose. Our Pug was in the Deland Animal Hospital and this was a close, very nice park, that wasn't too expensive. That being said, rate is Passport America, which is supposed to be 50% of the daily rate. We were told they take half of the "premium" rate, then add the $5 resort fee. Daily rate for a standard site is $34, which to me should have been $17 PA rate. This is the only PA park that we have been to that has figured out a way to get more than 50%. We ended up staying a week and paid $190 instead of $154 like we had figured on. Pool and hot tub were wonderful! Even though the park is right next to I-4, there was no traffic noise, no trains or planes either, yea. We checked out the comfort stations and chose to use our own facilities, I don't like the thought of "group" showers at my age. We would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here in order to visit family in nearby Deltona. The park is fairly clean and nice, but the place is built on the only hill in Florida and a lot of the sites aren't very level. Our site was fine in one of the only rows that isn't full of park models and seasonal snow birds. We had plenty of room to pull through and the utilities all worked as advertised. That said, this park isn't somewhere I'd spend any length of time. I was walking my dog one morning and one of the snowbirds asked me not to let my dog go on his next door neighbor's yard because he mowed it. I was standing there, bag in hand, and my dog had already committed to the spot. I just waved my bag covered hand at him and shrugged. Not a very friendly neighborhood. Strike one. Half of the park is actually an ancient mobile home park and some of them are complete dumps. Strike two. They charge a "resort fee" to PPA customers, even though this trailer park is hardly a resort. It's a snowbird mobile home park. Their resort fee is just a way to side step the half price camping PPA offers. They don't charge a resort fee if you're paying normal price. I wouldn't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were placed in a site that was so uneven we could never have leveled our rig. I politely asked for a new site and was offered two other equally poor sites. There were numerous other level sites available in the campground that were vacant the entire length of our stay, so that tells me they don't want repeat business. We gave up trying to use their Wi-Fi because it was so slow and unresponsive, it just wasn't worth using. They do have a dog exercise area that was well maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Since Sun RV purchased the park almost 2 years ago there are DRAMATIC improvements. SUPER helpful & friendly management & staff, new landscaping, new shuffleboard courts, new activities for everyone, revamp of mini golf-course, replacement of old concrete pads & patios, restrooms & bathhouses cleaned every day, roadwork completed, new street signs, new street lights in the entire park, sod on sites that needed it, the list could go on and on. If there is an issue it is always addressed promptly. We are snowbirds & have lived here 6 years during the winter months. Everyone here appreciates all the hard work & efforts (plus the expense) of all the improvements. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate is the daily average, based on the monthly rate, plus electricity. This park was bought out by Sun resorts in 2011…and they have made a great difference! Staff is more eager to please; the park has been really spruced up; more events. The park manager, has done a great job; recreation areas have been greatly improved. Some of the old timers were upset because they have changed policies for down payments for future visits. But with the more professional approach, it makes sense. We planned to stay for 2 months, but stayed for 4. Tengo Internet is free, but very unreliable; also, the monthly rate is for four weeks. We have stayed there for the past 4-5 years, and will go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here to be close to the Blue Springs State Park. It is close to I-4, and the highway noise is constant but not deafening. It is not far to Wal-Mart and many other services and stores. We were led to our site and enjoyed the park because of its character with hills and mature trees. The showers, bathrooms, pool, hot tub and laundry were clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The roads are paved. We had to leave earlier than expected, and there was no problem getting a refund. The price is Passport America. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean, quiet, well groomed park. Primarily a long term park (most in Florida are) they have 20 pull- throughs for short timers as well as back in mixed in with the long term residents. Most long terms are neat, some are old but clean and neat. Common areas are very nice including the pool, spa, laundry, and club house. Good cable with lots of channels. Wi-Fi drops out sometimes. Some sites have cement pads and some have shade. Rate is Camp Club USA. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is with Camp Club USA. Very friendly people at office. We asked for a site away from "little yappy dogs" and they discussed among them selves to meet our request. There are lots of long term clean looking mobiles and RVs. We just planned an overnight during travel, but decided to stay an extra night. The park is real close to Cassadaga (Spiritualist community). We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in Orange City RV Resort from November 12, 2009 until we leave at the end of the month to our new home. We had a monthly rate which was very reasonable compared to other campgrounds nearby. They also offer all amenities including upscale cable TV. We stayed while we vacationed for the winter months however, with the real estate bargains, we purchased a home in Florida. We have enjoyed our stay in the park. Previous reviews indicate difficult roadways etc and that is just simply not true if you have driving skills required for these type vehicles! There are no problem areas in the park as they generally fill to capacity each year. The roads are all concrete with most sites concrete also. The park is very well groomed! It is a mixture of permanent residents and travelers but we found no problems with that issue either. It does have a lot of Canadian visitors some of which do not speak English. They keep to themselves and were never a bother what-so-ever that I encountered. The park is very safe and quiet! They have a very nice pool, pancake breakfast for those who choose to participate, horse shoes, computers for guest in the office, and several laundry facilities. We stayed on Almond Village St and our neighbors (some of which were Canadian) were all fantastic! We had street parties and everyone enjoyed themselves! We travel all over the US and I would definitely recommend this park to anyone. The office staff is very friendly and accommodating! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I chose this campground based upon the reviews that were written, and I could not have been more disappointed. This park is predominantly (99%) permanent trailer/park homes; they are very close together and many are not well maintained. Because of this fact, the park is not designed for anything close to a big rig. The roads are narrow, winding and have low hanging branches which threaten roof appliances. You cannot get through the park safely with a tow vehicle attached. Many sites have cracked cement, and your site may simply be between two mobile homes. Some sites are so shaded that satellite reception is not possible (I overheard this from the couple next to me in the office who had this particular problem). The staff is very friendly and helpful, but they cannot overcome the crowded and shabby condition of the park. I would not stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park to stay in! The people are very friendly and will work with you if you need extra time. The spaces are wide for pull throughs and the permanent mobiles are kept up very nicely! Had a wonderful time here, will always come back. They have a lot of activities too! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are loving this park. Alot of residents, but there are still some open sites. The staff is friendly. The pool is 12 foot-deep with a hot tub and a kiddy pool. The put-put course could use some work. They also have two nice pool tables and shuffle board. There are multipule restrooms. Also they have a nice pavillion with a dock and a little pond with a swan and some ducks. Sad to say, there is no fishing in the pond, because there are some big catfish in it that like to be fed. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a large park with lots of trees. Our site was level with a nice large cement patio. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and we were escorted to our site. It is located about 30 minutes from the beach areas. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A lot of full time residents. Some of their places are trashy. I was parked by one where the conduct and language left a lot to be desired. The site was fair but the community people who live there would ruin any site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Check-in staff was excellent. They first took us to a sandy, unlevel site, but when I told them it was unacceptable, they took us to a concrete site that was level. Lots of permanent/seasonal residents who were not very sociable to “outsiders.” Not unfriendly, but not friendly. Miniature golf and shuffleboard both needed some heavy work. We stayed at a special intro rate: $149 plus electric for a month. Regular price for the site would be $590 plus electric. Definitely not worth the high price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good stop while visiting relatives, safe and clean, we had a big site but some are small, they have a lot of permanent residents. Night time is dead quiet. Will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As first time campers at this resort we qualified for the $189 a month internet special. We wondered what to expect for that $. Arrived to find a neat, well landscaped CG with friendly staff that checked us in. Another staff member led us to our requested "pull-through" site & offered assistance. Our site was at the end of a row in the front of the CG. Electric, water, phone, cable tv, & sewer hookup were within 5' of the rear of our trailer. Wi-Fi internet $30 for a month. Electric used is paid monthly. Although we heard traffic outside the park, it was not intolerable. This is a family facility with many permanent sites. Some older units. Residents, snow birds, & returning RV'ers commented that "the new management company has made improvements" & "they are trying to make this a better place." Bath & shower buildings clean, although spartan. Pool & jacuzzi clean & regularly checked. Laundry is small & busy, but all machines were operational. Propane on site. Super Wal-Mart (NO OVERNIGHTS), grocery, shopping, restaurants within 3-4 miles. Daytona Beach & Speedway 30 minutes, Cape Canaveral 45 minutes, Disney 1 hr. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good 50 amp, water and sewer connection. Remainder of park was run down with no sign of improvement. Most sites were permanent residents. Price jacked up for race week, yet no improvements jacked up for race week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
