Stayed here for the month of February, which is reflected in the nightly rate. We were in the "Groves' where the sites are paved and fairly well spaced. Did not participate in any activities in the clubhouse but the schedule of activities seemed OK. Many folks return year after year and have formed friendships. Nice location right off I-95 (without the noise), but need to drive a bit to stores/restaurants, etc.
This was our second visit here and if we were looking for an inexpensive and nice RV park for the winter months this would be a prime choice because of its' weather location in the Miami area. We parked here for 3 weeks and flew out to visit family out of state for 10 days and truly were only here for maybe 11 days. However, we are full time RVers and didn't get the 'warm and fuzzy' feelings one might have at a park as we didn't get a 'connection' with any folks here who we found had already formed their 'yearly' get together. Price-wise it's GREAT; the immediate neighborhood is not so wonderful but all the shopping amenities are fairly close as are movies, golf, etc. The park itself is lovely.
We are full time RVers and sadly our schedule only allowed us just 3 short weeks here. This is a lovely park with wide sites and loads of activities with the most friendly folks we've met in a long time. Golf is adjacent and there are lots of golfing activities: for the beginner as well as the experienced. Many, many other activities daily for all folks at the lovely Rec Center. A good spot for everyone amongst the orange trees in the Wauchula, FL area. The only drawback we see is that there is not a whole lot to do in the surrounding area other than a wonderful $1.99 breakfast at a place called Paul's in nearby Wauchula. No movies, no shopping, nothing else around here: but the park itself is WONDERFUL and if you're not looking for any other amenities in the near area, this is the place to stay! Much better than any other RV park in the area BY FAR and we drove through them all!
This is now an Encore Park. Close to I-75 so noise level is high throughout the park. Sites are unpaved, broken asphalt (?) and unattractive. However, clubhouse is very nice, and park amenities are lovely. Our rate was based on a $99/week special. Good location for sightseeing/shopping; however, we would not return.
We paid for this campsite almost a year ago so I don't recall the nightly rate so I guessed at it. Only reason I gave it a '9' rating is that there are no laundry facilities which some state parks now have. Other than that, park is absolutely beautiful, there are 3 campground hosts who take very good care of it and the sites are almost all very private and spacious. We stayed in Site #25 and it was very nice. We used to think Long Key was one of the best, but this park is far superior AND much closer to town than Long Key.
Another of Florida's lovely state parks. Our site (#24) had 50 amp electric and was more than wide and long enough for our 40' motorhome. Reduced nightly rate is for Florida Senior Citizens and is a true bargain!
We stayed here for a full month; hence the reduced nightly rate. This is an excellent Class A Motorhome park and the staff is incredibly friendly. There are many RV Park-run activities; i.e., cocktail parties where you bring the hors d'oeuvres and they supply the drinks; BBQ's where they supply hot dogs and burgers and you bring a dish to share; and on and on. A 14-seat theatre shows movies once a week and they supply soda and popcorn ! This is a 10-10-10 park.
The rating of 5 was given primarily because this park contains many, many park models, some of which are rather old and we prefer parks which do not sell out to park models; therefore, upon arrival we weren't happy. But to be fair to the owners, the park appears to be well maintained and the sites are relatively large. Although we eagerly anticipated playing golf, the sheer number of people here requires that tee times be made several days in advance so we didn't bother as we'd only be here a week. The golf course looked rather small. The site which we had been assigned had some low hanging tree branches and we were unable to park there; however, the guard on duty in the gatehouse (office is closed on weekends)was very happy to drive us around and allowed us to choose another site. This campground is not our style and we will not be back even though the daily rate is very reasonable through Coast to Coast.
We stayed for a week and would have stayed on a little longer had we known the park was so nice and everyone so friendly but we had reservations on down the road. PA rate ($12.50/night or $350/month)is honored all year and allows you to play golf at their three 9-hole courses all day for $5 or for free. A real bargain. Campground hosts take their role seriously and welcome all upon your arrival and set things up for the social hours which are held Tuesday and Friday evenings under the covered pavilion or in a 2nd floor clubhouse room in the case of inclement weather. The owners attend the socials. Several excellent tourist attractions are nearby - Habitat for Humanity headquarters with their Global Village and the infamous Andersonville Prison with a wonderful POW museum. Of course, no trip to this area would be complete without a visit to nearby Plains, GA as well ! This campground should be on everyone's itinerary.
