The park is located in MetroWest, an upscale popular Orlando suburb. Publix grocery along with some great conveniences (restaurants, bike shop, beauty) within a mile. The park has some wide open spaces and there are usually events to watch on the weekends. The park is nicely landscaped, but the campground itself needs some serious attention. Campers have obviously been illegally dumping grey waste making the ground soft, wet and creating a serious mosquito breeding problem within the canopy. The pads are concrete but are mostly unlevel...one of which (#5) actually caused damage to my front leveling seals. Best spots: 9 (full), 10, 14, 15, 16, 23, 20, 25, 27*, 28*, 29*, 30*, 31*, 32*, 34, 35, & 36 (all partial). (*entry directly across from each other making turning radius difficult if one is occupied). The showers are outdated residential grade and filthy. The hot water tank is small and empties quickly. The hygiene issue is due to the unprofessional cleaning service that has the (current 2014) contract. They spend five minutes inside the bathrooms and then dump the dirty mop water outside of the entrance in the dirt each morning. They did not wipe down the washer / dryers even once during my stay (yes, they close it at 4:30). I reported their poor performance to the front office staff and they were indifferent to the complaint. I should have said something to the grounds crew, as they actually seemed to care and tried to attend to issues quickly. The office staff is the real problem with this facility. No one in the office knows anything about RV'ing or even the camps' topography itself. Although a few of them are accommodating, most act bothered by the simplest of requests and can be heard physically sighing when a camper walks in the front door ("Oh no, not YOU again!"). They will blame their own frustration on the city's software...I blame it on the lack of hospitality training and poor management. Regardless of the issues above, the camp is affordable, convenient, and relatively easy to reserve spots with except for peak season. The open space to play with my agility dog made it worth returning to.

Friendly staff, nice lots. Laundry facilities could be open longer. The WiFi is only at the main office a half mile from the RV sites. Excellent playground and if you like folf there is no better place. Also the bathrooms are clean. Lots of wildlife to enjoy.
