Encore Thousand Trails park stayed on "Trails Collection" offer. Mostly permanent sites but the transient sites are good sites with concrete patio, FHU etc. Beautiful pool and hot tub and rec hall. Very friendly residents from all over the USA and Canada. - Todd Fogelberg

An OK park, however you better like trains and lots of road noise. The trains run drectly behind the park and blow their load whistle several times. Sites are very short and close together. A 38 motorhome takes up the entire site. Hookups for either power or water on the wrong side. There is a charge for water at $20.00 per 1000 gal. They advertise free Wi-Fi. You get what you pay for. While here for 3 months it was out 90% of the time. Strange there is only one shower and two bathrooms for a park this size. Mostly permanent 5th wheels that stay here year round. Many in need of replacement. I enjoy swimming and this place has an excellent huge heated pool as well as a jacuzzi. There are much better parks in the area so I would not stay here again. The rate reflects the daily rate for three months. - philipclalle

We stayed at Lazy Dazy to visit my 95 yo Dad who lives a mile away. Very convenient location. Nice staff, site was satisfactory. Since we were only there to sleep, it was just OK. Lots of traffic noise from US98 - sirens all night long. Bathrooms and showers were cleaned once in our week there & were very dirty after a few days. We chose to shower elsewhere. Won't stay again, but it served our purpose for this trip. - Trailer_Traveler

Very reasonably-priced RV/mobile home park with management on site. Well maintained with more upgrades to come. Paved interior roads with speed bumps. Grassy lots mowed short and sprayed for insert control. Centrally located clean laundry and restrooms; trash dumpster emptied often. Dump station. Keyed mail boxes available. Propane sales tank just added. Mixture of residents: parents with some children/retired persons; short and long stays. Leashed pets allowed. Extremely convenient location in north Lakeland with Sweet Bay grocery store across the street; Publix, CVS, and Walgreens very near, as well as Wal-mart about a block away. Major shopping center and Orange Bowl Lanes just south. Several golf courses nearby. Our first choice for this area. - kctylers

The campground is well maintained and clean. They cater to older people and have Bingo and music weekly. There are many shops and restaurants close including Wal-Mart and Sweetbay. We have visited the park many times and will stay there again next time we are in the area. - drea1

Unlike most people we came here for a stay and didn't leave. The best thing to happen to Tiki Village was the new Management.Just to let everyone know the park isn't going anyplace. Some of the campworkers could be more friendly, but there are enough super friendly workers to make up for them. The park offers something for everyone, even your pets. The new manager Connie, a pet lover, has added a pet park. Now our 4 legged family member have a area where they can run and play. The park offer lots of activities to keep your stay buzzing. What other park can say they have a women cave (better known as the craft shed). I would be very sure to say you would be booking your spot for next year's stay, that is if you leave. Stop by and check Tiki Village out, it is well worth your time. - regene39

In a word; noisy. Planned to stay 4 nights but left after 3. I-4 traffic 24x7, Old Combee Rd traffic, "loud pipes save lives" from one resident and annoyingly loud music from another resident who drove by. I-4 noise was so bad we didn't open the windows and used the air con instead. Saw a few people sitting outside their coaches. They looked like long termers and are probably used to the road noise. Water pressure claimed to be 90 PSI and we were warned to use a regulator. Water was out park-wide (park mx) when we got to our site, then came back on, then back off, then back on. This was within about the first 2 hrs we were there. Weren't told about the outage at check-in. Sewer pipe was below grade, so I couldn't screw my connection into the pipe. At least it didn't come out when I dumped. No cable for short stays. Long stays can order service from the local cable company. Decent number of OTA channels. Park wi-fi bumped me off 3x in 30 min at the lobby (one of the places recommended to connect). I paid for the park's Tengo and ended up wasting my money on that ridiculously slow and weak service. Tree branches are nicely trimmed away from the road. Interior roads are easy to drive, despite a few residents using part of the road as their driveway. From the registration lot, big rigs have to take a loop around to the right instead of making a too tight left. We were escorted to our site. Good spacing between sites. No dog run so folks walked their dogs on the streets. Looked like everyone was picking up after their dog. Several residents waved as we drove in and out, so it seems to be a friendly place, just way to loud for us. Next time we plan to be in the area, I will research other options. Won't stay here again, even with the PA rate. - TH travelers

We spent a month here so we observed a lot. Easy in and out. Roads are paved. Excellent office staff. Very nice, newly redone facilities. Most sites are level but grass or dirt (or mud if rains). Most sites are pretty long. Very high percent of sites have live oak trees for shade but in spring were VERY messy. We had a lot of rain and some sites were very muddy. Some sites have patio slabs which would help with mud. Road noise from I-4 ranges from very bad to just annoying depending on how far away you are (and how good your hearing is I suppose). - cwier

The front desk employees were super nice, had everything ready for us when we got there. The escort to our site was very helpful. The permanent homes were very well kept. The pool and deck were clean and nice size. Although it is close to a main road it was not noisey. The bathrooms were very clean..do need updates on some of the showers. If in that area again we will stay here. We stayed in a pull through site. - T-Ster

Nice spot for a couple nights after dry camping. Fenced dog area. Low water pressure. My wife and I ran a fireworks tent nearby for New Year's and we had been dry camping in the parking lot for 7 days prior to staying here. This was a nice change of scenery. Spaces are close, but manageable. We had 50amp FHUs, but the water pressure was low. 4 bars Verizon LTE. There is a fenced in dog area with neighboring cows. This is one of the only NON-55+ parks in the area. A little pricey for us, but they do have lower rates for longer stays. - Unknown_Normal

This is a nice park with lots of shady spots (which was nice due to the temperatures) as well as open air. There is a dog run area that Jacko and Rusty enjoyed a lot. The manager was very helpful in assisting us with the area. Facilities were clean and neighbors were very friendly. - SanAntonTravelers

Park was very nice. Quiet and friendly. Manager was very helpful with setting up and directions to local attractions. Wife came by to check on us. This park has many permanent people, and a lot of snowbirds who come back yearly. We felt safe and welcome. We will be back! - Jackie29

Campground is open to the public and located on an air museum property. Stayed in "Camp Duffy". There are numerous other RV sites available on the property outside Camp Duffy. Some are FHU, some are W&E only, 30 or 50 amp. Museum grounds are adjacent to a regional airport that has mostly propeller driven aircraft. Was not loud at all. Driving around after registration was easy. Roads are in good shape and wide enough for my dually and 40 ft fifth wheel. No fenced dog run, but plenty of open spaces to run the dog, just make sure you pick up after them. Water pressure was decent at 40ish psi. Wide open spaces so satellite was easy to dial in. If you have a 40 ft + coach, some sites are on the shorter side, so just be aware. I was there for an event, so the grounds were a bit busy. Could be a little tight if you're parked next to someone on each side. Site escort said they try NOT to put RVs right next to or behind each other...gives people room to spread out. Lots of permanent residents, but still lots of open spaces. Overall, it is a nice place. I would definitely stay here again if in the Lakeland area. MUCH, MUCH better than the RV park right off I-4 in Lakeland (behind the concrete sound barrier). There is a little bit of a drive to restaurants, but it isn't bad, maybe 15 minutes. - TH travelers

Friendly staff, pay once you get there. Reservations recommended..within short walking distance to Strawberry Festival midway. Great location. Almost didn't want to review, to keep a secret so that it would not get overcrowded or sold out.. - MPD334

.This park's lots are privately owned. Some owners here lease their sites out. Details are on the website. We have been here a month so far. Our site has the owner's lanai on it so the site narrow but not unreasonably so. The utilities on our spot are well placed and there is a separate spigot to wash your rv. Some reviewers complain about the cement facility close by being noisy. Yes, we hear it but its not extreme.There is a small airport nearby but the plane noise is not extreme. There are train tracks but its not too loud either. You hear vehicles driving on the road out front. None of these noises made our stay unpleasant. In fact, once you get accustomed to the sounds, we found it to be relatively quiet and convenient to attractions across central florida. It offers a nice heated pool, spa, billiard room, laundry, library, and club room for Monday night Bingo and weekly game and card nights. Shuffleboard is on site, stained glass, bike rides and more. The owners are friendly. We have enjoyed our stay so far. - Tammy7

Rented a space for Winter 2017/18. Pros: Emerald Pointe Rv Park is a gated, extremely, well maintained park. Owners of deeded parcels comprise an association that runs the park. The streets are immaculate and compliance to rules is striking. Cons: The park sits on a busy highway. It sits between a quarry (2,000 ft) and concrete block plant (1,000 ft) and a mile from the Municipal Airport and train track (1,000 ft). The concrete block plant is the worst. When atmospheric conditions are right there will be a constant, maddening slamming and drilling sound that often goes for days and nights at a time. We ran our hvac fan and used ear plugs to sleep. The rock trucks during the days made the ground shake. The loud sounds and rumble of tractor trailers and cars filled the days and nights. Sometimes the passing train (2 or 3 times per 24 hr period) sounded as if it was coming into the park. Flight training and sky divers contributed occasional droning sounds for hours. Contrary to being a retirement community, many owners start their days running loud tools such as leaf blowers, pneumatic tools, powerwashers, hammering, slamming etc.. There is a constant state of property improvement either erecting small buildings, lanai, ports and adding structure to park model homes and replacing driveways. To top it off, the average person here talks twice as loud as needed. As I said, this is not a quiet place to relax. - Wagonwheel

Emerald Pointe is an IMMACULATE park that caters to snow birds and full timers. You won't find a neater, cleaner, more well run park. All lots have large concrete pads for both RV and patio. Most include a shed, Lanai or port. Lots of activities and amenities available. Privately owned RV lots and park models are available to rent (by the month) or purchase. Nightly rate was quoted, based on approximate monthly rate. Excellent park to spend the winter! Free WiFi is provided only at the clubhouse but unlimited high speed is available from two local providers. - jpainter01

We stayed for 1 month for $675 which included water, septic, electric, cable, and garbage. This is 55+ community with a mixture of park models and RV's. The lots for RV's are VERY spacious and wide open with sun, and have a large concrete pad ( @50' long) at all sites. The roads within the park are paved, and are greatly used to walk or bicycle within the park. VERY clean and maintained.
Unlimited activities with tennis courts, horseshoes, pickle ball, shuffle board, community building and game room. On site laundry. Numerous daily activities with cards, poker, bingo, etc. and game nights. Swimming pool was clean. Residents and others were super friendly, and I would definitely recommend this park for long or short term stay.
Park is big rig friendly. Roads are well marked and easily manuverable.
Only negative is there is a cement plant that is at the one end of the park. VERY NOISY during the day and into evening. (They must have a 2nd shift working there.) LOTS of dust/sand from it: but it was tolerable and still could enjoy being outside.
Park empties out in early April with snowbirds heading out. - RiversedgePA

Stayed here while visiting my snow-bird brother & sister-in-law who are residents. Made reservations well in advance as there were very few sites available for short-term visitors. This campground is a snow-bird destination. Nice friendly office staff. We were parked way in the back of the property, but a nice back-in site with good 50-amp (only) power. If you are 30-amp, you'll need a dog-bone 50 to 30 amp reducer. Good over the air TV reception. Park your RV on the grass and not on the concrete patio! Your tow / Toad parks on the concrete. Plenty of activities at the campground clubhouse. - thetravelkids
