If you're going to Orlando or the amusement parks with kids, this is the place to stay. There's an amusement area within walking distance and Disney and Universal are about a 20 minute drive. This facility is huge, but efficiently and cleanly operated. Expect families with children. Expensive, but so is everything else around this tourist mecca. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Motorhome.

This park has a number of positives and negatives. On the plus side, the park is close to Disney. There is a Camping World nearby, as well as a Target and a Walmart. The pool is large and there are several activities available to guests. On the negative side, the rest rooms were horrible. They were never clean during our week long stay. One stall in the ladies room was roped off with a caution tape the whole time we were there and another did not have a lock on the door. This only left one working stall complete with a lock on the door. The showers were filthy. The bathroom did not have a trash can in it and the outlets were cracked and would not let you plug in a blow dryer. The campground signage is very poor and is it easy to get lost. The campground map we were given was not correct. For example, one laundry area is not even shown on the map. Several washers and dryers were torn up and were not marked which left the user guessing which ones worked and which ones didn't. Site size in the unpaved sites varies greatly. This park has enormous potential as an destination spot for visitors to the Orlando area but it desperately needs cleaning and updating. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Tent Trailer.

The price has gone up recently, but since we had paid in full with our reservation, no mention was made of the increase. This place reminds me of a flat ABC (Branson); that is, very popular (crowded), many activities for everyone, well located, and not an abundance of room. The trick to getting a good spot has always been, show up early, but starting this Sunday (Easter) sites will be assigned when reservations are made. This will take some work at this resort, as there are many, many "super sites" into which we could not fit with our 45' rig with 4 slides. Our impression of the place was that they are going to have their hands full if they don't build another pool. They have turned over about one third of the park to "park models" (at $50,000-$70,000 each), but since very few are occupied now, and the pool was so crowded as to not being able to see any concrete or water when we walked by, I'd say this facility will need some work in the future (not to mention other common facilities). It's clean, neat, and very convenient. A great place to stay if Fort Wilderness is not in your plans or budget. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Motorhome.

The place has gone downhill since new owners took over. It is still a nice enough place to stay but not like it was. Staff not as friendly or accommodating. But, it is right new to Old Town and just a short drive to the Theme Parks. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Motorhome.

Park was well suited as a base for going to Disney/Universal, but is turning into a high priced trailer park with pink and teal colored mobile homes being sold as vacation homes. This draws folks who have no empathy with RV'ers. I had problems with folks parking their SUV's in the road (RV's couldn't get by) and kids being allowed to run wild on electric scooters. I literally had to stop my rig when leaving to keep from running over one. He never saw me either! I won't be back any time soon. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We have been camping at Tropical Palms for over 12 years and we are even an honored guest. We made reservations for my sister's wedding week 6 months in advance. We only book the supersites because over the years we have had problems in other areas. Lake side is very buggy; another area floods if it rains etc. So we booked way ahead of time. When we arrived they had given our supersite to someone else and had overbooked the campground by 8 sites! We were put in the back near nothing and were very disappointed. Plus it took 3 hours to check us in. so I had to have someone come and get my Mom so the other of the bride didn't miss her daughter's bridal shower. As it is, I missed my sister's shower after driving 1100 miles! It used to be privately owned and now Encore has taken over and not doing the best job. The new manager is nice, and has been brought in to straightened it out so we will see. I would check your reservation before arriving! I suggest a supersite!

We stayed here when we went to Disney World. Upon arriving I was really aggravated. We booked a premium site but they did not give us a site number upon booking. So when we got there, there we no more premium sites available. I couldn't understand how we could not get one if that's what we booked 8 months in advance. We were downgraded but refunded the difference. The campground was OK, it had a nice pool. I would not stay there for a true camping trip, but we only stayed there at night as we were at Disney World all day. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Had reservations since September for a super site. When we arrived we were told all that was available was w/e back in the back of the park with the park models. They told us if people want to stay longer they let them & you get whats left over. Not a good way to run a campground. They could care less, very unfriendly. Has been bought by Encore so that may be the problem. Had stayed before with no problems but Will not stay there again! We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Motorhome.

This park was GREAT! Super friendly staff. We rented a Super Site, which was great. We could not unroll our awning all the way because of trees, but this wasn't a big problem. The facilities were super clean. The roads were paved, and manuverable. Many big rigs there. Watch out for the alligators in the pond. We saw 2 of them. This campground is very close to Disney, and it's a perfect location for attractions. My only real problem was the Wi-Fi. You can not get Wi-Fi unless your sitting at the pool: and even then it's slow, and spotty. You also pay for the Wi-Fi. Aside from that, I highly recommend this place. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Encore is rapidly placing "portable cabins" where RV's were when we stayed in this park last year. Remaining RV sites are short and crowded. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for 1 month, they are replacing some of the undesirable rv sites with cottages. The super sites are fantastic, but the amenities need some work. The snack shack is very $$$ and the bathrooms and bathhouses have been unimproved. Stall doors are busted or not there, and no paper towels to dry your hands (this was the entire time during our stay). WIFI worked intermittently. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Motorhome.

The park personnel were very friendly and helpful. They ride you around in a golf cart so you can pick your site. A very clean park with all amenities. Lots of tourism activities right outside the park. Would stay here again! We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Motorhome.

Well organized park. Were able to choose our site - many to choose from. Paved road sites not shaded - preferred the shaded unpaved road. Showers clean - water way too HOT. Many park models but not a detriment. Very convenient to Disney. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground overall. Nice alternative to Fort Wilderness since it was full. We were told we could have campfires when we registered, what we were not told was we would have to bring our own firepit, that was kind of disappointing. Also, the kiddie pool is not heated and was freezing, even though the temperature was in the 80's while we were there. The shuttle to Disney was nice, as was being close to Old Town. The WiFi only works near the pool and at the front desk. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Motorhome.
