We left campground. This place is not nice, way overpriced. The person who worked was extremely rude. I will never go back. - Orangelady

We enjoyed our stay here. Only drawbacks were the lack of a playground. We understand this is generally a 55+ park, but some, like us, married late and still have youngsters. No propane station. Most people here were very friendly. One particular "annual renter" enjoyed blowing dirt everywhere with a leaf blower. He did so throughout the Christmas, New Year holiday season. Couldn't eat outside because everything had a dusting of dirt all over it. Absolutely clueless this guy was. Other than that? A nice pleasant place to stay. - naknak

This park is fairly average and not what I would call a "resort". The bathrooms and showers are old and should be renovated but they did see regular cleaning. Sites are mostly grass a few had concrete pads but most did not. The grass was freshly cut and the pool was pretty nice. Located a few miles from The Villages so convenient for visiting that community. There is a front and rear section, the rear seems for longer term residents. The front section is close to the highway and road noise is an issue. We turned the AC fan on to run continually at night to help drown out the noise. There is no fence or front gate so anyone from the highway could come or go freely 24 hours a day. - Dat

Does not have a playground. Park is split in 3 sections. We stayed in the Sun section. This is not a fenced part of the park. We were put right by a very busy road. There is laundry and really nice showers. The laundry is the cheapest I've found yet. Kids loved their rec hall. This is not a park for kids though as there is nothing for them to do. If you can adventure out that is best. There was a farmers market and flea market that we went to right across the street at the fairgrounds. It had a lot of fresh produce but also typical flea market items. Bring cash. Many of the vendors do not take cards. We found this out when we went to buy apples. Our side did no have a pool,it was across the busy road. As there is no fence around the park, I felt unsafe and did not let the kids play outside as I normally would. - TravelinFam

Very large resort with sites on both sides of the road. Majority were very well kept. Huge sites. We were in a parallel site. Some trees in some parts. We will return here. - RonH999

Price reflects TT discount at Encore parks for monthly rate. We booked this stay so we could leave our rig in a safe place while we flew away for Christmas. We were in a parallel site across the street from the office, and because there was no one else around we were able to pull into it without too much jockeying. There was plenty of room for us to park our HDT at the nose of our 5th wheel, and while our front yard faced the campground road, we had a good amount of grass. Bathrooms were very clean. Close to several small towns, easy access to gas, food, restaurants, and fun things to do. - Denise and Glenn

The only way to get this rate is weekly; daily, it is $30. This is a mobile home park as well as an RV campground. There are many permanent residents and, although many of the mobile homes are nice and well maintained, quite a few of them are in bad shape. The roads are terrible, sand with giant potholes. They advertise cable TV but the only way to get it is to pay a full month ($85) plus a $40 installation charge. There was no Wi-Fi and no cell service with our phone which works almost everywhere. The laundry was a screened-in shack with no doors and no air conditioning. The only restroom/shower we could find was not in very good shape and, again, had no air conditioning. We understood that it was under new management and there seemed to be a lot of workers cleaning up but there is a lot more that needs to be done, There are many other campgrounds in this area that look much better for the same money. We would never stay here again. - SandyA

We totally enjoyed our stay at Lake Bryant. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. We were made to feel at home here. It had a great family atmosphere, and the calendar was filled with fun activities for all ages. We wish that we could stay longer. - Trisha3
Feb 2010 - $28.00
Lake Bryant is a trailer park that and falls far short of the ratings in RV reference books and the info and photos posted on the site. RV sites are scattered between badly maintained trailer homes. Street are packed sand, holes and mud when it rains and dust from the numerous golf carts and 4 wheelers used by permanent residents. The beach is there but the swimming area has grass growing in most of it. When making reservations the management will charge you the cost of your full stay (week or month) rather than a portion, and the is NO REFUND REGARDLESS. Laundry facilities are small and in a small screened in shed. There is no way we would return or recommend this to others. - Bill J

Park is pretty and quite, way off the road. Lots of horses, ponies, a lama, and wild birds. Site was level, however, grass was not cut and was ankle high. Lots of snowbirds winter, but had left before our arrival. There is a pool which looked nice but we didn't use. The park is over priced and they charge $5 per guest even if the guest just visit during the evening for a few hours and do use the facilities. - Jackhal

We have stayed here more than once at the per month rate. Our first consideration was its proximity to the many attractions in Florida both on the Atlantic and Gulf sides coupled with its competitive rates. We were looking for a shaded, friendly and safe place to stay while we bicycled, kayaked (the famous monkeys in Silver Springs just down the road). But perhaps our favorite aspect is how nice the owners are and how dedicated to providing activities for their guests. - PassingThru

The Lake in the Forest is a beautiful park. It is off of the road in a well shaded area surrounded with big trees. If you like country settings and not a concrete city, you will like this park. The owner goes out of the way to please everyone. There are activities for the kids and adults. All of the guests in the park were very friendly and did things together. Shopping and places to eat are close. When we left we felt as if we were leaving family. This was our first year there but we have already booked next year. The owner's mother is a wonderful person too. If you visit the park, be sure to say hi to the owners and the owner's parents. - Tom And Sharon

This park met all of our basic requirements as a nice park; reasonable rate, garbage pick up, dog park, cable TV, Wi-Fi and decent sized sites. It has a nice location for golfing at The Villages courses, and has many nice restaurants in the area. We had a problem with cable reception, and the staff quickly came over, troubleshooted the issue and provided us a new cable which solved our problem. I will be definitely be back here when we come back to golf at The Villages. - pikemike

This is our second year visiting this park. It is conveniently located to places of interest in the Ocala area. Shopping and other attractions all within 15-30 minutes of park. This park is primarily occupied by long term residents. Unfortunately the grassy areas of the campsites are run down because the campers/residents are allowed to park multiple vehicles at there sites which means they must park and drive on the grass resulting in killing the grass. This makes the sites and park less appealing to campers like us who enjoy having a nice grassy site to walk on. Park management does not have any rules in place to preserve the appearance and grassy areas of the parks sites. - Green is better

Just a warning to others....... Their website is VERY misleading. We needed a place to stay for a month in Central Florida. We called from the previous campground that we'd been staying at to see if they had availability. The lady on the phone said "we only have one left". Since the campground that was our first choice was already full we went ahead and booked it. She wanted our credit card over the phone. I know better than paying for a site before seen but she said it was the last one! So I gave her the credit card number which she said would be charged that day. (Absolutely no refunds)
This could be a very long story but I will cut to the chase and comment on discrepancies with their website.
Concrete pads - I don't see any. We are parked on grass that sinks when it rains.
Restaurant- There is no restaurant on site much less that delivers. There is a mini mart at the entrance. Don't expect to get your milk and bread there, but if it's beer and soda you are after you are in luck!
Beach/Swimming footsteps from your site - There is no beach on the property. There is no water that you can swim in on property unless you don't mind swimming with alligators! There is a beach that you can see from the property but you need a vehicle to get there. It is part of the National Forest system so you have to pay fees to get in.
Laundry - Yes, there is a laundry "onsite" but it sits facing State Highway 40 and has a big sign with the hours written on it (the hours on the sign are incorrect) so it is open to the public. There is only COLD water wash available.
Boats and jet ski rental (As described on the Passport America site under 'highlights') - None.
Don't bother sending an email inquiry as their website suggests. I never did get a response. I also would caution you to NOT get anything of importance sent to you here via mail. We never did get the FedEx "overnight" envelope that was sent to us. Everybody that we met that was staying here was very nice. - RunAroundSue

60 sites with most of them in full sun. Only 17 sites taken this weekend. You pay in full upon making the reservations. When you arrive you go directly to your site and set up. They'll come greet you there and give you the welcome packet. Water pressure was good, power was steady. WiFi is somewhat spotty. No cable TV but we had 8 channels on air. Large shaded dog run separated for small and large dogs. Lots of equestrian events on weekends, some big, some small. Huge facility with many arenas. The museum was closed for renovations. The Bistro was a plus, very good food. Sunday buffet brunch. There is a golf short game facility. A huge putting green with an 18 hole course set up on it. Practice sand bunker, chipping and pitching off mats to a lake. Driving range coming, again to water. Well worth the fees for the golf. We will be back. - DebDon

This is our second trip to Grand Oaks in as many years. Last year we stayed for only 4 days but this year we're here just short of 3 months. We love the nice large Big Rig friendly sites, full hookups, quiet beautiful scenery, equine activities taking place at the resort, etc. The staff is very friendly and accommodating! They have two good sized dog parks which are next to each other so you can have larger and smaller dogs apart from each others if you need to. They have a nice spa and club house where you can relax, have your hair cut/styled, swimming pool. They also have a very well tuned internet wireless network which seems to be very fast. I still work full time from our coach and was able to do not only my work remote controlling PCs and servers in the home office and around the world but also able to host/run/attend Skype meetings. We will definitely return again next year. - LabDad2

This was our third extended stay here. This time there was construction since they were added camp sites that will approximately double the size of the CG. The workers started early in the morning but they should be finished by the time we are back. It is nice seeing the horse events while staying. There is a small clubhouse, pool, and heated spa up by the CG. Down near the offices there is a pickleball court. - lce3

This is not a RV resort, it is a mobile home park, there are about 10 short stay sites 4 paved uphill and 6 flat on the grass all next to the dumpsters. No free wi-fi, but pay provider available. No dog park but several dog "walks". Golf course is par 3 no tee boxes and sand (yes sand) greens (browns) that you must rake for the next player. Nice big pool and meeting hall for Bingo, beautiful shuffle board courts. Check-in was quick and friendly with escort to my site. FHU's were new and worked well, my site was under a tree so no Satellite was available. Would stay again. - Tahoetom

Sandy lots for RVs with small yappy dogs all around you.
Wifi only in or near the office.
Received an electric bill for previous tenants, not managed well.
Couldn't get a dish TV connection. Considered buying a MH that was for sale but after several unanswered questions from the office I was approved but wasn't allowed because I have a Labrador that doesn't bark. Such a waste of time for us and the owner. Was then informed by the owner that the office play's favorites. Best to drive past this place and go to another park on 466. - Reenie

Laundry machines were all rusty. Mostly older park models. They put daily and weekly right by road and dumpsters with no screening and a noisy pump that runs most of the time. Office and computer room so small there is not room for more than 2 people at a time. WiFi does not even work in computer room. People walking and driving through sights instead of taking the road, all the time. - mountainfan
Nov 2018 - $15.00
Warning! Not a big rig friendly site! Owners very rude, no wifi, no cell service, site uneven, low trees broke my antenna. Owner was supposed to cut trees so I could leave and never did. I had to ask a neighbor to drive my truck pulling my fifth wheel while I laid on top to keep the limbs from tearing my roof! - Fulltimer__2
Nov 2016 - $14.00
Very nice owners who live on site. The grass was well kept. The sites are grass, level, with a picnic table and well spaced. The neighbors were friendly and it was a quiet campground. There was a communal fire Saturday night that was well attended by permanent and temporary campers. The only downside is the rough roads. - esta34950

We stayed in Spot 14, The owners are on site. The park is clean. The owners are real friendly people. We really enjoyed our stay. The location is quiet and out of the way, and an hour or two from the amusement parks or the beaches. I highly recommend this campground if Quiet and Serene is what your looking for.
Oh, and the Cable TV worked awesome for our entire stay. The bathrooms and laundry facilities are clean and well kept. The water pressure in the showers is awesome: "like getting a massage every morning." We will stay here again. - Jack Mac Innes

My husband and I stated here for a while in the winter months, we will never go back, the camp hosts were great, but manager made me feel really uncomfortable, he had made many sexual remarks to me, he said he had a camera on the pool at all times so he could watch the girls. When it would rain you would be in a swamp, the water would come well over your feet. Some of the others were friendly, since most of them have been going there for years. They had their own "clique" if you didn't fit into that or if 1 person didn't like you then no one would talk to you. - PennyD

Stayed Feb 2016 to April 22 2016 Clean park. Management and staff were friendly. Sites sand-grass, sunny/open to some shade, nearby to spacious lot spacing, and included a picnic table. There were several activities in the park; the park has been underrated by people that formerly resided in the park and gave it a bad rating due to their behavior in the park. Its a nice park. Good value. - E Hayward
Dec 2014 - $32.00
Would never recommend this park to anyone. Dirty bathrooms, no toilet paper, pool not open most days, manager and others in park get visits from sheriff too often, says credit cards taken but manager made us pay cash for two months in advance. Rain makes it a swampland, had to go barefoot to get to vehicle or wade in water and mud and ruin shoes. Could be great park but poor management and too much drama. - Traveler2440
