Me and my wife stayed here for three days in November in our 44 foot motor coach. This is a Thousand Trail campground. Access to campground from interstate is easy. Roads inside campground are OK. Campsite was two rows from the front. Site was grass. Ground was almost level. Had a few big trees that provided some shade but not much. Electric and water was good. Must pay extra for Wifi. The park seemed OK for a short stay, but I would not want to be there much longer. There is a bigger section farther back. Not sure if that is reserved for Thousand Trail members. The campground did not have a lot of scenic value. The sites seem too close to each other. The pool area was small and average. Interstate noise was noticeable. Garbage drop is a long walk. The person at counter was friendly. I am not sure if I will be back. Will probably try others in the area. - James Frazier

Rate reflects Thousand Trails Membership. Three Flags is our "go-to" park when traveling up or down I-75. It is ALWAYS clean, quiet, impeccably maintained and welcoming. Staff are friendly and helpful. There are two sections to the park. Front is more open, all pull-through, satellite friendly. Back offers more shade, mix of pull-thru and back-in. Interior roads in good condition. We have no trouble navigating in our 40' Class A towing. Sites are mostly open, few trees to negotiate. Our site had a concrete patio and picnic table. Ants can be a problem if it has been rainy, but nothing a little spray won't handle. In winter, there are mostly longer-term snowbirds, activities, etc. but we appreciate the ambiance of the off-season. - sunbirds

The highlight of this campground is hands down the country feel office and the super neat and clean clubhouse. Lots of friendly staff. Nice surprise to receive an anniversary towel! Nearly all the sites are open sunny grassy pads. The back area is filled with local living. My particular site was one of the only with tree coverages. The downside is that it rains in Wildwood with thunderstorms with incredible force and lightening everyday. This causes major flooding on the entire grounds measuring in at over 8" in my site daily. The pool area was incredibly clean, yet capacity is only 20 people for a huge park. Bathrooms are super old with decor from the 60's. Clean with hot water and a downside of the lighting. Lighting is on timers so BEWARE when showering. I was blacked out mid-shower and slid my way naked in the dark to the sink area where lights came on. Super scary and dangerous. Only one bathhouse for the entire grounds. Driving back and forth to pool/dumpster/showers a must. Super quiet park except the early morning grounds crew. It is ongoing early am everyday. While having coffee be prepared for loud weed eaters/mowers/leaf blowers throwing grass into your cup. Not much to do in the area. Drove an hour to Rainbow Springs and hit Silver Springs on the way home. Pay wifi available. This is definitely a few days stop if not overnite. Lots of RVs never detached. - beholdaprincess

Grass site fairly level, easy access to water, sewer and electric. We were advised to use a pressure regulator for water, and we did. However, it reduces water too much. Had very little water pressure and if someone was in shower the water in galley was nearly a trickle, same if someone flushed toilet. Staff was efficient and had our paperwork ready for us when we arrived. Good interior roads. No WiFi. Decent cell signal with Verizon and no trees on our site, which enabled us to use satellite. Didn't try their cable. A lot of traffic noise. - Vicki K

Decent park for a few days stay. The park was spacious and empty. Heavy grass with open spaces. Maintenance guy was a peach. Resort staff very accommodating. The pool area is immaculate with the best hot tub! State of the art restrooms and showers. Xfinity hotspots. Modern laundry machines. Large mobile home area and locals living in rv's. Pond area looked sketchy with alligators. Rain causes incredible flooding throughout the entire park. Close to Alexander Springs and Ocala National Forest. Traffic is constant in Eustis with many one way streets. Used GPS to navigate around. Be prepared for flooding with rain. I would stay there again for an overnight stop. - beholdaprincess

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

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

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

This is basically a long-term and snowbird park. The site was large, and it was easy to back into. The electric was in an unusual location, next to the site next-door, not obviously for our site. The wifi was not good, at our location. This park is next door to a Camping World, and very close to both Ocala and The Villages, so any services are convenient. The park was not very full, due to the season. We paid by the week. It is a nice enough park to spend a week or two in. - Chiango

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 was our third extended stay. Our favorite things about this CG are the view and the wide sites. There are two entrances to the resort, one for everything but RVs and on the other side is the RV entrance. On arrival, there is a sign with a phone number for check-in. Having stayed before, and knowing what site we reserved, we went directly to our site. Later, someone delivered an information packet. Other than that, guests seem to be on their own. The last two times we were there, all but one of the lounge chairs by the pool had wasp nests underneath. The first time, we told someone thinking they would get rid of them. The second time they were still there. Since the first time we were there, quite a few new camp sites have been added. The pull-in sites in front now block the view of the pull-thru sites. The campground used to feel more part of the shows taking place, but not as much now. Campground guests are still invited to the viewing areas however. - lce3

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 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
