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

At the Southeastern edge of the Ocala National Forest, just outside the community of Paisley, Florida this is a well run campground. The camp host is friendly and informative. Delivery of firewood bundles to your site upon purchase, and ice is available for sale at the gatehouse. The hot showers are clean occasionally has some sand from people coming from the beach at the lake and can't rinse the floor after themselves. Very nice dish washing sink and counter between bathrooms. Water throughout the park between most sites. A few sites have water/electric. for RV'ers. The sites are spacious and shady with a large high canopy of oaks and pines. We even had an orange tree on our site with fruit. Roads are paved as are driveways to site to parking bumper. We came in on motorcycles, 2 tents 3 adults and 1 child and had a nice weekend. Quite a few other motorcycles here also tent camping. Easy ride to Daytona for end of bike week or ride through the forest rural roads. One family group adjacent was rather loud and obnoxious the first night, however 2nd night was on close watch to keep it down which they did. Voices carry easily in the quiet of the night through the trees. Beautiful park, everyone was pretty friendly and lots of families with kids. Nice beach and lake, not huge but nice. I would recommend keeping to the high side of the park as you get closer to the lake there is a definite down hill and if one of our Florida thundershowers comes through, could see how those would be in the path of the runoff. We were on site #5. We'll definitely go here again. - Full-timers

As Florida residents living in overpopulated South Florida, we love to get out of town and get back to nature. Clearwater Lake is by far our favorite place to go. Every site is shaded and private. The campground in quiet and the camp hosts are nice. There is a lovely 1/2 mile walk around the lake. It is also close to other great local natural attractions. - JamieCamper

This is a NFS campground with no hook-ups but it does have flush toilets and some open air showers. We were told that some of the showers have hot water but we did not try them. The sites were plenty deep enough for our 30 ft class A and very roomy overall although the paved parking pad is fairly narrow (Trailer Life called the sites 8 x 55 and that's pretty close if you just consider the paved part). Most of the sites are somewhat sloped front to back (or back to front). A few are pretty close to the water with nice views but you can't necessarily get to the water from the site. Staff friendly and organized at check-in, they do a great job of keeping the park and the sites raked and tidy. We stayed over President's Day weekend and the campground was full but did not feel too cramped. Many, many, many families with children enjoyed the small but nice lake and beach area. Nice campground, easy to get to from Hwy 42 with decent roads throughout. Only real negative is that the dump station was very awkward to get to if you happen to be camping in the loop closest to the day use area (sites 1-23); many fresh water spigots were available throughout the campground. - mahaffee

Great marina location on the St. Johns River not far from Blue Spring State Park! Our pull in site R27 was next to the marina basin and VERY narrow, with just enough space to open our awning. Neighbor's hookups were right in front of our door. Site had a picnic table. Other than the occasional airboat at Ed Stone Park's boat ramp and traffic going over the drawbridge right next to the park, it was amazingly quiet at our end. A little noisier with the tiki bar and often partying campers at the other (north) end. The dog park was surprisingly nice, and though we used it often, no one else ever seemed to. Not a great area for dog walking. Park is not that big, and long walks require venturing out either along a VERY BUSY highway, or through a park next door and out Old New York Avenue; very fast traffic, no shoulder, no sidewalks, tons of trash. ONYA is less traveled, but still uncomfortable. The park's restaurant is GREAT and happy hour is 3-6. Good food and awesome views with upstairs tiki bar and outside seating. Camp store sells a few kinds of beer, I was never able to use the laundry room (2w / 2d) it was always crammed. A large handful of OTA channels, great Verizon signal for JetPack. I liked the location, not far to New Smyrna or Daytona...the beaches were only half an hour away. - GeorgiePorgie

Campsites are gravel and too close together. Our Awning almost touched neighbor. Water pressure is variable, often low. There is no one overseeing park after hours to handle any issues. There is too much noise even during quiet hours due to some campers partying and playing music. Management did nothing to hanle it despite saying they would talk to offenders. One camper in medium motorhome has 3 dogs and one cat with dogs barking incessently when owners are gone. They also have one vehicle parked that does not run. There are 3 people living in it full time. It's too bad because this campground has great potential due to it's location close to the St Johns River. - Terry Friedrich

We stayed here 2 weeks in a river front pull-through. These sites are asphalt with grass between them and have a lovely view of the river. However, there is quite a slope to the back of these sites and we double blocked our rear jacks in order to get level. The big downside to these sites is that it is the access road to the restaurant/bar. The rules we were handed at check-in stated that the speed limit is 5 mph and strictly enforced. Only the campers know this because it isn't posted anywhere in the park and the bikers use this stretch as a drag strip to and from the bar. We mentioned this but who knows if they'll either post speed limit signs or install speed bumps. But, the almost constant roar of motorcycles during the day and early evening definitely negated the tranquility of being on the river. The basin sites don't have a river view but they aren't on the drag strip. They are gravel and grass and level sites. There is currently a laundry and bath facility being constructed there. Everything here is new and clean. Restaurant is pretty good with live music several nights a week. Wifi was excellent. No cable but tons of OTA stations and no trees to block our satellite. Great place to bring dogs. Lots of grassy areas to walk them. We didn't have a picnic table but there are several of them around the park. We asked if we could get one but they were out and have more on the way. The bar is closed on Monday and Tuesday and those were the best days to be here. I doubt we return because of the traffic issue. - thekites

This campground is mostly intended for smaller campers. Our site, site 6 loop A, was impossible to get into without brushing some branches. There were other sites that I believe would have been long enough for our 35 ft motorhome where the foliage was not so close, but 35 ft is probably about the max length. Although the pavement section is tight the sites are large, with grills, fire pits, picnic tables and plenty of room to set up. The spring in the day use area is clear and good for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. There are nice paths to walk around the spring. We'd camp here again but would request a different site. Weekend nights most of the campsites were in use, during the week our loop had a max or one other camper. - Bmattei

Stayed at Alexander Springs several days and it turned out to be one of our favorite stays thus far. Grounds are clean and well kept as was the restrooms/showers. They offer dishwashing rooms which were not well kept, but that's more due to users I believe. Had a tornado warning our first night there, & park crew came around to us all to warn us to take cover, directing us to a safe area. Good quality drinking water. Shaded sites. Our only complaint was each site did not have individual water spigots. - Knitwit9119

We will never go back to this place. Ever. Booked our rv site 4 months ago. Arrived today and were told one of their soon to be fired employees had decided to switch up some of the customers on the sites and she had given ours away. The people refused to move and the manager suggested calling the police to have them escorted to another site, a site they offered us but that would not accomodate our RV. When we refused this option (picturing retaliation of slashed rv tires in the middle of the night...yes, it is that kind of place) and asked to be reimbursed for our reservation fee, the manager refused. Naturally we will never return, but I don't know if we would have anyway. The sites are small and the place is trashy. We have been spoiled by Salt Springs.
Even though we ended up not staying, we did see the site we had booked and it was ok but not great. It had a concrete pad, but was surrounded by dirt. Most of the sites were narrow and could not accomodate motor homes easily. Also, there are no hook ups of any kind and only 2 of the four loops have full bathrooms with showers. - Jm12511

We were in cabin #2. There are 12 tent sites and 6 cabins available to rent. Cabins are primitive with 2 electrical outlets. Tent sites have no electricity and shared water. Most seem very small for today's larger tent sizes. There is no vehicular traffic on the island. A pontoon boat will take you from parking lot to island and then a ranger van will take you and your stuff to your cabin/site. This park is very busy on the weekends, usually completely full. There are several trails to hike/bike. Canoe/kayak rentals are available as well as excellent fishing on the St. Johns River. We found the bathroom to be very dirty and something (maybe a rat) was living in the woman's bathroom. Park was very quiet during the week, and rangers were helpful as well. Since my last visit almost 20 years ago they have added a playground and a visitor's center/museum. But the 80 ft tall observation tower was taken down 6 years ago. We also visited Blue Springs SP, about 12 miles away. It has 72 degree water for swimming and DeLeon Springs SP, with a wonderful pancake breakfast made from homemade flours ground on the premises with their mill as well as natural spring swimming. - FL Camper

We were here for two months at $730 a month. Sites are level and plenty of space for our 42' 5th wheel with our truck and my motorcycle beside our patio. Plenty of room in each site. 55+ park so it's quiet and when it's posted 10 mph, they mean 10 mph....they have a guy patrolling at night with a radar gun in his golf cart. Each site has a concrete slab, picnic table and a tree (our tree was very small). Asphalt driveways are in very good condition. Most are snow birds from the north that are there throughout the winter and then go back home in the spring and have known each other for years. Many activities but we didn't participate in those.....we were to busy exploring the surrounding areas. You are very near the Ocalla National Forest as well as being in Lake County there are many, many lakes so it's very scenic around there. An hour from Daytona Beach. - JCZ

Stayed here for 2 nights. Very nice park and will come back again. Attendant didn't know how to park us and brought us to the site backwards. Had to back in from the passenger side, to a slanted driver's side site. Not a problem for my husband who is a truck driver and there was enough room on the street to make adjustments. Used back and forth adjustments so we would not be backing over the patio. The attendant also turned on the breaker for us, telling us the breaker was on. I turned it off, as we had not hooked our power line up yet. Other than the attendant, we enjoyed our stay. They have many activities in the club house and a big library for books. Nice park with lots of friendly people and in the office. - consmith

The park is mostly one where snowbirds either own park models or have set up "camp" for the winter in their towables or motorhomes. But the park is well laid out, neat and convenient. It is not in the midst of the heavy commercialized areas. The fact that it is gated is a plus. There are many activities if you choose to participate. And it is on a beautiful lake. We liked the quietness due to it being a 55+ park. It is definitely a park we would go back to. - DGayle

We stayed at Astor Landing for the month of March. The campsite is well off the main highway and is very quiet. The catch and release pond in the center made it very pleasant. This was our first time camping in Florida so we had no idea what to expect. We encountered no ticks and no bears. Sitting on the dock each night we saw lots of alligators but none close enough to be a danger. The staff was friendly and accommodating. It would be our recommendation if you want to fish to bring a boat. We had no luck fishing from the dock. St John's River is incredible and with a boat would definitely be fun to explore. We found many things to do in the Astor area and will consider going there again. - Love the Dock

We stayed here for a week and enjoyed the adventure. Two black bears tour the park this time of the year. The folks who are staying here for a long time stick together and persuaded the bears to move on. We enjoyed watching the ducks in the pond, which is full of fish. We have a geocaching hobby. This park was just what we needed to get into the Ocala National Park and other geocaching runs in the area. Good water pressure and friendly folks. - Jim M.

This is a small, quiet park. The people we saw, including those running the park were very friendly. It is not an active park - it seems that many of the people are there for long periods of time and you don't see them very often. There is only one restroom and it can be quite a walk depending on where your site is. The woman's bathroom was cute and clean, but only one shower and two toilets. There was never a line and we were camping on Daytona 500 weekend, so that was a plus. It was an easy trip to the race and I would recommend it to someone who was just looking for an inexpensive, quiet place to stay. If you are looking for the party crowd, this is not the place! - JEG

This is a working fish camp, not a RV resort. That being said, it is the cleanest fish camp I have ever been to. The staff was extremely friendly. Rates are fair. The main focus is fishing and boating so if you don't enjoy that this is not a place for you. Very clean, rustic, old Florida charm. - toddlo

This seems to be mostly a place to live and/or a place to launch a boat. We did get a last minute reservation but I suppose that's due to the fact that it's not a destination?
We got a site next to a rusted out trailer with no wheels and TV blaring all day/night and across from someone who obviously has lived there a long time. At one point the water shut off for a while as a couple of guys shouted back and forth across the grounds to each other about how to fix it.
I think the site listed a restroom/shower facility but we never found it.
The site was just wide enough to fit our tiny trailer and park our vehicle cross ways in front of it. Not room for anything else. No trees or shade at all. - ToddAndMarge
Mar 2014 - $50.00
Rate is not the advertised rate. When we talked to them on the phone, they let us know that the price was due to Bike Week in Daytona. We took it anyway since we needed a place to stay close to friends in the area. It is very rustic and has a well stocked bass pond, but since we are not fishermen, we didn't care. They advertise "full" RV hookups. To a certain degree this is true. They have water, sewer, and electric hookups. When we made the reservations we told them 50 amp, but on arrival they gave us 30 amp. Looked like most of their RV sites are long term and some have been there a very long time. The sewer hook up was too small to handle the volume of water, and sewage overflowed onto the ground before we could shut off the valves. We had to back into our site since the people in the cabin next to us had their truck in the way and we were parked right on the road so we could not put out our outdoor chairs. We will not stay here again. - bob and phyl
