The Moss Park entrance and dump fees are included in the per night camping charge. Sites #1-4 are designated Multi-family campsites. There is a maximum of 18 individuals allowed per site.

My phone/camera failed this trip hence only one photo. For a park so close to an urban setting exceptionally wild. Deer, fox squirrels, wild pigs, alligators,waterfowl,jet airliners. So that last item would be the one of two negatives. The park sits in the flight path of Orlando International Airport. Air traffic slows down around 10pm. Another negative the aforementioned alligators. Moss park used to have a lake swimming area until someone was bitten by said gator. Nice hiking trail through Split Oak Preserve, the Preserve is under threat by developers right now so hurry while nature lasts! Pro-tip Orange County parks have their own reservation website, they don’t show up on aggregators like Reserve America. This is a shame as the website is ridiculously clunky and hard to navigate, but each of the four parks have their own staff and phone number.
First time camping ideal location restrooms shower available campsite has electricity and water will definitely visit again We did have phone service two singnal for AT&T one for Tmobile!!
For years, I rebuffed my husband's request to camp here because it is only 20 minutes from home. But after we camped around the southeastern US for a few years, and found that our local friends also love this campground, it became easier for me to size it up as one of my very favorite campgrounds. Most sites are ample in size and some are even massive. Most afternoons bring a family of deer around all the sites and the playground and split oak forest hikes are fun for everyone. It's only a shame that they have closed down the lake access as there used to be a nice beach area for guests. This was our favorite activity as parents could sit in the shallows while the kids swam and wore themselves out. The closure is irrational in my opinion, but countywide. The facilities are clean and modern; parking is ample. There is some airplane noise from the nearby OIA, but other than that, it's about as close as you can be to the wilderness but still be in town. There is also a dock with boat parking if you want to bring your boat out. We love this park and would recommend it to anyone. Below, I note the month of my last visit, but we frequent this park and have been in all seasons except for summer.
This is a great little escape from the busy areas of ORLANDO. The lake is wonderful for sunset and has rowing practice sometimes. There is a little beach and plenty of walking trails.
Has great bathrooms and plenty of hiking. Close to Orlando and 10 minutes from Publix so it won’t really matter if you forget something. If you are going with a larger group, check out the multi family sites. They are basically 3 individual sites out together with one fire ring. They’re huge and all close to the bathrooms. The rangers are very…attentive so make sure to respect their rules.
Moss Park is a great hidden gem. It’s about 30 minutes to Disney. The sites are great and it’s nestled between lakes. Amazing wildlife too!
First timer car/tent camping and our stay was perfect. Deer roam happily around and your wake up call in the morning is courtesy of feisty Sandhill Cranes calling back and forth. Park and facilities were super clean. Nearby trash facilities checked and cleaned multiple times a day during our stay. I can't say how crazy it is during the summer time, but in the early fall it's a beautiful campsite to just hang out in and chill.
- Moss Park in Orlando Florida is a great camp ground for first timers. It has all Amenities. Bathroom, showers, large wash sink. Its also perfect for RV campers.
- There is a Publix conveniently located down the road for "Oops I forgot" items.
- Park beside your campsite for easy unload.
- A fishing pond with a dock. (Granted there is really no fish in it but it's nice to pass the time making the attempt)
- DO NOT SWIM IN THE LAKE! It is infested with Gators! There are warning signs posted everywhere. DO NOT BE THAT PERSON!.
- Hiking trails
- LOTS of Sand hill Cranes and a family of Deer that frequent each campsite. (Obviously fed by rule breakers, they have no fear of people)
- SANDHILLS ARE THIEVES!! BEWARE!! (Video posted of after I thwarted them from eating our food)
- I do not recommend going in the spring or summer. It was dreadfully hot.
- There is Power and water located at each site.
- My only real issue was the biblical swarm of flying roaches at sundown. In the morning SHAKE your stuff for hitchhikers.
- First time camper tip: When you arrive to the camp ask for tent set up help. They will gladly assist.
This is a small but nice park, with friendly and helpful staff. It is a little oasis in Orlando, and will forget rhat you are in the city. There is a lot of wildlife to view.
Moss park is a nice city park with a lake and lots of hiking trails and some playgrounds. It's a great place to take the family. The sites are very well shaded and they have potable water and electricity. There are bathrooms and showers.
