Our Ford F-250 King Ranch 4x4 diesel got stolen in the middle of the day from right in front of our RV at this park. This state park is NOT secure! We just purchased this vehicle and we did not drive it. Whomever stole our truck was an insider that cased the place. It is very scary to know that guests cannot feel secure here. Talking to neighbors today we found out that theft of bicycles and other items is common here. We wish we would have known earlier.

This is city owned and operated Park/Campground. This fact is significant. It is very pretty with lots of mature shade trees. The RV's are assigned space around several pods. Each pod has its own bathhouse with laundry facilities. There are pull through spots for the big motorhomes and spots reserved for the handicapped. The bathhouses for the RV's were in good shape and well maintained. The bathhouse for the tenters not so much. The bathhouse for the RV's is not very far to walk which I would recommend.
The tent area is off to one side and well shaded by mature trees. It's an area rather than sites. You pick your spot, put up a tent and place a large numbered sign by your area and you've got your spot. While there isn't any electric to plug into at the tent sites, water is provided interspersed throughout the area. Picnic tables and barbecue grills are also provided throughout.
There is a great fire ring with benches for bonfires and a great Beach volleyball court. The pool is clean and guarded by life guards. There is a lounge where you have access to WiFi and plus to charge your phones. The RVs have WiFi around their pods.
Tenters can stay for a Max of 7 nights while RV's can stay for 180. Tenters can only pay for 3 nights at once before returning to re-up. No such rule for RVs. There is a kind of second class feel to the tenters but if you overlook that (I recommend you do) you will have a great time. Staff is very nice and the park is clean.
This is a VERY reasonably priced campground with a lot of pluses. Access to an adjacent golf course and driving range. Bike trails. Walking trails. Wide sites that are very easy to pull through or back into. Immaculate laundry facilities. Short drive into West Palm Beach FL. Next door to small airport, but no flights leave over night. Quiet between 10 PM and 6 AM.
We stayed here the first two weeks in April 2018. The staff were very friendly and it was a site that was gorgeous. It had tropical flowers and plants and was right across from the pound. My grandson loved looking at and feeding the ducks and turtles. It is across the street from a massive park that is perfect for all family members. If you go to the park, make sure you see the burrowing owls. While not fancy and is clearly an older park, it’s still very much worth a visit.
Very nice KOA , clean well presented , friendly staff. The lions waking you up in the morning is really pretty cool. LOTS of local channels and good internet. It's pretty far from most everything but its really the only game in town. Very peaceful and quite. Discount tickets to Lion Country Safari which is next to campground.
Overall not bad. My tent site was near the bathrooms with the showers. During my stay only 3 people used them. Very clean. The tent site I will say was the best of the lot. What i mean is, it wasn't against a fence in the broiling sun. Had trees for shade. Wifi was non existent, the ap on my end has been down since itma. The washing machines were hit and miss. The staff and guests in my area were great. Pricing for a tent is a bit expensive though. All in all not bad.
Miami Everglades RV Resort is in the Miami area but it doesn't feel like Miami at all. They have a really nice big pool, shuffleboard, putt putt golf, arcade and walking trail. It's off the beaten path but worth the drive. The front office staff was so helpful. We arrived after an afternoon storm had blown their power. They still checked us in with now problem. We stopped here for 2 nights while exploring The Everglades on our way to Key West. Close to Miami Everglades is a fruit stand called Robert Is Here. Don't miss it!
I have been here a few times mainly to use the trails for disc golf. This park is a true escape from the hustle and bustle of South Florida life. Calm and serene park with plenty of activities to enjoy with friends and family.
Located on Lake Osborne in Lake Worth, Florida the John Prince Campground has many waterfront sites which contain both power and potable water. Being it was summertime here in Florida there were many available sites to choose from. Facilities were good amd close and the staff was extremely kind and accommodating.
Sawgrass Recreation area primary businesses are airboat tours and petting zoo, however they have a small primitive campsite at the back as well. I was trying to ride my bicycle from Ft. Laudardale to South Bay, but the head wind was so strong that I was moving at a snail's pace. Luckily, this place is conviniently located just off the state route 27, an oasis of civilization on a 30 mile strech of nothingness. the camground is only open during dry season, which is late winter.
My husband and I rented a campground flat in December. It was on the water, had a grill, electrcitiy, fire pit, tent, running water and was pet friendly. We brought our kayaks and played around. Had a lot of space to walk our dogs. It was really a great time!
cI have had a problem with campgrounds in South Florida. Either they are flat, hot, and poorly appointed or they are tree covered, glade like ambience, and buggy as hell. C.B. Smith is the former.
The tenting area is characerless, treeless, the facilities are far removed and poorly maintained, in spite of being relatively new, and not well policed.
The RV section, which I never use (I am a tenter), is more inviting. It is shaded, well kept, and visually appealing. The facilities are more accessible and well maintained, and the grounds are kept clean and visually appealing. There is easy access to water and sewerage, and I occasionally see park personel helping with hookups.
There is easy access to shopping, it is only 12 miles from the beach, and there is a multiscreen theatre for those rainy summer days. In the park there is a water park, an outside "gym", mini-golf, batting cages and driving range. There are many gazebos with tables and grills for group picnicking, There is a well groomed, paved path that winds it way through the park and a perimeter road that circles the park, ideal for bike riding.
For me, the tenting area has one appeal I can't discount. It is very close to my home. When I just want a couple of days out of the house, I can walk there.
The prices are in line with South Florida campgrounds, from $25.00 a night for primitive or "Preserve camping", an area with electric, water, better access to facilities, concrete pads and gazebos, to $40.00 for the RV area.
