Pleasant few days stay

We are full timers. Stopped by and stayed here on our way out of Florida at this time. Small quaint older well organized and up-to-date campground. It's limited to its amenities a small laundromat a couple of outdoor rest rooms, mail service, horse shoes and such. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and on top of things. Daytime road noise off in the distance is very tolerable. In the evenings and overnight almost non existent. Easily making for a restful nights sleep! Will be back next time through.

Very nice, quaint TT campground no

The entrance is a bit tight and tricky. The smaller of the two are for the RVs. Most sites are as snug as the road you travel on as you menuver through the park to your site. It has many of the standard amnities like laundry, shuffle board, workout room, rec hall and more. Plus it has both indoor and outdoor pools. The people throughout the park are extremely friendly down home people. The Pond has fish, turtles, ducks and even according to the sign, alligators. You will even find a park bench that overlooks a babbling Brook. All in all, our two day stop allowed us to catch-up on laundry and such as well and get a couple nights of secure, peaceful rest even though the small hyway is about 50 yards away which becomes almost silent after 10 pm.

Very peaceful

Sadly, can't bring your dog. The "right" road is a 1 1/2 mile drive(see reservations) on for the most part, smooth limestone. 20-30-50 power and fresh water at sites. We have a 34' class A and had no issues with trees. Yes two or three spots with pot holes, but manageable. Looking to sit out and listen to mostly nature, this is a great place. There is horse stalls with plenty of trails and overnight for horses. There is even a large pavilion to use or rent for gathering with a dining hall as well. See a large smoker near the pavilion as well. Has clean bathhouses / bathrooms. Camp host and fire ranger are around all day, maintaining the grounds and answering any questions. We met a few very nice travelers to boot. A sheriff went by daily on a 4 wheeler. So security is abound. Gate code you get with your reservation for the gate at night after hours. Some sites are a challenge to level, seems the park was built some time ago and the Earth's shifting has made some uneven. The dump station (with left and right dumping) and adjacent is a dumpster located as you leave.

Nice TT campground

We did not have time to check out amedities due to visiting friends. The park is big but your close to others. The lake is nice and peaceful, with areas to sit and watch wildlife and also a dock to walk out on. Very quiet at night concidering it's close to a major highway.

Spacious sites and a lake too!

A well maintained state park. Very spacious sites. With 20 feet so between sites of vegetation, you can barely see your neighbor. Walking distance of about 10 to 15 minutes from any of the sites to the Lake. Beautiful peaceful lake. As what others have said, I can see it being a bit noisy on weekends with race track down the road. Only heard one or two cars for only a few seconds, guess testing something, but you can definitely hear it. Would recommend staying during the weekday unless your here on weekends and want to see some cool car racing! Water/electric on all sites. Has a dump station and dumpsters. Showers and bathroom clean. Will be back.

Very nice and organized

They do not have sewer, but electric and water. They have a dump station and to make up for lack of sewer, behind the clean rest rooms, showers they have a row of big sinks, all clean, ready for one to do their dishes. I wish this was implemented in a lot of other campgrounds that don't offer sewage but a dump station instead. Allows for the extension of your RV sitting in one spot especially if you're there for a week or two. Ranges are very friendly and helpful. They have a constant workforce I believe of volenteers that come around and make sure empty sites are clean for the next person. Plenty of bike trails and walking trails. An outdoor amphitheater, campfire ring, playground, museum and a camp store to name a few. Oh and if you like orange creamsicle you have to try Maxwell's ice cream in the camp store delicious! We will definitely be back.

Nice dry camp spot

For the most part, very peaceful. Checked daily by State police and Rangers plus very pleasant camp host. Well worth the admission = free! Also has a big pavilion which has bathrooms near for men and women with running water. All water is not potable. There are trails to walk. Plus constant horse trailers on weekends as there is a stable to board your horses if your camping and miles of trails to ride them. Even cows next field over from the campground.

Nice

We needed a place to stay for a spell and seeing it was a trails collection, we decided to utilize it. Very clean, friendly campground. A bit of road noise, mostly during the day. At times low flying plane from a near by small airport. Best part about it, close to Arcadia where one can easily spend the day between the murals on many buildings to downtown where there are a ton of collectable and antique shops, including the "haunted" Opera house as seen on ghost hunters. There is laundry, hot tub and a heated salt water pool as well as a small pond with a gazibo to utilize on the campgrounds.

Plenty to do!

Reasonable price for so much to see, do and level clean sites. From the friendly rangers to the gravel base campsites, each with fire ring, BBQ and picnic table and full hookup, it's worth the $22 a night.

Very friendly campground!

We used this on our way back through the central area of Florida. It was also a Passport America stop. Staff is friendly and the sites are clean and level. Nice are for a sunset as well!

Love Love Love this place!

Found it using our Passport America. From perfect laid out sites, to a perfect sunset by lake Josephine, there is a lot to enjoy! Peaceful, friendly staff and nieghbors. Will no doubt go back in the future. The last hurricane has runied the dock areas and they are about to reconstruct the whole area and the layout of the new setup looks and sounds fabulous look forward to see its completion!

Will update with photos in next couple days!

Thousand trails campground

We came back to Florida to retrive our car after a 3 month stay in New England. This campground was right down the road from where we needed to conduct our business. Well orgaized, clean, friendly staff and level campsites. What you expect from a TT campground. Very laid back campground. Easy in and out yet well maintained and secure. Even though its close to the highway, the setup eliminates most nosies to give you a restful nights sleep. We spent 8 nights there. Will post some pics in a coupel days, tons of pics to edit from road trip down from New England area.

Love this Thousand Trails campground

Even though its a bit close to the highway, the park is well laid out and full level hookup sites. There is pleanty to do and see. From a stroll alone the Peace river to swimming or hot tubbing. There is an area towards the rear of the campground that host electric and water hookup with a dump station within 50 yards of the area, reason for this area not to have sewer is its prone to flooding during the rainy season. But if its in the winter, its level and far more quiet then the upper areas. All in all, a nice campground!

Quiet NE Campground

Small but well organized campground. TT members will find all th e comforts of home. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Quiet during the weekdays, picks up over weekends but not to overbearing. Sandy beach by the water has plenty of room to relax out in the sun as well as launch areas to set out in a paddle boat, canoe or row boat, all available on site. Mostly a 5th wheelers park but you can see a 34 foot class A here and there so don't fret, there is room.

Very nice TT campground

Very nice thousand trail campgrounds. Very large I believe it's 1300 + sites. We went late summer show it was becoming offseason. Most amenities close down. Pool, swimming at Lake Ontario beach, etc.. well kept campground. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. One staff member Mike told us about Salmon River Falls. We went and it is a "must see" while there. Basically 15 minutes from the campground. That is by RV as we had no toad this time. Mexico Point is another close attraction to see as well. Was first time for my wife that close to any of the finger lakes. She loves it!

Very nice Thousand Trails campground

Was our first Thousand trails site. Friendly staff and knowledgeable. Plenty of space in sites. Can accommodate many different size RV and trailers, plus tents. All sorts of activities, pool, playground and more. Close to local shops as well as bigger shops like Walmarts. Beautiful senic roads. One of the pics I posted is on hyway 44-55 coming back from New Paltz.

Was a great way to start our Full time journey.

This was our first site we hooked up to in our new RV which we are now living full time in. Very nice, quiet, safe location. Friendly staff. We did not stay but just over night as we had to travel 1400 miles within a week. But we will no doubt make sure it is on our list the next time through. Spacious sites!

Passport America stop $23 for 3 adults

Nice for a stop over

Small camp ground with plenty of space. Some amenities. Bass lake is small, but nice and the weather was beautiful so it was a nice setting as the evening feel. Fun watching all the turtles in water bobbing in and out. Nice way to end a travel day. Quiet place even close to the hyway. Friendly staff. Passport America Full hookup.

Very Nice! TT encore campgrounds

This is a Thousand trails campground so it was free. I think the regular price is $64. Full hookups, tents and cabins to rent. Pleanty to do in and around campground. Grounds has a pool, concession stand,game room, playgrounds, sports feild and more. Sites are well groomed. We had one and a babbling brook was 30 feet behind us. Great spot for morning coffee. Clean restrooms,showers and laundry. Dump stations if need and a service to come to your rig to collect waste if you don't want to move it. Local shops just minutes from campgrounds. Walmart and other bigger shops just a short drive away! Scenic Willride on 44-55 to Mohonk House and trails. We be going back.

Nice stop over

Close to 81, but hyway isn't a distraction for a good night's sleep. And we were closest to hyway then majority of campers. Friendly staff. Pleasant clean surroundings in campgrounds. Clean pool, rest rooms, laundromat. Outdoor fire pit gazebo.
