We are headed to Florida for the winter and was wondering if anyone has feedback on the Ja-Mar Campground North, in Port Richey, Florida.
Thanks ahead of time for your help, and if anyone has a suggestion where we might stay and enjoy peace and quiet, let us know. We are in a 38' motorhome.

A friend stays there every winter, and I drove through, and it's OK.

That's the north one, as there are 2, and the north one is a little nicer.

I would stay there.

I tried to get in for 1 week but they had a 2 week minimum "to keep the heavy motorhomes from damaging the roads". Go figure.


I stayed at Sundance Lakes, and that was fine. I would go back. This one is good for a long stay also.

I also stayed at Suncoast, and I will not go back. Very tight roads, tight campsites, and the pull throughs are for very short rigs. I had to back in. Trees everywhere. The bugs come out in the afternoon and are unbearable.

We stayed at Ja-Mar one night, then moved over to Sundance Lakes just up the street. Ja-Mar is very neat and tidy, and probably good for peace and quiet. The "locals" came out as soon as we pulled in, giving us all the unspoken camp rules, and we thought it was too much for us.

Sundance Lakes had a bit of a more "festive" vibe going, and we felt much more comfortable there. We ended up staying a few weeks there and enjoyed ourselves.

We stayed at Ja Mar once several years ago. At that time they did not allow deisels. The people were friendly but the pool was very small and unheated. The traffic was so heavy on 19 that I saw more accidents in a week than I had seen in a lifetime and we winter near Orlando. Unless they had a larger heated pool and more activities it is not a place we would visit again.

We have stayed at Ja-Mar North several times and always enjoyed it. We don't care about a pool so that was not a drawback for us. If you stay there, try to get a spot on the north side of the park. More open and not tucked in amongst the park models. There are lots of activities in the park if you enjoy that kind of thing.
