Hi All,

I looked in the CG Review and did not see anything posted. So I figured I would ask here, does anyone know anything about this place Riverside RV Resort Arcadia, FL Pro or Con?? The web site looks nice, but would rather hear from fellow RVers! Looking to go hear in Feb. March 2008 Thanks!!

It is rated a 5x5 star resort and in reality it is ... beautiful park, paved roads and lots of activities .... check the pet policy however as I believe there is some limitations ..... The staff is first rate. If for some reason you cant get in try Peace River Campground ... rustic but does allow pets, kids and campfires and if you have, ATVs ..... It is a real 'campground' and not nearly as resorty as Riverside. Riverside is close to Port Charlotte that has a lot of things to do. Both are close to Arcadia ... basically WalMart and Antiques!

I have spent 7 years at Riverside RV Resort. Great place, friendly and well managed. It is a true RV resort, no park models, save maybe two for staff residence. The same people return year after year, so getting a reservation can be difficult during the time period you are asking about. However, I would check back with Bonnie Elliot the manager. Things do change, cancellations, deaths, etc. I see new faces every year that have never been there before. Bonnie will almost always find a place for you for at least short stay. There are two Encore parks not far from Riverside in Port Charlotte, both often have vacancies.

Peace River Campground was once a KOA and close to the Peace River in an area that canoes and the like are OK. George (the owner) recently purchased an adjacant 100 acres that he allows four wheelers and primitive camping in (for a price). If you like campfires kids and activity and 30 amp some trees and things like digging for fossils in the river it is a nice place.

If you want a more "adult" quieter setting try Tobys (encore resort), Big Tree (carefree resort), Little Willies, Cross Creek. Craigs no longer allows dogs.

Riverside is OUTSTANDING! Getting a site is very difficult. I would call again in several weeks. There may be last minute openings. Homer made very good comments. We also have been there for 7 years. The management, facilities, and winter residents are all reasons that we return.

There are several other parks nearby that are lower cost, but do not have the amenities of Riverside.

Check rvparkreviews.com for other parks in Ft. Ogden, Arcadia, and Port Charlotte area.

http://www.lettucelake.com/ is near Riverside.

http://crosscreekrv.com/ is North of Arcadia, but has a good reputation.

With the variety of resorts and campgrounds around here you might want to let us know what it is that you all like to do or see. Feb is a bad month for reservations anywhere in Florida but not impossible.

Hi All,

Hey C Driver I would like a campground that I can have slide and awning both out, and not hit either on rig at the next site! A pool and hot tub would be nice, or at least one of them! I do not mind kids and dogs as long as they are not running all over my site, and making a lot of noise after quit hour !! Since I am going to be out for a few months Wi-Fi at site is nice but as long as it is in the campground that is ok!

First, Riverside uses satellite net so it can be very slow at times of high useage... all that being said, personnally don't think a lot of 'kids' go there ...it is really for snowbirds, etc. although they have a lot of activities like sewing classes, etc.
Peace River Campground is definitely geared toward the family with kids and pets. Sites are ok, mostly grass with some pads available but wide enough for slide and awning (let them know you have). Campfires ok ... they do have ATVs on the weekends, mostly, but after dark quiet hour is enforced .... Pool is heated and the Wi-Fi actually works pretty well at site ... they do charge but not sure how much ....
It is, keep in mind, a campground and not a 'resort' ...
Their website has a lot of photos that you can see to get an idea what the campground looks like ..... Welcome to Florida
