RV park around Orlando, FL

Looking for a RV park around Orlando for a week last week of February. My son is flying in and I have his baby stroller in my motorhome. The park needs to accommodate a 34ft MH and should be fairly decent.
Thanks for any info.

I hear Orlando S.E. / Lake Whippoorwill KOA | Camping in Florida | KOA Campgrounds is a decent campground but I haven't experienced personally. It is only about 15 minutes from Orlando International.

I own an RV lot at River Ranch RV resort in River Ranch Florida check it out online. I will start renting in the near future when we are not using. River Ranch RV association. It is a very nice resort with a lot of amenities.

Arguably, the best choice for Orlando is probably Bill Fredrick Park at Turkey Lake. There is also a decent KOA in Davenport, just off I-4 that may have room that time of year. Ft. Wilderness at Disney may have space. You will be looking for a place to stay during the height of snowbird season, so you should reserve as soon as you can.

The park that Jzick mentioned at Turkey Lake will be the best price and convenient location between Universal and Disney. the most memorable and most fun but also the most expensive will be Fort Wilderness at Disney. KOA in Kissimee is a good KOA and Tropical Palms is also decent for mid price campgrounds but IMHO nothing compares to Fort Wilderness. Florida State Parks are a good deal with full hookups, Lake Louise and Wekiva Springs are 45 minutes drive from Disney. Have fun and bring lots of money, you will need it for all the attractions.

Hi P&S,
Consider Tropical Palms. Go to Resort - Campgrounds | Tropical Palms and check it out. It is very conveniently located.

You can go to Thousand Trail in Clermont.....on Hwy27, just off Hwy192.....you would be close to Disney, and Walmart is about 3 miles from campground.

The KOA in Davenport was great, but the only reason we found we got value there was because of the free shuttle to Disney. There are less expensive options, but the park itself was nice.

I agree about Lake Louisa, spent 3 nights there in October. Not too far from Disney and is a beautiful State Park. Plenty of shopping outside the park as well. Clean baths/showers too.

Bill Fredrick at Turkey Lake (City of Orlando Park) would definitely be cheaper, $23.00 with full hookup but limited quantity of spots, KOA Orlando SE (Lake Whippoorwill) is a great place, on the lake, clean, great staff. We were there last weekend and several times over the summer. Tropical Palms also nice. As others have said, it's during the season so book in advance if possible!

We stayed there a couple years ago, very nice! This year we are staying at KOA Fort Summit for a few days. They have a free shuttle to Disney and the other parks in the area!
