Largest RV Parks

Wonder where the largest RV Park in the country in terms of number of sites is located?? We've stayed at Victoria Palms in Donna, Texas which is supposed to have 1300 sites, great fun walking around looking at license plates to see where our Winter Texan friends call home, guess I'm weird 'cause I find myself checking plates wherever I go. Surprised at how few US plates I saw while in Canada a few summers ago.
Where is the largest park that you have visited?

We look at plates also and in FL were amazed to see how many Canadians were there for the winter.

The largest RV park was an Encore RV resort in Bradenton FL. It was also the most expensive.

Glencoe Camp in Sturgis, SD. Created exclusively for Sturgis Bike Week.

1,023 full-hookup RV sites measuring a whopping 25ft x 75ft each plus over 200 acres of shaded dispersed camping.

Add to that 1,250 Picnic Tables, 160 Hot Showers, 150 Restrooms, and over 100 Water Faucets Located throughout the dispersed area campground.

Bring your own swimming pools and hot tubs - they are all allowed.

A couple of us got together and had both (14ft swim pool and hot tub) on our sites - along with the Martgueritaville maker, the ice maker to supply the Martgueritaville maker, the water fountains in the pool, the golf carts, the... well it goes on and on.

It's a pretty big place to be open for only 2 weeks out of the year! And I might add, a whopping fun and interesting time.... Motorcyclist or NOT!

Size gets complex. Number of sites or square footage???

OLFCG may have 3,447 sites but most seem limited to <= 40ft rigs.
CAMPLEX 1,700 sites seem to average around 18ft x 40ft sites...
Glencoe all 1,023 sites are 25ft x 75ft

Bring on some more monster parks!!!!

I took OP's question to be a musing not a competition. Although 25 x 75 is nice. But then again only open 2 weeks out of 52.

Although he specified "Sites", if you want to go "acreage", there is Big Bend Ranch S.P. in Texas at over 300,000 acres.

Geographic note: Florida is the southernmost Canadian province, at least in the winter.
