I stayed at WW there a couple of years ago. There is a campground at Lady Lake also. Think it is called Plantation. Did not stay there because WW was convenient and we were just overnighting while visiting friends in the Villages. That is a cool place, we rented a place there a few years ago.

You may be able to stay in the parking lot of their sales office… they were kind to us and let us do that.

I don't remember the layout very well, but I believe it was next to one of the two main centers where they have the happy hours and restaurants, not to far from the lake. We parked at one end of the lot near some vehicles that are owned by the Villages. We had relatives with property there, so perhaps that helped.

There is a Walmart on 441/27 just 3 miles N of the original villages in Lady Lake.. Just about 6 miles from it is a brand new Campingworld that replaced the one from Ocala. There is a camping right next to it.
There also is a very big Walmart on 466 just E of 301.
Happy travels.
