Full-time RV Families Best Resort in Florida

Updated: Mar 12, 2023

Hello Beauties! Welcome back, or if you are new here thanks for visiting!

My family and I started traveling in the midst of the 2020 covid pandemic and have been exploring the USA ultimately having the freedom to do anything we desired. We have stayed in private campgrounds, Regional State parks and even went boondocking a few times. Living in a RV full time has brought us so many new adventures we have never even thought of before. I want to share with you where you can take your very own RV, camper van or even tent camp around the USA.

Join us on our adventures in the beautiful sunshine state, Florida. This state is extremely popular in the winter months as most of you probably already know. If you want to visit Florida in the winter, well you better start planning now! One very fun and family friendly RV Resort we have stayed in, is Peace River RV & Camping Resort Thousand Trails (TT).

This Resort is located in Wauchula Florida, southeast of Tampa. This resort is one of the most popular places to stay in Florida that is a thousand trails. Orlando RV Resort TT is another huge popular place to stay especially if you have a family. In this article I will be going over cost, amenities, cleanliness, ease of access, services, things to do around the area, and why would you want to go there.

``I know it is a little unnerving picking out a campground when you don’t know the area or the campground very well. I do a lot of research before I reserve a spot. I hope to share this information to help you gain more confidence in choosing a place to visit and make it as stress free as possible. Always read Google reviews and look up their website too. I hope you enjoy, as always travel long, travel happy!

Peace River TT is a little difficult describing cost, because some of you might have a Thousand Trails membership, which there are quite a few options in their tier membership system. Others like us, do not have a TT membership. If you are a member your mind is probably blowing up right now. In all honesty, we heard about TT memberships, and we decided against it for many reasons. Although we were determined to stay in FL most of the winter, it was one of the only options we had with very little planning ahead. So, we bit the bullet and forked over retail cost for a site. The average cost for us to stay there for 33 nights is $64 per night. In the end, it probably was not worth it but due to us needing a spot for a longer period of time it had to be done. I would definitely suggest planning ahead for a TT resort and have some kind of membership to help with the cost. We have learned our lesson the hard way, and will be changing things up for next winter.

Now that we got that out of the way, the resort was very inviting and there were a ton of families with kids running around all over the park. It was great! Our kids met so many new friends and had so much outdoor time. They provided all sorts of activities to do and had an entire event calendar booked with activities for kids and adults. Some activities and things to do in the park is a pool, hot tub (under construction while we were there), pickle ball, playground, mini golf, trails, river to go floating or dig for shark teeth. Plenty to keep us occupied during our stay. They sometimes have live entertainment, events, bingo and more. Keep updated on events on their Facebook Page.

Checking into a park like this is a little different from other parks. The majority of the RV sites are 30 AMP electricity and water. During check-in you have the option to get on the list for a 50-AMP full hook-up with sewer site, which is a lottery system. It was pretty confusing when we checked in because lottery usually happens an hour or two after check-in time which is noon. Check out is 11, so I’m assuming it is just a waiting game to see what sites open up. There are 460 sites to choose from. After check-in hopefully all of this will be explained to you, but you go and chose a 30 AMP site that you want and then you will let the office know what site number you have chosen and you either stay there or see if you win a 50-AMP site and move sites.

With such a big park and so many people around, they did a really good job of keeping the park clean. We used our own shower, bathroom, and laundry but it looked to be in really good order. The Facebook group keeps everyone updated when things break or to enforce rules. I liked that the resort offers a honey wagon service to all the 30 AMP sites, which makes things stress free and cleaner while camping. The park felt very safe with entrance gates and being tucked away right off the highway. Ease of access through the campground roads are pretty tight, but the sites can accommodate all RV sizes.

Things to do near the campground are limited, but there is a little museum and wildlife refuge at Pioneer Park. There are a few small towns surrounding the Resort which offers a Walmart, a variety of restaurants and small shops. Sebring, FL is about a half an hour away which has a larger variety of stores that you have access to. Now with a drive to Tampa and surrounding cities there are so many more entertainment options and beaches to go to. The Florida Aquarium, nature centers, Solomon’s Castle, Sarasota Jungle Gardens and so many beach fronts to spend time out exploring and relaxing. So, there are a lot more things to do surrounding Peace River Resort to make it worth the trip. While in the car I found this fun game to entertain my kids one a long car ride.

I hope you have gained some knowledge about this popular Peace River Camping Resort, we certainly loved making like-minded friends and adventuring around the beautiful sunshine state Florida. Although it was very expensive to stay here without a Thousand Trails membership, we were glad we made it work out. I want to rate this campground a 7/10 for all the activities to do inside the park and with a drive to see so much more. I would suggest really looking into a thousand trails membership if you are thinking of staying here or any other Thousand Trails Resorts in Florida to help with the cost, but always be mindful what you sign up for. Thank you so much for reading this article, I hope you have a wonderful day!
