We had heard that Orlando Thousand Trails is one of the nicest campgrounds in the Thousand Trails membership system. We were excited to see for ourselves what the buzz was about.
At First Glance
It has 2 pools, a hot tub, shuffleboard, put put golf, a gym, a lake, tennis and paddleball courts, basketball, fishing, club house, etc. It is HUGE, with about 800 sites. It even had its own ongoing RV Show.
The Campground and Vibe
We spent quite a bit of our free time using the campground’s amenities. We were regulars at the hot tub. It was a little chilly for swimming in the pool, but it was okay once you got in!
We met a lot of “snow birds” from Michigan (our home state) and it was fun swapping stories with them and talking about escaping the snow. Most folks we met were retired, and the Bingo hall and paddleball courts were always busy.
Everyone was very friendly (except one lady who harassed Caitlin one night while walking the dogs). There were a lot of permanent sites that were fully landscaped: some had fountains, some had Christmas light shows, and some we actual houses!
The campground is located southwest of the city of Orlando in Clermont. We didn’t go into the downtown Orlando area, but explored the surrounding areas of Lake Apopka and – of course – Disney – which was conveniently only about 20-30 minutes away. The next couple of blogs will describe these adventures in detail.
