Thousand Trails Orlando is far and away the largest park we have stayed at. It’s really enormous in terms of its capacity. Keeping your map handy is a good idea as the twisty network of one-way roads can be hard to navigate when you are trying to find your way. Its sheer size leads to one of the few problems we encountered. Nearly all the amenities are centrally located. Depending on where you are at, it can be a rather long walk to get there. Fortunately, they do have a lot of parking, so driving is a reasonable option if you have toad or tow.
Like many Florida parks, there is a fair bit of wildlife here. Apparently, it doubles as something of a wildlife sanctuary and you can find sandhill cranes and tortoises wandering around much of the time. At the end of the property, you can find a large lake where you can fish or go boating. Swimming is not a good idea due to the alligators.
While this is an older park, it is kept up pretty well. The bathrooms seem to have been recently re-furbished and were especially nice. Everything worked great and it was kept very clean. The large community activity center shows its age, but they had a pretty robust schedule of events considering we there on the shoulder season.
While you need to make reservations at the park, we were not assigned a specific spot and were instead given an area where we could take whatever was available. That worked out fairly well for us but your mileage may vary. I was not able to find out what the non-membership pricing for the park was. It definitely caters to Thousand Trails members. While we were there a good bit of effort seemed to be put into convincing people to upgrade their memberships. No one was pushy with us, but we got a lot of flyers and there were signs all over the campground about it.
We enjoyed our stay at Orlando Resort RV and it is a very decent park, but it doesn’t stand out compared to the best RV Parks.
