Ok first off this park is to close to the turnpike so it was very hard for my kids to sleep. Also the place is very dirty the bathrooms need cleaning and also the internet wifi is through a 3rd party so it was impossible to get tech support. And all of the senior citizens who live here are very pushy and rude there was a lady who was in charge of bingo who acted like se owned the park. We didn't enjoy are stay and we will never come back SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GO SOMEWHERE NICER.
This park is very crowded and noisy. We couldn't sleep because it is right next to the freeway.The pool ery was very dirty and the light in the pool is broken and might shock someone. I also hate the fact that all the old pereminant residents gossip about each other and thats all we heard them do during our time there. You will have no privacy the people all just sit around and talk about other peoples business. It is also very expensive and people steal there we had two bikes stolen in one night. The owner and his staff also are very much talk about you kind of people. Plus in the back lots of the park there are alot of drug dealers and if you got kids beware there is one comfirmed child molester living there with a wife and a kid?look him up here on the florida fdle website Is this the kinda place/people you want to be near on your vacation.
Like: Close to the Rodeo arena, $15 a night for PA members
Dislike: sites are backed up to the Florida Turnpike and all you here all day and night is cars, trucks, sirens on the roadway. No sleep the two nights we spent there due to traffic noise. This is a RV Park that has lots of permanent residence. Pool is open but not sure it is heated like they say. WIFI is available, $10 for 48 horus use, we tried it, they took are money easy enough but to get connected to the WIFI was the hardest part. Says customer support is 24/7 but it is through a 3rd part carrier and we never did get connected the two days we were here. Left mesaages for the customer support and never got a call back. We will be disputing the charge on our credit card.
Check in is easy and the lady at the front desk was very sweet and comical. I asked her if she knew of the bad reviews that the park was getting due to the noise from traffic and she said no people love to stay here. I said I will see and write my review.
No sleep till around 3 am the first night and that is when after I was laying in the RV since 10 p.m. Asked other campers about how they slept and most of them said they just block out the traffic noise.
We camped here in a travel trailer, and would not reccommend staying here unless you can easily mute out noise.
Swings are very old, and that is all they have, even the check in lady said it was a small playground
we had to come to orlando to retire from chrysler and bought a rv and stayed at the ponderosa rvpark and it was very nice,well kept, and lots of activities to do at the park. we lived there 2 years and i loved the park and the friendly people who were there.
ponderosa rv park is right off the florida turnpike and it sounds like it. The noise ! from the turnpike was just to much , we were going to stay
two weeks but one was all we could take. The park it self is not bad people are nice and helpfull.
Campground is very clean and the poeple treat you great. If there is anything you have a question about someone always has an answer. Some of the lots that a lived in year round at the back of the park need to be cleaned up a bit.
