40 Florida Campgrounds Recognized as Top Rated North American RV Parks and Campgrounds

Ventura, Calif. – March 23, 2007 – With the release of the 2007 Woodall’s Campground Directory, 40 Florida RV parks and campgrounds were recognized as receiving the prestigious Woodall’s 5W/5W rating. The 2007 Woodall’s Campground Directory is widely recognized as having the most comprehensive campground rating system in the United States and Canada, rating more than 8,000 private campgrounds across the North American continent. Only 247 private campgrounds received the top rating.

The 40 Florida campgrounds receiving top marks include the following Fort Myers area campgrounds: Cypress Woods RV Resort, Fort Myers; Indian Creek Park, Fort Myers Beach; Raintree RV Resort North Fort Myers; and Siesta Bay RV Resort, Fort Myers.

Orlando/Kissimmee area campgrounds recognized by Woodall’s are Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Lake Buena Vista; Fort Summit KOA, Lake Buena Vista; Outdoor Resorts at Orlando, Clermont; and Tropical Palms Fun Resort, Kissimmee.

Campgrounds in Bradenton, Sarasota and the surrounding area include Horseshoe Cove RV Resort, Bradenton; Sun-N-Fun RV Resort, Sarasota; Winter Quarters-Manatee, Bradenton; and Royal Coachmen, Nokomis.

Three of the top-rated parks are located in the Panhandle of Florida, including Camping on the Gulf in Destin, Emerald Coast RV Beach Resort in Panama City Beach, and Sunset King Lake RV Resort in Defuniak Springs.

Campgrounds located in Naples receiving 5W/5W ratings are Crystal Lake RV Resort, Pelican Lake Motorcoach Resort, and Silver Lakes RV Resort and Golf Club.

Atlanta Coast facilities recognized include Flamingo Lake RV Resort, Jacksonville; Sunshine Holiday RV Park, Ormond Beach; Sunshine Travel, Vero Beach; Daytona South/New Smyrna Beach RV Park and Campground, New Smyrna Beach; The Great Outdoors RV-Nature & Golf Resort, Titusville; and Holiday Out – Venture III and Nettles Island, both in Jensen Beach.

Rounding out the list of Florida campgrounds earning 5W/5W ratings are Bay Bayou RV Resort, Tampa; Buttonwood Bay, Sebring; Cross Creek Country Club & RV Resort, Arcadia; Goldcoaster Mobile Home & RV Park, Homestead; Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort, Orange Lake; Harbor Lakes, Port Charlotte; Highbanks Marina & Campresort, DeBary; Holiday Travel Resort, Leesburg; Okeechobee Resort – KOA, Okeechobee; Outdoor Resorts/Chokoloskee Island, Chokoloskee Island; Riverside RV Resort & Campground, Arcadia; Rock Crusher Canyon RV Park, Crystal River; Starke/Gainesville NE KOA, Starke; The Outback RV Resort at Tanglewood, Sebring; and The Recreation Plantation RV Resort, Lady Lake.

Woodall’s rates all private campgrounds on two scales, facilities and recreation. Each campground receives 1W through 5W rating for facilities and 1W through 5W rating for recreation with 5W as the highest rating.

The 5W/5W rating reflects an investment in the development of parks, personnel, recreation programs and superior maintenance of a park’s facilities and recreation. “The 5W/5W campgrounds are typically the most developed parks in our directory,” said Joe Daquino, vice president and group publisher for the Affinity Group. “However, most of the other 8,000 campgrounds are also well worth a visit. Woodall’s rating system gives the consumer an independent means to gauge their expectations when they choose a campsite.”

The 2007 edition of the Woodall’s Campground Directory is available on with a fully searchable CD. Woodall’s is the official Directory of the Family Motor Coach Association, Family Campers & RVers, and Camping World President’s Club. Woodall’s also offers member benefits to the Escapees and Camp Club USA. For more information on Woodall’s and its publications, call 800-323-9076 or visit
