All of the sites are grass with a concrete slab. Our slab was broke into chunks of concrete and we couldn't put out any of our mats or chairs or sit outside at all. The grass is overgrown and not kept up at all and it looks like a very run down park. Luckily it did not rain when we were there but this is probably a very muddy park when it does rain. I only used the bathroom facilities once and they were clean however my two girls and my husband used the showers and the said they were not very clean with my girls reporting dirt and hair in the showers, dirty clothes were left in the shower area and a dirty diaper. We did not use the dog park and the pool area, so I can't comment on those areas.
We were told to guarantee a pull thru we had to book an Elite site, which we did a couple of months ahead. The site was so tight it should not be a pull thru for a large RV. I had to back up several times to get straight. The site recently had construction and digging on both sides of concrete. It was so tough to walk on. In fact my wife and I both twisted our ankles a couple of times walking to our truck. Therewas a large 4 foot dead tree stump on a lot , no picnic table, and no smooth place to put our steps down. I went to the office and told them they should not be using this site and charging people and elite price.
We paid $345 for four days we paid $345 for four nights. This is an Encore property and they should be better than this. They sent me an email about a week ago asking me to pay in full ahead of time— I did not and maybe that’s why they gave me this Losi site. We have been a mini RV parks in this is the worst sight for the money we have paid by far. I will never stay here again.
One of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Rates are quite reasonable and the staff is very friendly. Close to Disney (5 miles) and lots of stores and things to do. They have Happy Hour every second Friday and camp volunteers go out of their way to help you feel at home
This was the 1st place we went with our brand new 44 foot toyhauler. OMG, we wondered is this what camping is? Did we make a mistake? If they made a project out of rv's this is what it would be. So close to your neighbor you could hear them sneeze. No grass. No campfires, no place to park your vehicle on your site. NO picnic tables. I would not go back for free. Thank goodness this was our only bad experience. Everything since then has been upgrade. There is no where to go but up when you start at the bottom.
Made reservations months in advance, gave them all the specifics (22' long truck w/camper, 1 slide out, etc.). They placed us in space # 55 which had a broken cement pad which wasn't wide enough for the truck or camper to fit on. When I called the office, I was told that pad was a picnic pad and not for placing a camper on (which was a lie - no picnic table, broken edges from previous trailers being placed there, etc.). They said I was supposed to park between the hook ups and the pad, which a compact car couldn't have fit between. Even both neighbors (one a seasonal resident with a park model and the other who had been in the adjoining space for over 6 months) said only the smallest of trailers ever used that spot and they always parked on the cement pad. So I decided to go elsewhere, but wanted to stop by the after hours "gate guard" to let her know that site 55 was completely unacceptable. When I stopped off at the gate, she said they always have "emergency" spots (i.e. spots they hold back...just in case) and they placed me in a 50 amp pull through spot (luckily I had a 30 to 50 amp converter with me). That spot was fine, but the fact that they knew the cement slab was (1) broken, (2) too narrow for my camper, and (3) the grassy area between the slab and hook ups was definitely NOT for placing any sized recreational vehicle, was unsatisfactory.
The restrooms had standing water in some stalls, the spaces were packed SO close together (thank God I didn't have a full size RV with slide outs, etc.). Oh, from the main road, there's a huge white/blank sign where their old sign used to be. If you're looking for a sign from the main road that says "Sherwood Forest RV Park" - good luck. The gate guard said one was on order. If it was on order, why wasn't a temporary sign, banner, etc. erected? The two weeks I was there, the sign never materialized. I'd bet money there's no sign on order. This place is run down and for the desperate (which we were at the time). We would never stay here again.
This is our second stay at Sherwood Forest simply because other facilities were not available at the time we made our reservation. The bath houses were in pitiful condition and the wifi signal is an extra fee. As far as a campground is concerned, it is certainly adequate and has all of the basic amenities necessary for an enjoyable stay. The resort location is in a prime are convenient to the Disney parks and a variety of restaurants, grocery, and other retailers. Having a Krispy Kreme right at the entrance to the resort doesn't hurt either! Overall, we would stay again if we had too, but I would prefer other locations.
