The Best 55-Plus RV Parks in Florida

Florida is a big state, and there is plenty you will want to see while you’re down here. With the following 55-plus RV parks in Florida, you can plan the perfect cross-state RV trip that will take you from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic and the Panhandle to the Keys.

1. Willow Lakes RV Park & Golf Resort

The Willow Lakes RV Park & Golf Resort is a gated 55-plus RV park in Titusville, Florida, around half an hour away from Orlando. This one is going to be a hit with avid golfers — there’s a gorgeous executive golf course on the resort property, so you can live the RV life and the golf life at the same time.

Within spitting distance are Cape Canaveral, Disney World, Cocoa Beach, and Daytona Beach, meaning there’s something for everyone in this RV park — even the grandkids when they come for a visit.

2. Sandy Oaks RV Resort

If you’re headed to Florida’s central west coast, you won’t want to miss Sandy Oaks RV Resort, one of Florida’s best RV retirement communities. Here, you’ll find 185 RV hookup sites on 40 gorgeous acres located just a half hour from Ocala.

The resort is adjacent to a golf course, and on the property, there’s an enormous and fully stocked clubhouse with a flat-screen TV and full kitchen, as well as a pool.

3. River Oaks RV Resort

River Oaks RV Resort is 50-plus rather than a 55-plus RV park, but that five-year difference isn’t likely to matter to most people who would like to park an RV not too far from the Tampa Bay area. This RV park is just a couple of minutes away from Clearwater Beach. For golfers who come here, you can start driving in any direction and hit a golf course pretty quickly — there are more than 50 golf courses within 30 minutes of the park, including one that’s less than two miles away.

4. Good Life RV Resort

We can all agree that retired life is the good life, and there’s no better place to celebrate that than at Good Life RV Resort. This Bartow, Florida, RV park is situated on Lake Garfield and a relatively short drive from both Tampa and Orlando, meaning the casinos and theme parks are well within your reach. But right there in Bartow, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy, including historic buildings, antique shops, and world-class citrus groves.

5. Horseshoe Cove RV Resort

Horseshoe Cove RV Resort holds the distinction as Bradenton’s highest-rated RV park. It’s a 55-plus, pet-friendly, perfect RV hideaway that is situated along the Braden River. On the property is a 12-acre private park on an island, as well as fishing piers, nature walks, and tons of grassy RV hookup sites with picnic tables and concrete pads.

6. Holiday Springs RV Resort

If you’re looking for a private lake, spring-fed swimming pool, nature trails, beaches, pickleball courts, a clubhouse, and shockingly low daily RV rates, you will find all of it at the Holiday Springs RV Resort.
