Jumping on this thread- I'm looking at trying to pull off a cheap summer of camping around Orlando. Being a Thousand Trails member, I can use the Orlando TT park.
I'm debating simply going monthly at Orlando TT for 2 months at between $660-860 for the 2 months.
Or I can be at the Orlando TT park for 2 weeks and then have to be out for 1 weeks. My 2 weeks of TT are already pre-paid in my yearly dues. The week out, I can get a discount at Encore parks. There are 2 in the area - Sherwood Forest RV Park
or Lake Magic RV Park
. In the 2 months that I would be in Florida, it would work out to needing 3 weeks out of the TT parks. It seemed like weekly rates at these for the last 2 years (with the TT/Encore discount) was something like $99/week (but then the woman said something about $120/week - she wasn't very clear). Either way, for the 3 weeks of being out of the TT park, it should be less than $400. Does anyone have experience with either of these parks?
The next cheapest would be the state parks in the area - Moss, Bill Frederick and Lake Louisa at $483 - $505 for the 3 weeks at each place.
