Beautiful grounds, near theme parks

We love this park. Several playgrounds, RV sites that back up to Turkey Lake, pool, sand volleyball, boat rentals, walking and biking paths. Did I mention it's 2 miles from Universal Studios?! We've done the Disney/Ft Wilderness thing before but Bill Frederick is really Florida camping at its finest. We don't even care that the sites we prefer don't have a sewer hook-up (they have sites that do) but we like being closer to the lake. Sites range $19-$25.

Nice shaded sites

This park had nice amenities. Cable TV hook up included, free WiFi, easy pull thru sites with lots of shade. Our site had a nice stone fire-pit with wood already in it. There was a playground for the kids with a cool excavator that was too big for my kids but older kids would like. Even though you're in the mountains the sites are nicely graded and level gravel (and concrete pads are available as well). We liked the ease of on/off the highway and you don't hear the highway at all, feels like you're in the middle of the woods.

Animals and overnight sites

We saw this park on our way down and thought the shaded sites right off the highway looked nice and they have lots of animals around the property which I thought our kids would enjoy seeing. The shaded sites up front are for lengthy stays and the overnight sites are at the bottom of the hill; they are not shaded and not pull-thrus. The animals we saw were: 4 cows, 2 goats, 2 peacocks, 2 donkey, a painted horse, an ostrich and a dozen or so macaws, parrots and other tropical birds. There are no animal shows, its NOT a petting zoo and there are no gardens (the flower beds are fake). At roughly $40/nt we thought it was on the pricey side. We stay at a place in Orlando near the theme parks with several playgrounds, a petting zoo, lakefront sites with beach and boat rentals for only $19/nt. Compared to some of the state parks we stay in, this seemed overpriced and kitsch.
