Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake

Craig and I said farewell to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground at the beginning of January and headed to Bill Frederick Park near Universal Studios. It is a City of Orlando park and has only 36 RV spots. They also have cabins and tent sites.

Our site has partial hook ups, so electric and water, but no sewer. We have been using the bathhouse bathrooms and showers. They are old, but clean. We did purchase a 42 gallon “blue boy” portable tank so we can empty the gray tank at the dump station. That way we can wash the dishes and take showers in the RV again. Craig does not really want to use it for the black tank.

The park is nice and quiet compared to Fort Wilderness. It is mostly snowbirds. There are a couple of fishing piers, grilling and picnic areas, a large pool open seasonally, a children’s farm and three disc golf courses. Disc or frisbee golf is played like regular golf with small frisbees or discs. We got a set at Outdoor World, but they also sell and rent them at the front of the park.

We are happy with the choice of this park, and really recommend it if you are staying in the Orlando area with an RV or tents. The sites are small and some are not level, but most people seem to fit their rigs in fine. The price is also great compared to other parks in the Florida area in the winter. Like the Florida state parks, book way ahead!
