Time for our yearly maintenance – waxing, caulking, and all the little jobs that we leave for the slower winter months. We’re in our favorite Florida campground, Moss Park, an Orange county park east of Orlando. It’s a quiet and beautiful park with huge, nicely spaced campsites and lots of vegetation for privacy and shade. The sites have water and electricity plus there’s a dump station. Other amenities include flush toilets, showers, playgrounds, boat ramps, fishing, swimming area, and hiking trails. It’s also inexpensive for Florida. Campers over 55 get a 25% discount so we are paying $17.50 a night.
Moss Park is almost empty at this time of year which is odd because it’s such a great park. The top reasons may be the rules banning pets and alcohol. Also reservation can only be made 45 days in advance by phone which may not be answered. There’s a two week limit and campers must leave for two weeks before returning. I’m sure all of these things keep the snowbird population down since most have pets, enjoy happy hour, and like to settle in for a long relaxed stay.
We especially like the park because the accessible sites are some of the best that we’ve found. The concrete parking pads are large enough to park an RV and several cars. There’s enough room for me to circle the motorhome and stay on the concrete. The table, water/electric post, and grill are all on the concrete and the fire ring is circled by concrete.
I checked out restrooms even though I don’t use them. The exterior doors do not have the correct handles for accessibility and are a bit heavy but I could still open them The accessible toilet stalls are very large and have sinks. All of the showers are roll in. The restrooms are not dirty but they could use a deep cleaning.
The roads are very hard packed sand which makes rolling around easy. A network of concrete trails meander through the trees and connect the sites to the restrooms.
The dump station is accessible and trash cans take the place of dumpsters.
