The park is no longer well maintained. Even the beach is gone and the Ramps have been under construction for over a year. People use drugs near the playground in the wide open and park officials do nothing. Really a shame. There are holes in the ground that can cause a trip factor. The swing areas in the back thw swing has been missing for over a year and there are deep holes where the one standing swing is left.

It’s not worth go to moss park, they destroy the environment, no more sand beach , no more place to stop the jetski and boat, they should closed the park. It’s not fun place anymore! The park was empty nobody is going to this place anymore. Orange county is waist more keep does employ there. They should use the tax money for better things.

One of the nicest county parks I've gone camping. Beautiful campsites, super clean bathhouses that are always clean yet you rarely see who clean them, they must be ninja cleaners 🤣 Also check-in staff is always friendly. If there was any negative, it was due to campers that seem to make their own rules. We saw two different campers on different days driving the wrong direction, dumping garbage in the restroom trash can and leaving large amount of food in the bathhouse sink. This is totally unnecessary and unkind since there are two large dishwashing sinks on the rear of bathhouse and two trash cans every few sites apart. I wish people would educate themselves and be more respectful because this beautiful outdoor spaces need our respect so they continue to supply us with wonderment and pleasure.

This park is a gem. It is in a 1500 acre preserve and is fantastic. One huge plus is their no pet policy, YAY. The sites are huge and level with lots of shade. Restrooms are spotless. Deer and cranes walking through are fun. Raccoons are fearless. Water and electric at each site. Hiking trails, water access for boats and very quiet except for planes overhead. Fire rings and tables at each site. Dishwashing stations with very hot water. What’s not to like!

One of the nicest state/county parks we've been to. Very clean, large campsites that are seperated by trees, giving most sites some privacy. The lakes are pretty, boat launch and fishing docks provided. No sewer, but water and electricity are provided. VERY reasonable rates - and you are getting a great nature setting.

Pulled our camper down from 3/6 to 3/13/16 for a week at Disney and absolutely fell in love with this park. Check in was very easy and all the park Rangers were friendly. Campsites were spaced out and offered some privacy. Each site had water and power hookup, no sewer but the dump Station is close by. Large bathhouse is located in the center of the camp ground with concrete paths leading to it. Lots to do, large playgrounds, swimming area, fishing piers and all the nature trails you can handle. You recieve a gate code to come and go after hours. There is also lots of wildlife, we had 4 deer in camp as well as coons and Sandhill Cranes with babies. Moss park is a legitimate 25 to 30 minute drive to the Disney Parks, straight shot on 417, but be prepared cause it tolls you to death, invest in a sunpass. There is a publix and several other stores less than 5 miles away. We are already planning our next stay. Moss Park is a wonderful stay. By far the best disney vacation ever.

We have been coming to Moss Park for 30 years. We have had many camping trips and family get togethers here. We camp, bike, hike, kayak and geocache here.

For our family those memories are even more personal:
• my 31 year old twins celebrated their 2nd birthday here,
• my husband launched his first kayak here,
• my father worked here for 10 years,
• one of my sons' was married here,
• another son's memorial was held here after his death.

Its a beautiful, peaceful jewel near the madness of Orlando. Try it out- you will love the clean restrooms and deer everywhere 😊

We are tent campers and at this time of year, you can't find a reservation for camping at any state parks in central Florida because of snowbirds. We decided last-minute to go camping and looked to Orange County's parks instead. We had stayed at Orange County's Kelly Park in Apopka a few months before and liked it, so we decided to give Moss Park a shot. It did not disappoint.

The campground is at the tip of the park's "peninsula." At first, the sites are fairly open without much shade, but the further you drive back, the more wooded it becomes. Since the campground is first-come, first-served, we were lucky Site 29 was still available, because it was a very busy weekend. After driving and walking around during our stay, we determined Sites 29 and 31 were the best in the whole campground. They were deep and allowed plenty of room to spread out and enjoy nature without feeling like other campers were too close. And both sites have a view of the lake which was gorgeous during sunrise.

The bathrooms were the cleanest we have ever seen at a campground. The showers are walled in like toilet stalls with benches and nice privacy. The park staff was friendly and helpful.

The only disappointment were the hiking "trails." The Split Oaks Trail was marshy and impassable -- surprising for this time of year (dry season). The Bear Nature Trail was not marked off and seemed to meander all over the place between the road and a chain-link fence, so we stopped about a half-mile in. There is a dock to Lake Mary Jane that is well situated for fishers and has over ten spots for boats to dock.

If you need to visit the grocery store, Publix is less than 10 minutes away just past the 417 bridge. They did not stock firewood, so we had to drive another 5 minutes to a Home Depot, but the proximity to the park was doable.

Critters were not a problem; I thought we'd be overrun with raccoons like we were at Kelly Park, but we only had one visit our site. The sandhill cranes make their rounds in and out of campsites all day and are sure to wake you up at approximately 6:30 each morning (nature's alarm clock). We saw 9 turkeys while hiking through the nonprofit group campsites.

Moss Park is a lovely wooded sanctuary with great wildlife and beautiful scenery. We'll be back.

It was a gorgeous spring day, perfect for a picnic in the park. There were three of us in the car- my daughter, her 14 month old son, and me. We drove to Moss Park, thinking we'd pay a small fee for the day use; $3, we thought. The attendant peered into the car. "Three of you? That's $5". We dug around for the extra $2, paid, and proceeded into the park. Which, except for a family of four fishing lakeside,, was absolutely silent and empty. Yes, it may have been because it was a Monday. But I suspect that the steep fee to use the park played a part in whether people choose to go there.

That said, the play structure at this park is absolutely the best I've ever seen in an outdoors setting. My grandson, a relatively new walker, had a blast with the challenges that were scaled to his tiny body and abilities. He had so much fun. We took a walk and saw huge flocks of water birds- herons, cranes, etc. A highlight was watching a mother heron feed her chick.

On the way out, we stopped to ask about season passes. Since my daughter and her husband live only ten minutes from the park, it would make sense to spend the $$ on a pass. No, we were told, for two people you always pay $3; and for 3-8 people, you always pay $5, with graduated amounts after that.

What a shame that this play structure, this amazing park, sits empty on such a day...come on, Orlando, make season passes available to families who would use it all year long!

We had a total of 6 nights booked, split in half (so 3 nights and then a week later another 3 nights.) The camp site is really big, with two playgrounds that are well maintained. There is a lot of shade which is a godsend in hot weather. Each site is huge so you aren't on top of your neighbour. The bathrooms were kept nice and clean. You get a gate code to arrive or leave at odd hours. The raccoons are SO naughty and crafty but adorable. They are relentless too so make sure you don't turn your back on your food because they will grab it given the chance. We saw cranes, raccoons, deer, squirrels and armadillos. The drive to the parks is around 30-40 mins along route 417 and another 40 minutes to Kennedy Space Centre in the opposite direction. There are 3 toll gates you go through to get the the parks. If you're not from Florida may I suggest you get the e-pass from the rental company because you get nailed in how much you spend at these tolls in Orlando (and florida in general). The pass does work out cheaper than paying cash, and the cash tolls are dodgy because several times we put the exact amount of money in the basket and the machine didn't register we had paid so we had to pay again. We were not happy!

There is a Public supermarket 5 minutes up the road and it has everything in it you need. There are also banks by the Public and a few eating places like Outback Steakhouse (which is a GREAT eating joint!)

The only annoying part was you're directly under the flight path of MCO (orlando's airport) so you have planes flying low over your tent from early to late at night. But you get used to it after the first couple days.

Highly enjoyed our stay and we didn't even manage to find time to go down to the lake yet! We will be back.
