Our first tent camping experience at Moss Park was incredible!! We booked the family site which allows a maximum of 18 people per site (3 RVs+3 Tents or 6 Tents). Site 4 was HUGE and was spacious enough to accommodate our 6 tents. There was 3 picnic tables, 1 fire ring, and 1 large grill. There was also electricity so we took 2 50 foot extension cords to connect our supplies like our keurig. There was plenty of tress for shade. Out of the 4 family sites, #4 seemed to be the best. The neighboring sites were far enough to feel like you had plenty of privacy. The bath house was next to our site. It made it easy to access the bathroom with little ones during the night. As far as the bathhouse, it was very clean the first day we arrived. By the third day (Sunday), the bathrooms needed some cleaning...mainly the toilet stalls. If you’re bathing in the bathhouse, I recommend using it at night. During the afternoon and early evening, the water was not as hot. The grill was large enough to cook up 30 burgers at once. It was really nice having the dish sink at the bathhouse where it was easily accessible to wash our dishes. The kids enjoyed the short walk to the playground. There was lots of wildlife walking around our site...sandhill cranes, birds, deer. The park itself has so much shade and beautiful trees. My family and I only walked a portion of the hiking trail but we encountered a family of sand hill cranes including a baby crane! The park is very clean. The staff is constantly passing by and picking up your trash. The only down side is that there is no alcohol permitted. I was shocked when I saw that their trash bags are clear so all your trash can be easily seen when the staff comes to pick it up. Other than that, we had an amazing time and we can’t wait to book again. If you’re looking to stay at an individual site, the perimeter sites seemed very private.

Great angled space. It had previously (with us there too) rained and you could see where the highs and lows on the landing which caused extra leveling. The landing floods with rainfall. If the landing could be leveled (raised) to the table slab; would be ideal, up high good drainage. Lake Hart was absolutely beautiful. Many boaters, jet skis and fishing, lovely area for peace and quiet and a great place for a picnic. Monster mosquitoes, being local caught me off guard.

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.

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.

We met for a picnic with 4 children ages 1,4,7,8. It was terribly muddy trying to get in with our cars. We had planned to use the Pavilion but it was taken by a birthday party so we went on down and found a nice playground with an empty Pavilion but it was only for campers. We used it briefly making sure no one else needed it for a picnic and then left. We would have spent a lot more time had we had somewhere to be. We did walk to the lake and see it, it was very pretty.

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!

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!
