I really enjoyed the resort, however I wasn't aware of the Full Hookup Lottery until I arrived. The ladies at the front/phones were very nice but always seemed to get things confused and had to constanly followup with them. There is no propane sold onsite, except by making a reservation with an outside vendor, so make sure you're full or to get scheduling information ahead of time. I was there for 11 nights and ended up staying in the partial hookup area because the spaces felt more open and much less crowded. Make sure you schedule the Honey Wagon right away as they are only Mon-Fri and fill up really quickly. As long as you this things ahead of time and not have to stumple upon them as you actually need them, you should have a very enjoyable visit!

One of only 3 Thousand Trails resorts in Florida. The campground is a mix between sewer and non-sewer sites. There were a number of sites that were very wet and not usable, especially for a large rig (ours is 43 feet). The staff was mostly friendly but there were a few that were snarky. Thank heavens for Sam who was logical and customer focused. This is our second stay at Peace River and we have a couple more already booked. Rated the Rooms/sites as fair as there are a mix of great and not so great sites.

We were denied 50 amp service and full hookups, even though that was what we reserved, and forced to park in a 30 amp, electric-only site in a flood plain. Apparently, Peace River's policy is that you have to park in an electric-only site when you arrive, regardless of your reservation. Then the next day you can enter a "lottery" for a chance to move into a site with full hookups. We were there for two weeks and never "won" the lottery, despite there being plenty of empty sites available. This was the subject of much consternation among the other campers - some claimed the lottery was rigged and favored certain campers over others. Others suggested you had to bribe the staff to receive a coveted full hookup site. Regardless, those who did not "win" the lottery were forced to remain in the lower half of the campground which flooded and turned to mud every time it rained. Our site did not have a picnic table or fire pit, but we wouldn't have been able to use it anyway because of all the mud. We saw more than a few rigs get stuck and have to be towed out of their sites when it was time to leave. The community dumpsites are on a hill on the side of the roads, which means you back up traffic every time you dump your tanks, and you can't get them empty because you're parked on an incline. Honey wagon service is only available if you stay more than 2 weeks. Also, for those who are sensitive to COVID protocols, there are none at Peace River. The campground has a full calendar of indoor and close quarters social events with no social distancing. Almost no one, staff or campers, wears a mask, and there are a group of campers who take it upon themselves to accost anyone they see wearing a mask. In all, our stay was incredibly frustrating and uncomfortable. It's a shame Thousand Trails allows its campgrounds to operate like this. We won't be back.

We enjoyed the campground itself but were extremely frustrated with the "Lottery" process used to enable you to get a site with 50 amp electricity and sewer connection. We have never stayed at a campground where your site was not assigned at or before check-in. Took over 2 hours to be assigned a permanent site for our stay.

Lot lottery system is goofy, but it works! Will be much more efficient when/if they add sewer to many of the sites. When I made reservations through TT we were not told about the lottery system and that the "temporary" sites have no sewer. Overall a nice stay, we found the park better than many of the on-line reviews that we read.
