Really enjoyed our stay here. We were lucky to get a campsite which had the lake view. Beautiful sunsets over the lake. Lots of amenities for children. We took day trips to go hiking at beautiful waterfalls. We went to Graddaddy’s apple orchard and got some fresh fall apples, apple slushees, and donuts. Many good restaurants in Saluada if you don’t want to cook at campground. Staff was very friendly. Restrooms very clean although this time of year they were cold. Will definitely camp here in future!

Could barely send and receive texts, had to download Netflix in town to watch later. Sites were small and tight. Road to park very difficult at night, missed the entrance and had to turn around in a drive miles away! This was my last resort, now I know why.

I made a reservation over Labor Day and paid a 2 day deposit of $96.00. Orchard Lake's Cancellation policy for a holiday stay requires 7 days notice or you lose your deposit. I live in Central Florida and Hurricane Dorian is expected to hit the state on Labor Day weekend. When I called to cancel my reservation, the campground would NOT refund my deposit because I didn't give 7 days notice. REALLY???? Mother Nature didn't give me 7 days notice! Even though it was stated there wouldn't be a problem filling my cancelled spot, still no refund. When I asked if I could transfer my days to another time, I was told NO, the computer couldn't do that! In this instance, I believe Orchard Lake should have waived the 7 day notice rule.

Friendly staff and quiet campground but come prepared with blocks and boards to level up. We have stayed here more than at any other campground and have never had a flat and level spot. If they ever put as much effort into making flat spots for campers as they do in mowing, it will be wonderful.

Being relatively new to the camping world, my husband and I are trying out many nearby camp grounds. We chose Orchard Lake because of its location and it is a member of Passport America. We chose wisely....this is an excellent family oriented camp ground. The setting is beautiful....a few croaked, narrow roads to get there...but well worth it. After checking in we took a boat ride around the lake. Boats are available on a first come basis, no extra charge. Then we tried out the short zipline, a first for us 2 older folks. There are many available sites, from completely wooded to partial. Most looked level and easy to Park even a larger rig. The bathhouse nearest us was clean...not fancy....good size showers...lots of hot water. We plan to stop here again! Keep in mind that this is a family oriented camp...so you'll see lots of kiddos....pets and golf carts. By the way....the staff are very friendly and helpful.
