Great Outdoors RV Resort
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We are staying here for two months renting a lot in coach corner. Like others have said, it's huge facility. Still very quiet and people seem friendly. Bring lots and lots of mosquito spray or be prepared to be carried off by the insects. It's in the middle of a 2600 acre swamp and the resort does not spray to control insects or the Mosquitos. You'd think with tropical and other mosquito born diseases they'd make the effort.
Lastly, there are two restaurants here, Plantation House and little place called the Jukebox Cafe that's supposed to be a 50s style soda fountain or hangout.
First, the Planation House is nice. More a bar for the golfers then a real restaurant. Food is pretty good as far as club house type places go. Wait staff is more focused on the bar area and their friends then the dining area. I ordered a beer, which the bartender brought, and I never saw her again. She watched a football game on the big screen and joked around with her friends at the bar. I left after half hour without ever being asked if I wanted anything to eat - which I did.
Lastly, the Jukebox Cafe - what can I say about this sorry excuse for a place? The waitresses, bless their hearts, are trying hard but, the menu makes no sense at all. I ordered a hamburger with chips and a coke. Hamburgers are pre-cooked then warmed on the grill. They bring the potato chips in a bag and they don't have shakes, malts or soda fountain drinks. Nothing in this place even resembles a soda fountain, has a soda fountain menu or experience. Unless you count the posters of Elvis and old signs hanging on the walls. I think this is supposed to do it for ambience. Oh, they have fake jukeboxes wall-mounted at each table that don't play and are really AM/FM radios. I was never able to figure out how to turn the one at my table on for some tunes. I'd rate the whole experience is strictly mediocre and a waste of time and my money. I won't go back. I think the new owners have no money to really make the environment work and I bet they don't last long with what they are doing.

This is an owner resort with some owners putting their sites into a rental pool. No two sites are really the same. There are several sections in this huge facility. But overall a very quiet and peaceful place. Some sites back right up to the onsite golf course and water features. Onsite golf cart rentals which is nice even if your not a golfer. We used one to get around the resort and to drive the nature trails along the St. Johns National Wildlife Refuge. Other Wildlife refuges are nearby as well.They also have a nature building onsite as well as a full RV service/repair center. TGO resort is Big Rig friendly and easy to get around...just make sure you have a site map:) We plan on staying here in the future and would recommend it anyone.

We routinely go to TGO resort. It is always such a nice trip. With the wildlife freely roaming and being nestled back from the noise of the highway this is a beautiful place to go relax. We are looking into purchasing a place in the resort in the future since we can't get enough of it. I would highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Anything off the golf course is best

Just returned from a 4-night stay here. Because it is low season in Florida, the RV resort is offering buy-two-get-one-free AND if you have the Woodall's guide, you can use its coupon for an additional free night for first-time visitors. So...we paid for two nights at $40 each (off-season price) and got two nights free. Good deal--$80 for four nights--but you have to be up for the Florida summer heat, and it was reeeeeeeely hot!

This campground has only full hookups (water, sewer, electric)--but what else would you want with a "resort"? No tents or popups are accepted--and no RVs under 18' (most RVs there were pretty luxe class A, B, or FWs). WiFi is not available at all site locations, but it is available (free) at the visitor center.

Sites were large, concrete pads were in tip-top shape, and all rental sites include a picnic table. Throughout the park are various shower/restroom facilities (we were within easy walking distance of two)--and at least one is like having your own master bath with private, locked bathrooms complete with shower, vanity, toilet, and tiled bench. Restrooms were super clean. A library, casual cafe, and restaurant are available, as are a pool, fitness center, tennis and shuffleboard courts, and an 18-hole golf course. You will also find a nature trail, dog walk, and dog play area. And...if you need RV parts or repairs, it is all on-site, as is a post office, bank, church, and barber/beauty shop.

Anything you need is nearby, including all the food markets, malls, restaurants, gas stations. Better yet, you are close to the Kennedy Space Center, the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, beaches, parks, and several museums. All the Orlando attractions are slightly over an hour away.

The park is full of trees, birds, and wildlife--a really nice walking and biking area. We also found it peaceful and quiet (though, again, it was off-season but lots are owned by residents who value reasonable quiet).

Staff was friendly and helpful (with the possible exception of one guard who took his job a little too seriously) both on the telephone and in person. All in all, it was a good stay and we will definitely go back when visiting anything on the east coast within reasonable striking distance.
