Thousand Trails Orlando Campground Video Tour
This week, Jimmy and Lisa of Find Us Camping found another great campground, this time in sunny Florida. Thousand Trails Orlando Campground is located in Clermont, Florida. This campground is located in the heart of Florida’s orange grove country.
Whether you’re looking to just relax at this 255-acre campground or visit the many attractions Orlando has to offer, Orlando Thousand Trails is the place for you. They will show you everything about this campground through their ride along tour.
Thousand Trails Orlando has 845 RV sites, including a mix of tent sites, 30-amp full hook-up, and 50-amp full hook-up sites. They also offer cabins if you are meeting up with friends or family that don’t have an RV.
There are back-in sites as well as pull thru sites and they have recently opened a brand new section where all sites are all back-in, full hook-up sites with concrete pads and picnic tables. Thousand Trails Orlando boasts many activities within the park; they have horseshoes, pickleball, basketball, shuffleboard, mini golf, outdoor duckpin bowling, huge outdoor checker/chess boards, two swimming pools, and a hot tub.
Also within the park is Lake Hancock, a 60-acre spring-fed lake where you can kayak, fish from the pier, or sit along the shore but watch for wildlife. They have all sorts of group activities planned and a list of these activities is given to you upon check-in. They also have a large recreational center which houses a small camp store, post office, and lounge area.
Things to do near Thousand Trails Orlando Campground
While there is plenty to do at the campground, there are lots of fun things to do in the Orlando area. Of course there are the obvious choices, places like Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World, which are all within a 35-minute drive from the park. But there are also some other fun places to check out.
First is Showcase of Citrus, just 4 miles away where you can take a tour of the 2,500-acre citrus and cattle ranch estate in the world’s largest 4×4, visit and feed the farm animals, shop in the store full of locally made food and drinks, pick your own fruit or just grab some that has already been picked for you, fish from the pier, or grab a bite to eat from one of the food trucks, but don’t forget to pick up a frozen treat before leaving!
Disney In Orlando
If you’re looking for something fun yet inexpensive to do with the kids then you might check out Disney Springs, this is an outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment area at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, which is near Orlando. There is no cost to go and parking is free too!
There are many stores with everything from bath and body supplies, to jewelry, to lots of Disney themed stores, including a Lego store with amazing displays outside. And don’t forget the many restaurants—they even have a Rainforest Café, which is super fun for kids of all ages!
Another fun place that Jimmy and Lisa visited while at Thousand Trails Orlando was ICON Park in Orlando. ICON Park is home to the Orlando StarFlyer, The Wheel at ICON Park, Madame Tussauds Orlando, SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium, and many stores and restaurants. It is a fun place to check out, especially in the evening when all the attractions are lighting up the sky!
