Thousand Trails The Oaks At Point South RV Campground

The Oaks at Point South should not even be in the Thousand Trails network. The location would make for an OK basecamp to explore Savannah, Charleston or Beaufort but this is NOT a destination campground.

Thousand Trails Three Flags RV Campground

Three Flags is the third park we’ve stayed in the thousand trails system. Florida has 3 parks that are included in the southeast zone. This one feels the oldest and most rundown despite obvious work and improvements. They are renovating the park in certain areas and attempts are being made to clean the place up. It is also the smallest of the 3 Florida parks. We heard lots of complaints on the internet that it’s a dump and poorly run. I have to say you should take these people’s comments with a grain of salt. We have friends who complain about how terrible a restaurant is and when we go there we love it. While the park is older and smaller than we’ve seen and definitely needs some upgrades. We found it to be an acceptable place to stay and did enjoy being here. In short I would not hesitate to book another stay.

Thousand Trails Orlando RV Resort

We had reservations for our 2 week stay at this park. The night before we arrived we received a phone call from TTO informing us to not stop at the registration building. We were told to proceed directly to the main gate where they would have our paperwork. On arrival we were directed to the staging area (club house parking lot) where we could unhook Twinkie and be escorted to our site. Once we were all unhooked the woman in charge asked what my preferences were and showed me which sites were available. We chose what we liked and were promptly escorted to the site. All in all it went quick, smooth and painless. However when we arrived there were only 2 people ahead of us. More came in behind us and we were told that the following day they would have 75 people coming in. While we were here we regularly saw the line to get in going all the way out to the main road. Be prepared for a long wait during the busy season (Dec-Mar) unless you get lucky and arrive when no one else is checking in.
