The Encore RV Park is about 1 mile from I-75 at mile marker #368. Go west on Rt. #318 for 1/4 mile and then south on Hwy. #225 about 3/4 mile. We will be leaving Fl. on the same day to come back to Ohio for Christmas and then back to Florida on Jan. 1st. We plan on taking alot of day trips to see other campgrounds and sites so let us know where you're staying and maybe we can stop by.

Glenn and Lorraine,

If you are looking at the Kissimmee area and are Disney fans check out the Lakewood RV Resort on Osceola/Polk Line Road. I looked all over the area before I settled there for a month. It's right down the road from Mouse Mountain RV Resort. I It's an older park but has it's charm. The staff and owner's are super nice people. But what's really great is the location.

It's a straight 8 miles south on Shubert Road into Disney. It's a mile from I-4, a short hop to the Osceola parkway and 417. It's just north of 17/92 into the south end of Kissimmee. It's also a short and easy drive to Hi-way 27. It's away for the hustle but gives you a lot of options on how to get from one place to the next. One thing I learned about driving around Orlando/Kissimme is you always need and plan B or C depending on what's happening in traffic on any given day.

If you check out the Park. Lot C-12, in my opinion, is the best site for a 5th wheel. I believe their winter monthly rate is $359.

Looks like FL is going to be dotted with Montana's this season. Come on down. We need your spending to help with recovery. Especially the small business owners.
