Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake Reviews
We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. It was a lovely park with a lot to do - big playground, bike trails, swimming pool (on the weekend). Our camp site was large and very shady. Loved our time he... more »

We attended this park for day three or four of the family reunions. We had a covered space rented where we enjoyed a ton of games, food ,family, Fun, and Fellowship. When we first arrived, me and my friend made sure to walk the pier and check out the water. And what I found strange was the water was flat and there was a lack of jet skis or boats people swimming enjoying the water. Later on we would find that these waters are alligator-infested and are not safe to swim or enjoy water fun.As a matter of fact we were told not to go too close to the tall grass or Water's Edge because of alligators. I'm from Seattle, so that is kind of weird to hear people say you can't go into the lake 4 River water because of alligators but I understand that it's more humid and a better environment for alligators and snakes to live in then cold Seattle. It's definitely super humid in Florida, this park was super humid. There were a bunch of families having their family reunions here aside from ours based on all of the t-shirts that we seen throughout the park. All of Florida really was just very humid during the day the breeze is hot oh, you must have air conditioning. So trying to really enjoy yourself and have fun and play games and eat in this weather, is a bit difficult if you're not used to this kind of weather. Sadly, I tend to sweat a lot and so I found myself fanning myself majority of the day with a paper plate or two. This is definitely a beautiful Park. They definitely have areas away from the water for the kids to play. Sadly because of the snakes and alligators I wasn't really comfortable letting my nine-year-old daughter and my twelve-year-old son roam Free to do as they please. Definitely a beautiful Park great experience really enjoyed myself it is really beautiful but hot as hell
For the price you can't go wrong with this place. We were 10 minutes from Universal Studios. The drive to the camp grounds from the entrance was really nice and super easy to navigate as it's a single direction loop. The roads in the camp grounds could use a little updating but again it was a single direction loop so you couldn't get lost. Lots of tree cover and it seemed that the internal sites all had sewer hook ups. The bathrooms were dated but clean all the time. When I visit again I want to try out the disc golf and the drone area.
