Paradise Island RV Resort, Ft Lauderdale, Florida

by The Perkins

There aren't too many South Florida Campgrounds these days. And if you are looking for one right in the center of Ft Lauderdale, close to the beach, it can be difficult not only to find campgrounds, but to find available sites at any campgrounds. My advice: book early.

Paradise Island RV Resort is in the center of Ft Lauderdale. It's not the best area of town, but the resort itself is rather nice. The spots are small, but well kept. They even have someone come and pick up your trash each morning for you. Nice clean showers, nice pool. There is a game room but kids aren't allowed in it. (If you ask management, they will give you some story about how kids are not legally allowed in a room with a pool table....I have not experienced this at any other park.)

No playground, but kids are not excluded here.

One caution, if you stay ANYWHERE in the Ft Lauderdale/Miami area, make sure you don't leave any valuables outside, and chain up your bikes. Our bikes were stolen at this park, but we stayed for a few months. I would absolutely stay here again, just taking better precautions next time.

If you're going to stay in Ft Lauderdale, stay here, at Paradise Island RV. But if you're considering South Florida and don't have a pressing need to go there, keep going to the Keys or visit the west coast.

Good park, bad location
by: The Perkins

If I was rating this park solely on the park itself, I'd give it a 4, but with the part of town it is located in (which is somewhat unavoidable) its a 3. I would return.
