Campground Review: Lazydays RV Resort

Lazydays RV Resort

6210 County Road 579

Seffner, FL 33584

Time of year we camped there: Winter

Verizon Coverage: Yes

  • Good Verizon coverage for voice and data.

Notes about the surrounding area: This campground is directly next to the Lazydays RV dealership.  They advertise it as the largest RV dealership in the United States – I can’t verify that, but it is definitely BIG.  In addition to their inventory of new and used RV’s, they have a large accessories store (similar to a Camping World store) and a massive 300+ bay service and body work department.

This campground is less than one mile from I-4, at exit 10.  It is less than a mile on I-4 to reach I-75, so it is very accessible via large roadways.  Seffner is a suburb of Tampa and we found it was an easy, ~20 minute, highway drive into downtown.  There are plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, and other retail establishments within five miles of the campground, if you don’t want to mess with Tampa.

There are also two very convenient truck stops going to and from the campground on CR 579 from I-4.

Particular notes about this campground and/or sites:  The campground is large’ish (~300 sites), very well maintained and has many nice amenities.  All roads are wide and well-paved.  Every site is asphalt with a paved patio and picnic table.

One note about the sites is that we found them to be on the small side.  I reserved a 42 foot site for our 40 foot coach.  We were backed up to within about two feet of the rig behind us and I still felt like I was sticking out too far in the front – but so was everyone else, so I didn’t worry too much about it.  The sites were also fairly tight side-to-side.  There was enough room, but we happened to be entertaining guests and I felt like we were standing right next to our neighbor’s utility bays.

Exit 10 Bar and Restaurant

Amenities: There is a large, heated pool and hot tub that is covered with a giant screen enclosure and nice patio furniture.  Next to the pool is a 12,000 square foot “Rally Center” where they host many different RV groups and organizations.  Also inside the Rally Center and directly next to the pool is Exit 10.  Exit 10 is a RV-themed bar and restaurant – complete with booth dinettes in slide-outs protruding from the side of the restaurant. (Note: Exit 10 is closed on Sunday and Monday)

When you stay at Lazydays RV Resort, you receive meal vouchers for two people to eat breakfast and lunch for each day of your stay.  These vouchers can be used at The Front Porch, which is a cafeteria-style eatery located in the main building at the dealership.  You can drive to the dealership (about a 5-minute drive) or take the trolley that runs back and forth between the resort and the main sales building.  The vouchers could only be used for certain items, but we found them to be suitably filling and of reasonable quality.  The hours are limited to 8-9:30am for breakfast and 11am-1:30pm for lunch.  While you’re there, I’m sure they’d love for you to do a little shopping.  We did walk through a few RV’s and were never approached by any sales people, which was refreshing.  Maybe we just “look poor”. (Note: The Front Porch is closed on Sunday)

There is a tennis/pickleball court, a children’s play area, and a dog obstacle course that we didn’t use, but looked nice.  Curbside trash pickup, daily newspaper, and cable television are all included with your stay. They also provide free WiFi in their buildings.

Our experience:  We made the quick decision to go to Lazydays during the time of the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship.  Even though we’re not dedicated fans of either Clemson or Alabama, I am a big-time college football fan, in general.  We also had friends, who are huge Alabama fans, coming to town so it was a great excuse to see them.  We arrived on a Sunday and departed on Wednesday – the game was on Monday.  Sunday night we entertained the entire group at our campsite with a tailgating style cookout (this is when we wished the sites were a little larger).

We were gone most of Monday for the football game and the activities surrounding it.  Tuesday, we got our first taste of the complimentary meals at The Front Porch and we had no complaints.  We also walked through the large accessories store at the dealership and found the selection to be good, but pricing to be on the high end (I didn’t ask if they would match competitor’s advertised pricing).  We ate at Exit 10 for dinner on our last evening and enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere.

Overall, it was a nice campground with a great location for our needs.  The price was higher than we’d normally spend, but this was a special occasion (we paid $52/night plus taxes). Unfortunately, we were pretty busy and didn’t get to enjoy all of the amenities that were included, but that’s no fault of the campground.  We already have a week-long reservation to go back for a Discovery Owners Association rally at the end of this month and we’re definitely looking forward to it!

SOH Score (1-10, 10 being the best campground imaginable): 8 – It’s a full-featured campground, with a price to match.  The sites were smaller than expected, but that’s the only fault we could find during our quick stay.
