Florilow Oaks is located on U.S. 301, Bushnell in Central Florida, approximately 1 mile north of County Road 542 – Family Dentist Office on corner. The setting is rural with many beautiful oak trees and a small pond. It was purchased in 1984 by a group of members of Loners on Wheels™ for the purpose of making it a Park for singles over 55.
It is operated by a Park Manager under the direction of a Board of Directors consisting of nine elected members. We have personnel who maintain the Park facilities. We now welcome singles of any travel club and it has become a popular meeting place for many singles who spend their winters in Florida.
We are a corporation made up of single individuals who have purchased shares of stock in the corporation that owns the Park. To learn more about the concept of this unique Park, I suggest that you visit us and learn first hand what it is all about.
Reservations are not necessary from May 1 through October 1 and there are always singles here, as many of us live here year round. We participate in Passport America during our off-season, which is May 1st to October 1st.
Our RV rental sites are a very important part of our Park and we have accommodations for both long term and short-term visitors. All our rental sites are full hook-up sites. We have a dump station available to all our visitors.
We are very proud of our nice recreation hall, clean restrooms and showers, a laundry and paved roads throughout the Park.
The activities in the Park are many and varied, planned for the single lifestyle. Parties, potlucks, crafts, games, cards, or just meeting with friends are among them. (We have an activity director who plans a number of day trips in the winter season. Our social activities include a Halloween Dance, a Thanksgiving Dinner, a Christmas Dinner and Dance, a New Year’s Eve Party, Valentine Dance, etc.) We have coffee hour every morning and a happy hour in the afternoon.
Outdoor activities include shuffleboard and horseshoes. The roads throughout the Park are great for biking or walking. You may also enjoy bowling, golfing, fishing, dancing and swimming on a regular basis as you only have to travel a few miles for these activities. We are within an hour’s drive of major attractions such as, Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens, Silver Springs, etc..
Yes, we do like pets and have a doggie play area that is shaded and fenced.
All pets must be leashed, when outside unless you are in the fenced play area.
You must clean up after your pets and place waste in the dumpster.
The city of Bushnell is the county seat of Sumter County and although not large, offers about any type of professional service and business you might need. It has a shopping center and there are larger towns of Leesburg in Lake County and Inverness in Citrus County only about 20 miles away that have full service medical facilities and other services to fill your needs.
We have 24-hour emergency and ambulance service available also.
You are always welcome to stop in at Florilow Oaks any time of the year. In the busy winter season it is best to contact us ahead of time as knowing your approximate time of arrival, the size and type of your rig makes it easier for us to have something available for you. We are looking forward to seeing you here in the near future.
