Mt Olive Shores North – 389 Nolane Drive – Polk City, FL
After making the mistake of coming to Florida with no reservations and finding it hard to find places to stay, we are renting a RV pad here next winter and our landlords graciously invited us to stay a few days this season to meet people and see how we like the place.
We already have friends from Cincinnati – Jill and Eddie – that stay here for the winter and they taught us the ropes by taking us to play shuffleboard and to pot luck and generally showing us around.
There are over 350 sites in this gated RV oriented community in Polk City. They have a lot of different options here including just pads, ports with casitas, small homes, or large homes. Some had outdoor kitchens, gazebos or screen rooms. There are 2 large lakes and numerous ponds. The 2 clubhouses each have a pool and hot tub. The community seems very active with pickleball, shuffleboard, a movie theatre and many planned activities. There’s even a pontoon boat that you can take out on the lake – they supply the gas. Renters are welcome to use all the facilities and attend any activities.

This visit is limited to a few days but we have arranged to stay 4 months starting Dec 2017. Our lot has a table and chairs and a few palms and even a little view of the lake.

We’ve met a few more people here and are looking forward to seeing them again in December.
Home sweet winter home
