Silver Palms RV Resort, one of South Florida’s premier five-star RV resorts owned by Sunland Resorts, announced record occupancy and sales over the past 12 months, including the sale of 111 of its 286 total RV sites and the recent purchase of four of its 59 new eco-friendly, professionally furnished cottages.

Currently the resort has 12 turnkey RV lots available and five ready-to-move-in cottages, according to the announcement.

Perhaps most interesting, however, is the influx of 30- to 45-year-old full-time RVers, a shift driven not only by the current strength of the economy but also the diverse array of amenities and activities offered by the resort including the increasingly popular sport pickleball, played on its 10 professional courts.

Included in the younger demographic is recent resident Shawn Moore who, along with his wife Amanda, has wholeheartedly embraced the tranquility and accessibility Okeechobee offers.

“When we first discovered Silver Palms, we were simply looking for a centralized spot in Florida from which we could research different areas for our future retirement. Given the fact that we are in our early 40s, we certainly weren’t in a rush to decide on a permanent location but all of that changed as soon as we pulled into the resort’s gates,” Moore said.

“Residents can be involved with as many community activities as they want, or they can simply enjoy the peace and quiet of their own little piece of paradis,” he continued. “Equally as appealing is the fact that from Okeechobee we can head roughly one-and-a-half hours in any direction and enjoy the rest of Florida, then return back to the tranquility of home. Lastly, I had never heard of pickleball before visiting Silver Palms and have to say that it absolutely rocks!”

Silver Palms RV Resort offers guests and owners the comforts of a five-star resort including top-level accommodations, amenities and services. Situated on 90 nature-rich acres including a 17-acre wildlife preserve, the resort provides a serene getaway for its owners and guests while also enjoying various resort activities, easy access to area attractions, and the most incredible resort families around.

Silver Palms offers a variety of extra large customizable lots for all class RVs and also features fully furnished cottages for purchase.

Silver Palms is owned and operated by Sunland RV Resorts, a company that brings more than 30 years of resort management experience to each of their 10 locations in three states.

Sunland has selected locations that are destinations for their guests, offering services and modern amenities that the company says truly set the locations apart in the outdoor hospitality industry. Guests can expect personal interaction from staff, events and activities, full-hookup sites, meticulously maintained facilities and temperature-controlled pools and spas.
