About Orangeland RV Park
Orangeland, a family owned RV park, opened in 1972. Owner/builder, E. H. Welton stressed from the beginning that Orangeland was to be a FAMILY business as opposed to a family BUSINESS, and to that end the park prides itself on its family friendly atmosphere and service that has twice earned Park of the Year honors from the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC).
Orangeland was built on the site of a working orange grove, and among the park’s more popular attractions today are the many orange and other citrus trees from which guests are encouraged to pick fruit in season.
Explaining that, “This just feels like home;” or “We feel like we’re part of the family here,” many guests return to Orangeland season after season. “Word of mouth” has always been one of Orangeland’s most effective means of advertising.Orangeland became a family corporation in 1979. Mr. Welton, who created Orangeland, left us in July 2012 at age 95. Mrs. Welton is now the president and various family members serve as corporate officers and directors. Cindy Wimbish, Mr. Welton’s daughter, is Vice President. Cindy, a Lifetime Certified Park Operator, has been at Orangeland since 1985 and has a background in education. Cindy’s philosophy is simple.
