Silver Palms RV Resort Announces Record Annual Growth

Thu Dec 8, 2016

Silver Palms RV Resort has announced record annual growth, including the sale of 52 of its 195 available RV sites and 55 available Cottage sites since January and 10 lots sold in the last quarter alone.

Equally notable is the continued demand for lots in the Phase II section of the resort, with 32 lots sold in 2016 for a total of 37 sold since its completion in late-2014. Currently only 20 of its premier Phase II lakefront lots remain available for sale. The resort also notes that it currently has nine turnkey lots available for those looking to move-in immediately and avoid the time involved in the construction process, according to a press release.

“We are thrilled to be the destination of choice for RVers looking to secure their own piece of paradise in South Florida," Silver Palms General Manager Lisa Migliore says. "By combining the small town lifestyle and values of Okeechobee with the same level of amenities and attention to detail found at 5-star resorts, Silver Palms offers a true escape from the rigors of daily life to all of its residents and guests."
