What are the park's demographics?
What age group are most guests?
Most are mid-life adults: from their mid-40s to retirees.

What improvements are going on?
Can I bring my dog to live in my tiny home?
Are there pet restrictions at your tiny house village?
How can I tour your park before I arrive?
Are there organized activities?
What size are the lots?
What types of units do you have at Gracious?
We've had campers, pop-ups, C-class, A-class (bus style), 5th wheels, mobile home trailers, and now Tiny Houses on Wheels (THOWs). Generally speaking, we can accommodate up to a 40 ft rig.
Do you allow composting toilets?
Do you upkeep the lawn?
What's it like living full time in an RV or Tiny House at Gracious?
We have some brand new 40 foot rigs in the park as well as some much older trailers.
You can always find someone out & about to talk to, either tossing in a laundry, making a few casts to see what's biting, or around the tiki hut or pool; or you can keep to yourself, sit on the swing, or enjoy the sunset over the water. It's not a busy park, it's not tourist-y, it's not crowded, it's not loud, we don't have loud music & late night parties, but a few of us do enjoy sitting around the fire pit and sipping an adult beverage and looking up at an amazingly brilliant sky full of stars (There's no lights over the 750 sq mile Lake O). The park is not too small, not too big. Like Goldilocks would say, "it's just right."
What's the vision for Gracious Tiny House Park in the coming years?
We have 75 sites, about 30 of which are full-time residents here. As of Spring 017 we currently have three full time Tiny Housers on premises in addition to the little Cottage Camper. There is a THOW being built on site as well. (The building process is being documented and shared through facebook.com/TakeMeHomeTinyHouse Feel free to follow the build.
We are hoping that we grow to about 10 Tiny Houses and as the community develops we can decide if we want to all live in one section and separate it with a pretty white vinyl fence & landscaping around it or if we'll each choose our site location anywhere in the park (as we do now).
As mentioned before, we're also open to creating a community garden, compost bin and we're already planning a large fire ring out by the waterfront on my lot. (I live at site next to the fish cleaning area).
We're also open to other ideas and input from the Tiny Community.
How close are you to the nearest city?
The "city" of Okeechobee is more like a town. It's only 6 miles away, and has everything you could need:
RV parts stores
CVS/Walgreens/local drug stores
City Hall/Registrar/Tag Office
What are your rules for the tiny house community members?
We do have some rules to keep our community clean, comfortable and safe. The complete list of rules will be posted here soon, but generally speaking, they are very common rules as you would find at most RV parks accepting tiny houses.
What is the registration procedure and how much advance notice do you require?
We currently have several lots available between May-October and therefore we do not require advance reservations; but if you are seeking to place your tiny house on our land for long-term or live in it full time, it is advisable to make your reservation request a month or more ahead of season.
We can send you a pre-registration form via email. Please contact us for more information.
