This is a really cozy RV Park. Sites are large and level grassy sites with full hook-ups (30-amp) and plenty of space in between. All of the facilities are well-maintained and clean. Other guests/residents were all friendly and seemed quite happy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great park for snowbirds. Rate reflects monthly rate. After 6 months, the balance of the year is $199 per mo. Only drawback is no shower house yet. Produce is delivered by golf cart weekly; propane refills at your site. Good people and lots of cheap park models! Pool and activities are great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here for 5 to 6 months in winter season. Close to everything yet a rural setting. Friendly people park, nice pool and activities. Seasonal rate under $500 per month. Carefree management very nice and helpful. We are returning in November. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The entrance is directly across from Majestic Oaks. Emerald Pointe is 100% site owner owned. To rent a site you deal directly with the lot (site) owner. The office has a listing of available sites or you can do so with the web site. Park is very clean, people friendly, and more than enough activities. Would highly recommend if you desire an extended stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park management very rude and unfriendly. We were accosted at the gate and told that our dogs were to big. 20 lb limit. Nothing was mentioned at reservation time. Not adequate space to walk pets. We left after one night after being verbally abused by the manager several times. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Hillcrest is not really an RV park. I don't know why they call it that. It is a 55+ park model community. There are some RVs that stay in it in the winter months. Most are very old and run down. All sites are back-in. It is a little depressing to say the least. People are friendly and there are plenty of activities. We would not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camp was clean, neat, and full of friendly people. My problem with Majestic Oaks was all of the "incorrect" information on the website. 1) There is no WIFI. 2) The Tengointernet was also nonfunctional. 3) The manager left early for the day thus causing me to setup my unit on a concrete slab. I was later told that I had to move the unit to the grass beside the slab. 4) A plant nearby (next door) was loud and dusty. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is extremely clean! Sites are large and there are no trees with moss hanging over your camper. They are close to everything, but far enough away! Great place to relax and get away ... we are coming back to stay longer this winter, excited about the park activities! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Undoubtedly one of the finest resorts in West Central Florida, this campground is unfortunately located next to several Concrete Plants. The wind blows concrete dust all over the park, making residents sick. Also, the number of sites has greatly outgrown the size of the facility - not all residents can get into the clubhouse at once for weekly meeting; pool only holds 35, etc. Manager has a mercurial personality - makes your stay less than it could be. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park but highway noise from Rte 301. Management is very difficult and rude. Tenants have told horror stories. They sway pet friendly, but only if they like your pet!! Will not stay again until new management arrives. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed starting on Jan 1 for a month and paid 467.00 plus electricity which was 48.00. I don't know what it is per night. The 17.00 is approximately what it cost us per night. Wifi was not available at our RV site as we expected. We were told it was available at office, but had not been available at the sites for a long time. 1/2 of the dryers were not working and I was told by residents they had not worked for at least a year. I made 2 calls to Wilder owners and the week before we left all dryers were working. The roads need paving, trees and limbs need cutting. We could not get in to first site due to low hanging limbs. The park model owners do not own the lots and many of the park models are old and an eyesore and for sale. There are some very nice well kept park models. Cats were a problem in the park and one owner had more than we could count and it smelled when we walked past her park model. Cats sprayed our tires, got on vehicles and a newspaper article reported rabid cats found in the county. The cats screamed at night under our RV. It is not a gated secure park and they don't have security. The people are friendly and it is about 30 minutes to Brandon and Tampa. They do have a heated out door pool. We would not go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stay here often, in the winter, as my wifes father lives near by. It is older, but well laid out. Our only concern, now that we have a 42' diesel pusher, is that the extra weight, may prove a problem, as it's sometimes very wet there, and there is a good possibility that we will get stuck with our bigger rig. The office folks are friendly, and there are many extras to do. Would recommend this park to anyone, especially at this price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very active park. Entry is very short with nowhere to park for check in. Well groomed park. Management seemed very friendly. Has a lot of fire ants! Stayed here 5 nights visiting friends who have been here for 3 years now. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very friendly park. The sites are a good size and can accommodate the larger rigs. There are a few sites that have 50 amp but most are 30. When we arrived we were escorted to our site and assisted with parking. The campground is on the outskirts of town but everything is accessable. There is a fruit stand in the park and across the street a convience store/gas station. There were children in the park but it is basically the 50+ crowd and it is advertised as a Adult Travel Resort. The park also has a large pond, clubhouse, exercise room, shuffleboard, pool tables, horseshoe pits and scheduled activities We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was not our best experience with an RV park. The interior roads are narrow, it’s a tight squeeze for a big rig, and some roads dead end so it would be a challenge if you make a wrong turn. The first site we were assigned to had a broken sewer connection so we moved to another site. The second site had a broken water connection but we were able to fix it with a pair of pliers. The site was not level, our back axle was completely off the ground at the first attempt to level. After much work we were able to level with blocks under the tires and jacks. We have never had that much problem leveling anywhere. Our site was sandwiched in on all sides by permanent residences. During the evening, while we were inside the rig, someone drove something through our site, across our outdoor mat under the awning, and broke an item sitting on our mat. Why they rode so close to the rig and through our site is still a mystery, we never saw them, only the tire tracks left in the sand and on our mat. All the sites and homes are so close together it’s difficult to maneuver a vehicle without crossing onto or into another person’s site. The park is almost entirely old mobile homes, travel trailers, park models, etc. with seasonal RV’s scattered throughout and among the permanent residents. Although the park itself is clean, the deterioration and age of the park is evident. Some of the permanent residents commented about management not reinvesting in upgrades to the park. It was never quiet at our site due to constant road noise, daily sirens, and blaring televisions. No Wi-Fi. Good signal with AT&T. Rate reflects Tampa RV Show special to try out the park. If we paid the rates posted on the park’s website I would not have been happy since the park is barely maintained, needs repairs, and could use some upgrades. I could not wait to leave and we will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is better than half permanent sites, but they are well cared for and everyone is friendly. We were given a site for a 40 foot motor home and told to go the wrong way on streets to get to the site. When we arrived there was not enough room to back into the site that was angled in the wrong direction. I tried to back in, but wasn't able to. I decided to drive down the street and come back up the right way so I could back in. When I got to the end of the street I wasn't able to make either turn and that's why it was suggested that I go the wrong way. I ended up backing to a place where I could turn around and then backed all the way into the site. This is not to condemn the campground, but to forewarn visitors. There are no tables or grills. It is a nice clean place with reasonable prices to explore the area and we will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
STAY AWAY! This is actually 3 parks in all. Mobile is for small manufactured homes and Sleepy Hollow I and II is for trailers and RVs. Sleepy Hollow I doesn't allow pets. We stayed for 2 weeks in January 2011 at Sleepy Hollow II, and although the park managers were very friendly and caring, this became the worst park we ever stayed at. The rates are cheap though: just $150 a week or under $400 monthly and the park is clean and tidy. These residents own the park and they act like it. They were asking about our business constantly. Park residents were routinely walking through our site and someone stepped all over my sewer hose crushing it. It cost me $12 to replace it. One night gasoline was siphoned from my pickup truck. Gas was at $3.19 a gallon then. I had to buy a locking gas cap and set up an alarm. On Monday of week two I found footprints in the dirt outside the bedroom window of our trailer. It looked as if someone was having a peek at night. I put a yellow light bulb outside to burn all the time after that. No everyone was nosey. Some were indifferent. The resort had a group of French Canadians that kept exclusively to themselves. They totally ignored us. One day a park lady asked me why I went up front six times that day. I told her that "since you've been watching me and must know, four trips were for laundry and two were to take garbage out". While playing shuffleboard at least three ladies came over one by one and stopped us from playing to show us "the proper way to use their court". Also at the clubhouse, there was a gaggle of women that laughed hyena-like constantly and hysterically for no reason whatsoever. They went to every function. On Friday the park was having free hamburgers at the clubhouse and I wanted to sign up. But the resident in charge told me that he has to put us on standby and that after everyone ate if there were any no shows then we could have a hamburger. What nerve! Even soup kitchens don't do that to people. I realized then and there that these people were substantially abnormal. We went to Burger King and resolved not to attend any more of their clubhouse functions or take part in any activities. Honestly for the most part these people were weird. This would be a better park if it had different people in it. I'll never go back even for free. They need to change the name to Weird Hollow. It’s not my kind of place! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is lovely. Winter residents are very nice and friendly - made us feel very welcome. New pool - great! Will not return, however, because of the current management team. they are two very nasty people. He will yell and scream even while he is parking you in your site. This park is owned by a corporation and we couldn't understand why they keep this management team here. Talk to the winter residents and none likes them. Careful if you reserve here. If you do, avoid the managers at all costs!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great little park. Extremely clean and well kept. Staff is great and friendly and very helpful, even to the extent of helping with the set up if needed, just completely different than most parks. The rate of $10 is on a monthly rate, and then add electric to that. We had the local cable company hook up cable TV and that is great. Wi-fi is available, but I had my own with the calbe TV. Will be here for 2 or 3 months, and may come back next year. Great Carefree park. We have stayed at 4 different Carefree resorts and this is by far the best one of the 4.. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This a small park by modern standards with mainly park models. But a very friendly park, exceptionally clean. Sites along the fence are not very level, however those within the main section are level. All have concrete patios and picnic tables. There is a large heated pool, club house, and small laundry with only one washer with hot water. Showers and restrooms are very clean. Close to Wal-Mart and three super markets along with many big box stores. Very quiet. I found the maintenance staff is by far the best I ever encountered, ask any question and they have the answer and will help. The rate is for a month period. We camped here in a Motorhome.
