This place has it all! Beautiful landscaping, clubhouse, pools/spa (3), and golf course (Par 3). The staff are very welcoming, and we found the people here to be very nice. The resort has an activities director, and there are many activities planned for the winter season. You will not be bored here! Plenty of shopping and restaurants in the area, and the beach is 10 miles away. You won't find a nicer RV resort in Florida!!!
We always stay at this park when traveling through the area. There is some construction going on throughout the park to prepare for the 2010 FEI Equestrian Games. Our tip for staying here is to call the campground directly to help you choose a site as a few would be difficult to level your motorhome or could be a bit tight for parking. But, for the most part, you shouldn't have any trouble finding a suitable site. All the sites are spacious and most are shaded. We have no trouble staying here in a 45 footer. Remember, dump your tanks on the way into the campground as there is no sewer connection at your site.
If you're looking for a spacious site, beautiful landscaping, and plenty of things to do in the area, this is where you want to stay. The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. Plenty to do in the Traverse City area. We did find that the gnats (fruit flies) were problematic but were told this was due to a large cherry crop for the year and many farmers were "dumping" the overabundance of fruit, hence attracting these little buggers. It took us several days and fly traps to rid our motorhome of these pests! But, don't let that discourage you from staying here. It truly is a very lovely park.
This is a new park located just east of South Haven and the interstate. The sites are spacious, all have concrete pads, and a few are being improved with a coach house and landscaping. Nice "beach" on the lake; beautiful and well appointed clubhouse. Very friendly staff. Also, this park is very pet friendly! The sprinkler system is a bit over zealous and we had our pad drenched each day, but don't let that discourage you from staying here! We did find that the entry to the site was a bit tricky to avoid driving on the lawn with a 45 footer, and our friends had the same problem.
Absolutely the nicest RV Resort we've ever stayed in. Very spacious sites, some improved with landscaping and bungalow. Well appointed clubhouse with fitness center, and a beautiful pool/spa area. The hospitality here is beyond compare. Plenty to do in the area and wonderful restaurants in quaint towns.
This is a new "resort" and lots are individually owned although all are not yet sold. The first phase was complete and some lots had gazebos or small, outdoor kitchens and sparse landscape. We were amazed at how poor the grass areas looked - they were all weeds. It was quite windy during our stay, and the dust and dirt were blowing our way from the unfinished second phase. The clubhouse is beautiful inside and the exercise equipment is top notch. The pool is gorgeous, but if you like doing laps or water exercises you will be disappointed. The style of pool is more for looks than for functionality. The tennis court and putting green had not been developed yet. During heavy rains, the run-off was directed to the front of our coach and with the poor grass it became a muddy mess. The resort staff, however, are top notch and very helpful. We've stayed at many RV "Resorts" and in comparison to others, we were very disappointed with the appearance and amenities. While there are activities nearby, we found that within 4 or 5 days you could do and see all there is, unless you like golf and the beach. Those RV'ers who are experienced and enjoy an active, resort lifestyle at a resort with upscale amenities may want to think twice about staying here.
This is one of the few places to camp in Evansville. The camping area isn't very large, and you will be parked very close to your neighbor. It can be a little tight getting into your space depending on whether you have a neighbor or not. All sites are gravel. Satellite reception may be a problem if you are parked under the trees but shouldn't have any problem with antenna reception. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There may be large events scheduled and at times it can be very busy here. Plenty of room and trails for walking. When we arrived, the park was nearly full (many stay there in the winter, much to our surprise!) and we were unable to get our 45 foot coach into the space (they told us in advance we may not fit). The staff were very kind and we parked in the lower area parking lot expecting to dry camp and they were able to provide us with 30 amp power and water connection from a shed (which we didn't use since temps in the 20's). They offered this to us for no charge, however we made a donation to the park since they were so kind and there was no where else to stay in the area (except Flying J parking lot!). Whenever we come through the area we stay here. You certainly can't beat the price and location. Call ahead for reservations as there are only about two dozen sites (and not all can accommodate a large motorhome).
This is a nice alternative to high priced, older campgrounds in Asheville yet it is a quick 30 minutes from here to the Biltmore and other attractions. The park is also a good place if you plan to explore the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mount Mitchell. Plenty of places to explore and take day trips. All sites are paved with ample concrete pads and patios. If you choose a site along the river, beware that the trees may obstruct satellite reception. Also, we found that you will only get 3 digital TV channels because the local stations cannot get signal through the mountains. If you have a satellite, no worries (except the river sites). The grounds are immaculate. Staff are friendly and you are treated like family. The cafe is wonderful and serves a hearty breakfast and lunches. The cafe is open Mon - Sat (summer hours). The facility has a spacious sitting area, fireplace, large screen TV, spotless restroom/showers and 2 washers/dryers. If you are coming for service, this is the best place to stay if you want to come a day or so before your appointment, relax, and take some day trips while they are servicing your rig. If you want a nice, spacious, inexpensive, friendly place to stay while visiting Western North Carolina, you'll want to stay here! We are staying here as our base for 6 weeks and will definitely return here again! (Also, there is a rally park next door for small or large groups).
This is a wonderful park away from the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, but still close enough to everything. The staff are very friendly, helpful, and professional. All sites are well maintained. We chose a pull through site near the office and convention center("CC" site) which was spacious - there are only 4 of these type spaces so book early! CC sites offer a concrete patio and landscaping and front a large grassy field yet they are very convenient to the pools and facilities. They offer more "peace and quiet" than the other sites on busy weekends. There are plenty of sites that can accommodate 45 footers and we recommend the CC or the newer back area where there are few trees to obstruct satellite reception. If you like trees, don't worry - they have plenty of cable TV channels, too. There are also cabins with/without kitchens. The only reason we rate this facility "9" is that most of the roads and sites are gravel (premium and the CC sites are paved as is the entrance and check in area). So, don't let our rating discourage you. This place is a gem!!!
The most beautiful park we've ever stayed in. Plenty of activities at this resort and great restaurants nearby. The check in staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We found the residents very welcoming and were invited to several of the events at the clubhouse. The golfcourse is lovely (and quite challenging for a par 3). In the phase I section, the majority of lots are improved with lush landscaping, lighting, water features, and some have "tiki huts". All of these sites are owned but some are also rented along with a whole new phase of lots that are not improved yet with landscaping and lighting. Any site can accommodate a 45 foot motorcoach with ease. This park has a minimum RV size requirement (around 30 ft - call park to confirm) and age of motorcoach not greater than 10 years old. We will definitely stay here again!
Plenty of room to navigate a big-rig into any space in this park. The roads are wide, paved/gravel, and very well maintained. The new pool was open and features lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas, and snack bar that is open for breakfast and lunch. The lady in the snack bar had even baked home-made brownies that were delicious! The staff is very friendly and provide true southern hospitality. The dog park is across the street from the park and next to the marina where you can rent pontoon boats. There is also a pavillion for groups and a camp store. Fire rings are provided (and, I assume wood is, too, for a fee). During NASCAR events they provide shuttle service to Bristol Motor Speedway - well worth it! This park is close to Bristol, Johnson City, and Kingsport attractions and just an hour's drive north of Asheville, NC. We plan to return and stay longer next time.
Easy access for 40 - 45 ft motorcoaches although the sites nearest the dragway entrance (back-ins)are very narrow and barely room to extend your patio awning fully when you have a neighbor. Back-ins have hookups at the rear of the site and some of these sites tend to have a drop off at the back. Be sure to bring extra sewer hose if you are parked in this area. Other pull through sites have hookups located midway to the back. Beware that you may not be able to "pull through" if you have a neighbor behind you that has put out all their camping furniture, grill, patio awning, etc.(pull through sites are staggered). Your pull-through will be a back-in then! We did find the registration personnel friendly but disorganized. This being said, it is a clean park and in an excellent location. Note the entrance to the park is now at the new ZMax Dragway entrance which you follow all the way to the dragway and then turn right and right again(no longer entrance "X").
