If I could afford to I would live at The Villages at Turning Stone! This is the best park we have stayed in traveling the east coast from Vermont to Florida! Between the staff, the sites and the over all peaceful grounds it is the most relaxing, enjoyable park. Everything is clean and well maintained (when was the last time you saw anyone clean the pay phone?)! There are many things to see and do in the area and free transportation to the casino and all it has to offer are definite perks. We encourage everyone to enjoy a stay at The Villages!
Sites are narrow, young tall tree growth provides good shade, pads are covered with very large sized gravel that spills into the grass/weed/mud lawn area making it difficult to walk on or for folding chairs. We were there for 10 days and the "grass" was never mowed and hadn't been for some time. The Office Staff very helpful and there is a nice little store. Staff escort to our site and assistance in positioning RV was appreciated. We did find and reported a cracked electrical outlet but it was never fixed during our stay. The pool is small with no adult hours so if there are a lot of children camping it isn't very relaxing. There is a game room that had quite a few games to entertain all ages. There is miniature golf for the extra charge of $2/person but it need a considerable amount of repairs. The water was terrible and we had to flush our system after our stay. Add the expense of bottled drinking water if you go! We were there visiting friends and will try another park for our next visit.
We stayed one night each way traveling between New York and Ohio. Sites are generally level, roomy with shared lawn area. Young trees recently planted on each site for shade, pea gravel roads and pads. An escort to our site was a nice welcome. The WiFi was either poor - or non existant. The park had a degree of road noise but the field of grapes next door was a visual plus. A beautiful stream area on the grounds made for a peaceful evening walk after a long drive. I can easily recommend this as a good stop over - we weren't there long enough to determine what is available for a longer visit.
This is a must on our semi-annual pass through traveling north or south. Where else can you find such easy access from I-95, generous site width, extra long sites with your choice of hookups, gracious staff, well maintained facilities all for such a nominal fee? If they would add free WiFi I could easily boost the rating to a perfect 10! They don't have cable TV but the local stations seem to cover the average traveler need for a night or two. We stayed there last year for 5 days before continuing our journey to FL and enjoyed walking around the grounds and Padroland! This park is a great stop, one we would recommend to others!
