This is a nice clean, quiet campground. I would not describe it as a family campground since there are no facilities for children. It is geared for older people with a motor coach. It is the first campground we have come across that does not provide bathroom or shower facilities, you have to use your RV's facilities. It is well situated two miles from downtown Naples and four miles from its pier. Shopping is well catered for by a Wal-Mart and Publix stores close by.
This campground was dissappointing. It was $40 after Good Sam discount. Rules stated electric heating was not allowed, all heating to be done using propane as electricity is expensive (so are their fees) WiFi connection costs a further $3 for 24 hours connection. The very small private beach is more like the edge of a tidal estuary, tha main beach being reached across a nearby road bridge which acts as the foreground to any photographs taken of the sun setting behind it.
This campground was a very nice find for an overnight stay on our travels around the panhandle. It has a small intimate feel and is wedged between the highway and ocean. The sunrise over the ocean is a delight to watch from either the beach or their fishing pier.
The purpose of our stay was to view a space shuttle launch. This campground offers an unobstructed view of the launchpad across the river but is in my opinion too far away from the launchpad to be enjoyable. The campground itself is scruffy with too many sites given over to RVer's who appear to be permanent residents living there in old untidy vehicles. There is evidence of dog fouling everywhere. We'd booked in for 4 nights and couldn't wait to leave. This campground has potential but needs to be managed more firmly.
This campground is well located next to the Snake River, for whitewater rafting and horse riding, the stable being just across the road, however it is 13 miles south of Jackson and therefore it is important to have a car in order to visit Jackson etc. The campground is overpriced at $60 a night. The Wi-Fi signal is often weak, there is no swimming pool, the sites were muddy and uneven. The laundry is expensive, the tumble driers costing more than twice as much as we've paid elsewhere. There are two restroom/shower blocks. The one behind the office has four shower cubicles, however there is no privacy whatsoever, the users being required to undress in an open space and then step straight in to a cubicle for a shower. If as much effort and expense had been spent on guest showers and amenities as was spent on the office and gift shop this would be a better campground. Use it only as an overnight stay between other campgrounds showing more respect for their guests.
In an area where you would expect to find extremely basic amenities was this absolute gem. The campground is a short distance from the sand dunes, and offers motel rooms, hookups, swimming pool, showers and shops. At night - silence, pure silence, and dark, clear skies. We loved it and will make every effort to return.
This is a fantastic campground. We paid extra for an ocean view and were able to lie in bed watching the dolphins play in the ocean below. The only criticism we had was the lack of knowledge by the staff of the local public transport. We were not towing a car and wanted to visit LA for the day. They couldn't help with the journey details which was surprising and disappointing.
This campground is NOISY. We arrived to find they were hosting guests from the nearby pop concert. The management provided guests with LOUD amplified music from 9am to 2pm and even changed the quiet hours to 3am-7am so that they could enjoy their partying without breaking the rules. There is a railroad somewhere close by as well as the I-10 freeway. Guests not under the influence of alcohol are awoken by the noise of long, noisy trains on the busy railroad and trucks on the freeway from about 6am. We tried to get a refund and move on but the refund was refused and so we had to stay and endure it. The campground website is rather misleading 'few minutes away' from Palm Springs attractions is in fact a 20 mile drive. Don't even consider coming here unless you have a car, there is no public transport available, without a car you are stranded. Leave this campground to the snowbirds, they may not hear so well.
