We stayed on one of the beautiful premium lots for 9 nights. The lot amenities are something we have never experienced at an RV resort. It was equipped with a nice jacuzzi, gas grill with smoker, sink, benches with fire pit, table & chairs with umbrella, carpeted patio, trash can, landscaping with mulch, hammocks! Your site is cleaned every day (trash emptied, grill cleaned, jacuzzi serviced, patio swept). The owner's live on site and asked us regularly if we were having a good time and if there was anything that we needed. Currently there is a lined sand pool with waterfall and beach to enjoy in lieu of an inground pool, but the inground pool will begin construction very soon. The bathhouse was very clean and there was no charge to do laundry. There is also a cafe inside open for breakfast and lunch, and an outdoor tiki bar area where food is also served. Florida Gateway offers membership packages and also premium lot investments. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning, especially once the pool is ready! This resort will be a 10 when the pool is completed!
We stayed 3 nights in the newer section: large over sized lots, great level concrete pads (double width), 2 sewage hook ups with nice covers. The owner has definitely put some money into the new section with all the concrete. Wi-Fi is free. Also a nice fenced pet playground which our puppy enjoyed! The older section has the shade with beautiful oak trees but the new section has young queen palms which will be nice when they are matured. For the cooler months, we would definitely return. In the summer, it would be too hot without shade and we wouldn't want to stay in the older section since the lots are close. We enjoyed our stay except our cable TV did not work. The office staff said they would report it but they must have forgotten, so check lot 174 for cable before you stay! Also their website says no pets over 35 lbs. The owner said he has to show this way to keep the bad dogs out, but they do allow large dogs. You think you're in the country, but yet great shopping and restaurants are within a couple of miles as well as many golf courses. The only drawback (other than our cable TV not working) was the interstate noise. The park sits next to I-75.
We enjoyed this park very much! The pull thru lots are spacious and level, and some have shade trees which is a bonus in Florida summers. The pool is huge and very clean. The hot tub is nice as well; however it broke while we were there, but maintenance came immediately. There is a nice lodge to gather with friends for games, etc. and a nice variety of books to read. The park is spotless and the folks are exceptionally nice and helpful. We REALLY enjoyed the cafe on site...great specials and delicious food! Grocery stores, etc. are within 5 miles. We plan to return to enjoy the other amenities (fitness center, canoeing, billiard room).
Very clean park! It was nice to park on rocks and have a nice concrete patio and beautiful green grass (no dirt!). The large oaks are beautiful and the "Big Oak" is amazing! It is obvious the owners take pride in keeping this park immaculate. We enjoyed the shade. Great location with grocery store, Wal-Mart, lots of restaurants close by and easy access to I-10. Also excellent Wi-Fi and lots of cable stations. I give this park a 9 only because it doesn't have a swimming pool.
We stayed at this campground in 2008 overnight only and it was OK. However, this year we stayed for 8 nights and were very dissatisfied with many things. When it rains, the grounds are flooded (holes, mud, standing water). Also the staff was very rude. They failed to give us the Good Sam rate and it was a 45 min. ordeal to get reimbursed since they said they do not give refunds. We had reserved as Good Sam and also shown our card at check in so it was THEIR ERROR NOT OURS! They also charge extra for everything! Our family visiting had to pay every day just to come to our site! Visitors can't even use the pool! Also everyone has to wear colored wrist bands. We are easy going people who look for the good and there isn't anything good to say about this park!
It is obvious the owners of this campground have carefully planned and spared no expense on what has been completed so far, and what is currently under construction (the pools, game room and golf course). The sites are all paved and level and have nice lamp posts with site numbers. This park is spotless! I never use the bathhouse/ showers at campgrounds, but it was so nice and clean, I had to try it once! The Wi-Fi was like being at home, very fast. The clubhouse is beautiful, too. We enjoyed our stay and we look forward to many future visits!
