Rate is based on one month and does not include the very high electric bill due to the cold weather during December. Park is clean and has a nice, though small, beach on Santa Rosa Sound. Gulf beach is a short drive over the causeway. Sites are somewhat tight. Road noise was excessive for our taste and the almost nightly "bombing" practice by the nearby Air Force Base can be unnerving. Not much to do in the area. The cold weather diminished our enjoyment and there isn't much to do in the vicinity. We had originally reserved through January but had to leave at the end of December. We greatly appreciated that fact that half our deposit for January was refunded. Doubt we would stay here again. One time in this area was enough for us and we don't tend to return to places as there are so many other places to see and experience.
Stayed in the Preserve Estates section restricted to Class A vehicles. This section has a private clubhouse with full kitchen, pool, spa, fireplace, TVs, and pool table. The sites are for sale but few seem to have been purchased and developed at this point. Within the park there is a fitness facility, recreation room, adult lodge, laundry, another pool, and an on site restaurant with good food. There is a great BBQ place just up the road. We were surprised that during our month long stay no one approached us to determine our interest in purchasing a site. If that is always the case it's no wonder few have been sold and prices for those that are available have been drastically reduced. Check in was painfully slow and disorganized. Probably wouldn't stay again because, been there done that applies. Not much in the area to do.
By no stretch of the imagination should this be classified as an RV park. It is a mobile home park pure and simple. Therefore the park is much less RV user friendly. Access roads are tight and backing into sites can be a challenge. RV's are consigned to being sandwiched in between mobile homes - not the best situation for the RV set. Since our last stay in 2004 this place has been overrun with permanent residents. Amenities are clean and activities seem plentiful. There is controlled access to the beach across the road. Park is secure with key card access. Most likely would not return as we prefer parks that are indeed geared to the roving RVers.
This park is very well maintained. Everything is immaculate from the pool to the showers to the laundry and the grounds. Check in was painless. Sites are well laid out. Great to have full services including Wi-Fi without any additional charge as is often the case. Wish the sites were a little wider. This park would be a 10 if not for the location. Road noise from I-95 is constant and there is often the smell of paper mill in the air. For those reasons don't think we will return.
Wonderfully laid out park. Lots of privacy. So quiet at all times of day and night you can hear the surf. Great for biking and the alligators appear daily. Wi-Fi reception with Verizon Mi-Fi painfully slow and TV reception erratic. Would stay again but sure need to plan ahead in order to get a site, especially with full hookups.
Check in was smooth and staff friendly. Wi-Fi works well although a new code must be entered daily, not sure why. Nice small lake. Place clean and well maintained. Pull thru site not as long as most KOA's so had to unhook dinghy. Near two major roads but noise tolerable. Noise within the park another story. One afternoon it was the leaf blower, then were awakened by tree trimming, take down and stump grinding at, get this, 8AM. Ridiculous. Then it was the power washing around the office building. I understand wanting to keep the park neat and clean but at what cost to the customer? Might return for an overnight only since I-95 access is very close.
The rate is based on a four month stay. Things have changed since we were last here in 2007, and that's not a good thing. The park models have, and are, taking over, and the true RV is relegated to the less desirable slots. With all the park models being set up it's like living in a construction zone. The whine of saws and the noise of nail guns begin too early. Management should key into the discontent since most we have spoken to will not be returning. They are nickel and diming with fees for trash pickup (only twice a week at your site - a joke) and sewer. I guess next thing will be to charge for water. The Wi-Fi still is terribly weak. Thank goodness for our Verizon Aircard. It's a shame that this park has forgotten that it was the RVers who made them successful in the beginning because the facilities are very nice but that doesn't make up for the shortcomings. And, to charge a fee to change sites is outrageous. Sorry to see what has become of this park as we will now be on the search for another warm location where RVs are welcome and their needs are understood.
Our stay didn't start out on a good foot because the young man at the front desk was somewhat rude and inhospitable. Being the slow season we were given a choice of sites. Sites are terraced which allows for good views of mountains. Wi-Fi was iffy but Verizon aircard worked well. All sites have full-hookups. Convenient to downtown Santa Fe and would probably stay here again. Enjoyed the Farmers Market.
Wonderful location with easy access to all Taos has to offer. Well landscaped with good site separation. Roadways are gravel and somewhat dusty at this time of year. Easy access to site within park. Very quiet. Wi-Fi worked great. Front desk friendly. Terrific mountain views. No cable available but satellite worked fine. Would definitely stay here again.
Good, quiet location. Pull-throughs not yet available for use. Front desk friendly. Given tour to select site and escorted once we made our selection. Had a perfect view of Pike's Peak out our front window. While they list Wi-Fi as an amenity, there is an additional charge to use Tengo. They should change it to Wi-Fi "available" to indicate extra fee. Unbelievably they do not have cable TV. We would definitely return.
