New park, still having a few growing pains, but that is expected with a new park. The small canal posted by other rver is really the inter coastal waterway and as far as being under a bridge that is false also. The park is next to the bridge that goes over the inter coastal waterway. The restrooms are very clean, the pool area very nice. The rec room is not a rec room but a community room for groups to use and for potlucks etc. not for kids to run in and out of, as there are not any video games. All roads are concrete, all sites are graved with a curb, patio, and picnic table. Every site has a lit pedestal and there are low light street lamps. They also have seven town homes on their property which they rent out, to those that have family or friends that want to be in the area also. When we were there, there were many rvers with family and friends staying in the town homes and really having a great time and they are more than a few yards away from the RV sites. The Gulf of Mexico is about a mile away or less and there are many restaurants close buy as well as gas stations, drug store and a grocery store. As far as shade you are in Florida and close to the beach. If you want shade better go north, way north. We had a great time and would and will return to this park.
