Nice older RV park with many permanent sites. Short term RVs are parked at what they call the dog park, on grass with concrete patio's. The patios stick out of the ground a couple of inches causing a tripping hazard. The water is from a well and is strong with chlorine, dark clothing changes color when washed. There are two nice laundries. The pool and hot tub are old but well kept. There are a number of activities, but short term folks (those staying less than 6 months) are not really encouraged to attend. The golf course is 9 holes and very nice. The Peace River is close by, as is Punta Gorda. Beaches are 35 miles or more. Ft. Myers is 35 miles south and Sarasota is about 4o miles north. Arcadia is 20 miles north. There is a Wal Mart Distribution center across Hwy 17 from the park and at night you can hear the truck back up horns and hear the trucks being loaded making it difficult to sleep. The office staff and park residents are friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable and the owners do not increase the prices often. We would stay here again but probably not for three months.
This park is beautiful. Very clean and well kept. Sites are a nice size. Very quiet here which for me is a plus. Punta Gorda is about 30 miles and beaches just a little farther. The Peace River is almost in the back yard of the resort and shark tooth hunting is abundant. Perfect if you are looking to relax, play golf, and escape the BUSY coast. Loving it here!
We first stayed in this park in 2011 and believed we had found a real gem. The park is clean and well tended. Located close to shopping, beaches and the arts. The staff is friendly and work hard to accommodate. The owner has cleared away residential sites and has added RV sites since our first stay last year. This park has many, many positive amenities. On the negative side...since January 2011, the rates have increased by nearly 64%. The RV row where the office is located is quiet. The RV rows on Doud and Hively Streets are very noisy, with speeding cars cutting through from Rt. 41 to Beneva Ave. The park is about a block from Rt. 41 therefore we get traffic noise from that highway. If you are positoned in one of the sites near Nixon St on Hively, there are homes in total disrepair to look at, with garbage around these properties, looking more like the 'slums', however there is no adjustment in rates for these sites and their view. It seems that 'clicks' develop and appear to be encouraged among the RVer's and this can make some feel very uncomfortable and unwanted especially if you plan to stay 2 or 3 months. On the brighter side, the owners offer some great meals and breakfasts throughout the months and the activities director does a tremendous job with her offers, the exercise room is exceptional. It is just a shame that the owners feel they should be 'like everyone else' and increase the rates substantially, now only the clicks can afford what we first believed to be a 'real gem'.
We spent two weeks here. This is a beautiful campground/park. The sites are very large, squirrels abound which made our cat Vera very happy. She enjoyed sitting in the windshield watching or watching from her leash or pen outside. You may see a gopher tortoise when you are walking or bike riding. And the buzzards are almost always soaring overhead. The Camp Hosts were very friendly and helpful, the park employees gracious. The park is located in a quiet area off the beaten path but is close to the town of Adel for shopping or eating out. Spanish moss hangs overhead giving this park the 'old south' look. The only possible improvement, Wi-Fi. We will revisit.
We have been camping for years. This is the quietest campground I have ever spent nights in, terrific. Close to I-75, close to shopping and Atlanta. Surroundings are beautiful. Camp Hosts are helpful and friendly. Sites are large and very level. We hope to return and possibly stay longer.
There are no ocean front sites, but all sites are close, walking distance, to the ocean. Only one small loop is pet friendly...pets are not permitted any other place at the State Park, even indoor pets are not permitted. If you love dry camping, this is the place to be. Internet was offered at the camp store. Water and dump station are available in one of the loops to fill your fresh water or empty your tanks. Very quiet. Can be very hot in summer months and sometimes the bugs are terrible. The ponies are awesome and will often visit your campsite and or the beach. Located a short drive from Ocean City Md and all of the activities there. Many of the folks camping here have come to Assateague for many, many years and have established life long friendships.
Nice campground/old but well kept. Close to all Cook forest activities. They offer camping in a circle for groups that may be interested. They only have Wi-Fi available at the park office. Can eat out across the road...good food.
Staff was taking reservations when we called for our sites. They indicated that they only had a few sites left in the park and that we could not get the sites requested. On arrival we discovered the park nearly empty, but expected a large influx during our stay, this did not happen. There were only eight other campers in, our table was in bad need of repair, with broken boards with sharp and broken ends. The park is large and could be very nice but really needs some TLC and hard work. The rates are reasonable. They need to look at offering cable and Wi-Fi. Would probably stay again for an overnight.
