This is the worst park I have ever been in. Now I know how the minorities were treated in Alabama in the early 60s. The realty broker is one of the most unprofessional, disrespectful people I have ever had the unpleasant opportunity to have dealings with. This is mostly park models. The call it a resort, but it is a low class trailer park. The chief of security uses profanity all the time and calls his employees names. The residents treat you like an old shoe. The facilities are no better than any other campground I have been in. I would never go back and do not recommend anyone else come here. We had a guy that started drinking at 8AM everyday and then drove his golf cart around after he had about 10 beers. Management knew it, but never said anything to him, even after he yelled at renters. What a jerk!

The nicest thing about this park was the staff. The roads are in major need of repair. The roads were narrow, cracked, broken, bumpy and had potholes. I really needed my coach to have 4 wheel drive. It was uphill and UNLEVEL. I was told we could use our sat TV and we could not. The bathrooms were either old or not clean I couldn't tell. For a $40 a night price it ranks with a resort and resorts have cable TV and this park did not. I did not see any pull throughs that would accommodate a big rig. This is a terrible park and we will not be back.

This park has come a long way in a year. The owners and daughter are the nicest people you will ever meet. There are long pull throughs that are very wide. Good power and good water pressure with good water. Easy on and off I-10 with shopping and restaurants close by. Just minutes from the Naval Air Museum and many other attractions. The owner of the park watches out for all of his guests and does not allow bad renters. Great cell-phone service and good Wi-Fi. You will not regret a stay for a night or a month at this park.

This campground has nice interior roads, level concrete sites, good power, good water pressure, but we had a problem with brown water. We were not alerted to the terrible sediment in the water and it caused us to go through 3 filters in a matter of weeks. The park is adequate but not really a resort. Workout equipment was in need of repair. Wi-FI was limited at best while on your site. Hwy 19 road noise was loud but not intolerable. This is an owner's park and we were treated very well with one exception that was terrifying. *ALERT!* While we were here, my wife was verbally assaulted by the owner of site 237. She was walking our dog at the edge of his property and he came out of his RV and started screaming at her to get her dog off his property and not come back. She thought he was going to kick our dog or hit her. I informed the manager and he told me he was aware of the problem as he had several complaints about this guy. He asked me to write a complaint letter. I did and brought it to him and sent a copy to the Crystal River Sheriff's Dept. When I brought the letter to the manager, the President of the Board was there and read the letter and had a smirk on his face after he read it. I discovered that he has done this to several other women walking their dogs and one women that was walking her cat! The manager never confronted the owner of site 237 about the complaints and the new President of the Board denied any knowledge of any complaint. The manager told me the same guy told another renter that there was a petition to not allow renters that work at the power plant. I guess this park feels it is funny to have the owner of site 237 act in this manner because they have done nothing to discourage it. The same guy drove by me in his golf cart and screamed, "Are you leaving yet?" This person is rude at best and the park management does not appear to be concerned. This could be a nice park but the bad attitudes by the site owner and management makes it unappealing.

First let me say that the lot owners are wonderful people and this review is based on facts not opinions. This place has the worst manager of any campground I have stayed at in 34 states. The manager has no clue as to who comes in the park or even who stays in the park. There is not lighting in the park at night. The upper section has many ports built on owners sites. The lower section if a security nightmare. Boaters just drop in and park and the manager has no clue. I had to call the Sheriff's department due to an event that was caused by the manager's incompetence. Sites are wide once you get in but the interior roads are very narrow and you have to seesaw your rig to get into them. No cable and no amenities at this park. Pretty and quiet park but calling this a resort is like calling Detroit a tropical paradise. Kids run through site and play around parked RVs and the manager did not seem to care. I am sure the owners have all written wonderful reviews in order to get people to buy a lot and there are a bunch for resale. Lock everything if you stay here. The cost should be half for what you get. 15 miles to Wal-Mart and 10 to anything else. We will not come back.

What a refreshing nice little peaceful woodsy campground. The owner's husband must have had the greatest sense of humor as you will find out when taking a leisurely stroll on the walking trail. The ponds are full of fish and turtles that make you forget the hassle and bustle of everyday life. The power and water pressure were very good and the sites are very level. Lots of shade if that is what you are looking for. The owner runs and very good park and makes sure all her RVers are happy. Not all the amenities as other campgrounds but the peaceful atmosphere makes up for it. Several long term campers and all are very friendly. This is the only campground we will stay at when in the Athens area.

Park is beautiful and facilities are very good. However: bring your bug spray as the sites are infested with ants and many had bees (yellow jackets and bumble) and beetles. If you are not getting bitten by ants or have then all over your outdoor things you are getting chased by bees. While we were here 2 work campers got stung and one had to go to the hospital. Beetles are everywhere. Sites are not real level and the road noise is unbelievable. Be prepared to hear the owner's wife complain about every camper in the place if you go in the office. I think her attitude is give me your money and shut up.

After staying in parks around the country, it was fantastic to finally find a Resort that lived up to its designation as a "Resort". Bella Terra was everything advertised and more! Beautiful sunsets, Quiet nights, friendly RVers, immaculate facilities and on and on. The staff is second to none and our contact was awesome. This resort is only minutes, yes, minutes to anything you could ever want or think of wanting! If you only do one thing for yourself as a Class A motorcoach owner this has to be it. This is the most "comfortable" RV place anywhere! Well, at least in the 33 states we have been in!

Very nice park. The owners are very nice and staff was just as kind. Great for a short stop over. Park was very clean and quiet. We will camp here again.

We stayed here for a couple of days. Park just opened in Nov 08. Owners are very nice and helpful. Park is very clean except for a few long term 5th wheelers. On one side of me they let there dog out without a leash and it went the bathroom by my coach everyday. It was absolutely disgusting. The other side had 3 motorcycles that came and went at all hours. I saw dogs running loose all the time in the park. This park will go down hill very quickly if dog rules are not enforced. Rating is based on dog problem.

First we were told you pulled in and you can but your hookups are on the wrong side if you do that. Also if someone pulls in and you don't you get to become close friend because they will be in your site. We asked the rate and were told $25. We reserved a space and pulled in and were told our site was 35+ tax. They put us on the water side but on the next row it would be $25. They don't tell you that and that is wrong. If you have a dog and you walk it on a leash you would be the only one doing that. Dog run all over and owners don't pick up so watch where you walk. There are NO amenities. I'll give them one point for the view and one point for a level site. This is a rip off and we will not stay here again.

This is a monthly rate and does not include electric. One of the best run parks in the country. Owner and his staff are always looking to help you in any way they can. Sites are level and gravel. Private rest rooms and showers. If you are in the Dallas area this is where you should stay. Big rig friendly. Some road noise from I-20 but this park is worth it.

This is a month rate and includes cost of electricity. This is a convenient park to the hill country and Boerne shopping. All the staff members were very helpful. A very clean park. Our site was not level. Most of the big rigs had blocks under their wheels and jacks and so did we. There is easy access to I-10 but the negative was the highway noise.

First let me state the the 2 managers of the park are super accommodating and kind to a fault. There are rules in the park but no one obeys them. The river sites slope to toward the river so bring your blocks if you own a big rig. The park has severe high voltage problems. My surge protector shut off 5 time at 132v.(5 times that I know of). The homes parallel to the park all have dogs and they bark all day long. Dogs are left tied up outside all day in the park. Unregistered undesirable people come through the park and go to the island all day and night. Sites are grass for the most part. Management is aware of all these problems. The permanent (many) residents were very friendly.

The manager of the park was wonderful. This is a park that sells deeded lots. The developer was not nice and actually rude. The park is new but will need much work in the future due to the developer's inability to design the park efficiently. The run-off drains were in the middle of the roads and the water ran around them. The roads were narrow and it is impossible to back a big rig in without going on your neighbor's lot. Pull throughs would be a stretch for a big rig but easy for a 5th wheel. Insects were everywhere. Now for the good stuff. All the rental sites were concrete, wide and level. There is a small cafe in the campground and the food is Awesome. The residents that live there are some of the best and nicest people we have ever met. Campground is close to anything you need.

The manager was very nice. This was just an overnight stop and fit the bill. Clean, wide site and level. We would stop here again when passing through.

First, if you use the pull throughs there are no sewer hook ups! The restrooms were nasty. There was a party going on well into the night and to say it was loud would be an understatement. The next day there were beer cans in the road and around the campground. It resembled a fraternity party from Animal House. There are ant mounds everywhere. If you can overlook these things it is an OK overnight stop. The roads to the park are very good but once in the park it is very narrow for a big rig. Once you register you have to circle the store and you had better be good to squeeze around to get back to your pull through site.

The rate is based on a monthly rate. What a nice park. The managers of this park are the best of any park we have been to and we have been from CA to ME. They want everyone to be happy and enjoy their stay. The park was very clean and well maintained. You always saw one of the managers working around the park to keep it immaculate. This is a BIG Rig friendly park! Wide roads and the pull-throughs are huge. Easy on/off access to the interstate without the noise. Great water pressure and no glitches on power. There is lots of shade. The sites were very level. We will come back to this park anytime we can.

A very clean park. Mostly has a park model park units but they really do accommodate RVer's. Easy pull throughs for big rigs. The staff are very helpful and friendly. This park has all the amenities a snowbird park would have and everything works! Sites were gravel and level. Park was at times little noisy from trains and jets but not enough to prevent us from coming back.

Easy swings for big rigs. Not much here other than the basics. Overpriced for just a field with hook ups. The road going to the park is bumpy and needs repair. The owner was very nice and also helpful. This if OK for an overnight stop.

Very well run, clean convenient park. Every staff member we met was very helpful. The sites are all back ins. There is NO modem hookup! Big rig friendly with wide streets. This really is an RV park unlike 99% of the other parks in the area that are mobile home parks acting like an RV park. We will definitely stay here when in the Phoenix area.

THE WORST site for level pads. Every pad is concrete but I tried everything I could to get level and could not (#62). They gave me 4 other lots to try. #49 wasn't level and the sewer pipe was crushed in. #48 better at level but again the sewer pipe was crushed. #47 good sewer pipe but not level. Each of these pad were at least a 4% grade off level. Small RVs or 5th wheels don't have my wheelbase so they could find a level patch. This is not a big rig friendly park. Other RVers parked their cars in vacant spots to you would have to go find the owner to get on that lot. Good Luck at that. We had a "Rent an RV" come in and they had a pitbull and another dog that they immediately tied to a tree and left them outside. The grass between pads was at least 6 inches high. Some picnic tables were destroyed. The train comes through on a regular basis and every so often it lets you know by blow its whistle. The park must be close to a high school because in the early morning you hear the drum band practicing. The staff doesn't answer the phone most of the time. There was a huge mud hole at the front left corner of the pad. You can not leave your tow attached if you are a big rig. This is the last time I will ever stay here.

Overall a very pleasant park. We will absolutely stay here again. Right from the minute you walk through the door the owners make every effort to make you feel comfortable. Sites are all pull throughs and very long, wide and accommodating. This IS a big rig park! You are escorted to your site. Laundry and restrooms are always clean. We had no problems with our electricity and we have a surge processor that would have indicated high or low current. We felt at home and secure. Sites were as close to level as I have seen in my travels through 33 states. Small stock pond at the rear of the park. Check out a movie, it's free, and relax.

No frills park but super nice. Nice wide pads for big rigs. No kids and that is a major plus. No real amenities but we don't need all the kid stuff. Very quiet and clean. We will stay here every time we come through. Best park we have been in, in a long time. Owner was very nice and very helpful.

Just awful. Someone took a piece of land and put hook ups on it. I couldn't tell where the roads ended and the campsites started. We were approach by a panhandler that lives in the park. We reserved a pull through and when we arrived we were told there were none left. The lady was very rude borderline pychotic. Dogs ran loose in the park. If you washed oily, grease filled rags in the washers it may clean them up because they were nasty. This park should be condemned. We unfortunately camped here because it was late and needed to get off the road to rest.

Very nice, clean, well laid out park. Easy in/out access of sites for a big rig. Immaculate laundry. Well stocked store and very friendly staff. Well worth the stop.

This is a member park and one of the reasons we will not renew our membership. First come first serve campground. That should not be for a membership park. The park itself was dusty and dirty. You had to be on a waiting list for sewer hook ups and all of them were near the pool and lots of kid noise. Interior roads were narrow, unlevel, dusty and not well maintained. Restrooms were below health standards. I expect more from a membership park because of the fees but the owners of this membership must be putting the fee money in their pocket because they are not spending it on upkeep of their parks.

One of the worst campgrounds in the United States. We called ahead and asked about overhanging branches and were told there were none. Wrong! Our site was not big enough for a big rig and should have been designated for a pup tent. The utilities were on the wrong side of the coach! The interior roads could have been used for a motocross event and were too narrow. They charged you $8 just to come in the park. What a rip off. This park should be used for tents only and should actually be shut down. We will never come back. The lady at check in was one of the rudest people I have ever met.

Nice little park for an overnight stay. Sites were long but not level the entire length. Easy in/out access for a big rig. Managers were very nice. Laundry is free and very clean. Very small clubhouse but clean and quaint. Some road noise but not enough to matter.

When you enter the park you have to play ring around the rosy to check in. That means you have to go around a circle, stop, check in and then follow a person around the circle again to go to your site. The sites are tooooo narrow for a big rig with slides. One of my slides hung over the neighboring sites pad! There is a 6 inch drop off on each side of the pad. You had better get to know what you are doing or you could blow a sidewall! The park is located next to a residential area and one of the homeowner's dogs barked all night. A rude trailer owner next door came home at 1AM and set his loud car alarm off twice trying to set it. First, if your horn sounds when you are setting your alarm just use your key, stupid. Don't wake others around you! Two thirds of the park was empty and they put me in between the one third that was full. How stupid is that? The restrooms were under construction and were nasty. The interior roads were paved but, like the pads, very narrow. The pull throughs require you to unhook your toad and are 45 feet long. My motorhome is 40'. We were lied to and told we did not have to unhook our toad! We only stayed here one night and will never stay here again. I find it hard to believe someone would spend $44 dollars a night to stay in this park. Even the Passport America's $18 dollar rate is too much to be in a sardine can.

The pull through sites are back out sites if there is someone parked across from your site. Very hilly and muddy after rain. Campground needs more maintenance and attention to detail. The seasonal people we met were very rude.

What a wonderful park! We had the best time. The owner were fantastic and very helpful. It was like everyone was family. Easy pull throughs for big rigs. Easy access to many of Vermont's treasures. We already made plans to come back next year!

You really need a 4wd do go through this park. The interior roads were terrible. This park has a problem with low voltage. My surge protector shut down 5 times in 3 days. I mentioned the low voltage to the manager and his response was "yep, we have low voltage. As you get further away from the clubhouse it gets worse". He made no mention to fixing it our moving us. Someone left their dog in their trailer. The dog barked constantly. I told the owner and she was very rude that I bothered her with such a petty complaint. We will never stay here again.

A diamond in the rough. We looked all around Little Rock and this is definitely the best. Big Rig friendly. I had no problem swinging in a 40' rig in the pull-through. Owners are very helpful and very friendly. Everything was very clean and maintained. No shade trees but I like it so I don't have to get up on the rig and sweep off leaves. This is the only place we will stay in Arkansas. They have plans to add even bigger pull throughs in the future.
