The park wasn't maintained in any manner whatsoever. The various office managers do not have the necessary skills to deal with customers. The hygiene conditions of their restrooms were deplorable! I could not use the bathroom since it was so nasty and dirty. It appeared as if they hadn't cleaned the washrooms for months! No toilet paper, no hand towels, broken sinks, only one sink in ladies room which was plugged up and disgusting. I complained to the Management and was told that they had annual people that lived there that messed up the campground and that is why it was in the condition it was at the time. This was our second time in two years of staying at this park. The second visit was by accident only. When I registered I told them if the bathrooms were deplorable that I wanted my money back. I was assured that the bathrooms were clean. That is such an understatement. The bathrooms were worse than most out-houses! Disgusting!!! We will never stay here again and have notified Good Sam's not to misrepresent this location in the future with their approval.
Bay Bayou RV is an oasis! The Managers aim to please as many people as possible. Everyone goes the extra mile to assure everyone has a safe and enjoyable stay. The clubhouse is a "bee-hive" of activities. I've enjoyed the Line Dancing Classes, Sewing Classes, Quilting Classes, Water Aerobics, Crocheting Classes, Ladies Mystery Luncheon, Parties, Block Parties, Dances and Special Holiday events. We were also able to participate in a Trip to the Hard Rock Casino this year, which was marvelous. The park also sponsored several trips to the Tampa Bay Downs Horse Race Track along with other various activities. The entire Bay Bayou staff is exceptional. The office staff is friendly, courteous, and helpful. Sometimes they can not always give customers directions, but they all try their best to give the most accurate information. All the employees are marvelous from Maintenance, Security, the gardener, kitchen staff, and the fabulous entertainment director. Bay Bayou has a close network of friends, community activities and volunteers. The members of the park have banded together to organize and perform in the band at most of our social functions. Bay Bayou RV is like a home away from home. The amenities are too many to mention: such as very close distance to shopping, gas, groceries, movies, etc., etc., etc. We love Bay Bayou and have already made our reservation for next years' season as well as the reservations for the Carnival Cruise that is scheduled for February 2010 at an exceptional awesome price. Thank you Bay Bayou staff! Everyone has made me feel right at home and they are now all part of our extended family!
