We camped here the last week of 2013. These folks are very focused on assuring excellent service and maintaining an above average facility. Service is the best we've seen!This time of year (around the Holidays) in central Florida one can expect to pay a premium price for a good campsite and that is true here, but it seems to be a good value. The sites are paved and the hookups are very good. Access around campground for vehicle movement is excellent.The additional services (meals- some included, WiFi, cable etc are great!) A few draw backs- but not significant issues- are the sites are short-a problem with overall facility design. Sites are 90 degrees perpendicular to the travel roads. Angled sites would have made parking the rig and possibly site length much improved. The dog runs are rather small and confining- and they need more dog runs of a larger size. Sewer connections are good, but in our case (and some others we noticed)the actual connection was above parking grade making drainage a bit of a chore. A disappointing aspect for us was that the sites- even though well mowed- were very weedy and they do not have any apparent established turf in the area we camped- or have lost control of the turf. And mother nature assured we had a good dose of mosquitoes the week we were here-- but hey that Florida! We will visit here again though.
This is a very convenient well developed park for those visiting Lakeland/Central Florida. It is large and well laid out. Sites are level. The staff is very helpful and cordial and overall the stay was very good. The paved pull through sites are large. The rates are very reasonable for central Florida. Wi-Fi and cable are great. We would rate this park higher, but there are a few nagging problems. The grass has been high the last two visits and the park is quite "buggy" making outside leisure difficult--- so bring the Deet ! (in fairness mother nature has been providing much dampness there of late and that's life in central FL). The fully paved site we were in was covered with thick grass clippings which were wet, rotting and quite disgusting. The concrete pad was severely cracked and becoming deformed. Many of the sites around the park are grass, but are level. On the large pull through sites the separation between the sewer connection and the power/water pedestals is quite a distance, requiring the use of extensions for sewer, water and power. Fire ants are rampant. My wife and I were both bitten numerous times making our visit a bit uncomfortable -- but again that's life in central FL. More control over insects in the campground would be nice, but it is a very large park and such control might be too difficult. Access into the park is relatively easy. Access out of the park (to the left and northbound) is very difficult. One must travel south for quite a distance on Bartow Highway to find a location to turn back to the north if you are headed that direction when departing. We hope a bit more attention can be paid to maintenance in this park , but its definitely one we will visit again.
We find this popular campground to be a convenient and well maintained operation. Its adjacent to the I-24 interstate and exit 1 interchange making access easy. Its very easy for us to use when visiting nearby relatives in the Clarksville area. Some of the sites are a bit short for longer rigs like ours but that's not a big problem- we made it fit. Would be nice to have cable TV. We will definitely be back! Nice pool and all in all a very good park.
This is such a perfectly maintained and nicely landscaped park! It is a model for other campground operators. Very restful with easy sites to access for large sites.Convenient to the interstate and to Mammoth Caves. Great WIFI and plenty of TV channels. Sites were just fine. Momma would have liked a pool and a little better signage getting to the campground would have been helpful, but they were minor issues. Thanks for a wonderful stay to the campground hosts!! We will be back!!
This is a great park for travelers passing along the I-77 corridor. We needed an over night stop for our trek from the north back to the south. Its a perfect location- easy on and off the Interstate with a nice clean well develped park. We have 2 dogs and they really appreciated the new dog parks and large dog walk areas at this campground. Check in with the staff was great and quick. We were set up on our pull through site(which was very level) in 15 minutes. Fantastic Wi-Fi and cable TV service kept us in touch with the rest of the world. The location and quality of the park made it easy to disconnect quickly the next morning and allowed us hit the road pronto the next morning. We will definitly be back again at this park for north- south transits that use the 1-85, I-77, I-81 corridor. Good value.
An outstanding stopover location. Clean, comfortable, well maintained. Pleasant folks at the arrival desk and an easy in and out overnight stop along a busy byway. We will definitely be back here again. Sites not perfectly level, but definitely workable. We were able to pull in, get level enough and be on our way the next day without disconnecting, or a major set up event. Cable TV and Wi-Fi were great. Nice areas to walk and play with our dogs.
