Looks like they put in the campground in an old drive in theater. There's nothing pretty or scenic here. All night long all I heard was the sounds of traffic because I was right next to the highway. It's a dump. We camped here overnight when the bathrooms were closed, out-of-order. I won't go back.
The check in people were polite but not overly friendly; and they were very quick to add extra charges for water, for sewer, for 50 amp, for tax etc. My discounted price of $28 soon rose to nearly $45 for an overnight stay with all these extra charges. The campground itself is nice, but the management runs a clip-joint for snowbirds. I won't stop here again. Get me once, shame on you; but get me twice, shame on me.
This is a very friendly park where the owners will go all out to please your every need. Nearby is a state park with tubing available. This park is well kept and neat and tidy. You can even rent a travel trailer for a reasonable price, as there are several on site. The people camping here are a mix of locals and snowbirds and this small group made us feel very welcome. We will come back again. The price is right.
Excessively noisy for the price. We were here for two weeks in the 2nd row from the road and from Monday to Friday all we heard was the sounds of construction from across the street. There were machines moving and pounding pylons, constant beeping sounds from machines backing up etc. There was dust blowing across the road all the time. When the workers went home they turned on very loud generators to run pumps, so that when there was no work being done, we still heard constant noise from the massive generators. The office people lied to us when we asked what was the construction for. They said a retention pond was being build. Later we discovered that in addition to the pond, new sewers, an extra lane, and new concrete power poles were being build along 4 miles of roadway. This is a huge project that will take a long time. I walked over to the seventh row in the park before the noises became minimal. They have a nice park here, with lots of activities, the people are friendly, but they won't reduce the price because of these terrible noise conditions from the heavy construction. One day I went into the office and overheard a phone call. Someone was calling in and asking about Punta Gorda RV Park (which is nearby) and I heard the Encore lady say " I have no idea where that park is, but I can take your reservation here." She quoted them full rate and took the reservation. Oh, and if you go to the pool, you will hear the construction sounds because it's right near the roadway. The activities are great and every good thing this park had was spoiled by the construction.
STAY AWAY! This is actually 3 parks in all. Mobile is for small manufactured homes and Sleepy Hollow I and II is for trailers and RVs. Sleepy Hollow I doesn't allow pets. We stayed for 2 weeks in January 2011 at Sleepy Hollow II, and although the park managers were very friendly and caring, this became the worst park we ever stayed at. The rates are cheap though: just $150 a week or under $400 monthly and the park is clean and tidy. These residents own the park and they act like it. They were asking about our business constantly. Park residents were routinely walking through our site and someone stepped all over my sewer hose crushing it. It cost me $12 to replace it. One night gasoline was siphoned from my pickup truck. Gas was at $3.19 a gallon then. I had to buy a locking gas cap and set up an alarm. On Monday of week two I found footprints in the dirt outside the bedroom window of our trailer. It looked as if someone was having a peek at night. I put a yellow light bulb outside to burn all the time after that. No everyone was nosey. Some were indifferent. The resort had a group of French Canadians that kept exclusively to themselves. They totally ignored us. One day a park lady asked me why I went up front six times that day. I told her that "since you've been watching me and must know, four trips were for laundry and two were to take garbage out". While playing shuffleboard at least three ladies came over one by one and stopped us from playing to show us "the proper way to use their court". Also at the clubhouse, there was a gaggle of women that laughed hyena-like constantly and hysterically for no reason whatsoever. They went to every function. On Friday the park was having free hamburgers at the clubhouse and I wanted to sign up. But the resident in charge told me that he has to put us on standby and that after everyone ate if there were any no shows then we could have a hamburger. What nerve! Even soup kitchens don't do that to people. I realized then and there that these people were substantially abnormal. We went to Burger King and resolved not to attend any more of their clubhouse functions or take part in any activities. Honestly for the most part these people were weird. This would be a better park if it had different people in it. I'll never go back even for free. They need to change the name to Weird Hollow. It’s not my kind of place!
