The nightly rate is based on a monthly rate. The daily rate was $79 and up plus the hefty Florida tax. The front desk personnel were very pleasant and helpful. As written by other reviewers, there are nice touches to the amenities. There were two shortcomings worth noting. The first was the cable TV - the only use for it was to get the local national affiliates. And, the second was the Wi-Fi. It worked well when there were a dozen or less units at a time. If it got much higher, it was unusable, and you had to rely on your own set up. Note, there is no check-in lane. Entering the resort and parking nearest the office blocked one exit road. The month we were there we noted at least a half dozen times where campers exiting would have to have the incoming vehicles move. We will be returning.

The nightly rate is based on Good Sam discount. We spent one night here in what they call the overflow sites. They are pull through sites near the office. It must have rained fairly hard prior to our arrival, because though the campground roads were paved, there was mud surrounding our site. The campground is listed as big rig friendly, but it would be impossible to make many of the turns in there. Many of the sites looked as if the owner/renters had been there for years. The sites were not particularly large, but one could extend an awning if so desired. A cafe was on-site with delivery to sites up until 7 p.m. The food was adequate and the portions for the price were good. We'd likely not return, even though it was convenient.

The office staff were very helpful and friendly with our reservation. The campground had an overwhelmingly large number of permanent mobile homes (well kept), but there were sites for renters. People in campground were friendly. While we had a large rig, and the park purported to be for large rigs, the only way we could exit our site was to drive the wrong way on a one way street. The electric service was 50 amp, but on a 120V circuit, thus you couldn't run three roof units at one time. The manager said they were in the process of upgrading to 240V service, but it would be a year before they got to them all. We would return here of a one night stay if in the vicinity.

The rate was based on a weekly stay. The office staff was very efficient and friendly. The resort landscaping was immaculate. All sites have large concrete pads. The resort is an ownership facility, so sites vary as to amenities. At $90/night, I would have expected some type of outside sitting tables and chairs. My big disappointments of a place purporting to be one of the best was the Wi-Fi, or should I say lack of Wi-Fi. The only connections were at the office, clubhouse, and laundry. Also, the layout of this 120-acre facility was questionable. Unless you had a golf cart you would have to drive to the clubhouse and the pool, depending on which site you were placed. The people were very friendly, and there were many activities available to owners and guests. I wouldn't return.

While the campground lists 55 sites, about half of them are for seasonal rentals. Sites in Section C, the pull through ones, are not shaded and nor level. In fact, the first site we were assigned was so unlevel we had to request another. While the pool is nicely equipped with furniture, its size is very small. Front desk staff efficient and pleasant. The Wi-Fi is very slow. Would use again, because of its proximity to activities we frequent.

It has been a while since visiting this campground. About three years. While it still ranks up there for cleanliness and site size, we were disappointed to see they are beginning to let campers have permanent sites. At check-in, there was only one employee to handle incoming guests, answer the phone for reservations, and handle the cash register for campers wanting supplies from the story. It took us 10-15 minutes to get checked in with all the interruptions, even with advanced reservations. With a hefty daily rate of $69, it seems like there would be some form of cable TV. Our site was not satellite-friendly, which left much to be desired. The Wi-Fi, while free, was very slow.

This is as nice as it gets. The sites are privately owned. They are very large, and all of them have nice landscaping. The resort has a large pool, hot tub, six tennis courts (lighted), and is gated. The laundry room, showers, and restrooms are immaculate. The resort is within walking distance of a major grocery chain, drug store, and a number of excellent restaurants. You are within walking distance of the beach (1 mile). The Island has many miles of asphalt bike paths which go by the resort. Far enough away from the major thoroughfare to be tranquil. We come here often and are never disappointed.

The campground is directly beside Charlotte Motor Speedway and ZMax Drag Strip. If drag racing is taking place at the time you are here, your entire RV will shake. This is bare bone site prep. Sites are large, but have only large, gravel foundation. There are a very few sites with any grass or shade. Each site has a picnic table. The water pressure is very good, and all roads are paved with easy maneuvering for large RVs. We use this campground only because it is close to the venue we frequent in Charlotte.

For a city owned and operated campground, it is quite nice. It is situated on Oak Hollow Lake, and a few sites actually adjoin the lake. About half the sites have paved, shaded landings. The other half have only graveled area with little shade. Sites in B & D sections are small, but deep. The wi-fi is very poor. Water pressure is adequate, but not stellar. Even though it is in the city, one would think it lies in the country. A quiet, peaceful setting. Would and have stayed here often.
