The previous reviews are spot on. They have three sites overlooking the valley with wonderful views facing the west setting sun of the mountains across the valley. The owners are the most gracious and friendly people we have ever met in our motorhoming adventures. They have a motorhome and know what makes a stay outstanding. The sites are level and spacious, with a large concrete pad adjacent to your door. Wi-Fi is present, and the signal appears strong, but we did not use it. They have covered parking for your toad. The water pressure is great, (though mountain cold!). We have typically stayed at other RV parks while visiting this area, but will stay here in the future. They have deer and turkeys that visit at dusk. There are several trails through the hills on the property you can walk along. The owners will give you a tour of their property and the history behind it. They are a great resource for things to do and see. If you are considering visiting this area and want to have a quiet, peaceful place to stay, book your reservations well in advance as I am of the opinion that this little secret is out.
We have stayed at all of the other area "resorts" and this is certainly equal to all of them. The lot owners are extremely friendly, and there was no push to purchase, in fact no one even mentioned it. Wi-Fi was strong, the grounds immaculate and the pool heated. Nice lot sizes, with plenty of space between you and your neighbor. Beautiful clubhouse, with a theater and gym. We stayed on a lakefront lot.
Please understand that my assignment of a "10" is reserved for those campgrounds such as the newer Outdoor Resorts, Cane Creek, or Bluewater Key. We used this location as a mid-way point for Bar Harbor & surrounding areas. The site was huge, clean, and well graveled. The roads were paved and wide enough for our 40 ft. coach & toad. The staff was extremely helpful for this Floridian couple who had never been to Maine. They have a nice playground for kids. We did not use wi-fi, but found our Verizon cell phones working extremely well. We would stay here again if we ever get back this way.
Why the "1". This part of the park we stayed in is beautiful and deserving of a "10", however, it is adjacent to the end of the Oceania Naval Air Base runway. Fighter jets do practice landings from 0700 to 2200 or midnight. They are so close that I could read their tail numbers. For those who have not been around fighter jets, there is no sound suppression while training. Even inside your RV, you could not communicate with one another as they took off and landed. This IS NOT the fault of the Navy. We received no notice of this from the staff when we checked in, and had I looked closer at the ratings on this site, I would have found this issue, so shame on me. After the first jet or so (I do love to watch them) the noise was overwhelming. Hence, we only stayed 2 nights, what we paid for when we checked in. Otherwise. Please understand that my assignment of a "10" is reserved for those campgrounds such as the newer Outdoor Resorts, Cane Creek, or Bluewater Key. We used this location as a mid-way point for the surrounding areas. The site was huge, clean, and paved. The roads were paved and wide enough for our 40 ft. coach & toad.

Beautiful, Tranquil, Relaxing. This is the true definition of a "RESORT" in the same class as the newer Outdoor Resorts, Bluewater Key, and River Bend. This was our second trip here, and we enjoyed it more than our first trip. Everything, sites, views, amenities, staff are first class. This is an owner resort, and they are selling sites, but were not pushy at all. The owner is on site and is a great guy. No, we are not owners and have no intentions of buying, but if we were so inclined, we would here. The lake is awesome. Make time to rent their pontoon boat for at least a half day. They are in the process of changing their name to Lake Greenwood. They have specials ongoing for rentals. Though the resort looks and is remote, you are less than 15 minutes from Greenwood or Clinton, SC. Though our rate was $60 for 3 nights, we received 3 nights free.
We've stayed in "luxury" resorts before, Pelican Lake in Naples, Fl, numerous Outdoor Resorts, Blue Water Key in Key West, this place sets the standard for RV parks. Multiple heated pools, paved level sites, paved roads, plenty of room between the sites, excellent Wi-Fi, awesome staff, Owners area, renters area, clean laundry, clean restrooms, beautiful grounds. This is an up to date facility that is well worth the stay.
Mile marker 14.5 equals 14.5 miles to the center of Key West. You are close enough but far enough away to enjoy one of the most beautiful campgrounds. Anywhere. Has a waterfront on the bay, floating docks, privacy between the large sites, Tiki huts, heated pool, pet area, storage area, paved roads, and most of the owners have upgraded their sites. Pricey, yes, but worth it.
As others have posted, this place had great potential, but now that the bank has it, we can see that the loving care has left. There is no pool, and the office staff was rude when we attempted to ask for a gate card that was not available when we checked in. We probably will not return since the pool was never completed. Florida campgrounds in the summer without a pool does not compute.
Bryn Mawr has been around since I was a child (56 now). The grounds are kept up as well as possible considering you are on the beach. The interior roads are not paved, and yes the sites are tight in some areas. It is a family atmosphere, and is close to St. Augustine proper. However, you have a walkway over the sand dunes that have turtles, rabbits, birds, and you are on the Atlantic Ocean. This is why you stay here.
Sites are paved and landscaped nicely. They are very wide, pull-ups facing the river. The park is quiet, the staff extremely friendly and helpful, and the entire park is exceptionally clean. We will stay here again if we come back.
