They get 3 points because the park is well maintained. At the front gate our first experience was, and I quote, "What do you want?" (It was in no way friendly or joking). After telling him we had a reservation and pointing to our names on his list, he proceeded to quiz us on when we made the reservation. Finally, he sent us up to where another friendly chap in a golf cart led us to our site. We told him we could take it from there but he demanded to back us in and claimed 20 years experience. He then proceeded to stand in the wrong spot (couldn't see my blind spot) and issue orders that would run us into a pole. We then proceeded to ignore him and he turned beat red and yelled at me that we were going to run over the cement pad. We saw the pad and were in no danger of hitting it. We then proceeded to back up stopping every few feet to "check" and never came close to the pad. Once in place he was upset that the steps wouldn't reach the pad. I pulled them out and they were dead on to the inch. (I couldn't do that again in a million years.) He then decides the front of the rig must be even with the adjacent "rigs." It wasn't until I moved up to accommodate this that I realized the utilities were all the way to the back of the very deep lot. Without a spare 30amp cord we were stuck with a 15amp extension cord. The sewer would have required 4 - 15ft hoses so effectively we had no sewer for the week we were here. He then checked the electric meter and asked me to sign off, which I did. He then proceeded to argue that it wasn't my signature? I offered to show him my ID, but at this point he jumped on his cart and drove off. He never bothered to tell us the office is closed on the weekends so we walked the 1/2 mile to the office for nothing and didn't have information or access to stuff for the weekend. On Monday when we checked in we talked to the manager about it and he just blew us off. The park is mostly mobile home (park models with lots of add on's) with empty spots filled with RV's. In talking to folks, our experience is fairly typical. If they have a park model that wants your RV site, you will be moved. If it wouldn't have upset my mother who was staying here, I would have pulled out and went elsewhere. The rate reflects PPA.
Price is monthly rate ($400/month). They have different rates for pull through vs back in and for spots close to the beach. Our spot was a standard back in spot. Still only a 5 min walk to the beach. Staff was friendly and very helpful when another park gave away our reserved spot. They offered to let us stay for a couple nights and if we decided to sign up for a month they would put the amount toward the monthly rate. Clean, well kept and convenient location. Lots of snowbirds and plenty of activities at the clubhouse. The only major downside is the grass if full of stickers, so no running around barefoot.
