Nice level paved pads with excellent power/water/sewer hook-up. Clean restrooms. OK cable, Wi-Fi. Nice quiet park with a many winter regulars. Convenient to Mobile, Gulf Shores, Pensacola. We'd consider wintering over here.
Stopped only because we're Thousand Trails members (free with purchase of RV). Given its strategic location at the junction of I-75 and the FL Turnpike, we weren't surprised to find this place PACKED. Staff sent us down the WRONG way to back into a grass site between two BIG oak trees (telephone pole in the way). Once we toured the neighborhood and came from the other direction, we backed in OK. It was deep, giving us room to park the truck. Large laundry. Didn't check out the restrooms or activities. Spent one night instead of the two we'd planned....
Rate reflects a $664/month rate. We stayed here for 1 1/2 months. Nice large park on the lake, as advertised. We had a level gravel site with paved patio facing the lake. Solid water pressure, weak Wi-Fi, except in the early AM when no one was downloading movies. We did see a technician come through while we were there and signal strength got better. Some sites are pretty tight getting onto, but the staff is there to help. Lots of snowbirds who have spent several years here and they led the activities from horseshoes to Bingo. A good site to winter over.
Rate reflects we used a 'one free night' coupon from their web site. This is a destination site for snowbirds owning their own sites. Excellent paved sites, landscaped, with garbage pick-up. If you're headed up or down I-95, consider this as an excellent stopover.
Nice level gravel sites, a bit close, but the park managers guide you in. Good, well-maintained park with a nice pool and a gulf-side marina with tiki hut to enjoy the sunsets. No laundry. We were there in the height of the season, so the prices were a bit steep.
Site: Nice paved, level sites with great utility access. Some shade with pines. Amenities: Wi-Fi is extra, but our Verizon Jet Pack worked fine. Laundry, spa, pool, and clubhouse are clean and well maintained. Cable TV has the basics. Staff: Excellent. They always have something going on here: cribbage, Bingo, the observatory, trips, etc. You can't go wrong staying here long-term or using it as a jump-off for Tombstone, Bisbee, Sierra Vista, etc. We'd stay here again.
Site: Paved access roads to wide, level gravel sites. Our pull-thru was nice and wide, except the maintenance guys had dug a trench between sites and installed conduit and rebar, evidently for lighting, surrounding it with yellow maintenance tape. I noticed this in several locations, but it seemed to be weeks old. It didn't impact our site, but get those hazards fixed. Amenities: Wi-Fi, cable, and water pressure were fine. The laundry has plenty of washers/dryers. Staff: Very friendly. This is an older park with a lot of permanent rigs in the north section. Overnighters seemed to be assigned to the south side. No problem. By October there isn't much green left, but there was plenty of shade. It's located in a notch, so when the air cooled in the evening, it blew thru from east to west. The weather changed the last two days we were there and constantly blew the smog from LA right up into this notch. We couldn't see the mountains 1/4 mile away.
Site: All gravel and relatively level - we have auto-level, so it's not a big deal. Our utility service stand was well built. Huckleberry and salal between sites gives privacy. Pull-thru access was OK for our 36' fifth-wheel. Amenities: Wi-Fi was OK, cable pretty basic. Laundry was small, but clean and useable. Restrooms clean. Management: friendly. You can hear the surf from this park. It's about 1/4 mile to a public beach access - nice walk. Given the other parks we drove by or actually stopped at to check out, we'd stay at Heceta Beach again.
Site: Nice, wide concrete hardstands with well-constructed utility stands. Great landscaping. It's right off I-5, so some might find the road noise a bit loud, but it tapers off into the evening. Facilities: Nice laundry, rec room, restroom facilities. Wi-Fi was adequate. They have only about 15 cable channels. Management. Fantastic. These folks have been in the business for years and have created a superb stop off for anyone traveling I-5. We'd stay here again.
Site: Nicely laid out. We had a concrete pull- thru that was wide enough for our 36' RV. They are grassy and well maintained. The utility stands were well constructed. While our RV has auto leveling, the site seemed pretty level. We were here during a heavy rain and there was a lot of standing water at the site. Amenities: We had both 30 and 50 amp at the site. Cable TV offered 30+ channels. Wi-Fi worked fine. Both the laundry and restrooms were very clean. Garbage dumpsters at the end of each row. No picnic tables. Management: Friendly, but we didn't see them after check-in. If you're looking to stay near Portland, this is as good as you'll find. We'd stay here again.
We stayed here for five months, wrapping up business, and saw constant billing and scheduling changes. We were moved to a new site every month. The basic facilities are there, but were average at best. The pool finally opened after the Fourth of July and closed on Labor Day. Since we were in several sites, we can attest that the Wi-Fi is unusable everywhere except the office and rec room. The laundry and rest rooms were clean and always available. Many sites are narrow and difficult to back in with a 36' RV. They were constantly full all summer, but this is one of the only commercial RV parks on the west side of Puget Sound.
