First of all, I wanna say I appreciate the opportunity to use the passport rate in the summer and the location is good to Gettysburg. The niceties end there. They need to level their sites, it ain't hard so just do it. There lack of enforcing the rules is appalling. There were children playing basketball at 6am in the morning and loud drunk weekenders partying past the quiet hours. The campground has no night security phone number, they they tell you to just call 911. The long term resident across from us was mowing with his red push mower and it flung a rock and nailed the paint on our essentially new 2012 motorhome and yes he chipped the paint. To his credit... he had the side trap shut, but there is so many small rocks in the grass that he needs to take more care when he mows. figure something out because other guys won't be as nice as me. The Wifi is non-existent (worst we have ever encountered in 2 years of full-timing). Water pressure is weak.
If you are a bigger rig, watch out for your tail swing through the gate...they make you take an immediate right turn after punching in your code. The campground was kind of OK, but not really. It was a safe place and halfway decent looking, but had a long list of less than desirable things to us. Really stinky nights with so many people burning fires. The voltage read lower than I'd like ( it was 109 to 115 Volts). Lots of barking dogs in the morning. We heard a couple just barking away for long periods of time, this at 6 AM too. Management should really nip that problem in the bud. It wasn't that easy to level. It is one of those parks where most motorhomes' front wheels are way off the ground. They need to add the leveling of sites to their "to do list", for sure. Wi-Fi was almost nonexistent. My biggest problem was the office switching the pass code on me with zero warning. I had to walk in during rain and ask why the gate wasn't working. They said they change the code every week which was unbeknown to us. I did notice a multitude of other people doing the same thing, so we weren't the only ones with the problem. If you change the code every week and someone checks in mid-week and stays for a week, give them the both codes. Then on our last night, they actually stuck some very young and very loud tent campers on the RV site next to us, that's a new one and that move fully completed our disappointment in this campground. It had potential, but no need to return. Also, our dolly hitch bottomed out on asphalt as we left the campground (in the "big dip" near the trash cans).
Nice park with nice staff. Decent size sites with most of them level. Very, Very stinky nights from all the campfires. Almost every night was bad and obnoxious with all the smoke. Wifi was great during the day, but as the sun went down so did the wifi quality. Very convenient to the metro stations (don't try to drive to the National Mall especially Mon thru Fri). At night I could hear the low hum of the interstates that surround it, but really not bad at all. Very expensive to stay here, hopefully I don't have a reason to go back to DC.
If you are 40 ft or bigger and they put you on the sites with the concrete pads on the West side, you may want to back out of them. Some people were hitting their back hitches trying to pull out forwards. Too much of an incline pulling out forwards. If you look at the concrete slabs you'll notice scrapes. Nice campground otherwise and would return again. Rate reflects weekly rate.
They take cash only, hmmm that was very interesting. Also, good luck trying to level. I have a 40 ft motorhome and I got nowhere near level after 30 minutes of trying. Watch out for the speed bumps on the east side of the property. They are impossible to hit straight so everything in your refrigerator and cabinets will be thrown around big time. No use in returning to this one.
Many sites are in need of leveling. The water placement for a motor home was way way too far back. When leaving, the turn from the campground onto I-85 North is wicked tight if you tow and your RV is longer than 36ft. Find another way, know that you'll have to disconnect your car, or skip this campground. Other than that, it was okay.
Nice place to stay. Wifi was good to great most of the time. Great access to the beach and to any parts of town. Good bike riding possibilities. They do have a restaurant on site that serves breakfast and I think they do a fish fry once in awhile. The bathrooms are awesome. No motorcycles allowed, FYI.
*** PLEASE NOTE THIS FIRST PART: If you drive a bigger rig be careful if you are heading towards Charleston on Maybank/Hwy 700 (per the campground directions). The right turn from Marybank Hwy onto Riverland Dr is SHOCKINGLY TIGHT. I can't believe the campground directs people this way. The curb is all broken up from people going up and over the curb so damaging a tire is not out of the question. The light pole also has high and low scrapes on it so some people have even hitting the telephone pole. This is a VERY DANGEROUS turn so if you can find another way, please do. The campground is very nice. Lots of open space areas, trees, and bike trails. Convenient to everything. Staff is friendly. Wifi was okay to decent most of the time, but we did have to call a few times during rain and tell them to reset their wifi (each time it did work and the wifi came back on). They didn't always believe me that the reset would fix it, but it worked each time. They need to get this problem figured out. Would stay again.
Just to correct the last review, Savannah is 21 miles away, not 50 miles. Okay, my review: I think the reviews for this place are a smidgen too generous. It definitely does not deserve 8, 9, or 10 stars. No Way! Not real sure what this developer was thinking with the design of this place and it seems like he only went halfway with it. The sites are strangely elevated high above the road (elevated 4 or 5 foot higher than the road). The sites themselves are dirt/sand/weed/grass, mostly soft sand. If it were to rain and you had to leave next day, I'm sure the ground would be super-duper soft and you'd possibly sink in. We did hear trains at night (at maybe midnight a couple times). One good thing, the Internet was really good most of the time but the park was only about 20% full when we were there. We also had a swarm of huge black hornet looking things that kept getting into our rig (3 of them in 5 hours and we had the door closed). Not sure if the place can spray for those or not. I didn't appreciate the guy in the golf cart blowing the dirt off the road onto everyones rigs. This happened a couple days out of the week. That practice really needs to be rethought. The workers at the place seemed friendly.
This place is the absolute gold standard. 10 stars! Quiet at night, great place to bike, walk, or run. Golf course on site, restaurant and bar on site. $6 bingo was great on Tuesdays. It does last 3 hours though so get ready for a long session. You can see little alligators swimming in the local ponds. This would be the place to retire when the time comes. Everyone was very friendly. Realize that there is no Wi-Fi at your site, you'll have to go the parking lot outside the office to get, but they do have a little tent there with some tables and chairs. Wi-Fi there was very strong.
Very well run park. Nice people working there and friendly guests too. We spent a week there. No internet at site but strong at office and around pool. Maybe a little pricey but still liked the park. Very quite at night and early morning.
I was parked in an odd spot with for my 42 ft rig even though I made reservation 11 months ahead of time. Tree in the middle of my pull thru, cracked concrete patio block that has been run over many times so it has very sharp edges to potentially pop your tire & you have to run it over to fit into your spot, and an electric post position not helping the entire situation. The website states free wifi, but realize if you do the monthly rate then you will have to pay extra for internet. It is only free if you pay the daily rate. Nice 1 mile walking path.
Seems like a RV park on the downhill slide. Worst water I ever encountered, hopefully doesn't have anything to do with the site waste water treatment facility. One guy said the whole town of Venice has bad tasting and smelling water, so who knows. It literally tastes like pond water. I'd say this park is barely big rig friendly. Careful of low hanging trees the entire 1/2 mile trip to your campsite AND within the campground itself. Some of these thick branches can cause some major damage and I'm shocked they haven't remedied the problem. It really shows the laziness when that they can't take a small amount of time to trim up their tree branches. Also be ready to have your fillings shook out from the huge potholes in the road if it rains prior to you arriving or leaving. They charge way too much. Wi-Fi is about a 3 out of 10 and comes with many limitations. There are better parks in the area, just search slightly further out, it will be fine because not much to do around Venice anyways. Won't be back. Rate reflects monthly. Stayed here in a motorhome.
Rate reflects a the monthly rate. This campground is very cliquey. If you are an outsider, you are treated differently. For Example: They made me move my tow dolly because it was partially parked on some grass. I really don't mind this rule, but I DO mind when I'm the only on who has to follow it. As I was bringing my dolly to storage, I noticed 8 entire cars parked on the grass. Remember, its cliquey...different rules for outsiders. There are plenty of other RV parks to choose from and if you have a RV longer than 36ft, you'd be well advised to go elsewhere. Roads are tiny. The streets are so skinny that two RVs probably couldn't pass one another if going opposite ways down any of the roads. This RV park sure does the absolute minimum for there guests. Enjoy your 700 yard walk to the only one location to bring your garbage. Shorter walk if your lucky to get a spot on the NW part of the property. Site RV pad is only 9ft wide and roads are only 19ft wide. Offensively high speed bumps with chunks on concrete taken out of them. The concrete patio was set way back so we got to enjoy tracking wet grass, wet leaves, and wet yard refuse into our rig. Stepping out right on the constantly wet grass. Luckily our time there is over and done.
Convenient location for exploring Oklahoma City. The park has some steep sites, but not too bad. It is actually a cool and unique lay out. My first week was good, but the second week I ran into some problems. They have somewhat high voltage there. By high, I mean reaching 132+ Volts. It kept popping my surge guard and shutting down all my electric. Hence stopping my electric heat pump dead in its tracks. I mentioned the problem to the guy at the counter. He said he'd take it to the owner and that they actually had their electrician on site that day. Then, nothing. I heard and saw nothing. We actually stuck around through most of the day figuring that the electrician would come up and check things out. Nothing, I guess management did not really care. I rate the customer service a 3 out of 10. I was afraid to run my electric heat pump and thus ended up using 1/2 of my propane running my furnaces. It usually takes me 12 months to use 1/2 of my propane. Watch out it you have a surge protector.
All recent comments are accurate, I'll just reiterate. The Good: Large, long sites, huge roads, the whole place looks brand new. Nice they have a pool even though it wasn't open when we were there. Wi-Fi was pretty decent, but park was only about 1/3 full. Free shuttle to casino is nice, walking path, and overall pleasant atmosphere and views. The Bad: The person who designed the utility locations is not an Rver. I'd say in most sites the sewer was elevated too, the entry points to the sites need to be a few feet wider, not all the sites are level (I had to move once, my first move ever), and absolutely zero signs directing you to the RV Park section.
Probably the nicest campground we've stayed at with price and quality in mind. Everything looks brand new. They take a lot of care in keeping their sites looking tip top. The security was thorough with people at both gates and also traveling within the park. The coffee was spectacular. They have a decent restaurant on site and a couple of swimming pools. Wifi was good, we where located near the office. We stayed here a month. I was Impressed!
This place is a hole! When I pulled in to park by at the office, this a guy in a big rush to park his huge truck almost backed our 2012 motorhome. I honked my horn and he had the gall to shake his head at me. I proceeded to the office. I asked if the have room for a 42ft motorhome, and they seem confused. After about five minutes, they told me they "think" so. After experiencing their lack of knowledge and looking at all the oil rig workers living there, we decided to move on. As we exited, we noticed the park is pretty tight with people parking their toads out in the street.
