We have stayed at Sleepy Bear for several years in our east coast travels. I have to agree with the last couple of reviews. We stayed at Sleepy Bear, because it was a easy in and easy out. A 18 year old Campground with friendly owners. But they now have a problem. The original I-95 exit #14, to the Campground is being closed and removed. You now have to get off I-95 at exit # 17, and go south 3 miles on the service road to the Campground entrance. When you depart, you then have to go back north 3 miles on the service road to get back on I-95. I hope this works out for them, because they are nice owners. But it is not the same easy in and easy out. It means, with our big rig $5 in extra fuel.
This campground has a nice layout, paved roads and big rig friendly concrete pull-through sites. The sites have full hookups and cable TV. The Manager is very nice, and friendly. What upset us was that our concrete site was 3 to 4" from being level, side to side and front to back. Also the Ad in our RV Campground Directory for Pelican Park RV Resort stated Wi-Fi available. Of course, I assumed that was free Wi-Fi. I assumed wrong, you payed a $5 fee for 24 hours of Wi-Fi service. When we pay $41 to stay at a RV Resort, I think all sites should be level and the Wi-Fi should be free. The Ad for this Resort with big Wi-Fi lettering included in their Ad, was some what misleading. It effected our review.
I agree with the previous review. We camped here before several years ago and this campground back in 1999 was really run down. About 4 years ago this park changed ownership. The new owner has made some improvements and cleaned up this campground. But it is not a "10" campground. It does have long narrow pull-thru sites. The large drainage ditches between the sites are a hazard, cable for the cable TV hookup is laid on top on the ground from site to site. Mud holes through out the roads in the campground. This campground really needs the roads and sites built up with a good gravel base. This land is very low. The drainage ditches need to be improved. Lots of tall pine trees, so you can forget about using your satellite dish. A very nice owner, but he has a lot more work to do before this deserves a "10" rating. I gave it a "7" review because of the parrot in the office. Without the parrot it is a solid "6".
This new Resort opened in Jan. 2008. The Snowbird rate was $25 per night. The Resort has all pull-thur sites. A club-house, pool, open shelter and cabins are to be added to the Resort in near future. It is located about a 1/2 mile from I-95 and exit 171. We will stay here again. This place will only get better.
This is a nice family park. We stayed for 1 night. The Hot Spots Wi-Fi was not working and the pull-thru site was not level. Lots of trees, but we were lucky and got a satellite signal. Nice clean park, but for a overnight stay we would pass.
This is a nice peaceful campground. It does have a narrow road leading to the campground, but is was not a issue. We have a 41' 5th wheel RV. A very beautiful little church located on the far side of the small pond. This is a place to take your family.
We stayed for 1 night in a pull-thru site, with full hookups. We have a 41' 5th wheel and a medium duty truck. We were escorted to our site, without any issues. They have narrow gravel roads and level sites. It is located 2 miles from I-70. The owner is very friendly. We would stay here again. Also the free Wi-Fi is being upgraded.
We stayed for one night. There was no cell phone signal in the park. The park did not have wi-fi, which would have been a plus. Thats why the 7 overall rating. They do give discounts to P.A. and others.
We stop here all the time on our way to and from Florida. Easy in and out. The Campground is close to I-95. But road noise was not a problem. They had a area in the back of the Campground to wash RV's. Our truck broke down while it the Campground. It was in the Ford Service Shop for 2 weeks. Owners were very helpful getting us to the store, and running us to the Ford Dealer.
This is a Gem in progress. The Owners are just great people. They are making improvements on a daily bases. We stayed in our 40ft 5th wheel RV for a few days. I was able to give them some suggestions. The Owners are working hard in making many additional amenities. They were very upfront that the showers and bath house was under construction. If those amenities were needed they referred you to another local Campground. We enjoyed the town of Williams. Also the Grande Canyon visit. Williams, AZ. does have a local train that goes to the Grande Canyon. So if you do not like trains, this maybe an issue. We would go back.
This is a nice little campground. Our daughter lives in Harrisvile. We have seen great improvements in this campground in the past 5 years. The daily camp site rate is $25. I went to the campground to dump our holding tanks in our RV. The dump fee was $20. I thought the $20 dump fee was kind of high. Other than that nice place...
