First problem is the age of the travel park, small narrow and tight. Second problem being charged a resort fee on the invoice for $6 “where’s the resort?” Most sites are grass with most units over the age 20 years of age. If it rains its best to stay put for an additional day to allow the site to dry out or it’s a mud pit. This is yet another string of encore trailer park purchases for the traveler to be beware, and to have them slap the word of “resort” on to the title leaves one wondering to what standard is used to classify this place as a resort?
This RV Park has a lot going for it location, price, and access. The one problem and downside is the public street which runs through the center of park and used by the locals speeding through the campground 25-35mph. Even with the posted 15mph and the lack of speed bumps to slow the traffic down turned out to be a very sad combination for one camper and there pet dog wonder what wound have happen if it had been a child?
No cell coverage for AT&T however Verizon works, no WiFi coverage provided. Sites could use a lot of attention in the form of weed control on the gravel sites. There's a Train track that borders the rear property line but no night traffic to be concerned for. The road noise is bit much at heavy traffic times.
The RV resort is only 2 years old and it shows well. The rental rates are the highest encountered considering the sites do not have any build outs like concrete pads for parking or patio and no privacy between sites. But, sites are large enough to accommodate any of the big rigs. All that said, you’re here for the location, location. The rates I posted of $158pn are based on the winter/spring rates (December 1st to April 30) and a waterfront site. The pricing is understandable considering the current cost of waterfront land in the keys, and the campground provides a full size pool, boat ramp, docking, 3 docks and a paddles boards and kayaks for rent, full size club house. If you’re getting sticker shock consider non-waterfront sites starting at $100+pn. Basic cable and Wi-Fi is provided and performed adequately. Cell coverage in the keys is excellent.
This park is fairy new and one would think and expect a design and layout that would complement the current trends for RV travelers and their rigs. That expectation fell far short. Using the term resort in most cases is an assumption and may be miss leading but that’s a whole another discussion that needs to be addressed, but not today. Our disappointment is with the size and layout of the sites being extremely too narrow and close. Simply take a look at the campground web site and picture gallery, which I wished I had done in advance. Secondly, there should be a more tolerate understanding by management about the need to rinsing off the bugs before they hardened onto the front of the bus. As I was in the process of doing this when the management told me I could not, and to contact someone outside to come and wash the bus. I’m sorry management fails to appreciate the concern of its guest. Whether it’s a $10K trailer or $1m coach, I still need to protect that investment with clean up on the spot. Waiting for a slot 1-3 days out ($110 wash only) for someone to come wash the RV that meets with managements approval, is not in the travelers best interest.
A big rig does not mean 40ft but should be referred to as a 45ft RV. We tried to get inside the park and had to retreat for fear of risk VS reward. Campground rash was visible everywhere especially on the trees and buildings where RV’s had made contact trying to make the turns. We were forced to make two 3 points turns to make it around the park to get to the so called big rig sites. Once we arrived at the site assigned to us it was too narrow to open our slide outs. This is a very old mobile home travel trailer park thus the reason for it being so tight to get around. Would recommend 38ft or less RV for access however you’re still going to be faced with the problem of using your slide outs especially if your neighbors have their slides open.
Third visit to this resort for a good reason: reasonable rates, easy access, clean, well maintained, restaurant on site (the real thing, not a dive). No pet fees, not a trailer park, nice pool area, sites are wide enough for big rigs. The only drawback: the pull throughs are a little bit short, causing us to have to un-hook our tow car (45ft w/tow).
The previous reviewer almost sounds like an OWNER of a RV lot here. The reviews before that was right on, no one in attendance upon our arrival either. Average to below expectations was our impression of our stay for the price asked.
Great little RV park located on the gulf side with boat access and dockage. It's a nice clean and well maintained campground. All new RV Campground and it shows. Spent a week here and will return again.
For the price ($99 per night) there are better campgrounds in the Keys, in better shape and appearance. If rates were more like $59 per night the sites would still be pushing the norm for the Keys. Many of the sites have standing water in them from rain and/or storm tides and electrical outage and low voltage is common problem. The grounds show their age. Sadly this was our second and final stop here. Hope things change and soon for this RV park. Someone should delete the word resort from their name.
This is a OLDER campground and long term tenants. Most of the sites have signs "not potable water" majority of the sites were not level. We noted 13 sites that were Big Rig suitable for overnight camping; of those 5 did not have sewer. The train noise was very disturbing at all hours (6pm,7pm, 9pm,12pm, 4am, 6am). For the price and condition with all the distractions they should consider this a $20 nightly rate. Walmart is a better consideration.
Third time visiting. This is not a destination campground unless your into off road 4x4's and ATV's. The sites are a simple layout at best with little room on 11ft wide gravel sites. Make sure to use your jack pads and expect concerns if you get heavy rains and driving a big rig. Most GPS's send you to the wrong exit off I-75, take exit 144 and follow signs. The campground has potential but the prices are not supported, unless your bringing your 4x4 and want trail access from the campground, then its priceless.
After reading the previous review with all 10's we were less than pleased upon our arrival to this old and small cramped RV/Trailer Park. However with that all said the park is well maintained and clean for its age and size. We were assigned a super site $52 with a concert pad, however the pad was just big enough for the picnic table the remainder of the site was dirt and gravel for the rig to be parked on. It had rained the day before and all the sites were muddy leaving large ruts when we pulled in to our site along with several others that came in at the same time, however a simply fix is to walk your site in advance of accepting the assigned site simply because of the wet conditions.
Pricey for what's not offered, No Cable TV, No Local TV Coverage, no pool, sites are not level and all gravel, BIG RIG access is limited. This campground has potential because of its appearance and layout, but the usage of a "resort" projects higher expectations than what is currently offered.
Easy access for large rigs. Clean and well maintained. Sites are reasonable in size and width. 2/10 miles from I-75 yes there was some road noise but not too bad. The owners have a sign posted in the office IF temps are above 85 degrees expect $3.50 per day surcharge for electric, didn't get a chance to inquire but the sign speaks for its self. We will stay here again. Rates posted reflect Passport America discount.
Very nice location way off the beaten path (11 miles) and right on the Suwannee River. Easy access in our 45ft MH. Very quiet location with large floating docks and a boat ramp. Lots of shade trees which did not allow satellite access, but they have 19 channels on the cable TV hookup. Cell coverage was 0-1-bar for both AT&T and Verizon. The Wi-Fi worked more than adequately. I can only image that this campground is better suited for winter visitors (BUGS). The owner was polite but did not offer an escort to our site; not a big deal but it would have been helpful. The campground was clean and very orderly; each site was more than adequate and well maintained, with a gravel and sand drive and sand RV pads. We will return again.
Most of the park is just a paved parking lot. The site we reserved was beach front, but were assigned an interior site instead. VERY SMALL SITES and VERY CLOSE !! This place is way over priced, the electric and sewer hookups were backwards: unable to gain access to the sewer. Because of the small size we were unable to park our tow car at our site. This was our second and last visit. Disappointing experience.
Enroute to Red Bay, AL we found a GREAT spot most of the sites are PRIVATE with lots of shaded. Access was fairly good with exception of few low hanging limbs which were not a real problem for our 42ft bus. We were able to locate 4 sites where we were able get satellite reception otherwise local TV reception was fairly good and both cell phone & wireless internet cell coverage (National Access) was good using Verizon. The private setting and shade was a great spot and chance to wash the bus and tow car. The only draw back was no sewer dump at camp site and (50/amp) voltage was low during peak hours 4-7pm. but manageable.
No longer a KOA park, new owners. The entrance is not well marked and tight to get around in a big rig. The park needs some TLC but it appears the owners are working toward. There are a few spots with plenty of room for Big Rigs. WI-FI and Cable worked well at our site.
The park is well maintained but the sites are very small (narrow), cable TV was good if satellite doesn't connect, Cell phone coverage was good, however, in ROAMING mode on Verizon (USA). Air data card was all broadband coverage, No WiFi in park, additional $3 fee per pet. Easy access to mall and shopping, 2 blocks away. Recommend "Beach House at Dundarave Pier" for lunch ($18-25) or dinner ($22-35) great location & views along the waterfront just west of the park 3km.
Nice pull through and with wide slips and landscaping and easy access in and out. The pool and hot tub were very inviting and clean. The staff was helpful with maps and suggestions on things to see. It’s a 35 minute drive one-way to the caverns and about 45 minute drive to Sitting Bull Falls. We would stay here gain. Rate posted is net after 10% Good Sam discount.
Very nice place. Very easy to get in and around, most sites have some shade, and all have level concrete pads. Family friendly, well maintained, only downside was they charged for WIFI access @ $3.95 per day. When we were here the WIFI was down, seems like at these prices it should be included, as in comparison to other parks of like value and features. We would come back again, however just down the road 2 miles is another RV park worth looking into, “Admiralty RV Resort.” We drove thru and was equal in appearance to Blazing Star.
Very nice park directly on river for rafting and fishing, however the river levels were very high and dangerous for rafting up steam but down steam there was plenty of white water for all. The camp is broken up into two sections, RV and tents. The RV side was excellent, however the “White Trash Bash” (tent) was a sight to see mostly for the entertainment value for the adults. It was little difficult getting out of the RV park in a big rig with a dead end turn around instead of an easy exit loop, still a great place for the family and we will return again. PS… NO DOGS ALLOWED.
