Recently had a bad vacation experience. Reserved 12 days at Encore's Pioneer Village in Fort Myers in early Jan. for Feb.12-24. We also prepaid. This was all done by phone through Encore central reservations. We drove 1400 miles from Toronto. When we arrived we were told that they had overbooked and had no sites. They claimed that Encore just keeps taking reservations and has no idea when park is full. This is hard to believe. They also offered no compensation because as they put it "you do have your RV to sleep in." I'm sure that everyone knows how difficult it is to find a place in Florida in Feb. After calling over 20 parks we found a spot in Lakeland, but we spent 5 days of our vacation moving from day to day until we found it.
We have stayed in Encore parks before with no problems, but when you have a problem you really find out a lot about an organization. In this case Encore and Pioneer rate a big fat 0.

I would like to add that Encore parks are now the pits of the RV campground system. Lot of good places here in FL went over to Encore and now we see the down turn in service, billing problems, new people ever week, dumps over running, equipment broken down and not fixed, grass in need of work, roads with holes, trash around sites, and etc. Good place to stay away from.

I like to find out if anyone has made a reservation with this company and then had to cancel. They claim there credit is good at any park there company owns but they do not seam to have reservations available to use your credit when you want to, bunch of bull if you asked me!

Though I'm not a fan of Encore parks in general. Maybe the encore parks policy's give priority to reservations that are not the credit/cancellation type.... especially during the peak season.

Maybe you need to do some reading on these forums, just my 2 cents but your profile name suggests maybe you should look into another hobby.
