The Boardwalk RV Resort, Homestead, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great location for its access to the keys, the everglades, various state parks and other Florida attractions. Many of the sites are quite spacious but there are some that are quite short and a few that are narrow so be sure to check out the sites first if you can. We stayed for a month and learned that there is a recurring theft problem in the park. We did have some stuff stolen. The gate has apparently been on the list to repair since the fall... still not fixed and they need to address the security. There are a lot of feral cats which we found charming but hopefully the SPCA does regular health checks as some looked to be diseased or carrying some kind of parasite like fleas or mange. We felt it was a clean park with regular maintenance except their picnic tables. Some are in real disrepair and not safe. We really enjoyed the casual vibe in the park and some of the mature trees & shrubs. The pool is small but adequate and kept at a nice warm temperature. It could be a really fun park if they made some minor changes.The biggest problem (besides the gate/security) they need to address is creating ENGLISH postings, calendars, notices, events. Heck, even just an overal English speaking culture. It is very strange to be in the USA and have notices in FRENCH only... not even in Spanish which there is also a large representation in the permanent resident section. It also created a clicky French segregation in the park where you felt like an outsider. We will not be back and met others in the park that felt the same. Wanted to talk to management but felt like they know the problems already. They have some French 'volunteers'. Just hold some English/Spanish classes... or use google translate when you post a notice...lol. Include the whole park, not just the French population. Check out the sites if you can. Many are really spacious and beautiful and a few are just terrible. If you don't speak French ask to be in a section where there are more Americans and English speaking Canadians. Its lonely in the 'French Quarter' if you aren't a quebecquois We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Pickens Campground, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful campground!! Can't believe they had availability. The beaches, the views... breathtaking. Love the whole campground. You are in nature. There is a dump station right in the park so very convenient to dump before you leave, but not a hookup at your site. We camped at Fort Pickens Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There is an offleash dog beach just outside of the park which was great since you couldn't take your dog on any of the beaches in the park. Loved the Fort... amazing
