Date of Stay: July, 2013
We arrived just as they were gearing up for Independence Day. The park was crowded with families enjoying the weekend. There were many full timers there with decks and other additions to their permanent sites. We were there only for a place to park during a family get together to celebrate my parent's 90 and 91st birthdays at their home and had to pay a premium price for the holiday. We were first shown a nice pull through but, on the way back to the office, we noticed an open spot right next to the lake which they hesitated to give us due to our size (45 foot). The office staff were very friendly and did everything they could to accommodate us. The spot was on the small side for our bus and not very level. We ended up listing slightly to starboard but it was our choice given the spectacular view of the lake. Reading some of the other reviews have me wondering if they were talking about the same park we visited. Evidently, things have changed drastically since others have written reviews. Looking around, all the electrical stanchions were new with 50 amp service, the water pressure was great and we remarked on how well kept the grounds were. Yes, there may have been some noise but, you must understand, our stay was during one of the major holiday weekends. People were outside, enjoying each other's company, Lots of kids, dogs and family activities. I grew up in the area and we visited Clay's park when I was a kid. It was not much more than a swimming hole back then. Today, it is one of the nicest RV parks we've ever visited. Sure, there is always room for improvement (easier access to the dumping station) but it seems that the management is working hard to make everyone's stay pleasant. Clay's Park will always be our favored place to stay when visiting family. We're going back in a couple of weeks and we'll take the time to enjoy some of their many activities.

We stopped here overnight on a trip north to Ohio. The owner checked us in and a staff member escorted us to our site. The site sloped upward slightly but well within range of our leveling system. It was the end of the Memorial day weekend so the park was sparsely populated. There is a lovely lake and the overall appearance is that of a well kept park. The park used to be a KOA but is now a Good Sam franchise. The KOA "feel" is still present in the layout, amenities and service but at a lower price. We will certainly stop here again.

This park has signs of "deferred maintenance" however there were repairmen present during our stay. None of the problems with late night partying that we noticed. It is true that the manager travels back and forth between here and Daytona. He and his wife have the reputation of fixing "problem" parks and considering the progress they have made at the Encore Ormond Beach facility, we feel that they will do a good job here. They do go out of their way to make people feel welcome. We will most likely camp here again.

A very pleasant place to stay with nice facilities. Our site was spacious and level. One of the best features of this park is the city bus stop right out front which takes you into beautiful San Antonio. That saves a lot of hassle parking your car in town.

We were only going to stay a couple of days but we ended up staying for a whole week at this great park. As others have said, the park is divided into two circular areas divided by a bridge over a creek. The permanent sites are in one of the circles. Some of the park models were showing their age but the transient side was very nice. We stayed in one of their "premium" sites, normally a lot more money but only $25 for the summer slow season. There are some tent sites next to a small lake. The Manager, Frank and his wife, Pam, are genuinely nice people who were always present whether at the desk, cooking hot dogs and hamburgers (free!!) They have live music from time to time. There is some work to be done to the infrastructure but we could see that they were always working on improving something. The park is located right off I-95 next to a huge Harley Davidson dealership and motorcycle related commercial area so bike week would be very loud to say the least (but interesting). There are many restaurants nearby and a really nice non-denominational church right next door.
