This is a first class, luxury, adult oriented resort. If you have anything but a class A mororhome, pass this one by...the security guard will turn you around at the gate and you will not be allowed to stay. The par three golf course is beautiful, as is the rest of the landscaping. The laundry facility is a little slim for a park of this size...only three washers and three dryers for the entire park! The resort has back-in as well as pull-in sites. There are no pull throughs, and there is no room for trailers at your site. Every site has fifty amp electric, which is required by all class A motorhomes. Some site owners [it's a condominium park] have spent a lot of money upgrading their sites, but guests are not allowed to use the kitchens or fireplaces. The sites are concrete, level and easy to back into. You may see some coaches, mostly made by Prevost, which cost upwards of a million dollars! It is worth staying here just to look. Office staff are friendly and eager to help you with whatever you need. A first class park with a first class price!

Vastly overpriced for what you get. I made the mistake of walking through the 'seasonal' section, which was obviously being used as permanent housing. (Hay bales around trailers, 100lb propane tanks, winter insulated water lines etc.) There was mold on some of the trailers older than I am! All kinds of makeshift shelters and porchs. The park border is about 50' from the interstate and traffic noise is considerable, although we were in a motorhome, if in a travel trailer or tent it would have been a lot worse. The pool had not been cleaned and opened for the season, so can't comment on that. It didn't look very promising, though! To be fair, the people in the office were friendly and our site was ok, although no cable TV, which in this price range should have been standard. We stayed two nights and I would not have stayed three. There are too many other parks nearby to stay here again.

We have been camping at Chain-O-Lakes for the past twenty years or more, with units starting at a tent on up to our motorhome, which we now live in full time. The staff is excellent and will go out of their way to help if you have a problem. Most use of the park comes from families from the surrounding area. Honeysuckle Hollow is the older of the two RV campgrounds. The electric connections there can be a problem for newer, power hungry rigs. We have found that Fox Den is the best place to park with a motorhome. There aren't as many trees, which means that satellite reception is better. Fox Den is also home to the only two 50 amp sites in the park for public use. All of the restrooms are very clean and well kept. The park rangers are very serious about the no alcohol policy and the conservation police will write speeding tickets along the main roads. If you like to speed and drink, this isn't your park! All told, a very quiet and family orientated place. We continue to stop and stay there in the spring and fall.
