Easy access into the campground off the main road. We had a river view site and boy are they tight. Can't put the awning out without hitting the camper next to us. Utilities are at the very back of the sites which were fine and the cable and Wi-Fi worked very well. Lots of working families here with kids who are very friendly. Beautiful view of the water as the shore is maybe 75 feet from the rear of camper. Don't know if we'd return because of how tight the sites are.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects monthly stay of $475 plus $50 deposit for electric. This park is a 55+ age restricted park, but the folks here are a very nice and pleasant crowd. The sites are a mixture of permanent park models and pads for short/long timers. We stayed for 1 month, but most folks stay for 3 to 4 months in the winter time. Utilities are fine, but the water does have a faint smell to it, water and electric connections are in the back while the sewer is mid-ship. The pads are a good 20 feet wide and you park your camper in the grass, so you have the entire pad for you truck and chairs, but no picnic table or fire ring. My only complaint about the place is its right on Rt. 60 and the orange trucks run all day & night, if you are in the back, its not bad, but we were on the 2nd road in road the highway. Oh, and its 7 miles east of Bartow, Fl, but 1.5 hours from either coast. And watch out for the fire ants!!!! Wi-Fi is available through a 3rd party vendor for $35 a month. We didn’t try it. We will probably return since we made lots of friends here. Oh, and they don't seem to have a web site; at least I couldn't find one.

Being that a rating scale of 1 - 10, 5 being average, I give this CG a 6. Easy on/off of I-95, the sites are OK and the utilities were good. The power posts are very old, the 50 & 30 AMP connectors are well used and warn. Over the air TV channels were good also. Bath house #2, was very dated and needed a good coat of paint. Easy walk to all the activities of South of the Border. It is a gated CG, so you need a card to access the grounds. I would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend and every site in the entire park was reserved. Water pressure was amazing, although the water had a bad taste to it and was kind of cloudy looking. 50 AMP power was fine and the bath house, although dated, was always being cleaned. It rained a lot over the weekend and lots of sand was tracked into the bath houses. The pond was very low on water but was still able to go out in a boat. You have to check each site to see if you will fit, cause some of them have trees all over. No sewer sites at all, but 2 dump stations at the exit.

We were truly amazed at the size of these sites. They are huge, with a good 50 feet between campers. We were in site 171, which was almost at the end of the park (Host in 173). Thought there would have been road noise, but hardly none. We were there the week of Easter, park was full with everything from tents to motor homes. Lots of children in tents and pop ups too. 95% were very well behaved and didn't even know the were there. Good 30 amp only, water was fine, no sewer in our site. Host lent us his tote to dump our tanks (thanks again). The beach was beautiful and not very crowded considering the park was full. We will be back, but hopefully will get a full hookup site.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend, park supplied turkey, ham rolls and drinks for Thanksgiving dinner, there must have been 300 folks to feed, it was VERY GOOD! We had a pull through which was very tight. Our cable didn't work so they ended up giving us a splitter to tap into our neighbors. Sewer was uphill, so dumping was a challenge. Would stay here again, but in a back in instead of a pull through.

Date of Stay:

This park is on a hill, so its a downhill drive to the side roads where the sites are. There is a few pull through sites behind the office. All others are back in sites with gravel. There are a lot of trees, so maneuvering through the CG can be tricky. Lots of seasonal campers, some of which should be towed away because of their condition, utilities are all good, free Wi-Fi too. Its not a bad campground, it would be better of some trees were removed along the roadway where you turn in to the sites.

Date of Stay:

We stayed as C2C but lucked out and got sewer hookup because we met up with some friends that are owners. Our back-in site was across from the nice and clean bath house. Free WIFI at the store only, store and sitting areas were very nice. The roads had small potholes everywhere. We had lots of rain one night, but no flooding or problems because of the rain, didn't smell any sewer as stated below. 50 AMP Electric was good, received 12 over the air TV channels. Might return if we can have full hookups again.

Date of Stay:

The park is really nice, but the roads in the campground are dust and everyone speed through the campground. Dust flying everywhere, sites are dirt, which is OK, but the dust is BAD. Electric and sewer are fine, but the water smells, even with 2 charcoal filters on, it still stinks. We opted not to wash clothes cause of the smell. And gnats everywhere, between the dust, bugs, and smelly water, we are leaving after 3 days. Probably will no be back to this campground.

Date of Stay:

Very nice campground, nice pull through sites. Has 74 channels of cable TV, excellent water and electric. Spent 2 weeks, and will definitely be back.

Date of Stay:

Ditto everyone else says, WI-FI is from Tango and is pitifully slow, had to switch over to my smart phone. Speed bumps are a real pain, but the sites are long and mostly pull thru's. Some have concrete, but most are stone, fairly level. Good electric, water pressure is a little low, 15 over the air TV channels.

Date of Stay:

Price is Passport America rate. Office staff very friendly, quick at checking folks in. Campground is very small, maybe 1.5 acres, we had a Premium site, back-ins only, site was so tight, my awning hit the motor home next door. Picnic table has to be in the back of the site cause no room next to the camper. If we sat on the picnic table, we could wave to the cars going down the road, lots of road noise. Across the campground road to the front of our coach is another row of back-in sites then a railroad track, which is used every few hours. We will probably not be back.

Beautiful CG, everything was great. Cable would be nice since digital TV doesn't work, or at least free WiFi. Be sure to bring a good book, or some DVD's. And be sure to checkout the lodge.

Date of Stay:

Ditto on the below reviews, a nice little CG. The utilities were fine as well as free WiFi. Digital TV worked good too. Would return to this CG.

Date of Stay:

Typical KOA, lots of amenities, lots of washer/dryers too. Office help very friendly. Small sites, but acceptable. Utilities were fine as well as free WiFi. Would stay here again.
