This is a nice location. The park is on the St. Johns River. It has boats to rent , a launch ramp, and a pretty decent restaurant on the premises. The pool is the largest I've ever seen. It is fully enclosed and nicely maintained. It is an old park, pretty well maintained. It is popular with "snowbirds who return year after year. Most everyone knows everyone else, and they are a friendly bunch. The sites are very tight. They have used every available inch of space, and sites a very close together. There are "super" sites which is what I took on this visit. About the only thing "super" is the price - $650.00 per month. A three month stay gets you a $100.00 discount. The "super" sites are wedged in all over the park. They take a $200.00 "deposit" for electricity which is absurd! This is a gimmick to hold your money for a month or longer and collect the interest. The staff are helpful and friendly. If I do stay here again, I won't take a "super" site. Not worth it!

This park almost defies description. It looks like 2 different parks (maybe even 3!). I called for a reservation but when I arrived there was no one in the office which is buried in the back of part of the park. When we found it there was a note on the desk with a number to call. When I called the owner right out of central casting- told me he had the flu and to take any site I wanted but not 98. There were 2 sites available and 98 was one of them. I took it!It was a beautiful site on the end of the row. The day before we left owner came to our site and asked us if we were leaving! I told him I had made the reservation and paid for a week. It seems that a camper had arrived and apparently had been given a reservation for my site also. All through the time we were there we saw several campers come in all looking for their "reserved site" with none available. Over the course of the week we spent there this occurred 2 or 3 times every day. Owner conducted a tour of the Poche mansion which was entertaining although not enlightening. It is obvious that they are working on the park but it is not nearly ready for "resort" status. The pool was nice but hadn't been cleaned for quite awhile and therefore unusable. The laundry had 4 machines - 2 each washer & dryer. I really wanted to give the park a good review but the reservation situation or lack thereof makes it impossible.

This is a nice park. There is a new owner who is an RV'er himself so he is pretty well attuned to the campers' needs. He is planning to expand and improve the park. I camped on a crescent which was more than ample for my 39' unit with a 5' MC lift on the back. There are several such sites in the park. I called in advance of my visit to make a reservation. The owner explained the different rates. When I arrived at about 2PM there was no one in the office. I called and was told to pick out a site. Apparently the one I chose without knowing was the most expensive! I stayed here a week with no discount for a week's stay! I would stay here again.

A very nice, small park which I prefer for long stays. It is an older park but pretty well maintained. I stayed in Americana for three months. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They had several water problems so be sure to fill your fresh water tank. The Wi-Fi was flaky. I was close to the clubhouse (71) where the router is located so I had pretty slow reception most of the time. People any further away had to go to the clubhouse. The site was preferred; it had a nice concrete patio and was quite large but had only 30 Amp service. Cheaper sites behind me were all gravel but had 50 Amps!? The salt water pool is small but very nice and never crowded. The hot tub was the favored spot. There were lots of activities and the area has no limit of attractions. I would stay here again.

This is a very nice park as far as the amenities are concerned except for the fact that many sites in the Hammocks are dirt and you must "sign up" for a table! On 2 different occasions we did not get one! This doesn't speak well of a park that charges in excess of $700.00. This year (2011) I was forced to cancel my registration. I had placed a $250.00 deposit on a site in September of 2010. When I called to cancel the girl in the office told me it would be 90 days before I would receive my refund. When I objected she said it was due to "paperwork"! I don't think so - I think it is to collect the "float i.e. the interest on $250.00 for 3 months. This after they have had the money for 5 months. This is PETTY larceny! And, not becoming a park that wishes "resort" status.

I stayed in Admiralty for a month in January. The park is centrally located and well maintained. They claim "free Wi-Fi" but neither I nor any of my neighbors could maintain a good connection. We all complained and got a variety of excuses but no results! Sites were somewhat narrow for "big rigs". The park is 30 years old. The staff were all work campers and they were very courteous but they were not allowed to help out with any matter. One guy came back to help me after his shift was up. He said they were not even supposed to talk to campers! Probably wouldn't stay here again.

This is a great little (19 sites) park. It probably could be a little bigger but the owners prefer to preserve a very natural ambiance. The park is meticulously maintained and very private. The owners are extremely pleasant and helpful. I am full time and have been traveling as such for 5 years. This is one of the nicest parks I've stayed in.

We stayed here for three weeks in a 38' motor home. Sites are pretty level and spacious. Picnic tables are on a cement pedestal and covered but placed in an unusual and awkward place. Weekly rate was $150.00 for full hookups which includes cable and 50A. The campground is near a light rail (Rail Runner) station. This is very convenient and reasonable for visiting Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Proximity to rail also brings noise! Overall this is a very nice park and we will use it again.

We camped here in a 38' motor home. Hickories is a town of Owego park. The staff are great; very pleasant and helpful. There are no sewers but there is a pump out service. The bathrooms & showers are clean. As noted there are no reservations and there is a 30 day limit on your stay. Sites vary but most will handle big rigs. Many are shaded. There is an outdoor amphitheater for music events and there is almost always something going on in the park. All in all this is a great value!

A very nice park. Staff were friendly and helpful. They are professionals. The sites are gravel and tough to level up on because it appears that the CG is on the side of a hill down to the lake. We were on #77 and I had to block under the front wheels because the jacks had them off the ground. Sites are also pretty narrow. Can't swim in the lake - bummer!
Date of Stay: April, 2009
This was our second stay. The park is very convenient to the casino with an on demand shuttle. All sites are pull throughs. Many sites are pitched badly lengthwise and from side to side making leveling very difficult if not impossible. We couldn't level and we watched 3 or 4 people give up and move off the site they had been assigned. It has a nice little pool. The laundry is small but nice.

This was our second visit. We had a weekly rate (Good Sam) which was 6 nights with 1 night free! It's a very nice park with a great view of the Mississippi from the front row. I was annoyed by the fact that I requested a front row (river view)site but was told they were all booked. During our stay sites were continually opening and transients in and out. I booked a month in advance for two weeks. Not again! Gravel roads were very dusty. Police patrolled frequently which is at first comforting then begins to be worrisome. WiFi was spotty to non existent. The pool is very nice.

Great access to the city. The shuttle was invaluable for the casino and French Quarter. WiFi was spotty to non- existent. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Gravel roads dusty (when dry!)and tough to ride a bicycle on. Park was under water with Katrina but the owners have done a good job bringing it back.
