This is the third time that we have stayed here and probably the last. To start with we stayed in the preserve area, which boasts concrete pads and more grass area between sites. The concrete pads are true, very nice and level, and there is quite a bit of green between sites.The problem is that the ground is so wet and soft that you can't walk your dogs on it without getting black muddy feet. The grass behind the sites is a foot and a half high. When we checked in we were given no info, no site map, no nothing. Got to the site and got set up, turned the TV on that evening and we had terrible reception.Changed cables and got the same result. Got better reception when we connected to the neighboring site so we called the office to ask that someone come look at our box. The office was closed so we left a message. Got ready to take a shower and when I turned on the shower was assaulted by a terrible stench coming from the shower head (sulfur). We ended up using our onboard water tank to take showers. Went to the office the next day and talked to the lady at the desk , she said that we should run our water for a while and the smell should go away (which it finally did). When the maintenance man came to look at our cable box he hooked a meter up and said there was nothing wrong. I told him what we had done to get better reception, and he told me, "I don't know what to tell you" and drove off. Went to use the pool and hot tub and the hot tub was broken (again). We've been here three times, and all three time it has been broken. This time while I was on the phone making the reservation I asked if it was working and was told, "We are working on it but it will be up and running for the weekend". Bottom line - they have a maintenance man that is better suited to be a bouncer at a bar. Grounds and facilities aren't kept very well; staff not overly friendly.

My wife and I have been going to Williston crossings for several years and it's been our favorite campground in the area .That being said the reason that I gave it an 8 instead of a 10 is because we have noticed a disturbing trend. They have put several "mobile homes" in the 400 area of the park. there is also a number of long term sites with closed up camper/motorhomes parked and empty. But I believe that most troublesome change is that they are allowing people to put up sheds on the sites,some are homemade. This may not sound like much but our old favorite campground Elite Resort in Salt Springs started that way and the next thing you know there were all kinds of above ground decks,inflatable pools, etc. I hope that this is not the direction that they are headed because that would spell the end to a great campground.

Stayed in the Preserve section of the park . Paid extra for bigger site and the other amenities they advertised. Preserve pool is rather small ,there were no lounge chairs at the pool, hot tub was broken the whole time we were there. Ground around the pads were very wet and had a lot of fire ant hills. Front area pool was very nice and had a hot tub that worked! The best part of the entire resort is the little restaurant , great food and employees! When they get all of bugs worked out this section will rate much higher.

We found this wonderful park almost 3 years ago, shortly after they opened. It is just an hour from our home so it is convenient for weekend getaways, which we have done every 4-6 weeks since our first visit. The park has extra large concrete sites with large concrete pads and full hookups, pull-through & big-rig sites, 44 channel cable TV, Wi-Fi & DSL, clean restrooms and laundry area, paved roads, a beautiful community building and an open air pavilion with a large fire pit with rocking chairs to sit and visit with other guests. Each time we've visited we have been greeted by the owners, employees and other guests and made to feel like we belong. We've received tours of the park and their future plans and each time we come we are pleased to see what new additions and amenities have been added. The theme is an old fashioned small railroad town, and we can't wait to see the finished product. I'm not sure if the previous reviewer was at Williston Crossings or some other park, but we totally disagree with their low rating. While the pool, tennis courts, etc. are not yet completed, this is a beautiful park with lots of walking trails, paved roads for biking and a peaceful, relaxing, welcoming atmosphere. We've never paid more than $32 per night, even in the winter season. Thumbs up all the way!

This is a nice campground, but sites are very small. We stayed in a creek side site, and our picnic table was literally up against our neighbor's sewer hook-up. They also don't allow dogs to wade in the creek, which disappointed ours. The roads are gravel, and the campground is centrally located.

A nice park with large paved sites. The pool is rather small. It is easy to get in short notice even during holidays because they have so many sites. The location is somewhat remote with not many restaurants or activities in area. The campground is quiet and relaxing.
