November, 2008 -
Advertisement states that Grand Lakes RV & Golf Resort is a Gated Resort. Only problem is that the gates do not work nor can they be closed due to County property just beyond the gates. Free WiFi is a joke. Only the first 30 minutes are free after which there is a charge by the minute. Then you have to ride around until you can find a WiFi tower that does work. Pool is there but out of service due to pool water heater down and Parent company will not provide funds for repair. Golf Course in fair condition due to manager being forced to lay off all but 3 workers and again there are no funds available to repair a flat tire on one of the green mowers. Free Cable is another joke as there are only 12 channels available and even then their reception is poor.Showers are available but can be closed at anytime should they need repairs again due to lack of funds for parts. Roving security is provided but they have to enclose their carts with cardboard boxes and shower curtains to keep the rain or cold out. Again for lack of funds. On site store has minimal items in stock. Again due to lack of funds. District or Regional managers seem to be withholding funds in order to get their big end of the year bonuses at the expense of making Grand Lake a 5 star resort again. Good Sam already dropped them from their list and some people who have already paid in advance are pulling out and do not care about not getting their money back or are looking for other places ASAP. On the bright side, what is left of the staff, and the manager are great and are trying to do what they can with less or no operational funds! We camped at Grand Lake RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
