We like this park so much that after a month here we decided to trade the motorhome for a fifth wheel and stay with them long-term: live at the park for 4 months and store it on-site for 8; all at a very reasonable price (Monthly rate Jan thru Mar). Treasure Coast RV Resort has it all. Newly designed for today’s RVs’ needs: great 50 amp, water, sewer and cable hook ups in modern, lighted pedestals at large, level concrete pads with picnic tables, a nice heated pool, recently replaced laundry machines, immaculate bath house and weekly organized events. Landscaping is beautiful and well-tended with palm trees throughout, but not enough to interfere with your satellite receiver (which really isn’t needed because of the excellent cable service.) The WiFi, as with all parks, is weak and slow in places, so we invested in a mobile hot spot and never looked back. Alternatively, there’s good WiFi access for your laptop at the office or you can use the computer set up there for guests. Although convenient to the Turnpike and I-95, traffic noise is not an issue, and the park actually borders on farm land to the north. The staff folks are the best ever: super friendly, competent and very willing to help. Great mail system, free coffee available all day and lots of local information organized in binders at the office. Fort Pierce’s historic district is quaint with a big craft & farmers’ market on Saturdays, an active live theater and many events throughout the month. The shopping, beaches and entertainment venues of Vero Beach, Port St Lucie and Stuart are all within a half hour; West Palm Beach is an hour south, while Daytona and Orlando are two hours away. I’ve written 108 other reviews over the years, and this is my last: we’ve found our destination. Thanks to the site facilitator and to everyone on-line for their very helpful reviews; happy travels to all.

Agree with all previous highly rated reviews: this is a wondrous park, with more high-end setups than I’ve ever seen in one place. All services and amenities are top-notch, functional and immaculate with one exception: the Tengo internet is, as always, abysmal. Not the park’s fault: they restrict users to two devices each and they’ve installed several access points - I received eight - each reported fair to good signal strength with an initial speed of 24Mbs until connected, then down to 1Mbs. Tengo simply isn’t up to today’s bandwidth challenge. Fortunately it costs nothing and as usual one gets what one pays for. I highly recommend you avoid the aggravation by buying your own WIFI hotspot: money well invested. Super friendly and helpful staff, very effective bi-weekly insect control and a great library and heated pool. Daily pool exercises, pickle ball every second day, weekly Harley rides and one special event (New Year’s Eve Party) organized for December, with most other activities resuming in January. For a park of this quality, we would have expected and appreciated gym facilities. The park was about 40 percent full in early Dec, 80 percent in late Dec and the office says it’ll be totally full in the New Year, so early reservations are recommended. With what the park and the area have to offer, we’ll be back.

Just an update for 2012. Park remains a beautiful, well-run, full-feature facility. Lots of activities, an easy bike ride to the St Jacobs market. Excellent Wi-Fi on our site close to the rec hall and it looks like phone service is available there as well. Good TV reception on several channels. Pool was most welcome in 33 degree weather. Will definitely stay here again when visiting the quaint St Jacobs/Elora/Elmira/Fergus quadrangle.

An update for 2012: nice park, primarily a seasonal situation, an easy bike ride to Leamington and Pelee Is ferry. Friendly staff and residents. Sewer pipe was broken but useable at our site. Two unheated pools weren't open in mid-June, nor was the rec hall. The heated indoor pool is a 3-ft deep kiddie thing within the closed rec hall. Couldn't find showers or a bathroom unlocked during our stay. All this should be corrected in July. If you park near the rec hall the Wi-Fi is free but very weak and slow. A stronger Wi-Fi is available at a price, but we didn't try it.

A great park which would've rated a '10' if they had a pool. Super location, CATV, WIFI, and check-in people. Beyond doubt the very best community-run facility we've ever encountered. Given the beauty of the finger lakes region, our enthusiasm for NY wine and the quality of this park, we'll be back.

Agree with the previous positive comments and would add the following: there appears to be only about 10 overnight full-hookup sites; the others are 2-way or tent sites. The washrooms/showers/laundry facilities are MAGNIFICENT! New, quality materials (tile floors & walls), professionally installed and scrupulously clean. Brand new and reasonably priced washers and dryers. Showers are coin-activated, but they don’t say how much time you get per loonie. The only reasons I can’t rate it a 10 are: no CATV and maddeningly weak and slow WI-FI - ‘very weak’ reception and 1 Mbs despite being right under the access point - for $ 3 per day (calendar day, not 24 hours.) Unfortunately the on-line reservation page hasn’t worked for months, despite an advertised fix date of end-May. The pool was medium-size, immaculate and solar-panel heated to 80 degrees with nice shade canopy options. The staff are super friendly and very hard working folks. I wish they would expand their facilities so that more weekend sites could be available. We’ll return for a few days whenever there’s a vacancy.

Number of sites includes two cottages that we saw; rate was for full hookup; Good Sam discount available. Several tent sites available and three park models are currently for sale. Beautifully maintained family-owned park with level, gravel sites on the north shore of Wellers Bay. Lots of water activities including boat launching, fishing, canoe and paddle boat rentals. A short paddle to an amazing sand beach. Nice clubhouse with a pot luck and a wine and cheese available when we were there. Electricity averaged 110 volts but went as low as 108 and as high as 120. WI-FI averaged 1.0 Mbs. The pool is heated by solar panels, so should be great in the summer. Although fire wood is available, there's no store, so arrive supplied. Super friendly owners and guests. This place is very popular and was filled on the May long weekend: reserve well in advance during the summer months. Highly recommended; we'll be back if there's a vacancy.

Overwhelmingly a seasonal park, which seems to be given over to people who use it as a cottage area. Nevertheless, the owners were kind enough to rent us a seasonal site for a long weekend at short notice once they learned we didn't have kids with us. Couldn't quite understand that, inasmuch as the folks across the road had three teenagers, but never mind, they were very well behaved. Very nicely kept seasonal sites. Arrive with videos, as the on-air TV is dreadful (unless you like hunting, fishing and cartoon programs) and there is no WiFi. Pool looked good, as did the restrooms, but didn't try any of them. All told, it would have rated a higher assessment if they had invested in CATV and WiFi, or at least a high-speed terminal in the office.

Agree with the previous positive comments. I would have given it a 10 if there'd been CATV and a pool. WiFi generally good, but maddeningly slow at times. The owner was a super lady; because the overnighters don't get a sewer hookup, she cheerfully carted down a honey wagon. Lots of stuff to do here (but bring videos as the TV reception is very limited) and in the beautiful Rideau valley. Really nice to wake up right next to the lake, listening to the waves. We'll be back for a week next time, and we highly recommend this park to all.

Primarily a seasonal situation, with most guests living in Cobourg and using it as a cottage. In mid-week July there were only 3 sites available and they gave us a 'larger one.' Packed in like sardines with barely enough room to deploy the awnings; however, most sites were well maintained with very little junk. Beautiful beach! Do NOT come here for peace and quiet: there's a loud diesel unit that combs the beach from 6:00 until 7:00 am, some construction vehicles with loud backup beepers from 7:00 until noon and lawn cutting for a few hours each day. Nightly trains close by, but at least they don't use their horns. The rate shown (plus tax) was for a 3-way hookup, no cable and add an extra $10 a day for WIFI (in this day and age when it's free in most CGs, coffee houses and airports.) Didn't try it, can't comment on quality. All that said, it's within walking distance to a pretty village with lots of nifty shops. A good destination for a few nights.

Rate was for a full hook-up, non waterfront. This park seems to be primarily a seasonal situation, and I’m not sure why: there’s lots to see and do in the area for a weekend. The residents and particularly the owners are very friendly. A really upscale playground for the kids and a sandy beach on a shallow (therefore, warm) small lake. We thought the park rather spartan at first, but upon walking around, found a nice variety of sites, including a fully serviced group area. Arrive prepared with food and videos: although they advertise a variety store within walking distance, we didn’t notice it. Of the four TV channels received on the amplified antenna, one dealt with fishing for three hours and the other three were cartoons each morning. The Wi-Fi, although competent, required a hike up a 45 degree hill to the office to receive it. Never mind, we don’t have a dog so we walk the laptop. They plan to upgrade the coverage with a pay-as-you- go system in future. The men’s room was clean (albeit older) and freshened with disinfectant, but the ladies’ didn’t rate quite so highly. Altogether a nice place to stay while exploring the shops and galleries of Bancroft.

A nice enough park, but $ 48 for an off-level site with no CATV, the pool closed for renovations and an extra $10.50 per day for WiFi? In this day and age when WiFi is provided free in most campgrounds, airports and coffee houses? Nice folks who charge about twice what it's worth.

Just an update for 2010. Agree with all previous observations and would add only that the side by side hook-ups in area N required extra time, effort and extensions. Our gravel site was quite level. Sewer hook-up wouldn’t accept my standard donut, but worked well without it. Super WiFi, and no requirement for CATV: the boosted antenna received 30 stations, mostly digital. Nothing much going on during the off-season; maybe there's more when the permanents return. Would revisit if in the area again.

Just an update for 2010. Don’t come here looking for excitement; the setting is pastoral. As it should be, really, you’re in the middle of a pasture! Our site was treed, grassy and totally level; however, others seemed to be pretty slanted. Never mind, they don’t assign a site, so you can park wherever you feel it’s suitable. Didn’t use the restrooms/showers, so can’t judge them. The RV sales and service is manned by a couple of good ole boys who really make you feel welcome. Be aware that there are no sewer hook-ups in the transient area, but two or three unoccupied sewer sites near the office, so you can dump there on departure. Side by side hook-ups required an extension to our hose. We didn’t notice the lack of CATV because the boosted antenna pulled in about 20 digital stations. The owners bemoaned WiFi problems, but we found fast, free service, which I used quite a bit. Their dealership is great: lots of stuff in the store/parts dep’t and quite a few rigs for sale and available for inspection. Altogether a super place to take a day off, and highly recommended to all.

Wow! In nine years of travelling I've never given a 10 to a KOA. Price includes tax and KOA discount. All previous positive remarks remain valid: excellent park and facilities, very nicely maintained, great, hard-working staff and totally modern and immaculate rest rooms, laundry and showers. A slightly off-level site was easily compensated for. A fifteen-minute drive to Kentucky's artisan centre at Berea. We'll be back.
