Bluewater RV Resort is an excellent RV park. It is the nicest we have encountered in our coast to coast travels. The manager and her staff are very friendly and helpful. They provide everything from assisting in set up to recommending excellent restaurants. Our site was very private and had great accommodations. The Tiki Hut had a bar, TV, refrigerator, freezer and very comfortable furniture. It also had a dock and private DSL wireless hookup. We love the place and will return. Have already made reservations. We stayed six nights at an average rate of $125/night including tax. A tad expensive, but worth it. Not all of the sites appear to be as well set up as ours, but they are all nice.

Grand Lake is a nice enough place, but there is no lake here: more like a swamp. Several air boats around and that tells what the locals think of the so-called lake. This place is also in the middle of nowhere. About 20 miles to the nearest respectable supermarket and Starbucks. The location was remote enough that our AT&T air card could not pick up a signal. The park provides Wi-Fi for a rather high price and that was totally unreliable. Sometimes it worked, but most often it was impossible to connect. The parks shows its address as Citra, Florida, not Orange Lake. We stayed here 5 nights waiting for the weather to clear in the northern Gulf area. We doubt if we will return. Rate reflects CampClub USA discount.

We stayed here five nights to visit friends in Tampa and to have a soup to nuts inspection and service performed on our motorhome. (By the way, we were very pleased with the service. It was prompt and very well done. The service adviser was excellent.) Park utilities, including Wi-Fi, were good. There isn't much privacy between sites, but the park was not nearly full and privacy was not an issue. The park provides free breakfast and lunch six days a week. The food is free and well, you get what you pay for. We have stayed here before several times and will return for service and for the location.

Delightful staff. Close to Marco Island and Naples. We were the only renter there during this off season. Since it is the off season, there was no security guard, but the gate is keypad operated. We didn't have any problem with the lack of a guard. Back in sites are plenty large for big rigs. Everything is nicely landscaped. Major drawback is lack of Wi-Fi except in the clubhouse. And, it's pretty expensive given the off season. We were there three nights and will return.

We stayed here five nights and were the only rig in the new part of the resort. At $70/night during the off season, that should not be a surprise. This is very nice park. Major drawback is the lack of Wi-Fi. Apparently, lot owners subscribe to internet service via their cable connection. It does not appear that there are any plans to establish Wi-Fi. The resort is gated, but there is no guard on duty during the off-season. Entry is by key card and we didn't have any problems. We have stayed here before several times and will stay here again.

It is pretty much a typical KOA. The sites are close together, with narrow roads and decent utilities. The WiFi unreliable - sometimes very good and other times not accessible. The staff was friendly. However, park was mostly empty and staff parked a travel trailer right beside us when four of five site separation would have been just as easy. There are no pull through sites. It is a Handy location for Daytona attractions. The sites are grass with concrete patios. We stayed here two nights. The rate reflects discount and tax.

This a very nice and convenient RV park. But it has drawbacks. The entrance and interior roads are tight. Low hanging tree branches make for difficult passage for big rigs. The trees also prevent use of satellite TV. The WiFi was not available at our site. And our AT&T wireless connection was very weak and slow. That's not the park's fault. The staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed five nights and would return because of the park's location.

If you must make an overnight stop in this area, this park is relatively quiet and inexpensive. Easy in and out with a great lake view! The utilities, including Wi-Fi, were good. Looks a little run down and lacks security, but we didn't have any problems.

Date of Stay:

Good place for an overnight stop. Narrow roads and fairly steep hills into the park. Suggest you look elsewhere if not confident in your ability to drive a big rig under those circumstances. That said, there were numerous big rigs here. Utilities seem OK. There is a charge for Wi-Fi. Rate reflects discount and tax.

If you love Elvis, you will love this park. Walking distance to Graceland. Good space for big rigs. Utilities, including Wi-Fi, all fine. Staff friendly. Park seems well managed. Good security. We stayed here five nights. Would return, but we have had our fill of Elvis. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and tax.

I tried really hard to find something to criticize about this park. But I must concur with the previous three posts. Pull thrus are long - the longest I've come across. The sites are level and all utilities are as they should be. The place is extra good if you have kids. Be careful on entry. Some GPS units and the signs may take you to the main entrance of the amusement park. Ours did. Park security led us out, but the departure involved moving barriers and inconvenienced a lot of people. Otherwise no problems. We stayed here two nights and would return.

There is no reason to stay here unless you want to be close to downtown St, Louis. The sites are very tight for big rigs and sloped. Better have good levelers. Waste hookups are uphill from the rig. The owners are delightful and very helpful. Neighborhood is not the best, but there were not any problems.

A delightful RV park. Its near major highways, hilly, tight and has only one paved road. The rest of the roads are gravel as are the sites. The ambiance is excellent and we enjoyed our overnight stay. There are many shade trees, but our site was clear so we had no satellite reception problems. One feature is the Friday evening bison burger cookout. Excellent! We would have stayed longer if space was available. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and tax.

This would be a fairly nice overnight campground were it not for the presence of quite a few fifth wheelers operated by workers who think it is great fun to run their pick-ups so as to raise great clouds of dust. This is not our kind of RV park. We were here one night and glad to leave. We will not return. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount and tax. We camped here in a Motorcoach.

This is a gravel and dust RV parking lot. Plenty of room for big rigs. Utilities, including Wi-Fi, were good. Staff was friendly. Highway noise not a problem for us. This is just an overnight stop off point. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and tax.
