We had stayed in this park before for the big Oyster Fest in the town of Urbanna so we knew it would be crowded for that. Well, this time it's a normal weekend in August and it's not any less crowded or chaotic. As someone said there are kids everywhere, riding bikes on the narrow main road, not looking, riding through your site when you're sitting right there, etc. Golf carts everywhere also. We have one that rides in the back of our truck and we were going to get it out to use but they charge $15 a day to have your own. Also, they wanted proof of $100,000 in liability insurance. Ours is on our homeowners policy and we didn't have proof of that and they wouldn't let us use the cart unless we could provide it. Then we had two guests come to visit us in their car and they were charged them $12 EACH just to come to our site and visit for an hour!!!!! This park is out to get ever cent from you they can, but they don't give back. They have great amenities for kids, a pool with lots of large play structures, but I wouldn't want to go there and compete with all those kids. Then there is a lake with a sandy beach but again filled with kids, rude ones. At night it's very noisy, even after quiet hours and tons of campfires and smoke. Unless you pay for a premium site ($90 night) which are very narrow, very close together but do have concrete pads you're on grass, every site. They rent golf carts and have a fleet of them for $45 a day! There is cable and wi-fi included in your site rental but the rest is a big money maker, not worth the stop. There are permanent park models here as well as rental models and permanent sites all are on top of one another. There is just a feel of being crowded and closed in throughout the whole park. They've been voted twice as National RV Park of the Year, but I don't know what those standards are, certainly not the BEST RV park! This place is truly a rip-off, they nickel and dime you for everything.

This truly is a hidden gem. The park is easy to navigate, has grassy/sandy sites. There is a beautiful pool, great river access with a dock for fishing and fish cleaning table. We arrive on Sat. office was closed there was a list of sites to choose from, all pull thru. We checked in Mon. when office opened again, staff in office was great, really work with you. It was off season so not many park model owners around, but the ones who were there were super friendly. We were in the area house hunting and it was close to the areas where we were looking, close to Sun City Ctr. shopping as well as Ruskin and easy access to I-75. Big rig friendly. We got a weekly rate of $122 with one of our memberships, but can't remember which one. It's a 55+ park also so no kids or noise.

This is a great place with cement pads, lots of room for big rigs, your tow vehicle and golf cart. It's a wide open park, well maintained with some permanent people and some park models, all very well maintained. Cable and Wi-fi were free and worked very well. There is a security gate with key pad code but the area itself was very secure. Our satellite worked great, no obstructions.

This is a great park, easy off the road access, great directions and signs. There are wide open spaces, great for satellite use. There is also a marina on the river where boats can park, stay and use the bath facilities. They have a restaurant where you can order food and pick it up or have it delivered to your campsite and there's a gas station right there also. The office is open 24 hours a day which is great for arriving late.

This is one of our favorite parks and it was our 4th stay there. We were visiting Boise, and even though it's not the closest park to the city, we chose to stay there because we love it. This trip we had grand kids with us who used the restrooms/showers and they reported how very clean they were kept. The pool is great with a small kiddie pool and spa. Other reviews are correct, the park is very level with wide streets and we even met a man teaching his wife to drive their motor home because it's such a great place to learn. The sites are great. A large river rock pad for the RV with cement patio and a lightweight round umbrella picnic tables at each site with a grassy strip beside the cement. The sites are very long and easily accommodate long motor homes towing vehicles. The doggie park is great, nice grass and there is also a walkway around the perimeter of the park which is great for walking your pets. There are some permanent sites in the park, but all are well maintained and there is great security and great staff.

This is a country club type resort with pads that are privately owned and some still for sale. The pads are huge and all are done in a different surface of paver type. The ones that are owned have elaborate thatch huts and casitas on them and some are as big as 3,000 sq. ft. There are two pools, lap and infinity, a workout room, tennis court, etc. Golf carts are allowed. In May things are pretty deserted but it was a great place to stay in the Ft. Lauderdale area. There is a security gate and we felt very safe unlike other places we've stayed in that area. They only allow Class A motorhomes.

This is a very family oriented park. We come here with our son and his family of 5 kids. There is something for all of them to keep busy, lake swimming and fishing on one of two docks and playing in the sand for the little ones as well as lake wading. We sail our small boat and there is a dock to tie it up that's provided free. We always get lakefront and side by side sites so we can be door to door with them. There are some weekends when the crowd can be rowdy, but that's the case in many places. The folks that run the resort are very friendly and willing to accommodate you anyway they can. There is a well stocked store/gas station at the entrance. The playground has been updated from the rusty swing set mentioned in the '07 review and now they have true playground equipment as well as volleyball and tether ball. The sites are tight, especially lakefront but we have 3 slides and are 42' long and it always works for us. There is also lots of grassy area in front of the lakefront sites for chairs, picnic tables, etc. We think it's a great place.

This is probably a great campground if you're here with a young family. We asked for a level site as the last time we were here we were up on the hill in site #25. We have a 42 foot motorhome and tow a car, it was impossible to get through the narrow dirt, hilly road and into our site. This time we got one of their "Super Full Hook Up Sites" #46 which did get us on the level but we paid a price. All the site gets you is a gas grill on site and a fire ring, neither of which we used. We were beside the staff trailer and they were so close our side awning touched their permanent porch roof. The picnic table is a plastic round one with attached benches and was filthy when we arrived with peanut butter and jelly from the last campers. There is an umbrella on the table so you can't put a cloth down which I like to do. This site was way overpriced for what it got us and the staff beside us were noisy at night until 11pm. There is a whole other section to the park called The Meadow that isn't shown on their map. They have a large grassy field but I don't think there are hook-ups at all up there, maybe water. This park has tons of KOA's little cabins and I'm sure it's the money they get from the Super Full Hookup sites that pays for these. There were also lots of loud motorcycles in the park and because we were on the main road all of them and the delivery trucks and everyone who was checking in drove right by our RV and sometimes the traffic would back up right in front of our RV. All in all this was not a good experience and despite the rave reviews on this park I would have to disagree and will not go, we feel it is way overpriced even for the regular RV sites.

We spent the long Memorial Day weekend here and it is a beautiful park in a beautiful area of the State. It is very well maintained with a large cement pad for the RV as well as for your tow vehicle and an area for picnic table, chairs, etc. There is also a grass area adjacent to the cement area for each RV. There are playgrounds, a beautiful pool area with hot tub, club house and picnic gazebos and a sand volleyball court. The park is brand new and there are some permanent or seasonal sites but all are very well maintained. There is lots of shopping in the area, restaurants and grocery stores. The staff were all very friendly and there is a well stocked mini-mart where you check in. All hook ups are contained in a very attractive power panel at the rear of the site with a light on top that comes on at dusk. These folks have thought of everything.

This is a wonderful, family oriented park. We had a nose-in site which we'd never experienced before, but it provided much privacy. Each site has it's own fire ring which is a bonus. The only drawback is there is no pool; that would be nice for the kids. It has a great playground and is close to lots of things to see and do. The owners provided a nice list of local attractions, sites and restaurants which is always helpful. We are definitely going back again.
