This is a lovely little park 5 miles north of the intersection of I-10 and I-75. It is a laid back small campground atmosphere, with warm welcoming owners. Southern charm with tall trees and randomly placed lawn chairs and tables make the homey atmosphere all that more inviting. They offer multiple discounts from 10-50% depending on what group you are associated with. Lots of room to walk and enjoy the natural surroundings. A McDonald's and a couple of fueling stations are located .7 miles west of the park on Route 136 at exit 439 on I-75. Definitely a nice place to stop on your way to or from southern Florida.

Only Class A motor homes are allowed. Although available, you must pay for internet, TV, and phone connections. If you speak French, you will love this place. It is a haven for French Canadians, and few others. The layout of the resort is lovely, but the area around the resort in the community is questionable at best. It is in a very depressed area, if safety is a concern. The nightly rate is not completely accurate, because the minimum stay is a month at $1500 at current rates. The facility is surrounded by canals, with potential of alligators coming onto the property, and retention areas which can become mosquito breeding areas. Fire ants are a big issue throughout the park. Many of those who have purchased their sites have begun substantial landscaping and building of Tiki huts and concrete storage buildings on their sites. Eventually this will destroy the openness and the lovely breeze in this one year old resort. The facility is laid out nicely and is well lit at night, with security gate closed from 7 pm to 7 am.

Beware! There is absolutely no communication via cell phone or local phone at this location. Internet service is marginal at best. Fuel at the resort is outrageously priced, significantly more than anyplace else in the park. Sites are primitive, compared to other RV parks in Death Valley. Very remote location on west side of the park. No play areas for children. Access for large rigs very difficult.

This is a delightful place with wide paved streets, plenty of parking, plenty of turning radius. The staff is warm and personable. The biggest challenge is you must disconnect any tow vehicles in order to connect to the sewer which was placed at the far rear of the site. Everything works well. A water pressure regulator is needed because of the high water pressure to the campground.

The sites are large and plenty long for any towed vehicle; but have trees in the way of running slides out. The management is friendly and helpful, but we never did manage to get the local 5 TV channels. They blamed our cable wire, which has worked at ever other site around the country. The roads within the park are very dusty, although the site itself has gravel. It is located 11 miles west of Gunnison itself. It is not lakeside at all. In fact it is across the highway from a state run campground that is on the lake.
