We stayed at this campground quite a few years ago and were not much impressed with it, but after reading some recent reviews we decided to give it another try while visiting family over the Christmas holidays. We found it much improved and would recommend it. The sites are mostly pull thrus and for the most part level with easy in and out. The camp store was adequately stocked (probably much better in season) and they have a small area set up with tables and chairs for coffee. We did miss having internet access on site but the cable TV was more then adequate. We would return here in warmer weather (Christmas in Pa. in a 5th wheel was not one of our brightest ideas)

This is our 4th visit to this park. Unfortunately, our latest visit has raised some questions about the viability of the park. Upon arrival we found a building that was under construction last season at a virtual standstill and appears has not been worked on in some time. Our biggest disappointment was the condition of the pool area. Some work was being done last season when we were here, but the area now is weed choked with much other "debris" laying around and it appears a pool is not a reality of the near future. The sites remain the same and are much nicer then most although the overall maintenance seems to be somewhat less then we saw in the past. Showers and rest rooms remain very nice and are kept clean as is the laundry area. Overall it is a nice campground but many of the things the owners told us about don't seem to be on the immediate horizon.

Huge campground and really spread out. Roads are paved and really busy with golf carts, pedestrians and vehicles. Sites are a bit crowded. The "lake" appears to be quite low and there is no access from the campground. Sites are paved but they also have sites on grass. These are also quite close and there is no privacy. Lots of activities. The pool is quite small for the number of sites here. Shopping is about 20 miles or so. We are not golfers but the course appears quite nice. We may return for a short stay but would not want to spend a long time here. Too busy. Not many trees. Too far from towns for us.

For us, this is another campground that is OK for an overnight or at most a couple of days if you need to do something in the area. Access roads from the interstate (I-81) are good 2 lanes, but the campground is somewhat out of the way. Roads in the campground are dirt in near poor condition. We found mostly seasonal occupancy but most units were in good condition and reasonably well kept. There are also several park models. The swimming pool is across the road at the associated motel complex as is the office for RV check-in. Utilities were adequate. Campground was quiet at night. It was raining when we were there and we noted quite a few low areas within the sites that contained standing water as did the roads. The sites are advertised as being gravel but all we could see were grass. Sites appear to be reasonably level. TV reception with off-air antenna was decent. There were no Satellite dishes in view anywhere and we did not attempt to use ours. We would probably try to find another campground in the area that might be more convenient.

After 6 years of being on the road full time and having stayed at many, many campgrounds across the country, this one comes in at number one. We found this campground last year and spent most of the winter season here. We're back this year for the whole season and hopefully for many more to come. Phase II (50 new full hookups sites including 100' long pull thrus)opens tomorrow, which brings the capacity up to 150 sites, all concrete pads, paved driveways, full hookups including cable. Contrary to one other post I see, there is nothing cheap here. The shower and laundry facilities are exceptional and the main clubhouse is like nothing we've seen anywhere. Everything is top rate and the whole campground is groomed and clean. The pool complex is under constructon as I write this with completion projected for spring. Two free form pools, covered open air pavilion, large wood deck and large fish pond complete with waterfall and gristmill with operating water wheel. One of those "you have to see it to believe it" things. The campground is owner built and managed and the pride they have in what they've accomplished here is well deserved. The campground is located between Ocala and Gainesville with all the shopping and entertainment you could want. We highly recommend this campground, and space just doesn't permit all that could be said about it. We would definitely suggest to anyone who finds themselves in the area to stop in and take a tour.

This is an old KOA park that has been recently taken over by new management. It is a large spread out campground with quite a few buildings and they have their share of not in very good condition RV's that appear to be rather permanent. We were told that improvements were ongoing but it's evident much work needs to be done. The sites are all dirt, sand or a combination of both. They all appeared to be level, but most would benefit from raking and picking up. The wireless system is good as long as you go to the office to use it (they have a computer room there). Out in the park it is not accessable. The staff all appear to be friendly and helpful and most are workcampers. The pool is large and clean and although heated, not very warm. They appear to have some activities. Even though it is next to an interstate,traffic noise was hardly noticed. For as large as it is, it was a very quiet campground. All the facilities were adequate. The reason for the low rating is mostly due to the disparity between the high daily rate, and the present condition of the property. Until further improvements are made, the word "resort" should be removed from the name. It's an ok place for a few days.

This is a good park to use as a base to tour the Savannah area. We were here for a week and saw no problems with sewers or anything else. The laundry room was heavily used and was never shut down. We used it twice. The mobile home park next door is mostly single wides and is well maintained, clean and quiet. We saw no problems with this. The campsites up front are mostly all long FHU pull-throughs: easy in and out. The sites by the lake are back-ins but are also good size, level, gravel sites with plenty of room for jockying the rig around. Wi-Fi is available but can't be "hit" from all sites. Some folks have to go sit near the office or in the laundry room. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. The only problem we saw was ants which were a problem for everyone who is here for longer then a few days. The park does try to keep the critters at bay but it helps to spray around the rig every couple of days. This was not a problem for us. We would recommend this park.
