This is a park with two personalities. I have been here over a weekend when the invasion of golf carts and partiers are rampant. I would not come here again during that period again. However, as a stop over or mid week couple of nights this is an excellent facility. All concrete pads and roads, large pull thru, great service, export to the space. And it does have excellent facilities when not over run. Close to the interstate. Close to a lot of restaurants and interesting places to see.

Date of Stay:

I read all the prior reviews and was looking forward to the stop over. The couple that owns/runs the park gets a "5" for helpfulness and involvement. It is a new park so this is still a park in progress. The utilities are first rate. The pull thru spaces are long and the exit angle is very good. The park is close to I10 - but the entrance is tricky for a 45 ft motorhome with tow. All the interior roads are fine grain sand - the pads have some grass/gravel mixed in. It had rained the day before and I was concerned about making the sharp turns to get to our area. If there was serious rain in the area I would be concerned. There were some bothersome ruts and the interior roads are very bumpy - the spaces not level and need some work. The downside of the pull thru spaces are you are VERY close to the Interstate - like in the 100 yard range. There is no vegetation buffer so you are listening to the traffic and trucks all night - even in a MH the noise was loud. I have never commented about the price of a park but $40 seems very high to me for what you get. I would love to rate this park higher - if just for the great owners but the facilities are just not developed yet.

This place is a 10 - by any standard. We visit a lot of high end resorts and this is certainly in the top 5 nationally. Grounds are beautiful. Roadways are spacious. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great gym in the clubhouse. 2 nice tennis courts and they keep the place immaculate. We had a lake view and it was fantastic. You are 2 miles to Marco Island and about 5 miles to old town Naples and there are literally dozens and dozens of great restaurants. If I had to be picky, the only think I would comment on is there are very few activities - although they did have a Christmas buffet/BYOB which was very nice. If you want to be in south Florida, this is the place.

Great overnight spot very close to I10. About 1/2 mile from the exit - easy to find just read the signs and look at the website - it is the second park on the right. Easy on and off. Not a resort but helpful staff, easy access to my site even with a 45 foot and tow, and easy out. You do hear some highway noise but not bad at all. I would not hesitate at staying here again.

This is an great overnight sp0t. There were a number of permanent and snowbird campers around the perimeter but the center section is for overnight campers. Easy on and off I75. Easy roads to navigate even for a 45 foot with tow car. Nothing special, certainly not resort but a clean, well laid out facility.

This is a great park. Perfect for overnight - close to interstate. Owners live on site - across from office. Not a resort type place, but the pride of ownership shows everywhere. Lots of flowers and carvings. Very clean. Some minor traffic noise but really perfect stopover. I will stay here when ever I have the opportunity. Excellent is all I can say.

Park in transition for big rig/pull thru sites. They are in the process of building a new section for pull thru's which will make the a great park. Existing sites are very tight and rely on being able to navigate across grass to enter and exit which is fine when hard and dry - not when rainy and wet. Owner is extremely helpful. I had an attached trailer that could not be separated and he bent over backwards to fit me in the park. Lots of things for kids and exceptionally well cared for. The owner was constantly maintaining. I will be back next year when the new section is complete. Very close to interstate and major truck stops.

Date of Stay:

Reasonable distance from Interstate. Nestled between a number of mobile home parks but not too bad. Helpful office staff. Pretty lake nearby. This is the definition of big rig possible vs big rig friendly. Pull thru sites are near the office and there are HUGE trees to navigate both entering and exiting. VERY tight driving angles. if you don't have a helper navigating I would not take a big rig here and even with one, I would not stay here again. The dumpster was overfilled with carpet and padding from a near by park model. It was so full everyone just piled their trash on top and around it. It was 25 feet froth office and in clear view. Disgusting. Mature trees make satellite impossible.

Stayed for one night with a 45 ft MH and 20 foot trailer. Office was supposed to be open until 5 on Sunday - closed at 3. Had to work with security and maintenance folks - who were very helpful. Roads are VERY twisty and narrow. LOTS of low tree limbs. I was 45 fee/MH with a 20 foot trailer that could not be disconnected nor could I back into a regular space. We were given a space in a large grass field near the office. Difficult to navigate. If it rains/has rained you will be in trouble. Could never get the bus close to level. Also turned out the they had no sewer and only 30 amp in this area. Also no cable. Eventually one of the helpful maintenance guys suggested I plug into 50 amp electrical in an unoccupied cabin nearby. Thankfully I had 50 foot extension. Forget satellite - air TV was one national channel. Leaving involved dodging more low limbs - unsuccessfully and running over a grass median with a cut down tree stump to get an angle to escape. There are a lot of permanent looking units there which are nicely kept. Nice surroundings but the area where I was given is not big rig friendly if you are unable to disconnect your trailer/car.

We had seen the numerous reviews and wanted to check out the park for a potential longer stay. For an overnight place it is not convenient: it is about 20 miles from Interstate 10. The park appears to be designed for owners and they occasionally rent spaces. Much of the park is as of yet undeveloped. Until then the lots are grass: neatly trimmed. Interior roads are wide and excellent, pads are all concrete and spaces differ with number and type of amenities. It is about a 15 minute drive to the beach area. Very busy highways so bicycles are not an option. The clubhouse is very nice. The workout room is one of the best we have seen. Landscaping is attractive. The park is bordered on three sides by farms. One side by a housing development and is quiet, if not a feeling of being pretty remote. If you want to be near the beach there are other options. If we are in the area again, we would opt for one of the other class A parks. Just to be closer to the beaches and restaurants.

This is a mixed use campground. Some permanent campers and units is one section, RVs in another. Not a problem. About 1 mile off I-10 and an easy shot. Very long and wide spaces for big rigs. Pull-through and no need to disconnect. There are 6 of that size. Easy in and out. Utilities fine but water pressure only 35 PSI, which they told me on check in. There is a pool and playground which look fine but we did not use. Office staff helpful. Great for an overnight in north Florida. Pads are asphalt and grass/gravel. Not great but OK. I would stay here again if traveling in this area.

This is a park for people who have children and like the on site activities. From what we could see, they were all having a good time. It is very much out of the way for any type of a stop over park. There is very little in the surrounding area. The National Forest is a long drive. The spaces were definitely long enough to not disconnect. Plenty of room but you are parking in a grass field. In the event it rains you could have a problem. It appears that there are a lot of full timers located along the tree line: where the shade is. Not a problem as this is physically a large park. Maintenance was ok, but the landscaping has seen better days. Fire ring is an old truck wheel. Front office staff was polite. We kept blowing the breaker in the first space we were in. The owners moved us and all was fine. I would say OK for an overnight park if it wasn't so far out of the way.

Overall a nice facility. We booked a space near the lagoon and the views were attractive. Nice pool facility, workout room, and laundry. Overall the grounds are lush and heavily treed - as in no satellite but cable worked fine. All sites are concrete or improved tile. Guided to site upon entry. Office staff friendly. Convenient to the main road entering the island. You do not want to have to use the many roundabouts that are all over the island. Confusing and tight. Close to beaches, restaurants and other island activities. All lots are privately owned and there is a big difference in level of amenities. The majority of the spaces we saw could use a serious clean up - from tree trimming to general maintenance. While this is certainly more of a resort in nature than a campground, it does not match up to other privately owned parks we have visited. If in the area I would come back.

Overall a nice campground about a mile off Interstate 40. Easy entrance and exit. The place had a friendly vibe - mostly adults and pretty social. They advertise pull-through sites - which are actually two sites back to back. They are only pull through if no one is in the other site otherwise you have to back in. What is really strange is the placement utilities. In almost every situation - if all spaces are full - your door will be about 5 feet from your neighbor's sewer connection. Not an issue when we were there but the spaces by our door was vacant the whole time. I am generally a "rules" person but there seemed to be an overwhelming number of rules and posted signs with rules. Not a problem but just different. Nice stream runs through the back of the property. There is a wood/tree processing facility across the street - in the early hours you can definitely hear the plant. Not a big deal but not exactly peaceful either. I would stay here again - it is about 5-7 miles to any number of restaurants or stores. Office people were helpful. After we were there for 3 days they decided we were not far enough forward in our pull-through space - so we had to disconnect, take in slides etc and move 10 feet forward. We were apparently using the wrong sewer connection. Kind of a pain as we ere leaving first thing the next morning. All in all - we would sty here again.

This is a two part rating. We camped in a 45 Ft. RV with tow vehicle. This is an older facility that is NOT big rig friendly and anyone thinking it is should be VERY careful. We had to make 2 very tight 180 degree U-Turns with lots of trucks sticking out onto the road and back in. Not sure where the pull-through big rig friendly spots are but I never saw them. Once in our space with patio was nice. Very expensive - but well thought out. Utilities worked fine and where convenient. No satellite due to trees - cable worked fine. On the other hand if you have a smaller rig this is a fantastic place for families and kids. Great playground, movies, right on the river with tubing etc. It is only 15 minutes from Cades Cove and definitely a much quieter alternative to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. With the right camper this is a great choice. With a large rig that you want to comfortably get in and out, not so much. Staff was fantastic. Our rig is very tall and I asked them to cut a tree limb we would touch when exiting - did the next day with no problem. They guide you to the site - helpful staff. So overall - good marks if you have an appropriate size RV.
