.We bought a new RV from Lazy Days. We were perked a 2 week stay at any Encore travel park so we chose this one. The lots are barely long enough for a 40' RV with a tow or towed vehicle. We had to park our truck under our RV and was still partly on the street. The width of the lots are 9' with no patio area. When we arrived we needed to have limbs and shrubs trimmed to get backed in far enough to try to make room for the truck. The workers arrived to do the job quickly, but did not remove the debris, rather just piled it on top of the palmettos that they did not cut. We had several power surges with outages. The sewer caps are so far back, that you may need a long sewer hose to reach. Some of the lots, though paved, are caved in which would make it a challenge to put your jacks down, or level if your wheels are in a hole. They had many empty lots but we were not given a choice. We were parked near the side of the interstate and could hear the traffic with our windows shut and the AC running.

This park should be closed by the health department. Permanent campers drain waste water right on the ground. The laundry backs up the water pipes and over flows if too many people try to wash clothes. The old fashioned septic tank is not able to handle all the waste water that this park makes. Waste water goes on the ground and overflows. This place is just nasty. At least you can just walk across the street to get booze and gas.

This park needs another entrance/exit as it would be easier getting a 40' coach in then out. The turns were okay on the way to our site. When leaving we had to take the same route back to the gate and got caught on a turn that had us inches from buildings on two opposite corners as we squeezed through. Unless they make another way in and out we just can't do that again.

No one has mentioned the bad aspects of this park. When making your reservation, be sure you can completely fit on the lot you are renting. If your vehicle sits even a foot past the curb, you will need to put it in the storage lot for $4 a night. Some of the lots used to have old campers on them with Florida rooms. The concrete pad of the Florida rooms are left behind when they remove them to make an RV lot. The problem with this is, today's larger RVs are too wide to sit along side the patio and not hang over on to the neighbors lot line on the other side. Be sure to ask all these questions during your initial phone conversations. If you are a boater, the locations is great!

This park has a mixture of residents and transients. It is nice that they have boat docks for everyone at no additional cost. There is a new pool which will be open by spring. The water quality is poor and has taste, odor and color. You will want to buy potable water. It seems to be the norm for the area. The park sits next to the very busy road and traffic starts before 6 a.m. on weekdays.

The trees are not kept trimmed to the standard 13' height where necessary. Pull thrus are not pull thrus if you can not pull thru because of limbs. Trees growing over roads in places are too low for todays modern 5th wheel and coach heights. The swimming pool is not kept sanitary. It is a cesspool most of the time and has been shut down due to contamination which sickened swimmers. The place has in ground holding tanks which have been filled to overflowing on the ground before being pumped out.
