It's on the beach. If you want sand, sun, and ocean this works. Site was very uneven and couldn't level with jacks. Some motor homes were well off their wheels to try to level. Restrooms were not private. No place to hang clothes, towel or to put soap and shampoo. I gave it a poor rating mostly because we were across from an over flowing dumpster and the shower situation. Didn't check the laundry. You must check in at the hotel and our coach would not fit in the entry so we parked in the RV park and walked back to hotel to check in.

We've stayed here before because it's convenient to Crystal River. This time we requested a site on the lower level and it was okay but not level. It is a very wooded and rustic park but with nice pool, showers and laundry. Cable was provided but picture was very fuzzy on our high-def TV. Husband loves showers as they are individual complete bathrooms. Water pressure was good.

Date of Stay:

We spent the winter here and chose it because it is 2 miles to the beach. Park is old and not built for large motor homes. "Sardines in a can" comes to mind. Neighbors felt it was okay to sit their chairs under our window awnings to get out of the sun. Cable blacks out daily. Water pressure is terrible. Had wifi in park when we arrived but park discontinued it. You must go to clubhouse to use it. Manager is very unfriendly. Restrooms/showers are clean but there is no set time when they clean so you don't know until you go over if you'll be able to use. Laundry is by card that has a $10.00 minimum. Cost of a wash/dry is 3.00 so if you do 3 loads they get an extra $1.00 from you. Lawn service mowed when we first arrived but were careless about trimming. They only showed up every 2-3 weeks later in stay but weeds and grass continued to grow. We have weeds growing around our tires and steps. We arrived before our neighbors so didn't have a problem parking but they had to move their truck and flowers before we could pull out. Will not return.

This is our third stay in this park. It is a very wooded, primitive camping style, with full hookups. Sites are grass, if you're lucky. It has rained almost non-stop since we arrived two days ago and we must walk through muddy sand to get to the car. There are a lot of full time residence now and it's beginning to look a little junky. We were here this time two years ago and were almost the only ones on the upper level. Restrooms/showers are wonderful. There are 6 individual shower, sink with mirror and stool in the building. The downside, if the park was full, is the fact that there are only two buildings(one on each level). We return here every year for appointments and to visit friends. I think we'll try someplace different next year. Nightly fee was Passport America.

This was our second stay at this park. First, 1 1/2 years ago was pleasant. In the first hour we were given 3 different sites. No. 104 to narrow (between lightpost & row of shrubs) to fit our 41 ft. class A. Also not a level spot on it. Site 106 we backed into, tried to level but even with boards could not level (front wheels were off the ground). Opened slides and started doing our home routine. Hubby comes back inside to say we don't have 50 amp. Site 79 had a concrete pad & patio so we went through routine again. Last thing we do is hook up cable tv. Guess what? No cable on this site. Since we had paid $80.00 deposit they came out and strung a cable three sites down to hook us up. When we arrived I told them we would be unable to stay the 7 days we'd planned. She said she would issue a credit for the remainder but she hadn't had a credit sale that day and she would have to wait until she had a sale to credit our account. This seemed very strange to me but I told her I would check back the next day. On the 4th day of our stay they had a sale and I received our credit. Still think this is strange. Used the laundry and was not happy with the condition of the washers. The rim around all 4 openings hadn't been cleaned in a very long time. There is no sink in laundry so couldn't clean myself. What we have discovered is they have sold most of the park to a developer and I think that is the area they are not doing any maintenance on. The park was 3/4 empty and we could have been assigned a site that is used in the winter for long term use. They are level, full concrete, look like newer electric boxes and probably have cable. We stay here because it is very close to relatives. If we stay again we will drive around, find a site and request that one. I advise you to do the same.

This is a state park, which we were happy to find would accommodate our coach and had full hook-ups. Park is very wooded with lovely live oaks, dripping with moss. The park is very tight getting into site, but trees are far enough from coach to accommodate our slides. Cable and Wi-Fi are excellent. Beach is just a short drive from park. There is a small IGA grocery on the island but would need a trip off island for something larger. Entrance fee for island was $10 for coach. Daily fees for car to come and go is $6. We would stay here again.

What can I say that is positive about this campground? Ladies at check-in were friendly. It's a very old park that needs some TLC. Lot was level except for large dip (from much rain) where front tires would sit. This is an Encore/Thousand Trails park which made me believe they don't have any standards that need to be met to maintain their membership. Our rate is Passport America, which is all I would ever pay to stay here. We had inches between our slide and a cluster of Live Oaks. Couldn't open storage so we could wash front window. Getting around trees wasn't a big problem but lanes inside park were very rutted from rains. Do not GPS coordinates. They will take you to a plantation. Ask for directions when you call for reservations. I wouldn't pay for cable either; it's worthless. Verizon MiFi did not work. Would not stay here again.

If you are looking for a small park, this one is not for you. It is huge, although just a short walk to the beach. Lots are just long enough for a big rig. They are very wide, enough room on both sides to park your towed and your neighbors have the same nice width. Some lots have nice concrete pads & patios. Ours (K5) did not and when it rained 3/4 of the space was ankle deep. Lot was relatively level. Fortunately we parked our car on the higher spot. Rate was based on a IRV2 Rally we attended. Husband used the showers 3 times; twice he didn't have hot water. The park is clean and they pick up trash every morning.

This is an older park, however, the very friendly owners have only owned it a year. The office is very nice, showers wonderful. It looks like they "inherited" some full time people that makes the park look run down. Several people who appear to work in the area as well. They have started working on things. e.g., wood on picnic tables are being replaced. Showers and office look new. Pool, although we didn't use, looked inviting. We were in a pull-through and it appears they keep these for people staying a short time. Nice crepe myrtle trees between each site. We would stay here again if in the area.

Lovely state park with nice roads and easy access to sites. They only have 3 full hook-up sites (No. 24, 25, 26). We stayed in 26. Call for reservation if you want one of these. The rest are typical state park sites. Ranger and assistant were very friendly. Enjoyed the quiet evening and would stay here again.

This is an older campground with lots of full time residents that look like they've been there a long time. Roads are rough with large traffic control bumps. When we set up, I found clothes and other items on the floor in the closet. Can't say they were friendly or unfriendly, they were present. Cable reception was good. Verizon hot spot did not work. We were only there one night and didn't use showers. Best thing it was close to I-70.

We stayed on the long term side and price is based on monthly rate. This is a very clean well kept park. The showers (6) are individual rooms for lots of privacy inside the activity/laundry/snack bar area. Staff are friendly. Streets are wide enough to get around and most of the lots on long term side are quite roomy. I would have rated it a 10 had it not been for the cable TV problem. We had a flat screen TV but it wasn't digital, and we could not get any channels. We were told at the front desk that we needed a digital TV to get their cable. They went so far as to say we needed to purchase a new one. We have stayed in other parks that are totally digital and we were always given a converter box (supplied by cable company) usually a $25.00 deposit so you'll return it. I'm sure this cable company would supply them to the park as they do any of their customers who do not have digital TVs. Since nice RV parks are few and far between in this area we will probably return when we visit family and friends.

Yes, it is a resort. It has very nice suites and cabins. The RV park looks like they just decided to throw it into the mix. Sites are stone and mostly level. We had no problem backing into our site. A nice stone buffer area between sites, but with sporadic picnic tables. We had weeds. We are in a 40 ft. RV and the electric box was behind the back wheel and the water was at the front wheel and the sewer was in front of the coach. We did not have enough sewer hose to hookup. If you are into rafting and other sports you'll probably love it here. We were in site 109 and we had WiFi. They have a No Name Bar & Grill that we thought would be a nice place to have a glass of wine and dinner. It's picnic style tables on open deck, which was nice, if they'd been clean. Tables were "beer" sticky. Food was not great. We only stayed one night and I think it was way overpriced for the quality of the park.

Park is half privately owned lots that can be rented and half public. We chose public due to price, 37.80 with AARP discount. Price may seem high to some but you are in a high tourist area so I think you can expect to may more. Private side has complete concrecte pads and patios, but we find the gravel and patio fine. GPS wanted us to drive 3 miles further, fortunately we saw their sign as we passed and were able to turn around in the gas station just beyond the hotel. Watch for Holiday Inn Express and slow down, park is not far beyond. Large sign but you can't see park from road. If you are need of a "real" grocery store there is the City Market (Smiths/Kroger) on the south end of town. Nice grocery. Besides the NP's we drove out to the winery along the river and the drive is beautiful. Gentleman who checked us in was very nice and helpful. We would stay here again.

Park is clean and well maintained. Rate is GS. If you stay 6 days 7th is free. Coming north on Rt.12 GPS location was 6 miles too soon. Park is on the corner of 12 & 24. Noisy during day but quiets down at night. Cable is basic and WIFI works sporadically during the day and not at all after 3 p.m. Plenty of restaurants and fuel but grocery is in Loa, 18 miles west on 24. Good spot to see Capital Reef or a stop over.
