Date of Stay: January, 2013
This park is very nice snowbird park. Park is big with over 900 campsites that are occupied by snowbirds and weekend campers. It is very nice and clean. There are three nice bathhouse. Laundry room has over 20 washers and dryers in it. Very clean and taken care of. You have concrete pad and patio with a picnic table. Wireless is available but with a charge. There is cable TV which is a must for a snowbird location with limited satellite view. There are trees some sites were able to get a signal on their roof-mounted satellite dish, but you can put up a remote dish. No outside clotheslines can be used. You have someone in the office seven days a week, from 8am to 6pm, which take good care of you. We will stay here again, when going through the area.

This park has the potential to be a very nice snowbird park but it has a long way to go. Park has a small loop of 30 campsites that are occupied by snowbirds, and it looks very nice and clean. There is a nice bathhouse, but it is only a one female and one male use. Laundry is in a metal shed with two washers and dryers (which isn't enough for a full house of campers), and there are no picnic tables at the sites. Wireless is available but it is not reliable, it was constantly cutting off so you can't depend on it. There is no cable TV which is a must for a snowbird location with limited satellite views. There were a lot of trees but some campers couldn't even put their awnings out because of close trees and branches, and some sites were able to get a signal on their roof-mounted satellite dish so you need to put up a remote dish. Most of the sites are long, but the patio portion is located towards the front of the site. So if you have a Class A (Gas) or a Fifth wheel with a mid or rear door, you will have to exit on the grass, however no rugs are allowed on the grass (Rule #2). Rule #1 of the four rules posted on the reservation receipt states: "Avoid storing items under your camper." There is a camper on the end of the loop #114 that has so much packed under it that they must be full-timers. Rule #2 is: "No area rugs or mats on the grass." (As stated previously, this really is terrible because of the concrete patio placement.) Rule #3 is: "No outside clotheslines." The other rule is to cleanup after your pet. My point with mentioning the rules is because there is no permanent manager/host. The owner only comes infrequently, and they need someone on-site managing the place. The snowbirds take up the slack of the day-to-day duties like: taking trash cans to the main road for the trash truck, assisting guests to campsites, etc. Every time we tried to call to make a reservation, the number has a full mailbox, so you cannot leave a message. If you call several times in a row, the owner will eventually call you back based on caller ID. Emails were not answered, so don't bother with that either. A major misconception on their website is the statement: "This resort is a pristine gated getaway." The resort is NOT gated as stated. If you are a snowbird and do not want any amenities, this would be a nice place to stay. However at $495 a month, it's expensive compared to other resorts closer to Foley Beach. There is nothing to do in the area. We stayed here in November and December, however we won't be staying here again.
