This is not really a park, It is an open field of hard packed grass with full hook-ups and a picnic table at each site with a fence around the open field. We stayed overnight and would probably not have stayed if I had seen the place before hubby made reservations. You drive in on a dirt and gravel road behind the Marathon gas station and you pay at the gas station. The 50 amp full hook-ups worked fine, our hot spot worked great as did our cell phone reception. Our one and only close neighbor was friendly and the lady that checked us in was pleasant. I looked in at the open air partially covered washers and dryers and they were serviceable. I didn't open the doors to the restrooms to look inside. There are several full time residents under the trees in the back area. No frills but everything worked and It is convenient to the freeway. OK for an overnight.

We stayed in the handicap site, #66, across from the restroom in the new area. Our site was level, many were not. Some were under trees, some out in the open. We loved our beautiful wide, long, level cement pad near the water. There were dozens of big rigs around this huge Broward County Park and we enjoyed the three nights we stayed. So much to do! The staff was friendly and so were our neighbors. There is a large school with a well lit field across the huge lake that may bring some noise during games but I am a lite sleeper and slept just fine all three nights. It is a huge park, lots of boaters (no swimming) walkers, tennis, racket ball and bike riders. The restrooms were spotless but newer than the rest in the park and I didn't check the old restrooms out. It is a bit more than we normally pay per night but it is a great park and near everything...groceries, shopping, dining, theaters. We would stay again if in the area.

We enjoyed our two stays at this resort although we did have a few problems, none that were bad enough to cross this clean friendly park off our list. It is big rig friendly except after a downpour when the trees sag a bit. With careful inspection of your route in and out, it is possible to keep from scratching the sides and top. Hubby wasn't paying attention and on our way out the second stay, he scraped one of our sides. They could do a better job of trimming. When we arrived the first time, our site was occupied but another was available so we parked at an open space and stayed the night. Next morning we adjusted the paperwork. Not a problem. Some of their long term people do not pay attention to the directional arrows but they will go around if you stop. Our site was level, long enough for our 65 feet, cement, all hook-ups worked, the area was clean, well lit and well manicured, the neighbors were friendly, our hot spot worked fine. Both of our stays were only overnights going to and from Walt Disney World but I wouldn't mind being here for a few weeks next time through.

Loved this RV Resort. We stumbled upon it while looking for a place to leave our RV while renting a villa at Windsor Hills Vacation rentals as we live in it full time. Some shaded sites, lots of open sites, narrow but long sites, lots of long term people, many nicely cared for pre-fab small homes, area was neat and clean, prices were reasonable, it was quiet, our site was level, our hot spot WiFi worked great, full hook-ups all worked, our first site was cement but our second was gravel. People were friendly, the staff was friendly, the facilities are clean, lots to do and many activities if you are so inclined. My only complaint was the careless golf cart driving of their guests. While in our towed, I almost got run off the road twice by elder patrons driving the wrong way, completely ignoring the large arrow directional signs and speeding by me to cut in front of me and turn. Other than that, we both enjoyed our stay.

This is an older park, clean and neat but lots of potholes in the roads, some fixed, some not. Friendly staff. The park has a play area for kids, dog play area, catch and release fishing in the pond and a large function room. Nothing much going on in the winter months. It has a covered indoor pool open seasonally but nothing stating what season. Level cement pads with adequate space in-between, picnic tables and the 50 amp works well. WiFi is slow. We are staying for a month so we are in the back section. It is very quiet but very dark with minimal lighting in the back section. Easy access directly off 105. We would stay again.

We have been overnight here a few times and it was OK. We ask for a quiet area and got one every time but this last time. The main building has been freshly painted but it is still an older park and some resident owners take care of their places better than others. They have shaded sites and full or partial sun but all sites, except for two or three, are gravel and it gets dusty when the wind is blowing hard. For members, they are very reasonable for daily, weekly and monthly. We are members and like that they have events, social activities, laundry facilities and a weigh station but not much for children. This last visit we were planning to volunteer at the Care Center but too many responsibilities changed from the original job description and the site was so close to the main road that we didn't sleep from the all night 18 wheelers passing by. We left to stay at another quiet park.

We only stayed here on a weekend once, then decided weekdays, at one third the price, was a better time to stay. Level sites, clean facilities, cement pads, easy maneuvering into the pull through sites, reasonable weekday prices, friendly staff, they are an older place with lots of prefab cabins to rent but the sites are spacious and it is very quiet on the weekdays. Laundry facilities on site, playground and pool also on site. They have a motor coach that will pick you up at your site for gambling but the casino here is smoking so we don't go. Have stayed here the last three years for five days at a time and are happy with our stays.

Date of Stay:

Level pull through site, crush rock roads and sites, WiFi was not working while we stayed, friendly staff, some activities, dog area, quiet at night, some noise from trucks and airplanes during the day and very dusty if windy. They have a bar and bar food, reasonable transportation into New Orleans. Not sure about anything else. They are in the industrial area but completely fenced. No worse area than the high priced parks in the questionable part of town. Not a resort but a decent reasonable place to stay to visit New Orleans.

Date of Stay:

A few pot holes at the entrance but nice level gravel roads inside. Cement pad, grass in between, picnic table by each site. Easy maneuverability, everything looks very clean and well cared for, individual bathrooms with a shower and sink, friendly office, nice and clean small dog park, close to shopping. Great stay. Would stay again but will ask for a site further away from the road.

Convenient if you want to gamble at the casino. It's a nuisance having to call first then go to the hotel to register and get the key to unlock the hook-ups before pulling into the slip. They are level for 20' and under, not at all for our 45'. Another drawback is the 6am through 10pm mini train whistle that goes off every 15 minutes and runs next to the slips. It is a parking lot with back in RV slips, not a park. It just opened a few months ago so it's spotless, has a trash can for your use, nice wooden swings, full hook-ups that work great, the mini train takes you to the hotel and casino. The water, elect. and sewer hook-ups are at the back but we always travel with extra everything. I was unhappy with the constant 6am-10pm noise so we received a discount. Ask for high numbered sites and hope big rigs park by the train tracks to block the noise.

If location is your first priority, this is the place to stay. Friendly staff, reasonable prices, next to a beautiful park on the lake, walk to Walmart, quiet, clean, dry wood for campfires so no smoke, pet friendly, level sites. No real negatives. They do have lots of seasonal people and the spaces are a little snug if you have several big rigs in a row but we loved the location and the peaceful quiet at night so we will return.

Date of Stay:

Hidden Gem right off the main road. Clean, quiet, our big rig (45') fit nicely along with our towed, pet friendly as long as you pick up after them and keep your fur-baby leashed. We enjoyed the event that was held while we stayed. Friendly owner. We enjoyed our 10 night stay and will return.

Date of Stay:

Very good experience. Wish they would reserve the space once you got there and paid so we would be assured of the same spot we chose and paid for when we had to leave twice for repairs. We shall see if the plastic bag over the power pole continues to hold our site. Many of the sites are level but many are not for our 45' motorhome. Large sites with grassy area in-between. A bit dusty from crushed cement entrance roads but once inside the loop it's less. Looks like a few people have been there a while as the grass under their trailers was high but the grounds are neat and well kept. Security is ongoing and friendly. The train noise is occasional but not bothersome even though I'm a very light sleeper. They have a huge flea market on the weekends and lots of events going through out the year. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Hard to rate a parking lot. No rating for service, no idea where the people collecting money are located. No rating for cleanliness, it's a gravel and asphalt lot with a plug, a faucet and a hole. Front row seats to the weekend flea market across the street. No campsite numbers, just power poles in the ground at the back of back-in spaces. It is completely surrounded, on every side, by train tracks so if you are a light sleeper, it might be a problem.

Date of Stay:

Great stay with other motorhome friends. Not a new place but clean and neat. Laundry machines and restrooms with showers but we didn't use either. Packed dirt, fairly level pull-through sites long enough for our 45' motorhome and towed. Came for the 29th Annual World's Championship Crawfish Etouffee Cook-Off and weekend music at the Barn. Quiet when we arrived but it filled to capacity by Friday night. The Beach was not yet water filled but it looked as if it would be enjoyable. Loved the music in the Barn, free for those camping at the Park. The Barn is non-smoking which is a big plus for me. Wish the owners would make a smoking area further away from the front door as dozens gathered inches from the front door making it hard to get in without breathing the clouds of smoke. Lots of things for kids to do. Lake fishing, playgrounds and the beach, when open. Mostly families. We were at the back of the park by the lake and it was quiet even on the night of the Barn music. Everyone was very considerate about keeping quiet after "quiet time" and we didn't hear the Barn music from our motorhome. A bit dusty up front but not dusty where we were staying. Had fun so we will return and probably bring friends and family.
