Date of Stay: May, 2015
We booked three nights, but stayed two. It rained a couple of times during our stay. Since the pull-through pad was just big enough for our 34 foot Super C, we got muddy shoes when working around or walking around the motorhome. There were no concrete patios. The Wi-Fi was very good when it was clear; nonexistent when it was raining. We were unable to use the greenway around the park because of rain and mud, so we left a day early. The park is 13 miles inland from Interstate 75, so bring food for all meals. There is a newer, gated, much nicer section of the park which would have cost us only $2.00 more per night, but unfortunately we were excluded from that section. Only class A's were permitted to camp there, and we have a Super C. Those RV sites had very large concrete sites, large enough to be both pad and patio, and a beautiful community center with pool and hot tub. This park might be a nice place to camp if you meet their requirements of having a class A, staying a minimum of one week on the class A sites, and if the weather is clear during your visit.

We camped here at a half price rate of $19.50 with our passport america, since it was still out of season. The pool, bathrooms, showers, and community areas were all in very good condition (our only problem was that the two times my husband used the bathroom, the motion sensor light turned the lights out after 6 minutes, leaving him in the pitch dark to finish up and try to find the exit.) I've marked the park low because of the problems at the RV sites themselves: our site was supposed to have cable, but they had already stopped cable service because the snowbirds would be coming in a couple of weeks and would be paying for their own installations; our site was a combination of grass and mud, no trees or any other shrubs, and our patio (and the others we observed) were only six feet wide and so old, cracked and driven over that they didn't offer any relief from the mud and dirt. This park would be suitable for a stay of one or two days, but we wouldn't deal with any longer than that. And the traffic on SR 60 (Gulf to Bay) leading to Clearwater Beach is horrendous.

We stayed five nights (including 1 night free with their coupon). This is the third time we have stayed there. The campground is perfect for our needs--very well maintained sites, excellent security, very nature oriented (this time, six deer ate grass around our site every day). Walking through any part of the community is a nature walk. Our main destination outside the park has been the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge,on the coast, less than 20 minutes away. The Canaveral National Seashore and Cape Kennedy are right there, too. This place is really a bargain for the amenities, as far as we're concerned. Antenna reception was fine for us. We don't have internet needs, so no problem there.

We paid half price with our Passport America membership for each night of camping. This is the fourth time we have stayed at this park. We always find it to be kept very clean, with beautiful landscaping and excellent bathhouse facilities. The husband and wife on-site managers are friendly and helpful. The office manager is very courteous and helpful, too. The sites are roomy and in good shape. The park is just across the bridge from the beach. All around, a nice, quiet place to rest and relax.
Date of Stay: October, 2013
We camped at this park a total of ten days during October, 2013 (5 days the middle of October and 5 days the end of October.) On both occasions we found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and professional in their dealings with us. We stayed each time in a premium site which was level, shaded and pull through. When the weather cooled during our second stay, the pool was heated. The park is conveniently located within a few blocks of the Pinellas Trail. We walked every day on a walkway that was separate from the one used by bikers. We were less than half a mile away from a new grocery store, a drugstore, and a shopping plaza, as well as the causeway leading to Honeymoon and Caledesi Islands. We'll definitely go back to this park in the future. We belong to Passport America, so we paid half price for each night of our stay.

This is a very clean, well kept park. At check in, we were immediately impressed with the well maintained grass and flowers around the office. The staff was friendly and provided us with an escort to our site, which was level, pull through, and grassy, with a paving block patio. I was very impressed with the clubhouse, which was close to our site. It was spotless, with at least six large, separate shower bathrooms with locking doors. A large meeting room adjoined the shower area, with numerous chairs, tables, some exercise machines, a full kitchen, and cupboards full of games, books, and puzzles. We will definitely stay at this park again. It was only 1/4 mile from I-75 at the southernmost Ocala exit. There were numerous restaurants close by, including Sonny's barbeque and Cracker Barrel. This RV park was only a 50 minute drive from Gainesville, FL, which we went to the University of Florida's Museum of Natural History of Florida (excellent and free) and the Butterfly Exhibition next door to the museum (nominal fee for a world-class experience).
