This is a very quaint, peaceful spot that is beginning to fall apart. Which is a shame, as a lot of the 100 year old pecan trees are dying and on every tree there are limbs that have either fallen, or blown down from storms or rot. We tried pull-through spot number 2 and the power didn't work so we were told to hook up to number 3 next to us as the husband of the park was tired and busy cutting up and hauling away pieces of one of their huge pecan trees. In about an hour we got a power surge and it fried our inverter box filling the coach with burnt electrical insulation smell. We spent the rest of the evening rewiring our coach to limp home and during the night it rained hard, so there were puddles lined up right outside our door to splash in and jump over. We stayed here 4 years ago and it needed gravel put down back then, but for whatever reason, no money seems to be going back into the park for updates. We seemed to be the only ones with electrical problems though, so it may have been just our time. If I were to recommend anyone staying here, I'd advise against parking underneath any of the pecan trees. The owners are pleasant folks and it's right across from the lake and boating and fishing, but the dock is also falling apart.

A mixture of long term, overnighters, clubs and tent campers. Wash room was clean with 3 out of 4 machines on each side working at $1.50 per load for each. It was fairly quiet or would have been, but we ended up next to some very inconsiderate neighbors who feel the need to open up all their windows while playing loud music until 1am, along with outdoor campfires & considerable in/out door slamming. Even during the day time, trying to sit outdoors we are treated to the loud tv soundtrack of " Scooby Doo" and " Hee-Haw". It's been very difficult to enjoy the outdoors here with pine and cypress trees around. We've ended up spending most of the day indoors because of this. We are supposed to be here for a month but we'll probably leave earlier due to the noisy neighbors. If we came back we'd not choose the back of the park where most of the long term neighbors are. There are some nice, long pull-throughs up near the front. There is a club house but you can't use it unless you come in with a club and there's a huge pool but I never saw anyone using it so either it was too cold or it's also a clubhouse perk. The sites in back are raised and graveled, but parking is difficult since the area next to the motorhomes for parking are deep and fill up with LOTS of water during rains. We had our tow dolly in there and the wheels were half covered from one rain storm and we had to wait until it dried out to move it. If we'd had our car there it would have been completely mired in the mud. You might have better luck parking perpendicular to your rig but for the large railroad ties preventing you from doing so. You have to jockey your car in and around to get it to fit without being in the road. Staff is very pleasant, no patio, picnic table, etc. Price reflects a guess on nightly as we paid $494.00 for the month.

We stayed 2 nights in a pull through with a 35 foot motorhome and a TOAD of total 55 feet. Rates reflect Passport America rates. A perfectly good and safe place to stop while on the road and the people we met were very nice, even invited us to an ice cream social. Wonderfully full _huge_ library in the clubhouse. We'd stay here again for overnights, but opted to stay elsewhere for a month as we felt their monthly rate of $485. + electric was far too high for the area as just down the road was @$100 less, plus we found we could stay on Padre Island itself for less than what they charge. Very busy park with lots of dogs and golf carts.

We pulled in this afternoon to find the office locked with no notes on how to contact the owner nor what to do if they weren't there. We couldn't tell where they put RVs as it looked to be pretty full already with most of the park single wide long term owners. Someone drove by and said they'd go get the owner and 15 minutes later they came back and said the owner had been notified they had a customer and would be over shortly. We hung around for another 20 minutes, walked through the park and decided to leave. I give them a zero for not being foresighted enough to have provided contact information or at the very least, instructions on where to park if no one was around. We were tired, hungry and wanted to get settled in for the night, not waiting around for hours. We won't be back.

Excellent WIFI speed, sites are level under beautiful oaks. I got the impression it's recently been bought by the couple at the office and they've been trying to trim all the trees to accommodate all size rigs. We were checked in in 10 minutes and led directly to our requested pull through. The road is noisy and there is an occasional train, but we don't hear it inside our rig. I have no complaints and if not for the road noise I'd have given it a 10, but then again, being so near the main road means you don't have to follow a GPS to get there. Very clean place and we'd stay here again.

The owners are about the nicest people we've met during our travels and this was our 2nd year we have stayed here. The noise from the road is constant but you can't hear it inside, and while there aren't any showers it does have a laundry room. What this park has going for it is close proximity to just about everything from New Orleans to Bilox- it's about 40 minutes to either one. Walmart and Clairborne Hill Grocery is 1-2 mile trip and the entire strip of Highway 90 in front of the park gives access to many restaurants and shops between Waveland to Pass Christian. The beach is not far to the south and if you go north you'll be at the Stennis Space Center. Slidell is just 20 minutes west as is Gulfport to the east for shopping. If you like the Casinos; Silver Slipper and Hollywood Casinos are nearby and easy to get to. Their weekly buffets are put together with very talented chefs. This park is a mixture of working vs. retired travelers and we'd stay there again next year as well.
