Just arrived to friendly greeting. Escorted to a large spacious big rig accommodating site. Huge pad on a stream; very clean. Wish we had picnic table for cook out but the rest is as expected. Great Internet and cable TV, although we have satellite for reception. Hookups close by and well situated. /The "Preserve Estates" is section for large motorhomes. We were escorted to our location and assisted parking on pad--a plus and safer. They could use landscaping between spots but most deeded spots had small park models and screened porches for owners. Many dog runs kept clean and accessible. Will try on the site store and restaurant today and see sights of Ocala/ Silver Springs. Perfect location just off route 40 on edge of huge forest. Easy to find with big signage. Could use more street lights at night . Preserve section gated and requires separate key access. Appears older sections were for older established residents who purchased years ago. Pools and recreation halls are well kept, with separate private access for gym and game room. Well thought out to avoid damage and safety for guests. Limit on unruly children. Again a plus. We did not see a motorhome older than 2010 in Preserve Estates. Multiple clean fountains and streams...will try fishing if temp rises but it is 39 degrees this AM. Cold for Florida!

This was our second visit to this small RV campground by the Indian River in Sebastian , FL. Clean and well maintained but they have neglected to add any cable TV since our last visit. Disappointing since this is a beautiful location. Also the hookups are strangely situated. The sewer required we run 22 foot hose under our motorhome as well as water and electricity. Luckily I had extension for sewer or else we would have been screwed. Many sites face the water while others face inward. Location includes docking for boats, BBQ grill, and shade trees. Clubhouse is just a small cabin with few DVD movies to sign out. We visited in a 43 foot rig and the park is not exactly big rig friendly but doable with assistance and multiple attempts. Cottages are available for those without RV. The management promises cable TV and never bothered to correct their ad. It is a boring place without any TV. We had satellite this time but most don't and they are charging as if they do. False advertising.
