Pulling up at this resort felt like pulling into a maximum security prison! The fence and guard were quite intimidating! Once inside though we were met with randomly accommodating staff. There are a lot of them, and they were pleasant enough, but wouldn't call them "friendly." There are lots of facilities/activities outside, but the "library" left a lot to be desired as there were no games and few books. Nice shower facility, huge laundry facility, and nice looking cabins. Liked the "chuckwagon" but didn't try the food. The office seemed to have just about anything you could need for a couple day stay. Dislikes: The feeling of strict rules including No visitors without a fee! I kind of understand because there are several "free" activities, but the stringency with which this rule was discussed felt like just too much! Also, didn't like the fact there were no planned activities. You are on your own to enjoy the outdoor facilities. If you want a planned card game or a movie night or something you are pretty much on your own! Probably wouldn't stay here again as it seems to cater to families and is far from anywhere. But for two nights it was more than adequate.

This was our first park on our first trip in our first motorhome so I don't have anything to compare to except my extensive worldwide travel by car, boat and air. However, I feel I am objective and honest and can write a review you can bank on!: We were at the park for 5 days during what must be the off-season in this area, however the park was full most of the time so "off-season" may be slightly less than accurate. With that said, and with some consideration given for the fact that parks must have some down-time for things like maintenance and cleaning, I have to say that if I had paid full-price (or high season price as the case may be), I would be disappointed in this property based on this particular stay. The property entrance is not well lit and arriving at dusk we almost missed it; something that would have been extremely disappointing in a 42' rig with a dinghy that can not back up and has a very large turning radius! Another factor that made our first impression somewhat less than stellar was the fact that the signage to the office is almost non-existent (in fact during our stay we noticed several people wandering around looking for where to check in!). We were given a site that was "as close to the beach as possible" and "on the end" as I had requested when I made the reservation. I was disappointed to find however that the beach access was across a "highway" and more than 400 yards away so while I did enjoy the extra lawn space, I was not impressed with the fact than no one told me how far away the beach was! Site 106. Another issue that I was told was due to the particular site we were in was that I was unable to connect to the WIFI more than 75% of the time! It was frankly annoying and while I asked more than once for assistance the standard answer was either "it's working fine" or "that spot can be a dead zone". I had to work while on the road and ended up using my phone when what I really needed was my laptop! The facility has some nice amenities such as the "spa" and clean bathrooms, but the mini-golf course was a mess, the outdoor chess set was in shambles, the pools were filthy, and I observed more cigarette butts than I care to describe! Staff was pleasant enough but did not appear very knowledgeable, particularly about things to do in the area or more mundane things such as finding a tow-truck that someone who is staying here more than a day or two might need to know! Overall based on my years of traveling worldwide I would give this park a 3 out of 5. I might come back, but I believe I would look at other options first.
