Rate shown is the weekend Good Sam rate. Passport America rate is offered on weeknights at this writing. We had mixed feelings about the facility. There is an old section and a much larger new section. We stayed in the new section on a concrete site. The older section did not appear well kept and had a number of 'permanents'. The newer concrete sites have an annoying curb on the driver side. It appears designed to protect the sewer connection (two per site) but the curb can be inconvenient depending on a rig's hookup configuration as well as a tripping hazard. The slabs are probably 10' wide. When steps are deployed, you will be on grass or pieces of flagstone. Picnic benches are fixed on a single pedestal. Great for easier lawn maintenance but likely to be in full sun. After paying for our site, we were handed a flyer that said cable was not available due to a service dispute (digital conversion) with the cable company. Don't know if that's a short or long term problem. I think they should be advising people of that issue before collecting payment. OTA reception of the major network stations is satisfactory. Wifi was spotty despite several antennas around the park. Though I could get a good signal, Internet access was often not available. I resorted to our Mifi card instead. Lots of locals seemed to be using the pool and playground on Saturday. Staff was friendly and competent.

Rate shown is Good Sam rate for peak season. Their summer rate is slightly less. This is an older park that civilization has now surrounded. A six lane highway (Gandy Blvd) is on the park's north perimeter. I would recommend avoiding sites 555 thru 572 that back up to the highway unless you enjoy traffic noise at all hours. A large section of the park is devoted to well-kept park model homes. Most of the RV sites are 90 degree back-ins and a little tight for large towables. There are a few pull-thrus that can accommodate larger rigs. Staff is friendly. Park is convenient to most parts of the Tampa Bay area. No cable in the section we stay in and trees can interfere with satellite reception. However, OTA reception is excellent. We have stayed here several times and will again in the future.
