As others have said, it is a lovely setting. The RV sites all face the small pond that is the central feature of the campground. We stayed in site 7. This is the first time we have not been able to get level in over a year. We got close enough to live with it, but not level. The owners said that more gravel to address the problem "is on the list", but he seemed vague about when that would be done. There are about 10 RV sites in the campground, the rest are tent sites. More road noise than I expected. Highway 74 is a busy road. WIFI is erratic. When I could get signed in it was good, but getting a connection was frustrating at times. No AT&T at all; owners said Verizon works. No cable.

On lake shore. Site A7 (I think - it backed up to power line) $30/night. Sit was spacious, partially shaded. Barely able to get level, but finally did. Power line made great dog walk. Trails in woods also good dog walking. Park is clean and attractive. Be sure you talk to them if you have a big rig. It would be a challenge to get into some areas. Most sites in the park are owned and have park models and trailers semi-permanently installed. Limited number of rental sites. No cable, no WIFI, adequate OTA reception, good AT&T. Pretty remote from shopping. Heavy train activity all night. No road noise at all. Nice pool, small beach on the lake. Dated but clean showers; small laundry looked OK but we didn't use it. Roads are mostly gravel and fairly narrow with some ruts. It looks like the drainage is being worked on and is overdue.

Many long term residents tend to give the park a somewhat seedy appearance. Although clean, many of the long term sites are pretty cluttered and some of the RVs are clearly unmovable. Our pull-through site was certainly long enough for our large coach but privacy was limited because it was narrow. Luckily we didn't have a neighbor on the curb side. No formal dog park but there is a walking trail through the woods around the pond that they enjoyed and walking throughout the park was permitted. We chose Lake Aire as a base to tour Charleston, but the traffic on RT 17 is pretty awful, especially during commuting times.

We stayed three days in site 9 in a 43' motorhome. New owners have clearly invested a lot of money. The sites are all freshly graveled and pretty level. The sites range from generous to huge. All of the facilities are new or renovated. Wi-Fi worked well enough for email, cable worked but with somewhat limited channel selection. The pool was just relined. The park manager and the work campers were friendly, competent and very service oriented. Lots of room to walk the dogs in the large green spaces bordering the park. Short walking trails are laid out in the woods surrounding the park, but we found several ticks on us and the dogs after one walk.

One of the nicest places we have stayed. As one reviewer noted, there are several sections on the park. We were in the Premium section around the pond near the office. I would guess that these are the newest sites, very spacious with big concrete pads, concrete patios, no shade and lots of lawn. It had a new laundry and bath house too. The other sections are more rustic, with gravel pads and lots of shade. All roads are paved an easy to maneuver. We stayed 2 nights, just long enough to visit the Kennedy Space Center. If we decide to stay longer the next time we are in this area we will ask for a rustic site to get trees and shade. All sites have FHU, 5o amp and cable. While there is no fenced dog run, there are several large grassy areas and a nature trail where they are welcome. I'd give it a 10 if the WIFI worked. It didn't and we were right across the driveway from the repeater. AT&T cell data worked fine.

Passport America use restricts site selection to the back-in section that doesn't have sewer connections. Absent PA, this place is too expensive. The sites in this area are very close together. 4 sites share a utility connection point so it is on the wrong side for two users and requires running long power cables and hose. It does have good cable TV. No WIFI, but AT&T data worked fine. The showers were clean but really need updating, and had no amenities at all: no soap dish, stool, even no clothes hooks. The original site we were given was unusable because neighbors had encroached. Several sites were open so we moved. Management was certainly helpful, but the place really needs an escort service to insure that incoming campers set up correctly. Given how tight the spaces are, conflicts must be frequent. The site was too narrow to get our big awning out, but it was so windy that we wouldn't have used it anyway. I had to trim a couple of limbs to clear the slides. Our mirrors hung over the end of the site which was supposed to accommodate 45'. The park has three large tent camping sections that were very busy, a small marina where boats on trailers were coming and going and a small restaurant and bar. All together a very busy place on the weekend: lots of kids riding bikes, radios, grills going, family groups , etc. That all said, the setting is spectacular, with panoramic views of the ocean complete with gorgeous sunsets. Our site was one row back from the waterfront sites and we had water views.

Nice park. No discounts offered, but price is very attractive for this area. The roads are a little tight and the sites are too, but we got our 43' coach into site A15 without any drama. All concrete pads, lots of grass. Nice pool. The park is very well maintained. No cable, no WIFI, good OTA reception, strong AT&T data. Lots of room to walk dogs but no formal fenced dog run. Most sites contained the rigs of permanent seasonal renters and full time residents. In mid-April most of the seasonal folks had already departed. Everyone we met was very friendly and spoke glowingly about the park and all the activities in season.

We stayed two weeks, using Passport America for the first one and paying the weekly rate of $285 for the second. The rate shown is the Passport rate, which is effective beginning April 1. Most of the sites are long term residents in park models. All of the sites are fairly large, but a couple are really big. Originally we were assigned site 112 but were able to move to site 40 after a few days. 112 was unshaded, wet and muddy, and we were looking at the side of our neighbor's park model. Site 40 is the largest in the park, completely shaded and is staggered from the site on the left so much that we had no view of them. Marvelous. If that wasn't enough, it backs up to a large pond that is a perfect dog walk. Sites 28-41 all abut this pond and would be my choice if available. The pool is nice, and is popular with the kids. The laundry and showers are fine. The park is divided into pet and no-pet sections; the formal dog park is pretty small but serviceable. Clearwater is a city, so traffic noise is pretty constant. It is right on US 60, roughly 30 minutes to St. Petersburg and about the same to Tampa. Costco, Publix, Walmart, Best Buy, Marshalls, etc. are all within a couple of miles of the park. Trader Joe's and Total Wine are several miles south on the way to St. Pete. The park Wi-Fi is usable, OTA reception is outstanding but cable is not available for short term renters.

Cost includes metered electric because we were given a vacant lease holder's site. I don't think we would stay more than a night or two in the transient sites. Site was very spacious, nicely landscaped and fully paved. Escorted to the site and guided in. He would have helped hook up if I asked. Great pool, nice clubhouse with library and covered pation area. Wonderful people welcomed us and included us in evening social get together. The park ws built and is maintained by the lease holders and reflects real pride of ownership. It really does need a good dog park, though. AT&T worked well and we did get a few OTA channels. Zolfo Springs doesn't have much but Wauchula is well equipped with Walmart, Winn Dixie, etc.

The sites are spacious and fairly easy to get into from the right direction but the roads are a little tight for big rigs. No OTA reception, no WIFI. AT&T wasn't strong but good enough to communicate. The whole park seems to be suffering from benign neglect. The pool looks like it has been empty for years. The sites need gravel to mitigate mud puddles, and the electric and water hookups appear to be the original construction. Signs at the minimal dog park are hand lettered on cardboard and the fence needs repairing. There is a general air of "make do." That said, the setting is lovely. Lots of birds and other wildlife are around. We didn't see the resident alligator in the swamp that borders one side of the park but think we heard him at night. There is a small friendly donkey herd in an adjacent pasture that the dogs enjoyed. Bushnell is a pretty good sized town with Walmart, Winn Dixie, etc. Lots to do in the area, especially near Ocala.

The waterfront sites are pretty special, your bumper overhangs the water's edge but none were available so our site was near the main road. The sites are pretty close, our awning wouldn't clear the neighbors but I could have moved over a little if we had needed to use it. The roads and sites are a mix of gravel and crushed shell and could use scraping and new topping to mitigate muddy places when it rains, as it does frequently in this area. Some longterm residents who kept to themselves, and many snowbirds who come every year. No specific dog walk area, but when the tide was out we could walk north about a half mile on firm sand. The dogs really liked that. Good cable and adequate WIFI. AT&T data worked fine, too. Lots to see and do in this area, both along the coast and inland in Tate's Hell State Forest and Apalachicola National Forest. Minimal services in Carrabelle; Apalachicola is really nice.

Sites are all spacious with some shade, but are grass with some dirt so can get pretty messy in heavy rain. Roads are very wide, access to the sites is easy. All are backin. Part of park is only 30 amp. The park is a mix of houses, longterm leased lots and rv sites. The facilities and the park are spotless. There are activites going on every day at the clubhouse and visitors are encouraged to join in. Be sure to go to happy hour. Very large fields adjacent to the developed area makes ideal dog walking but folks are a little casual about cleaning up. No WIFI or cable, but AT&T data worked fine and OTA reception was good. We look forward to returning for a longer visit.

This park is the ideal base for visiting New Orleans and the areas around it. The cost is also a bargain compared to the limited alternatives. It really is just 20 minutes to the French Quarter by car, or take an hour and use the Algiers Point ferry instead. Take time to explore the Algiers Point neighborhood, too. The sites are all spacious and paved. Grassy areas get pretty wet when it rains. Many sites have some shade. Laundry is free. Lots of families and kids. It gets busy on weekends, but most state parks do. It is secure and well patrolled. Airboat tours passing down the slough along the street side of the park are very noisy and run into the evening. No formal, fenced dog park.

Boy, we wanted to love this place but have to echo many of the comments of others. We are enthusiastic Escapees and plan to stay at as many Escapee parks as we can, as we travel around the country in a 43 foot rig, this year. This park is supposed to be the flagship, but it falls short. I think it is also expensive given what isn't included. It is badly in need of a major refresh. The landscaping is tired, the roads in the camping areas need attention and most of the sites need to be regraded and either paved or have fresh gravel put in. The park also needs cable TV and/or a strong WIFI system. Fire ant nests are everywhere and I saw no effort to control them. The dog park is very basic and uninviting. The park structural issues notwithstanding, we enjoyed the people, the clubhouse and the activities. Contrary to what one reviewer said, we had no trouble walking our dags anywhere, day or night, and the residents seemed very dog-friendly, too.

Newish park in south San Antonio, just 20 minutes to the Alamo and the Riverwalk. Large, spacious pull thru site, all concrete with a small grass strip. Great staff. Immaculately maintained. Good security. Outstanding showers. Good cable tv, easy access hi-pressure air line, pool, spa, fishing pond (not a lake). Lots of space to walk dogs, free dog wash station. Most of the park is filled with oil field workers and, in many cases, their kids. Each site seemed to have at least two large pickup trucks.
