Rate is based on a weekly rate, 30amp with daily Honey Wagon service. We stayed here for the first 2 weeks in August. The park is very deep. The front part (A row where we stayed) is across from the pool and directly across the street from a row of tent sites that backed up to the pool. Roads were paved, wide enough. Sites are in the grass and pretty level for the most part. Not much room between sites and no shade. Park staff very helpful. We were a little concerned that our site location did not have sewers, they have one area that does - the coveted S row. But they showed up every morning to empty our tanks, no personal involvement necessary.
A Row things that drove us nuts: 1. Wifi: AT&T does not serve this area of Maine well so our cell and digital signal via phones, were 1 bar 4G IF lucky. They do offer wifi, and the signal was strong, but not reliable. I have a Verizon mifi and that worked great, 3 bars 4G. 2. We backed up to a line of tall trees and thick bush which killed any change of getting all but 2 channels on our digital antenna. I do not have satellite so cannot speak to the southern sky reception. 3. Lots of families at this park (summer break) and the pool was almost always hopping with loud, screaming kids. Plus they have a diving board, so we got to hear the bounce of that things for 2 weeks straight! 4. The free bus service loops through the A row and drove right by our rig every 30 minutes, sometimes every 10 to 15 minutes, starting at 8:30 a.m. til 10-ish each night, 7 days a week.
While in Bar Harbor we saw other RV parks and would look into those for the reasons stated above before staying here again. Not a bad place, just a bad personal experience. My advice, do not let them put you in the A row! We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Motorhome.
Bring your own Verizon service - AT&T does not cut it here. Do not stay in the A row. Do not count on antenna reception for TV.

The park was easy to find and enter/exit. They have a security gate with good reason. The neighborhood is run down and in a bad part of town. The park is narrow and deep and all gravel (I felt bad for my dog having to walk on it). A railroad switching area is in the back but besides an occasional bang when the cars hook up the noise was minimal. A motel borders one side and a large building borders the other side. On the bright side, the park managers are great. Gave us lots of good info on the French Quarter, restaurants, parking tips, etc. If you have a dog make sure you have plenty of flea protection (we were there in March 2015). Also, bring a 3x5 rug or step as they do not permit large area outdoor rugs to cover the green stuff (I would not call it grass). Watch out for doggie land minds as people, at least the ones who stayed before us, have a tendency let their dogs go behind their RV - instead of walking them to the front of the park where a small grass oasis is. You would not go there for the park, but we liked that it is pretty close to New Orleans. I would go again. We camped at Jude Travel Park in a Motorhome.
We tried a deli/grocery store within walking distance and found good food at a great price (take out).

Located close to the Gulf coast just down the street from quaint Dunedin FL this park was convenient to major shopping. It left us with a warm, homey feeling. You can tell there are lots of long term folks who live here and some of the mobile homes and RVs look quite run down (that's the sad part). The park itself is maintained and has a little lake with water birds and a resident swan. We had a spot right on the lake in the mornings we often could hear seagulls! I felt like we were on the beach at times, that was cool. No cable, even though the connectors are there. We use an electric powered antenna and the TV channels available were hard to get. Bring your own MiFi too because, as with many parks, the "free Wifi" is well, you get what you pay for. The rate was with our Escapees Discount. I would stay here again. We stayed for four nights. We camped at Sherwood Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.
