This is a beautiful park with very friendly people. We spent two nights here while evacuating from hurricane Irma. Our site was on Lake Osprey and was lovely except for the lack of vegetation. The utilities were well placed and great. The site was concrete. There were many cable channels, but they were grainy. The wifi was fair. This campground is out in the country and is very quiet. The tradeoff is that there is nothing nearby. I would definitely stay again. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wonderful resort with all the amenities including free laundry! Had a lot of rain and there appears to be very slow drainage in the grass areas; however, there is enough concrete to stay off the grass unless you have a dog to walk! Wish the sites were a bit wider too accommodate a curb side slide and our chairs more comfortably. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A must visit is the Elberta grocery store's meat counter. Excellent product and selection. And of course the Sweet Home Farm to meet the delightful owners and enjoy their out of this world home made cheese. Also a trip to Pirate's cove for a Bushwhacker and a burger is a must do. Close to the beaches without all the hassle. There is a golf course right next door if you are so inclined!

This is a beautiful RV resort close to Gulf Shores. We booked a week because the weekly rate was lower but extended it for an extra 3 nights because we enjoyed it so much. We also "got stuck" getting back home because of hurricane Matthew and the office staff penciled us in for an extra 5 days just to give us some wiggle room to let the hurricane pass. Interior roads are all paved. Sites are concrete. There aren't any picnic tables or fire rings which didn't bother us at all. It is unfortunate that the only Publix is 15 miles away, but we can live with that for such a beautiful spot. Our site faced one of the lakes so we could enjoy sitting outside in the evenings. They have 3 new pickle ball courts and we enjoyed playing with the folks there. We usually end up traveling I-10 on our way home from summer trips so we will definitely return. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

There are so many great fish restaurants in the area. We "pigged out" on oysters several nights. Try the Original Oyster House and The Steamer & Baked Oyster Bar.

This is a Resort style campground for adults, although children are welcome. The resort offered free laundry and a full exercise room along with a heated pool with hot tub for guest. The staff is very friendly and will go out of their way in helping you if needed.
The sites are long and level with full hook-ups with a cement pad. This rate reflects a monthly rate with electrical usage which could vary depending on day time temps. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved this park. We kept extending our stay because we did not want to leave. Close enough to the beach. Guests were great, staff was great, park was great. Long back in, concrete sites and beautiful. Not a bad site in this park. You cannot go wrong with an RV resort this great!!! We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our third stay at Lake Ospry. They were bought out by Robert's Resorts & have added 2 more sections & other improvements. Free washer & dryer. New free fitness center (very nice). WiFi worked very well as did Cable TV. Not crowded as this is their slow time. Pads are 75' x 16' with plenty of space between pads. Only about 15 minutes from the beach if that is what you are looking for. No golf cart parades or loud music. Quiet & everything works is what we look for & they have it. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful campground. It is an ownership type campground and they are building small houses on some of the sites. The grounds are almost perfect with a great area to walk and a little lake for canoes and kayaks.

The pool and hot tub have brand new tables and chairs, enough for at least 50 people if not more. The clubhouse is excellent and they even have a tiki hut for your use. They are building another room next to the washer dryer area which is provide for free, you just have to sign up for a time slot. There is a putting green and pickle ball courts.
Overall a very nice campground with the exception of the WiFi which they said they are upgrading.
We would definitely visit again. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

First the good, the park is nice, well manicured sites and a lot to do. Sites are close, open, with concrete pad. This is a pretty park however park management makes this a place we won't return. They refused to honor the price that was sent in the confirmation email and were quite rude about it. We did not feel welcome and would not return here. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lake Osprey, manager at Lake Osprey RV Resort responded to this review

Sorry to hear that you were sent an incorrect rate in the e-mail response that our reservationist sent you. The price was not and is not an advertised rate in any of our literature or in our computer system. The rate sent to you was a human error. Our reservationist did not see the incorrect rate before she sent you the response. She did not have the authority to agree to honor that rate or change the current rate in our reservation system so she turned your call over to our manager. He was attempting to resolve the problem with you and was of the opinion that the difference was so minuscule that it wasn’t really an issue at all and was in the process of giving you that rate, but you ended the call abruptly and he was unable to finish the conversation with you. We attempt to always resolve the issues that come to us with an amicable resolution.

The park is pleasant with virtually no noise. It is quite rural so driving is needed to get to shopping or anything. There are a few palm trees throughout the park but no shade trees. The roads are paved and the RV pads are concrete with maintained grass between sites. The sites are wide concrete pads for the RV but does not leave much space for chairs or table. This is an ownership park, so the sites are for sale. The park is only a few years old, so everything is new and well maintained. Washing vehicles is allowed.

Typical 20/30/50 electric. No picnic table or fire pit. Water quality is good, but use a charcoal filter for the chlorine. Pressure is about 60psi. The park provides cable with channels from their DirecTv system.

Wifi is free and quite fast when working, about 15 mbps, but internet connection is not reliable, which is most of the time. It is maintained by a separate company that can't seem to keep it working. We assumed that because the sites could be individually owned that telephone or cable was available so you could have your own internet service. This is not the case. T-Mobile hotspot did not work here.

There is a small laundry room with 4 sets of front load machines. Use is free but you need to sign up for a 2 hour time slot. The machines were always busy.

There is a nice size pool with a hot tub, but it was too cold to use during our stay.

The staff is very pleasant and helpful, and they are also frustrated with internet performance. There is a monthly activity list that is also provided on a weekly list that gives more info about each event.

Monthly rates do not include electric which works out to about 13.5¢ per kw; rather pricey. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Beautiful lake and grounds. Free laundry has 4 washers and 4 dryers and they have a signup sheet to reserve 2-hr time slots to use them--works great! Lots of activities. Everyone is SO FRIENDLY and helpful--makes you feel like family. BEST WiFi I have ever had at an RV Park. Very accommodating on reservations. They have DirecTV access instead of just cable.

We were VERY disappointed that the golf course next door doesn't give good rates for Park Residents but see comments under attractions.

Glen Lakes Golf Course has 27-holes and worked with us nicely for a good rate to play golf and isn't far away. Also park office has coupon for range balls there. If you are retired/active military, you can also golf the 27-hole course at Pensacola NAS just 20+ miles away for reasonable price.

MUST visit the Pensacola Naval Air Station Air Museum. Fantastic and you do not have to be military to enter base to see the museum. Just register at the gate. Can also visit the Pensacola Lighthouse on base. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is clearly the BEST and the #1 Park in America. It is quiet, big sites and the cleanest you will ever see. Plus, it does not allow trailers, older coaches or older 5th wheels, only newer units allowed, no children, no dogs above 20 pounds and all dogs have to be on a leash at all times. no outside racket or music. This is a park for people that like quality, clean and quiet environment. #1 BEST Park. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Plenty of shopping in Pensacola FL, or Foley AL, both are close and there is everything you need in both area's. Great grocery store in Elberta (just a few miles from park) where they have a wonderful butcher shop and hand cut all the beef and it is some of the best you will find, they have great steaks!

Nice people, great facilities. Lots of organized activities. Would be hard to find fault with the facilities. Would recommend to anyone with a high-line Motorhome or 5th wheel as they do have a 10-year old coach limit.

Lot spacing was spacious with sunny/open exposure. Site surface is a concrete pad. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Thank-you for your supportive review. We appreciate your understanding regarding our internet failure. We are sorry for the major inconvenience it caused you and so many others. Regretfully the network we recently up-graded failed us. We had gone with local tech, and local network company. We are now contracting Tengo net install their new "Smart Network" which can handle the 100mbs of fiber optics cable that we had invested in to bring great user end experience. Hope you come back and re-experience the new internet service we will be providing.

New ownership park. Where you park to check in is not really logical, but it works. The only negative was our site was a back in and that's a pain for one night, but the full hook ups worked well. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Thanks for stopping in. We have beautiful 70' long concrete pads and great new pedestals to hook to: however we do not have pull thru's. We are a Gulf Coast Destination Location. We are off the beaten path. Glad you found us and were able to enjoy our Resort for one night. Next time please come and stay longer. We have great amenities and events. Safe travels and thanks for the review.

This is a really great resort. It is in the country so it is very peaceful, yet, not too far away from the touristy things if you so choose to do that. The pads are concrete, level and spacious. Hosts were very nice and helpful to us. Our tow dolly got stuck and they tried to help, and then came back to check on us. The resort is clean and beautifully landscaped. We would most definitely stay here again. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.
