Grant it, this place is very well maintained. We were looking to buy property in Alabama to build a "Port Home" on. There are only so many places that have started this concept in RV communities. We stayed here for three nights and looked at several sites they had to offer. (Now please note, they advertise properties starting at $60,000. that's a false statement. When we were there in June of 2018, there were none available at that price.) We made offers on various properties. Then our final offer on a property ($93,500) got accepted. We signed the papers and started the drive back to Texas. Just outside of Dallas I received an email with the closing paperwork signed by the owner, they were trying to hit us with commission for the realtor, roughly another $5000). We opted out. Buyers do not pay realtor fees. They said it was a mistake but my gut says it wasn't. They said they would send me back my check. But then they cashed it 3 days later. I called the title company and they said they would mail me a check. My opinion: Let the buyer beware. Oh, and read the CCR's. Really read them. We are still waiting for our earnest money. Honest I think not. Let the buyer beware. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects monthly rate. Nice clean park with cement pads and lots of room between sites. The lakeside sites are pretty much all set up for motorhomes to pull in. They do have a tugger to pull your 5th wheel in if you so desire but we decided to back in as we wanted the lake view. We had enough electrical cord and water hose to run around the outside of the pad and the sewer we ran under the trailer and just hooked it up when ever the tanks needed dumping. Expensive nightly and weekly rates as we decided to stay an extra 6 nights after our month was up and were charged $400.00. The clubhouse is nice as is the pool and hot tub. Washers and dryers are free but you must book a time for them. One thing I wasn't aware of (and wasn't pleased with) was that we were charged for power (normal for monthly stays) but weren't told of all the extra costs. My $58.00 bill turned into a $101.00 so be prepared. No picnic tables either. Overall a nice park with friendly people and lots to do but probably wouldn't stay her again. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here a month in a 42 foot 5th wheel on a beautiful concrete pad that was level, wide and long. The folks in this park went out of their way to make you feel special and were very hospitable. The park has a slew of amenities and all are very nice. The WiFi, cable and utilities were all excellent. Nice lawn that was irrigated also. The only negative would be no picnic table was available.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Elberta is small, but the town of Foley is large at only 12 miles away. Florida line is 10 miles away and Pensacola another 10 miles. The U.S. Navy base is awesome for their Naval Aviation Museum. The base is the home of the Blue Angels and their practice air shows are excellent to attend. The Gulf State Park is in Orange Beach, AL and has excellent paved, bike paths.

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!

Okay get this, Lake Osprey is the all-around B-E-S-T Resort we have ever seen, this is the true model for a top quality RESORT to be modeled after. You will never see a nicer resort than this! We have been in every state and this one is the nicest, cleanest, and highest quality we have found. We love the fact that no trailers are allowed and only new 5th wheels are allowed, it is basically a CLASS A ONLY RESORT and it is wonderful. They do not allow big dogs, only dogs 15 pounds or less and no one can have but 2 dogs - no more. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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 stayed here before the RV resort was sold when it had only 23 sites. Now it has been expanded with a lot more sites, all either on the lake or with a Great Lake view. Big paved sites, beautiful pool and hot tub on lake. All employees were great. Had activities for guests, free wash room, exercise room, ice and bottled water. Golf course is right behind resort. We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Lake Osprey RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Close to Pensacola FL, we went to the Airforce Blue Angels practice. It is about 20 minutes to Foley and 25 to the gulf/beaches. Worth the short drive for what you get at the campground.
