This is a pretty nice park, clean and neat with good hookups. The roads and sites are stone, and level, and each has a wood deck. They advertise Wi-Fi but it went out a while ago and apparently there are no plans to repair it, so if you depend on internet access for banking, etc., you'd better bring your own with you. There are no pull-through sites for overnight stays, and this is more of a long-term park. There is a "clubhouse" available, which is actually a small ranch style home with a couple of washing machines and a single bath tub and toilet, but no shower facilities. This is a pretty nice park, but would get a much higher rating if they had Wi-Fi, cable TV, and a restroom/shower building. - wetsuitwarrier
This is an exceptionally nice park that has concrete roads and pads with lots of trees and wide spaces in a park-like setting. It's not like most campgrounds which are lined up in a row, close together. Verizon cell worked great. The park's Wi-Fi was Ok; the owner's has plans to upgrade it. We planned to stay for 6 weeks and ended up staying 3 1/2 months and plan to return next winter. This park is so quiet and peaceful, we really didn't want to leave at all. It's a short drive to Foley or Fairhope where there are lots of stores and restaurants. It's a new park with one section done and two sections to be finished. This park is a work in progress that is very nice now and will be great when done. - Tim M.
I must say the previous post almost scared us away from this gem in the country. Yes, I will agree the person answering the phone needs to keep it on their person but she was very friendly and helpful and accurate with directions to the park.This resort once the new expressway gets finished will be very convenient. The park is immaculately kept. Sites are spacious and all utilities are up to par. If they proceed with future planning this will be an exceptional resort. As for fire rings and picnic tables I believe it would take away from the looks. I would definitely come back for a longer stay. The rate reflects a Passport America and Good Sam discount. - Colette
This is by no means a resort. No picnic tables, no fire rings, no pool, no playground, no specified dog area, and the biggest no is there is no one in the office. I should also note that the paved cement road and pads are a bit tight and should have been made wider. When we arrived other campers came out to help. I was waiting for something in the mail and had to rely on another camper to get the package for me. Other reviews here are 10's because, in talking to folks, the snowbirds just put up with the inconveniences because the park has a nice feel, and other RV'ers are pretty friendly, and they don't want to make it sound bad. The owners live about half a mile down the road. The woman who takes your reservation came into the office twice while here for about 2 hours during our week's stay. We will not come back, and others have told me the same. The park has potential but needs to be fixed up properly, and again the office needs to be staffed. We used Passport America for our average weekly rate. - rv4rob
Pros: huge lots, live oak trees @ every site, management pretty much lets you do whatever, canopies, dog pens OK, in country yet close to a Dollar General & convenience stores.
Cons: VERY cliquey, office staff not well informed in how to operate computer software, outside staff not at all friendly.
Gun shots ALL AROUND campground some automatic & very large caliber (very unnerving since you don't know which direction the person is shooting in). Crop dusters flying (buzzing) from daylight to dark. Kinda neat at first but gets real old listening to it. - Retiredandlovinit
Rate includes $2 per night for 50 amp service and is the rate for Escapees. Wide, long grass sites. Quite level, but puddled after rain. Great staff and residents. We were immediately welcomed into the fold. New Years pool plunge--49 degree water. Went into the 'teens several nights so I could see why the pool was closed. There was always something going on, and you were made welcome. Excellent location - Gulf Shore, Foley, Mobile all close. Will definitely return. We were there fo three weeks. - northern ranger
WOW, this campground is a dream. The sites are wide and long. We were joking that we expected someone to come between us and our neighbor- but no. We had a shaded site. The sites are on grass so I could see after a heavy rain that there would be puddles. The roads are paved and wide so easy in. They only have back in sites, but no problem backing in since the sites are so wide and long. So many activities and there is a community feel here. At the socials, they ask if there are new people, if people are leaving. You get greeted by so many people saying hello and welcome. The folks leaving get a fond farewell. The location is very countryside. But, its not far from the Gulf Shore, Fairhope and Foley (there is this huge boardwalk there). Good cellphone connection. No cable, but we got all the major networks and some more on the antennae. The wi-fi was OK and you have to pay. But we find that so in most campgrounds. Wi-FI is slow. Unless you are seasonal and get an individual box- it will be slow in most places. Everyone is so friendly. People just stopping by to chat. We had these people who invited us to breakfast before knowing our names. So nice. There is a separate section of private homes that are part of the campground. But they aren't park homes, they are regular houses. Some of the properties have motor homes and trailers that are under "barns" are they call them. But, they are decorated. All the properties are well kept. The only draw back was that the pool isn't open until May. Its too cold there in the winter to open it. But, when we got there it was warm enough, but that's when they open the pool. Also, no tables at the sites. I think if they had tables, I'd give this place a 10. The rate reflects Escapees (we had a 50 amp site so its $3 extra. By the way, they will be converting all the sites to 50 AMP so I guess that $18 for Escapees will be the rate for all sites). If in the area, I'd come back. - c+j p 5rvers
