The level back-in sites are very tight and getting around with our 40' was tricky. All utilities worked well but the free internet is only accessible at the office area. We enjoyed the activities and met some great campers. - dandg

This is a snowbird park with lots of activities every day. Texas hold'em poker a couple nights a week. This is 1 of the friendliest parks we have been in. Nice sites. Mail boxes available for those staying a month or more. We stayed for 2 months and really enjoyed ourselves. Mostly seniors in park. Weather was so nice so great getaway from the North! - User2277

I can't say that I agree with their web site when it says "A premier RV resort located in the heart of Florida", as it's actually quite a tired campground just off US 19, mostly occupied with old trailers and park homes. They DO keep it tidy though and it has a big recreation room with lots of activities over the winter season. The pool is small and quiet but suited me fine and the restrooms opposite my site/by the pool were okay and clean but very dated and worn. - Leo Millward

I have lived here for almost 4 years and have been an excellent tenant, paid my rent on time and even ahead of time, maintained my site and made it look very attractive with fencing, flowers, etc. I had given my notice that I was going to move about 6 weeks ago although I wasn't sure if my job up North was going to last so I'd like the opportunity to return within 5 or 6 months if it didn't work out. The manager of the park told me that it was "policy" that I could "reserve" my site until September for a nominal fee as many other residents have done in the past. I thought that was very agreeable and proceeded to move my RV to another resort closer to my job. This weekend I returned to move some of my other belongings and straighten up the site so it looked presentable when the Manager and the Park Maintenance man came to my site and told me that I was to vacate IMMEDIATELY or they would start "the eviction process" for NO REASON!! This truly is the straw that encouraged me to write this review. During the past 4 years as a great tenant, over and over again the Management has contradicted what they say verbally a few days or weeks prior and then make up their OWN RULES as they wish. If they want you to move because they have a "more desirable" tenant in mind or want the site for themselves, then they just find an "excuse" to have you move, evicted or shunned from the park. I just want others to know that this IS NOT A PARK I WOULD RECOMMEND for LONG TERM tenancy. I'm sure you would experience the same that I have if you choose to live here! - One VG Couple

Nice , quiet RV park. Sites weren't too bad compared to several that we saw. Staff was friendly and very visible throughout our stay. Pool was clean and warm. Hot tub was also on property but we didn't use it. Wi-Fi was available in hot spots up near the laundry and rec room. - Bompa1954

Very nice park. Owners extremely accommodating. We were able to get a spot at the height of their busy season. W/E/S easy to get to and worked beautifully. We were right across from pool and hot tub/spa. Our site was very long, but extremely narrow. Could not open our window awning on our LR slide without hitting neighbor. Could only open full awning if site next to us was empty. Less than 5 feet of walking space between sites. Nice laundry facilities, heated pool, spa, bocce courts, deck shuffleboard and paved roads for bike riding. Very convenient to shopping, attractions, beaches, restaurants. Except for proximity of sites, it's a nice park. Would stay again if just for a few nights. - usamacdonald2

This is not a luxury resort. They are a 9 in their class. Grass sites with concrete patio. Patio's need work in some sites. This is our third winter here and they are improving some sites each year. Staff is great. Realistically I can't think of any improvements other than the patio's that could be made. - Beas

I stayed here, because a resident referred me. The sites are all back-in sites. They are fairly close, but I am more used to State-Park type of room, so may be a little biased. If the neighboring sites are occupied and you aren't used to backing your rig, I'd suggest passing.
Backing in can be a problem, since the roads are not real wide and a lot of times someone owns the area across from where you are trying to get into. This means you can't count on using the extra space across from you to help straighten out. No matter what you are doing, you will likely be driving on the grass either beside or across from your site.
There is a mix of permanent, long-term, and transient campers here.
The staff is nice and the price is great for the area.
Pet campers are segregated from non-pets. I thought it kind of weird, but I saw this in many Florida campgrounds.
The property is fairly well kept, the bath-houses are clean, and the location allows for good access to area attractions, etc.
The sites were getting soggy (more rain than normal), but the management was pouring gravel in the sites, which needed it the most.
Would I stay here again? Maybe. - ben31rv

The park has a lot of full timers and office staff is rarely there for working people's hours.
Manager treats some residents with no respect.
Sites are very unlevel and electricity shuts down due to overload on a very old infrastructure along with only a row or two having 50 amps.
Asphalt is is need of replacement in pad areas and concrete patios are a trip hazard on most sites.
Ants and bugs along with limbs that need to trimmed are an everyday issue.
I have dealt with this park due to job locations for the past 3 years and it needs new management that has respect for park residents that pay the bills.
You have to rake and bag your own site.
If you get put in the field, it's overrun with stickers and ants.
Trash bins are overflowing most of the time. - sar1966

We have stayed here several times, over the years...usually during the off season, so the rates are less, and the park isn't crowded. This rate is the off season, monthly rate. The staff have always been very friendly, and accommodating. The recreation room, pool, laundry facilities, showers and bathrooms have always been clean, well maintained, and in excellent condition. All the sites we have used had picnic tables, concrete patios, and were level. The sites are fairly close together, but not so close as to be a problem. There is a large no smoking section, which is nice. We will be back. - cliffw42

Worst camp ground I have stayed at in the last 20 years. Site was so small, I could not fit between sewage hookup and concrete patio. I could not put out any of the slide-outs. Tree branches scratched the sides of the coach. Lots of branches rubbed roof too. No grass at all on the site. Young men on motorcycles driving around park most of the night. Lady in a 40 year old park model next to our site played music ALL NIGHT and load enough to hear it in our coach. we didn't sleep much so we just got up at 7 am and went home. - Mike And Jan

We found this site through Encore. Although we are not members, to call it a "resort" is too big a stretch. The sites are tight, with neighbors very close beside. The place did not have a "resort" look to it at all. After having no luck finding other places to stay in February, we took this one for 5 days. The park is on extremely busy Ulmerton Road in Largo. RVers approaching from the east should not count on being able to make a U-turn to get into the park on the south side of Ulmerton. Just west of the park, Ulmerton Road is under major reconstruction and the daily traffic jams are epic, to say the least. We stayed here to visit friends and see the sights in the area. The Pinellas bike trail from St. Pete all the way to Tarpon Springs (43 miles) was great fun and the Pinellas county parks were very nicely done. If we were to visit this area again, we'd likely look for another place to stay. - Jay Rutherford

RV section roads are rough. Low hanging branches. Park is old. Manager is trying to fix it up. There are a lot of working class and old people who live here year round. The people who live here year round are OK. They take over the pool and clubhouse on the weekends. Pool was greasy from suntan lotion. - Travelin' partners
Jan 2011 - $35.00
There wasn't much of an area for a dog walk, and other people didn't pick up after their pets. The sites are tight and close together, making it difficult to get into your site. Restrooms and laundry room could be cleaner! The Front office staff was nice but could be a little more personable and smile more. The lady who cleans, needs to deep clean more often! The pool was not working properly in the 3 months we were here. Long term people had to rake and bag there own leaves to have a nice yard. The trees are over grown, blocks satellite service. Disorganized reservations: when we arrived our site was taken by someone else, no one around to help us. - stonewood1

Sites are small, buildings are old & in need of replacing (not repair). Security is non-existent, with no weekend office hours. Pot holes can swallow an RV. More damage was done inside my RV driving in the park than in 6000 miles to South Dakota & back! - postaldaddy212

The new manager is fabulous! Park is quiet and everyone seems great. Close to everything! Halloween party tomorrow. Coffee and donuts every Thursday. Great group of residents! Safe, secure and very clean! Mins to the beach...and bike to causeway for fishing and sunset picnics. - Toby Beavers

This is not really a campground, but an older trailer park with permanent and seasonal residents. They have a few sites available for short term stays. It is a quiet park (sign says for over age 55). Most sites are nicely shaded by the oaks and mature landscaping. The gulf beach is 2.5 miles over the causeway. Manager was very friendly and helpful. There were 2 restrooms with shower (1 men, 1 women) - no paper products supplied; we had to bring our own toilet paper. There is a large laundry area and community room. No picnic tables on RV sites. It was fine for a night, but I wouldn't want to stay much longer. - On the Road again 11

The previous two reviewers pegged this park perfectly. It's small, the sites are tight and it's looking very old. But this friendly, little park is all about location. It's just a few minutes to the beach and, if you have a bike, you can ride a bike trail to the Blue Jays stadium in about 20 minutes. As a bonus it has excellent, free Wi-Fi, an open-air clubhouse and lots of friendly people. We'll be back. - Johnnyonthespot

Needed a place to stay while attending a class for a week. The rate reflects a weekly rate plus 1 night. This is mostly a 55+/snowbird place with some RV sites, but was in close proximity to my class. It is not a camping" place. By and large there are a lot more mobile homes or park models. Having said that, it served my purpose well and was a nice place to stay. It was very clean and quiet. It's right at the end of season, but it appeared like there were a lot of activities during the season. Check-in was friendly, easy, and efficient. There is a security gate, and the park is close to shopping/restaurants. Now...the RV sites. Our 50 amp/FHU pull-thru site wasn't really a pull-thru. If your rig will turn on a dime, you can pull straight through. We had to back in, but will be able to hook up the toad and "pull out". The sites are close together. The WiFi is only at the rec hall/office, otherwise you'll need to pay for Tengo if you don't have your own. The cable TV was awful, so we used our OTA. We were able to get plenty of channels. Our site was gravel, and we needed to place boards under the jacks to keep them from sinking. However, we had no trouble levelling. There is a nice dog park and also plenty of space to walk the dog. We would return if in the area and need a site. - Gayle E.

We stayed one week paying $278 weekly rate. The reservation process was easy. They collected 100% at time of reservation (certainly not my preference). The check-in process was efficient. We requested a pull-thru site at time of reservation and that's what we received. The pull-thru section is close to the busy hwy with plenty of noise from trucks, motorcycles, etc. The pull-thru sites are very close. We could not put out our awning. The rectangular spot to park your rig is rocky gravel while the area where you walk and park your tow car is dirt with dead/alive grass/straw which tracks into your rv. Putting out a mat will help but not completely. In hind sight (because we stayed a week rather than a couple of days), we would have preferred a back-in site "inside" the park (quieter, less dirt, more space). However, I can fully imagine some interior sites difficult to get in due to narrow roads. The facilities are clean. The dog park is very large. They have single-stream recycling which is great. The residents seem pleasant enough but keep to themselves. The surrounding neighborhood isn't the best. I would not run outside the complex by myself so I did loops inside the park (approx .65 mi per loop). About a quarter mile down the road, we witnessed a police altercation in broad daylight. An apparent druggie pushed a cop. The cop had the druggie face down and handcuffed in a nano second. It confirmed my instinct about the area. I should mention the park is gated and we saw nothing sketchy within. There is wifi at the common facilities but we didn't use it. No wifi offered at the site. Hook-ups worked well. We had good signal for Verizon cell, Sprint Mifi and DirecTV. My personal take - I didn't care for Largo and I didn't love the campground. If you stay long-term, it's probably a better experience. To me, there's a gazillion lovely (better) places in Florida to choose from. I won't be going back. - GottaGoNow

Beware! Made a reservation for a pull-thru site & after checking in & running my credit card for the balance due for a two night stay, I was informed that a pull thru site was not available & sites are not guaranteed by "Sun Resorts", and pull-thru sites were for large rigs only - our coach is 40 ft. The back in site we were given was not available due to a tree being removed, so we took a walk around the park & found a small van camper in a pull-thru site. Went back to the office & complained& basically was told too bad. When the back in site was finally available, it took us 20 minutes to get in the site. Our neighbor needed to move his car, because we had to drive over half his site to make the turn into our site because the road was so narrow. Also our neighbor across from us had to move her lawn ornaments. Tire tracks indicated this needs to be done all the time. If you are going to stay for the season, I guess this hassel may be worth it to you, the facilities looked ok, we didn't use any. But if you're only staying a few nights & want a pull-thru sites, stay somewhere else. This is a definite "bait & switch " operation. - TravelingBaggs

The park is an older one filled primarily with park model homes and maybe 40-50 spots for RVs. Only a few of the RV sites have 50 amp electric service. We were in a 30 amp site, and the voltage routinely dropped to 110 and occasionally even 105. The laundry has a sufficient number of machines; each at a cost of $1.50. The laundry building, like the office and meeting/events hall are old and could use a lot of updating. The park is managed by a father and son both of whom we felt were not as friendly as any of the hundreds of park owners and managers we have met in over 8 years of full timing. The park is next door to a shopping center with a grocery store and a lot of retail shops including a thrift store. There are a couple of restaurants as well so it is all very handy. We could walk through the back gate of the park and do grocery shopping easily. Before we made our reservation we asked if there was any prohibition against washing our coach and we were told that is not a problem. When we arrived we were given a copy of the park rules and there was indeed such a prohibition. There is a prohibition against using electric heaters of any kind. Do not ask the park to have their propane supplier stop by and fill your tank. We did and were charged $5.50/gal at a time when LP was being sold at Flying J for $3.50/gal. Bottom line is; the park is nice, safe and the people who live here or return every year as snowbirds are the only true asset. Management does nothing of value that we saw and this view was shared by others we talked with. Would we stay here again if ever in the area? No. Customer service and attitude is the worst we have ever experienced in 8 years on the road. - User422

We were looking for a place in St Petersburg to stay for my brother's wedding. This place served our needs perfectly. Reasonably priced, very clean, full hookups, and very pet friendly. Everyone was friendly, we enjoyed activities offered. We arrived after his IRS and we made a simple call and were greeted and escorted to our site. They were very helpful in assisting with hook ups and instructions for park. Water pressure was great. Showers very clean. Cement patios = less dirt drug in. Only downside for some may be no tv if short stay. We definitely will return. Thank you Roberts for a wonderful experience!!!!! - Jngdjg

Despite an issue upon check in (the site we were first directed to had a rather permanent looking trailer already on it) overall we found this park clean & quiet. We were fully expecting to hear a lot of shooting from the skeet range right next door (as mentioned on previous reviews) however we did not. Sandy soil made for difficult leveling, and the sewer outlet positioning (right under bus) was less convenient also. There are a lot of trees in the park, and whilst nice, they drop a lot of leaves & a lot of pollen so be wary regarding use of awnings etc. we used leaf blower right before our departure so that we weren't hauling any of this away with us in our awnings. Most of the park seems to be full time residents & permanent trailers, but they're really tidily kept. We found this a very convenient location to St Pete (20 mins). Walkable distance to target, Walmart groceries, pannera bread, etc. Quite a large laundry facility we did not use however, and a tennis court, small pool, horse shoe & boules court. The clubhouse seemed to offer a fair few activities too though we did not partake in any. - leemhicks

Rate shown is Good Sam rate for peak season. Their summer rate is slightly less. This is an older park that civilization has now surrounded. A six lane highway (Gandy Blvd) is on the park's north perimeter. I would recommend avoiding sites 555 thru 572 that back up to the highway unless you enjoy traffic noise at all hours. A large section of the park is devoted to well-kept park model homes. Most of the RV sites are 90 degree back-ins and a little tight for large towables. There are a few pull-thrus that can accommodate larger rigs. Staff is friendly. Park is convenient to most parts of the Tampa Bay area. No cable in the section we stay in and trees can interfere with satellite reception. However, OTA reception is excellent. We have stayed here several times and will again in the future. - halfdimes
