Park is in good location and staff was nice, but this past September they had a flood and park was covered 3 ft of seawater. Price was a little steep and there was not many amenities...on top there was $3.00 charge for WiFi...pool was fine and brand new electric service. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

We ordered a premium site at $47 in hopes that it would accommodate our big rig. Apparently Encore campgrounds add a "fee" beyond the campground fee that, with taxes, brought the price to $55. So they advertise one price and by the time you get to checkout you will see that there is a site fee and a resort fee.

The roads were narrow but paved. There was a large tree limb over about a third of the road in one place that long term occupants told me has caused damage to several RVs. Our site was long enough but at 90 degrees to the narrow road and if the sites across the the street hadn't had the RV set way back and if they hadn't moved their trucks we would have never gotten into the site. As it was it took a lot of maneuvering over about 40 minutes to get in. It had rained the night before and many, if not most, of the sites around us were surrounded by water. I would not recommend this campground for big rigs and would suggest that at the prices they charge there would be many better choices for less or the same amount of money. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

It rained while we were here and our space flooded. Lot was rutted so badly we could hardly get out of the coach without falling. The only way that we found our spot was a fellow camper led us to it. Ask for a guide to take you to your site. Roads are narrow and full of potholes. Staff were friendly enough. We would stay again if overnighting, but not for extended stay. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

Arrived here to meet the Asst. Manager. We were told our site number. Went to site; it had standing water in it. When we asked her if we could get a different one we were told we could get the "Upgraded one" I guess that means the dry one? Of course it was $10 more. She seems to dislike the campers who stay here. Campgrounds are about the people you meet there and the campers here felt that management was at war with them. Pool was out the whole weekend we were there. Hot tub also was out. The parks only redeeming feature is a boat ramp with access to river.

Many of the sites are broken concrete and full of needles and grass. The place hasn't seen a rake in a while.

Staff was sweet to us and listened to us harp. She seemed powerless due to management.



Bathrooms were spotless! Power was good. WiFi ok, but pay for use. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Assistant manager maybe? was very rude to my wife. They charge extra to be on a green soupy garbage filled mess (Lake ??). Mud hole at dumpsters be careful you could get stuck. Mold in dirty pool all over sides and bottom. Prices that vary per person.Many sites turn to small ponds when it rains.

Crumbling infrastructure of an old park electric and water outages. Road crumbling many large potholes. Small lots that can't fit camper boat and truck and very little overflow parking.

Pros were clean Bathrooms Who ever cleans these works like a champ! Access to river and boat ramp. Annual campers that help you back into skinny lots and show you dark areas that flood. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

We camped here for two nights in Feb 2015. The weather was quite cold so we didn't use any of the outdoor amenities. From the looks of things, access to the waterway was very convenient. Bathroom was very clean, just a little old. Although there were many campers, Did not have to wait to use showers. Would go here again. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

Older park. Office desk lady was indifferent. Overcharged more than we were quoted at reservation time. She didn't want to help. Rained on next to last day, our site flooded so left day early. She said would not give refund. Site had an old rotten table. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The price is averaged from our month stay. The park is OK, with fairly level cement and gravel sites. Wi-Fi is available but is not free. We were on the side next to a small canal with a tiny private dock so if you have a boat you might like it better but the canal faces houses so is not very pretty. Our site fit our 40' motorhome just fine but many of the sites wouldn't work for that size. There is a large dock in the park with a fish-cleaning station that can smell really bad and a lot of vultures hang out to feast. There are many lots that people pay to keep year-round and when the couple next to us arrived the guy actually yelled at us for having our sewer hose on the ground next to our coach because he said he paid for everything past our cement pad. People just did not seem friendly at all. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

Booked site 4 months in advance. Knew we had an off water/canal site but that was OK. Site was level, power good & cable good. Now for the cons - there are many long term monthly/seasonal campsites and that would have been OK but they do not enforce the rules with them. They all do whatever they want & park where ever they want. The "electrician" played music so loud from his campsite we heard it 3 rows away. Owners needs to give some serious attention to rule enforcement in this park. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

This was more of a campground for locals to set up semi-permanent RVs for fishing than a resort type CG. July is scallop season so it was crowded. We would not go back and wish we had read reviews before purchasing a week from Encore Resorts sales folks at an FMCA event. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

Loved this RV Resort! Stayed here for two months with my husband's job and fell in love with the park and the people in it. Made many good friends and plan to go back when we're able. Office clerks were wonderful, helpful and friendly. Grounds are well kept along with laundromat and restrooms. Great park with lots to do! We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The girls at the office were very nice and helpful. The park was not very full at the time so we were given a nice site that was paved. It rained in the evening, so many of the sites in our area were flooded. Be prepared for the no-seeums! We received a list of the rules and guidelines, but they are not followed or enforced at all. The site next to us was occupied by a permanent resident who was obviously a hoarder. There was trash all over the site--at least 30 plants in pots, many empty pots, 4 large plastic bins sitting all over, picnic table piled high with stuff and lots more behind the camper. The pets were not kept on leashes. This was not the only site like this. The trash dumpster smelled so bad of dead fish or animals that you could smell it for 2 blocks. This could be a nice park, but many things are badly in need of repair. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here through Coast to Coast. Sites are large, some need work, some are great. Ours had lots of room, with pond in rear and space on each side. This is an older park but the restrooms are well kept and quite clean. I would stay here again as the amenities are nice and the area is very interesting. Nice pool, one tennis court in good shape, hot tub not working. We camped at Crystal Isles Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly staff, helpful. Tight back ins, but full service, including good free cable. Wi-Fi is cheap, $3 for 2 users for 24 hours. We played tennis and swam in a nice pool. We here before the large group of snowbirds are coming through, so we had lots of space. We kayaked with Manatees nearby, so bring your boats/kayaks, lots of water around. We will return.
