We spent several days here in February. It is not a fancy park but it was clean, quiet and everyone was very friendly. The sites were not huge but in southern FL not many places have mega sites. Lots of seasonals but most everyone seemed well kept giving the compact surroundings a reasonably pleasant look. Restaurant and store on the premises which was convenient. Other stores and restaurants within 1/2 mile. The marina was at far end of property and only occasionally did we hear the roar of the motors. Interior road was paved and some sites (probably seasonals) had concrete pads. About 1/2 hour drive to Marco Island/Naples area which was convenient. If I were looking to stay near the Everglades again, I would return for a few days stay. Again, not alot to do at the campground but not a bad base camp for the area. - jdkd
Great campground to view birds and wildlife in Big Cypress Nat'l Park. Sites are paved, and level with 50 amp service. - illini777
Other reviewers said there was not a camp host in the park, but when we got here, there was. So I believe the host arrives in early November staying through the winter season. Beautiful park with flat even sites; 50 amps and water is available in the park, just not at your site. The idea is to reserve ahead of time but we were able to come and pick a spot and pay for it with cash or check. There are envelopes available but you can also stop at the Big Cypress Visitors Center and reserve a spot with a credit card. We used a Federal Senior Pass for the $15 rate per night. - sherp108
Agree with the earlier reviews. A very nice park. Paved roads and parking. Cement patio with table and grill. Beautiful views of the lake. Sites can be difficult to back into without getting on the grass, since they are 90 degrees to the road. There was no one here when we arrived and only 1 other rig showed up. Never saw any Park Rangers or security of any kind, and nothing happened. Placed the form and a check in the tube by the entrance. Note to the management: it is hard to find this CG on this site. It doesn't show up on the map and is really no where near Everglades City. I came by here years ago and knew it was here but struggled to find it. GPS says it is at 52388-54004 Tamiami Trail, Ochopee Fl, 34141. 25.85089, -80.99015. - belgique
Overall we enjoyed our stay there and the hosts/mgrs. were outstanding. Good eating within walking dist. but no shopping to speak of, but grocery and hardware nearby.
Nice pool and clubhouse and well kept park overall. Everyone nice and we expected to go back in 2016, but when we recently called for reservation, we were informed that new policy only allows min. stay of 7 days & max. stay of 21 days., (confirmed on website) not real friendly towards renters as we were told they wanted to be an ownership park. Also were told the hosts/mgrs. were gone and not returning next year.
This is a very nice park except for bugs in the evenings and noisy air boats all day long, not to mention one of the lot owners loud music on the back row. They have been open since 2009? and only sold lots to 4 people. Lots very expensive for the area (noise & bugs) compared to similar resorts we have stayed in. - atraveler
The rate reflects the weekly rate in site #5 which is riverfront, but at the far end of the park, considered a less desirable area. This is our second stay here when we also stayed in site #5 and we felt this area was a hidden gem in the park. It is not as busy and although the airboats run most of the day, the noise is about the same as if you stayed in another site down the way which would be more expensive. We loved sitting out and watching the boat traffic and fishing right from the bulkhead/dock in front of our site. This park has spared no expense and is one of the nicest places we have stayed. Top notch amenities including a state of the art theater, very nice fitness room, spa, complimentary laundry, nice showers, pool/hot tub, pontoon boat rides and nightly happy hour which was a great place to meet others. We were there for Xmas and New Years Eve and there were planned dinners/potlucks for both. We LOVE this park and will absolutely return. The hosts are very professional and friendly and go out of their way to accommodate any request or question. Site are pavers and very spacious. Wifi and Satellite were great. This is truly a luxurious motorcoach resort and is only available for Motorhomes (Admin note: Class As), no trailers/5th wheels. - tmiller505
This was our first visit and we loved it. The owners have taken great pains in creating and maintaining this campground. They have also employed two of the best managers that we have encountered in all of our travels. They go out of their way to be sure that everything is in proper working order and that everyone is taken care of. We enjoyed being on the water and fishing from the docks right in front of our RV. The campground is gated and we had no worries while there. You can walk or bike anywhere in the small town and not have any worries about your safety. There are several really good, local restaurants within walking or biking distance. There is one grocery store for essentials or else you can drive 30 miles to Naples for more serious shopping. We will definitely return again. - John & Bobbie
