Wish I'd read the earlier reviews about this place. It was almost impossible to get our 32ft fifth wheel into this space. Had it not been for 2 really helpful guys aiding me with the maneuvering, I would have given up and asked for my money back. It took almost 45 minutes of pulling and pushing and scuffing of tires to get the rig spotted, and at that point my truck was almost at 90 degrees to the camper. My two helpers said this happens all the time because the staff don't forewarn people that this is an old site that is mostly residential and the pitches are not big rig friendly.

Will definitely avoid this place in future. We camped at Pelican RV Resort (formerly Pelican Motel & Trail Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park with access to Gulf of Mexico. Sites were small making it difficult to get into. However the staff was very helpful helping us. Very quiet park with friendly staff. Would stay here again and do hope to do just that. We were there for almost one month. The showers/bathrooms were always clean. We camped at Pelican RV Resort (formerly Pelican Motel & Trail Park) in a Travel Trailer.

The staff is rude and unfriendly. No assistance to find our site. No TV, no WIFI, pool was dirty and not heated. Terrible odor from the sewer treatment park next door. Have been RVing for 35 years. This is the worst park we have ever stayed in. We camped at Pelican RV Resort (formerly Pelican Motel & Trail Park) in a Travel Trailer.

We checked in to this place because it's by the keys. An affordable place, but we bet you can stay at much nicer places over there. The sites were pretty small and we barely could fit our 22 foot RV in. Imagine it with your bigger rigs. Lots of extended stays around. That didn't do the campground any good. They offered no wi-fi but we found some free connections anyway. The restrooms and showers were ok. We would not stay here again. We camped at Pelican RV Resort (formerly Pelican Motel & Trail Park) in a Motorhome.
