Rate reflects monthly fee then add electric, which is a very high Kwh (avg $150/mo). This is a 100% owner park and it is gated. The setting is beautiful. Pads are average size. 50/50 back-ins vs pull-ins. 1 large and 1 small clubhouse with nice swimming pools. Lots of planned activities including meals, entertainment and dancing. Most of shopping etc. is within 15-30 minutes. We enjoyed the location. Good medical care is close. We rented directly from owner so the office staff was not quite as responsive because they were not making a commission on the rent. Mail sorting could have been better, but we did have a mailbox. Unfortunately this prime location is being converted from motor homes to park models as the owner population ages (avg age appears to be late 70's). The infrastructure is aging but the owners are active in volunteering to keep it nice. The reserves are strong so they keep the park in very good condition. Soon it will look like a trailer park. There are bear sightings in the park, pigmy rattlesnakes in the wooded areas, and alligators in the lake. Most owners want to know where you are from and how you made your living, to the point of making us uncomfortable. The owners have a class system in place which detracts from wanting to purchase here. The site costs have been reduced from the 2007/8 high but are still to high when you factor in all the other costs of ownership. The rental rate is to high during in-season for what you get so we will not return. On the positive side, they let us wash our coach on the site and permitted repairmen to work on the RV.

A condo park, with all sites owned. Immaculate. Gated entrance, paved roads and sites. Office near entrance and staff most helpful. Led to spacious site by a volunteer resident who offered much information. Everyone encountered most friendly. Good utilities. Very quiet. Our five nights in the area were very enjoyable. Would stay here again. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Crystal Lake is an ownership community. It is gated and the front guard shack is manned until 7pm. There are sites on the lake for mostly motorhomes and some for 5th wheels for purchase. Some of the owners rent out their spaces for guests. In addition, there are many double-wide mobile homes. The park is absolutely beautiful! It appears that it is a snowbird community that is very active during the winter. The park was really quiet when we visited. We had a spot on the lake. Most lots are personally landscaped and the pads are cement and/or paveds. The roads are very wide. The people running the rental service were extremely friendly and helpful. The pools were amazing and open all night. The main clubhouse is open and the showers were so large and clean. They were designed with tiles that made it feel like you were in a 1st class, 5 star resort. The pool area is enclosed with screens so there is no worries about bugs. It was not a long drive to Naples and the surrounding areas. The only issue is that you need to go to the clubhouse to use the internet. That was fine with us since we loved the clubhouse and worked our schedule to work after/before a swim in the amazing pool. The internet connection was great, so it was worth it.

Our second visit here. Top class campground amongst many permanent "houses". We got a site right next to the main pool and club house. Not cheap accommodation but you get what you pay for. The site is pretty empty this time of year and we felt like we had everything to ourselves. We will return to this place for sure. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a beautiful and well run park. It is clean and has all the required amenities. The people that run it are very nice as well. It is however, barely still an RV park. It is mostly a mobile home park at this point, as the bulk of the park is filled with permanent park models. This is not to suggest that the park is any less nice, but it does have a different feel and vibe than a typical RV park might. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

We have spent several very pleasant winters at Crystal Lake, with its great facilities and hospitable residents (both owners and renters like ourselves). The enjoyment we experienced was in no small measure due to the reliable, helpful, friendly attitude of the then rental managers who were replaced this past spring. The new regime displayed a level of incompetence in handling our reservation request for 2011/12 so we have made reservations elsewhere. A lot purchase would also not be in the cards.

We stayed at this park one night on our way to the keys, and liked it so much, we stayed here on our way back. It is truly a beautiful park with landscaping second to none. Park Models, Double Wide units, and RVs together normally do not mix, but in this ownership park, that is not the case. It is well thought out and designed with plenty of room to maneuver. The sites are concrete, most with varied decorative coatings. Since the sites are owned, many have lawn sheds at the back of the site, but the sites are so large there is no interference. Their park rules read more like a condominium association than a campground with fines and such for infractions, but I believe that is mostly when the park is full of owners in the winter months. There were few residents here during our two, one night stays, those that were seemed friendly with everyone passing by waving. It's a good one night stop if you want a break before crossing the state on Alligator Alley. We'll stay here again when down this way. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Everyone was very welcoming here. The sites are gorgeous and the amenities are top notch. There is a Publix nearby with a good selection of grilling food for a relaxing time around the campsite at the end of a day at the beach. It is not inexpensive but we felt that you got what you paid for. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

This is an absolutely beautiful and well-maintained park. It is by far the fanciest place we have ever stayed. The rate reflects part of a month at winter rate and part at off-season. Everything said in the other posts is true: the entire facility is very clean and extremely well maintained, the residents and staff are friendly, etc. The only "downside" is that most of this park is no longer an "RV Resort." There are 90 sites out of 490 that are deed-restricted for Class A motorhomes, and of the rest we estimate 3 out of 4 are occupied by park models. It is very clear from the listings for resale properties that the sales emphasis is on letting buyers know they can put park models on all but the 90 restricted sites. There is nothing wrong with this and all the park models are well maintained, but you should know that your neighbors are unlikely to be RVers. We stayed in one of the Class A sites and 75% of our neighbors were owners, most of whom had spent the winter here. Lots of Prevosts and other very high-end coaches. We would definitely come back here, but we would only want to stay in the restricted Class A area; otherwise we would feel as if we were staying in a (very fancy) trailer park.

Expensive, but a great place to stay! Staff and guests are friendly and helpful. Lots are large and private. Wi-fi available only in the office and rec center, but a high speed cable modem is available at a nominal cost. Many activities and facilities for recreation are available. Groceries and restaurants are close. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

First of all this site is big. If you happen to get a site furthest from the entrance you will have a very long walk to the bath houses and approx 3/4 mile)to the pool. Other than this this camp ground is immaculate in every way, well, almost. We was informed that the campground was at "high level" and therefore we would have no problems with mosquitoes. As it happened we have never been to a site where we received more mosquito bites than on this one. We had mosquito bites on top of our mosquito bites. Haven said this, campground is well worth a visit. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

What a wonderful park! We stayed a month. We practically had the pool to ourselves. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a resort, not a campground. It has everything possible to make one's stay perfect. Check in was fast, friendly, and efficient. The entire three weeks we were there the staff was working on keeping it clean. In addition to all the things others have mentioned, we appreciated being able to wash our fifth wheel at our site, the truck wash in back, recycling of aluminum cans and newspapers, the bike bath, fitness center, and laundry. Our site was beautifully landscaped to provide a nice shade. It is definitely the friendliest place we've ever stayed. Within 10 minutes after arriving, a resident came to invite us to a potluck and events happening on the weekend. Everyone waved anytime meeting others on the road or passing by. The cable had enough channels that we didn't set up our satellite. If there was any drawback, it was the lack of Wi-Fi at our site. We went to the library or laundry area to use it. We loved our stay definitely will be back. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We can't find a thing to criticize about this park. Mixed park models, permanents, and short term surrounding a small artificial lake. Two clubhouses with heated pools, hot tubs, laundry. Daily trash pickup at your site. No recycling. Compulsively kept up; every tree, hedge, blade of grass meticulously groomed. We could find no structure in need of paint or repair. Our rig was the only thing in the park in need of cleaning and polishing; an odd feeling. Quiet and peaceful with good security. Another reviewer described this park as an older park; doesn't look old to us. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Crystal Lake is a well maintained older RV park. The folks who run the rental and sales office are very helpful and terrific. If you don't mind a 50/50 mix of Park models and motor homes we would highly recommend this park. We camped at Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo
