This is a very large park with a lot of long term residents. The staff were adequate but somewhat impersonal and residents seemed to know each other but not outsiders. The ground around sites was sandy and tracked in because it was raining. Facilities were fine and they had a great music jam on Thursday nights as well as other activities. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Motorhome.

If you are in this area be sure to visit Tarpon Springs, a Greek sponge fishing village that has become quite a tourism site, but fun to visit.

Stayed here for 2 months, from December 28, 2016 - February 28, 2017, on the recommendation of friends who Snowbird here. The residents are very friendly and courteous, and the park is well-maintained. For those seeking activities, tennis, swimming, shuffleboard, get-togethers and entertainment, etc, there is plenty to keep one occupied. If you are more of a loner, like me, there is no emotional push to join in. Making reservations was easy. There is generally room here during the Snowbird season. Unfortunately, the Noseeums were thick this winter so I was not able to sit outside very often. I was given an end spot, facing the dog walk. Generally, people are good at picking up after their pets, but there were a few times I had an unexpected surprise in the grass near my door. I have a 32 ft fifth wheel. I had to back up my pick up truck as far as the hitch to get clear of the road. Campers who arrived next to me were so close that their cigarette smoke would blow into my rig. Not pleasant. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great area for photographers and bird watchers. Clearwater, Dunedin, Tarpon Springs, Safety Harbor and Homosassa are all well-worth visiting. Shopping and restaurants, even several flea markets. An excellent central location.

We stayed here for a week in February in our motorhome. Park has mostly permanent trailers which some need to be updated. People were friendly. Hard to find a full paved site. Good for an short stay. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Motorhome.

Ja-Mar is a suburban park abutting U.S. 19, which is a major state highway to Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, and Tampa. It is not a traditional rural campground, but instead the best-maintained mobile home park I've ever seen. It offers the opportunity to basecamp with convenient access to many Florida attractions. Campsites are back-in. The staff members are unfailingly pleasant and helpful. The park office freely offers next-day permits to wash one's RV at one's site (no charge). Each site has a separate clearly-marked recycled water faucet to be used for RV washing. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Travel Trailer.

This park is located right on US 19, near restaurants and shopping. The park is mostly park models but there are paved roads and the RV sites are paved or have a concrete porch. The staff is exceptionally friendly and the price is very reasonable for the area. If you are a Passport America customer, they honor this discount year-round for as long as you want to stay. The park is clean and well-maintained and has lots of activities during the prime season. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Motorhome.

The park is majority long term modular homes.There were maybe 20 RVs in the whole park. Lots are very close together and all back-in. There are some pretty tight turns. The park is not pet friendly really. Pets are only allowed on certain streets, maybe two streets. We were at the back of the park with our two dogs and it was a long walk to find a grassy area. You do not dare go near a "no pet street" while just trying to get to the grassy area, people will quickly reprimand you. No cable, and the antenna reception was not very good. No Wi-Fi in the park. We stayed here a week because of the location but will not be back. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Fifth Wheel.

The office staff was friendly and the park is laid out well. No trees and the sites are close together. They still have plenty of activities for the month of April. They have special area's that are pet friendly which is nice. People in the park are also very nice. We stayed here three days and would come back again.

We have stayed here (I'm talking about the south park} many times before and will continue to return. The streets are all paved, each site has either full asphalt or at least a concrete pad and most of the sites are adequate, if not large. The park is neat and tidy. The last time we were here we had trouble getting in. This year there are empty sites everywhere and they are charging $24 a night for anyone with any membership card. The only problem we had was with the Wi-Fi, which is free in the library. We couldn't connect and they kept telling us that we had to change the settings on our computer. Hours later they finally rebooted the router and all was good. There's a big flea market just to the north and lots of shopping in the area. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Motorhome.

There are two Ja-Mar Travel Parks. This review is for Ja-Mar North. The entrance is very nice and clean. There is a gate, well maintained paved roads, two ponds and a very nice club house. This is more of a park model park and all seem to be in good condition. There are separate areas to stay if you have pets. Which means you are farther away from the pool and the clubhouse. The sites are grass and/or sand with concrete patios. They are straight back in sites which could be harder for people with large rigs. There is no cable TV or WiFi at the sites. The clubhouse, although very nice, didn't have a lot going on. The laundry was expensive and there are no times on the machines. You have to guess how long things will take. The pool looked nice and I checked out the "one" bathhouse which I decided not to use. It is old and didn't look that great. Again this is not really an "RV" park, so most people don't use the bathhouse. Overall it is a clean park for this area as there aren't any great parks here. Would I stay here again? Maybe. It depends on how bad the other parks have gotten. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Motorhome.

This is a suburban park located just off Route US-19 in Port Richey. The majority of the sites are permanent or seasonal, but this is a Passport America campground as well, and member sites are available year-round as long as one makes reservations for a minimum of seven days. The management is quite friendly, competent, and firm. Although this is an older park, it is exceedingly well cared for, and makes a great base camp location from which to sample the Orlando and Tampa-area attractions. Or just kick back, which is another prime reason for our continued visits. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice place. Almost all were snow birds or permanent. Everyone we met was friendly. Wi-Fi available at the office area. Pool was nice but closed at 5 each evening while we here, and since we don't generally get back before that from tourist stuff, didn't get to use it much. Clean and well maintained throughout. Not pet friendly. There is a small part of the park where they will give you (your dog) a spot, and you can only walk in that very small area. If we didn't have dogs we would come back. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Fifth Wheel.

Reflects Passport America rate. We camped here for a week and found the campground to be clean with friendly permanent residents.The sites are close together but during our stay before Christmas, it was not crowded and we had plenty of room. The pool was clean and warm. Close to all big stores, just off Hwy 19 but didn't find it to be noisy. We would camp here again. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Fifth Wheel.

We paid the daily Passport America rate for our 18-day stay (one must stay a minimum of 7 days to qualify for that PA rate). This is a suburban RV park, the majority of whose residents are older seasonal types who arrive about late October and depart about April. A limited number of sites are retained for shorter-term visitors. We would recommend reservations. The park is almost 36 years old, and has had constant improvements and upgrades. It is proudly managed in a friendly manner and maintained by several generations of its founding family. It makes a fine base camp for visits to Disney, Tampa, and other attractions: or simply to kick back and relax with a sequence of novels. Two items to note: (1) As with most older parks, individual sites are not overly large, and (2) the Wi-Fi is almost totally limited to the combination library/computer room (and one must bring one's own laptop). We've visited yearly for 3 of the past 4 years. And we will return again. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Travel Trailer.

The sites are extremely close. The dog walking area is small, not pet friendly. The permanent sites are old, and many are run down, not very attractive. No internet at sites, no cable. We have stayed at campgrounds that are cheaper than Ja-Mar and got free cable and internet at the site. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Motorhome.
