Friendly personnel, paved sites with a bit of grass and trees, close to others but private, paved roads, laundry sites close by, pool and billiards, group activities available. Close to nice beaches. Grocery store one block away. Greek restaurants! - Bwest

Like most Encore parks, this is an RV resort, NOT a campground. Many parks in Florida are designed for the multitude of snowbirds that come down from the cold, frigid north. They don't have very many spaces for transient customers, but that's really to be expected in this part of the country in the winter! We needed a night to fill in our stay at a nearby state park because we couldn't plan far enough in advance. This worked, but just barely. Because of our size, it was a challenge to get into our space. Fortunately for us the site was wide, because the roads in the park are narrow. Not much room to back up a 45' fifth wheel, but we managed. Restrooms were clean, and the park was very tidy. We wouldn't choose to come here again, but because we had an activity planned and needed to stay in the area we were glad it was available for the one day we needed it. - Denise and Glenn

I made reservations for this campground through my Thousand Trails membership, which I shall not renew because this is the kind of campground they feature: closely packed spaces, difficult to navigate, poor site maintenance, but lots of "resort" activities. Nonetheless, snow-birds and retirees seem to love it. They flock down by the thousands to nest in such places for the month or the season or the year. Not me! Ain't my type of place! I visited Florida as a kind of "bucket list" item. Now it's over, and I won't go back. - Jim Fulton

If you're looking for a campground, you'll be disappointed. If you're looking for a convenient location to see the Tampa sites, it's great. The park is clean, restrooms older but well kept. Sites are small and interior roads are very narrow. The employees are very nice and there's usually an activity almost every day. About 75% of the sites are annuals, but they're generally show models and the majority are well kept. - dseipel2

Price reflects weekly rate of $250. Section 12 is brand new and beautiful. Large long concrete pads and beautiful grass. Utilities are placed perfectly. They are back in sites; however, personnel is very skilled in maneuvering you into the lot. This is a super location close to Tampa and Clearwater. The other side of the park is old and needs renovation. Close lots with gravel and old electric. I would not stay anywhere except in Section 12. It was a very enjoyable stay and I will return. - Freedom Bus

This is a large busy park with two distinct sections. New section on Mullet Creek is a modern model of RV Parks. It has large angled concrete pads for easy backing; unlike older section. New one-unit utility pedestals with 50 to 100 amp service to accommodate newer bigger rigs. It also has the price to go with it. Missing from this section are showers or restrooms. If patrons choose to use provided facilities, they'll have to use the restroom/shower facilities in the other older section. Restrooms and showers are always clean and neat. Older section has some permanents, but park has rules and enforces them so perms have to keep up their sites. Close to gulf beaches, Busch Gardens, Ybor City, and many other Tampa Bay attractions. Staff friendly and very helpful. Older section is a little tight for large rigs, but manageable. Traffic noise from Hillsborough Ave can be annoying, especially the sites in the rear of the park. - Rick Frazier

Bay Bayou was a convenient RV park for my husband and I and our 20 foot travel trailer. We chose this site because of its location, and because it had a swimming pool. We had our two grandsons with us for nine days and we had chosen a Site almost directly across from the pool for their pleasure. We found the campground very well-maintained with spacious sites and full hook ups. The Wi-Fi was strong though a bit overloaded as anticipated late in the day. Laundry facilities were located in various areas of the park and were reasonably priced, well-maintained and adequate number for no wait. Because we were there late in April many of the residents had already left to head north so we did not get involved with the limited activities offered at that time. It is our understanding that during the winter there are many activities offered and we were told a very friendly resident community. There was cable connectivity included with your rate and a wide variety of channels offered. The park has kayak and canoe launch though no rentals available and areas from which one can fish. A wide variety of county parks, restaurants stores and supermarkets within easy reach. We even found a BMX track that our grandsons could try out. Lots of fun things to do in Tampa and St. Petersburg as well has done Eden and Clearwater. The community building has a library, a stage, large screen TV, pool table lots of games and puzzles, computer station, sewing station, and many tables for community activities. Again we did not participate in any as those offered at this time were not of our interest. The pool was kept clean with lots of tables and loungers and on Wednesday they have a midday hamburger hotdog barbecue. The boys had loads of fun spending hours in the pool With the season coming to an end we did not feel what is likely to be the enthusiasm of winter residence and did in turn become included in the limited activities offered. - John-Jean

For short stays they a few spots near the gold course and parking lot for the golf clubhouse and restaurant (look at it on google earth). Spots were hard to get into and some spots we would not have been able to access. An employee helped us get into spot and was very helpful. He did mention that there are other spots if we pay more. The park is a very nice mobile home park some long term RV spots and the small short term area. The area we were in had crumbling patio slabs but lots of shade. Park on the dirt but level. Very quite and well kept park. We didn't spend much time at the park so it was fine but wouldn't really want to be hanging out in these overflow/short term spots. If you will be hanging out at RV ask about booking a site with better patio area. Tow vehicle in clubhouse parking lot next to spot. - CaRoadTripper

We have been staying at the Silver Dollar for many years, usually in the off season, while visiting family and friends in the area. The price is good compared to the few other parks in the area, but I must say the RV spots are getting more and more run down - broken slabs, weeds, broken tree branches and trash everywhere. On the plus side, the laundry is clean and priced right, nice safe areas for morning/evening walks and it is quiet (on the golf side) especially at night. Don't know if we will be there again, unless they clean the RV area up a bit. - housecar

Wow, the only thing I can say is this park is not big rig friendly. Tight turning and very short sites make this a challenge to larger campers like our 36 foot travel trailer. You cannot get your rig and tow vehicle on the same site. Our hitch was at the curb of the road and the rear had about 1 foot of space before the electric post. I totally agree with the other review below about noise and how busy it it. More for the permanent homes; RV lots are an afterthought. Seems the RV sites were laid out in the 50s and 60s before folks started buying larger RVs. Would stay here again only if there was nothing else in the area...or maybe not go at all. - clicker

The owners are doing a great job building a very nice campground in an urban setting. Interior roads can be tight, some spaces can handle big rigs if they back in. Sites are crushed shells, interior roads are asphalt/gravel. All-new utilities, lush landscaping, not much noise from US 19. Cable is not installed yet, but they tell you this clearly on check-in. Our site got satellite reception just fine so it wasn't a problem, but some sites would be blocked by trees. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the Tarpon Springs area. - expdek570

This is a newly remodeled, attractive RV park with FHU back-in sites on crushed gravel, sloped for run-off. All utilities and wifi worked well. There is a pool, modern and clean bathrooms/showers and laundry area. There is also a small fenced dog park and limited space for walking a large dog. The park is in an urban setting so space is at a premium - roads are narrow and sites are close together. However it is landscaped attractively. It is located right off US Hwy 19, but road noise was not a problem. It is convenient to shopping, and Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks, Tampa and St. Petersburg (The Dali Museum). - JoyceM

Nice park, lots of snow birds in the winter. People treat you like family. - Roaming Productions
Feb 2018 - $28.00
We stayed at the park for two months from December until February. Rate is based on monthly stay. Sites are grass and most have a cement patio. Park is a mix of RV's and Park Models. Lots are back-ins, not huge, but large enough for big rigs and other vehicles. Since designed for park models at least awnings are not touching. Dominated by snowbirds, but there are some permanent residents, and not all are seniors. There are trees for shade, however, they also drop leaves constantly. We had satellite reception and all major networks are available OTA. Cable TV is available if you contract with local provider. WiFi worked most of the time. WiFi speed depended on time of day. Park is well kept and residents are friendly and considerate. Park staff are very helpful. Bathhouses and laundry are older but very well maintained. Washer and dryers were $1.25 a load. We would return to the park. - RagTopDay

This is not a luxury resort. They are a 9 in their class. Grass sites with concrete patio. Patio's need work in some sites. This is our third winter here and they are improving some sites each year. Staff is great. Realistically I can't think of any improvements other than the patio's that could be made. - Beas

Nasty Place, Stay Away! We never even stayed there because of what happened when we pulled in! We arrived at night and my wife had to use the restroom so I dropped her off and went to check in. Three minutes later she came running up to me and said, "we are leaving, this place is disgusting!" She said the man who lived next to the bathroom, a huge man with no shirt on and a ton of junk in his lot, looked her up and down as she was entering the restroom. Then, while she was in there, she heard him make comments about her nice body to his friends and that he'd like to "do her" (he used a much more explicit term.) I guess there were a bunch of them drinking with this guy and so sex talk started. My poor wife was shaking. While she was being sexually harassed in the bathroom, I had driven around and the place is a DUMP and so we got the heck out of there. Lot's of long timers with junk in the yard, broken down old cars, etc. No pool, narrow lots and in a bad neighborhood. Seriously? HOW this place is listed on Good Sam is beyond me. To make matters worse, we stopped at a 7-11 about a block away to park for a moment to find another RV park to go to. A guy came up to our window and asked what kind of high we were looking for. Stay away...nasty people, nasty place!I wouldn't take children either...I can't imagine what I would have done if that guy had approached my daughter. So if your travel with your wife and kids, find a park without perverts and drunks. - Travelin Mac

If you're looking for Yogi or KOA, this ain't it. These people live here and work hard and keep to themselves and are polite enough. Our fiver barely fit in our site, next to an even bigger fiver. But the staff is nice enough and it's very convenient to a mall and several other shopping centers. There was a hole on our site when we moved in. We mentioned it to an office worker and there was a guy here with a wheel barrow full of mulch that day. And they were trying to catch the guy who wasn't cleaning up after his dog. A fair price for a convenient stay in season. - melissabrvs

I Do Not Recommend this RV park to anyone. First of all it's located in a really sketchy part of Tampa. We were there for 3 months. Our first month, during the daylight hours, we caught 3 local kids stealing one of our bikes, got it back that time, but a week later, they came back and cut the locks off both our bikes and took both of them. These kids continued to come back over and over. Also managing to steal other RVers bikes.
When it first happen, the acting manager said and I quote, "I can't be outside 24/7." Excuse me? Im sorry, but that is the wrong answer to tell your customers who pay quite a bit to stay in your not very attractive RV park. The people who run this place really don't care if anyone steals your stuff. I didn't even get an I'm sorry that happened to you.
This place is not your typical RV park. There are long term residents, its across the street from a family dollar. Its near Busch Gardens and a lot of businesses. Thats about the only thing it has going for it. The bathrooms are ok, however the stall doors are right in your face when you sit down. The laundry room is located in between the bathrooms. 2 out of 4 washers don't work and 2 of 3 dryers do work. There's no pool either. They also charge for electric.
I will never ever stay here again. If you decide to stay, its def going to be at your own risk and don't have any expectations. - Ellie Q

We really enjoyed our stay here. The park is right next to The Pinellas Trail where you can walk, run or bike ride for forever (93 miles!) We rode our bikes to Honeymoon Island state park. Beautiful! There are about 6-7 restaurants just a few blocks away. The RV Park is very well run. Clean bathrooms, nice laundry room and a nice pool. The people we met were very friendly. They constantly keep up with the place. Tarpon Springs is nearby and it's only 20 minutes to Clearwater Beach. We paid $1100 for 5 weeks, off-season. - GPSunny

We waited to do the review because this was our first experience. Now with comparisons we can state the staff was great, the park was clean and everyone was helpful. The park appears to have more full time residents than campers, however it was located in a good area for our needs. I recommend if you are staying in the area. - The crusty luddite

This place is owned and operated by a hardworking young man and his sweet wife. Both of them were extremely accommodating. They went out of their way to help us with everything from recommending a yoga class to a rather silly and unusual favor involving our dog. :) Caladesi is clean and well-maintained. It has a fantastic location, just a block away from the Pinellas Trail and lots of cute shops and restaurants. That's super convenient because I was able to explore on my own when my husband was on the golf course. And the tenants and campers were very warm and friendly. One man introduced himself when we arrived and another lady offered to drive me to the yoga class. We got to socialize with even more of them during the free coffee and donuts event each Thursday morning. We haven't been to this area of Florida in more than ten years, but we had such a fantastic experience at Caladesi RV that we plan to return there in a month or two. We can't wait. We prefer to stay at a small and warm family-owned campground rather than the stuffy, corporate type so common these days. - prairie4peace

We stayed 2 nights. The rec. room was wonderful for the kids and the laundry room was clean. The big problem we had was that we had to park on the grass. We travel in a 33' class C motorhome with a tow. It rained quite about so the ground was muddy. There were ruts in the grass which made more mud. You had to pay for a premium site if you want to park on a slab. We didn't know this or we would havr done it. Muddy shoes for 2 days was not good. - SoniaR

We stayed here from April through the end of June and loved the campground. It can be a little noisy because of the proximity to ALT 19 but the distance from multiple beaches including being 4 miles from Dunedin Beach and Honeymoon Island make up for the noise. It also had a number of excellent restaurants with in walking distance from the Pinellas hiking/biking trail right behind the park. And a delicious ice cream shop with in 200 yds of the park. The staff was very helpful. Sites were large enough for our 34' Class A but we had some difficulty getting level in our site. The park is pet friendly and several of the staff will actually pet sit. For longer times of leaving our 2 dogs in doggie day care we used Dick Martins K9 Adventures. They were wonderful with our pets and very professional. - Bruce_SA

This is our second stay at this park. The park is nicely maintained with pretty regular maintenance and upkeep. The park is mostly full time manufactured homes or stationary RV's of different types. Spots are reasonably spaced apart with the ones on the lake closer together than those farther away. Very few pull-throughs but plenty of storage space for tow dollies or trailers. Roads are well kept with no potholes. Although we didn't use the bathrooms, showers or laundry, they were all well kept up. There is a nice sized lake with a large gazebo with fans and plenty of seating. They also have a very nice swimming pool. The folks who run the office couldn't be nicer or try to be more accommodating. The location is good, not far from the beaches, shopping or downtown Clearwater or St. Pete. Good cell phone services, decent wifi, but no cable tv.
Pricing is consistent for this area. Off season is pretty reasonable, especially the monthly rate. Monthly rates are good but do not include electric. In season, pricing goes up more than $200.00 per month. It makes sense, because by the beginning of summer, the park is completely booked during the winter. The price, is however, very competitive with neighboring parks (some of which offer less for the money). This is not an area of brand new, high end parks.
All and all, a good place to stay. We have already made reservations to come back a few times during the next year. - Ivan46
