Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $30.00
If you like to stay between a custom home construction site and a place that sells a lot of pavers, plus have the ambiance of a very busy freeway with limited lake view, then stay here. Not only is the location bad, but the staff isn't friendly either. Nothing like having an old crotchety drunk who thinks he's a security almost run head on into your car to harass you because you were going 15 mph through the park. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We admit that park personnel at this RV park were friendly and helpful initially, but when we ran into a verified high voltage problem with the park the manager would not admit that there was an issue that needed to be addressed. We have an electrical management system in our motorhome which shuts down power to the rig at above 132 volts, and which did so several times. Using the Lakeview RV park's voltmeter with the manager present, as well as my own, we confirmed about 280 volts in the pedestal wiring which supplies power to the 50 amp outlet, and 140 volts in the wiring supplying power to the 30 amp outlet. All of the expert opinion that I can find, and it was substantial, indicates that these pedestals are out of those power company specs which I am told should be 120V +/- 10% or +/- 12 volts. Those specififications using this formula would permit a maximum of 132 Volts allowable, and voltage at 140 volts is substantially above this level. Since the park manager admitted to me that they had checked three additional pedestals and found the same voltage at all, they assumed that there was no problem. I talked to three licensed electricians, as well as to other experts in the field, receiving eight total opinions that this situation is a serious problem. I believe that the real problem with this situation, however, is that park management would not believe that this is a problem. They told me, with witnesses present, that they have been having substantial electrical problems. However, all they could say was that the only time that they had ever seen this particular problem was with large motorhomes. There are a large percentage of trailers and fifth wheels in this park, and I believe that none of them has the capability to detect electrical problems to the extent that many large motorhomes do. I believe that this situation and this park management attitude will only change when one of these units has a fire or perhaps burns to the ground. I believe that the excessive voltage present could burn up light bulbs, TV sets, refrigerators and other sensitive electrical units and could cause other electrical problems. We had paid for a week's stay but left three days early, and of course they would not refund our money. Their only comment was that since I believed that the voltage was too high, that we should leave the park, which is what we did. This is not the kind of RV park that I ever wish to visit again.
