This is a great park with lots of activities and friendly people at the Rec Halls both at the Trade Winds Hall and at its sister park across Stewart Rd, Mission Bell. The Managers and Work Campers were wonderful. The restrooms and laundry rooms were always clean. We camped at Trade Winds RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Advertised as a pet friendly park,but we had to move to a different site due to 2 crabby neighbors in park models complaining about some barking in the motorhome with windows closed, during the daytime. The manager was rude. The second lot was very dirty and dusty like a dust bowl. The park needs a lot of maintainance and electrical upgrading. The workcampers did an excellent job of keeping the restrooms and showers clean. Sites are small and streets are very narrow. Mostly park models. We will not return.

Stayed last of January and most of February and was very pleased. Park has new managers and they are very friendly and helpful. There is a nice pool and setting area; and a nice recreation hall. Would stay again if I get the chance. We camped at Trade Winds RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This was the worst experience we have had in an RV park. I have never seen a management team treat their seasonal RV'ers and permanent residents with such a rude, arrogant and abusive attitude. Our first time to Tradewinds as a seasonal RV'er, we were caught in the middle of a true battle between long term residents and management. This park even made the local paper because it was illegally evicting residents. This did not include all the "warning letters" that were sent out to some of their most active volunteers. If the atmosphere wasn't bad enough, then not receiving the services they advertise should definitely keep you out of this park. The pool was closed for 8 of the 12 weeks we stayed here. The WiFi was never reliable or consistent and they were actually charging for it across the street at their sister park Mission Bell. There was suppose to be a free phone in the hall that was never connected the whole time we were here. They removed a filtered water machine, ice machine and closed their hall to residents, first at 10pm and when they complained they changed it to 9pm. There are people actually moving their permanent park models out of this park. There is a beautiful dance floor at the Mission Bell park across the street, but you can't attend the public dances without having to stay in the park. When I personally complained about WiFi and closed pool, the Assistant Manager told me I should move to a nearby park. So when my prepaid 3 months was up, I did. They advertise this as a family owned and operated park, but it is being operated by an unrelated management team. We camped at Trade Winds RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This park has gone down over the last year. The Wi-Fi works part of the time. The pool has been closed for over a month now; the parts are supposed to be on order. The phone that is listed on their web site for making free calls has also been removed. The park made the local newspaper ( The Monitor) after a couple where asked to leave for not agreeing with the manager. We camped at Trade Winds RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older park as are most in the area. We had a site with patio, our motor home has slides on both sides and we did not have a problem. Our $25.00 per night included full hookups which included electric. Only the people that stayed a month or longer paid electric at 16 cents a kilo watt. The pool was clean and well kept. Nice laundry room. Lots of activities, we were well received by the other people in the park. People in the office were very helpful and supplied us with an area map and information packet as well as a schedule of events and activities in the park. This is a 55 plus park so did not cater to families, we did not find one in the area that did., we had our grandaughter with us and that was ok with the management. We would come back to this park and stay longer. We camped at Trade Winds RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

What a fantastic park. We have never met such friendly people, particularly the managers . The residents make you feel at home and there is so much to do in this park. The pool and heated jacuzzi are great. They have dances, card games and shuffleboard. A great mix of park models and people staying 1-6 months. They offer free long distance calls in the USA and Canada. It was great. They also have free WiFi. The park is family owned and we met the owners when we were there. They were very nice and took care that the needs of the residents were being met. They are starting their fourth year of ownership. We highly recommend the park and think you get a great value for your money. We camped at Trade Winds RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This is not a RV campground, it should be called a Park Model Park as most of the sites have been turned in to Park Model sites. The rates vary by the season and it is a very old campground with many of the people living there having been there 20 years or more. They have good security because the gates are closed by 8PM each night and you really feel like your in lock down conditions. People are friendly but stand offish as most have known each others for years. They have changed ownership twice in 4 years and managers twice in one year, plus the park is run by a very large management company hired by the owners to run the park. The last manager had no "0" people skills and the park was in an uproar the whole time we were there. We stayed there for 4 months from December 2005 to March 2006. Sites very small and tight, may not be able to open awnings when site next to you is filled. You can do much better in this area at other parks. New managers started first of March and do seem to have some people skills so things may improve. You pay for electric as it is metered and expensive.
