The owners of this campground are super accommodating and made our stay a good one. The campground was, in many ways, reminiscent of the best of State parks. Woodsy and rural, yet offered most modern amenities. Full hookup and a good, large, gravel pad made our stay (33 foot rig) comfortable and clean. Laundry facilities were clean and in working order. Rest rooms were also clean, though I did not check shower facilities. Pool was clean and inviting-looking. Wi-Fi reception was good. No TV reception was available. We would absolutely (and will) return.
This park was a combination of everything we like: large, wooded sites (we were in a 30-amp pull-through) offering privacy; full hookup; cable TV; and (free, flawless) Wi-Fi. It was like going back to nature with all the luxuries of home. As good as the sites were, smallish concrete pads were in process of installation so walking out from one's RV will be even more pleasant. Bath houses were outdated but a sign indicated they would be undergoing renovation in the next month or two. The park itself was a great place to walk and explore, and it was located close to all the Golden Isles locations and attractions. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Our only issue over a four-night stay was intermittent, brief power outages from approximately 5 to 10 a.m. every day. Staff investigated but, by the time we left, did not have it diagnosed. It did not seem to be happening at other sites, however we did not have the problem ourselves at four campgrounds before and one campground after our stay here. We would stay here again and again.
Rate reflects Camp Club USA discount. Even though this campground is relatively small, it was easy to find baths, laundry, lake and all else because signage around the park was so clear. The restroom and showers were clean as was the laundry (one washer/one dryer). Sites were sand; and "shade," if any, was pine trees. The lake was small, but nice and accessible by a pathway. Though it seemed no boating or fishing was allowed, lakeside picnic tables were available. Staff was friendly and helpful. This park's location is fantastic--right off I-95 (very easy to get back on southbound when leaving, but watch carefully for your almost-immediate turn when arriving at the campground from the north). We would absolutely return to this park.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Rate reflects Camp Club USA discount. Restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. Grounds were nicely kept, as was the above ground pool and its surrounding landscape. My overall impression of this park is the owner takes a great deal of pride in appearance and upkeep. Even the trash dumpster was sparkling clean and neat! Our site (23) was wide with a nice, gravel pad, but we did have an issue leveling the rig. The site was not level and jacks were not enough (building up with leveling blocks under the wheels would have worked, but we were only here one night and did not bother, so we lived off-kilter). We did not use or ask about Wi-Fi because internet information advised it was only in a central location. We would definitely return to this campground.
This was a nice park with lots of trees. Each site had wide, gravel pads so it was easy to step out on a solid, clean surface. The pool (we did not use it) looked clean and inviting. Baths and laundry were clean. Staff was pleasant. Cable (and an excellent campground brochure that included channels) was included. Wi-Fi was not free; we bought a card with the minutes we needed (we selected 24 hours for $10). Wi-Fi had intermittent connection issues (bearable but annoying), especially in the early morning hours. Price reflects Good Sam discount. We would come back, but...be aware a Sportsmen's Club is behind this park and shooting practice can be loud and disturbing; it seemed to start in the early evenings and we were unable to walk the dog (who was frightened) during these several-hour shooting sessions.
Staff was friendly and helpful, both over the phone and in person. Sites (we stayed at two different ones, one full HU and one W/E, both in the newer B section) were relatively wide and provided more shade (not much, though) than most in the park. Pads were gravel and wide enough to walk on or, on one of the sites, even accommodated the picnic table. All sites we saw had picnic tables and fire rings. Restrooms were relatively clean and well-stocked (though after everyone's morning showers and ablutions needed re-stock of paper towels and general clean-up). Store was nicely stocked with basic groceries and RV supplies. The game room had a huge TV and people appreciated its air conditioning during the heat spell. A video library and exchange-book library were also available. Pools and playground looked nice, though we did not use them. Though we were not here to participate, it looked like the pot-luck buffet, hay ride, and other activities could be fun. This park was one of the better ones I've found for walking; streets are long and many, and the nature trail offers additional walking area. Wi-Fi worked well. We would definitely come back.
Owners were friendly and helpful. Staff was also ready to help--for example, propane fill-up was a breeze and both day and night. Site escorts were available. Recreation opportunities were plenty--pool, clubhouse with scheduled get-together, basketball and horseshoe areas, library and card room, etc. The Exercise Room was well thought out and equipment was in good condition. Everything was clean and well maintained. (Hint: use the rest/shower rooms nearest the clubhouse. They have less traffic than the ones closer to the campground and stay cleaner longer.) The concrete pads and patios were the widest we have seen so far--so nice to step down onto plenty of clean surface. Sites had very little (or no) shade. Most impressive was the pet-friendliness of this park. In addition to walk areas with baggies provided, they actually had dog-exercise areas (one for large and one for small dogs). This park had easy access to expressways and shopping.
This park was lovely--beautiful shade with lots of tree cover. Our site was wide which, combined with the orientation of sites and ability to park anywhere on the (long) length, allowed for privacy between neighbors. We really appreciated the concrete patios and well-maintained picnic tables. Restrooms and showers were impeccably clean and configured as individual bathrooms for complete privacy. Laundry rooms were clean and all washers/dryers operational. Wi-Fi worked well and every time. The park provided many cable TV channels. Park location was convenient to a lot of shopping, restaurants and major expressways. Staff--both at the front desk and by golf-cart--was very friendly and helpful. The price we paid was an average of 3 nights at regular price combined with the 2-night CampClub discount. We would absolutely stay here again and, based on this and a stay at another Carefree resort, will be trying other Carefree resorts.
This park is still under construction following Hurricane Katrina, however two camping sections were open during our stay. We stayed in the premium, wooded Treasure Cove section. Sites were spacious and wooded (complete with bugs), with pads oriented so each RV had maximum privacy. Note that an often-running train passes behind this section, so be prepared for the noise (day and night). Concrete patios with picnic tables tended to be a distance from the RV pad, so bring outdoor carpet to bridge the two. Since there is so much sandy soil, be prepared for some mess, especially during rainy weather. The Royal Cay (regular, non-premium) section was also operating while we were there. Sites were much narrower with few trees. It looks like other sections are ready for operation during heavy seasons. Some people were using the overflow gulf-front section, however these sites did not have sewer hookup. This was a great park for walking (one could walk to and along the gulf from any site). Laundry and pool are not yet in operation. There is a great laundromat nearby, though, to which staff can direct you. Restrooms and showers, even in areas not being used, were exceptionally clean and well-stocked. Construction is very heavy along Beach Boulevard, so you may have to plan your route out. Staff is very helpful in providing "escape routes." We really enjoyed the rustic feel of our campsite, as well as proximity to casinos and the Gulf.
Staff was friendly and helpful. A bus stop was right across the street, making it very easy to get into downtown San Antonio; the front desk was willing to make change for bus fare and also provided a bus schedule. The laundry was exceptionally well cared for--clean with all machines working. They even provided an iron and ironing board. Cable channels were plentiful and cable worked well. Wi-Fi also worked well; we only had one outage during the week's stay. The site pad was gravel with a great concrete patio and picnic table. Note that the biking/walking path is under construction (the Riverwalk is being extended through here--with some daytime construction noise) right now, so you will have to use the street bike lane if you want to do any serious biking. Our only other disappointment was the width of many (including our) sites. Though Woodall's mentioned the typical site was 35', our premium (pull through) site was probably 20' wide; our awning practically touched our neighbor's slide out.
We were on a pull-through site for three nights. All rental sites seemed to be sand/gravel(?) pads and were very narrow, with no patio. (Our next-door neighbor commented he was amazed we had enough room to extend our awning--he didn't, nor did others). Sites had very little vegetation, so bring your shoe scrapers and mats (and dog owners take note, too, because there is not much vegetation for a dog to use and no real dog walk). Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi (free) connection was spotty; though we used it every day, it was not available all the time. The best thing about this park (and, I'm sure, what you pay for) is location. It is right near the FL Turnpike, and within walking distance to a few small restaurants, drugstores, and Publix (if you are a decent walker). The park was quiet. We would probably look elsewhere when next in the Fort Lauderdale area. Our rate was after Good Sam discount.
