We stayed in this campground because of previous reviews and the fact that they had cable and wireless internet. Both were excellent. The cable was clear with over 50 channels and the Wi-Fi was very responsive. The sites are level and will accommodate larger units and most are pull-throughs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is easily accessible from the interstate and is close to most shopping and restaurants. We ended up staying 4 days longer than we had expected due to the central location for many of the sites and activities in the area. Would recommend the park for overnight or extended stay.
This park is very accessible from the interstate and the sites are level and large. They are gravel with gravel patios. The employees were friendly and helpful with information regarding the surrounding area. The park does not have cable and there are no local stations so, unless you have satellite, you will not get much reception. Good park for an overnight stay but I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time there.
This campground gave us easy access to downtown San Antonio for all the many available things to see and do. A bus stop across the street will take you downtown throughout the day. The sites were gravel with concrete pads and were level. There is a public golf course immediately adjacent to the park. The workers were very friendly and helpful and you could even make arrangements for tours at the office. Overall, we were very pleased with our accommodations and would recommend the park. Additionally, there is a small Mexican restaurant directly across the street which you should definitely take advantage of if you stay at this park or even if you are in San Antonio. The food was delicious, the margaritas were excellent and the owners were extremely hospitable.
We only stayed in the park for a couple of nights because we were traveling through the area. If I were to spend any time at all in the Houston area, I would pick this park. The sites were level and spacious and the park was very clean and the long-term residents kept their sites very neat. This is a good indication of good management of the park. The park is gated so there should be no security issues. We would recommend this park to anyone.
Park was very clean and sites were roomy and level. It is located just a couple of blocks from the Bourbon St. area which makes it easy to visit the sites. However, you are warned not to be out at night between Bourbon St. and the RV resort. With this in mind, we still felt very secure while in the park as it has very good security and is gated. Would recommend to anyone who wants to visit the "flavor" of New Orleans. Access from the interstate is fairly easy.
We stayed in this campground over a three week period. We chose it based on observations from last winter when we first visited while staying at another campground in the area. The campground is laid out very nicely and the sites are level and very large. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only reason I did not give a higher rating: the swimming pool was still not finished from last February and the park appears to be needing some normal maintenance. There was very little to do as far as planned activities but we were told that it would pick-up in December when the park fills up for the winter. The park has great potential but, at this time, I could only rate it a 7.
The park is out in the middle of some cotton fields and is set up as a condominium park where you can lease the lots. The operators of the park, as well as the other people we met, were very friendly and helpful. The park, however, has very narrow roads and there are very few amenities. I would give the park employees a "10" but the park gets only a "6". There is no cable and the site we were on was not very level. The sites do have concrete pads and patios. Not a bad park, but just not much to do.
This was our first visit to the resort and, to say the least, we were extremely satisfied with the entire park. While the rate is expensive, you get what you pay for. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The gentleman who escorted us to our site put us on site better than any I have ever experienced. Our site was equipped with a complete set of outdoor furniture and the site was level and extremely well maintained as was the entire park. The park is located between Savannah and Charleston and allows easy access to both areas. I would highly recommend this park to everyone.
We arrived a day early and after hours however, the nighttime attendant was very helpful and was able to call and get us a site for the evening. We had to move the next day but that was to be expected. The campground is on very hilly ground and their were very few level sites. The office staff was very helpful and friendly and were able to give you a lot of information about the surrounding area for dining and entertainment. Unfortunately, as previously stated by other reviewers, there are a lot of very loud trains which go by at all hours of the day and night. The road to the campground is fairly narrow and hilly with some sharp turns but has a good surface. The campground needs a little attention to be rated any higher. Their interior roads are getting bad and there is very little room to park a "toad" vehicle.
We stayed in this campground throughout the winter which is why our daily rate is so small. The park is very open and easily accessible but, unfortunately, the is no lake in Grand Lake Resort. Orange Lake, evidently, had a sinkhole appear several years ago and, along with the recent dry weather in the area, the shoreline is probably 20 feet from the docks at the marina. There is no way to access the lake for fishing or boating at the resort. The golf course is nice but could have a little more care given to keep the greens in better shape. Some of them are in really bad condition. The water situation in the park needs to be improved. Almost everyone has to have at least one filter but most have two or more. We had a full coach filter and drinking water filter as well as a water softener and we still had a few times when the water was cloudy or smelly. The park is situated about half way between Ocala and Gainesville, 15 miles each way, which makes grocery shopping a fairly long trip. There was a very large turnover of resort employees while we were there. I think there were 3 different managers during our stay and several workkampers were let go early prior to their contracts being up. All this lead to a lot of turmoil and kept a lot of the residents guessing what was going to happen next. The campground has the potential to be a first class resort if the facilities would be upgraded and improved. But as it now stands, I could only give it a rating of 5.
The park appears to be more suited to the permanent residents than travelers. The people at the office were not very friendly or knowledgeable. The park is divided into three seperate areas and the two bathhouses are both located in the area where the permanent residents are located. The site we were given was approximately 1/2 mile from the restrooms/bathhouses. The washers and dryers were filthy, the tennis courts were overgrown with weeds, the pool was dirty and the nearby interstate highway traffic sound was very loud. When we arrived at our site, the 50 amp plug was damaged on our power pole, but usable. The second day of our visit, we returned from touring the area to find that the power pole and entire meter box was laying in pieces next to our motorhome with our power cord lying unplugged next to it. When I went to the office to inquire about what had happened, I was told that the handyman had left to find a part and would be back soon. I asked why we were given a site which needed repairs when there were several sites adjacent which appeared to be in good repair. Our overall impressions were, obviously, not good and we could not recommend this campground to anyone. There are two other campgrounds witinin a mile or so which might be a better choice.
