Bluewater RV Resort is an excellent RV park. It is the nicest we have encountered in our coast to coast travels. The manager and her staff are very friendly and helpful. They provide everything from assisting in set up to recommending excellent restaurants. Our site was very private and had great accommodations. The Tiki Hut had a bar, TV, refrigerator, freezer and very comfortable furniture. It also had a dock and private DSL wireless hookup. We love the place and will return. Have already made reservations. We stayed six nights at an average rate of $125/night including tax. A tad expensive, but worth it. Not all of the sites appear to be as well set up as ours, but they are all nice.

Grand Lake is a nice enough place, but there is no lake here: more like a swamp. Several air boats around and that tells what the locals think of the so-called lake. This place is also in the middle of nowhere. About 20 miles to the nearest respectable supermarket and Starbucks. The location was remote enough that our AT&T air card could not pick up a signal. The park provides Wi-Fi for a rather high price and that was totally unreliable. Sometimes it worked, but most often it was impossible to connect. The parks shows its address as Citra, Florida, not Orange Lake. We stayed here 5 nights waiting for the weather to clear in the northern Gulf area. We doubt if we will return. Rate reflects CampClub USA discount.

We stayed here five nights to visit friends in Tampa and to have a soup to nuts inspection and service performed on our motorhome. (By the way, we were very pleased with the service. It was prompt and very well done. The service adviser was excellent.) Park utilities, including Wi-Fi, were good. There isn't much privacy between sites, but the park was not nearly full and privacy was not an issue. The park provides free breakfast and lunch six days a week. The food is free and well, you get what you pay for. We have stayed here before several times and will return for service and for the location.

Delightful staff. Close to Marco Island and Naples. We were the only renter there during this off season. Since it is the off season, there was no security guard, but the gate is keypad operated. We didn't have any problem with the lack of a guard. Back in sites are plenty large for big rigs. Everything is nicely landscaped. Major drawback is lack of Wi-Fi except in the clubhouse. And, it's pretty expensive given the off season. We were there three nights and will return.

We stayed here five nights and were the only rig in the new part of the resort. At $70/night during the off season, that should not be a surprise. This is very nice park. Major drawback is the lack of Wi-Fi. Apparently, lot owners subscribe to internet service via their cable connection. It does not appear that there are any plans to establish Wi-Fi. The resort is gated, but there is no guard on duty during the off-season. Entry is by key card and we didn't have any problems. We have stayed here before several times and will stay here again.

It is pretty much a typical KOA. The sites are close together, with narrow roads and decent utilities. The WiFi unreliable - sometimes very good and other times not accessible. The staff was friendly. However, park was mostly empty and staff parked a travel trailer right beside us when four of five site separation would have been just as easy. There are no pull through sites. It is a Handy location for Daytona attractions. The sites are grass with concrete patios. We stayed here two nights. The rate reflects discount and tax.

This a very nice and convenient RV park. But it has drawbacks. The entrance and interior roads are tight. Low hanging tree branches make for difficult passage for big rigs. The trees also prevent use of satellite TV. The WiFi was not available at our site. And our AT&T wireless connection was very weak and slow. That's not the park's fault. The staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed five nights and would return because of the park's location.

If you must make an overnight stop in this area, this park is relatively quiet and inexpensive. Easy in and out with a great lake view! The utilities, including Wi-Fi, were good. Looks a little run down and lacks security, but we didn't have any problems.

Good place for an overnight stop. Narrow roads and fairly steep hills into the park. Suggest you look elsewhere if not confident in your ability to drive a big rig under those circumstances. That said, there were numerous big rigs here. Utilities seem OK. There is a charge for Wi-Fi. Rate reflects discount and tax.

If you love Elvis, you will love this park. Walking distance to Graceland. Good space for big rigs. Utilities, including Wi-Fi, all fine. Staff friendly. Park seems well managed. Good security. We stayed here five nights. Would return, but we have had our fill of Elvis. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and tax.

There is no reason to stay here unless you want to be close to downtown St, Louis. The sites are very tight for big rigs and sloped. Better have good levelers. Waste hookups are uphill from the rig. The owners are delightful and very helpful. Neighborhood is not the best, but there were not any problems.

I tried really hard to find something to criticize about this park. But I must concur with the previous three posts. Pull thrus are long - the longest I've come across. The sites are level and all utilities are as they should be. The place is extra good if you have kids. Be careful on entry. Some GPS units and the signs may take you to the main entrance of the amusement park. Ours did. Park security led us out, but the departure involved moving barriers and inconvenienced a lot of people. Otherwise no problems. We stayed here two nights and would return.

A delightful RV park. Its near major highways, hilly, tight and has only one paved road. The rest of the roads are gravel as are the sites. The ambiance is excellent and we enjoyed our overnight stay. There are many shade trees, but our site was clear so we had no satellite reception problems. One feature is the Friday evening bison burger cookout. Excellent! We would have stayed longer if space was available. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and tax.

This would be a fairly nice overnight campground were it not for the presence of quite a few fifth wheelers operated by workers who think it is great fun to run their pick-ups so as to raise great clouds of dust. This is not our kind of RV park. We were here one night and glad to leave. We will not return. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount and tax. We camped here in a Motorcoach.

This is a gravel and dust RV parking lot. Plenty of room for big rigs. Utilities, including Wi-Fi, were good. Staff was friendly. Highway noise not a problem for us. This is just an overnight stop off point. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and tax.

Tight, but big rig accessible. The sites are close together. It is a good location to visit downtown Salt Lake City. The utilities, including WiFi, were good. Staff seemed OK, but we were not led to our site. It appears to be a good place for kids. We stayed here two nights and would return if in the area. Rate reflects Value Card discount and tax.

Just fine for an overnight stop. Check in staff was friendly; there are good utilities and Wi-Fi. Sites are gravel with concrete pads. Enough room for big rigs. But sites are not level and are on a slope. If you have good levelers, it's not a problem. Club house has a book exchange and pool table. It's not a resort but a lot better than I expected given prior posts. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and tax. Rating weighted toward use as an overnight stop and not as a resort.

This is an excellent RV Park. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Sites are well laid out with plenty of room for big rigs. Roads are paved and sites are concrete. Sites are surrounded by artificial grass, which is a pleasant change from the usual gravel or sand. Nice picnic tables are at each site. Utilities are placed just right. Everything appears to be squeaky clean. Shade trees are still small and don’t provide much shade. I consider that a feature, not a fault because I like to my satellite TV signal. And we have very good HVAC. Location is not far off I-80, but highway noise is not a factor. Stores etc are nearby. Not walking distance for us, but some folks may enjoy the stroll. This is the highest rating I have given any park, so far. We would stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and tax.

A surly, arrogant and snippy check-in lady made a very poor first impression. On the other hand, its location, location and location. If you want a relatively secure park close to everything in the Bay Area, you don’t have many, if any, other choices. This is a very tight park for big rigs. There is not much room between sites. Awnings are out of the question, due to stated fire regulations that require at least 6 feet separation between rigs. I don’t think we had that much space between slide outs without adding awnings to the equation. The drive is paved, but the back in sites are large gravel. There are no pull-through sites. 50 amp, WiFi, sewer and water were very good. The rating ignores the poor check-in impression, discounts the tightness of the sites and is heavily weighted toward the location. We would stay here again because of the location. We stayed here for one week and the rate reflects the weekly rate including tax.

Very well kept fairly new park. Well planned and laid out sites. It has one area called battleship row for the big rigs. We chose not to stay in that area because we wanted to have our stern toward the afternoon sun. Wanted to avoid putting up the window coverings because of a relatively short stay and my gross indolence. Our site was a not a big rig site but worked just fine for us. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Good restaurant on site. We were there two nights and would return in a heartbeat. Park has a lot going for it.

This is an excellent park if you wish to be in Las Vegas during late June. Temp 100 degrees +. Sites are large, clean and everything is well maintained. They seem to have good security. They have an on site restaurant that provides adequate breakfast and dinner. Close to the Strip and provisioning is easy. A down and dirty casino is very nearby and you can lose there just as well as anywhere else. We stayed five nights. The rate reflects an average, including tax, because some of the daily rate was discounted at 10% while some were discounted at 20%.

Mostly small crushed rock and dust. Very tight pull through. Main slide out was against a tree with no room to move away from it. WiFi didn't work at our site. 50 amp iffy according to my multimeter. Staff OK. We stayed here two nights because we needed a lay day. Would avoid in the future if feasible.

Mostly all large crushed rock and dust. Big rig sites were large enough. 50 amp, water, WiFi all OK. Management friendly, but must question their judgment when they sent a tow of a disabled motorcoach right next to us. There were plenty of other sites available. The noise of a large diesel tow truck, flashing lights and spotlights was not a good experience. The "Cowboy Cookout" provides a decent steak dinner and breakfast. Otherwise not much to recommend it. We used it as on overnight stop - which was enough.

Interesting park because it consists of two sections, the old and the new. We stayed in the new that has very nice, wide concrete pads. I didn’t survey the old section so my comments and rating are based solely on the new section. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Sites are wide, level and well planned. For instance, the sewer fitting is low which lets gravity do its work quite well. Its nice to lift an empty drain hose. WiFi worked well. Close to I-40 but noise was not a factor. Perhaps due to the prevailing wind direction. I didn’t note any adverse factors and would stay here again. We stayed two nights and would have stayed longer if our schedule permitted.

Very wide, level concrete pads. Nice. No shade, but I believe shade is overrated anyway. It usually blocks the satellite TV reception or gets in the way of the slide-outs. The Amarillo area is windy and prone to thunderstorms at this time of the year. It’s windy enough that it’s not worth the risk to put awnings out. That’s not the park’s fault though. Appears to be well managed, neat and clean. I don’t rate anyplace a 10, so far at least, because I believe no place is perfect. I’m hard pressed to keep that rule here. So, I will be picky and note that they do not collect trash bags. You must drop them in the dumpster yourself. We are staying here two nights and would return without hesitation.

We stayed here two nights only because, at our age, we like to have at least a one-day lay over between runs. It's quiet here. Traffic noise from I-20 is not a factor and there is almost nobody in the park. Sites are tight for a big rig, gravel and very uneven surrounded by some grass and mostly dirt. Our automatic levelers gave up and we leveled manually. The WiFi did not reach to our site. We did have good shade, 50 amp and water pressure. The sewer hookups are, well, awful and should be upgraded. Satellite TV worked fine. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We will not stop here again.

We camped here two nights. Clean park, friendly staff but too near a major highway, so lots of traffic noise. OK for a short stop and re-provision of on board goods. But that's about it. Would stay here again in a pinch, but it would not be our first choice.

We stayed here three nights. Very nice place. Plenty of room to maneuver a big rig. Wi-Fi worked just fine for us. We had a pull-through with the afternoon sun on the street side, so lack of shade trees was not a problem. Staff business like, but friendly and helpful. We have stayed here before and will gladly do so again. Only major drawback is that it is a bit expensive. I suppose one pays a premium for location. Some excellent seafood restaurants nearby.

Well managed small and quiet park. Close to major highways and town. The owners are very helpful and delightful. Pull-thru sites are long enough for a big rig with toad. But if you have a door located forward, you will need to exit and enter from the grass area. Not a problem if dry. We found if we backed far enough to locate the door over the patio area, our electric cable could not reach the source. We are self contained and did not use the showers or baths. Overall impression is very good. We would certainly stay here again.
