Been staying here 3 years now, 6-7 times each year. Just became a Good Sam park. Some weekends during summer are usually pre-booked so plan accordingly. Early & late season stays have lower pricing and fewer amenities. Discount if you don't use a CC. We will be back!!
Stayed here several nights, hook ups vary. Thought we were in a 50amp site and it was a 30. No rhyme or reason which is where. Got $5 back for each night since 50amp is $35. Cable cut out for several hours on the most desired digital channels. Complained to office but they thought it was OK as the channel they were watching 1960's re-runs on was still on. Location is excellent for exploring the areas. Got to go to several 150 year old abandoned copper mines, etc., after getting advice from the locals, as to where to find the overgrown entrances. Neat. Don't expect too much in the way of groceries, etc., as the one store is really limited.
Stayed here one night late Sept 2012. No one in the office to take our $$ at arrival or the next day. Finally just before we were going to pull out and mail them a check they showed up. Had 4-5 other people approach us with the same problem. All arrived at or before 3pm the day prior. Most of us stayed in the area nearest the highway, as the rear side of the park where all the sites are, are all overgrown with big trees and hard to get a moderate/big rig size unit into.
Stayed one night at the end of Sept. Park was less than 1/4 full. Bring extra hook up supplies as the sites are all different and power, water, cable points vary. This was established as a public RV park decades ago and as such was not intended for big rigs.
Stayed here in early April for 10 days, park is as described in the last several reviews. Great value and huge lot sizes in comparison to the other 2 in the area. Major downer are the no-see-ums. If there is no breeze then they come out of the saw grass which surrounds the area. Have to lather on deet. Limited internet signal. Only over the air TV which changes by the minute. Even drove 65 miles to get a Wingman for our new RV but that barely improved it.
Older KOA convert. It is situated between I-75 and train tracks. Tight interior roads. Ground was quite soggy. Entrance/exit is on a hilly county road so get in and out with safety. Owner & dog escorted me to site. The owner very friendly despite other comments elsewhere.
Neighbors were long term residents sitting on their swing, getting trashed on a case o beer--yelling at their own dog to shut up. Hook ups not close; had to rig extensions. They charged me for 24 hr internet and didnt tell me that it expired at midnight. When I checked in at 7pm it is really only for 5 hours...ticked me off when I checked work e-mail just before leaving and was timed out. We try to stay at KOA's but if this is the new trend we will re-think our options!!!
Stayed in the overflow site, had to find a recently vacated site to dump. Only take cash or personal checks (like most of the south). Owner put our name on an orange cone to save the site for us as he had to go milk the goats. Has very strong water pressure and they warn you: so use a water restrictor valve. Located right off the Interstate, but road noise is less then other CG's.
Sites not level and muddy, but they had extra planks at the site if you didn't have enough. Was along the Interstate so expect road noise. Internet very unfriendly. We asked to fill our propane tanks at check in but he never came to the site to fill as he promised after his internet conference. No fuel or food at the exit so plan accordingly, next options south are heavy traffic areas BOL. Great shower rooms.
A former chain campground: needs some work, potholes in roads, etc. It is situated next to a large ORV use area, so be prepared for the noise. Encountered the Upper Peninsula (UP) bird (mosquito) in expected numbers, and a severe thunderstorm. We would return as it is near a lot of major natural attractions: such as the Pictured Rocks etc., and the beauty of the UP!!
Stayed for three days while exploring the Niagara Falls area. Sites drained poorly, were muddy and there was standing water on some. Mosquitoes were extremely abundant. Pool sanitation was very sketchy. Grand kids found dead floating animals, moles, toads etc each time they went down to use it. No stores in the immediate area so plan accordingly as it is about 15 minutes one way to the closest store.
Stayed here twice in August 2009 to and from Niagara Falls with 3 grand children. First time was good, the second time was bad. This is a very kid friendly park but be ready to shell out $$ for the activities. Problems are: a lot of the guests have no clue about campground etiquette and walk through your campsite, tie their dogs out on chains that reach into your site and won't clean up after their dogs, walk 5-6 abreast down the roads so you can't drive on them, children on bikes running into you or your vehicles, idiots burning their trash and plastics in the fire pits so it rained down on awnings. The second time we left early due to the above issues. I doubt we will return.
Campground is on a ridge overlooking I-75 so there is a lot of traffic noise. Sites are some of the most non level I have used. Had to have the back of the unit almost into road to not be going down hill. Would not go back unless there was no other choice.
Excellent customer service! We got delayed while enroute south due to snow storms and the manager allowed us to change our reservation dates. We asked about washing the salt off our truck and fifth wheel and he met us at the entrance with a new hose & sprayer and directed us to an area for washing so we didn't soak our camp site. Close to shopping at a Super Wal-mart so we could stock up before heading south to the Keys. Propane was an excellent price. Camp store needed re-stocking. We would go back.
Stayed here for two weeks in February 2010. Weather was unseasonably cold so we were not able to use the pool, beach etc except 2-3 times. Beautiful new park for self contained units only. Park managers screen potential guests so there are no problems with junky units or questionable guests. About half of the guests were there for several month blocks. Not a cheap place to stay but nothing in the Keys is cheap. You get what you pay for and GKRV delivers. Would like to go back in a couple of years but doubt if it will be affordable by then.
Entrance is tricky to find, we went past it twice. Heavy traffic area, so it was not pretty trying to turn around. Entrance signs are small in comparison to the other commercial signage in the immediate area. It is located off a service road behind the Bob Evans restaurant. We were anticipating a nice dip in the heated pool only to be told at check in that it would be about a week before it was warm enough according to their standards. Since the park was full, you would think they would spend the extra $$ to heat the pool to meet "their standards". Sites were were quite tight. We had to jockey to get our 32' fifth wheel in to hook up to the utilities and open the living room slide, but then the paved sidewalk was not aligned. Has friendly neighbors, decent cable TV and Wi-Fi. We were here two nights.
Stayed here on our trip south to the Keys. Encountered a foot of snow in the park and 7 degree overnight temperatures. Manager warned us the road was icy (it is a county road which changes to a private road). We were able to navigate and park, but it was sketchy. The bath house was heated and clean. It was OK for an overnight stay but we listened to expressway traffic all night while we shivered.
We stayed here in mid February 2010 when we got snowed off I-75 while SB to Florida. More than 1/2 of the sites were long term with only handful available for overnight guests. But it fit our needs so we could wait for the roads to clear off. The name says it all, Over-Niter.
