Claims to be big rig friendly, but low hanging limbs, hard to get into sites and lots of pot holes. Rangers are very rude, not people persons. But with that being said, lovely sites on the water, nice walking/biking paths, beaches and picnic areas. And a couple of tolls to pay.
We loved this park and campground. Nice paved roads, spacious campsites, and friendly rangers that keep things under controlled. Lot of places to fish, miles of roads to walk, nice picnic areas, and immaculate bathhouses. Since it's on the water (which is wonderful) don't forget your bug spray.
Beautiful waterfront sites. Some pull-through sites. Pet and non-pet areas. Quiet during the week. Sometimes noisy on weekends after the rangers leave. The rude ones don't follow the rules. Playgrounds for the kids, rent a kayak or bicycle, 2 fishing piers, the beach, bays and channels for fishing, a fort, miles of bike and walking trails, stores, snack bar, boat ramp, washer and dryer at each bathhouse, dump stations, and gorgeous sunsets. 14 day stay limit.
Rate based on a weekly rate. Park is right on the Banana River. There is a smell, but there's also a smell at Manatee Hammock and Patrick AFB. Must be the area. The park is big. There are fishing piers at the water-side sites, and a large fishing pier for the other campers. They have a nice boat ramp and boat slips, and 2 canoe launches. No sewer or cable. You can see the cruise ships docked at Port Canaveral. Birds, seagulls, pelicans, dolphins, manatees, alligators, turtles, are some of the wildlife we have seen. We will camp here again. There's a lot to do and see in the area including Kennedy Space Center, Port and Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Village and Beach, Titusville all of which are less than a 30 minute drive.
The manager tried to make us happy, but barking dogs in front and back of us tend to make us unhappy. The cable didn't work. The facilities were not clean. Trains, planes, and automobiles but we got use to that. Could not get use to barking dogs. The fishing pier across from park and a boat ramp 1 1/2 miles away were the only good things about this park.
We have spent 2 years at Tanglewood but will never come back. We were told we could not have our boat or anything else on our lot. It's double standards when the president of the community can have his motorhome on his lot but no one else can have campers, trailers, car dollies, boats, or any thing extra on their lots. There are plenty of other places around the Vero Beach area that welcome campers and their toys.
Rate based on seasonal monthly. Cable available through Comcast with a hookup fee. We are back for our second season. The park is very quiet. A lot cleaner than last year, and more RV'ers this year. This is a great place for your base station for visiting the treasure coast. A lot of activities for seniors in Vero Beach and the surrounding towns.
What a gem. Across the street from the ocean, and the bay right on the base. Host did everything he could to keep us from moving, but we did not have reservations so we had to move once while we were here. I would have given all 5 stars but the laundry area was not clean and some of the facilities were not offered in the winter months, like the gym. We will stay at this facility again when in the area.
This park is extremely clean. Beautiful sites set in a woodsy environment, with canoe/kayak trails in the marsh heading to the Tangier Sound. Beautiful sunsets, and biking distance to Crisfield, a watermans delight. Good places to crab and fish. A playground for the little ones, and piece and quiet for the older ones. A grocery store nearby and plenty of restaurants in the area. If it had full hookups I'd give this park a 10.
This is a unique state park with wild ponies and sika deer living on the island. There is horse manure, flies, mosquitoes, ticks, high grass, stickers, and sand spurs. But you are in preserved natural surroundings with clean hot showers, sand dunes, beaches, nature centers, and a resort town 15 minutes away. Reservations are hard to get for the weekends from Spring to Fall. If you get the chance, I highly recommend this park at least once for the experience. But most people fall in love with the island and keep coming back year after year.
The road leading to the campground is dirt and is full of potholes. The campground road themselves are dirt. Old rundown campers fill the campground giving it a run down look. Managers do not manage very well. Load music is played, dogs bark all day, and the police were called to the campground on the 13th in the AM hours. At 4AM music was being played loudly from a campers car close to our camper. We reserved a month, 6 months in advance, left after 14 days, but was refused a refund. The office smelled of cigarettes, and washer/dryers are located outside. We will not stay at this campground again.
This is a 55+ resident owned park, so you cannot expect resort amenities. The park is quiet, dogs allowed but behaved. The swimming pool is heated, and clean. There is a clubhouse and activities going on for all to enjoy. If you are a young couple with kids this is not the place for you. But if you are retired and a snow bird this is the perfect place. The river is 5 minutes and the beach is about 8 minutes away. There is shopping, urgent care, and Walgreen's within 2 blocks. A great place for retirement.
