Wide access roads. Friendly staff. Sites are dirt except for the premium sites which are concrete. Major percentage of permanent/seasonal are French Canadians both friendly/not friendly. "The Loop" is all French Canadians. The stench of sewage is disgusting, making sitting outside intolerable. Good location for beaches on Englewood and Boca Grande. Dog Park/beach at the animal shelter on San Casa and 7th Street on Boca Grande. Since the access roads are so wide there is no feeling of being intruded on. Until "Mr Stinky" is fixed, we will not be using this resort again.
If anyone is not sure of the campground description of "Resort", this is a perfect example. The one word to sum it up is "Idyllic". Most sites are owned and leased out for the season, many with tiki huts, cocktail bars, and barbecue ranges. People are friendly once you walk around or play golf on the fourteen hole golf course soon to be eighteen. Staff was friendly and helpful with our check in, and someone stopped by to say hi most days. Food stores, restaurants, cinemas, and shopping are less than three miles away along with four PGA golf courses. Friday night cocktail hour is a must to meet new friends over drinks. We'll get over the withdrawal symptoms to go back there next year.
Difficult to locate without GPS. No signs on 1A except for small road sign indicating a campground. Office staff was friendly and efficient. Cable service requires a channel box to receive stations and this is free. The problem is that all TV's will carry the same station in your RV unless you can find a way of getting behind each TV to connect a box. Close to Publix and restaurants. John Pennecamp State Park is a short ride away that take snorkeling and scuba trips out to the reef. The campground has a mix of permanent sites along with owner leased sites. Sites are wide, roads are narrow, and navigation is difficult since parking is allowed on both sides of the internal roadways. Site crews are diligent in leaf blowing. The start at eight in a morning using gas powered blowers. Pool is clean and tidy but the poolside furniture in need of replacing. Cycle rental and RV repair company are close by on Hwy 1. Everyone is friendly.
