One of the best parks in the area of Gulf Shores, Al. This small park is west of Foley, Al about 7 miles and north of Magnolia Springs, Al about 1 mile. The park is about equal distance to Gulf Shores and Fair Hope. Reported to originally have been part of the RV park next door with the intent of selling lots (rather than rentals). It currently has a combination of privately owned lots (21) and unsold lots (20) for rent. Nice club house, laundry, showers, pool, and all concrete pads & patios. The property has been well maintained and has nice landscaping of grass, shrubs, and trees. The park manager (Jim) is also the HOA president and is very pleasant and helpful. The host was was also pleasant and helpful. Internet work very good and had two antennas in the park to aid in signal strength. This is a very affordable park by the month, quiet, clean, well managed, and is great to rent for winter stays 1-3 months (or purchase for yearly stays). Propane is available in Magnolia Springs at a reasonable cost. Note: No web site for Magnolia RV Park II. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Please note that the park is under new management. We were very happy here in our stay. Speed bumps are in many of the campgrounds to keep speeders down and we did not have any problems with them. Clean bathrooms, laundry and clubhouse. Close to many attractions and Mobile for Mardi Gras. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The price and reviews of 'this' park looked good so we drove the dinghy out for a look. That's the first thing to be careful of. Our GPS had us going down a dirt road when there is paved access to the park. Which brings up the second issue. We were actually going to look at the park next door but the dirt road lead us to this park first. So we went to it first. Immediately upon arrival we were met by the host, a great guy. We reserved a site for 2 weeks on the spot. Which brings up the next issue. Between that visit and our arrival with the RV, SPEED MOUNTAINS were put in. I understand the unfortunate need for speed bumps, and have no problem with them, but these were excessive. On the two lane interior roads, they cut diagonally across. This essentially rocks your coach not just up and down, but side to side. On one of the single lane roads, they may well be hazardous. One of the other guests expressed concern about whether or not his raised jacks had adequate clearance to get over them. Internet access was good. No cable TV, but no obstructions for satellite. It is a great central location for all that the surrounding areas have to offer. But, seriously, the speed bumps have to go. They are bad enough, that when I had to leave the park to have some warranty work done, we went to a different, more expensive park rather than endure those monstrosities. The host gets a 10. The park an 8. The bumps a 0. That averages out to a 6. And that is an absolute shame. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We will be back for Winter stay. Great quiet park 12 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. NOTE; WEBSITE IS DOWN RIGHT NOW AND EMAILS CAN BE SENT TO: firstname.lastname@example.org $275 a month for 6 month Winter Rentals plus electric. We camped here in a Motorhome.
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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent the winter here. 12 miles from Gulf, close to shopping, dining, medical facilities, what a clean and friendly park. Great amenities and get together. We are going back for this winter. Warm sunny days, you can wash your rig, concrete patio and pad, grassed lot are BEAUTIFUL. We camped here in a Motorhome.
