Comments

Let’s begin with the positive on this park review! … I wanted a park right off of I-75 and this fit that bill. In fact, you see the interstate from the park. This may be a con for those who don’t tolerate road noise, but I don’t mind road noise for the most part, and I really was just looking for a place for a night or two, as I headed from the Panhandle of Florida to Miami.

Another positive: the worker who checked me in was very sweet and welcoming. The other RV parks I passed along 75 were booked, so to hear her say, ‘Come on in and we’ll take care of you’ was music to my ears.

I had full-hookups with cable, so that was nice! And as for shopping and restaurants — they’re all nearby and wonderfully convenient. (Had I wanted to, I could have walked to Cracker Barrel, which is a good thing as far as I’m concerned.)

But to be honest, that’s about all the good stuff. This is a dated and deteriorating RV park. The restrooms and showers were in bad shape and did not feel clean. (Though they do have a large, fairly clean laundry room.)

There is a mobile home park between it and I-75 and new construction (looked like apartment buildings) on the other side. I was near the mobile homes and there was quite a bit of noise coming from there.

I also found it deceiving to have a daily rate of $36 but then they add $4 per day for electric. They should just be upfront and say it’s $40/day.

All this said, this park fit the bill for what I wanted at the moment. I wanted to get off of the road and rest for a day or two. Which I happily did! But if you are looking for a quiet campground, or a park with nice restrooms, this isn’t it.

If you have stayed here, I would love to hear your take! Please let me know!
