We were full timers and the first 2 years were ok. The owner has no guest service experience. They need a professional management group to manage this park. My issues were that the staff did not know how to handle credit card transactions nor could she count cash. She voided my card twice and did not give me the copies. (Cards were canceled and replaced upon speaking to my bank.) Lawns were not mowed we were required to "ask" for mowing. I was also bit over 60 times by fire ants due to grass being unmowed. Laundry rooms are filthy. Park floods yearly and you become trapped in the park. The staff ran the golf carts and Huskavarna 42 inch cutting deck lawnmower at high rates of speed using my vehicle and the oak trees as their personal obstacle course. Plus, the minute they got the Huskavarna on the roads then they would turn on the blade and begin throwing gravels toward the vehicles, park models and RVs. After complaining to the office personnel I waited 2 months for the owner to come to our RV to speak to us. When this did not occur it became a confrontation and it turned ugly quickly. When the owner insinuated that I was a liar regarding my laundry which was destroyed that was it, I blew up, told him off and we left. The maintenance man is the only upside to this park. We would have stayed on if these issues had been corrected. - KarenB46143

Rate reflects 7 nights. This park is real nice. Sites are spacioustill, have a concrete patio and a small picnic table. I didn't use the bathroom but peeked in on them...clean but tight and aged; could use some updating. Laundry facility is clean but machines looked aged. Only $1.25 to wash and 25 cents/10 minutes to dry. Water pressure was fine. No cable TV or free wi-file. OTA stations were spotty. Many full-time and park models but pretty empty during my visit. No pull-thru sites and owner came over and backed my unit in! Very nice clubhouse and pool. Guess they do quite a bit with theiron winter/seasonal guests. I would come back again if in this area. - RVingMe

This is a very well maintained park. Nice clubhouse and pool. The downside to this park is the management (owners). Each of them are very unfriendly and sometimes even rude. A few of the long term residents confirmed our feelings.
They have a no dog rule, but it would be good idea to double check. We did hear a dog bark a few times and saw two dogs that were being kept inside the RV, out of site. - B&S

Sites are W/E only but they have a dump station in each RV section. The electric was good and the water quality was OK. I think it had a slight taste to it. They have a huge picnic area along the water with boat ramps and an area for swimming. They also have a few other picnic areas with restroom facilities and playgrounds. Main thing to be aware of is the Noseeums. They bite like crazy and seem to be around most of the day. As this was a county park, it was quite large and I found a picnic area to walk in and let the dogs loose. - Kerch Family

This is a real lovely county park on the bay we enjoyed our stay.. This is a no reserve campground so first come first serve. It was pretty empty during the week and about ¾ full on the weekend (most weekends they fill up) so come early to get a nice spot. The west campground has 30/50 amp service while the east camp only has 30AMP, no sewer in either camp but convenient dump station in each camp. All back-in sites with plenty of room to maneuver are on packed sand and little grass so it can get muddy during rain and you will track in a lot of sand in the RV. No vegetation between sites and very few trees for shade. They back up to the creeks but the mangroves block the view and have a picnic table and fire ring. Most sites are pretty long can easily fit the big RVs but some shorter sites as well. A lot of sites were very wide; many people had their RV on 1 side with a boat and truck next to the RV with plenty of room. All were relatively level but I would bring a couple of blocks to level; I needed a couple to level nicely. Satellite worked fine, OTA had a lot of channels as well. No Wi-Fi but hotspot and cell phone worked ok. Restrooms were Spartan, somewhat clean showers had plenty of hot water. There are plenty of pavilions, a beach for swimming, fishing, canoe rentals, a big boat ramp and several playgrounds for the kids. The really big problem in May (all summer really) is the bugs no-see-ums and mosquitoes, they will carry you away especially from sunset to sunup, so bring a lot of bug spray. We will camp here again but during the winter, hopefully the bugs are not as bad then. - KandP

Just spent a week here in site #69 in East side. West side is closed for utility upgrade. This is a no reserve campground, so if you want a waterfront site arrive Monday through Thursday. It fills up on Fridays for the weekend. No camp hosts to clean up this week, so the bath houses were dirty. The rangers just did a resupply of paper. There is good fishing here, which is our main reason for camping here. There is a security gate. You must arrive before 6 pm to get a campsite. There is no refund so we pay for just 2 or 3 nights at a time. We had lots of mosquitoes the first night, but once the planes sprayed, they were gone on day 3. Lots of grass and some sites have shade trees. No privacy between sites. - June from Savann ahb

Nasty Place, Stay Away! We never even stayed there because of what happened when we pulled in! We arrived at night and my wife had to use the restroom so I dropped her off and went to check in. Three minutes later she came running up to me and said, "we are leaving, this place is disgusting!" She said the man who lived next to the bathroom, a huge man with no shirt on and a ton of junk in his lot, looked her up and down as she was entering the restroom. Then, while she was in there, she heard him make comments about her nice body to his friends and that he'd like to "do her" (he used a much more explicit term.) I guess there were a bunch of them drinking with this guy and so sex talk started. My poor wife was shaking. While she was being sexually harassed in the bathroom, I had driven around and the place is a DUMP and so we got the heck out of there. Lot's of long timers with junk in the yard, broken down old cars, etc. No pool, narrow lots and in a bad neighborhood. Seriously? HOW this place is listed on Good Sam is beyond me. To make matters worse, we stopped at a 7-11 about a block away to park for a moment to find another RV park to go to. A guy came up to our window and asked what kind of high we were looking for. Stay away...nasty people, nasty place!I wouldn't take children either...I can't imagine what I would have done if that guy had approached my daughter. So if your travel with your wife and kids, find a park without perverts and drunks. - Travelin Mac

If you're looking for Yogi or KOA, this ain't it. These people live here and work hard and keep to themselves and are polite enough. Our fiver barely fit in our site, next to an even bigger fiver. But the staff is nice enough and it's very convenient to a mall and several other shopping centers. There was a hole on our site when we moved in. We mentioned it to an office worker and there was a guy here with a wheel barrow full of mulch that day. And they were trying to catch the guy who wasn't cleaning up after his dog. A fair price for a convenient stay in season. - melissabrvs

I Do Not Recommend this RV park to anyone. First of all it's located in a really sketchy part of Tampa. We were there for 3 months. Our first month, during the daylight hours, we caught 3 local kids stealing one of our bikes, got it back that time, but a week later, they came back and cut the locks off both our bikes and took both of them. These kids continued to come back over and over. Also managing to steal other RVers bikes.
When it first happen, the acting manager said and I quote, "I can't be outside 24/7." Excuse me? Im sorry, but that is the wrong answer to tell your customers who pay quite a bit to stay in your not very attractive RV park. The people who run this place really don't care if anyone steals your stuff. I didn't even get an I'm sorry that happened to you.
This place is not your typical RV park. There are long term residents, its across the street from a family dollar. Its near Busch Gardens and a lot of businesses. Thats about the only thing it has going for it. The bathrooms are ok, however the stall doors are right in your face when you sit down. The laundry room is located in between the bathrooms. 2 out of 4 washers don't work and 2 of 3 dryers do work. There's no pool either. They also charge for electric.
I will never ever stay here again. If you decide to stay, its def going to be at your own risk and don't have any expectations. - Ellie Q

We ended up at this park late on a Saturday evening. There are a lot of permanent sites and one of those people helped us into an overflow spot until morning. The staff was pleasant and moved us to a regular site the next day. They have a very nice pool and paved streets. We stayed a total of 3 nights. The club house has great pool tables and exercise equipment. - queenie2014

This is a big park, most of it is park models and mobile home units. There are some spots available for motorhomes and fivers. Lots to do. Nice for walking and riding bikes. The staff and residents are friendly. I stayed there one week, used the time there to scout for other places for next winter. - retiredblade

They bill themselves as an RV resort, yet 90% of this park is for mobile homes and park models. It is also more of a retirement village than a campground. It's totally sold out to snowbirds in winter and they make a little extra money renting empty spaces out to transient RV's off season. They have ton's of activities here and the 2 clubhouses seem to have something going on every day. They have an excellent walking trail that features alligators. It's about 2 miles to a gas station and 6 miles to a grocery store or fast food. It's located close to I-75 and you can drive to St Petersburg in about 20 minutes. - mouldsfn

Great deal for Passport America! This is a friendly, older, 55+ retirement mobile home/RV community that has an area set aside for shorter term stays. Pull-through sites have different things available, like some have picnic tables, some have concrete pads. All sites have water/sewer/electric, and some have shade trees, & all are very sandy. Lovely heated pool area. Restrooms are dated but clean. 2 nice laundry areas are available. Bugs are abundant (ants, skeeters, gnats, no see-ums). Many OTA TV stations. We would come back! - R&S

This is the most wonderful park we've ever stayed at. Clean, wonderful people, endless activities. We've been coming to this park for 5 winters and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. - arespiratory

Yes, most of the campers were friendly, however, many of the permanent residents were not - they did not appreciate the "outsiders". Noisy park - every day. Great dance hall - dancing every two weeks! Decent WiFi in the clubhouse - none at campsites. Campsites very tight and rough and dirty. Water condition - terrible! Has anyone heard the term "volume" (is all that matters - NOT the pressure!) Crazy! For weeks, pressure was only 35 psi. After complaining (polite discussions with owner), they made some improvement - should have been done long before - pressure went up to about 50 psi - still minimal. Been to a dozen or more other parks in Florida - private and public - all at least 55 psi and usually 60+ psi. And, the water smells bad! Glad to be gone and will not return! BTW - anyone 50+ years of age can attend their dances ($5 per person). Stay someplace else - lots of other choices. - wjhgolf4
