We stayed at a free site in the campground while waiting for prep work on our new coach. It is a nice amenity compliments of LazyDays. A fine back in site. Plenty of length for our 38' coach but not quite enough for the tow car, which we parked at an angle across the front of the site. The access road was comfortably wide, so there seemed to be no problem with this arrangement. Took advantage of the wonderful driver confidence course offered by LazyDays, free to registered campers, don't miss it! Free daily newspaper delivered to site, very nice pool/hot tub, pleasant little Exit 10 pub on site at the campground, and complimentary simple breakfast or lunch in the LazyDays cafeteria as well. The well equipped laundry room offers machines which accept credit cards -- no jars of quarters required! Complimentary Wi-Fi that worked well. Attractive, well manicured park. Wander through all the new and previously owned rigs at the LazyDays complex that are open for your inspection. No sales pressure, but when you find the perfect one, it's hard to resist! We will definitely return.
Very nice, clean, and well manicured park. Stayed two nights and took a pleasant day trip to Jekyll Island. Enjoyed the area very much. The park's developers have done a good job of maximizing available space. We did think the turns between lanes were a bit tight for a 40' MH with our Jeep in tow, but definitely doable. The paved sites, though somewhat narrow, have hedges between them and are very attractive. Certainly big rig friendly. The park seems to attract rallies as well. We parked our Allegro Bus and realized we were in the thick of similar Tiffin rigs who had just finished an 80 coach rally. The next day a separate Class B rally opened. Easy on/easy off I-95. Follow the directions on the park's web site. We will be happy to return.
Great stop for an overnight stop off I-95, just a half mile from the exit ramp. Pleasant and friendly greeting and escort to site. Interior roads and sites are gravel and our site was perfectly level, which we needed since we were having a problem with our jack assembly. Gravel portion of the sites were bordered with railroad ties, with plenty of room between sites. Nice area to walk dogs. All services were fine. Will return with pleasure.
We chose a site on the front row but not waterfront at a rate of $49 if staying four nights or more. With four slides and a 38' coach, our fully paved site #117 was tight but cozy and heavily shaded. Dogs are welcome but hard to find a place to walk them when the park is mostly full; a dedicated dog walk or dog park would really help. It is a lovely park, as many others have mentioned in previous reviews; chilly in early January but that was to be expected. Tip -- When you arrive, expect to wait a while for a sufficient break in the opposing traffic on 278 (William Hilton Parkway), in order to make the left turn across the highway in your rig, turning onto Jenkins Road where the park is located. Similarly, when driving from the park toward Hilton Head proper, making the left turn from Jenkins Road back onto 278 is not easy, with heavy traffic in both directions. A trip light at this intersection would really be helpful. Maybe the park could work to convince local authorities of the need here. We enjoyed our visit and plan to return.
I would call this a middle of the road campground, not memorable, fine for an overnight stop off 301 but a bit depressing. Nice front desk staff. We were escorted to our site at one end of a long row with a few other transients. Most other rigs seemed long term. Fire ants at site; be careful walking dogs. Roads through the campground are one way, we were happy to have an escort. Site was unlevel but not badly off. Would return if in the area but only for overnight.
We have stayed at this park often while traveling in both directions on I-95. It is a reliable overnight stop. On this visit we stayed two nights waiting for high winds to abate, after a white knuckle drive only from the Richmond area; very glad to get there after deciding that stopping early in the day was the better part of valor. Most sites are gravel and level, certainly long enough for our 38' motor home plus toad without unhooking (office says 65'). We had an end site on one of the first rows of gravel sites which featured an outdoor gazebo; I understand they charge extra for these gazebo sites in warm weather, but not in December. Lovely, spotless rest rooms in the main building; showers are modern with glass doors. Did not see/use the laundry. There are seasonal sites around the perimeter of the park, as well as paved sites closer to the clubhouse; we have never been assigned one of those at the standard rate. Very friendly and helpful staff. Evidently staff has a view of the campground by camera; the lady at the front desk was worried about our elderly neighbor should he decide to drive in such high winds. We assured her we had already spoken to him and convinced him to stay another night. I am sure we will visit this park again many times in the future.
We stopped here for an overnight on our way south. Pleasant enough staff; were escorted to our site which was fortunate because it is a confusing layout, particularly at dusk when we arrived. My impression was lots of thick gravel -- the roads and the sites -- and not a lot of grass to find an area for our two small dogs to use. Quite a few seasonal campers around the perimeter of the park, not unkempt and looked like contractors staying in the area. There was a good bit of highway noise as you are very close to I-95, but that usually never bothers us. All services worked fine, and our site required very little leveling. Bath house was older but clean. Convenient though a bit pricey for a simple overnight, but we were happy to get there after a long day of packing up and getting on the road for the winter. Easy on, easy off I-95. We would definitely return.
We were here for the Christmas holiday visiting family in North Myrtle Beach, and found this beautiful park through an internet search. Off the beaten path, it is still within 20 minutes of all the beach action. Our huge waterfront site #9 overlooked the clubhouse and lovely lake with its 1 mile paved walking trail, but there is not a bad site in the park that we could find; all are spacious, and the only difference in price seems to be distance from the clubhouse and water. The laundry room had plenty of good quality machines, and the adjacent rest rooms were new and spotless. The large fitness center had all the exercise equipment you could want. The spacious office has a small store with some RV supplies. Areas for car and RV washing are provided. The very friendly and helpful staff told me they now have a total of 60 snowbirders who winter over and meet for coffee each morning in the clubhouse. There is daily trash pickup in front of your site. We loved it here and look forward to returning.
We enjoyed two weeks at this park, which is actually located 14 miles south of the downtown Clermont area at the intersection of FL 27 and 192. Our original reservation was for a standard site using the Encore "Ready, Camp, Go" card. Standard sites are unpaved and in most cases far from pools and clubhouse, plus we saw plenty of fire ants in those sites. After checking out other possible sites, management helped us upgrade to a lovely paved, partly shaded site close to the pool and laundry room. Great neighbors, many of whom told us they have been coming to this park for years, and it is the people that keeps them coming back. Location is excellent, within one mile of a Walmart, and a Publix just across the street, with Disney a mere 6 miles down the road. Lots of good restaurants in the area too, as one heads toward Orlando on Route 192. We understand the park offers activities in season, but they are not well publicized. We walked the park each morning with our dogs, great exercise and plenty of friendly company. Recommendations: the pool by the laundry room closes too early; supposed to close at dark but the closed sign was usually up by 5:00 or 6:00 P.M. Laundry room is too small for the size of the park. Adding another laundry area near the clubhouse to serve the other side of the park would be a good investment. Thinking ahead to future years, we spent an entire day checking out the various parks in the area, and concluded there is only one other besides Lake Magic that we would possibly consider. We will definitely return.
This is a mixed use park, primarily manufactured homes with RV sites sprinkled among them. First, the good. The residents of the park are very friendly. Lots of activities in season with one or more activity directors. The park surrounds a small lake, and the walk around the park is about 1.1 miles, making for a pleasant walk or bike ride. Park is close to a Walmart, Cracker Barrel, and just a few miles from Anna Maria Island. The bad: Sites are small and unlevel, even the "elite" sites on the lake. No-see-ums are so thick that you cannot sit out and enjoy your site. Standard sites are very close to I-75, mostly dark and gloomy, and the highway noise is aggravating if not worse. Both laundries had broken machines (even the small secondary laundry was down to one washer) which were not repaired in the 2 weeks we were there. A horde of screaming children took over the smaller pool (I counted 14 -- mind you, this is a very small pool) on both days I attempted to enjoy it, with virtually no parental supervision, and no lifeguard. Evidently there are a number of young families living year round at the park. There are several other parks to choose from in the area; we will look elsewhere.
We stay at this wonderful RV park several times a year since it is only 2 hours from home. I last reviewed it in 2010 and there have been upgrades -- a fence has been added at Bark Beach between the dog area and the "people" area of the beach, a good thing -- tends to keep the dogs together in one section -- and they have a ball! More rental cottages in the Island Oasis section were added this year. Front desk personnel get better every year -- kudos -- and the workers who help with so many things in the campground are always a pleasure. The Jackspot bar seems well received and many people have commented on the good food offered at the cafe. Happy to note that the pools are open much later in the season than other campgrounds -- this year closing about October 1. Dog owners seem religious about picking up after their pets, and the dog friendly policies of the campground are appreciated by everyone. We are just completing a two week fall stay. The rate of $71 per night is mitigated by the two free nights allowed per week at this time of the year. Already planning our 2013 visits. A great park, enjoy!
Although quite a distance from I-295, after which one travels through Brunswick and Bath, Maine, this park is worth the time. The park takes no credit cards, bring cash. Our rate reflects Good Sam discount. Discount also applies to AAA members. We are in the open big rig section, where the road and sites are graveled and nearly level, with a small deck and picnic table alongside most. Large combo rigs (motor home and trailer) can easily be accommodated. The pull through sites are narrow but long; however, the outdoor decks are staggered, creating a more open feel since you are not parked directly alongside your neighbors. Back in sites around the perimeter are easy to navigate and have more room between them. Sites for smaller RVs, in another area of the park, are shaded and private. Each site has its own trash can, picked up daily. A small pond a few steps away is filled with ducks. Everyone, including the staff, seems friendly and helpful. The park is just a few minutes from Boothbay Harbor with its large assortment of interesting shops and restaurants. Lots to do even on rainy days. We would definitely return.
We customarily stay at Bar Harbor campground but this year they were packed, nothing reasonable available for our 38' motor home, so we made a change and are glad we did. We have been at Narrows Too nearly two weeks thus far. Our rate of $51 is based on a weekly rate of $360 for a medium-priced site -- reasonable for area, our site not on the water but with a partial water view. Add a $3/day resort fee plus taxes. Attractive, wide open park, great for big rigs. Mostly open sites but a few shaded available. Some cabins and trailer homes for rent too. For a really big rig towing a car/motorcycle trailer, you can be accommodated here. Our site is nearly level and adjacent to a large grassy area, convenient for our two small dogs! Have enjoyed meeting friendly people, staff very helpful and pleasant. Not crowded. Clean, well equipped laundry room -- a bit pricey at $2.50/wash and $2.00/dry, but plenty of machines. Nice heated pool with plenty of lounge chairs. Very close to local lobster pounds, located just outside the causeway to MDI. About a 15 minute drive to downtown Bar Harbor and close to Ellsworth with good grocery stores and a Walmart super center. We like it here and plan to return!
The rate shown includes taxes and a Good Sam discount--high season. We were told additional discounts were available for certain service personnel -- medical, military, etc. Our first visit to this campground for two nights. First, the good. Location is great. About 20 minutes from the casinos at Harrington/Dover and 18 miles in the other direction from Rehoboth Beach. The staff at check-in was very friendly and helpful. It was not difficult to find our site, which was an "upgraded" back-in site along the perimeter of the park. Ours required extra cable length and water hose, since every other site shares these services with the adjacent site, but we had been warned about this and were prepared in advance. Now, the bad. The sites are gravel, extremely unlevel, and so narrow that the tires on one side of our motor home were just barely on the gravel and those on the other side were on the grass. Both the motor home alongside us and our own had both our front tires quite far off the ground in order to level our rigs. Cable television channels are extremely limited, no networks, etc. The front desk staff told us they were even having trouble with the few stations they were supposed to have. Fortunately, we have satellite. The campground was not full, even on the weekend in season, but it is obvious they have plenty for children to do. We were far enough away that the children's activities did not impact us. Pool was busy over the weekend but thinned out Sunday afternoon. Basically, this campground is a mixed bag. We do plan to return, the location is great for us, but it is pricey for what you get. Sites urgently need upgrading, more gravel, leveling, etc. Did not use bathhouses or laundry so cannot comment.
We have been searching for a spot near Cambridge, MD and found this "mom and pop" campground on the internet. They do not have a website but the following web address gives an aerial photograph: http://marinas.com/view/marina/5080_Madison_Bay_Campground_%26_Marina_MD_United_States There are about 8 transient sites which are situated in the right side of the photograph near the marina slips. The remainder of the sites are seasonal. There is no shade and water/electric sites only, but the dump out station is easily accessible and certainly adequate. We did not use the bath houses or laundry so cannot comment. There is an excellent small restaurant and bar on site with local crab and seafood dishes as well as steaks, hamburgers and sandwich items, open for lunch and dinner. Call ahead for a reservation at the campground. When you arrive, go to the R&R Restaurant and one of the very friendly bartenders or wait staff will direct you to a site. This is a simple campground with a nice water view. We were there for the Eagleman half triathlon in nearby Cambridge, enjoyed our visit, and plan to return.
We were happy to locate this park which is open all year and very close (about 6 miles) from Harrington Casino, also about 20 minutes from Dover Downs. Very friendly and welcoming staff. The owner led us to our site #48. Simple but clean rest rooms with showers, heated by an in-wall propane heater, cool but not cold in late December. Both 30 and 50 amp sites available. Plenty of trees and fallen leaves on the ground. Sites and road are graveled. Our site #48 reasonably level. The office is not always staffed, call and leave message with approximate time of arrival and someone will get back to you and can meet you when you arrive. We opted to stay an extra day and simply put our daily fee in the mail slot by the front door to the office as the manager directed. You are in the country here but not far from an excellent large diner (Rudy's) at the junction of Routes 14 and 13, and there is a Food Lion supermarket in the same area. About 20 seasonal rigs were at the park for the winter, mostly tagalongs and 5th wheels. Most owners are working on a contract basis in the local area and seemed quite friendly. Only one other transient rig at the time we were there. Location is perfect if you like the casino. We will definitely return.
We have stayed in this park for the past two years during the big RV show in Hershey. This year the campground was completely sold out, evidently due to a Pleasure Way rally as well as those of us attending the show. Sites are not wide so during the show dates, things did feel pretty tight -- but pleasant and friendly neighbors made for a good experience. We stayed an extra night on Sunday when the park was almost empty, and enjoyed the beautiful and peaceful feeling of a fall afternoon under the trees in a rural area. About 20 miles to Hershey -- a local small grocery story is just down the street -- and relatively easy on/off from I-78 and I-81. We enjoy this campground and will definitely return.
We love this small campground -- this was our third visit -- a good base to go spend your money at LL Bean and the many outlets in the area. Wonderful, friendly people -- the manager and her team make you feel right at home. We like to request the overflow space in front of the office -- water and electric (50 amp) only, but the rest rooms and showers are spotless and only a few steps away, with lots of little amenities for guests. Very nice small laundry room at $1.75 per wash or dry. Not many transient spaces here, mostly friendly seasonals -- call in advance if possible. We will be back.
We enjoy this campground very much and return once or twice a year for two or three weeks. Contrary to a previous reviewer, we find there are plenty of level sites for big rigs. We prefer the WES sites at the rear of the campground overlooking the water and the blueberry field. However, this year we moved for a couple of days to one of the X sites near the office during tropical storm Irene, where we felt sheltered from the wind. The lower sites are not level but with a little effort, they become satisfactory -- and the advantage is 50 amp service for a big rig. I always rate this campground five stars, but this year I feel compelled to comment about the general rudeness of the worker who chastised a very nice couple in a very humiliating way about a few barks (just yips, really) from their dog. It was totally uncalled for and made a number of us who overheard the exchange feel angry and uncomfortable. I have met this same couple at the campground in previous years and have always found them to be courteous and responsible when it comes to controlling their dog -- but I doubt they will return in the future. Really a shame and I hope the management of the park takes note.
We are fortunate this campground is located close to home and only a 2 hour drive for a weekend getaway. We like the nicely paved Club Castaways section in spring and fall because it seems to cater more to us quiet "snowbird" types who don't have families, but that is just a matter of preference. Children are a joy and they are everywhere in the park having a wonderful time. A great little beach on property which gives a beautiful view of Assawoman Bay; also the "Bark Beach" area adjacent to the Island Oasis where family dogs can enjoy the beach area as well. Prices at the park go up dramatically in summer, as do golf rates at the nearby Eagles Landing course, which is challenging and beautiful. This is a great campground, enjoy!
Extremely friendly and helpful people at check-in. We stayed in a water and electric site for one night as no full hookups were available. Site was sandy with lots of tree roots and tall trees, close to the pool, which seemed mostly unused. Not a busy park, but located close to Freeport and the many outlets. Although clean, the bath houses were old, had tissue paper thin walls, and an old washing machine and dryer were located outside the bath under an overhang. Full hookup sites were located around the bath house in the rear of the park. Narrow, tight dirt roads into campground area. A nice touch was the floral planters with hummingbird feeders at the entrance to the water/electric sites.
We really like this campground and try to visit more than once a year. When you arrive, if you don't get the type of site you wanted, just wait until the next morning and watch for those that are opening up. Put a chair or a "TAKEN" sign (available at the office) on the new site and move your rig immediately. We like the sites at the "back" of the campground overlooking the water, near the laundry and huge wild blueberry patch. There are nice pull through sites near the office, but we have found these are far from level and often require extra blocks. Pool is advertised as "heated" but always very chilly. Bring your own beach chair to the pool; there is almost no seating available otherwise. The price for the park is very reasonable for the area; it is a short drive to Acadia National Park and downtown Bar Harbor; and the free bus makes half hourly pickups at the park entrance: dogs and bikes are permitted on the bus! If you're in Bar Harbor, this is a great place to stay.
