Incredible views of the ocean just steps from your site. Because this is a narrow park right on the ocean, road noise is considerable, but that is made up by the view and is somewhat blocked by the wind noise and sounds of the surf. Sites are very sandy, so you may also want blocks or something solid if you use jacks. Also, if you are on the beach side and want to pull in forward, you will need a longer electric cord and water hose. Only recommendation is to not come here during Bike Week in Daytona as roar of motorcycles could be heard almost all night and certainly all day. Would highly recommend this place--fills up very fast, so get reservations at 11 month opening.
I loved this park. I was in #13 in the beach campground and found it quiet and beautiful. I pulled in forwards so I was facing the dunes, and could see just a peek of the sound in the distance. It was a very short walk to the almost deserted sound and pier/ocean beaches. No bugs because of constant wind from the ocean. Had good Verizon coverage, also. Only thing that made me nervous was the canopy drive coming in and out, but was careful and never scraped anything.
I really disliked this place. It is an older park, built when most people tented or used much smaller trailers or RVs. Other than a few sites, sites were very small and you practically touched your neighbors. Because I do not have a towed vehicle, I have to go out and in every couple of days, and it was very difficult because of tight spaces and lots of trees in the wrong places. I helped one guy thread his 14' trailer in between trees with only a foot on either side and in the back! Even the dump station was tight. Sites were also dirt and poorly marked. Hard to figure out where your site started and next one ended. My site had trees on both sides and a large overhanging branch, so I had to have help backing in almost every time. I also was on a corner, so I had a space beside/behind me with a popup about 6 feet from the back of my motorhome. Luckily the site next to me (#72) was mostly empty--mainly because it was rated as so small and had a drainage grate on it that was recessed, making it almost impossible to get into. I watched one trailer almost tip over as it was backed into this site because of the recessed drain. Being in the woods was nice for shade, but satellites did not work and it was very buggy. A lot of smaller trailers and families in tents, but I would NOT recommend this for anything longer than 25 feet, if that. This is a park where I keep hearing rumors about their removing some of the smaller spaces and many of the Saba palm trees that make it so hard to get in and out, but nothing seems to have been done or is in the works. I will not stay here again, and in fact, left one day early, having paid for day with no refund possible. Just could not stand the thought of having to get back in again.
Love this park! The roads are asphalt in good condition, as are the RV sites, which for me means no tracking in of dirt. Sites are arranged around a small lake/large pond, and have no shade, which was fine for my satellite signal. Correct in no cell phone service, but I did get cell data service most of the time. I Velcro my mobile hotspot to my RV window, and was able to get a couple of bars nearly all the time. Wish they would allow reservations here, but I was here for several days in mid-January when everything else around here, especially state parks, were absolutely full, and this place was never full. I would easily stay here again.
Access to this park is a nightmare, at least in a larger rig. I did not expect the extremely narrow bridge nor the extremely steep incline to reach this park. I scraped my tires going across the bridge and was very nervous considering I had a brand new motorhome. Once you get across the bridge, the road to two RV parks and many homes is basically one lane. No way to turn around if you change your mind. My 32' rig fit into the spot, but with some help parking. One positive was that kids enjoyed the pool, but not worth it otherwise. I would not come here again, no matter how scenic it is supposed to be.
This is a 10 for kids, but not necessarily for adults who want quiet. The park has tons of activities for children, so it attracts a lot of families. I came with my grandkids who were thrilled with the playground and pools and various other kids things. Except that the one waterpark closed at 7:00 just as they were getting their suits on. One thing not listed on their site was that all adults and children are required to wear wristbands in public areas, including showers, restrooms, and the pool during their entire stay. Apparently this is a safety thing for kids and to keep out non-paying customers. Personally, I can understand this, but was very irritated to be told I had to wear this unless I was in my motorhome on my site!! Fairly level site, but all gravel and dusty. Also be aware that very few sites are full hookup. I thought I had reserved full hookup, but found out I had actually reserved only water and electric, plus they charged me $10 to dump at any time other than at the end of my stay as I was leaving! I had come in with 3/4 black tank, so ended up paying that fee.
