Not a very relaxing campground if near highway. Where you can not pick your site for thousand trails and they will not let you change once there, beware. We had the highway so close we could feel the camper move. Bring EARPLUGS!

If you do stay, stay on the side away from the traffic and it should be a pleasant stay, the restrooms and facilities are very clean and well kept.

Lovely resort with a beautiful lake and pool. We were at the side of the campground with a very busy 4 lane highway right behind which kept us from sitting outside to converse. But other parts of the resort were much quieter. Would stay here again. We are Encore membership so stay was free.

This place is a joke, there is known drug activity going on, corporate knows about it, the sheriffs office knows about it, the office manager knows about it and yet nothing is being done. There have been needles/syringes found in yards, there have been people being awoken by someone screaming at 5:30 am due to drugs. It’s pretty sad when people spend their hard earned money and pay their rent on time and when they bring up their concerns, they are pretty much laughed at. It’s absolutely pathetic that this has been going on for almost 4 years now and still, nothing is done about it. Encore needs to get their crap together and they better do it quick before they get a lawsuit on their hands stemming from something tragic.

The sites are very nice, try to stay on the East and North side of the park to stay stay from I-75 road noise.
2 pools and a very nice hot tub.
All roads are paved and there is a nice trash compactor for easy garbage disposal.
Beautiful lake for fishing or paddle boarding and a boat ramp into the manatee river for nice kayaking.
Walmart, Publix and Home Depot are all very close and only 20 minute drive to the beaches and fresh seafood.

I would never stay or recommend staying at this resort. The management was not nice to us when we could not find a spot for our 44' RV. There were Elite spots avail, but would not allow us to stay in 1.
