We were there for a week in our RV and we found that the employees were very helpful and friendly. Easy to drive our 40’ RV around the park to get to our spot. Back in spot was also easy to get into. We were within walking distance to the clubhouse and pool which was very nice. Most of the review comments discuss the noise from the 75. Yes we could hear it from our spot, but once in our RV, could not hear it at all. The only disadvantage is that the RV park is pretty far east so it takes awhile to get to the beaches. Was not an issue for us since we have a toad.

It is a fair RV Park. Encore yes but more of a regular rv park. Encore because of the amenities they offer. We will visit again and ask for the same RV pad. No problem with others while we were there very dog friendly as well.

the dog poop stations were well stocked and emptied as needed. the highway noise is to loud for the site we were at. COVID disrupted many of the activities. not a place for school children as there are no playgrounds. grocery and other stores were close by and convent.

Think twice about staying any longer than a couple of days. We are snowbirds. This is the second year in the park and had planned on returning for many years. The quality of the park has declined significantly in just one year. Management shows no sign of addressing the issues.
Nothing is locked for security. Vagrants use the laundry and shower facilities. These areas are not cleaned on the housekeeping staff’s days off.
My husband had his touring bike stolen...one of 15 bike that had disappeared.
The secondary laundry/shower facility has been completely renovated. The shower area has a major leak...as of the day we left, there was still a large area of water laying in front of the door...one month after it was reported.
We left a week early due to these issues...very disappointed...

If you get a spot on the side of the lake closest to I-75 it will be very noisy all night long. I had asked if I could pay the difference in my spot and the one across from me which backed up on the lake. I was told I had to pay almost $100 so that spot stayed vacant all weekend.
