“Only staying because we have no other choice!”
Reviewed 8 January 2013

My husband works at Turkey Point so we have experience with other RV "resorts" in the area. I have to say that this one is one of the worst - You can definitely get a lot more for the money in this area. We chose to stay here because they were the ONLY place in this area (up to an hour away) that had RV lots left.
Although I like the idea that the guys can go out and have a few drinks at the tiki bar without having to drive anywhere, it's probably the only thing I like about the place. I do have to say from experience, the tiki bar used to be loud late into the night, but it doesn't seem like they are having bands play anymore since I haven't heard any music. I do know from experience that they USED to have music and karaoke that was really loud.
The spaces are EXTREMELY tight. You look out your trailer or RV's window to see another one a couple of feet away. We are literally 2 feet from the rear of another trailer.
There is little to no room for parking. I get nervous parking inches away from another trailer and am even more nervous about someone else parking so close to ours! I have heard our neighbor hit our trailer with their truck door a few times already. A lot of the time people have to park partially on our lot which leaves no room for our two vehicles.
The roads within the park are one lane and are not one way. Most of these people drive big trucks to tow their trailers with and they do not fit easily down the roads. The only way you could get two vehicles down the roads is if you're driving golf carts! If someone else is coming down the road, you have to back up back into your space, wait for them to pass, and cross your fingers that another vehicle doesn't come down the street before you can get out.
Also, the free wi-fi gives no signal and we are only one road away from the office. I get a better signal from the Ramada down the road.
There was a reviewer on here (dmul and delaney_8 seem to be the same person) that reviewed the same thing twice, "If you're not having fun, it's your own fault." This is a pretty idiotic statement. I thought we were reviewing an RV park. Not a place to have fun. If you want to have fun at the tiki bar, or the pool, that's fine, but an RV Resort is a place to live and feel comfortable, not just to have fun.

Room Tip: I you have to stay here, try and get a corner lot. They have more room to move and backing your rig...

The entire site was very cramped. Didn't feel like the office staff were helpful or friendly. Too far away from good restaurants and shopping. Everglades good for nature buffs but not very interesting if planning just a drive through

For the past 3 years we have stayed at Southern Comfort RV Resort for the Nascar Championship weekend - the tiki bar is loud well into am hours - the pool had a band there and ws so loud we couldn't even hear each other talk. When we checked in they talked us into depositing $100 for 2011 Nascar Championship weekend so we did-stupid move on our part - we acn't go this year and Southern Comfort told me they don't refund the deposit for this weekend - they only do this for people that stay months at a time - they took me for $100 so I will never stay there again - they have gotten over $300 from us each year over the past 3 years and will not get another penny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We will not be back. We are dog lovers. The campground is dog friendly, but not friendly to dogs. We only stayed for one week on lot 232 next to the pullthrus. Two dogs were tied out on a porch, we seen the owner 3 times while we were there. Another dog was left out in a cage in the rain, the owner left at 6:30 in the morning and returned at 6:00 in the evening. When my wife went to the office to complain that we could see the dog and hear it whine from our lot the office manager argued with her. We own a campground in Ohio and any employee that would argue with a customer, right or wrong, would not work for me. It was obvious at that point things was not going to change.

If you like extremely loud music that continues to after mid-night and makes sleep or even conversations in most of this campground impossible, then this RV Park is the place for you. Don’t consider asking the campground owner to ensure the Tiki Bar music is played at a sane level, we were told he was the one actually playing music/karaoke and everyone’s request for volume reductions were rudely ignored. This music was so loud the Tiki Bar was empty at 9:30pm on Saturday night, but the deafening levels of possibly the worlds worst music selections still continued for hours longer.

Getting in and out of this RV Park is extremely dangerous due to the traffic patterns and flow especially for larger rigs. The sites were well spaced and some had trees, but navigation on the narrow roads in the campground was very difficult for our longer fifth wheel. All sites had grass (no gravel) which was nice, but it was very difficult for us to actually get out of our site the day we left due to no traction on the grass in the rain.

Most rigs were newer, some are permanent and there are work crew campers also. This is a 1950s RV Campground that shows it’s age everywhere. Nothing is terrible, just worn. The bath and showers were adequate, but all were in need of a full face lift and more frequent cleaning

We would suggest name change for this RV Park. Something like the “Southern Discomfort RV Resort.” We will never go back there and have never seen such a total lack of respect for customers at any RV Park before.
