We stayed at this park for new years 2014. being part of the Encore family, reservations are done through a central office. Even though I selected Motor home and specified 37' in length, somehow they reserved us a spot for a 28' RV. Luckily, they had another spot open that we would fit in. The office staff was good but not what I would call friendly. It is hard to describe but almost as if they were looking for something to get mad about.
As everyone has noted, the park is older and the streets are somewhat narrow. It is only really a problem if some guests are inconsiderate in how they park their cars. Even with an SUV parked into the road on my left, I was still able to get our rig into the spot without much difficulty. The sites do face each other but they are set so your door is behind the neighbor's RV. It works out well enough and you still get a decent sense of isolation.
The location is great. The beach is not too far of a drive and there are tons of stores and restaurants close by. The main road is somewhat busy. The bathrooms are older but were very clean every time I went in them and they made some small update attempts. The pool was heated and well kept and there is a hot tub. The exercise room was actually pretty nice and was kept very cold and had a water cooler, disinfectant wipes and a sink. It seemed to be pretty pet friendly and there is a small dog park area. Everyone that was staying there that we met was very nice. It was VERY quiet at night, even on new years eve. This is a huge plus to me as we are morning people and I can have trouble sleeping if there are many distractions.
The cable TV infrastructure was terrible. They have daisy chained boxes with cable just laid across the ground. There did not seem to be enough hookups for as many sites as there were in the area we were at. Allot of our neighbors were using satellite so didn't mind. The cable was out on our loop and it was quite the event getting it back on. One long term resident told us that in his experience all but the front desk staff were pretty useless. WiFi is Tengo and is not free. Power water and sewer were all fine.
I would and probably will stay there again. It is a nice little park and a great place to stay in the area. The prices were very reasonable as well.
