Came here excited to do some family swimming and fishing. The pools are separated so adults that want a cocktail by the pool while they watch their kids swim they are out of luck. The property has some serious flooding problems. The streets, fishing canals and golf course were covered with water after normal Florida summer showers. Several of the cabins and rv sites were water logged and inaccessible without rain boots. The checker board, putt putt golf area and shuffle board areas were covered with ant mounds and or puddles. The access to the golf course was flooded out. The park has the opportunity to be a good one if they address the bug issues, figure a way to improve drainage, and have more activities for the kids. We will not be back.
