I have no idea where the negative posts come from! No, it's not spread out with 50' between campers but certainly not to where you can't put out your awnngs! Our spot was up against the fence facing the road. The spot had a clear view of the Gulf, concrete pad just outside our door and with a picnic table. The management could not be more helpful or friendly. I've spoken with three different office people so far and they are all pleasant and enjoyed having a conversation.
You must get a reservation as the park is always full due to it's location. The beach is 100 yards from the park and another 100 yards to the water (depending on tide/winds).
On the negative is the WIFI which is iffy. But who doesn't have a 'droid' these days! The electricity is metered @$.17 per kWh. Seems high but based on law, it's what the park pays; no mark-up. Propane is site-delivered every Wednesday @ 2.25 per gallon.
We don't tow a car so we relied on the hourly shuttle that goes right by the park. For a quarter you can ride to all the major areas of Port A. There's a large IGA grocery store with a huge wine selection. And 1/3 of a mile down the road is a convenience store which has the basics along with wine and beer.
We're on our fourth week of an eight week stay and could not be happier. People who say they have problems with management probably have problems where ever they go. JMO.
