Lot Map

Positives: This is one of the best camping areas that I have seen so far.  It is a long walk, or a short bike ride, from the beaches of the Gulf.  The lot sizes and shapes are distinctly set with camper comfort and privacy in mind. The buildings are modern and well kept.  There are walking trails, tennis courts, and a number of social opportunities.  Angela and I will stay here sometime in the future.

Negatives:  Most of the activities are for teens or older, if you have small children you have to watch around water, you might want to ensure you are alert with them or rethink this park.

This sign was right next to the tent camping area. If you’re sleeping in a tent, how can you keep from feeding the alligators?
