The problems experienced and reported on this Federal Campground indicate major ethical issues when private or corporate political beliefs become informal policies that target the public they hired to serve. Seems like serious conflicts of interest and if the plan is to discourage the public from using public parks. Report your problems to Congress and the Inspector General for the Interior Department.
This is a privately owned resort. The resort is owned and operated by the residents. My husband and I rented from private owners for 4 years. We loved it so much that this year we bought our own lot here! The springs are across the street when we are tired if using the lake and pools here!
Nice location. Mostly long term or full timers. Some lots are owned and residents only come on weekends and holidays. Such was the case in the lot next to one we occupied for a week. Unfortunately, these residents did not see the need to observe the published quiet hours of 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. and thus we had two nights of loud music, boisterous inebriated party goers well into the wee hours of the morning. Tried twice to call management and got a Voicemail with no return call. Finally had to summon the sheriff around 1 a.m. The most troublesome part was when we tried to discuss the matter with the management the following day we were met with total apathy and indifference. Otherwise, it was an ok place. Nice location on a lake but would not recommend it.
This federal park is maintained at a 5 star! Nice paved streets and camp sites. Full hook ups including sewer. Separate area for primitive camping. Fire rings and grills at each site. Access to salt springs for tubing, swimming and snorkeling. Canoe and boat rental next door to park. Love this place!
Just got back from three nights. The resort is nice, it is owned by members who own the sites. We went through a real estate company to make reservation. You check in at the manned front gate, which was prepared for our arrival. The restrooms were clean, up to date and A/C awesome. Being mid July in Florida we excepted hot and humid, which it was but not bad. The place is huge and being mid week really slow and peaceful. The place must rock on weekends and holidays. Very family oriented, club house has room for kids, didn't go in, no dogs inside, so we just walked by. The negatives are that the 2 pools were over 90 degrees, no relief at all. They need to put pool sails, which works at my pool in south Fla. The biggest issues is that the sites have cable hook up, but due to each site separately owned you'll need a spectrum digital box. No wifi at the site. We were prepared with several seasons of The Big Bang, Barney Miller. The antenna only got 3 channels, 2 being Gov't. There is no boat rentals or store, but just outside gate is a dollar general which has everything you need. Get you ice from the ice machine on 19, for 2 bucks for 16lbs. You're very close to Salt Springs recreational and camping park. It's a must see! the springs, which release 52 million gallons a day. Awesome snorkeling through the four vents which is 72 degrees year round. We drove through the camp ground and it looked great, we will definitely stay there the next time we're in the area. I would have rated it 4 stars, but the cable was the issue....
