Dr. Mr M, I have tried calling you to discuss this matter. This does not appear to be a case of stolen identity. The person in question has the exact same name as your partner. His license has been checked as well as all credit cards. It was a clerical error due to the fact your partner had the same... More

Outstanding !! Such an unbelievable great weekend. So many activities that were planned out deligiently and professionally. Fireworks for New Years Eve was perfect for bringing in the New Year. Great job by the entire staff, couldn't be more pleased. If you haven't made a reservation for New Years 2017, Do it now !!!

They push you to do online reservations, but they never confirm with you if the reservation goes through. And what a nightmare to call, rude attendants and being put on hold..... for several minutes at a time, only to be told, they never received your reservation and nothing they will do to make it right.

Great site location. steps to the Bathroom & pool area. Be sure to bring lots of supplies, as the park location is fairly remote, and the Store on site is very sparsely stocked. One of our few complaints, its a great country style store, but the shelves are pretty empty. Our experience was very good, minor other complaint was that... More

We always enjoy our time at sawmill, whether we enjoy the pool, walking thru the park or eating at the pool side cafe. Its all good and the staff are always very nice. When ever in the Tampa area we normally will camp here in a 42' motor home
