Being a frequent visitor to the campground and either using a campsite or cabin, I was fortunate enough to be lucky and win two nites in the new accomodations, THE BUNKHOUSE. It has a home feeling with complete kitchen and fireplace. It has a great covered front porch area to sit and watch the "wildlife" and such. Inside, it has... More

I'm going to let a couple of secrets out of the bag about this place: First, I believe that during the week it is the best overall adult lodging value in all of Florida. Their weekday rates for everything from their deluxe cabins to the most primitive campspot simply can't be beat. And it's clothing-optional with a nice little poolside... More

I had anticipated my stay after reading reviews in other gay sites, but I was neither blown away or completely dissatisfied. It was (is) a campground and as far as campgrounds go it is typical. Straight, gay or otherwise. CONS: I was in a space backed up to Woodies and the "courtyard. I anticipated the noise and the knew I... More

I buy a yearly pass and enjoy going as much as I can. Have recently started tent camping and love it. You meet a lot more friendly people that way. You have to remember this is a campground not the Ritz. And we're outside with the bugs. Whether you're in a gay or straight campground there always going to be... More

Because of availability and it was a big Halloween weekend, and we did not booked early, we had to take our tent. Here is some good advice for tenting here: 1. some sites are closer than others to the pool/bathroom... More

Whenever I want to get away from the crazy mess of the city life and find me some down to earth, relaxing, and at the same time have fun enjoying a few cocktails and dancing, (even if it is by myself), this is where I like to go. Everyone is friendly, welcoming and must important everyone there is having their... More
