Their staff was not only attentive but thorough and friendly. The pontoons are hand down the best in the area and close/ easy to find! We have used others before and will be going back here always! Thank you for an amazon day and wonderful family memories!

We rented a 24 foot pontoon which we found to be of excellent quality. We even had locals tell us they had never seen such a nice rental boat. The staff at the Marina were friendly and extremely helpful. I recommend them highly!

Let me first say that our overall experience at the resort was pleasurable. This is an older resort, possibly built in the 1950s, but the rooms are nice and clean with backdoor parking. The grounds are well-kept and pool area was very nice. Access to the water was easy and it was a short distance to downtown Deland. The staff... More

After purchasing a fishing trip to surprise me with on my 50th birthday, my husband then booked a room at the Tropical. He checked with a couple of others around the lake, but they had no rooms left. (It was also biker week.) He asked that they not send a confirmation until after my birthday. So after my birthday, we... More

This is not The Ritz Carlton, this is a delightful trip back in time to old Florida. Yes, your towels don't get laundered avery day (we brought a few extras) and you got to empty the trash yourself and make the bed yourself, etc. But, the resident sandhill cranes and wild turkeys more than make up for any minor inconveniences....

When we got to the resort there was one rv in the park. We asked for a waterfront spot and was asked or the year of our rv. We have a completely rebuilt 89 Allegro with custom paint. We were told we could only go to the back of the park in the sand. The owner/manager is very rude and... More

The location is beautiful and the rooms were nice, however I think the owners or management needs some lessons on customer service. On our 4th day there, we asked for clean towels and were told that it's not in their policy to provide clean linens and that if we wanted clean towels, that they had coin laundry available! Why would... More

I write this as I sit in my camper after being questioned about how many people are staying. This would not have been such a problem if my husband and his brother who were fishing had not been treated like they were trespassing and not a paid guest with a day visitor. We had some family come and spend the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come share our "hammock" (from the Native Indian culture, meaning "a shady place") as you discover the natural beauty of Old Florida. Unlike your average hotel or motel it’s like having your own waterfront cottage or cabin. Our campground affords spacious campsites so you can enjoy all the same amenities from your own RV. An outdoor vacation for the entire family. Experience "life on the river", where time seems to stand still. We are situated between Hontoon Landing State Park and Blue Springs State Park - a winter haven to dozens of manatees. Great fishing and nature watching. ... more   less
