While a well-tended and comfortable resort, it felt a bit crowded. We have a smaller rig and were able to find a pull through site easily but many site were curved or have tree obstructions. Be aware that the resort is near a train track and are traveled through out the day and night. We will stay again but select a site further in the park. We loved the amount of community events and apprecited the communications via text about happenings. Bathroom and laundry facilities are well tended and had an ease of access.

If you can go anywhere else, do. The spots are not maintained and several didn't have working electricity. However, there are many reserved spots for staff that they keep well maintained. We drove around for over 20 minutes looking for a spot to accommodate our rig. The staff on site (not in the office) are some of the rudest people I've ever had the displeasure of interacting with. If this location was not close to my family when we visit, we would never return.

Very nice park in a nice area. Good security and friendly staff. Only issue was that it’s a large park with lots of people, only three laundry facilities and 2 of them were closed because the machines didn’t work.

for the most part the staff is very good and there are several activities. As far as the park - This is the worse RV park we've stayed at on this trip. There are no rules, so people put up fencing and pop ups that infringe on the space next to them. It's a free for all for parking so small 30amp RV's park in the 50amp spaces even though there are empty 30amp spaces. The ground at several spaces is very uneven.

We stayed in one of the cottages and it was very clean. The park was full of RV’s as people seem to know this is a great location. The pool was clean and very warm. We played pickle ball and pool. There are many other activities like volleyball in the pool for those who want to socialize. The park itself provides a nice walking and biking loop. The employees were all very helpful and top notch. We will be back.

The roads and sites were all dirt, dust, and sand. Pickleball courts were covered in dirt. No other amenities that we were interested in. No dog park. They did have pet waste sites. The pool looked nice but the weather was not. Park does send text messages about activities for childrenin the park even if you don’t have children or even after you have left the park. We won’t go back to this park. Too many other better parks.

I’ve been to a lot of Thousand Trails. This one by far is the nicest one I’ve been to. The palm trees are beautiful. The pool was clean. We also enjoyed that the pool temperature was warm. The overall RV resort was well-maintained.

This park is no longer the jewel of Thousand Trails. Sites are Mostly sand and not level. Restrooms are worn out and need updates. For a prime location this park is NOT up to what we Expect from a resort.

Except for one problem, this would have been a good stay. Grounds are nice, great heated pool, cabins clean though shop worn. But…… there were rabbits under the cabin chewing and clawing all night. Though friendly, staff could not help! Management was not available over the weekend and maintenance was unable to help. Since we have a cabin pass no financial remedy was possible. We lost a lot of sleep during an otherwise good stay.
