First, I want to say that Captain Phillip was very kind. The location of the camp is perfect. We caught mangrove snapper, trout and catfish during our stay. The positives end there. Our Redfish cabin needs TLC, and has details that I can’t overlook. I wasn’t expecting luxury by any means. But I do expect cleanliness. I expect ANY accommodation to be cleaned prior to arrival. That wasn’t the case here. The “cabin” (single wide recreational trailer) needs help. The interior floor was peeling. The exterior hadn’t been cleaned in what appeared to be years. The bathroom door didn’t close, and the sink faucet was leaking (see photos). No batteries in the smoke alarm. (HUGE no no for code enforcement) lights that don’t work. A shower that only comfortably accommodates someone under 5’6. The fridge hadn’t been cleaned out, and the previous guests left hashbrowns and water bottles in the freezer, as well as what appeared to be leftover sauces. I have no idea how this was overlooked. The fridge had rust/mold stains? All over the exterior. There were half used toiletries in the bathroom. Again. Overlooked? How? I feel like whoever cleaned the cabin made the beds and stuck a folded towel on the vanity and called it a day. There was dog waste around the perimeter on the cabin, and a full trash can. I didn’t feel compelled to use the sheets on the bed, because judging by the cabin assumed they weren’t changed out. We only stayed our second night to do some night fishing, otherwise we would have cut our losses and drove home. I want to like this place. But I can’t. Not enough to come back. You have to pay cash or check, which isn’t on the website. Likely to avoid card transaction fees. So good luck if you want a refund for an experience like my own. Oak Hill is a nice sleepy community, and this camp could be amazing, if properly handled. I read some other reviews when I got home, and they had similar concerns. I don’t want a free stay. I don’t want a discount on a future stay. I just want the owner to properly care for their accommodations. Or lower the price to reflect a “get what you paid for” style stay. Again, Phillip and the fishing were great. But that isn’t enough to bring us back.…
Unfortunately too many people love it. I've spent my birthday here for the past 3 years. They are all booked up this year (sad face) Captain Phill is a real character, he's great. Cabins are nice but the Flounder is my favorite. Have stayed in all but one.
We took a kayak trip to the Oak Hill Fish Camp located right on Mosquito Lagoon in Oak Hill, Florida at the end of March. We stayed in the Redfish cabin where we did some kayak fishing. The winds were coming from the east at 15-20 mph which made it difficult for Kayak Fishing, however the area was beautiful and i definitely plan to visit this area again in the future, but I would probably check out Mosquito Lagoon fish camp down the road.I would recommend bringing your own bedding and pillows. At the time of my stay the redfish cabin was the only cabin with a screened in area, while the other cabins had porches they were not screened in. The cabin was $125 a night and while there were some concerns I would stay there again.
We booked the Flounder cabin based on the pics and needs. Nothing like pics! Bed bugs ate us alive! No way to lock door if you were to leave. Front door was tied shut with a cord. Someone elses laundry was in the laundry room. Workers were putting in docks due to them falling apart and used our deck while we were there to do push ups. Unless you have a boat theres no way to fish in the 2 ft of water surrounding the camp. Everywhere else is no trespassing. Website is VERY MISLEADING AS ARE THE REVIEWS. Dont get sucked in like we did. We lwft without even staying 24 hours.
The location is fine. Right on the water, but we could not overlook the condition of the property. The cabin are very run down and in disrepair. I’m sure hurricane Irma did not do any favors, but it seem like they have just let everything go. The cabin was VERY dingy. We found dead roaches in several places. Yes, it’s a fish camp and not the Ritz Carlton, but for god sake hire a cleaning lady or fire the current one and get someone who cares. Next time we come to ML we will stay elsewhere.
