I am told there is new management, but we were very happy with our stay in February - May 1st despite Covid-19. My wife and I have been at the resort since February 15th. I think some reviews seems to be from disgruntled guests maybe because WE have experienced a definite experience. We see an increase in cleanness as well as resort communication is the best. Yes, there are some older homes but it definitely this is a RV Resort. We have found the few older units are well maintained and the people are so very nice. Is there 2-3 off the wall rigs yes but even those guests are very pleasant and speak highly of the park and management . The resort is changing under this new management and I would highly recommend giving it a try.
After reading the reviews for this park we arrived expecting something much different than what is actually there. First the positive: the people working in the office couldn't possibly be any nicer and do a great job with what they have to work with. As for the park itself, it is a "resort" in name only. It is basically an older trailer park with a section for transient RVs, and it is in desperate need of a cleanup and some rules for the permanent residents regarding minimal maintenance standards and how much clutter and junk they are allowed to have. We had a "premium pull thru site" but there was so much clutter in the site next to us that we couldn't maneuver into it except by going to the next street over and backing in (including the rig itself, the site next to us had a total of six vehicles parked on it including a commercial food trailer, along with various plastic crates, assorted buckets, grills, fire pits, a garden swing, multiple extra propane tanks, etc. And despite having every inch of the site covered in “stuff” to the extent some of it was encroaching on the road, they had traffic cones set out around the site which we had to move just to get past) . There is WiFi but it is virtually unusable, although better internet is available for an extra fee. There are signs of some improvements being made here and there such as newer concrete pads on some sites but it is a game of chance on what you get-- the pad on our premium site was old and crumbling and literally barely wide enough for our lawn chairs . Most RV sites are on a hill and are not level--even the ones with newer pads--and they are packed together and tight. We only stayed a couple of days and didn't use the laundry facilities or pool so we have no info on those. Bottom line, this is an aging park with very nice ladies working in the office but not a place we will ever return to.…
They put you in the area where there is long term trashy people. Stayed here twice and won’t go back. Both times were bad. No cable tv as paid for, trashy permanent sites surrounded us so it didn’t feel like a vacation, and very uneven sites on a hill. As you enter the park it looks beautiful but don’t get excited. Pool is nice and office staff are awesome but the experience is far from nice.
My wife and I went to Orange City RV Resort for 2019 Biketoberfest. We arrived on Thursday 10/17. The type of site that I had booked, premium pull thru, was not available. We were directed to another site which was not too level. I went to the office to complain. I was given a refund for the different site and they sent people to the site to get us all level. The next day we lost half of our power from the campsite’s breaker box. I called the office to see what the problem was and was given the name of a mobile RV repair. He came and said it was not my RV, but the campground. They made all GOOD!
We rented a Vacation Cottage Rental for a week during Dayton Biketoberfest. Manager Ron Coverly, Heidi Metzger, Christy and the entire staff were very professional, friendly and helpful. Having stayed here many times over the years it is very apparent that they are trying very hard to upgrade the property. We will be staying again. They are very Motorcycle friendly
