We first went in 1993 and my kids were young. It was fantastic and there were kid activities with employee supervision and family involvement. We continued on and off for 15 years, the last 4 year stent was every year and all the big holidays.
We knew many if the seasonal sand regulars and they are friendly and clicky as other reviews indicate. Heck even the band and DJ's cater to the regulars (yes that included us)
But as a parent I grew up. I was divorced and remarried and had young ones again. The drinking and profanity are bad, when curfews aren't able to be enforced. Also, the kids nowadays (due to parents) are let loose to entertain themselves. In my early years my kids did too- but it was volleyball, freeze tag and other such fun that included all kids.
Now it's cooler hoppin(beer from drunk peoples coolers), smoking and worse. Muchworse. The golf carts are decked out like status symbols and adults that walk are a minority. The drinking and shenanigans are way too much for our family. It's gotten way out of hand in my opinion.
The Skybrook of yester year always brings a smile to my face and I am glad it still continues to be a campground. It is a great location with lots of space for camping. But huge trailers, golf carts and decks quickly make newbies unwelcome and outsiders.
It's hard work for them to integrate particularly if they don't drink or stay up until 3 am.
Not a place for young ones for sure. It WAS. But it's not.
This doesn't mean you can't make a fine weekend camping here because you can. Just be prepared for noise, profanity and partying rednecks from sun up to sun up! Hey that suited me at one time but not now.
It never suited my kids but at one time I was too selfish to care. Now I do.
