“Cramped and unfriendly”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is the most cramped access I have ever seen in an RV park. The access roads are so narrow that is barely possible to tow a trailer down one let alone pull through and park. It so so tight you are required to have a park employee assist with parking. In our case we had to ask two other people to move their vehicles which were well parked within their spaces and ask another camper to take down their awning to enable us to park at all.

Furthermore the staff is not friendly or very helpful. I would not recommend staying here. There are much better TV parks on the island.

This place is horrible. Packed in like sardines, and you would not believe the rules and regulations. I respect rules, but this place is ridiculous. We never want to come to this place again. Management is snooty and seems to pick on the visitors that she doesn't like. You don't want to go out you door for rear that you may breathe too much air and be scolded like a 2 year old for it. Seriously!!! Never again. If you want a decent place to go, don't go to Island RV.

Great central location in Port A. Clean pool and restrooms with a nice staff. The sites are really tight so don't expect a lot of room between trailers but chances are you'll be spending most of your time at the pool or beach anyway. But, if you do want a lot of space, this place probably isnt for you. Beach is about 5 minutes away. Clubhouse is clean and Lots of dining options nearby.

This was the most crowded RV park we've ever stayed in, with the least amount of space for each RV. There is so little space between sites that side-by-side slide-outs almost touch. You can't walk between them. The streets, which are nicely paved, are so narrow that getting the RVs in and out of the sites requires neighbors to move their vehicles while the RV is driven back and forth, back and forth to get in or out. The park is clean, the restrooms and laundry nice, the pool is good, and the people are friendly. But we won't ever stay in that park again.
