Additional Pet Information:
This RV Park has some really bad qualities, including:
- Lack of 50 AMP Spaces: The KOA website showed the spaces as 30/50 AMP, so I assumed we would have 50 AMP when we arrived. As it, turns out there are a small number (10%) of spaces that have 50 AMP and all occupied when we checked in so we had a 30 AMP Space.
Suggestion: Charge $3 more per day for the 50 AMP space. Save the extra income and start rolling out 50 AMP to spaces.
- Resort Fee: This RV park is part of Encore, we were already spending $50 a night and had prepaid via http://koa.com. Upon arrival, I had to pay an extra $3 per night for our stay for a 'Resort Fee'. In Las Vegas, a Resort Fee covers the TV and WiFi but here it covers ... I do not know what because we only had 18 TV Channels and the WiFi...
- WiFi: They used TengoInternet for Internet, which means we had to pay to use it. The cost for a week is $16.95, however it was unusable. Facebook would load in 2 minutes, uploading an image to the blog would take 30 minutes. Basically, unusable as is most TengoInternet at RV parks.
- Customer Service: When we arrived, there was a sign by their propane saying "No Propane Today." I asked why that was and received a lecture by their employee before finally coming to the point, only certified people can fill tanks and they only work Monday-Friday (we arrived Sunday). I did not need Propane that bad, but I also did not need a lecture on why your RV park does not have enough staff to fill propane. I asked what the Resort Fee cover and did not get a straight answer either which jaded me.
We spent six days here and the park itself was standard. Our space was spacious and the RV parked on a level concrete pad. A few times, we heard a jet fly overhead, but it was not loud enough to disturb us.
The location on Pine Island was relaxing, there was minimal traffic and we found ourselves slowing down during our visit.
This RV park had water, sewer, electric and cable hookups. There was a laundry room, which was clean but more expensive than most. There is a dedicated dog walk and a "playground" which was basically a set of swings.
Would I recommend this park? Maybe. Would we come back? Maybe, the annoyances listed above are a huge no-no for me. This could have been a 'good' experience instead of a 'meh' experience.
Informational: We travel in a 36' Class A RV.
