Does anyone have any "living at" or "just visiting" experiences they wouldn't mind sharing about the ones previously mentioned or other upscale RV Resorts? What are or were your likes and or dislikes about these properties?

Thanks again for taking your time to post on this discussion. Hope everyone has a <span class="ev_code_PURPLE">Great New Year</span>!!

Well I'm at River Bend Motorcoach Resort in Alva Fla.
River Bend has 3 club houses, a private bar and restaurant, 1000+ ft. on the Caloosahatchee River with docks and access to Gulf or Atlantic, rental boats, 4 lakes with good fishing, self sufficient with it's own water and treatment plant and large private lots.

I've stayed in many high end in nearly every state and must say this is only exceeded by one, Outdoor in Indio Ca. in my opinion.

Peter

Actually I believe you can wash your coach at nearly all high end resorts.

You can usually have your RV washed for $50 or so at these high end resorts which is usally less than a days rental.

We have also stayed at River Bend, Pelican Lake, and St Lucie West and all are class A only.

A new item on the horizon is an undisclosed "resort fee". This started in the hotel industry where any hotel that thinks its a resort because it offers some amenities adds a resort fee per night that I have seen as high as $15. This is in addition to their usually high nightly rate and your not told about till check in or possibly not till check out.

Now some RV "resort" parks in AZ and FL have started to add this same undisclosed fee. The number at present is $3 per night. Beware -ask what the total including taxes and fees if any are before reserving.

Thanks ecker!! It astounds me how much can and is truly hidden on your bill until after the fact. Thanks for the heads-up!!

Thanks Peter!! Both resorts are on our list to visit. Since you mentioned that you have been to most across the states, based on your experience what is a "must have" when you visit, and what is your dislikes if any? I don't like being right on top of another site where I can literally hear every word of their conversation. Just curious. Thanks again for sharing.

Well Pacific Shores in Newport, which is an Outdoor, is very nice as far as views and walks on the beach. A's and C's are allowed. It can be very windy as evident by the tempered glass partition that many owners have erected.
Outdoor, the new one as there are two, in Idio CA. is the top dog. The restaurant is to die for, so are the prices. Expect just under $200 for two drinks on top of that. Food well worth it, 5 star. You need a reservation in season as they do a good business.
Outdoor Las Vegas, nice, You need a car or cab to get into the action.
Hilton Head Outdoor. Many high trees so expect poor sat service. Nice Georgian type resort.
Granite Lake, Clarkston Wa. Nice resort with great views. Not much to do expept there is a driving range next door and docks with jet boat rides up ****'s Canyon.
Outdoor Everglade City. Nice setting on the water. Sites are too close for my liking.
Desitation South, South Padre Is. Texas. This is the only high end resort I've been to that had gravel pads. Oddly enough though, the property was so perfect you felt you could not smoke there. Very nice and just bought by KOA.

These are just a sample of the ones I go back to.

The only, so called high end, that I do not care for is;

Great Outdoors in Tittusville. While it is a huge property and well laid out I find it too much of a mixed bag for me, with trailers, houses, park models, etc. Someone told me they also did not like it as they said everybody looked unhappy there. I did not experience that but I found I was not comfortable there. But that's only me. You and other may very well like it.

We have enjoyed staying at several CG's, SP's, and RV parks. Now we would like to visit "upscale" RV resorts, which can be anywhere in the USA. Does anyone have any recommendations? Would like to hear about your experience. Much appreciated in advance!! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

One great park that was seemingly lost to a developer has come back. Crown Villa in Bend, OR. Developer has decided to keep open for 2007 and possibly beyond. They are taking reservations for 2007 now.

Another Texas RV resort I'd highly recommend is Buckhorn Lake just off I-10 at Kerrville.

New one in Oregon part of a casino but away from the casino and traffic up in the hills is in Canyonville, Seven Feather RV Resort, 190 spaces. Very reasonable price, golf nearby (soon to be new course next to park), indoor pool and workout room, kitchen, free wi-fi and cable. This is right off I-5 south of Roseburg about 80 miles to CA border.
