Ependydad we just received a free years membership to Thousand Trails with our new TT purchase and were going to try Seapines. Pros/cons?

We stayed there 2x. It is on a first come basis, you make the reservation for a spot only, that could be a full service (water, electric. and sewer) to just water and electric. Get there as early as possible for a good spot. They color code the sites on the map telling which site has what type of hookups.Trees everywhere which makes it a tight squeeze. New pool and member area, nice store and only minutes from the beech.

Bill/Cindy covered it well. While it can be a tight squeeze, we take our crew cab/long bed truck + 42' fifth wheel there. I did have one incident with trying to make a turn that I almost couldn't (we actually had to (cough) gently urge a sign out of our way (cough)). Other folks complain of tree branches encroaching on their rig, but I've honestly not had much issue.

If you don't get a sewer site, you get free honey pot service. They're generally in a rush to get done and will hassle you if your sewer outlet is beneath a slide (both of mine are).

I haven't been there since summer of 2013.

Overall, I like it there.

One last note- since it is a popular summer destination, book as early as possible. You're competing with everyone else who has 60 day reservations and some folks who have anywhere from 90-180 day reservation windows.

I'll agree with what a few others have said. Beachcomber and Seashore Campsites are both at the top of my list for the shore area.

Beachcomber is the only campground in 10 years my kids couldn't wait to leave!

I'm sorry for your bad experience Summer2Go. Granted I haven't gone down there in a few years, but our family always had a great time there. We generally camped with at least one other friend or a gang. Sometimes it depends on the people you are with.

We go to Beachcomber 4 or 5 times a season for the last 4 years. Never had an issue and my kids love it.

They had a young kid at the counter who checked us in, and put us in a tent site. The Mosquitos and insects were horrible, and the lot was so full of trees we couldn't get near the power with our cord. I had to use an extension cord for our easy-up. We went back to management, and they refused to help in any way, even though there was 10 or more campsites in front of us un-occupied for the entire time we were there. My kids see everything, there must have been a half dozen violations we recognized in the short time we were there. I would have been better off in a state park offering nothing.
