Does Fork need another RV Park. If so,

What are the amenities that are missing?

What are the amenities that may not be obvious but separate one from another?

What parks are doing things the best?

Paradise Forest RV is an excellent park and I believe they are doing it right... Storage Units, Laundry Machines, Septic, Pavilion, Ice Machine, Gated, Wi-Fi, 3 Boat Ramps, Floating Marina, Mostly Paved Roads... Friendly staff and Owner.

I'm with Ozzie,
If I had to say what I don't like about Paradise is this, it's very important to me, is I need lots of parking. Paradise seems way to packed in for me.
I like trees and shade and parking for at least two vehicles and boat.
1) I need elbow room
2) Don't tell me I have only a certain amount of days to use my site.
3) Don't tell me I can NOT let my family use my camper if I am not there.

I think that Mustang Resort has ample space, great launch ramp,boat storages, store motel,always clean, not crowded, good security. CANT ASK FOR A BETTER PLACE. OF COURSE, THATS WHERE I STAY.

I looked into them last year. What I found was that too many were packed in like sardines. It would’ve worth a little more money to me to not be on top of each other. Some of the rules were too strict such as not allowing family to use when I wasn’t there. Have heard from a few that the owners like to rent the property but don’t like you really staying there often because of the water bill. Again, I would not mind paying for extra water over a certain amount to enjoy my time there.

In the end, most of them are priced fairly low if they aren’t water front. I think a nicer more luxurious park could do well at a little higher rate. For me, my wife wouldn’t really go on the boat much so she would like a cleaner more spacious place to have as a weekend getaway so that she could just relax.

Some of the owners were just down right rude and had no business dealing with the public. Don’t be that kind of owner. Remember that these are your guests not your pests

Mustang resort has been great to us for several years. No junk campers / sites. It’s gated and usually very quiet. We have waterfront and easy access to a nice boat ramp. It’s also very close to restaurants.

Yes Fork could use a Good Sam RV park. This would raise the standards. People will be willing to pay for luxury. We are full RVers and enjoy nice places

I love Caney Point Rv due to everything is waterfront. And plenty of room and trees every where.

I do wish lots could be a little larger. A place with washer and dryer would be nice if you stay for longer periods of time. We already have a large ramp with 2 other smaller ones.

That is how we feel about Pelican Point.

I guess wherever you end up will turn out good. For my wife and I, we wanted security, and at Bridgeview, we have that. There isn't much that goes on that Bruce doesn't know about. Plus he keeps it clean and adheres to the rules of the park.
I had a bad accident in June when my boat got swamped during a storm on the lake. Just about totaled it.

That happened in the evening, and after cleaning up lures that floated by for the next 2 hours along with other fishing gear, I finally left to go eat. At 11:00PM, I went down to check on my boat and there was Bruce, pumping out the boat, and working to help me get it out of the water. That means a lot to me, at 71, none of that stuff is easy anymore. So, I'm partial to Bridgeview

One that had a swimming pool would get my kids to go more often.
