Default Flagship Rally at Wekiva Falls

Has anyone who purchased from Flagship RV in FL considered going to this campground 7/24-27 for their rally? We took a look at the place today as we live only a short distance away and were shocked at the condition of the facilities! New owners took over 5/1 and have been trying to make improvments but it looks like they have at least a years worth of work before it meets any standard we would accept. Why pay the big bucks for a MH or trailer and pay to spend 3 nights at a place my dogs would find objectional.

Is this the place that has two springs coming up in the middle of their swimming area? We were there 25 years ago when we had a popup. The place wasn't in good shape then, but a lot can come and go in 25 years.

We got the offer in the mail the other day even though we have never had any dealings with Flagship RV. I took it as more of a promotional thing for Wekiva Falls.

It's the same place and probably hasn't changed-only gotten worse- they do look like they are making an effort-but not in time for this Rally.

WOW! What an improvement in 6 weeks. They have done an unbelieveable job cleaning up the place. There is still more to do but this sure was a great start. We were able to see the plans and when complete it will be a great campground and resort. We are looking forward to going back as soon as the weather is cooler here in FL. The staff was very helpful and appreciated our praise. I would recommend it a must see and stay for anyone traveling to this area.

Do they have full hookups? How would you describe the sites? Prices?

Yes, they have full hookups. They are working on getting more 50 amp sites available. There is both out in the open and shady spots. I don't know what they are charging since Flagship worked out a deal with them. It is a very large park so having some kind of transportation (bike) to get around is helpful. No much for a store and no rec room yet-they are part of the future makeover. These people just took over 5/1 and as I said it has already come a long way. No WiFi or cable either.

Just an update.... wife and I stayed there for a long weekend in June. They have done an amazing job of cleaning up and getting rid of the majority of the full timers who trashed the place in the past. Sites are generally huge (had to borrow a 50 amp extension cord and water hose which they graciously provided at no charge!!!). They had a DJ by the spring on Saturday and Sunday which drew a big day crowd. We were far enough away that the noise was not a problem. The store is very clean but not very large. They are making progress on the Rec Building which looks like it will be very nice when completed.

I belong to Good Sams and they are having the Fall Samboree at Wekiva Resort Nov 18 to 22. I hope they have it ready by then as they will be a lot of people there.

If you go, please give us a report back. It's been over 25 years since we last camped at Wekiva Falls. It's only about 70 miles away, though...
