Wales West is a friendly and welcoming RV park - plus super cute with the trains

We found Wales West quite by accident after calling numerous parks from Pensacola on westward while evacuating from Hurricane Irma. All we needed was a safe spot to hook up and wait out the storm - but we found so much more.
First, the staff; so welcoming and they accommodated every rig they could with a lower "refugee" rate.
Second, the residents; all wonderful and friendly. We met most all of them and they were so concerned for us and glad we made it to their park.
The park itself is soooo cute. It has a resident part and a camper's part. But the best part was the trains! There is a railway station, the building covered in gingerbread, with trains going out around the park twice a day. There are steam trains and a small, sit-on-top train for kids. The park also has a big swim lake with a slide, hayrides, a haunted forest, and Santa's workshop. It is all lit up at night.
Each night they held a social where everyone came out to meet up. On our first night, we went to the s'mores social and the second night there was an ice cream social. We met park staff, residents, fellow Floridians fleeing the storm, and all the pups and kids along with. These were wonderful evenings.
The staff went above and beyond for us too. We were traveling with our two Siberian Huskies and, after two days of driving, really need to run off some energy. They do not have a dog park, but we took them into the children's playground, which was fenced, each night after the socials. The staff came out and didn't chase us out, but instead showed us how to turn on the lights so we could spend some time and let the dogs run around.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE AT WALES WEST! You made our stress go away and we had a marvelous stay. We would love to come back for Christmas to see the grounds all lit up for the holidays. I'm sure it will be magical.
