This place is good if you have several children and don't mind noise / congestion. Campers are way too close to each other, EVERYONE has a golf cart/bike/roller blades and the parade is endless, so if you want privacy this isn't it. We were told to leash our pets and clean up after them but found 4 or 5 pets not leashed, and actually watched our neighbor bring his dogs to our campsite to do their business - and of course left it. Employees were friendly, but did not have answers to 95% of our questions. Big disappointment for us. (Small laundry was always clean) Doubt we will return....
We stayed in spot 43, along the canal for 1 night.
Restrooms/shower: Individual bathrooms, they were clean and I loved the privacy.
Activities: We only stayed overnight so didn't utilize any activities. But there seems to be plenty to do; beach, boat rentals.
Restaurant: Was fine, store was nice too.
Grounds: Roads were fine, our spot was level, we didn't have any neighbors so can't comment on the proximity/nearness. Didn't notice they were close together. There are cabins, seasonal, and permanent residences. Everyone we met was very nice.
We would stay again.
I stayed at Stony Point because of the Good Sam ratings which are exceptional. However, during our initial check in and subsequent six day stay we were quite disappointed and firmly believe that Good Sam needs to take another look at their ratings for the park.
Most of the resort is set up for seasonal people with mostly park models and seasonal RV sites. The overall park is spaced very close together and over the years the seasonal park model and RV site owners have accumulated quite a lot of stuff which is in some cases just packed all over their sites.
The absolute worst part of the entire experience at Stony Point was the temporary or daily/weekly/monthly sites. It seems this part of the resort was a complete afterthought and very poorly designed. The sites leave much to be desired in the way of being level. Huge pines which are quite beautiful leave many problems with extending slides and awnings. The sewer and electrical hookups are in odd positions in relation as to where the RV should or would be parked. Every site is situated so the adjacent site will park with their door facing your door. And they are so close together you are literally living in each other's sites. This may be great if you know your neighbors and enjoy the company. But, completely out of the realm of most people's comfort zone and personal bubble.
I found the restrooms to be inadequate with only one full toilet and two showers and urinals. They were usually not clean and were wet or flooded during our stay.
The resort is on a busy highway, think noise.
The good things are they launch your boat and with enough advance notice may have a sheltered slip for your boat. There is a restaurant and bar on site and the one meal we had was good. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They have bait available for fishing and the lake is very nice. The beach at the resort is also very nice.
I would really love to give it better ratings but, I just cannot mostly due to the RV park design. I really feel Good Sam did a disservice to its members by the ratings given this park.
