Camper Report recently published an article on the 10 Most Common Complaints Against RV Parks. We thought you might want to see how Floridays stacks up.
First, a little background. Floridays was never a “brand new” park for us. We purchased what was know as the Angle Inn Mobile Court in the autumn of 2010 — and it was an eyesore! But our location in one of the last remaining “old Florida” small towns along US Federal Hwy 1 made it an easy decision. Right away we got to work tearing out invasive plants species and replacing it with young oak trees and native vegetation to create year-round shade for the RV pads. In 2017, we added the washhouse with separate bathrooms and showers for ladies and men and a laundry facility with brand new washers, dryers and folding tables. Our 2017 videos of the Washhouse buildout have great aerial shots of the park.
We erected birdhouses to attract Purple Martin swallows, updated our Wi-Fi and electrical boxes, added a secure covered mailroom, and much more. We aren’t fancy, just honest.
So how does Floridays stack up to Camper Report’s top 10 complaints?
- Not enough space. We have 84 sites well spaced for privacy and all with pads.
- Bad attitudes from staff and owners. We never discriminate and have an on-site full-time park manager with tons of experience.
- Bad electric hookups. Our pedestals are correctly wired, have surge protectors, and are routinely checked.
- Gross water. Florida water quality in Martin County is considered reliable with high standards for excellence. Check it out here.
- Dirty bathhouses and common areas. Our bathhouses could be considered “fancy” because they are large and new. Common areas are well-maintained, but not “fancy.”
- Neighbor problems. We’re not a permanent residence park; maximum stay is six months. Most of our guests return year after year, know one another, and enjoy campfires, cookouts, and leisure time together.
- Un-level sites. Parking surfaces are designed to be flat.
- Mud, sand, and dirt. The park has a moderate grade for good drainage, and seasonal Florida rains are quickly absorbed by our sandy soil. Most of our roadways are paved which helps maneuvering around the park and prevents erosion. Outdoor rugs are encouraged.
- Bug issues. We routinely spray for ants and Martin County sprays for mosquito control.
- Feeling unsafe. Both the Hobe Sound community at large, and the Floridays community specifically, are close-knit and look out for one another.
