THIS FACILITY IS BEAUTIFUL AND CHILD FRIENDLY. THE WOMEN IN THE OFFICE A DIFFERENT STORY. SOME OF THE MOST RUDE PEOPLE I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED AT A FACILITY. IT WAS NOTHING LIKE WE HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. OBVIOUS FIRST TIME VISITORS ARE NOT WELCOME.
We stayed in one of the studio apts. The furniture was totally uncomfortable and stained. The TV was mounted too high on the wall. Why have a stove with an oven when there isn't enough counter space. The refrigerator was dirty, rust on the door and a thick piece of ice in the freezer. Also the oven itself had dried oven cleaner all over the interior. We did get this cleaned by a very polite worker. There needs to be a table of some kind in the bathroom for supplies and more towel racks. The ice machine in the laundry room was inop most of the time and we reported it. When we took walks on the grassy areas, we stepped in piles of dog waste. I actually saw people out there letting their dog go on the ground and walk away. I must say the staff was very professional and the cleaners were very polite and helpful.
Small and tight to get into, felt like we were on display for our fellow Rv neighbors to enjoy. It was like a look at me location, staff was not well informed about anything no matter what you asked them. This sight price was not correct, so do not be surprised when you check in at the desk. For the price you will pay for long term stay, there are much better Military Rv parks out there trust me. Ft. Benning MWR is just taking advantage of active duty and retired Military Vets the should be assumed of themselves.
Not what it used to be!!!! We stayed there for a full month and had ample opportunity to observe. The people that work there just don't care - the exception to that attitude is the marina workers, they were great. We would point out a problem area that needed some attention and were always told the same answer - "Oh,ok." Nothing was done to resolve the issue. It was an attitude of It is not my job. I don't think you could grow a better crop of sand burrs. They are everywhere. If you and your dog go out, plan on coming back with burrs in the dog's paws. In short, the place was great at one time - but the lack on management has let it become very disappointing. The Destin area is still great - it is a shame this facility has been allowed to get to this condition. They have a set or rules for guests, but nobody follows them. People walk by the no smoking sign at the pool and sit down to have a smoke by poolside. There are rules about noise, but again nobody cares and the staff will not do anything to solve a problem. One has to question why have the rules if none of them are enforced. I will not be back!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very nice RV park. Tight but everyone is respectful. Wonderful pool, very clean. Nice area to take walks in. Very close to Eglin Beach Area. Centrally located so you can get anywhere in minutes. Good Wi-Fi. Restrooms/showers/laundry could use more attention. Staff was great. Bring your own change for the laundry if you plan on using it. For the price, overall experience was good. We'll be back...
Just went in to check it out without having RV along. Good thing. The RV's are closer together than anything I have ever seen. Wonder why??? Rest of place looked great, price was fair. I would never think about going there unless was staying in one of the apts or cabins. My idea with the RV is to have some room to walk or look out of the RV. No place to park vehicle either. And no idea what to do with the dog. You have a limited area for that and it not close to the RV parking at all. Would be good if you just had a van to park there. The guys with the bigger rigs had to be crazy to stay in such a place.
