Looks like a nice park, but their website says they can only accommodate up to a 40 foot RV, is that on all sites? I sure hope not....we are 45 ft. 🙁

I believe that you won't have any problem getting in. Book in advance for a large site. My Landmark is 40' and I've never had a problem getting in and always had room to spare.

For some reason Sun RV cooperate office has chosen to keep their website max length to 40'. I have yet to stay at a Sun Park that wouldn't accommodate our 45ft rigs. Joyce, at Rock Crusher, and I have spoken about this length issue. In fact she brought it up to me and said though they have a mix of short/long sites we wouldn't have any problems for our rally.

I've been there many times I don't really see a problem.

There's so much to do around here. Bay Port Inn on Sunday is always packed.
You can make a reservation for a large party and the food is always great. Speak to Melissa. Open mike is alot of fun. Dancing dancing and just great music. They also have River tours on the Crystal & Halls river. Manatees, Dolphin and alot of Eagles. The old Florida scenery is beautiful.
