This place is 5 stars all the way. I've never seen such a nice RV resort before. It's so clean, lots of space, so many activities, the people are friendly as well as the staff. The club house has a nice workout room if you can't get out to walk around the grounds for some reason. There are plenty of washers and dryers in the laundry room. And the pool is located right there too! They are just finishing up the new dog park. I can't wait to get my pup out there. I haven't tried the pickleball or the shuffle board yet, but plan to very soon. The office staff are always so helpful. When we had to make some changes to our reservation or ask other questions, they were right there to help us. And the grounds crew are always out cleaning the place up, mowing and working on new improvements. The owners defiantly take pride in their park!

Booked 4 six months reservation for 2 campers, for 2020 and 2021 seasons paid for Background check fee they required & passed that, paid deposit of hundreds of dollars. Made these reservations by phone directly with staff. Staff even directed us to Site 432 stressed that we should book this sit while it was available. It made our two sites close to each other which is what we wanted. Seeing that this was a site that fit what we needed and that it put our two camper close to each other and after the staff said we should definitely get site 432 while it was available we booked it and the other site for our 2nd camper and booked both sites for 6 months each for the winter of 2020 and also for 6 months each in 2021. This was on the phone directly with a staff member and we received email confirmation of all our reservation and dates. Then a few days later after we had changed previously made plans and let go of our other reservations. We had made months earlier at different location (to be sure and had a site), they called and said we could not have the large site #432. Someone else (I am sure the staff knew this person) wanted it so they were giving it to them. They could not provide another site of the same size, type or 2 sites close to each other, so our two campers would not be close to each other. They had all our RV information, from another reservation which was the first reservation we made with Southern Oaks for the 2020 winter season and they had put us in a different (smaller site) site, then later decided our one RV was too big for that site so we worked it out and reserved the site 432 which is a large pull through site. Now they said we could not get site 432 and only offered us a much less desirable site separating our two RV's and putting us in a small site of the same size as the 1st reservation they felt was not large enough for our one camper and we had changed it to the larger site 432 and now they flat out would not honor the confirmed reservations we had for site 432. This is the largest and we considered it the best site they have for our needs. Then to make it worse they would not refund the background fee charge and would only refund part of our deposits even for the reservation clear out in 2021 which we only made to be sure to keep site 432 and our other site that had our two RV'S close to each other. This 2021reservation was over 13 months away. The staff member stressed how we should take site 432 while it was available so we did, then later after we had received written confirmation paid all the fees and deposits of hundreds of dollars, changed our plans and cancelled other revelations we had for the 2020 winter they call and refuse to honor the reservations that they had already confirmed for us and confirmed it in an Email in writing. This was not an act of nature or other reasonable reasons, it was being pulled to given to another customer and they did not offer us a site near the same size, not the same type of site and was not keeping our two campers close together and then refused to provide full refund. Now we were out our other reservations we had canceled after they sent us confirmation in writing. This was clearly a someone knows someone action or a plain old Bait and switch. Offer us a great site get us to book, take our background fees and hundreds in deposits and then only refund part of our deposits for even the 2021 season, when they are the ones forcing use to either except something we did not book, take a much less site at a completely different location in the resort or leave and then they act all upset, when we decided to not be pushed into a much less desirable site so they could give site 432 to another customer. No concern or respect for the confirmed reservation we had, simply tell us they we letting someone else have it. No concern for all the trouble it was causing us or anything and then they were so self-centered and money tight they held back part of our deposits on all the reservations even the ones for 2021. Not sure if what they did is legal or not but absolutely not wright. BEWARE of the staff at the RV Resort. We like the area and the RV park is ok but the policies and staff are not. BEWARE THEY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR RESERVATIONS, you may get there and then find you have a much lesser sit and nothing close to what you book and then even hold back part of your deposits if you don't except a much less desirable site that they are forcing on you.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. First and foremost, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience or dissatisfaction that you felt you experienced at the hands of our employees, it is one of our top priorities here at Southern Oaks to make sure our guests are provided superior customer service. With that being said, we would like to address your concerns with the hope that we can move towards an understanding. Your original reservation was for a much smaller RV, and several months after you made your reservation you reached out to us letting us know that you bought a considerably larger RV and that was the one you planned on bringing to our park. It was at this time we also informed you that your new RV could no longer fit in the spot you had reserved, and we had to see if we had the ability to accommodate your larger unit. We initially offered you a site that was supposed to come available, but it turned out the person that had that site would not be leaving due to plans falling through. The person that had that site was also a permanent guest that had been with us, in that spot for four years, so naturally we did not ask them to move and let them stay in their spot. After we found out the site we picked out for you was not going to be available we immediately followed up with you with several of other sites that were comparable and nearby, but you turned them all down. It was at that point you decided to cancel your reservation. We returned all of your deposits, in full, and charged a nominal processing fee at a 60% reduction of our normal fee for your troubles. Again, we apologize for any dissatisfaction you may have felt, but we did everything we could to accommodate your reservation change and to offer you a spot as close to your other RV reservation as possible. We hope you reconsider and stay with us in the future. Have a wonderful day, Southern Oaks Luxury RV Resort
