Three Flags RV Resort

1755 East SR 44
Wildwood, FL 34785
1/17/2011 - 2 nights

This is a Thousand Trails park that we paid $13 per night for a pull-thru FHU with our Coast to Coast membership. They had a $3 additional “Resort Fee” on top of the $10 we pay through our membership. This is becoming a more frequent occurrence during peak season in many locations.

They received a Five Star Resort rating, for which we are not sure how that rating is calculated, this is a very nice park, but not a five star resort.

Sites were grass and sand and very spacious, we could actually fit two of us into our space. There were very tall trees throughout the park but we were able to find one without any of them.

There are two separate parts of this park, the front part for the short timers and the rear for the more long timers, we were put in the front area. Many of the amenities were located in the rear area.

There was a big laundry facility that had ample machines that could accommodate many loads, we did not use them but at the time we were checking them out they were all available.

The recreation area was under major construction, they were renovating the entire interior with new tile and other items. We were advised that it would be completed by the following week. Our plan is to utilize this convenient locale once again while we are in the Florida area, so we will then update our review regarding this area.

The pool was at the front of the park, right next to the office area. There were restrooms attached but they did not have showers in them, plenty of room for them but none were installed, very wasted space. We did not locate the other restrooms for photos but will attempt to do just that on our next visit.

Phone coverage was excellent, we used our Verizon MiFi with full bars that worked wonderfully.

I had to check and see if there was a new Thousand Trails park I didn't know about. Actually, it's an Encore park and even though Encore owns it and Thousand Trails, it's still not a Thousand Trails park. I wish it was but it's not ... so sad. Enjoy Florida. You've certainly traveled across country fast.

We are not Thousand Trail members but when you go to their website, this park is there. Click on the title on our blog and it will take you to this website. We assumed due to this findings that they were part of TT, please let me know so I can correct this if in fact it is not part of TT.

This park is part of the TT/Encore/MidAtlantic system. If you are a TT member you need an Elite membership inorder to use the park as you would the Orlando or Peace River Resorts. Unless you are a full timer and travel the eastcoast a great deal, an upgrade to that level would be extremely expensive ($3000-$4000). I don't think the Elites have been on the market long enough to get them at a reduced rate through a broker or transfer. FYI the $3/night resort fee is a common Encore charge and is not season related. I agree the park is nice, but 5 stars, no way. There is no cable TV, and if you want WIFI you have to purchase it through TENGO. The park is also prone to getting "soggy" when it rains heavily. Although the roads are paved, you are parked on grassy sand. Also, it is not a gated park, thus, the security is not the level you have at a TT resort.
