This is another of our experiences
where we stayed on site while we worked there, Jerry worked at the Merry Moose, I worked in the store and we both did security after hours.
We also spot checked the restrooms and showers but since their cleaning crew was so great we did not have much to do.
Most sites were very rustic
and under trees, finding satellite for us was impossible but they did offer
cable so that is what we used while parked here. Most sites had a heavy cover of trees and we missed the sunshine and the mold had some great time to fester and grow more inside our rig.
Prices were high but this
area has only a few short months to make money due to weather and they were the
same as others in the area. They also
did NOT offer any sort of weekly, monthly or seasonal rates it was always by
the daily rate only no matter how long you stayed which will probably change
due to the new owners.
Workers and management were
very good folks to work with but since Sun Communities just bought the place
there was a lot of miscommunication and procedures that were not in place that
should have been.
The hiring process was a nightmare. The corporate office does not understand that
this was a short season and when it takes weeks to finally make it through the
process then usually folks like us have already found other work and have
already made a paycheck and moved on by the time they have completed all the
nonsense. We stuck it out but lost weeks
of pay. Because of this process they
were understaffed and it started to show on the workers they had and we were there
only for a month to help alleviate this so they could find more help. That never happened by the time we left but
they knew we were only there for a short time but we did feel bad leaving them
without any replacement or additional help that they so needed.
Rowdiness was not tolerated,
we know since we did security at night and were informed to shut it down quick
since it was a very family oriented campground and unruliness was unacceptable.
There will be major changes
in the next few years so this review will be obsolete because Sun Communities
has some major renovations and changes planned to be completed by next season.
