Realistic Snowbird Review Ending a 1-Month Stay
When we booked Reunion Lake we did so because of the amenities listed on their website specifically for snowbirds. We were extremely disappointed that the website isn’t only very misleading - it’s a flat out lie!. The website specifically states “We cater to snowbird campers nationwide!” It continues with “Open 365 Days a Year” “There’s no off-season at Reunion Lake! Visit us any time of year, any season, and enjoy year round entertainment and amenities at the south’s most luxurious RV Park”. These statements are quoted from their web site. We found many amenities “closed for the season” to reopen April 1st - this is in stark contrast to their website statements. While the outdoor deck overlooking the lake is available, the “Adult-only pool with swim-up bar” that was listed as available to snowbirds was closed for the season, the adult-only pool was accessible, but so cold you could not go past your ankles. The family pool was accessible, however it too was ice cold - no one was getting in. The website also lists that it will have activities for kids at the family pool - what activity, we never saw any kids activities! The “Giant outdoor amphitheater” that was listed as a snowbird activity was never used the entire month we were here, even though there were ample opportunities available with the airings of the national football playoffs and Super Bowl. How about that fitness center they say they have, well, it’s one treadmill, one stationary bike, and a TV that plays 1 station - ESPN - hardly a fitness center (yes, we did inform the front desk of the TV situation and as of this review it still only has 1 station). The Founders Lounge was listed as being open Friday - Sunday - nope, that’s not correct either, they're closed on Sundays. How about that Poolside Grill that is supposed to be open Friday and Saturday, November - March? Well, it’s closed for the season also! Where’s the pool tables? Well, the pool tables are available at the Founders Lounge which is open Fridays and Saturdays beginning at 4pm, and you have to feed them quarters! Would you like to attend any snowbird activity, say a horseshoe tournament, shuffleboard contest, corn hole get-together, or maybe a pot-luck lunch or dinner? Nope, not happening here! Nope, no activities for snowbirds here at Reunion Lake. Should we go on to discuss the campers who have made this so called luxurious RV Park catering to snowbirds their residence, yes it’s happening folks - we have one right next to us, and when they're up getting ready for school and work, and letting the dog run about campsites, we have no choice but to be awake also! So in closing, if you are a snowbird looking for a snowbird park with amenities available and open for your use, you may want to bypass this one!
