Eagle's Landing RV Park in Holt, Florida

Eagle's Landing RV Park in Holt was "home" for 5 months!  We had a "sweet spot," just across from the clubhouse, the bathrooms, & the laundry.  This is a very clean, tidy park with reasonably sized sites and very nice owners who take great care of their campground. Electricity is included, definitely a bonus on super sunny, steamy summer days. Although there are no amenities to speak of, there is an area to walk your dog or run your kids. ;) It is conveniently located right off of I-10, but is not excessively noisy in that respect. Because of its location, it was any easy commute to Milton for Steve and easy to get to Crestview for groceries & datenight. The clubhouse (after having no use of a clubhouse at our previous campground) was perfect for our older girls to do their individual schoolwork everyday. And, there was an unending supply of puzzles there, as well!

Reasonably priced laundry is another great thing about this park! With just $1 to wash and $1 to dry, I didn't feel the need to haul our clothes to the laundromat the whole time we stayed here. Loved that! During high Snowbird season, however, you have to time your laundry carefully as there are only 3 washers & 3 dryers, so it seems the laundry room is always hopping!

The biggest downside of this RV park, for us, would have to be that it is a campground geared primarily for Snowbirds. I think we were the campground entertainment. And, because the other people there were older than us, I felt a lot of pressure to keep the kids from being too noisy & unruly. To be fair, everyone was very nice, and we received a lot of compliments on our kids, from multiple people. (I did wonder if the ones who said they never heard our kids actually needed their ears checked...And, on various occasions, people sought us ought to offer things to us because they knew we were "the" family with kids in the whole campground.  Still, when it was time to move on from here, it was nice to move to a campground with a big yard & plenty of wide open space for the kids to just be kids!

One lesson learned:  If you take funny selfie's they might end up on the blog :)
