Barrington Hills RV Resort Hudson FL 12/6-12/13/10

Our rate was $17.15 per night, Thousand Trails special-$120. week.  Our opinion is neutral, we would most likely pass this park in the future.  It is a very well kept park, made up of mostly park models.  There are 399 sites, about 30-40 transient sites. The transient Rver's are mixed in between the permanent or seasonal park residents.  We welcome the camaraderie  of  traveling Rver's, and can't find much in this type park.  The weather was unseasonably cold during our stay, lows in the 30's, high in the low to mid 50's.  A few days warmer.  Our site was a tight back in  perpendicular to the road.  If it were more slanted it would have been easier to get into.  There was a slight angle but not enough to make it easier to back into.  It was packed sand with very little gravel.  We had full hook ups w/50amp electric.  A small cement patio about 8 X 10 . No table or fire ring.  Sites are small with absolutely no privacy between sites.  And you back up to within a few feet of the RV  behind you.  Our connections were on the wrong side and in the back.  We needed an extra hose to connect.  Water pressure was low.  Our sewer connection was on the correct side in the middle of the site.  There is a very nice and very clean laundry with about 10 washers and dryers, $1.50 each.  The laundry is connected to the bathrooms and showers. If you need these they can be very far from your site. These are the only bathrooms in the park. We do no use the bathroom, so can only guess they are as clean as the rest of the park. Our Verizon cell phone and air card had 2 bars, using our Wilson antenna and amplifier gave us 5 bars . There is wifi thru Tango, 1st 4 hours free, then there is a charge, not sure of the rate .  TV off our antenna was good for 4 networks and a few odd channels.    It is dog friendly, in that they have 2 small dog walking areas, a far distance from our site.  No area to run dogs off leash, or trails.  Not to much in the way of landscaping, but as said very well kept and clean. At night there is good lighting.  There is some road noise.  We were near the front of the park.  There is not anything in the way of hiking or kayaking in the immediate area of the park.  All roads are paved and it is easy biking in the park.  There is a heated pool.  They do have a busy activities schedule.  There is a small book exchange in the clubhouse. The reason we choose this park, other them the special price is it location.  Its is between Tarpon Springs and Homosessa Springs which we want to visit.  Also Close to friends we wanted to visit.  It is right off busy RT 19.  There is a super Wal Mart about 5 miles, and many other stores in the area.  Many many restaurant also.  Some residents are workers, and 2 of our neighbors left at 6AM 7 days a week,, waking us with doors slamming etc.
