Gulf View RV Resort, Punta Gorda FL.

Location; Gulf View 10205 Burnt Store Road Punta Gorda Fl. An Encore park. Just off State route 41.
Date; 1/15/12-1/22/12
Staff; The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Price; We stayed under a thousand trails special for $139. week plus $3. a  day resort and tax. About $170. total. I believe regular price is about $40. per night. they do give several different club discounts. call for rates and discounts.
Site; We had a pull thru full hook up site, with 50 amp electric.  The roads are paved, the site was grass and gravel. The site was very tight. No privacy between sites. some sites had a small patio. the roads are very narrow. 
Big Rig friendly; Not really,but. The roads and sites are very narrow. With very careful maneuvering and maybe having people move cars you can get into the sites. There were a lot of big rigs here, but is not easy to get into the sites. Some are just not possible for large rigs. There are some bigger sites in the back, but they seem to all be seasonal sites.
Amenities; This is a very, very active resort with something going on all the time.  They have a new clubhouse.There are the usual RV Resort amenities. There is a small boat lunch ramp on a creek that goes out into the bay/gulf. Everybody was very friendly. One day they had a free burger cookout for guest.
Laundry; There is a nice clean laundry with about 8 machines. Never had a problem using it.  They have garbage pick up at your site.
Phone/Wifi/TV; Verizon worked well. Wifi in the club house. TV over the air was good with all the major networks.
Dog friendly; Yes, can walk the dogs any where. Bu, No fields or enclosed dog runs.
Night; Good lighting at night with some road noise.
Book exchange; Small book exchange.
Comment; Very close to shopping and many restaurants in the area. Walmart about 3 miles. Sweetbay about 1 mile. Good paves roads for walking or biking. the pool is a little on the small side, but never seemed crowed.
Opinion; A nice clean very very active park for seasonal rver's.  No "Wow or It" factor. We would not stay here again (but coming back for a Rally in about a month) because it is to tight for a big rig. that said it is a very active park for seasonal stays.
