Pelican Carefree RV Resort – Marathon, FL

Campground and RV Park Reviews |

We booked to stay here for 2 weeks with our 32 ft. 5th wheel.

When we pulled up at our pitch, had it had not been for the fact that we had paid our balance on arrival, we would have driven straight out again. Cutting a very long story short this site (it is not a resort) does not cater for big rigs. It took nearly one hour for me with the help of 2 real friendly guys to shoe horn our camper into the pitch. It was so bad we had to get people to move their cars, trucks, tables etc etc just so I could get in. In the end my truck was almost at 90 degrees to the camper – thank God my Crusader camper will allow that without hitting the back of the cab!

In my opinion, don’t even consider this place if you have a big rig. I’m disappointed the owners don’t ask the size of your rig when you’re making a booking – they should tell you up front that the pitches are unsuitable.
