RV living has it’s challenges, but this takes the cake! We tried to find a safe and secure RV park to ride out the pandemic and it turned into a nightmare. As with all of our challenges, we are sharing it with you so you can learn to avoid places like this and also to laugh at it with us. Because in the end, it was so beyond crazy, it ended up being pretty entertaining.
We also hope that the lot owners of this RV park end up voting out the current board members. This is a nice park with cool amenities and so close to one of the best beaches near Destin Florida. It’s a shame what this current board has done. We would consider going back, but only if major management changes are made.
Since releasing the first 2 videos, the Google listing for this park and all it’s reviews have vanished. It might be because some of our viewers were leaving negative reviews for the RV park without actually staying there. Please do not leave negative reviews if you have not stayed at this park. Just because the RV park board made poor decisions and harassed us doesn’t mean they deserve the same in return. Please treat everyone at this park with kindness, including the board members if you stay here.
Also, some of the listings below are not board members. They are just owners trying to rent their lots. Treat them with kindness and DO NOT leave negative reviews if you have not directly experienced that from that particular RV lot.
ALSO! Please DO NOT leave negative reviews on other RV parks in the area that may look like the same park. This has negatively impacted another park and owners in the area.
These are all of the listings we could find for Resort RV Park, Miramar Beach (Destin) Florida:

So sorry you had issues at the Miramar park. One can only imagine how personally unhappy the HOA board members must be themselves, in order to be so unpleasant to others. Karma is real, though. Their entire Google presence is now non-existent. It’s very sad.
Oh well, glad you’re getting out of there. BTW, the closing scene with Stuart was hilarious. 🙂
It’s funny we are going through some of the same things here. Not nearly as bad but that same mentality.for nearly two mo this we have been here at an Elks Lodge. They still constantly watch us and blow off any discussion. Yesterday one of the Trustees watched us dump our black tank ( the only thing not offered here) as if we were going to do something wrong. We’re the only rig in here out of nearly 20 spots, we’ve helped edge, cut up downed limbs and offer to do anything else, we’re still treated like outsiders.
I guess some people would be unhappy in paradise?
I read the hot and things sounds like they changed alot of stuff on the rules and regs. So sorry you had to endure that. I hope you find a nice place to camp. Prayers to your son I hope he gets well. Amy EMT-P. Although I lost my job, because of COVID.
In response to the “Harassed during Pandemic videos” I looked at the internet site for this RV Resort. I am wondering if the problems the board members had was a conflict of interest . From your last video #3 Tom said that possibly the board members owned more than one site in the park. So if they own more than one they must be leasing out the others. Maybe they were upset because you were renting your site from an owner that was not on the board. It could be a greed issue. None of what the board members were doing made any sense. At some point these “Board Members” need to get a life. This is just my thought as I was looking at the web site. It is strange that Barney would rather stalk people that is renting there and move their private property and go through the trash rather than clean the bathrooms. During the pandemic why would anyone want to dig through someone’s garbage? Anyway I know your glad to be gone. Prayers for Cheri’s son that they find out what is wrong and it is an easy treatment.
Just wondering why you didn’t have Cheri’s son stay in the rig with you once it became apparent there were problems with him staying in the “shed”?
This doesn’t sound any different then the harassment you get with a traditional HOA. Except, they best not step foot on my property.
I will be checking from here on out before we stay if there is an HOA.
I’m not seeing the name of the place that you said would be in the description of your last video part 3? You said that you were going to post this so people would be able to avoid it.
Why would you post a google review on Camp Gulf saying they were rude to you when this is another park. Mistake? or trying to promote yourselves by using Camp Gulf name? please remove it.
Yes, please remove this review!!
I have never stayed in a HOA park, but have read so many horror stories from people that live in HOA’s, that I don’t believe I would ever stay in one.
Could be that the board members also trying to force other lot owners into selling so they can own the park. The owners who are renting lots should sue the board members for…
How is Logan? I saw where you all were headed for more testing and just wanted to check on him.
Cheri……. regarding your sons sleep disorder. do some looking up on KLINE LEVIN SYNDROME
Wow after watching the videos and reading your blog it made me think of how people are reacting in uncertain times. Your advice to be kind and think of others was good advice and you had reached out to get to know or show gratefulness HOA had actuallydone their job of managingthe water issue. The whole situation reminded me of the scientific articles written about the hoarding of toilet paper and shortages as a result. The HOA board members and extended parties were using what very little power they have to feel like they had control in their life. We all can learn a lesson not to jump into causes or vilify or spread rumours but take a step back show kindness in how we treat others and respect. The authorities were very professional kind and showed understanding with good communication and you showed respect to them also. They also are living in uncertain times but remained impartial and did not weild power in an overbearing way but adhered to their work and the laws written in much more normal times.
WOW i see some of the lots are for sale. ALl the owners should replace the bad board members. What can we do to help?
Well thanks for the vido as i for one will never stay at a HOA , as I all was thought the space you rented was all yours , must say the one thing I would of done is marked sum money and put it behind my trailer . To see if they would take it and if so called the police to report a theft . I know I for one would not want to have a lot there as at any time a nabob can blow you in , as there are people sleeping in the shed . Be safe out there to all but the board members .
You guys are awesome! Some bad actors certainly jealous of celebrities in their park making them look like the slackers they are! Good job for posting this and bringing awareness to us all about this place!
