Styx River Resort, Robertsdale, AL.

We moved to Styx River Resort the day after Christmas because Blake's mom and dad were coming from Iowa. We needed to get out of the driveway for their new company.

These are pictures I took a few days later. My camera's batteries were dead, and it started raining right after we got set up.

This is a Ocean Canyon Property we joined about two months ago.  

There are 8 resorts in the southeast of the US that we can stay at for free for 21 days. Then we have to leave for 7 days, or we can go to one of the other 7 resorts for another 21 days.

This is the restaurant.

This is a view of the indoor and outdoor pool and club house from the outside.

The outdoor pool is located right next to the indoor pool. The outdoor pool is closed presently.

View of the inside of the clubhouse.

Indoor pool.

Jacuzzi also in pool area.

Another picture of the outside pool.

Behind the clubhouse and pool area is a play area with volley ball, shuffle board, basketball court, and play gym for children.

This is their sports bar.

We took a walk to the Styx River.

Beginning of the trail to the river.

During the summer there is tubing down the river. The resort takes you up the river and drops you off.


The water was pretty clear, but I don't think I would enjoy it.I would be worrying about snakes.

Back up in front of the sports bar and restaurant is a miniature golf area.

Another view of restaurant.

We are parked a row away from the clubhouse.

There are cabins family members can rent out also if they wanted.

Space between RV is about average.

We took B9. I do like that this park is on a hillside. When it rained, we were not sitting in a pool of water the next day. The only disadvantage is the resort is 50 minutes away from the girls and the coast. The membership also give us access to Resorts of Distinction for free, and North America Camping Club, and Coast to Coast for rates at $10 to $20 a night. We are hoping that within two year, we will break even with the cost of the membership. Then we will be really saving money.

  1. My boyfriend and I are thinking of spending three nights down here. Do you need a membership or can you just rent a cabin? And if so, do you happen to know the cost of the membership and if it is worth it for like, 1 vacation we'll ever take? Thanks!

    1. I am not sure if they let people rent cabins unless they have a membership. You might be able to stay there if you agree to go on their tour and talk to sales person about buying a membership. They let nonmembers come and stay in the park in their RV's for 3 -5 days if they take the tour and listen to the sells speech. If you do that, be very careful, as they have ways of talking you into buying a membership. I don't think it is worth buying a membership, unless you want to stay in the park at lest 3 to 4 times a year. You get a lifetime membership, but the price of $7000 to 10,000 can take a lifetime to break even unless you use the facilities a lot. You also have to pay annual dues of about $400 a year. remember if you do the tour and get talked into buying, you have 3 days to break the contract. We bought a membership and used it constantly because we are full time RVers. It took us 2 years to break even. For most people it is hard to break even with the annual dues.
