FREEPORT, Fla., June 20, 2012 – Live Oak Landing, an RVC Outdoor Destination vacation property, has completed numerous improvements to the resort, just in time for the summer travel season. The property added more than three dozen modern RV sites and several new amenities designed to enhance each guest’s stay.
A screen-enclosed saline swimming pool with connected observation deck and lounge area, large playground area and air conditioning in the resort’s pavilion are among the new additions to RVC’s Live Oak Landing. Handicap-accessible boat tours are another new feature highlighted at the outdoor destination. These charters – called “Pondtoon” boats – allow individuals with disabilities to navigate the water on vessels specially manufactured to accommodate wheelchairs. Additionally, RVC increased the number of RV sites on the property, nearly tripling the number of space available for RV travelers.
“When we opened the property in November 2010, it was important to us to first define our core audience and add amenities as our guests requested them,” said Neil Sorrell, general manager at Live Oak Landing. “So, after talking to our guests, we pinpointed additions that will give them exactly what they’re looking for in a memorable outdoor travel experience.”
At Live Oak Landing, guests have access to Florida’s Emerald Coast beaches and a wide range of onsite activities, including fishing charters, scooter, bicycle and boat rentals, and activities pavilion with a flat screen TV.
