Pros: most are nice neighbors

Cons: read below

I can agree that there is too much DRAUMA in this place. I can also say as a long time resident that this place use to be safe and the manager use to run out when there was a problem and did her job instead of expecting us to do it for her. things have changed in life and time and everyone has to adjust. Hopefully things will get better once management realizes there is more to her job then sales and starts to worry about the communuity and residents and she really is a nice lady thats the sad part. I am sorry people grill your kids about there life that is sad a kid should be able to go and play and not have to worry about people questioning them. I am hopeing one day this place might go back to the way it use to be were the manager will care about residents and safety of the community. Till then we will have to work as a community even thought its nto our job sicne we cant control who comes in and who doesnt. I know the feeling about having to keep your kid locked up it is sad i know. ANd yes you are right maintence is great and always gets things done right. Well good luck too bad you couldnt stay here longer I know I wish i could get out also most of the time.

Lamplighter is the a great place to live. i have lived in parks/communities like these for the last 10 years and this one is the best so far....at least in Tampa. The amenities are fantastic for my kids and me, the staff is courteous (becasue I am courteous to them) and the area (Lamplighter and the surrounding areas) are perfect for what I need and close to my job. I have lived here for three years and have had no issues w/ any of the residents. there are or were a few problem kids but I beleive they are gone now....but what neighborhood doesnt have mischievous kids? My kids have gotten along with the other kids in the neighborhood and they have made great friends. The manager, Corinne is a great manager....she really cares. I read some of the other reviews regarding my community and I gues these people have nothing to do but look at everything negatively....I wonder why then...if it's so bad..they still live here. You ahve to wonder about people sometimes. Anyways, an acquaintance of mine used to work in the office and i know first hand back ground check and credit checks are done and done thouroughly. So with that I feel safe...and again...nothing negatively has happened to me. BUT I have always minded my own business anyways and dont look for drama. Anywhere you live...if want drama it will find you...but not here. If you have kids and earn a relatively modest salary...for the price this is a perfect palce to live.

Pros: Close to work, good amenities, pool, river, I75 ( can be anywhere anytime)

Cons: only 2 parking spots for my home

.

This use to be the best community in Tampa, in last 3 months there has been a molestation on a child under 12, there has been several arrest in the community, the new manager does not do a back ground check on the adults or the children, the old manager use to do background checks on all, yes there were times when she gave someone a chance but got kicked in the butt for it. But she was fair. We need more of her not someone who yells at you for some minor something, the park has gone down not like it use to be. But all will be happy with an idiot that knows nothing but sales where she should be. Oh by the way the boy that molested the girl under 12 is only 15 way to go manager what happen that you let someone in our park like that.

Pros: Pool clean and heated, close to shopping,

Cons: To much talking about others, tell other residents your problems, lots of yelling in office

.

When i first got here i thought it was going to be a nice place ... I was wrong. On the surface it looks like a nice place but once you are here for a while you see all the problems and drama (most of witch come from the office). I think any good review of this place probably comes from the office. Most of the residents here are tired of all the problems and rumors come from the office. I am looking for a place to move to but i dont want to move my kids in the middle of the school year. I am afraid to let my kids leave the house because the older kids in the neiborhood are sexualy active, even in public places and the people in the club house seem to start rumors about ramdom residents and tell you they heard it from your niebors. I havent seen so much drama since high school !!!
i was impressed with the club house when i first got here , untill my children told me they didnt want to go to the clubhouse cause the ladies that run it just want to ask personal questions about them and thier home/family. they do like to go to the playground but if you dont go into the clubhouse to submit yourself to thier qustioning they ban you from the playground and that the ladie who run the clubhouse treat them unfairly. When i asked management about it the main manager yelled at me that she dosent care and will back up anything her employee said and to quit yelling at her ! I am amazed they havent been sued! I would recomend a tent under a bridge before i would recomed this place. I cant wait for the end of the school year so we can leave! I think the only good review you will see about this place were written by the office employees. But i do think the maintenence staff is good.

Pros: it has amanities but the price you pay in drama isnt worth it

Cons: too much drama/ too many rumors/ office personel are at the heart of most problems

Used to be a nice place. Main manager is a sweetheart. New assistant manager helper seems under par,. but I guess finding good help at 10 bucks an hour is very difficult. Too many kids allowed to run crazy here. Gate is always broken and left open. Not good.

Pros: close to 75

Cons: poor management helper

.

Kid friendly. Pet friendly, pool is always clean lots of activities for everyone, cool parties, gate is nice to keep undesirables out, But as everything is nice the manager has a tough time keeping up with all the work she has to do to keep the park clean, tries hard but im sure she would like to butt heads with some of the people that are nasty, i have heard them myself cuss her like a dog but never repeats what they say back to them. I could never do the job she does, i know she works close with the sheriffs department to keep things under control, yes i would recommended friends to her the river front is perfect for picnics and having a birthday party or just a plain cook out, so if you are looking to buy a mobile home call her she will be glad to sell you one and it will be great having some new people to move in. My family an i love it here.
As for the complaint that written befor me i bet that the person was evicted because the manager does not take any junk from anyone. This place is great I LOVE IT!!!!!!

Pros: heated pool, great playground, close to shopping, we have lots of activities

Cons: to many kids

I agree with crazymoon's review, I used to live in Lamplighter park until a few month's back, and I left because of the way the park has changed, it is for the worse. Every single thing crazymoon said in his review was correct, and the older kids and teenagers run around and steal people's things turn on people's water and break into sheds, and there is no security, just an old man driving around every now and again on a golf cart. The clubhouse hosts crafts, and potluck dinners now and then, but no one wants to go to the dinners, and the crafts usually have low turn out as well. The main manager, she has been there a long time and is a good manager. The other one is abrasive at best. Like her pitbull!

Pros: None.

Cons: Over-priced lot fees, hard to sell once you buy, and the water/sewer charges are not included in rent. Not enough security.

My family and I have lived at Lamplighter for over 7 years and more too come. There are several reason we hope to remain for many more. They are as follows: when ever we need help the office manager and assistant manager are eager to stop every thing and address the situation at hand. Lamplighter's maintance men work hard to keep our community looking cleana nd attractive. We all receive monthly news letters detailing all activities, functions, jokes, crafts and numbers were all departments can be reached(courtesy patrol, sewer and water) 24/7. As a parent I am relieved and greatful that my children can come to the clubhouse for constructive activities under the supervision of Lamplight's supervisors. Every holiday Lamplighter celebrates with activities such as: potluck dinner's, visits from Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, Mr. and MRs. Peter cotton tail. Our children make crafts for all holidays including Christmas gifts for our vets at the VA hospital. Its a warm feeling when our children bring home father's day/mother's day gifts. It is comforting to know that our children have a "safe" place to enjoy their time away from home. We also have planned Physical activities for our children all supervised. Again, our manager and assistant manager is on call 24/7. Lamplighter works with single and all parents to help keep their children busy and safe. All lamplighter activities, snacks and prizes are all free for residents, including trophies for Lamplighter's pool tournaments. I tell everyone at my job about our community. I am proud to be a resident at Lamplighter Mobile Home Park. I can't imagine any one else going above and beyound for what Lamplighter does for there community.

Pros: Amenities, I-75,centrally located for schools,hospitals, shopping,colleges

Cons: None

Years ago this park used to be well-kept and clean. The neighbors were friendly and there really wasn't a lot of "trash" in the trailer park. Well, in the past 15 years, I have watched the park take a turn for the worse. Now, the kids run wild, the security is lax at best, the front gate is rarely shut, even in the evening, and the management is far below par. The clubhouse needs a good cleaning and painting, that is, if the wood isn't as water damaged as it looks! The children's playground is graffiti-covered, the slides ruined, and there is a wooden board where the tube slide once was, before the teenagers ruined it. There is always glass in the surrounding sand also, which isn't so great for the children's feet.
My grandchildren used to like to visit us here, but now there is no nice park to play in. The manager no longers seems to care about the aesthetics. The assistant manager is loud. The monthly newletter is full of spelling errors and isn't worth taking off the doorknob where it is hung monthly from an elastic band.
It is depressing. One woman told me her dog gets attacked by the manager's ill-trained canine every 3 weeks, but as she is the manager, nothing gets done about it. Someone else told me kids keep turning on their hose in the middle of the night and their monthly water bill has skyrocketed. There is graffiti on the stop signs. Kids mull around late into the evening. Theft is rampant. This park is in dire need of new management, in my opinion. Very sad, as it used to be such a nice place to live!!

Pros: Close to I-75.

Cons: Poor management, unkept, getting worse,
