The park, which was been in its Pasco County location since 1968. It is a clothing-optional facility that has mailboxes outside its gate, but when a package does not fit, the regular carrier has no problem delivering them inside the camp, residents told WFLA. FedEx and UPS also deliver on a regular basis. But when one female carrier subs for the regular mailman -- and it happens frequently, residents said -- packages do not get delivered.
“She marks it undeliverable, whether it fits in the box or it doesn’t, so we don’t get the mail that day,” Hudak said. “And sometimes the mail is important. Like with our neighbor, medication sometimes. You can’t wait until Monday or Tuesday to go get it.”
Leonard Rusin, a disabled veteran, is fed up that every time one carrier is working, he has to go to the post office to pick up his packages.
Rusin describes the community as a family and says the mail carrier needs to be more professional.
“There’s a postal creed and it doesn’t say anything about not going into a nudist resort,” Rusin said. “I pay for a service, and I expect that service.”
Enola Rice, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Postal Service, told WFLA the carrier is doing nothing wrong. Rice said in a statement that “carriers are not required to deliver beyond the centralized units,” and if a package does not fit in the large parcel lockers outside the community, notices are left for residents.
