First time staying on the way home from Florida. Nice park, easy access for big rigs, and long pull thru's that are gravel and fairly level. Big dog park and a nice area to walk around. This early in the season there where only 2 campers in the "transient" area but many, many trailers up on the hill and close to the lake. I would have rated it higher if it had cable and better sites for nightly folks.

If you haven't been to this park since the remodel and new sites you won't believe how nice a KOA this is. New roads, new super sites, new patio furniture, fire pits, etc. Absolutely great for big rigs.

If you are looking for DIRECT access to the beach this is the spot. Much work is being done on the facility. Last year a new beach pool and hot tub with shower and bath house....they are fabulous. They are working on the roads this year and my understanding is they will have the RV roads re-done by this time next year. The ocean front sites and several near the ocean are big enough for the biggest rigs...mine is 45'. If you have a big rig, spring for the extra fee and book an ocean front or beachside site. The comments about "tight" spots are from folks who are trying to get big rigs in sites down the side streets which are tight but navigable if you can handle your equipment. The staff is friendly, the maintenance crews are constantly working on the campground and it shows. Some of the ocean front sites have been purchased by new owners and they are investing in fixing them up. If you can get it, book ocean front site #230, it is BEAUTIFUL with new concrete, new gazebo and fresh landscaping and palms. One of the few that gives you some privacy. I met the owner and it is available to rent from April 15 thru December 15. The owner is on the site the other times. Also, site 219, 222, 223, 224, 225 are nice and easy to get into. (231-233) have a new owner who is investing in the sites this year and they are easy in and out sites. Sites 209,195, 250, 249 are large pull-through sites though not on the ocean they are nice and easy to get into. Overall, it has a nice "neighborhood" feel to it and the owners who winter there are nice folks. Once the roads are fixed I would rate this place a 10.

We've stayed at this park many times and the people are pleasant and try to be helpful. One BIG warning.....if it rains stay away. Literally every site is flooded to the point you can't get out your door without boots. The roads and sites need work and over the last 6 years nothing has been done. Yes, it is convenient for an overnight stop but 3 years ago I was told they where working on the sites and roads and they are as bad as ever. I'll drive a few mile further and stay at a rest area or a WalMart before we stay here again.

What a great place!!!! New heated beach-side pool and hot tub. Wonderful NEW bathhouse and they have done a lot of work on the interior roads. While we where there for over a month, there where at least 15 new decks built on sites and they are a great addition. I have a 45 foot coach with 4 slides and had no problem getting into the beach-front sites. This place just keeps getting better and better each year, and of course the direct access to the beach is THE big attraction. Very pet friendly, the staff is courteous and very helpful. The only warning would be for other big rig owners....some of the interior sites back from the ocean are a bit tight so stick with the beach front pads or the pull-throughs. Sites 222, 223, 224, 230, are great to get into because you turn up a road and back straight in. Many of the owners of the sites are doing upgrades to them and making them more like a "resort" style. I've already booked for 3 months next year. It is close to St. Augustine (old town) and there are literally dozens of great restaurants within biking distance. Pets are welcome on the beach. We drove our bikes each day for miles down the beach.

I just love this place. We only use it as a stopover for a night or two on the way to and back from Florida. The sites are easy to get into. No need to unhook. The people are very friendly and the folks who stay longer make you feel right at home. On our way down this year I must have had a dozen folks come over and say hi and strike up conversations. Clean, comfortable, dog friendly, nice folks, nice sites and easy on easy off the freeway. PERFECT!!

We visited this campground a few years ago, and it is really coming along nicely. The sites are large and the interior roads can accommodate even the largest rigs. Nice clean clubhouse, pool and hot tub. Many of the sites are being purchased and improvements being made to them like coach houses, extended concrete pads, etc. The only downside is that being a "resort" they do not offer cable, but I'm told they are working on it. We will certainly be back when we are in the South Haven area.

This resort is "picture perfect" in every way. The folks are friendly and helpful, the resort could not be better, the clubhouse is gorgeous! Close to everything, we day tripped to Charlevoix and Harbor Springs. Bike trail right out the main gate that you can ride for miles and miles. This place is the best of the best!

This is a nice simple easy in and easy out campground. Gravel sites are level and plenty big for our 45' with a tow vehicle. Grounds are well maintained and the people who work here are very friendly. We pulled in on our way north and a bad storm was imminent. Instead of making me go in and register, they led me to my site and told me to go ahead and hook up before the rain and come back to the office: nice touch. Hot tub was nice after a long day of driving and plenty of places to exercise your furry friends. Nothing fancy here but just a well run campground right off I-75

This is truly one of the nicest KOA parks we've stayed in. The premium patio sites are long enough for big rigs and tow vehicle. Internet worked well and they are still doing improvements from the flood. Interior roads are a bit bumpy but they ARE paved. Of the three parks on music valley drive we always choose the KOA because the others have a tendency to flood in the rain and do not have concrete pads. Good laundry facility, nicely stocked store and very friendly folks working there.

I'm very thankful that this campground stays open year round. On the way back from Florida, I needed a place to stay while my mother was in the hospital. The folks are friendly, the water is heated so using at the site is fine and the park is an easy in/easy out situation. Sites are level and plenty big for our 45' coach. We've also been here in the summer and it is a fun park especially if you have kids. Close to Detroit and suburbs with easy freeway access. WiFi worked well. We will definitely stay here again.

This is our 8th year visiting this park and I just don't understand some of the reviews. It is not a park you want to "blindly" pick a site if you have a big rig, mine is 45 feet, but there are plenty of sites that do work. The pull through sites near the beach or any of the beachfront sites are not difficult to get into. The interior sites would be very difficult for a big rig to maneuver. The BIG attraction here is simply the beach! Nothing fancy and few frills but the "main" interior roads to get to the beachfront sites are easy to get thru. My truck conversion which doesn't have the turning radius of class A's, was no problem. I stayed in site 219 which was a breeze: easy in and out. The folks are friendly, you can take your dog to the beach, drive a bike on the beach and even take your car on the beach. It is close to everything. Take the time to talk to the folks who work here when booking and avoid the interior sites close to the front. Sites 249, 250 are great pull through sites and the ocean front, back in sites: 223, 224, 232, 235, 237 allow you to make a turn and back straight in. If you are looking for an oceanfront campground you won't be disappointed. They are doing a lot of work on the campground right now with new gazebos on the sites, new fencing, bathroom renovations, a new pool close to the beach with a hot tub and new showers, etc.

Although we have been here before we where disappointed in Ft. Wilderness this time as a "total" experience. The sites are nice and roomy, hook ups convenient and most access in the big rig loops are fairly easy to get into and out of, but not all of them. You will need a bike or have to rent a golf cart to get around because this is a huge campground and there are no places to park your car other than at your site. There is no internet unless you rent a modem and hook it up yourself at the site. The prices are simply outrageous for food or beverages; .a hot dog, bag of chips and a pop are over $8.00: a sandwich by the pool with a pop for 2 people $20 + but the worst thing is the constant marketing everywhere you go. There are always lines in the theme parks so I guess I'm just getting too old for the mouse house...

This park is truly unbelievable! This was our third visit and by far it is one of the nicest if not the nicest oceanfront campground that we've been to. The camp hosts treated us like family...they even brought a 2 person kayak to our site for us to use while we where there. We've stayed in site 78 for several years and it has a huge tiki hut with TV, refrigerator, sink, table and chairs. Quite honestly any site you choose at this park is great. It is pricey but compared to other Key West campgrounds it is a deal!!! (We've driven thru almost all the private campgrounds for comparison and it is comparing apples and oranges. If you want a truly luxurious experience in the keys with private sites this is the only one.

This is a wonderful resort. It is fairly new so as the landscaping matures it will even be better. The staff was friendly and the setting was very peaceful. Not alot of road noise and the fountain sound was relaxing at night. Great clubhouse, pool and hot tub. We will definitely stay again next year. I also appreciate how easy it is to get around. We have a 45' motorhome and unlike other parks this one truly is big rig friendly. We stayed in a lakefront site (174).
