This our third year here in Okeechobee. The first year we arrived we were amazed at our choice of parks and how wonderful this KOA was and how much they had to offer. This is now our third year and the price keeps going up but many of us have found that the social calendar does not have near as many activities nor entertainment as it did in the previous years. The workers in this park or wonderful and kind and the showers and washrooms are very clean. We didn't even bother going to some of the dances this year as the entertainers weren't appealing. They used to have entertainment around the pool not just on Mondays with the volunteers but on many other days and that is not the case anymore. We have had a lot of problems with the showers not working properly in the ladies washrooms on several occasions you were either getting ice cold water or scalding water. The washer in in one of the area laundry facilities was broken over 3 weeks ago and still hasn't been replaced. Many vacationers use this facility and two washers are not enough. It is a known fact that a lot of people who have been here in the park for a number of years are not coming back due to the price and attitude of some staff and lack of things that used to be. In most cases if there is a price increase you usually get more amenities but this year there is less. We are booked once again for next year but we will be checking out other possibilities. It seems to me there is a lack of consideration and responsibility there never existed before. Corporate should be checking out just how many vacationers are leaving and why. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Travel Trailer.
