Have stayed here several times because it is the closest campground to Central Florida R&P. It has all the amenities you would expect KOA to have including an escort to your site 24 hours a day. Employees are friendly and helpful. Roads are paved, grass between sites, sites are either concrete, gravel or grass. We were able to wiggle back and forth a bit to get a satellite signal between the palm trees, electric was a little low but not enough to trip our surge protector. Water pressure a little low and they were working on the sewer system. It is big rig friendly, just a hair tight. We arrived after hours, the employee that escorted us to our site changed it because he wanted us to have more room. Pool and dog park are great and there is stuff for kids. Will stay here again.

Former KOA that time forgot. Needs updating and maintenance. Employees were friendly enough. I would say big rig OK, but the roads are sand and sites are grass. It rained while we were there. We were able to leave without getting stuck but others were not so fortunate. The highlight was a continental breakfast that included waffles - excellent! Water pressure good, laundry room clean, and no problems with electricity or sewer.

Great for big rigs. Sites and roads are concrete. Sites are long enough to disconnect and have room to park. Grounds are immaculate and well cared for, trees are around the perimeter so no problem obtaining a satellite signal. Excellent water, electric, sewer, WiFi, laundry, and showers. Not good for kids - no planned activities or playground. There is a lake for fishing. It is next to Shady Pines RV sales and service. They have a good selection of parts and hard to find stuff. Would be a good place for a small rally. There is a nice common room and kitchen. Have stayed here before and will again.

Thousand trails campground open to non-members. Do NOT follow your GPS through the neighborhood, go to the big Thousand Trails sign. We went through the neighborhood and it was very tight. Campground is nice, set into the hills, camp sites are spread out, and roads are paved. The area is in a multi-year drought. The lake was so far down its banks it is hard to see. Tons of wildlife, deer, hawks, etc. We had a back-in site, plenty of room, gravel, full hook-ups. Water pressure and electric were good. We paid extra for 50 amp. Lot of trees but we were able to get a satellite signal. San Antonio is not far. Would camp here again.

Rate includes Good Sam discount. Friendly staff does what they can with what they have, but it needs updating. Former KOA. Grass sites, gravel roads, satellite locked on, Sprint cell worked. Big rig tight - best to stay up front. Camp sites are wide but not not exceptionally long. Road to the campground is a little questionable, a sign verifying one is going the right way would be helpful. Would stay here again.

Rate includes KOA discount. Grass sites, gravel roads, big rig friendly, long sites, long enough to disconnect the from the 5th wheel and not worry about blocking the road. Stayed up front for one night, did not use restrooms. Satellite locked on easily, Sprint cell worked. Easy on/off the interstate, little bit of road noise. Would stay here again.

Rate includes Good Sam discount. Nice park, friendly people, stayed up front, easy on/off I-10, some highway noise, only stayed one night and did not use the restrooms. A little tight but big rig friendly. We did not get any sense of unease.

Rate includes KOA discount. Gravel roads, concrete sites (100 amp available), friendly staff. Only stayed one night, did not use any of the amenities except the free newspaper and included breakfast!! Very easy on and off the Interstate; stayed up front so there was some highway noise but worth the convenience. Would stay here again.

Rate includes KOA discount. Super clean, nice people, easy on/off the highway, convenient. Stayed one night, long enough to relax in the pool and do laundry. Yes, there was highway noise but the convenience was worth it. Paved roads, concrete sites - long and level - grass between sites, short walking trail to the Colorado River. Sprint cell worked well, clear satellite signal. Big rig friendly. Entrance is in the front, exit is out the back into a residential neighborhood. Follow the sign posted at the exit. It says no waterfront sites but tents can camp very close to the Colorado River. Would camp here again.

Rate is a rally discount. Great place for a rally, fully equipped kitchen, meeting area, BBQ, directly across from drive through sites. Sites are gravel, concrete patio, blacktop roads, dog park, big rig friendly. EXCEPT, do NOT follow your GPS into this campground. There is a railroad track on Southcross Road with a small steep hill that will cause significant damage. Follow the directions in the Good Sam book. There is free Wi-Fi for two devices, Sprint cell & MiFi worked well; satellite is hit or miss depending on the site. Employees are great. Would stay here again.

Sadly we used this campground as an overnight stay, it is definitely a place I would go back to and spend a week. Good handicapped access, good access to restaurants, employees helpful... everything you would expect from KOA. The point of our trip was to deliver my parents from the polar arctic north to sunny Florida so the overnight stay was short.

Date of Stay:

Rate is with KOA card and points. Stayed one night, convenient to I75. Paved roads and sites; water, electric, sewer, wifi (worked well) and cable all included. They are turning the back two rows into one row to accommodate big rigs - yes, big rig compatible. Called to reserve a site, knowing we would be arriving at closing time or shortly there after. The manager said not to worry, she would wait! Not only did she wait, but so did her assistant who escorted us to our site and offered to help us set up! Sprint cell and DirecTv rooftop satellite worked well. Would stay here again.

Stayed 10 days for deer season. No water or sewer, electric only. The showers were warm and the water hot. Roads are paved; a few sites are paved, most are either gravel or grass. There are two or three sites with sewer. The City of Gladwin has Wi-Fi, but we were not able to pick it up in the campground; it is much lower than the surrounding neighborhood. If there is a lot of rain, it can flood. But the wind is blocked. There is an upper section with pull-through sites. There was only one employee, the manager, very helpful. In the lower section Sprint cell and MiFi worked; roof top satellite did not, blocked by trees; picked up 3 local TV channels on antenna. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Stayed one night, very convenient from I-75. Roads are paved and gravel, sites are gravel, Wi-Fi is $3 a day, Cable is $2 a day (80 channels); electric, water, sewer are fine. We needed a pressure regulator for the water - our tankless water heater loved it. Site was almost perfectly level! Sprint phone, Sprint MiFi and DirecTv rooftop satellite signals strong. Drive in looks tight but there is plenty of room. Employees very helpful. There was a dog park but we did not stay long enough to use it. Stayed in the back, in the longer sites. Would stay here again.

Rate reflectsa group rate. Came here for a Rally. This was a good choice for our Rally because the sites are at angles making socializing easy. The pavilion had electricity for our Pot Luck dinner. Roads are gravel, sites gravel and grass. Electric is on the passenger side, water & sewer on the driver's side. An extra electric cord is advisable. Power & water were fine, Sprint MiFi & cell signal poor, good signal with roof mounted DirecTV SD satellite dish, no fire rings, WiFi is $3 a day. Employees are friendly, professional, and helpful without being intrusive. Can hear the clip-clop of the Amish buggies as they go by. Definitely big friendly, pull-thru sites are plenty long enough.
