As other reviewers have reported, this is a very nice campground. We have been coming here since 2009, usually once or twice a year. If I had rated the campground during previous visits, I would have given it a 9 rating because I could never use the free Wi-Fi, and had to rely on my Verizon Hotspot. During some visits, the Wi-Fi didn't even work in the office. The Wi-Fi problems no longer exist. The campground has changed ownership since last year, and the new owners have upgraded the Wi-Fi system. During my current visit in April 2015, the Wi-Fi worked flawlessly. It was very fast with a strong signal. It is the best Wi-Fi that I have had at any KOA. The campground now rates a perfect 10.

We love this park. It is very convenient to the I-10, and at our site at the far end of the park, we couldn’t hear any road noise at all with the A/C on, and could barely hear any noise with the A/C off. Jennifer, the owner, is very friendly and accommodating. She and her husband even visited my wife and I in our coach, and we had a delightful conversation for about a half hour. She asked us if we had seen the rest rooms. We said that we didn’t use campground restrooms, but she said we should check them out anyway. We did and they were spotless and tastefully decorated. The laundry room has a waiting room adjoining the machine room with DirectTV and a plush comfortable couch. We don’t have pets, but I noticed a fenced in “Pet Park”. It was a short (less than 5 minute) walk to the bayou bordering the campground property. There is a fishing platform, and I was told by a local that there are plenty of fish there waiting to be caught. The internet service was phenomenal. It was very reliable and fast and it seemed as good as my Comcast cable internet service at home. There are treed sites and sunny sites, depending on preference and availability. We stayed for two days, and will definitely return in the future for longer stays

This is a really great campground with long, level pull through sites with plenty of space between the sites. Most of the sites are satellite friendly. My only complaint is the Internet service. It did not work for me during my 4-day stay. I had to use my Verizon Hotspot the whole time. I would have given a 10 rating if I could have used their Internet service. I would definitely stay here again.

Although this campground lacks some amenities that would be expected by transients, it is a very clean and well-maintained park. It is one mile from Florida I-95 exit 183. It is convenient to excellent shopping, restaurants, and beaches. It is a great low cost place for snowbirds to spend the winter. This is our 5th year here. As a long-term renter, we have our own campsite with a concrete pad and a lockable storage shed. Many long-term residents keep washers, dryers, and refrigerators in their sheds. Cable, phone, and modem hookups are available by contracting with local providers. My overall rating is based on long term, not transient stays.

The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. Although big rigs can be maneuvered into the campsites, I would not camp there again in my 42 foot motor home. While going to our campsite following hand signals of the helper, I nearly hit a short piling. Fortunately, the helper signaled me to stop, and I was able to backup and avoid it. Leaving the campground was not easy. I was unable to swing wide enough to avoid having my rear tires hit a rock hidden by a hedge near the front gate. I backed up and a staff member moved the rock so that I could proceed. Since there was no good place to hook up my toad between the campsite and front gate without blocking traffic, I elected to leave the campground and stop along the public road by the campground to hookup. If you do decide to camp there in a big rig, my advice would be to ride around the campground in the golf cart and carefully chose your site.

The bad thing about this campground is that the power is still unstable. We came with a group of 23 rigs, and we also overwhelmed the power system as a previous reviewer reported. I saw voltage readings of less than 100 volts. I would definitely not camp hear again and plug into their shore power.
