17 Parks near Fort Pierce, Florida
Jul 2016 - $38.00
Their store has almost everything you may need for your RV. The store is stocked well with things you would find at a convenience store and the people who work there are extremely friendly and helpful. They have Good Humor Ice Cream which is hard to find and the prices are very reasonable. The WIFI connection is very good; we think its because we camped close to the store. We ate lunch at the Coyote Grill Restaurant next to the store and the food and service was GREAT! They serve large portions and homemade specialties every day. The pool is spacious and clean with really comfortable lounge chairs; some shade. There's a Propane Fill Station on premises. Garbage is picked up at the sites every Monday and Friday. The maintenance men are friendly and will always help you out. It is very safe and the Ft. Pierce Sheriff patrols the park twice a day. The supermarket and beaches are close by and Fort Pierce has a lot of good stores. The Road Runner is very close to I-95, the Flying J's and the Florida Turnpike. There's a Chaplain on premises and non-denominational services are offered on Sundays. Entertainment is provided on Friday nights and everyone gets together in front of the store; its a wonderful family-type atmosphere. However, they say it gets very busy in season with a lot of Canadians coming down for the winter. We think it is a great place to stay for a few days. We also get a 10% Good Sam discount. Highly recommend it! - RV Dreamer

With about 450 camp sites...felt like a small fish in a big pond. Hate waiting till you get there for your site (we stayed a month.) Lots of Four month people and longer...they get first choice.
Women at front desk need to be more informed about events and activities...(they didn't know if signed up for Valentines Day party, dress or what to bring.) Other activities
too...some were downright cranky...some ignored customers.). (But....V.DAy party was awesome!)
People are friendly..French more reserved...but think a lot don't speak English.
We were excited about a Hot Dog Roast Sunday...went there. Found out you had to bring own hot dogs (and condiments!). So cheap!!! No potlucks. No morning coffees.
It is close to "cool" Vero Beach and beaches!!!
Our site had concrete and grass, mostly shady, and included a picnic table and patio.
No wireless for over two weeks. Wanted a refund...but no. Also charged $5.00 a day for Internet. Would not stay there again. - User3092

We stayed for three nights & somewhat glad it was only three nights. Our site was somewhat dirty with it not being cleaned off from pine tree cones, dirt, etc. Was a decent sized lot near the back & was good for short term stays. One thing, it is close to shopping & the beach. There are a lot of French speaking people staying there & somewhat keep to themselves. Camp store is well stocked & they have a restaurant there also. The staff was friendly upon arrival, but parking to check in can be confusing. - 1972 camaro

Very impressed with this county campground. Even though there was a little dust along the road in front of our campsite, it was not a problem. We backed up to a canal and had full hookups and a campfire ring. The layout was fine and we got good signal coverage for our DirecTV. We used the laundry facilities that were adequate. Nothing fancy but did fine. We loved the location and went for a couple of day trips up and down the coast. We would not hesitate to return. - rwarner22

Great place. Fishing and golf walking from my site. Site, staff and campers were excellent. We will stay here again.
Sandy and dusty. It would help if some would obey the speed limit. - Beas

The sites are wide and spacious with occasional palm trees. There is a nearby playground and picnic shelter. Watch your children carefully, it is not uncommon to see large birds or alligators wandering the campground. - Keystone Trail

Stayed here a day and night as we explored the Fort Pierce area. Can understand the high ratings for this park. as one would be hard pressed to find a single complaint. Perfect paved level sites with full hookups and cable, immaculate restrooms, pool, and laundry areas. Park perfectly manicured, gated, and friendly service with great access to I-95 and downtown Fort Pierce. Seems set up for longer terms stays but met all our needs and then some...albeit a little pricey for August in Florida but you get what you pay for in this case. Highly recommend but not really for those looking for a more authentic camping experience. - Gators60

The nightly rate we paid reflects a weekly rate. This is an absolutely beautiful park with level, spacious concrete sites with grassy areas and picnic tables The access roads are asphalt. The hookups are very good with the exception that the sewer connections are not screw-in. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This park has a lot of rules, so if you don't like rules you might not feel comfortable. However, the rules are what keeps this park a top-of-the-line destination. The only negatives, that keep it from being a perfect RV park, are the facts that the WiFi was sporadic (decent to terrible, depending on the day and time) and that there was no recycling available on site. You can cart your recyclables to the St. Lucie County solid waste facility (about 10 minutes away), but a park this nice should provide recycling on site. - Byron Bailey

Paved wide roads and concrete pads. Extremely well kept. Escorted to site and although we didn't have a sewer hose riser (recommended), they came and put one in place when we had gone out to dinner. Grounds are very well kept and the pool (didn't use) looked very nice. Scenic lake in center of CG. Lot spacing was spacious with a sunny/open exposure. The site also featured a picnic table. - Rd yacht

There aren't very many choices in this area of the Florida coast, but I'll try to find something better next time. This KOA is right on a busy highway and is a bit tricky to get in and out. The road noise and a train track across the highway affords little peace and quiet. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. The bath/shower rooms (only two, however) are wonderful. The WiFi was difficult, with a weak signal, so had lots of trouble getting online. The cable, however, was fine and pretty good selection of channels. The biggest negatives for us is that it is almost all gravel with very little "green". The closeness of sites is an issue. There were even rigs parked in the middle of the gravel parking lot. And, the road noise. They are close to the beaches and restaurants, museums, etc, so that's a big plus. - stocky

People were very nice and we were given instructions for pulling in through back gate as we had a large motorhome with tow. Still very difficult to enter the park, although pull-through site was nearby. Lots of traffic lights when getting off turnpike to get here. Too difficult with a big rig. - Energizer

The park has nice landscaping outside the fence: palm trees and shrubs. Inside the park is mostly gravel and it isn't all that pretty. There has been an attempt to "green up" the park, but it has a long way to go. Pluses are that it was very easy to level and access our site. Hookups were good and even the WiFi was good. (That is rare!) Everything was clean and neat. The park is small and there are few amenities. There is some street noise and some train noise. Location is both a blessing and a curse, as you can actually walk to Wendy's and the Publix Market, also to a large water channel where we saw dolphin. The general location is near the Fort Pierce Marina, which is being beautifully redeveloped. Staff seemed good: pleasant, and caring about the experience. From the highway it is hard to find the park. Look for the tall KOA flags and for the Wendy's sign in the sky. - Maxine and Cinder

This park is conveniently located near Fort Pierce. We stayed here for one month. It is primarily occupied by permanent residents, but there are transient sites available. $150.00 per week. While there are no amenities, each site has its own sewer hookup. The permanent residents are friendly and helpful. We camped in a travel trailer and would definitely stay here again. - sailor323

The park is in a more urban setting but access into the park from the highway was easy. We drive a 45F MH and navigated into and around the park easily. The roads are paved and sites are concrete. We did have a bit of trouble backing into our assigned site - took a couple of passes, but getting out in the morning was easy. The utilities were well placed, water pressure and power were good. We did not use the amenities so I cannot comment on them. I did not feel the park was a good value given the price for one night. We had an old, unpainted picnic table on our site with no landscaping. The back-in sites are a bit tight together and it felt crowded. If we were going to come back and stay longer in a different site, I expect it is a lovely place. We would not return however, for just an overnight. - LvR

Fair notice - we own a lot here. That said, we thought our views would be useful for potential renters. The Resort is clean and well maintained. The lots, back-in or head-in, are easy to get into. Many have outdoor amenities and some have only a picnic table. The premium lots with waterfront locations are beautiful and the others are fine.
It can be a bit confusing because the rental program is not run by the HOA. A previous review commented on no call back about a party. The parties are run by the HOA and communication could be better. This is not a big issue and shouldn't be a reason to avoid the resort.
There are tons of things to do in the area. Our favorite is the PGA Academy which is open to the public with great practice facilities and instructors. - Saltydog44

Lovely place. Found the people very friendly and welcoming. Nice clubhouse, but needs to expand in order to be considered world-class. Would prefer spa and pool hours to extend beyond dusk. It's hard to beat the location of this resort, with virtually anything you would want or need within a 10-15 minute drive. This is the first resort we have stayed in that has us giving consideration to purchasing a lot. - USMCRET

Great people and we have a great site. Very nice area and the park is well managed. Very close to shopping and the beach. - Michael and Shirley Engle

First, I would not pay too much attention to the "3" rating unless you are hauling a bunch of toys. We have a 40' MH and a toad. We only stayed 4 nights and were placed on a large site that used to house a trailer/Park model; among the other trailers. No RV's in sight... It was fine! Neighbors were friendly and hook-ups worked. The Wi-Fi was too far away but the Verizon data and cell was great. The location is close to Vero Beach and Ft. Pierce. Shopping abounds. They do have an area just for RV's; maybe for the monthly rentals? In any case, no complaints and we would stay here again. - Kokomo

We have spent 2 years at Tanglewood but will never come back. We were told we could not have our boat or anything else on our lot. It's double standards when the president of the community can have his motorhome on his lot but no one else can have campers, trailers, car dollies, boats, or any thing extra on their lots. There are plenty of other places around the Vero Beach area that welcome campers and their toys. - kgkaroonie

Very tight spots. Basically a parking lot with a nice clubhouse and pool. We chose it for it's proximity to Walton Rocks Beach/Dog Park. No cable or air TV. Weak or no Wi-Fi. Almost entirely permanent residents. One side of the park is all Canadian campers and the other American campers. Very friendly neighbors. - juustright

This campground is not a resort compared to other places we have stayed. We have been coming here for more than 10 years and have watched the place go downhill in the past 5 years. The lots flood when we have a heavy rain because the drains are no longer being maintained and they remain muddy. The pool is cracking and in need of repairs. The road is very dark at night, a street light was supposed to be put up but that was 2 years ago. The overgrowth at the rear of some of the campers has not been trimmed in years. Our neighbors got a rat in their wall and trapped 11 rats! Only a couple of the washers in the laundry room work correctly. It seems the owners are sucking the rents and not putting anything back into their investment. The woman's restroom is clean but the men's is not. There was a woman who cleaned the rest rooms everyday several years ago but now it appears they are cleaned on weekends. - Grouper

The only thing remotely resort about this campground is "Resort" in the name. The entrance is just past a fenced retention pond and the only sure way to identify the entrance is by the building which has "Self Storage" in large letters. The pull thru sites are actually parallel parking sites at the entry street into the park itself. The sites are small and very close together. We overhung our concrete pad by quite a bit to get it out of the street! The electric (which is an extra $76.50 per week) did not work but they did repair that quickly. There were families with small children there but there was nothing for them to do in the park other than ride bikes or swim in the pool. We were there to visit friends and family but will choose a different park next time. - Wiggley

This is small park with about 50 (est.) concrete pads, and about half of them have semi-permanent mobile homes on them. Streets are are about 1.5 RV wide, and nicely topped. Everyone was fairly friendly, and it's fairly quiet even though it's just off Hwy 1 in Port St. Lucie. The concrete pads are level, and the hookups all work well (some sites have 50-amp only, so make sure you have a 'bone' converter if you use 30-amp). However, the placement of the connections varies widely from site to site... for the first time, we had to use a sewer hose extension to reach the sewer port. Each site has a very small picnic table. No fire rings or pits, no grills. Office personnel were fairly friendly and helpful, but don't seem to be there on the weekends. Though they claim to have WiFi, and they have 2 SSIDs show up, for only one night of our eight night stay was it actually usable. Verizon and Karma worked okay. No cable, and OTA TV stations were very limited. No dumpsters or big trash cans, you have to wait for a Monday or Thursday and put your trash out by the street. There seem to be occasional social events (bingo, breakfasts, etc.) but we did not participate.
The laundry room was clean, with 3 washers, 3 dryers. There weren't any other amenities that I am aware of. Generally, it's a good value and a good location with lots of shopping around, but it's short on amenities. We would stay here again if it were the only park around that was open, but we would look around first to see if something even better was available. - RobtL

Very large and very clean park. Some parts are better than others. Some areas are much easier to get in while other sections are very tight. Varies a good bit. As an example, the site we stayed on fits a 45 ft fifth wheel and we had zero issues backing it on the first shot. In other sections of the park this would be impossible even for a 35 ft. My recommendation is to check Google maps or visit before you book or get in touch with one of the many owners renting their sites. Decent rule of thumb is the deeper it is off the main road (more turns you take off the main area) the tighter things tend to get. Not always true but mostly accurate. As for the park, beautiful, well maintained, gated / guarded and had tons of amenities. Two pools, one river side and one directly on the ocean, both are very nice. Shuffle board, mini golf, tennis, basketball, volleyball, gaming stations inside, workout room, horse shoes, BBQ pits, sand box, etc. If you get bored here it's your own fault. Add to that the beach is a short walk or cart ride away depending on where you stay, and it's beautiful. If you are serious about a decent term rental I advise getting in touch with some owners personally. Plenty of $$ to be saved. We locked up a site for a year for 6k and paid our own electric while having access to all the amenities. That was 2 years ago. We since purchased in here May 2014. There are not many parks in this section of the state. Nettles is an excellent location despite its flaws (some sections are a little tight). Just choose wisely. - Aridon

This is a nice gated community if you're one of the full time residents and are able to utilize all the amenities offered. If you're a road worker with a contract up the way, it was the only campground out on the island. The views are beautiful, and overall we liked it, but they have crammed a few too many sardines into that can. The chubby girl at the office seems to quote any highball price she thinks she can con people out of. Overall Nettles is way overpriced even for what they offer. The daily rate listed is 1/30th of what she gouged us for, including the per day charge for electric, no matter how little you may really use. We gave them points for being a nicely kept gated community. We took away points for attitude and gouging in the office. Overall we believe a 6 is fair. We just recently pulled out of town, but I really doubt we would ever be back for work or pleasure. - Full Timer from PA

Sites so close you can hear you neighbor's bathroom. Mostly seasonal folks-very friendly. What we disliked the most was the reservation policy: pay up front for entire stay!!! Then pay a $200 deposit up front!! Oh but that's not all..your refund of the $200 will not be returned upon check-out--you will receive it in the MAIL. This is a total scam.. ALL THIS FOR A DRIVEWAY RENTAL. You will pay for your dog to be on the grounds! You will pay them to use your own golf cart (with your own ins). The place is clean, the beach is right across the street, but won't put up with the scam.. - Banywhere
