This is a very unique RV park located in Loxahatchee, which is very close to Palm Beach (about a 20 minutes car ride).

The campground is big and the sites are generously sized. Needless to say, given where it is and what it is, there are many families with children staying in this campground. The park is well maintained and clean. The people are friendly. As a bonus, you will be listening to the roar of lions several times a day and sometimes during the night.

This RV park is easy to find, easy to get in and out of and recommended. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

As the name implies, this RV park is immediately adjacent to and bordering on to the Lion Country Safari Park. It is a drive-through safari park which takes about 30 minutes from beginning to end. In addition to lions you will see many other exotic animals and if you were ever thinking about feeding a giraffe, you will have a chance to do that, too. $2.50 buys you a handful of salad leaves which you can handfeed to the giraffes which will come to you while you stand on the top of a platform about 15 feet above the ground.

The campground is close to Palm Beach, which is a famous town on the Florida East coast.

If you like to oogle MacMansions, this is the place to do it. Well, you can try because most of the houses have huge privacy fences consisting of 10-15 feet tall hedgerows which nearly block all views from the streetside. The small glimpses you can catch will tell you that there are lot of very rich people in this town. That is even more evident if you visit the main shopping area in Palm Beach on Worth Ave which is lined on both sides by super expensive shops. The occasional Rolls Royce, Bentleys, Mercedes, BMW as well as fancily and expensively dressed people complete the picture.

We stayed here on a 3 night package for $155 which included entrance into the Lion Safari Park for up to 4 people for 2 days. (This deal is available from April-Dec normally but they were doing a trial extension when we stayed there - WE HOPE THEY CONTINUE THE DEAL YEAR ROUND!). We also stayed an extra night for $68. The park is very clean, tidy and the access roads are excellent. We stayed in a pull through site with full hookup. The sites are spacious and tidy with a concrete pad and picnic table. The laundry facilities were clean and tidy and everything worked. The showers were exceptionally clean and tidy also. Activities are available at the park, such as shuffleboard etc. The Lion Safari Park is excellent with a drive through to see the animals which includes use of a CD to listen to a commentary about what you are seeing as you drive through. Then there is a walk through area where you can feed the giraffes and some other animals and some rides for children and a water park area for the children. Many many animals and plants for all over the world are to be seen. We look forward to returning to the park again soon. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Its not far to the shops - about 5 miles east of the park.

This was our second stay here. Most of the sites are great; large and wide. There are a few that are tight together, but we managed to avoid those. The pool is much larger than normal, and I even manage to swim lengths in it. It is very quiet at night, and you can hear the lions from the Safari Park next door. The park is very well a managed, and the staff work hard to help out with any requests. The only negative comment is that the park is very focussed on seasonal campers, so getting a specific site during the winter vacation can be hard, even when reserving well in advance.

We stayed here for four months. The place is way over priced and on the weekends anything goes. I had teens running around at 2am several weekends. If you don't request it, mowing and weed eating is not done on the site. Too many of our friends from the North border take over the campground and our generally very rude. We left two months early because of the atmosphere in the park. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground is adequate for a nice stay in the area, however I do have a few criticisms. The first is the length of the pull thrus and the tight campground configuration. The pull thru sites in the area we were in were barely long enough to contain both our motorhome and toad, and could only do so if I unhitched the toad. Numerous sites containing fifth wheels and TTs could not hold both the trailer and its tow vehicle, resulting in tow vehicles being parked in spots that were not within campground policy. Combined with the narrow interior roads, the randomly parked tow vehicles created obstacles when it came time to depart the campground. On the morning of departure, I could not exit my site without asking my immediate neighbor and their neighbor to move their trucks for me. Secondly, there were places throughout the campground that needed attention from someone with a weedeater. I noticed this mostly on campsites that appeared to have been occupied for an extended period. Lastly, I think it's very odd that the campground doesn't have cable. There's just no justification for that. As a heads up, I'd like to make note that the water pressure at our site consistently measured 80 psi, which is a bit high. That's a lot of negatives, but honestly, the campground has a lot going for it too. We had two days' admission to Lion Country Safari included in the cost of the site. We took advantage of that and had an enjoyable time in the park. For a KOA, I think this campground is a decent value. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Motorhome.

Perfect place to stop off on the way to Key West. We arrived right at sun set and were led to the site by an employee. In the morning we did hear the lions. Very interesting to hear them roar. I would stay here again. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Motorhome.

Beautiful campground; shaded and well kept. The best part was that the price included tickets for two days admission to Lion Country Safari. This is a MUST GO destination for everybody. This turned out to be one of our best trips and will be returning again real soon. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed for two nights and loved this place. Big site for our 40' rig and plenty of space to spread out. Can't believe the price includes the safari next door. We really enjoyed that and waking up to roaring lions was really cool. Pool was large and dog park was good too. Certainly will come again. Everyone was very nice and pleasant.

We overnighted here on our way to Key West. A bit off the beaten path if traveling the FL Tpk or I-95, but not too far. You can hear the lions in the park which is immediately adjacent to this campground. The pull thru we had was large enough to handle our 40' MH and toad. Nothing wrong with the campground, but we will choose somewhere else to overnight in the future due to the cost. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Motorhome.

Ditto the previous reviewer. This was the only place we could find on the way to the Keys. They are the highest priced CG that we have ever stayed in our 4 years of RV'ing. Of course we should have figured as much for KOA. With that price they don't have cable TV. I will not stay here again. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Motorhome.

The park was was easy to find with well placed signs showing the turns. Check in was quick and easy. The staff showed us to our sight. The lion safari next door was great. We used the passes obtained from the campground which were included with the stay to go two days in a row. Loved hearing the lions in the morning and night. The bathrooms were clean as well as the separate showers. The only things that we found odd was the pool closes at dusk (not much else to do) and there is no cable TV, although our regular antenna picked up a few digital stations. Overall a nice place to stay to see the safari next door. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice and wooded campground. Very clean and kept up nice. Nice staff. Dog walk park, playground area, cabins you can rent and separate tent area. You hear the Lion Country Safari animals next door. Some permanent park models. It isn't that close to shopping or restaurants though. Kind of far from everything, although that does make it a little more quieter. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the most beautiful KOA's we have enjoyed. Upon arrival, after making on-the-road reservations, we were welcomed, placed in an area near the pet walk, and everyone was very friendly. The laundry room was very clean, operational, and convenient, the pool was pristine, and the overall grounds well maintained and clean. Oh, and yes, you can hear the lions in the AM & PM, which made one of our dogs very nervous, but nonetheless, you feel safe. The free admission into the Safari Park was a delightful surprise, and it is beautiful and well maintained, as well. I would definitely stay here again should we be in the area. This is a diamond of a KOA, upholding its reputation to a T. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was the nicest KOA we've ever stayed at. It's pet friendly, but they don't tolerate barking. They have a lovely fenced in dog park. Lion Country is right next door and it is an excellent attraction. The lions roaring had us, and the dogs spooked for the first couple of nights, but we got used to it. They've got loads of different species and hundreds of animals there. A must do. We camped at West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA in a Motorhome.
