This is a huge park, largest KOA in the States. We were in a spot that was adjacent to the 9 hole golf course. They had a Mardi Gras parade while we were there. Lot of facilities and programs were available if desired. Amenities were good. Our grass site had some shade with very close spacing. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

PROS-This is a good size campground, 750 sites. They have lots of activities for all ages. They have two swimming pools, sundeck, hot tub and bar. One pool is for families the other for adults. If you're into golf they have a 9 hole golf course, driving range, putting green and mini golf, plus lot's of other things to keep you active and busy. Inexpensive food and drinks available in the park, great staff, friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. You're about a mile from Lake Okeechobee with some great fishing. They guided us to our site, and with lots of help from the staff we were able to get our 5th wheel into the site. They pick up the garbage at your site daily.

CONS- For an older park it is well taken care of, but not the sites themselves, they need some work, as does the campground roads and are a bit confusing until you get use to them. Because it's older it's a bit tight to back into with a large 5th wheel, narrow roads truck and cars lining the streets. Water pressure was 42psi and the electric post had one 50 amp and one 30 amp located at the back of the site rusted and in need of some work, we could only get the 30 amp, the 50 amp was already taken by a permanent resident. We needed to get out extra cable, sewer and water hose to reach it. Wi-Fi is limited and you can pay extra for additional service, and the service was slow and sometimes not available. The cement patio was in need of repair; it's getting old. Like many KOA's we've stayed at we find them to be overpriced, older and in need of updating, especially at the campsites.

WOULD WE STAY HERE AGAIN? No Our rate was based on staying for a month.

We stayed here in a 36 foot fifth wheel. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We really love this park except for a few things that could be improved upon. This is our second stay here and we have already booked for next winter. This park has very friendly staff and every amenity you can think of. The convention center is very large and holds bingo twice a week. The 9-hole golf course could use a sprinkler system and some additional tlc but it's a great little course and perfect for beginners like me. We love the separate pools; one for adults and one for families. They have shuffleboard, bocce, ping pong, pool, darts, tennis, pickle ball, pétanque and our favorite, water volleyball. There are card clubs, craft clubs, mah-Jong, exercise classes, dancing, RC sailing, you name it. You cannot get bored here. And fishing is only minutes away. Half an hour to the casino and an hour to the outlet mall. There are restaurants close by and the onsite lunch box has great food at a reasonable price. There's a nice dog park and run area with cleanup bags throughout the park. Golf is very reasonable and they have carts available to rent. We only have a few comments on improvements. The roads in the RV section really, need attention. They are crumbling in places. The entire area floods with any real rain and the low numbered sites back up to an RV repair shop that is a bit unsightly and often noisy. And lastly the sites in this area are very tight; difficult to even get into with no broad apron on the street so you're turning in the mud and not deep or wide enough. Our truck stuck out into the road a bit, like many others and our awning practically touched our neighbor's slide, while our rear window had a closeup view of the repair shop's fence. You'd think they'd do a section at a time addressing all these issues; planting trees along the fence, raising the grade, paving the roads and widening the apron, during the quiet season. Otherwise we love it here and already booked next year in a more spacious site overlooking the brook and the golf course. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park, it is much more expensive than the other parks in the area but worth it. Tons of activities and things to do, great for pets and families. The staff is very nice. This park is huge and has around 700 sites so if you don't like people....maybe not the place for you. Have had no problems with electricity or water. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We got there late about 10 P.M. They checked us in and we had to find our site by ourselves. The campground is very big and the roads are confusing at night especially with a 45' RV. Only one person appeared to be working, and he was checking in multiple people at that time due to an accident which closed the road en route to the campground.

During the daytime they had plenty of people. they should have had more people checking in the campers.

The pool area was nice and the entertainment was enjoyable. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

65.00 reflects a discount for staying 9 nights...7 and get two free! 8 rated because of the very narrow roadways. The park is very well maintained and beautiful. If you like to bike ride or walk this is the place to stay...excellent bike path one mile away on the Okeechobee Lake Rim. We would stay here again. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for two months. Great resort with lots of things to do. KOA Staff and snowbirds are very friendly. Would have given a 10 rating except that many of the sites have shared services. We only had 30-amp service during our stay because the KOA WorkKamper behind us was using the 50-amp service. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

Very well maintained park, great employees, but still an overpriced KOA. They charge extra for wi-fi and TV and that's after paying $60+ / night. Also the electric service on the sites that share a pedestal have only 1 50 amp and 1 30 amp service available, so if the site behind you is using the 50 amp, you only get the remaining 30 amp. Also there is only 1 sewer on these sites so a long hose (20') is needed. It's an older park but very well maintained. Could definitely use a makeover, especially the old bathrooms and buildings. It stays pretty full in the winter and is mostly empty in the summer. Very dog friendly. Most sites are fairly level, but a lot of them require a lot of leveling. Reasonable food and drinks available in the park. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

Wow. We had a ball. Activities abound for all ages all day and evening. There was abundant staff everywhere and genuinely friendly. This place is more resort than campground, but the campsites (especially those that back up to the 9-hole golf course with beautiful bird watching) are as relaxing as they come. The kids pool was fun; the adult pool relaxing and quiet. The kids had a "dance" on Saturday night, complete with pizza. The adult bar, with live DJ (and sometimes live music) was like an old neighborhood bar full of "full-timers" that didn't make us "visitors" feel unwelcome at all. So many little details are managed that make the overall experience very nice. Things like plenty of well manicured healthy grass throughout and trash that would seemingly disappear any time of day you set it out make you realize someone with a hospitality background must be working behind the scenes. Golf carts are available to rent for exploring the campground; golf (and putt-putt) to play; large grassy sites with concrete pads; big shade trees; wildlife (lots of sandhill cranes), two swimming pools; kids playground; dog playground; nightlife with a bar on site. There just isn't anything missing here. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

Big place, friendly staff, older sites, hard to get the MH in just the right spot to level. Fire ants everywhere, but they were working on them. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice place, friendly folks, easy in/out, pull through sites. We use this campground often as it's a convent stop over for us. Wi-Fi works well, no problems at all, nice peaceful layover during our travels. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed for 3 days and two nights. Fantastic time with our 4 kids. Showers clean. Staff very friendly. Reported a picnic table needing repair within 30 minutes a repairman came. Lots to do! Too much for just the short stay. No bugs! Fire-ants: well yes. I'd recommend this campground. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Travel Trailer.

After rushing out of another RV "Resort", we travelled a short distance around the corner to the KOA. This is one of the best KOA resorts that we have ever stayed at. The adult pool was huge, the tiki bar was reasonable, and the grounds were kept impeccably clean. Although the WI-FI was not predictable, we would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

This camp is very clean as with almost all KOA's. What I was not ready to see were how many snow birds call it home. We had two motor homes with 2 children (6 and 8 years). You would have thought we had the plague. The full-timers did not like us here and did not make us feel welcome. When we first got here, we walked around the park. We walked through the adult only pool area to see the restaurant and were told by two people that the children are not allowed here. WE WERE WALKING THROUGH. The kids were yelled at twice that they were not allowed to ride their scooters to the playground. There were others, but you get the idea. Through-out the weekend we were not made welcome. If you are older, this is a great resort, but young with kids, stay clear. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

This was our first visit to the Okeechobee KOA. This is a very large place, with an RV side and a Full time side. We enjoyed the golf course, swimming pool (nice and heated) and playground area. We saw lots of seniors, which we thought were going to clash with the kids in our group. it was just the opposite. We found other campers and residents very helpful and friendly. The restroom was right next to our site and it was clean and it great shape. Our favorite was "The Shanty" bar. loved to visit there and the prices were great for the drinks. We loved this campground and would love to visit it again. Just not crazy about the price, maybe in the off season. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Travel Trailer.
