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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Big park, crowded sites, many sites flooded after rains. Wi-Fi was spotty. Mostly had to drive for shopping and food. Many activities in the campground. 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.

Met some friends here for a week stay. Large park with it's own golf course. A nice, clean place to stay. Lots of Canadians while we were there but all seemed friendly. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

Really a nice KOA. Very clean and roomy restrooms. Lots of activities. An adult pool. Nice gym, but they do charge. They even have a cocktail bar. Not a lot to do in the area. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff was very rude and not friendly toward children. I requested a pull through campsite near the camp store because my children love to shop. The female staff employee in the store was very rude to my children even in my presence, as if they were a bother to her. The park grounds appeared to be well cared for. There were no activities for the children and a lot of signs which restricted them from having a good time. We left the park a day early. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Facilities are getting a little run down looking. You can tell this is a corporate owned location. Does not have that pride of ownership feel that many family owned parks do. Have camped here several times because of closeness to my home. It is nice weekend trip. Every time I felt like it took forever to be waited on upon check in. Does not set the tone for the weekend well. Camp frequently and understand sometimes parks get busy but to never have enough staff for check in. To me first impression is a lasting impression. Adult pool area is very nice but pool needed to be skimmed. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
