This is a huge park with many permanent residents, a golf course, rental equipment such as bikes and golf carts. It is pretty old park and has not been updated or highly maintained. Our oncrete pad was broken up and not quite level. Ok for a 5th wheel, but tough on class A motor homes. Some coaches have to back up onto the grass to get level. Not all sites have 50 amp and it is very hot in south Florida. Electric service is low voltage and trips the pedestal circuit breaker sometimes. Be careful, if you go off and leave your pet inside the coach. Most sites point north and south so try to get one that points north so your patio will be in the shade in the afternoon. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

As others have noted, this park is large and in need of renovation. They are doing some work on it. Parking is tight, sites are close but not as bad as most KOAs. Electricity is the biggest problem. The park was close to full capacity while we were there and the power fluctuated often. Our emergency gen-start kicked on repeatedly on one hot day, and we had several "brown outs." Getting 50-amp service depends on getting to your utility post first, as there is one 50 and one 30 per post. The staff are great, they work to keep the place clean, but I think they have trouble keeping up with such a large park. My dog kept finding chicken bones everywhere. There is an unfenced grassy run for dogs at the front of the park and the usual small K-9 area with agility equipment. We were parked mid way back, so it wasn't a problem to walk there, but people further back would have a long walk to get there. Out site was great, we had two shade trees which made it very pleasant. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Motorhome.

Always enjoy a stop here. In town and close to everything. But far enough out to not be congested. Easy in and out off the highway. The site had been repaved, but the power stand appeared not new. Power worked fine but only 1 50amp and 1 30 amp. Cool weather and power stable at 115volts. Large library. Wifi is useless so went across the street to Mcdonalds and got it done--very fast. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Major office remodel going on, but office staff is handling it very well. Check in was pleasant. It wasn't really "Season" yet but there were a lot of sites filled. The roads are a little narrow in places, but it wasn't a problem. Too cool for the pool but it looked clean. Traded a few books at the large library. Handy to be right in town and close to restaurants/shopping. The flea markets are fun on the weekend. Inflation has found Okeechobee, although the Shanty was still reasonable . We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Great park to stay, staff is super friendly, lots of activities. Pools are very clean, food is good and inexpensive, animal friendly. Spent most of the summer weekends at the park, enjoyed it! Only down side is the maintenance of the park, needs lots of upgrades, and floods easily. We camped at Okeechobee KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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.
