This is the only campground on the lake other than Bella Glade where the grass is too high to see the lake. All of the others are on the backside of the dike. The main attraction here is sunset scoring, gator and manatee counting. This was our 2nd visit here, 2 months in 2016, 3 months in 2017 and we have made reservations for 2018. All sites are lakefront with plenty of manuvering room except 21 and 22 that are across from dump station which I have never seen anyone use. This is a quiet campground for snowbirds, retires, fishermen and locals who come for the weekends. There is no playground on site for kids. There is a small one in town next to the library. The pool is not heated but stayed in the mid 70's all winter. The campground is run by the city and it's their public works department that does an excellent job keeping it clean and mowed. There are some reviews that call the town scary, it is poor but I walk to the post office a few times a week, barber shop, Save-a-Lot and the dollar stores and never worried. I wouldn't walk into town at night but the locals you meet there, the fishing breakwater and picnic area are friendly. The towns problems don't spill over into the campground maybe because this is where a lot of Palm Beach County police take their breaks and patrols come thru 4-6 times a day. The police boat is kept here also. Shopping is limited in town but I run into West Palm to dive a few times a week and hit Publix and BJ's while there. The only down side this year is the Tiki Bar was closed but a new owner is coming. There is a propane truck that comes thru usually on Tuesday and Thursday. Daily rate is $35, I think tent sites are $25 but you are better off renting by the month. $240 plus tax, bed fee, water and metered electric will be about $350 The office is closed Sunday, Tuesday and Holidays. There is supposably free Wi-Fi but usually you can only get it at the office, the repeaters on the bathrooms don't seem to be working. - LatitudeAdjustment

This park was in a beautiful spot with RV looking out on Lake Okeechobee but is a place I will never return to. Hats off to the young lady who was looking after the park as she was above & beyond in kindness and understanding! The area itself is very frightening and seems to be struggling with incredible poverty and high crime rates. Not a safe feeling when you go through the town or away from your RV. Booked for 1 month, stayed 5 nights. - Carol-Ann

Stayed here for our second time and loved it. No wind whatsoever and we happened to be there for their grand opening of Big Bertha's tiki bar. They had a live band and specials all day. Laid out by the pool and relaxed for most of the day. Overall a good experience, at night it was very calming and relaxing and you can't beat the sunset! - Debbie23

This is one of the nicest county owned parks that we have stayed in while traveling all over the US, Canada, and much of Mexico. Stayed here overnight on our way from Key West to Kissimmee. It is such a nice 24 hour gated park we wished we were staying two nights just to relax for a day, but had already made reservations in Kissimmee. Based on previous reviews we asked for a 30 amp site and we were given one on Shellcracker Circle that backed right up to the lake and was near the end of the circle. About 7 in the evening we saw a fairly large alligator swimming along the lake shore right behind us. We slept with the bedroom windows open and heard a little traffic noise but it was not disturbing. The 50 amp sites are wider than the 30's with room to park a tow vehicle next to the RV on the pad. All utilities worked well and very good wifi. Picnic table is on a concrete pad. OTA tv brought in 30 some stations. ATT was only good for 1-2 bars LTE. The only negative about this site was a tree at the end of the pad which kept us from backing up farther than we wanted to. As a result this level site just fit our 33' motorhome and tow car. Many, many of the sites do not have any obstruction in the back. Staff at checkin was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. - cjca

DO NOT accept reservations for sites 73-89, especially the even numbered. You are only 30 feet from the highway, 24 hours a day of big trucks, right where the speed limit goes from 45-65. You will NOT sleep. Otherwise, this is absolutely the best campground, value I have EVER experienced. So come, but get a good site. - Jack Page

The biggest problems with this park are the noise from the highway, and the distance to travel to do anything. Oh and did I mention the truck noise? Our rig vibrates every time one of the 100 rigs per hour goes by, 24 hours a day! Also consider the remoteness of this park. It is an hour drive to almost anything. So if you are deaf and like to drive and you like to sit and relax it is a great place to stay. - JAD52

Short 5 minutes drive from clewiston. Friendly staff, clean, majority park models, but a number of tow behind too. Super clean bath house/ pool. Grounds are very well kept. Awesome people, excellent tiki hut! - Good citizen

This was a one night stopover in our 38' pusher coach towing a vehicle. Got a pull thru at the very back of the park by their storage lot. The roads in this older park are VERY narrow. I was barely able to swing our rig around in the grass field to line up with a site, which was also grass and on a little hill. If it had been wet or raining I would have been stuck for sure. I did get the coach leveled, thankfully. The electric was very erratic so we couldn't use the m'wave. Glad we didn't need the a/c. The park was quiet and the WiFi was excellent at our site. Would not stay here again. - Cap'n Easy

Old Florida charm! This park is immaculately clean and well kept. It is older with many older park models but the lots are well taken care of with many having interlocking pavers. There is always ground maintenance trimming the trees and hedges and changing the garbage cans. There are lots of activities and the people are very friendly. The owner also seems to do a lot for the residents. Free dinners, prizes for activities all come out of his pocket. This is the complete opposite of the last park I stayed at. The showers are spotless, there is a huge library and the clubhouse is older but decent. I will definitely be back. - love to travel64

Nights Stayed – 3 Park Overall – The Park is a typical South FL RV Park, with very small sites. There is a lake in the park with many sites on the lake. There are no trees to speak of in the park. The park has well maintained paved roads. All sites are grass; most have cement patios. Overall the park is in need of upgrades which is taking place. The park residents were mainly there for the winter season. RV Type Used - 5th Wheel 28 Ft, one slide. My Site (143) – The site is small, narrow and long, with ample space to back in with little difficult. The site is level and on the lake. Bath house is nearby. What We Did – Bass Fishing – Restroom –Very clean, hand soap and hand drier provided. Bath – Very clean, but heat was not required in Nov. Cell Service - Verizon worked, 3+ bars - 3G at lease Internet Access – NA – We connected via Verizon Hotspot on our phone. Satellite TV – Reception no problem on any site. Basic Shopping – There is Wal-Mart, 6 miles from the park. Dining – Tiki Grill on the canal has great food, a wonderful water front view and the food and atmosphere is the best. Most Bass Tournaments weigh in at the Tiki Marina which is open to the public. Would I Return – Yes, best in the area from what I saw. - johnrobertpowers

We spent 3 months here last winter. We are not going back this year. The campground itself was very nice. The people who worked there also very nice. The best thing about this place is that it's located on the very edge of town with a paved sidewalk into town. It takes about 15 minutes to bike to the grocery store and hardware. The town is a good location for visiting both the Ft. Myers area on the Gulf of Mexico and Miami on the Atlantic. The town has a small movie theater that was very nice. The town has no movie rental store. The very worst thing about this park is the near by sugar plant. The smell is truly awful. We would leave town when there was a Southwest wind. That is why we will not return. Another thing about this park is that 90% of the campers are from French Canada, so most of the activities are in French. Everyone was super nice to us but we still felt a little left out. - mouldsfn

The park was ok. We just spent one night passing thru. The woman I talked with on the phone was very nice. The woman that checked us in at the guard shack was the nastiest person I have ever dealt with at a campground. Incredible! Won't stop there again. Too bad, overall the park is ok. - karonb

The Clewiston / Lake Okechobee RV park is small and lacks amenities. I have since stayed at another wonderful park nearby. The park borders a cow field and is near loud train tracks and the highway. I found the website allures the park to be something it is not. The park claims to have free WiFi which in the first part of my stay did not work at all. After I was told it was repaired, I still wasn't able to even check my email let alone stream a movie. The spots are unpaved and maintained horribly. The restrooms showers are filthy. Aside from the close proximity to the town I was disappointed in my stay at the park. It is well worth the short drive to stay in the many other wonderful parks nearby. - ExperiencedCamper1

We stayed in this park for 5 months and loved every minute of it. It is in a rural setting and the spaces are generous and grassy with lots of trees. They have propane on site which is so handy. There are plenty of activities if you are interested in that kind of thing. It is only a few miles to town which makes it very convenient. We will be sure to stay there if we're ever in South Florida again. - WOMING RAMBLERS

This campground is a few miles outside of Clewiston. It is surrounded by pastures with plenty of cows and the campground is quiet and peaceful. The staff was friendly and very helpful. My site was near the edge of the campground and the Wi-Fi reception was not very good from my site. It was much better closer to the office. Laundry facilities were clean. Nice relaxing place to stay. - User3319

We stayed here for one night. It is a very nice KOA out in the country west of greater Palm Beach. Check in was efficient, friendly and professionally handled. Getting into my pull through site was a little tight and tricky, but I had the usual KOA golf cart guide to help. I actually got more detailed step by step direction than I am used to. We were here on a weekend night and a lot of the visitors seemed to be there enjoying the recreational facilities which appeared to be quite nice and well maintained. The park in general is in good shape. You could actually hear the lions sounding off in the Lion Country Safari right beyond the park fence. The host at check in advised us that it would be a possibility. I would stay here again. - one_strange_texan

Great campground! Worked out every morning listening to the lions roar!! The office was super friendly & got us a better rate than we booked because they had a 3 night discount. Spaces were well maintained and not too close ( compared to other KOA's) After hours gate was a comfort. Great location - could get to everything! Lovely pool & great laundry facilities. Hope to go back soon! - kettlebelle

It's always fun to camp here and listen to the lions and monkeys next door. Easy drive into this KOA. Sites are grass and sand (it's Florida!) with a concrete pad. Some sites are large and some are fairly close together, many have trees. The pool is always a "delightful" temperature, office staff is very friendly and helpful, and there is a large dog park. The new Publix and other strip stores are just a couple of quick miles away. - Youandmebabe

If coming from the north be very aware of their sign. I missed it and drove 5 miles before a turn around. Very well kept location. Office staff very nice and helpful. Passport only accepted for 3 days or would have stayed longer.
$66.00 a night in Okeechobee in the summer is really over the top. Large site with pavers and fishing in the rim ditch. WPB on the antenna and clear for a satellite. Large open area for the dog. Mostly quite even with the highway so close. An enjoyable location. - Libby

We were at this very quaint campground for several days. We understood that a bank has taken over this campground and is not putting any money into it so it could change relatively quickly. It was not in bad shape while we were there. The river at the back of the campground has a beautiful tiki hut large enough for the whole campground.
We really didn't see the staff other than check in even though she lives on site.
There is no cable here and the local channels hardly work at all so you will need satellite. We had ATT service which didn't work except in some very specific spots in the campground.
The WiFi also was spotty.
Not much in the area unless you fish.
Probably wouldn't stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

Because this is our 1st year snow birding, our early and prior reserving where we originally wanted to be was unsuccessful. So for the month of February, we started calling around the state desperately seeking a place to stay so we wouldn't have to go back to the awful cold and snow.
We happened on this rv park via the 2016 RV Travel & Savings Guide. I called and was greeted by a very friendly manager that was accommodating. The park is security gated and we were given a remote to get back in when we left the community. The park itself is small but beautiful. Our site was quite roomy with beautiful pavers and palm trees and shrubs between us and our neighbors. Pets are welcome and need to be on leashes. The sounds of traffic on the highway right next to the park are loud but only certain times of the day. Every day there was a social hour right before sunset in the large and beautiful Chickee hut...everyone was welcome. While we were there we celebrated Super Bowl Sunday in the Clubhouse/office with the others at the park. We also had a campfire wiener roast that everyone attended. They were both enjoyable with food pitch-ins by the residents and the managers provided the meats. Our rent did not include electricity but the average daily rate even with the additional electric was only $27.50. The water was a light rusty color but didn't seem to have an odor. We drank and used bottled water. There is no laundry facility and the closest and best one was about 6 miles away. Grocery stores are 10-12 miles away. The pool is clean and beautiful but not heated. However, we did sun ourselves there. The clubhouse is roomy and very nicely decorated. We were given a pass code to get in to use it if we wanted. We had no service with our telephones 99% of the time with AT&T and Wifi was sparse. The overall experience was enjoyable. If you love fishing this is the park to be in. It sits on the canal surrounding Lake Okeechobee and has a boat launch for the residents. - Lovingretirement16
