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. We camped at Pahokee Marina & Campground (formerly Pahokee Marina / Lake Okeechobee in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Pahokee Marina & Campground (formerly Pahokee Marina / Lake Okeechobee in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Pahokee Marina & Campground (formerly Pahokee Marina / Lake Okeechobee in a Campground Cabin.

Big, grassy sites were a plus. Ant infestations were a minus. All lots were lake front. We stayed in lot 111, a long walk to the nearest bath house. New Years eve party was okay. The new bar/restaurant just opened. Pahokee is a scary town: don't leave the park after dark. Not much to do: the pool was closed and we didn't have a boat. However, campfires were allowed and the whole experience there was relaxing. We would stay here again. We camped at Pahokee Marina & Campground (formerly Pahokee Marina / Lake Okeechobee in a Travel Trailer.

This KOA has back-in grassy sites only. I was in site 75 for 2 nights and connected to Dish Network, AT&T Cell and AT&T Broadband with no problems. 50 Amp service was good. Wi-Fi and Cable was not available at my site. Lots of empty sites and quiet but very windy. Town is very small with little to do. No grocery stores other than Quick Mart type. Nice Marina with bar. Easy to maneuver around. We camped at Pahokee Marina & Campground (formerly Pahokee Marina / Lake Okeechobee in a Motorhome.

All sites are on Lake Okeechobee but when there is a west wind, it can be breezy. No cable or wi-fi but plenty of stations can be brought in by antenna. There is an additional cost of $2.50/day for electricity not mentioned. Signs to park are almost non-existent. Go to marina at downtown stoplights. Good place to fish but area has not much else to do. Very poor town. We camped at Pahokee Marina & Campground (formerly Pahokee Marina / Lake Okeechobee in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice grassy sites - just be sure to bring the ant spray! The "new" restaurant is nice, but the service leaves something to be desired. We went to a New Years eve party there - the drink prices changed every drink and the waitress "forgot" to bring back my change. If reserving a site past the cabins, bring a bike as the bath house and pool is a mile away. Don't let the run down campers near the office scare you - these are the permanent residents and they pretty much leave you alone. Bring everything you'll want as the town is run down and you need to travel 10 miles to the next nearest town. Overall a nice place - every site is waterfront and there is a large marina. Each site has it's own firering, so bring wood or you'll pay $10 for a small bag in the office.

Stayed here for the first time and thought it was wonderful. Watching the sun set across the lake was breathtaking. Grounds were kept immaculate and new restaurant onsite is said to open soon. Will definitely come back! We camped at Pahokee Marina & Campground (formerly Pahokee Marina / Lake Okeechobee in a Motorhome.

We had a grassy site Lakefront. Beautiful marina, nice pool but nothing else to do there. We booked 3 nights but first night wind was so strong we thought there was a hurricane. Our 30' motorhome rocked all night. We left next day when other campers told us it is always that windy. Surprised this was a KOA.

This site is currently joining the KOA network (and is being called Lake Okeechobee Outpost) but it's going to need a lot of staff training and some organizing! We were met with a sign which said "all vehicles must register at office before proceeding". However, there is no specific parking/waiting area and the staff cars were parked outside the office along with a large public transport coach. We were attended to in the office by a young lady who certainly doesn't understand customer service. Least said the better! The Wi-Fi that they advertise is only available in the office/reception area and during our stay, that closed at 4.30pm. The sites are lakefront and easy to access. The Tiki bar is unfinished and is not operational. Pahokee has no facilities and we wouldn't visit again even if there was no where else to go!
