This is our second stay here. It's a very large park and there is a wide variety of pitch types. There are a lot of (semi)-permanent sites here and they are fairly strict about visitors: often someone watching the entrance.

This time we were in a back-in by the water's edge. It was extremely difficult to get in. One challenge is that there is a permanent resident directly opposite who has a lot of plastic fences and other paraphernalia on his verge to defend his turf. This makes it very hard to back in.

It's expensive but there are good facilities (decent pool, hot tub, volleyball and pétanque area). Dog run is extremely small though. Staff are friendly. It is ideal for the beaches and there are plenty of stores near by.

We've had two poor pitches here and if there was more choice we'd not come back but there isn't. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for a week at this park while visiting family. There are few choices of rv parks in this area and this one is in a good location for getting to the beaches and other attractions. The park is older and a lot of the sites have side by side hook ups. Sites are close together with no ground vegetation between for privacy. The restrooms are dated but kept clean. The pool and hot tub area are very nice. The office staff was friendly and very helpful when we asked to change sites. The store is well stocked with basic foods and other needs. Our $65 rate is the average for seven nights with KOA member discount. We will camp here again. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Unfortunately the older lady who served us on arrival had absolutely no customer service skills - she did her job but did not make us welcome or show any sign of friendliness. If there had been another choice nearby we would have gone there. Drive through industrial area is also a little off putting. Site was fine, with concrete slab and full hook up. Pool was great. Rubbish collected from site. Lawns were cut but clippings were not picked up which was a shame. Lots of wildlife. Views of the lake were nice. The park had few customers when we visited.

A real dump

Grass as high as knees, dont know what a weedeater is as nothing done.

Tried to charge 20.00 fee for early arrival for an hour or so, but manager did come to desk and say it wasn't necessary. Advertise water views, which there aren't so over grown. Weeds about 4 feet tall around water area. Trees very overgrown. Web pictures heavens knows where they got them from. Run down rvs all around. Dog walk area dog would get lost in.concentrating on cabins and park models. A lot of full time residents with unkept places. Don't bother to go. Just like all the other koa parks we have visited. All pretty bad. Wifi was terrible, hardly any service. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

Despite paying for a 'premium' site, they put us in a very narrow pull-through that couldn't accommodate our 36 ft rig. The front desk moved us to a better site. Sites are extremely uneven and it's pretty crowded. Pool is excellent. Wi-Fi typically poor but enough to grab emails and is free. Unappealing drive past car repair shops but the view once in the campground is better. Not terrible is the best I can say. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

After driving through an industrial area we were concerned about the campground but once you pull in its quite relaxing.

Sites are tight and you get an escort to your site who will also assist with parking if needed. Friendly staff and accommodating to our large group.

Our group utilized the RV sites as well as the cabins and we were all satisfied.

We enjoyed their pool and rented the kayaks for the afternoon.

Would return again. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This park is run down and over priced. It was like staying in a mobile home park. The WiFi did not work at all. Our site was dirt between two roads. The staff was helpful and led us to our site. The rest rooms are deteriorated. We would not stay here again. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Seems to be going downhill since our last visit , could be fantastic , it's on the water , main bike routes at the entrance , but a combination of long term residents with off lead dogs , clutter / mess and a lack of maintenance (worst interior roads I have encountered ) give this place a down beat vibe. It appears the owner is pushing money and resources into the cabins and allowing the rv sites to fall into disrepair . Will not return We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

Clean and well-maintained. Pleasant entrance. Staff most helpful. Led to site. Roads paved, site a combination of paved and dirt. Like many KOA's, they really pack them in. Very close to your neighbors. Good water pressure and voltage. Next to a "rail to trail" path. Most convenient to walk, but be careful of cyclists, many who travel at a high speed. Pool and playground area very complete for kids. Would stay here again. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

We considered this KOA when staying in Florida for a month. However, this is not a great location nor a resort atmosphere. The roads into the park take you through an industrial area that is not visually appealing. The entrance to the park is nice but then many of the camp sites back up to the back lots of the industrial park. The sites are very close together. There are several cabins towards the back. On the positive side, there are several spots along the river/bay side. A few did have cement pads and patios. We wouldn't stay here.

Nice park. We had a nice site on the water. Very clean. Lots of trees. Interior roads were adequate. They escort you to your site and help you park. Picnic table and fire pit at site. Bicycle rentals and kayak rentals. Nice city bike path to beach. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

We love this park! We initially stayed here because it was close to where our grandchildren are. But we came back a few months later without the grandchildren, because we loved it! My husband and I had a wonderful time playing miniature golf, bocce, bicycle riding, and going to the pool and hot tub. The view is beautiful and the sites easy to get in and out. We plan next time to rent a canoe and go out and fish. The employees there are all so accommodating. There were some leaves in the bocce court and an employee saw that. He immediately grabbed his leaf blower and cleaned it up for us. We were very appreciative. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is the nicest KOA we have stayed in. There are lots of waterfront sites. We opted for a patio site which was more expensive but very nice and helped prevent the dogs from tracking sand into the RV. This KOA has lots of family oriented activities and access to the Pinellas Trail is right at the park entrance. Wi-Fi is only available at a hotspot near the pool, but was free and worked well. I read a review that said it was in a bad neighborhood, but I didn't see that and we had no problems. They have security at the park entrance at night. We will definitely stay here again.

This campground is a typical KOA with lots of campers in a small space. It was an okay place to spend a couple of nights, but definitely not a destination as we like it. On the positive side, the Pineallis bike trail ran right by the park and was great to walk the dogs or ride bikes, even across the bay on a dedicated bike bridge. Even more positive, since our motorhome is only 26'' and we are portable, we drove over to St Pete Island and down to the end at Pass Grille, parked in the street in public parking and spent the day at the beach. Being April, the weather was perfect and it wasn't at all busy. We then drove up toward the bridge, parked in a Publix parking lot and walked to a restaurant to dinner. Back to the campground for the evening and since it was only our sleeping spot, it wasn't a big deal that it was crowded except for a large group of party folks with teenagers in the cabin behind us. We would probably camp here again because of proximity to beach, but not high on our list. Our Garmin did navigate us into the campground, although it is totally hidden in a "repair shop" kind of neighborhood. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.
