We stayed here a week and loved it all. The view of the water was lovely. The pool was huge. I called on short notice to make reservations and then had to call back to change the dates. The front office staff was super friendly, calm and accommodating. I truly appreciated their patience which made the whole check in experience very pleasant. I have read so many poor reviews of this campground and don't understand them at all. We have a 2013 Monaco Knight and we had no troubles with space, entering and exiting, and unpleasant events. The space was level and we had several trees for shade. We thought the campground was very neat and they were doing lots of updates. All staff were very friendly and helpful. We have a large dog and had no issues with other animals. The dog parks are efficient. Everything is so close by and Disney was about 1 1/2 hours away. I would stay here again and again...just not in July! Hot, hot, hot! My son stayed in a cabin and I am doing a separate review on his experience. Suffice to say, he is staying here again. Loved our time and it helped to make this one wonderful, fun family vacation. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

The Village Inn is right around the corner. If you are a pie lover, this is your place! Great food and the pie is even better.

They maintain a night security person at the only entrance into the park. They have a large variety of activities for all ages. There is a playground, pool (which is very hot in July), put-put course, 2 floating docks, 2 small laundry areas, (a 3rd facility is being remodeled). The park is beautiful, the staff are very friendly. The manager is a mean, angry woman who can make you wish you had stayed elsewhere. We will NOT be back! We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Eat at the Oyster Shucker ($30) & Crab Shack ($25 Tue&Thu). Both have wonderful AYCE snow crab. Fort Desoto beaches are beautiful for playing in the water; no so good for fishing.

This park is overpriced for the over all experience. On the plus side, the staff is friendly and do the best with what they are given. The park is generally run down and in need of some TLC. The roads are narrow which can make it hard for bigger units to navigate on. The sites are very close and do not reflect as pictured on their web site. There is good wifi here but no cable unless you are a permanent resident. Overall this park is an eye sore with the number of sites that have become residences and lack in property upkeep. At night there is a strong odor of sewer in the air which adds to the run down feeling of this park. The laundry facilities are clean and open 24/7. We would not stay here again.

If you are a snow bird and like lots of park activities,and do not mind close quarters, this is a good place. If you like open spaces and don't care about planned activities (us), then look elsewhere. Since we were visiting family, the park was OK for us. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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.
