The entrance is tight with a big rig and toad. Some sites are great while others are terrible. When we checked in we were given a site that the help said "you must have booked late the good sites are gone". It sure didn't help my rate. He was right our site was on sand with neighbors very close. The renters here are mostly seasonal and friendly. The biggest complaint I have is a nice site behind me with gravel was open during our whole stay. Why were we not put there? We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Located in the city but feels like a rural park. Sites are just large enough to feel uncrowded, but all are back in, no pull-through. Good mix of snowbirds and campers. Definitely will stay again. We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park in a tropical setting, almost all sites under the shade of mature trees. Some sites gravel, some grass, all back-ins, mix of 30 & 50 amp. Larger rigs placed in grass area (50amp) on bayou, and these sites are very large. Other sites we're closer together, but not claustrophobic. This is a quiet park with many permanent residents that keep their sites neat and clean. Security gate at entrance with nightly patrols; we felt safe there. Although the park is located off a major road (580), it is tucked back along the bayou with minimal road noise. Wi-Fi worked well, pool, clean showers, activities, close to everything you need (grocery, Walmart, restaurants). We had no trouble maneuvering our 45' coach in the park. During our stay, there were several days of heavy rain and we had about 2-3" of standing water at our grass site. We moved to another site without incident. Would stay here again.

Nice dog parks. Great staff. Try to arrive before dark. Maneuvering space a little tight. Keypad security for entrance. Would stay again. We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We stayed two weeks. This time of year there were many residents for several months -- many of whom were repeat visitors. Clean, attractive, and well managed. We would stay here again. We paid weekly winter rate of $335. We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Rate reflects the $189 weekly special. Really nice friendly and helpful staff. Many "permanents, but well kept trailers. Great grounds, super Wi-Fi, easy access to Tampa, Snook fishing off of campground docks, relatively quiet. Cleanest AC'ed restrooms I've ever seen. Good rules for every one. We would stay here again.

This is not a bad place. Forget the water view on the site. There is some water during high tide, but not worth the walk. Nice staff. Decent space between sites. Big problem getting into the park, if you have a big rig and are towing. There is not a lot of room right after you pull in for you and your tow-we had to unhook. The sites have patio's. Some sites have gravel, but most are just dirt and you need to vacuum every day unless you love living in a dirty place. We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed here for a few weeks while my husband was working nearby. We really liked this campground. They have quite a bit of shade and river access if you like canoeing. They have a nice pool, laundry facilities, and clean restrooms and showers. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the park is nearby shopping and restaurants. The sites have concrete patios, but the parking is on dirt or sand. We had problems with ants despite the maintenance crew applying pesticide to control them.

This is one of the best run campgrounds that we have stayed in, over our six years and many thousands of coach miles. Super pet friendly and usable water on two sides. It is near the race track and supermarkets. A very nice pool. The "workout" equipment however, is in the community room and was not conducive to our use. There is a YMCA nearby. We stayed for February. We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Rate indicates a mid summer stay 3/pay 2 special. This is a well run, mainly snowbird park: well maintained and quiet. Our site was grass with a concrete patio, some were improved with stone/shells. Wooded sites, enough so that we did not even attempt roof mounted satellite TV. Cable works very well: 40 channels, including HBO. WiFi worked well, as did our Verizon, ATT, and Sprint data worked well, as did Verizon and Sprint voice. Very nice pool area and clubhouse. A few supplies in store, but they do sell ice cream.

This park is way over priced for what it is. The streets are paved which is nice, but the sites are a mess especially when it rains. Some are shelled which does help but many are real fine black sand. It does have a beautiful pool area & a nice club house. The gardener does a great job with the landscaping all over the park. The downsides are that the washing machines are not kept wiped out, some of the sites have become permanant homes for people that collect too much junk on their site, and the park rules are only for chosen people. We have traveled quite a bit, & we have never found such rude people in management as in this park. They do not want to be bothered with your concerns & are very unfriendly. We would not stay here again. We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

One of the best maintained parks that we have stayed in. Shady sites, excellent wi-fi, cable good. Small lakes and fountains around and waterfront to creek. Two dog runs, both with hot bath available. Bathrooms are spotless. Really good facilities, and pools that are meticulously looked after. Rate quoted is the Spring "Special" of $199 per week. Location is quiet and close to shopping and restaurants. Short drive to Tampa or beaches. We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The park was clean and well maintained. The staff friendly at checkin and allowed us a late check out. They have a very nice size clubhouse with a library of books, CD's and VCR tapes, exercise equipment, a pool table, live music certain nights. The pool besides being clean has a Tiki Hut for use with a gas grill area. The sites along the river were nice and there was a dock to fish from and one dock to relax. Very nice shade trees. We stayed in a 45 foot RV with four slides and had plenty of room if we had been 55 feet. No issues with the electric even using 3 air conditioners.

Very nice park. Large helpful staff. Very well maintained. Very nice facilities, large pool, workout area, pool table meeting rooms. There are a large number of permanent or long term residents, but so far, all are very friendly to transients, with plenty of sites available. Sites are very large and range from dirt with grass, to sea shell gravel. Although they are mostly 90 degree sites, the streets are not that narrow, and the plastic posts that someone mentioned slip right out of a ground socket to ease backing into. This was told to us at check in. Backing in with my 37 ft rig was quite simple as sites are large, especially with the post temporarily removed. Only complaint is that there is but one trash dumpster site near the office, and the park is very large, requiring many people to have to drive their trash to the site. Most people drive in and out during the day anyway, so it isn't really a problem. Rules are normal, and there is no feeling of being watched for violations. Very pet friendly. Many longer term people have even added decking and beautiful plant arrangements and lighting which add to the overall homey feeling. Many sites have large trees nearby which makes satellite TV difficult, although there are sites where it is OK. I was able to park forward enough to miss the trees for satellite reception. Someone mentioned bad cable TV, but ours was excellent as was our friends who were in a site nearby. We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

This is my first time at Bay Bayou and I must say that this park is one of my favorites in the area. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the park is filled with big oak trees and there are little flower gardens planted throughout the park which made me feel like I was at home. The sites themselves are all very large and spacious, I had a premium site right on the river and it was perfect since my husband loves to fish. The staff and the guests are all very friendly and even my dog had a great time playing in the dog park. I would recommend this park to anyone traveling through or staying in the Tampa area! I will be back next year. We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo
