37 Parks near Tierra Verde, Florida
Jan 2017 - $41.00
A wonderful stay with fabulous staff. We stayed in the "pet section" which had good walking area for our dogs and nice views of the water from many sites. Dog bags everywhere though we always carry our own. Tight driving for MotorHome due to all the trees but those were a big part of its charm along with the water views, bike and walking paths and nearby beaches (including a dog beach!) Many bath houses which ensured one was nearby. Water & electric but no sewer at all sites. Good camp store. - Belle-Bailey

What a great campground! Lots of biking available on well maintained paved paths. Many of the sites including ours had a great water view, and are very secluded due to the vegetation between sites. Two level dump stations. This is one of the nicest Florida public parks. We can't figure out the negative comments. Bathrooms, though dated, were clean and functional. Also great OTA television, and acceptable Verizon cell revive. - Blowin-the-Wind

This is a lovely campground with most sites backing up to water. The sites feel private with loads of trees and plants for shade and division between. All sites are very deep, even for big rigs but some are narrower than others so check each one (ours had some trees and overhang that made it a bit tight but we managed). Sites only have electric and water, no sewer or fire pit. You can bring your own fire pit; there's a large picnic table and a permanent charcoal grill. The dump station was close to ours but we were near the front. The showers were great with good water pressure and plenty of hot water; restrooms were clean. Admission to Ft. DeSoto Park is included in the camping fee. Bring your bikes! There's lots of paved bike trails and it's a short ride from the campgrounds to the park. Ft. DeSoto Park has a large leash-free fenced area for dogs to run, as well as a great dog beach (also leash-free). As with the previous review, we also had an issue with ants getting in the trailer, going for the dog food apparently. Being by the water, there were also a lot of mosquitos and "no-see-ums", so bring bug spray and citronella candles! Beautiful scenery though with a variety of local birds and awesome sunsets overlooking the water. Also, it was very quiet, even being in the area for pets. - new FL camper

We stay at this park while visiting family and friends in the area. As others have noted you drive thru an industrial area to get to the park but once you enter it is a lot different. Large oak trees shade many of the campsites and others are along the water. As with many KOA's the sites are close together with little to no ground cover between. Although some aspects of the campground are showing their age the park is kept clean and we did not experience any problems with utilities. The pool and hot tub area is very nice and the restroom/showers at the pool have just been renovated and are among the nicest we have encountered. As campgrounds are limited in this area the location of this one makes it an ideal choice for access to the beaches and other activities the area has to offer. Staff friendly and helpful. Check in was quick and easy. We will camp here again. - 21fbrs

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! - LBell690

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. - Let'sGo!

Gravel is only under the trailer, there's a concrete pad to step on and to set chairs on. The tow vehicle is parked on blacktop. Everyone is friendly, the park is very clean and their working to improve new sites. This is a adult park. It's close to the beaches, lots of restaurants and too many places for my wife to shop. When I come back to this area I will be coming here. We stayed for one week. - Lindas Old Man
May 2015 - $30.00
Over priced for it's location. Not in a very appealing neighborhood. Passport America list price was $24, but they charged $30 a night saying their price had gone up. Overall park well maintained and clean.
We will not stay here again. - Abner
Feb 2013 - $43.00
Rate reflects average for 16 days including weekly/daily. This park was excellent. We are most likely going to stay the winter there. Pet Friendly (even has a dog park), brand new pool about to open, efficient front office and maintenance staff, and welcoming residents. Even though many permanent folks are here, it has the feel of a vacation park. - Bay Area Early retirees

Rate shown is Good Sam rate for peak season. Their summer rate is slightly less. This is an older park that civilization has now surrounded. A six lane highway (Gandy Blvd) is on the park's north perimeter. I would recommend avoiding sites 555 thru 572 that back up to the highway unless you enjoy traffic noise at all hours. A large section of the park is devoted to well-kept park model homes. Most of the RV sites are 90 degree back-ins and a little tight for large towables. There are a few pull-thrus that can accommodate larger rigs. Staff is friendly. Park is convenient to most parts of the Tampa Bay area. No cable in the section we stay in and trees can interfere with satellite reception. However, OTA reception is excellent. We have stayed here several times and will again in the future. - halfdimes

We were looking for a park to set up in while visiting family in St Pete. Everyone we encountered was great from the front desk to the guy who took us to our spot and helped us back in and explained all the hook ups just in case I wasn't sure :) What we didn't like was that most of this park is permanent mobile homes, they were well maintained but our spot was in between two mobile homes. Now this wasn't such a problem since we were only using our rig to sleep in, but if we were looking for a good camping spot to hang out in this really didn't give us the right feel. Didn't get a chance to use the pool or anything, but all looked well maintained. - danewguy

We originally planned to stay one week but liked the park and area so well we extended to two. The office staff is very helpful but hours are a little problematic. The office is open M-F from 9-4 (closed 12-1 for lunch). Closed on weekends. We had a reservation but arrived on a Sat. Staff left info for us and there is a phone to call the on duty person who came and helped us get into our space. He was great. Roads are narrow and I haven't seen any pull thru spaces but the back ins (once you get parked) have plenty of room. There are big shade trees all around which is good/bad. Nice to sit outside but they drop stuff all over the coach. Not all spaces have the trees. Love the outdoor laundry. There are plenty of machines and they are reasonably priced. Went in and looked at restrooms (which are clean) but use our own facilities. There are a lot of folks here long term but they are friendly and there are lots of fun activities going on. The only down side is the shooting range that is next door. Weekends and Wednesdays I felt like I was in a war zone but then I am not a gun aficionado. If we come back to St. Pete we will definitely stay here. - TwoE's

Things I liked were the Staff was very pleasant and helpful. The long term snowbirds and permanents are the priority here and they were most friendly and those we talked with raved about the place. Many have been there for years. The location of this campground is great as it is minutes to St Petersburg or Bradenton. Access for big rigs is good as the roads are paved and wide enough to maneuver. Pool and spa area is beautiful and virtually on the water with magnificent views. The pool was heated and very comfortable for swimming. Not so good things are short timers are not the priority here. Sites are not so level. I needed to drag out the blocks to lift the front end higher. Each site has a slab for outside sitting, and some were in pretty shabby condition. Picnic tables are real rough as they appear many years old, and do not appear to have ever seen any paint. Visual appeal for our site was less than ideal. The dumpsters were not in some remote part of the campground as is typical in most. We were located across the road from dumpsters and storage areas. We spent two weeks watching everyone arrive daily, often in noisy trucks, to dump their trash in the dumpster. It was a lot of undesired noise and an unsightly view. But only a few sites in the 40?s numbers are subject to this. The spa was not working during our stay. WIFI signal was strong at our site 43 however the bandwidth was poor. We heard others comment on how poor the WIFI worked. Cable is not ?turned on? at any given site. We were told we must go in town and contact Brighthouse to have cable turned on at our site. I assume at our cost. We did not pursue having it turned on. TV Reception was not so good for us. Most evening TV shows we were used to were unavailable. - Denny Pike

Nice enough RV park, typical snowbird park. Sites are tight, the back in's in the center are literally back to back RV's. The pool and hot tub were operational, clean, and nice. The game room was seldom if ever used while we were there, 2 free pool tables, and a ping pong table. We didn't take in the breakfast meals, or other things they had, but heard good reviews. This is mostly a snowbird location, has nice older large trees and shade, electric/water/sewage was not a problem all worked well. Very good restaurant within walking distance (just watch the traffic while crossing). The rate reflects a monthly rate, would definitely stay here again. - Robnmo

Nice little campground near Tampa/St Pete. It was easy to find, easy to check-in and easy to set up. The pool/hot tub are nice and the have a nice rec room with a TV, free pool tables and ping pong. We also enjoyed hanging out on the pier. The restaurant across the street (Crab Trap) was also really good. My Annapolis-raised wife says they have the best Maryland crab-cakes she has had in Florida. We would only use this for short visits, but we are definitely going back. Only drawback was $47 with military discount seemed pricey for a campground this old and small. - TaShoulders

Lovely park, with "Old Florida" appeal. 200+ spaces, approximately 170 on paved roads with concrete pad and full hookup. The remainder are located in the woodsy areas along the creek. This park is very active during the winter season. Park personnel is extremely friendly and very involved. We were there for 4 weeks and they had live entertainment weekly. There is a heated pool, our only complaint is that it closes too early in the day, but it is very clean and tropical. This is a very clean park and even though you feel like you are in the woods you are only 4-5 miles from everything. Will definitely return. - traveling reviews

First the good. This park is charming in location and landscaping with flowers, shrubs, and beautiful live oaks covered with Spanish moss. There are many activities and events for the residents ti include a sparkling clean pool and a scenic location next to a fishing and canoeing creek. The people are quite friendly and provided escort to the site and parking assistance. Water pressure was good and electric tested out correctly. Now for the disappointing. As we were only staying one night, we were assigned a spot in the overflow with only water and electric 10 feet from the trash compacter. The site had no sewer hookup, no table, and no gravel or concrete pad even though we paid the full daily rate charged for a complete site. We were told all one night stays are assigned to this area. FHU sites were available and empty when we walked around the park. There is one laundry/bathhouse (6 sets of washer dryers and 3 showers and toilets each for men and women) for the entire park, and the one trash dumpster/compacter. The compacter runs and grinds every time anyone puts a bag of garbage in, even after quiet hours. Roads are narrow in this park, and there are many trees and tight corners. Most sites are back-in and are not angled, but sit perpendicular to the road. Be sure to arrive during office hours so you can find your spot and determine the best way to get to your location. Office hours are 9-4. - Beach House on the Move

Nice campground with new owners. According to the owner it has been a work in progress to upgrade this campground. The only drawback is that there are no sewer hookup in the grassy section. They pump you out without any problems. WI-Fi is spotty but does work OK. And by the way, there is a train track nearby as usual. We would stay here again. - Dennis Reid
May 2015 - $15.00
We stayed here for 9 months developing our RV inspection business. It was cheaper than most for winter rates, but you get what you pay for. For a full time RVer my impression is this is an old park model park for snowbirds. This makes it tough for the bigger RVs to get into. If management is there, they will help you get in.
In the busy season there are vehicles everywhere. With the tight roads navigating the park can be a challenge.
The sites have minimal asphalt and it is mostly old and deteriorating. Most sites slope from back to front with sewer located in the back. The grass is mostly weeds and there are lots of ants. Sitting out most times of the year is difficult due to mosquitoes and no-see-ums.
Water pressure is good and the free Wi-Fi, outside of the busy season, is adequate.
You are at least 30 minutes from the beach depending on traffic. The closest grocery store is 7 miles away. There is a Dollar General about a half mile away.
The park is located right next to train tracks. I counted anywhere from two to ten trains a day with excessive whistle blowing as the train crosses Bayshore Rd. If you are hard of hearing the vibrations will alert you to their presence. LOL
Rates: Yearly $344/mo plus electric, monthly in the busy season is $772, $399 out of the busy season. Nightly is $39/nt in season, $30 out of season. - Howard Jaros

Recently new managers have done a great job of improving this park. Very clean, well kept, and friendly, helpful staff. Wifi worked excellent.
We would definitely stay here again. - dagopapa

Park is about 2/3 permanent park models and 1/3 RV's. Some of the permanents are older, but all are exceptionally well kept. Residents are friendly, and there are many scheduled activities (as well as many informal groups throughout the park). Many RV's are seasonal and have been coming back for years.
Hook ups were convenient. Wi-Fi connection was excellent. No cable TV, but Dish reception was great, and antenna brought in major network channels.
We did need leveling blocks at Site 151, but most of the sites looked better. - RagTopDay
Jan 2013 - $32.00
What makes this park a great place to stop or to spend the Winter here is the people. From the office on down, friendly folks and a well organized park with plenty of things going on and lots to do. I would come back here again, but two things bothered me while here. The "Orange Juice Special" in back of the park. About 5 times a day this train comes by blowing and blowing the horn mainly because there are 3 crossings near by. And, to a lesser extent, US 41 in front with highway noise. Never-the-less, great park, you will enjoy your stay. - retiredblade
Mar 2010 - $25.00
This is a 55+ park. Paved roads, grass sites with patios and table. Many park models with RV spaces scattered about. They have an “Island” section with shade, water and electric only. Friendly staff and residents. Nice recreation/multi-use hall with a varied selection of activities. No cable TV but open sites for satellite TV. Most sites are 30 amp. Train tracks behind park but not many trains use it. Did not use Wi-Fi, Verizon air card worked OK. I marked this park down as it suffers from low voltage (113-114 usually and down to 105-107 volts) as demand increases in the park. Rate shown is based on monthly rate. - nmmotorhome

Yes, most of the campers were friendly, however, many of the permanent residents were not - they did not appreciate the "outsiders". Noisy park - every day. Great dance hall - dancing every two weeks! Decent WiFi in the clubhouse - none at campsites. Campsites very tight and rough and dirty. Water condition - terrible! Has anyone heard the term "volume" (is all that matters - NOT the pressure!) Crazy! For weeks, pressure was only 35 psi. After complaining (polite discussions with owner), they made some improvement - should have been done long before - pressure went up to about 50 psi - still minimal. Been to a dozen or more other parks in Florida - private and public - all at least 55 psi and usually 60+ psi. And, the water smells bad! Glad to be gone and will not return! BTW - anyone 50+ years of age can attend their dances ($5 per person). Stay someplace else - lots of other choices. - wjhgolf4

What a friendly place! We were set in between two park models. Residents on both sides came out to welcome us as we parked. More than half the sites are park models, but all are well tended and landscaped. Lots of "park spirit" - many activities - they had a dance with live music while we were here. The pool is very nice. The showers are dated but clean. - MT Pokets

This place allows first two nights Passport price, then full price. About half of the sites have park models on them. Most of the people there are there for the winter. Very nice people staying there and even though we were only staying 4 nights they made us feel very welcomed and invited us to join in with all their activities. Lots of activities. Very nice swimming pool, about 89º. - jhav
