I stayed here for 4 days (03/07/2016 - 03/11/2016) in site 112. This park is very popular for a good reason. Its location is right on the calm crystal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. There's shopping about 5 miles up the road for grocery necessities etc. The sites themselves are water and non water locations. If you can, do your best to get a water site, those are superb. I'd also caution you to watch out for the sites right on the water towers. Those are really the only bad spots simply because you have this obnoxiously huge water tower right behind you. Accessing the campground was easy but there are very low hanging trees here and if you don't pay attention you could have issues backing in. The campground was quiet and fairly private. There is vegetation separating the spots but not enough to make them 100% private. Here's a tip, since everything fills up and this place is booked WAY in advance, they have hold back sites which are released every Friday morning @ 7am EST for the upcoming Friday to Friday week. That was the only way I could get a reservation in mid March but I logged in on Friday at 7am and had no problems. The cell signal for ATT was 1-2 bars w/out a booster. - mjessie

This is one of our favorite campgrounds to go in FL. We have camped here many times in both a tent and RV, and we have enjoyed it every time. Sites are beautiful, you feel like you are part of nature, the water views are awesome and the nearby beach, biking and the fort are fun for exploring. - TampaTMM

My wife and I first camped here 45 years ago and the first picture ever taken of us as a couple was taken at the fort. This was our first return to the park after 45 years and we duplicated that first picture. We really enjoyed the park and campground. It was neat and clean. We stayed in the pet area and our dog enjoyed the large dog park and beach. The North Beach is incredibly beautiful, as it was 45 years ago. The park staff was very friendly and helpful. Most of the sites have vegetation on the sides that give a bit of privacy. Most of the sites are fairly roomy, too.
Our site had, besides water and 20/30/50 amp power, a picnic table and a charcoal grill. We took our own fire pit, but they also rent them at the store. Since it was 90+ degrees we did not have a fire, though. Not at the site, but they have two dump stations. The road area next to the dump stations had standing water at both stations.
We highly recommend this park and look forward to going back again. - bfisher003

Great staff! I made my reservations on line, thinking they were for March. My mistake, they were for May! Got there, nothing available - yet they found us a site after some serious effort! Office staff is excellent! Took care of those in the store BEFORE answering the phone!!! Typical KOA in terms of tightness of sites. Some very close, ours (in older section with no cable tv) was larger. Interior roads are paved, sited are dirt with concrete patio. It's an old campground dealing with much larger rigs than what it was built for! Some shaded, many sites with no or little shade. Only part of the CG has cable tv. We were told OTA tv reception was good. Were able to use Sat TV at our site. Nice pool, 2 hot tubs (one is adults only!). Large clubhouse with play room. Very well stocked camp store. Quiet for its size! Very clean, with staff everywhere eager to please. Many snowbirds and permanent sites but everyone is friendly. Entertainment every weekend evening. Excellent location, very close to Madiera Beach. We will be back! - pamhyatt1

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

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

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

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

We were looking for a place in St Petersburg to stay for my brother's wedding. This place served our needs perfectly. Reasonably priced, very clean, full hookups, and very pet friendly. Everyone was friendly, we enjoyed activities offered. We arrived after his IRS and we made a simple call and were greeted and escorted to our site. They were very helpful in assisting with hook ups and instructions for park. Water pressure was great. Showers very clean. Cement patios = less dirt drug in. Only downside for some may be no tv if short stay. We definitely will return. Thank you Roberts for a wonderful experience!!!!! - Jngdjg

Despite an issue upon check in (the site we were first directed to had a rather permanent looking trailer already on it) overall we found this park clean & quiet. We were fully expecting to hear a lot of shooting from the skeet range right next door (as mentioned on previous reviews) however we did not. Sandy soil made for difficult leveling, and the sewer outlet positioning (right under bus) was less convenient also. There are a lot of trees in the park, and whilst nice, they drop a lot of leaves & a lot of pollen so be wary regarding use of awnings etc. we used leaf blower right before our departure so that we weren't hauling any of this away with us in our awnings. Most of the park seems to be full time residents & permanent trailers, but they're really tidily kept. We found this a very convenient location to St Pete (20 mins). Walkable distance to target, Walmart groceries, pannera bread, etc. Quite a large laundry facility we did not use however, and a tennis court, small pool, horse shoe & boules court. The clubhouse seemed to offer a fair few activities too though we did not partake in any. - leemhicks

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

Older RV park but well maintained. Gravel sites surrounded by lawn. Some shaded and some open. Some sites are short so make sure you ask for a long site if you're in a big rig. The 50 amp plugs receptacles were installed upside down yet the power was fine. It appears that about 75% of the sites are for full timers and the remainder for transients. Nice pool and fitness room. Only 20 minutes to St. Pete beach. Rate reflects Passport America discount. We will stay here again in our motorhome if we need to visit St Pete. - lmg

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

Stayed in a 35' travel trailer. We were in first row of park. Site was very short and we backed up to other people. This was at the end of the snowbird season and the park was still pretty full. Lots of people love it there for the winter. Looks like they have quite a bit for people to do. We stayed for 3 nights. Short drive to Bradenton for restaurants. - Smunro55

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

My parents have stayed as snowbirds in this park for 10+ years. My husband and I have traveled down here to visit them each year for all 10 years at different times of the winter. We have never had a bad stay. The pool is always warm and clean. The restrooms are clean with plenty of hot water. The laundry room is well equipped. There is shuffle board, bocce, BINGO, cards, dominos, other game nights if you are interested. there are other social events and everyone is always made to feel welcome but never pushed to join if not interested. The people are very friendly and warm. Fiesta Grove is a fun park I would highly recommend and hope to use when I retire! - RVr4L1fe

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

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

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
