Very big park with tons of organized activities and facilities. Close to town and beach. Reasonably neat and tidy. About 50/50 rvs and park trailers. I'd guess about 20% transients like us. We spent a week there, because other family members are there for the season. Reasons for the low rating: For the price, the wifi should work. For the price, the cable tv signal should be strong. The hookup connections were far from the parking spot, extending my electric cable and hoses to the max. Many of the sites, including ours, bordered a busy noisy street. The animals at the adjacent retired circus animal home helped us greet every sunrise. The helicopter school added to the daytime noise. All in, not great value for the money.
We gave this place a 3 on 10. Any park that has a sign saying "Welcome to the best RV Park in the Worlds" should arouse suspicion. Any park that has less than half of its 250 sites occupied during March Break, should arouse suspicion. We like to think of KOAs as "The best surprise is no surprise." But I guess you can't not be surprised every time. The good points: It is relatively close to the attractions. The price is competitive. The main things work. On the other hand: The self-serve dumpsters were full to overflowing on Saturday when we arrived, and stayed that way until they were emptied on Monday (7 AM - noisy), with the associated aromatics. But the emptying did not include a bunch of mattresses and other junk that had been rotting in the dumpster enclosure for some time. And, today, Saturday again, they are back to overflowing and stinking. We were in the campground enough of the time to see that the toilets were not cleaned daily. The laundry room was gross: filthy and smelly. Of the 250 sites, about half were full, and a fair number of these had that deserted look. A bunch seemed to be for sale. Imagine trying to get $25 K for a rusted out 1978 hulk of tin. The park is mostly on a hill, which didn't seem to bother the battalions of ants that invaded us twice: no spraying that we saw. The tradeoff for proximity to the attractions is that the park is located at the vortex of I-4, SR-27 and the local water filtration plant: talk about sensory stimulation. As a one-nighter on the way to somewhere else, perhaps this joint is OK, but for a week of touristing: not.
Just finishing a 3 week stay, which has been very pleasant. We started out on one of the 'pods', where we had a big site. But, we moved for 2 reasons. 1) The shade tree was shedding nuts the size of small coconuts, which dinged both our truck and trailer. 2) One of our neighbours, while very friendly, was quite intrusive - a risk in any campground. The new site (#22) is lakefront, and, although there are adjacent sites, you really can't see them, nor they you. It's a beautiful park, with lots of biking and walking opportunities. Gets a bit busy on weekends, when the general public shows up, but the camping area is well segmented and peaceful. There's no camp store, but the folks in the office are most pleasant and helpful. It's about 30 mins to the beach and 15 mins to the giant Sawgrass Mills mall. Lots of typical retail and restaurants and golf within 5 minutes. We'd come again for sure.
Typical KOA thruway park, but just far enough away from the highway (I-95) that noise was not an issue. We like to think of KOAs as 'the best surprise is no surprise' and this one was no exception. Everything worked. Staff were pleasant. WIFI facility was a bit weird, but no problem. Great overnight stopping place while en route, but nothing to hand around for.
This is my first review, after having been guided by the reviews of others for 3 years. This is the best RV park we have stayed in. It was a total delight. Staff were friendly, responsive and helpful. Sites were large and shaded. Everything worked. Lack of cable TV was no problem since many channels were available via the antenna. Park was quiet and removed from main roads. We could see how much fun a family would have in the summer, when all the facilities of the whole park were up and running. Book early and stay late. This place is excellent.
