Back for our yearly July 4th stay. Never gets old staying here. Contruction has finally started on the Hotel, can't wait to get real bathrooms/showers and laundry back. WiFi still needs to be upgraded. 3G MiFi works fine if you have it.
Decent KOA, large game room, but found a local Hick making fun of my teenage Autistic son for playing in the sandbox. Pool was clean, sites seemed pretty close to each other in my opinion. The staff was very friendly. I probably would not stay here given the seasonal crowds manners.
I come here at least once a year. This is the first time I almost regret it. I usually do an earlier season stay, but I found out that August is a very busy month at this campground. Just packed wall to wall with people. I found it hard to use the pool because of how crowded it was. For some reason the kiddie pool was closed as well. We were on a red carpet suite site... WiFi not sustainable back there.
Back again for our yearly July 4th trip. Still not tired of coming here. The view makes pavement camping worth while. Chilling out on a reclining chair taking in the breeze and view is plenty enough to do. I wasn't aware of the hotel construction till shortly before I arrived. Not a bother as they haven't broke ground yet, but the temporary bathroom accommodations leave a lot to be desired in 90 degree plus weather. If they were all air conditioned my opinion of that would change a bit. So needless to say it was a stinky 5 days as none of us used the sweat box temporary showers. I enjoyed my stay though, and will be back again next year.
The Green County people have one side of the fairgrounds that they allow campers into. It is all grass and not level. Gave my power jacks a work out. All sites have access to power. I only saw 110, 20, and 30 amp services. There are very few sites with access to water connections, and it is first come first serve in regards to that, but there is some water hook up areas. No sewer, but there is a dump site on premises, and I saw a pump out truck drive around at least once during my day and half stay. I don't think there are showers, but there are bathrooms. There is a large sign as you pull in that says absolutely no dogs. That freaked me out a bit as I pulled in with my Husky. I think that was meant for the fairgrounds festivity areas. As no one said anything about my dog, and there were several others in there as well. Website also states nothing about no pets, so we just made sure we picked up after him and enjoyed our stay. All in all it is a very minimal accommodations campground, but the convenience factor if you're doing something at the fairgrounds is hard to beat. We walked the 200 yards right into the festival.
This is a newer KOA, only 5 years old. Wi-Fi was great, till it rained and everyone used it at once, then it was very much useless, but most of the time it was strong and fast. The kids loved this KOA. Game room, heated pool, pizza service. Owners are very kind. My only complaint is gravel and mud. This would be a top notch campground if there was some paving. When dry it's not an issue; when it rains, mud everywhere.
Park is very family oriented. Tons of kids running around, so your kids not finding someone to play with is almost impossible. They have a store and serve food. Has lots of activities for the kids, a driving range, mini golf, jumping pillow, peddle cars, etc. My kids loved it. Internet is fast and available. My only complaints are: The sewer hook up port on my full hook up lot was raised, so I had to hold my sewer line up to dump. I did not have water for a day because the guy next to me took out his tap, not really the campgrounds fault but they should have brought a plumber in faster. I didn't like how kids continuously walk through the campsites. My site was also off level to the point my jacks raised the front wheels of my MH off the ground. I think a little attention in this area could help my rating. In any case my kids loved this campground. If they are happy, I'm happy.
This is an interesting park. I had campsite zero. Pretty stellar view as I was parked parallel to water shoreline. I enjoyed the view, but I am sure the 3 sites my RV blocked the water view from were not as happy looking at the side of my MH. People were very friendly, but loud. Harley's driving along the road a few feet from my motorhome was bothersome, but quiet hours were honored after dark. The location made for a boring night for the kids. There is a real nice playground, but being surrounded by trees and in the valley only 1 TV station could be pulled in, and it was not a network channel. That is not the park's fault, but not being able to get on the Internet or watch TV made the kids go bonkers. I, however, did enjoy the view and my stay.
Welcomed by friendly owners/staff. Wi-Fi a bit slow, but worked and had very strong signal. Our campsite was not very close to showers or front office. Park was very quiet at night, everyone seemed very considerate of each other. Would camp here again.
Back for our yearly July 4th tradition. I have read many of the positive and negative comments below, and would like to chime in on some of them. These are my opinions, however strong some may think they are. Dump site: there are 2, one at the gas dock, the other at the gates with a supplied hose very much in plain sight. This is a boat marina, it is paved, and it is tight, but that doesn't stop any of us regulars, so if you are longer than 40' and aren't good backing up your rig then (a) find another place to stay or (b) downsize to something you can handle backing up. Head (bathrooms in nautical terms): this is a Boat Marina! The view is to die for. The owners (not staff) are the friendliest most accommodating people I have met. Word of this place has got out and it is true there is often no vacancies, so try to plan your stay in advance. (It used to be a well kept secret until somebody published it on Woodall's.) The bathroom and showers are a little behind times, but they work, provide hot water and get the job done! If you are the type who wants to stay in a Class 'A' only park, a park that discriminates on age of rig, a park with pristine luxury bathrooms, a park with concierge service, yuppieville park, and don't like places without pull through sites, or places that frown upon us common folk who cannot afford half million dollar coaches: then this is not the place for you. Keep going to the next place and leave room for those of us that see the beauty that completely envelopes you as you stay here. I rarely even close my solar shades here, it is that gorgeous. Now if only they could get the WiFi provider to improve their service!
This was not our first time here. But this time, it was so early in the season that I believe there were only 3 of us in the park. 1 overnighter came in but was gone by morning. It snowed, and weather was horrible, but that was not Yogi's fault. We came for Mother's Day festivities. The park took care of us. On Mother's Day Yogi brought food and a rose for my wife. The pool wasn't open yet but considering the weather that didn't matter. There were some activities for the kids, but seeing we were the only one's using the activities they were minimized. I like this campground; It will continue to be a once a year or so stop for us.
The owners are great, very nice. The grounds are gravel, and well kept. Beautiful flowers decorate the front, and a few gazebos for relaxing in the shade are available. The dark park was used and appreciated to wear our Huskies energy level down a bit. The first day we arrived there was a cook out at the pool, good food was provided at no extra cost. Will stay here again.
I have stayed here before. The biting bugs were abundant this time, I'd love to see Disney do some abatement on them. They moved the water connection from last time I was here, so it is much easier to maneuver into the site now. Still one of my favorite campgrounds. Now if they could only get Wi-Fi to work throughout I'd be jumping for joy.
I have stayed here before, this particular stay was not our best. There were heavy down pours, and the site they put us on was washing out as we were on it, not only that it the trees prevented us from extending our slide and awning. After asking to be moved the next site was much nicer.
I am so glad we stayed here. Looking around at the other campgrounds, the space between campsites is considerable. I found the site pretty level, well maintained, and with an excellent view. It was so calming staying here. No hustle and bustle, no feeling like you had to keep the kids quiet, and everyone was friendly. My only complaints are that you will need to bring an extra sewer line and a coupler. Also the Wi-Fi is very slow, but it works. They have minivans on site you can rent. Important to those of us with small tow vehicles wanting more room for a longer trip to Devil's Tower or such. Highly recommend this RV park.
The staff sure go out of their way to make you feel at home. The location is awesome. My wife always asks me for a lake view, well you can't get any closer to a major body of water than this. Spectacular views; walking distance to the best Duluth has to offer, etc... It is true this is a boat marina, fully paved, no playground, but my 3 kids ages 7-13 had a great time over our 9 day stay. The public beaches and playgrounds are walking distance, as well as the Duluth Waterfront Shops. The canal and the 1000 foot long Ore Ships amazed the kids every time they passed by. Oh, and if you're fortunate enough to get in during the July fourth holiday, the fireworks are launched a few hundred yards off the breakwater, and they are very well done. I have made this a yearly stop for us. Family tradition to begin now.
This is our favorite campground. We try to do Fort Wilderness a couple times a year. Sites are paved and level, but some are difficult for some larger rigs to back in. The water connections at the front of the site are very poorly planned and I saw a long rig take one out as it was trying to maneuver out. Take an extra water hose, we needed about 30 feet total to connect. The grounds are very superbly maintained, just as you would expect from Disney. The people are polite, and the services are plenty. This is the best RV park I have ever visited. Most people stay here because of it being on the Disney property. They have transportation to and from the parks, but keep in mind that Fort Wilderness has a lot to offer, so plan an extra day or so just to enjoy the campground: it's worth it. Highly recommend this campground, but make your reservations in advance as you will find there are plenty of others that call Fort Wilderness their favorite as well.
We stopped in Paducah KOA for overnights twice now. The owner's/office people are very polite. The over nighter sites are all pull thru's and are separate from the rest of the campgrounds. Easy access to and from the site. The site was level, and a pond and shelter area was adjacent to our site. Very pretty. Pool was well kept as well. We will continue to stop here as one of our favorite over nighter spots. I give a very high rating for this KOA, in fact the only reason I did not rate them perfect is because the campgrounds power went out in the middle of the night, and Kentucky in the summer is very humid and hot. Can't start your generator at 3am, so until power was restored we had to bear with the heat. Having said this, I have had much worse electrical issues at other campgrounds, and because I like this campground so much I will not ding them too hard for the power failure. I will definitely return to this campground.
We have over nighted in Forsyth twice now. The store is well stocked, better than most KOA's. Over nighter's are all pull thru's and are separate from rest of campgrounds. They have a beautiful pond. Though the geese are a bit protective of the shorelines. The first time we arrived was after hours and we found it difficult to park our motorhome level. In fact we were leaning pretty hard but I can't blame this entirely on KOA because I was exhausted and it was so dark I just didn't want to fiddle around with finding the center of the gravel pad. Our second stay was on the same site and we were fairly level. Their Wi-FI is strong, but you only get a couple hours of free time a day. So paying per hour gets pricey. They have helpers to help guide you into your site, which is nice. Pool was fairly clean, but could be cleaner. Showers were clean. Close to the highway, but honestly, not noticeable. I think Jake Breaking in prohibited in that stretch of road so you don't hear the trucks. This campground is very nice, and I would stay overnight again.
We stayed for the Boo Boo Birthday Bash over Memorial Day weekend. The fourth day was free so we arrived a day early. Campsite was great, though pitched a bit on the excessive side. My jacks had to extend far enough to raise the front wheels off the ground. On a positive note, it did rain and the ground water ran off quickly away from the campsites. Our dog was welcomed, and there are a lot of activities for the kids. The water-park is OK, however the main swimming pool really needed to be cleaned as pine needles littered the pool. As this is a family based campground, kids are everywhere but I found most to be very respectful. The campground is right off the highway, which is not that bad, but at night time the noise is very noticeable. By turning on a fan I was able to drown out the sound of the traffic. If it wasn't for the pool cleanliness and the highway, I would have rated this campground higher. We will return to this campground.
