Rent the go cart! Only $60 a day but well worth it! Big park so lots of walking if you don’t have the cart (or you can bring your own and/or bikes). Our grandsons loved the golf cart! They have two pools, one geared for kids (closed at 11pm) and another one more for adults (open 24 hours). Bathrooms were extremely clean and air conditioned. Campfire show and movie at night and don’t forget to bring your s’mores to roast! Fireworks and light parade over the lake at night as well. Our space was 1109 and very nice…towards middle of park. They have about three or four places to eat if you don’t want to cook. No mosquitos which is so rare for Florida but Disney goes to great lengths to rid the mosquitos. Great time …. you will love it!
Of course the experience is great. Lots of water since the rain has been insane. Just hit the pool and nothing else. It’s always fun coming here.
Nice campground. Stayed in the back, so pretty quiet. Our third time here. Kids love the ability to ride their Bikes around the campground and love the pool. Plenty of deer to watch throughout the day. Had issues with the laundromat. Could not use my credit card, had to use my card app on my phone. Other than that, I look forward to going here again
We stayed middle of July for 4 days. Only saw 3 other campers the whole time. Park is super quiet and there is a ton of wildlife roaming. Dog friendly, they provide poop bags by the dumpsters. Cell service is practically non existent in the park and within 10 miles from the park. Keep an eye on gas, there’s one place about 6 miles from the park and town is about 15 miles away. Cow camp is only open oct-May. Only 30amp hook up and no sewer, but there is a dump station. The spots are pretty level and the pads are crushed shells. Spot 9 is fully concrete. Most of the spots are fully shaded with trees. If you have a tall rv low hanging branches in the camp area might be an issue. Bath house is very clean and at night the lights are on timers. Cracker shack doesn’t have much and only open fri-Sunday. Only a 30 minute drive to legoland.
This is a great place to go! Get your family and your bikes! So much to do, you don’t have to go to any amusement park! Activities are everywhere. For free! Pool games, make movies. Beach, playgrounds. It is expensive to stay.
Very friendly staff. Nicely laid out with space for everyone. Walk to the beach! Clean with shade. WiFi, water, electric and sewer hookup as well as tent sites and cabins. Cute! Concrete slabs to park your unit on. The sites 100-144 aren’t as shady. The red knot circle is the most shady.
We stayed in this campground for 5 days. The pads are washed before each guest arrives. Sites are roomy and allow plenty of space to park the tow vehicle with ample room remaining. The resort/campground provides transportation to all of the parks and within the resort area, too. Two stores and and four restaurants are available in the campground, but are most easily accessible by bicycle or golf cart. Golf carts are available to rent, but there were none available during our stay. Personal golf carts are allowed, and I’d strongly suggest having one. Plenty of activities are available for families and mostly geared toward younger campers; campfire, s’mores, movies, and visits from Disney characters. The resort has two pools, each with its own atmosphere. One has a spray ground and waterside while the other is meant to be quiet and relaxing. We spent most of our time in the parks, but found that we could get around in the campground on our bikes when we did need to go somewhere besides the amusement parks. There are plenty of activities that give families a break from the amusement parks. The staff is always helpful and friendly. Someone is always available for assistance or general information. There was always someone at the bus stop to ensure guests knew where they needed to go. And overflow parking area is provided for guests who have to move out of the campground at the end of their stay, but still want to spend more time in the amusement parks. This was very helpful for us, we got a few extra hours before we left the area.
Facilities are good, clean and accessible. Not really near anything. Convenient boat ride to Magic Kingdom.
What can I say? There's not a single bad thing about this campground. The site is cleaned before I got there, and I don't mean straightened up, it's scrubbed clean. Perfectly level concrete pad at the perfect angle to easily back into. The buses come often enough.
This campground is pretty small by Florida standards amd is popular so reservations well ahead of time are usually required. The sites are well spaced and separated. The big attraction is off course the spring run and the manatees. The spring is full of manatees most of the winter. So it is a great place to come to see and photograph these elephant relatives.
You can swim and kayak in the spring when the manatees are not present which is most of the summer. Check the website for the status. There’s a little store and restaurant. The store sells a local strawberry rhubarb jam that is amazing. There are picnic grounds and you can also walk along the river down to the Suwannee river. We already have reservations to return.
Great campground with lots of activities. I’ve found that Full-Hookup sites are preferable, IMO, to Premium ones.
We love this campground! We have camped here many times and also just have visited their awesome park and pavilions. The campsites are nice, we had our favorite one. It was big and secluded so we had privacy. Our tent is like the Taj Mahal of tents and we bring lots of stuff with us and we had plenty of room. The bathhouses are very nice and clean. There is a huge park with a great playground, which the kids love, and also a big lake. The pavilions can be used by anyone for the day and they range from small to large. This is just a great place!
For a quick stop it was fine. There are seasonal RV’ers, daily RV’ers, and long term dwellings. Not many trees for shade, but there was a dog walk. The staff was friendly and it was easily accessible from I-4, so it had that going for it. All in all, I wouldn’t stay for more than a day or two.
This one is local for us, but we have had electrical issues on our last two stays. Great sites, wildlife and bath houses for this one. We have experienced power surges and a total power outage on our previous stay, causing us to leave early. Still a favorite, but they really need to work on the infrastructure.
Amazing and Disney always treat you like Royalty 24-7
Great campsites the only reason for 4stars is cost. Expensive camping for 1 or 2. The plus is you are allow up to 10 on a campsite. Plenty to do. Private sites. Reservations ned to be booked way out. Can jandle the larger rv’s.
