My girlfriend and I have lived in the St. Pete area for many, many years and have never stayed at this campground . We recently acquired a chocolate lab puppy and wanted to stay somewhere that was on the water. We reserved a one room cabin on the water for Father's Day weekend, BEST GETAWAY WEEKEND WE HAVE EVER HAD!!!!... More

From the moment we arrived here we had found our second home. The staff here are extremely friendly. Personal service is top on their list. No matter what they aim to please 100% of the time. Upon first coming into the road leading to this place, you get a let down feeling only because you have to cross through an... More

Ok I will be honest I was reluctant to go on this trip my wife planned for Memorial day weekend. I read the reviews on trip advisor and there are some negative and positive reviews as usual. My family's experience was a 5 out of 5....great staff putting emphasis on kids and planned events all holiday weekend long. We got... More

This park was awful from the moment we pulled in. We are tent campers, and have stayed at many other KOA Kampgrounds. This park is on a bayou, allowing for a wonderful assortment of large, biting bugs. We got a site "on the water," which proved to be a paved area with a picnic table, and a small opening in... More

This place is so relaxing and family oriented that you will feel like home being there. On Friday night we roasted smores and went swimming. Saturday the while day was so easily planned by Koa that after breakfast we went to Treasure island beach right by Johns pass. The beach was so nice and who can't beat the white sands.... More

I thought the cabins were perfect and reasonably priced. I caught two fish within an hour of arriving! The campground is centrally located near John's Pass, The Sunshine Skyway Bridge and St. Petersberg. The place is lively, but the party was contained. Lori, the manager gave us a tour before we rented. She really went the extra mile to ensure... More

Great grounds and quaint cabins...but that is about it. Be prepared to bring Amazon Mosquito repellant and deal with maw and paw Jed...as this reminded me of the days during Hee Haw Junction. Don't get me wrong...these kind folks kinda have their own ways about them. They had a few functions that were feasible...but next time I think about camping... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of March for our spring break. We had a site on the water, which really meant mangroves. There was a small area where we could get our kayaks in and out. The whole bayou that surrounds the campground is oyster beds. The boys tried to do some exploring on the sandbars, but... More

Everything was less than expected. Pool area crowded Not many sunbeds or chairs. Looked better on internet. Staff in a funny combo of shop/reception. Does not really go well. Homeless people, OR nearly homeless?, passing by OR living there? Too dark at night. Does not feel safe. Water in bayou not ok for swimming.
