My husband and I have lived here for 3 1/2 years. We travel all summer but the rest of the time we call it home. When we travel, we stay in campgrounds. None have compared to this one. We have a very well maintained resort with beautiful bathrooms and 3 laundry rooms. So many of the ones we have stayed... More

I stayed at the RV Resort as a long tern guest for just over 3 years (2009-2012). The is a well managed park with lots of amenities (pool, hot tube, exercise equipment, laundry rooms, free internet access, cable, etc). There is some traffic noise from the bridge behind the Bayou. Otherwise, it was quite and peaceful. This was a great... More

We toured this park looking for a place to stay for awhile. We were greatly disappointed as the sites were very small and near a major road. We were told that our rv could not be more than 10 years old but most campers were over ten years old. Our coach is a 1998 and looks far better than most... More

Visited Tampa for 5 days and tried to find a campground , but had difficulty finding availability. Found Bay Bayou available . Some lots on a tidal creek and some with trees. Full hookups and 50 amp. Location is out of the way a bit, but 15-20 minutes from central. Mostly long term campers.

We chose Bay Bayou for an overnight stay because it was convenient to Tampa International Airport, which is about 20 minutes away. We were traveling in a 38' class A motorhome. The Good: - Pretty much everything. The park itself was very nice and well-maintained, the staff was very nice, and the amenities (pool, etc.), while we didn't use any... More
