The Orlando area has many campgrounds and as they all get busy in the winter, rates can go way up. The KOA in Kissimmee is small and not big-rig friendly. Sites are described as pull-thru and "not a problem" for a 43' coach. However, getting in WAS a problem due to the tight turns and palm tree in exactly the wrong position to get into the site.
Access to the park was difficult as no signs are visible from the main roadway. I can't imagine how anyone would find this place without GPS as it is hidden behind a run-down motel.
240v 50-amp service is good, water pressure is good and the water tastes good.
The cable connection is totally analog and no HD signal is available.
Wi-Fi is available through the dreaded Tengointernet but is only free for the first night. After that you'll have to buy a $.99 coupon every day. Frankly, it's not worth it as the bandwidth is very low, even in mid-day. If you travel with a Verizon MyFy card the service is a little better but I only saw three bars on the iPhone.
This KOA is enthusiastically managed with Karaoke events, inexpensive breakfasts on certain days and your name proclaims your arrival on a welcome board.
Nevertheless, access is poor and this KOA is not recommended for any coach over 38'.
Tons of shopping nearby in this highly congested area not far from the big Orlando attractions.
I travel in a 43' Monaco and will not be back
