Just spent the weekend camping at the Naples/Marco Island KOA! Had a raised tent site, was so great! Very spacious, storage available, electric and water! Bonus, had a great/easy boat ramp, brought our jet ski and the water was amazing! Saw dolphins, manatees and more! The staff was very friendly and accommodating! Definitely will be going back! 😎🏕
Our family of four was tent camping, but our site was right under a floodlight. The temporary bathroom/shower was stinky, but clean and functional. The more permanent bathrooms associated with the part of the campground next to the river were way better. Kids loved the pool which was just the right temperature. Convenient location for people who want to fish, kayak, or otherwise boat in the Rookery Bay area, which is an easy two-mile paddle from the campground boat ramp. Attempted to rent a kayak from the campground, but the rules and schedule associated with doing so were too onerous. Couldn't keep it over night, could not get started early enough, and would of had to turn it in too early in the afternoon. Lots of other more amenable places to rent kayaks from in the area that will deliver. The Rookery Bay Educational Center is very close to the campground and you can book great kayak tours through them. The ed center has a touch tank and hiking trails. This KOA is very conveniently located for southwest FL attractions. Don't miss Corkscrew Swamp! This is an expensive campground, but the campground itself does not live up to the price tag, but maybe the location does. This is not the sort of campground that is appealing to spend daylight hours hanging out in unless you want to socialize with the other campers or hang out at the pool. Bring bug spray with DEET and put it on preemptively in the late afternoon to prepare for the attack at sunset. Very little shade available. Campsites are very close together. RV dominated. Seemed to have a thriving retiree community that liked to get together in the rec hall. There is some grass to pitch a tent, but we were told to use the gravel or cement pads associated with the tent sites since the grass has a tendency to flood when it rains from the nearby shallow ditch. Bathrooms are far enough away to be inconvenient when camping with kids at night, and this is NOT a "get up and do your business behind a tree" type campground.…
We spent 2 nights in a basic camping cabin and were very pleased. The person checking us in was very friendly and informative. We were taken to our cabin which was nice and clean. It was a very short walk to the bathroom/shower building. We had to end our Naples area vacation early, but the person checking us out was also friendly and helpful. We definitely plan to stay here again on a future trip.
Check in was fast and easy!! Lena in the office is super! But so are all the other ladies too!! The other park employees were wonderful as well Pat was really helpful and Jimbo too the rest of the campers were nice and we got along really great with everyone!! The showers and restrooms were super clean and Hot water!! Pool and hot tub area was great and lots of Very convenient to stores and restaurants!! Great security and they didn't mind the dogs...can't say enough good things about the place!
Naples/Marco area is a beautiful place. Pubic access to the beaches is a pain and if you do find a access point you get charged to park. I believe they took the Disney approach. The area is over flowing with people and traffic,so to discourage people from coming they charge for public access and people still keep coming. Can't beat the weather. Winter months golf very expensive.
