The largest KOA, Okeechobee teems with fun-filled amenities for families and entire rallies. This tropical vacation resort features its own palm-fringed 9-hole golf course, driving range and putting green. Play tennis on four courts. Flex your muscles at the fitness center or soak in a pool: one for families, another for kids and a third for adults only. Fishing on Lake Okeechobee is a lure--and so is the kampground's social calendar filled with parades, parties and music events. Join in a Full Moon Bike Ride. Enjoy the Mardi Gras festivities, free Thanksgiving turkey and Christmas decorating contest. Swap fish stories over a cold one or enjoy live weekend entertainment at the Shanty Lounge. Golf cart rentals now available. Every day is special in paradise.

I think it's ridiculous to charge someone 10.70 to visit a friend at the pool for 20 minutes. I informed I was not swimming just visiting. Still same price. The old grouch had the customer service of a hungry hungry badger. I hear from the other locals, this place is going to crap. Whoever bought the Koa are some money grabbing scammers.

First of all, it was not what was advertised. Upon arrival we were told that the francize was bought out in February and that should have told us something. The advertised "Shanty" was not open 7 days a week and not at all. The golf course was under repair, the adult pool breakfast menu had been reduced to pre-prepare sandwiches, the miniature golf course was pitiful, as were the bocce ball and petanque courts. On our 1st night it rained, so we decided not to buy the $5.99 bundle of firewood. The next morning the bundle was increased to $10.00. Everytime we asked about the shortfalls, we were told "New Management". The 3rd morning I had a flat on my bicycle and went over to the store to rent one, only to be told they couldn't be rented (. . . New Management). We never even got a chance to see Lake "O". In their defense, the showers and restroom facilities were top notch. Rinna and Wendy very patiently listened to our misgivings and were very polite and courteous. Oh, yeah, the shuffleboard courts were the best I've very seen at any campground. Bottomline: For a KOA the expected standards were just not there. We were very disappointed and left 4 days early. The potential is there, but the "New Management" better step up the pace or the reputation will be ruined for a long time.

This is a very beautiful place has a canal separating the campsites to the golf course. It is very expensive for what you get. They do not have good Internet service and they do not have good cable service.

The most unprofessional registration process we have experienced. I can't believe KOA allows such behavior from its employee. She even denied us an escort to our site. Sites are built on a camel's hump, are broken concrete, unlevel and on tight streets. Most ridiculous sight we have had. Wifi does not exist though advertised falsely as it turns out. Cable is lousy too and you get to pay for both! The campground is like rush hour with all the golf carts racing around. Expensive too. Avoid this scam at all costs.

We stayed here for three weeks in January Staff are pleasant. Site was clean. They are very close together Enjoyed the pools. We spent most of our time at the family pool as the adult pool is very busy. Park, showers and pools are clean. After rain most of the roads are flooded for days so walking is a challenge. Frustrated with parking at the washrooms by people parking their work trucks days on end. Difficult to back out of our space and meant golf carts parked on lawns as no where to park. Spoke to office twice but nothing was done to stop this. Everyone else follows the rules! Paid for our elderly family to stay over night and they parked in lot as instructed. Don’t know why nothing was done as the truck owners are in their 20s and quite able to walk to parking lot

KOA are suppose to be family friendly. This Koa was advertised as such. We took our grandchildren here. The family pool was excluded from all activities very cold. adult pool is heated very comfortable. with activities no kids allowed there Staff up front are rude. The park model people are rude. It is like you are staying in a war zone the park models Vs the RV travelers. Will not go back with grandkids

For a hefty $95/night fee we: could not connect to the alleged internet, shared one 30 amp hook-up with another RVer (fortunately the other RVer had a 50 amp adapter), had one cable TV hook-up for the 2 RV sites, & the park was more densely packed with people than a third world slum. On the plus side, it backed up to a nice golf resort (we are not golfers), had a nice washer/dryer set-up, was really pet-freindly, and was CLEAN! I would not stay here or recommend it, but it may be for you.

This Koa floods when it rains. We have been there twice now and the first it was great weather but the pool was dirty. Second time it flooded so we went to the Shanty for the entertainment and it was Jay but he had a women that sang with him and she pierced my ears. I just don't care much for karaoke and they said they didn't have it there.

We arrived on Tuesday just as the sky opened up, I fully understand that they can’t control the weather. We had a back in site for a 35 foot motorhome and our friends had the same type of site for their 28 foot Motorhome. In both cases the steps from each RV were not near the cement pad where the picnic table was located. As we stepped out we sank into a pool of dirty black water. The roads in the park were covered in water, so the first night we were trapped in the RV. I mentioned something to the lady at the front office on Wednesday evening and she agreed that the sites weren’t laid out very well. On Thursday evening I again said something to the same lady about the water condition and she then informed me that I could have asked for a site change. My wife has Fibromyalgia and arthritis and never left the RV for fear of falling in the mud. The RV Park was very empty and the staff could have put us in other locations but I was told that the computer picked our site. They had enough staff working that they could see how bad it was and could have relocated us from the beginning. If this is what KOA campgrounds are like then I will find a different one in the future when I’m traveling. We had our 7 year old grandson with us and he wanted to play miniature golf, we couldn’t because it was also under water. A very bad experience for the money that we spent.

This is the largest KOA in the country I understand. Has a pool for kids and a second pool for adults only. They offer a 9 hole golf course. A full liquor bar. Live music on the weekends. Snack bar by the pool.
