We stayed at Bay Bayou for 10 great days in September when we first moved to Florida. This resort is gorgeous. It is gated and the security rounds frequently which made us feel very secure and okay leaving our camper to go do things knowing that someone was keeping an eye on things. The staff was very helpful from the...

Stayed here for 4 days for a business trip; this resort is with 15 minutes of our client with easy access to Tampa! Many residents are full-time with built on decks and screen rooms and tropical plants. The site itself is gravel with a nice concrete patio and new picnic table. S/W/E hookups easy and convenient. We walked to Lobster...

Restroom were clean and well maintained. Shaded area for our camper since we have our dog on this trip. Dog run was mowed, and they spray...

Campground is in a great location close to downtown Tampa and Gulf beaches. The park is clean and the spots are level. The staff is very friendly and pretty responsive to requests. We did have to wait 2 days for a picnic table, but it did eventually get there.

We were disappointed in the campground because the website makes it sound like a wonderful "resort," but in reality, if you go there between April and November, it's just a mediocre place to park your camper. The pool was very nice and never crowded. The bathrooms and laundry areas were clean most of the time. Our campsite was awful because...

First time traveling from Canada to Florida with our 5th wheel trailer. When researching resorts in the Tampa area, this one kept being at the top of my list. When we got to Port Richey, we stayed two nights in another resort and were not happy. Then we decided to find the Bay Bayou and stayed two weeks there. Loved...
