“The Kids Loved It!”
Reviewed April 17, 2008

We stayed here this past weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I cannot comment on the reservation policies that others have mentioned because we were booked as a group and someone else handled that, but the campground itself was very nice. It has tall pine trees that keep the area relatively well shaded. The pool was adequate and the kids loved it. The facilities were very clean.

One night we heard the chimps from Lion Country Safari start up (lover's quarrel?). The best part overall, however, was being able to hear the lions start roaring each morning. Where else could you do that?? They continued periodically through our breakfast time. (It's no wonder they don't restrict the parrots considering the other wildlife noise in the area!) Someone said they could not hear the lions from their cabin, but we were in a tent. As an FYI, the traffic on Southern Boulevard could be heard throughout the night, but it was managable.

We will stay again next year!

We rented a Kamping Kabin at the LCS KOA for my boyfriend's birthday.

It was our first time in a KOA Kabin and our first visit to a KOA. The campground was really nice. The bathrooms and shower rooms were very clean and the park staff was extremely nice and helpful. Thanks to the helpful check-in staff that directed us to a nearby Smokey Bones, we had a wonderful dinner before settling in for the night.

One word of warning to anyone spending their first night in one of the Kabins: bring an air mattress... we were glad we did. They do have beds in the kabins, but they are not very comfortable. Our first night was a little rough, but it was our own fault for being too lazy to go out and get our mattress out of the car after trying to sleep for a few hours. The second night was much better. We inflated the mattress and put it right on top of the kabin bed and slept like babies all night. I think a couple of sleeping bags would have also done the trick.

At the time of our stay we were given a $3.00 off coupon for Lion Country Safari.

The campground has a pool, shuffleboard, horseshoes and other activities. The camp store is well stocked with many items including ice, drinks, breakfast foods, and other items to make your stay more pleasant.

I was very happy with everything at the campground and do recommend it.

My wife and I wanted to camp with her brother (driving to the keys and wanted to stop in West Palm Beach first) so we all booked a reservation at Lion Country Safari KOA. First, when you book there, they cannot give you a campsite (like many other campgrounds). They can't guarantee anything and won't give you a campsite till you arrive. We found out why. Almost 75% of their campers are seasonal and are from Canada (not complaining anything about Canadian people) but seasonal campers get their campground for about 1/2 what a 3 day camper pays (in January 2006). There are very few kids (so good luck if you want to camp there if there are any sites open). You cannot ride a bike in the campground at night (even if you have a light on your bike)...lots of rules, don't do this, don't do that. No wireless internet anywhere, but they do have a dial up line you can plug into at the office. Also, no cable tv (close to a major area, West Palm Beach/South Florida). The traffic is horrendous in the area on Southern Blvd. - dump trucks as far as you can see...also, the campground has strict rules on dogs, but not parrots. One camper near the office had at least two parrots in cages in his "seasonal" screened room next to his rv. We could hear them three streets over. But, evidently there are no rules for them. This is definetly not a place to take your kids. Also, it would be nice if KOA could let you reserve a site but this campground caters to seasonal people and you are almost out of luck if you want a particular site. They are all grabbed up by people staying long term. There is a posted notice in the office about only camping in Florida 6 months. I almost forgot, all those sites with flowers, the decorative bottoms on your rv's, etc. really look nice if you are going to be there for a long time..! Enjoy it - I will never, ever camp there again...
