5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Let me start by saying that I read some previous reviews about this place and we almost didn't book. Now, after staying there, I really don't understand why anyone would write anything bad about this place. We met up with some friends of ours who were already staying there and our son who is 8 and their twin boys (8 also) had a great time in the park, pool, and mini golf, by the way were very clean areas. They also did some fishing off the dock and one of the boys caught a Redfish. The staff there was fantastic and very helpfull, and the security guard was a real treat to talk to. I've been to other camp grounds and this place gives you that "family" feeling. Although we didn't stay in the cabins as we had our own travel trailer, they looked beautiful. I just can't get over how clean and friendly the camp ground is. Thanks and we will be back!!!

This place was great. A gem in St. Petersburg. Once in the KOA campground we forgot how close we were to home. The staff was courteus and friendly. Plenty of stuff to do with the kids. The weekend we were there they had a scavenger hunt. The kids loved it and so did we. The pool was clean as well as the the shower rooms and restrooms. So much to do there it will keep you busy. Planning our next visit soon.

My daughters & I stayed in a studio lodge/deluxe cabin at this KOA for 2 nights in July. The cabin appeared to be very new and clean.It had a mini-fridge with small freezer compartment, microwave, coffee-maker, and a gas grill on the porch. All linens were supplied as well as paper products. Each cabin also has it's own fire pit area surrounded by pavers and benches. We felt safe, there were cyclist on the bike path but I never saw anyone that appeared homeless or just hanging around as an earlier reviewer noted so maybe security has increased. The pool and hot tub areas were very well kept. We did see snakes in the bayou, don't plan on swimming there. One item that I wished I had packed was cintronella candles for the porch because the bugs were terrible.

Lovely log cabin by bayou, everything we needed, fire pit, nice decking out front, until a group of country hicks turned up and decided to party all night! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and did everything they could to remedy the situation. The site is pleasant, 2 miles inland from Madeira Beach and within walking distance of a couple of places to eat and right on the Pinellas Trail.

The drive into the campgroud may worry you, but I promise when you get to the end of that road, you will be pleased. It is a very quiet area believe it or not. The staff is very nice and helpful. the grounds are clean and very well maintained. The pool and hot tub are crystal clear. Great fishing opportunity...dont forget your poles. Close to beaches, shopping. We will go back if ever in the area again. We enjoyed our stay there.

We Reserved 3 Nights in late June at this KOA. The staff, especially Mike were FANTASTIC!!! They went out of their way to help us make this reunion a success, from seeing to our needs to letting us use the rec hall for our nightly functions. The volunteers in the kitchen were very helpful. Thank you Joyce!! They even had live music by the pool on Saturday and breakfast at the rec hall on Saturday & Sunday at a very nominal cost.
Great to have a pool, lagoon and close by beaches.
The only thing that could be a little better would be better quality mattresses in the cabins.
We were very glad that we picked the KOA in St. Pete for our reunion! We will be doing it again! Thanks so much for all your help!

My girlfriend and I have lived in the St. Pete area for many, many years and have never stayed at this campground . We recently acquired a chocolate lab puppy and wanted to stay somewhere that was on the water. We reserved a one room cabin on the water for Father's Day weekend, BEST GETAWAY WEEKEND WE HAVE EVER HAD!!!! If anyone is looking for a clean, manicured and pet friendly campground then this is your place. The staff is very accommodating and the place is spotless. No issue with bugs or raccoons or noise. Can't wait to return!!!!! If you look at the pictures-you'll see our chocolate lab puppy.
