Kinda disappointed. I rented three sites. Was charged $3 per day resort fee for each site which was not mentioned when making the reservations. It was far from being a resort campground. Not sure why a KOA campground is also an Encore campground???

Disappointed. The RV site we rented with the tent site was freshly dug up with loose dirt all over the site. There were other empty sites right next to ours, but they wouldn't move us to a different site. Sites very small and tight. They are more interested in permanent people than they are campers.

This is not a wilderness adventure. Campsites are surrounded by RV's and permanent residents. Everyone super friendly. Bathrooms, pool and hot tub good and clean. Nothing much to do on the island without access to a boat. Pet friendly!

We stayed 8 days in order to go fishing. Fishing wasn't great but the campground is excellent. No critters! Clean restrooms and plenty of hot water!

Just wanted to drop a note my wife and I just stayed at your pine island KOA and it was my first time at a KOA or any pay site and was pleasantly surprised I would and will recommend this facility to my friends

Upon arrival we were nicely greeted by Mellisa. She was very helpful and full of info. She was so very pleasant. The whole staff was really very nice and helpful. the tent area isn't really great but we made it work. Nice area clean safe campgrounds. 2 thumbs up

Facilities were clean and staff friendly. Pool was clean as were the restrooms/showers. Campground was very quiet. Only complaint was the extreme distance from the tent sites to the restroom/showers.

This site is far from everything. It is a campground for snowbird. Very very poor tent site. Office close at 18:00, picnic table should be used for firewood. Not many shade site. Went to more then 25 KOA across USA this is the worst I've seen. Good for snowbird over 75 years. I don't know why this camping was able to joined the KOA family it is a shame, what they say is not what you get.

Site was nice and everyone was friendly. Only complaint is that the shower nearest to us was padlocked so we had to drive up to main one near entrance. It's possible we tried to go into it too early though. We liked this island too and everywhere we went people talked to us.

The staff was very helpful and very friendly. We are planning a second trip with an even bigger group this time..would recommend staying here!

Checked in after they were closed. Campsite map was a little confusing - wish the office stayed open longer to help people. Clean campground though.

Our 2nd stay. Staff great! Need more shade trees! FL is hot! Closed all but 1 bathroom!Hard on tent campers!

The camp ground was very nice and the people where awesome

I liked the campground and the pool. The restrooms were adequate. However, our tent site was so close to the huge street lamp and road it made it very difficult to sleep at night as the light stayed on all night. I would suggest to make optional tent areas in a wooded area off the road.

The campground itself was very nice...the bathrooms were clean, but very hot, a ceiling fan or 2 would help. The grounds were well maintained. Loved the club house. But the bugs were horrible.
Apr 29, 2014
payed for tent site w/ water.elect.cable per bill.Site has only elect.Showers are at club house only about one mile away.Contacted customer service about problems they called campgrounds And said that the campground would call us. Nobody called us back campground or customer service. Is KOA a good campground. And look at the web page about the campgrounds services. Very unhappy new customer.

Campground is very crowded and you do not get much space. There is no shade at most of the camp sites. A sewer smell was present in the shower and drinking water and in the air. We left a day early and could not get a refund even thought we were out by the checkout time. Other guests were very nice but staff was rude. No grills on site, and there was a hidden three dollar a day charge.

As a tent occupant, it stunk! just 50 ft. across the street is the catch for all the crap from the 150 RVs. sweet. 20 ft. off the road. not my idea of camping. I left 3 days short of the 7 days I had pre paid for. Not a big deal, I only traveled 4400 miles rnd. trip auto and motorcycle combined. From mpls. MN.THANKS KOA.

We booked a cabin on line, but it was double-booked when we got there, so we ended up taking a tent site. Unfortunately, there are no BBQ grills on tent sites and no public grills. We decided to try to cook on a fire, but the camp store was out of wood and out of charcoal. So we ended up eating out the whole weekend even though we bought food. Tent sites are surrounded by RVs; no privacy.

The campground was clean, well attended to and pool area was very nice. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Bathrooms were in good shape but clean. Sites were nice size and roads did not have potholes in it. Appears ownership reinvests money back into the campground. We will stay again.

Great koa. Very accommodating staff. Like Arnold said, "I'll be back"
Mar 07, 2014
The park was great. Very clean and the people very friendly. We did, however, leave around 11PM. Our site was directly under a street lamp and it was like daytime...no one could sleep. There was no getting away from that light!
Mar 06, 2014
Check in lady very helpful, competent and efficient.
Mar 06, 2014
very impersonable was givin a tent site by the sewage station broke down picnic tables no grill and was told that is what we get for 25 dollars a night I would never stay here again also a hidden resort fee of 3.33 a day
Feb 27, 2014
Location is very convenient for access to waterways in region, with many local tiki bars and restaurants. Bathrooms could be kept leaner with daily cleanups, some days er missed and flooring muddy at times. Tent sites with nice lake view, however, street lights are a major annoyance for tenters.
Feb 24, 2014
Staff was nice, swimming pool is wonderful and many organized activities. Pine Island is awesome! The cabins could use a deep cleaning.
Feb 13, 2014
Basically, the stay was OK. The neighbors we had('permanent' residents' were very nice. The only thing that brought the whole thing down was the table at the site(and the ones nearby were not too short of falling apart. There was even a large(approx. 2-1/2 to 3 inch crack in the top and all the top boards were warped s the top was not level. The rate was at least $5 too high.
Feb 12, 2014
I had my stolen a few weeks before I went camping.I had to tent it or not go, I decided to tent it. I was accepted VERY poorly from the other campers for being in a tent. I was also treated very poorly by a women behing the reservation desk. Very snotty, will I go back? No I will replace my diesel pusher and treat the tent people as one.
Jan 15, 2014
The bathrooms were dirty. The staff VERY unfriendly. We were bitten by the no see ums so badly that we had to check out a day early without a refund! We will never stay at another KOA! When I informed the office of the situation they were very unconcerned with our discomfort. I am very disappointed after having so many good experiences at other KOA's.

We spent 7 nights during New Years in a tent site next to 1 of the 3 ponds. The camp ground in beautiful, restrooms are clean, service was great, close to magnificent beaches, great location for kayaking, biking, hiking & just resting. I will definitely be back. Thank you! Joanna & Rita Atlanta, GA

Super clean, quiet, and safe. Staff not very friendly. Mostly older community who is not very friendly to outsiders either. Everything closes up early!!!(Pool and club house) Beach is an HOUR AWAY):
Dec 29, 2013
quiet, clean, and many things to do, will stay there if in the area again and will recommend
Dec 29, 2013
Could only wish for more shade and site privacy. Clean bath facilities, grounds, pool and hot tub. Staff very friendly and responsive.

Restrooms were clean and bright. There was a nice community center for viewing videos, playing games.

Arrived on motorcycle and tented three nights ( one in the rain). Had a GREAT time and saw local attractions. No-see-ums were only complaint and staff did warn us. Great people running camp and reasonable prices, clean, well maintained, etc.

You need to update your Campground map.

A little far from what we wanted to see...but great people and great place...
Jul 09, 2013
Absolutely awful! Campground was empty and they still put us in a flooded site! Not to mention they didn't tell us there was an additional registration fee! I know you have bugs when camping but the site was flooded with bees! Will NOT be coming back!
