The area is beautiful and the campground isn't too bad.Very tight spots and no kids activities at all. Very poor playground, hardly a basketball goal at all. Pool is nice and staff was very nice. We will stay again mainly for the convenience to beaches with a decent price.

It is obvious that this place is doing a lot of work to make it a better place, but for right now only the upper half is nice and the lower half is a dump. We stayed in the lower half, Tall grass, dog poop all over, un-level lots. Not a good stay. I would not recommend for now.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. Yes we have made many improvements and some are still in process. We hope to see you soon.

Wonderful clean picturesque camping grounds. Too bad it rained for most of our stay but they have a beautiful pool and a short walking distance to a small beach & pier. Staff extremely friendly and courteous.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much! So sorry it rained, although there are some pretty great rainy day things to do around here. :) We hope during your next stay you can hit the beach more.

The staff was very friendly. It would be nice if the camp store had longer hours and the change machine was located in the laundry instead of the store. Fire rings in each site would be nice as well. Thanks for a very relaxing week

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feed back! Glad you had a chance to relax. So very sorry you had to deal with someone not so friendly. We hope to have the chance to show you some real southern hospitality.

Staff was friendly and very accomodating. Facilities were clean and the many amenities were far above average. Having to take trash and garbage to the dumpster near the front entrance of the park was inconvenient. Placing 55 gallon trash barrels at convenient locations throughtout the park would have improved this situation.

The whole reason we stayed at this koa was the selling point of being on the gulf shore with a beach. Two feet of sand doesn't make a beach. It was close to real beach that was great. The site we were on was super, but the pool needed some care and was closed the last day we were there. No reason why, just a sign that said pool closed. I will not return to this KOA.

Why is the dumpster unloaded at 5:45 am during quiet time? Not good for sleeping guests.

Friendly staff. Good location. Small spots. Difficult to maneuver tow vehicle out of spot after unhooking.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We are glad you liked us. We would like to invite you back. We have added more super sites that are great for big rigs towing.

the campsite was really bad. the grass was not cut, camping area was too close to each slot, was told they were close to gulf shores, but it was out in the middle of nowhere. the beach area was very small. maybe three feet of beach area and it smelled like dead fish. the showers and bathrooms were nasty and molded. water was standing in the showers. it was the worst place we have ever sta

The restroom and shower facilities were horrible and dirty. The entrance is difficult to negotiate (RV drags on pavement) Camp generally in rough shape.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. We are working on updates with bathrooms. If needed, you may enter through our other drive, we know the hill can be trying. We hope to see you soon.

All time worst KOA experience ever. Web site/pictures misleading.So looking forward to a great "new" adventure at the gulf...water at fishing pier was brown. Pool was only family entertainment: sadly there was open alcohol almost everywhere. No trash pick up/ however an overflowing dumpster(swarming w/ flies) was located in campground(close to sites. Wi-fi available on store porch/ not sites.

Bathrooms small hot and unkempt.

Worst campground I have stayed in. We paid almost 70$ per night because we had a large crew, be prepared for 5$ per person per night over two adults this includes children over the age of 5. Bathrooms small and dirty. RV sites barely large enough for the awning.
Jul 08, 2013
Camper would not fit on site, no room for boat. ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS, melted camper plug..they replaced breaker. 110 plug didn't work, they replaced other breaker, still would not work. At this point, complaints WERE IGNORED. Could not change sites, none available. We paid full amount in advance, a refund WAS NOT ALLOWED! Water standing in Men's RR,UNSANITARY!! IN NEED OF MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS!!!!!

The grounds were clean and even though it rained the pool was clean and loved the hot tub. No swings for older children but did have basketball and horseshoes. Kids loved it and we didn't have a lot of "noise" from road traffic, dogs nor anything. Near the National Naval Aviation Museum, children's museum, Lighthouse, and other places within 20 minutes.

Wonderful! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We are adding something new to our playground that the kids will love! See you soon.

Love the set up and the ease of pulling in my RV. I have a long set up and it isn't easy in some parks but this one was great. We had poor TV cable reception but everything else was grade A

When we arrived and went to check in we were told that the power was being worked on and it would be an hour before we had power--it turned out to be nearly 2 and half hours. The ladies restroom facilities need updating some--I noticed mold on the ceiling above all the showers and the shower curtains need to be wider. All in all it was an okay place.

The sites need to be leveled. And the septic dumps need yo be in a different spot. Instead of right outside your front door. Limbs on trees need trimming as well. Other than that its nice. Staff was friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feed back! We are glad you liked us! We are in the process of leveling sites in need. We hope to see you soon.

I found this to be a very pet-kid-family friendly place to stay. It was clean and had all the things you could ever wish for in a family vacation. We only stayed one night but wish we had spent the entire trip here!

I was very disappointed in the campsite I was assigned. I was told we could relocate once we got there if we wanted another site. I asked to moved and was told it wasn't recommended. After setting up, we had electrical problems with the campsite. These problems lasted throughout out stay. The bathroom/showers had no air the first part of our stay. The staff was extremely nice and helpful.
Jul 04, 2013
Terrible campground. Dirty, and not well taken care of. Will never stay there again.
Jul 02, 2013
NICE STAY BUT THE KNATS WERE UNBEARABLE. NO OUTSIDE ACTIVITES AT ALL AT ANYTIME. NOT THERE FALT BUT A LITTLE HEADS UP WOULD HELP ALOT.
Jul 02, 2013
Really great staff. Pool is fantastic. Toilets/shower rooms need some attention.
Jul 02, 2013
We were pre-booked for a weeks stay. We have a 40' Motor Coach. The site was too small, that put is in another site and then told use that we would have to leave after July 3. Will never stay again. The entire Park is too small, roads & sites. Trash dumpster was full & smelled terrible. Grass needed cutting. The entire park isn't for Motor Coaches!

One of the best in our many, many years of RV'ng. Reserved a stay in Winter!

We experienced electrical problems throughout our stay with the camp outlet. The water supply smelled terribly. The sites were uneven and hook ups inconveniently located. The place was not up to KOA standards. Unkept, unmowed... staff was nice enough, but weren't able to answer basic questions about using KOA rewards. We are KOA campers, but this place makes us skeptical of future KOA stays.
Jun 27, 2013
Campground was adequate. Mostly due to construction around pool. Pool was not monitored by staff and full timers and regulars were allowed to bring glass alcohol containers into pool area. There was kids unaccompanied by an adult. Kids ran rampant unsupervised. I had my 3 grand kids with us that we supervised around the park, pool and beach. Beach was terrible. Too much silt and muck.

Nice facility, quiet and clean.
Jun 24, 2013
Sites where we camped were too close together. When we got there, it was the middle of the afternoon & the electricity wasn't working on the whole row of sites. We went to town & when we came back, it was fixed. The 2nd night we were there, there was 1 tent right in front of us & when we woke up the next morning, there were about 5 on that one site. Site was not level.
