Nice lake location and easy to find. The sites are spacious, but the roads are too tight and unpaved (gravel with lots of dust).

The staff took care of all my wants and needs. The park is laid out very nice and landscaped and maintained well. I was very pleased with the cabin arrangements. We have done every aspect of camping from tent, pop up, trailer, motor home and now cabin camping. We trust the KOA team and at Lake Whippoorwill you have earned your badges proudly. Thank you!

Dirty dusty loud construction zone. Fast driving staff in carts. And that whole Christian thing is a rouse. Just stay on your side of the park. Will not go back.

We were 4 adults in a cabin. Def. very small for us as it is a tiny cabin with not enough space to stretch your arms. Location wise its great and beautiful. Kitchen is ok. Cabin bedroom was "extremely" hot/boiling during the day, thank god we were out. Found lizard feces in bathroom and bedroom. Very very small cabin, hardly any space to walk. Would not return.

One of our favorite KOA's! Employees and fellow campers very pleasant and helpful Beautiful views and stunning landscapes. really enjoyed the bike path that winds around the whole site, along the lakefront, and past a gorgeous pavilion right on the lake. nothing could have made our anniversary more special!

We got a tent site and they put us directly in the sun no shade while other tenters got shaded areas by the canal and lake. They said it was full but we saw many tents sites unoccupied the whole time we were there. When we asked about a different spot the ladies were just trying to refund us but they were not very nice!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We did give you the best available site we had, at the time your made your reservation, just hours before arriving on a holiday weekend. The other sites mentioned already had reservations and the guests had not arrived yet.

Great stay. The staff is attentive and friendly. Very clean sites, well stocked store, nice pool and playground.
May 23, 2014
sites are far too small and no privacy at all
May 23, 2014
excellent camp ground, and clean, Linda and Fred are great hosts.

Great site. Lake view lot was wonderful. Very clean and well cared for. Fred was really helpful and informative at the site getting us settled.

This is more like 'glamping'. It was sparkling clean, the cabins were perfect, tons of wildlife and everyone from guests to staff were very friendly. It was also very quiet! Love it. Already planning our return visit

We really enjoyed the stay here! Our campsite was was great with the grill, firepit, and water/electric. We also loved the privacy of the site! We were so worried we were going to be stuffed between some rv's. The landscape of the site was also beautifully arranged. Thank You!
May 14, 2014
Friendly, clean, well kept, easy to get into and out. Definitely a KOA to return to!
May 13, 2014
Was so quiet and the Lake is beautiful.
May 12, 2014
Very calm. Friendly staff. Small but has everything for a relaxing weekend.
May 12, 2014
When we got there we got some help but not like the help we got when we left Fred was excellent helping me get out since the next to us to the right looking at the lake he was impossible we needed to have him move the truck so we can get out he did not open his door, but Fred helps us out. I wish he would have been there when we got there since it took me 45 minutes to park with hardly any help.

Loved the campsite on the water. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Fred helped us pulling in and backing out of our site. The grounds were beautiful and clean, flowers everywhere. Will definitely return.

Unfortunately we booked a waterfront site only to find that construction was underway for the boat launch and shore project--kind of ruined the view and lots of noise. And, then there were problems with the power at our site and a number of other sites

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do apologize for the inconvenience. We did have an issue with a breaker for that area of the campground. Luckily our maintenance team was able to replace it. They worked as quickly as they were able.

Gravel roadways and lots of dust. No fire rings. A car wash area is a nice touch. Sites are level but some are very small. Roadway near dump site is too narrow, not enough room for large RVs to pass when one is using dump site. Need to trim bushes near dump site to make it more user friendly. Hose at dump site has holes in it and is hard to use without getting wet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for letting us know about the hole in the hose. We will get this replaced immediately.

Excellent campground. On of the best we have stayed in. The staff is ultra friendly and helpful. The landscaping is breathtaking! We are coming back.
May 08, 2014
Clean, convenient, and NOT way too expensive. Really nice shower setup.
May 08, 2014
Nice park. The staff is very friendly.

We enjoy the lake front location but was disappointed that we had a crane view, due to the updating of the dock. Maybe a discount should be given while this constuction is ongoing,as we did not view the lake front. We would like to say the staff was great! Loved the dog park and trails. Fred help us with a trailer hitch andfound out the names of trees we did not know. Great Job Fred!

Denise and her staff, continue to create & maintain an environment I can only characterize as that of a 'loving family". Make no mistake, behind the smiles & friendly banter, efficient attention to business details can be relied upon. The award winning [it should be rated!] landscaping is most welcoming, and the strains of travel begin to melt as we enter the approach road. Wally & Barb

Was in a dlx cabin. Construction work was going on so had no access to lake. Cable was out so they ran a cable wire from lot next door through window to the tv. It was draped across the kitchen floor.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do apologize for the inconvenience. Because of the construction on our shoreline, the cable was accidentally cut. This was a quick temporary fix to get the cable up and running until our maintenance team is able to get under the cabin to permanently fix the problem.

We were given the best tent spot on the property. Couldn't of asked for a better location. It was a stormy start to our vacation and the fact we were in a tent made things a little rough. But, the site had a recreation hall in which the kids could go inside a play. After the storm had past we were able to enjoy the rest of our stay comfortably.

Very quiet and very clean ☺

nicest cg we had on our trip!

We spent a week at this KOA and loved being on the lake. Getting my 5th wheel into the site was a bit tricky because of where the site was located. The staff was very helpful, the park was clean and there were no issue with the WIFI. My next trip to Orlando for work will be in July and I plan to stay here again.
May 02, 2014
The workers were friendly and helpful. Our dog enjoyed the Kamp K9 area. The laundry room was clean and convenient. The free cable and wifi were an added bonus, since we didn't realize KOA offered it. We would've enjoyed the lake area, if it wasn't under construction. Overall we had a great experience and look forward to visiting again.
May 01, 2014
Just a quick trip. We stayed in the Kamping Kabin and it was clean and comfy. We arrived after 5 and the overnight gentleman helped us with linen we had requested for the cabin. We left early in the A.M. to fly out so not much time was spent there. It is one of the nicest KOA I have ever seen and wish we had more time there. Would highly recommend.
Apr 29, 2014
Had a great time. Beautiful place. More fire rings would be my only suggestion and more space for vehicles as to not block the beautiful sunrise over the lake.
Apr 29, 2014
Love this place! Great people and Denise the Manager is very helpful. Beautiful location especially the lighting at night! Clean and safe.
Apr 29, 2014
What a great KOA to stay at. Will recommended to our friends. Fred was extremely helpful with a couple of questions we ask him about . Very knowledgeable of the park and the trails that go around the park. A real asset to your customers.
Apr 29, 2014
Very nice and clean!

Beautiful park with gorgeous landscaping enhanced by a large lake. We extended our stay by 2 days because we liked it so much here. Quiet but close to lots of the Orlando sights.
Apr 26, 2014
The location is good for visiting the various Orlando attractions. The camping is easy accessable, has a good and helpfull staff and well maintained sites and washrooms. The individual sites are rather small and request help to drive in with a camping trailer or a RV.
