Phase One Reopen Florida

As you may have heard, Governor DeSantis of Florida has announced the start date of Phase One in the plan to reopen Florida. While masks are recommended, they are not required. Social distancing restrictions and minimization of social gatherings will be in effect.


At our KOA, we are happy to welcome both RV, tent, and cabin guests starting May 1 and until further notice. Please note that there will be some restrictions and closures at our KOA during the disaster declaration period.  Some of these are listed below, but KOA reserves the right to make changes as needed to protect the safety and health of our campers and our staff.  If you are unable or unwilling to abide by the restrictions and closures, we will be happy to reschedule your visit for a future date.


During this time, and especially since face masks are not required, special precautions are necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  While closures and precautions are in effect, disinfection of every surface cannot be guaranteed.


Certain areas of our park will be CLOSED until further notice including the Convention Center, Library, Game Room, the satellite bathhouse & laundry #1 and #3, the hot tub, and other areas as needed. Special cabin cleaning and disinfecting procedures will be instituted until further notice. Cabin guests may notice a difference in the amount and types of dishes in the cabins.  This is for your protection and we also ask that, as an additional precautionary step, you please wash your dishes both before and after use.   Our housekeepers will not enter your cabin during your stay for any reason.  Should you need new towels or linens, call the office and we will leave the items on your porch in a plastic bag.


In response to COVID-19 and aimed at protecting the health and safety of our guests and staff, KOA has instituted several restrictions which are listed below.
