Alligator Safety

If you live in Florida or have spent time here, then you probably have already seen an alligator or two, though most likely at a zoo or park and from the safety of a fence. While you are far less likely to encounter an alligator in the wild, it is always good to be prepared, just in case. There are alligators present in the waters around the campground. Please see our recommended Do's & Don't list at the front desk or one of many posters around the campground.

Meet Your Hosts

Lori Hight

Have you checked out the St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA lately? We've just opened our second hot tub, a lovely private area just for adults!

Lori Hight, manager of the St Petersburg/Madeira Beach KOA, has the perfect outlook to make your stay memorable. She says, “I love helping people!”

Lori has been involved in all phases of the camping experience. In her 15 years at Camping World, she helped campers with everything from sleeping bags and checkers games to awnings and hot water heaters.

Now at the St Petersburg/Madeira Beach KOA, she is able to take that experience a step farther and be involved with her campers right at ground level. “Being one-on-one with my campers and making great memories together is my number one goal.”

Lori and her husband have 3 children, and guess what they do for fun? They are right back in the great outdoors! They all love camping, fishing, kayaking and going to the beach.

“I am really excited to meet all of the wonderful people at St Petersburg/Madeira Beach KOA! Come visit me, and let's have a G-R-E-A-T time!”
