We rented one of the waterfront cabins for only 75.00 a night in off season. Upon arriving they were extremely helpful and offered a plethora of helpful information. Our cabin was very clean and solid . There were plenty of towels and blankets as well as kitchen utensils. There were 2 separate air/heating units that worked great by remote control. We enjoyed bird and dolphin watching from the deck with plenty of chairs and tables. The grill was clean and is charcoal lite. The pool was spotless and the hot tub clean and great. The common/club room very large and comfortable with lots of travelers brochures, big tv and games. The renovated water tower is fun and it's all freshly painted in nautical blue and white. The restaurant on pier 19 terrific and fair priced and the mates on the osprey fishing trips show you a good time and lots of fish. We will be back!

Just love this place. The people are friendly and the place is great. We come here often and could not be happier with the pool or hot tub. If your looking for a great place to eat and bar just go to the pier and order up some fresh seafood. It has a beautiful view of the bay.

Room Tip: If you have an extra long rv make sure you tell the staff so they place you correctly.

This was a good place to stay with kids, it has nice swimming pool and hot tub. It also has a recreation room named "commons" with table tennis table, couches, TV etc.
We stayed in our RV's and the patio area was nice.
There were a lot of mosquitoes there so be prepared.

The only downside was the unfriendly staff, other than that everything was excellent.

We are big fans of KOA's when we are traveling. This was the worst one we have ever stayed in. The staff didn't seem to have a clue when it came to assigning us a site. Gave us one that was way to short for our 5th wheel. We told them no so they told us we had a choice between 2 different sites. Neither one was what we had reserved & both were more expensive. After a 1/2 hour of getting our rig to fit into another small site we were finally set up. View was nice but not sure it was worth the extra expense. We stayed 8 nights & half of those we had a travel trailer so close we couldn't extend our awning all the way. The "wi-fi" SUCKED! Most of the time, if you could get on, you were knocked off before you could do anything. And we were not far from the main building. I guess ours was not as good of an experience as all the other people who have raved about it. I will not stay here again.

We stayed in Condo B with a kitchenette. Although it is not very useful with out a stove it is adequate for our stay since no one wanted to cook anyway. We really enjoyed the setup and location. The condo is inside a water tank. We would stay here again.

From the moment we got here, nothing was what they said. There was not a kitchen in the studio, it was small and they were rude even if I questioned them. If you ask for trash bags or towels they ask you why! Really? The floors were filthy, no soap or shampoo and black mold in the air conditioner vents. I will never come back here again. Seems like it is run by a bunch of retired folks who do what they have to do to make a buck. Beware of this place

This RV resort has it all. It is on the water, has a clean pool, amazing restroom facilities, a large common area with a flat screen TV and several couches and sitting areas for large families or groups, a workout room, nice store and Pier 19 right on the property for food and drinks. Lots of great palm trees on site. We walked the site at night each night we were there. There is also a deck area for relaxing that overlooks the bay. The sites are big and level. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Garbage is picked up each night behind your rig. No searching for the garbage bins. Very nice.
