We stayed here over a holiday weekend. Had a great time. Plenty to do with the river and organized activities. Kids had a blast. Sites were spacious. Plenty of trees. Pool and bath facilities were clean. Many seasonals, but people were all friendly. There were no pull-through sites available which can be a challenge here for big rigs. We did not use Wi-Fi. Campground is tucked away in the countryside but is not hard to get to. The only difficulty we had was leveling our RV. All sites around us were very unlevel. Even with manual jacks, it was impossible. Our site was located in the back and away from the river on hilly ground. It appeared to me that the sites near the river did not have this problem. Either way, our family enjoyed this campground and will definitely return again. We would try for a site closer to the river next time to avoid the unlevel ground.

Stayed here one night passing through the area. The owners were terrific. There does not appear to be much to do, but the ease of access from the interstate makes it ideal for an overnight stay. Sites are fairly level and all gravel. Mostly pull-though sites. Easy in and out. We did not use the facilities or the Wi-Fi. We will stay again if passing through the area.

Point Mallard appears to be part of a huge recreational complex. We were in the area visiting relatives and stayed here for one night. The campground is large and was very crowded. Many, many children. A very family friendly atmosphere, but kids were running wild throughout the night and were difficult to see while driving through the crowded park. Most sites, including 'overflow' sites, were filled. Fortunately, we had reservations. The sites were all gravel. Weaving around the campground in a bigger RV with a tow, would be a challenge. I did not think the sites were very spacious. We would have had trouble with our awning because of neighboring campsites and/or trees. We were given several choices to pick from when we arrived. None of the sites appeared to be accommodating. The management was extremely reasonable and found us an unoccupied seasonal site that they let us stay in for the night. The management was the best attribute of the campground. The bathhouses were very dirty. Many bugs and even animals were residing in the facility closest to us. There are many trees, and sites were level and gravel. There is no grass. We did not use the Wi-Fi. We did not take advantage of the nearby activities. If we were in the area again, I would probably stay to explore some of the adjacent activities, but I would stay with low expectations and avoid using the bathrooms.

Stayed here over spring break. LOVED IT!. Pricey campground but well worth it. Not only is the beach beautiful, but the facilities and pools were wonderful. Staff was great. Led us to our site and helped us in. The campground was crowded, but I was amazed that the facilities were as clean as they were, given the high volume and use. There were activities for kids and adults alike. We took advantage of these extras because weather did not cooperate for the week we were there. My only concern would be the Wi-Fi. We were kicked off constantly and could not remain connected for longer than one minute. We will definitely return, but would not plan on a 'beach front' site. This is a high traffic area. Although the beach is pristine and the sunsets are spectacular, the entire campground walks by your RV to access the beach. We plan to return again.

Average campground. Nice friendly staff. Helped us to our site and accommodated our group (we came here for a 3 family outing). Hook-ups and sites were nice and spacious. Sites that we were at were padded and level (not all are). There were many permanents. Shower and restroom facilities were immaculate. There were some nice nature trails for biking and the lake was nice. My issues with the campground was in the upkeep. The grass at all the sites appeared as though it hadn't been cut in months. Combined with rain and standing water around our sites, everything remained soaked for the entire weekend we stayed. There was garbage and dirty underwear in our site's spigot well. Our neighbors also had trash left at their site. The dumpsters smelled and were all overflowing. This was extremely disappointing. The rec hall was old and very moldy. The game room had one game that worked. Some of these things are acceptable, but for a discounted $45 nightly rate, I expected better. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a motorhome.

Has the potential for a '10'. Price reflects KOA discount. We stayed for one night while passing through the area. Large campground with nice wooded sites. The pool looked clean but we did not use it. The facilities were clean, but seemed older. Since we stayed for one night we chose a W/E site only and that seemed to be a mistake. The site was very close to the interstate and traffic was loud and easily audible. It is a hilly campground and the site we were given was not level at all. All this being said, the service was great. Warm cookies on arrival and pizza delivered to the site is outstanding! We would stay again, but would request a full hook-up site near the back of the campground. Navigating the campground in a 34 footer with a tow was challenging, but can be done. We would stay again if in the area.

Nice campground. Not hard to get to. Follow signs for Hollywood casino. Not terribly far off the interstate. Sites are spacious with lots of grass. Showers and bathrooms are small, but very clean. Only one bath facility at campground and if your site is in the back, it can be quite a walk. Check-in was easy. Sites are level and padded. Free breakfast at hotel which is a short walk away. Campground is ideal for a weekend at the casino if you're a gambler. Shuttle will pick you up at your site and take you the short 2 blocks to the front door if you don't feel up for the walk. My thoughts when booking this campground were that it would be busy, loud and a city like setting, but I couldn't be more wrong. It is quiet and tucked away behind the Hollywood casino facilities. Two reasons its not a "10" in my opinion are the lack of sewer hook-up and the rule against fire pits. There is a dump station conveniently placed behind the hotel as you depart. We would stay again.

This campground is close to Busch Gardens. I thought that our site was quiet and large enough to accommodate a big rig. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Initially, we were given a pull-through next to 4 dumpsters but we were easily relocated at our request. Overall, the campground is older. Facilities were clean but worn down and some in need of repair. Most of the sites seemed to be permanents with many snow birds occupying them. All our neighbors were friendly, even with our noisy kids. Despite my complaints I would definitely stay here again. I loved the Spanish moss and the trees. Plenty of room for my kids to safely ride bikes and play. A couple of scenic ponds. We will return when we come back to Busch Gardens.

Rate reflects KOA discount and 4 children. This KOA is extremely clean and well-located to Orlando attractions. Sites are level and a late check-in was easy. Bathrooms are well maintained. Showers are separate and clean despite high usage. There are two reasons that I did not give it a '10'. First, despite what I consider relatively high rates, wifi is an extra charge. Needless to say, we did not use the wifi so I cannot comment on it. Secondly, on check-out, we felt rushed out. The camper pulling in to our site arrived early and was allowed to back-up into our site while we were still sleeping! Not terribly bothersome but it felt intrusive. There is plenty of room for kids to ride bikes and enjoy the outdoors. It was a good alternative to Fort Wilderness, but certainly not equivalent. We would stay again.

Price reflects KOA discount and 4 children. We stayed here passing through the area. Campground is fairly easy to access from interstate. We checked in late and that process was easy. Because it was a quick stay, we did not use wifi or the facilities. Externally, however, the facilities looked worn. Campground was old and in need of updating. Interstate traffic can easily be heard and was surprisingly loud. Sites are very uneven but this was not and issue for us. It did not appear that there was much for the kids to do although we did not stick around long enough to find out. Overall, this seemed like a campground OK for a quick over night stay.

Nice campground. Friendly staff and clean facilities. We stayed here while passing through the area. Campground is well maintained. We were led to our site and had little difficulty maneuvering a big rig with tow. Wi-Fi is excellent. We would stay here again.

Stayed here while we visited Hershey. Difficult for us to find but staff guided us via phone while we approached the area. Reservations are needed as the campground fills fast. We initially had difficulty getting reservations but after calling back all of a sudden they had a spot for us. This was a month in advance and a little confusing to me. Check-in was easy. maneuvering around the campsite in a big rig with tow can be difficult. Roads are narrow and at peak season traffic and campers are often impeding the roads. The campground itself was OK. Pool and facilities are fairly clean. It is a high volume campsite so maintaining the facilities is difficult. The noise from the train was audible to us but not bothersome. Our site was farthest from the tracks however. One great service is the shuttle to the Hershey attractions. Tickets can also be purchased in advance. I recommend utilizing both of these services. We would stay here again, but would avoid peak seasons due to the crowds at the attractions and campground.

Stayed here passing through on I-70. Very expensive but nice KOA. Sites were clean. Facilities were also clean. Sites were level. Wi-Fi was good. Would probably stay here again if the price was a little better. Many things to do for kids. More of a destination campground and not really an overnight.

Stopped through while driving south on I-65. Stayed one night. Campground was neat and family friendly. Rate is a little high but not surprising being a Jellystone. Had no problems with our site. We would stay here again.

Came down here for spring break. Definite destination campground. We loved it. Easy to get too and right on the ocean. Staff was friendly and check-in was easy. The campground was crowded. Our site was on a concrete pad and level. Sites were small but I did not feel cramped in it. No fire rings at our site. Campground is enormous so golf carts are helpful and almost necessary. Many permanent residents here. Plenty of activities for the kids to do. Showers and bathrooms needed a little attention but they were high usage facilities so I did not expect them to be immaculate. W-Fi was OK, but due to the number of users I expected it to be slow as well. We will come back again. Really enjoyed being right on the ocean.

We stayed here passing through on I-75. Easy access to the interstate. There is some interstate noise but it was not bothersome to us. We arrived late and staff was accommodating giving us an easy site to get too. Easy to maneuver in park with a tow. Sites were level and we did not have to unhook. Facilities were clean. Did not use Wi-Fi. Overall it was a nice campground and we would stay again if passing through the area.

Stayed here as we were passing through. Not far off interstate which was nice. We were a late arrival and requested pull-through site ahead of time, but unfortunately they have very few pull through sites and we ended up with a back-in. There are many trees and maneuvering could be difficult if driving a big RV with a tow. All gravel sites. Did not see staff or use facilities. Many trees and well shaded so I'm not sure how the wifi would be. Overall, we were somewhat disappointed with the site we were given and it made for a difficult early morning backing in between trees. It would have been nice to get the pull-through we reserved. Campground in my opinion is OK for over-nite stay. We would probably not stay here again.

Stayed over nite while passing through area. Front desk was very accommodating. Gave us a site close to entrance (they knew we would be a late arrival). Reasonably priced. Close to interstate and traffic noise can be heard. There are train tracks nearby and that can be heard as well. The noise however was not terribly bothersome to us. Easy to maneuver around campground in RV while towing. Campground is clean and well kept. There does not appear to be playground or pool. We did not use the facilities as we were just passing through. Wifi is excellent. For us this was an ideal campground for quick over nite stay.
