Disney, as usual, does things right. "Comfort stations" are clean and well maintained. I wouldn't call the sites huge, but they are nicely wooded and felt fairly private despite somewhat close proximity to neighboring sites. The lane through the campgrounds is narrow, though, and I struggled a little bit with getting the camper just where I wanted it because of limited room while backing. I'm still not sure how some of those big buses got in and out of their sites without hitting a tree or site post. Our site was dead-level and paved with asphalt surrounded by crushed shells that felt like sand (but tended to track into the camper). There was plenty of water pressure and good sewer hook-ups. For $60 a night, I would hope for free Wi-Fi, but it's $10 extra for 24 hours, and you pretty much have to be at the Trading Post to use it. Free transportation to Disney properties can be a little like playing Chinese checkers by the time you hop-skip-and-jump from a campground shuttle bus to a ferry boat to the monorail, etc. But late one night at a campground shuttle stop, we saw a family who obviously didn't speak English and had somehow wound up far from where they were supposed to be. The bus driver patiently explained the three or four steps they would need to take to get home, and they seemed to understand. A few minutes later, though, a white Disney minivan pulled up and offered to take the family directly home. Obviously the bus driver was concerned they wouldn't get there and called for help. First class operation! If you're going to do Disney, this is a great way to do it: You get all the guest privileges of guests who stay at the fancy Disney hotels, such as early/late access to theme parks on certain days, and you don't have to pay restaurant prices for every meal when you eat in the camper.

This is a very nice family-run campground. The pool, baths, and showers are clean and well-maintained. Although the interstate highway is visible from the campground, traffic noise was not a problem. There are a number of "long-term" sites along the western edge of the campground, and all of the units there seemed well maintained. Hook-ups were fast and easy. Sites are roomy for a commercial campground, and there are a couple of nice "gliders" with tables for rocking. The lady (presumably owner) who checked us in was very friendly--I'd forgotten my Good Sam card in the camper and offered to go dig it out, but she just gave me the rate without making me find my card. The office/store seemed well-stocked, although I didn't browse.

We spent three nights here: One quick overnight on the way to Orlando and two on the way back. First night, we got in shortly after the office closed so we went right to our site. A grumpy old man (presumably one of the owners) came by after we had set up and accused us of misrepresenting the size of our rig and that we were too small for the "premium" site they had assigned us. The campground was half empty, so I'm not sure what the big deal was, but he let us stay there since were only going to be overnight. Our second stay went smoother, and I never had to deal with "Grumpy" again. His wife was much nicer. The sites aren't huge, but comfortable for our size rig. Nice pool (we didn't swim), IMMACULATE showers and bathrooms in a nearly new store/office building. They also have laundry facilities. Wi-Fi worked great, and it's free. Highway noise from I-75, which can be seen literally yards away through the trees surrounding the campground, was constant. We were tired enough from our travels it didn't keep us from sleeping, but light sleepers beware!
