Orlando SW / Fort Summit KOA

2525 Frontage Road
Davenport, FL 33837

With our KOA savings card, we paid $65.93 per night for a FHU pull-thru, including cable and WiFi. Our Verizon phone coverage was excellent as well as our MiFi use. The price was exuberant which we try to avoid as often as possible but there are certain areas that just get away with charging as much as possible. As far as worth the price, in our opinion NO RV Park or campground is worth that much.

Roads were paved but the sites were sand, gravel and grass but were level. The pool was heated and very well maintained, the area was big, and not too crowded at the time we were there since it was winter. They had miniature golf, horseshoes, a nice playground and a game room to keep the kids busy.

The store had all the conveniences you may need, they even serve some meals and it all had a really nice feel to it. They also offered dumping service and propane. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the activities in the area.

The laundry facilities were small for such a large park and the restrooms were kept sparkly clean even though we did not use either of them.

Even though the cost absolutely does not justify it and our next visit to the area, we will find other accommodations, we would recommend this park to others because of it‘s high quality of maintenance.

Pet Policy - Pets permitted at management’s discretion. One pet per site unless approved by management. Pets are not permitted to be tied outside RV. Pets must be walked on leash in designated areas only. Barking dogs will not be tolerated. No exotic pets. Pets are not permitted in cabins.

Funny thing about the pet policy…as we were leaving on our shuttle the first morning, a couple received a phone call that their pet that they tied up outdoors to the water faucet had torn it out of the ground. During this conversation, we could only hear his side but he was telling the person on the other line to just tie the pet to his bumper and they would be back later in the day to take care of all expenses. We were appalled until they finally asked the driver to turn around (we were only one block away) so they could take care of their pet problem. This should have been taken care of prior to us even leaving the area since the call came in minutes before we left. He even had the audacity to ask if the shuttle could drive him to their site, thank goodness the driver did not oblige this request.

What a great site you have! We really needed info about this KOA, as we've put in an application to camp host there. We love your descriptive style of writing. Please keep it up. Thanks, Bob & Eileen White
