Wildwood RV Village (formerly Wildwood KOA), Wildwood, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

My previous stop was at the Gainesville KOA, so I expected something similar. That's definitely not what I got. I didn't realize that RVs could be packed so close together outside an RV Dealership lot... Add the 24/7 noise of the HESS truckstop just beyond the KOA fenceline, and chainsaw + chipper/shredder noise from 7a-5p as they cut down the few remaining trees serving as a sound block for the Truckstop... This was an entirely unpleasant experience. It was $30+/night for an experience that was "Boondocking at the truckstop" with shore power... Boo.

The Wildwood KOA is an embarrassment to the KOA name. We camped at Wildwood RV Village (formerly Wildwood KOA) in a Motorhome.

Camp Venice Retreat, Venice, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2015 - $68.00
Overall Rating:

It's a Retreat, not a Resort. If you're comfortable boondocking, you won't give the entry road a second thought. (Keep to the middle of the road - there are some thick low hanging branches on the right side.) If you are a person who isn't happy without a paved road and a concrete pad, I'd recommend moving on down the road. Once you're in, the grounds are *amazing*. Tons of old growth, nature trails along the Myakka river, it's quite lovely - though it borders on being *outrageously* expensive. (Worth it to me, because it was the last place that had room for the weekend...) We camped at Camp Venice Retreat in a Motorhome.
