This park is one of the best in the country. The park is undergoing Big Rig updates. Most of the sites are paved and the wooded area cleaned up. The biggest selling point about the park is, if you are going to Disney World, they provide transportation to all the hot spots.(just a short walk to buses or boats) We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

I know, it's Disney, but this is the best campground around. The bathhouses are top of the line with Corian sinks and showers, the lots are big and level and the services are typically Disney. When you go, spend the money and rent a golf cart if you didn't bring your bikes. The cart is great for getting to the movies at night, driving to the lake for boat transportation to the parks or simply driving around the grounds. Disney knows how to do it, there is nothing bad about this place. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is the top of the heap as far as places to go with your kids. There is so much for them to do, you almost wish they had an adults only area that you could run away to while they were busy. The outdoor movies at night and campfires made it such a special treat for them. The only drawback is that this place is almost always booked way far in advance. Especially on the weekends. Since we are locals, we can call on a Friday morning and see if they have cancellations, but even then it is difficult to get a spot. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

The RV park is excellent, but costly. We have stayed in this resort many times because of the convenience to Disney World Parks, especially when we bring our grandchildren. The sites are all paved now and enlarged. The only reason we did not rate this RV park a "10" is because of the cost. We will stay here again because their are only a couple of nice RV parks with-in twenty miles of Disney We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

We drove 16 hours to get here and it was well worth the drive. I have been to Disney a number of times and this is the first time I have stayed in the RV park. We normally stay in the resorts. I thoroughlly enjoyed my week here. There is just too much to do, even if you never make it to the theme parks. Very kid friendly. We used the transportation in the park to get around instead of the golf carts. They can be rented but they are a little pricy for my taste. All in all, a perfect trip. When I return to Disney, as I do every couple of years, I have found my new favorite Resort to stay at. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have enjoyed this park since 1972. It now appears Disney has lowered it's standards concerning children operating golf carts, campers cutting through sites and those using gasoline powered 4x4 atv machines. One atv began doing "doughnuts" around his site after a heaving rain. Disney approached him but he denied doing it and continued to drive it for 2 more days. Several loops have been cleared making the urge for campers to cut through sites more appealing. Some, too lazy to walk to the loop exits, simply walked past those having meals or simplying enjoying the outside. One child, about 6 years old, was driving his parents gasoline powered golf cart all day, simply ignored by security. Still, the most pleasant, cleanest and most expensive park in the USA. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved this campground! When we come back to Disney this is definitely where we will stay again! I pretty much agree with all the positives stated in the previous comments, clean, outstanding customer service, excellent amenities, tons of fun activities. We stayed in the 1700 loop which was perfect! The only frustration we had was waiting for transportation at times. Vehicles do come with free parking to all the theme parks if you would rather use your own car. We chose not to pay the $50 per day fee for a golf cart because we used our bikes. Big piece of advice: plan and book in advance for everything (dinner theaters, entertainment, special amenities for your site, golf cart, etc.). We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I had not been here in many years. It is one of the great RV parks in America. I do think it is showing its age. The site we were in (603) was wonderful. Very level paved site and a nice creek to the rear. Not a far walk to the bike barn to rent bikes and golf carts and the pool was nearby too. Had a full hook up site and since my grandson was coming up graded to a premium site. Was very easy to get to all the parks and everyone was very helpful. The only complaint one might have is that the showers are not as plentiful as one might like. I would suggest bring a bike or renting a golf cart. It is at least a mile from one end to the other. Place was Disney clean! I know that the price can get high, but you are well located and there are more things to do than you will have time to do them! Wish they would sell time shares in the sites as part of the Disney Vacation club! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is a great experience. It is well designed and maintained. The golf cart rentals are very convenient and a great way to get around. The transportation system (bus and boat) to the various parks are easy to access. The Trails End restaurant serves a buffet breakfast and dinner which is reasonable and does not require reservations. The only negative to the whole Disney World experience is the need to make reservations at every sit down restaurant in every park. Make sure you do reservations IN ADVANCE of the day you want to eat there. Same day reservation efforts failed every time I tried. I would return to this park without hesitation. I would not return in the summer. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our first visit. Two areas of concern. One, the camp site itself. We asked for full hookups when making our reservation. Upon arrival to the 1700 loop area we were told that we did not have cable because we did not ask for "A Premium site." ALL other campgrounds we have stayed at, full meant full. I also had asked for no shade so our roof mounted satellite would work, well, we got a shaded site with no cable. When asked to move, they said all were reserved. For unknown reasons, the pads are only HALF paved. The other half is Kokeana shell, the worst for tracking into your unit. The sewer hookup was in a small stainless steal type bowl. The sides were too high so you could not screw it in nor use a donut. Had to use heavy limb to hold it down. Our power never rose above 110 volts. Several times we noticed it stayed around 108 & 109 volts. VERY POOR for Disney. The spaces are very tight and separated by some brush. Yes, rent a $50 a day golf cart or ride your bike. Reservations are suggested on almost anything you may want to do. I was ready for the high prices but not being able to swim at the beautiful white sandy beach was not one of them. The pools were very over crowded and not properly chlorinated. The day after checking in we rode around the entire campground. Saw no less than 28 "premium" campsites available, oh well. After all being said, been there done that and won't be back! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a great campground. The best one my family has ever been too. It is the cheapest way to stay at a Disney Resort and get all the resort privileges. However, we came from New Jersey so we figured out we saved about $600 by driving. I think spending the extra $600 would have been worth it to fly. But the overall experience was wonderful. I definitely will come back. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

This resort is really nice. It is the nicest campground that we have ever stayed in by far, but it also costs the most. All sites are paved and clean, and the bath houses are immaculate. Even though it costs more than the average campground, it is still the cheapest way to stay on Disney Property. We go several times a year, but I recommend Christmas. Our family loves the Campfire Program, and it is actually free of charge. There is also tight security, so not just anyone can roll through the campground. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Why can't all campgrounds be this nice? My only suggestion would be for Disney to improve the swimming pools by adding water slides and a lazy river. Very enjoyable stay! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first time at Fort Wilderness and I can't say enough positive things about this campground. The sites are tight but separated with trees. A park employee helped us park and then went across the street and helped someone else. Very Nice. We were in the 800 loop which I recommend for being close to pool, marina and food. Plan ahead and rent a golf cart - there is a charge, we paid about $300 for our entire trip, but it's well worth it and part of the fun. The bathrooms are very clean and nice. One bathhouse per loop with ice machine, phone and laundry facilities. Laundry had 4 washers and 8 dryers. Well stocked store for campers needs as far as food goes, but it's a resort so you will pay higher prices. Lots of rabbits, ducks, armadillos. Horses riding on site for a fee. This is a great campground even if you aren't doing the Disney parks. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This was our 4th visit to Fort Wilderness. We have always received the camping loop that we request. There is so much to do in the campground that you could easily stay a week and not visit the theme parks. They are very kid friendly and other campgrounds should take lessons from Disney. The campground is well maintained and clean. If we have a complaint about Fort Wilderness it would be that some spots are hard to back into, and the price. We are planning to go back, so I guess those really are not complaints. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
