Nice location right on Long Bayou. Lots of amenities and close to Madeira beach and shopping.
My only complaint was how close together the sites were.
Lots of good bird watching. We camped at St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

5 night stay in a 36" Class A. Our site had a broken and uneven pad. Sites are very close together with many permanent campers. Location is behind a commercial warehouse area. It is located next to the water so you put in a kayak, canoe or paddle board. Not a resort type experience if that is what you are looking for. There is a long hiking/biking path nearby but it mostly runs close to the very busy roads that surround this campground. Groceries, hardware and other stores are close as are many pawn shops, bail bonds and other colorful places. Roads were tight with many trucks/cars parking close to road or overhanging onto road. We camped at St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

Huge crowded park with many seasonal/permanent residents. That being said we had a nice back-in site (#32) on Long Bayou. However very little space to park tow in front. Not really satellite friendly as there are trees spotted all through park but we were able to make it work. Neighbors are close by. Nice concrete patio pad with picnic table. Excellent staff who were always available and helpful. Really nice paved walkway in front of park for bicyclists and walkers. Could walk or bike all the way into town. Also has kayaks and launching right on Bayou. Very convenient to shopping; Publix, Macy's, etc. Would stay here again. We camped at St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

Make sure to check out the Manatee Viewing Center about 50 mi away. Well worth the drive. At least a couple hundred manatees in the water at the Tampa Electric plant due to the warm water discharge from the power plant.

We have stayed at this campground several times while visiting family and friends and each time we notice improvements they are making. This past year they reworked their utility connections in a large portion of the park so they are now on the proper side and sites don't share a pedestal. Many sites have new 20, 30, 50 amp pedestals with new water and cable hook up and relocated sewer connections. They have added an exercise area with equipment in the building near the pool along with new fencing around the playground. There is new patio furniture around the nice pool area and they recently completely renovated the restrooms by the pool. Staff has always been friendly and helpful. They do a good job keeping the park and facilities clean even during busy times. Trash picked up at your site. Fire pit and wood delivered to you. Well stocked camp store. There are some negatives. This is an older park so the pavement is worn and sites will require leveling. Typical of KOA sites are close together. Although it doesn't bother us it can get busy with families and kids on the weekends so just expect it. Overall the location for exploring the area and the beaches is great. Plenty of places to eat at and shop nearby. Given the limited choice of campgrounds in this area we find this one meets our needs the best. We camped at St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Some attitude adjustments needed by the employees. Had a friend stop by to say hi and visit for an hour. They charged $5. Woke up one morning to find condoms on our truck. Would have used the restrooms but the smell was awful. Kids of all ages allowed to get into the hot tubs. The sites were in desperate need of repairs. Be sure to bring levelers.

Sites were nicely shaded grass and sandy. The water connection at our site was located on the passenger side of the camper, they offered to get us a longer hose if needed, however our hose was sufficient. The pool was very nice and heated. Check in personnel were very nice and escorted us to our site. Very near the water, in fact we had a water view site. Lots of people were there when we were, but didn't seem overcrowded.

The employees were very professional and helpful. There was a vehicle parked in the spot we were assigned and they helped get it removed. The view of Long Bayou was awesome. The park is big with a variety of occupants....RV's, homes and RV's made into homes. Very well kept. Plenty of activities. It is close to downtown. Definately would stay here again.

This KOA was stressful to say the least. There were so many people and the RV's were packed so tightly that there was no privacy. The people staying in the cabins and driving in their trailers were parked in the street so that you could barely get down the street in a car, let alone your RV. It looks like there are a lot of long term people that stay at the park and then the short term people are just fitted into the smaller areas. There was a tiny dedicated dog walk that had no grass and it was right up front with all of the cars going by and the pool area, so my dog wouldn't go in that area. We finally had to walk her down a trail outside of the park to find a patch of grass where there were fewer people. There were a lot of kids running around with no parental supervision. The day we left the street was blocked with a car from a cabin and on the other side on of their "long" term guest had put up a fence around their area. We knocked on the door of the cabin to get the car moved however, no one was around. The person that put up the fence finally came out to move one portion so that we could get out. It looked like it really put him out. Our section was tight but there were certain sections that literally had you walking out of your camper right into another camper's section. We know that they try to get as many camp sites into an area but this was not fun. We camped at St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

As previous reviews have stated this is an old RV park. It's clean but the roads inside the park are extremely narrow and most sites only had 30A power. We were fortunate to get a spot right on the Bayou but other sites backed up to a bike path and ditch where a construction crew was working with big equipment all day. Our 5th wheel is only 31 feet long but it took a lot of skill to get into the narrow space. The sewer outlet was located under the middle of our rig so I had to crawl under the trailer to attach the sewer line. Since the power was only 30A we could only run one A/C unit at a time and it was 85 degrees with 70-80% humidity so one half of our rig was very uncomfortable. On the first night all our power went out and flipping the breaker didn't help. The next morning the Assistant Manager came over to investigate. The breaker had burned out. He was exceptionally nice and offered to comp us one day for the inconvenience. The power box was rusty and hanging at an angle on a 4X4 pole. The power needs to be upgraded. Cable was horrible with lines and fuzz running across the picture and WiFi extremely weak. We paid $104 per night. For that high of price you would expect better amenities. The staff was great and again the Assistant Manager was a super nice guy and very helpful. Overall, it was a clean park and we had a beautiful spot but for these premium prices you would expect 50A power, decent cable, and usable WiFi. We camped at St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This KOA is an older park at the end of an unattractive industrial road. Once you arrive to the park, it's nice and is on the water. It's a little hard to see the water because of all the foliage at the shore. This park is barely-barely 'big rig friendly', you have to be careful maneuvering around the trees. I had to put out my orange cones at the front and back of the coach of our pull-through site just to be safe as we had no wiggle room. Our car was parked in the grass next to the coach. The roads are in need of some repair, they are asphalt as are the parking pads but are very aged. There is a picnic table and fire ring at each site. The electric was good at 120 volts on each leg. Apparently, we arrived during the 'in' season. The price, I feel, was way too high. The park was not full, maybe 75% full. The park seems to be cut in half, one side for park models and the other for RV'ers. All seemed to mesh well. We camped at St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

I know the KOA is not responsible for the maintenance of the road leading into the campground, but the county or city needs to make some much needed repairs to the bumpy and pitted road.

Great staff! I made my reservations on line, thinking they were for March. My mistake, they were for May! Got there, nothing available - yet they found us a site after some serious effort! Office staff is excellent! Took care of those in the store BEFORE answering the phone!!! Typical KOA in terms of tightness of sites. Some very close, ours (in older section with no cable tv) was larger. Interior roads are paved, sited are dirt with concrete patio. It's an old campground dealing with much larger rigs than what it was built for! Some shaded, many sites with no or little shade. Only part of the CG has cable tv. We were told OTA tv reception was good. Were able to use Sat TV at our site. Nice pool, 2 hot tubs (one is adults only!). Large clubhouse with play room. Very well stocked camp store. Quiet for its size! Very clean, with staff everywhere eager to please. Many snowbirds and permanent sites but everyone is friendly. Entertainment every weekend evening. Excellent location, very close to Madiera Beach. We will be back! We camped at St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

We stay at this park while visiting family and friends in the area. As others have noted you drive thru an industrial area to get to the park but once you enter it is a lot different. Large oak trees shade many of the campsites and others are along the water. As with many KOA's the sites are close together with little to no ground cover between. Although some aspects of the campground are showing their age the park is kept clean and we did not experience any problems with utilities. The pool and hot tub area is very nice and the restroom/showers at the pool have just been renovated and are among the nicest we have encountered. As campgrounds are limited in this area the location of this one makes it an ideal choice for access to the beaches and other activities the area has to offer. Staff friendly and helpful. Check in was quick and easy. We will camp here again. We camped at St. Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Travel Trailer.
