We gave stayed in many koa?s over the years and this is one of the nicer ones. Sites are plenty big enough and level, WiFi and cable are excellent and we even get satellite on our site, although some sites may have trees that would block the signal. We got a premium site by the little lake and have an excellent view and visiting ducks. We were here five years ago and they have made many improvements since then. Yes, you hear a siren now and again but being so close to everything more than makes up for that in my opinion. We are in a 40 foot motorhome and will definitely be back.
Poor Stay at the KOA
This was our 50th RV Campground since we started our trip nearly 9 months ago. I was looking forward to visiting St Augustine thanks to some friends recommendations and of course, it is the oldest city in North America.
Our stay at the KOA was very disappointing from the moment I pulled into the campground. Our nightly rate of $67 was the most we had spent on our trip so far, so I was expecting some pizzazz. Instead, I was greeted by an unhappy employee who did not want to help me and a campground full of 'Out of Order' signs.
I paid a bit more for a 'premium' space, but the only thing premium was having a small 'wooded' area between you and other RV spaces. Our space was up front so we had lots of noise from the tour buses and other campers. Our picnic table and patio area was in disrepair. The space was very unleveled, there was at least a one-foot elevation difference.
We had full hookups and surprisingly the WiFi was reliable (not enough for me to work on, but good enough for casual browsing). The cable TV worked, but the channels were limited (we did get two religious channels, including the infamous GOD TV).
The 'play' area was pathetic, run down, and dirty. The laundry room had 20% of the washers 'Out of Order' and two out of the three dryers were 'Out of Order' our visit. The game room looked sad; half the machines were 'Out of Order'. It seemed you could not walk around the RV campground without seeing those three dreaded words, 'Out of Order'.
The RV Campground is centrally located, you of course have to drive into the city but who would expect a RV Campground in a 500+ year old city? There were shops and food nearby.
At the end of the day, our stay was pleasant. I could not imagine coming here again though and paying nearly $70 a night. This is a $40 per night RV Campground, not a penny more.
Would I recommend this park? Not really. Would we come back? No.
