Yes it's expensive, but you get the free boat ride to Magic Kingdom and free parking at the other resorts (or take the free bus). Parking is $13 a day otherwise. Add that to the cost of any other campground near the Rat's Nest.

There are other campgrounds near amusement parks, but none like Disneyworld. If they are charging too much, then people won't go. Outside of this bad economy, they usually do very well packing the campground.

Unfortunatly in the Northeast since we have a short season there are many campground who have gone up. The average rate here is 60 a night, then they add for kids, and some campgrounds charge 8.50 per a night per a kid.Lake George RV resort with a family of 6 (not mine) was $100 a night. I guess this is family camping. Is it nice, yes, but to charge for each kid 8.50 a night is ridiculous. Pine acres in mass is similiar except they also hit you each night for a dog.

Crazy...but they are nice campgrounds, and people are paying it.

It's just like hotels. I can't fathom a $200+ a night hotel room. You're just sleeping there, not living. But there are those that can't fathom a less than $200 hotel room, if you can afford it and feel it's worth it then why not? There are people that gladly pay for it.

I imagine most people spend a total of a couple weeks a year camping, some more, some less. I'm still making $2940 a year worth of payments on my TT, that breaks down to I have got to spend more time camping! Dang! With campground fees that's over $200 a night! Maybe I can fathom it.

But I wouldn't have it any other way either.

But there is no comparison with the amenities, NONE, with what you get at Fort Wilderness.

I have stayed at Fort Wilderness every year since it opened and I will continue to go there, even when the raise their price to $105.00

Mosquitoes included

Looks like it's a little cheaper staying on the Gulf rather than the Ocean

A little more shade at Fort Desoto

Ron and Dee:

HEY!! You've got our CAT!!!...complete w. pink collar.

We've checked out Fort Desoto a few times when visiting w. our toad, but have yet to stay. Your picture just might seal the deal next time we're in the St. Pete area. Beautiful photo.

Say....noticed your laptop tray in front of psngr. seat. Did you make this tray or was it in the rig? Is it on a slide track? Sure would like to put one in our rig in the same location.

We departed Tampa/St. Pete. on June 9th and are presently way up here in Northern Minnesota visiting family in Duluth. Brrrrrrrrr. it's been cold, grey and windy since arriving. Though we were getting pretty tired of Tampa, we're starting to miss the warmth....ALOT!!

Thanks again for the pic., and....RETURN OUR CAT!!! Steve & Lynette

Steve & Lynette,

Fort Desoto is very nice but also very hard to get a site since it is a very popular campground.

Acutally those pink collars are flea collars.

Boo on the right has a blue collar and Shadow, my little Miss Priss, on the left has a red collar. Very lovable wild cats that we had to trap when they were babies.

The tray is standard equipment.

Ron

With city, counties and states wanting more money, you can expect new laws and increases in Hotel taxes for all RV Parks. My County of Santa Cruz if CA charges Hotel Tax to everyone who sleeps in their own RV, TT or tent at RV Parks, not to mention admission increa$e$ in State, County and National Parks.
For those who voted for change, your getting it.....

Like another member(s) posted we have been ripped off at $40+ per night and sometimes it is great to splurge on a really nice CG. 2 Rivers Landing Campground in Sevierville TN is a great spot at $62 per night. Easy in, easy out and a stop light for easy access or departure. DW took this pic at sunset from the front of the MH looking out over the French Broad river.



Very nice and well worth the money.

At Fort Wilderness you are not paying for $72.00/night for camping
You are paying $72.00/night for camping AT DISNEYWORLD.
And as I recall they give free shuttle service to the park, and you get to use the hotel amenities (Everything but the room) and more, this does add somewhat to the cost of the site.

However.. Should you choose to park elsewhere.. You are WAY more likely to see me
