Lion Safari KOA

Just returned from a weekend at the KOA Lion Safari here in SFL. It was a nice short trip of 50 miles from home and a good time to break out the cobwebs of inactivity for 2 months. Unfortunately it rained heavily and the humidity was up in the high 80% range. We heard lions at dusk and at dawn even through the walls of the AS. The campground filled up even with tent campers. The lots were smaller than we have been used to in our cross country trip this past summer. The campers were mostly floridians, those guys can handle the humidity, pop-uppers were out in force. They have a large pool and a clean modern building for showers and laundry. I found it kinda of funny that the picnic tables were smaller than we have seen elsewhere I guess they matched the size of the lots. It is a good package if combined with the discount for entrance into the Lion Safari Park next door. Lots of kids on bikes in the campground. A large youth group in the tent area. Found one with a blue tarp and an AC pumped through an opening. Interesting that in our long trip this past summer we saw a prevalence of fifth-wheelers over any other type of camper but this weekend the locals are mostly in travel trailers.

We've stayed there on a few occasions when in the West Palm vicinity. It seems to be the only decent option in an area void of many good options. We enjoyed our stay for the most part and the grands really enjoyed the wildlife.

Lion Safari

I forgot to mention there is no Wi-Fi nor cable, kinda of backward for what they charge. I found that on our trips those two items were an easy upgrade to the campground for operators to attract campers when campsites are competing.
