KOA just OK 6/21/2007

Businesses in and around St. Augustine tend to be misleading when trying to tell visitors on their websites how close they are to either the beach or the historic district. This seemed to be the case when some friends came to visit and stayed in the KOA on Pope Road in St. Augustine. The website had apparently boasted that they were walking distance of the beach. This is not necessarily true. Perhaps a nice biking distance, but no walk to the beach, especially not if you plan on carrying anything. The facilities there were nice enough, with cheap pedal/paddle boats for rent (though no one there to help us out of the boats) and EVERYTHING closing at 8pm: the game room, the camp store, the POOL. It isn't even dark by 8pm in Florida at the time of year. That was somewhat disappointing. The campsites were also a little cramped. Luckily there weren't any neighbors, so we could still play lawn games. Be careful what sites you rent, because you are oftentimes right behind businesses, and some unlucky people were behind a car wash with vacuums going all day and into the early evening. They also have brochures in their camp store for "kabins" that are not on their property: luxury ones with bathrooms. They like to mislead you. They also say they are the closest campground to the oldest city. This is not the case. The much more beautiful and accommodating Anastasia State Park campground is closer. Just be sure to book there in advance! more
