Just spent a week at Ft Wilderness over Christmas. A non premium site was all I could get and there were plenty of them vacant during our stay.
The site was $130 a night and came with a tropical view where we were bait for the 10 million evening and morning mosquitos! Site was soooo tight, that it took me over 1 hour to get past the trash cans, a strategic tree right in my truck turn radius! A neighbor took two hands and pulled the water hook up back so I could clear it. Ohhh, use the other side of the site when backing, try again. Tree was blocking my turn and was less than 1 inch from my truck (and I have a short box).
This was not our first rodeo at Ft Wildnerness. The site was not adequate for a 37ft fifth wheel plus truck. Next time, no premium site, I will say no thank you!
Oh, they came around and offered me a different site IF we took our rig out of the park and then came back around and got into line again or unhooked and drove around and found a spot. Soooo, accommodating for guests. I guess that is precisely why it is the home of MICKEY MOUSE!
We could not use our entire pad due to the back in restrictions as stated. Our chairs sat in the mulch. All for the pleasure of $130 a night.
We had a group of 14. 11 of whom were staying at the Shades of Green military hotel owned by the US Army. They had 3 rooms for $95 each room and free transportation.
We DID have a good time in spite of the camping and have been there in Ft Wilderness before (our spot was better for access). Our 5er was a LOT smaller, 36ft vs huge 37ft
. (same truck).
