KOA Touts South Florida Camping Sites
Despite the impending loss of a South Florida KOA campground on Lake Okeechobee, campers who frequent the large, popular lake just northwest of Miami still have plenty of KOA camping options.
“We were obviously sorry to hear that our Pahokee/Lake Okeechobee Outpost KOA will be closing at the end of January,” KOA Vice President of Communications Mike Gast stated in a news release. “It was a great location for us, and we’re sad to see it leave our system.”
Gast said Lake Okeechobee campers still have two other wonderful KOA options among the 24 Kampgrounds of America locations in Florida.
“Our Okeechobee KOA on the north shore of Lake Okeechobee is one of our premiere locations, with two huge swimming pools and its own golf course,” Gast said. “The Okeechobee KOA is one of the jewels in our 485-campground KOA system.”
Gast said campers looking for great camping near Lake Okeechobee can still camp at the Clewiston/Lake Okeechobee KOA on the southwest corner of the lake.
“It’s a big lake, but we still have it surrounded with great KOA camping,” Gast said.
