  2. Orlando/ Kissimmee KOA

    One of the things we love so much about KOAs is that they add another dimension to your vacation.  This KOA is located minutes away from Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, Gatorland, LEGOLAND Florida.  This means you can have all the fun of visiting any of these awesome parks, and also have all the fun of the outdoors and camping.
