[QUOTE=Screever;988712]I have never ever stayed here and know next to nothing about it. But I…might be planning a trip? In the next year? :ph34r:
-Are you able to get a camping space if you just have a tent (and possibly a car) and not a campter/trailer/pop up?
-How much does it cost each night to camp out? (Someone told me it was really cheap…)
-Is it really cold and lame to camp in the winter months, and is it terrible hot in spring? When’s a good camping time?
-What are the campgrounds like? Do they have quiet hours? …clean restrooms and food/snackage/transportation close at hand?
I’m sure I’ll have more questions later…right now its just a vague pipe dream. Thanks y’all![/QUOTE]
They do have tent sites, absolutely. There is room for your car in those sites also.
For me, personally, it would never get cold enough in Florida to not be able to camp in a tent BUT there CAN be cold fronts and random nights where it can possibly get down to the lower 40’s or possibly even a higher 30’s overnight. This, to me, still isn’t cold enough to bother me but for many obviously it would be chilly. You’d need to make sure you have a sweatshirt, sleeping bag & extra blanket just in case that happens.
You also probably don’t want to go tenting there in the summer, it can be SOOO unbearably hot & rainy. July, August, and September would just be out of the question for me.
If I were to sleep in a tent at Fort Wilderness I’d probably choose Oct-Nov or Feb-March.
- Fort Wilderness ammenities are AMAZING in my opinion. Everything has always been very clean and enjoyable when I’ve been there. As far as snack/food/transportation goes your choices are excellent. You have two big camp stores with grocery items, some health/beauty stuff, your regular Disney resort merch, and camping supplies. You’ll have bus transportation available to all the parks & boats that will take you to the MK, Contemporary, and the Wilderness Lodge. There are two restaurants there; Hoop Dee Doo (meal with a great show) and a ‘country’ like buffet called Trail’s End which is one of my favorites. There is a small bar & arcade inside the same building as Trail’s End.
They also have a petting zoo, horse ranch, boat rentals (mostly canoe & row boats), golf cart & bicycle rentals, volleyball court (sand), nice new pool, & tennis.
