[QUOTE=subvetss;976651]My wife and I were raised in a very small country town in the Catskill Mt… For the boys in that town the woods was the place where things were happening. Most of my youth was spent in the outdoors in the mountains. Wilderness camping was my thing. I spent over 40 years as a Scout leader and did plenty of wilderness campouts. I know wilderness.
We have made about 30 stays at Disney’s Ft. Wilderness. It used to be one of the nicest commercial camping ground I ever was to. About three years ago , for some ungodly reason, Disney decided to remove all the undergrowth from the campsites. What this has done is left the loops looking like 1 big motor home sales lot.
Now if you come from a city or suburban area this may seem OK. Every thing is relative. But to us, as experienced outdoor folks, they took away the ‘Wilderness’ part of the Fort.
I’m sure some of you will disagree. It’s still a great place but not for us anymore.
Wow that stinks. I wonder why they would do that. I totally understand what you are saying. Even other private campsites that we have gone to were like that and we would ask for a more “primitive” site. So that could be something to ask for? Just a thought.
We are a camping family but have never camped in WDW. And never plan on it! I would really love to hear your experience! Have a great time.
