The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort
Roughing it with all the comforts of home and the thrills of summer camp-type activities make everyone a happy camper.
Its inception 25 years ago came right alongside Walt Disney World's, giving the grounds time to grow its tall pines and swell naturally with lush forest. The serenity offers a welcome retreat for harried theme park visitors. A true outdoors adventure it's not, with its air-conditioned comfort stations, three restaurants and other urban comforts. Nevertheless, wild animals are often spotted and numerous recreational activities typical of the great outdoors are offered Diehard campers can pitch their tents next to a charcoal grill and picnic table. Partial hook-up sites include water and electric, full hook-up adds a sewer, and preferred sites add cable and a convenient location. Those who cringe at roughing it can rest easy in a fully appointed cabin. Among amenities and recreation are two pools, horseback riding, fishing and watercraft rentals. Children are especially entertained here, as they enjoy two arcades, pony rides, hayrides, a petting farm and the Campfire Program.
