Official 'Post a Picture of your Campsite' Thread

Hey guys, why don't we pool all of our campsite photos together and make a list of all the sites we've stayed in? I've searched the internet many times in the past for pictures of campsites at Fort Wilderness and think it would be helpful to many to get a good idea of how rigs and tents fit in certain campsites. When you post your picture don't forget to add:

loop number:
site number:
type/size of rig/tent:
ease of backing into site:
addt'l info about site:

Wish I had a picture of a site..well not one with my own trailer on it...but wanted to say what a good idea this is! I am looking forward to viewing the sites. This can be especially helpful to first time visitors to the camping sites(been to the cabins) like myself. Thanks.

Loop 500 ( preferred, pet overflow ), Site 542, '06 Fleetwood Expedition, 39', three slides and a large awning, very large site and was easy to back into, right on the curve, so I turned left and then backed straight in. Just about all the sites in this loop had big rigs. April 2007 ( that's our rental van in front, so you can see there was lots of room )

loop number: 1900

site number: 1903

type/size of rig/tent: 36' MH towing 18' trailer

ease of backing into site: not good. had to unhitch, back trailer in with Jeep, then back MH in.

addt'l info about site: Land fell away badly from pad on both sides. Hard to walk around rig, no room for yard chairs or kids to play. Couldn't extend awning. Lots of droppings from cypress trees got in our Schnauzer's hair. Every time we took her out, it took us 20 minutes to get the junk out of her hair.

Great Idea

This is loop 1800, site 1807 (full hook up pet loop)...



35 ft motorhome. Was able to put out slide on each side and our awning. We did have to park the minivan we towed at the parking lot up front because it wouldn't fit at the site along with the golf cart. No problems backing in.

Comfort station is inbetween 1600 and 1800 loops... just down the road and around the corner. Easy walk to pet walk area.

Loop 400. I stopped keeping track of site numbers a long time ago. (I will start again!!!) But it was a bit tight. Not easy to get in , not very wide either. I remember other 'big rigs' taking a long time getting into thier sites in this loop.

Mickey is a sticker. I did some work with a scanner and Photoshop, and I have a friend with the tools to make some pretty nice graphics.So that along with Ebay and the Outlet Stores and I have made these "Mickefication", well you know what I mean.












As for the inside of the trailer, we'll save that for another thread!!!

I love the Mickey on your camper as well as the blow up Mickey. The light on the pole is awesome. Where did you get that???? I love it!!! We are going to go camping Oct 08 at Ft. Wilderness, have never been before and am enjoying this thread with all the pics and info about various sites, very helpful!!!
