Day 68 – Why Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground Should Be on Every RVer’s Radar

We spent the weekend at campsite 304 at Fort Wilderness. It was adjacent to a comfort station (restrooms and showers) and a garbage and recycle station. It offered a private picnic table and grill as well.

On Day 68 of the Nowhere To Be Project, I spent some time reviewing our fabulous weekend. We spent it at Walt Disney World’s Fort Wilderness Campground in our new 2018 Winnebago Navion RV. We specifically chose Fort Wilderness for our inaugural trip due to its proximity to our home, thinking that a short three day jaunt would be the best way to work out any of those new RV kinks. We also selected it because it is one of the best campgrounds we have visited in our nearly 15 years of RVing.

Fort Wilderness is one of Disney’s oldest resorts, but also one of its most affordable. We have camped in a RV at the resort many times over the years and have also stayed in their wilderness cabins several times. Fort Wilderness offers glamping at its finest with a prime location on Disney property. Amenities include free transportation to the theme parks by water ferry or bus, abundant immaculate restroom/shower/laundry facilities, level spots with full hook ups (many with with grills and picnic tables), two swimming pools with organized activities and music, a nightly campfire singalong and movie, an equestrian area with horseback riding, dog park, archery, convenience store, and multiple restaurants and bars. Golf carts are available for rent as well to make getting around the manicured property a snap.

Prices at Fort Wilderness vary depending on the season and on the size and type of camping spot needed. We paid roughly $80 per night for our 24 foot class C RV. I highly recommend this campground to anyone who desires stress-free camping, with or without kids. It is a really great spot for newbies as well because everything is so user-friendly. There is just so much to do within Fort Wilderness that the theme parks almost become an afterthought!
