Did you know that there’s a way to visit Walt Disney World and stay on property inexpensively? While the word “inexpensively” is a relative term, it’s true. All that’s required is that you have a love for the outdoors and for at least some, a willingness to try something new. We’re talking about the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, located along the southeastern shore of Disney’s Bay Lake.
For many families, this is not really a stretch. According to a report prepared by Coleman Corporation for the Outdoor foundation, 15% of all Americans participated in some kind of camping activity during 2011. In 2015, a report chartered by Kampgrounds of America (KOA) indicated that a full 44% of Americans go camping at least once a year. While that’s a relatively large number of people, it still leaves a staggering number of folks who have yet to experience this exciting and rewarding activity.
Camping at Fort Wilderness is about as safe and clean as it gets. There are nearly 800 campsites that range from simple tent sites to full hookup RV sites. There are also over 400 fully furnished, air conditioned cabins in case camping is not exactly what you had in mind. And in case you want to camp but lack the equipment, there is a service from Disney that lets you rent a tent and cots. You’ll need to bring the rest of your equipment yourself. To learn more about this service, you can call Campground Guest Services at 407.824.2900.
