Weekend at Madeira Beach KOA

We loaded the motor home yesterday morning and headed to Madeira Beach for the weekend. KOA offered a promotion for this weekend. Pay for Friday night and get Saturday night free. They call it their “Care Weekend”. They asked me for a donation to the children’s cancer fund, which I gladly obliged.
This is a nice campground, located on the water. It is close to the beach, plus you can bring a boat. I plan to return with our jet boat sometime this summer. They have a swimming pool and Jacuzzi amoung many other activities. It’s geared toward kids, so there is a multitude of families staying in the campground.
We left the two cats at home, since we will only be gone two days, and brought Skeeter, our dog. This is Skeeter’s first trip in the motor home. He absolutely loves it. He will definitely become a "motor home dog". He road on the dash during the trip here. He had a ball looking at all the traffic and sights. Once at the park, Skeeter adapted to campground life like a trooper. I’m sure this will be the first of many trips for him in the motor home.
We slept in this morning, but plan to get out and scout around the area for the remainder of the day. There are several restaurants that sound inviting, so we will probably choose one and have lunch out.


  1. Looks like a great weekend! It has not stopped raining here since we got home and the long range forecast calls for much more to come. I managed to get up on the roof to replace our Canadian flag that was reduced to tatters over the winter but that is about it for outdoor activities.

    I wish we were back in FL!

  2. It ended up raining, actually storming here not long after I made my post. We ended up staying in the motor home most of the day. We needed a day to just relax, anyway. I'm grilling Filet Mignons for dinner. Just getting ready to make a bloody mary. You guys take care, and please keep in touch.
