The Campground

Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground is located in Orlando. It is a wonderful place to camp and has been the host for this annual campout for the past 8 years. A short walk leads to the center for various activities including Chip and Dale's outdoor theatre, heated pool and hot tub, arcade, tennis courts, fish pond, and camp store. Heated restrooms, hot showers, and ice machines are available in the group area.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no electric on the sites, we can not run extension cords, and no generators are allowed in the group area. Please plan accordingly.

BRING BIKES! There are excellent bike trails, and it makes transportation around the park more comfortable.

Family-friendly worship and teaching Sunday morning at 8:45am.

Some folks do go into Disney Parks, but most just take advantage of all the campground has to offer. Sorry, no pets are allowed in the group camping area. Quiet hour is 11:00 pm. Please be considerate of the noise after this hour.
