This is a well kept and well run park next door to Lazydays RV. The many amenities include a pool, jacuzzi, tennis court, shuffleboard, horse shoes, and kids playground. We did not see anyone using any of these except the pool and jaccuzzi. They host rallies on a regular basis and there is currently a Freightliner chassis owners rally on now. The staff are friendly and efficient. The park is not a long stay park and it's obvious. The sites are tight, but level. We are here because we purchased a new motorhome and are waiting for Lazydays to get it ready. Other than using it as a parking lot to visit the many Tampa attractions, attending the aforementioned rallies, or waiting for your new motorhome to be prepared, I couldn't recommend it as a camper's campground.

We made a 1 night reservation for our 35 foot motorhome with 2 slides, 1 dog, and 4 adults on an ocean front lot. The 1 night price was $140.00 plus tax. The ocean front lot was actually an inverted pie shape backing onto the boat launch with any water view blocked by shrubs. Take it or leave it. They were fully booked. Our neighbors were tenters on one side and a pop up trailer on the other side with about 5 feet separating us. We were able to open our slides by maneuvering our motorhome, however, we would not have had room to park a towed. Our adult sons used the washrooms and showers, but were not impressed with them. They were just OK. The staff was friendly, but not apologetic about their facilities. We were a short $20. taxi ride to Duval Street where we were able to purchase 4 big cookies and an ice cream cone for $26.00. Key West is a great destination, but be prepared to pay. We will return, but not to Boyd's.

This park was a disappointment! Almost every bit of it is gravel and we were parked between two seasonal residents. We did not have a patio or picnic table and our awning would have overlapped into our neighbors if we had opened it. The street side of our motorhome was next to a seasonal's dog kennel for their Rotweiller, and I had to disconnect his car wash hose to hook up to city water. There appeared to be quite a few un-kept seasonal residences with one dog running loose. I asked for a different site and was told that they did not have one large enough to accommodate our total 60 foot length with our trailer attached. At 10:30 pm, our neighbor started his motorcycle and warmed it up for a few minutes before he noisily left the park. It was late, so we stayed the night and left early the next morning. This park had a very good rating in one of the camping guides, but we can't agree with it.

We registered for a 5 night stay and eventually left after 30 days. Prior to leaving, we paid a deposit for a 60 day stay next winter. The site that we occupied was 40 feet wide with ample space to park our enclosed car trailer as well as our motorhome, and still have full use of the cement patio. Our Golden Retriever was a welcome guest for an extra $1.00 per day, and we also paid an extra $1.00 per day for our trailer. We rode our bicycles for miles on the private trails where we saw many alligators, numerous birds, and even made the 15 mile return ride to Bartow on the old rail trail. The large percentage of seasonal residents were friendly and welcoming with many from Ontario. The facilities were clean and convenient, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The only negative was the weak Wi-Fi signal. We found that we had to go to the main office to get a good and continuous signal. This park is a little more expensive than some others, but the amenities and activities that are available make it worth the little bit extra!!

Very friendly owners. There are lots of amenities for families and very good Wi-Fi and cable. The location is convenient to I-75 and we did not notice excessive highway traffic noise. The sites were understandably a little soggy due to the exceptional snow storm that had passed through days earlier, and we found them a bit narrow for our rig, but adequate. We will use this site again as a one night stop.
