Date of Stay: January, 2012
We had a beautiful site right on the river, with a dock behind the site. My kids loved that they could go right outside and fish by themselves. There was so much to do at this park that we did not let ourselves have any downtime. We wanted to make the most of our weekend. Some activities could be a little pricey but others were free or reasonably priced. We took the kids to the petting zoo where they spent plenty of time with the animals and feeding them. They played basketball on the courts and rode their bikes all around the campground, though we were there on a busy weekend - Classic Car show - so we needed to stay close together. The Car Show was a nice bonus and we enjoyed walking around and looking at all the cars. The kids also did some archery and watched people do skeet shooting (my kids were too young for that). We went to the Rodeo Saturday night, which was reasonably priced as well and was extremely entertaining. This place is the ultimate campground for a family. If you have a lot of time, you could really take advantage of all there is to do there. I feel like we got a good sampling in and we will definitely be back to enjoy the stuff we just simply ran out of time for.

We just returned from a weekend at Longpoint. Though the area surrounding the park is beautiful the actual park is in need of some maintenance. We paid a premium for a water site that was on the Indian River Lagoon. However, our site had no view out to the water, it was blocked by mangrove trees, thick heavy trees. There was a small clearing where we could have pulled a kayak up behind our site, however from the standing water it was a mosquito infestation. From the minute we arrived and walked through the long unkept grass my entire family was bitten up by pesky mosquitoes. We could not spend any time outside enjoying this park because of the terrible mosquito problem. They would literally swarm my children and I would swat 5-7 off of them from the minute we returned to the park until we were safely in our trailer. There were sites up the road from us with amazing water views and boats parked right behind their sites. Those were more towards sites 45 and up. My other issue with the place is the well water hookup. The water had a nasty smell to it and I was afraid to allow my children and myself to bathe in it. It was disgusting to have to breathe that in and has left a faint odor in my brand new trailer. The only upside to this weekend was the beautiful areas we visited at Sebastian Inlet State park where we swam in their swimming area and spent an afternoon and the beaches that are only a few miles away from LongPoint and very secluded and relaxing. I would only return to this area if I could get a spot at Sebastian but I will not return to Long Point any time soon.

This is a great park to take your family to. Even though it was full for the holiday weekend, it never felt busy. The beach is within walking distance but if you don't want to drag all your stuff you can park closer to the beach access. Get here early though because many locals come to spend the day in the area as well. There is a great playground for the kids. My recommendations would be to make sure you get a site with a concrete slab, otherwise you will be parking in the grass. The campground definitely needs some maintenance (bumpy dirt roads with many potholes, dirty bathhouses, needs re-mulching on the playground), but the location more than makes up for it, especially if you are here in some kind of RV. There is plenty to do at the park but there is also a great little marina area not too far, that has great outdoor restaurants and you can book fishing charters. I would definitely return to this park.

We had a great time at this campground. There were many outdoor activities to do that were all included in your resort stay. Mini golf, shuffleboard, basketball, Olympic size pool, hot tubs, horseshoes, putting green, tennis, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some. The staff was friendly and helpful. We thought our cable TV wasn't working on a Sunday night during our stay and a very helpful park staff came out in the dark with a replacement cable and assisted us in the "after hours". There is a 24-hour manned gate. There are many residents here but my family enjoyed the campground and it was such a nice place to be. There were a lot of family friendly activities in the surrounding area like the aquarium, state park, and others. I would definitely camp here again in the warmer months to really take advantage of the outside recreation. We camped here for 4 nights.

This campground was a great find in the keys. It was close by to shopping and restaurants yet secluded enough to feel very peaceful. I camped here w/my family which includes 2 young children. We enjoyed the pool, playing shuffleboard, and they played at a small playground that was enough to keep them busy yet nothing to write home about. We had a beautiful site, right on the water with a tiki hut, picnic table, and lighting. People were friendly, though at the time of year we were here, it was rather quiet. They say there are "beaches" on site, but "beaches" in the keys are not really what we think of as beaches. There was access to the water with some sand but it was muddy and a little smelly. We were able to fish from our site for small bait fish, but it was enough to keep my kids entertained. You could enter the water right from your site as well. If you have a small boat you can dock it behind your site. Our neighbors were nice enough to take us out on their boat during our stay. This campground is a great place to visit in the summer when you want to relax by the pool or book a snorkeling, diving, or fishing adventure and I highly recommend it.
