Campground is mostly full of permanent residents in camping units of various states of disrepair. Roads are fine. Transient area is a grassy field which is kept mowed . Utilities there are only 30 amp. Restrooms were marginally clean. Washer dryer worked well. Lots of aggressive barking dogs and feral cats. We will not stay here again. There is no nighttime security, gates are wide open, and we learned later that the park is near a very bad neighborhood. Our bikes were locked to our RV and during the night thieves cut through the bike cable locks and stole our two bikes. They also stole our neighbors bike. Park management did not warn us of this potential problem and when we reported the theft they stated that it was unusual to have 3 stolen at once. They were not surprised of the theft. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Most horrible dirty park we were ever in. Grass was so high we could not even find the hookups. We should have left but had driven a long day and needed to get to the Keys, so we just dry camped and left early the next day. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Old, run down campground with loads of permanent residents with "grown in" rigs. Uneven grass sites and narrow potholed roads. That said, the people are friendly and it's quiet at night. Many kids and dogs. We would not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here last year in January also and can say the atmosphere is much better now. Many of the older junky RVs have been removed and the bad element that was stealing bicycles and other items left out has not been a problem this year. We have been here for 3 weeks so far and will extend another 30 days at the monthly rate of $425 which includes electric ($28 daily & $170/week). The monthly rate is much better than the other parks in the area. There are no planned activities or pool in this park so if that's important to you, then this is not the park for you but, if you want a great rate with an equally great location this park will do just fine. The showers are usable but with full hookups, who needs them? We first stayed here in 1975 - not much has changed since then. It's surprising to see the park still here after Hurricane Andrew passed over it! We plan to stay here on our next winter get-away trip to Florida also. The office hours are limited and this park does not take reservations. If you arrive after hours, there's an overflow area to use with water and electric available. There have been times when we had to wait for someone to leave for a site with full hookups but that was several years ago - there are several good spots open right now. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This city operated park has a great location just one block off US-1 and the entrance to the Florida Keys and Everglades National Park at Flamingo. Nice friendly folks. We've stayed here in the past and will use the park again in the future. The sites are all grassy and level. There are several units that have been here too long and show their age and should be salvaged. Overall, the park is pretty decent. The monthly rate of $425 and weekly rate of $170 include electric - max stay is 6 months for "new comers". Super Wal-Mart & Home Depot are just a block away as are other shopping and dining. The crime rate outside the gate is twice the national average but no problems have been reported in the park other than the theft of unsecured bicycles. There is no pool, but there is a playground and pavilion. Propane is available in the park as well as Laundromat facilities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A pleasant park with paved roads, grassy sites, and shade trees. Staff was friendly and helpful. Good security. Wi-Fi was free and reliable most of the time. Handy location to tour the area sights: Everglades and Biscayne National Parks. There is a Tiki Bar open four nights a week to the public! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access from highway but far enough away that noise is not a problem. Sites are mostly grass with some concrete patios. As with most Florida parks it has a large winter season population as well as some longer term residents. WI-FI was reasonable and they offer storage. Good short term park, we would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed here several times in the past 6 years. This park has beautiful trees and flowering shrubs throughout. Also one of the grounds workers was the nicest man, he couldn't speak English, but tried hard. There's not enough space here to state the negatives unfortunately. The owner rides around in a gulf cart looking for sites to complain about. She is not very nice to talk with. The office help are indifferent, and not very friendly. We were promised a specific site on the phone only to find it was given to someone else right before we arrived. The lady told us we weren't allowed to request a site. Every time we went in the office there was another note telling all of us what we could or couldn't do and the consequences. They were enforced randomly, many blatantly ignoring the "latest" new rule and yet another would be asked to leave wondering "why them" when no one else was. The sites are close together and the concrete pads are too small and too far back to be useful. Every time it rained we had a mess out our front door. They have a public Tiki Bar in the middle of the park and every night awful karaoke could be heard loudly even in the remotest areas. We never did get comfortable with non-campers coming and going at all hours. The Wi-Fi was a joke, when we made the reservation we were told they had just updated the Wi-Fi in the entire park. Our site was right behind the office this time and we never had good signal or kept getting kicked off. We had to call and ask them to restart the service every other day. The bathrooms and showers were somewhat clean but old and smelly, with stained and broken tile. They have a laundry room with many old non-efficient machines. The dryers took forever to dry anything. We understand this park is being sold to accommodate a casino, and there has been no money put into updating anything in this park for years. This is a gem waiting to be polished. Too bad it won't get its chance. This area needs a really nice RV park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, comfortable park. Friendly hosts and helped us find a nice restaurant. Would recommend again! My wife used the washers and was happy. All facilities were clean and very good condition. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed there monthly and the monthly rate included a certain amount of electricity which we never went over. The people were friendly, the staff friendly and most helpful. One of our party had to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance, and the staff bent over backwards to help us. The biggest problem is that the sites are narrow and you are very close to your next door neighbor. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you like extremely loud music that continues to after mid-night and makes sleep or even conversations in most of this campground impossible, then this RV Park is the place for you. Don’t consider asking the campground owner to ensure the Tiki Bar music is played at a sane level, we were told he was the one actually playing music/karaoke and everyone’s request for volume reductions were rudely ignored. This music was so loud the Tiki Bar was empty at 9:30pm on Saturday night, but the deafening levels of possibly the worlds worst music selections still continued for hours longer. Getting in and out of this RV Park is extremely dangerous due to the traffic patterns and flow especially for larger rigs. The sites were well spaced and some had trees, but navigation on the narrow roads in the campground was very difficult for our longer fifth wheel. All sites had grass (no gravel) which was nice, but it was very difficult for us to actually get out of our site the day we left due to no traction on the grass in the rain. Most rigs were newer, some are permanent and there are work crew campers also. This is a 1950s RV Campground that shows it’s age everywhere. Nothing is terrible, just worn. The bath and showers were adequate, but all were in need of a full face lift and more frequent cleaning. No sites had garbage containers! We would suggest name change for this RV Park. Something like the “Southern Discomfort RV Resort.” We will never go back there and have never seen such a total lack of respect for customers at any RV Park before. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an old campground but has plenty of room for our 40' rig to move around. There are no concrete pads for your RV but the grass is pretty level. Some sites have a pad for the patio but most do not. There is a Tiki Bar in the park and there is live music 3 nights a week. It is very loud and you can hear it from anywhere in the park way into the late night. People are friendly and the staff is helpful. I would come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older park with narrow roads and uneven tight spaces. We only had 30amp hookup and don't know if there were 50amp spaces available. They have entertainment 3 nights a week, but the drawback is that it is loud and continued until 12:30am. We camped here in a Motorhome.
