We stayed here the entire month of January. People are very friendly and helpful. It's convenient to the Winn-Dixie and 2 drug stores. Key West is only 25 miles away. There are so many Key deer around, they are almost a nuisance. We enjoyed petting and feeding them. We had no problem parking our 40' rig on B-6. They have cable and Wi-Fi, and they both work great. The electric and cable is included in the price. We would stay here again. - Dennis Reid

We weren't sure about this park when we arrived. We ended up in the back which is tight navigation. But once we got set up, we were happy. The pool is small and needs chairs but is clean and refreshing. The Key Deer come around every morning and evening and just hang out. The bus stop to Key West is just 1/2 block away. For the Keys, this is a reasonably priced campground. Sites are small but that's most sites in the Keys. The cable and Wi-Fi worked fine and the people are nice. We would camp here again. - RV Gypsy

Our site # 18, gravel, backed up to the water. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Private sites with foliage between the sites. Spent two glorious weeks there. Will go back if we can get in. - Field Trip
Nov 2016 - $40.00
We stayed here a week and enjoyed seeing the area again after several years. Site had a ton of mosquitoes and no-see-ums (flying teeth). Despite this we would stay again. Pricey for a State Park, but reasonable for the Keys. No OTA tv and Verizon was spotty. The area is beautiful though. Truck barely fit sideways in front of the trailer. - jtl2

Great location in the lower Keys. 10 miles north to Marathon and 37 miles south to Key West. Also Bus Stop outside the main gate on US 1 to go either way. Large level campsites with privacy vegetation between sites. Water connection is at the street by the site number so bring plenty of water hose. Lots to do but the weather was rainy and windy so not much going on. - Hey You
Mar 2015 - $63.00
Nice campground about 20 miles from Key West. Very narrow access roads with some trees on the edge and vehicles parked so it is difficult to turn corners and back in. We have a 32' 5th wheel. They will park it for you for a fee. They have a nice pool and laundry, cable works good, Wi-Fi is okay. Showers and restrooms cleaned daily. Key deer visit the camp sites daily. - Charlie M.

BPKFL is unlike any other campground we have ever stayed. Many of the campers have been coming for 20 years or more and some are second generation campers. Many of the campers are snowbirds who camp for months. I'm normally bothered by this because the sites tend to get junky looking. That isn't the case here. People have their decorations, but they are done in either a tasteful or silly way, so they actually add to the community feel. Although there are many snowbirds there are also children and young folks. Sites are very tight, and many rigs require tractor help to get situated. The sites are somewhat larger in rustic. Generators are not allowed so most campers in rustic use solar panels. Solar panels are adequate for most purposes, but cannot support air conditioning, so it can get pretty hot and muggy even in Feb.
We stay in rustic. In rustic there is a wonderful, welcoming sense of community. Many folks are there to fish. We don't but our neighbors kept us supplied from their daily catch. The activities are wonderful and frequent and just about everyone participates. Pie night is not to be missed-a dollar for real homemade pie and ice cream!
The bathrooms are immaculate. The staff is constantly cleaning. The pool is beautiful. There is a small beach for sunning and relaxing, but it is not really a swimming beach. There is also an observation deck overlooking a national wildlife refuge, often full of birds.
For any sort of extended stay you need to book a year in advance. Campers on site are given the option of renewing for the following year, so people trying to make long term reservations will generally have to go on a wait list until things sort out.
No dogs are allowed because the endangered Key deer wander around the campground.
We have booked 5 weeks for next year. - Carol49

This is our favorite place ever. Super clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots of events for all ages. Key Deer are amazing! Even if you don't have a boat there are rentals on the property. Lots of places to bike. Close to everything in the lower Keys. We can't say enough about how much we love it here. - Ritzroamer

Nice park with level gravel full hook up quasi-pul lthru sites. It is tight for big rigs to get into and out of "pull thrus" Lots of backing etc. Nice marina and docks, small manicured beach, and pool. Most sites occupied by snowbirds down for winter and very friendly. Cable is good along with cell phones. ONLY free wifi at the clubhouse/pool. You can purchase other wifi for your site. Well worth the Thousand Trails price, but probably not regular rates. - teepee51

We have been going to Sunshine Key RV Resort for the last 3 years and every year it gets better. This year we were greeted by the maintenance man as we pulled in. Super accommodating guy who wants your stay to be as great as it can be. He helped us get into our site then wanted to know if we needed help getting set-up. He said it was his day off and he wanted us to relax and enjoy ourselves. He told us about the best beaches in the area and about the best places in the area for happy hour.The park is well maintained with a great marina. The pool is awesome with activities on most weekends. We stayed here for 2 months and can't wait to get back. - Jeff & Laurie

This a great RV park located close to key west. Everyone was very friendly. Spacious dirt, concrete, grass sites with patio. - Melissa Hiatt
Mar 2017 - $80.00
We paid $80 per night plus tax plus $45 booking fee to Waterfront Realty plus $53 resort fee at check-in. For 13 nights, our all-in price was $98/night. Others have described this park well. We had a dry site (#20) which offered plenty of room for our 40' motorhome and tow car. We had a large patio area, picnic table and pretty landscaping which offered some (not complete) privacy. The road behind us was not busy or noisy. Our neighbors on each side could not have been nicer. The sites are individually owned and most residents spend the winter there. It's an extremely active crowd with a gazillion activities going on and tons of participation. It's easy to meet folks and make friends. Yes - there are a lot of rules - but it makes for a nice, clean, safe, lovely park. The security staff at the guard gate was very kind and helpful. We did not have wifi at our site. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Verizon cell, Sprint Mi-Fi and DirecTV worked well. We enjoyed our stay and are already thinking about when we can return and stay longer! - GottaGoNow

Some beautiful, very nice waterfront sites with breathtaking views. Fairly close to Key West. Our site was tight for parking, but once parked it fit like a glove. No WiFi. Cable, provided by site owner was dismal. Only one TV station in Key West, but a little pre-planning goes a long way. This is a trailer park that has RV spaces, but most are excellent. Best RV park value in the Key West area. - Scenic Cruiser
Jan 2017 - $100.00
Nice enough place - very busy & kinda loud. Spaces in our area are tight & it takes a village of people to get you in so you don't hit another rig. People don't care about quiet time. Its open to the public - so anyone can drive in at any time - so a certain lack of security. Lots of staff - nice enough & helpful with restaurant recommendations. Great location to do the variety of things the Keys offer. - kettlebelle

Basically a big gravel lot with pedestals and some trees. No pull-through sites. Some sites are double wide. All sites are full hookup/30/50 but utilities are at rear of sites. Better bring extra "stinky tubes" and 1 long or multiple water hoses. Nice pool with a hot tub. Well-stocked store with food, hardware, and trinkets. An open air pub with pizza and wings as their restaurant is only open during the winter, tourist season. Staff seems friendly enough. Laundry is $1.75 wash, $1.00 dry. Propane available at $7.29 per gallon. Showers/bathrooms updated and clean. They have Wi-Fi repeaters all over the place but connecting to the Internet is a challenge. There are primitive tent sites in a treed, shady area. No weekly or monthly rates, only Value Kard (KOA membership) discounts. - StephenK

People are very friendly. There is a pub on the premises! Store is currently undergoing renovation, so their supply is extremely limited. Fabulous location and weather! - Momtotwo

My experience at Lazy Lakes was very poor. In all my years of RVing, it is the only park I asked for a refund and wanted to leave the next day (they refused). Much of the park has a smell of rotting fish that we found intolerable. The permanent trailers (50% of park) are in poor condition, with trash everywhere. The facilities are in some cases nothing more than plywood shanty's. Cable is via satellite, so you need the proper setup. I paid for a lake site, found the stink unbearable, then moved to a site near the road. They refused to give me the difference for the non-lakeside site. They offered me a another lakeside site, but the smell prevented me from taking it. The picture on the website is of an island park maybe in the Caribbean, not this park. That should have clued me in, so shame on me. The price is $20 more than the KOA. I felt hustled and disgusted when I left. Staff was friendly and helpful, the park was a dump. The park looks like it was reclaimed land from the square lake. Also if you stay here, don't go anywhere near the sewage facility, It makes noise 24x7. I have been camping a very long time, this is the first review I thought I needed to write. - Bigs wife

Terrible RV park. Very tight. Junky. No cable even though they advertise it to be available. Management does not enforce leash laws. Unbelievable they can charge these prices. Keep on going. Don't stop here!! - robertsdj

This is an older park, only about 18 miles outside of Key West. It's an older park but the folks are quite friendly. There seem to be a lot of permanents there, and quite a few seasonal renters. I wouldn't recommend a big rig, since many of the turns are quite sharp, and one of the roads is a dead end, with no way of turning around. In other words, if you want to check out the park, go by car, bike or on foot. Just don't drive your rig in and expect an easy way out. There is always something going on at Lazy Lakes or at the adjacent KOA, which apparently has a full bar and is open to LL visitors. It was expensive for us, but everything in the Keys seems to be expensive. It was nice to spend Christmas in the Keys, though. Our rig is 38' long. - Gus the Fireant

What is there to say, this place lives up to the website that you book through. The staff was both courteous and the outdoor guys where friendly. BTW, the outdoor folks never quit, all day long they are running the roads picking up trash, trimming stuff & basically making everything look good all the time, even weekends we seen them out.
We knew going in that we had to switch sites mid-stay. The site we moved to had just had the coconuts removed so the RV was safe from damage. The trimming-truck had sprayed a little hydraulic fluid out on the pavers. This was easily avoided by us as we only found it after getting set up and onsite. This was the only issue we had.
Get up, coffee on the dock, fishing off the dock & sunset off the dock. The place is perfect. We WILL be going back. Gated entrance with your own code to enter.
The roads are very wide and easily manageable with whatever you are driving. Most sites we seen are both pull in and back in. This way you can plan how the outdoor living area suits you the best.
Vegetation was between sites to where you could not see and mostly could not hear the neighbors. This made the experience all the more personal. - -Stony-

We have stayed here now for several visits and usually during their off-season and have been thrilled with this park. This is an owner rental program park, and there are two different groups to rent from. A group of owners broke away from the original rental program and formed their own, and we always rent from this group. They are friendly, very accommodating and are always there to answer any questions and take care of any issues. We were a little disappointed in the overall upkeep of the park, which seemed a bit lacking in attention by the maintenance crew. The pool was extremely cloudy leaving us to wonder if the chemicals were being done correctly and if the pool was actually safe to swim in. The front gate broke while we were here, so the controlled security was not there, but for the most part, these things happen, and we still felt safe. This is a beautiful park....and we WILL stay there again and again! So close to Key West, and many nice restaurants. - Bluebird Owner

This is a super park which has sites that are privately owned and rented out. We had a tiki hut with TV, refrigerator, and ice maker. Also dining table and couch and chairs. We were on the water with a private boat dock and a swim ladder. Only 14 miles to Key West. The staff was great and assisted in parking and hooking up. Although it was pricey it was worth the extra cost. Would stay again. - tlrpilot

A real treasure in the Florida Keys, based on some of the other RV parks we saw between Key Largo and Key West. We lucked into a site for 3 nights during the winter season on short notice, which in this case was 3 months. Many people from up north enjoying extended stays down here. The facilities are somewhat old, but adequate. Many of the sites are on the tight side, but we got a fairly roomy shaded site. It was only 30 amp, but that was what was available. No sewer, but a "honey wagon" comes by and will dump for a small fee. Personnel were friendly. Rumor has it that the owner has sold the property and the park will close this spring. Too bad. This was quite a place in the Florida Keys. - one_strange_texan

The park was nice. We enjoyed our time here with our son. We had a site by the water and that was a treat at all times. We were able to walk into the water, although it was not sandy it was like clay. It was fun. There was a nice breeze. The men's restroom had a strong urine odor for the majority of the stay. And the toilet stalls were not big enough. My son was concerned of anyone walking in while he used it. This is when we asked that he not go there anymore unless there was an emergency. The showers were clean but the curtains were too narrow and there was no privacy to change in either restrooms (female or male). Another good point is that you can just bike or walk to the bridge and fish. My son enjoyed that a lot. There is a grill within walking distance. I did not go to it so have no recommendations on that. I guess that I would come back at some point. There is not much for kids to do here and there is no pool either. I did like that there is security at the entrance and the garbage gets picked up in the morning at your site if you do not want to go for a walk. The beach, well that was not very attractive, it was more like a jump into the ocean with no clarity as to what is underneath. Some people like that, I like to see what is there when I jump. Overall , it was nice. - AngelY

My comments are not up to date and guessing on the rate as we paid by the month. We have been coming to this place a lot since 2001 when we got our RV. We have stayed on the water and in the infield section. We last were there February 2014 and really like this place. Sadly, it has been sold and will be developed into a resort so the park will be gone. We have reserved a site this coming winter. Thank goodness. It is not a fancy rv park and not a resort type facility, but the staff is great, the campers are almost like family and I cannot wait to return. Thank goodness they come and pump you out or we'd have to leave in 4 days. - LindaVA1

A little pricey for our standards, but I guess not when you compare it to other RV parks near Key West in the height of the season. Stayed here at the end of February because we could not get into any of the Florida State Parks in the Keys. We had visited the "Fish Camp" restaurant here before, but never camped. They did a lot of work on the RV sites since our last visit - It seems they have cleaned out most of the semi-permanent residents, and are catering more to the shorter stay business. They have put down lots of hard packed gravel on the roads and sites, a new brick walkway along the canal, new electrical service, newly remodeled bathrooms and showers, and some of the sites have permanent "tiki hut" shelters and palm trees for some shade. The access is tight - we had to get some other campers to move their cars so we could back into our site. Once in the site, it was relatively roomy - there were quite a few big rigs there. It is true that the electric pedestals and water spigots might end up at the wrong side of your site, it's nothing a proper extension cord or hose won't fix. The staff and other campers were very friendly. The main walkway through the sites is the brick walk along the water, so be prepared for people walking back and forth across the waterfront end of your site. Some of the campers staying in the non-waterfront sites said the bugs were bad at dusk, but we had no problems out by the water in the breeze. The park is right at the end of one of the runways of the nearby Naval Air Station, so you will get an air show (and the noise that goes with it) all day long. You sort of get used to it, and they stop around sunset. They have rental kayaks available, and there are plenty of places to explore. There is a public beach a mile or so down the road, but like most places in the keys, it is more of a shoreline than a beach. The restaurant is a popular local gathering place - especially at happy hour - the food is very good and fairly priced. They have live entertainment on the weekends. No problem with the dogs, but as already said, the only real place to walk them is out along the road - there are no real grassy spots. The Wi-Fi was only reliable when you got up close to the main building, but they do have tables there where you can sit with your laptop. Some campers said they had trouble with the cable TV, but we got like 50 stations without the converter box that they will loan you if you need it. - WiliWali

We stayed for 3 nights during the week. Sites are roomy and clean. If waterfront, can swim/fish right behind site. Office staff very friendly and knowledgable about surrounding Keys. Treated like a native (from fla.,but not a local) at the bar. Everyone was really friendly and the food was excellent. Should have stayed a week to catch weekend BBQ. Will definitely return. Pet walk, way out front kept me from giving a 9. - phnz1

I gave the rating a nine only because it does not have 50 amp service. Other than that it is a ten. Oh yeah: a 50 amp system (like mine) will operate both a/c units as long as not too many other electric appliances are running at the same time. (ie: electric water heater, microwave, and hair dryer.) Yes it is tight, unpaved, and the hook-ups are set up for back in only even on the waterfront, but if you are smart enough to carry sewer, water, cable, and electric extensions you can still see the water from your windshield. If you want service on a silver platter and a space all to yourself, this is NOT the RV park for you. However if you want to experience the unspoiled, laid back, natural atmosphere coupled with the RV comradely of your fellow RVers as we do, this is the place! The gang at Geiger are the best. We feel as much at home here as we do at home. Our experiences every year here, are fantastic. Bring a kayak or canoe as I do and really explore. - giezerglide
