We stayed here in a 35 ft MH towing a jeep. We were fortunate to have had two nights on the water. Absolutely breathtaking views and the sunsets gorgeous. We had to move to campsite 36 on our third night. No views but shaded and somewhat private. This campground is very difficult to get reservations but would love to return and stay on the water again. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Motorhome.
Lovely beaches on both ends. Also a nice butterfly trail and a trail to the original old highway 1 trestle bridge which affords great photo opts. Fishing, snorkeling all available at this park.
You are also only an hour drive to Key West.

The only real downside here is the location of the dump station. As mentioned before, it is in the middle of the CG next to the bath house. A lot of people were driving to the bath house and going thru the dump station the wrong way to get there. Also, parked cars made getting into the dump station tight. Our site just had new stone put down and it was large and sharp edged. Walking on it hurt the feet. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Motorhome.
If time permits, the day trip out to Dry Tortugas NP is outstanding. They serve both breakfast and lunch on the high speed ferry.

Absolutely beautiful! We camped in site 15 Buttonwood on the water. That was the best snorkeling spot in the whole park! I would have given it a 10 if they had sewer hookups. Also, the dump station should be located on the road leaving the park, not in the middle of the campground in my opinion. The poor people camped next to it have to put up with the smell and engine noise of those using the facilities. I would not recommend using the campsites near the cabins. Those sites are extremely small and the bugs are horrible. The other campsites on the beach are nice and tucked into the shade which you will need in that heat. I can see why it is so hard to get a site here. We lucked out and booked a week when someone else cancelled. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Roads are very tight pulling a 30' trailer and backing into the sites. Sites are very close together, however, you hardly know that your neighbors are there due to dense vegetation between sites. Water service is at the front of the site and for every other space is on the wrong side of the campsite. Bathrooms showed their age, but were tolerable though the showers could use a good cleaning with bleach to get the old mold discoloration off. Beaches are very small compared to what I expected from the brochures. Of course the main attraction here is the location. It is 37 miles from Key West and all the activities along the way. I definitely recommend the snorkeling trip to Looe Key that you can take directly from the park. The staff at the park were all extremely friendly and helpful as well. If this park were located anywhere else I would probably give it a lower rating, but of course it is all about location in the Keys. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Tough to expect more from a state park. Although the sites were gravel, and a bit tight for a 39' RV with 5 slides, we were able to make it with room to spare. Each site is separated by a thick hedge on 3 sides, so you get a pretty private setting. There is a marina / snack shop. Because of the way the park is situated, you can swim/snorkel even if the wind is blowing 20 mph. If too windy, walk over to the other side of the island where it is calm. For the most part the campsites are protected. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We loved our stay here, love the location, close to Key West. Site 25 was large and has a nice waterfront area with beautiful sunsets. The water connection is located front left side (hose crossed site). The electric is located front right, we needed an extension cord. 50 amp power was good. The bath house was extremely clean and nice. We put Plexiglas panels in our screen door to keep the no-seeums out. Bug spray is a must. It's hard to get reservations but don't give up, it was worth the being denied every morning at 7:59:59 for a month plus to spend a week in paradise!

Paid FL Senior rate which made for a great value in the keys. We had a nice wide and level 50 amp site with water. Sites vary in size quite a bit here and no sewer sites are available. Traffic noise is not as bad as some reviews indicate. It gets pretty quiet late at night and we could hear the ocean. No TV reception, but Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. For great happy hour prices and food specials try Springer's on Big Pine Key. It is the best bet around and they have the NFL package and great people there.

Bugs, bugs, bugw!!! especially the no see ums are terrible, we came away bit to death!!! Also the seaweed on the beaches was real bad. Other than that it was fantastic, a "must go" at least once in a lifetime. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Of the four Florida State parks in the Keys, this is our least favorite, though it does have a nice beach. Waterfront sites are very tough to snag, and even though we had one which had to be reserved well in advance, you are looking at and hearing the Overseas highway bridge. Interior sites near the two big dumpsters, bathrooms, and dump station are smaller and the smell from the dumpster is overpowering when it is hot. Can't figure out why they would put the dump station and especially the dumpster in the middle of the campground. Extremely busy on the weekend, with a lot of day use people. We will stick to the other three parks from now on. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Only stayed here one night, but what a beautiful park! Wish I could have stayed longer, but was traveling & had reservation in northern FL. The people were so very nice. I plan to come back again if I can get reservations. I was lucky enough to get a cancellation. This is a must see state park & in the keys!!

This campground offers sites with water and electric hookups for RVs and dumping station in the Buttonwood area and primitive no-hookup tent campsites facing Sandspur Beach. All campsites offer far more space and privacy than any of the commercial ones that we saw on the main Route 1 highway. Charcoal grills and picnic tables are included. A few Buttonwood RV campsites face the sea, but they also face the busy Route 1 bridge. There is a small boat harbor and even boat slips for two or three campsites. Bathhouses are clean and reasonably modern. There is no coin-op laundry, but a washing sink is provided. The camp store sells gifts, no groceries or camping supplies but runs a snack bar. Free Wi-Fi is provided at the dive shop, adjacent to the store. Cellphone signals on Bahia Honda Key are poor. The Silver Palm Nature Trail is one the best I've seen. Natural beauty is everywhere.

This was our first visit to BHSP. If you are approaching the Keys from I-95, get onto the FL Turnpike as soon as possible. Miami traffic is busy. Be prepared for a unique geographical area. The campground is quite small and space is at a premium. Traffic noise from the bridge can be bothersome. Surprisingly we learned that the beaches on the Keys are quite small relative to those in most parts of Florida. However, swimming and kayaking are popular at the park. Marathon and Big Pine have tons of restaurants. Key West is less than an hour's drive. The tram ride there is the best way to get introduced to Key West.

This park sits on a fantastic piece of waterfront real estate, that is a small undeveloped island aside from the park. Like most FL state parks it is on the rustic side and is meant for the outdoor lovers. If you are after perfect paved sites, planned activities, fancy bathrooms, and fully appointed clubhouses you will be disappointed. If you like beaches, boating, fishing, snorkeling, hiking and tropical settings this is for you. The bathrooms were clean and the electric worked fine. We made use of the onsite boat ramp and marina which is protected and calm. If you look at the map you see the bridge is very close by and since sound travels very well across water, you will hear traffic. It is a small price to pay for such a beautiful spot.

Great campground. Stayed in site 43, a corner lot with a view of the water. Campground is near US 1, so some highway noise is heard. Seaweed was in, smell initially bad, but it grows on you. Fishing was good, but launching kayak on Atlantic side tough with the rotting seaweed. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We had a waterfront site but because water hookup is on one side of site at front and electrical is on the other side at the back, we were unable to drive in to put water view in right spot. The 50 amp electrical hookup was "compromised" and a visit to the ranger station brought a volunteer to fix it. Worked fine the rest of our visit. Showers were clean until the weekend when some slobs were camping. Highway noise was intrusive but didn't disturb sleep. Big rigs need to check size carefully, since there is no standard size. This is a wonderful park to use as a base for visiting Key West, about 30 miles south. Key deer can be seen around sunset on Big Pine Key. Even if sewer hookup was available this would not be a favorite park. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Motorhome.Undo
