Full disclosure. We own an Rv lot at Venture Out, and obviously we like it well enough to have purchased one.

There is free Wi-Fi, but it's at the clubhouse only.

As far as pets. Two pets are allowed. Cats are NOT allowed to roam, and will be trapped and removed, so BEWARE. I don't think the park adequately explains this to people and I want people to know not to let your cat outside.

Dogs are not allowed to walk with you around the property. You can walk from your lot to the gate and outside the park, to where there is a dog walk area along the main road.

Yes, the sites are small. It's the Keys and land is very expensive. Some RV sites may be difficult to maneuver your RV into, so be aware when booking a site. There are "dry lots" and waterfront lots. The ocean view sites are spectacular, but can be pretty windy. The canal lots can have spectacular ocean front views, or views of the seawall behind you. Not all are the same. Be aware when booking a site.

The park rules state only one motorized vehicle per site (other than a motor home). If your RV and vehicle don't fit on the lot, you have to park the vehicle in the overflow lot. BEWARE of this when you reserve a site. The overflow is $2-$4 a night depending on the size.

New rules effective may 15, 2015. Venture Out has become so popular and many people spend their entire winters here, bringing all their toys, which include extra cars, motorcycles, boats, cargo trailers. This has resulted in a parking nightmare. The community Board of Directors has mandated the parking rules be enforced. Effective now, you will only be allowed to park in the overflow lot, a maximum of two weeks in any 6 month period. We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We have a boat so our favorite thing to do is to go out to Looe Key Wildlife Sanctuary. It's about 8 miles offshore on the Atlantic side. Snorkeling and diving is great.

When it's too windy to boat (which it often is) we love to visit Key West. It's a crazy and fun town and you will always see something interesting. Be sure to watch the nightly sunset celebration on Mallory Square.

We stayed at VO96. This is waterfront RV spot. We backed into the spot as we have a large rear window and it was like being right on the water. The spot was large enough for 40' fifth wheel and large pick up parked next to it if you back into the spot. If you park parallel, there would not have been enough room for truck. Did not have TV service or wi-fi. Have to use a satellite dish for tv. We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

No one has mentioned the bad aspects of this park.

When making your reservation, be sure you can completely fit on the lot you are renting. If your vehicle sits even a foot past the curb, you will need to put it in the storage lot for $4 a night. Some of the lots used to have old campers on them with Florida rooms. The concrete pad of the Florida rooms are left behind when they remove them to make an RV lot. The problem with this is, today's larger RVs are too wide to sit along side the patio and not hang over on to the neighbors lot line on the other side. Be sure to ask all these questions during your initial phone conversations.

If you are a boater, the locations is great! We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Motorhome.

This is mainly a mobile home park with permanent residents. They have some RV spots available. It is on the water with good boating access. They have a nice pool here. It is convenient to Key West. The monthly rates are reasonable. There are lots of rules, and they are pet tolerant, but not really pet friendly. We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects monthly rate. This was our second Winter here. We camped here 3 months. It was great again. Large site with a 35 foot dock right on the site. Lots of activities in the Winter to keep you busy and 30 minutes from either Key West or Marathon We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is a first-class resort with all these amenities and more: clubhouse with ping pong table and free Wi-Fi, oceanfront swimming pool, hot tub, tennis, bocce, playground, on-site store and marina, and deep-water canals. We especially enjoy bicycling around the park and lying by the pool overlooking the ocean. Sites are spacious and clean, and activities abound. Almost every morning there is free coffee in the clubhouse and a variety of games to be played with fellow campers and residents. Very kid friendly park, very safe, gated entry and 24/7 security. We stayed in a high-rise mobile home (there are several such permanent homes in the park) but there are plenty of spaces for RVs up to 40 ft long. We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Campground Cabin.

Large, private resort with mostly permanent type trailers and homes with RV lots scattered throughout the resort. Many lots are waterfront with man made channels coming in from the bay so you could dock your boat next to your lot. We didn’t use any of the facilities so nothing to report there. We spent most of our time in Key West and the surrounding area. We did see a very large boat launch with plenty of parking for resort guests. If fishing is your thing then this place is for you. The lots are small and would not recommend this for anything over 40’. We camped here in a 40’ motor home and would not come again because of the small lots. Still, this is a 5 star resort. Note: There is a one time fee of $53 paid at the gate that goes to the association when you check in. Our nightly rate of $48 for our week stay reflects that fee as part of the nightly rate. We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Motorhome.

We found this to be a lovely, well run park. It is well landscaped; everything is either paved or covered in pea gravel meaning NO coral dust, a big deal in the Keys. The rules are strict but we like a tightly run park. Unlike the other reviewer we had no problem with our two dogs. You can walk them to the gate and beyond, not just around the various streets. We had a canal spot and it was simply heaven. We've already booked for next year. We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Motorhome.

We had a wonderful extended stay here. We stayed 2 months on a non-waterfront site, but it was great. The site was huge and the neighbors friendly. All the sites are individually owned so there is a huge pride of ownership within the park, resulting in a very clean/nice park. Other reviews we read mentioned strict pet policies. This is true, but we did not have a problem having our puppy there, we just had to walk him towards the exit when we walked him. The pool is fantastic as is the hot tub. There are picnic tables right on the water, weekly dinners and bingo and countless other activities. We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Motorhome.

Dog owners beware. When we called and made our reservation we were told this was a dog friendly park. When we checked in we were given the rules, which stated the dogs could not even walk on the roads of the RV park. You were required to put your dog in the car and drive it out of the campground to find a place for it to go potty. Some residents did not follow the rules. We spoke with one lady who was staying at the park for 2 months and she had been told she was absolutely forbidden to walk her dog in the court where she lived. Another resident suggested she run her dog down the main road to get it out of the park. This was an old lab that couldn't even walk fast. Our block had a leader and he stopped in right after we arrived to make sure we knew the other rules. The spaces in the park are very close together which is probably common for private parks in this area. It was well maintained and had a lot of amenities but most residents spent the winter in it and were not very hospitable. We would not stay here again. We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Motorhome.

We recently spent a week in a place called Venture Out Resort in Cudjoe Key, Florida. We were in our motorhome and rented a pad on a canal. We could have kept a boat on our seawall, if we were lucky enough to own one. This place has it all; beautiful swimming pool and hot tub, tennis bocce, store and marina with ramp, clean showers and laundromat. Too many amenities to list. They also have many activities during the season. We did not have time to participate in many this time, but will definitely be back! Another plus, being a mile off Rte 1, it's quiet . It's only 23 miles from Key West. We rented from the park realty, Dolberry Realty. 305-745-2600. We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Motorhome.
