Stayed here for its location. The marina/yachts were the ONLY thing it has going for it. Staggered sites make it crowded and on top of each other. Campground NOT kept up. Needs major site, WiFi, cable improvements. Site expense not turned back for site, campground improvement. Staff was rude and un-concerning. Never stay here again! We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit beaches of Ft. Lauderdale and shopping.

My husband and I think this park is wonderful. Some of the less than optimal things being described in previous reviews are true, like sites being close together(this is to be expected when you are in a populated beach town), part of it floods(normal experience after rainstorms in the South), can't turn around at end of culdesac(most parks have little challenges like this). We feel the good outweighs any small inconveniences you may have when camping, like beautiful flora and fauna(tropical trees, flowers and lots of wildlife to watch in the middle of a city - birds of all shapes and sizes, iguanas and manatee), nice and helpful neighbors and let's not forget, you can be on the water or at least right by it with beautiful yachts surrounding you. It really feels like a haven. We stayed there for a month and I literally smiled every time I pulled through my gated community. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

This is the worst RV park we have ever stayed in, from the staff on site to the facilities to the reservation keeping. We were one of three rigs traveling together, two Class As and one 41' fifth wheel. We made reservations 9 months in advance and asked for the three rigs to be together. We called to confirm sites a week in advance. When we arrived, they had us spread all over the park because people that were in the sites reserved for us wanted to stay longer, so the staff let them. Then when we arrived in the fifth wheel, the staff sent us to the end of a cul de sac to a site that was meant for Class As as a pull in site. There was nowhere to turn around so we had to back a fifth wheel all the way out. As far as facilities goes, the only way to access the wifi was at the Rec center, so there was no wifi signal to connect to at your sites. The pool was nasty so there was no place to swim. At the sites, there were no picnic tables.

The staff at check out was slow and unorganized, resulting in a line of rigs trying to get out of the park with only one lane open because they allowed cars to park in the second lane. That left everyone waiting hot-tempered as those in the front were trying to check out with a slow staff.

The park sites are tighter that a tick. RVs are so tight in the sites, there is no where to park cars, resulting in cars and trucks being parked in the road. This makes it very difficult to tow through and park at site.

Stay away from this place, there is absolutely nothing good to say about it! We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites that are available for short term RV's are limited to very tight narrow sites that offer little or no shade and make it difficult to extend slide outs without striking utility pedestals and opening cargo bay doors. The restroom facilities are very old and dirty. The shower rooms are invested with roaches and need immediate attention and replacement. I was told by a long term resident of the park that park management "has not invested a dime in upgrades" since he has been living here. I must agree that the park overall, is not up to Good Sam standards and should loose this certification. I certainly do not recommend staying here. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

Absolutely terrible. The first part of the park is flooded for literally days on end after it rains. No actions have been taken from what I see to improve this. Maybe a sump pump would be nice, but that is clearly not going to happen. Multiple parts of dock are closed off with caution tape- they are in disrepair & falling apart. Laundry facilities are tidy, yet 1/2 of the dryers are broken so we will just go to laundromat in the future. The spaces are literally on top of each other. We were interested in staying for the winter, but will be leaving ASAP. Roads inside the park are the worst I have seen in any Ft. Lauderdale rv parks. This park is not inexpensive - but the $ is clearly not going towards fixing anything. I've seen better roads in Mexico. The hot tub has orange caution tape- has been drained & apparently is also in a state of disrepair. Recreation room with wifi is locked 100% of the time, so if you want wifi, plan on driving over & sitting in your car or sitting on the ground in the sun. I would strongly suggest exploring other options. There are other parks on the water in the area that do not flood & are not packed in like sardines. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

Friendly staff upon arrival. Pool looks well maintained, but we did not use it. Bathrooms and showers are clean but are very outdated and well used looking. Lots of grass. All sites seem to have a concrete pad next to your unit parking site. The interior roads are quite settled and bumpy and are due for resurfacing but still are serviceable and probably helps keep the speeds down. Location is great. Also a nice board walk around the marina area. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Some of the previous comments are true, except that the bathrooms are dated, but very clean. Each shower house has two complete bathrooms including the shower. The roads are a little rough, but no potholes. Some sites need to be repaved, but the raised cement pads are nice. It is important to check out your campsite before taking possession since some campsites are smaller than others and some roads make it impossible to turn around or back your rig in. Check out where the bathrooms are in relation to your campsite. There are some double-stacked sites that may make for overcrowded conditions in the winter when the park is full. In May when we were there, it wasn't a problem. When getting off the highway, the entrance to the park is RIGHT THERE, so be prepared to turn in immediately. There is a very nice, inexpensive ($1.00) laundry. The campground is convenient to shopping on Los Olas Blvd., the Riverwalk restaurants and bars, and Ft. Lauderdale Beach. The campground is surrounded by canals and the New River which makes for a beautiful location. The staff is friendly and works hard to keep the place clean. We stayed 3 nights in our 30' travel trailer and would definitely come back again. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

Park is old and in need of basic maintenance. Hot tub is closed. Roads are in need of major re-surfacing. Staff was extremely friendly. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

An older park, but the only place to be if you want to be near Ft. Lauderdale airport and the art museum. A bit on the tired side. Probably considered a luxury trailer park in 1980, or whenever it was built. Real tight turns and sites for a big rig, but it was not too full, so not a total problem. Would not like to be in a 45 here in winter! Anyway, seemed a bit high after paying less at Bluewater Key. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

Staff was very busy when we came in. We were especially concerned when one of the staff took our credit card into another room for a very long time and answered several phone calls before returning our credit card to us. The bathrooms are just marked "toilet" rather than men's room or women's room and there was also a long wait to use the ones near us. They were not very clean. Our spot was small and we were parked next to a 5th wheel whose owner parked his pickup between his rig and ours because there wasn't any other place for him to park it. It was a challenge to get our small motorhome into our spot. We probably won't stay here again. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

We camped here in 2000 and it was a very nice park. We stopped using it because they did not allow large dogs (we had a golden Lab). After she passed we went back again with our Jack Russels and saw other large dogs in the CG. When we questioned the management about it they said people sneak them in. We also didn't like how run down the park had become. Some of the people camping here were very rude. There was a party in the pool one night after it closed and the people (French Canadians) had glass beer bottles in the pool. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

The most poorly run campground I have ever been to. Nasty office staff. Place is a mess. Part RV park and part boat yard. Boat repair going on all the time and trucks park on your site. Repairmen cut through your site all the time. Also place is over run with ducks that do their business on your deck. Would never come back. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

The park is in very poor condition! Overgrown,dirty, and just generally in disrepair. Most of the sites are long term residents. For the money you get no TV, no Wi-Fi, and a poor quality site. We would never stay here again. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

The entrance to the park is concealed behind large trees. We missed the entrance and drove into the exit road of the park and had a hard time turning back into the entrance road. Park is well kept and the sites are very large. The electric (30AMP) was erratic and would not maintain the necessary voltage to run our air conditioner. The park maintainer manager was very helpful with this problem. The noise level at night was very bad what with the jet aircraft flying overhead as well as freeway noise. We will NOT stay in this park again. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.
