It's been a few years since we stayed here. The first site they had saved for us was a "bastard sites," which might be described as two sites made from one original site. They are very tight and the plumbing and electrical connections are in odd locations. Our sewer connection was nearly under my right rear wheels at the first site, and directly beneath the coach at the second site. (both impossible).

Customer service was unusual, but after breaking the ice, we felt we had established a good rapport. Probably will not return as things have changed for the worse at this old landmark park/marina. No trash pick up. Long walk to laundry and showers. Poorly located connections especially lower Sidney Lane sites. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

Check in was rather tedious with requests for insurance and registration for the trailer and a copy of driver's license. Never had this request before. I suspect because of it being a marina for large yachts, the facility has to be secure per US Coast Guard regulations. Of course the reason given was corporate requirements. Camp sites are extremely crowded, right on top of other campers with little room to park the tow vehicle. FHUs at each site but no picnic table, fire pits or grills. We had a water front spot which was laughable because we were so crowded we couldn't even see the docks. This is the one and only time we will ever stay here. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

Staff was challenged in speaking broken English,or at least staff working the day we were there. There is deposit for gate key 20.00 cash,deposit for shower key 3.00 cash. you have to leave during the office hours or you dont get the deposit back. Showers,pool,laundry are all very dated. Sites are on top of each other,park is in need of alot of improvements they stay full because of their location. I would only recommend for a overnight stays I will not stay there again, I will hit a parking lot before i stay there. It is hard for me to write a review like this but it needs to be said to let rv ers know. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

Biggest attraction to this RV Park Marina is the location. Its just off I-95, near the airport, and located on Marina Mile which is heart of the marine industry in Fort Lauderdale. I am a full timer working in the area and they offer monthly rates that include power, water, sewer, and WiFi in places.

Some sites, especially for smaller RV's are close together. Most suprising is that the waterfront sites, are larger and offer the most amazing views next to 80-100' yachts tied up along the canals.

They have 2 bath areas but most here are in larger rigs and do not use them. A large laundry room is near the office and a recreation building with pool, is in the center of the whole marina. Its a good value for the money and somewhat hidden. Its not really a vacation spot unless you want to live cheap and stay in Ft. Lauderdale. Overall good value and its clean. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

Check-in lady was more concerned with cashing out at the end of day, and arguing with someone in the back, than dealing with the new customer. Got a fair site for 3 weeks, then had to move as long term past tenant had arrived for my spot. Went to very packed main road sites - one in front of another sites. If they took out all these overlapping sites, would have 80 less in park. Park use to have permanent travel trailers with a Florida room. All are gone now, so your patio is a large cement block. water has gone off 4 times during stay. Coaches have knocked over the water connections, or the main pipes have burst. Wi-Fi is very iffy. have to be within 100 feet of rec hall or can't use. Even then you can loose signal or the internet. Why don't they put in about 4 more repeater stations than all the park would have good Wi-Fi. Many of the electrical boxes along the docks do not work. There was a large 100 amp electrical cord across the dock path. Easy for any of us to trip on it. So boats leave. Some docks are in dangerous condition. Pool was not always heated. Month rent was 25% more than in Texas, with 200% less amenities and organized activities. We camped at Yacht Haven Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
