We stopped at Boardwalk park in February, the peak month in this part of Florida, without a reservation. We were given the one spot left and were happy to get it since it was getting late. I found the management to be very friendly and accommodating. However: the park was pretty bad. It was VERY crowded with snowbirds and the campers in the area of the park we stayed in, were definitely not well maintained. Our 35' class A isn't real large, but it was difficult to maneuver it into our campsite, with the roads and sites so small. Our campsite was directly beside the intersection of two busy roads outside the campground and the noise was relentless all night. On top of that, the cost seemed very high for the value received, but again, this is peak season. The staff appeared to be contentious about keeping the park clean, but the overall lack of maintenance in the park was apparent. For example, my sewer hookup had two broken pieces of concrete covering it and my water was buried someplace else. I didn't hook up to either, but I did hook up to electric which was in a small box (without circuit breakers or on/off switch) that was located 6 inches off the ground and was very difficult to access. Considering the park's location and ability to attract campers, I think they could do a lot better. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We were very disappointed in our stay here. We came in late and were surprised by the number of permanent RV's and mobile homes. It had a very trailer park feel. The gentleman who lived permanently in his RV had to move his truck from our spot before we could back in. The site given to us was tight and not well suited for a 38' rig. Permanent residents were unfriendly and it was extremely noisy. We chose to leave early and move to a different RV park. The only good thing I can say is that the staff was friendly and even tried to get us a refund for the day we didn't use. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Homestead itself seemed to have a run down feel. I would suggest staying either inside the Everglades at a campground or finding a different town nearby.

Also, Flamingo inside the Everglades was very run down.

This is good for an overnight stay only. It is a trailer park. People are nice but roads in park are narrow. All back-in spots. Park on grass. Not easy if you get there late. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The facilities were rundown and the roads were very narrow. The pool and laundry were dirty. They had nice landscaping with bushes and trees between the sites. Many of permanent trailers were very rundown and in need of repair. It is called a resort but it is actually a trailer park with a few RV spots. It was nice to have your garbage picked up each day at your site. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Motorhome.

PPA Rate $21.00. If arriving after 5PM, make sure you get the gate code when you make your reservation. The CG is mostly mobile units. The park is for the most part clean and quite except for the road noise to the rear of the property. Our site in the 900's was not level and really not suited for a 40. Many low hanging branches, especially backing into our site. Good for an overnight stay. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We very much liked our tree-shaded site on grass with a concrete patio. This is a mature, friendly park, with a lot of diversity, permanent and long time residents; as well as transients such as ourselves. It was quiet. The price was excellent for the location and amenities. Wi-Fi was sketchy during waking hours. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park, but VERY narrow streets that make backing in very difficult. Streets are all paved which is nice. Gated so that security is good. Good wifi. Extremely nice and helpful staff. We would stay here again. Price cited reflects Passport America rate. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The park is in need of care. The sites are small and hard to get into. There are a lot of permanent residents and the snow birds are not welcoming to strangers. The park has over 150 stray cats wondering around and if you like to listen to cats fighting at night, this is the place for you. Homestead itself is a very nice place and is close to a lot of attractions and a short drive to Key Largo and Everglades National park. We could only get 1 TV as cable has to be purchased for one month. We would check the other RV parks in the area prior to booking again. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Needs work. Sites are small and lots of cats around. Many permanent sites and the residents are not friendly. The pool and pool furniture needs cleaning. No cable or Wi-Fi. It is close the the Everglades and Key Largo. Will not stay there again. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is an overrated "trailer park" with many "live ins" beyond winter. Stray cats running around everywhere, kids running around in streets and through sites. Sewer hookup was at least 8" off the ground making walking the hose necessary to drain. Getting into the site was tight in a 39' RV - had to have one person move their truck from in front of their trailer (permanent). Very disappointed in the park and the area was not very good either. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Motorhome.

As mentioned earlier this is a manufactured home park with some spaces for RV's. This is a large park that is kept clean and neat. The cable TV and Wi-Fi you have to pay extra for. Where we were, the Wi-Fi signal was very weak. Verizon MiFi works fine. Getting into our site was tight but there was plenty of room once we were in. I would recommend this place as a base to explore the everglades and maybe a few of the older attractions around the area. The place is safe, generally clean, and adequate. This is urban RV camping. If I come to the area again I will try to plan ahead so we don't have to stay here again, but if you get shut out at other sites, this works fine.

There is only a few positive things I can say about this place. The manager was very helpful staying after his shift was over, to park us. It is also a gateway to the Everglades and Keys. Other than these, it was one of the worst weeks of my life, and a living hell. We were edged up 10' from a major noisy road. I was a stranger in a French Canadian community that seemed over-powered by rudeness and arrogance. The motorcycle rule (not to ride them in or out) was not enforced. The restroom cleanliness was mediocre at best. There was trash lining the streets. I did, however find the multitudes of feral cats running around endearing. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park is a Trailer Park/RV Park so you can be right across from a permanent resident in a Mobile Home. The office personal were very helpful & informative. The park is very clean and well maintained. They have a nice pool area, shuffle board area right by the laundry room which operates not with coins, but with a card that must be picked up in the office and then filled outside the office, much like a cash card. 2 issues of concern: You must drive through many mobile homes to get to the RV section which can be disconcerting at night if you are a late arrival and need to find your spot without assistance. They DO have a FERAL cat community which they have worked with the SPCA on, but we did walk outside in the morning and find cats on our picnic table. The manager addressed the situation by thoroughly explaining that it was the most humane way to handle the cat problem in their area. You'll need to decide if this is a big problem for you personally. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is older with a lot of permanent residents. It was clean and quiet. We called a month in advance to reserve a site and were given a confirmation. We arrived on Sunday as planned. As we pulled down the road to the campground we noticed that it was "gated" access. We were not given an access code. We had no way into the park. We had to park our coach and attached toad in a closed restaurant about a block away and walk back to the gate. A resident was entering and gave us the gate code. After walking back to our coach we drove back to the entrance, entered the code and proceeded to the registration office. The office was closed. Luckily, a campground employee lived on site and happened to see us. He directed us to a site for the night. We left the next morning around 8:00 a.m., we stopped by the office to pay for the site. Again, there was no one there. We called later in the day and gave the desk person our credit card information. Nice campground, poor office help. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a Mobile Home community with RV sites in select areas. We stopped here via PPA. The RV Manager is very friendly and helpful. The Mobile Home residents are less than friendly. The children in the park run hither and yon with no regard or respect of privacy. I had my rig set up with awning out and sunscreen in place and the kids were running under my awning, across my site from one mobile home behind to another across the street. There were as many as 6 or 7 at times, running back and forth. Based on advice from the RV Manager, I kept my bicycle racks locked and didn't leave anything else outside when I was off site. Sites are grass for the RV, paved (crumbling) patios and parking for the pickup or toad. Water and Septic were a reach. It took 30 feet of water line and 20 feet sewer to hook up. Old growth trees over almost every site make parking difficult with high profile rigs. There are plenty of air TV stations available. The trees overhanging the roads require caution when you move your rig. The RV Manager told us the owners have scheduled relocation and upgrades of the utilities in the RV sites for sometime during this off season. For a long term layover this would not be a bad stop. The portion where most RV parking is located, was being paved during our stay. Access is gate controlled, but the code is generic and apparently never changes. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
