Camped here two weeks in February 2016 and LOVED it! The campground is an older property and well maintained. Beautiful new pool area, Wifi lounge, two small (non swimming) beaches great for launching kayaks, or just spending a lazy afternoon at the beach. (Boat launch also!) The people that run the place, and all the staff could not have been more helpful. My vehicle sat for all the two weeks that I stayed here, because we rode our bikes everywhere. Groceries near by, Kmart and many other stores in the plaza 1/4 mile away. Bike trails run all along the business section, so you can explore and shop from your bike. LOVE Key Largo and LOVE this Kampground!!! - JeffKruzic

We stayed here for 2 weeks and were able to use a tent site because we were very small plus had no A/C (park's rule). This was a lot cheaper for us. The interior roads would be tight for anyone with a large trailer. The tent sites are pea gravelled and all have table and bbq grill (no ground fires permitted). Bathhouses (2) are clean and well maintained. Pool is lovely with new decking and chairs. Beach area (2) are small and not for swimming, but can launch kayak/canoe. Activity room for dances/potlucks etc. This park has mostly permanent units of which some are rentals to snowbirds. Chickens roam freely (very cool!). Great location. Security at night. We would definitely return. - littleleftie

Pricey in the winter months. The campground is clean and has medium to large lots. Many are shaded. There is a sandy beach where kayaks can be launched easily. The campground is not directly on the ocean. There is a barrier island between it and the ocean. There are many permanent residents who keep their lots up nicely. Bicycle paths are close by and a Publix food store and KMart is within walking distance. About a mile from John Pennekamp Park. Good Wi-Fi connection, and cable TV is part of the deal at no extra charge. Staff is wonderful and accommodating. Gated entrance with security guard. - urlookingood

We have stayed here twice but will not stay again.
Campground is old and needs a lot of work. Sites are right on top of each other! While I do understand that RV Sites in Florida are "small", the sites here are "smaller".
Majority of "Campers" are either "Seasonal" or "Residents". - Mcpowder

This is a very friendly campground and the manager, is terrific. The sites are extremely close together, it's basically a trashy looking campground, extremely difficult to access the highway or move in and out of the campground. We very much enjoyed the other campers and the view of the water. It is not a place I will be running back to but if in the area, I would not have a problem staying there again. - Sunshine8363

This campground was good for a weekend get away, with the ocean view it was nice. However the park itself was a bit to noisy for me. - Chris B.

Although their ads tend to exaggerate the offerings, it is still a nice place to stay in Key Largo. The sun drenched beach described is really a manmade patch about 20 feet wide with 2 chairs on it. The spaces are very large and can accommodate the boats and trailers which many seem to have. Hookups are excellent with one exception. Each has a 50, 30 and 110 outlet along with 2 water spigots and sewer connection. The only problem was the cable not working. When asked they said something about a storm and a bad relationship with the vendor and they would get us a 100 foot cord to hook into the next site. After repeated calls they never came through with anything. Fortunately satellite reception was good to watch the olympics. Story is after only 3 years they may develop into a hotel and resort. Would stay again, but it is pricey... - BellasRV

Imagine a huge white gravel parking lot with diagonal hedges in rows. If you are not in one of the 14 waterfront sites, you will be camping on this gravel between these hedges. The waterfront area is well landscaped and lovely. The pool overlooks the Buttonwood Sound. When we were there, both the pool water and the air were 84 degrees, not very refreshing. Our campsite was an end unit where the road turned left in front of us. Because the units were set out on a diagonal, the right side of our site was barely long enough to accommodate our car, while the left was longer than our 30 foot motor home. Knowing now that the park is being closed and turned into condos (or hotel depending on who you talk to), the park has a very temporary look to it. Outside of the waterfront (which is lovely) this is just a lot of gravel. If you are considering this before it closes in September 2016 - get a waterfront site or look someplace else. - ShoreXplorers

Too bad this place is closing after the season. I thought it was a cute place. - tonymaldonado

Tight, Tight, Tight. Pulled in the entrance when I arrived just to find out my campsite required us to come in the exit. Friendly people helped us get into a very tight campsite. Overall the park is very clean. The the main road was recently paved. Beware of the entrance it has concrete walls that have a 10 foot opening. - Rusty S

Stayed four nights near the water, gulf side. Small campground, great staff. Boat ramp, pier, large covered picnic/gazebo. Great spot for watching sunsets. Clean campground/beach. Saw a manatee and dolphins. Stayed in the A row between two permanent campers at the end. The one that was there woke us up at 2am banging on something with their friends, didn't leave until 3:30. Had to put the ac on to cover the noise. Several times during the day their music was so loud we had to move down to the gazebo to have a normal conversation. Should of moved after the first incident. Would go back if they weren't there, or maybe stay in the C row away from them. This could be a great place to chill. Met some really nice people there. Nice central location in Key Largo. - Kamper123

The park is very tight, which includes both the roads and the sites. The park is old and funky with a noticeable lack of street appeal. Once inside the wall, you see that there is regular maintenance going on and there is nothing to fear. The pavilion on the water is nice; as are the residents, many whom are snowbirds. Note, because the spaces are small, you are subjected to your neighbor's habits. We were sited next to chain smokers and couldn't ever open our windows on the left side. Park management is very nice and they do a great job getting you in and out of the tight park. The internet service is surprisingly fantastic! - Maxine and Cinder

This CG is a gated resort of 98% permanent units. From a bicycle ride-around, I'd say that there are only about a half-dozen available "camping" lots. Reservations highly recommended. Day use visitors are mostly there for the marina to launch boats. Staff are nice but oriented to their long-term residents. Lots of people-noise, particularly loud music. Available sites are level, gravel with FHU/30/50 with a concrete patio. No fire rings. Sites are very tight and roadways are narrow - no pull-thrus. Parking my 40' fiver was challenging and I was on a corner, giving me some wiggle room. Nice pool but no available car parking (golf cart parking only). I recommend bicycles. We were in site 323, back-in, right on the water with breath-taking sunset vistas - well worth the parking hassle. - StephenK

This campground is NOT a campground. It's a colony of 5th wheels parked permanently with enough space to park a boat or a car by their side. Most people have converted this space into some sort of living space that varies from carports to tiled and permanent structures. The property is divided by a canal lined with boats. The place is tight, over crowded, and incredibly noisy since playing music VERY LOUDLY in the RVs, boats, and monster trucks that cruise the narrow roads night and day seem to be the main pastime.
So if you come all the way to Key Largo looking for relaxing days, lovely sunsets and gentle tropical nights, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.
If you want to party, scream instead of talk, and pretty much experience what it is to live in a foreign colony, then you will love it.
Whatever you do, stay away from site 325. Even party people must sleep at some time, but this people play think they are running a 24/7 salsa club and the speakers are kept at their capacity all day long.
We were looking forward to enjoying the sunset. There is no place reserved for this purpose.
It is not a dog friendly place. You have to pay $5.00 fee per pet and there is not one inch of green space for the dog to do its thing. - Catalina W

The site's are very tight because of the patio being in the middle of the site. The roads are too narrow to try to back into the sites because of the many permanent residents parking ever where. Loud music played until the wee hours of the morning. The pool however was very large and nice. - Traveling Fool

Campgrounds in the Keys are pricey, so snagging a site in a state park is like winning the lottery. John Pennekamp Coral Reef SP is VERY busy with a near constant coming and going of campers. The sites are full hookups. Sites are close with vegetation between them and to the rear. The park staff provides nature walks. The visitor center has a small aquarium that is a nice surprise. While there are some trails to walk among the mangroves, this park has a lot of concrete and pavement. While I'm glad I stayed there, I will search for other parks in south Florida that offer more space and give a me a feeling of being in nature rather than such an urban environment. - SunStar203

Beautiful state park with lots of outdoor activities. Short walk to kayak launch on Largo Sound with mangrove trails and access to the ocean. Swimming and snorkeling a slightly longer walk away. On the down side, campsites are fairly narrow with minimal screening between sites. It's Florida's most popular state park so expect a LOT of day-use people, especially on weekends. - BigPa

The camping sites are very close with no views. The park is very busy with boaters, folks going on snorkleing and diving tours. There is a glass bottom boat tour which we took but the ocean was rough the day we went out and we saw very little on the tour. We had spent the previous three nights at Bahia Honda State Park in the lower keys and this park was a bit of a let down after visiting such a jewel park. - budolemiss

Weekly rate. This park is about location. Right at the entrance to the Florida Keys with access to the Keys without the price. The park is older but very pleasant. Restrooms and showers are well maintained and clean. The pool is elevated, heated and very well maintained. The clubhouse is large and much used for all types of activities. The Tiki Bar is unique and the drinks are good and reasonably priced. The sites are mostly grass but due to heavy rains this year many of them were mud, but the office had no problem with moving us to a grass site from our original muddy one. Everyone here was friendly and helpful. The only problem we had was the roads are very narrow and people parked their vehicles right on the edge of the road. I had to go around three times to get lined up on our site so I could get in. Also beware there are many mature trees with low limbs making it dangerous to get into and out of some sites with tall rigs. WiFi was very spotty and due to the trees TV reception was restricted. I would stay here again when in the area. - digger2280

This is an old park, with narrow but passable roads. It's at the far south end of Florida. Great for going to the Everglades or the Keys. Sites are on grass. Some have concrete patios; ours didn't. WIFI is almost non-existent. When it worked, it was very slow. Park is very quiet. We had a pull-through - essential for our size with these narrow roads. Still, it was a nice place to stay and would stay here again. - DrM Traveler

We stayed for 2 nights over New Years Eve. Park is tightly packed with narrow spots and very narrow roads, making it difficult to get in and out. Had to ask the guest across from our spot to move his truck to make it possible for me to hitch up.
The site is on grass with a small concrete patio. There are many huge tree roots under the grass, making it impossible to put the stakes for the awning straps into the ground.
The picnic table was an old wooden thing that was completely deformed of age and the high humidity.
Great location with shopping and restaurants within 5 minutes from the park. - Jensvilhelm

Very large nice mobile home park with intermittent RV sites. Mile off Hwy 1. Paved roads with long level back-in grass sites with patios. OK for big rigs. Need to be self contained as no restrooms or showers. 24 hr security gate. No trees, good satellite, TV and cell signals, cable tv and free protected wi-fi. Large rec center and pool for residents. Park clean well maintained and staff helpful. Will stay there again. - Pepper Dan

This is a mobile home park with rv sites sprinkled in between the permanent homes. However, the mobile homes are well maintained with beautiful yards. The spaces are all back-ins with a lot of room. Each site has a concrete patio and picnic table. The park is gated with a security guard at all times. Utilities were good. However, the first site we were assigned to had no power to the pole. They moved us to another site. There is a cable cord which we asked about. The office told us all we needed to do is to hook it up. The cable did not work. This is a Passport America park that allows you to stay 6 days at this rate. This is a great place to stay to visit the Everglade, Biscayne, and the Keys. - The Griffins

We stayed here for one week while touring the Everglades and Keys. All residents we met were friendly and welcoming, especially at the non-denominational service held in the club house on Sunday morning. Utilities worked well and were well placed on our site. We felt safe walking around the park even at night. - Nomads_2

We stayed for an incredible price, $30 nightly. Assistant manager was very helpful and friendly. Gave us all kinds of directions to the keys and everglades. He even helped me with my computer, go figure. Bathrooms were newly tiled, even though we barely used them. - captain spoke

Campground is mostly full of permanent residents in camping units of various states of disrepair. Roads are fine. Transient area is a grassy field which is kept mowed . Utilities there are only 30 amp. Restrooms were marginally clean. Washer dryer worked well. Lots of aggressive barking dogs and feral cats. We will not stay here again. There is no nighttime security, gates are wide open, and we learned later that the park is near a very bad neighborhood. Our bikes were locked to our RV and during the night thieves cut through the bike cable locks and stole our two bikes. They also stole our neighbors bike. Park management did not warn us of this potential problem and when we reported the theft they stated that it was unusual to have 3 stolen at once. They were not surprised of the theft. - KathyAndJimB

Most horrible dirty park we were ever in. Grass was so high we could not even find the hookups. We should have left but had driven a long day and needed to get to the Keys, so we just dry camped and left early the next day. - coloradogirl42

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. - fruffiii

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. - MacFam

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. - Op2myst
