4 Parks near Key West, Florida
Nov 2015 - $73.00
Stayed almost three weeks in this lovely park. Two different sites, #16, a "canal" site, followed by #27, a "pool" site. Most popular sites are "open water" but there is usually a strong breeze on the open water side and so we prefer the more sheltered canal and pool sites. Our pool site couldn't have been nicer, upgraded with TWO flat screen TVs in its tiki and new furnishings! Just steps away from the pool. The pool is not large but adequate and never crowded. No activities to speak of while we were there in November. Received a 10% discount by reserving and paying by check in advance through Rita at bluewaterkey.net. Made a difference since we had a lengthy stay. Don't know if this discount applies during high season, which begins December 1. If you have dogs, there is a very attractive dog walk area in the center of the park. Also the area behind the pool sites along the canal is a good dog walking area and also equipped with poo bags and trash cans. However, there is no true "dog park" where dogs can go unleashed. To my mind, this is the best RV park in the Keys. - M&M

Very nice park. With a large fifth wheel getting into some of the lots can be challenging, but when you pull in they send people to assist directing you. Our lot wasn't waterfront but worked out perfect as it was breezy during our stay but we didn't really notice at our site. Facilities and staff are top notch. We will try to stay again and would recommend to any of our friends. - EWendlandt

This is a beautiful resort with nice level sites.. The resort is very clean and well managed.. Restrooms and showers are clean with lots of hot water, good cable but the wifi is slow.. Good cell signal, AT&T.. Our site was on the canal side the water front sites have great views if u can get one.. Plenty of room to maneuver our 36 ft mh.. Great place to relax under the tiki hut on most sites, close to a lot of great places to eat or seafood markets close buy your own and cook.. Would definitely stay again if in the area.. - smoky40

The average nightly rate we paid reflects the discount we received for staying three months. This is a very expensive place to stay considering the quality of the RV park. You are paying for for your proximity to downtown Key West (1o minute drive). On the positive side of things, the staff was very friendly and helpful, hookups were good, our site was level, WiFi was fair, and recycling services were provided. On the negative side of things, it is obvious that very little of the RV park revenue is reinvested into infrastructure. The site sizes reflect the reality of RV sizes from 30-40 years ago. If you have a big rig, maneuvering at Boyd's is very tricky. Grading and drainage is poor. When it rains, the sand sites and uneven access roads become a muddy mess with a lot of water that ponds for days. During out three month stay, they were trying to improve the WiFi but it improved to fair (at best). The WiFi system simply isn't robust enough to serve the number of campers at Boyd's. Recycling services were also implemented during our stay. The problem is that they don't have enough recycling bins and they were often overflowing by mid-week (they are only emptied once per week). Boyd's has a social activities coordinator, and she worked very hard to implement social experiences. The problem is that she was only one person and she had other responsibilities at the RV park. As a result, there weren't a lot of social activities and campers took it upon themselves to coordinate independent activities that did not include everyone staying at Boyd's. This led to the development of several cliques, and if you weren't in the clique you were left out.
Key West has some nice winter weather and some beautiful places, but given the price of Boyd's and the quality of the park, we most likely will not be overwintering here again. The experience did not justify the cost. There are much better values for overwintering in south Texas and southern California. - Byron Bailey

We spent two wonderful months in Key West this year - loving every minute of the spectacular weather. The wonderful Boyd's Staff makes every possible effort to ensure you enjoy the time spent in Paradise. Yes, the lots tend to be a bit small, and yes, the rate is a little pricey, but we know that going in - before each visit - and it hasn't detracted from our stay one bit.
Should one have the interest, activities abound within the park. Card games of all sorts, pot luck dinners, dominos, corn hole and many, many more events fill the calendar throughout the month.
For those who travel full time (as we do), deliveries arrived (either USPS or UPS) without hassle and placed in a section of the gift shop for retrieval at one's convenience.
While the 'full hook up' rate includes cable and Wi-Fi, be prepared for slower speeds when the park fills with guests (as one would expect).
We highly recommend staying here and plan to continue to return to Boyd's every year well into the future. - Todd and Heather

We were lucky to get a spot for 5 days at Boyd's, but our overall impression of the park was, it is of mediocre value. Granted, you can't beat the location which allowed us to rent a scooter and that made it easy to go to/from town (we have no toad), so the location if why it was so expensive. The hookup's were okay, the cable mediocre, and the wifi was 100% useless unless you were within 20 feet of the office (even my booster didn't help). Verizon/Karma worked well. The site (#202) has a picnic table on a concrete pad, but the RV was on sand/grass, fairly level, with a couple of tall palm trees around. Most people were nice but a lot would avoid eye-contact. We were by the street and the noise was bothersome but tolerable. The roosters, though, started at 4am and kept it up until about 9am. Ugh. Our neighbor was an employee that lived there; he was pleasant in the few face-to-face encounters, but he and his visitors were quite loud up to midnight. We didn't use any facilities except for laundry, and it was adequate. There did seem to be a lot of activities, for those that like that. They also let us send mail and packages to their address, which was nice. But it was all QUITE expensive. - RobtL

Spacious sites but park is sandwiched between two trailer parks. Area outside park is rundown, and we wouldn't walk at night. No amenities. Barking dogs in neighborhood, chickens/roosters crowing early in the morning, airport traffic started early but wasn't all day. Navy training jets often drowned out normal conversation one day until after dark. Only good point is how close it was to Key West and how close it was to two good restaurants: Hogfish Bar and Grill and Rusty Anchor. Lazy Dogs outdoor water sports rental location also close. - limey84

Very nice, a short distance to Key West, no amenities but very quiet and very clean. Wi-Fi works fine and lots of channels on cable. No showers or restrooms. - ant1

This is really two parks. Sites 1-5 are large back in sites with not much of a view. Sites 6-11 are pull in ocean front sites. 1-5 should be rated at 7 for the con reasons to follow. 6-11 should be rated 10+ but for a couple of the cons that follow. Pros: all sites (except 11) are very wide, large concrete pad for coach and outside sitting, good dependable power, water and cable, views from 6-11, paved road into campground, ample room to park 2 or more toads. Cons: no bath house or laundry, Wi-Fi was not working (was to be fixed and I am sure it will be), not the best of neighborhoods (don't want to walk off the property at night). Having said this we must also say that this is one of the best laid out campgrounds we have stayed in. Owner is on premises for winter season and is very friendly and knowledgeable. Would we stay again? You betcha, already paid for next year. BTW, the rate was a 5 night minimum at $100 per night due to Fantasy Fest and worth every dime of it. . - Scott Charlton

The employees are very accommodating and helpful. The location is the best in Key West. The park is kept clean and neat the whole time of my week stay. I will definitely stay here again. - Lazyhill

Very hard campsite to rate. I could give this park anything from a 3 to an 8. First of all the good bits. Location to Key West is fantastic. You will not get closer to Key West at any other campground. Took us 20 mins to cycle in, 15 mins to cycle to the beach. The campground is right next to the bus stop, for $2 each way or $8 a week you can catch the bus into Key West. It takes about 30 mins each way. The worst thing about the campground is noise. The bins are emptied 4 or 5 times a week at 5am in the morning, and the noise is enough to wake the dead. Once awake it is hard to get back to sleep because of the US1 noise and the cockerels. If you are an early riser then this will not be a problem to you. The campground is on Stock Island which can be described as a high price slum area. I have witnessed no problems, but if you like nice surroundings then avoid this place as it is not a pretty area. Restrooms and showers are just about acceptable. Laundry room is good, and lady in the office is friendly enough. Biting insects are prevalent so if you are prone to being bitten then take plenty of precautions. Would I stay here again? No but we visited another park up the road which is $40 more a night and although better, I certainly would not pay $100 to stay there as it is in a poor neighborhood and sites are quite cramped. - brfcfan
