10 RV Parks near Long Key, Florida
Oct 2018 - $20.00
We loved our stay at Fiesta Key and can't wait to return again someday. When we got there, the escort led us to our site which was kind of small for our 43 ft 5th wheel. Since they weren't crowded at this time of the year he was able to arrange to have us moved to a larger site. I appreciated that so much, and we really liked the site we ended up with. I also appreciated that they allowed me to have a couple of packages delivered there, and the office staff that called to let me know my package arrived was so friendly! The pool was fantastic, we went there almost every day with our kids. The beach and marina are beautiful. We enjoyed seeing manatee swimming near the marina, and also liked seeing iguanas everywhere. One of our favorite things was the Lobster Crawl restaurant. Happy hour specials were great and we had dinner there several times during our stay. The food was excellent! We are full timers and work remotely so we rely on good cell coverage. Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T all worked very well there. - Love2Camp777

We had a bad experience staying at this park and would not recommend it. The lady in charge is very rude with very poor customer service skills, not willing to work or listen to you. We have stayed at many RV parks and this place is not worth the money, from amenities to customer service. We will never use them again! They only allow 6 people per site and if they "think" you have more than that they will wreak havoc and by the way they did not even attempt to confirm the amount of people per site just assumed. Really horrible experience and we were forced to cut our vacation short. Just horrible. - Lizz48

The cleanliness problem was in the bathhouse, which was not kept clean. Also, there were too few trash bins available around the grounds. Otherwise the place was quite clean and satisfactory. When we arrived the person who led us to our site was unclear and unhelpful about whether we would have to unhook our tow dolly and, if so, where we would put it. They announced both a movie night and later a game night, neither of which happened. The beach setting of their bar and restaurant, "Lobster Crawl," is delightful; we went there twice. The food was okay, and the service, except for one surly bartender, was good. The pool and pool area are clean and attractive. Very inconveniently the water and power hookups are on one side of the site and the sewage on the other. Water and power lines had to run under the van. - Samuel J

Heads up, per their website, Long Key will be closing for a year starting the fall of 2017 for beach reclamation.
Wow - where else can you park right on the ocean? Clean. The scenery was awesome!! Shallow water with sea grass that washes up. There are jelly fish and man-of-wars, so be careful. The old bathrooms/showers were 'old' and in need of updating. Still clean though. The new bathrooms down the road were very nice.
Sites vary in size (length and width), so do your homework. Each is separated from the next sites by vegetation. Each site had water & electric, however, I noticed that each pair of sites shared a central utility location at the back of the site which means for the odd numbered sites, the hook-ups were to the right (looking from the road into the sites) and the even sites were to the left. I noticed this as many motor homes had to pull straight in for even sites (versus back in) so they could hook up (or had to use extension cords and hoses). In our TT, we can only back in and do not have extension hoses/cords, but fortunately had an odd site with the hook ups to the on the utility side of the camper.
Camping at Long Key is all about being 'on the ocean', and for that, Long Key is priceless! - brentp

We spent a wonderful two weeks in an oceanside site (all sites in this park are oceanside). Our site was rather narrow, and if we had slides we would not have had room to fully deploy our awning. Since we don't have slides, the only problem the site presented was a tight squeeze to back the rig in. Other sites seemed to be wider, so it will be luck of the draw for you, since reservations are so difficult to procure. Once in place, we had a great time. The ocean is shallow and calm in this area, but the beach is covered with seaweed, which the park demands remain in place to preserve the natural ecosystem. We still managed to have room for chairs even at high tide. One discouraging note was the presence of rats after dark. One night we were sitting next to the picnic table after eating dinner, and watched as a bold rat climbed onto the table only five feet from our chairs and checked out our empty dinner plates. Other nights, the rats were seen running along the fence rails and in the trees. This is the only reason the park didn't get five stars for cleanliness, since the bath houses and rest of the areas were impeccably clean. - HabaneroMike

This park is my least favorite state park in the Keys. The park manager needs some lessons in customer relations. The rangers here are the least helpful in all the parks we've stayed in. Most likely due to the poor management.
As far as the park goes there is not a lot to do here. The water level is so shallow you can walk out quite a ways and it doesn't get past your knees. Plus, although the bottom is sandy it is kind of mucky. If you where your flip flops in the water the mucky sand sucks them right off your feet. It feels like you're getting stuck. It is very weird being that everywhere else in the keys that we've been has a nice soft sandy bottom.
There is a lot of erosion going on so the availability of campsites that would fit our 30ft RV is becoming less every year. There are 60 sites in the campground. In the past there were at least 38 sites that would accommodate our RV. Now there are only 18.
The only reason I would camp here is because my husband likes to fish off the Long Key bridge. It is located only about a mile from the park. - misnowbird

I booked this park because of previous reviews and Passport America rate. The utilities are good however they are all the way to the rear of the site. Be sure to have plenty of sewer hose; I used 30 feet. The interior site roads are paved but are barely wide enough for your rig which gives very little room for backing. The back in interior sites are very tight to get in if you have a larger rig. Be very careful when backing I had to jack knife my fifth wheel and luckily I kept getting out and checking clearances or I would have hit a large tree limb. They have nice pull thru sites but you will definitely pay a premium rate for them. The laundromat was clean with half of the washers out of order, $4.00 to wash. The staff were very friendly and helpful. - gadawg

The staff was so friendly. We had a problem with our cable and they immediately came out and fixed it. The staff is so nice, so friendly, so accommodating and wanted to make sure everything was fine. We camped with another couple who also had their travel trailer. I was thoroughly pleased, site was clean, everything was fabulous. This is my second trip there and clearly plan on going again. - Apollo girl

Nice campground with access to swimming in the ocean. Nice pier for fishing. Great sunset views. Not so good, spots at seawall get flooded after heavy rains to the point where it's difficult to get in and out. Park plans to fix this problem. Lack of supervision after 5 pm results in noise on the pier and Campground. We stayed for several weeks and did not see anybody clean the sites once. Washer/Dryer very expensive and again nobody cleans neither the room nor the machines. Otherwise enjoyed the sunsets. - Roadkraut

Wish I'd read the earlier reviews about this place. It was almost impossible to get our 32ft fifth wheel into this space. Had it not been for 2 really helpful guys aiding me with the maneuvering, I would have given up and asked for my money back. It took almost 45 minutes of pulling and pushing and scuffing of tires to get the rig spotted, and at that point my truck was almost at 90 degrees to the camper. My two helpers said this happens all the time because the staff don't forewarn people that this is an old site that is mostly residential and the pitches are not big rig friendly.
Will definitely avoid this place in future. - Richard Bambridge

Very nice park with access to Gulf of Mexico. Sites were small making it difficult to get into. However the staff was very helpful helping us. Very quiet park with friendly staff. Would stay here again and do hope to do just that. We were there for almost one month. The showers/bathrooms were always clean. - kayaker1

The staff is rude and unfriendly. No assistance to find our site. No TV, no WIFI, pool was dirty and not heated. Terrible odor from the sewer treatment park next door. Have been RVing for 35 years. This is the worst park we have ever stayed in. - cap'n greg

Our primary factor in choosing this RV park was location; in the middle of the Keys and equal distance from Key Largo and Key West, and close to SCUBA diving. The office required payment in full in advance for our 7-night stay. We have stayed in 42 RV parks in the last 17 months and found this to be unusual. The $95/night fee was also the most we have ever paid. No trash pick up, no excercise room, no fire pit, and wi-fi signal is weak and limted to email. Pool is salt water, comfortable and peaceful. There is no pavement; all roads and RV sites are gravel. There are 34 sites and park was never full. Sites are easy to navigate and staff is helpful. Staff requests tenants to arrive before 5:00 PM so staff can give you a full briefing on park rules and orientation. Grounds are clean and well maintained, palm trees, and satillite friendly. The park has its own small dock area, room for a few boats that belong to tenants. There is a laundry room and a small club house. Park has easy access to gulf side shoreline within 100 feet of sites, but no beach. You will get your best value from this park if you fish and/or have a boat. There are many RV parks nearby which might be an option if you don't have a boat. We probably will not stay here again since we do not fish or have a boat. - Mnolasco

Great small campground. I think only 30+/- campsites, but very well maintained. The sites are a little close together and that's why a 9 instead of 10 rating. BUT, we had an very enjoyable visit. Beautiful sunset gathering area looking out over the Gulf. Dog walk area with lush green grass. - Russell01

This is a beautiful, small and quiet RV park roughly at the mid-point of the Florida Keys. I ended up staying for 6 nights while exploring the area for the first time. Plusses for me were the impeccably kept grounds, boat dock/sitting area on the water and the helpful staff, who helped me get into my site and provided lots of good information about the area. Only negatives for me were the hedge near the road that hides the entrance/exit from the road (probably done to cut down on the highway noise) and the wi-fi performance, which was not that reliable. However, I would definitely return. - Phaeton40AH

What an amazing little FL state park located in the keys! Extremely difficult to get reservations, but if you are lucky enough, you are in for a real treat. 25 reservable sites and none are bad. Prime spots are on the ocean front, but it's an easy short walk to the beach from anywhere in the park. Some sites have a large tenting area which is also great for outdoor sitting. The park did take a significant hit from Irma, but is better than before. New gravel with new hookups. Limited vegetation, which means limited shade, but you also enjoy amazing ocean views. Excellent kayaking, and a walking trail across the highway which we didn't enjoy due to loud traffic noise. The park itself is surprisingly quiet though. Very dog friendly with waste bags and dog treats at the ranger station. Clear sky for satellite reception and good AT&T & Verizon service. We hope to be back, but with the difficulty getting reservations, we're not counting on it. - Jerry and Betsy

This is a nice park that was built in 2005. There is only one loop so limited number of sites. Convenient beach access and boat ramp with picnic tables, pavilion etc. Sites are all level gravel. Some sites bigger than others; our 44' with toad was doable but tight. Easy back-in sites. Utilities were good. No sewer except at dump station. A lot of crabs and lizards-some big ones-live there. They had temporary trailer mounted bathroom/shower area while the bathhouse was being remodeled. These temporary units were very clean and had A/C. While we were there the bathouse reopened. It was very nice but no A/C therefore very hot and muggy. There is no overflow parking. - RMD3819

This is the second time we have stayed here at this wonderful small State Park. Staff was friendly and helpful at check in. Interior roads are paved and big rig access was average. Our site was very spacious, plenty of space for our towed, lots of privacy between sites, shade trees, picnic table and barbecue. Our pad was a level gravel back in, and it was very quiet and peaceful both day and night. The campground is located with vegetation between the site and the beach, so you only get a peak of the water. Bathrooms were undergoing renovations, and work should be finished soon. There is a security gate 24/7, which we liked. Pet friendly and plenty of places to walk your pet. Plenty of food stores, restaurants and sightseeing close by. We will definitely stay here again. - tobyjug

A real treasure in the Florida Keys, based on some of the other RV parks we saw between Key Largo and Key West. We lucked into a site for 3 nights during the winter season on short notice, which in this case was 3 months. Many people from up north enjoying extended stays down here. The facilities are somewhat old, but adequate. Many of the sites are on the tight side, but we got a fairly roomy shaded site. It was only 30 amp, but that was what was available. No sewer, but a "honey wagon" comes by and will dump for a small fee. Personnel were friendly. Rumor has it that the owner has sold the property and the park will close this spring. Too bad. This was quite a place in the Florida Keys. - one_strange_texan

The park was nice. We enjoyed our time here with our son. We had a site by the water and that was a treat at all times. We were able to walk into the water, although it was not sandy it was like clay. It was fun. There was a nice breeze. The men's restroom had a strong urine odor for the majority of the stay. And the toilet stalls were not big enough. My son was concerned of anyone walking in while he used it. This is when we asked that he not go there anymore unless there was an emergency. The showers were clean but the curtains were too narrow and there was no privacy to change in either restrooms (female or male). Another good point is that you can just bike or walk to the bridge and fish. My son enjoyed that a lot. There is a grill within walking distance. I did not go to it so have no recommendations on that. I guess that I would come back at some point. There is not much for kids to do here and there is no pool either. I did like that there is security at the entrance and the garbage gets picked up in the morning at your site if you do not want to go for a walk. The beach, well that was not very attractive, it was more like a jump into the ocean with no clarity as to what is underneath. Some people like that, I like to see what is there when I jump. Overall , it was nice. - AngelY

My comments are not up to date and guessing on the rate as we paid by the month. We have been coming to this place a lot since 2001 when we got our RV. We have stayed on the water and in the infield section. We last were there February 2014 and really like this place. Sadly, it has been sold and will be developed into a resort so the park will be gone. We have reserved a site this coming winter. Thank goodness. It is not a fancy rv park and not a resort type facility, but the staff is great, the campers are almost like family and I cannot wait to return. Thank goodness they come and pump you out or we'd have to leave in 4 days. - LindaVA1

If you are an Elk and enjoy the Gulf, be sure to try this lodge. They have about 12 spaces with 50 amp power and water, no sewer. You park within 100' of the bay. They have a fishing pier and private beach with crystal clear water. The lodge is inviting and has continuous events. The hosts, Patty and Tim are the best. Try it. - ranchoddellago

Open to Elk members only. Small campground in back of lodge on water - beautiful views, for sure. State there are 10 sites, but really only 8. Best place, price-wise, to stay if eligible. Would give a 10, however the hosts force us to lower the rating - they've been there too long - difficult to describe: nice enough people, but they keep photos & records of every visitor (a bit creepy), other examples not worth mentioning. Other guests great & friendly group. Good Verizon 4G coverage. We will stay here again if in the area. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

Campground host was very nasty. Bad attitude towards campers and thought him and our neighbor man were going to get into a physical altercation. The problem is there is never anyone at the gatehouse. If you don't go to the campground host site, then there is no way to know what site you're in. When you go to the host site, there is no one there either. So we continued to drive circles around the park and then finally pulled into a empty site. An hour later he is pounding our door down telling us to move and move now. Said we weren't on the list. Come to find out, the list is two days behind due to previous hurricane Irma issues. So we moved to overflow and ran off the generator. Meanwhile the electric sites sat empty. He patrols like he's a control freak and needs to be doing his job welcoming campers instead of grouching. Other than the nasty host though, this place is an incredible experience and beautiful to see and explore. We loved it there. Spaces are huge and plenty of room and many have shade. Beach is a nice place to play and photo opportunities are plentiful. Wildlife is amazing. Take plenty of mosquito spray, water and fuel and expect no cell coverage out there. Progress is being made on cleaning up the other 2 campgrounds there. We seen bulldozers and trucks and men working everyday we were there. It's coming along great. Plenty of trails to walk and explore and the Visitor center has rangers that are nice and will answer all your questions etc. They have a nice display center about the park and park maps available also. Love the Everglades. Would go back to Flamingo Campground. - Scenic

This CG is about 50 miles from the closest resupply so come in with all your supplies, empty waste tanks and full fresh water. Dump station and fresh water is available however when we were there they were having a lot of problems with their water system and you had to boil your consumable water. I suspect that this is going to be a continuing issue due to the lack of funding the National Park Service receives. Sites are all pull through paved with picnic table and fire ring. The reservable sites (41) are all power with 20/30/50 amp. The park was still cleaning up after Irma and has taken a beating over the years from a number of hurricanes. The power sites were running a 10-15% vacancy every night and the host refused to let anyone use them unless they had a reservation. There is no wifi, no Verizon reception but I heard AT&T had a weak signal. You had to drive at least 11 miles to get phone and I had to drive out 20+ miles to get internet. The only services they have down there are canoe and kayak rentals and fuel for boats. We didn't have any problems with bugs but it was windy and coolish the whole time we were there. The "T" loop is the only one open right now and all the non electric sites are first come. We had to extend another day and had to move to one of these despite the fact that there were 6 open electrical sites. One should note that this concessionaire does not require that anybody stay in the sites if you have paid for the site and you can apparently just park you boat trailer in a site and leave it. This pretty much goes against every regulation I have seen in every Federal campground I've been to. The NP site still mentions a hotel and store but they were torn down due to hurricane damage. The one convenient store was closed due to flooding and showed no signs of being reopened. We'd stay here again if we wanted to visit the Everglades. - pumper9x9

This is a very spacious campground with three loops, of which one has electric (reservations are recommended for electric sites). Solar showers here were great, with very hot water, with one downside: they are located in the primitive camping loop. The mosquitoes here pretty much ruined the camping...I've never seen mosquitoes in such numbers in my life. Every time we opened the door or walked to the restrooms it was a battle. However, the national park is well worth it, just bring netted clothing, hats, and repellent. - Pinkflamingo71
