6 Parks near Marathon, Florida
Sep 2015 - $38.00
We stayed here for a week. Very quiet small campground. All sites are easy to get into and very large. Bushes between the sites.I have an ATT hot spot and no problems getting service. The entire park is a small park with little traffic. Would stay here again. - Wandering

Wonderful park in every way. Interesting reading negatives re: TV, Wi-Fi, full hookups, etc. Sewer not part of Florida SP with exception of ones that were previously private, e.g., Top Sail. The private parks on the Keys are expensive with close sites. Curry Hammock is a gem. - judy p

We were lucky enough to be there when they had a star gazing group. We couldn't get enough of star gazing and were up at 3 am outside our trailer which was spectacular. The beach was long and great for kayaks. They have large Iguanas at the campground and on most of the keys so we had visitors to our campsite a couple of times. - Dog Lady

This is our 3rd stay at this RV park. The Florida Keys are a bit different in that it's either gravel or grass. Not much hard surface because of the coral below. Having said that this is probably one of the nicest places in the keys. The pool is spotless and heated. The small clubhouse is extremely clean and it does have a laundry room. You should have an RV that is self contained. No showers. There is a small restroom in the clubhouse. It is a very quaint place and our 3 dogs love it here. - hjt777

This is a small RV park (which I like) very clean. Sites are gravel, choice of back in at the water or only slightly further away nice pull throughs. Level new gravel throughout the park, no sand that will get into your rig. Great cable TV and good wifi. In the middle of the Keys so good location for sight seeing. Close to highway but not much noise. Office staff was helpful, I would stay here again. - Bev&Dick

We stayed for the entire month of May. When we arrived, we were one row back from the waterfront row, and the next day moved into the waterfront row. We were supposed to move one more time during our stay, but the excellent staff did some shuffling and we were able to stay put.
The head honcho must be ex-millitary, because he runs a tight ship. He let us know right up front that if you're caught speeding or carrying on throughout the night with excess noise, you'll be told to leave right there and then (which was fine with us). The resort has a nice dock, and people would launch their boat elsewhere and then drive it over and tie up.
I can't remember if they offered cable TV or not, but I DO remember their WiFi policy, which frankly was disappointing. They would monitor usage, and if you exceeded a certain amount of MB, you were kicked off for the rest of your stay. The amount they allow was not very much (we exceeded it in just a few days), and frankly, with today's computers, smartphones and tablets often needing hundreds of MB just to keep the OS, apps and anti-virus software up-to-date (and doing so automatically once they sensed that they were connected to an internet source), Grassy Keys should've offered a solution where you could get basic (slow) service for free, and faster unlimited service for a fee. Just kicking you off with no recourse is just wrong in this day and age.
One thing we liked were the iguanas constantly coming in from the adjacent "jungle" and strolling over the docks and sandy areas. We're from the Seattle area, so it was interesting to us.
Get one of the waterfront spots if you can, as the views north into the Gulf of Mexico are spectacular. - coffeetime

We chose a pull through site near the pool, although there are waterfront sites available, which vary in size. At this time of year (before December 1, when high season begins), the price for every site was $60. Sites have grass surfaces. The first pull through site to which we were assigned was blocked by wooden supports which had been installed to prop up the palm trees on the site. We moved down two or three sites further and had better luck, only to find that the entire site was covered in small stickle burrs. Didn't bother changing sites since we were only there two days, but it was awkward having to pick up and carry our two small dogs from the coach to areas that were free of burrs. The office told us the dry summer had resulted in the growth of the burrs, but we didn't notice them elsewhere, just our site -- figures!! A wonderful pool, nice and spacious with good entry at either end. However, the pavers around the pool are very slippery when wet. Be careful here. A nice place to spend a couple of days on our way further south to Key West. - M&M

Could be a nice park if they cleaned it up! We parked on the seawall which would be a nice site but for the dead palm trees being held up by nailed-on 2x4s and the cracked and dirty seawall, loaded with dead smelly seaweed. The base of our dead palm tree had loads of cigarette butts and broken beer bottles on it! You would think the owners would clean up the sites between campers. Sunsets were nice. We would not stay here again unless it was cleaner. - pa gal

I really want to leave a great review for this campground, as it does seem to be an overall nice, decently run place. However the propensity to jam campers together to maximize the profits really soured the experience for me. Bathrooms/showers were some of the cleanest I've ever seen at a campground. The pool, dock and pavilion areas were nice, with the to be expected great sunsets of the Keys. My critique of the campground would be as follows: When we arrived, we were placed right next to the only other camper on the row, despite the face there were multilevel vacant spots on our row and the adjacent row. We had to overlap approximately 6 inches over our concrete pad such that we did not hit the right adjoining camper's tow vehicle that was parked overlapping at the front yard of our spot. Even at this offset we were still only a foot from their awning with our slides. On the third day, we returned to find a class A parked on our left with its slide touching our awning, still with empty sites surrounding us. The sites are flat, too narrow. To add additional aggravation to the experience, when packing up this morning, I noticed a nearly 3 ft long scratch down my slide at handlebar height, and a child's bike with missing grip ends leaning against the picnic table of our right hand neighbors. The practice of literally placing the units awning to slide is unacceptable. I am sure the rationale is that we were using Passport America, however if using Passport America means a miserable camping experience, I'll spend the extra to stay elsewhere. - Chad Elliott

The check in lady & twice a day garage pick up was the things that were good about this park. Paid for water front site that turned into a mud hole at low tide with the smell of dead fish. No one there to help find my site & the site required backing in on the blind side, site was level. Bath rooms always had water on the floor, showers didn't have an place to put clean clothes while showering. Bath room had a 25 foot extension cord nailed to the wall to run a window AC...would not stay there again. - TBrown

I hesitate to rate this park for fear it will be so full we cannot get a reservation. We've been coming here since 2000, every year but one. This is a laid back, friendly park that is located in a pretty part of this world. They have many activities planned, but the beautiful part is the scenery. Nearby is a great restaurant called the Sunset Grille and Raw Bar, which we have frequented quite a few times. The 7 mile bridge is right here and a great place to walk or ride a bike. It's just like another home to us!!!! - LindaVA1

Where to start, First off I paid for an ocean view, premium site and I would of had to get on the roof of the camper to see the water instead we stared at a wall of mangrove trees out of the back and a bunch of stored campers in front, of course they were full and we could not move. Don't get me wrong, they do have some out of this world views in many spots and they paid the same price I did. There is no sewer in the park and the people who left from our spot before we arrived felt compelled to dump gray water before they left and since the sites are all grass it made somewhat of a mess. They do have a honey wagon that drives around pumping poo all day for $10 a pump. Lots of very old trailers and motor homes but lots of high end stuff as well. Site was not level, blocks are a must, levelers will just sink in the ground. Had low voltage on 1 leg of the 50 amp, leg 1 was 124 volts, leg 2 was 106. Told the ladies at the office and they said they would look at it, didn't happen so we left 4 days early with no refund. Not going back. - Higgs

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

We checked in to this place because it's by the keys. An affordable place, but we bet you can stay at much nicer places over there. The sites were pretty small and we barely could fit our 22 foot RV in. Imagine it with your bigger rigs. Lots of extended stays around. That didn't do the campground any good. They offered no wi-fi but we found some free connections anyway. The restrooms and showers were ok. We would not stay here again. - Barry & Diane
