This was one of the best RV parks we have been in. It was the cleanest and very friendly and helpful employees. Great views of the gulf! We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Decent park with clean restrooms. Plan on having your weekends filled with music coming from 5 different campsites up until 10 pm. This it the least expensive park around and unfortunately it attracts the campers looking for a cheap place to stay with 15 people on one site. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our rate was for off-season/Good Sam. We had a waterfront site, which I recommend. Awesome sunset views! Waterfront sites sit at a seawall which is a good spot to snorkel. We saw lobster, manatees, stingray, small tropical fish, sea cucumber and a small sand shark from the seawall. Restroom/showers are brand new & beautiful. Some sites are not as level as others, but not unmanageable. 50 amp/water/sewer/cable were good. Spray for ground bugs as we had a major attack inside of some kind of ant within an hour of setting up. There are small efficiencies to rent if someone wants to come with you & you don't have room. Many sites have a cement pad and roads are paved. Clearly work is being done to improve the park & that is always good. Sea grass odors can be overwhelming at the waterfront sites. We would stay here again. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

The roads are paved, sites are grass or gravel. Hook ups were well placed and worked. Sites have a small patio, some have shade. The park was clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Very good location. Very friendly staff. Our site was in the middle. They are very close together there, but we had room to put out our awing. The premium sites are very wide and long. The owner has plans to upgrade alot of the sites to wider and longer. Park was clean and well kept. Rate reflects Passport America for 5 nights and regular rate for the last 2. Owner might not take Passport America in the future, but will continue Good Sam discounts. Would stay there again if in the area. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second stay, and the owners continue to make great improvements. This year: totally renovated beautiful bathrooms. We like the old section for its tropical foliage, but some sites are a bit tight: not a problem for our 22’ Class B. This park is like a bustling village with a very pleasant atmosphere. Many seasonals, other short- term visitors. Many people gather down by the long waterfront docks to watch sunset each night. Staff could not have been nicer or more efficient. There was even a very well-attended complimentary burger party at the waterfront pavilion on a Friday night, with campers bringing covered dishes. We'll be back again for an even longer stay. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Most sites are grass with plenty of room. Most have satellite access. Staff was very friendly. They require a pet deposit of $30, refundable if you and your pet behave, which is very reasonable, considering some pet owner's irresponsibility. Nice swimming area. Excellent Wi-Fi. Not crowded, but probably will be in January and February. Cost reflects Passport America rate. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here a month and I really loved this park. It's very clean and the staff is very accommodating. The pool area is very nice, it's heated in the winter and cooled in the summer. The older section is tighter but we have a 40 foot motorhome and my husband pulled right in with no problems. The newer section has plenty of room and they planted 30 new trees during our stay, so there should be more shade. The snorkeling was amazing. They have a nice little swimming area. In all the places we have stayed they, by far, have the fastest WiFi. The only draw back is it's about 10 miles into town, but during the busy tourist season I can see where that would be a huge plus! We will stay here again!

Located just north of the 7-mile bridge. This is a lovely retreat from the tourist-intense culture of the Florida Keys. Campsites are level and roomy, though there aren't shade trees. The campgrounds are located on the Gulf Side and there is a great dock area for swimming and boating, as well as simply relaxing and watching the water. Waterside locations are slightly more expensive. I stayed here four days using it as a base camp while touring the Keys. The staff was very friendly, providing me information including the location of a great dog-friendly beach on the Atlantic side of the town. There is also a nice pet area. I snorkled on the beach in February, and the water was wonderfully warm. I saw fish and touched sponge, but you are warned to leave the local lobster colony alone. There is a $25 refundable fee if you have a dog. I drove off without remembering to get it back and found it in my mail when I arrived home. In summation, this is a great place to spend time in the Keys. It is in the middle of the Keys and is an economical alternative to other areas. While the state parks in the area are less expensive, it is nearly impossible to get sites. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

I liked this park mostly for its location. It had Gulf water front property. The water was very calm and warm. I didn't technically use the bathhouse but only because it freaked me out. The doors were propped open with a cinder block so you could walk up and look in. The lack of any privacy made me nervous. There was also a ton of sand fleas, plenty at the sites but even more in the fenced pet area. The sites weren't concrete but the ground was generally even. Price reflects Passport America. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects Passport America Rate. When we first checked in we paid for 3 nights at $27 per night. The clerk told us a special summer rate was in effect. Since the park was more than half empty she gave us a site that was more in the middle of the park but the patio was a broken up concrete mess and there weeds every where. We decided to stay an additional 2 nights and when we went to pay there was a different clerk in the office who said she was the manager. She immediately was abusive to me because we had been given (and had paid for) an incorrect rate and put into the wrong area of the park. She then tried to charge me the difference in the two rates. I told her no but I would pay the rate that she claimed was the correct rate which was $39.50. I then said that if we didn't have plans for the day that we would leave. She said that would be fine with her! Really nasty! Another drawback was the laundry room. It was very hot out but the laundry was not air conditioned so I did not use it. The only saving grace to this park was the lovely couple across the road from us. We shared a drink with them each night we were there. We will never stay at this park again. I have never been treated this rudely. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects PA discount, really $44 w/tax. Just north of Marathon on Grassy Key. Nice location on water (bay) and all sites have cable included. There are new sites (no shade trees) that we actually would have preferred - our 38' FW had a bit of trouble getting around the corners as we exited. Wonderfully nice front desk people. Strange dog policy - you have to leave $30 (cash) as a deposit and if you get any warnings (i.e. dog off leash, don't pick up, etc...), then you lose your $30 (or so they say). We got our $30 back, and it's probably just a rule to keep people more aware, but was strange. We would stay here again. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

PA rates are offered even during the winter for selected spots in the old area of the park (near the highway). These sites are serviceable but are not well maintained. The new area and near the water are much larger sites and well laid out. The management crew are fast and friendly. WI-FI at our site was better than in most parks. We would stay again if PA was available. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in what was considered the "premium" area where the sites were spaced a little better and have a new concrete pad. Rig and truck parked on grass but this wasn't really an issue, and the site was fairly level. No view of the water from these sites, but the sites that are on the water were smaller and closer together. The older part of the campground was also closer together and a lot of the concrete pads were broken and falling apart. Wi-fi was decent and worked most of the time, decent array of cable channels, clean laundry room, clean pool, nice fenced in dog walk area. The park has a nice wood dock and a boat ramp to get into the water, pretty sunset views and good location to Marathon for groceries and restaurants. In general I didn't like the Marathon area, but I did like that this RV park is so close to several beach areas for swimming and kayaking. Cocoa Plum was just right down the road and allows dogs on the beach. Sombrero beach wasn't too far, and we found some great mangrove trails from there for kayaking. Also not too far from the Bahia Honda State Park. Overall I enjoyed my stay at the park and would go back there again if in the area. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.
