Good value with Passport America considering your in the Keys. Wifi worked well as did the cable TV. The washrooms appeared to be almost new so were nicely designed and clean. Sites are quite choppy with roots and trees to maneuver around. Include cement pads and tables. We would recommend this park. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Laundry is expensive at $2.50 a load for wash.

Jolly Roger or Good news/Bad news. Good news. Friendly helpful office staff. Premium sites are large, with nice patios and easy access. Park is centrally located for all the keys attractions. The snorkling off the seawall is the best around, without taking a boat. Bad news. Exterior (inferior) and exterior plus sites, are difficult to get into. Had to move my pickup from my site several times, so other people could access theirs. Sites are small and many of the concrete patio pads are uneven and broken. Wifi service was poor to start with, but some improvements were made. Showers are push button, therefore no temperature control. Moderately dog friendly. The dog walk area was used as a parking lot for boat trailers and vehicles. Probably won't stay there again. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

We first came here for a rally with the Sunshine Statesmen GMC Motorhome Club, and enjoyed it so much we returned this year, and will likely do so again for a short stay next winter. They honor the Passport America discount on premium spots for a maximum of five days. Given the location in the Keys and the resort style amenities available, we think this is a great value: many places in the Keys will charge far higher. We had no problem with the size of our site, and as others have noted, the staff was very helpful and friendly. The only ding would be the typical WiFi challenges that so many RV places have: spotty coverage and slow connection, but good enough to do basic web surfing during off peak times. The pool is very cute, they have a calendar of activities, and the protected harbor has nice snorkeling, especially if you want to see a huge number of Florida lobster. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

I love Jolly Roger Campground. A magic spirit exists, people and staff are so friendly, perfect for dogs, snorkling and OMG for the sunset. Lots are big enough and clean. Pool and laundry clean. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

All stores, boutiques, dog beach very close by. Fun to bicycle everywhere. Love to visit the city of Key West (60 min from the campground), the 7 mile bridge and Bahia Grande State park. Going more south, you will also find a little flea market with restaurant.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
