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. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The turtle hospital in Marathon was a lot of fun.

Not big rig friendly if using PA rate. They put you in the back rows which are very hard to get a big rig into and out because of many trees and skinny roads. No view of ocean and lots of highway noise. On the positive side, the pool, laundry and bathrooms are excellent. The laundry rate is the highest we have ever seen and they not permit using your own washer/dryer in rig. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

First night we were in the middle of the campground. I knew that if we did not move to another site the next day I would leave. For me, the view I wake up to and sit to drink my coffee or have breakfast in the morning was important, so the next morning we moved to second row (only because they were completely booked on the first row, which was on the water), but it was just magical and perfect for us. We ended up staying for about a week because we didn't want to leave.

We also met really nice people that we stay connected with now.

Our dog loves the water and we were able to get her in and swim since we were right by it. Most of the people that are there are snowbirds.

Its about an hour away from Key West which we traveled few times in our stay, you hardly feel the drive since it's so gorgeous. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you want to be by the water DO NOT use Passport America. With PA they will give you the very back spots. What you pay is what you get!!

If you have Good Sam, you can use this discount in every spot you're in.

The swimming pool was one of the best!!

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.
