Get your Passport America discount card for this park! Its not worth $90 per night! it is worth $45 and no more. I understand were in the Keys, and location is important.... The park is old, not too many full timers (no park models) but sites are tight; good thing the park was fairly empty. This was the tightest spot on our long trip to get into; I had 12" to spare on one side to the other electrical post! We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here in the middle of April so the park was less crowded. We had a perfect spot one row from the ocean. Very quiet campground, roads were tight. It is pricey, but you are in the Keys. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

We spent a weekend at Jolly Roger, first off it's in the Keys so you expect it to cost $90 a night, so no need to be upset about that. Pros - Great Dog Park!, Friendly Staff, Beautiful sunsets on their Tiki Island Cons - Very small sites, you will be on top of your neighbor. No real beach (they have a sea wall and a very nice swimming area but no actual beach). Neutral - I would guess 40%-50% of the people there are long term guests (3 months +). While this is not a bad thing it just gives the area a different feel. Overall this is a very nice Park. We most likely would not stay again but we did enjoy our time here. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

The Jolly Roger was a nice campground. We will go back, however our site was tight so we would request something different. The staff was very nice. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

Yes, these are the Florida Keys so we are a captive audience whether it's for food/groceries, souvenirs, gasoline, $4.00 per load washing machines, or campsites at campgrounds. I personally feel that paying $84.00 per night is exorbitant, but again, these are the Florida Keys and that is the going rate. So we bite the bullet and stay. That being said, I was extremely happy at Jolly Roger. The people were nice and friendly, both the long-term and short timers, the staff were helpful, and I enjoyed our morning visits with others at the Bark Park. Yes, the sites were a tad close, but we were fortunate that our neighbors were nice, outgoing, and very quiet. I tend to like CG's that cater to the long term campers, as they tend to treat the campground as they would their home, and treat others with respect. During the day we are always out and about, sightseeing, hiking, or geocaching, so we don't get the interaction that many other campers do, but that didn't change our opinion of the park. The only change I would request, is that JR find a lid for the trash can at the Bark Park to keep the odor from wafting throughout the area. Although our 24 foot travel trailer felt tiny among the monster motor homes and huge 5ers, we wouldn't hesitate staying at Jolly Roger again. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

28ft Class C. Premium full hook-up site. Lots of room both width and length. Clean, well kept, trash pick up at site by 9am. All amenities worked very well. You can get as close or as far away as you wish to the hook-ups. All depends on your unit and how you want to position the patio and your rig.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Took us around on a golf cart to look at our site options; a first for us and very welcomed. Paper view of a site is one thing, seeing it first hand is another.

We would stay again. We did call in advance for a reservation to insure we could get a site. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Have stayed there many times, always a great place to stay. Only negative is some of the trees are way too close to the road. Which is a double edge sword as we stay there because of the shade. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Due to location, popularity, & folks willing to pay, they get to charge outrageously exorbitant prices. Interior roads very tight, as is site spacing. Bath/shower not kept up well, shower needed wipe down & toilet needed attention due to blowout. Heavy sewer smell encompassed the park. Sugar ants were problematic. Pool was well maintained but not enough chairs. State parks are more reasonable in price, will stay at one of them if we return, Bahia Honda SP looked nice. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

We spent our annual month of Feb at JR and loved it. The biggest plus are the people, both the managers and workers and the guests. Planned activities are great and it feels like home when we are there. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mid Keys good access to all High points North and South. Walking distance to a good restaurant. They have events on the campgrounds, ie. bingo, Chili Night, Valentine's dinner. A nice swimming pool, but, but they have a sea wall and you can swim / snorkel right at the campgrounds. When you come back from a great day fishing on pier, bridge or boat there is a fish cleaning station . This has become our family vaction spot and we've met others who come back at the same time a real Camp reunion. Family and friends that's what makes memories. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Tent.

Breakfast on the way down Midway Cafe offers great food and retro kitch design. Pina Coladas at World Wide of Sportsman, Islamorada, restaurant are to die for, Pictures of Hemingway and vintage architecture. Conch chowder at Key Colony Inn is superior as is the Tuna Tartar, Conch fritters at Hogs Breath in Key West are the best so far Blue Heaven Food is good too But, the ambiance and art there and surrounding area is better.

In 8 years of camping this CG was one of worst we have encountered. Our site was unlevel, had large bedrock outcrops, and a power pedestal about a foot off the ground. I needed two spotters to avoid overhangs while backing into the site. There is a pretty pool on site, but little else. Due to congestion throughout the CG, on departure, I had to back 125 yards to exit. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Long drive to just about everything. Snorkeling and fishing are about the only activities in the immediate area. Key West and Key Largo are each about an hour away in opposite directions. This would be a CG of last resort.

We stay here for the Christmas Holidays each year as they have everything we need. Docking for our boat, right on the gulf and right in the middle of the Keys. More office staff wouldn't hurt as it takes awhile to check in and out when they get busy. Laundry and book exchange are clean and secure with plenty of security cameras EVERYWHERE! That's a good thing. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were making one stop in the Florida Keys and wanted something in the middle keys. The Jolly Roger is on Grassy Key at mile marker 59 and is part of Marathon, FL. It is on the Gulf side, on the water with a boat ramp and boat docks. The driveways are asphalt which are in good condition and the site pads are grass with a concrete patio and picnic table. The bathrooms are in good condition and are kept clean. The laundry is nice with plenty of machines. The free WiFi worked well for us. We had a back in site located in the interior section. We had full hookup with 50 amp electric. We paid $42 per night with Passport America discount. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

We have always stayed at an RV resort approximately 45 miles further south but they have become very proud of their resort and have priced themselves out of our wallets. So, for a change we decided to stay here at Jolly Roger Travel Park. We found it to be very nice and quite and affordable. We had one of the sites on the sea wall. The only problem is once our fifth wheel was parked, the lot was not large enough for our tow vehicle. We will be back again!!!!! We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.
