Our last stay here was 5 years ago. They gave since added a beautiful pool and more RV space. The staff continue to be very polite and helpful. We always stay in waterfront sites that allow you to pull in facing the water and sunsets. Sites are level with grass and cement patios. We need only gave a thirty footer and tow, however, these waterfront sites are very capable of harboring large tandem axle 40's with ease. Full service sites well marked and utilities in good locations on the site. Boat ramp out front next to the palapa park. We launched and kayaked to the mangroves from here. Spotless restrooms and laundry room with up to date digital washer and dryers. Great value here. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Great location Bay side with wonderful sunsets from the tiki hut island. Clean restrooms and showers updated recently. Good utilities/ electricity.
Very nice pool and patio. Available bike path nearby that will take you Marathon. Nice covered pavilion for groups right on the seawall next to the boat ramp. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Use your eyes and not your GPS when pulling up to their entrance with setback signage. The GPS told me to turn 1 driveway too soon; I ended up backing my 36 ft 5er a quarter mile back to the main road, even Google Maps showed it wrong.

Check in was quick; if you have a dog they take $30 cash deposit. Not sure what the criteria is not to get it back, but it did not feel welcoming at all when 99% of us are responsible owners.

Most sites were dirt and grass, close to your neighbor, would not be able to put awning out. Cable TV was missing at my site, needed a 30 ft cable to reach next site. Power and water supply were good.

The pool was big, clean and warm with nice shower and restrooms.

The laundry was very expensive, and it appears the washers are setup for low water usage. We stayed here 2 nights passing through, OK for that long. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed this place! Not super fancy, but very nice and very comfortable! Great staff--pleasant and helpful! Nice pool and immaculate restrooms and shower area. Loved the tiki island--the views of the water from here (and many sites) were awesome--perfect for sunset viewing!! I hear it can get rowdy with parties on the weekend, but we were there during the week. Their taking Passport America (for some sites) made it a great value! We would definitely book again! We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

When we picked a "premium" site we thought it would be larger than the first site we were given which was very close together. We asked to be moved to a different site and were allowed. The park is nice, we are returning next year. Lot spacing was spacious with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is grass and features a picnic table. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

We love the laid-back attitude of the Keys and this RV park suits us. Sites are grass but most have concrete decks with picnic tables. Nice pool. Tropical landscape and location right on Gulf. We have stayed there twice and were water-front once and just off this last time. Site was small but adequate for our RV. This is NOT a luxury park but offers docking, boat ramp, and swimming/snorkeling area. RV's ranged from tents to LARGE motor homes and all campers were friendly and helpful to each other! We will continue to camp there! We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love eating at the local restaurants. Highly recommend KEYS FISHERY and SPARKYS. There are lots of t-shirt stores all over Marathon. We also like to go to Key West and we used local bus transportation. (Check for local pickup sites.) we also timed this last visit to be in Marathon for the annual SEA FOOD FESTIVAL AND CRAFT SHOW!

You are packed in closely here but people are friendly and the view of the Gulf at night is outstanding. The management is great and the park is clean. Our Verizon and Dish Network worked well here. Garbage pickup is at the site. We had a back in site with full hook ups. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here in February...not the campground's fault, but the weather was cool and windy. This park is located about 6 miles from the town of Marathon, but everything you might need is handy once you get there. Our site was plenty roomy, at least in the area we were given...particularly compared with other parks we looked at in the area. We don't fish or have a boat with us, but many of the folks take advantage of the boat ramp, small boat harbor and convenient fish cleaning station. You'll find all sorts of RV's...vans, tents, popups, so some of the sites are much smaller that where we were. All in all, a good experience...one very small comment...the owner/manager is particularly cordial and helpful. On the other hand most of the other folks there could use a short stint in charm school...not rude...just somewhat oblivious to your presence...may come from dealing with nothing but tourists for 6 months a year!!! We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

This park has good pricing for the Keys, however the sites are grass and can be soggy due to rain. We have a 43' rig and it was very tight getting in to the back in space. Nearby RVs. Some shade. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

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

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

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.

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.
