The park was nice. We enjoyed our time here with our son. We had a site by the water and that was a treat at all times. We were able to walk into the water, although it was not sandy it was like clay. It was fun. There was a nice breeze. The men's restroom had a strong urine odor for the majority of the stay. And the toilet stalls were not big enough. My son was concerned of anyone walking in while he used it. This is when we asked that he not go there anymore unless there was an emergency. The showers were clean but the curtains were too narrow and there was no privacy to change in either restrooms (female or male). Another good point is that you can just bike or walk to the bridge and fish. My son enjoyed that a lot. There is a grill within walking distance. I did not go to it so have no recommendations on that. I guess that I would come back at some point. There is not much for kids to do here and there is no pool either. I did like that there is security at the entrance and the garbage gets picked up in the morning at your site if you do not want to go for a walk. The beach, well that was not very attractive, it was more like a jump into the ocean with no clarity as to what is underneath. Some people like that, I like to see what is there when I jump. Overall , it was nice. We camped at Knights Key RV Resort and Marina in a Travel Trailer.

It is close to stores and restaurants. Our favorite for breakfast was Stuffed Pig. We had breakfast there several times and it was worth it. Take mosquito spray and lots of sun lotion. Have a rod ready because that is all you can do at this park, besides swim and hang out.

My comments are not up to date and guessing on the rate as we paid by the month. We have been coming to this place a lot since 2001 when we got our RV. We have stayed on the water and in the infield section. We last were there February 2014 and really like this place. Sadly, it has been sold and will be developed into a resort so the park will be gone. We have reserved a site this coming winter. Thank goodness. It is not a fancy rv park and not a resort type facility, but the staff is great, the campers are almost like family and I cannot wait to return. Thank goodness they come and pump you out or we'd have to leave in 4 days. We camped at Knights Key RV Resort and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

The check in lady & twice a day garage pick up was the things that were good about this park. Paid for water front site that turned into a mud hole at low tide with the smell of dead fish. No one there to help find my site & the site required backing in on the blind side, site was level. Bath rooms always had water on the floor, showers didn't have an place to put clean clothes while showering. Bath room had a 25 foot extension cord nailed to the wall to run a window AC...would not stay there again. We camped at Knights Key RV Resort and Marina in a Travel Trailer.

I hesitate to rate this park for fear it will be so full we cannot get a reservation. We've been coming here since 2000, every year but one. This is a laid back, friendly park that is located in a pretty part of this world. They have many activities planned, but the beautiful part is the scenery. Nearby is a great restaurant called the Sunset Grille and Raw Bar, which we have frequented quite a few times. The 7 mile bridge is right here and a great place to walk or ride a bike. It's just like another home to us!!!! We camped at Knights Key RV Resort and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Where to start, First off I paid for an ocean view, premium site and I would of had to get on the roof of the camper to see the water instead we stared at a wall of mangrove trees out of the back and a bunch of stored campers in front, of course they were full and we could not move. Don't get me wrong, they do have some out of this world views in many spots and they paid the same price I did. There is no sewer in the park and the people who left from our spot before we arrived felt compelled to dump gray water before they left and since the sites are all grass it made somewhat of a mess. They do have a honey wagon that drives around pumping poo all day for $10 a pump. Lots of very old trailers and motor homes but lots of high end stuff as well. Site was not level, blocks are a must, levelers will just sink in the ground. Had low voltage on 1 leg of the 50 amp, leg 1 was 124 volts, leg 2 was 106. Told the ladies at the office and they said they would look at it, didn't happen so we left 4 days early with no refund. Not going back. We camped at Knights Key RV Resort and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

We frequent this RV park on an average of 6 times a year. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. A previous review complained of a sewer smell, couldn't be further from the truth. They must have the wrong park. I do wish they had a pool, but you can use the pool at the sunset grill next to the campground.....we have a boat so enjoy staying on the harbor sites with the boat right behind the RV, just hop in and head out for a day of fun on the water in the Florida Keys. Enjoy our morning coffee on the water at sunrise and a glass of wine at sunset, doesn't get better than that. Just a hop skip and a jump to Key West. We camped at Knights Key RV Resort and Marina in a Travel Trailer.

We typically visit this campground around Easter time. It has an Inn that supplies campers with very old pool tables and ping pong tables. They serve breakfast and lunch also. The Inn does close after Easter but is great place to keep the kids busy. The beach is nice (rocky because after all, it is the Keys) and a floating dock (we call it the bird poo dock) is great for tanning or diving. There are not a lot of shade trees although you may find some near site 19. Great place for families. Just before the 7 mile bridge, and gorgeous views of the sunset. Bathrooms are clean most of the time but very old. We camped at Knights Key RV Resort and Marina in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff, sites were level, grass, pad for picnic table. Restrooms and showers need upgrade. Can't say they were dirty, just need attention. Location was great. Tiki bar was good and prices were reasonable. Great place if you are fishing. Now the bad news. Offensive odor most of the time, lots of road noise, no TV reception, no pool. I thought the $70/night was a bit high for what they offer. I would stay here again but think there are other places nicer for same or less money.

Pretty waterfront setting with water views from many areas. There's marina sites if you have a boat. There's also a club room a and tiki bar. The park is pleasant with some trees and grass. Sites are widely different, so be sure to get one that works for your rig. The park was very quiet. Wifi was very good - no cable. We camped at Knights Key RV Resort and Marina in a Motorhome.

Practically all sites are on grassy surfaces, although there are some near the marina area that were gravel. We had an "ocean" site, but had hammock trees behind us so we really couldn't see the water. The restroom/showers were very nice and cleaned regularly. The WiFi signal was the strongest we found on any of the 9 parks we stayed at on this trip. Their Tiki bar was quite active and we attended one of their sunset cookouts. The other guests we met were very friendly and found that many of them have been coming to this park for years. While we aren't into fishing several of the other guests are and told us the fishing was great. We are daily walkers and found the Old 7 Mile Bridge, which is very close to the park, a great place to walk. Even though this place is right along US-1 you can utilize the Old 7 Mile Bridge and sidewalk into Marathon for biking. There are no sewer hookups, but they provide a pumpout service practically any time you need it. They could use some road improvements within the park as it rained one evening and there was standing water, especially around the Tiki bar area. The location of this park is great for exploring the rest of the Keys and it's less than an hour to Key West. We would definitely stay here in the future.

I love this place. It is funky, fun, friendly, and has beautiful scenery. The weather was warm and in fact it got too hot a few days. They have lots of nice activities on a regular basis and the staff and campers are so friendly. The rate is based on a month long stay.

Location great for access to water and Marathon. We had oceanfront site that we pulled into so we had clear view of ocean from our front window. Open oceanfront area at tiki hut for great sunsets. It was awesome. Bathroom/showers small but clean and adequate. Staff very friendly and helpful. Site is dirt but had no problem leveling the RV. Would stay here again.

Rating is for the quality of the campground, not the value. Great location, clean & convenient, plus it is actually a campground rather than the more common Keys mobile home park with RVs packed in. Pros: friendly and helpful staff, shaded sites available at extra cost, some sites are relatively far back from US1 so reasonably quiet. Cons: Expensive, no sewer hookups, dump station is challenging to access, honey wagon available at extra cost, very pricey for what you get, so a poor value. We camped at Knights Key RV Resort and Marina in a Motorhome.

The staff is friendly. The sites are grass and sand with paved roads. The showers were clean with good hot water. The Tiki bar and sunsets were fantastic. We had some power problems when the weather got hot, low voltage. Our rate reflects a stay of a week and the discount. They have several different types of sites depending on the location. Check their rates. They only had 3 of the 4 washers working; they need more, and there always seemed to be a line there. Quiet location. They have pretty good Wi-Fi but the only cable is available in the club house and Tiki bar. No cable hook ups at the site. Verizon MiFi worked great. No sewer but for $10 they'll come around and suck you out or you can go to the dump station. Nice park, nice staff, good location in the central Keys for access to points of interest; reasonable rates for the Keys. Best bet if you can't get into the state parks. I'd be happy to stay here again. We camped at Knights Key RV Resort and Marina in a Motorhome.
