3 Parks near Miami, Florida

We came to Gator Park to see the Gator show. It was convenient to stay here, as Gator Park was located halfway between our two stops. We stayed for a night and while the campground is not luxurious, we did not have any issues. There was no laundry room or central bathrooms. Our spot, #20, only had electric and water but we did see some sites with sewer. After the park closed at 5:00 PM, the area calmed down considerably and overnight we were not disturbed. I think $30 a night for what is offered is a bit high. $25 would be more appropriate. Would I recommend this park? For a single night. Would we come back? Not likely. We will explore another campground next time. - Dr. Moreau

First, let me say the area is beautiful. Just a few miles west are some great air boat rides and Shark Valley is the place to go to see abundant wildlife. However, this RV park is by far the worst I have ever seen. The staff was rude and indifferent. The road was in poor condition and the grass at the campsites was tall. The water constantly looked and smelled rusty. It was so bad it even stained our shower and commode. Some full time residents were dumping waste water on the ground and a strong odor emanated from that. The power was unreliable as well. As we were leaving we discovered there was no water available at the dump station to clean our hose or the area. If you must stay here be sure to bring your own water and don't even try to bathe in that stuff. If you can at all, skip this place entirely. I sure do wish we had. - User2063

Terrible! Stayed because we took the gator tour and airboat ride (which were very good). Park itself was horrible: dirty, rusty water, too rough with mainly full time tenants. Not comfortable. Full timers had run of things and did not leash pets. Not returning. - Motorhome Madness

Miami-Dade County Park. Very quiet, well kept/neat & pleasant park w/a pleasant staff. Older park so the sites are short and don't have patios (except handicap sites). I had to "overhang" our 39' 5er off the rear of the pad & still had to park the truck sideways in front. Nice pool (11-5 only) w/lifeguard. No cable but free WiFi. Heavy traffic once outside the park. Adjacent to the Miami Zoo. Abundant/variety of shopping is close. Great place to start for day trips to the Keys (45 min. to Key Largo) if you don't want to stay in the expensive resorts on the keys. We stayed a month for $565 including taxes. - rracer5

This was our second time to stay here and we will be returning next year. It is great camping area in a county park next to the zoo. The sites are large in a circle formation, so you get good views of the trees and grass and not your neighbor. There is a nice pool, clean showers and restrooms, and adequate laundry facilities. The free wifi is supplied by the county and they block Netflix, but in general we got good reception. - A-J

This is one of those hidden gems you hear about on the road. We chose to stay here since we couldn't find a reasonably priced campground in the Keys with availability and are glad we did. The sites are arranged in a cul-de-sac layout with sites in the middle as well. Everything about the park was great. Power, water, wifi and laundry. Its about an hour drive to Key Largo from the campground so day trips were frequent. Its on the south side of Miami so getting to the beach area or downtown made for quite a trip. Lots of traffic around the city, but a little less near the campground. At the time we were there, it was full of mostly snowbird residents and was very quiet with lots of nice people to chat with. Many were amazed we got our reservation on such short notice, only about a week prior. You just can't beat the price for the location and time of year, the rate is based on a weekly rate. If we return to Miami, we will definitely stay at Larry & Penny Thompson Park again! - pfogleboch

Park is in the middle of nowhere, at least 15 minutes on country roads to anything. Sites are grass and ours was not level and became a lake during the rain. Lots of biting bugs. Office staff not friendly. Weird layout with 8 roads into the sites and one to exit, all one lane. There is a large play ground that includes a tennis court but it is not fenced so never saw anyone playing. - kegmaster

From the looks of it, this appears to be a former KOA. It does not matter because arriving in this campground and seeing the grounds was a pleasant surprise. This is quite a large RV park and most of the sites are generous in size. We stayed here for several days in a 45ft motorhome on a site with 50A service. Finding this park is easy. Just follow the directions. The park is easy to enter and the interior paved roads are wide enough to move around and get onto your site.
One very unique feature found in this park is a walking / running / biking loop which goes along the entire perimeter of the campground. The total distance is almost 1 mile.
The official address for the park is in Miami and it is bordering on to Homestead. Miami is a huge city. Getting into town from the campground takes about 30 minutes. There is tons of stuff to do there and this RV park is a very good base to stay at if you wish to explore Miami.
Nearby are 2 Walmarts, a Publix grocery store as well as a Walgreen and CVS.
This is a RV park we will gladly visit again in the future. - Olivia Las Vegas

A very nice park. Very friendly staff. Had a great site, 255. Lots of shade and right across from a big field plus the playground. Great for the kids. Only complaint is no golf carts allowed. I don't understand this rule if your cart is insured. Good water pressure, good sewer, good cable, good electric but wifi was a joke. Signal was very poor. Overall a nice experience. We will be back. - AlexJ
