This is an older park, only about 18 miles outside of Key West. It's an older park but the folks are quite friendly. There seem to be a lot of permanents there, and quite a few seasonal renters. I wouldn't recommend a big rig, since many of the turns are quite sharp, and one of the roads is a dead end, with no way of turning around. In other words, if you want to check out the park, go by car, bike or on foot. Just don't drive your rig in and expect an easy way out. There is always something going on at Lazy Lakes or at the adjacent KOA, which apparently has a full bar and is open to LL visitors. It was expensive for us, but everything in the Keys seems to be expensive. It was nice to spend Christmas in the Keys, though. Our rig is 38' long. - Gus the Fireant
Very nice quiet campground. Sites are gravel roads are paved. Pool is great. The Wi-Fi worked good for us. We enjoyed our evening walks around the Lake. You will need bug protection. Staff and fellow campers were all very friendly. It appears there are a lot of permanent campers here. We would stay here again. - lostagain
This is not a park for big rigs. Although people were friendly the park is run down and most of the sites had very old trailers on them that looked like they had not moved in 50 years. - teapartier
This KOA is no exception. You are a sardine in a tin can. They pack them in tight to maximize the number of sites that they can rent. The grounds are kept clean and the ever present staff on golf carts are very friendly and helpful.
What is not so nice about this park is that you are essentially parking your RV on a huge parking lot covered with crushed Limestone (Limestone = very dusty!). If it were not for the power pedestals, you would not know where your site begins and ends.
Except, for and along the park perimeter, there are hardly any trees. Therefore, no shade.
We stayed here in a 45ft motorhome on a site with 50A service near to the entrance. This was good because you definitely want to stay far away from the opposite end near the marina and the on-site pub, sites 118 / 117 / 116 etc. as well as the opposite row sites 119 / 120 / 121 etc. Reason being, those sites are pretty much adjacent to the on-site sewage plant and, to put it mildly, the area smells like you know what.
I pity the people who rent one of the KOA Rental "Kabins" consisting of actual Airstream trailers. The trailers look very nice and well kept, but they are immediately across from the sewage plant.
This KOA has an on-site pub with live band entertainment. We spent one Wednesday evening in the pub, having a couple of beers, listening to the music and watching the people.
However, given the location of this KOA being quite a distance from Key West (about a 15-20 minutes drive), I would look for alternatives. One of them is on Stock Island, which is right outside KW about 4-5 miles away. - Olivia Las Vegas
We stayed here in Late January of 2015. Staff is excellent and very friendly. Access for big rigs is about as unfriendly as can be. There are many big rigs here but nothing about the place makes it easy to maneuver. So much so the staff are adamant and insist on helping to get you parked. The sites are so tight they want to ensure there are no mistakes backing into the site. Visually the place is clean and well kept. There is forever traffic and staff golf carts running around. They go by so frequently the trash policy is to simply put it out front between dawn and dusk and it is typically picked up in a few minutes which was nice. Pool and spa are beautiful and excellent. Pool was wonderfully heated. WIFI is evident everywhere but not enough bandwidth for much more that emails. Cable is limited to a handful of channels and over the air TV Reception is non existent. Both Sprint and Verizon cell phone service were fair. We came here because like nearly everyone else it is 20 min from Key West. There is an Open Air Pub and a Marina and a beach and a cafe all of which lend a nice convenience to the stay. The pub had live music on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 7PM till 10PM, which is heard pretty much throughout the park however the 10PM shutdown is reasonable to us. The most disagreeable thing to us was the tightness of the sites. It is not like camping but more like a small city. After a couple weeks I could not wait to get out of the claustrophobic site. Also all sewer connections are at the very back of the site. Bring a long hose to reach the back of your unit plus a few feet. This RV Park, like most of the others in the area knows that it is all about location during the winter snowbird months and like the other RV parks in the area the prices are high and cramming sites in helps them do what they are in the business of doing....make money. We would stay here again, but only after exhausting most other parks in the area, which is how we ended up here this time. Finally, Google Maps insists on bringing up an erroneous address for this place which leads you wrong if using the Google maps address. The CORRECT address is: 251 State Road 939 Sugarloaf Key, FL 33042. - Denny Pike
We find this KOA to be poorly run in terms of bathrooms and security. Not sure why there is a security hut and no gates and no one manning it. Bathrooms were only cleaned once per day when they needed tending at least 3-4 times per day. At times some of the toilets were plugged for a whole day as no one ever checked on them. It seems a money grab as there were so many tenters and only a few bathrooms. Not even bathrooms in the way back area for tenters. They brought every bit of mud into the showers and bathrooms with them. Terrible bathroom monitoring! Our price was based on an ad in a Florida camping magazine so we cannot say that is the price very often. The pool is very nice and they have a nice bar attached to it with a small restaurant. When we arrived one other camper told us.. "Oh, anything goes here. No one ever checks!" We had tenters beside our RV who had 3 tents, 2 trucks a dog, and 10 people in these tiny spots and they talked loudly and laughed until 1:30 am. Security is joke. Very disappointed in this KOA. - Euri
