Terrible RV park. Very tight. Junky. No cable even though they advertise it to be available. Management does not enforce leash laws. Unbelievable they can charge these prices. Keep on going. Don't stop here!! - robertsdj

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

Basically a big gravel lot with pedestals and some trees. No pull-through sites. Some sites are double wide. All sites are full hookup/30/50 but utilities are at rear of sites. Better bring extra "stinky tubes" and 1 long or multiple water hoses. Nice pool with a hot tub. Well-stocked store with food, hardware, and trinkets. An open air pub with pizza and wings as their restaurant is only open during the winter, tourist season. Staff seems friendly enough. Laundry is $1.75 wash, $1.00 dry. Propane available at $7.29 per gallon. Showers/bathrooms updated and clean. They have Wi-Fi repeaters all over the place but connecting to the Internet is a challenge. There are primitive tent sites in a treed, shady area. No weekly or monthly rates, only Value Kard (KOA membership) discounts. - StephenK

People are very friendly. There is a pub on the premises! Store is currently undergoing renovation, so their supply is extremely limited. Fabulous location and weather! - Momtotwo

This was our first trip to this campground. We chose a waterfront site with full hook-up. The site was excellent and we shared it with several iguanas. The dog park was clean and there was no "stuff" left behind from previous dogs. The staff were friendly and helpful supplying information about Key West. We will be bringing our boat the next trip and there is separate boat parking close to campsites; launching is free if you are staying there. We will definitely come again! - j&b

We have stayed here now for several visits and usually during their off-season and have been thrilled with this park. This is an owner rental program park, and there are two different groups to rent from. A group of owners broke away from the original rental program and formed their own, and we always rent from this group. They are friendly, very accommodating and are always there to answer any questions and take care of any issues. We were a little disappointed in the overall upkeep of the park, which seemed a bit lacking in attention by the maintenance crew. The pool was extremely cloudy leaving us to wonder if the chemicals were being done correctly and if the pool was actually safe to swim in. The front gate broke while we were here, so the controlled security was not there, but for the most part, these things happen, and we still felt safe. This is a beautiful park....and we WILL stay there again and again! So close to Key West, and many nice restaurants. - Bluebird Owner

This is a super park which has sites that are privately owned and rented out. We had a tiki hut with TV, refrigerator, and ice maker. Also dining table and couch and chairs. We were on the water with a private boat dock and a swim ladder. Only 14 miles to Key West. The staff was great and assisted in parking and hooking up. Although it was pricey it was worth the extra cost. Would stay again. - tlrpilot

One of a kind beautiful on the water campsites. We had
our own Tiki hut and dock. Spotlessly maintained, helpful
courteous staff. Very nice pool.
A few too many barking dogs this visit,
and they allowed a group of four very loud
motorcycles to stay there. However we'd certainly go
back on our next visit, and hope for an improvement. - macandphyl

Some beautiful, very nice waterfront sites with breathtaking views. Fairly close to Key West. Our site was tight for parking, but once parked it fit like a glove. No WiFi. Cable, provided by site owner was dismal. Only one TV station in Key West, but a little pre-planning goes a long way. This is a trailer park that has RV spaces, but most are excellent. Best RV park value in the Key West area. - Scenic Cruiser

Full disclosure. We own an Rv lot at Venture Out, and obviously we like it well enough to have purchased one.
There is free Wi-Fi, but it's at the clubhouse only.
As far as pets. Two pets are allowed. Cats are NOT allowed to roam, and will be trapped and removed, so BEWARE. I don't think the park adequately explains this to people and I want people to know not to let your cat outside.
Dogs are not allowed to walk with you around the property. You can walk from your lot to the gate and outside the park, to where there is a dog walk area along the main road.
Yes, the sites are small. It's the Keys and land is very expensive. Some RV sites may be difficult to maneuver your RV into, so be aware when booking a site. There are "dry lots" and waterfront lots. The ocean view sites are spectacular, but can be pretty windy. The canal lots can have spectacular ocean front views, or views of the seawall behind you. Not all are the same. Be aware when booking a site.
The park rules state only one motorized vehicle per site (other than a motor home). If your RV and vehicle don't fit on the lot, you have to park the vehicle in the overflow lot. BEWARE of this when you reserve a site. The overflow is $2-$4 a night depending on the size.
New rules effective may 15, 2015. Venture Out has become so popular and many people spend their entire winters here, bringing all their toys, which include extra cars, motorcycles, boats, cargo trailers. This has resulted in a parking nightmare. The community Board of Directors has mandated the parking rules be enforced. Effective now, you will only be allowed to park in the overflow lot, a maximum of two weeks in any 6 month period. - krnlueck

A little pricey for our standards, but I guess not when you compare it to other RV parks near Key West in the height of the season. Stayed here at the end of February because we could not get into any of the Florida State Parks in the Keys. We had visited the "Fish Camp" restaurant here before, but never camped. They did a lot of work on the RV sites since our last visit - It seems they have cleaned out most of the semi-permanent residents, and are catering more to the shorter stay business. They have put down lots of hard packed gravel on the roads and sites, a new brick walkway along the canal, new electrical service, newly remodeled bathrooms and showers, and some of the sites have permanent "tiki hut" shelters and palm trees for some shade. The access is tight - we had to get some other campers to move their cars so we could back into our site. Once in the site, it was relatively roomy - there were quite a few big rigs there. It is true that the electric pedestals and water spigots might end up at the wrong side of your site, it's nothing a proper extension cord or hose won't fix. The staff and other campers were very friendly. The main walkway through the sites is the brick walk along the water, so be prepared for people walking back and forth across the waterfront end of your site. Some of the campers staying in the non-waterfront sites said the bugs were bad at dusk, but we had no problems out by the water in the breeze. The park is right at the end of one of the runways of the nearby Naval Air Station, so you will get an air show (and the noise that goes with it) all day long. You sort of get used to it, and they stop around sunset. They have rental kayaks available, and there are plenty of places to explore. There is a public beach a mile or so down the road, but like most places in the keys, it is more of a shoreline than a beach. The restaurant is a popular local gathering place - especially at happy hour - the food is very good and fairly priced. They have live entertainment on the weekends. No problem with the dogs, but as already said, the only real place to walk them is out along the road - there are no real grassy spots. The Wi-Fi was only reliable when you got up close to the main building, but they do have tables there where you can sit with your laptop. Some campers said they had trouble with the cable TV, but we got like 50 stations without the converter box that they will loan you if you need it. - WiliWali

We stayed for 3 nights during the week. Sites are roomy and clean. If waterfront, can swim/fish right behind site. Office staff very friendly and knowledgable about surrounding Keys. Treated like a native (from fla.,but not a local) at the bar. Everyone was really friendly and the food was excellent. Should have stayed a week to catch weekend BBQ. Will definitely return. Pet walk, way out front kept me from giving a 9. - phnz1

I gave the rating a nine only because it does not have 50 amp service. Other than that it is a ten. Oh yeah: a 50 amp system (like mine) will operate both a/c units as long as not too many other electric appliances are running at the same time. (ie: electric water heater, microwave, and hair dryer.) Yes it is tight, unpaved, and the hook-ups are set up for back in only even on the waterfront, but if you are smart enough to carry sewer, water, cable, and electric extensions you can still see the water from your windshield. If you want service on a silver platter and a space all to yourself, this is NOT the RV park for you. However if you want to experience the unspoiled, laid back, natural atmosphere coupled with the RV comradely of your fellow RVers as we do, this is the place! The gang at Geiger are the best. We feel as much at home here as we do at home. Our experiences every year here, are fantastic. Bring a kayak or canoe as I do and really explore. - giezerglide

We stayed here the entire month of January. People are very friendly and helpful. It's convenient to the Winn-Dixie and 2 drug stores. Key West is only 25 miles away. There are so many Key deer around, they are almost a nuisance. We enjoyed petting and feeding them. We had no problem parking our 40' rig on B-6. They have cable and Wi-Fi, and they both work great. The electric and cable is included in the price. We would stay here again. - Dennis Reid
Oct 2009 - $20.00
We weren't sure about this park when we arrived. We ended up in the back which is tight navigation. But once we got set up, we were happy. The pool is small and needs chairs but is clean and refreshing. The Key Deer come around every morning and evening and just hang out. The bus stop to Key West is just 1/2 block away. For the Keys, this is a reasonably priced campground. Sites are small but that's most sites in the Keys. The cable and Wi-Fi worked fine and the people are nice. We would camp here again. - RV Gypsy
Aug 2016 - $100.00
Nice park with all facilities. We had a back-in site near the office because we wanted to be close to the gate so we wouldn't be far from the bus stop to go down town Key West. We decided to drive, the trip by car is only 15 minutes and the bus is 45 minutes and we had no trouble finding parking on side streets two blocks from Duval St. Lots of restaurants and sidewalk bars. Stayed 3 nights. The event that week was Ernest Hemingway look alike contest at Sloppy Joe's Restaurant and Bar. - Arnold Tobias

Boyd's Campground is GREAT!!! The staff is nice, office hours are great (open until 10pm). After office hours, security is on duty overnight. Security staff is also very friendly and helpful.
We went to the pool numerous times. The pool is clean and relaxing. The tiki hut is great as well. The laundry room is clean and security works with you if you need to use it past hours for emergencies or what may be.
We have a 40ft 5th wheel and we consider the sites comfortable and the neighbors were always friendly.
We have our own bathroom so we didn't use their facilities. However, we did see staff constantly cleaning the facilities.
The only con about the campground was our disappointment when we found out that we couldn't bathe in our waterfront spot or anywhere on the ground. This however, is not the fault of Boyd's. It's due to the water in the keys. I will say that our area did have a funky smell due to exactly this, the water. However, it wasn't anything that we couldn't live with.
Closet beach is 2 miles away, Smarhers beach. - On_my_whey

Glad we did not visit during peak times cause it would not have been nice. We did arrive on Sunday afternoon of Memorial Day weekend. Wow, never seen anything like it. A mix of all camper types: but an amazing number of tents with their vehicles hanging out onto the one way road. Had to ask two people to move vehicles just to get to our site, then no way to back our 36 ft motor home into the site without asking someone else to move a vehicle. The next afternoon all the tents were gone, whew, I was fretting how we were going to get out in couple of days. But turned into a quiet campground, gravel sites, fairly level, full hook ups. Off season, water front site $110.00 per night. One of the nicer, closer campgrounds to Key West. I recommend staying here, but NOT on a holiday weekend. - GlobeTrotterRV3

Spacious sites but park is sandwiched between two trailer parks. Area outside park is rundown, and we wouldn't walk at night. No amenities. Barking dogs in neighborhood, chickens/roosters crowing early in the morning, airport traffic started early but wasn't all day. Navy training jets often drowned out normal conversation one day until after dark. Only good point is how close it was to Key West and how close it was to two good restaurants: Hogfish Bar and Grill and Rusty Anchor. Lazy Dogs outdoor water sports rental location also close. - limey84

Very nice, a short distance to Key West, no amenities but very quiet and very clean. Wi-Fi works fine and lots of channels on cable. No showers or restrooms. - ant1

This is really two parks. Sites 1-5 are large back in sites with not much of a view. Sites 6-11 are pull in ocean front sites. 1-5 should be rated at 7 for the con reasons to follow. 6-11 should be rated 10+ but for a couple of the cons that follow. Pros: all sites (except 11) are very wide, large concrete pad for coach and outside sitting, good dependable power, water and cable, views from 6-11, paved road into campground, ample room to park 2 or more toads. Cons: no bath house or laundry, Wi-Fi was not working (was to be fixed and I am sure it will be), not the best of neighborhoods (don't want to walk off the property at night). Having said this we must also say that this is one of the best laid out campgrounds we have stayed in. Owner is on premises for winter season and is very friendly and knowledgeable. Would we stay again? You betcha, already paid for next year. BTW, the rate was a 5 night minimum at $100 per night due to Fantasy Fest and worth every dime of it. . - Scott Charlton

Very hard campsite to rate. I could give this park anything from a 3 to an 8. First of all the good bits. Location to Key West is fantastic. You will not get closer to Key West at any other campground. Took us 20 mins to cycle in, 15 mins to cycle to the beach. The campground is right next to the bus stop, for $2 each way or $8 a week you can catch the bus into Key West. It takes about 30 mins each way. The worst thing about the campground is noise. The bins are emptied 4 or 5 times a week at 5am in the morning, and the noise is enough to wake the dead. Once awake it is hard to get back to sleep because of the US1 noise and the cockerels. If you are an early riser then this will not be a problem to you. The campground is on Stock Island which can be described as a high price slum area. I have witnessed no problems, but if you like nice surroundings then avoid this place as it is not a pretty area. Restrooms and showers are just about acceptable. Laundry room is good, and lady in the office is friendly enough. Biting insects are prevalent so if you are prone to being bitten then take plenty of precautions. Would I stay here again? No but we visited another park up the road which is $40 more a night and although better, I certainly would not pay $100 to stay there as it is in a poor neighborhood and sites are quite cramped. - brfcfan

Nice campground about 20 miles from Key West. Very narrow access roads with some trees on the edge and vehicles parked so it is difficult to turn corners and back in. We have a 32' 5th wheel. They will park it for you for a fee. They have a nice pool and laundry, cable works good, Wi-Fi is okay. Showers and restrooms cleaned daily. Key deer visit the camp sites daily. - Charlie M.

BPKFL is unlike any other campground we have ever stayed. Many of the campers have been coming for 20 years or more and some are second generation campers. Many of the campers are snowbirds who camp for months. I'm normally bothered by this because the sites tend to get junky looking. That isn't the case here. People have their decorations, but they are done in either a tasteful or silly way, so they actually add to the community feel. Although there are many snowbirds there are also children and young folks. Sites are very tight, and many rigs require tractor help to get situated. The sites are somewhat larger in rustic. Generators are not allowed so most campers in rustic use solar panels. Solar panels are adequate for most purposes, but cannot support air conditioning, so it can get pretty hot and muggy even in Feb.
We stay in rustic. In rustic there is a wonderful, welcoming sense of community. Many folks are there to fish. We don't but our neighbors kept us supplied from their daily catch. The activities are wonderful and frequent and just about everyone participates. Pie night is not to be missed-a dollar for real homemade pie and ice cream!
The bathrooms are immaculate. The staff is constantly cleaning. The pool is beautiful. There is a small beach for sunning and relaxing, but it is not really a swimming beach. There is also an observation deck overlooking a national wildlife refuge, often full of birds.
For any sort of extended stay you need to book a year in advance. Campers on site are given the option of renewing for the following year, so people trying to make long term reservations will generally have to go on a wait list until things sort out.
No dogs are allowed because the endangered Key deer wander around the campground.
We have booked 5 weeks for next year. - Carol49

This is our favorite place ever. Super clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots of events for all ages. Key Deer are amazing! Even if you don't have a boat there are rentals on the property. Lots of places to bike. Close to everything in the lower Keys. We can't say enough about how much we love it here. - Ritzroamer
