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! We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't forget the bug spray, remember FL and bugs go together. :)

Large parking lot of crushed shells. Forget your GPS as it did not work on either RV or Tow. Good WiFi and Cable. Very small beach area, there picture does not really show it. There are other things like a Tiki bar and small marina. We will pay a little more to get a better place. If you are 40 feet or over you may be sticking out into the street. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The drive to Mallory Square in Key West takes 30 to 40 minutes due to traffic in Key West.

Great location. Own beach, pub and pool. Mooring and rentals. Sites are back-in but ours was wide, so plenty of room. They allowed us to move when we explained my mother's mobility issues and we were very near the beach/pub/pool. Genuinely one of the best KOAs. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Whether it is this KOA or any other campground in the Florida Keys, you must book your stay as early as possible. Preferably, several months ahead of time. Especially, during the winter when you should book 6 months ahead of your planned stay or even sooner.

Absolute and total "rip off". Sites are literally inches apart, we could not even let our awning out or it would hit the coach next to us. The ones on our drivers side were so close their TV bothered us constantly and their awning was so close I had to tell them to move it in or it would scrape our coach when the wind blew. For what they charge it should not be considered a KOA because it is a rip off, not worth $35.00 a night! They charged us $115.00 a night and we got a $10.00 KOA Members discount and still it was $105.00 a night plus taxes. I was fed up the second day and went in and told them that we had to leave and cancelled our week there and we went to another RV park in Key West for half the price of Sugarloaf KOA and found big roomy sites. I would never book another stay at this KOA! There was not even a picnic table, but then there was no room to have one either! You cannot get into your site without their guy helping you because you have to pull in and out 20 times or more moving inches at a time to avoid hitting another coach. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

We find this KOA to be run by a good managerial staff. There were people in golf carts buzzing around everywhere. Previous person wrote that security is bad. We see it as KOA staff eyes seemed to be available if needed. We were camped across from the pub. I thought it might be loud/bothersome there, it wasn't though. We found this KOA to be clean/well run/up to date/ (were doing bathroom renovations at main bathhouse) and just seemed to capture the 'laidback nature' of the Keys.

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. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

This park has an excellent location with plenty to do for all ages. Having a beach, pool, restaurant/pub, marina, playground, dog park area and a pedestrian fishing bridge in one location is rare. The sites were very tight which we expected in the Keys. The staff was very friendly and the park was well maintained. We had a back in site along the mangroves/ water with W/E, and these sites seemed to be the biggest sites in the park. I was surprised at how quiet it was after reading previous reviews. We had no noise issues what so ever. The only things that we could find wrong with this park were that the Wi-Fi was all but non-existent and the cable was so snowy that TV was unwatchable. If they made their sites bigger and fixed the Wi-Fi and cabl, this park would be a 10. I would definitely go back. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

I read the previous reviews on this campground before we arrived, but I rationalized that since we were only going to be here 3 nights during the week, we could manage with the noise. I was wrong. The other reviewers were absolutely correct. We had a site just across from the pool (and pub). Two nights of the three, there was live music. The music begins at 7pm and goes until 10:30 or 11:00 and it is l-o-u-d. I can't imagine there is a site in the entire park that is free from it. Worse, by the time the entertainment is done, everyone listening is pretty smashed and spends the next few hours wandering through the campground yelling and carousing. The "quiet time" from 11pm-8am is a joke. The small "beach" is dirt rather than sand but it IS on the water. The pool and hot tub are nice but was always full of kids, so we did not use it. Roads and spaces are quite tight but the staff is very good at helping the rigs maneuver into their space. The staff is all very nice and it appears they are here every season. We enjoyed being so close to Key West but will not be back here again. The inability to get a good night's sleep was just too much. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

Last year we stayed down the road at another park, but we had kids with us this year and decided this was a better choice and it was. Pool is nice and everything was clean and people were very nice. Beach isn't too great (rocky), but fishing pier was really good and easy to access, as was the very nice bait shop. Restrooms were well kept, but I am 5'9" and barely had enough room in the stall. Biggest issue is the size of the sites. We could not open our awning as it would have hit a pole. Another guy's rig didn't even fit and hit a tree limb when they tried to back him in. We did not find the campground to be too loud as others have stated. Even with music in the bar, it was not bad at all, but we were also not that close to the bar/pool either. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

When we first arrived we noticed the nice oceanfront location, the pretty little beach, the small marina, and the pool. Later on all that we noticed was the noise. This campground has a sponsored event nearly every evening. This event is located in the open air bar which is in the middle of the campground. Instead of watching the stars from our camp chairs outside, we were hunkered inside with the windows shut and the A/C on. We were avoiding the call of "B-3" over the loudspeaker from the ongoing bingo game. Later we were avoiding the cursing in high volume from the people who were drunk at the bar. The grounds seem well maintained and employees seem helpful, but the lack of noise enforcement was a real problem. It seemed that the campground is actually encouraging a noise problem. We won't return. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.

The park is neither particularly charming nor particularly ugly and offers the standard you'd expect from a KOA campground. The reason why I give only seven point: You can hear noise from the highway, the sites offer little privacy and WiFi is not for free - given these facts, I think 98 incl. tax is a little exaggerated.

We spent a month here after leaving the resort, about 5 miles down the road. We would have left this KOA after a week, but my husband was in the middle of having dental work done in Key West. The sites at the KOA are incredibly tight. We literally had to walk sideways to get between our rig and the picnic table. Not sure how many times my husband had to help rigs get around the curve (tree in the way) in front of our site. While the park itself is trash free, the back area and county road are full of trash. The park drives are paved but the sites are coral gravel: expect to vacuum/sweep a couple times a day and mop every day. When the wind wasn't blowing, the no see ums would eat you alive. On the positive side, the work campers were an incredibly fun and friendly group. There is a well stocked camp store with reasonable prices. The cafe serves breakfast and lunch every day and is open til 7 three days a week. It serves burgers, chicken wraps, hot dogs, etc., and occasionally has a yummy dinner special. The pub has reasonably priced drinks, bingo on Mondays, and bands several nights a week. (Wouldn't want a site near the pub unless you are a party person due to the noise.) The pub is a hot spot that attracts many locals. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Motorhome.
