If you are an Elk and enjoy the Gulf, be sure to try this lodge. They have about 12 spaces with 50 amp power and water, no sewer. You park within 100' of the bay. They have a fishing pier and private beach with crystal clear water. The lodge is inviting and has continuous events. The hosts, Patty and Tim are the best. Try it. - ranchoddellago

Open to Elk members only. Small campground in back of lodge on water - beautiful views, for sure. State there are 10 sites, but really only 8. Best place, price-wise, to stay if eligible. Would give a 10, however the hosts force us to lower the rating - they've been there too long - difficult to describe: nice enough people, but they keep photos & records of every visitor (a bit creepy), other examples not worth mentioning. Other guests great & friendly group. Good Verizon 4G coverage. We will stay here again if in the area. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

Tight, Tight, Tight. Pulled in the entrance when I arrived just to find out my campsite required us to come in the exit. Friendly people helped us get into a very tight campsite. Overall the park is very clean. The the main road was recently paved. Beware of the entrance it has concrete walls that have a 10 foot opening. - Rusty S

Stayed four nights near the water, gulf side. Small campground, great staff. Boat ramp, pier, large covered picnic/gazebo. Great spot for watching sunsets. Clean campground/beach. Saw a manatee and dolphins. Stayed in the A row between two permanent campers at the end. The one that was there woke us up at 2am banging on something with their friends, didn't leave until 3:30. Had to put the ac on to cover the noise. Several times during the day their music was so loud we had to move down to the gazebo to have a normal conversation. Should of moved after the first incident. Would go back if they weren't there, or maybe stay in the C row away from them. This could be a great place to chill. Met some really nice people there. Nice central location in Key Largo. - Kamper123

The park is very tight, which includes both the roads and the sites. The park is old and funky with a noticeable lack of street appeal. Once inside the wall, you see that there is regular maintenance going on and there is nothing to fear. The pavilion on the water is nice; as are the residents, many whom are snowbirds. Note, because the spaces are small, you are subjected to your neighbor's habits. We were sited next to chain smokers and couldn't ever open our windows on the left side. Park management is very nice and they do a great job getting you in and out of the tight park. The internet service is surprisingly fantastic! - Maxine and Cinder

Excellent amenities. Big sites. Right on water's edge, bay side. We staged from her to do Miami, the Everglades, Marathon and Key West. The caveat here is the park has been purchased to redevelop into individual Vacation Homes. Development did not go as originally planned so has reopened as RV campground. Supposedly this RV resort will only be open until May 1st. This was high season, so rates were highest we have ever paid. Was able to get reservations within a week of arrival. Only 1/3 full. - Mike from Bama

Although their ads tend to exaggerate the offerings, it is still a nice place to stay in Key Largo. The sun drenched beach described is really a manmade patch about 20 feet wide with 2 chairs on it. The spaces are very large and can accommodate the boats and trailers which many seem to have. Hookups are excellent with one exception. Each has a 50, 30 and 110 outlet along with 2 water spigots and sewer connection. The only problem was the cable not working. When asked they said something about a storm and a bad relationship with the vendor and they would get us a 100 foot cord to hook into the next site. After repeated calls they never came through with anything. Fortunately satellite reception was good to watch the olympics. Story is after only 3 years they may develop into a hotel and resort. Would stay again, but it is pricey... - BellasRV

Imagine a huge white gravel parking lot with diagonal hedges in rows. If you are not in one of the 14 waterfront sites, you will be camping on this gravel between these hedges. The waterfront area is well landscaped and lovely. The pool overlooks the Buttonwood Sound. When we were there, both the pool water and the air were 84 degrees, not very refreshing. Our campsite was an end unit where the road turned left in front of us. Because the units were set out on a diagonal, the right side of our site was barely long enough to accommodate our car, while the left was longer than our 30 foot motor home. Knowing now that the park is being closed and turned into condos (or hotel depending on who you talk to), the park has a very temporary look to it. Outside of the waterfront (which is lovely) this is just a lot of gravel. If you are considering this before it closes in September 2016 - get a waterfront site or look someplace else. - ShoreXplorers

This CG is a gated resort of 98% permanent units. From a bicycle ride-around, I'd say that there are only about a half-dozen available "camping" lots. Reservations highly recommended. Day use visitors are mostly there for the marina to launch boats. Staff are nice but oriented to their long-term residents. Lots of people-noise, particularly loud music. Available sites are level, gravel with FHU/30/50 with a concrete patio. No fire rings. Sites are very tight and roadways are narrow - no pull-thrus. Parking my 40' fiver was challenging and I was on a corner, giving me some wiggle room. Nice pool but no available car parking (golf cart parking only). I recommend bicycles. We were in site 323, back-in, right on the water with breath-taking sunset vistas - well worth the parking hassle. - StephenK

This campground is NOT a campground. It's a colony of 5th wheels parked permanently with enough space to park a boat or a car by their side. Most people have converted this space into some sort of living space that varies from carports to tiled and permanent structures. The property is divided by a canal lined with boats. The place is tight, over crowded, and incredibly noisy since playing music VERY LOUDLY in the RVs, boats, and monster trucks that cruise the narrow roads night and day seem to be the main pastime.
So if you come all the way to Key Largo looking for relaxing days, lovely sunsets and gentle tropical nights, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.
If you want to party, scream instead of talk, and pretty much experience what it is to live in a foreign colony, then you will love it.
Whatever you do, stay away from site 325. Even party people must sleep at some time, but this people play think they are running a 24/7 salsa club and the speakers are kept at their capacity all day long.
We were looking forward to enjoying the sunset. There is no place reserved for this purpose.
It is not a dog friendly place. You have to pay $5.00 fee per pet and there is not one inch of green space for the dog to do its thing. - Catalina W

The site's are very tight because of the patio being in the middle of the site. The roads are too narrow to try to back into the sites because of the many permanent residents parking ever where. Loud music played until the wee hours of the morning. The pool however was very large and nice. - Traveling Fool

The sites on the water are beautiful. The waterfront site has a tiki on the canal and a dock to keep your boat at. The view across the water is beautiful. Total enjoyment. - Sunseekers RV Park

We had a nice level graveled site. Services were easy to access.
Park in general could use some updating, seasonal residents have been allowed to let there properties fall into disrepair. Our neighbours looked like hoarders.
Nice pool area.
Park is conveniently located can easily walk or cycle to the grocery store. - Our-Wandering-Casa

Camped here two weeks in February 2016 and LOVED it! The campground is an older property and well maintained. Beautiful new pool area, Wifi lounge, two small (non swimming) beaches great for launching kayaks, or just spending a lazy afternoon at the beach. (Boat launch also!) The people that run the place, and all the staff could not have been more helpful. My vehicle sat for all the two weeks that I stayed here, because we rode our bikes everywhere. Groceries near by, Kmart and many other stores in the plaza 1/4 mile away. Bike trails run all along the business section, so you can explore and shop from your bike. LOVE Key Largo and LOVE this Kampground!!! - JeffKruzic

Stayed here a couple of nights and enjoyed our stay. Had a few OTA tv channels and decent Verizon service. The campground and facilities were very nice including the visitor's Center and aquarium. Sites are quite close together, apologized to our neighbors for hooking up sewer hose while they were sitting at their picnic table nearby. Bugs weren't bad given the proximity of water. We would stay here again if in the area. - jtl2

Campgrounds in the Keys are pricey, so snagging a site in a state park is like winning the lottery. John Pennekamp Coral Reef SP is VERY busy with a near constant coming and going of campers. The sites are full hookups. Sites are close with vegetation between them and to the rear. The park staff provides nature walks. The visitor center has a small aquarium that is a nice surprise. While there are some trails to walk among the mangroves, this park has a lot of concrete and pavement. While I'm glad I stayed there, I will search for other parks in south Florida that offer more space and give a me a feeling of being in nature rather than such an urban environment. - SunStar203

We have stayed here twice but will not stay again.
Campground is old and needs a lot of work. Sites are right on top of each other! While I do understand that RV Sites in Florida are "small", the sites here are "smaller".
Majority of "Campers" are either "Seasonal" or "Residents". - Mcpowder

This is a very friendly campground and the manager, is terrific. The sites are extremely close together, it's basically a trashy looking campground, extremely difficult to access the highway or move in and out of the campground. We very much enjoyed the other campers and the view of the water. It is not a place I will be running back to but if in the area, I would not have a problem staying there again. - Sunshine8363

This campground was good for a weekend get away, with the ocean view it was nice. However the park itself was a bit to noisy for me. - Chris B.

We stay for two months in the winter, so we might have a different point of view from someone coming down for the first time. Yes the sites are very close to gether, but we don't come to Florida in the winter time for the size of the site. The weather is wonderful, the food is out of this world. And the vast majority of the people that work in Fiesta Key are very very nice. The people that you meet (Your neighbors) are also terrific. So, when you add up the beautiful weather, the terrific people and the incredible food. That's why we like Fiesta Key so much. Plus.... Location, location, location! - WMSmith

Passport America use restricts site selection to the back-in section that doesn't have sewer connections. Absent PA, this place is too expensive. The sites in this area are very close together. 4 sites share a utility connection point so it is on the wrong side for two users and requires running long power cables and hose. It does have good cable TV. No WIFI, but AT&T data worked fine. The showers were clean but really need updating, and had no amenities at all: no soap dish, stool, even no clothes hooks.
The original site we were given was unusable because neighbors had encroached. Several sites were open so we moved. Management was certainly helpful, but the place really needs an escort service to insure that incoming campers set up correctly. Given how tight the spaces are, conflicts must be frequent.
The site was too narrow to get our big awning out, but it was so windy that we wouldn't have used it anyway. I had to trim a couple of limbs to clear the slides. Our mirrors hung over the end of the site which was supposed to accommodate 45'.
The park has three large tent camping sections that were very busy, a small marina where boats on trailers were coming and going and a small restaurant and bar. All together a very busy place on the weekend: lots of kids riding bikes, radios, grills going, family groups , etc.
That all said, the setting is spectacular, with panoramic views of the ocean complete with gorgeous sunsets. Our site was one row back from the waterfront sites and we had water views. - bobcovey
