Would like to give two ratings for this park. Campground itself is 2 stars in terms of 'camping' experience, but the overall park is 4 star. Campground: I must say the facilities were good, washrooms were good (larger washroom was messier than the smaller one though), laundry facilities at large washroom were convenient, and we felt secure because of gate...

This campground was such a disappointment. Sites are very narrow, with no consideration for slides. While it does have full hook ups, they are very poorly designed. Sewer hook ups for your neighbors are sited right in your front door. Water is on opposite side from electric. It's a good quarter mile hike to the beach. Park itself is nice,... More

Would recommend this state park for those beginners to advanced snorkeling enthusiasts. Smaller beaches for sun dwellers as well as shaded spots with picnic tables. Very pleasant area to spend a Floridian afternoon

This was our second trip to the park. Last time we were here we went snorkeling from shore which was disappointing. I would recommend that you take the boat out if you want to snorkle. We did all the trails in the park and loved being able to identify all the trees. We enjoyed a picnic lunch at one of... More

Nice Campground close to the marina and dive shop. Clean facilities and friendly staff. Comment for campground administration: Why close the toilet/showers for 3 collective hours of cleaning starting at 9:30am when guests are getting ready for activities/check-out? Why not clean between 1pm and 4pm when guests are most likely to be out and about?

Starting out, our campsite is large enough for our 36.5 ft RV and we can park our car in front of the RV. There is even some space behind a tree for more room to place our car hauler. The site is #36. This is one of the few Florida State Park campsites we've found that has full hookups including... More

Find the time to visit John Pennekamp state park and do yourself the favor of booking a snorkeling trip. The campsite loop is packed tightly but not to worry, the rest of the park has plenty of space to breathe. We put our kayaks in the water as soon as we arrived and enjoyed paddling the mangrove lined canoe trail,... More

We had looked forward to our camping trip to John Pennekamp in Key Largo for over a year and had planned to stay four nights. We set up camp on a site which has a stream behind it. At first I thought this would be a plus but it was NOT. Apparently the stream contains sewer water, or at least... More

Although nature is just great around the Keys, ocean life was a bit disappointing. Especially when you visited the blue hole is Dahab... But we had a great time, nice captain on our boat.. Just another lovely day!
