The price for tent camping in proximity to Miami can not be beat. We were pleasantly surprised with a pool and an air conditioned common room with free WiFi. It's an RV park with RV's arranged in pods. It has really cheap rates and is run by the county. Tent camping is only allowed in the designated field which is... More

Wonderful campground at a very reasonable price! Unique arrangement of the RV sites in cul-de-sacs (which they call "pods"), with several bath houses/laundry/clothes lines throughout the park. Sites were gravel with some shade. We were a little disappointed that there weren't any fire rings. Nice walking trails in the park (just outside of the campground). Be forewarned, it will take...

The facilities are VERY NICE! There are approx 3 laundry/bath houses spaced out within good walking distance. We loved seeing the unique way others made there RV spot a home. Nothing looked run down. Grounds were well kept. Planned activities. We would definately come back. This is a great place and the price is good too. WiFi free and very... More

This place is focused on RV business and is throwing us tenter's a bone. No organized sites. It's a piece of land in some tree cover with a few grills and tables spread about. But lots of room and at $17 a night with all the facilities is really a great score this close to Miami. We will be staying... More

This visit we didn't camp or go to the beach area, but instead hiked the trails. I had not been to this place since I was little. When I was little we often swam at the beach area and used the water slides. My summer camps and schools used to visit this site often as well. It is one of... More

There is not really another choice in Miami for tenters, but for $16.95/n with tax, there is nothing to complain about. The tent campsites are on a big field with trees and you basically just look for a spot you like. They have tables and grills spread around in that field and you just pick one, pitch your tent and...

Well this place is pretty primative. Wifi near the office, no cable, I have no clue why anyone would put posts that are three feet tall near the parking pads so if you an RV forget using your slide outs. On the good side the kid at the desk, Chris was polite and efficient, he even refunded our money when... More

We have stayed here three times for 3-5 days each time. It is located in southwest Miami and is a good location to access a number of Miami places. We have family in a nursing home close by which makes it very convenient. We have found the spaces easy to get a 35' fifth wheel into. Hook ups are easy... More
