“Baaad luck. with sun sun shining this should be nice.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

I should have done something wrong to Key West as the two days I stayed there were heavely non-stop-rain. Grey sky and no possibility to enjoy the leandscape as also the streets were plenty of water. Due to this I think that my experience in this Fishing Lodge could have been better. Anyway facility seems to be really a quiet place where to have a relaxing and peacfully stay. Rooms are a bit aged but functional with furbished kitchen and oven. On the backdoor mine had wooden table and face a little channel. So with sunny days you can eat outside and enjoy the landscape. There is also a little market along the lobby and some shared rooms where to meet with other customers. good location 25 mins drive to key West and a perfect stop should you be interested in watching the Key West' deers (I met 3 of them while withdrawing along the main street - amazing.

I really do love this place. I think it's a great place to begin a family tradition as my parents did for us. The property is always maintained and kept nice, they are always improving things and keeping things up to date (without losing the camping feeling). They hold lots of events both for kids and adults, some you really look forward to every year, for me it was always the "Lobster Hop". The staff is nice and friendly and they remember your names and faces.

I have also stayed in one of their upstairs room above the store, which I thought was pretty nice and comfortable. They even left a nice bag with goodies out for us in our room which I thought was a great touch!

Overall this is a great place to stay if you are looking for a laid back, real florida keys vacation without a lot of fluff. Just a lot of good times and good company.

This place is a reitrement community however is open to all. It is a place to relax. If you want to go up to Key West you are 30 miles Noth of it. The staff are excellent and the snow birds are all great and know how to have a good time. There are a lot of activities in the evenings. If you like to fish then you are in a great place. Lots of fish on the coral reef. I have been coming to this place back in the early 80's. I will continue to come back. Remember mile marker 33 on the hiway.

My family tent camped there for four nights. We were in a great spot right on the water with an incredible view. The staff was friendly and fantastic. The bathrooms and showers were clean and the water got nice and hot. This was the first time we stayed there and it definitely won't be the last. The place is GREAT! And the best part of all it were the frequent visits by the natives to our site...the Key Deer.

I came here in college and still coming to fishing lodge and my kids are in college now. Spent some of the best times of my life there. Love the relaxed atmosphere, the sparkling clean bathrooms with endless hot water, the surrounding waters are amazing, the shop has everything, the full time campers are charming and quirky and welcoming, the boat dockage is fine and you are in great waters in 2 minutes, nature trail is great, Easter is great for the sunrise service and Christmas dinner is special.....love it and miss it

We love this place. We camped here last year while my wife was pregnant, and came back 18 months later and brought our son with us. This time we stayed in the efficiency room which was perfect for what you need in the keys. It was very clean, and the staff could not be more helpful or accommodating. The nature walks on site are fun, and seeing the Key Deer stop by throughout the day is always fun, especially for little ones. They also have fun events which are great for the family. And the pool is amazing!! Beautiful, clean, and perfect temperature always! For the price and location (15 minutes from Marathon and 45 from Key West) you really can't beat it. We will be coming back here year after year.

Room Tip: Book early, especially during the summer months

We stayed here for three days in one of their efficiencies. The room was clean, air conditioner worked great, and the kitchen had a tv, a full sized refrigerator and stove, complete with pots and pans and dishes and utensils.
The staff was very friendly, as were our fellow neighbors. The store had pretty much everything you might need and was reasonably priced.
We had friends who were staying in a camper and had a boat, so we went diving for lobster every day we were there. We limited out each time! Our grand total was 37 lobsters!
The key deer came by each night to say "hello" and it was lovely strolling through the campground. There is also a playground for the little ones.
The pool was clean and the area was large. We did partake in some family activities, which were fun.
The entire campground was clean, safe and large. It is perfectly set up for families.
Just down the road is a Winn Dixie and other shops, and some really good places to eat. I recommend Big Pine Key Restaurant.
You can make a day trip to Key West which is just 25 miles away.
We will definitely come back here with more family.
