“Amazing Location and View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

We had an oceanfront site and it was amazing. We have a small trailer and so were given one of the smaller sites (makes sense). We found the site plenty big enough and even turned our camper sideways. Waking up and stepping out to the ocean was magical. Staff was great! There were plenty of people working at all times and regular patrols and friendly waves. Facilities were clean. Private showers and changing rooms. To those complaining about price or site size, IT IS KEY WEST! If you were to buy a small lot with a shack will cost you a half million dollars minimum. Property taxes are through the roof as well. Don't try to compare the value of renting a site on this prime oceanfront real estate next to Key West to a site in the middle of the woods somewhere. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and can't wait to go back.

We're thrilled that you enjoyed such a great stay at our campground! There's nothing quite like waking up to a beautiful sunrise right outside your camp site. We're pleased
that you enjoyed our facilities and our wonderful staff. It's wonderful to know that you appreciate the little slice of Paradise we have here at Boyd's. Hurry back!

We have been to key west several times over the past 15 years. We stayed at only one other campgrounds during that time and when we found Boyd's Key West we found our campground. The facilities and the staff are all first rate. When you wake in in morning to the sunrise out your camper window you will always remember one of the best views of a lifetime. There is no rush to do anything in Key West, you make your own time schedule to enjoy the island and peoples. The only time schedule that is important on Key West is the Sun Set on Mallory Pier each night. If you are a camper you must try Boyd's Key West. You will want to return over and over again.

Room Tip: try to get a site on the point or any other water site. great views from all.

We booked and paid for our reservations at Boyd's at least 6 months prior to arrival on January 1, 2014. When making reservations, I specified a minimum 25 feet length and 10 1/2 feet tall space required for our slide-in truck camper. Upon arrival, we were assigned a space that was at least 6 feet too short, meaning 6 feet of our truck stuck out into the road. Also, the space was at least 3 feet too short, with a stout limb that would have entered the front of the camper at about bed level (over the cab). When I went to the desk with this info, they said, "If your rig does not fit the site, too bad." They then 'graciously' allowed us to pay $130 a night in a 'big rig' site. It felt like a "bait 'n switch" to us. Because of other reservations, we were stuck accepting their deal.

If you choose Boyd's, expect a bait and switch.

This RV park is on Stock Island which is not far from Key West....It has just about any convenience that you can mention including a heated pool! There are tie-ups for boats etc. We found out about the local bus service which has a bus stop almost directly in front of the campground...How Convenient? It about a 35 minute ride into old Key West but very relaxing and there are some nice views enroute! Fare is only $2 for adults...and if you are 60 yrs old or older : 50 cents is the fare!!! The park has a small shop for minor foodstuffs plus a very nice gift shop too!

Room Tip: Book in advance for your desired RV location!

We stayed here for 7 days and couldn't have been happier! Great location, very clean, and the operators were friendly and helpful. The tiki pool area was a great way to unwind from the madness of Duval Street and Mallory Square. If you book a waterfront site, be prepared to have issues with the WIFI, but that was our only complaint. Very nice place to unwind while visiting the Keys!

I was initially hesitant to camp here at the price. I wanted a campsite by the water, but yikes - pricey! But, I figured
it was still cheaper than staying in a hotel in Key West. You are really close to Key West.

The campground was not as private as staying in a state or national park campground, but not nearly as crowded as most of the campgrounds we passed driving down the Keys. It was quiet at night.

I was initially a little concerned about the neighborhood around the campground, but I did not think about it at all once we got there. They had security which stops every car at night and drives around the campground all night.

There is a great pool with a huge covered area if the Florida sun starts getting too hot for you (and even cable tv outside at the pool - under the covered area).

The bathrooms were mostly clean, though not immaculate. I was fine with shower shoes and the bathrooms were cleanest late at night and early in the morning. Early evening was not as great though, mostly just due to the number of people and by late morning, it had seen a lot of use. I've seen much worse at a campground though, it was not icky or anything.

Weirdest thing was that I didn't see a single bug during our stay. I think they just keep it really clean - constantly taking out the trash, picking up anything on the ground, raking over campsites as soon as someone leaves, etc.

Overall, really nice - the views were amazing! I already miss sleeping under three of my very own palm trees! I would definitely camp here again!

Room Tip: Get a tent site on the water, but ask for something in the mid 20's, that the sweetest view!

For camping in Key West, this is the best you can get. Come ready to relax, fish, and party. Leave your computer home - internet connection is slow and unreliable. Use the pool - and make sure to check out the hidden tiki cove! Host campers are friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!
