We don't camp very often at KOA campgrounds for good reason...it's not like real camping. And our one night stay here just reaffirmed that. We reserved a spot here just to have a place to sleep before catching the early ferry boat ride out to Dry Tortugas. We arrived late so they placed us in the "red tent" area. I guess that means you just get a a spot on the grass big enough for your vehicle because that's what we were led to by a grouchy old guy in a golf cart. Of course, if I were surrounded by that many pissy campers all the time, I might be grouchy too. Good thing we had planned to sleep in the back of our Jeep because there wasn't even room to set up a tent.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Open all year. Set between the crystal clear Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, Sugarloaf Key/Key West KOA is a true beachfront resort. You'll find amenities and activities designed to please everyone in the family, local fishing and beachside fun at the campground's own water haven. Dine under swaying palm trees and sip frozen margaritas on the waterfront veranda of the campground's pub. Even your family pet will have fun at the pet playground specifically designed for them. Ever-appealing Key West lies just 14 miles south. Hop on the campground's shuttle to this funky and historic end of the road, dubbed "the Conch Republic." Walk the narrow streets showcasing Conch architecture-breezy wood houses with lush tropical gardens-once home to pirates, treasure hunters, sailors, novelists like Hemingway and songwriters like Buffett. End the day with a sunset at Mallory Pier. ... more less
