Second time bringing our LECC Summer Camp to Key Lime....what a great place. Elizabeth Porter is so nice to work with and the entire experience once again the highlight of our camp calendar. Everyone is accommodating, friendly and professional. Our children -All 100 of them- are still talking about the trip...2 days later.

If you are going for the water park I would say go to another water park. The room was the better than the small water park. It's only one small area. I've been to numerous water parks and this has to be the smallest one ever. I must say I loved the hotel room it was clean and beautiful. We...

This can be kind of expensive but the kids love it. The last time we stayed in a suite when there was a really good special and it was really nice. The Grandkids really love coming here when we visit family in the Chicago area.
