Stayed in the bay side campsites on the west side of the Key. The bay is quiet and there are just a few campsites there so it doesn't get crowded. Neighbors were really nice. There was no electricity at the time in those sites, maybe they have it now.
The sites have the standard picnic table and grill and are just across the street from the water although you cannot swim there. For swimming just go to the beach by the bridge for a super calm and relaxing time or go to the east side for the Oceanic beach. Both have clear blue water and white sands. The park has many facilities and amenities. The concession stand is well stocked with essentials and nicknacks. Plenty of ice available in bags, essential when camping in the summer.
Overall a great family trip and you can't beat the price to stay in the beautiful Florida state parks.
