I traveled to Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge as a graduate student with a group of 10 people. We spent a week in the keys camping over spring break. BPK Fishing Lodge was perfect for this type of trip. The staff was friendly and willing to answer any questions we had and point us in the right direction for activities we wanted to pursue. The Lodge is essentially a camp ground with RVs and tent spaces. The people seemed to all be regulars who drive down from the northern states during the winter months. It is generally an older crowd, but we didn't mind. The shower facilities were fine and the fishing was really good. There is a general store on the property in case you need supplies or food.There was a nice swimming pool and shuffle board area. The bugs can be a little annoying and we had quite a few bug bites but it is hard to get mad when you are in the keys. Overall, if you love the outdoors and want to camp in a beautiful part of the country I would recommend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge (BPKFL) occupies ten pristine acres between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Perfectly positioned in the Middle Keys at MM33, the BPKFL offers a friendly home-base from which to enjoy all the Florida Keys has to offer. The BPKFL has several lodging options to choose from including rustic campsites, electric/water RV campsites, water-front campsites, plus efficiencies and motel rooms. With a boat ramp and canals, you can put your boat in the water (and leave it in the water) during your stay. This idea of "boat-side" camping gives you the freedom to jump in your boat and go whenever the mood strikes. Our camp store is stocked with everything you need to be comfortable at camp and out on the water. This includes food, beverages, and snacks, plus fishing/marine supplies like marine gas, bait and basic water sports equipment. Whether this is your first visit to BPKFL or your fiftieth, we look forward to sharing our little slice of paradise with you. ... more less
