“Great RV camping next to Key West!”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

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!

We read a lot of negative reviews, don't believe them. If you want to enjoy the Key West experience, this campground is great. You are 1 mile from the circle, and 5 miles to Duval street. The facilities were very clean while we were there, the pool was great and the staff was very friendly and helpful, even Patti...haha..see Patti, I gave you a positive review.

For those that talk about a scetchy neighborhood, the confines of the campground are great and never had a worry. There are many trailer parks surrounding the campground as well as many marinas. It is the Keys and there are 24,000 people crammed in a 4 Mile by 4 mile stretch of land known as key west. Me and the wife rode our bikes to the Hogfish bar and grill at 9pm and to a local Marina another night. Never once did we feel unsafe...don't judge the locals unless you walk a day in their shoes. Everyone we met on our trip were very friendly and we will definitely be back.

I spent a week van camping in a tent site. I had a site at the end of the point and loved the sunrises.
I had a blast at the pool - a very social place and I found it very fun because I was traveling alone.
Movie night was a nice way to spend an evening.
I will definitely go back.

Four ladies wanted to do a Girl's weekend and one friend had a 36' Motor coach so we set out for a fun filled weekend.

When we arrived on Friday mid-afternoon, there was a mix up on the reservations, however because of the dedication to service and accommodate their customers.

Danny personally met us and made the adjustment and we were able to have a wonderful experience and stay at Boyd's.

I go to Key West each November and visited the campgrounds before our trip in February and would say that we would visit again.

There was two (2) different shower areas and found everything acceptable.

Thanks to the support staff at the campgrounds for all of the help that they extended in accomodating us there.

If you simply must camp in Key West this is about your only option, but I wouldn't go back. The sites are packed in about as tight as possible with absolutely no room to spread out even a little bit. The surrounding neighborhood is sketchy, at best, and I would be afraid to bike or take the bus back into Key West - which means your always in the car to go there. Not at all convenient. The bathrooms are not terrible, but not all that clean either. Definitely bring flip flops to wear in the shower. The prices are high compared to other campgrounds in the keys, but I'm sure that's because of the proximity to KW and a simple supply/demand price point. We won't be returning here. It's simply not worth it.
