We had a beachfront premium site. FL charges a lot in taxes, and the nightly rate includes those for a realistic rate. We had a great time at Sunshine Key RV Resort. We checked in on a Monday and left Saturday morning. During the week, the resort was great! As soon as Friday came, weekenders started showing up. They were loud, rude, and didn't obey a lot of rules (which we were informed were "strictly enforced" when we checked in). We had people walking through our campsite to get to the beach. Someone bounced a football off of our RV. Someone else tripped over our sewer hose. It's a great park during the week, but downgrades significantly on the weekend. We won't be back. - ChappyCampers

Second row back, have a limited water view. Site is small. The showers are also small, no bench, no shelf to put soap and shampoo on. Does not include internet, that is $6.00 a day extra. Nothing special here, narrow roads, had to move our car twice as someone on the next row could not turn out as the road is too narrow. The location is not for us, aside from doing something in the park, there is nothing around. - RVDolly

If you like Encore Resorts then you will like this campground. However, for us, there were some definite drawbacks. For the price we paid, $95 during the week, $114 for the weekend, we think they could have spend a bit more time on picking up some of the litter lying all over the camp. Wherever we walked, there was at least a few pieces of trash, and even more down at the "beach" and the marina. I found that disgusting. The beach has nice lounge chairs but they never raked the seaweed which was inches thick on the shore line. Also, this campground is located right next to the Overseas Highway (route 1) through the keys and there is constant traffic noise, even through the night. Although quiet hour starts at 10 PM, on Friday night, there were people partying and talking loudly right outside our unit until well past midnight. On the upside: Most sites are pull throughs and are wide enough for a large unit, at least one vehicle. Many people had golf carts and canopies on their sites with room to spare for sitting. There was one tree between most sites, however, there was no grass, just stones. The bathrooms were new and clean. The office staff was very nice and helpful. Our main complaint was the garbage and the high price. If we come to the Keys again, I would make my reservations earlier and stay at one of the State Parks. - Madd Dogg

We tried for two years to get a reservation at this very popular park before we got lucky. We were not impressed. While the views are spectacular and the kayaking good (depending on the weather) the constant road noise from the nearby highway ruined it for us. Sites are a real mix. Some large, beautiful water front sites to small, short, narrow sites. The showers are in a trailer, and they stunk. Literally. Nice beaches and convenient to Key West. We won't rule out staying here again, but if we can't get reservations, we won't be disappointed. - Jerry and Betsy

One year after Hurricane Irma, Bahia Honda still isn't quite 100% back on its feet, but what's there still made for a wonderful trip. The Sandspur loop & beach -- i.e., half the park -- are still closed. The bathrooms & showers are in portable trailers. Most importantly, the Atlantic-side beach is pretty short on sand. Oh, and also, the noseeums were pretty bad some nights. So why a 9? Well, there aren't too many parks where you can walk from your campsite to snorkel expansive sea grass beds; to kayak on the ocean and Gulf; to drive to Key West in under an hour; to enjoy beautiful weather with 82-degree ocean temps in late November. Or fish, or take a boat tour, or or or -- plenty to do here, all on "island time". Even at 50%, this is a gem, and it sets a pretty high standard for Keys camping. - Spiffe

Our site # 18, gravel, backed up to the water. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Private sites with foliage between the sites. Spent two glorious weeks there. Will go back if we can get in. - Field Trip

Very nice facilities. One thing we look for are friendly faces and management. And this place certainly had some great people!!! Highly recommended!!! - JuanCarlos

We stayed here the entire month of January. People are very friendly and helpful. It's convenient to the Winn-Dixie and 2 drug stores. Key West is only 25 miles away. There are so many Key deer around, they are almost a nuisance. We enjoyed petting and feeding them. We had no problem parking our 40' rig on B-6. They have cable and Wi-Fi, and they both work great. The electric and cable is included in the price. We would stay here again. - Dennis Reid

We weren't sure about this park when we arrived. We ended up in the back which is tight navigation. But once we got set up, we were happy. The pool is small and needs chairs but is clean and refreshing. The Key Deer come around every morning and evening and just hang out. The bus stop to Key West is just 1/2 block away. For the Keys, this is a reasonably priced campground. Sites are small but that's most sites in the Keys. The cable and Wi-Fi worked fine and the people are nice. We would camp here again. - RV Gypsy

We enjoyed this lovely park a great deal, and felt fortunate to find a campsite here. The Secret is to wait until April as many of the Snowbirds are already on their way home. We had a great campsite, that was pretty easy to back into as compared with some. It's a great place for boaters as there is a launch and dockage available. I also noticed fishing charters departing so imagine the office can help with that. We took kayaks, and had some great fishing out near the bridge. There are excellent fish cleaning facilities, and the store is extremely well-stocked. We did make a trip in to Big Pine Key's main area to the Winn Dixie on day while there. We enjoyed the lovely pool area, which even opens up a small bar for happy hour. There is also water aerobics in the pool every morning, as well as a variety of other activities and special events at the rec room. And each night, a double feature movie is broadcast on a close circuit TV channel to each campsite. The cable TV was very good, and the wifi ok except for having to re-log in every 30 minutes. Guess that keeps campers from hogging the signal! We also enjoyed the lovely nature trail which connects up with the National Wildlife Reserve. Great location - not far from Key West and the wonderful Bahia Honda State Park. We plan to go back next year to this very friendly and well-managed park! - Bernalillo_Girl

Nice campground about 20 miles from Key West. Very narrow access roads with some trees on the edge and vehicles parked so it is difficult to turn corners and back in. We have a 32' 5th wheel. They will park it for you for a fee. They have a nice pool and laundry, cable works good, Wi-Fi is okay. Showers and restrooms cleaned daily. Key deer visit the camp sites daily. - Charlie M.

BPKFL is unlike any other campground we have ever stayed. Many of the campers have been coming for 20 years or more and some are second generation campers. Many of the campers are snowbirds who camp for months. I'm normally bothered by this because the sites tend to get junky looking. That isn't the case here. People have their decorations, but they are done in either a tasteful or silly way, so they actually add to the community feel. Although there are many snowbirds there are also children and young folks. Sites are very tight, and many rigs require tractor help to get situated. The sites are somewhat larger in rustic. Generators are not allowed so most campers in rustic use solar panels. Solar panels are adequate for most purposes, but cannot support air conditioning, so it can get pretty hot and muggy even in Feb.
We stay in rustic. In rustic there is a wonderful, welcoming sense of community. Many folks are there to fish. We don't but our neighbors kept us supplied from their daily catch. The activities are wonderful and frequent and just about everyone participates. Pie night is not to be missed-a dollar for real homemade pie and ice cream!
The bathrooms are immaculate. The staff is constantly cleaning. The pool is beautiful. There is a small beach for sunning and relaxing, but it is not really a swimming beach. There is also an observation deck overlooking a national wildlife refuge, often full of birds.
For any sort of extended stay you need to book a year in advance. Campers on site are given the option of renewing for the following year, so people trying to make long term reservations will generally have to go on a wait list until things sort out.
No dogs are allowed because the endangered Key deer wander around the campground.
We have booked 5 weeks for next year. - Carol49

Booked a month on an RV site, backed our 5th wheel up to 9' away from the seawall. Lovely, it was everything we anticipated and more. Trying to make arrangements to return. There are rules that you are expected to follow, but if you don't misbehave then no problems. Wide mix of eclectic older units, campers, truck campers, 5th wheels, newly built stilt houses and million dollar motor coaches. Great pool along the oceanside. It is a gated park with 24/7 security. Caught fish, sharks and rays right from our seawall. Fish, visit Key West - Retired Lt

Nice spot with plenty of security. Big heated pool, kiddie pool, and hot tub, but looked a little dated. Just way too many rules here! - Teri44

Beware you are renting from a snobby ungrateful real estate agent water front keys reality They booked us for a day earlier than our expected arrival and on top of that we had tire trouble on the way there and were a day late getting there. They wouldn't refund any money even though it was partly their fault. This park is not pet friendly at all. You must go out of the park to walk your dog. The spaces are extremely tight and crowded with trees. I had a conversation with someone from the real estate agency to explain our situation to which she replied there are no refunds of any kind and when I mentioned that I may not stay there again she promptly said "well have a safe trip home" and hung up . These people are extremely rude. - Clint Scott

I hiked from Key Largo to Key West. I arrived just at dark. I entered the park by walking under the nearby highway bridge. The park looks like a big construction zone. They have repaired all the hurricane damage and are working on greatly expanding the facility. I attempted to call the KOA but got no answer. I set up my tent in the freshly mowed grass near the edge of the park. Little Key deer came out and grazed after dark. Very quiet except the noise from the highway. - mouldsfn

You would have to see it to believe it, the sites were so close that we could not even put our awning out, the people on one side let theirs out and hit the side of our coach and had to retract it some, on the other side we could not let ours out. The people on the drivers side of our coach had a tv outside and had it blasting as loud as it would go day and night, Office was closed at night so we could not get anything done about the noise, we cancelled our stay after calling another park on Key West and it was 1/3 the price of this one and 100 times better, nicer, roomer and I will never again go to this KOA! - GA-RVers

The office building is under construction, so the sign at the entrance needs to be temporarily corrected. The "blue awning" is not currently the mark of the office. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The RV sites are completely unshaded, which is a drawback. The pool, pool area and pool bar are quite attractive and open generous hours, although during the day the pool is, naturally, dominated by loud children. The beach areas are minimal and not very attractive. The "restaurant" is a counter with a few snacks that aren't very good. The grounds are quite large with the resulting disadvantage that both the bathhouse and the dog park are quite far from the RV site area. A great plus for us is that we had our car in tow, and Key West was only a half hour away. - Samuel J

This could be a beautiful spot on a lake, but the park doesn't keep it that way even allowing for some remaining hurricane debris. Our next door neighbor has an overturned metal boat, a large generator, and other assorted junk that has spilled over into our space for which we paid a premium price. The space itself is too small for our unit and the roads too narrow for normal maneuvering. If you looked out our rear windows onto the lake you'd be impressed, but the nicer side of the park is apparently for full time residents with large motorhomes. Our side is an absolute dump with some permanent residents (with old trailers and trashy sites) and others with nice RVs/trailers (like us) who will only stay a couple of days/weeks. Think trashy trailer park and you won't be far wrong. It does have a beautiful pool and the office people seem quite helpful and very nice, but it's really a shame that what could be a pretty nice place to stay doesn't even rate one star. - Roloir

Lazy Lakes RV Park is much smaller than the one I stayed in in Miami. Unlike that manicured resort, Lazy Lakes has the feel of a rough-and-tumble tropical island. The sites are wider, and I was able to back into mine ALL BY MYSELF, with only a little bit of wiggling. I'm learning! It helped that the site across the lane was empty, giving me place to get a better angle on my own. It was not my first choice, but Thousand Trails prevented my going to their park, and Hurricane Irma utterly destroyed the KOA. Indeed, the damage and debris and flotsam from that storm is everywhere, including some devastated travel trailers parked by the side of the road. The campground was hit hard by Irma, and they're still finishing up their repairs there. (Didn't really need that final 'there' but it let us use all of its homophones - correctly - in the same clause.) Clean up will take another year, at least. Lazy Lakes was satisfactory as a base from which to visit the keys, but as a resort it was way too much money for way too little. Their website suggests a beachfront, which actually belongs to Key West several miles away. The area immediately surrounding the park is actually rather ugly. - Jim Fulton

We stayed in July of 2017. We loved it. The pool & bathrooms were clean and there was a caretaker trimming some bushes when we were here. My kids enjoyed watching the wildlife in the area. If you have not visited the Key Deer, it's a fabulous experience. We truly enjoyed our stay. - Malibu1

Bluewater Key is the nicest resort you will find close to Key West. It is only about a 15 minute drive. It is a rather small resort and the lots are pretty tight but a lot of them have Tiki huts and outdoor kitchens - like ours did. They have a nice dock and the best thing is you can rent paddle boards and jet skis and they deliver them right to your lot. There are restaurants and stores within 15 minutes of the location. It is a beautiful place to watch the sun rise. Would prefer to stay here when the weather is a bit cooler but if I ever went back to the Keys this is where I would go! - Shwillia

This is a very high end RV Resort and the pricing shows it. The rate was actually $139/night but then our son came home from college and decided he wanted to come with us. They charge an additional $10/night for the additional adult plus there is a 12.5% tax on top of the above rates. We chose this campground because it is only 14 miles from Key West. ALL of the sites are privately owned and rented out when the owners are away. Our site (#21) had a palm tree preventing up from fully extending out patio awning but that was OK as it was too hot to sit outside anyway. TV in the Tiki appeared to be streaming programing because it was constantly freezing up but the cable worked fine in the coach. We camped in a 45' Class A. Staff was very helpful and helped us get situated and explained about using everything in the Tiki. - Merritt Island Mike

Great RV Resort, minus the staff! They are on a power trip! After our RV would not fit on the booked site, the manager wanted to cut down a large palm tree so my RV would fit on the lot. I said “thanks but no thanks. I don’t think the owner of the lot would appreciate that.” That statement turned the manager into a complete a**. I then went into a**hole mode and requested money back and advised I would go to another RV resort just down US 1. He then COMPLETELY changed his attitude and gave us a bay view lot vs the booked canal lot. P.S they nickel and dime you on fees. Fee to park a trailer, fee for extra water to wash your RV, fee for each additional guest. For a already expensive resort, these fees should be included in my opinion. Book via phone, not online. - Rogister

A real treasure in the Florida Keys, based on some of the other RV parks we saw between Key Largo and Key West. We lucked into a site for 3 nights during the winter season on short notice, which in this case was 3 months. Many people from up north enjoying extended stays down here. The facilities are somewhat old, but adequate. Many of the sites are on the tight side, but we got a fairly roomy shaded site. It was only 30 amp, but that was what was available. No sewer, but a "honey wagon" comes by and will dump for a small fee. Personnel were friendly. Rumor has it that the owner has sold the property and the park will close this spring. Too bad. This was quite a place in the Florida Keys. - one_strange_texan

The park was nice. We enjoyed our time here with our son. We had a site by the water and that was a treat at all times. We were able to walk into the water, although it was not sandy it was like clay. It was fun. There was a nice breeze. The men's restroom had a strong urine odor for the majority of the stay. And the toilet stalls were not big enough. My son was concerned of anyone walking in while he used it. This is when we asked that he not go there anymore unless there was an emergency. The showers were clean but the curtains were too narrow and there was no privacy to change in either restrooms (female or male). Another good point is that you can just bike or walk to the bridge and fish. My son enjoyed that a lot. There is a grill within walking distance. I did not go to it so have no recommendations on that. I guess that I would come back at some point. There is not much for kids to do here and there is no pool either. I did like that there is security at the entrance and the garbage gets picked up in the morning at your site if you do not want to go for a walk. The beach, well that was not very attractive, it was more like a jump into the ocean with no clarity as to what is underneath. Some people like that, I like to see what is there when I jump. Overall , it was nice. - AngelY

My comments are not up to date and guessing on the rate as we paid by the month. We have been coming to this place a lot since 2001 when we got our RV. We have stayed on the water and in the infield section. We last were there February 2014 and really like this place. Sadly, it has been sold and will be developed into a resort so the park will be gone. We have reserved a site this coming winter. Thank goodness. It is not a fancy rv park and not a resort type facility, but the staff is great, the campers are almost like family and I cannot wait to return. Thank goodness they come and pump you out or we'd have to leave in 4 days. - LindaVA1
