The location of this park was great, layout was very good and the ability to get mail was wonderful. Big Laundry room operated on a card you buy from a machine, 5.00 deposit and accoutrements of 5 was added to the card. Deposit of 5.00 and it was returned to you. Lots to do at the park but we used it as a home base to explore Miami and did not use the pool, mini golf or assorted courts. Now on to the reason I gave it poor ratings, large dogs running freely, and the showers would back up on you over your ankles when showering. Toilets were a mess and one was always full. A trailer had extra showers and toilets besides the main shower house but very seldom was the doors unlocked. One had a toilet seat you had to hold in place when using, not connected any where. Reported the dogs and bathhouses but nothing changed. I would not stay again. - ledean paden

This is a very nice RV resort - everything about it exceeded our expectations. I read previous reviews and in site 240 (and walking around the park and the treatment area) and there are no smells. Sites are spacious and the amenities are excellent. Sites are on grassy areas, so you need to work a bit to level the unit. There was a huge brown spot of dead grass (just outside the door by patio) where somebody had a 10x10 mat out for an extended period, so we simply covered it with our own mat - of course, green grass would have been nicer, but the rest of the site has beautiful, lush green grass. Most of the roadways are paved, with a few that are gravel. Lovely mile long paved bike/walking path surrounds the park. The park is in a suburban/rural area surrounded by nurseries. - Deb and Chris

This is another Thousand Trails/Encore park that seeks to pack as many as possible into their "resort" experience. It was better maintained, and easier to navigate with its angled parking, than the Winter Quarters Pasco Resort that I reviewed earlier. It too catered to monthly and seasonal residents, and sought to provide a warm winter community. For me its primary charm was that it provided ready access to the Everglades. But I won't come back! What makes this campground, and all Thousand Trails/Encore parks, unacceptable to me from now on, is the failure of their reservation policy. TT promises to provide hundreds of parks, wherever you want, either free or heavily discounted with your Zone Pass. I purchased said pass and used it to pay for my stay at LaConner RV Park, and I intended to use it again in Florida, both in Miama and in the Keys. However, they don't let you make reservations in their parks before sixty days in advance. What they don't tell you is that the parks are making reservations outside the system much earlier than that, and that in high demand places like Florida in the winter, there will be no discounted sites left when their window opens. I was able to get into Miami Everglades only by paying the high, non-discounted price. I find this truly Trumpian practice appalling, and never will I fall for it again. - Jim Fulton

This is a great location for its access to the keys, the everglades, various state parks and other Florida attractions. Many of the sites are quite spacious but there are some that are quite short and a few that are narrow so be sure to check out the sites first if you can. We stayed for a month and learned that there is a recurring theft problem in the park. We did have some stuff stolen. The gate has apparently been on the list to repair since the fall... still not fixed and they need to address the security. There are a lot of feral cats which we found charming but hopefully the SPCA does regular health checks as some looked to be diseased or carrying some kind of parasite like fleas or mange. We felt it was a clean park with regular maintenance except their picnic tables. Some are in real disrepair and not safe. We really enjoyed the casual vibe in the park and some of the mature trees & shrubs. The pool is small but adequate and kept at a nice warm temperature. It could be a really fun park if they made some minor changes.The biggest problem (besides the gate/security) they need to address is creating ENGLISH postings, calendars, notices, events. Heck, even just an overal English speaking culture. It is very strange to be in the USA and have notices in FRENCH only... not even in Spanish which there is also a large representation in the permanent resident section. It also created a clicky French segregation in the park where you felt like an outsider. We will not be back and met others in the park that felt the same. Wanted to talk to management but felt like they know the problems already. They have some French 'volunteers'. Just hold some English/Spanish classes... or use google translate when you post a notice...lol. Include the whole park, not just the French population. Check out the sites if you can. Many are really spacious and beautiful and a few are just terrible. If you don't speak French ask to be in a section where there are more Americans and English speaking Canadians. Its lonely in the 'French Quarter' if you aren't a quebecquois - ptrv2018

"Resort" is a stretch for this Campground. It is a mixed use park, with many seasonal residents, many mobile homes and park models. Some in serious disrepair. Could be from Irma, or possibly Andrew. Old park that needs some TLC. Bath house was usable, but not clean at 6:am today. Two showers. Toilets were dirty. They have a small pool that is heated. Our space (3) was very tight, with a palm tree on one side of the drive and a light pole on the other. On the positive side, there is a cement pad next to the drive with a small picnic table. Okay for our short stay of three nights, but I wouldn't want to stay here any longer than that. - Alan F

The staff was very friendly. The park itself is not a resort but a mix of full time locals and winter visitors. Unfortunately for us our site backed up on a road with traffic. If you need a place for a night or two and don't have too large a rig it will suffice but this is not a destination for camping. The sites are small. They do have concrete patios. The front part of the park seemed to be travelers or snow birds. The farther back in the park it is definitely full time locals. Again, the staff was wonderful. - JBE2016

Our cat was bitten by a pygmy rattlesnake in T loop camp ground. He was walking on a leash near a tree. The camp site was in the middle of a campground area. Luckily he was not injected with venom. Ended up at Miami Vet specialists in Miami for treatment. Watch your dogs! I heard twp dogs were bitten in the past by the same snake species. Bring your weed whackers and ant killer! Dump station and water fill adjacent to bathhouse. Choose your site carefully as you don’t want to be next to that. Nice new power posts. - Blowfishqueen

Campground host was very nasty. Bad attitude towards campers and thought him and our neighbor man were going to get into a physical altercation. The problem is there is never anyone at the gatehouse. If you don't go to the campground host site, then there is no way to know what site you're in. When you go to the host site, there is no one there either. So we continued to drive circles around the park and then finally pulled into a empty site. An hour later he is pounding our door down telling us to move and move now. Said we weren't on the list. Come to find out, the list is two days behind due to previous hurricane Irma issues. So we moved to overflow and ran off the generator. Meanwhile the electric sites sat empty. He patrols like he's a control freak and needs to be doing his job welcoming campers instead of grouching. Other than the nasty host though, this place is an incredible experience and beautiful to see and explore. We loved it there. Spaces are huge and plenty of room and many have shade. Beach is a nice place to play and photo opportunities are plentiful. Wildlife is amazing. Take plenty of mosquito spray, water and fuel and expect no cell coverage out there. Progress is being made on cleaning up the other 2 campgrounds there. We seen bulldozers and trucks and men working everyday we were there. It's coming along great. Plenty of trails to walk and explore and the Visitor center has rangers that are nice and will answer all your questions etc. They have a nice display center about the park and park maps available also. Love the Everglades. Would go back to Flamingo Campground. - Scenic

This CG is about 50 miles from the closest resupply so come in with all your supplies, empty waste tanks and full fresh water. Dump station and fresh water is available however when we were there they were having a lot of problems with their water system and you had to boil your consumable water. I suspect that this is going to be a continuing issue due to the lack of funding the National Park Service receives. Sites are all pull through paved with picnic table and fire ring. The reservable sites (41) are all power with 20/30/50 amp. The park was still cleaning up after Irma and has taken a beating over the years from a number of hurricanes. The power sites were running a 10-15% vacancy every night and the host refused to let anyone use them unless they had a reservation. There is no wifi, no Verizon reception but I heard AT&T had a weak signal. You had to drive at least 11 miles to get phone and I had to drive out 20+ miles to get internet. The only services they have down there are canoe and kayak rentals and fuel for boats. We didn't have any problems with bugs but it was windy and coolish the whole time we were there. The "T" loop is the only one open right now and all the non electric sites are first come. We had to extend another day and had to move to one of these despite the fact that there were 6 open electrical sites. One should note that this concessionaire does not require that anybody stay in the sites if you have paid for the site and you can apparently just park you boat trailer in a site and leave it. This pretty much goes against every regulation I have seen in every Federal campground I've been to. The NP site still mentions a hotel and store but they were torn down due to hurricane damage. The one convenient store was closed due to flooding and showed no signs of being reopened. We'd stay here again if we wanted to visit the Everglades. - pumper9x9

We stayed 4 nights. Paid $75/night. Recommend un-hooking tow car in front of office. Recommend sites that are 3-5 sites away from trash/maintenance area (such as 113-115, 118-120, 355-357, 544-547 ... although a couple of those might be particularly attractive if you are towing a trailer because they're big corner lots providing good maneuverability and space). Our site was a back-in super large grassy area - no concrete patio, no picnic table and no fire pit. The parking space for our tow vehicle was asphalt. Amazingly no bug or mosquito issues. Telephone reservation process and check-in were easy and efficient (although I wish Sun would allow online reservations). Staff was friendly. We received an info packet at check-in including a map and calendar of activities. We were given green rubber wristbands to wear when using the pool or spa. All hook-ups worked perfectly. We had open sky with excellent DirecTV, Verizon cell and Sprint Wifi signals. We could not obtain park wifi at our site. The office said you can only get their wifi at the clubhouse. Neighbors were pleasant but kept to themselves. The park was clean and well-landscaped. The trash receptacle for RVer's is in the back of the park meaning you have to drive your trash to the trash area. There are a few "junky" mobile homes but most appeared to be neat and well-maintained. Some post-Irma repairs are still underway. The area outside of the park is dicey so we were glad they had a staffed guard gate. Inside the park we felt fairly safe although we were warned of petty theft (i.e. bicycles being stolen). No doubt the fencing around the CG could be easily jumped. We did not have any problems but it did make us uneasy. I definitely wouldn't suggest a single female go walking outside alone day or night. We'd stay here again if necessary but it wouldn't be our first choice. It's hard to find availability in the Miami area this time of year. - GottaGoNow

Manager extremely rude. Campsites awful. Service terrible. Wouldn't stay again for free. Pool unusable. No paper or soap in restrooms. 95% trailer park. Staff doesn't care about transient campers - Geno1986

The staff were really helpful and friendly. I stayed for a week on the Passport America rate so the price was great, too. The environment was comfortable and safe, as it's in a gated area with a guard shack. This has been converted into mostly permanent residents with some nomad spots, but unlike similar campgrounds this is a more upscale area. I only met a couple of residents (was mostly off-site) but they were friendly and sociable. I definitely recommend this campground. - Hal James

We actually enjoyed this park; however, the owner is protective of his property. There are less then forty spaces in this tight urban park, and he does keep an eye on everyone and everything that goes on. Although he has a limitation on dog size, he did allow our border collie to stay. I'm glad she is well trained and was able to wait until we were outside the park as we were told to make sure of when she "did her thing." It was this monitoring that made it uncomfortable. My wife told me he must have passed by the laundromat three different times while our clothes went through the washers. I took over for the drying and didn't see him at all. All this being said the park is in great condition and looks classic Florida with the white wrought iron fence surrounding it. It is relatively near the police and fire departments so there is the sirens that you occasionally hear; however, I wouldn't say it's a lot more then most other urban parks. The area surrounding it, while urban, is well kept, and I never felt afraid while here. A well kept magnet school for the public school system is next door; however, other than recess I didn't hear the kids nor did I see them at all. This is strictly an older adult park. For us it was a good value that permitted us to explore the Keys and watch the annual Rodeo that is held next to the YMCA. - bandirector

We stayed for an incredible price, $30 nightly. Assistant manager was very helpful and friendly. Gave us all kinds of directions to the keys and everglades. He even helped me with my computer, go figure. Bathrooms were newly tiled, even though we barely used them. - captain spoke

Campground is mostly full of permanent residents in camping units of various states of disrepair. Roads are fine. Transient area is a grassy field which is kept mowed . Utilities there are only 30 amp. Restrooms were marginally clean. Washer dryer worked well. Lots of aggressive barking dogs and feral cats. We will not stay here again. There is no nighttime security, gates are wide open, and we learned later that the park is near a very bad neighborhood. Our bikes were locked to our RV and during the night thieves cut through the bike cable locks and stole our two bikes. They also stole our neighbors bike. Park management did not warn us of this potential problem and when we reported the theft they stated that it was unusual to have 3 stolen at once. They were not surprised of the theft. - KathyAndJimB

Most horrible dirty park we were ever in. Grass was so high we could not even find the hookups. We should have left but had driven a long day and needed to get to the Keys, so we just dry camped and left early the next day. - coloradogirl42

WiFi is HORRIBLE. We have been here 5 months and the owner claims we are the only ones to complain. The regular snowbirds say they gave up years ago and have their own data packages. There are supposed to be routers sprinkled through out the park. Even standing under them, the signal drops out after a minute or two.
The pool is warm and only busy the months of January and February. Lots of activities (in Dec- Feb.) if you are a joiner.
Karaoke every Friday night, if you wish. Propane and rig washing are also available. - Theresavs

When we checked in they gave us a site but it had a truck parked on it,, called the office they said to just pick one nearby. Good location & close the Keys, Park is not that quiet with bikes going in & out, Tiki bar on site has loud music on weekends till midnight doing karoke. Old laundry room, sites are tight & hard to get in to other vehicles in the way. Lots of snowbirds. Probably won't be back. - 1972 camaro

A surprising park south of Miami in the Homestead area. The park is very convenient off the turnpike and offers easy access to the national parks as well as the top areas in Miami. The sites are organized in a circular pod configuration where there are 10 sites on the outside edge and 5 on the inside. The sites are asphalt with grass and large trees surrounding the sites and in between them. The park has reasonable bathrooms, showers and laundry rooms in several locations of the park, a great pool that is open for the weekends and summer months and wifi that works OK. With the low nightly price, great weekly and monthly rates, convenient location and decent amenities, this a great value park and highly recommended.

We stayed at Larry & Penny Thompson campground for a week as we visited the Biscayne and Everglades National Parks. This was a good location since the parks are equal distance from Larry and Penny's. As others have said, it is a unique set up at this park with the pods. We enjoyed our stay here, and stayed one night again after we went on to Key West and back before making our way back home. We would stay here again if in the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. - kimandcindy

This is an urban park just south of Miami adjacent to the Miami zoo. It is well laid out with circular pods and spacious sites. There is quite a bit of shade which is especially nice in the summer. There are large grassy areas between the pods. There is a pool, but only open on weekends. The pads are asphalt and somewhat rough - they are narrow but adequate. It can be tight getting in and out of the pad due to the trees. Hookups are fine. Wifi is spotty. We camped in a 34' motorhome. - Donauw

We stayed here during the first few days of off-season, which runs from April 15 until November 20. During this time, the site check in is self service - the station at the front of the campground is not manned. Note that the visitor's center closes at 5pm during off-season, so get here earlier if you have any questions.
So here is a breakdown of the off season process (since I couldn't find much information myself):
- When you drive in, there is a brown box on the station with a lid attached to it that is full of registration form/pay envelopes. Grab a few if you're not sure how long you'll be staying. The station is swarming with what appears to be bees, but don't worry, they're just giant horseflies (just slightly less terrifying).
- Drive around until you find a site you like - the majority will be open. They look small, but will fit a standard sized RV or trailer. There's a map on the side of the station that shows the sites & has them color-coded by length (we saw later that the "tiny" site we pulled into with our 30ft RV was, in fact, color coded for 31-38ft). Based on the map, sites seem to be able to handle 15ft to 45ft vehicles.
-Once you pick a site, fill out the envelope you got earlier, fill with cash (exact change only), tear off the top "receipt" to put in the vehicle window, seal the envelope, and stuff it in the slot labeled "pipe safe" next to the station. The people that work for the park call this the "iron ranger", the sign at the station calls it a "deposit box", the actual location says "pipe safe" - they're all the same thing.
-If you have a tow vehicle, you are allowed to park it on the grassy part of your site
The camp has 108 sites total, but only the first 15 are open during off season. Sites are very clean, with no hookups - just a fire pit and picnic table. LPK is close to all the good trails, and is better than Flamingo in my opinion. Note that there are no showers, only toilets, so tent camping might be more difficult. - LanderWust

A basic but beautiful park with spacious sites. Park is in a forest. Abundance of birds provides a nice background sound. Would give 10 points if it had showers. - Chbronson
