The campground is not near very much so be sure you have supplies; there is a little camp store on site. It has been redone since Hurricane Irma and is clean with paved roads and coral rock sites. Easy access. Water surrounds the campground and there is a marina and restaurant. Whether you like this campground or not will largely depend on your site. Some are roomy and have water views. Others are very tight. We had a premier pull thru site, 333. Premier would not be the adjective we’d use. The sewer was on the driver’s side practically under the coach. The electric and water were on the other side so everything had to run under the coach. It worked okay but a strange setup. We did have plenty of room on our passenger side with a concrete pad and table. But on the other side, the people next to us were about a foot away. Then another small rig that we felt sure was going to hit our slide out was backed in behind our neighbor and close to us. We were all crammed together. Because we didn’t have a lot outside around the table, it became a walkthrough for other campers. The “beach” is sandy but not down to the water. There is a ladder to access the water from the beach for swimming and an elevated pool. There are a couple of wifi hotspots but wifi at your site will cost you. As are all of the campgrounds in the Keys for the winter, they were busy and filled almost to capacity even mid week. - Team Asphalt

Staff was so friendly; they pick up your trash at the curb. We didn’t do much in the park besides catch some small fish from the dock. - Derek Lidbom

We came down to the Florida Keys to enjoy 4 days during the Christmas holidays. And we didn't mind paying the $226.13 (site on the water with tax and resort fees included) per night because of the location. This site wasn't worth the price. Poor design to cram these units in here like this plus the roadways are in dire need of resurfacing. The entrance is beautifully landscaped as we drove in. The park's roadways in Shark's Circle are unkempt and ponding water is standing everywhere. The sites are too close. In fact my awning can't be fully deployed because it will hit my neighbor's bump-out. The power and fresh water connections are on the wrong side of each staggered site. The electric pedestal/water bib is on our concrete patio space. The overhead power poles are in the way of our parking our toad. We tried to book a site at a couple of other parks but they were full. Now we know why this park has vacancies. The saving grace is the nice tiki bar/restaurant on the water and good cell service so we could connect to our "Hot-spot." Their WiFi is not working here since Hurricane Irma hit last year. We have a small coach so we typically do not need help parking our rig. However, I watched for an hour some of the campground staff try to assist other campers decide how they should pull in or back in because of the electrical/water connections being on the wrong side of every staggered site. Electrical cables and water hoses were too short so campers (such as me) had to crawl under their vehicles to make connections on the wrong side of their site. - SteveDahl

If you are an Elk and enjoy the Gulf, be sure to try this lodge. They have about 12 spaces with 50 amp power and water, no sewer. You park within 100' of the bay. They have a fishing pier and private beach with crystal clear water. The lodge is inviting and has continuous events. The hosts, Patty and Tim are the best. Try it. - ranchoddellago

Open to Elk members only. Small campground in back of lodge on water - beautiful views, for sure. State there are 10 sites, but really only 8. Best place, price-wise, to stay if eligible. Would give a 10, however the hosts force us to lower the rating - they've been there too long - difficult to describe: nice enough people, but they keep photos & records of every visitor (a bit creepy), other examples not worth mentioning. Other guests great & friendly group. Good Verizon 4G coverage. We will stay here again if in the area. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

Tight, Tight, Tight. Pulled in the entrance when I arrived just to find out my campsite required us to come in the exit. Friendly people helped us get into a very tight campsite. Overall the park is very clean. The the main road was recently paved. Beware of the entrance it has concrete walls that have a 10 foot opening. - Rusty S

Stayed four nights near the water, gulf side. Small campground, great staff. Boat ramp, pier, large covered picnic/gazebo. Great spot for watching sunsets. Clean campground/beach. Saw a manatee and dolphins. Stayed in the A row between two permanent campers at the end. The one that was there woke us up at 2am banging on something with their friends, didn't leave until 3:30. Had to put the ac on to cover the noise. Several times during the day their music was so loud we had to move down to the gazebo to have a normal conversation. Should of moved after the first incident. Would go back if they weren't there, or maybe stay in the C row away from them. This could be a great place to chill. Met some really nice people there. Nice central location in Key Largo. - Kamper123

The park is very tight, which includes both the roads and the sites. The park is old and funky with a noticeable lack of street appeal. Once inside the wall, you see that there is regular maintenance going on and there is nothing to fear. The pavilion on the water is nice; as are the residents, many whom are snowbirds. Note, because the spaces are small, you are subjected to your neighbor's habits. We were sited next to chain smokers and couldn't ever open our windows on the left side. Park management is very nice and they do a great job getting you in and out of the tight park. The internet service is surprisingly fantastic! - Maxine and Cinder

Heads up, per their website, Long Key will be closing for a year starting the fall of 2017 for beach reclamation.
Wow - where else can you park right on the ocean? Clean. The scenery was awesome!! Shallow water with sea grass that washes up. There are jelly fish and man-of-wars, so be careful. The old bathrooms/showers were 'old' and in need of updating. Still clean though. The new bathrooms down the road were very nice.
Sites vary in size (length and width), so do your homework. Each is separated from the next sites by vegetation. Each site had water & electric, however, I noticed that each pair of sites shared a central utility location at the back of the site which means for the odd numbered sites, the hook-ups were to the right (looking from the road into the sites) and the even sites were to the left. I noticed this as many motor homes had to pull straight in for even sites (versus back in) so they could hook up (or had to use extension cords and hoses). In our TT, we can only back in and do not have extension hoses/cords, but fortunately had an odd site with the hook ups to the on the utility side of the camper.
Camping at Long Key is all about being 'on the ocean', and for that, Long Key is priceless! - brentp

We spent a wonderful two weeks in an oceanside site (all sites in this park are oceanside). Our site was rather narrow, and if we had slides we would not have had room to fully deploy our awning. Since we don't have slides, the only problem the site presented was a tight squeeze to back the rig in. Other sites seemed to be wider, so it will be luck of the draw for you, since reservations are so difficult to procure. Once in place, we had a great time. The ocean is shallow and calm in this area, but the beach is covered with seaweed, which the park demands remain in place to preserve the natural ecosystem. We still managed to have room for chairs even at high tide. One discouraging note was the presence of rats after dark. One night we were sitting next to the picnic table after eating dinner, and watched as a bold rat climbed onto the table only five feet from our chairs and checked out our empty dinner plates. Other nights, the rats were seen running along the fence rails and in the trees. This is the only reason the park didn't get five stars for cleanliness, since the bath houses and rest of the areas were impeccably clean. - HabaneroMike

This park is my least favorite state park in the Keys. The park manager needs some lessons in customer relations. The rangers here are the least helpful in all the parks we've stayed in. Most likely due to the poor management.
As far as the park goes there is not a lot to do here. The water level is so shallow you can walk out quite a ways and it doesn't get past your knees. Plus, although the bottom is sandy it is kind of mucky. If you where your flip flops in the water the mucky sand sucks them right off your feet. It feels like you're getting stuck. It is very weird being that everywhere else in the keys that we've been has a nice soft sandy bottom.
There is a lot of erosion going on so the availability of campsites that would fit our 30ft RV is becoming less every year. There are 60 sites in the campground. In the past there were at least 38 sites that would accommodate our RV. Now there are only 18.
The only reason I would camp here is because my husband likes to fish off the Long Key bridge. It is located only about a mile from the park. - misnowbird

Previous descriptions gravel and hedges. Beach is nice and an easy walk to watch sunsets. Pool clean and looked inviting. Utilities worked well. They have started installing the modular "houses" on the south side of the park. But said they were still taking reservations. - rmartin

This park is basically a gravel lot with many pull through sites, as well as some back ins on the edges. The reason this is worth mentioning is that the winds were almost 30 mph when we were here, but our back in site, #44, was very calm and well protected from the wind. There are hedges in between sites for privacy as well, but some people said they were buffeted by the high winds out by the waterfront. The beach was nothing to speak of, but was relatively clean and had a few docks to walk out on. Utilities worked fine but there was no trash pick up one day. When my trash was still there the next day, I just took it to the dumpster. Wifi didn't work at all. Showers were moderately clean but had some mold visible in places. Overall, okay if you need a place to stay, and easy to navigate with all the pull throughs, but too expensive for what you get. - Pinkflamingo71

Excellent amenities. Big sites. Right on water's edge, bay side. We staged from her to do Miami, the Everglades, Marathon and Key West. The caveat here is the park has been purchased to redevelop into individual Vacation Homes. Development did not go as originally planned so has reopened as RV campground. Supposedly this RV resort will only be open until May 1st. This was high season, so rates were highest we have ever paid. Was able to get reservations within a week of arrival. Only 1/3 full. - Mike from Bama

Like others before me, I'll tell you to ignore the poor reviews. This is not a typical campground, by any means. It is an older park that has mostly park models, some permanent travel trailers and fifth wheels in it, along with new (some being built as we are here) concrete stilt homes. By my nearest count there might be 30 to 40 'camping' spots in here. Some of the units are weekend getaways for folks in the Miami area, some are seasonal and yearly rentals, and yes, there are spots for travel trailers and fifth wheels. We live in Lee County FL, and this is our second time here in a month. There is a strong Hispanic ethnic here, and we enjoy conversing with them and enjoying the music they play in the evenings. As well, there are folks here from all over the US and Canada. We just love this place! We are in spot 230 again, and are very happy with this spot. We are set in between two stilt homes that have recently been built. Our space is as wide as three campers and then some, with a concrete pad. We are on the canal that leads out to Buttonwood Sound, and the view is terrific. People here are friendly, ALL of them. The staff, other campers, residents, and weekenders alike. There is a boat ramp and boat parking, a beautiful swimming pool with a large deck, tennis, and a play area for kids. There is new management here as of late, and a great deal of upgrades to amenities and landscaping have been done, even during the month we were not here. Security here is excellent, as no one gets in without a pass card or decal on their vehicle. If you don't mind a diverse campground like this, want to be on or near the water, then this is the place. We've already booked for a spot on Buttonwood Sound for this upcoming November and can't wait to be back! - Springerdad

Run don't walk. This is the worst RV park we've ever stayed in. First they lost our confirmed reservation. Second unless you have a 30 foot sewer hose you cannot connect. No cable TV even though they advertised it. Forth, AC trip.the breaker's that are worn out. - Johnbce

The other reviews are somewhat true, this is mainly a colony of permanently parked trailers, plus a few permanent two and three story vacation homes. There are very few open motorhome sites. We are full-time motorhome travelers (in our sixties) and lucked into a great spot, right near the pool and Marina for three weeks in February. We ignored the reviews and took our chances, and ended up loving Calusa. There is a large population of Spanish speaking, mainly Cuban-heritage folks that come here. But there is also a large group of snowbirds from the Midwest and New England. We made good friends with both groups. The park's Valentine party was really fun -- the DJ played 50s-60s oldies for the first hour, then Latin music later. The pool is beautiful--busy on weekends, quieter during the week. Beautiful sunset viewing, and great boat access if you have kayaks or a boat. The office is well organized, the staff friendly and polite, and security is vigilant. You use a card to get in and out. Publix and Kmart are right across the Overseas Highway. Maybe we were lucky to avoid noisy neighbors at our site. Then again, we also enjoyed being invited out to Cuban culture night on the last Friday of the month in Miami, and partying at home in the park one night with American/Cuban friends. Don't let the bad reviews sway you -- for us this was a gem -- but what site you get may make a huge difference. We had Site 68 -- wonderful for our likes. - Kmsmolen

If you have a dog or you happen to be a pet lover- Warning! I would stay clear from this RV Park! Key Largo Kampground & Marina is not a good place to go since they judge all older dogs to be biters! At least that is what the receptionist told me. It's not a dog friendly RV Park - they must hate old dogs to be so ignorant! When I called the reservationist asked me what type of dog I had and then I told her "Ginger" (my sweet rescue dog) is harmless. God love her she's a 20-year old dog (which is unheard for a dog her size 36 lbs. to live this long). She's never hurt a flea nor bit a single person in her life. We take good care of her and she's trying real hard to out live us! We realize Ginger's time is fleeting since her best friend and life long companion Charlie (another 20 year old dog) when on a well deserved vacation to "Doggie Heaven" 2 weeks ago. But this snooty woman said older dogs are more likely to bite since ... in her opinion "they are so old". Angered by her stupid comment I hung up and moved on to a less judgmental and ignorant opinion of "Man's Best Friend." I'm an expert on dogs. Just finished writing a book on the subject plus I started a non-kill animal shelter and ran it for 12 years. I won an Emmy for a TV show about animal rescue and hosted a dog behavior talk radio show. So if you ask my opinion don't go to Key Largo Kampground & Marina. They're not pet friendly in my opinion. Right away we found lots of other RV Parks that are less likely to piss you off if you happen to love your older dog! - AnimalLover1

All sites at Key Largo Kampground are individually owned with about 30 vacant sites being available for rent. In addition, some sites with RV's are available for rent through places like VRBO and AirBnB. During the winter months most of the renters stay for several months, though some sites are available for short stays. There is even a small area for tents and pop-ups. Most of the marina sites have a Tiki hut and picnic table. There is a decent sized pool, a wifi hotspot area that is covered, laundry, and there are a variety of activities offered throughout the week (pot luck, coffee & donuts, bingo, shuffleboard, pizza night, etc). I found the residents to be friendly and during the week that we were there it was nice and quiet. There is a small sandy beach area. There is a small strip mall next door with a Publix, K-mart, pizza shop, etc, and John Pennikamp SP is a mile away. The price of $185 was for the rental of a furnished RV through AirBnB. Daily RV site rentals range from $70-$110, with weekly rates from $455 to $715. - driftdiver1

We stayed waterfront for 6 nights during peak season. It was $110/night plus 11% tax. All-in it came out to $122/night! They have a weekly rate but we could only stay 6 nights. Due to an unexpected issue, we needed to reserve at the last minute. We were grateful to get a spot even though it's crazy expensive. This campground is a very "Florida Keys" and a little bit funky. Think 60's flower child goes to margaritaville. There is a mix of trailer homes (some quite old), rv's and tents. All sites are individually owned and only a handful are rented. Most residents stay for several months during the winter season. Everyone was nice and neighborly. There are lots of activities if you want to participate. There was no wifi at our site. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Verizon cell, Sprint Mi-Fi and DirecTV signals worked well. While it was a lot more than we would normally spend, we very much enjoyed our tiki hut, patio area and waterfront view. We would definitely stay here again. - GottaGoNow

This older park has charm and amenities galore. The single lane entrance caused delays re-entering park with folks checking in. The sites were tight but manageable. No antenna TV coverage which was great for disconnecting from media. Verizon coverage was fine. - Maltaman

Good state park. Sites wide enough but a little short. 35' class A backed all the way in and just enough room to park car paralle in front. Thick layer of pea gravel to park on. Drained really well during heavy rain. We were in site 14, which was directly across from bath house. Convienent if you need it, but not a good view. Campground doesn't have a separate tent area. On our last night, 4 campers with 2 tents were right next to us. - Dream Chasers

Sites are very tight but deep. My neighbors sewer hookup was right by my door-ugh! I was unable to extend my awning. Lots to do and see at the park and shopping, good restaurants are close by. This campground is great for a base camp for all the activities but not for the "camping experience". - taplep

This is the worst campground we have ever stayed in. The sites were extremely small and in fact our slide out ended up in our neighbors site. Also there were so many cars and trucks about that they hung into the roadway all over the place. It reminded me of a used car/RV lot. We were also told that the bathroom and showers were for tent campers only. Well there was one tent camper while we were there and I must admit I used the showers anyway. The grounds themselves gave an appearance of being neglected and in needing of sprucing up. We also found the staff a bit unfriendly. We would never camp here again. Wal-Mart offers better camping. - momdoc

We have stayed here twice but will not stay again.
Campground is old and needs a lot of work. Sites are right on top of each other! While I do understand that RV Sites in Florida are "small", the sites here are "smaller".
Majority of "Campers" are either "Seasonal" or "Residents". - Mcpowder
