Description

There are four state parks to camp in the Keys. All are open for camping except Long Key at this time which is still under reconstruction. Reservations are hard to get but you can reserve 11 mos. in advance thru ReserveAmerica. Depending on the weather, Pennekamp has great snorkeling, as most do in the Keys. Camping by the mangrove side of the campground means mosquitos.

Latest Check-Ins

Nice spot in the Keys. Most of the campgrounds are booked months in advance, but we were able to get this one three weeks before our arrival and it is cheaper than most other places. The campsites are pretty close together and it looks like a lot of people stay for the entire winter. Great spot if you have a kayak or SUP, but you can also rent them. Lots of amenities, including electric hookups, dump, potable water, shower, coin laundry, and a cafe on site. Spent about $30 which we thought was worth it. Intermittent cell service on ATT.

We lucked out and got this place for two nights due to a cancellation. Check The Reserve America app every morning after 8:00 am. They post cancellations. This place has super tight spots but it’s in Key Largo so we weren’t even at our site except to sleep!

Very nice campground, for the price it's hard to beat. Private beach, kayak rentals and boat trips in addition to other amenities.

I like the park. its one of few campgrounds on the keys which are affordable. Sites are rather narrow but so are the keys. space is precious here. restrooms are good and clean. beach areas are in walking distance. you can book different boat and dive/snorkeling tours. wifi at concessions only.

$50 per night. Book online at Reservations America. Very noisy and water too murky for snorkeling. Only state park available in the Keys at the moment due to Hurricane Irma.
