Leaving Disney March 4 and heading south, any suggestions for campground in the Keys or before. Perhaps park the motorhome and drive to the Keys? Never been there, true Newbie. 36.5 motorhome with a toad. Thanks

We spent 2 weeks on Bahia Honda at the state park in October. Because it's inexpensive and very nice, it may be hard to get a campsite.

My favorites in the Keys are Bahia Honda State Park and Long Key State Park. Here's a list of Campgrounds in the Florida Keys and some of them have reviews too to help.

Avoid Knights Key in Marathon. Way too expensive for a 2-service resort. And you might get ants in your rig like we did last Spring. Get closer to Key West for nicer at the same prices.

Bluewater Key (bluewaterkey.com) is at mm14.5 and is an absolutely wonderful place. We'll be there this spring, May 15-31!

We were there in Jan. on our Harley. Hotels were 250.00 a night. Camping would be cheaper.

Lol, it's now May and just seeing this post again.  We ended up staying at Miami Everglades Park and drove in our toad to Key West.  Stayed at the Best Western and had a beautiful view of the water.  If we go again, we will plan way in advance.
