“Pretty good.”

Overall Rating

Our RV dealer gave us a 14 day free trial to Thousand Trails. We used the last 9 days at Sunshine Key. There's nothing really bad to say about this park from what I experienced. We stayed at lot 42. Accessing lot 42 via Tuna drive was a bit aggravating due to the big bush on the corner that was planted by the permanent resident that lives on the corner but he helped to keep us from scratching our class A. Once we got to the site, we found it spacious. Showers were very close to our lot as well. Nice pool and café on site. Laundry was $2.25 a load as well as the dryers. Credit card is the only method of payment and clothes dried very well. Probably wouldn't use this method again. Over all it was one of the nicer sites that TT had to offer. AND no we will not be TT members after all.

“A way to stay cheap in the Keys”

So everyone knows, or soon discovers after trying to book a campground in the Florida Keys, that you have two choices: super expensive private parks or praying there will somehow be an open spot in one of the state parks.

As for the latter, unless you literally book a year in advance, you're basically out of luck. The state parks are gorgeous, and snowbirds apparently wait on their computers until the very second new bookings are excepted, and subsequently snatch them up.

However, if you go to http://readycampgo.com and sign up for a membership, you can get a big discount here at Sunshine Key RV Resort.

Basically, it's $49 / year for a membership. That gets you 15 nights at any of these Encore (aka, Ready, Camp, Go and Thousand Trails) parks in the southeast (it works in other regions too, but an annual membership only gets you access to one region), and those 15 night only cost $20. Compare that to $80 - $100 regular rate at Sunshine Key, and you quickly can add up the savings. There is also a "resort" fee, $3 / day, but if you stay the full 15 nights (and again, it doesn't have to be at this one park), you end up paying $26.27 / night.

Which is a pretty fabulous rate.

Aside from all of that top secret info I just dropped, the park is a-okay. The sites are decently spacious, you definitely don't feel stacked on top of one another. There are a lot of longer-term and permanent residence, but none of them appear trashy or "trailer park" like. There's a small man-made beach where we saw dolphins, and a quick jaunt across US 1 (on foot, 5 minutes tops) to see the sun rise over a completely undeveloped side of the island. There's a gas station on site, including a convenience store with "Wings" style souvenirs, shirts, etc. but most importantly decent beer. It's maybe 2 minutes to drive to Bahia Honda, and 10 - 15 to Big Pine Key where you can hit up bars, restaurants, a grocery store, that kind of stuff.

We were here right before Christmas, and all of the more permanent residence had decked their rigs out for the holidays so it was really fun walking all around and checking out their decorations. Definitely worse places to stay!
