We booked far in advance to secure a beachfront site at the Sugarloaf/Key West KOA – the Southernmost KOA – but lucky for us we’d arrived ahead of the seasonal crowd and the park was only about a third full. The KOA was well maintained by the friendly staff. They had a marina, pool and hot tub, open air pub, excellent laundry facility, and a small restaurant and office/store. Nice playground for the kids and lots of planned activities too. Boat, paddleboards, bikes, and snorkeling equipment could all be rented from the KOA.

We loved that our site fronted the shared beach/swimming area and we were able to pull in to take advantage of the view. The KOA provided beach chairs so we didn’t even need to set ours up. Site spacing was adequate, although palm trees don’t offer any privacy between sites. :)

Note: the price varies by site type and ours was probably one of the more expensive ones. The $108/night fee noted also includes taxes and the 10% KOA discount.

There is a lot to do in the area. Visit Key West, take the ferry to Dry Tortugas National Park, kayak, snorkel, bike, and more. Since the park felt nearly empty, it was very quiet and relaxing. The beachfront spots might not be so attractive if the park was full and busy.

We had 3-4 bars of 4G unboosted. Free Wifi that worked ok, but required frequent log-ins and sometimes ran slow.

We booked this site in February for our stay over Christmas. I was not expecting much and secretly hoping that it would be my back-up plan, as I had hoped to snag a cancellation in the local state park. I never did get a cancellation and we spent four nights here over Christmas. Our site was extremely wide byFL Keys standards, nearly double the width of our site at Boyd's. Though it was not on the water, it worked out extremely well as the waterfront sites were windy that week. The pool was great and the poolside bar had the best Pina Colada that I've had in decades. The beach area is small, but nice and there was a floating trampoline and floating rock-climbing wall that my tweens spent countless hours on each day. The KOA had cute activities for Christmas, though we choose not to participate. This park is 20-30 minutes from downtown Key West and equally the same distance to Bahia Honda State Park in the opposite direction. I felt like it was a good central location. We really enjoyed our time here and would definitely park here again. I would not recommend having a spot on the street that the office is on, as the traffic is heavy with daily check-ins.

The campsite is gone! I went here to refill my propane tank and the entire place was gone! Bulldozed! I was greeted by a man in a golf cart who told me the campsite was closed indefinitely for rebuilding! There is no campsite here!

This campground has been completely rebuilt since it was damaged by a hurricane. They were still putting the finishing touches on it when we were there. It has true hi-speed internet service. I tested at 95 meg down and up.

Easy drive to Key West but so much to do at the resort didn’t need to leave. Really nice pool and hot tub with a fun happy hour. Live music, cafe, store, beach and the best laundry we’ve ever used while camping. Shout out to Katlyn the bartender who was really nice and fun to talk to.
Only bad part is that word has gotten out that they are open and they are already filling up for next winter.

We've been RVing since 1986. We've been back and forth across the country three times and up and down the east coast from Maine to Florida more times than we can remember and we've stayed at a lot of campgrounds over the years.
Up until last week my favorite campground in the country was Fort Wilderness at Disney....until last week..well, I guess Fort Wilderness is still my favorite because you know, Disneyworld.
Last week we checked into an 8 day stay at KOA Sugarloaf/Key West. This is without a doubt the nicest KOA we've ever stayed at. After being flattened by Hurricane Irma in 2017 they took their time rebuilding. They put a lot of time, thought and effort into the rebuild and it shows. The landscaping/plantings are very appealing. They left enough space between sites that you're not on top of your neighbors. They did something here that I've never seen in another campground. They put in meandering paver block paths in a couple locations in each row of sites so you don't have to walk all the way to the end of a row to get around, you can go cross country without walking through other people's sites. Wi-Fi is better here than at home. They have Wi-Fi amplifiers mounted on the utility posts on just about every other site. The staff is friendly, the sites are beautiful. The pool/cabana/bar is something out of a 5 star hotel resort. They have their own marina with boat and water toy rentals. If you bring your own boat they have an outstanding boat launch. There is a beach area but this part of the Keys is pretty much coral so you'll need water socks or Teva's if you're going in the water. It's 20 minutes up the road from Key West. If you don't have a toad the city bus, which runs the length of the Keys in both directions, stops on RT 1 in front of the campground. All of the utilities are in a centralized pylon that's raised above the high water mark for the next hurricane. There's two sewer hookups, one towards the back of the site and one about 1/3 of the way from the street to allow any rig configuration to hook up without 40' of sewer hose. The tent sites (photo included) have what looks to be a 20X20 cement pad along with water, electric and cable TV (cable TV at every site by the way). Top it all off with two laundramats, a store that also sells pizza, burgers and other meal items fresh and has a covered deck with tables and chairs to enjoy your purchases. There's a fenced in dog play yard so if your four legged family member is traveling with you they have a place to romp too. Trash pickup is continuous from morning until sunset. Leave it out front and it's picked up (separate your recyclables please!) Someone on KOA's page complained about no-see-um's bothering them. It's Florida, there's bugs here. My wife got a couple small bites, I guess they don't like the taste of me. But if you're sensitive and forgot your bug repellent they sell it in the store. I recommend the White Mountain Black Fly repellent, it's what we use at home during black fly season and it works. Sites range from the tent sites to standard gravel sites with no patio to gravel sites with a paver block patio to sites that are completely covered with paver blocks. There are pull through sites, waterfront sites and back in mangrove sites. All sites have fire rings and picnic tables. The deluxe sites have a cement fire ring instead of a steel ring. All the deluxe sites seem to have Adirondack chairs and tables as part of their setup. They're also in the process of putting up two buildings with suites for anyone who doesn't have an RV and wants to stay here. What's not to like? Honestly, it's so nice that word travels fast. We heard today that February of 2023 is already completely booked. This campground is the shining star for KOA. Prior to coming here we stayed at the KOA in Davie/Fort Lauderdale and I already posted about the problems there. We went from rock bottom to the best of the best in the KOA campgrounds. Honestly it is expensive compared to other campgrounds. But a decent hotel room in Key West is $400 a night. Everything is more expensive in the Keys but you get what you pay for. You're getting a lot here compared to other campgrounds for what it costs.

The remodel they have done here is fantastic. The place is beautiful, clean, and really well landscaped. The pool area and beach are both nice. We kayaked right from the dock. It’s pretty pricey, but all the amenities are there. (We we’re really happy we were no where near the construction.)
