4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2012

It is not a first class resort, maybe a 2nd class. But it fits our needs nicely. The property is right next to Adams Cut for access to the reefs for diving and fishing. The ramp needs work, but is servicable. We RV, so don't use the bathrooms except to rinse off just before driving home after loading up the RV and boat. The waterfront location is wonderful. This is the Florida Keys. Campgrounds are tight. Sometimes the "Miami" folks stay up late on the weekends. That's why I wear earplugs (wherever I go). For Key Largo, the price is great and the dockage fee is a steal. We come here even when we don't bring the boat! We will be back many times.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

We stayed at an apartment in King's Kamp at the beginning of May 2012. We made arrangements for a late check-in. We were told that the room would be open but no-one would be at the check-in desk. When we got there after mid-night, the room was locked based off the directions we were given. So, we had to get a different room for the night. We came back in the morning and were told that room was given to someone else and that a different apartment door was left open. However, they didn't call or leave us a note(anywhere) on the need to go to a different apartment. The apartment didn't include any kleenex or papertowels so if you plan on staying, make sure bring your own. The showers and laundry room the campground uses were right next to the apartment we rented. They are open 24 hours a day and so we were woken one night when there was a family using the laundry room around mid-night. Also, they don't tell you when you make reservations that there is a 4% surcharge for using credit cards.
I'm giving this an average rating because it fit our needs for having kitchen facilities in the area we needed. If we would have checked in earlier in the day, during normal business hours we could have avoided the situation and with the apartment and would have had time to get cash prior to our commitments, along with papertowels, etc. The loudness after hours however could not be avoided but there are apartments located away from the showers and laundry.

Room Tip: Request an apartment away from the laundry room and showers used by the rest of the campground.

There are many permanent residents, including a rental house on property. The RVs crammed together in every possible spot.

Only one bathroom per gender for entire campground. Only tent campers are supposed to use it, but everyone does. It makes for a long wait when an RVer is taking a shower and you cannot use the bathroom.

Absentee owners make for a noisy rabble after 10 for 2 out of 3 nights we were there.

Tent sites adequate, but located next to garbage bins.

Compared to the old American Outdoors campground, this place is a dump. I would not recommend this for anyone, especially not a tent camper.

, Owner at Kings Kamp, responded to this review, 8 July 2012
It is unfortunate that this guest did not have a pleasant camping experience as thousands of others have had over the past 60 years that Kings Kamp has been in business. As the owner of Kings Kamp, it is disheartening to read such a review. Our family tries on a daily basis to offer camping and RV sites at a reasonable price, in a region of the country that is extremely expensive to operate. We do this by keeping our prices low and competitive, in an effort to offer the best Key Largo experience for the least amount of money. We recently spent over $50,000 installing two new ADA compliant bathrooms and over $300,000 constructing and installing a new sewage collection system.
All of our tent sites have a view of the wide open Bay front, which is not duplicated anywhere in Key Largo. Our garbage bins are enclosed by a 6’ tall privacy wood fence separating it from direct view.
We operate a few small hotel rooms, a rental cottage, one rental RV, RV Sites, both permanent and overnight, Tent sites and a marina, thus offering an amenity for most guests. We do not seek one type of guest, but a variety of visitors. It is upsetting to be referred to as a “dump”.
Please come to visit us and see for yourself what a beautiful piece of paradise Kings Kamp really is.
Thank you
