It is a nice place to stay, but maybe not the best if you're going tent camping (as you might guess from the name). We went there because most other places were booked out. It's just not the right atmosphere for tent camping in my opinion. Also you're right next to US 1 (although what place in the Keys is not?) so you will definitely hear the cars going by at night.
Other than that the place is not bad. If you pay more you can get a spot close to the water. The whole area is lit by streetlights in the night (again not so great atmosphere for tent camping, but you can feel safe) and patrolled by the police/sheriff. They also said they have security personel, though I never saw them. The bathhouse looks okay, has several showers and toilets. They also have a bar on the water (which we never visited) and a club house with pool, table tennis and shuffle board. And they have Wi-Fi.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Knights Key Park and Marina has been a destination for campers for over 50 years. If you long for that laid back Florida Keys lifestyle, the way things used to be, you are going to love it here. We are not as fancy as some of the newer parks but we do offer the tropical island feel vacationers are looking for. Our staff is made up of friendly, knowledgeable locals that will gladly help with any needs. We are located in Marathon in the heart of the Keys! At mile marker 47, at the north end of the famous Seven Mile bridge on the Atlantic side. Our unique location offers quick access to the gulf or the Atlantic and is only 5.5 nautical miles to Sombrero Reef one of the most magnificent coral reefs in the keys! Knights Key is only 16 minutes away from Bahia Honda State Park, voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We are also port for the Pigeon Key ferry boat which offers numerous day trips to the historical Pigeon Key. I am sure you have heard the term "enter as strangers leave as friends" before and though I can't prove it I'm pretty sure it originated here on the FUN ISLAND! Your hosts Randy, Debra and our great staff at Knights Key. ... more less
