There is not really another choice in Miami for tenters, but for $16.95/n with tax, there is nothing to complain about. The tent campsites are on a big field with trees and you basically just look for a spot you like. They have tables and grills spread around in that field and you just pick one, pitch your tent and you are good to go. The location is good and close to the Zoo in case you want to go there. The drive to DT Miami is about 20-30min depending if you take Hwy 1 or the Turnpike.
The bathrooms are nice, spacious and clean and they also offer good laundry facilities. They do offer a pool, but it is only seasonal and wasn't open when we were there.
There are a lot of RV campers here, that seemed to stay there for longer periods of time.They even have their own white picket fence and it looks like a permanent home. There was a small area w/o hook-ups for RVs when they are overbooked, but it doesn't seem pretty and nice over there. It looked more like an RV parking lot, nothing you would want to stay longer. I guess it is enough for an overnight stay.
The staff was always friendly in the office, make sure to check in by 5PM, that is when the office closes for the night. There always seems to be a ranger driving around, checking in on things after hours. It really made us feel safe, especially when you are in a tent.
