Long Key SP is my pick. Hard to get a spot because there are only 60 sites. All sites are waterfront. I have stayed in all of the state parks in the Keys. They are all great!

I tried to get reservations at ANY state park in the Keys for January--6 months ahead & they were all booked. We stayed at Knights RV park & it was OK. I love the middle keys. It's much more relaxed than Key West or Key Largo. I surely would check for availability before going :-)

Bahia Honda does have walk up sites as do all NP, however, you will probably only get one on a heavy turnover day like Sunday or Monday. I've never done it successfully. The other "secret" spot we love is a place called Venture Out on Cudjoe Key. Only 21 miles from Key West and an easy boat trip out to Looe Key for snorkeling. It is a lovely RV resort but mainly has park models. But there are some snowbirds who pull their rigs out. Some of the owners rent their lots through the management company. We have stayed there a few times for varying lengths of time. Mostly in April or May. Here is a link to their website: Venture Out - Homes / RV Lots for Rent
I agree that Everglades is too far to enjoy anything much more than the upper keys.

Good input, thanks all!
We'll have the flexibility to watch for CG availabilities and seize the time frame for a run from Bradenton. To this point from Durango, every CG has been nearly empty. Guess the campers are further south!

Yes they are! We were in Savannah this past weekend and met a couple from FL. They told us they came north to Savannah because there was no availability in FL.

We spent a week over New Years at Blue Water. Tried to make reservations last March, but don't get confirmed reservations until May. They book well in advance. Great place with the tiki huts and waterfront lots. Is pricy, but a great place to stay. For great food in a casual setting with waterfront/open air seating, try Steiger's, a few miles south of BL. Locals recommended it.

If you want to see the Everglades, stop around Ochopee in the Big Cyprus Swamp area. There are several campgrounds. Visit Clyde Butchers studio for some amazing photography. Ride bikes on a paved trail 7 miles into the swamp (or ride the tram) at Shark Valley, or drive the Loop road. The best two places in the Keys are Islamorada and Key West. I would advise staying on Stock Island at Boyd's because you don't want to be driving far from KW if you wish to partake in the nightlife and dining. KW is totally different from the rest of the FL Keys.

I made a little website to help snag those hard to get cancellations.

http://reserve.wanderinglabs.com/

It will check Reserve America every 5 minutes and email you if something comes available. We have gotten two week stays at Long Key and are hoping something comes up this next week at Bahia Honda. (There were 4 day and 7 day cancellations for Feb this morning at Bahia Honda)

Have been to Bahia Honda State Park. It is great but getting a campsite may be difficult. Check on Reserveamerica.com fro availability. Also, John Pennekamp is another good state park in the northern part of the keys. We were there at Thanksgiving. The camp ground is very nice.

We are at Blue Water Key RV park this week. Very nice but also expensive. We have eaten twice at a little funky bar 2 miles south called Geiger Key RV Park and Bar. Checked out the RV area tonight. It costs about $110-120 a night. It looks clean and like a fun place . Spaces are a little close but right on the water. They are next to the Naval Air base so have some F-16's flying over but I like that. Food good and have live bands in the bar until 10 pm. The RV's were nice and some large class A's. Also can rent a boat slip. You might check it out for availability. Only 12 miles to Key West but a quiet little island. Didn't check out the bathrooms. The bar waitstaff are very friendly and nice like a neighborhood bar. Friday night is steel drum night. The music stops as I said at 10 though and didn't seem too loud in the park. Could be a fun Place!

Leo's Campground on Stock Island is closest to KW. Also the most economical. There are some open spots here now. We are working here so we have been here since August. Nice place, no frills, and has a resident population of iguanas.
