Good news about Keys camping
We just got back from spending a couple of weeks in the Keys ,had good weather , great fishing and our dog had a great time at the beach (we did too). But best of all the subprime mess has saved a couple campgrounds from becoming condo lands. Knights Key in Marathon is remaining open and my favorite spot for over 30 years- Fiesta Key KOA is staying open though it will is longer affiliated with KOA and will be independently owned.
We stayed at Fiesta Key and I am happy to report the place is getting put back in good order and the staff was terrific. While we were there they even had a slow season deal , stay 3 nights for the price of two. Since they will no longer be a KOA they plan to offer weekly and monthly rates in the upcoming season we were told. I know- its a lot more pricey than the state parks and you are not camped on a beach but I don't like camping in sand- had enough of that in near a place called Da Nang.
