“BPKFL this place is what the "Keys" are all about”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Sure you can spend big money to stay in crowded Key West, but to experience what the Florida Keys are really like you need to feel it and this place "Feels It". A bit rustic for some but clean and fun. Just doing nothing here is relaxing and enjoyable but you can always kayak, fish off the bridge, hike, bike, snorkle. Pack your tent and N-Joy.

Great for boat lovers. Boat slips right outside efficiency rooms, easily accessible and safe. Rooms are dated decor, but all you need when you're playing outdoor all day. Rooftop pool and rec room are a bonus. Love the lodge store and all staff are super friendly.

This property offers a wide variety of accommodations from camping, trailers to hotel rooms. It's obvious that many of their guest come back year after year and stay for long periods at a time. In the morning you'll find dozens of folks gathered around the free coffee for what was described to me as "liars club" (everyone lying about the fish that got away.)

We needed a hotel room for a night and ended up in a 2 bedroom kitchenette. It came complete with dishes (some of which were dirty) and we enjoyed preparing a meal instead of eating out. The unit seemed clean but we were surprised they didn't offer any shampoo for overnight guests. (They sell it in the general store). The pool was nice and heated.

The on going joke for us was the TV. My wife kept saying "let's watch a little TV" because the TV was literally little. It must have been 12" and stuck up on top of the refrigerator. Luckily this wasn't important to us.

For us it was a fine night's stay. Very close to the Bahia Honda State Park

Tent camping in this key is something I have always wanted to do but it was until this year that me and my girl finally did. What a wonderful time we had.

This particular campground is the best that I have ever camp on. The facility is family oriented and the people are nice and accommodating We arrived late on Friday and we were assigned a site that we did not like because it was dark and we wanted to be near the water. During the morning we spoke to the service desk and they were very helpful accommodation us to the site we wanted..

The facility is geared with European showers for families or couple to enjoy in addition to the regular men and women showers. Me and my girl loved taking hot showers together and these family showers were private, clean and a great compliment to our rustic camping.

I was just getting impressed and impresses as I found out pool, ping pong tables, arcade and TV rooms for people to watch during the night for those not interested in just the regular beautiful setting that the keys offer. There is also a heated pristine pool on the top deck of the board room it is just simply a fantastic vacation spot just 2 hrs from Miami.

On top of all of these the site is host of the endanger Key Deer and they roam around the campground as in a regular pet zoo for children and adults delight. Be careful with the food though as they are very tame and sometime a bit of a household pet with your food.

We returned to Big Pine Key again for Thanksgiving week this year. The trip was even better than last year. We camped again in our travel trailer, but since this was a return trip we knew a great site we wanted. The staff accommodated our request and the site we had was great. Again this year the staff served an early Thanksgiving dinner a couple of days before Thanksgiving. We rented a boat this year and did some fishing. We caught a ton of snapper! Overall, the trip and our stay at Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge was a total success and we will most likely go back next year. Just a warning that pets are not allowed due to a law that protects the Key Deer that roam free on the island.

Camped at Big Pine Fishing Lodge from 20-23 November 2011. My wife and I tent camped in a full hookup site that worked out perfectly for our needs. The park staff were all pleasent and would bend over backward to accomodate us. The grounds and facilities were spotlessand in good working order. A turkey dinner was provided with all the trimmings at a small charge per person. The meal was outstanding and was without a doubt, a great bargain. The pool is atop one of the recreation buildings allowing for privacy and better sun bathing access. The park has enough to do that we only left to go to Key West Malory Square, Duval Street and some shopping.

Room Tip: Ask for the campsites on the ocean.

We have been coming to Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge over ten years and have never had a problem!!!! They do not put up with unfriendly employees and take very good care of the park. There are several RV'ers that come the same time every year and we have a blast. Joanne is remarkable and her daughter, Brenda, is folowing in her footsteps! If you see something wrong, report it to the office and they will have it fixed immediately! As far as the person griping about the chain, we too don't care for it when we are leaving to go out to eat and our hands get dirty or the hair we just fixed gets wet in the rain but if that's the only problem, we get over it.
BIG PIINE FISHING LODGE beats any other place we've ever camped at. I'm so sad to be leaving nest Saturday. We will miss their hospitality and all the fun. If you go to Key West for the day, be sure to stop by Irish Keven's when John Solinski is playing there! It's only 33 miles from here.
See you next year Sept 15 to Oct 15th!!!
