You can't see the water from the campsites in the loops over to the right. If you want the water view it's the walk in. I enjoy that campground. I try to get there for a Saturday night at least once a year.

If you have never been to the keys it is worth it. It is different and weird down there. I camped on Bahia Honda key in 2012. Pretty nice, a bit expensive. But everything in the keys is kind of pricey. Don't forget to go to Key West and get your picture at the southern most point!

I'm not generally a fan of KOA, but the one at mm20 on Sugarloaf Key has a nicely wooded "back 40", pool, open air tavern with $2 Sam Adams on tap, breakkie and lunch on site, or take their($$) shuttle or the lower Keys shuttle into KW or ride your bike in, look for free motorcycle parking. Do not let any part of your bike extend beyond the end line of an end spot.

You will not need a reservation, as it is open site camping, but it ain't cheap, $64/night, = tax. Lots of room, though.

This pic is from a little get together last weekend, I think the final count was about 26 bikes. We were able to obtain a very frugal group rate(less than half the regular rate).

Thanks for the warm pics

This is what the yard looked like Thur, and we got four more inches over the weekend...
