The Lobster Shack is a luxury RV on the edge of John Pennekamp State Park. Enjoy all of the fun of camping without any of the hassles. Located in Key Largo Kampground one mile south of Pennekamp, the Lobster Shack is the perfect place to discover the wonders of the Florida Keys.

The space
Key Largo Kampground is located on 40 acres of tropical flowers and foliage, alongside the Atlantic Ocean. The warm waters of the Gulf Stream provide ideal conditions for coral reef snorkeling, scuba diving and ocean fishing. Key Largo is the state's "Dive Capital," with over 25 dive shops and charters to choose from.

The Lobster Shack is located on Lot 157. This is a large lot with plenty of tropical flora and fauna surrounding the unit. There is a picnic table with an umbrella for outside dining. A grill is available for your use. The hot tub, unfortunately, is not working at the moment. It was damaged during the hurricane and hasn't been repaired yet.

The unit itself can comfortably sleep four adults. There is a bedroom in the back of the unit with a queen bed. In the living room, there is a futon that folds into a double bed as well as a couch.

Guest access
You will have access to the unit and everything on the lot. There is a two man Kayak under the unit that you are welcome to use. The seats and the paddles are on the kayak. In the shed, you will find a cart for transporting the kayak to the beach for launching. Life vests are also in the shed along with some masks, snorkels, and fins that are available for your use. We have two bikes that you can also use.

The park has a nice marina area and dock space available for keeping your boat as long as it is less than 25 feet. There is a boat ramp at the marina. You can call the campground directly to reserve a space.

The park also has a pool and a kiddie pool along with a small playground for the younger children. the park. You can sun, swim, or fish.

Other things to note
You must arrive at the campsite before 11 PM as the gate closes at 11 PM and you will not be able to get in without a clicker.

If you arrive between 8 AM and 6 PM, check in at the front office. We will have sent them your information, so there should not be a problem. They will give you a parking pass to get back into the park. If you plan to be out after 11 PM, you can get a clicker to open the gate with a small deposit.

If you arrive after 6 PM but before 11 PM, a security guard will check you in; however, in the morning, you will need to check in with the office.

Location

Key Largo, Florida, United States

Key Largo Kampground is a unique RV park. The campground is set up as a condominium with individual owners for most of the lots (the tent spaces belong to the association). We have owned here for over 17 years and have not found another RV park that we think compares to KLK. We are avid boaters and the location of the park makes it easy for us to enjoy boating, whether it is off shore, in the back country, or paddling on a SUP or kayak. The park is conveniently located within walking distance of Publix, K Mart, Bealls, restaurants and other shops.

Ellie and her husband, Bob, purchased the Lobster Shack over 18 years ago as a future retirement home. When Irma hit Key Largo in 2017, they lost the original Shack. Since then, they have replaced the old unit with a new fifth wheel, and the place is better than before the storm. They love sharing their island home with people who love camping and the Keys.
