The first picture is the bayside beach area. Buttonwood CG is beyond it in the patch of green on the upper left side of the picture.

The second picture of the CG was taken from the highway bridge. Our "Unit" is sitting on site 7. Site 40 is across the driveway from site 7... in the area behind that bulgie in the foreground.

We liked our site and 40 is not bad. Of course, any camp site is as good as the folks parked nextdoor or behind. The traffic noise was barely audible over the constant hum of wind and water. That may be different in April if things are calm.

If you have not been to Bahia Honda before, I think you will like it. Also about 35 miles from Key West which is fun for a day trip.

The beach on the seaside is very long and fun to walk along. The handmade scow pictured here arrived the night before with a load of Cubans.
We also did some kayaking, actually circumnavigating the island.

We spent a lovely New Year's Eve at camp with shrimp cocktail, champagne and steaks on the grill.
Did lots of bike riding around neighboring islands and stumbled on this fine eatery.

Hi Roger

Thanks for the great pics. We will be working our way down to the Keys from the Atlanta area. Our first stop will be in Crystal River from there we will travel to Jupiter and spend a few days at Jonathan Dickenson State Park, From there the Keys. By the way how long of a drive is it from Miami to Bhaia Honda?

Thanks again

Don

Don,

Just so happens we stayed at Bahia Honda the middle of April 1999. We'd been at Long Key State Park for two weeks and had to leave because of time limits.

We were just winging it in those days, so we arrived at Bahia Honda with no reservations and got like the last available campsite. We left the next day... the mosquitoes drove us out! We were not near the water, and there was very little breeze. We headed back to Long Key and stayed there until May.

Forewarned is forearmed... long sleeves and long pants and plenty of deet.

We also stayed at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in 2001, about the same time of the year. There is actually two separate campgrounds, one close to the highway, the other way back in. If you want quiet nights, ask for the farther campground. It really is a very pretty park. If you ride your bikes around, stop and look in the culverts for the baby alligators!

It's about 80 miles from Homestead to Bahia Honda. If you're driving during the daylight hours, you can pretty much count on doing the speed limit or less from Key Largo south.

After you get setup and decide to go to Key West, you be sure and stop at the Sand Bar Restaurant for the best grouper sandwich and a cool one. It's on the right hand side of the road, somewhere near Little Torch Key. You can't miss it.

My wife and son and I will be at campsite #5 in Buttonwood Campground later in April.

We're also planning on kayaking, but will rent kayaks there.
