After spending 6 days in the Florida Keys, we knew that unless there was a tiki bar involved, we were going to be stepping back a bit in terms of quality. Well, there actually IS a tiki bar on site at Southern Comfort RV Resort which made us laugh when we pulled in. Florida City doesn’t have the best of reputations when it comes to crime and there are some areas that are definitely worth avoiding, but we never once felt like we weren’t in a safe environment while staying there. We met several people who were staying in the park and they were all pleasant and it looks like there are quite a few residents who live there full-time.
There are some amenities to the park as well that make life a little more comfortable. There’s the aforementioned Tiki hut which is a bar and can lead to some loud evenings but is convenient if you’re just wanting to have a drink. There are also shuffleboard courts, mail service, on-site propane filling, and laundry facilities available to all residents. We saw quite a few shuffleboard tournaments going on and some of them got a little exciting!
Probably the best thing about Southern Comfort RV Resort is that you are 20 minutes from both Biscayne and Everglades National Parks. We definitely took advantage of their close proximity while we stayed there and was one of the biggest factors in why we chose to stay at this park for two weeks. It’s a little rough around the edges, but Southern Comfort RV Resort in Florida City isn’t a bad place to stop in!
