There's a congenial atmosphere at this lively family-owned lodge-campground-marina. It's a happy mix of tent campers (who have the fabulous waterfront real estate), RVers (who look pretty permanent), and motel-dwellers who like to mingle at the rooftop pool and challenge each other to a game of poker. Rooms have tile floors, wicker furniture, and doors that allow sea breezes to waft through. A skywalk joins the upper story rooms with the pool and deck. Campsites range from rustic to full hookups. Everything is spotless—even the campground's bathhouse—and the service is good-natured and efficient. The staff will book you a room, sell you bait, or hook you up with a fishing charter. There are plenty of family-oriented activities, so the youngsters will never complain about being bored. Discounts are available for weeklong or longer stays. Pros: local fishing crowd; nice pool; great price. Cons: RV park is too close to motel; deer will eat your food if you're camping. Information provided from www.fodors.com

You wake up to a blissful quiet, broken only by a heron's call and the gentle lap of waves. You snuggle closer. A cloud of soft linen envelops you in a comfortable cocoon. You dream of your trip here last night on The Truman, the 35-foot launch named after one of the island's most famous guests, and glide again through sultry waters to arrive at this remote island full of Jamaican palms and exotic blossoms. And you wonder if you can ever leave. Welcome to Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, the internationally acclaimed private island paradise, listed among the top resorts in the world by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel+Leisure magazine.

Tucked offshore of Little Torch Key and accessible only by boat or seaplane, the resort is a world unto itself, alive with hidden pleasures. Crushed seashell paths wind through lush gardens to thatched-roof bungalows, which serve as your guest quarters. Extra spacious, each Bungalow Suite, Premium Bungalow Suite and Island Grand Suite has romantic touches such as a king-size bed draped in butterfly netting, verandahs with ocean views and, in some rooms, private outdoor showers and jetted tubs.

From the lagoon-style pool to the meditative Zen Garden or the cozy Great Room library, a perfect serenity sweeps over you as you wander the island. Oversized hammocks beckon from the trees. Lounge chairs nestled in the sand call from the beach. And at the end of the day, return to your private bungalow for peaceful seclusion to dream again.

We welcome children 16 years of age and older. We regret that pets are not permitted on the island.

If you're looking for a quiet, laid-back, relaxing atmosphere where you can fish all you want or just sit back and watch the Key deer stroll by while enjoying the sun, the Old Wooden Bridge Guest Cottages has it all!

The Old Wooden Bridge Guest Cottages, located on Big Pine Key, was named for an old wooden bridge that linked Big Pine Key to No Name Key (the bridge has since been replaced with a concrete one). The camp is located at the base of the No Name Key Bridge - the best bridge fishing in the Keys! The original building was built in 1943 and still stands as a store.

Today, the property consists of 14 rental units, a store, boat launch, marina, and fuel dock located on the shoreline of the Bogie Channel. You can find the OWB cottages slightly off the beaten path of the Oversea's Highway at MM31. Bridge Guest Cottages & Marina has a long history in the Keys, people have been returning to the camp for years and their children have followed. Bring the family - soak in the sun by our beautiful swimming pool. Watch the boats return to the OWB marina from their day of fishing or diving while you lie by the pool with a cool refreshing beverage! Not only can you enjoy our refreshing swimming pool, our cottages have undergone significant renovations as well.
