Anyone been to any of the following Florida campgrounds?: Destin, the Keys, or the KOA at alligator point?

Hello hammerdwn,
I used to live in the Keys so I am somewhat familiar with the area though not all the campgrounds specifically. I'm more familiar with the middle and lower keys (Marathon thru Key West) than the upper keys. Also I haven't lived there for 5 years. The only campground in the upper keys I know is Long Key State park.I have never stayed there, but since the hurricane A lot of the trees in the campground on the beach are gone, so the summer might not be good. Speaking of which anytime in the summmer is going to be hot and bugey. Bahia Honda SP is nice abouot 35 miles North/East of Key West nice beach often rated in the top ten or twenty in the country. If you do go there look at the Sandspur camping area (at least that's what it used to be called) its located on the Atlantic side of the island. Moving west about 5 miles is the Big pine fishing camp has a marina and a swimming pool I think not much shade though. Another 10 miles west (closer to Key West) is a KOA on Sugarloaf Key nice place has a boat ramp and really rocks on St. Patty's day typical private campgound as far as privacy for tent camping. If you want to be right near Key West if its still there on Stock Island (key just east of Key West) is Boyd's campground a word of warning it is located in a not so good area and the jets from NAS fly over most of the day. Well this turned out a lot longer than I intended and if hurricane Debby has her way may all be for naught, but if you have any further questions let me know.
Hope this helps,
Brian
