    Please share your comments about your experience : My review is for work campers or individuals who might want to work here! I am a very honest and hardworking person. I worked at Key Largo Kampground for over 6 months as the office supervisor, I made several improvements in cleanliness and office operations during my stay and received nothing but praise from owners, guests & the board on my work performance. Most of the owners in the park are absolutely fantastic! I loved getting to know many of the residents and guests. But, you have a Board of Directors here that are just awful human beings. It's the current President and Secretary of the Board that are unbelievably callous and disrespectful. They are bullies and will give you no explanation for their actions. People don't treat people like this, it's not normal behavior. The maintenance supervisor hired in 2019 is a hothead who was previously banned from being in the park. I was confronted & harassed by this man and when I complained about it, I was told I was being uncooperative. That's when everything went bad for me. I felt very uneasy with the situation and realized that I was the one who was being reprimanded for standing up to the disrespect. I put in my notice to leave once I found new employment. But, the board and owners requested I stay. I was overwhelmed with the support of owners and thought maybe I did make a mistake. The secretary asked that I put in writing that I rescind my notice, and I did. But, 9 days later, 2 days past what would have been my last day the President fired me. NO EXPLANATION. He said that he would compensate some travel expenses to "soften the blow". No compensation has been received and they did not respond to my email requests or texts. Florida might be an "At Will Employment" state, but this was just cruelty. Please, be aware of working for these people. I would hate to see anyone else go through the experience that I did. Be aware of the drama of this Campground, they thrive on it! You will have cameras on you constantly - which I didn't mind because I never did anything inappropriate, but it will creep you out. They have cameras on you 24/7 and you have several people monitoring the video constantly! You will feel like you are in the movie "The Truman Show".
