First time in Florida

The DW and I are thinking of heading down to the Keys in Apr/May, '14. This will be our first real camping holiday in decades and now that we are 'empty nesters' we can take our time. We will be hauling a 2304 Ultralite from Ontario (c/w dog).
We have never really been south of Pensilvania and am wondering if anyone can comment on the following:

1) Are reservations required during this time period?
2) Are there many camping sites on the Keys themselves?
3) Is there much of a difference between state parks and private camp sites?
4) Would it be easier to dry camp vs finding a site with services?

We appreciate any insight the group may have.

Greetings from Canada.

Better make reservations, campgrounds in the keys stay pretty full year round. It is also Spring Break for college!

Yes, it actually might be a little late for reservations in the keys for May - might want to start making calls!

We are planning on going the first week of September. We are coming from Orlando and would like to stay somewhere in between Orlando and Florida Caverns. Any suggestions?

Well the insistent rain beat us down. Loved the camping area. Wonderful beach front cs. But being stuck inside watching the surf and storms, had to pull out and head for better weather. Now we are in Stone Mountain park in Atlanta. Still have rain but we have more activities for the kids to do indoors. Gonna check out the Atlanta aquarium. And then sightsee around the mountain. Gotta make the best of the crappy weather. The biggest kick in the pants is the weather back home is the best it has been in August in years!!
