Key West Camping

Affordable get-aways and beach front second homes

Key West camping is a great solution for families or anyone traveling to the Florida Keys looking for affordable Key West Accommodations. Whether your ideal Key West vacation includes a tent or an rv, Key West is a camper’s paradise.

Imagine driving your tent stakes into the beach with your tent facing the water. In the evening you can build an ocean front camp fire right on the beach. For rustic tent camping in Florida, the Dry Tortugas National Park also allows camping if you prefer to carry everything you need on your back.

If you prefer a camp site with full hook ups for your RV, don’t worry. Geiger Key Marina, Campground and Smokehouse and Boyd’s Campground on Stock Island both offer water front RV sites.
Geiger Key Marina is also an RV park where you can rent a site daily, weekly or monthly. They even offer rates on sites for permanent residents. The Smokehouse Restaurant, which is on the property, is a fun restaurant and bar where you can relax with a cocktail and enjoy one of the great menu choices or listen to a live local band on the weekends. After 50 years of business, Geiger Key Marina has remained free of commercialization. Located less than 10 miles from Key West, this is a great place for an affordable, laid back Key West vacation.

Boyd’s Campground is at the Key West city limits and is another great choice for Key West camping. For some of the best Florida beach camping sites, Boyd’s offers ocean front camp sites for tents and RV’s. Other amenities include four bath houses, heated swimming pool, boat ramp and docks and free wireless internet for guests. There is a good mix of short and long term guests. The campground is across the street from a West Marine store if you need boating or fishing supplies. If you would like a local hot spot for lunch, the Hog Fish Bar is nearby as well. Boyd’s also advertises special rates for college students on spring break and discounts for off season visits.

For the nature lover who loves camping, but not campgrounds, the Dry Tortugas National Park allows primitive camping. You can board one of the ferrys to the Dry Tortugas with all of your provisions. This is the place to truly get away from it all. The Dry Tortugas National Park is located on Garden Key about 70 miles from Key West. The ferry ride from Key West takes about 2 hours and there are no cellular towers in the park. You will need to bring all provisions including water with you. Camp sites are limited and you can stay for a maximum of three days. This is your chance to camp in a secluded area on an island in the Gulf of Mexico.
