A Note For RV'ers
More and more often recreational vehicle owners traveling in South Florida are opting to experience the scenic beauty available along U.S.1 and drive to Key West. Unlike other areas of the United States, campgrounds and waste-pumpout stations are limited in Key West. One popular campground along the city's historic seaport has been sold and the grounds will eventually be the location of a hotel, limiting the already short supply of campground space on the island.
The City of Key West is concerned that recreational vehicle owners are driving to the island without being aware of the limited services available to them. RVers planning on an overnight stay should make reservations ahead of time, since most of the season the few campgrounds in the Lower Keys are often sold out - especially on weekends and holidays.
City ordinances forbid overnight parking on city streets, parks and beaches. It also forbids RVs in excess of 20 feet in length or seven feet in width from parking on city streets; these vehicles may park in designated parking lots, but not for overnight. Signs have been placed along U.S.1 advising RVers of the parking prohibition and directing them to public and private lawful parking facilities within city limits.
The City of Key West suggests RVers plan ahead, make reservations for their visit to the city and the end result promises to be an adventure in paradise that will be enjoyed by all.
