Directions
Due to a hard right turn onto Kennedy Blvd., I suggest using the alternate route. ---- ALTERNATE ROUTE: Follow US 1 South until the intersection where you have to either turn right to continue on US 1 South (Roosevelt) or turn left on A1A South. Turn left on A1A S and go to the first traffic light and turn right on Flagler Ave. Go about 1.25 miles on Flagler and at the first traffic light, turn right on Kennedy. Stay on Kennedy and it will end at the Sigsbee Gate. Once past the gate, go another 0.4 miles to Sigsbee Rd. and turn right onto Sigsbee. Follow Sigsbee approx 0. 5 miles and turn left to campground office. ---- NORMAL ROUTE: Follow US 1 South where US 1 joins Roosevelt Blvd. Turn right onto Roosevelt Blvd. Travel approx 1.2 miles to Kennedy Blvd. (just past the Ibis Bay Resort). Turn right onto Kennedy Blvd. And go through base gate. Follow Kennedy approx 0.4 miles to Sigsbee Rd. and turn right onto Sigsbee. Follow Sigsbee approx 0. 5 miles and turn left to campground office.

This essentially is a cut and paste from my post on the forum. Haven't been here for several years and never during the off season. Others have reviewed. We had nothing but good contacts with the hosts and office. One host had biscuits for the dogs like Loretta used to do. Bottom line is that everyone was professional and pleasant. -Roosevelt Blvd is finished so no need to do the alt route described in the directions...BUT it is a good thing to do to avoid the hard right turn by the motel when there are vehicles exiting Sigsbee. But, it is not a big deal either way.
-Gate IS manned, sometimes...usually during the day and not at night! It varies so have your ID card handy. I was asked once if I had weapons to declare. I didn't. -Don't know if this is new but it seems so: don't turn left into the street in front of the office...they built an access just behind the office that leads to places to park for registration. So, proceed about 25 yards before turning and you'll see the access. The office told me that signage is being made to better depict this and should be in place for snowbird season. -Nice folks in the office...but, man the paperwork the base requires! Do carry your vehicle reg/insurance and pet papers. -THERE IS NO WifI any more except at the office. This is recent, I think. The wifi radio is broadcasting in the CG area but it isn't connected to anything. Maybe they will get a new contract in place soon.
-Not new but some folks don't know it, there is NO TV unless you have satellite. No over the air or cable. -Maybe not new but the CG Duty Office at Trumbo is now next to the pedestrian gate and you can park at the CG station and walk into town. (when last here you had to walk through the main vehicle gate and another time you had to go into HQ bldg to get the gate code.) Gate closes at, 2200 or thereabouts. Also, no more fishing from the pier like you could several years ago. At least, that is what the signs say.

Value: considering it is KW, you can't beat the price. Civilian places cost! Hospitality: Camp hosts are ok. Not the best but ok. One host there should get a job at the county jail He is rude and his NAZI approach to you is horrible. He has his good old boy club. When anything went wrong and he wanted to nail you for some mickey mouse thing he always made sure to tell his good olde boy club members (the RVers he loved). This guy is bad news. Name is *****. Base: has all you need. Commissary, NEX, gas station etc. Only problem with Sigsbee location is there are no longer guards on the gate. Job Blow the civilian can drive through all they want now. Yes base security caught a few of them and escorted them off base. But still not a good feeling. The ladies in the office are great. The camp ground hosts need to improve on their manners and customer service. Some of these host never made it past E3 in the military and now being the all mighty host they want to play CSM (E9). ((Thrumbo still has gate guards)) Bath house: most of the time was dirty. Over used. Laundry: broken machines that never seemed to get fixed. People brought their dogs into the laundry. Even got hostile when told no pets in the laundry room. Guess this is how military camping is these days. Guests: Lots, repeat lots, of CIVILIANS signed in by a authorized sponsor (i.e. retiree, base member etc) are staying in the Fam Camp. You will not notice these types until you ask their status and how they got on base. Few told us "we were signed in by some guy we met who is in the Navy." Worse is these sponsors are never to be seen again and leave these CIVILIAN to be on their own. Sign these civilians into the Fam Camp and never come back. THIS IS WRONG. MWR should be more about taking care of the military instead of worrying about making money. Military have earned the privilege to use such a place. I agree sponsoring a CIVILIAN is ok IF they are related to or immediate guests of the military person signing them in. This is a get over system by civilians (don't mean civil service folks...mean civilians who have not worked or served in the military) to get a huge savings on camping in Key West on base. Tent camping: tent campers are not allowed at Thrumbo. Was nice when they could camp next to the pool. But new commander, so we were told, decided NO tent camping at Thrumbo now. Few tent camping areas at Sigsbee. One is along the water in front of the RVers. The RVers whine and cry about tent campers and their POVs "blocking their view" Well folks the tent campers didn't make that location for tent camping. If you want to whine, whine to the office NOT the tent camper. The hosts are not the nicest bunch of guys towards tent campers. Guess these guys graduated from Howard's Univ (at Hill Fam Camp) with a degree in how to be rude. They are building a tent area on the far side of the FamCamp. Will be a &_#&@( to tent camp where they are making this area now. No view. No breeze. Parking will be tight. Can already see the RVers act like they own all of the spaces along the street where the new tent area is being made. We would NEVER tent camp there.
Overall Experience: KW is great. Love downtown. Most of the RVers are ok. Great number of them are snotty. Generators running all the time. Despite turn off hours. Again its who you know and b&@% if you can get over on the rules. Majority of the RVers never go far from base and their RVs. Seem to have their "groups - clubs - who is who gangs" Sad thing is when asked many of them do not know beans about KW. Never been to Fort Jefferson or anywhere in the area. Few are town drunks. Thrumbo: Thank God ***** the head NAZI is no longer a host there. The " I know everything in the world" maint guy (or wanna be maint guy) at Thrumbo is still there. And still rude as ever. Suggestion: if MWR even reads this page -- put a time limit on how long a host can be a host in KW. The longer they stay as host the more they start to think they are the base commander and make rules up as they go along. That is exactly what host named ***** was doing last winter. Making up rules as he went. WRONG.

We've stayed at the Sigsbee RV Park (NASKW Campground) with our toy hauler (and PWC) a number of times through the years. During the summer, off-season there are always full-hookups available. During our stays we've always found the staff awesome--always helpful and professional. Although we rarely used them, in our opinion some of the bathroom and shower facilities could stand some updating and more thorough cleaning from time to time. And, yes, the full-hook-up sites are mostly rocky coral and a bit on the small side. However, these issues are very easy to overlook if you're adventurous and willing to seek out the full Key West experience. For those into watersports (including snorkeling/diving/kayaking) and fishing, Key West and the Florida Keys offers up some of the best in the country. Water temps are typically 85-90 degrees during the summer! If you bring your boat or jetski, you can park it within walking distance of your RV site for a small daily fee. The Sigsbee Marina (open 7 days) and Sunset Lounge (open 3-4 days a week) are only a 1/2 mile or 10 min. walk away. The marina has fuel, bait/tackle, boat/kayak rentals, and a small launch ramp. The Sunset Lounge is open-air and serves up some very tasty treats along with some breathtaking sunset views. The exchange and commissary, although smaller than average, is also a very short walk away and well stocked for most needs (including RV, fishing, and watersport items). Suggest bringing along your bicycles. We've found them to be the best and most efficient way to really experience Key West (FYI, helmets mandatory on Sigsbee). There's plenty of live entertainment and great food available 7-days a week, downtown, near Duval Street (3.5 miles from Sigsbee). Don't forget to catch the "Sunset" and all the performers at Mallory Square (NW end of Duval St.) at least once during your stay!

Overall, we thought the NASKW is a very nice place to stay and all the previous comments hold true. It's location in Key West is perfect for hitting all the touring spots on the island. We arrived after normal duty hours and called the Camp Host who took us to the overflow lot. The overflow lot has a fantastic view. If you don't mind dry camping, save yourself some money and just stay there. The full hook-up camp has one row of sites that have a good view. We were lucky to get one. We stayed for two weeks. We really have no complaints about the RV Park. There is an ITT office located in the same building as RV Registration so check out some of the discount tickets. We went on the Fury "Reef and Rita" snorkeling excursion. Excellent weather, excellent water, excellent margarita's. Pace yourself on the margarita's. They make them pretty strong and the effect does not hit you till you get off the catamaran. If you ride a motorcycle, plan to go during the winter months as full body armor is required and it gets pretty hot.

What a fabulous place! We stayed at Sigsbee Park for six nights, in a part of it known as "the rockpile" because the spaces are gravel. We were three rows from the water but still had a water view. The spaces are very closely packed together but nobody, including us, seemed to care. Everyone we met was super friendly, probably the friendliest folks of any military park we have ever been at. Check in was quick and easy, and a host gave us a golf cart tour of the campground, lots of excellent tips, and answered all of our questions. The showers and laundry were clean and well kept. The Sunset House beach club has great food and is a short walk from the RV spots. We toured the other campground areas, including all the overflow spots. Trombo Point (also commonly called Trumbo Point) is all dry camping. It is a magnificently beautiful area right on the water. Another jewel is the Navy facility at Truman Annex. It has a fabulous beach and a nice club with food service and other amenities. If you want a virtually private beach in Key West, Truman Annex is the place. You can walk to the Key West downtown (Duval Street and surroundings) from Trombo Point. The downtown is a short drive from Sigsbee Park, but there is free parking near Truman Annex. One of the RV park hosts told us of the free parking and it's a big deal - parking everywhere else is very limited to non-existent, and if you find parking it is extremely expensive. Make the effort to find the free parking and use it, you'll be glad you did. We loved everything about Key West - the RV parks, the military facilities, and the tourist spots. I could not possibly recommend it any more highly. We hated to leave.

Thanks for the alternate route to avoid the construction. It worked well, but missed Kennedy. Street sign very small. I think it is the first stoplight after turning onto Flagler which might help. We had dry camp space one row back from front, so could see the water. Arrived after 3, but camp host very efficient and helpful. Showers and laundry could have been cleaner, but with so much use, would need a full time person to do any better. ITT staff very helpful & good suggestions. Loved the Sunset Lounge and the close proximity of BX & Commissary. Have waited a long time to get to Key West and was not disappointed. Only negative was lack of generator stacks to keep fumes from going into neighbor sites. Did not see any except ours. Also, some portable generators in use were very noisy. Did not feel the hours were misused.

The Campground Office was well marked. Our reception was welcoming and efficient. We were shown the available sites in Overflow and allowed to choose which we wanted. Most of the Overflow sites are spacious, most have tables and all are well defined. We never intended to wait for hook-ups but were told to expect 4-5 weeks wait. Staff was always cheerful and helpful. Their suggestion to eat at Goldman's was spot on. A driving tour of Trumbo Point made us feel we were better off at Sigsbee. Trumbo was clearly homesteaded, with most sites storing accumulations of stuff and all the sites facing the water looked very long-term. Restrooms were clean but there was always a line waiting for the showers. Wifi was non-existent but Fleet & Family had internet connected computers to use. Commissary and Exchange were small but adequate.

We just spent 10 days here and had the most amazing experience. The location could not have been better (we're active duty) right on the water, ITT staff were helpful not only with getting tickets for local attractions and Dry Tortugas, which we thoroughly recommend, but also good, local restaurants. There was no wifi at the campsite and it was slow at the office but let's face it, with that view you weren't in your RV much.

We knew we wouldn't get a FHU site within the two weeks of our stay and we wanted to be closer to downtown Key West. We purposely asked to go into dry camp at Trumbo Point. Many friends said this would be a mistake, as it wasn't as nice as Sigsbee. We didn't have any problems and liked it at Trumbo. Being able to walk out the Coast Guard gate and be at the pier near Mallory Square was great. Since this was the first time we had spent anytime at Key West, this worked out great for us. We didn't need to fight traffic and the road construction around Sigsbee. We walked into town almost everyday. We kept busy for two weeks walking, bike riding, kayaking, visiting the Dry Tortugas, and many happy hours with numerous friends and website users. The office was very friendly. We arrived a little after 1500hrs and I didn't know they closed then. They stayed open another 15 minutes to help us get settled. I think the office hours are very limited. 0900 - 1500 hrs, Mon - Fri. ITT was VERY friendly and useful with information on where to go and what to see, where to eat, etc. Some of the happy hour deals around the pier are good deals. The weather was cool, breezy, some rain, then some humidity. Most days were good for us. While it really can't be prevented, the only negative was the many of the other campers dry camping insisted on running their noisy generators all day long and starting them at 0600hrs. The Navy is supposed be cracking down on this abuse, but some campers got away with it. However, we would still return.

Once again a great experience at Sigsbee, friendly folk and a great location. One week in overflow and two weeks on the rock pile. The only problem was the Wifi service. I signed up to receive Wifi and paid for four weeks usage. The only real place I could get a signal was sitting outside the laundry. Moved into hook ups and now there is nothing at all. Had to walk over to the office to receive a different Wifi which is now free. Very slow downloading. Took a trip over to the Fly Navy building to use their Wifi in the Lobby. Couldn't get a signal. Took the computer to town to Starbucks. Nope, couldn't get it there either.

Just a facilities update here. I just returned from 10 days at Fly Navy Building on Key West. I usually stay at the RV park but had limited time on this trip. Couple of new things since I was there last (summer 2012). 1) Wifi is provided FREE now most places on base. Just need to log in to set up an account (CC is required for ID purposes but no change). 2) The RV park check-in is moved to the old ITT building across from the BX on Sigsbee. 3) Good computers and access at Truman Annex now at no charge. 4) The quality of the food at the Beach Patio on Truman is really good now and you can still get attraction tickets there. This was my first stay at the Fly Navy Building and I surprised to get a room...suite at $75 per day (no tax of course). This room would sell for $450 in KY (I worked in the hotel business in KY). Enjoy.

Great to be back! Ken checked us in within 5 minutes @ the Rock Pile. Spent last evening @ Sabastin Inlet State Park. It was scheduled for a week but the bugs and anti-pet policies wasn't in our comfort zone. No problem, pack up and head for the Keys.. The sign in process and hospitality was above grade and a neighbors cold Beer topped it off. We could look for the negatives if we wanted to but that's no fun. Went to the Sunset Lounge for a sunset dinner and a wonderful chill out after spending time on the road. The bikes are ready to go and a fishing trip has already been set up for Tues. As an added bonus we expected to be in overflow but there's about 10 spots open and life is good. We wish everyone safe travels and invite Key Westers @ heart to return :-). Leave your negatives at the last fill-up and enjoy what you have left.

We can now say we've been to Key West, but we will not return. Still recovering from the bad roads to get there; poor signage on U.S. 1; rotting foliage or sewage smell just past the check-in gate on the island's access road; masses of flies greet you at the dumpster and invite themselves to your campsite. Two days of nats mating and swarming any open orafice on our body; the Sunset Lounge can't keep a cook; the commissary and exchange have limited selections (very small); NO local HD tv; didn't even take down our kayak to put in the water due to severe weather and lightening that turned into TS Andrea. Sewage filled the city streets when the drains couldn't handle the storms. We got to see ONE sunset. It was lovely. Thank goodness we did not have to dry camp. We met a few very nice visiting campers, but the people who live there permanently didn't socialize between thunderstorms. John Pennecamp State Park in Key Largo costs LESS for state seniors, and though it rained as much there it did not smell or have trashy looking campsites.

G.H. left this review using the Directory software: - Beautiful campground and very helpful camp hosts. During this time frame there is a lot of construction in the area of Sigsbee and a lot of the street signs are down. There is no street named Dredger Key Rd. It is only Kennedy. Due to the confusion of driving directions and the construction we did $32,000 damage to our 5th wheel. Would stay at park again, but not until the construction is completed.

Still can not figure out why a weeks deposit is collected for long term campers when no other Famcamp does within the same command. It is very confusing to most people. If your account goes past 30 days because staff is overworked, then your deposit money is used. When they finally get you extended, it is then thirty days plus the deposit they used. And the deposit amount changes when you go from dry to full hook ups. Seems like a lt if trouble. But always a great place to be.

We like Sigsbee RV Campground. They have removed the brush from the 'Circle' overflow area, so you have a clear view of the gulf. Great views. During our time there, we camped in the 'Circle', over at the 'Rock Pile', and in 'Hollywood'. You can not beat the price for camping in the Keys! It is just great. The Rock Pile was our least favorite. Despite full hook ups it is crowded. Even Hollywood is crowded but it was a little nicer. We camped in a 40' motor home. This is our second year here and we will be back.

Check in was easy, the host takes you around to show you the empty spots and you can pick from the open ones. It is common knowledge that you will only have dry camping to choose from. But since we were only here on a short-term basis, that was fine with us. We were facing the gulf and waking up to that view through the front window was worth it! Weather wasn't all that warm while we were here but it is still better than snow. Water and sewer were convenient to get to. Found the showers and laundry to be clean, unlike earlier posts. Agree that using a bicycle is THE way to get around (if you are able). It was a little over 4 miles to get downtown and plenty of places to park a bike. We will definitely be back!

Having just read the USAF LtCol's review in the Mil. Campground news letter, it has become very clear that that review was all about the "Gamesmanship" at this facility. It has also become very clear that the reason this Campground does NOT take reservations is because it would eliminate this "Gamesmanship". Something smells very rotten here, while it all centers around the policy of not taking reservations. The excuses about this policy would be eliminated if management would just follow other NWR Campground excamples in the State of Florida. Having been retired for 20 years now, I will continue to stay away from this Campground. It is a shame.

I did not stay at the campground, I stayed at the townhouses. The staff there was fantastic, the unit was clean, well kept and everything you could ask for. While it is maybe not as spacious and modern as some of the condos offbase, it was clean, everything worked fine, nothing was in disrepair again just an oustanding value!! The staff at the ITT office was also outstanding. Very informative and they knew what they had to offer and the ins and outs. You have to go there, save some money and get the same experience. I have been hesitant to mention this because I do not want it to get hard to get a reservation but their efforts have to be noted.
