Directions

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.

Pros Location – we lucked out with a site right on the water! FHU available for 93 sites Commissary/Exchange in walking distance of campgrounds Level gravel sites Front desk staff was very helpful Camphost available for assistance if needed 5 6’s taxi service available to your specific site (as of Nov 2018) Pool located at Trumbo Fitness Center in welcome center Ticket and Travel office in welcome center Sunset Lounge has decent drinks/food located at the Marina (W-Sun 4-10pm) Cons No reservations taken – you must book what is available and hope and pray you get a FHU site at Sigsbee if that is what you are aiming for Wifi was spotty (GoWifi) Front desk is open from 9-2pm daily +/- From Oct- June There is a MANDATORY rotation every 14 days – no problem for us but for larger rigs who tend to spread out across their entire site were frustrated by the requirement. Please note that there are several bases in Key West - NAS Key West (Sigsbee), Truman, Boca Chica and Trumbo.

We've visited the NASKW Sigsbee Campground with our RV a number of times during the last 8 years. We're currently 2 weeks into a 4 week stay in the "Circle" area (full hook-up). With the Fantasy Fest (18-28 Oct) a few days away, Sigsbee's full hook-up sites are nearing capacity. Mandatory "rotations" from full hook-ups to dry, and vice versa, will likely start in the next week or so. With the recent implementation of the 180 day maximum stay limit (requiring a 14 "night" departure before returning) homesteaders are a bit less prevalent than in the past. FYI, the rates for full hookup sites increased a dollar to $27 (for retired/active) on 01 Oct 2018. I believe the dry camping rate went up a dollar to $17, too, but haven't confirmed that yet. The GoWiFi (free) has been up and running (in the Circle) with little to no downtime (~2.0 mbps down/~.80 mbps up). Operationally, everything is more or less back to normal after the hurricane last year. The most noticeable change is the loss of vegetation and trees in the "Circle" (Maine Rd.) and "Hollywood" (NW corner of Arthur Sawyer Dr.) areas. The "Rock Pile" (far east corner of Arthur Sawyer Rd.) had very little vegetation to begin with so not much change there. As for Key West itself, it doesn't appear last year's hurricane has had any lasting effect. All the fun and festivities seem to be on par with years past :) Update/correction: Previously I posted that the management at the Sigsbee Campground had sent out a 25 Oct 2018 flyer stating generators will be allowed to run 24/7 in the dry camping areas---no more generator quiet hours. On 26 Oct 2018, they sent out another flyer reversing policy, stating the 11pm - 7am "generator quiet hours have been reinstated." Hhmm, not sure what to make of this flip-flop.

We spent 21 nights with W/S/E-50 Amp in a 38 Ft. Class A Motorhome. Due to a tight right turn off of U.S. Route 1 onto Sigsbee Rd, we recommend following the alternate route directions described on the US Military Campgrounds and RV Parks website. The campground office was easy to find and provided good parking for both motorhome and disconnecting the tow while checking-in. Our site had a large concrete pad with a composite picnic table. The Wi-Fi and cell phone reception was good. We had no problem using our Dish Tailgater for TV programs but received no programs via TV antenna. Downtown Key West is just 10 minutes from the installation (watch out for the parking fees). Our only complaint for this campground is the laundry room was always dirty. We had to wipe down the machines and tables before each use. Overall though, this campground was very good and we would certainly stay here again.

We tent camped at Sigsbee for 4 nights. Since this was a holiday weekend and we arrived on Sunday, we contacted the weekend camp host who arrived a few minutes after we called. Jesse, the camp host, was very polite and helpful both for check-in and throughout our stay. We were assigned T6 right on the waterfront (no electrical or water hookup).The weather was less than ideal for setting up for tent camping as "Alberto" was making its way North just West of the Keys. I won't bore you with details about wind and rain since it's probably not too applicable for most of you. The weather inevitably improved and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The campground, bath house, laundry, etc. were all nicer than expected. Thumbs up to everyone at the MWR camp office, security gate and exchange for their courtesy and positive attitude which made us feel very welcome. (Besides the weather, the only thing I would change is to dis-invite the mosquitoes.)

We made reservations as soon as it was opened late December. 2 weeks in the "dry" camping was fine, we had no issues here. Moved over to full hookups for the rest of our stay. Restrooms/showers were clean and kept up nicely every day. The laundry could use some cleaning/updating, but remember they just went through a hurricane so some machines do not work. Wash is $1.00 and dry is $1.00 for 45 min. You do have to cut your own grass/trim as the camp host has lawnmowers/trimmers/gas available at their site. The vacation rentals are not open at this time but saw on the MWR site that they are opening reservation line up late March. Overall, we thought this campground was nice and staff and camp hosts helpful. There are a LOT of empty sites in the dry camping so not sure why you could not come here without a reservation and be parked. OH, do NOT come in after dark, you will NOT be parked, you will have to stay in the parking lot at the office. We did not use the alternate route (we have a 38' + toad) and had no problems turning at the light at IBIS resort. Noticed the street sign there said Kennedy goes left and Sigsbee Road is right. There are plenty of full hookups that are reserved for AD.

Captain Baker commander of NASKW posted new orders for utilizing sigsbee...fun new rules!!! Reservations...gotta have one 2017-2018 season... Welcome to 180 day calendar limit stays per year for RVs, no more year round forever squatting/homesteading...tent camping is now limited to 30 days also... I didn't read about the banning of Portable carports used as tents??? 2016-2017 season Capt Baker was heard saying he wanted to cease the use of cap reports as tents as it made the Hollywood tent area look like a row of garages not a campground LOL! Here is link to the memorandum... https://www.navymwrkeywest.com/modules/media/?do=download&id=224be1ff-98a9-4302-add6-457a965e5296

Wow, what a great place. We have heard of this park since we started RVing three years ago. It is better than we had heard. Of course this is considered the low season for Key West, but it has been wonderful. We had no idea how pleasant it would be in the Keys this time of the year. We arrived late on Monday and missed the sign for the campground office, but the Camp Host, Jeff saw us driving around and caught up with us to register and assign an overnight parking site. We followed the instructions posted on this page, but when we arrived at Kennedy it was under construction and we could not turn. We went further into town and turned on another street. The streets are narrow and it made for an interesting ride returning to Sigsbee. We will use the instructions next time we return. Lots of low hanging trees no matter which way you go. We were able to avoid most of them. After passing thru the gate the road forks to the right, the first road on your left after the fork is Arthur Sawyer Rd. The first driveway past Arthur Sawyer is the entrance to the parking lot at the campground office. We spent the first two nights in the overflow area. No restrictions on running your generator and we were parked 20 feet from the Gulf, what a beautiful place. We were willing to stay there for weeks, but that is not the way the system works. The computer program decides where you will stay and for how long. We had two nights in the overflow ($14 per night) then we moved to a 50 amp, full hook up by the laundry room ($24 per night). This was also a great location, just one row from the water. The RV lots are tight but everyone we met was friendly. I like the computer program assignment system, no homesteading and move when you are told. The camp host left a note on our door handle with the information of when and where we would move. We have had activities every day. The beach at Boca Chica Naval Air Station is our favorite. The marinas rent paddle boards, kayaks and a variety of boats. We were here for the Key West Lobster Fest, we will return for this fest in the future. Just a great place to spend time at. So many things to do and to see, we loved the chickens and the iguanas wandering around the base and the town. 45ft Entegra, Aspire RV with a Jeep. Wrangler, Unlimited

This was my first visit to this campground, and not being familiar with the way things work was might a shock. Our host was a individual named "Jeff". Jeff was very helpful and made us feel like family. He explain how things worked and guided us to our overflow spot and said that we would be here for about two days with no kind of service,known as dry camping. It was hotter than you can imagine, thank god I had gas and a tank of water. Water is provided up the street. Jeff was good enough to get us a new spot the next day in the full service part of the camp. Being a heart patience and a 100% disabled veteran I really needed the full service site. My wife and I only came down for a few days for my birthday,and to visit the area,without the full service there was no way we could have stayed. During my short stay I noticed a lot of active duty personnel living there. I do not have a problem with active duty people having priority. What I have a problem with they buy these cheap trailers move in not knowing a thing about rving and moving all their friends and families in and collecting BAQ. Anyways that all I'm saying about that. Overall we had a great time, enjoyed having Jeff as our host. I will come back when it is a more cool. Already looking forward to the visit,thanks again and a special thanks to Jeff, Ray Wyatt retired USN

My 2015 stay here was off season (may thru oct) as I moved off my sailboat in marathon fla to live ashore for awhile which turned into six months as I moved back on my boat after fantasy fest 2015, When I got there May 1st 2015 place was emptying or almost at off season population empty (there was no rotation) I seemingly became the outcast/object of aggression by the longtime local year round clique who gossiped about me to no end. It got so bad even the manager lady and husband were sassing off to me at the dead as a graveyard sunset lounge before the campground manager realized I was the victim of warrentless harassment as the local clique was bored and using me as a topic of gossip/conversation, vilifying me for anything and everything. Back then they let tent camping go on at the circle on the water like at Hollywood tenting area which I loved, I'd paddleboard everyday, to friends boats at garrison bight mooring field, cow key channel lazy dog and ajoining bar etc even doing the loop around key west 12.5 miles. Gossip was so bad, I went home with a woman from the bar on duval which turned into a multiple day fling at her McMansion in sugarloaf and the manager lady personally called me asking if I was ok saying she was concerned as no one had seen me for a few days??? This is a good example how intrusive/phony people get here... Facilities are fair for what you're paying IMO, beach patio @ Truman annex is great place to take afternoon nap on a hot day/enjoy some air conditioning and offers beer for $1.50 can. I used showers at college pool in morning after my swim and gym over at Truman annex gym vs the campground which is why I don't see a problem with campground showers? Laundry is best done weekday nites later the better, like after midnight and especially before 7am when dependas hijack the laundry rooms with their gloomy demeaners all day? Powerboat marina on sigsbee is best place to buy ice, if you bring a boat great place to launch/trailer up, buy bait etc. Boca Chica deep water marina has better bar, navigators with its own swimming area though sound of freedom (jet noise) is worse. Lap swimming is offered for free at trumbo but it's too loud with screaming kids, so I go to community college where serious lap swimmers swim for $50 month unlimited or $5 day-no lounging/tanning unlike trumbo but best sunbathing is higgs or southernmost or state park. If you're living aboard a boat wanting to come ashore best to come ashore near Hollywood bathhouse and tie off dink on rocks as exchange/commissary is 400 yards and closest landing option; place signage in dink explaining you're military and going to exchange as drama queens of the snowbird season clique will certainly call master at arms like you're an illegal invader, again, too many self appointed sheriffs here. After living here before, I don't get friendly or take interest with long term/homesteading/returning campers anymore, lotta drama with this crowd much like overly intrusive rural people and these people complain a lot about trivial things, especially the dependa types IMO, they act as though for $14 a day dry/$24 a day powered you should get a Waldorf experience which is outrageous, unreasonable and irrational thinking at best, this is key west where campgrounds cost like ft Meade homesteading costs $1000 month, hotel rooms off base are $300 and up a nite, navy lodge sigsbee (if you can get a room) is $115 during season, $85 off season. These are the same people who got the galley off limits to non active duty types as they stole the silverware, plates and condiments among other things or so the active duty contingency told me? As for the seasonal rotation list not putting names up anymore but using numbers instead, it was explained to me that this was done as people were identifying others names and harassing them by complaint to the office and around base about them, online and vilifying them to others in their cliques so management uses numbers not names now on the rotation list-this is rational/reasonable explanation you'll concur with after you experience a season here. For me, first time and or short stay campers were nothing but gold towards me, all saying goodbyes as we got along well and I enjoyed their conversations well, families of mormons to young wild couples/worldly motorcycle riders on world traveling tours whom I've went partying on Duvall with acting like sailors who've hit port on liberty, great fun with "non homesteaders/non snowbirds" I think this has to do with that stigma of returning people act like they have seniority, especially their dependa wives seemingly? You'll here more homesteaders/returning snowbird veterans wives (dependas) wearing their husbands rank here than anywhere else I've ever been and I stay at a lotta military campgrounds, but like all bases there is that "cart before the horse" mentality/problem of monster dependas thinking they're more important than service members or veterans, another form of stolen valor or people benefiting off the service/merits/privledges of others service. Attitudes of the staff were much better in 2017 than in my 2015 visit, all of the troublesome hosts/office people were gone except two and they had positive attitude ajustments seemingly? The troublesome homesteading never leaving snowbird clique was non existent as place was crowed so I blended in I guess? 2017 I've heard people complain about camp manager in derogatory ways but I've seen her clean bathrooms personally when cleaners didn't come in 2017, again I don't use these as they're over used/crowded,agiain I use the Pool shower at community college in morning & the gym at Truman annex at nite as I go to these places daily. Sadly best tent camping spaces in Hollywood area has worst gossiping and drama created from gossiping seasonal tenters and their Hatfield/McCoy drama if you're wanting to snowbird/homestead, best to camp at overflow in circle or pop up row in rock pile area if you're gonna go long term. (called "pebble beach" now?) There is talk there will be no more using carports as tents, these monstrosities are seen as eye sore by base commander and block views of those units using Hollywood pavilion for unit parties, looks like a row of garages and the crowd doing this seemingly are the worst self appointed sheriffs & most aggressive complainers? Too much infighting with their community IMO. Bye far NASKW is better option/place to snowbird winter away than macdill in Tampa (which is cheaper) as far as weather & ambiance of veterans and their dependas/kids campground IMO, more reasonable/rational crowd especially vacationing short term non snowbird/homesteading people. The hosts at NASKW are friendly/do patrol/are available which keeps a lotta mayhem from occurring unlike at macdill where not even security forces care about rules much less the campground office or especially the lone macdill host who is worthless. Only thing macdill has over NASKW is its Tampa and the exchange/commissary where steak is really cheap, big city lots to do and biggest RV show on the planet along with biggest RV dealer "lazydays" Heard Patrick is pretty good and thinking of snowbirding there next? It has surfing, beach town and isn't as expensive as key west as I'm not a shut in/Rv hybernator like so many key west RV snowbirders whom seemingly hide in their RV S looking out the window spying on their neighbors looking for any reason to call the office and complain about anyone they don't approve of.

I am active duty and vacation with my family at Sigsbee usually twice a year. I made our reservations while stationed in Korea this year. I arrived at midnight. I didn't want to bother the camp host with calling him until a reasonable hour so I figured I would call him around 0900hrs on Saturday morning. The camp host arrived to get me at 0700hrs and show me to my spot on the water. I can't remember his name only that his last name started with an "O". Awesome, super friendly guy. We pulled into a spot on the water and the views were amazing. We noticed lots of upgrades to Sigsbee since our last visit. The first we noticed was the internet. The WIFI was far faster and easier to access than in years past. We did notice many of the people did not come outside during the nice days. We just figured they were in their coaches surfing the internet. The bathrooms were clean and had been remodeled since our last visit. We saw a lady cleaning them daily. There is a laundry facility that costs a couple bucks in quarters to use and was adequate (which is why we didn't give it 5 stars). We went to NAS Boca Chica to use the beach. Anyone who complains about Sigsbee really needs a reality check on life and be a little more appreciative for what Sigsbee and the surrounding area has to offer. This is an amazing place for $24 a night. As for the complainers. I was reading some of the reviews about people coming to Sigsbee for the last 20+ years, it seems like they are taking the place for granted and just like to complain to have something to complain about. We did notice a lot of people who appeared to "holding themselves at bay" in their coaches, meaning they didn't come out much and when they did they seemed moody or sour. Instead of complaining about the grass around your lot, borrow a mower from the camp host and cut it. It would take you a total of 5 minutes. Instead of complaining about trash, help police it up. Instead of complaining about generators, use some of the money your hoarding and invest in solar. Instead of staying logged on to the internet all day long, log off so others can enjoy it. Be part of the solution not the problem. As I head back to Korea I can't help but wish I could spend one more day at Sigsbee.

We stayed at Sigsbee for a week that was part of a three month retirement trip to Florida. We had read the Sigsbee for first-timers as well as the reviews on this website. We knew we would be boondocking during our short stay. We understood the rules even before arriving. We were expecting the worst based on reviews, but as it turned out, we were pleasantly surprised. The office staff was very friendly as were the hosts. Buzz gave me a ride in his cart and showed me all the options for where we could camp. There were plenty of sites from which to choose and we had a lot of open space around our T@B so we weren't swallowed up by the big rigs. The restrooms were well maintained for the most part except for one night when some type of insect was swarming. Our only complaint is the noise and fumes from all the generators in the overflow area. It's too bad that MWR can't reinvest some of the camping fees and run electricity throughout the park, but then I guess they would have to limit the length of your stay similar to the state parks. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay at Sigsbee.

12 winters at Sigsbee and no improvements in the campgrounds. The facilities are way overused due to increased active duty and their families using the laundries and showers. The facilities were not constructed to handle the overload. Yes, it's warm, and the water is lovely, but wait until you have your lovely site ruined by someone who moves in next to you with a loud asphyxiating generator (or two). The rule to have a generator the equivalent of 5db (Honda 2000) has been pushed aside as two generators is now the fad. Key West is entertaining to say the least, but parking downtown is now virtually non-existent and expensive. It's about the money. MWR is now the funding agent for the active duty facilities and CO's "appear" to be in a double bind situation of not wanting to rock the boat on a cash cow. Comments were made about active duty rent funding the campground...the campground made money before active duty used it for housing. I'm not blaming the active duty for taking advantage of the situation...if we were active duty here, we probably would too. The "rock pile" hook up sites were not made for the 40ft plus RV's but I've seen worse at civilian sites. The Sunset Restaurant (please do away with the Lounge name) violates SECNAVINST 5100.13e Smoking Regulations. Although they call it open air, smokers routinely light up next to you while you're trying to eat, and during entertainment. Even if you sit outside in close quarters, second hand smoke is a killer. Common sense has eliminated smoking from open air events in stadiums!! All being said, why do we keep coming back...beats shoveling snow.

The good-this is Key West with lots to do. This park is substandard with most facilities overcrowded and dirty. Sunset lounge is good. People were very nice. Just way overcrowded for the facilities. If you like noise and carbon monoxide you will love the generous generator hours 0700-2300 with extensions granted for late football games. A nice change would be to have a section with limited generator hours. Maybe (Gasp) 0800-2000 or shorter. In 3.5 weeks with nice temps we ran a total of 3.6 generator hours. Spent our money on solar, inverter and batteries. Got tired of the co detector going off during the evening from the fumes of Honda generators. Seems everyone has two since one seems not to do much.

See my review from Feb 16 last year. To add what's going on this year. No improvements on any of last years observations. The new complaint is the waiting lists for full hook ups, some genius decided it would be better (for who?) if we could not tell where we are on the list. What does that person think? that we are all idiots and can't count. So now people stand in front of the boards counting the names to see what number they are. The bathroom cleanliness is worse this year. No cleaning service on weekends or holidays. On MLK weekend there was A TURD FLOATING ON THE MENS ROOM FLOOR. Trashcan was overflowing, shower curtain rod in last stall broken and laying in a flood of water. Sickening and disgusting. Where is the NAS health department? Nobody cuts the grass in any of the areas of dry or hookup camping. If you think it needs cutting you cut it yourself. After coming here since 1994 the only real improvement has been the Gowifi service for internet usage. Everything has got worse and nobody seems to give a damn. Rooster is still keeping people awake in Sigsbee circle starting about 0300 every morning. Management should go visit Pelicans Roost campground in Jacksonville to see how a campground should be run.

I have camped a Trumbo and Sigsbee for several years. In the last 2 years the place has gone down hill. When campers complain, they are threatened with "don't complain too much, because all it would take is a stroke of the pen for the Commanding Officer to close the campground". Many campers fear if the complain, they will be put on the black list and not permitted to return or escorted off the base by security. I agree with earlier post, the roads are getting worse and worse. :<Name with held> tried to tell the campers at Trumbo the she personally spread gravel on the roads. They all insist they spread the gravel and nobody remembers seeing her there.

This is just an old soldier's opinion - here goes. We are back at NASKW for our 3rd year in a row. Love it. The rules seem as straight forward this year as they have been in the past with the addition of a consideration for active service members. I remind my fellow retirees of 2 items: 1. If it wasn't for the active service at all locations the FamCamps more than likely wouldn't exist. Remembering the numerous PCSs we made, I appreciate the active service members staying here with their kids. Great time for mom/dad time before the next deployment. 2. If we don't like the conditions here, we always have the option to try to find a spot in some of the local campgrounds. Price average about $115/day and RVers are in their neighbors living room (very tight quarters). Will we come back - almost positively. PS: we have stayed at numerous FamCamps across the US. Some are better than other but all contain my fellow military family brothers and sister that have always felt like family. And thanks to www.MilitaryCampground.us for a great service. Added a pic of sunset from Sunset Lounge.

After reading UH1-Vietnam's comment I felt I had to write this one. We have been coming to Key West for several years and have always enjoyed it and are enjoying it this year. Yes, the bathroom's could be cleaner, but when you have a couple of hundred campers using them - Well? The tent camping has been closed at Sigsbee Circle across from the marina. It flooded enough during full moon periods at high tides and once completely flooded so the Base Cdr closed them for safety reasons. A replacement tent site has been established behind the pavilion I think is a nice spot. Get your facts straight. Firebase4 commented earlier that the front row of the Rockpile and Hollywood were reserved for Active Duty. I walked through there yesterday and there were only TWO sites reserved for Active Duty.

Agree with below (the next one down) comments. Bathrooms were dirty. Over all looked like much needed weed eating, grass cutting, liter pick up, fixing up etc is needed. Seems to have gone down in the up keep since last year and other years back. Tent campers: they closed the tent area down the road from NEX. Guess it is called Arthur Street area. Such a shame. Word is it was closed cause of flooding. Been that way for years. All of the tent sites did not flood. True reason may be the big rig RVs complained about tents, and their POVs, blocking their view (RVers view). I heard such complaints few years ago. So, suspect they got rid of the tenters to pacify the RVs. Shame. Tent campers have just as much right to camp here. Host are host. Few good ones there and a few you don't even want to meet or deal with. Won't mention names. But sure you know who they are. Trumbo is still good place to dry camp. Area by the inlet is fixed up nice. That should be the tent area. Go figure. Guards back on the gate. Good news. Laundry room ran by NEX is still dirty, trashy and dirty. What else is new. For the money they take in each year off RVers you would think much more could be done here. Wrong.

Concur with previous comments on how the system is being played by many active duty buying rigs on the government, but this is not a new problem with the substandard housing rules and how the housing allowances are allocated. We dry camped for two days prior to placement in a power site, but before we hooked up I used a weed eater and lawnmower to clean up the site since it does not look like there has been any cleanup done in months. The maintenance of the park is an issue that could be fixed by mowing and weed eaters. The camp hosts were exceptional, Jeff and Mo helped us a lot and especially on the weekend when the office is closed. Wifi good in most sites, but we did not try at Trumbo annex.
