Just a few updates. Our last visit was in 2010 and some things have changed. The common areas and empty sites on Rock pile and Hollywood are not being mowed or maintained by the base or hosts and looks very bad. (The hosts work hard/long hours and they should not be responsible for the mowing in my opinion). The grass and weeds are overgrown along the waterfront and in empty spaces. Campers are responsible for mowing and weed eating their own sites using provided mower and weed eater at camp host site (and I believe this is reasonable). In addition trash and even a few piles of trash are evident across many areas of Sigsbee. The base needs to step up the maintenance as it now looks very bad and reflects poorly. I hope the new fiscal year will improve the maintenance and appearance. New artificial turf soccer/football area, and baseball area nearly ready to open, along with a running track. Meanwhile over at the Coast Guard station (Trumbo) where many like to dry camp through the winter, the pedestrian gate by the coast guard cutters is now permanently closed. The entire last drive in gate where you enter into the cutter area is off limits to retirees and non essential personnel. I spoke with a coast guard officer and this is due to intell chatter, and the actions of a few retirees who boarded a cutter without escort to "look around". This area will remain off limits throughout the 2015/2016 prime season, and probably permanently. This is still a great value for the Keys, and we look forward to the winter season.

January 2015. My husband and I just came back from key west. The full hook up sites on sigbee is 5 weeks. No big deal for us but just incase you need to know. They have more people this year so they put us on Trumbo Point in a field. We had s feeling we would be dry camping and signed a sheet saying that we would be willing to move of needed. The lady said since we would only be 4 days we shouldn't have to. Well the next day a note on the door to move to another site at 10am. I'm glad I didn't make plans that morning for we detached the 5th wheel and set up. So we broke down and moved to the overflow. Generators are allowed 7 am to 11pm. Trumbo Point is a great location. Walk to everything or ride bikes. The gate is guarded so remember your ID. Key west is beautiful. Also go to Truman annex next to fort Zachary of you want to see the sunset without so many people around. There is a private beach.

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.

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.

Always good to be back. Seems rule book does not apply to some. Rigs nasty, grass knee high, crap all around. Ready to move to Trumbo where campers know how to keep things nice and neat.

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.

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.
Let me start by saying that I have never had a better time in any RV park anywhere, civilian or military. Maybe it's just the type of people that are drawn to Key West or maybe that Key West makes everyone calm, happy and laid back. Everyone was friendly and happy to be spending another day in paradise. We were there before the mobs hit and rotation began so we enjoyed 2 weeks in a waterfront site. Met some great people and enjoyed watching sunset every night and then sitting out under the stars. At $23 per night this was an exceptional value. I only have one pretty significant complaint. The bathrooms and showers were disgustingly filthy. I was lucky enough to have my own onboard facilities but some of the smaller campers who had to use the showers told me that they cleaned them themselves before they used them each day. When I say filthy I mean that the same dirt on the floor and hair on the sink and the cobwebs in the toilet stalls that were there when I arrived were still there when I left. The toilet seats were broken and slid around when you sat down. I'm baffled by this since everyone in the office and the camp hosts were so friendly and efficient. Did they not notice this? Is everyone just used to this level of dirt? It's really sad.
Our first time from CA to FL. Loved Sigsbee, we felt it was well run. Host of duty would be glad to anything they could to help you. We enjoyed the dry camp more then the rock pile (full hookup)felt like more room. The important thing I want to pass on to you is....When you sign in ask about getting a pass for your car. We left the base and could not return without a pass. Thanks to all the staff we had a great time and fell in love with FL.

Arrived and had no idea where to go to sign in - office is not on campsite. Off-duty host tracked me down and made a phone call - On-duty host showed up immediately with a smile and took care of us. No full hook-up sites were available, so she put us into dry-camping in the first row off the water. Stayed for eight days and never wanted to move due to the view. Ran across numerous folks that had been there for six months or more - you would never have guessed it by the look of their campsites. We did not have a reservation, but according to the host they have had up to 500 rigs in the various campgrounds at one time - would not hesitate to go without a reservation again. Overall a great campsite, at a great location, with a VERY pleasant, courteous and competent staff.
