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.

Important update for those with reservations (or plans) to Dry Camp at NASKW Campgrounds (Sigsbee and Trumbo Point), Key West FL, this winter (Oct 2021 - Apr 2022). Due to the significant uptick in Covid19 cases in Florida, management has reduced the availability of dry camping spaces for this winter season dramatically (only 25% of dry camping sites will be available for use). This necessitated cancelling a number of existing dry camping reservations that had already been made over the last few months. It's my understanding this reduction in dry camping availability was necessary to meet the social distancing requirements for the communal bath houses. It's also my understanding that Full Hook-Up (FHU) sites will not be affected and should have 100% availability. If you made reservations to dry camp at Sigsbee or Trumbo Point during the last few months you may want to call the NASKW campground office at (305) 293-4432/3 to reconfirm your reservation.

We absolutely loved our stay at Sigsbee! We've been anxiously awaiting the reopening post-pandemic and are so excited to hear they are taking reservations again 6/1/2021. We'll be on the line making our winter reservations! Retirees can reserve sites up to 6 months in advance. Please note there have been some major changes posted from the command this week. Maximum stay is now 3 months and there is so more "shuffle." Instead you make reservations for FHU or dry camping. We hope to get FHU, but we loved our stay there so much, we're willing to dry camp for 3 months as well. The great thing is they have a nice large dump station with two lanes and plenty of potable water stations. Sigsbee is basically a housing annex and it has a small exchange and commissary that we found to be adequate for our needs. If you want to receive mail you have to pay for a mailbox at the exchange. It was a reasonable fee though. Most importantly, bring your bikes! We rode our bikes all over Key West. We have a fifth wheel and dually pick up. It was so nice to leave the truck on base and ride the bikes everywhere.

We camped here in our tent for a week. It was the end of May so it was hot. I commend staff, security, exchange, etc. personnel for their hospitality and professionalism. This made us feel welcomed during our stay. We stayed in spot T6 which was level and on the waterfront. I probably shouldn't complain but a larger, grassy spot for tenters would be appreciated.

Effect February 1, 2020 this was a major change in the way the campground operates. In the future you will NOT be rotating to full hooks from dry camping; you will be in one or the other--only! Secondly, after this season you will only be allowed to stay in this campground for 90 days and then you have to leave for at least 60 days. Just make sure you understand the new rules that just went into affect.

RVers are still coming to this campground NOT KNOWING that they will be in dry camping at the beginning of their stay. Depending on the time of year it could be several weeks or longer before you get a full hook up!!!!!!! CAMPERS NEED TO HAVE A GENERATOR/SOLAR TO OPERATE THEIR SYSTEMS at the start of their stay. YOU ROTATE OUT OF FULL HOOK UPS AFTER 14 DAYS, regardless of who you are!

The campground at Sigsbee has so much potential...but it fails on a few levels. First the date I entered is an old date I am actually writing this in 2019 because I had to put in a date. I cannot stay at the campground although I would love to, because I don’t own an RV...the campground is very much an RV preference Campground. Those of us who cannot afford an RV or cannot have one for other reasons are relegated to tent camping...but the Sigbee campground limits the spaces for tents to just a few spaces, on a rocky, grassless, dirt edge right on a roadway ....why can’t a grassy section of the actual campground be set aside for tent campers?? Why must we be treated like second class citizens because we can’t afford an RV??? The Navy is all about equality And fairness...but this is not equality or fairness...I will be contacting the Commanding officer of the base...

Been camping at the NASKW (Sigsbee) RV Campgrounds for a number of years. We typically stay 2-4 weeks. Our latest stay was in Oct 2019. A few updates. There were a bit more full hook-ups available this year vs. the last two years. Still a number of homesteaders. One welcome change: they've hired contractors to cut the grass. Years past, each camper was responsible for cutting the grass at their respective RV site. Another change, no more FHU to FHU site moves/changes allowed. Only dry camping to FHU or vice versa. Choose carefully when you arrive. They've reduced the number of dry camping sites at Trumbo Point (only open during the Oct-Apr high-season). I'd guess-estimate a 30% reduction. A number of sites adjacent to the Coast Guard station were turned into vehicle/RV/boat storage. Also, several rows of sites next to the helicopter pad were taken out of service due to RV's being damaged by helicopter rotor wash. Even before this site reduction, Trumbo Point was typically at capacity from Dec-Feb. This site reduction is going to make availability even more difficult going forward. If you have plans to spend the winter at NASKW, I'd suggest making reservations at navygetaway.com or calling ahead to check on availability before heading down the Keys. Dry camping and FHU rates (for Active Duty/Retired) remain the same as last year at $17 and $27, respectively. On another topic, a previous reviewer was very critical of the NASKW campgrounds (no beaches and limited space). I believe they would have been disappointed staying anywhere in the Florida Keys. First, there are no real "beaches" in the Florida Keys (only small, man-made snip-its of non-indigenous sand). Secondly, EVERYTHING in the Florida Keys (especially the lower Keys) is "crunched" together--lol (land is scarce and very expensive)! IMO, The NASKW RV Campgrounds continue to offer significant value and convenience. Public RV campgrounds in the Florida Keys can easily run more than a $100 a night. The Florida State Park RV campgrounds in the Florida Keys do offer substantial value and ambiance at $30-$40 a night; unfortunately, they're typically booked up to a year (or more) in advance. Safe travels! Be safe!

This review was left by T.M. using the Directory software: This campground looks like a crap hole. RVs crunched together and some look disabled and show signs of having been parked for a long time. Beach is not a beach, no sand and large rocks that were put there to keep the shore from washing away. They call it a beach because they put 3 picnic tables at the rock’s edge. We had reservation for 5 nights but we were so disappointed that we only stated one night. View of the gulf is amazing but you can get that at a state park. This stop had so much potential and needless to say we traveled many miles only to be extremely disappointed. On the flip side, the park lady on duty was very friendly and accommodating.

We have been coming here for many years now to escape the winters at home. We really love being here, and have made life long new friends in the process. There is no other camp ground we have ever been to that almost everyone is like family. Sadly though, since Irma last year, and MWR initiating the reservation system, things are rapidly changing. The Gateway reservation system has been a real mess, and many people that tried to get reservations this year were told that nothing was available and the camp was full. Well that was never true because the camp never totally filled, and though it came close in February for only a couple of weeks, they had spaces available all winter, yet many were turned away because Gateway reported the camp being full. Also we had many new 1st time NASKW campers here that were told by Gateway they would be able to go right into hook up sites when they arrived. This was another not true story. They were shocked when they arrived and had to spend three weeks or longer in dry camp working their way up the rotation list to be able to get their 14 day limit on full hook up sites. Those of us who come every year understand the rotation policy, but the new folks in most cases did not come prepared to be able to make it for weeks in dry camp. Many had no generators or the type of items that make living in a dry camp possible. The rumors are running rampant about the future of this camp. We are now hearing that for the next winter season the rates are going to take a huge jump, and that rotations are not going to happen any more. This may sound good to some, but if you think about it, and someone arrives in December and gets a site with no rotations, he will have it all season. With the limited number of full hook up sites it will keep hundreds of others out of luck. I don't pretend to have all the answers, but I just want folks that are considering Sigsbee for the winter of 2019 season to check things out before you come down. There is a very good chance that it will not be as it has been in the past. The past increases have been small at a dollar or two a day more than previous years. Now the powers to be are talking about huge increases of possibly double what the current rates are per day. And if the rumor is true about the rotations being ended, that will mean that the normal 200 plus rigs they have in dry camp working their way up the rotation list will have to stay in dry camp all winter, and believe me that can get pretty uncomfortable for sleeping at night. This is just a wake up call for everyone to watch for, as I said at the start, we do love it here. It is just that when you know you will get 2 weeks of hook ups every few weeks or so it makes it easier to take. Four or five months of dry camp is a totally different story. Anyway be sure to check things out thouroughly before coming down thinking things are as usual.

The overall campground experience was excellent. The site(s) are easy too get to; for Sigsbee straight down overseas highway right on Roosevelt and right on Sigsbee Rd; for Trumbo continue on Roosevelt Rd then right on Palm Ave and right on Trumbo Rd. The location I prefer is Trumbo Annex because of its close proximity to downtown Key West. The Trumbo site has decent facilities, showers, bathrooms and an Olympic size swimming pool also two dump stations with fresh water. The Trumbo site is located about five minutes from the main check-in site Sigsbee. The reservation process is through dodlodging.net and then best managed locally through Sigsbee office (bldg. V-4113 just after Gas station on the left).

Reservations in advance now MANDATORY. Do NOT arrive without reservations in advance. Contractor type generators will not pass new decibel restrictions of 74 db at 10 feet. Either bring quiet RV type portable generator or expect to be told not to run it or being asked to leave. Bring enough power cord to meet new mandate of all portable generators MUST be placed front center of the RV (no longer optional placement). When you arrive you will be given a pamphlet of the on board NASKW rules - PLEASE actually read it. Busy season is here. With over 70 in dry camp on Sigsbee as of today, at this time expect no more than 2 weeks in full hook up and at LEAST 2 weeks in dry camp (up to 6 weeks as it gets even busier). Upon arrival you will start in dry camp. Please watch your speeds in the campgrounds - (5 mph). Lot's of kids here this year.

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
