RVing to Road’s End, Key West Lower Keys, Florida

For RVers, the Road is always endless. 🙂

That is why, RVing at Road’s End in Florida- At Key West is surely a bucket list destination for most RVers

Key West

Being the best tropical hideaway, for Bob Rountree, a veteran RVer, RVing at Road’s End in Key West in 70’s were the ‘clandestine days’. Today, if you park along the road, the authorities will not only stare at you, but also handcuff you as well! 😮

He elaborates,

“When I first moved to Florida way back in the ’70s, we would camp in the woods across from Smathers Beach in Key West.  In fact, it wasn’t difficult to find places to pitch a tent or roll out a sleeping bag anywhere in the Keys.  “The authorities” would usually look the other way, unless you looked like trouble. Alas, times have changed, and so we go with the times”.

As there is no camping in Key West, the only option for an RVer is to choose the right RV park that is accommodating. Nevertheless, this renowned island of Florida Keys has some stellar attractions like RV Beach Camp. Some of our favorite places to go around the Lower Keys are:

  • Long Key State Park:
    With a shallow 100 Yard beach, kayaking is ideal here. Look at the amazing spiraling roads 😮
