23 RV Parks in the Florida Keys – RV-N-Style

23 RV Parks in the Florida Keys

Elmar RV Resort

How many RV parks are there in the Florida Keys? Until I began researching, I had no idea that there are 23 RV Parks in the Florida Keys! Not all of them can accommodate large Class A RVs like ours, but at least 14 of them can and they are spread out throughout the 113-mile long island chain.

23 RV Parks in the Florida Keys

Read on to find out about all the RV Parks located in the Florida Keys and begin planning your next RV adventure to the islands of the Sunshine State.
There are 23 RV Parks spread out through the Florida Keys. The islands are split into 3 regions- the Upper Keys (closest to Miami), the Middle Keys (about halfway down to Key West) and the Lower Keys (Key West area which is as far south in the US as you can go).

Driving Tips for Finding Places in the Keys- What Are Mile Markers?

There is only one road in and out of the Florida Keys – US 1 and it ends at the southernmost point of the United States in Key West. There are mile marker signs on the side of the road counting the miles down as you drive south beginning at mile marker 112 in the Upper Keys (Key Largo), and ending in zero in Key West. Directions will often include the mile marker and whether a property is ocean-side (on your left as you drive south) or bay-side (on your right as you drive south).

5 RV Parks in the Upper Keys

For those RVers that want to visit the islands but don’t want be too far from the mainland of Miami, the Upper Keys is an excellent option.

Staying at an RV Park in the Upper Keys gives you some options that staying at a park further south does not. The Upper Keys have the same great world-class diving and fishing like the other Keys, and a visit to the Everglades is then only an hour away making it an easy day trip.

The entire resort is brand new with a great heated pool and spa that overlooks Florida Bay. There are a few sites located right on the bay, but be sure to book well in advance.

6 RV Parks in the Middle Keys

Next, as you head south toward Key West are the Middle Keys (mile marker 71-40). In addition to all the great fishing and diving like the Upper Keys offer, the Middle Keys also have some unique things to do. The Turtle Hospital (where you can learn about the sea turtles) and the Dolphin Research Center (you can swim with dolphins here!) are located in the Middle Keys.

Another cool thing to do is to hike or bike the Old Seven Mile Bridge. The Middle Keys and Marathon Key are often considered the heart of the Keys, and the vibe here is more relaxed and laid back.

Big Pine Key, FL 33043
Mile Marker 36.5, Oceanside

Every State Park in the Florida Keys offers something unique and spectacular for visitors, and Bahia Honda is no exception. During the day the warm, crystal-clear sapphire waters of the Atlantic Ocean are a delight to swim in, but once the sun goes down it just gets better at night at Bahia Honda!

Most people don’t know that some of the very best stargazing happens here because Bahia Honda is the darkest location for stargazing in the Florida Keys. Twice a month Bahia Honda State Park hosts two stargazing programs on Friday and Saturday nights. On Fridays, the Florida Keys Astronomy Club sets up telescopes for campers to use. The Saturday night programs are led by a park ranger to the top of the Old Bahia Honda Bridge for viewing with the naked eye.

Bahia Honda is big rig friendly and is very desirable but has limited space, so plan far in advance to get in (up to 11 months) or maybe you will get lucky and find a cancellation.

This is a very special and unique RV experience and program schedules vary based on the moon phase, generally occurring nearest the new moon and the 1st quarter moon.

Call 305-872-2353 for dates and times. Only overnight guests are eligible for these programs.
