Question about key west was created by Thornhammer
All though I'm Retired military and camp some we don't do FT yet but are wanting to. Got question about Key West do they have public restroom/showers? How do people get gas or propane for your RV? I under stand they have central water and sewer dump so a portable water tank and a blue boy would be good to have. Any thing else I might need or could use please let me know

We have stayed at Trumbo which is near downtown and they have a laundry and showers. It is all dry camping so you need to have a generator but they have a dump station and water available. I have not stayed at Sigsbee and so cannot comment on what facilities they have.

I wrote an article on this that is on this website Key West for Newbies

Its a bit dated but bet Kokomo will chime in. Yes on showers, toilets, laundry rooms etc. at Sigsbee. Water and dump station in the CG. Blue Boy and ater bladder handy if you don't want to move the rig. For propoane, you sign up at the office and they come around once a week. For gas, there is a PX gas station on base.

in your write up you state that gens must be turned off from 2300-0700. what about air conditioners to cool your RV it there a turn off time for them?

At Sigsbee, there are 3 public shower / restroom / laundry facilities. Two are closer to the full hook-up and tents sites. The other is in the area known as the "Circle" and is central to the dry camping and some full hook-ups. The restrooms and sink are a bit crowed in the morning, but after the AM rush; usually open.

The "Quiet Time" is from 11PM until 7AM. This is also the no generator hours. I've never heard anyone run an AC off of the batteries but it is "Quiet Time" so you could be open to a complaint. AC during generator hours no problem. Also, AC can be run anytime you are in full hook-up.

Gasoline and Diesel are here on Base. Propane can be delivered or obtained a few miles out of town on Stock Island.

If you have a big or unusually loud portable generator, there are certain noise standards being phased in. Honda 2000's are within the acceptable levels. The Office can provide the current db levels.

Hope this helps!

Kokomo answered this. Just will add that heat at night was sometimes a problem since you can't run an AC. It doesn't get all that hot, just still sometimes. Fan(s) will help tremendously.

Of course it is 15 where I'm at now so wish Roger would send some of that heat here.

during the Jan-Mar time frame, do you really need AC at night. or can you just get by with the windows open. i know our weather is not normal anymore so it is hard to predict. also, i have been told even with the big generator on the motorhomes most still have a portable one to run small items during the day time. which makes sense, why run the 12K for just a few things. just trrying to do some down range planning for next year.

thanks

We are heading down to KW next week. I have a friend there right now and they spent a few days in the Trumbo overflow before being offered space on the Sigsbee overflow area. Apparently Sigsbee is very, very crowded at this time. We stayed there a few years ago for 4 days in February and found absolutely NO need for air conditioning. Sunny and warm days and pleasantly cool nights. I have a generator and only used it in the evenings to watch a video. Don't count on any worthwhile TV reception there unless you are satellite equipped. Water / dump nearby and laundry and bath house also handy.

So, don't take my space. I'll be there soon. ENJOY
