Featuring a cluster of seven islands, each unique in its own way, Dry Tortugas National Park is an amazing destination for water-related recreation and nature observation. Located about 70 miles west of Key West, Florida, this 100 sq. mile remote national park is only accessible by boats or seaplane, meaning the adventure begins from the journey to the park.
Home to the magnificent Fort Jefferson, Dry Tortugas National Park offers opportunities to enjoy many different recreational activities. You can swim in the park’s waters or snorkel to points where you’ll see beautiful coral reefs, seagrasses and shipwrecks. Treasure hunting is also an option at the park as geocaches are distributed across the islands. Boating also offers you the chance to explore the islands and move seamlessly between them. Moreover, the beautiful wildlife, birds, and fishes also create their own opportunities. Rangers are also available in the park to guide visitors and campers on tours of the islands’ features.
There are no RV campsites in Dry Tortugas National Park as only primitive campsites are available. A KOA campground that offers RV camping options with full hookups is available 14 miles east of Key West.
