After the winter that seemed like it would never end, who doesn’t want to enjoy some warm—no make that HOT—weather. Shed the three layers on insulated clothing and head out for some sun, surf, and green grass! One of the tremendous benefits of owning a Keystone RV is that you can get up and go to find the seasons. Below are 10 campgrounds known for warm temps, beautiful scenery, and unlimited opportunities for you and your family. Take a look at what they have to offer.
Come spend the night in an American icon while you enjoy the pleasures of the Florida Keys at the Sugarloaf Key/Key West KOA! Just a short stroll to the beach, or a short drive to Key West! Set between the crystal clear Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, Sugarloaf Key/Key West KOA is a true beachfront resort. You'll find amenities and activities designed to please everyone in the family, such as sunset cruises in the Gulf, local fishing and beachside fun at the campground's own water haven.
Dine under swaying palm trees and sip frozen margaritas on the waterfront veranda of the campground's pub. Even your family pet will have fun at the pet playground specifically designed for them. Ever-appealing Key West lies just 14 miles south. Hop on the campground's shuttle to this funky and historic end of the road, dubbed "the Conch Republic." Walk the narrow streets showcasing Conch architecture-breezy wood houses with lush tropical gardens-once home to pirates, treasure hunters, sailors, novelists like Hemingway and songwriters like Buffett. End the day with a sunset at Mallory Pier.
This tropical vacation campground features its own palm-fringed nine-hole golf course, driving range and putting green. Play tennis on four courts. Flex your muscles at the fitness center, hike the Big O trail or soak in a pool: one for families, another for kids and a third for adults only.
Boating and fishing on Lake Okeechobee are a lure-and so is the campground's social calendar filled with parades and parties. Enjoy the seasonal holiday celebrations, from Mardi Gras festivities to a Christmas decorating contest. Swap fish stories over a cold one at the Shanty Lounge, or join a Full Moon Bike Ride.
Big-rig friendly RV sites, cabin lodging and tent campsites are available, as well as golf cart rentals. Whether you’re a snowbird heading south for the winter, vacationing with your family, or looking for that perfect place for a reunion or group event, camp at Okeechobee KOA, where every day is special in paradise.
