Western NY to Key West

Looking for suggestions for beach camping on our vaca-Western NY-Key West. Would love to be ON the beach. Thank you in advance.

Beverly Beach Camptown (I think that's the name) in Florida is on a sea wall facing the beach. Expensive, but looks nice.

Eddie, I've stayed at Beverly Beach and it' nice but not fancy and right on the beach. On the Gulf side try the Red Coconut in Fort Myers Beach - really pricey, but the spots on the beach are amazing. Be aware that you need to book a year in advance if you want to be "on" the beach, not near the beach. Peak season is from December to April, so plan ahead.

A couple of nice spots; Jetty Park in Cape Canaveral. In the Keys there are are some on the water on the Atlantic side and the Gulf side. In Marathon, there is Jolly Roger Travel Park. You can park right on the seawall. There is also Curry Hammock State Park about 2 miles from Jolly Roger. It is Atlantic side with ocean sites available. And my favorite is Bluewater Key Resort. Pricey, but exclusive. Every site has a tiki and is very private, separated by tropical foilage. The have some on the Bay side or canal side. BTW, don't expect surf in the keys unless you are there during a hurricanne! :-) The keys are our favorite getaways every chance we get.

Second Sugarloaf Key. BTW, be careful of small independent parks down in the Keys. Not that they are dangerous but more than one is clothing optional' during the summer.

Bahia Honda State Park is our first choice, but is next to impossible to get a site. Sugarloaf KOA is also nice. We'd go back to either of the two.
