Florida Keys. No reservations...
We had made camping reservations for a few weeks in the Florida Keys but we had to postpone our trip and cancel everything. Health problems having been resolved, we are now headed to the Keys and should be there in about 10 days, with no reservations. Any tips? Boondocking?
Many thanks.

Glad things worked out so you can resume your travels.

It probably wouldn't hurt to use what web access you can get to try to find some reservations in the next 10 days so you won't get down there and get stuck or disappointed. Depending on where you want to be in the Keys, it can be a looooong ride out if you don't find anything; and you probably want to spend your time enjoying the area instead of driving all day just trying to find someplace to stay.

Have a look at the State Parks... They do book up well in advance, but check anyway in case of cancellations, etc. (Bahia Honda was our favorite)

Safe travels.

I agree with Oldbears. You are best going to the Keys with reservations. Please do not take your RV into Key West itself. Camping is located on the key prior to Key West and the roads are tight and crowded. Also, you will not find any parking for an RV in Key West. We stayed at Boyds Campground, which was fine. We stayed at Grassy Key RV resort on Marathon Key, which was absolutely beautiful. There are many private and state park options. I would get on the phone and/or the internet and get working to string 10 days of reservations together, if you can.
