Biscayne NP Offering Free Camping During the Summer Months

By: Kevin Mims


Got a boat and a hardy soul? Well then, you're in luck.

This summer, Biscayne National Park is offering free camping on Boca Chita and Elliott Keys, providing you have your own transportation and don't mind the possibility of a few bugs. Well, maybe a lot of bugs, depending on conditions.

But wait! Think about it for a second before you click away, never to think about the chance again. You get the opportunity to camp or dock your boat for free on Elliott or Boca Chita Keys, two incredibly beautiful places that are well worth the visit.

If the bugs get bad (we are talking about mosquitoes and no-see-ums here), just hop in your boat or zip up your tent during those times. Needless to say, you should bring some insect spray just in case. 

Stays are limited to 14 days, so you can't just set up there and never leave if the bugs aren't bad. Again, if you are looking to escape for a little while, this may just be the place. Get the full details by visiting
