Due to a hard right turn onto Kennedy Blvd., I suggest using the alternate route. ---- ALTERNATE ROUTE: Follow US 1 South until the intersection where you have to either turn right to continue on US 1 South (Roosevelt) or turn left on A1A South. Turn left on A1A S and go to the first traffic light and turn right on Flagler Ave. Go about 1.25 miles on Flagler and at the first traffic light, turn right on Kennedy. Stay on Kennedy and it will end at the Sigsbee Gate. Once past the gate, go another 0.4 miles to Sigsbee Rd. and turn right onto Sigsbee. Follow Sigsbee approx 0. 5 miles and turn left to campground office. ---- NORMAL ROUTE: Follow US 1 South where US 1 joins Roosevelt Blvd. Turn right onto Roosevelt Blvd. Travel approx 1.2 miles to Kennedy Blvd. (just past the Ibis Bay Resort). Turn right onto Kennedy Blvd. And go through base gate. Follow Kennedy approx 0.4 miles to Sigsbee Rd. and turn right onto Sigsbee. Follow Sigsbee approx 0. 5 miles and turn left to campground office.

This was my first visit to this campground, and not being familiar with the way things work was might a shock. Our host was a individual named "Jeff". Jeff was very helpful and made us feel like family. He explain how things worked and guided us to our overflow spot and said that we would be here for about two days with no kind of service,known as dry camping. It was hotter than you can imagine, thank god I had gas and a tank of water. Water is provided up the street. Jeff was good enough to get us a new spot the next day in the full service part of the camp. Being a heart patience and a 100% disabled veteran I really needed the full service site. My wife and I only came down for a few days for my birthday,and to visit the area,without the full service there was no way we could have stayed. During my short stay I noticed a lot of active duty personnel living there. I do not have a problem with active duty people having priority. What I have a problem with they buy these cheap trailers move in not knowing a thing about rving and moving all their friends and families in and collecting BAQ. Anyways that all I'm saying about that. Overall we had a great time, enjoyed having Jeff as our host. I will come back when it is a more cool. Already looking forward to the visit,thanks again and a special thanks to Jeff, Ray Wyatt retired USN

May 1 - Nov 1, 2015 and Feb 2 - Apr 3, 2017

My 2015 stay here was off season (may thru oct) as I moved off my sailboat in marathon fla to live ashore for awhile which turned into six months as I moved back on my boat after fantasy fest 2015, When I got there May 1st 2015 place was emptying or almost at off season population empty (there was no rotation) I seemingly became the outcast/object of aggression by the longtime local year round clique who gossiped about me to no end. It got so bad even the manager lady and husband were sassing off to me at the dead as a graveyard sunset lounge before the campground manager realized I was the victim of warrentless harassment as the local clique was bored and using me as a topic of gossip/conversation, vilifying me for anything and everything. Back then they let tent camping go on at the circle on the water like at Hollywood tenting area which I loved, I'd paddleboard everyday, to friends boats at garrison bight mooring field, cow key channel lazy dog and ajoining bar etc even doing the loop around key west 12.5 miles. Gossip was so bad, I went home with a woman from the bar on duval which turned into a multiple day fling at her McMansion in sugarloaf and the manager lady personally called me asking if I was ok saying she was concerned as no one had seen me for a few days??? This is a good example how intrusive/phony people get here... Facilities are fair for what you're paying IMO, beach patio @ Truman annex is great place to take afternoon nap on a hot day/enjoy some air conditioning and offers beer for $1.50 can. I used showers at college pool in morning after my swim and gym over at Truman annex gym vs the campground which is why I don't see a problem with campground showers? Laundry is best done weekday nites later the better, like after midnight and especially before 7am when dependas hijack the laundry rooms with their gloomy demeaners all day? Powerboat marina on sigsbee is best place to buy ice, if you bring a boat great place to launch/trailer up, buy bait etc. Boca Chica deep water marina has better bar, navigators with its own swimming area though sound of freedom (jet noise) is worse. Lap swimming is offered for free at trumbo but it's too loud with screaming kids, so I go to community college where serious lap swimmers swim for $50 month unlimited or $5 day-no lounging/tanning unlike trumbo but best sunbathing is higgs or southernmost or state park. If you're living aboard a boat wanting to come ashore best to come ashore near Hollywood bathhouse and tie off dink on rocks as exchange/commissary is 400 yards and closest landing option; place signage in dink explaining you're military and going to exchange as drama queens of the snowbird season clique will certainly call master at arms like you're an illegal invader, again, too many self appointed sheriffs here. After living here before, I don't get friendly or take interest with long term/homesteading/returning campers anymore, lotta drama with this crowd much like overly intrusive rural people and these people complain a lot about trivial things, especially the dependa types IMO, they act as though for $14 a day dry/$24 a day powered you should get a Waldorf experience which is outrageous, unreasonable and irrational thinking at best, this is key west where campgrounds cost like ft Meade homesteading costs $1000 month, hotel rooms off base are $300 and up a nite, navy lodge sigsbee (if you can get a room) is $115 during season, $85 off season. These are the same people who got the galley off limits to non active duty types as they stole the silverware, plates and condiments among other things or so the active duty contingency told me? As for the seasonal rotation list not putting names up anymore but using numbers instead, it was explained to me that this was done as people were identifying others names and harassing them by complaint to the office and around base about them, online and vilifying them to others in their cliques so management uses numbers not names now on the rotation list-this is rational/reasonable explanation you'll concur with after you experience a season here. For me, first time and or short stay campers were nothing but gold towards me, all saying goodbyes as we got along well and I enjoyed their conversations well, families of mormons to young wild couples/worldly motorcycle riders on world traveling tours whom I've went partying on Duvall with acting like sailors who've hit port on liberty, great fun with "non homesteaders/non snowbirds" I think this has to do with that stigma of returning people act like they have seniority, especially their dependa wives seemingly? You'll here more homesteaders/returning snowbird veterans wives (dependas) wearing their husbands rank here than anywhere else I've ever been and I stay at a lotta military campgrounds, but like all bases there is that "cart before the horse" mentality/problem of monster dependas thinking they're more important than service members or veterans, another form of stolen valor or people benefiting off the service/merits/privledges of others service. Attitudes of the staff were much better in 2017 than in my 2015 visit, all of the troublesome hosts/office people were gone except two and they had positive attitude ajustments seemingly? The troublesome homesteading never leaving snowbird clique was non existent as place was crowed so I blended in I guess? 2017 I've heard people complain about camp manager in derogatory ways but I've seen her clean bathrooms personally when cleaners didn't come in 2017, again I don't use these as they're over used/crowded,agiain I use the Pool shower at community college in morning & the gym at Truman annex at nite as I go to these places daily. Sadly best tent camping spaces in Hollywood area has worst gossiping and drama created from gossiping seasonal tenters and their Hatfield/McCoy drama if you're wanting to snowbird/homestead, best to camp at overflow in circle or pop up row in rock pile area if you're gonna go long term. (called "pebble beach" now?) There is talk there will be no more using carports as tents, these monstrosities are seen as eye sore by base commander and block views of those units using Hollywood pavilion for unit parties, looks like a row of garages and the crowd doing this seemingly are the worst self appointed sheriffs & most aggressive complainers? Too much infighting with their community IMO. Bye far NASKW is better option/place to snowbird winter away than macdill in Tampa (which is cheaper) as far as weather & ambiance of veterans and their dependas/kids campground IMO, more reasonable/rational crowd especially vacationing short term non snowbird/homesteading people. The hosts at NASKW are friendly/do patrol/are available which keeps a lotta mayhem from occurring unlike at macdill where not even security forces care about rules much less the campground office or especially the lone macdill host who is worthless. Only thing macdill has over NASKW is its Tampa and the exchange/commissary where steak is really cheap, big city lots to do and biggest RV show on the planet along with biggest RV dealer "lazydays" Heard Patrick is pretty good and thinking of snowbirding there next? It has surfing, beach town and isn't as expensive as key west as I'm not a shut in/Rv hybernator like so many key west RV snowbirders whom seemingly hide in their RV S looking out the window spying on their neighbors looking for any reason to call the office and complain about anyone they don't approve of.

I am active duty and vacation with my family at Sigsbee usually twice a year. I made our reservations while stationed in Korea this year. I arrived at midnight. I didn't want to bother the camp host with calling him until a reasonable hour so I figured I would call him around 0900hrs on Saturday morning. The camp host arrived to get me at 0700hrs and show me to my spot on the water. I can't remember his name only that his last name started with an "O". Awesome, super friendly guy. We pulled into a spot on the water and the views were amazing. We noticed lots of upgrades to Sigsbee since our last visit. The first we noticed was the internet. The WIFI was far faster and easier to access than in years past. We did notice many of the people did not come outside during the nice days. We just figured they were in their coaches surfing the internet. The bathrooms were clean and had been remodeled since our last visit. We saw a lady cleaning them daily. There is a laundry facility that costs a couple bucks in quarters to use and was adequate (which is why we didn't give it 5 stars). We went to NAS Boca Chica to use the beach. Anyone who complains about Sigsbee really needs a reality check on life and be a little more appreciative for what Sigsbee and the surrounding area has to offer. This is an amazing place for $24 a night. As for the complainers. I was reading some of the reviews about people coming to Sigsbee for the last 20+ years, it seems like they are taking the place for granted and just like to complain to have something to complain about. We did notice a lot of people who appeared to "holding themselves at bay" in their coaches, meaning they didn't come out much and when they did they seemed moody or sour. Instead of complaining about the grass around your lot, borrow a mower from the camp host and cut it. It would take you a total of 5 minutes. Instead of complaining about trash, help police it up. Instead of complaining about generators, use some of the money your hoarding and invest in solar. Instead of staying logged on to the internet all day long, log off so others can enjoy it. Be part of the solution not the problem. As I head back to Korea I can't help but wish I could spend one more day at Sigsbee.

We stayed at Sigsbee for a week that was part of a three month retirement trip to Florida. We had read the Sigsbee for first-timers as well as the reviews on this website. We knew we would be boondocking during our short stay. We understood the rules even before arriving. We were expecting the worst based on reviews, but as it turned out, we were pleasantly surprised. The office staff was very friendly as were the hosts. Buzz gave me a ride in his cart and showed me all the options for where we could camp. There were plenty of sites from which to choose and we had a lot of open space around our T@B so we weren't swallowed up by the big rigs. The restrooms were well maintained for the most part except for one night when some type of insect was swarming. Our only complaint is the noise and fumes from all the generators in the overflow area. It's too bad that MWR can't reinvest some of the camping fees and run electricity throughout the park, but then I guess they would have to limit the length of your stay similar to the state parks. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay at Sigsbee.

Jan-Mar 2017

12 winters at Sigsbee and no improvements in the campgrounds. The facilities are way overused due to increased active duty and their families using the laundries and showers. The facilities were not constructed to handle the overload. Yes, it's warm, and the water is lovely, but wait until you have your lovely site ruined by someone who moves in next to you with a loud asphyxiating generator (or two). The rule to have a generator the equivalent of 5db (Honda 2000) has been pushed aside as two generators is now the fad. Key West is entertaining to say the least, but parking downtown is now virtually non-existent and expensive. It's about the money. MWR is now the funding agent for the active duty facilities and CO's "appear" to be in a double bind situation of not wanting to rock the boat on a cash cow. Comments were made about active duty rent funding the campground...the campground made money before active duty used it for housing. I'm not blaming the active duty for taking advantage of the situation...if we were active duty here, we probably would too. The "rock pile" hook up sites were not made for the 40ft plus RV's but I've seen worse at civilian sites. The Sunset Restaurant (please do away with the Lounge name) violates SECNAVINST 5100.13e Smoking Regulations. Although they call it open air, smokers routinely light up next to you while you're trying to eat, and during entertainment. Even if you sit outside in close quarters, second hand smoke is a killer. Common sense has eliminated smoking from open air events in stadiums!! All being said, why do we keep coming back...beats shoveling snow.

The good-this is Key West with lots to do. This park is substandard with most facilities overcrowded and dirty. Sunset lounge is good. People were very nice. Just way overcrowded for the facilities. If you like noise and carbon monoxide you will love the generous generator hours 0700-2300 with extensions granted for late football games. A nice change would be to have a section with limited generator hours. Maybe (Gasp) 0800-2000 or shorter. In 3.5 weeks with nice temps we ran a total of 3.6 generator hours. Spent our money on solar, inverter and batteries. Got tired of the co detector going off during the evening from the fumes of Honda generators. Seems everyone has two since one seems not to do much.

See my review from Feb 16 last year. To add what's going on this year. No improvements on any of last years observations. The new complaint is the waiting lists for full hook ups, some genius decided it would be better (for who?) if we could not tell where we are on the list. What does that person think? that we are all idiots and can't count. So now people stand in front of the boards counting the names to see what number they are. The bathroom cleanliness is worse this year. No cleaning service on weekends or holidays. On MLK weekend there was A TURD FLOATING ON THE MENS ROOM FLOOR. Trashcan was overflowing, shower curtain rod in last stall broken and laying in a flood of water. Sickening and disgusting. Where is the NAS health department? Nobody cuts the grass in any of the areas of dry or hookup camping. If you think it needs cutting you cut it yourself. After coming here since 1994 the only real improvement has been the Gowifi service for internet usage. Everything has got worse and nobody seems to give a damn. Rooster is still keeping people awake in Sigsbee circle starting about 0300 every morning. Management should go visit Pelicans Roost campground in Jacksonville to see how a campground should be run.

I have camped a Trumbo and Sigsbee for several years. In the last 2 years the place has gone down hill. When campers complain, they are threatened with "don't complain too much, because all it would take is a stroke of the pen for the Commanding Officer to close the campground". Many campers fear if the complain, they will be put on the black list and not permitted to return or escorted off the base by security. I agree with earlier post, the roads are getting worse and worse. :<Name with held> tried to tell the campers at Trumbo the she personally spread gravel on the roads. They all insist they spread the gravel and nobody remembers seeing her there.

This is just an old soldier's opinion - here goes. We are back at NASKW for our 3rd year in a row. Love it. The rules seem as straight forward this year as they have been in the past with the addition of a consideration for active service members. I remind my fellow retirees of 2 items: 1. If it wasn't for the active service at all locations the FamCamps more than likely wouldn't exist. Remembering the numerous PCSs we made, I appreciate the active service members staying here with their kids. Great time for mom/dad time before the next deployment. 2. If we don't like the conditions here, we always have the option to try to find a spot in some of the local campgrounds. Price average about $115/day and RVers are in their neighbors living room (very tight quarters). Will we come back - almost positively. PS: we have stayed at numerous FamCamps across the US. Some are better than other but all contain my fellow military family brothers and sister that have always felt like family. And thanks to www.MilitaryCampground.us for a great service. Added a pic of sunset from Sunset Lounge.

After reading UH1-Vietnam's comment I felt I had to write this one. We have been coming to Key West for several years and have always enjoyed it and are enjoying it this year. Yes, the bathroom's could be cleaner, but when you have a couple of hundred campers using them - Well? The tent camping has been closed at Sigsbee Circle across from the marina. It flooded enough during full moon periods at high tides and once completely flooded so the Base Cdr closed them for safety reasons. A replacement tent site has been established behind the pavilion I think is a nice spot. Get your facts straight. Firebase4 commented earlier that the front row of the Rockpile and Hollywood were reserved for Active Duty. I walked through there yesterday and there were only TWO sites reserved for Active Duty.

Agree with below (the next one down) comments. Bathrooms were dirty. Over all looked like much needed weed eating, grass cutting, liter pick up, fixing up etc is needed. Seems to have gone down in the up keep since last year and other years back. Tent campers: they closed the tent area down the road from NEX. Guess it is called Arthur Street area. Such a shame. Word is it was closed cause of flooding. Been that way for years. All of the tent sites did not flood. True reason may be the big rig RVs complained about tents, and their POVs, blocking their view (RVers view). I heard such complaints few years ago. So, suspect they got rid of the tenters to pacify the RVs. Shame. Tent campers have just as much right to camp here. Host are host. Few good ones there and a few you don't even want to meet or deal with. Won't mention names. But sure you know who they are. Trumbo is still good place to dry camp. Area by the inlet is fixed up nice. That should be the tent area. Go figure. Guards back on the gate. Good news. Laundry room ran by NEX is still dirty, trashy and dirty. What else is new. For the money they take in each year off RVers you would think much more could be done here. Wrong.

Concur with previous comments on how the system is being played by many active duty buying rigs on the government, but this is not a new problem with the substandard housing rules and how the housing allowances are allocated. We dry camped for two days prior to placement in a power site, but before we hooked up I used a weed eater and lawnmower to clean up the site since it does not look like there has been any cleanup done in months. The maintenance of the park is an issue that could be fixed by mowing and weed eaters. The camp hosts were exceptional, Jeff and Mo helped us a lot and especially on the weekend when the office is closed. Wifi good in most sites, but we did not try at Trumbo annex.

August 2016

During the summer, off-season period (Apr-Sep), there have typically been plenty of full-hookups available at the Sigsbee NASKW Campground. However, this summer (at least o/a 11 Aug 2016), Sigsbee (temporarily??) had no full-hook-up sites available. Why? Off the record, I'd been told a growing number of local, active-duty, permanent party personnel are starting to use the full-hookup sites at the Sigsbee NASKW Campground as a permanent housing option. With rent in the local area extremely high, it's easy to see the financial attraction. During the winter, high-season, period (Oct-Mar), it's always been the norm for full-hookup sites at Sigsbee to be at or near capacity the entire time to accommodate all the snow-birds. To handle the overflow during this period, Trumbo Point (with several hundred dry-camping sites) is temporarily opened for use. When full-hookup sites are not available during the summer, off-season, there are a limited number of dry-camping spaces at Sigsbee to handle some overflow. However, in the event the Sigsbee full hookup and dry-camping sites reach capacity, not sure whether management would consider opening Trumbo Point during the summer, off-season. Bottom line, if you're planning on visiting NASKW Campground (summer or winter), it's best to call ahead to check on availability.

We stayed from the 8th of July through the 15thf July, the laundry and bathhouse in the front park where in terrible shape. The men's side was tore up, the laundry side was so dirty and machines where in such bad shape would scare you to put anything in them. The biggest grip I have is when we checked in they told us the front row with trees and shade was for active duty, got no problem with that but the signs on power stands say active duty or short term retirees, 10 days or less. The guy in office tells us he has worked there 2 weeks and knows all the rules, so we explain we are there for 7 days so there is no one on site could we have it for a week, not no but hell no. So we take another site on next row and I'll darn here comes a retiree pulls in the site we asked for. Back to the office ask what's going on with the active duty policy and now it's a mistake but we can't fix it. It's good to know they still are the same way in the office, do what we say not what we do. Been going down there for 20 years seen people come and go and nothing really has changed, pretty sure that was our last trip down there, too bad we enjoy being in the Keys. Just my 2 cents worth

Well I can only guess that since the 2 or 3 reviews right before me were posted that all hell broke loose because when we got here there were no chickens, there was no issues with parking, there was no issue with trimming grass, no issue with management, no issues with anything they were complaining about. Granted we only stayed 4 days, but we had a great time, everyone in the office was really nice and helpful and accommodating. I'm sure during the winter months it gets really crazy down here and peoples nerves get a little frayed so I can't speak to that, just speaking to what we saw when we was here. I don't remember seeing any chickens on base at all, plenty in town, but not one on base. Everything was well trimmed and neat and clean including the laundry facility. We did go down to the Sunset Bar a couple times and that was nice, limited menu but what they had was good. Like someone else had mentioned the commissary and nex are really convenient right on the other side of the ball fields. I think we'll be back, but not during winter months, that sounds too crazy, maybe early spring. We stayed in a motorhome.

I'll echo some of the thoughts expressed in previous comments. The location of the Sigsbee campground is great, beautiful views, nice cool breeze, it's the perfect location. The price as well is pretty darn nice, you definitely won't beat it down here. The commissary and NEX are very close by, there is a gym, bath houses and laundry facilities. The statement about the bathroom facilities needing a facelift is accurate however as well as the statement about crappy roads. My issue comes primarily with management. The statement made about them seeming to "make up rules" seems spot on. I feel like they live to complain about every little thing and it's never about anything substantial but rather little things that no one else would bat an eye at. Such silly examples could include, car toward the front of your rig=move it or we'll fine you, Boat won't fit in the car wash and you wanna hose off your car/boat at the site for a few minutes=we'll fine you. Now please don't get me wrong, I have no issue following rules, I am in the military after all. I would also say if you are infringing in any way on anyone else's vacation then you need to reevaluate as well. However, if the "rules" don't seem to have any real basis and you're not bothering anyone then what is the big deal? This is supposed to be relaxing and the almighty MWR (that's a whole other issue,.....) should exist to make the service members life better, not bombard them with unnecessary/annoying rules and threaten to call security when asked to explain. Yes, that happened, I'm still waiting to see the instruction where it defines all of this. My friend and I were parking our second vehicles (we're PCSing and waiting on housing) in a small grassy area by my rig, we were forced to move them because it was deemed a "community area". Mind you there are no grills/tents/benches/tables or anything else that could make one think that was a hopping community spot. Additionally, the very small size of it made it's use as anything other than a parking spot highly unlikely. But logic aside that spot just has to be open for the "mythical" weekender that can't find a spot to hang out anywhere else on the acres of open land at  Sigsbee. That was about a month ago, what's has happened on that chunk of prime real estate since then? You guessed it, nothing, it has sat empty right next to my RV spot where I now have to cram my vehicles in. Overall this campground isn't terrible, as mentioned before it does have many nice attributes. But my 2 cents is that the campground community as a whole would benefit if management would calm down and save their thunder for when someone is really ruining the atmosphere.

Here they go again, making up the rules as they go. Dry camp has been empty for awhile now. We have had empty full hook-ups for a few days. A friend went to request a different site and was told that they couldn't move because it would screw up the rotation of everyone else. Nobody has rotated in weeks! They would still have the same number of empty sites if they let them move. I think that Dawn is holding the sites for her friends when they come over from Trumbo. It should be first come first served to be fair to everyone. This place has really gone down hill since she took over. They don't cut the grass, rarely do they trim the trees, when they do they just leave the trimmings lay where they fall for weeks. The roads are terrible gigantic pot holes that turn into mud holes 6 to 12 inches deep. This place needs a complete makeover starting with the office workers. The other thing is the chickens, not to mention the health issues for the kids and pets they get on your RV, tables, chairs and anything else you have outside and craped all over them. 12 ecicks were just hatched, about 10 are still alive 7 of which are Roosters, we will never get any sleep next season!

I have read the reviews and agree with most. noticed a lot of candy coating and I think i know why. Management for the past two years has gone down hill biased attitudes, tenants fear that if they complain they will be tossed out. I agree with the last review from Phanomil, however I will add some observations, CHICKENS have took over, ROOSTERS sometimes start crowing 3 or 4 am and don't stop all day. it started a little over two years ago with the feeding of one hen named Henrietta. The person feeding the hen {alledged} arranged somehow for a rooster to join up with the hen. She has been told by management to stop feeding the many chickens we have now and she still sneaks around and feeds the flock. The manager knows her very well and appears to do nothing about it. Feeding and cottling wild game is prohibited but still goes on. the chickens fecal is on the picnic table, on our rugs and roofs We have  young children here that are exposed to the fecal piles; environment unhealthy for all. THE ONLY THING GOOD ABOUT NASKW campground is the PRICE and LOCATION since about two and one half years ago. The other important observation is another health issue, they do not clean the bathrooms on weekends, holiday weekends. No bathroom maintenance on weekends, holiday weekends either. We have but one Handicap toilet and one handicap shower in dry camping. both have been broke through the weekend.

Sigsbee MWR has gone downhill in the last couple of years. All they care about now is making money off the campers. 1. No more grass cutting by the base or MWR. Place looks like crap everywhere. This is in all 3 Sigsbee campgrounds. 2. No more MWR sponsored cookouts or picnics. The pig roast that used to be every year is no longer being put on. 3.No moving to other sites that may be empty. I guess it is too much to ask of the 5 or 6 people sitting in the office. 4.Roads need maintenance bad. Big pot holes and when it rains floods everywhere. Nobody gives a damn I guess. 5.They should build another bath house at the east end of the dry campground. Can you imagine 225 dry campers (rigs, probably at least 400 guests), and 15-20 tent sites using a bathroom with two (2) commodes, 2 urinals and 3 showers for the men. Four (4) toilets and 3 showers for the women. This would violate all codes in the civilian community. 6. This year they added additional boundary lines in the 100 section and prevented the rigs from backing up too far. This was supposed to be for storage which never was used. Campers were harassed if they were a couple of inches too far back which no effect on anybody else. I personally saw a handicapped person forced to move his trailer because it was a couple of inches too far past the line going towards and empty grass area. Ridiculous to say the least but nobody will say anything because they are afraid of the camp manager throwing them out. 7. Laundry room maintenance in the circle is hit and miss. Washers and dryers are overworked and not fixed in a timely manner. The change machine has been broke for 2 years, MWR could care less. 8.Rough estimate would put the camping fees collected at 180K per month. I am sure the employees aren't that high paid so where is all this money going. Surely not back into improvements in the campground. 9. Many sites in dry camping now do not have picnic tables. Last few years every site had a table. I guess they will not spend the money to buy any more. 10. This year the circle campground is over run by Key West chickens. They crow starting at 0300 and continue all day. The chicken feces is around the camp sites posing a health risk but I guess the Navy thinks this is acceptable. It is impossible to get a full nights sleep unless you are in full hookup with the air conditioning running to block the crowing and cockle-do-do noise. Why isn't the Navy health dept. looking into this? This list is just the tip of the iceberg about what is going on down here. It is still a good deal for the price but it sure could be better. Compare this place to Mayport Naval Station campground and the difference is night and day. I believe they are both under the same MWR management. After talking to many campers here most feel the same way but are too afraid to say anything since they might get asked to leave. One person had the Security Police called by the staff to kick him off base when he was given conflicting information by the staff members. When he disagreed politely the gestapo was called on him.

Very nice location for us snow birds. The reasons for not giving Sigsbee an overall 5 rating is due to the maintance of the campgrounds. The grass areas, except the sports area, needs to be mowed and the dirts roads needs to be fixed. There are some mud holes that are 6 to 8 inches deep, even in Hollywood and Pebble Beach area. With the park being full, the monthly income is around $150,000 a month. You would think they could afford to fix the roads. That's my opinion.
