Tour Bus and Oversize Vehicle Parking Information

Parking Oversized Vehicles
Due to sizing restrictions, oversized vehicles (tour buses, RV's, campers, etc) are prohibited from parking at our three municipal lots. For overnight visits, It is suggested, that large vehicles make reservations at local RV parks or campgrounds and use public transportation to commute to your destination.

RV Parking Regulations
Code of Ordinances Section 63.191 Prohibition:

"Except as provided herein, it shall be unlawful and a violation for any person to park, cause to be parked, allow to be parked, or cause to allow to remain standing or stationary, except in the normal course of traffic flow, any recreational vehicle, or and combination of a recreational vehicle and a motor vehicle, in excess of twenty (20) feet in length or seven (7) feet in width, exclusive of mirrors and other safety devices determined by the department of highway safety and motor vehicles to be necessary for the safe and efficient operation of such vehicles, whether occupied or not, and whether attended or unattended, except for the purpose of and unless actual loading or unloading or passengers or of property is taking place, on any street over which the city exercises parking jurisdiction."

The City of Key West is concerned that recreational vehicle owners are driving to the island without being aware of the limited services available to them. RVers planning on an overnight stay should make reservations ahead of time, since most of the season the few campgrounds in the Lower Keys are often sold out - especially on weekends and holidays.

City ordinances forbid overnight parking on city streets, parks and beaches. It also forbids RVs in excess of 20 feet in length or seven feet in width from parking on city streets; these vehicles may park in designated parking lots, but not for overnight. Signs have been placed along U.S.1 advising RVers of the parking prohibition and directing them to public and private lawful parking facilities within city limits.
