About

National Park Service

The best way to truly experience the islands of the Dry Tortugas is by actually spending a night out in that island wilderness. Like most national parks, visitors to the Dry Tortugas have the option of spending a few nights out on their own. The islands feel like they are truly in the "middle of nowhere," as you are about 70 miles from civilization.

Dry Tortugas Camping is highly limited. There is not enough space out on the islands to hold an unlimited amount of campers. Because of this, the ferry that travels to the Dry Tortugas only transports ten campers per day. It is a good idea to plan well in advance due to the low number of available spaces. Furthermore, each camper can only transport a total of 60-70 pounds. This does not include the containers of water campers will need to bring.
