Cedar Key, FL

We drove up on Saturday to join the Tin Can Tourists at Sunset Isle RV Park. We had planned to be there around 2:00 but didn't get in till around 3:30.

It turned out that it was probably just as well. There had been some reporters out there on Thursday and the meet had been featured in the Gainesville press and online. And the weather forecast for the weekend was good.

As a result the campground had been packed with people to see all the trailers at the open house between 11.00 and 3.00. One person we spoke to in the office couldn't get in since morning because of all the visitors. So we missed all that. Even so, as we pulled round to our site, some people actually followed us round to see inside the Boler and talk before we had even set up!

We had a nice site, even though it was in amongst the big rigs. So we set up and went into Cedar Key, had dinner and explored a bit. Came back to the park and walked around to see all the great rigs and meet and chat and watch the sun go down. Met some nice and interesting people. The park actually faces West, so it has great views of the sunset.

Had a quiet night. No-one played their gen-set!

Woke to a misty morning. Went into Cedar Key and had breakfast at the Rusty Rim. Packed up just before noon, chatted with our hosts and headed for home.

A great trip, great company. A great RV / camp site. Very clean facilities. The rig did very well. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Some pics of the Tin Can Tourists

I thought I would add these in case anyone was interested. They are usually all posted on their Flikr page but none there yet of this meet.

Clive...just saw your post......Cedar Key is one of my favorite places, especially for photography of wildlife and sunrise/sets...another campground .....which only has five slots and 5 or saw motel rooms...right on the water...its called Lowkey Hideaway...owned by former full-timers and they have a Great attitude and always there to help out.......very relaxing place.....their website is "Every miles a memory"

Again, thanks for sharing...those vintage campers are great and the folks usually do a first class job in restoring them......Horst

Horst; I really like the atmosphere of the place too. It makes me think how Key West might have been before it got so commercial. Thanks for the info about Lowkey Hideaway. Sounds like a nice spot.

Sherry; From looking at the TCT photo page, it seems Cedar Key is a yearly/regular thing. Though there are no pics of it from this year. Check out their "Attend a Rally" page for upcoming events. They meet at various places in FL including Bradenton and Koreshan.

Thanks for the link, Clive. They're hosting rallies all over!
We really, really enjoyed the Bolerama in Quebec last fall. So many people had done amazing things with 13 feet and tug... And what a great bunch of folks!
Hope to meet you one of these days at a rally...
Sherry

LoKey Hideaway

We know the owners as well. A really nice couple and a great place to stay though not many sites.

Love Cedar Key, in some sense old Florida,

Norm

I am adding this as a destination for sure. I love the Keys, been there many times and can't wait to get back. I have never camped there though, need to do that.

EddyEd,
Just an FYI.
Cedar Key is not part of what people usually call "The Keys".

Cedar Key is on the west coast, a couple hours north of us. (We live in the Tampa Bay area). It's an old fishing village area, quite interesting and far less crowded than the Florida Keys in South Florida.
