Boyd’s Campground in Fla. welcomes travelers for 50 years

KEY WEST, Fla. —  Newlyweds Boyd and Elsie Hamilton were refugees from Canadian winters when they first saw Key West in 1948, describes KeysNews.com.

“They drove as far south as they could go and still speak English,” Danny Hamilton, one of the couple’s sons, told KeysNews.com.

In 1963, the couple bought waterfront land on Stock Island and decided to open a campground, renting out spots for trailers, RVs, tents and campers — the news article says the original price for a lot was $1.50 per night.
