Cultural History: Imagine sleeping next to a pre-Civil War fortification in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico constructed over 150 years ago. This is Fort Jefferson and these are the Dry Tortugas. Remote, quiet, beautiful, and like nothing you will ever experience anywhere else. While camping at the Dry Tortugas you will have opportunities to learn about the military history, maritime heritage, and experiences of diverse groups of people that have been here before you; slaves, prisoners, soldiers, and scientists.
