Camping and Transportation Options.  Campground reservations available beginning October 1st.

Race headquarters will again be located on the east side of the island, across from the park campground and bathhouse.  There are 20 tent sites in the campground, each with a picnic table and charcoal grille.  One tent is allowed per site, 6 people maximum per site.  The entire campground is quite nice, and has been set aside for use by our runners and their guests exclusively.  It is recommended for those with small children and for additional privacy and quiet.  Sites may be reserved begining October 1st, for two nights MINIMUM only--i.e., Sunday night, December 30 and Monday night, December 31.  Cost is $29.97 per night.  Reserve by calling the park office at 561-845-4445 or 866-383-5730.  You must provide a special "Peanut Island 24" password to reserve a site.  It will be sent to you after registering for the event.  If you do not have the password, contact Race Director Bob Becker, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

All runners and guests may pitch a tent in the grass area next to the race headquarters pavilion.  No minimum stay is required and there is no charge.  (We will also erect race canopies, with side curtains, for runners who are not bringing a tent, to store gear or take a nap.) 

Important note: the race will provide free boat transportation on Monday, December 31, and Tuesday, January 1, to and from the island.  We cannot guaranty race transport on Saturday (or any other day) should you arrive early.  To make your own alternate arrangements, call Captain Joe’s Water Taxi at Riviera Beach Marina, 561-339-2504, or Sailfish Marina Resort, 800-446-4577 on Singer Island, for prices and times of departure, and make your own arrangements, please.  
Should you be reaching Peanut Island in your own boat and launching from Phil Foster Park, you will need a Palm Beach County “North County” parking permit to leave vehicle and trailer overnight.  Call the county or Peanut Island Park office for further information.
