Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park is just off the Overseas Highway on a road that veers to the right with the parking lot a short distance ahead. After parking, we paid $2.50 admission for each of us. There was no attendant so payment is made on the honor system into and envelope the inserted into a metal... More

Definitely too many mosquitos! We went there in the morning, as soon as the place opened, but I suppose it's not the best time to visit! I had about 30 bites on each arm and leg after taking the short walking tour, and the mosquitos were biting trough clothes! The paths were flooding (tides), so we had to take a... More

A little concerned when we were the only ones here but took a walk anyway We did not encounter a single mosquito (go figure). The walk seemed a little eerie as we were the only ones here and with little information on the park not sure what to expect. We ended up walking to near the shortcut to return and... More

Use extra spray to escape the mosquitos and you will enjoy a relaxing walk in a quite area of the Keys.

All we saw was trash and broken branches that needed to be picked up. There were not even any brochures in public area where they were supposed to be (about this park). A visitor from another country came me his brochure as he was going home or I would not have had the little info I did have. I know... More

Bug repellent didn't work. Read the previous reviews warning about mosquitos. Tried it anyway. Made our donation. Walked to first trail and had to head back. Looks like a nice place to visit during a different season.

My family visited the park mid-August. The biggest issue was mosquitos...we covered ouselves with spray but still they were everywhere. Particularly bad if you leave the paved trails...you would quickly have about 10 on you with many more swarming around. We basically tried twice to go down some of the unpaved trails and completely freaked and ran back! It was... More

Twice hubby and I visited this park hoping to get some good wildlife shots. The first visit we cut short because of mosquitoes (we stayed about an hour). The second visit, we barely got past the entrance gate before we were covered with the pests. Next time (if there's a next time), we'll use the "deep woods" stuff.

First time there,I expected a bit more. The beaches were fine, the rest rooms and changing areas were very clean. I was looking for more of a wild life, natural fauna and trails. What I did fine were careless visitors who could not be bothered to dispose of their trash. The people who work at the park are friendly helpful... More
