This is a great park. We are staying in the campground. Secluded sites, oceanfront for a lot of them, secluded beach, real sand (not like the sand at Pennekamp), easy sites to get in (we have a big rig). Definitely prefer this park for camping over Pennekamp. The only negative, as is with all of the State Parks in the... More

Traveled here w/ husband & two kids (ages 1 & 3). Wonderful playground, my 3 yr old was in heaven. Nice beach area. Great place for a picnic. Lots of locals were kite-surfing, really enjoyed watching them. Admission was about $5. Overall very well-maintained state beach park!

Great park we camped here for the night only allowed because it was the start of the kayak challenge from Marathon to Key West. The facilities such as showers and rest rooms were clean and hot showers very impressed with the campgrounds. The weather was cold and dreary do not able to explore and early in the morning we set...

We were disappointed to find out that we couldn't rent a kayak due to the wind (we wanted to paddle the mangroves) but enjoyed our stroll along the beach from One end to the other. Saw an osprey and watched the pelicans dive for fish. Took the nature trail which you access a short distance down A1 and that was... More

Small launch area for canoes and kayaks. After two hours of fishing from our canoe with thawed shrimp, we determined there are no fish in the Lagoon, although we saw minnows, and pelicans were diving for their food.

To get to the hiking area, you don't have to pay admission to the park! It is located on the bay side, about 1 mile south of the main park entrance. There is a parking area off of the bike path. You follow the bike bath a short distance north and you find the entrance to the hiking area. It... More

This park is very well maintained with lots of picnic tables, trails, camping spots and a clean beach with lovely ocean vistas. If you're into canoeing and/or kayaking, this is a great spot. There is an area marked specifically for them.

We came here to kayak out of the wind when there were small craft warnings out. You can kayak up the canal, go thru a mangrove tunnel (with lots of wildlife) and come out on the bay side of the park. Lots of Kite Boarders to watch, excellent entertainment.

Clean small park with some views of kiteboarders. Kayaking, paddle boarding and other activities at your finger tips. A hidden beauty in the Florida keys.

On our way to Key West we stayed at the State Park. The don't get much better then this. Centrally located with great access to Marathon Key. This would have been a 5 star but the bathrooms/showers were being renovated and we had to leave the park to bring our dog to the beach. It was an inconvenience that was... More
