except for the dingbat next to us with his massive motor coach and harley davidson that he just loved to goose the throttle every few seconds while rolling the park at 9 pm. Other than that the place was awesome. I spent a lot of time in the Keys in my younger days and would always blow through Key Largo...

We kayaked around the mangroves for about an hour to start our day. It was beautiful and lush. The water in the groves was clear and if you just floated you could catch site of the different dishes and crabs calling that spot home. Next we set up a spot on the beach. I swam out to the lagoons bouy...

Breezy conditions and cool weather enhanced our stay at another beautiful Florida State Park. No Bugs! Park was well kept and amazingly clean. Plenty of restrooms, showers, and even a washer and dryer. Volunteers were busy and friendly. We stayed in our 27' RV in the campground and everything else was in easy walking distance. Windy couple of days prevented...

My brother and I took my two sons for a glass bottom boat cruise out to the coral reefs, and for a paddle through the mangroves. What a great introduction to the boys for coral. The boat trip was worth every (reasonably priced) penny, and the catamaran hull ensured a flat ride, even with 2-4ft swell. There was tons to...

This is a great place to go for a day trip. They have Kayaking, glass bottom boat tours, and snorkeling. Very reasonably priced. Parking will be extra, cost varies depending on how many people you are with. Overall a nice day trip

Nice space. Trees, table and grill in each site. You share a water line with your neighbor. You may not want to shower at the same time since the water pressure drops. I suggest to put water in your tank and use your pump. A screen room is necessary if you want to sit outdoors most of the time. Wide...

Our family had a super time and saw so much sealife...much more than we expected. This is a finely honed operation. The staff efficiently works to get everyone what they need. Capt Wayne and Katie made the 45 minute trip out fun, all while providing us with instructions. They took us to a spot where tropical fish, squid, barracuda, and...

This was a very enjoyable experience for me and my family. The 'beach' is not the best--it's hard packed ground coral and not comfortable on a towel. The water activities were great. We were there on a very busy weekend, but once we figured out the system to get reservations for kayaks and paddle boards, it was easy. The kayak...

We had a fun trip on the snorkel tour. Capt Bill and Morgan were very friendly and informative. It was a windy day and they took us out to Grecian Reef and we saw a great variety of sea life. Would highly recommend it.
