For Hiking...Go to Bayside Area

We were 'day users' and wanted to hike only but the gate attendant did not tell us that the best trail is on the Bayside part of the park and does not require a park admission. Oh well, it's a good cause and we didn't mind paying. Good trail markers and signage. Mostly shaded. Uneven trail with trip hazards- wear... More

We camped out in the small campground one night on our way to Key West. The campsites are well laid out and come with fire pit, picnic table, water and electricity. The bathrooms/showers are clean but well-worn. The fact you are right on the Atlantic with no bugs due to the sea breeze is pretty great. The park is small,... More

Hubby n I have been coming here for the last five years all sites are on the beach and oceanviews and sunsets are beautiful! The beach itself is not the greatest but you have plenty of room for your beach chair with plenty of sun and no bugs. You will appreciate that at night when you look at the stars.... More

Been here 5 days and love/hate this park. Love: beauty. Hate: rats that come out at sunset Lots of them. I noticed that dumpsters don't tightly close. No communal sink to wash dishes. Advised by a worker to wash dishes at campsite. I'm toting bucket of dirty dishwater to dump in toilets because I don't want to toss any food... More

Love it, right on the water. But being in a tent u can hear the traffic and kept us awake. Now if you were in a camper it might now be bad.

My husband, tween kids, and I rented two double kayaks at the price of $21 or so dollars an hour. The water was pretty calm and temps were 82. We had a blast. Kayaked out to left of rental and went through a few mangroves that weren't too overgrown. Further down the shoreline the mangroves were too overgrown to kayak... More

A very nice park and very cool walks to see the vegetation from the area. hard to top where we are from (oregon), so compared to some that we have, it was OK. For others it might be spectacular.

This small ocean side state park is a a beautiful place to laze on the beach or walk through the mangroves. The Golden Orb trail in this park gives one a great view of what the untamed keys look like. This park also offers a great beach front experience for the day or for RV camping or primitive camping.

Scheduled to be closed September 2017 through ? for the construction of a sea wall to try and stop beach erosion. The campground here is nice with thick vegetation separating most of the sites on the sides, which is good as the sites are right next to each other. There is beach access from all the sites. The sites have... More

This is also a state park and was very upsetting to see how much trash was on the trail. It looked like someone had just dropped a bag of garbage all around. It's a shame that people have to litter. We were very disappointed with this park and probably would not return.
