the beaches were infested with upside-down jellyfish the entire family came away tingling from stings. If the weather cooperates i would recommend a cruise to the offshore reef, and avoid the close in swimming

We did the 2.5 hour snorkeling tour. The captain and the assistant on the boat were awesome. You have a solid 45 minutes to an hour in the water and can swim freely in a large secure area. Very fun and worth every penny!

We had a great time. It was our sons first snorkeling trip. We knew it would take some getting used to and he did great but was spent with in the first 30 min. So we took him back to the boat and figured now we would just wait till it was time to go. Well to our surprise the...

Great place but plan on booking a snorkel trip, dive trip, kayaks, etc. we rented a boat. Newer center console boats. 21ft long. Prices include gas. Very fair prices. However, be warned about boating in the keys - it's complicated. Way more than most are used to. I've owned 4 boats and grew up on boats. Lots of reefs, shallows,...

We have camped here 2 times before. Previous visits I rated the campground at 5. I am a little disappointed in the upkeep this time. Our campsite was not clean and trees were allowed to grow in such a way that made the site narrow. Our rig is 13 foot 4 inches high and some of the tree growth made...

Everything was nice and quiet. People were so friendly. We all looked out for each other, so everyone was comfortable! I say it is an excellent place to go! We definitely plan to go back. We just loved everything about it, so nothing we can complain about!

Beautiful water area. The campground are was not private at all. We were literally with 15 feet of other campers on each side with no trees separating each site. The bathrooms and showers were nice and clean. Although everyone was so close, we slept just fine bc no one made any unreasonable noises. The nature center was awesome. I think...

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...
