“Not worth the stop”

Long Key State Recreation Area
Ranked #54 of 129 things to do in Key West
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 January 2017

Some people love this place. Nice boardwalk. Poor views of the ocean. Clean restrooms. It may be a decent place to camp, but it looked fairly deserted. You might want to pass it by and head further south along the Keys.

Camping is nice there. In a camper you don't hear the traffic on US1 but I imagine in a tent it will be hard to sleep. Sites are water and electric with a dump station in the area. I was told that in October 2017 they will close to build a sea wall

This is our second time here in two months and enjoyed the trails and the waterfront areas of the park. The waterfront area is near the camp sites on the south end of the park. There is a small deck that goes to the edge of the water for viewing and pictures.
The trails are on the north end of the park and are nice. There is also some platform camping along the boardwalk here as well offering some nice spots. This time we were there there was a unusual extra high tides so some of the trails were flooded.

Not very busy, but couldn't get into the campground to look around. Would have liked to do more paddleboarding there.

To be fair we did not take the one hour walk/excursion,we did not have the correct shoes. There is no beach, a walk along the water, nothing special.
