This is the deal of a lifetime. Captain Wade and Morgan were great when they took us at to Looe Reef on their very comfortable boat. There were about 35 of us that went on the 9:30 am tour. It took roughly 35 minutes out and then we had about 1 1/2 hours of great snorkeling--tons of fish and coral.... More

I am so glad that we had the chance to visit the park on multiple occasions so that we were able to enjoy the different beaches available. The Sandspur Beach was a ribbon of white sand and clear blue water that was a pleasure to relax there for a day. The beach at the other end of the key between... More

We stopped here for a swim after driving from Key West. The beach was awesome and the kids loved the place. Very nice for a picnic too.

There are not too many public beaches to sunbathe in the Keys, so a stop here was well worth it. It was clean, water was clear and not overly crowded. There were covered picnic tables and a very well kept bathhouse. We pay a lot more to park at the beaches in the Northeast during summer, so $9 was worth... More

just another small beach-although it is the keys and wasn't crowded-easy access-clean but not something to search out-if its close to where you are then it is fine but don't expect anything memorable

Travelled with the top down to this beautiful state park just 37 miles up from Key West. Great amenities; kayak, snorkel, umbrella and beach chair rentals. A passable lunch restaurant, boat launch and several great stretches of sandy beach with swimmable ocean. Well worth the trip.

The park offers several beaches. We choose sandpur beach and what a spot ! You feel like you are in the caribean.White sand, azur water,... More

Worth the State Park fee ($9 at writing of this review for 2). Great sandy beach areas with shaded areas with picnic tables. Gorgeous color water (Aqua socks helpful at shoreline but then fine), shallow water mostly. We didn't try snorkeling so can't comment on that but enjoyed view from lookout bridge/pier, saw lots of animals in the water and... More

We stayed at the Buttonwood campground for 3 nights and it was an overall amazing experience! Don't forget to pack insect repellent and definitely don't forget the snorkeling gear!! A wonderful experience for my whole family!! We are looking forward to coming back next year!
