We loved the walk up the old bridge, and the tranquil beaches. We saw nurse sharks by the marina, gently gliding through the water underneath the bridge. Just no luck with manatees. The park is great for geocaching, too!

It was a little cloudy when we visited but this is such a lovely walk. There's lots to see and the butterfly path is lovely to walk through. The waters are crystal clear with a great view of the old 7 mile bridge.

We went on an overcast day so maybe I would have gotten a better impression if we had gone on a sunny one. There is a small beach on one side with a shallow, calm area for swimming. The other side has a very narrow seaweed-covered beach that you can't really walk on. We went out on a boat for... More

This is the best beach in the Keys. A nice long stretch of sandy beach so perfect for beach-walking. Nice shallow entry so great for kids. Showers, change rooms, and bathrooms makes it convenient. A nice place to relax one afternoon.

We stopped here on our way back from Key West to Miami (our first time in this area). We ended up staying about 2 hours. I wish I'd have researched a bit more & allowed more time. A couple people in our group swam a little. There is hiking, beaches, swimming, etc... We walked out on this old bridge &... More

Love love this park. Probably the best state park in the keys! It's not easy to get a reservation, but well worth the effort. You need to book 11 months in advance as most parks in the Keys.

First you have to understand that the beaches in the Keys are not like the beaches in the Caribbean. The Keys are made of coral so the beach sand is not soft and nice sand is often imported. It isn't overly managed so if there has been a big storm for example, the water line may be very high with... More

We discovered this state partk when we came down in the summer of 2008, when we visited friends staying in Marathon Key. The beach is very narrow and this visit, there was lots of seaweed, but on a sunny afternoon, there were very few people there and it is a very peaceful spot, with calm water that looks greenish blue....

We stopped here because we had read so many raves about the beach, described as the most beautiful in the keys. We left wondering what we missed seeing. We enjoyed the small visitor center displays; the walk to the old railroad bridge is short and worth taking to see the view from the trestle area. The ranger gave us directions... More
