This is perfect if you're looking for a relaxing beach close to Ft Lauderdale. We enjoyed this beach on a Saturday morning in August. There is a $6 fee to enter the park. We found plenty of parking. Facilities include rest rooms and picnic tables. It's a short walk from the parking to the beach. Very convenient. The beach is... More

We went to this park/beach 2 times this past weekend and have been here several times before. If you are a diver, it's great to dive the Jacks!! There is a lot to see right along the jacks. If you go on the state park side parking is $6.00 and less crowded. If you go to the pier side it's... More

Park was quiet and scenic. However, you have to pay to go in, parking was long walk to the pavilion and there were no fans in the pavilion.

This park is located on the southern side of the Port Everglades entrance accessible by car along A1A or by boat on the ICW. The beach is a nice expanse of sand stretching from shaded picnic area. On week days it's quiet and great for family picnics. If you come by boat (small boat to fit under low bridge) there... More

I love the serenity this park his to offer. I went on a weekday and there were only a few other people I shared the beach with. The downside was there was so much dried up seaweed covering the beach that my children couldn't even find a spot to build a sandcastle. It would be nice if that got cleaned... More

The beach has a nice pier and lots of free parking. The beach is not very wide but the water is clear and the sand is free of any rocks. There is a gentle surf. We saw some locals having a nice bonfire and signing on the beach. If you are here around 4:00pm you can watch the cruise ships... More

I had my ceremony at John Lloyd State Park and it was absolutely awesome! Carmelo and Bob are wonderful. Carmelo ensured a beach wheelchair was ready and waiting for my mom and worked with my coordinator to change my pavilion the afternoon before the service. Sooooo grateful. Bob was our ranger and he was super friendly and helpful. Mom was... More
