My long anticipated arrival was ruined by the grouchy lady named "Dee" at check in! All we got was a list of "do nots' upon our arrival. No welcome greeting and no tips on things we must see. Other than that, the park is awesome. We were here to camp and the camping sites were nice. Great views, with a... More

Absolutely amazing view from our campsite. No beach, but can sit at the back if the site and watch the kids play in the ocean. Kayaking off the site was uneventful, hope to get back to try the kayak trail (have to enter from inside the island). Road noise can be problematic if that slept of thing bothers you. Other... More

Great little weekend getaway with the family! Clean bathhouses and property camped 2 nights on the water and truly loved the property.

Great walk from the mangroves to the ocean. It wasn't crowded at all so it was nice to get away from crowds of people. If you walk slowly and look carefully you'll see lots of really cool wildlife. It was a very peaceful place! Fantastic views of the ocean with many informative plaques but no beach.

So surprised when I was able to book a campsite in February when the weather in the Keys is excellent. All the campsites were right on the beach. We pitched our tent 15 feet from the water and had a panoramic view of the ocean. The spot included a firepit -- we were able to have a campfire right on... More

Long Key State Park is so absolutely beautiful. Every camping spot is right on the water. We had one site at the beginning of the loop for tenters only. The sites are semi-private and some have more shade than others. We got one with little to no shade at all, which was fine for a day in February, but I... More

Let me start by saying I am not the camping type; I’m the hotel type! That being said, I tagged along with a friend to this state park for a little camping expedition. This is an awesome state park, both for day-use and for campers. As you enter this state park, you stop to pay a day fee, or register... More

We are such a fan of this campground that we have been camping here for the last 4 years. Every campsite is directly on the water. The bathhouses are always clean and the park rangers are friendly and helpful. I know that the highway noise is an issue for some tent campers, but we use a window fan in our... More

Came in with a small crew for MLK weekend. The park hugs the Atlantic (no crossovers to the Gulf, but you get great views of it from the raised-platform restrooms). The campsites were large enough for our vehicles, 2 big tents and room to spare. You can purchase firewood for $6 a bundle (cash only) from the park rangers. No... More

Camped here for a week for new years and had a great time. The campsites are on the beach, at low tide it is very shallow. Several different kinds of fish in the water. We took kids and let them snorkel and kayak off our campsite area. The trails are short but interesting. There is no concession area, buy wood... More
