This park was fairly unkempt, with water bottles and beverage cans littered at the base of trees all over the park. The water was okay, filled with lots of natural things like twigs and leaves, which is to be expected for a nature reserve - but also means that resort beaches may make for better swimming, depending on who you...

We visited this park the first week of August and although it rained off and on, we were still able to walk around to the lighthouse, the beach and the fishing area. The water was warm, there were several families enjoying the water, the beach and facilities were clean. We would have rented a kayak if the weather wasn't so... More

Entrance fee is $8 per car. Ranger very friendly and informative. $20 for umbrella and chair for the day. Parking is plentiful and many public restrooms. Lots of fun places to check out and fish. Lighthouse best seen at beach access #7.

Loved the visit to escape the man made noises ...enjoying natures sounds! Walking to the park is not that convenient. Biking is better...bike paths really help keep the cars safely away from the two-wheel crowd. Beaches are best on weekdays...when the day visitors from Miami being their carload without bringing their courtesy, mutual respect. The fewer carloads, the nicer the... More

Beaches had seaweed washed up on the sand. Litter in the grassy reeds(underwater). Crowded on weekends. Good lighthouse tour. Pretty restaurant within the park. Food was good, especially the fish. Service was good, staff was friendly, but the floors and tables were dirty. Turtle nests were marked and checked on daily. Interesting talking with the wildlife biologist who checked on... More

A visit to this state park is a real treat. The wildlife are incredible and the lighthouse is unlike any that I've visited; it is truly an enchanting place to visit and to take beautiful colorful photographs. Visitors can rent bikes, walk trails, play on the beach...there are lots of activities for everyone. It's a great way to spend the... More

It costs $8 to get in, but if you spend the day there, it will be worth it. Start your morning with breakfast at the Boater's Grill, but take bug spray, or bugs will force you to eat inside. Rent a bike and ride around on the very flat island bike paths. Eat lunch at the Lighthouse Café and spend... More

My experience here was terrific. The beach is a bit different than those of Clearwater, but it was very nice. I went late just before closing time at sunset. There were barely any people there, so you had a whole area to yourself. Watching the sun set here was very beautiful and calm. This is a great beach and park... More

The lighthouse is worth visiting, but there are better beaches to spend your day on than Key Biscayne.
