Nice campground. Small. We were in site #4. Nice washrooms, with compost toilets (not outhouses) these are real washrooms like you'd fine in any state park but they don't flush, they are compost-toilets. Sites are very large and very private. Short distance from ocean, but the near beach is not good for swimming because of mucky mud bottom. The day... More

There is a very nice beach but we went for the kayaking. The cost was reasonable (sorry, someone else paid, no details!), and included life jackets and seats you can install. You do have to carry the jackets, seats and oars, and unload and return the kayaks yourself, but that was not a big deal at all for us. We... More

We camped here over Spring Break - we were a little disappointed that our oceanfront lot was not visible from our site unless we stood on the picnic table. But beach area was very nice (rare in the keys) and kayaking was amazing. Saw tons of starfish, small sharks, stingrays and horseshoe crabs. Very quiet and well kept. Would come... More

I was in trouble with my family for this excursion. The reviews were great, so I talked them into renting kayaks. The ranger was friendly but overwhelmed. It wasn't clear when we first went in where you rented kayaks, so we saw sign and went back to station. Ranger was overwhelmed by cars coming in, people returning kayak equipment, etc.... More

Driving north from Marathon, before you get to the park entrance there's an area on the left where you can pull off and park, large enough for maybe 5 cars. Then if you walk north along the paved walkway, after maybe 1/4 mile you'll come upon a looped hiking trail clearly marked on your left. The trail is very uneven... More

Lovely clean property with great facilities. We rented kayaks and enjoyed the route round the island. We were given a waterproof map so it was easy to navigate.

We made a special trip for an annual car show. We like car shows, and we like listening to the owners. One owner had a "67 Camaro (first Camaro year.) I owned a new '67 Camaro, but this guy had put a zillion $$ into his restoration.

This state park is right off Route 1 just above Marathon. It is easy to get to and is not expensive - $5 for the 1st person and $1 for each additional for day use. There is a campground that I did not use. The beach is clean, sandy with covered picnic tables, bathroom, outdoor fresh water spigots. Parking is... More

There are two halves to this park; the marked half is on the OCEAN side and requires a fee... this is where the campground and beaches are. The other half is a 1.5-mile nature trail through the hammock on the BAY side and doesn't have a fee. This part of the park is almost impossible to find without previous knowledge... More
