I stopped at this park twice while staying at a nearby hotel. I loved how clean and quiet it was. There is a small building with very clean bathrooms, a vending machine with cold soda and water, and an outdoor shower. There are 3 or 4 covered picnic pavilions. You can rent kayaks here, and once I read the reviews... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this gem driving from Key Largo to Key West. We decided to rent kayaks for $21.50 (a double kayak) and what a great idea that was. It was a lot of work, but WELL worth it!!! We kayaked through the mangroves and under the bridge, which you drive over to get into the park.... More

Large picnic areas right on the water. Easy walking trails. On a hot day you can still enjoy the outdoors cause the breezes will cool yas down.

A nice, small park on the east side of the Keys. Very pleasant earlier in the morning (before 11 am) as there were many fewer people than an hour or so later. No big, dramatic shells, but many very tiny versions. But, check closely for hitchhiking hermit crabs. I checked each shell but when I got back to the hotel,... More

We had a great time renting a kayak - $21 for two hours. Some great wildlife to see paddling around the inlets and canals. The beach is small and at low tide is only knee deep for over 100 yards out, but it has a nice bath house and playground for kids, with covered picnic areas. Admission for 2 adults... More

Seaweed covered what little bit of sand there was to sit on. Not a great beach to lay out and relax on.

There are two State Parks close to Marathon, the well know Bahia Honda and then the lesser known Curry Hammock. While the Curry Hammock is a smaller park, it is great because it is less touristy and stills has some great attractions. We rented kayaks and went through the Mangrove Tunnels, went around Deer Key and out into the ocean.... More

We were expecting clearer water as we had seen on many of the other beaches in the keys. Kayak prices were reasonable. We went around and through the mangroves. Jellyfish were everywhere you could see. It would have been nice if the park ranger would have given us a "heads up" because the kids were scared to death when we... More

We stayed nearby on a different campsite and came here specifically to kayak. It was amazing! We started out going through the bridge and mangrove tunnel. Beautiful! When we came out in the other side the water was fairly shallow and clear. We saw so much sea life...baby sharks, jellyfish, stingrays, horseshoe crabs and lots of fish. It was a... More

We had a FL State Parks Pass and stopped by this park to check out the kayak and swimming opportunities. It is a very small park, very nice and unbelievably uncrowded, maybe due to the fee of $3 per person. The beach area was great for sunbathing, but not so great for swimming, no sandy bottom. There were several covered... More
