Worth the $34 for two single kayaks... Didn't see much in terms of wildlife but a nice way to spend an hour or so...

This place ive only been to once. I am a local and have been to many nicer places. Scenery isnt really all that nice compared to other parks here. Its worth a drive through i guess but i wouldnt recommend going here for a whole day or camping.

we kayaked around the island, it was a nice spot. My daughter was on a paddle board and saw 2manatee and a cub! There are quite a few iguanas sunning in the shrubs in the inlet close to where you launch from. I saw a few stingray in that area too!

We spent all day at the park with our children. We rented three kayaks. The prices were reasonable and well worth it. We went out on the ocean and explored the mangroves. We saw a sea turtle, baby shark, iguanas everywhere, and big fish. My husband fished all day too from beach and kayak. Great day!

We stayed in site #3 in the campground. The campground is small (less than 30 sites?) and seems new. There was some privacy to the sites with bushes and trees. The bathhouse was clean and newer looking. Our site was large and fairly close to the bathhouse. You have to climb a bunch of steps to get up to 2nd... More

Fun park to visit! Clean and well kept. You can rent kayaks and go on a tour around the park. Lots of fun!

We totally enjoyed the small but quaint park. We rented kayaks and went out to the sandbar then around the island. It was a nice experience and very reasonable. We saw a bald eagle and other wonderful birds. I would highly recommend this State Park!

The Keys are home to several state parks. If you're in the area, be sure to take a drive through Curry Hammock. While not huge, it's so pretty and serene. Any family would enjoy spending a day there. For older people, the views and beauty of the place are all that's needed.

Heard it was best kayaking and it is a nice little stretch in Mangroves, saw white Herons, Blue Heron, and 3 Iguana. But honesty we had a better Kayak from Robbie's Marina in the mangroves there. Teenage boys didn't like the beach here much so we didn't stay long. There seems to be good camping and a number of families... More

The highlight of this park, for me, was the nice beach. It's shallow, calm and sandy. When I got there, I immediately thought of how much my young grandkids would enjoy it. This isn't a large park, but it's got a nice camping area, which is always full in the winter months.
