We camped at John Pennekamp in a travel trailer over the July 4 holiday. Facilities are outstanding. Very clean, modern and in great order. Camp sites are rough-looking and "natural". They are not groomed and is little privacy. No ground fires so if you want pudgies (iron pie sandwiches), you have to use the grill. Many bugs, but that's Florida.... More

The park is very nice and good for a day at the water with barbecue and everything. You also can book different tours inside the park. I did the snorkeling at the reef tour. The costs of the tours are very low. You even can rent snorkeling equipment there. They have very well experienced guides for the tours. They help... More

This is a great national park where you can take a boat and snorkel with turtles, camp out, catch some rays on the beach and explore the mangrove. It's right at the beginning of the keys and very untouched nature.

Kids had a great time swimming and snorkeling and playing. Aquarium, glass bottom boats, and visitor center were closed, which was cruddy as we wanted to visit them, but it was ok nonetheless. Cannons and reefs were cool for the kids to see.

Would like to give two ratings for this park. Campground itself is 2 stars in terms of 'camping' experience, but the overall park is 4 star. Campground: I must say the facilities were good, washrooms were good (larger washroom was messier than the smaller one though), laundry facilities at large washroom were convenient, and we felt secure because of gate...

This campground was such a disappointment. Sites are very narrow, with no consideration for slides. While it does have full hook ups, they are very poorly designed. Sewer hook ups for your neighbors are sited right in your front door. Water is on opposite side from electric. It's a good quarter mile hike to the beach. Park itself is nice,... More

Would recommend this state park for those beginners to advanced snorkeling enthusiasts. Smaller beaches for sun dwellers as well as shaded spots with picnic tables. Very pleasant area to spend a Floridian afternoon

This was our second trip to the park. Last time we were here we went snorkeling from shore which was disappointing. I would recommend that you take the boat out if you want to snorkle. We did all the trails in the park and loved being able to identify all the trees. We enjoyed a picnic lunch at one of... More

Nice Campground close to the marina and dive shop. Clean facilities and friendly staff. Comment for campground administration: Why close the toilet/showers for 3 collective hours of cleaning starting at 9:30am when guests are getting ready for activities/check-out? Why not clean between 1pm and 4pm when guests are most likely to be out and about?
